Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
3/4 84% Night Moves (2014) " Ms. Reichardt does a stand-up job building suspense, with pockets of action here and there ..." — New York Observer
Posted May 28, 2014
2/4 49% Maleficent (2014) " Robert Stromberg's visually stunning if narratively predictable debut feature." — New York Observer
Posted May 28, 2014
2.5/4 63% The Grand Seduction (2014) " If the film feels a bit clunky at times, it rarely slips into cliché." — New York Observer
Posted May 28, 2014
3/4 86% Cold in July (2014) " It has a seedy underbelly that will appeal to hard-core Mickle fans; it's more deranged than it initially seems." — New York Observer
Posted May 21, 2014
3/4 43% Words And Pictures (2014) " Predictable as it is lovely, with disappointments, regrets and resolutions all thrown into the mix of an uplifting tale." — New York Observer
Posted May 21, 2014
1/4 11% The Angriest Man in Brooklyn (2014) " Mr. Williams' performance is so grating that you may find yourself more infuriated than amused." — New York Observer
Posted May 21, 2014
3/4 74% Godzilla (2014) " Godzilla is loud and grandiose at times, but it's also an elegant, understated and welcome approach to the kaiju genre." — New York Observer
Posted May 15, 2014
2.5/4 87% The Immigrant (2014) " Neither Ewa nor Bruno has much depth and often come off as stock characters in a movie with little new to offer about the immigrant experience." — New York Observer
Posted May 15, 2014
3/4 73% A Short History Of Decay (2014) " Modest but winsome." — New York Observer
Posted May 14, 2014
3/4 83% Blue Caprice (2013) " The most frightening monster movie of the year." — New York Observer
Posted Sep 4, 2013
2.5/4 32% A Teacher (2013) " If the title is vague, so is the script, which, at times seems to mistake ambiguity for complexity." — New York Observer
Posted Sep 4, 2013
1/4 59% The Frozen Ground (2013) " A vague and forgettable crime thriller that would have benefited from more character development or at least a grounding of the narrative in one central protagonist." — New York Observer
Posted Aug 21, 2013
99% Short Term 12 (2013) " Short Term 12 strikes a delicate balance between emotional turbulence and artful understatement." — New York Observer
Posted Aug 20, 2013
2/4 68% Elysium (2013) " Like Max, the movie has to keep moving, and Mr. Blomkamp lets you fill in the gaps yourself as it progresses. Or not." — New York Observer
Posted Aug 14, 2013
2.5/4 89% You Will Be My Son (2013) " A kind of parable that is as much an effective portrait of intergenerational struggle as it is a slick psychological thriller with Shakespearian shadings." — New York Observer
Posted Aug 14, 2013
3/4 79% Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013) " If Ain't Them Bodies Saints seems insubstantial in structure, it may be because Mr. Lowery has chosen to focus on appearance over plot, which doesn't mean the movie is less effective as a result." — New York Observer
Posted Aug 14, 2013
2.5/4 83% Prince Avalanche (2013) " Mr. Green has managed to turn a story about two road workers doing road work into something compelling." — New York Observer
