Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 82% The Assassin (2015) "It's glorious to look at and impossible to stop pondering. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Nov 5, 2015
B+ 69% Crimson Peak (2015) "Crimson Peak is a vision that is del Toro's and del Toro's alone, and while it's not his most compelling work, it's very surely his most beautiful. That alone makes it worth the price of admission. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Oct 16, 2015
B- 93% The Martian (2015) "As always, Scott's direction is spot-on, especially in terms of pure visual spectacle... Alas, Scott's hand is almost always too cold when it comes to working with a human touch. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Sep 30, 2015
A- 93% Skyfall (2012) "One of the year's most crackling adventure films, one of Bond's most satisfying outings, and proof that you can indeed teach an old horndog new tricks. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Aug 21, 2015
96% Ratatouille (2007) "It's not just the best animated film this year, it's the best animated film to come out of the U.S. since Bird's last effort, The Incredibles. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Aug 3, 2015
C- 87% Mr. Holmes (2015) "A film that robs one of our greatest heroes of his sunset, thrusting him instead into a prolonged, dull twilight. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jul 16, 2015
B 72% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) "While it never soars to the heights of Raimi's first two films, it manages to be at once exhilarating, hilarious and bold. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jul 14, 2015
B- 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) "Frustrates as much as it entertains. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jul 14, 2015
A 100% The Third Man (1949) "What really makes the film sing, though, isn't the jaunty and iconic zither score by Anton Karas. It's the film's groundbreaking visual aesthetic, which combines noir tropes with expressionism to create a visual wonderland of living shadows. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jul 1, 2015
A- 96% It Follows (2015) "Like Jennifer Kent's masterful The Babadook, It Follows is anchored by excellent performances and layered with subtext. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted May 13, 2015
A 73% Inherent Vice (2015) "While some may find its strange, stream-of-consciousness approach to be grating, others will be enthralled with each and every gorgeously composed frame. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 7, 2015
C+ 65% A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) "For all its strengths, A Walk Among the Tombstones consistently falls victim to the Achilles' heel of any film based on a pulpy piece of airport fiction: ham-fistedness. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 6, 2015
C+ 71% Interstellar (2014) "This is a Nolan film, so nothing is simple -- or quick to the point. At nearly three hours, the film piles on the twists, wonky physics, heartfelt speeches and pseudoscience. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 5, 2015
B+ 91% Locke (2014) "This is a perfect vehicle for Hardy's talents, and despite the absence of anybody but the jagged-toothed Brit, Locke manages a strange level of tension. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 5, 2015
C- 88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "Perhaps it accurately conveys the more mundane side of the war on terror, but that doesn't make for an entertaining film. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 5, 2015
B 74% Godzilla (2014) "Edwards' reboot excels on so many levels, it's easy to forget that Godzilla originally served as a cautionary tale about nuclear testing and man's hubris in the golden age of science. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 5, 2015
B+ 95% Nightcrawler (2014) "The film is as funny as it is unsettling... and it's plenty unsettling. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 4, 2015
B+ 88% Gone Girl (2014) "Pike, meanwhile, is a revelation, offering a performance so complex that saying anything more would ruin the entire film. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 4, 2015
B+ 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) "Despite all odds, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes really is the most emotionally engaging blockbuster you're likely to see all year, a perfect mix of explosive action and poignant drama that delivers a master class in escapist entertainment. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 4, 2015
B+ 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) "For those of us who remember the limitlessness of our imaginations as we played with little plastic blocks, this is a joy to behold. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 3, 2015
A- 98% The Babadook (2014) "The Babadook doesn't just tower over this year's other fright films: It's one of the most emotionally affecting pieces of macabre cinema in years. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 3, 2015
A 95% Snowpiercer (2014) "It's the most inventive science-fiction picture in years, the most original action film in a decade and perhaps the most all-around entertaining movie so far this year. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 2, 2015
A- 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) "X-Men: Days of Future Past not just a great comic book movie. It's the film X-Men fans have been waiting for. It's good to have the band back together. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 2, 2015
A- 85% John Wick (2014) "Unburdened by exposition, Reeves is free to do what he does best: be one of his generation's best action stars. John Wick is a perfect vehicle for him. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Oct 22, 2014
D+ 79% 42 (2013) "42 is a hackneyed, cookie-cutter film that manages to tell us absolutely nothing about a turning point in American history. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted May 7, 2014
C+ 19% Transcendence (2014) "In moving between the smaller story of tragic lovers and a greater fable about the dangers of playing God, Pfister's film jackknifes jarringly, with characters inexplicably switching allegiances and fundamentally flipping their ideals halfway through. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Apr 16, 2014
90% Alphaville (1965) "Its melding of classic Hollywood archetypes and a terrifying future was ahead of its time when it was released. Five decades later, filmmakers are still trying to catch up. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Apr 1, 2014
A- 96% Argo (2012) "By not pandering sentimentality, Affleck has managed a task that, like its subject, seems impossible: He's taken what others would have turned into farce and emerged with one of the year's best pictures. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Jan 10, 2014
B 70% The Wolverine (2013) "It's basically a high-budget take on an old-school samurai flick, with Wolverine as the ronin. And it's as awesome as it sounds. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Dec 30, 2013
B+ 89% The World's End (2013) "Wright is one of the most original and energetic filmmakers out there, and paired with Pegg and Frost's expert rapport and a highly charismatic cast, there is no limit to what the team can tackle. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Dec 30, 2013
B 81% Prisoners (2013) "It's engaging and gut-wrenching -- without diving into an abyss of emotional torture in the name of entertainment. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Dec 21, 2013
B 95% War Witch (2013) "War Witch doesn't sermonize or propose a solution to its larger problems. It's a portrait of a life. It just so happens that said life is playing out in a living hell. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Dec 17, 2013
B 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) "Though flawed, Catching Fire manages something no adaptation since Harry Potter has: It respects its fans enough to challenge them while maturing alongside them. " ‐ Willamette Week
Posted Dec 8, 2013
60% Bad Milo! (2013) "This is Marino's film all the way, and the comic vet of Wet Hot American Summer and Party Down effortlessly steps into the spotlight after decades in supporting roles. " ‐ Willamette Week
