Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 75% Jia Zhangke, a Guy from Fenyang (2016) "The problem with art like Jia's is that a straightforward approach isn't going to reveal anything that isn't already there in the work or document anything that the movies don't already document themselves. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 26, 2016
B- 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Much of what makes X-Men: Apocalypse legitimately interesting also makes it frustrating and lopsided. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 23, 2016
B+ 89% Kaili Blues (Lu Bian Ye Can) "Bi Gan's debut feature Kaili Blues ducks and doubles back like a fugitive trying to lose a tail, finding itself in stranger and stranger places. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "The Nice Guys is funny enough when it sticks to its heroes-whether pinned in a tight spot or bickering with each other-that its less-than-compelling intrigues and digressions come as an acceptable trade-off. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B+ 100% Kill Zone 2 (Saat po long 2) (2016) "Cheang keeps the movie in a state of exaggerated emotion; it opens with the choral "Lacrimosa" from Mozart's Requiem and a slow-mo shot tinted arterial red, and rarely lets up from there. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
B+ 63% High-Rise (2016) "As in Ballard's novel, the building isn't just a dystopian microcosm of alienation and stratification, with the wealthiest living at the top. It also seems to create a new reality of its own ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
C+ 78% Sunset Song (2016) "Stultifying in spots, the period drama Sunset Song marks an unexpected misstep for Terence Davies, the eccentric filmmaker whose movies evoke limbo states of memory and repressed feeling using a very British vocabulary of drab spaces. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
B+ 82% Belladonna of Sadness (Kanashimi no Beradona) (1973) "Perhaps too ambitious for its own good (or at least its budget), the film is impossible to dismiss, even if it exhausts its reserve of ideas. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
A 96% Band of Outsiders (Bande à part) (1964) "Behind its substantial charm and light touch is a movie that's more morbid, alienated, and personal than it lets on. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
C 88% Dheepan (2016) "Dheepan aspires to be a Taxi Driver for today's Europe, but ends up as a crude cross between Death Wish and Ken Loach. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
D 0% Term Life (2016) "This is the kind of material that can't be elevated without help from behind the camera. Instead, the actors are left to gesture aimlessly through a stupefacient fog of clichés and insipid direction. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
C- 13% Special Correspondents (2016) "Whatever point it might have is dulled by Gervais' cursory direction and a shortage of real-world overlap. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2016
C- 16% Ratchet & Clank (2016) "Like a lot of entertainment pitched at the family matinee audience, it sits at the zero point of watchability. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2016
B 79% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) "Like the horrific internal logic of an authentic fairy tale, the film's imperfections are part of what makes it unique. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 21, 2016
B- 88% My Big Night (Mi Gran Noche) (2016) "De La Iglesia is one of those directors who always gives off the impression that's he's having the time of his life, and he packs My Big Night with exaggerated angles, pops of super-saturated color, and pop-culture winks. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
B- 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "Talking animals have never looked so good, which is a bigger feat than it sounds. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
C+ 33% Criminal (2016) "Perhaps it's almost too perfect that the movie should suffer from a personality conflict of its own; too bad that it's the uninspired direction and not the demented pulpiness that dominates in the end. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
C+ 50% Demolition (2016) "Despite a few electric moments, the movie never makes anything of its stylized displays of frustration, ending in a whiff of narrative and emotional cop-outs. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 7, 2016
C 48% Hardcore Henry (2016) "Hardcore Henry never aspires to rise above its one gimmick. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 7, 2016
B- 100% I Don't Belong Anywhere - Le cinéma de Chantal Akerman "This brief and effective primer on Akerman's work ("I think the word 'career' is inappropriate for my life," she says at the beginning) doubles as a profile of the outspoken, animated filmmaker. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
D 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Williams is never shown composing; if characters didn't occasionally mention it, you'd never know he was a songwriter, let alone one of the all-time American greats. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
C+ 88% Francofonia (2016) "Francofonia is scatterbrained, occasionally leaden, frequently redundant, crammed with false starts and dead ends, wrapped in gauzy greenish murk. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
B+ 83% Afternoon (Na Ri Xia Wu) "Candid and audaciously minimalist, Afternoon risks self-indulgence, but comes out with insight. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
C+ 79% No Home Movie (2016) "There is an element of drama that an audience very familiar with Akerman's work can't help but project on to the pointedly non-eventful footage. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 30, 2016
B- 88% Born To Be Blue (2016) "The film is given a spark of life by the inspired casting of Ethan Hawke. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 24, 2016
B 91% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) "It's a treat to watch, covered in eccentric strokes and oddball details that seem too specific not to be extremely personal. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 17, 2016
A- 83% Midnight Special (2016) "Midnight Special defines characters through what they can't understand, contrasting fear of the unknown with faith in it, and flipping the supernatural into a metaphor for the everyday. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 17, 2016
C- 38% Me Him Her (2016) "As scraggly and eager as a teenage cover band fumbling through its first set. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 10, 2016
C+ 63% Creative Control (2016) "Combines a satire of corporate hipsterdom with a metaphor for personal alienation and sexual fantasy, without ever completely committing to either. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 10, 2016
A 100% Late Spring (1949) "Each shot in Late Spring is striking on its own; the mature Ozu belongs to that rare category of filmmakers whose work can be recognized from a single frame. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 3, 2016
F 25% London Has Fallen (2016) "London Has Fallen is one of those rare films that is good at absolutely nothing. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 2, 2016
C 12% Gods Of Egypt (2016) "A wannabe franchise-starter that feels like it was adapted from a tabletop role-playing game, with strict rules that need to be repeatedly stated out loud and a bestiary of creatures. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 25, 2016
C+ 46% Tricked (Steekspel) (2016) "Bereft of subtext and shot in a largely handheld, TV-ready style, it lacks Verhoeven's usual deep bite, despite the cynical punch line of the ending. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 25, 2016
C 29% Marguerite & Julien (Marguerite et Julien) (2016) "Marguerite & Julien's romance is a non-item, but Donzelli sprinkles it with faux naiveté, which has the aftertaste of an artificial sweetener. Who would ever want to see this movie? " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 25, 2016
C+ 52% Risen (2016) "The film ends up falling into a loop of abortive climaxes, set against an indistinguishable beige-gray backdrop of limestone, before the inevitable cheap-looking flash of CGI light in a scraggly field. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 18, 2016
B- 99% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) "Whenever the movie teeters on the edge of poetic madness-like when Manduca voices his belief that Theo represents the redemption of the white colonials-Guerra's commitment to thesis is there to pull it back into the literalism. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 16, 2016
B+ 86% Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016) "There's no denying the poignancy of its themes, phrased and developed wordlessly, though props and gestures-a wedding invitation found covered in dust, spare sets of keys carried like memories, and so on. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 11, 2016
C 59% Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016) "Greenaway's obsessions with sex, food, and vengeance sometimes cover up the fact that he has no idea how to explain why people want anything, but not here. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 4, 2016
B- 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Somewhere in there are stretches of the Coens' funniest comedy since The Big Lebowski; it just takes a little patience. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 4, 2016
C+ 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "Kung Fu Panda 3 is often inspired as animation, and tired as everything else. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 28, 2016
D- 5% Exposed (2016) "The confused, heel-dragging mystery drama Exposed suggests an especially dour, arty episode of Law & Order: SVU, minus any reasons to keep watching. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 28, 2016
C 17% The 5th Wave (2016) "A kids-trained-to-kill sci-fi flick that turns mildly subversive right before taking a headlong dive into sub-Twilight soap ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 21, 2016
C- 30% Mojave (2016) "Does the movie know it's a joke? " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 21, 2016
C- 42% Moonwalkers (2016) "Perhaps it was only a matter of time before we started seeing movies by people who consider Guy Ritchie a formative influence. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 14, 2016
C+ 51% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "A cool 90-minute action flick padded out into a lumbering ooh-rah male weepie. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 14, 2016
B 94% In The Shadow of Women (2016) "Perhaps, having made so many movies that feel like ghost stories, Garrel deserves to take it easy for once. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 14, 2016
B+ 93% The Treasure (2016) "Though it almost overplays its hand with a Robin Hood storybook motif, The Treasure manages a tricky balance between low-key social satire and total fantasy. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 7, 2016
D 21% Diablo (2016) "Roeck aims for an homage to Eastwood Sr.'s revisionist Westerns (think The Outlaw Josey Wales, Unforgiven, etc.), but the result is pretentious and pointless. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 7, 2016
A 97% Chimes at Midnight (1965) "The best and most touchingly personal of all Shakespeare adaptations, Chimes At Midnight is pervaded by melancholy and loneliness, even though its characters are almost seen never alone. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 31, 2015
D+ 9% Point Break (2015) "Boldly reimagining Kathryn Bigelow's cult favorite as a movie where absolutely nobody seems to be having any fun, the new Point Break drops the original's Zen-like balance of macho mysticism and camp in favor of dour humorlessness. " ‐ AV Club
