Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
0.5/4 7% Mother's Day (2016) "A film so awful that if one were to put up a list of the great films celebrating motherhood, it would rank considerably lower than the Gus van Sant version of "Psycho." " ‐
Posted Apr 28, 2016
1/4 0% Precious Cargo (2016) "You will be hard-pressed to remember anything about it even only a few minutes after watching it, which should come as a relief to everyone involved with its production. " ‐
Posted Apr 22, 2016
4/4 96% The Measure of a Man (La loi du marché) (2016) ""The Measure of a Man" may be a hard film to watch at times, but with Lindon's great performance at its center, it is one from which you cannot look away. " ‐
Posted Apr 15, 2016
1/4 31% Criminal (2016) ""Criminal" is the kind of dunderheaded enterprise that leaves viewers reeling from the idiocies they have just endured, wondering how something like that could possibly get made in the first place. " ‐
Posted Apr 14, 2016
80% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "As things progress, however, director Roar Uthaug allows his film to succumb to the same flaws that have undone many an American disaster film. " ‐
Posted Mar 29, 2016
80% Road Games (2016) "Despite that late inning stumble, Road Games still provides enough suspense, thrills and dark humor to leave genre buffs more than satisfied. " ‐
Posted Mar 29, 2016
98% Zootopia (2016) "You may be taken aback by just how good it really is. " ‐
Posted Mar 29, 2016
0.5/4 24% London Has Fallen (2016) "A horrible and wildly unnecessary follow-up that might actually be worse than its predecessor. " ‐
Posted Mar 3, 2016
3.5/4 96% Nina Forever (2016) ""Nina Forever" subverts audience expectations at every turn and develops the kind of genuine emotional power that keeps it from being just another gory goof. " ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
2.5/4 42% Jane Got a Gun (2016) "The problem with the film is that it never quite finds that final spark of inspiration that might have made it worth seeing, let alone producing in the first place, and it is further hampered by some clunkiness in the storytelling department. " ‐
Posted Jan 29, 2016
2/4 63% The Finest Hours (2016) "The 3-D conversion is so murky that there are long stretches where it is almost impossible to discern what is going on up on the screen. " ‐
Posted Jan 29, 2016
3.5/4 100% Aferim! (2016) "Jude gets strong performances from his three leads and, with the help of cinematographer Marius Panduru, has created an uncommonly beautiful film ... that at times evokes the simple beauties of classic Westerns. " ‐
Posted Jan 22, 2016
1/4 51% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "There is a good and interesting movie out there to be made about the tragic events at Benghazi and the political aftermath but "13 Hours" is definitely not it. " ‐
Posted Jan 14, 2016
1.5/4 14% The Masked Saint (2016) "The only thing about it worth remembering is that it was the last film made by wrestler-turned-actor Roddy Piper before his death last year. " ‐
Posted Jan 8, 2016
1.5/4 9% Point Break (2015) "25 years later, we have now been blessed a "Point Break" remake that is completely lacking in any of the visceral thrills or apparent charisma of the original and which could not be duller if it tried. " ‐
Posted Dec 26, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "Pixar has returned with their fifteenth feature, Inside Out, and I am happy... to inform you that they have evidently regained their magic touch and then some. Not only is it their best movie in years, it is one of their best period. " ‐
Posted Dec 8, 2015
4/5 79% Tales of Halloween "As is the case with all films of this type, your mileage will vary depending on the number of stories that you wind up liking. " ‐
Posted Dec 7, 2015
3/4 66% Krampus (2015) "Although there are some amusing moments here and there and a couple of nicely effective scary bits, it is never quite as darkly funny nor as frightening as it would like to be ... " ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2015
4/5 88% Turbo Kid (2015) "A cheerfully silly and goofily gory homage to 80's-era cheapo action films whose boxes always promised more than they ever came close to delivering. " ‐
Posted Dec 1, 2015
94% Creed (2015) "Creed is superior popular entertainment that shows that a mass audience can be electrified by a film that does not rely on elaborate set-pieces or complicated special effects. " ‐
Posted Dec 1, 2015
2.5/4 76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "The film will satisfy younger viewers, I suppose, but unless your kids are especially gaga over dinosaurs, my guess is that even they will recognize that it is lacking a certain something that separates the great films from the ordinary ones. " ‐
Posted Nov 24, 2015
1/4 33% By The Sea (2015) "Such a borderline unendurable exercise in vapid self-indulgence that it almost feels like an exceptionally straight-faced parody of empty-headed star vehicles. " ‐
Posted Nov 13, 2015
1/4 44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "A deeply irritating horror-comedy that might have worked as a "Funny or Die" short but which is pretty much DOA as a feature-length concern. " ‐
Posted Oct 29, 2015
0.5/4 14% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) "The sixth time is not the charm with this load of hooey that tries to make up for its lack of legitimate scares or basic narrative clarity by adding the alleged miracle of 3-D into the mix. " ‐
Posted Oct 23, 2015
3.5/4 79% The Assassin (2015) "Visually ravishing and formally graceful ... " ‐
Posted Oct 16, 2015
3.5/4 95% The Forbidden Room (2015) "Those who demand that their films offer up some kind of conventional narrative structure will no doubt throw up their hands and leave early on in the proceedings. Those that stick it out, however, will be rewarded with one delight after another. " ‐
Posted Oct 8, 2015
2.5/4 76% A Christmas Horror Story "Whenever one of the stories begins to generate any real head of steam, viewers are jerked into another one and the whole process starts over again. " ‐
Posted Oct 2, 2015
3.5/4 80% Incompresa (Misunderstood) (2015) "An occasionally strange, occasionally brutal and occasionally lovely work that goes up on the shelf with "The Ocean of Helena Lee" and "Girlhood" as one of the more impressive coming-of-age tales of recent times. " ‐
Posted Sep 25, 2015
4/4 81% The New Girlfriend (2015) "A wildly entertaining work, one that manages to be simultaneously funny, touching, slightly unnerving and undeniably sexy to behold, regardless of where your predilections may lie. " ‐
Posted Sep 18, 2015
4/4 85% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Those with stronger constitutions will find it to be an excursion to the cinematic dark side that is a million times removed from such recent genre gibberish as "Unfriended" or "The Gallows." " ‐
Posted Sep 11, 2015
3.5/4 92% Coming Home (2015) "What this film may lack in terms of visual flamboyance, it more than makes up for in telling its simple and direct story with a raw, emotional power that doesn't need lavish spectacle in order to get its point across. " ‐
Posted Sep 9, 2015
1.5/4 16% The Transporter Refueled (2015) ""The Transporter Refueled" is an unnecessary bore from start to finish, one that even the most devoted Luc Besson fanatics ... will find difficult to defend. " ‐
Posted Sep 3, 2015
0.5/4 45% No Escape (2015) "A dreadful and creepily exploitative would-be thriller, low-grade trash that it is too silly and stupid to be as offensive as it frequently comes close to being throughout. " ‐
Posted Aug 26, 2015
1.5/4 15% The Curse of Downers Grove (2015) "Too dumb to be scary, too listlessly written and directed to be suspenseful and too unpleasant to work as camp ... " ‐
Posted Aug 21, 2015
0.5/4 13% Return to Sender (2015) "[It] seems to exist only to answer the unasked question "What would "I Spit on Your Grave" have been like if the main character had been Martha Stewart?" " ‐
Posted Aug 14, 2015
3.5/4 67% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) "A wildly ambitious and frequently fascinating film that moviegoers of all ages should find both entertaining and provocative in equal measure. " ‐
Posted Aug 7, 2015
2.5/4 52% A LEGO Brickumentary (2015) "Most of this is interesting enough, although a little too self-congratulatory at times, but "A LEGO Brickumentary" never really goes much deeper than that ... " ‐
Posted Jul 31, 2015
1.5/4 17% Pixels (2015) "When one considers how good this material might have been if placed in the right hands, to see it squandered this way makes it almost more painful to view than the typical Sandler stinker. " ‐
Posted Jul 24, 2015
1/4 34% Lila & Eve (2015) "Davis (who also served as a co-producer) does her damnedest to make something of her character and while not even her undeniable gifts make anything of it, it is oddly inspiring to see her at least making the effort. " ‐
Posted Jul 17, 2015
1/4 14% The Gallows (2015) "A ridiculous fusion of "Paranormal Activity" and "Glee" that is so incredibly dumb that it is almost, but never quite, scary to behold. " ‐
Posted Jul 10, 2015
2/4 76% Big Game (2015) "There are times when it seems impossible that it could possibly exist as a real thing and not just as a parody trailer that accidentally got inflated to feature length. " ‐
Posted Jun 26, 2015
2/4 0% Freedom (2015) "This is one of those movies that is as dull as it is well-meaning and man, is it ever well-meaning. " ‐
Posted Jun 5, 2015
2/4 7% Survivor (2015) "Pretty much plays like a film made for basic cable that is buoyed for a while by a couple of relatively strong central performances before eventually succumbing to terminal mediocrity in its silly final scenes. " ‐
Posted May 29, 2015
3.5/4 75% The Connection (2015) "While the results inevitably pale in comparison to "The French Connection"-which could be said about virtually every other film currently in release-they do make for an above-average work that offers viewers a new perspective on a familiar story. " ‐
Posted May 15, 2015
1.5/4 31% Echoes of War (2015) "A giant bore that presents viewers with the most familiar plot devices imaginable but fails to present them in a way that makes them worth sitting through once again. " ‐
Posted May 15, 2015
4/4 No Score Yet The Ocean of Helena Lee (2015) "There is not a single boring shot, and yet, at the same time, Akin never allows the style to overwhelm the story he is telling. " ‐
Posted May 8, 2015
1.5/4 78% Hyena (2015) "I suspect that anyone who actually makes it to the bitter end will be enraged by what it does and does not contain. " ‐
Posted May 1, 2015
2/4 8% The Forger (2015) "It never for a single moment makes a plausible case for its own existence. " ‐
Posted Apr 24, 2015
2/4 77% Felix & Meira (2015) "It tells a not-especially-interesting story about a not-especially-interesting couple from two different worlds that goes on and on before reaching its not-especially-interesting conclusion. " ‐
Posted Apr 17, 2015
3.5/4 63% The Harvest (2015) "A smart and strong genre work that makes up for a relative lack of gore and viscera with plenty of tension and suspense and a number of impressive performances. " ‐
