T-Meter Title | Year
7.5/10 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) The film doesn't break any new ground, but some thrilling driving sequences combined with likable lead performances makes it an entertaining watch, even with a slightly bloated runtime. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

90% It Must Be Heaven (2019) The film balances wit and amusement with a melancholic, maybe even unfulfilled, sense of belonging. The end result maybe isn't heaven, but it certainly soars high above the janky chairs scattered around the Tuileries Garden. - Film Inquiry EDIT

7/10 53% Ladyworld (2019) An accomplished exercise in the setting of mood, Ladyworld's score, acting and script are interesting and layered. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

10/10 96% The Irishman (2019) The Irishman represents a profound success for all involved and engages with deep and spiritual ideas, while also being vividly entertaining. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

9/10 85% Sorry We Missed You (2019) A deeply moving story, superbly told and acted. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

9/10 88% American Woman (2019) American Woman stands out because of an excellent central performance from Sienna Miller, and all the other elements are calibrated perfectly to showcase her in the role. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

14% Night Hunter (Nomis) (2019) A stellar cast, skilled musical score composers, and a solid set of inspirations combine to little beyond an uninspiring drama at best, or a leery piece of pulp deserving of eyerolls at worst. - Film Inquiry EDIT

6/10 89% Blinded by the Light (2019) Instead of using music to help digest its potentially interesting mix of humour and contemporaneously resonant commentary, Blinded By The Light goes the more saccharine sing-along route that feels emptier and trite. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7/10 63% Yesterday (2019) There are both poorly-scripted elements and fun moments in this collaboration between Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis. However, the strength of the musical presentation and the performances are enjoyable enough to overcome most of the shortcomings. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

5/10 67% She's Missing (2019) An excellent central performance and some fantastic situational symbolism doesn't stop She's Missing from being swallowed up by its own sense of intrigue. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

75% Armstrong (2019) Armstrong's shortcomings are exacerbated by unflattering comparisons. Rather than looking skyward, Armstrong awkwardly looks at its feet, the film eclipsed by other efforts both fictional and factual. - Film Inquiry EDIT

47% Robert the Bruce (2019) Macfadyen's central performance is measured and gives some weight to the sections trying to characterise Robert the Bruce. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% Bait (2019) The film will need time for viewers to finds its groove, but the contrasting period style and modern tale blend to excellent effect. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% Scheme Birds (2019) Although the documentary lays out in detail the rudderless existence of many of the young people, it also finds a visual lyricism and freedom metaphor in Gemma's grandfather's pigeons. - Film Inquiry EDIT

90% The Souvenir (2019) A wonderfully made film, with superb acting and shot choices from Hogg, the backdrop to the story proves distractingly stand-offish from the characters' day-to-day situations. - Film Inquiry EDIT

67% She's Missing (2019) A desire for ambiguity and choppy editing render the film frustrating to watch, tumbling into pointless mystery. - Film Inquiry EDIT

59% Astronaut (2019) Astronaut would easily fall into saccharine cliche and asininity, but Dreyfuss has sufficient gravitas to pull off the role of Angus. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet Love Type D (2019) The film undoubtedly stays at the frothier end of the concepts and themes, when it could take deeper turns, but Collington's skill in handling the material means the film is always engaging and light on its feet. - Film Inquiry EDIT

63% Yesterday (2019) In retrospect, the film will feel flimsy but, in the moment, is a witty toe-tapper. - Film Inquiry EDIT

94% Beats (2019) Beats is a lively and thoughtful film, and not one that is characterised by a succession of repetitive beats. - Film Inquiry EDIT
