MovieViews


The MovieMuse Reviews (MovieViews) database is a searchable collection of films that the team have watched. It provides a link to an in-depth review or a short opinion on the film and a rating, as well as a link to the film’s poster or DVD cover. Over time this will build into a comprehensive guide about what to watch and what to avoid.

You can search and sort the list by individual film names, genre, reviewer, score and other variables to inform you on whether a film is worth your time, or to inspire you for your next movie night.

We will also use the database to create periodic lists of the recommended films in all sorts of categories. These lists will be shared on the website and some will even come with a video.

Raiders of the Lost Ark 1981 Action, Adventure Click to see our Box Set review. 4
Primer 2004 Drama, SciFi, Thriller A little too clever for its own good and a lack of real tension or threat, but there is enough to keep your head scratching for some time after the film has completed. 3.5
Presumed Innocent 1990 Mystery, Thriller Some great acting and a really well delivered twist create another hit for Harrison Ford 4
Party Party 1983 Comedy Click to see our Film Club review. 2
Pete's Dragon 2016 Adventure, Family, Fantasy Perfectly acceptable, but absolutely average. 2.5
Paper Man 2009 Comedy, Drama A lovely tale of loneliness with fantastic performances from all 4 of its stars. 4
Over the Top 1987 Action, Family, Sport The 80s in a nutshell. The Rocky formula turned into family fun with a great Moroder-esque soundtrack. 3.5
Our Kind of Traitor 2016 Crime, Thriller The only shock in the film was that there were no shocks. An acceptable film, but ads nothing to the genre. 3
100 Streets 2016 Drama Interesting but overly sentimental tale of London lives. 3
Once 2007 Drama, Music, Romance Gloriously beautiful tale told with completely believable characters. 4
November Man 2014 Action, Crime, Thriller Action, suspense and a great performance from Pierce Brosnan, but nothing new. 3.5
Noobz 2012 Comedy The worst kind of bandwagon jumping tripe led by big name actor lookalikes. 1
Nocturnal Animals 2016 Drama, Thriller Stylish and clever paralleling of relationship drama and murder thriller stories. 4
No Way Out 1987 Action, Crime If it wasn't for the twist the film would be no more than a generic thriller. 3
No Escape 2015 Action, Thriller Owen Wilson is convncing as the out of his depth father trying to protect his family in a very good 'get from A to B via hell' thriller. 4
No Country for Old Men 2007 Crime, Drama, Thriller Fizzles out towards the end, but has enough tension to keep you interested throughout. The showering of awards is a little surprising though. 3.5
Nina 2016 Biopic, Drama, Music Awful script, poor acting/singing and some awful prosthetics put front and centre. Serves only to damn the memory of a troubled genius. 2
Mortal Kombat 1995 Action, Adventure, Fantasy Fun and faithful, but let down by a shocking script and some terrible acting. 2.5
Myra Breckinridge 1970 Comedy Everything in the book that shocked is watered down (except the single 'Myra rides Rusty' scene). leaving a very tame film by today's standards. 1.5
Neon Demon 2016 Drama, Horror, Thriller For a film that contains lesbian necrophilia and someone coughing up an eyeball, the film is surprisingly subtle and restrained. A striking study of how beauty corrupts. 4
Morgan 2016 Horror, Mystery, SciFi Adds nothing to the AI genre, but is exciting and dark enough to holds its own. Kate Mara is excellent. 3.5
Moonwalkers 2015 Comedy Rupert Grint is likeable as a grown up Ron Weasley and the story is an interesting idea. But the film is nowhere near as funny or clever as it thinks it is. 2
Money Monster 2016 Crime, Drama, Thriller A opcorn thriller that is an enjoyable tale and a damning indictment of greed. 3.5
Moana 2016 Adventure, Animation, Comedy The usual high quality Disney animated far only let down by a song that removes all of the ethnicity that the film champions. I didn't like the chicken either. 3
Mississippi Grind 2015 Drama The quality of the characters shines from start to finish in a road movie of friendship, highs, lows and hope. 4.5
Minority Report 2002 Action, SciFi, Thriller A great glimpse into a possible future and its moral dilemmas. 4
Miller's Crossing 1990 Crime, Drama, Thriller A talky mob film is a pleasant surprise and the script will keep you entertained when the direction falters. 3.5
Midnight Special 2016 Adventure, Drama, Mystery Despite some awful child acting and a horribly fluffy ending, I like the film more than I wanted to. Has a great score too. 3
Midnight Cowboy 1969 Drama Superb performances, but the haphazard direction stops it being a true classic. 4
Mean Girls 2004 Comedy Trite, stereotypical and often insulting to the viewers intelligence. God help us if the rumoured sequel sees the light of day. 2
Mascots 2016 Comedy Christopher Guest’s least subtle but most endearing ‘mockumentary’ yet. O’Dowd’s fake Irish accent is a bit off putting though, especially as he is actually Irish. 3.5
Marvellous 2014 Biopic, Drama A heartwarming tale that uses real people and archive footage to emphasise that however remarkable the story may seem, it is in fact true. 4
Marauders 2016 Action, Crime, Thriller Run of the mill bank job with a terribly out of place Bruce Willis. 2.5
Maggie 2015 Drama, Horror A very different take on the zombie genre. Focuses on how the infected live rather than what happens when they die. Arnie is superb and should take on more of these understated roles. 4
Magnificent 7 2016 Action, Adventure, Western Despite being in the vast wilderness of the wild west the film seems to struggle with scale, coming off as a much smaller film than the original. 2.5
Made 2001 Comedy, Crime, Drama Favreau and Vaughan doing what they do. Could be Swingers: 10 Years Later. 3.5
Mad Max: Fury Road 2015 Action, Adventure, SciFi Click to see our detailed review. 4
Long Kiss Goodnight 1996 Action, Comedy The film has more cheese than necessary and Gena Davis is beyond poor, but there is enough action and excitement to make it worthwhile. 2.5
Look Who's Back 2015 Comedy, Drama, Foreign Language This faux-documentary about Hitler returning to modern day Germany is almost too real and is all the more terrifying for it. 4
London Town 2016 Drama, Music A childish film trying to exist in an adult world and fails miserably. 1.5
London Has Fallen 2016 Action, Crime The tagline (Prepare For Bloody Hell) is the best thing about the film. After the surprising delight of Olympus, London is a let down in all possible ways. 1.5
Level Up 2016 Thriller Other films have done the story much better. Nothing to do with video games despite marketing to the contrary. 2
Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World 2016 Documentary Interesting and contained a few things that I hadn't heard before, but I don't feel I learned anything. 3
Let's Be Evil 2016 Horror, SciFi, Thriller High production values, but a story that ultimately goes nowhere. There is definite tension but nothing ever comes of it. 2
A Christmas Carol 1984 Drama, Family, Fantasy One of the definitive tellings of a well known tale. Tiny Tim is annoying though! 3.5
A Field in England 2013 Drama, Horror, Period Some arty scenes made me want to dislike the film but somehow I couldn't. The black and white cinematography was unnecessary, but the dialogue and drama were superb. 4
10 Cloverfield Lane 2016 Drama, Mystery, Thriller The shoe-horning of Cloverfield into what is a brilliant film in its own right is pretty shameless. But despite that it is still a must see. 4
45 Years 2015 Drama A tale of keeping a secret for a very long time. there is far less to the film than the premise suggests. Saved by fine performances by the leads. 3.5
The Dinner Game (Le Diner de Cons) 1998 Comedy, Foreign Language An enjoyable but pretty standard farce that would have benefitted from showing the titular dinner itself rather than just the build up. 3
Kubo and the Two Strings 2016 Adventure, Animation, Family, Fantasy A great story made all the better by a talking monkey and beetle, though I don't buy the point of claymation when you are going to meld it with CGI. 4
