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.

People You May Know 2017 Drama, Romance Another attempt at an internet age parable that succeeds as much as it fails as a loner becomes a social media guinea pig with unexpected repercussions. 2.5
New Jack City 1991 Action, Crime, Drama Run of the mill 90s gangster fare with casting that feels like the roles were picket out of a hat. All of the right people are there, but almost to a man they are playing the wrong character. 2.5
Black Panther 2018 Action, Adventure, SciFi Dispenses with almost all of the Marvel tropes to deliver a tight and focussed origin story in a beautifully realised world. At last we have a superhero film dialled back down to 10. 4
2 Guns 2013 Action, Comedy, Crime Standard but entertaining buddy movie where the twists are obvious and the wisecracks lame, but that doesn't seem to matter. 3
Bad Day For The Cut 2017 Drama, Thriller Whilst the plot lingers a little too long, this tale of quiet farm life interrupted by secrets and murder percolates into a dark and violent thriller. 3.5
Two Down 2015 Comedy, Crime, Thriller 70s inspired crime drama interspersed with light hearted comedy adds up to a weak first feature from from film-makers tipped as 'stars of tomorrow' by Screen International. 2.5
Three Days of the Condor 1975 Thriller Slow 70s spy yarn that has aged much worse than its cult status suggests. Is a real slog to make it to the unsatisfactory conclusion. 2.5
Cardboard Gamgsters 2017 Crime, Drama A very low budget Irish drama that transcends its poor acting to deliver a solid look at estate life. 3.5
Acts of Vengeance 2017 Action, Drama Not sure if the script, the directing or Antonio Banderas was the worst thing about it, but wow, that was bad. 1
The Foreigner 2017 Action, Drama, Thriller It is great to see Jackie Chan in a non-comedy and non-kung fu film (though he does get a few kicks and punches in). It is odd however that the title was changed from The Chinaman when that is what he is called throughout. 3.5
In Time 2011 Action, SciFi, Thriller The concept is better than the film and there are a few incredulous set pieces, but overall In Time is a solid and entertaining waste of two hours. 3
X-Men: The Last Stand 2006 Action, Adventure It may be packed with action, but most of the subtlety and social commentary of the first two films is lost. It was also short-sighted to kill off so many major characters given how many more films were ultimately made in this franchise. 3
Iron Man 2 2010 Action, Thriller The first half is about as shallow as Tony Stark is in this film, and there's a distinct lack of action. The villain is unconvincing too, but things do improve for the film's climax and overall it is still reasonably entertaining. 3
License to Drive 1988 Comedy A fun teen comedy that has a few good moments, plenty of cheesy ones, and serves as a reminder of happier times for the two Coreys. 3
Firepower 1993 Action Inappropriately named given that most of the action is hand-to-hand combat, this is a run of the mill low budget action film that is notable only for the appearance of former WWF star The Ultimate Warrior as a villain. 2
Future Shock - The Story of 2000AD 2014 Documentary An interesting story about the legendary British comic and how it influenced the wider world. It goes on too long for a casual fan but if you love the comic and want to know more about the people behind it, you'll probably love it. 3
Meet Dave 2008 Comedy, SciFi Universally panned by critic but I can't see why. The story is run of the mill family-friendly stuff and some of the acting is poor, but Eddie Murphy delivers some great physical comedy and the Sci-Fi premise is great. A guilty pleasure! 3
The People Under the Stairs 1991 Comedy, Horror Claims to be a horror-comedy but largely fails at both, whilst also lacking in scares or gore. It's hard to understand how the man responsible for Elm Street and Screen could come up with this disappointing effort. 2
The Void 2016 Horror Visually impressive at times, with some creepy moments and gruesome ones too, this should be a great horror film but for some reason the pieces don't fit together and it ends up rather dull. 3
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2004 Adventure, Fantasy A change of director brings a darker tone and production design to match, with sharp, witty storytelling and some gorgeous effects. A fantastic time-travelling finale and the best acting so far make this the pinnacle of the series. 4
28 Days Later 2002 Horror, Thriller A movie of two halves, as an apocalyptic zombie film gives way to a study of how such a disaster might affect humanity. Both halves are well worth watching though they don't break a lot of new ground beyond the supercharged undead. 3.5
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 2005 Action, Fantasy The story is a bit boring at times despite all the action, and once again it is too long, but the Yule Ball scenes are simply brilliant and the finale shakes off any vestiges of the series' kid-friendly image in the most horrifying way possible. 3.5
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 2007 Fantasy, Thriller Daniel Radcliffe is superb as the traumatised Potter and it's great to see elements of the wizarding world beyond Hogwarts, but overall there's not a lot going on in this film until the last 20 minutes. 3
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 2009 Fantasy, Thriller The bleak cinematography is stunning and matches the film's grim mood perfectly. Not really any fun at all aside from a few moments with our heroes, but gives plenty of back-story and sets up the final films brilliantly. 3.5
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 2010 Fantasy, Thriller The desire to adapt the final book as closely as possible results in a film that tells half a story and lurches from captivating to interminably boring in almost equal measure, though the acting is generally great. 3
