T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 49% Tell It to the Bees (2019) Aside from that, it's a touching and tender tale, seasoned with perhaps a spoonful too much schmaltz. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 86% Pavarotti (2019) Plenty for fans to enjoy here, but the uninitiated who are looking for a good yarn may be left wanting. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 53% The Lion King (2019) Audiences will get exactly what they expect, but that could turn out to be its ultimate undoing. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 42% Stuber (2019) A zingy script is brought to life by Nanjiani, arguably the comedic backbone of the whole movie. - Irish Independent EDIT

2/5 64% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) There are freaks, creaks and shrieks, but Annabelle Comes Home has a tangible problem with plot and pacing, which is fairly unforgivable in horror. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 56% The Dead Don't Die (2019) Where his previous outing Paterson (2016) was low on plot but cinematically rich on the lips, Dead Don't Die is a film attempting subversion, yet suffering from identity crisis. Jarmusch says it best when he says nothing at all. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 46% Generation Wealth (2018) Had Greenfield focused on her myriad brilliant subjects and delved a little deeper into their lives, Generation Wealth might have been a better film. - Irish Independent EDIT

4/5 100% Summer 1993 (Estiu 1993) (2018) Summer 1993 is a heart-wrenching triumph that gives full dues to the complexity of childhood trauma, as well as human fallibility. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 56% Hotel Artemis (2018) This is one of those movies whose script and one-liners have somehow fallen through the cracks in the directorial tussle for style over substance. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 93% First Reformed (2018) Yet in trying to bring the story to a powerful climax, Schrader lets things get too hectic and surreal, a final psychedelic scene undoing much of the film's hard work. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 47% Skyscraper (2018) The scenes run into the faintly ludicrous, but despite their video game qualities, are still wild fun nonetheless. - Irish Independent EDIT

2/5 55% Swimming with Men (2018) One can't help but feel it's a missed opportunity - not just to say something of note about masculinity, but to convey the true vagaries of middle age. - Irish Independent EDIT

3/5 54% The First Purge (2018) Yet The First Purge befalls a pacing problem: the first half of the film builds with tension as the dawn of the experiment looms. After that, it's a ceaseless spree of visceral, screeching violence. - Irish Independent EDIT

2/5 91% The Martian (2015) It's the nearest most of us will get to feeling like we've lived on Mars for an eternity. And that's not saying a lot. - The Herald (Ireland) EDIT

3/5 8% Survivor (2015) Ultimately, Survivor is not so much high-octane action as a slow fizzle. - The Herald (Ireland) EDIT

97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) The craziest, most delirious spectacle you're likely to lay eyes on this year. - The Herald (Ireland) EDIT
