Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
64% Castle in the Ground (2019) While Castle In The Ground presents a strange narrative and tonal changes it can't juggle, it's a film filled with great, understated performances. ‐ Film Inquiry

72% Vivarium (2020) Led by strong performances from Eisenberg and Poots, Vivarium is certainly worth a watch. ‐ Film Inquiry

75% To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (2020) It had all the right ingredients for a great teen comedy sequel, but the end product is a shallow attempt at capturing the magic and success of the first film. ‐ Film Inquiry

66% The Wave (2020) Featuring a solid turn from Justin Long, The Wave is a delightfully different drug comedy. While it may not be the most important film of the year, its messages about anyone being able to change and chasing happiness feel timely and engaging.‐ Film Inquiry

83% Just Mercy (2020) While it's undoubtedly a powerful story and film, full of great performances, Just Mercy feels like it's designed to win awards, at the cost of authenticity and real emotion.‐ Film Inquiry

92% Uncut Gems (2019) Uncut Gems is a breathless film; it will literally take your breath away. It's almost panic attack -inducing and at the very least, heart-rate increasingly tense, a viscerally physical cinema experience. ‐ Film Inquiry

52% Rabid (2019) Rabid is a reboot done right; it honours the original, but never bows down in front of it, telling its own story on its own terms. ‐ Film Inquiry

77% Frozen II (2019) Frozen 2 is almost the perfect sequel. Despite some wobbliness in the beginning, this is a worthy and entertaining sequel to one of the best animated films of the decade.‐ Film Inquiry

68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Maybe Double Tap doesn't need to reinvent the wheel it's trying to run over zombies with, but it can just be a nice stroll down memory lane, revisiting some old friends and killing some more zombies. In conclusion, it's a bloody good time. ‐ Film Inquiry

44% The Addams Family (2019) While it may not be either scary or particularly funny, The Addams Family is worth a watch for its voice cast, but disappointment is imminent.‐ Film Inquiry

95% Rocks (2019) There's nothing wrong with a good period drama, especially if its concerns women's rights, but Rocks is simply so full of life it's hard not be swept away by its beats. ‐ Film Inquiry

100% La Llorona (2019) It's a singular piece of filmmaking, one that deals with the ugly and painful history of Guatemala in a new, fresh way. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2019
92% Adoration (2019) Fabrice du Welz has crafted a visually arresting and magical film that never quite reaches its full potential but serves as a neat little film in its own right.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2019
No Score Yet Lynn + Lucy (2019) Lynn + Lucy is an interesting and fascinating piece of work and Boulifa is a director to watch out for, as he shows immense promise and talent here, even if the film doesn't feel quite as satisfying as it should. ‐ Film Inquiry

91% Monsoon (2019) While Monsoon is pretty to look at, it doesn't make up for the overwhelming familiarity of the narrative. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2019
61% Hope Gap (2020) The film has a lived-in feeling, but it doesn't erase the fact that Hope Gap is simply too generic and dull with characters you won't want to root for. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2019
83% Synchronic (2019) It could have done with some more of the same weirdness that made The Endless so fascinating, but it's a fine addition to Benson and Moorhead's filmography. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
82% Family Romance, LLC (2019) Ultimately, the film doesn't quite manage to explore its own themes in a satisfying way. Despite a haunting last scene, the film lacks teeth and hunger and it's hard to relate to anyone or anything on screen. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2019
84% Downton Abbey (2019) The film takes a simple premise and executes it well enough, providing one last hurrah for those dazzled by the beloved show. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
92% And Then We Danced (2020) It's an unmissable, touching film about dance, identity and everything in between. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2019
25% Otherhood (2019) The idea is good, but it isn't developed enough to make it a fully fleshed out story with intriguing and multi-dimensional characters. Otherhood ends up being forgettable, boring and at times insulting.‐ Film Inquiry

71% Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable (2019) It might be inspirational but a great documentary it doesn't make. All good films, especially documentaries have conflict and that is lacking from Lieber's film.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
52% Summer Night (2019) Summer Night is a perfectly sweet film about the hot, hazy nights we've all had and can look back to with adoration and nostalgia.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2019
0% Hallowed Ground (2019) Hallowed Ground is a massive disappointment. One can't quite figure out whether it genuinely is going for that campy B-movie vibe, but even that wouldn't excuse the terrible writing. ‐ Film Inquiry

82% Room for Rent (2019) Room For Rent is a lovely little thriller gem, a real diamond in the rough. It's not a class A film or cinema at it's purest, but it explores some fascinating themes and one of Lin Shaye's best performances.‐ Film Inquiry

89% Rocketman (2019) Rocketman is a real winner with a career-defining performance from Taron Egerton as Elton John, and it proves Fletcher still has it.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted May 20, 2019
88% Sorry We Missed You (2020) Featuring fantastic performances, especially from Kris Hitchin and Katie Proctor, who plays the family's daughter caught in the middle, Sorry We Missed You is a must-see film for anyone who has ever had a crappy job.‐ Film Inquiry

50% Tolkien (2019) While Tolkien isn't quite as exciting as one might hope, it's a very decent film. It's competently made, beautifully visualised and at times even excellent. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted May 10, 2019
31% The Silence (2019) The Silence is worth a watch because of Tucci and Tucci alone, but if you crave a good film, just pick up a copy of A Quiet Place instead.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2019
58% Pet Sematary (2019) Pet Sematary won't be the worst horror film you see all year, but it also won't be making appearances on anyone's top 10 lists come the end of the year.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2019
60% Tyrel (2018) Tyrel works best as an examination of masculinity and race. It's fascinating and Silva is smart enough to let the camera just observe his subjects and let the audience make their own conclusions about what's unfolding on screen.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2019
57% The Cannibal Club (2019) It's essential viewing for viewers interested in social satire and aren't afraid of a little blood and cannibalism.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2019
81% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2019) Knife + Heart constantly walks the very fine line between a comedy and a true horror. It at times excels at both, but rarely infuses the two into a coherent film. ‐ Film Inquiry

67% The White Crow (2019) The White Crow's biggest problem is Fiennes' inability to make Nureyev a pleasant protagonist.‐ Film Inquiry

93% Fighting with My Family (2019) Fighting With My Family is a lovely little British gem and while it's not perfect, Merchant shows admirable potential as a director. ‐ Film Inquiry

7% The Amityville Murders (2019) What could have been an exciting entry into the Amityville saga turns out to be a tasteless piece of mildly supernatural fecal matter.‐ Film Inquiry

85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) The Lego Movie 2 achieves the impossible. It's a rare film; a perfectly crafted sequel that expands on the world and mythology of its predecessor, but stands firmly on its own little Lego-legs.‐ Film Inquiry
