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.

Juliet Naked 2018 Comedy, Drama, Music Chris O'Dowd is singer Tucker Crowe's number one fan, so when his long suffering ex-girfriend starts to date him things get a little weird. A pleasant and charming comedy, despite its predictability. 3
Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey 1993 Adventure, Comedy, Drama A remake of the 1963 film where two dogs and a cat trek miles through the dangerous wilderness of the Sierra Nevada mountains to return home when they think they have been abandoned. Brilliantly shot and will wonderful voice acting from Michael J fox. 3.5
Gnome Alone 2017 Adventure, Animation, Comedy An extremely average animated adventure that tries to cover the bigger issues of childhood anst, but generally fails. 2
Unhinged 2020 Action, Drama, Thriller A low budget stalker-thriller with the USP of being mostly car based, this is a hugely satisfying film with a great performance from Russell Crowe. It even throws in some surprisingly good special effects and action scenes. 3.5
Hugo 2011 Drama, Family, Fantasy A fantastical period family film by Martin Scorcese that sees a young boy living in a clock at Paris train station. Sacha Baron Cohen gives a great turn as the station inspector, but the story is a little laboured. 3
Billy Liar 1963 Comedy, Drama, Romance The film of the classic Keith Waterhouse play about a lazy young northerner doesn't always hit the right notes and it takes a superb performance from Tom Courtney to keep things interesting. 3
Fish Tank 2009 Drama A council estate teen with few ambitions and even less opportunity has her life turned upside down when she falls for her mums new boyfriend. Great performances and a couple of powerful scenes make it an interesting coming of age drama. 3.5
Donnie Darko 2001 Drama, Mystery, SciFi A troubled teen must deal with the knowledge that the world will end in less than a month, as prophesied by a man in a sinister rabbit suit. A clever, time travel cult hit. 4
Puzzle 2018 Drama An unfulfilled housewife gets a new lease of life when she rediscovers he love of Jigsaw puzzles and meets a free-spirited competitive puzzler. Sounds terrible, but was actually a heartfelt look at family life. 3.5
Horse Girl 2020 Drama, Mystery Co-written and starring the excellent Alison Brie, this is a really well made look at a woman struggling to cope with her family's history of mental health issues and her own possible descent. 3.5
Mulan 2020 Action, Adventure, Drama A stunningly beautiful grown-up take on Disney's historical animated adventure. It is a little light on story without the comedy sideshows, but a definite success. 3.5
Greenland 2020 Action, Drama, Thriller Another ridiculous Gerard Butler disaster flick, but this is nowhere near as bad as Geostorm. I almost enjoyed it. 2.5
Fatman 2020 Action, Comedy Mel Gibson as a whiskey-swigging, gun-toting Santa being pursued by a hitman hired by a disgruntled 12 year kid. Definitely not for kids, but a lot of fun! 3.5
The Personal History of David Copperfield 2019 Comedy, Drama, Period For the most part a verry funny and inventive take on the Dicken's classic. Whilst I did lose interest a little in the second half, it is on the whole a very enjoyable film with a great cast. 3.5
U Want Me 2 Kill Him? 2013 Drama, Thriller A boy tries to kill his friend following chat room conversations with the friend's sister and a mysterious woman. Apparently based on a true story. Dreadful in every regard. 1
I'm Thinking of Ending Things 2020 Drama I am a huge fan of Charlie Kaufmanas both a writer and director, but I found this his least accessible film yet. Great acting across the board but appeared to be trying too hard to be odd. 2.5
Rush 2013 Biopic, Drama, Sport Was expecting more from this biopic of James Hunt's famous rivalry with Niki Lauda, but was left disappointed. Not enough racing for a sport film and not enough insight for a character study. 3
Babylon 1980 Drama The story of an aspiring Reggae DJ and his close freinds as they try to make their way through Brixton life in Thatcher's Britain. Hasn't aged that well and the Jamaican slang can be hard to follow, but opens a window to a life many don't suffer 3
What We Did On Our Holidays 2014 Comedy, Drama To all intents and purposes a feature legnth episode of the BBC TV sitcom Outnumbered, but with a different cast. Mostly funny and engaging with a terrifically silly plot involving disposing of your dead grandpa! 3
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 2005 Comedy, Crime, Mystery An enjoyable and often amusing Shane Black crime caper that felt a little like a trial run (in style and humour) for his later film The Nice Guys. 3
The Peanut Butter Falcon 2019 Adventure, Comedy, Drama A lovely gentle film about a boy with Downs Syndrome who dreams of meeting an aging wrestler that he idolises, runs away and meets misunderstood bad boy Shia Labeouf. But for the language it would have been a great family film. 3.5
The More You Ignore Me 2018 Comedy, Drama Based on Jo Brand's novel about mental illness and Morrissey, it has some funny moments and there is definitely message in there somewhere. However Sheridan Smith is truly awful in her role. 3.5
Jellyfish 2018 Drama A schoolgirl finds her inner voice as a comedian whilst juggling caring for her young siblings and bi-polar single mum. A brilliantly told story with a great lead performance. 4
Over the Moon 2020 Adventure, Animation, Comedy A charming tale of bereavement that uses ancient Chinese myths and legends to great effect. The colourful world and characters make it a step above many recent animated family films. 3.5
The Lorax 2012 Adventure, Animation, Comedy Animated interpretation of the Dr. Seuss book, The Lorax has an ecological message told through the construct of a totally artificial town. Has a nice voice cast and a fun script, but is ultimately forgettable. 3
