T-Meter Title | Year
1/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) A new franchise low, featuring flailing actors, dull, incomprehensible action and murderous Autobots that act like whiny, petulant dicks. - SFX Magazine EDIT

4/5 55% Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) Brilliantly sweet and snarky. - SFX Magazine EDIT

2.5/5 36% Dark Shadows (2012) A flaccid film that might as well be a straight-to-video Addams Family sequel. - SFX Magazine EDIT

3.5/5 67% The Woman in Black (2012) Radcliffe couldn't have known that the editing process would place his not-disgraceful performance within a noisy, clattering movie about a man who is either suicidally brave or clinically deaf. - SFX Magazine EDIT

3.5/5 11% Season of the Witch (2011) While certainly no Witchfinder General, it doesn't deserve to be burned at the stake. - SFX Magazine EDIT

4.5/5 73% Monsters (2010) As a piece of imaginative virtual tourism, made on an extremely low budget, Monsters is a fantastic achievement. - SFX Magazine EDIT

1/5 64% Outcast (2010) There's a real sense of something vaguely interesting being urinated up a wall. - SFX Magazine EDIT

1/5 21% Case 39 (2010) Case 39 is too bland, with scares that are so polite they almost take their shoes off to avoid dirtying the hallway carpet of your mind. - SFX Magazine EDIT

4/5 66% Carriers (2009) A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost. - SFX Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2009
3/5 57% The Descent 2 (2009) It's hard to argue that this is anything but a scary yet slightly superfluous sequel. - SFX Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2009
5/5 83% Paranormal Activity (2009) If you've spent any amount of time bemoaning the current state of horror films, slagging off Platinum Dunes remakes and mocking the CGI-and-tits tosh that passes for cineplex terror these days, you owe it to yourself to go and see this film. - SFX Magazine EDIT

3.5/5 46% Shorts: The Adventures of the Wishing Rock (2009) Exactly the sort of kid-in-a-candy-store experience you'd expect. - SFX Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2009
2/5 56% Orphan (2009) A difficult child that horror-loving parents will find hard to adopt as one of their own. - SFX Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2009
2/5 53% City of Ember (2008) Ultimately, this journey to rekindle the fire of humanity fails to burn bright enough, leaving only the unpleasant taste of ashes. - SFX Magazine EDIT

2/5 23% Push (2009) Going to see this film doesn't make much sense. It's obviously been cynically conceived as a franchise starter, but abruptly flicking to the end credits seemingly mid-movie is not a good way to start one. - SFX Magazine EDIT
