Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
33% Halal Daddy (2017) What drags the movie down is a reliance on broad gags and characters and an oddly paced narrative.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

No Score Yet Revolutions (2016) Like many of its subjects, Revolutions is fierce, lovable and scrappy.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

100% Inversion (Varoonegi) (2017) Inversion feels like a neo-realist movie. The settings appear tangible and authentic. The actors disappear into their characters. There is no soundtrack, just the noise of radios and ringtones.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

76% Suntan (2017) Suntan is further proof that people should sit-up and take notice of the Greek "weird-wave", a movement brimming with fresh ideas, tackling dark, social issues.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) Rules Don't Apply doesn't hang together but for fans of Beatty there are glimmers of his now trademark stylish direction and witty dialogue.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

95% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) If one wasn't swayed by Oldboy or [Chan-Wook's] underrated English-language debut Stoker, The Handmaiden may be the one to convince audiences of this remarkable talent.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

97% Aquarius (2016) Aquarius allows the viewer to spend nearly two and a half hours with an intriguing, interesting and complex character - made even more fascinating by Braga's stellar work.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight is a reminder that cinema can be a profound human experience, a means of understanding experiences one may never face.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

83% Denial (2016) For fans of courtroom dramas or people who just enjoy seeing great character actors sink their teeth into a meaty script, Denial is more than worth the price of admission.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

87% A Monster Calls (2017) It is certainly emotional and looks beautiful but there is very little that stays with the viewer days after watching.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

82% Chevalier (2016) One is stuck with these unlikeable characters for 105 minutes, while they do very little to shock, to make the viewer laugh or to truly engage.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

25% Suicide Squad (2016) I am happy to report that Suicide Squad is a significant improvement over its lumpen predecessor.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

59% War Dogs (2016) What one is left with is a fascinating story and two charismatic lead turns that should be in a movie as good as they are.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

66% Anthropoid (2016) It's utterly compelling, tense and exciting -- all in equal measure.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

89% United States of Love (Estados Unidos de Amor) (2016) Wasilewski shoots the film in a similar method to directors like Kieslowski, Michael Haneke or Asghar Farhadi -- observing his central player's lives from an unobstrusive cold distance to allow the viewer to form their own interpretation on events.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

95% Gimme Danger (2016) Standard as it is, Gimme Danger succeeds at being a very enjoyable documentary that shines a light on a great, great band. Sometimes that's more than enough.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

No Score Yet South (2017) Overall, South is an enjoyable entry in both the road-trip and the coming-of-age sub-genre.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) It will clearly work for its target demographic. That said, a more focused screenplay and a greater reliance on character wouldn't go amiss in the obligatory sequel.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

70% Moscow Never Sleeps (2017) As a love-letter to the Russian capital, the movie succeeds.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
52% The Accountant (2016) By over-complicating, while simultaneously dumbing down, the story and by adding too many extraneous characters, The Accountant underserves a decent sounding premise.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
63% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Miss Peregrine is akin to catching up with an old friend and finding you still enjoy their company.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

95% De Palma (2016) Just to hear the director discuss his work and his influences, all while seeing his iconic scenes on the big screen once again make this essential viewing for cinephiles.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

83% Julieta (2016) It's great to see Almodóvar return to the women-centred films that brought him international success and to witness his aplomb for creating colourful movies. However, one can't help but wish the film was as bold narratively as its visuals.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

80% Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village (2016) One of the most engrossing documentaries of the year thus far.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
