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.

The Purge: Anarchy 2014 Horror, Thriller A 'Warriors' style cross town journey through hell that may not reach the heights of its predecessors, but has enough of its own thrills. 3
The Purge: Election Year 2016 Horror, Thriller Whilst it adds nothing new to the series, Election Year is a more than satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy. 3
The Reluctant Fundamentalist 2012 Thriller A classy way to show how it is possible to fall in and out of love with America and how not being with us doesn't not necessarily mean being against us. 3.5
The Revenant 2015 Adventure, Biopic, Drama Click to see our detailed review. 4
The Shallows 2016 Adventure, Drama, Thriller Beautifully shot and avoids falling for most of the obvious temptation to go down the horror route to deliver a genuinely exciting shark survival thriller. 4
The Train to Busan 2016 Action, Foreign Language, Horror More heart than most Zombie films and doesn’t over-rely on CGI. It can be long before it gets a Hollywood remake. 4
The Trust 2016 Crime, Thriller Excellent heist movie with a twist. Great performances from Cage and Wood who play the opposite of what you would expect. 4
The Survivalist 2015 Drama, Thriller A gripping, raw drama that is masterfully told without explaining how it all came about. 4
The Warriors 1979 Action, Thriller Great cult 70s gang thriller whose style is only let down by terrible fight choreography and a dreadfully schlock performance from Roger Hill as Cyrus. 4
The Witch 2016 Horror, Mystery Tense and just a little bit sick. Keeps you on your toes despite its heavy dialogue. 4
Them! 1954 Horror, SciFi Click to see our Film Club review. 3.5
They Live 1988 Action, Horror, SciFi Smart and funny political-Sci Fi-satire with a brilliant turn by Roddy Piper and THAT fight scene. 4
Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning 2012 Action, Animation, SciFi Superb concept that fails to translate into a good movie. Hopes are high for the rumoured live action remake though. 2.5
Time After Time 1979 Adventure, Comedy, Drama, SciFi A superb concept (HG Wells travels through time to catch Jack the Ripper), but falls between comedy and drama when it would have been netter to pick a side. 3
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy 2011 Mystery, Thriller Very stylish and an unbelievable cast, but just a smidge too thoughful and slow. 3.5
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider 2001 Action, Adventure, Fantasy A ludicrous script makes Lara into an 80s movie action hero, rather than making an action movie out of Lara. Female Indiana Jones this certainly isn't. 1.5
Traders 2015 Thriller An interesting and daring low budget thriller. With a better director, cast and budget this could be a Fight Club for the next generation. 3.5
Traitor 2008 Crime, Thriller Some nice twists and an engaging cast make the film interesting and exciting (even if the ending is a tad long). 4
Trespass Against Us 2016 Crime, Drama Oddly heartening tale of goodness in bad people. Fassbender is on great form. 4
Triple 9 2016 Action, Crime, Drama Starts as a 4, ends as a 3 and drops to a 2 in the middle. A good film that avoids greatness by not being able to maintain its momentum. 3
Trumbo 2015 Biopic, Drama An excellent story that needed to be told. Has scary parallels to Donald Trump's distorted view of the world. 4
Victoria 2016 Crime, Drama, Foreign Language A 130 minute single take movie that tells a beliveable and beautiful story in a unique way. Technically astounding and artistically exciting. 4.5
War Dogs 2016 Biopic, Comedy, Crime, Thriller A one sided tale of a partnership that is interesting and entertaining in equal measures, but simplifies the subject matter a little too much. 3.5
Way of the Gun 2000 Action, Crime Click to see our Film Club review. 3
Wiener Dog 2016 Comedy, Drama Part genius, part self indulgent pretension. The over-long gratuity and poor final act swings the scale from awesome to slightly above average. 3
Westworld 1973 Adventure, SciFi, Thriller Like the park it portrays, Westworld mixes jovial scenes with sinister thrills. Some of it has aged badly but it is a classy sci-fi thriller that deserves its legacy. 3.5
When Marnie was There 2016 Animation, Drama, Fantasy Thoughtful tale that gently deals with growing pains in a way only Japan seems able. 3.5
Wings of Desire 1987 Fantasy, Mystery A serene film that show beauty in decay rather than glitter. The car showroom scene is an absolute joy. 4
X+Y: A Brilliant Mind 2014 Drama Covering much more than the autism film it is billed as, x+y is a wonderful and touching tale. 4
X-Men Apocalypse 2016 Action, Adventure, SciFi Shoddy effects and a pretty pathetic story, but a great start and some nice set pieces stop it being a complete failure. 3
You're Next 2011 Horror, Thriller Clever, fun and very well shot mid-budget horror. All the clichés are there, but all executed perfectly (pun intended). 4
Me, You and Everyone we Know 2005 Comedy, Drama A charming film that has a feelgood vibe despite everyone's pains being front and centre. 4
Zoom 2015 Animation, Drama The concept is far better than the movie but it is still an enjoyable multi-dimensional adult soap opera. 3.5
Zootopia (Zootropolis) 2016 Adventure, Animation, Comedy Clever, very funny and delivering a timely message. Disney's best animated movie for years. 4
Elstree 1976 2016 Documentary A jolly nice chat with some jolly nice people who just happen to have been in small film called Star Wars. 3.5
300 2006 Action, Fantasy Typical Zach Snyder. Beautiful to look at and some nice action, but half an hour too long and far too much use of slow motion. 3
The Girl With All The Gifts 2016 Horror, Thriller An interesting take on the zombie/viral outbreak movie that unfortunately gets a little too soppy in places. 3.5
