Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 57% Interview (2007) Stagey filming aside, this is a sharp and controlled study of celebrity obsession. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 1, 2007
2/5 54% Princess (2006) A few decent ideas can't cover the fact this has been done a thousand times before. ‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 13% Mr. Woodcock (2007) It's not the worst film you'll see all year, but it's not going to wind up on anyone's honour roll, either. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 13, 2007
4/5 83% It's a Free World (2007) Ken Loach's latest deserves plaudits for taking on the issue of immigration from such an unexpected angle. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 5, 2007
3/5 100% John Waters: This Filthy World (2006) A fun fim from a fascinating man. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 28, 2007
3/5 43% The Brave One (2007) It wants to be a modern Taxi Driver; it manages to be the new Falling Down, with Foster as fierce as ever. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 28, 2007
4/5 90% Spirits of the Dead (1969) Intriguing and mostly successful. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 25, 2007
3/5 69% Disturbia (2007) Entertaining Hitchcock-lite for a generation that would rather dial P for pizza than M for murder. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 11, 2007
3/5 41% December Boys (2007) More Sunday afternoon filler than cinema sensation, it's a perfectly pleasant drama, but you'll struggle to remember it the next day. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 11, 2007
3/5 55% The Transformers - The Movie (1986) Charming, useless fun. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2007
4/5 92% Things to Come (1936) Spookily prescient in many of its ideas, this is fascinating whilst being a little clumsy and dated, even for its time. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 14, 2007
3/5 26% Ghost Rider (2007) A blockbuster that offers enough quirky pleasures to feel fresh and unpredictable. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 27, 2007
3/5 47% The Holiday (2006) There is bound to be a large appreciative audience for this chick flick. But it might not be you. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 30, 2006
3/5 18% After the Sunset (2004) As guilty pleasures go, this is as good as three rum punches on a hot afternoon at a beach bar. It won't do you any good, but hey, it's a lot of fun. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 1, 2006
2/5 72% Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004) For its writer-director, Sky Captain was a labour of love. For almost everyone else -- including the wooden cast -- it's just a labour. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 1, 2006
5/5 91% To Kill A Mockingbird (1962) A classic adaptation of an American classic. Storytelling doesn't get much better than this. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 6, 2005
3/5 42% Miss Congeniality (2000) A genuine crowdpleaser boasting a charming star turn, Miss Congeniality is indeed difficult to dislike, but hey, sometimes it's worth the effort. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 23, 2001
3/5 46% Maybe Baby (2000) An uneven stab at a romantic comedy, surprisingly unsure in places about whether to go for the gag or the pathos. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 8, 2001
3/5 78% Requiem for a Dream (2000) Not quite the masterpiece it was hailed to be in some quarters, Darren Aronofsky's grim, but lyrical addiction drama is nonetheless one of those rare films to fail because of a surfeit of ideas, rather than the opposite. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 7, 2001
2/5 46% The Cell (2000) Though at times beautiful and always disturbing, this is strangely devoid of meaning. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/5 72% Truly Madly Deeply (1991) In a brave directorial debut, Anthony Minghella appears to be trying to unfold the fact that rose-tinted memories of love are often more enthralling that the reality. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/5 56% Emmanuelle (1974) First time director Just Jaecklin's film is the movie that set the clichés for the soft core films to follow. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/5 77% The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999) An enjoyable exercise in colourful simplicity. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1/5 16% Graffiti Bridge (1990) All told, a fairly shameful enterprise, displaying a breathtaking paucity of imagination. ‐ Empire Magazine
