Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
80% The Square (2017) The Square is a bold study of human selfishness and vulnerability, fully aware that the world today moves so fast, shouts so loud, and is unstable in a way that we haven't witnessed in recent history.‐ Mada Masr (Egypt)

4/5 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) The Dark Knight Rises not only ends on a perfect note but it also, as a whole, rounds off the trilogy beautifully.‐ Cairo360

2/5 No Score Yet Game Over (2012) The best that can be said about the film is that it isn't as bad as its catastrophe trailer suggests.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 No Score Yet Cima Ali Baba (2011) While the first part was funnier, the second was more interesting though neither film was particularly successful.‐ Cairo360

3.5/5 No Score Yet Ma' Sabq El Esrar (2012) Abdel Razek is great in a role that shows that she has something other to her repertoire than her sex appeal. ‐ Cairo360

2/5 No Score Yet El Almany (2012) El Almany is a straightforward, not particularly well made drama. It aims for gritty but more often than not lands somewhere in the vicinity of cheesy.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 No Score Yet Omar & Salma 3 (2012) It may not be smart but it is often funny and sometimes all you need of a film is a good laugh.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 No Score Yet Amn Dawlat (2012) Costume Designers: It is possible for an actress to look absolutely stunning without completely disregarding the character she's playing especially when the actress is very pretty to begin with. ‐ Cairo360

1.5/5 No Score Yet Hazz Said (2012) The problem with the current crop of films that attempt to tackle the revolution is that they're dated before they even make their way to the cinema and that they're by default, overly simplistic.‐ Cairo360

2/5 No Score Yet El Bar (2012) El Bar is by no means groundbreaking, even though some moments had definite potential It's not even one of those films that are so bad, they're good.‐ Cairo360

2/5 No Score Yet Taitah Rahibah (2012) One that's far more dire than the film's tonal issues, is its major cop out of an ending; a neat little package that makes Raouf seem more pathetic than he already does. ‐ Cairo360

1.5/5 No Score Yet Rad Fe'l (2012) Shoddy doesn't even begin to cover the mess that is this film. The plot's barely coherent, the acting's completely hammy and the film's climax shows up with a whimper instead of a bang.‐ Cairo360

4/5 98% Project Nim (2011) The film has various archival footage, old photos and many dialogues, full of tragedy.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 No Score Yet Wahed Saheh (2011) ... while the extensive use of voiceover manages to cram in a lot more about the characters than would normally be feasible, they still come across as rather shallow and their storylines occasionally become stereotypically melodramatic.‐ Cairo360

1/5 No Score Yet Reklam (2012) ... having a film come along that eroticises their lives while paying lip service to their rights is downright wrong.‐ Cairo360

1/5 No Score Yet Mr and Mrs Oweis (2012) This film was plainly painful to sit through... ‐ Cairo360

1/5 No Score Yet Geddo Habibi (2012) The actors involved in this movie are capable of so much better which makes this wreck even more depressing.‐ Cairo360

1.5/5 No Score Yet Hassal Khier (2012) Yes, this type of film isn't supposed to be taken seriously but films can be light and stupid without being offensive.‐ Cairo360

3.5/5 69% Footloose (2011) It's a really fun dance film that isn't hip-hop-oriented for a change and is, in this reviewer's opinion, much more entertaining than the original.‐ Cairo360

3/5 No Score Yet Three Musketeers (2012) The Three Musketeers is filled with beautiful costumes and sets, awesome swordfights and a pretty awesome airship fight.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 36% Restless (2011) ... the film isn't all that bad. It just requires an affinity for saccharine and a certain level of suspension of disbelief... ‐ Cairo360

1.5/5 2% One for the Money (2012) Think of her as Elle Woods from Legally Blonde minus the charm, intelligence and work ethic.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 26% This Means War (2012) Plot wise, the film is quite shaky.‐ Cairo360

4/5 83% Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) This is a fantastic spy film through and through... ‐ Cairo360

3.5/5 77% Jeff Who Lives at Home (2012) ... it's sweet, entertaining and unpredictable which sets it apart from most of the other comedies coming out this summer.‐ Cairo360

4/5 95% Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey (2011) It's a reminder of the people who affected our childhood so much and whose art form is being left behind in the age of Pixar and Dreamworks.‐ Cairo360

1/5 57% The Dictator (2012) The most offensive thing about this film is that it completely lacks a sense of humour. ‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
1.5/5 0% A Thousand Words (2012) The rest of the film is the kind that'll either put you to sleep or have you cringing over the fact that Murphy, one of the biggest names in comedy, has been reduced to doing this. ‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
3/5 77% A Dangerous Method (2011) More a romance and study of power than a history of psychoanalysis, the film manages to be reasonably entertaining and very well acted, though psychology buffs will probably find themselves wishing for more substance to the storyline.‐ Cairo360

2/5 No Score Yet Banat El Am (2012) Banat El Am probably would have been better had they used this opportunity to discuss the topics brought up, in a less shallow way. It could have been a perfect chance to discuss sexism in a way that would appeal to a mass audience of both genders.‐ Cairo360

1/5 3% Jack and Jill (2011) The real snag is that it isn't even a funny mess; it's just plain bad.‐ Cairo360

4/5 68% Our Idiot Brother (2011) Memo to Hollywood: there's absolutely no way that hideous glasses could manage to make Rashida Jones look anything less than stunning!‐ Cairo360

4/5 94% 50/50 (2011) It isn't sentimental, schmaltzy or melodramatic, which isn't to say that it isn't touching, because it is; only you'll be smiling instead of breaking out the tissues.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 36% Immortals (2011) While it clearly strives for the 'epic' label, Immortals falls far short of it.‐ Cairo360

3.5/5 27% Your Highness (2011) [Justin] Theroux's villainous warlock Leezar steals the show.‐ Cairo360

2.5/5 44% A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures (2011) Annoyingly cute is one way to describe this film; sickly sweet is another.‐ Cairo360

3.5/5 38% Skateland (2011) Skateland is a charming, beautiful film buoyed by an incredible soundtrack but held back by lacklustre performances of a potentially very likeable cast. Watch it for the visuals and the music.‐ Cairo360

3/5 No Score Yet X-Large (2011) ... despite the sheer proliferation of fat-person-eats-enough-food-for-an-army jokes, X Large doesn't deviate from this pattern.‐ Cairo360

3/5 50% The Rum Diary (2011) The first thing that stands out about this film is that it's gorgeous, and not just because it stars the combined beauties that are Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. ‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
3.5/5 94% Beauty and the Beast (1991) It's a drama, musical, comedy and romance all wrapped into one and done better than most live action films to boot.‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
2.5/5 59% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) Instead of the real Sherlock Holmes, we get some kind of psychotic, antisocial, mumbling genius who goes by the same name.‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
3/5 73% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) The Amazing Spider-Man is fun but by no means does it live up to its hype.‐ Cairo360

4.5/5 84% Jane Eyre (2011) ... suffice to say that this is a gorgeous, haunting adaptation of the classic novel.‐ Cairo360

1.5/5 No Score Yet Kaf Alqamar (2011) You're not getting anything new here.‐ Cairo360

3.5/5 77% Putty Hill (2011) [Matthew] Porterfield has achieved something hugely impressive; he's managed to make an improvised movie using regular people that is immensely watchable and not just in relation to the circumstances it was made under but in relation to movies in general ‐ Cairo360

3.5/5 86% A Monster in Paris (2011) It's quaint, a little rustic but magical in its own way.‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
3.5/5 78% Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) While the film is rather jumpy with abrupt switches from scene to scene, the cast and the dialogue more than make up for any flaws. For a film about divorce, it's surprisingly funny and romantic.‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
2.5/5 67% Ted (2012) There are glimpses of hilarity in there some of the jokes connect hard and there are some seriously awesome cameos, but it's just not enough to carry the entire film which plays more like a bunch of poorly connected, very funny skits than a cohesive film‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
2/5 39% Johnny English Reborn (2011) Half-assed spoofs like this just don't work and come off as rather lazy and lame.‐ Cairo360
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
2/5 66% Insidious (2011) The film's main source of horror - the spirits - seemed like they were borrowed from previous horror films. They're intended to be scary but having seen similar ones so many times before.‐ Cairo360
