Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "Steers nails the aesthetics - zombies in ornate period dress are both amusing and chilling - but has his actors playing it completely, thuddingly straight. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/4 70% Tumbledown (2016) "Sudeikis, often cast as genial everyman, is quite good in a more prickly role, and Hall brings her characteristic nuance to a smart but lost character, processing the death of a partner who's mourned, but misunderstood, by legions of fans. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 3, 2016
4/4 100% 2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Animated (2016) "Each painstakingly crafted film deftly articulates a fundamental longing for connection. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 29, 2016
3/4 69% The Magicians: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The book's fans may not be completely satisfied - dialogue often doesn't do justice to Grossman's withering prose - but the spirit of this dark-natured series is intact. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 25, 2016
3/4 60% Monster Hunt (2016) "If you're willing to overlook some monstrously big plot holes and logic gaps, this half-animated Chinese blockbuster is an agreeably bonkers, occasionally disturbing cinematic ride. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 20, 2016
3.5/4 80% Naz & Maalik (2016) "Smart, wholly original and graced with two commanding performances, this is one tiny indie worth seeking out. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 20, 2016
2.5/4 30% The Benefactor (2016) "Fanning has little to do beyond grasping her prosthetic stomach, but James is a decent foil for Gere, who gives form to the highly topical subject of how pain meds destroy lives. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 15, 2016
1/4 7% Norm of the North (2016) "If I wasn't already convinced of this movie's obnoxiousness, its rendering of Graham's character sealed the deal. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 14, 2016
2/4 32% Anesthesia (2016) "Overall the film plays like an annotated philosophy lecture, with Nelson using various interwoven characters to flesh out Waterston's talking points. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 6, 2016
1/4 88% Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art (2016) "I'm sure there is a compelling case to be made for the significance of land art, a nature-centric movement that gained popularity in the early 1960s, but "Troublemakers" does not make it. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 6, 2016
2/4 31% Daddy's Home (2015) "To be fair, Ferrell is almost always at least mildly funny, even when doing something as lame as skateboarding into a power line, but Wahlberg's cowboy shtick just seems half-hearted. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 22, 2015
3/4 74% Where to Invade Next (2016) "I've never seen Moore focus on women's rights before, and I'm curious to see where this discovery leads him. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 22, 2015
3/4 60% Sisters (2015) ""Sisters" is a witty and occasionally wise take on sibling bonds and adulthood - even if the latter only arrives kicking and screaming. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 17, 2015
1.5/4 58% Noma: My Perfect Storm (2015) "I've never seen a restaurant documentary that seemed less interested in showing the joy of food. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 16, 2015
3/4 91% The Girl in the Book (2015) "Though its resolution is a bit pat, most of "The Girl in the Book" is a smart and pointed look at abuses of power and roles women too often play in the literary world. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3/4 95% Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo) (2015) "Subtle it's not, but this bleak fable does pack an emotional punch. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 10, 2015
1/4 65% Krampus (2015) "This very capable cast has absolutely no wit to work with in a screenplay co-written by Dougherty. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 3, 2015
2/4 73% A Royal Night Out (2015) "Unless viewers are aficionados of the old royal family, I'm not sure how interested they'll be in following two posh-accented young women chasing through drunken crowds in period dress, though Powley, in particular, is a charmer. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 3, 2015
4/4 70% The Danish Girl (2015) "One of the year's finest films. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 24, 2015
2/4 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "The final installment of the "Hunger Games" franchise manages to give us everything we've been waiting for and still underwhelm. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 19, 2015
2.5/4 47% Criminal Activities (2015) "An eleventh hour twist adds a bit of intrigue, and everyone - including Haley himself, as a henchman - seems to be having a pretty good time. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 19, 2015
3/4 80% Man Up (2015) "A lot more fun than many heftier, supposed rom-coms, thanks to the timing and chemistry of its leads. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 13, 2015
2/4 43% The 33 (2015) "It's never a good sign when the real people behind a movie's story appear in the end credits and you're stumped as to who's who. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 13, 2015
2/4 33% My All American (2015) ""My All American" would have done better to dig deeper in its portrayal of a man who set such a high bar for the intrinsic character of a football player. Because he's actually the kind of example the sport could really use right now. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 13, 2015
2.5/4 68% Miss You Already (2015) "The film belongs to Barrymore and Collette, who generate a palpable BFF chemistry that will defy you not to be choked up by the time the credits roll. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 5, 2015
3/4 89% What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy (2015) "British human rights lawyer Philippe Sands' interviews with two sons of senior Nazi officials make for a chilling study in contrasts ... " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 5, 2015
3/4 96% The Armor Of Light (2015) "At what point does calling yourself "pro-life" conflict with being pro-gun? Evangelical minister Rob Schenck, a longtime anti-abortion activist, wrestles with that question in this bold directorial debut from Abigail Disney. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 28, 2015
2/4 18% Jem and the Holograms (2015) "Director Jon Chu stretches "Jem" to a ridiculous 2 hours, via endless amateur-musician YouTube clips. Anyone can be a star, they attest - and always be yourself! (Except when you're Jem. I guess.) " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 22, 2015
2/4 66% Nasty Baby (2015) "Wiig and Adebimpe give appealing, naturalistic performances ... but it's not enough to keep the otherwise rambling narrative together. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 21, 2015
2/4 73% Suffragette (2015) "Despite Mulligan bringing her A-game, the film falls short of its potential. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 21, 2015

Posted Oct 14, 2015
2.5/4 69% Crimson Peak (2015) "The setting is spectacular, but its ghosts underwhelm. Kudos to del Toro for bucking the minimalist trend in spooky movies, but his Grand Guignol spirits are so visible they begin to resemble fun-house monsters. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 14, 2015
2/4 32% Knock Knock (2015) ""Knock Knock" is not without its campy pleasures - it's just so unpleasant while it's doling them out. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 7, 2015
3/4 63% Trash (2015) "Comparisons to "Slumdog Millionaire" are inevitable, but the kinetic "Trash" has a rhythm all its own. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 7, 2015
2/4 38% Gravy (2015) ""Gravy" left a bad taste in my mouth, but for those with an eye for a potential cult film, it may be deliciously perfect. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 1, 2015
3/4 71% He Named Me Malala (2015) "The story of Malala Yousafzai is so inspirational, you couldn't make it up. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 30, 2015
3/4 90% Mississippi Grind (2015) "This low-budget indie has a unique ambiance and surprising depth, both in the performances of its two leads and the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 24, 2015
60% The Intern (2015) "Meyers' films have always been about basically decent people navigating life's various hurdles. Here, though, her characters have gone from "It's Complicated" to "It's Pretty Straightforward, Actually." " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 24, 2015
1.5/4 26% Captive (2015) "For a story whose appeal hinges on the saving grace of getting a "purpose-driven life," this one's got remarkably little of it. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 17, 2015
100% Key & Peele: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "So...goodbye, valets. Goodbye, substitute teacher. Goodbye, Hingle McCringleberry. We'll never forget you (or be able to say your name without giggling). " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 11, 2015
3/4 93% Coming Home (2015) "Elegantly touching ... " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 10, 2015
3/4 63% The Visit (2015) "Dunagan and McRobbie have a blast in their respective roles, alternating between everyday grandparent oddities and behavior that wouldn't be out of place at the Overlook Hotel. And overall, the young duo makes an affable pair of narrators. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 10, 2015
3/4 67% Break Point (2015) "Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk ... " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 2, 2015
2/4 25% Before We Go (2015) "Struggles to stay afloat on the considerable charm of its stars - Evans and Alice Eve - but is sunk by too much schmaltz (even for the Lower East Side). " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 2, 2015
3/4 72% When Animals Dream (2015) "Joining the indie monster-girl genre alongside "Ginger Snaps," "Teeth" and "Let the Right One In" is this melancholy Danish werewolf tale from debut director Jonas Alexander Arnby. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 26, 2015
3/4 74% 7 Chinese Brothers (2015) "Feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 26, 2015
2/4 43% American Ultra (2015) "What begins as a clever action-comedy a la "Pineapple Express" or Eisenberg's earlier "Zombieland" devolves into a standard shoot'em-up, with gore splashed around to distract us from the dearth of wit. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/4 64% Digging For Fire (2015) "Per Swanberg's signature style, the dialogue is largely improvised, the performances loose and funny. This may be his most star-studded cast yet, but the work is as intimate ("mumblecore" is so passé) as ever. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 19, 2015
82% Mistress America (2015) ""Mistress America" never falters in its case study of a complicated female friendship. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 12, 2015
2.5/4 93% The Gift (2015) "A dark and ultimately quite nasty psychological thriller from actor/writer/debut director Joel Edgerton, who manages to yank the carpet out from under his audience a couple of times. " ‐ New York Post
