Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

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

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

3/5 70% Café Society (2016) Can respectably take its place alongside Woody's catalogue of one-movie-a-year releases.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 82% 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

2/5 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Perhaps it's time for Ice Age to accept that time has moved on.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/5 86% 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

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

3/5 69% Central Intelligence (2016) Central Intelligence is dumb fun of the highest order.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 79% The Conjuring 2 (2016) It's quality horror and something Wan appears able to conjure up at will.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | 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

3/5 23% 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

1/5 6% 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

3/5 57% 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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

4/5 95% 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
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 73% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Our Kind of Traitor is our kind of thriller.‐ Sky Movies

18% 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

4/5 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) It hits just the right note - which is more than Florence ever managed.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted May 5, 2016
3/5 53% 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

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

2/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) While occasionally diverting and frequently visually impressive, it's largely incoherent ...‐ Sky Movies

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
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2016
4/5 83% Victoria (2015) Wildly ambitious, the result is totally gimmick free and possibly the most emotionally pulsating film you'll see all year.‐ Sky Movies

2/5 29% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) For a big fat wedding this is pretty thin gruel.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2016
4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) An animated outing that propels Disney's historical success at anthropomorphisation to new heights.‐ Sky Movies

2/5 9% Rock the Kasbah (2015) Murray has rarely been so charmless in a movie ...‐ Sky Movies

3/5 91% Anomalisa (2015) Occasionally just a little too pleased with itself, this is nevertheless a weirdly rewarding exercise with Michael's debilitating detachment made all the worse by being experienced by a puppet.‐ Sky Movies

12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) Always the poor relation of The Hunger Games, this only underlines its position as a sci-fi also-ran.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 62% Truth (2015) Solid but uninspiring.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2016
3/5 9% The Forest (2016) Zada fails to capitalise on his promising premise, instead relying on cheap jump-shocks - wide-eyed Nipponese schoolgirls running at the camera - where he could be mining the creepy legend for genuine scares.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2016
3/5 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) An intriguing, time-shifting tale of obsession and one of Hollywood's better remakes.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 64% The Finest Hours (2016) As sea-borne dramas go, this one's pretty ship-shape.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2016
4/5 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) It's a compelling watch as Guadagnino darkens the tone from sunny farce to something far darker as the quartet surrender sexually to their urges in a way that ensures nobody winds up a winner.‐ Sky Movies

1/5 18% Jem and the Holograms (2015) This live action dud is basically what you imagine a bargain-basement Star is Born would be like if it was directed by the chap who did a Step Up sequel, a horror producer and Justin Bieber's manager.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 97% The Survivalist (2017) Foreboding and dark, this couldn't be further from the multiplex representations of a shiny dystopian future.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2016
4/5 84% Deadpool (2016) A welcome acid corrective to the machine-tooled, marketing-driven product lapped up by the multiplex masses.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2016
3/5 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) An unnatural entertainment.‐ Sky Movies

2/5 16% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) Ultimately, fans of the franchise won't be disappointed while the rest of us will be quietly hoping that Homeland Security step in a finish the job.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 29% Dad's Army (2016) Quaint in era of quick-fire, on-message political humour, McColl recognises the strengths and virtues of the original series to deliver a cinematic experience akin to a buttered scone and a nice cup of tea.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2016
2/5 49% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) After sitting through this slickly violent clarion call for American political hawks to turn on the doves you might have thought that screenwriter Chuck Hogan was the right-wing spawn of Chuck Norris and Hulk Hogan.‐ Sky Movies
