T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 40% Justice League (2017) Moments of brevity are a welcome distraction, but the film's biggest laughs come at its own expense. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 31% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Sadly, a few bright sparks of inspiration are drowned out by faded covers and some experimental new stuff that should have stayed on the B-side. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 83% Blockers (2018) Blockers could contend with some of the fantastic indie comedies of recent years that are approaching the coming-of-age genre with wit and warmth. Unfortunately, too often Blockers settles for the cheap and crass. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) A feast for the eyes and the soul in equal measure, Isle of Dogs is certain to elicit new joys on each repeated viewing. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Fails to capture the emotional and physical toil that seven days in that pressure cooker would do to a person -- this feels more like an intense couple of hours than a protracted siege. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Ultimately Deadpool 2 is a step in the right direction, even if the series shoots itself in the foot by hinting at what this could be, if it grew up a little bit. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 70% The Happy Prince (2018) This respectful ode may feel more like a lurid slog, but one that will stay with you long after the vivacious rogue draws his final breath. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 55% The Bookshop (2018) Charming and inconsequential, The Bookshop perfectly evokes the sensation of losing yourself in a good book. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 54% Yardie (2018) Unfortunately, the film suffers from a lack of confidence in its story and its performances, leaving it overly reliant on lead character D's own narration. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 78% Black '47 (2018) Ham-fisted dialogue aside, Martin Feeney's crusade to put the world to rights is undeniably entertaining, if clumsily told. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Freedom Fields (2018) A tighter running time and a better exploration of the broader political context would provide the film a little more kick. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 86% Sometimes Always Never (2018) A dollhouse of dysfunction that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 100% The Spy Gone North (2018) A true story this good only comes along once in a generation. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 60% The Hummingbird Project (2019) Despite some interesting ideas and a stellar cast, The Hummingbird Project is crushed by a mundane premise. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 57% The White Crow (2018) A beautiful aria, buoyed by a graceful score and the elegance of the ballet. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Benjamin (2018) A roaring success for Amstell; his keen eye for cringe is splattered over every frame and line of dialogue. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 90% A Private War (2018) Colvin is a fascinating woman who deserves her story told, but A Private War doesn't leave the comfort zone of director Matthew Heineman. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) It's just a shame that the maelstrom of eccentric minds behind the scenes didn't lead to a wilder final product. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2019
4/5 73% Assassination Nation (2018) It's sharp, energetic and completely necessary. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2019
4/5 98% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) It's a fairly standard biopic heightened by an unflinching lead performance. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 72% Destroyer (2018) Ultimately, these are minor quibbles with a mesmerising piece of cinema by director Karyn Kusama. Destroyer isn't an easy watch but it is a thrilling one, bolstered by a juddering score and Kusama's keen eye for the macabre. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 66% Vice (2018) The performances are enviable, the subject matter delicious, but Vice ignores one deadly sin: wrath. McKay understandably pulls back to avoid simply making light of serious crimes, but you'll wish Vice threw a few more haymakers. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 59% The Front Runner (2018) The Front Runner claims to give us the origins of the now long-standing antagonism between press and politics, but like Gary Hart, the film just feels behind the times. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 26% Mortal Engines (2018) Unfortunately, while the city-vs-city square-offs are breathtaking, human fight sequences are choppy and forgettable. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Ralph Breaks the Internet is firing on all cylinders and repeat viewings will be a must to catch every gag, while John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman are just as heckin' delightful as they were first time around. - One Room With A View EDIT
