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.

Spotlight 2015 Biopic, Crime, Drama Interesting and hard hitting, but certainly not entertaining. If a film is going to bring so much reality to the pursuit of justice then they may as well have made a documentary. 3.5
Son of Saul 2016 Drama, Foreign Language, War Harrowing and fantastically told, but not as emotional as you may expect. 4
Snowden 2016 Biopic, Drama, Thriller Overdoes the 'Ed is righteous' and 'Government is evil' but, but tells and interesting (albeit one-sided) account. 3
Sleeper 1973 Comedy, SciFi At some points a masterpiece and others a bore. Half Keystone Cops and half 1984, it doesn't do enough with either to fully excel. 3
Slash 2016 Comedy, Drama Despite its desperation to be edgy and subversive it misses the mark and ends up like an episode of Dawson's Creek at an erotic fan-fiction and cosplay convention. 2
Sing Street 2016 Comedy, Drama, Music Trademark John Carney, but can't hit the heights of Once. Not helped by being unable to connect with the lead character. 3
Silent Running 1972 Adventure, SciFi An engaging tale despite terrible acting, shoddy effects and a bizarre soundtrack. 3
Sightseers 2012 Adventure, Comedy, Crime A dark, funny and surprising film with some amazing scenery and top notch performances. 4
Sicario 2015 Action, Crime, Drama A great first half descends into hysterical girl fights bad good-guys for doing bad things for good reasons. 3
Shenmue The Movie 2001 Adventure, Animation, Drama Made completely from in-game cutscenes, removing the gameplay has also removed everything good about the game. Leaving a shallow story and some awful dialogue. 2
Shooter 2007 Action, Crime, Thriller An exciting, though bog standard thriller. 3
Shade 2003 Crime, Thriller Twists and double crosses are far too obvious, though Stallone excels (and is probably too good for the film). 2.5
Sausage Party 2016 Animation, Comedy Does all it can to degrade the art-form and succeeds. Behind the gratuity is a simple Toy Story rip-off. 2
Sex Lives of the Potato Men 2004 Comedy The shortness of the film is its only saving grace. 2
Sabotage 2014 Action, Crime Poor story and average acting make for a bog standard, middle of the road film hiding behind buckets of blood. 2.5
Rubber 2010 Comedy, Fantasy, Horror A mad genius of a movie. This oddball film would have worked with a human killer, but the fact it is a tyre just adds to the joyous insanity! 4
Room 2015 Drama A simply stunning film that switches from claustrophobic to agoraphobic with effortless ease. 4.5
Ronin 1998 Action, Crime A really good good story with plenty of talking points, but stretched way too thin by over long car chases and poor effects. 3
Romancing the Stone 1984 Action, Adventure, Comedy Douglas is no Harrison Ford, but in the second division of action heroes he does a very good job. 3
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 2016 Adventure, SciFi, War Click to see our detailed review. 3
Red Road 2006 Drama, Thriller Masterfully told drama that tells a very simple plot in a very British and very good way. 4.5
Reach Me 2014 Drama Stallone is good but he seems to be in a gritty drama whilst the rest of the cast are in a TV comedy. 2
Re-Animator 1985 Horror Click to see our Film Club review. 3.5
Ratchet & Clank 2016 Adventure, Animation, Family, SciFi The visuals are no better than the ingame cutscenes and script has little to offer either. You are better off just playing the first Ratchet game (or the PS4 remake). 2.5
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
