Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
8/10 92% Holy Motors (2012) It's both obtuse and preposterous, but never less than riveting.‐ IGN Movies

8.5/10 80% A Hidden Life (2019) A Hidden Life is both inspiring and heartbreaking, and the result is Terrence Malick's best film in nearly a decade.‐ IGN Movies

5/10 71% Wrinkles the Clown (2019) Wrinkles the Clown is a documentary that frequently entertains, but lacks true insight into the viral phenomenon.‐ IGN Movies

6.6/10 63% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) At times it feels less like a detective story, and more like a history lesson. But the period setting is sumptuous, and Edward Norton brings true humanity to the role of Lionel Essrog.‐ IGN Movies

7.5/10 53% Guns Akimbo (2020) Daniel Radcliffe is a likable action lead, but it's Samara Weaving who truly shines in Guns Akimbo.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 81% Abominable (2019) A film that's all over the place. Yi is certainly a likable lead and Everest an entertaining foil, but beyond some stunning audio and visual moments, Abominable has little new to say concerning its clichéd subject.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 22% Lucy in the Sky (2019) Natalie Portman excels in Lucy in the Sky, an interesting character study that suffers when mixing fact and fiction.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) There's fun to be had watching the Ford executives clash, and the driving scenes are shot with real artistry and skill, but they're interspersed with scenes of true inertia.‐ IGN Movies

8.5/10 79% Jojo Rabbit (2019) Strikes just the right balance between comedy, tragedy, and drama, the result being a very funny WWII film that nevertheless carries an incredibly important message about the here and now.‐ IGN Movies

8/10 90% The Lighthouse (2019) As a rumination on loneliness, desolation, and madness, The Lighthouse is filled to the brim with disturbing dialogue and haunting images that will burrow into your brain.‐ IGN Movies

8.5/10 97% Knives Out (2019) Through clever plotting and smart sleight of hand, Johnson has crafted a whodunit that's worthy of Agatha Christie or Arthur Conan Doyle, and one that will have audiences guessing until the final few reels.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Eddie Murphy delivers his best performance in years in a biopic that's both hilarious, and unexpectedly touching.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2019
9.5/10 99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) Joon-ho's film straddles multiple genres, with comedy rubbing shoulders alongside drama, thriller, and eventually horror to tell a story that's as entertaining as it is socially incendiary.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 24% The Goldfinch (2019) Much like the painting at the centre of this tale, Theo's story both survives, and endures, despite the fragmented film's shortcomings.‐ IGN Movies

100% The Class Of '92 (2014) A balanced and even-handed account of this remarkable period in English football.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2019
76% Curse of Chucky (2013) The film itself is a strange and not entirely successful hybrid of continuation and reboot, re-introducing the character to new audiences through a story that nevertheless features multiple throwbacks to the original series of films.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2018
5/10 56% Frankenstein's Army (2013) There are some nice ideas at work in Frankenstein's Army and the monsters look great, but the 'found footage' conceit brings little to proceedings and for a horror movie there just aren't enough scares.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2018
6.7/10 100% Rewind This! (2013) Rewind This! is somewhat lacking in big-name first-hand accounts. But where the film is on firmer territory is in championing those lovers of the format who have ignored DVD, Blu-ray and digital downloads in favour of keeping the VHS dream alive.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
98% The Loved Ones (2012) With a narrative that surprises at every turn, committed performances from all involved, and a sense of humour as dark as the horror on display, The Loved Ones is a true horror gem.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2018
5.5/10 18% Absolutely Anything (2017) The result is a loosely knitted together series of vignettes, some of which raise titters, but the majority of which elicit groans.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted May 8, 2017
8.5/10 94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is an alien invasion movie for grown-ups; one that's lacking in action, explosions and all-out war, but heavy on tension, drama, and raw emotion.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2016
7.5/10 86% A Monster Calls (2017) It bravely tackles a difficult subject with grace and sensitivity, and its message is deeply moving and affecting.‐ IGN Movies UK
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2016
7/10 49% Mascots (2016) Another funny and deeply affectionate portrait of an intriguing sub-culture.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
8.5/10 86% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) Light on gore but heavy on brains, The Girl With All the Gifts delivers what it means to be living, undead or a new combination of the two, with originality and guts.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
7/10 81% Colossal (2017) It isn't always successful, but when the film works, it's a blast.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
92% Raw (2017) Raw is as lyrical a film about cannibalism as you are ever likely to see, so ignore the hype about audience members fainting or being sick, and instead revel in the strange beauty of its twisted tale.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
9/10 37% Blair Witch (2016) Blair Witch is a terrific sequel that stays true to the spirit of the original while at the same time developing and expanding upon the legend.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
7.3/10 No Score Yet Creature Designers - The Frankenstein Complex (Le complexe de Frankenstein) (2016) The anecdotes come thick and fast in this likeable documentary about the artists who craft nightmare fuel for a living.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2016
7/10 83% Beware the Slenderman (2018) Beware the Slenderman is a little long, and rarely an easy watch. But it tells an important story about the dangers of the Internet, and the potentially deadly consequences that exposing the wrong material to the wrong people can have.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
7/10 54% Jason Bourne (2016) Jason Bourne has a passable plot and a couple of pulsating sequences, which already makes it better than the majority of action movies.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
8/10 89% Man vs. Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler (2015) An emotional rollercoaster that will make you happy and sad and pleased that a guy like Tim McVey is out there, nibbling dots and avoiding his tail, all the while striving for his dream.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2016
7/10 38% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) If you can leave your social conscience at the door, and don't mind a duff plot and paper-thin characters, you'll find Grimsby to be very, very funny.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2016
82% Eddie The Eagle (2016) A likeable family film that - much like Eddie's own exploits - is guaranteed to put a big smile on your face.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2016
23% Kill Your Friends (2016) Kill Your Friends starts out an enjoyably nasty satire of the music industry, but loses focus when a thriller element is thrown into the mix.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2015
7.2/10 63% Spectre (2015) While it's a stylish feature, the film lacks true substance, with SPECTRE a solid effort but one that falls frustratingly short of greatness.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2015
7.4/10 91% Bone Tomahawk (2015) A genre mash-up that deliver on both fronts, Bone Tomahawk is a two-hour blast that features great dialogue, strong characters, and imaginative and memorable kills.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2015
6.8/10 73% Everest (2015) While it looks stunning, the result is a film that largely puts spectacle before substance, with this tragic story deserving of more.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2015
7/10 91% Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made (2016) From Heart of Darkness to Lost in La Mancha, there have been many great documentaries about the trials and tribulations of making movies, and Raiders! deserves to takes its place alongside them.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2015
7/10 16% The Transporter Refueled (2015) The result is a film that's as good as its predecessors, and suggests that Refueled isn't the last that we'll see of this particular incarnation of the Transporter.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2015
6.6/10 63% The Bad Education Movie (2015) Ultimately there are enough good jokes to make the feature a worthwhile endeavour.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2015
6.8/10 55% Minions (2015) Minions starts strong but quickly runs out of steam.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2015
7.7/10 88% Mr. Holmes (2015) Mr. Holmes is a moving character study that manages to find something new to say about this most enduring and beloved character.‐ IGN Movies

6.8/10 43% Spike Island (2015) Good gags, great performances and a spectacular soundtrack rescue an otherwise average coming-of-age drama.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted May 4, 2015
6/10 69% Zombeavers (2015) A mildly entertaining movie that lacks the beaver bite required of such material.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2015
9/10 92% Ex Machina (2015) Anchored by three dazzling central performances, it's a stunning directorial debut from Alex Garland that's essential viewing for anyone with even a passing interest in where technology is taking us.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2015
7.8/10 91% The Guest (2014) While the tone is uneven and the climax something of a disappointment, The Guest is a film that succeeds thanks to the audacious efforts of its writer and director and the talents of an excellent cast.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
7.5/10 59% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) The best sequence is without doubt the film's first. But the central battle is indeed spectacular, and as 'The Age of Orc' approaches, it rounds out this particular story in stirring and emotional fashion.‐ IGN Movies

7.5/10 34% V/H/S: Viral (2014) If you like your horror mixed with laughs, this anthology threequel is a blast.‐ IGN Movies
