T-Meter Title | Year
43% The Addams Family (2019) The Addams Family is definitely one for the less-discerning little monsters in the family, because it's too "neat, sweet, petite", when a little bit of bite might have made more of an impression. - Flickering Myth EDIT

92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) So much charisma, charm, and a huge heart beneath its hood, that even those with a tin-ear for motor-racing will enjoy its tale of friendship and family in the fast lane. - Flickering Myth EDIT

97% Marriage Story (2019) Marriage Story is an extraordinary tale of untethering, one that will be revisited and referenced for years to come as a near-faultless example of the craft of filmmaking. - Flickering Myth EDIT

73% Blackbird (2019) Blackbird remains an undeniable sledgehammer to the emotions, one that walks a very fine line between heartache and Hallmark, but Susan Sarandon is gently astonishing, and by the time the sun sets on the film you'll be watching it though a veil of tears. - Flickering Myth EDIT

86% The Report (2019) A thorough and meticulously rewarding journey, carried towards an anger-inducing resolution by terrific performances from Annette Benning and Adam Driver, The Report is as riveting and thought-provoking as film-making gets. - Flickering Myth EDIT

81% Just Mercy (2019) Powerfully understated performances, built on the foundations of some incredible real-life events, can't prevent Just Mercy from being a nuts-and-bolts legal procedural drama that feels as timely as it does dated. - Flickering Myth EDIT

88% Waves (2019) Flooded with creativity, Waves is a wonderfully unique soul-stirring experience. A tough-and-tender study in grief and growth that's buoyed by an ensemble of incredible actors. - Flickering Myth EDIT

48% The Informer (2020) It feels harsh to be hung up on the resolution of a story that's entertaining enough throughout, but proceedings grind to such a choppy, rushed, unsatisfactory halt that it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth - Flickering Myth EDIT

97% Pain and Glory (Dolor y gloria) (2019) Pain and Glory is a tapestry, stitching together timelines and characters, all towards a whole that you weren't quite expecting, but once it's thrown over you, the effect is one of Almodovar's warmest and most enjoyable films yet. - Flickering Myth EDIT

100% Only You (2018) A stripped-back contemporary fable, Only You is a grown-up film about grown-up people, one that'll threaten to break your heart as often as it makes it skip-a-beat. - Flickering Myth EDIT

88% Diego Maradona (2019) It doesn't have that same propulsive cinematic narrative that Senna or Amy had, but is no-less-fascinating because of it. - Flickering Myth EDIT

No Score Yet After We Leave (2019) Although it does get a little bumpy along the way, Aleem Hossain's feature film debut remains a promising genre entry. - Flickering Myth EDIT

97% Booksmart (2019) Booksmart joins the likes of The Kings of Summer and Eighth Grade, as a contemporary snapshot of youth with a heart as big as its funny bone. Enrol now. - Flickering Myth EDIT

76% The Wandering Earth (2019) There's nothing new on offer in The Wandering Earth, but it does prove that China is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to making the kind of silly big-budget blockbusters that have been peppered throughout Hollywood for the last few decades. - Flickering Myth EDIT

68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Relentlessly funny, heartwarming, and consistently inventive, Detective Pikachu could well be the family film of the year. One thing's for certain: you'll feel it in your jellies. - Flickering Myth EDIT

29% The Curse of La Llorona (2019) There's enough here to keep the Friday night crowds happy, but judged against the other installments in The Conjuring Universe, The Curse of La Llorona is a familiar exercise in haunted house tropes. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 91% The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) The Kindergarten Teacher is an eerie film-going experience, one which might leave you as cold and disconnected as its lead character, but is also as complex and fascinating as her. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2/5 27% The Aftermath (2019) There's an interesting story to be found somewhere in the darker recesses of The Aftermath, but it tends to be more concerned with the lightweight dalliances of its rather dull central characters to leave any aftermath of its own with the audience. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 70% Cold Pursuit (2019) If you're willing to embrace this sense of gratuitous fun, then Cold Pursuit is a real treat. - Flickering Myth EDIT
