Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 87% The Skeleton Twins (2014) "It may not always work as a drama but The Skeleton Twins proves to be a fine showcase for Wiig and Hader, showing they are both capable of dramatic material. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Feb 1, 2014
C- 36% God's Pocket (2014) "Featuring grotesque depictions of a bar full of sad sacks that would make Alexander Payne wince, the film is almost unrepentantly nasty towards its characters. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Feb 1, 2014
B 80% The One I Love (2014) "It's a very small-scale, unassuming relationship movie (with a heady little twist), but it sneaks up on you. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Feb 1, 2014
B+ 95% 20,000 Days on Earth (2014) "While the doc should prove essential for Nick Cave fans, it should be inspiring for those interested in the creative process or anyone searching for their muse. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 23, 2014
C+ 45% Life After Beth (2014) "...Baena's debut just never really comes to life and unfortunately lacks the bite the best of the genre has to offer. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 23, 2014
B 90% The Guest (2014) "The director-writer team have crafted a great-looking and sincere genre throwback without resorting to pastiche of some of their peers. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 23, 2014
C- 46% Wish I Was Here (2014) "At almost two hours, the film feels every minute of it, building to a climax that basically amounts to the platitude "being a father is really hard." " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 23, 2014
B- 88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "Not as arty as The American or Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or as soapy and quickly paced as its small screen counterparts, A Most Wanted Man is left somewhere in the middle. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 23, 2014
B- 70% C.O.G. (2013) "Despite some good performances and sharp screenplay, C.O.G., like its lead character, seems stuck in the space between. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 20, 2013
C 63% The Green Inferno "It seems, ironically, much more amateurish than any of Roth's previous features, to the point where you start to wonder why he chose this as his comeback vehicle. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 13, 2013
B 52% The To Do List (2013) "You may not realize until you're watching The To Do List how refreshing it is just to see this familiar story told from the female perspective. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 23, 2013
C 21% Girl Most Likely (2013) "The desire to escape your hometown and reshape your identity is potentially rich territory to explore but the script by Michelle Morgan looks only to mine from the surface so you end up with trite lessons about how there's no place like home. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 17, 2013
B+ 86% Submarine (2011) "Submarine is a remarkably assured debut filled with dry humor, inventive visual wit and great performances. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C+ 86% Terri (2011) "...An enjoyable coming-of-age film but a few of the darker sequences and the general feeling that you've seen this story before might keep it from being a larger success. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C+ 47% The Details (2012) "Despite some tonal stumbles, the film mostly finds its footing and becomes an enjoyable comic enterprise. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C 86% Boy (2012) "The momentum from the opening dissipates early and without a real engine pushing the movie foward, it begins to drag...the film is 87 minutes and feels like it's 2 hours. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
D+ 57% Detachment (2012) "A bizarre, well intentioned mess, at the very least, Detachment is never dull...even as the film is bad, it's compulsively watchable. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B 98% Project Nim (2011) "This smart doc should prove the perfect summer antidote to most of summer's films that require you to turn your brain off to enjoy them. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C 58% Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011) "Completists of del Toro will want to check it out as a curio but it's hard to imagine general audiences or even horror fans finding anything here they haven't seen before. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
D+ 29% Twixt (2013) "As much as the budget appears to have been a constraint on the effects of the film, it shouldn't have affected the acting or coherency of the picture. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C+ 21% 360 (2012) "If the film had not been afraid to go a little darker, dig a little deeper and develop its characters beyond their stereotypes, it would have been a much stronger effort. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B 94% Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey (2011) "Even if Elmo was a little after your time, the doc is sure to wring a few tears out of nostalgia prone adults with its behind-the-scenes look at a show everybody grew up with. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C+ 56% Bachelorette (2012) "Three bridesmaids embark on a non-stop parade of debauchery fueled by coke, booze, and pills... for all those people that wished Bridesmaids was more like The Hangover. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B- 70% Liberal Arts (2012) "Some of the insights are a bit simplistic but for most of the running time, the film is an enjoyable diversion. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B 38% Nobody Walks (2012) "Full of humor and humanity, Nobody Walks is an emotionally complex, acutely observed and sensual film and one of the best at Sundance this year. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C 86% Robot & Frank (2012) "While the premise certainly makes it stand out from the sea of dysfunctional family dramas, a cute idea alone doesn't quite cut it. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B 46% Save The Date (2012) "Light in tone without being insubstantial, this is what more romantic comedies should aspire to be. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C- 33% Cheerful Weather For The Wedding (2012) "The film may help Downton Abbey fanatics looking to kill a little time in that era but holds little cinematic appeal for the rest of us. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C- 36% The Truth About Emanuel (2014) "This reveal happens about 30 minutes into the film and the remaining hour is spent like a dark, humorless episode of Three's Company. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B+ 100% Rewind This! (2013) "Rewind This! is both a history lesson and love letter to a format which should prove to be a must-see for all cinephiles that came of age during the VHS era. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B+ 68% Afternoon Delight (2013) "Somewhere between a comedy and drama, Afternoon Delight may not go down as easy as the title suggests but it's one of the unexpected highlights of this year's Sundance Film Festival. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2013
B 80% Crystal Fairy (2013) "While the film is loose, there's never a moment where you're taken out of the picture by realizing the actors might not know where they're heading next. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 9, 2013
B- 92% Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me (2013) "The band's trajectory will not be unfamiliar to anyone who has read a musician's biography or watched a few episodes of Behind The Music (formation > inspiration > destruction) so the only real variables are in how the story is being told. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 3, 2013
B 85% The Way Way Back (2013) "Carell's character is certainly a darker one than we've seen from him before, and that may be a tough sell for audiences used to the actor playing sunnier types. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 5, 2013
B- 74% The East (2013) "Though the script...could've used another polish, as a filmmaker, Batmanglij is still at the head of the class of up-and-coming directors...The East is definitely a movie that's going to divide people but it'll be a conversation worth having. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted May 31, 2013
B+ 75% The Kings of Summer (2013) "While the premise of the film is outlandish, the feelings are all real...Director Vogt-Roberts and screenwriter Chris Galletta are in perfect unison on this film, harmonizing to create what feels like a fresh comic voice. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted May 30, 2013
B 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) "Wilde & Johnson have such palpable chemistry that simple scenes of drinking, playing cards and joking around become filled with the suspense of whether or not they're going to make a move on each other. It helps that the pair are also really funny... " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Mar 11, 2013
C- 62% Evil Dead (2013) "If the original was Raimi's inventive soufflĂ© of horror and slapstick, in the remake Alvarez seems content to simply show us the ingredients...without knowing how to put them together into anything scary, involving or inventive. " ‐ The Playlist
