Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/5 89% Cinema Paradiso (Nuovo Cinema Paradiso) (1988) This is one of the finest films about innocence ever made, a perfect picture of a time when the cinema was the only source of laughter and joy.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 98% Roman Holiday (1953) The best comedy ever written on the horrors of being a royal.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 96% Gravity (2013) What makes this by far the best film of the year is not the haiku-like storyline or Stone's heart-stopping scramble... but the tears. Gravity is one of the most outrageously emotionally manipulative films I have ever seen.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 90% Frozen (2013) This is simply the best children's film in ages, a total frosty delight.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) The whole thing is pulsing, brilliant and lean. It is a breathtakingly bold film, with knife-sharp responses.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 92% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) This is a spooky and brilliant film that forces the viewer not simply to feel, like so many big crowdpleasers, but to think.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) The result is a brilliantly funny, immaculately structured film about hysteria and greed. It couldn't go wrong.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 94% All Is Lost (2013) It is a bold and masterful film, and Redford is great.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) About once a year, a film bursts out of nowhere that's simply the funniest thing since the last funniest film of the summer. This one is a sharp, smart and hilarious frat comedy that's everything Bad Neighbours should have been, but wasn't.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 97% Mr. Turner (2014) It is such an extraordinary revelation, a breathtaking and acutely observed meditation on the intricacies of Victorian life, complete with a tour de force by Timothy Spall as the painter JMW Turner.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 96% '71 (2015) This is one of the most extraordinary films I've seen this year, a knuckle-mashing, head-smashing, Tommy-bashing tour de force.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 95% Nightcrawler (2014) What a slick and thrilling vampire B-movie this is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 91% La La Land (2016) A fizzy surprise.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 89% My Scientology Movie (2017) By turns funny and perceptive.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 93% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) Werner Herzog's ode to the internet is both fascinating and probing.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 88% Jackie (2016) Bizarre yet irresistible.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 91% Elle (2016) What a triumph of dark desires Paul Verhoeven's latest film is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 88% Lady Macbeth (2017) Sometimes a glorious film appears like a cold dart out of an open sky.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted May 1, 2017
4/5 89% The World's End (2013) The result is a sweet, silly and sad film that is the comedy of the summer, a quiet ode to Britishness and the pub, and to the unshakeable notion that nothing will come between a man and his pint.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 75% Godzilla (2014) Edwards has clearly spent a lot of time trying to make Godzilla spectacular, showing him glide beneath the waves, and restoring his original power a blast of bright blue radiation. He really is Hiroshima made flesh.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 90% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Even by blockbuster standards, this is some heavily recycled material, and it's pretty long. But it's well done and will spirit away a cold Saturday afternoon nicely.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 53% Lovelace (2013) It is unpretentious and moving, and Seyfried is great.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 51% Pain & Gain (2013) The most shocking thing about the new Michael Bay film is... not the orange, grunting criminals pumping a) iron, b) fists and c) other people, but the gradual realisation that this could be Bay's most intellectual film yet.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Mad, funny junk.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
4/5 41% Only God Forgives (2013) There's something intoxicating about a film that manages to be both very violent and very pretty: it is unlike anything I've seen before, and in my book that is genius.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 62% Non-Stop (2014) Liam Neeson! He has really cornered the Hollywood market in lone mad dads. If you want a crazed drunk giant running around waving two guns and at least one mobile phone and/or a bottle of whisky, call the star of Schindler's List.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 89% Straight Outta Compton (2015) This is more like an "afterschool special", as the former drug-dealer Eazy-E puts it, than a fearsomely violent movie. No bad thing. It is still a well-paced, well-made, perfectly enjoyable romp.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2018
4/5 80% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) The result is a superb performance from DiCaprio as the swaggering, shouting bastard, and probably Scorsese's best film in 15 years.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 88% Rush (2013) I never thought I would care about the 1976 Formula One championship or magnesium "parts" or wet-weather tyres, but for 120 minutes, Hemsworth's extraordinary manboobs changed all that.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 92% Frances Ha (2013) I went fully prepared to hate it -- tried quite hard, in fact -- but it's so inoffensive that I couldn't help but enjoy it.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 80% The Two Faces of January (2014) A slick Sunday-afternoon flick.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
4/5 84% The Way Way Back (2013) Collette gives a nervy performance as Pam, but the real stars are Janney and Rockwell, and a quirky script by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 91% Nebraska (2013) This is a grand and grown-up film that shows Payne back at the top of his form.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 89% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) Blue Is the Warmest Colour is the only mainstream film so far to treat a lesbian affair on equal terms with a heterosexual one. This is a proper romance, with all the usual jealousies and tiny idiocies.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
4/5 91% The Great Beauty (2013) I'd like to say there was a plot, only there isn't: it is simply a baroque and beautiful reflection of a five-decade romance with Rome.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 94% Stranger by the Lake (2014) This is a tale of danger and desires and extremely gay sportswear: possibly the Frenchest film I have ever seen.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
4/5 84% Seduced And Abandoned (2013) Seduced and Abandoned isn't a deeply intellectual film, but it is a wry and dry road trip that's worth a watch, at least for the pleasure of Baldwin playing the role he was born to play, Alec Baldwin.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
4/5 95% Her (2013) There are times when Her feels like genius, and times when it feels like one long and painful call to a call centre, because that's exactly what it is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
4/5 75% The Invisible Woman (2013) This is everything a period drama almost never is: underplayed, witty, poignant and, above all, real.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
4/5 93% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) What is remarkable is how brilliantly McConaughey has unpacked the role, in spite of being handed such an unlikely ragbag of attributes.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
4/5 89% Le Week-End (2014) This isn't just about sex, it's a film about ageing, and the slights and delights of realising your life has never been your own. Unlike many Hollywood films, it doesn't make older people look angry or infantile. How refreshing.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 87% Gone Girl (2014) You must go -- you must GO, even though I can't actually tell you why, because Pike and Affleck are excellent, perfectly cast as a pair of flinty, empty lovers at the centre of this flinty, empty anti-romcom.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) What a stunning and eerie film it is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
4/5 99% Starred Up (2014) O'Connell gives a steaming and screaming performance as Eric, a broken young man who has spent his life being slammed by his father.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 45% Ted 2 (2015) I am afraid I laughed from start to finish.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 88% The Wind Rises (2014) This is apparently Miyazaki's final film: a delicate and eerie treat.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
4/5 74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) I've long wondered what defines her world, but this confirms my suspicions: all it is really is deep, dribbling nostalgia, cut with an absorbingly intricate plot, delivered in the purest speedball form from Rowling's soothing pen.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2016
4/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) A mad cartoon comedy short stretched into a horrifyingly murderous 90-minute swearathon.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 97% Paddington (2015) It is quite unlike any other meditation on paranoia and displacement I have seen. It is perfect for kids.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2018
4/5 100% Of Horses and Men (2015) The Icelandic film Of Horses and Men is unlike anything I've seen this year, a weird and beautiful comedy.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
