Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
71% Tenet (2020) Tenet is a complex and yet deceptively simple film that has the capacity to leave you loving and loathing it at the same time. As it is so hellbent on telling us: yes, we can have it both ways.‐ Screen Queens

82% Clueless (1995) With a huge impact on popular culture thanks to its fashion, performances, and stand-out soundtrack, Clueless is far smarter and wittier in its commentary on gender and class than its title would have you think. ‐ The Afternoon Show

63% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) A tedious and entirely predictable film that in spite of its super-sonic hedgehog lead manages to feel dull and slow. A wasted Jim Carey fails to save a movie in which none of the characters inspires any sympathy. ‐ The Afternoon Show

72% Vivarium (2020) A postmodern mash-up of genres and aesthetic styles, Vivarium is a suburban horror story ideal for our capitalist - and pandemic - age. ‐ The Afternoon Show

93% The Perfect Candidate (2020) A powerful film about systems of oppression and personal emancipation with glorious cinematography and a stand-out lead performance.‐ The Afternoon Show

95% Little Women (2019) A warm-hearted adaptation that sees the talented Gerwig directing with a keen eye for the parallels between women's lives in the 19th and 21st centuries. With stand-out performances from a wonderful cast, this is a charming and fresh take on Little Women.‐ The Afternoon Show

89% The Two Popes (2019) A surprisingly humorous film that reflects on power and how people use and abuse it, The Two Popes delivers stand-out performances from Hopkins and Pryce while never quite succeeding in shedding the feeling of an over-long stage play.‐ The Afternoon Show

93% Ordinary Love (2020) A bleak but beautifully shot love story about surviving cancer and the harsh, day-to-day realities of sustaining romantic relationships with two excellent lead performances.‐ The Afternoon Show

94% Honey Boy (2019) Alma Har'el's exquisite direction creates dreamy transitions between Otis's past and present in a meditation on cinema's power both to trigger and to heal.‐ The Afternoon Show

63% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) A ponderous neo-noir that comes to life with rhythmic style thanks to some excellent performances and the discordant score‐ The Afternoon Show

51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) The Rise of Skywalker pays dividends in fan service, and it pushes every nostalgic button on its dashboard. It's very funny, and by twists and turns incredibly sad, too, with surprises so big that Han Solo's ego looks small by comparison.‐ Sight and Sound

93% Monos (2019) Beautiful, intense, and surreal, Monos is a startling ensemble film about child soldiers that attacks the senses with its brutal imagery and eerie, scratching score. ‐ The Afternoon Show

70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) A surprisingly progressive return to form for the Terminator franchise. Dark Fate goes back to its 90s roots and allows its female leads to shine in preposterous but comically camp action sequences. ‐ The Afternoon Show

51% Black and Blue (2019) Despite Naomie Harris's best efforts, Black and Blue turns the harsh realities of racism and white supremacy into a spectacle that feels way off-target.‐ The Afternoon Show

100% Our Ladies (2019) A must-see riot of girl power and teen spirit that redefines how girls get to have sex and talk about sexuality on screen.‐ Sight and Sound

82% Judy (2019) On the glittering surface of things, Judy is critical of her abusers - yet I left the theatre feeling more dejected than a witch caught with no umbrella in the rain.‐ Screen Queens

100% Make Up (2020) Claire Oakley's genre-bending debut feature slowly reveals itself as a lesbian romance that's as much about learning to love yourself as your lover, and it's a gorgeous and inventive piece of cinema.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
87% Animals (2019) A gorgeous, sometimes bitterly on the nose evocation of the choices women face when they want to grow up but can't stop having fun, Animals is a bold film in love with its two firebrand female leads.‐ The Afternoon Show

79% Photograph (2019) A languorous love letter to Mumbai that plays with the cinematic conventions of romance.‐ The Afternoon Show
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
57% The Hummingbird Project (2019) In a film so dull it would make the flap of a hummingbird's wing feel liked it lasted for eternity, a stellar cast is squandered on shallow characters and a what-were-they-thinking script.‐ The Afternoon Show
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
83% Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score) (2020) A little too try-hard Wes-Anderson-whimsical in its visual style, Sometimes, Always, Never succeeds as a sweet and emotionally resonant tale about grief, loss, and remembering those who are still there.‐ The Afternoon Show

90% Diego Maradona (2019) An overtly (and sometimes over) sympathetic documentary that is ambitious in its attempt to humanise the man behind the myths.‐ The Afternoon Show

41% Stuber (2019) An unfunny comedy of epic proportions... I watched this film so you didn't have to.‐ The Afternoon Show
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
96% Only You (2018) A well-observed and intimate film that, despite its painfully straight-white storytelling, invites us to share an emotional experience with its relatable characters.‐ The Afternoon Show
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
54% The Dead Don't Die (2019) A millennial-friendly ironic mashup of deadpan comedy and zombie horror that offers a commentary on the climate emergency - and no matter what, it's going to end badly.‐ The Afternoon Show

71% My Favorite Fabric (Mon tissu préféré) (2018) My Favourite Fabric is a finely tuned film that ultimately empowers Nahla in her quest for sexual satisfaction and intimacy. ‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
71% Little Tickles (Les chatouilles) (2018) A confident and startling debut, Bescond and Métayer's film will make you laugh and cry. It is a compelling and necessary story in the era of #MeToo, and one that will no doubt be important to survivors of abuse as well as film lovers.‐ Sight and Sound

89% Rocketman (2019) Rocketman ramps the camp up to 11, throws on some sequinned spectacles, and sparks fireworks of pure joy in glitzy song-and-dance routines.‐ Sight and Sound

94% I Used to Be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story (2018) I Used to be Normal does great work at getting behind the screaming headlines and shrieking stereotypes to the emotional and psychological realities of women's experiences. ‐ The Mary Sue

83% Ad Astra (2019) Ad Astra has a glorious surface when viewed from a distance. Look at the details in closer proximity, though, and there are many unresolved conflicts in a story that doesn't necessarily have so much to recommend it.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

55% Lux Æterna (2019) The problem with Lux Æterna is that it fails to fully see or hear women as real people.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted May 20, 2019
97% Pain and Glory (Dolor y gloria) (2019) A glorious ode to the power of cinema and an absolute delight to watch.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

90% Bull (2020) A mesmerising film, and one that will linger in the imagination long after the sounds of the crickets have faded.‐ Sight and Sound
