Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
87% Lion (2016) With a story this strong, you can't really go wrong and director Garth Davis provides a sure guiding hand with Saroo's barely believable story unfolding largely in chronological order. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jan 19, 2017
2/5 42% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Vin-ophiles will love it...but it's of limited appeal to anybody who didn't think the age of gender enlightenment was something that happened to other people. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jan 19, 2017
4/5 89% Jackie (2016) [An] engagingly unconventional chronicle of the days between JFK's assassination and his elaborate state funeral. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jan 19, 2017
5/5 93% La La Land (2016) Sweet-natured in a time of often bitter cynicism, this buoyantly uplifting fable sets the soul soaring and the heart beating. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jan 13, 2017
5/5 87% A Monster Calls (2017) An eye-pricklingly subtle chronicle of a young boy coming to terms with the reality that his single mom is dying. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jan 5, 2017
3/5 31% Passengers (2016) Even if the story never really lives up to its premise, it's a smooth ride. Just make sure you stay awake until you reach the end. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Dec 22, 2016
3/5 42% Office Christmas Party (2016) Delivering a santa's sack crammed with zingers, Speck and Gordon offer up a Christmas comedy that never flags and reveals the considerable potential of Miller, a comedian in the style of Blade of Glory's Jon Heder. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Dec 8, 2016
3/5 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) A workmanlike account...but a story that deserves better. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Dec 8, 2016
3/5 61% Snowden (2016) It's a well-constructed story that does not require any cinematic flamboyance to make its point. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Dec 1, 2016
4/5 95% Moana (2016) A nautical yarn that leaves lesser children's fare all at sea. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Dec 1, 2016
3/5 43% Dog Eat Dog (2016) The subject matter may be familiar but Schrader and screenwriter Matthew Wilder unashamedly relish the possibilities offered by a go-for-broke storyline ... ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Nov 17, 2016
4/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Rowling has conjured up another classic-in-the-making. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Nov 17, 2016
3/5 23% American Pastoral (2016) [McGregor] never does the richly-layered book justice, starting brightly but increasingly flailing as the narrative becomes overwrought when it should understate. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Nov 10, 2016
3/5 51% The Accountant (2016) You'll enjoy it - count on it. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Nov 3, 2016
4/5 72% Nocturnal Animals (2016) The icy sophistication of the Los Angeles art scene jarringly collides with the hot violence of the west Texas desert in director Tom Ford's bruisingly accomplished revenge thriller. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Nov 3, 2016
4/5 93% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) Fragmented yet fascinating ... ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Oct 27, 2016
3/5 83% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Thrilling and disturbing in equal measure, this pumps as much adrenaline as it does oil. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 29, 2016
2/5 47% Free State of Jones (2016) The film would have been stronger if Ross had focussed on one aspect of the life of Newton - whose piety is never questioned - instead of trying to cram most of it into feature length. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) It's efficient but soulless and relies on well-choreographed action sequences to maintain the attention rather than any effort to flesh out the characters led by Denzel Washington's monosyllabic lawman Sam Chisholm. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 22, 2016
3/5 97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) It's far from original - grumpy-old-git-bond-with-mouthy-adolescent - but is delivered with such joy-infused enthusiasm it's almost impossible to resist. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 15, 2016
5/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) Elevated by a richly detailed script from Sicario writer Taylor Sheridan, who pens roughly authentic dialogue and fleshes out even the most peripheral characters to give the story a genuine heft. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 8, 2016
4/5 82% Captain Fantastic (2016) Fantastic stuff. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 8, 2016
3/5 66% Anthropoid (2016) A solid, well-crafted and respectful chronicle of a terrible chapter in the war against Hitler. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 8, 2016
3/5 70% Café Society (2016) Can respectably take its place alongside Woody's catalogue of one-movie-a-year releases. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 1, 2016
3/5 83% Sausage Party (2016) Bon appetit! ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Sep 1, 2016
4/5 83% Julieta (2016) Returning to the female-centric style with which he made his name, Almodovar demonstrates he's a film-maker who retains a master's touch. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Aug 25, 2016
4/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) Get in the swim. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 28, 2016
2/5 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Perhaps it's time for Ice Age to accept that time has moved on. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/5 85% Maggie's Plan (2016) There's more than a hint of Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach but writer-director Rebecca Miller's gentle mockery is more soft-focus than hard-hitting. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) It's a solid enough adventure yarn even if you won't be bellowing its virtues from the tree-tops. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/5 69% Central Intelligence (2016) Central Intelligence is dumb fun of the highest order. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 30, 2016
3/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) It's quality horror and something Wan appears able to conjure up at will. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 16, 2016
2/5 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) It's harmless stuff although the swerve into gritty social justice may not win it many fans among a fanbase more concerned with blow-dries than drive-bys. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 16, 2016
3/5 22% The Boss (2016) McCarthy's superlative ability to riff on a theme provides some good laughs - check out the scene where she casts a critical eye over Claire as she's about to go out on a date. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 9, 2016
1/5 7% Mother's Day (2016) Producer Michael Karz ascertains that "When you see a Garry Marshall movie, you know you're going to leave happy". Make that suicidal. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 9, 2016
3/5 58% Me Before You (2016) It's not a cop out and the final scenes reach an emotional intensity that cheery chappy Nicky Sparks could only dream of. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 2, 2016
4/5 57% Money Monster (2016) It's light and frothy but at its heart there is a steely core, perfectly illustrated by a climax that doesn't play by Hollywood's rules in the same way the high finance refuses to play by any set of rules at all. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 26, 2016
4/5 98% Love & Friendship (2016) It's a comic triumph with script, cast and performances combining to provide a perfect storm of mannered nastiness and an Austen adaptation that makes Pride + Prejudice + Zombies look positively lifeless. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 26, 2016
4/5 96% Sing Street (2016) Exuberant in a winningly ramshackle way, this is the cinematic equivalent of a classic disposable pop song and - as Noel Coward pointed out - it's "strange how potent cheap music is..."​ ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Our Kind of Traitor is our kind of thriller. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 12, 2016
5/5 98% Mustang (2015) Truthful, touching and, ultimately, uplifting. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 12, 2016
20% I Saw the Light (2016) Like the Grand Ole Opry who eventually sacked him for persistent drunkenness - your patience begins to wear thin. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 5, 2016
4/5 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) It hits just the right note - which is more than Florence ever managed. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 5, 2016
3/5 52% Demolition (2016) Treading an awkward path between zany and desolate, this is salvaged by a strong performance from Gyllenhaal who puts firm flesh on the bones of Davis, rendering him likeable when his behaviour appears cavalier. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3/5 47% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) It never out-stays its welcome even if it's not exactly a cinematic revolution.‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 21, 2016
4/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) One in the eye for the sabre-rattlers. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 14, 2016
2/5 30% Criminal (2016) In short, Criminal is criminal. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 14, 2016
2/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) While occasionally diverting and frequently visually impressive, it's largely incoherent ... ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) Hobbled by rigid formula, this lacks the off-kilter allure of Fletcher's previous movies Wild Bill and Sunshine on Leith and comes across as pure crowd-pleaser. ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Mar 31, 2016
4/5 84% Victoria (2015) Wildly ambitious, the result is totally gimmick free and possibly the most emotionally pulsating film you'll see all year. ‐ Sky Movies
