Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
95% Peaky Blinders: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "So Tommy has been well and truly sucked back in. It's nice to be going along for the thrill-ride again. " ‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Dec 27, 2017
4/5 84% Dark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Dark doesn't have the nostalgia hook of Stranger Things, and so may not have the same broad appeal, but it's every bit as gripping and arguably spookier. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Dec 11, 2017
5/5 93% Motherland: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The best comedy takes reality and stretches it just enough to be funny but still believable. Every mother (and for that matter, father) will find plenty to relate to in Motherland. They'll find even more to laugh their heads off at. Riotous. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Nov 20, 2017
95% Peaky Blinders: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "Peaky Blinders... kicked off its fourth season last night in terrifically gripping, hugely confident style. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Nov 20, 2017
99% Alias Grace: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Superb. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Nov 6, 2017
No Score Yet Bron/Broen (The Bridge): Season 3 (TV, 2015) "Is The Bridge the same without Martin/Kim? Of course it isn't. It's different. But the good news is it's still brilliant, just differently brilliant. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 24, 2017
64% The X-Files: Season 10 (TV, 2016) "The X-Files feel old-fashioned and out of touch. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
63% True Detective : Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Anyone who tells you the original was an instant hit from the word go is lying. It took at least two, maybe three episodes before viewers became fully attuned to its offbeat rhythms. Season two looks like it could be heading along a similar path. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
80% Versailles: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The performances range from hammy to insipidly limp, and a lot of the dialogue is risible. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
No Score Yet Surviving Sandy Hook "The feeling you took away at the end was one of common sense crushed by idiocy. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
97% Better Call Saul: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "After one mouth-watering instalment, promises to be as much fun as the first one. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 2 Episode 10 "It's a measure of the quality of the writing and acting that we grew to care so much about these characters over the past 10 weeks. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
71% The Fall: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "Between the spurts of sparse dialogue, dragged-out shots of dimly-lit rooms and corridors (a regrettable legacy of Scandi noir), and long periods of staring into space, there was enough padding here to insulate an attic. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
No Score Yet Ripper Street: Season 3 (TV, 2014) "A much bigger, bolder and more ambitious Ripper Street. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
100% The Fall: Season 2 (TV, 2014) "A chilling return. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
55% The Casual Vacancy: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "A good cast wasted on complete tosh. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
73% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) "Murray, who genuinely seems to fancy himself as a bit of a crooner, bludgeoning his way through a number of Christmas standards in a cracked, scratchy voice suggests he's taking his ego for a sleigh ride. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
86% Gosford Park (2001) "This a marvellously entertaining confection, served up with a wonderfully light touch " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
17% Queen of the Damned (2002) "The result is a film that's as camp as Butlins but nowhere near as much fun and full of awful performances and silly dialogue " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
41% K-PAX (2001) "Who else but [Jeff] Bridges could invest a mouldering cliché like the world weary shrink who can solve everyone's problems but not his own with such depth and feeling? What a truly wonderful actor he is. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
24% Don't Say a Word (2001) "Don't Say a Word is mediocre, shrink-wrapped Hollywood pap. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
67% Ali (2001) "A flawed film, then, and a comparative disappointment. But because of Smith, the scrupulous recreation of the period and the general quality of the performances, I'll score Ali a narrow victory on points. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
80% The Royal Tenenbaums (2002) "Suffused with warmth and colour, and making liberal and inventive use of flashbacks, captions, voiceover and even chapter headings to break up the story, The Royal Tenenbaums won't be to everybody's taste, but it is a blast of original, irreverent air. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 16, 2017
4/5 82% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 (TV, 2017-2018) "When Discovery is acting, rather than standing around explaining, it's terrific. May it live long and prosper. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 3, 2017
5/5 92% The Deuce: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "[The Deuce] sucks you irresistibly into a fully-realised world. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Oct 3, 2017
85% Mr. Mercedes: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The bedrock is King's book. TV hasn't always done justice to fiction's greatest living storyteller. Mr Mercedes looks like it will. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Sep 22, 2017
5/5 93% Fargo: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "This was a superb season and, earlier reservations swept aside, probably the Fargo I'd be most inclined to watch again. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Aug 7, 2017
100% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 2 "This is more like Twin Peaks at that point, when the general opinion was the series had become madder than a bag of laboratory rats, than at the start. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Jun 6, 2017
100% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 1 "You wouldn't judge a painting by focusing on a corner and ignoring the rest of the canvas, so let's see what the next two or three episodes hold. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Jun 6, 2017
95% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "This magnificent new adaptation (there was a misguided 1990 film version) couldn't have arrived at a more opportune time. It succeeds spectacularly on every level. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted May 30, 2017
5/5 96% The Keepers: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It is not the kind of series you'd binge on; you need a break, a breather, to absorb the astonishing horror of it. However, it's essential that you watch it and absorb it all. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted May 22, 2017
92% American Gods: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "American Gods requires an investment of patience. The reward is something pulsatingly original. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted May 9, 2017
5/5 90% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 (TV, 2014) "An undervalued series that, like The Wire, may only be fully appreciated after it's ended. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
96% Olive Kitteridge: Season One (TV, 2014) "The slack pace and offbeat structure might try some people's patience, but the characters are intriguing and McDormand is superb. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 1 Episode 10 "After nine dazzling weeks, Noah Hawley's ingenious adaptation/expansion of the Coen brothers' much-loved movie didn't disappoint. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
2/5 92% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Somebody has worked really hard here at laying on the murk and gloom (it's so dark at times it makes Christopher Nolan's Batman movies look like the campy 60s series). " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
5/5 No Score Yet Black Mirror: Season 3 Episode 4 "It's astonishingly well-realised, beautifully acted by Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis, and ultimately extremely moving. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
4/5 No Score Yet Black Mirror: Season 3 Episode 3 "It's a fantastically tense, blackly funny tale with a shock, rug-pulling ending that packs a terrific wallop. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Black Mirror: Season 3 Episode 2 "It's basically Black Mirror's take on a haunted house story. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Black Mirror: Season 3 Episode 1 "Like all the best Black Mirrors, this is just a few short steps from current reality. It's not one of the best, though. It sets up the premise crisply, then spends far too much time labouring the point. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
76% The OA: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The OA is a bizarre puzzle that may or may not be worth sticking with. I'm in for now, but only just. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
96% American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson (TV, 2015) "It's utterly gripping. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
100% Peaky Blinders: Season 2 (TV, 2014) "You can't go wrong with a good flat cap. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
2/5 42% Houdini: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "It looks fabulously lavish and we get to see all his major illusions, as well as the secrets of how he pulled them off. But, by God, it does go on. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
88% Poldark: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Poldark manages to ring the changes on an old favourite and yet, for all its widescreen flash and dash, stay true to the traditions of BBC period dramas the past. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
3/5 88% Love: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Love, all 10 episodes of which are available on Netflix, could well be the best thing Judd Apatow has been associated with since the short-lived, much-loved Freaks and Geeks all the way back in 1999. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
94% Silicon Valley: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "It could turn out to be the best thing Judge has ever done. It's certainly the best comedy to come out of HBO in a long time. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
29% The Royals: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The Royals is just atrocious, plain and simple. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
Posted Apr 25, 2017
32% Girlboss: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "There's an element of Girlboss trying to have its cake and eat it. " ‐ The Herald (Ireland)
