MovieViews


The MovieMuse Reviews (MovieViews) database is a searchable collection of films that the team have watched, providing a comprehensive guide on what to watch and what to avoid. 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. For more recent entries we are also including a link to the film’s IMDb page and a trailer from YouTube.

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.

I, Robot 2004 Action, SciFi A bit too 'set-piecey' in places, but Smith is great in a slightly more serious role but the Audi product placement gets a bit incredulous. 3.5
I, Daniel Blake 2016 Drama Will make you laugh, cry and rage about the hypocrisy and bureaucracy of the welfare state as a man who is too unwell to work finds he is not entitled to incapacity benefits and a young mother struggles to provide for her kids. 4.5
If Cats Disappeared from the World 2016 Drama, Fantasy, Foreign Language Beautifully shot and expertly told tale of love, loss, life and death. 4
Imperium 2016 Crime, Drama, Thriller A decent enough telling of a true tale, though Radcliffe's transformation from weedy geek to white supremacist is all a little too easy. 3
In a Valley of Violence 2016 Action, Western Part ‘First Blood in the wild west’ and part animal talent show. Almost pulls it off. 3
Independence Day Resurgence 2016 Action, Adventure, SciFi Inane script, awful acting, bad modelling, terrible score. And those are its good oints. Almost no redeeming qualities whatsoever. A lesson in how to kill a franchise. 1.5
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 1989 Action, Adventure Click to see our Box Set review. 4
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull 2008 Action, Adventure Click to see our Box Set review. 2
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom 1984 Action, Adventure Click to see our Box Set review. 3
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
