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.

Inferno 2016 Adventure, Drama, Thriller Inferno displays everything that is wrong with big budget thrillers. Ageing 'named' lead actors who can't keep up with the action, overused and unnecessary CGI and a myriad of twists that are all so signposted they just prolong the agony. 1.5
Infiltrator 2016 Biopic, Crime, Drama Despite playing his part well, Cranston is horribly miscast and the film plods along to a pretty unsatisfactory conclusion. 2.5
Inside Llewyn Davis 2013 Drama, Music Oscar Isaac is excellent as the temperamental folk singer questioning his art. 4
Inside Man 2006 Crime, Drama, Mystery An interesting twist, but just a little too generic. 3.5
Into the Wild 2007 Adventure, Biopic, Drama The desire for a free life is infectious, but the film fails spectacularly in showing the risk and danger of living in the wild. Though it is still great to see a film championing the odd people on the outside of 'normal' life. 3
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back 2016 Action, Adventure, Crime Some brilliantly brutal fight scenes elevate a very average script. 2.5
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit 2014 Action, Thriller Generic spy-action thriller set in the US and Russia but with an almost entirely British cast?? 2.5
Jackie Chan's Project A 1983 Action, Comedy Click to see our Film Club review. 3.6
Japan Sinks 2006 Adventure, Drama, SciFi Focuses a little too much on the people and not the action, making for a slightly dull affair. 2.5
Jason Bourne 2016 Action, Thriller Fun and entertaining, but the script is unusually poor (no doubt due to regular screenwriter Tony Gilroy not being involved) and the set pieces too often spoil the flow. 3
The Jewel of the Nile 1985 Action, Adventure, Comedy A moderately entertaining sequel to Romancing the Stone that just doesn't pack the punch of its predecessor. 2.5
Jimmy Vestvood 2016 Adventure, Comedy The 'all foreigners are terrorists' and 'America loves a good war (for commercial gain)' rhetoric feels bang on, but does get a little tiresome by the end. A nice slapstick comedy. 3
Joy 2015 Biopic, Drama Dreary TV movie dressed up as cinema. Poor acting throughout and an absolute mystery how it became oscar nominated. The film appears as fake as the QVC sellers peddling Joy's wares. 2
Joysticks 1983 Comedy Awful racial and social stereotyping and bereft of humour. Nowhere near its contemporaries (like Revenge of the Nerds) and not even worth watching to geek out on the old arcade games. 1.5
Judge Dredd 1995 Action, Crime, SciFi Looks dated even for a 90s movie, but the camp and cartoony fun is all the simple plot needed. 3
K-Shop 2016 Horror, Thriller An unexpected indictment of binge drinking Britain dressed up as a Sweeny Todd for the millenial generation. One of those films that you want everyone to see. 4
Keanu 2016 Action, Comedy Buddy film about two good guys with an nhealthy obsession with George Michael acting bad to rescue a kitten. Sounds awful but works surprisingly well. 4
Key Largo 1948 Crime, Drama, Noir Click to see our Film Club review. 3.6
Kicking Off 2015 Comedy Ends a very different film to the one that started. Think Edgar Wright on a budget. 3.5
KiDULTHOOD 2006 Crime, Drama A frighteningly authenic look at urban Britain with some great cebtral performances. 3.5
Kill List 2011 Crime, Horror, Thriller A 720 degree headfuck. Could be genius or could be madness. I have no idea which, but I liked it! 3.5
Kill Your Friends 2015 Comedy, Crime, Thriller Self indulgent and self important. A bit like the A&R men it portrays. 2.5
Kindergarten Cop 2 2016 Comedy Does everything the first film does, just not as well. 2
Kitchen Stories 2003 Comedy, Drama, Foreign Language Odd, slow, thoughtful, beautiful, brilliant. 4
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
