3/5 52% Mrs. Lowry & Son (2019) Mrs Lowry & Son features a script by Martyn Hesford that feels more like a radio or stage play; without any fresh insight to invigorate the clichés of downtrodden artistic lives, the characters feel both familiar and stale. - The List EDIT

4/5 89% We Have Always Lived in the Castle (2019) Careful writing and production captures the deceptive tone of Jackson's opaque prose, and delivering the complex sentiments of one of her most personal books intact deserves the highest of commendations. - The List EDIT

4/5 91% Gloria Bell (2019) In Gloria Bell, Moore gives one of her most sympathetic performances, ringing true as a mature, gutsy woman who won't let her age, or the failings of men, define her. - The List EDIT

2/5 52% Four Brothers (2005) Singleton. bereft of serious ideas if not visceral talent. now appears to have nothing more to offer than plenty of bang for your buck. - The List EDIT

2/5 41% A Lot Like Love (2005) Although A Lot Like Love is advertised like a generic teen comedy, its failure to provide [Ashton Kutcher] with his fourth consecutive U.S. number one reflects the film's avoidance of pratfall-style gags in favor of slushy romantic sentiment. - The List EDIT

3/5 81% Friday Night Lights (2004) With Billy Bob Thornton's garrulous Coach Gary Gaines masterminding every play, you'll get caught up in the action even if you can't tell your 'first-and-down' from your 'time-out.' - The List EDIT

3/5 39% Meet the Fockers (2004) Dodging any aspirations to satire or drama, Meet the Fockers is an intricately wrought, barely credible sitcom, but it's also as gratingly one note as a whoopee cushion. - The List EDIT

2/5 41% Ladder 49 (2004) Gail Gilchriest's witless script leaves Phoenix with little to do but flex his muscles, while Travolta rarely steps outside the realms of cliché in his role as a supposed mentor figure. - The List EDIT

3/5 51% Vanity Fair (2004) Hardly high-drama, but it's gently satirical and arguably represents the spirit of Thackeray's mischievous attitude to high society better than Kubrick's overwrought Barry Lyndon. - The List EDIT

4/5 68% Closer (2004) For all its stunt casting and knee-jerk sexual frankness, Closer gives an underlying resonance to an emotional world that is normally the preserve of glossy soap operas. - The List EDIT

2/5 86% The Vanishing (2019) The profile of both subject and stars promises a far more interesting experience than the drab final product, which takes a convoluted route towards a dull denouement that the audience already knows. - The List EDIT

4/5 91% Beats (2019) Ortega and Macdonald's performances are so vivid that it's a shame that the black and white photography may well relegate this drama to cult status; there's nothing about the setting that merits such a deliberately arty presentation. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2019
2/5 27% The Aftermath (2019) The cliches featured in director James Kent's adaptation of Rhidian Brook's novel are more dog-eared than a ration book. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2019
2/5 22% Miss Bala (2019) A tough, female-led thriller from the director of Twilight sounds great on paper; unfortunately, the lack of nous in Miss Bala's politics runs the film smack into a big brick wall. - The List EDIT
