Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) ""13 Hours" is so macho it practically has a Born to Lose tattoo on its arm. It's a military grade war machine, and it comes in the same way it goes out: with guns blazing. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 15, 2016
B 95% Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) "Anytime you get smart and accomplished filmmakers talking about film, theory and their respective styles, the results are rewarding. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 8, 2016
C- 10% The Forest (2016) "Zada can't manage to build tension or sustain a consistent air of dread. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 8, 2016
C- 9% Point Break (2015) "The first "Point Break" rode the big kahuna; this one's a wipeout. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Dec 25, 2015
B 31% Daddy's Home (2015) "Ferrell is a master at playing well intentioned but bumbling bozos, and he gives "Daddy's Home" a warm heart it wouldn't otherwise possess. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Dec 25, 2015
C- 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "A lumbering sea adventure that never finds its bearings, Ron Howard's "In the Heart of the Sea" is a whale of a dud. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Dec 11, 2015
B- 61% Legend (2015) "Hardy's performance - nay, performances - are so electrifying they cut through the confusion. Watch "Legend" for him and him alone. He's great, times two. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 25, 2015
B+ 74% Trumbo (2015) "A fun, highly watchable film. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 20, 2015
A 96% Spotlight (2015) "Invigorating moviemaking in every way imaginable, "Spotlight" is spot-on. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 20, 2015
C 73% Suffragette (2015) ""Suffragette" is a meaningful history lesson, but as a movie, it plays like a slog through history class. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 13, 2015
C 33% My All American (2015) "So white bread and scrubbed clean of any edges that it plays like a Saturday matinee at the cineplex in Pleasantville. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 13, 2015
B 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) ""The Peanuts Movie" takes the quaint humor of Charles Schulz' characters and blows it up to big screen proportions, and against the odds, it keeps Peanuts' genial sense of melancholy charm intact. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 6, 2015
B+ 69% Miss You Already (2015) "People say there aren't enough films made by women and about women, and that's true. Well this is one, and it's a damn good one. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 6, 2015
B+ 94% Room (2015) "Its action peaks early and the second half doesn't resonate as strongly as the first, but Larson and Tremblay radiate a warmth that transcends the screen. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Oct 30, 2015
A- 61% Truth (2015) "Ultimately, some of the answers in "Truth" are unsatisfying, but it asks important questions, which is one of journalism's chief responsibilities. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Oct 30, 2015
B 76% Goosebumps (2015) "Goosebumps isn't detached or ironic, nor does it pretend to be something it's not. It's a bonus for fans who pored over the books and it celebrates the fun side of things going bump in the night. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Oct 16, 2015
C 48% Freeheld (2015) "It's a stiff, overly calculated piece of awards bait that has all the elements of an Academy Awards triumph - except a beating heart. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Oct 9, 2015
A 94% Sicario (2015) "By the end, it packs a death stare so potent it will make you want to turn a blind eye to the shadowy brutality of its real-world horrors. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Oct 2, 2015

Posted Oct 2, 2015
B- 85% The Walk (2015) "As it comes together, the film becomes just as much a tribute to those massive Towers as it is to Petit. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Oct 2, 2015
C 40% We Are Your Friends (2015) ""We Are Your Friends" is a movie that explores the beat and pace of the dance floor, but its bpm flatlines. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Aug 28, 2015
C- 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "While it looks good - Ritchie has always been a slick visual stylist - it's ultimately as passive as an old rerun. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Aug 14, 2015
C+ 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "Director F. Gary Gray has too big a story to tell, enough for a TV miniseries (or a season's worth of Behind the Music episodes), and you can see him straining to cram everything in even as the film stretches to the two-and-a-half hour mark. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Aug 13, 2015
C 25% Dark Places (2015) "The mystery unspools slowly, with so many different twists and turns it's impossible to figure it out ahead of time. That's fine. By the time you get there, however, you probably won't care anymore. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Aug 7, 2015
C 93% The Gift (2015) "It touches on notions of trust, the male ego and forgiveness, but Edgerton doesn't overturn any new stones. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Aug 7, 2015
D- 26% Vacation (2015) "Helms' Griswold is a dangerous, moronic maniac, and the filmmakers' disdain for him rubs off on the audience. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jul 31, 2015

Posted Jul 28, 2015

B+ 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "Good show, lads. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jul 13, 2015
D+ 46% Ted 2 (2015) "For a movie that pretends to address issues of what it means to be human, "Ted 2" is soulless at its core, a pure product. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jun 26, 2015
D 33% Entourage (2015) "You may not have missed them, but Vinnie, E, Turtle and Drama are back, as empty and self-centered as ever, in the aimless, vapid Entourage movie. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jun 3, 2015
B 48% San Andreas (2015) ""San Andreas" never pretends to be any less subtle than the Rock's physique. It's a hulking mass of wanton destruction, and a stupid-fun carnival of carnage. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted May 29, 2015
B 93% The Hunting Ground (2015) "An important film to see for parents, students and anyone involved with academia. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Apr 24, 2015
C 55% The Age of Adaline (2015) "For a movie about a 106-year-old - albeit one trapped in the body of a 29-year-old - "The Age of Adaline" doesn't have a lot of wisdom. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Apr 24, 2015
B 94% Monkey Kingdom (2015) ""Monkey Kingdom" clocks in at a very digestible 82 minutes and doesn't overstay its welcome. It doesn't monkey around - that's left to the film's subjects, who are more than happy to oblige. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Apr 17, 2015
C 62% Unfriended (2015) "If it has a point about the way we treat people online, it's lost in an illogical ghost story that never bothers explaining itself. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Apr 17, 2015
B- 84% While We're Young (2015) "Baumbach plays with universal themes about the uncertainty of aging, the elusive nature of "cool" and the acceptance that comes with settling down ... " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Apr 10, 2015
B 79% Furious 7 (2015) "The real stars of these films are the bonkers action setpieces, and "Furious 7" achieves new high points in that department. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Apr 3, 2015
B+ 96% '71 (2015) "The film doesn't take sides, but shows how conflict stirs the pot of human emotions and how quickly things can get out of control. And it shows that in war, no one is right. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Mar 13, 2015
D- 32% Chappie (2015) ""Chappie" is all over the place, employing a cloying, "Patch Adams"-like sentimentality and abandoning logic at every turn. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Mar 6, 2015
B 56% Focus (2015) "Smith's natural charisma has been dulled by special effects bonanzas and/or a desire to play against type. In "Focus," he feels like himself again, and he reminds you why he became one of Hollywood's biggest stars in the first place. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Feb 27, 2015
C 35% Project Almanac (2015) "Lesson learned: time travel is difficult, but making it work on screen is even harder. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 30, 2015
D+ 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "Rather than being good-bad, "The Boy Next Door" is just plain bad. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 23, 2015
D 28% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "Hart is laser-focused and in-the-moment, and is consistently better than everything around him. He and Gad have the makings of a Will Smith and Kevin James in "Hitch" thing going on, but the script doesn't allow them to explore that dynamic. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 16, 2015
C 71% Interstellar (2014) ""Interstellar" is a grand undertaking, but in shooting for the stars, it loses its footing. It goes to infinity and beyond, when infinity would have been plenty. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 5, 2015
C+ 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) "Kids will leave the theater wanting their own Baymax, and who can blame them? It's the rest of the "Heroes" that don't measure up; the robot full of air is the most real thing in the movie. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Jan 5, 2015
B 86% Top Five (2014) "[Rock is] still not all the way there in "Top Five," his third effort as writer-director-star. But the movie has so many laughs it hardly matters. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Dec 12, 2014
B+ 98% The Babadook (2014) "Credit writer-director Jennifer Kent for lending her Australian indie a healthy dose of brains and subtlety, giving it a distinct advantage over most modern horror films. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Dec 12, 2014
B 82% Beyond the Lights (2014) ""Beyond the Lights" doesn't have much insight into the world of modern celebrity, but as a romance, its actors make it sing. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Nov 14, 2014
C 91% Dear White People (2014) "Simien draws strong performances from his talented cast and has a clean visual sensibility. But he's still sifting through the issues he raises and the movie suffers from his lack of conviction. " ‐ Detroit News
Posted Oct 24, 2014
C- 8% The Best Of Me (2014) "As a drama, it fails, but the camp value is high, making it more fun than your average would-be weeper. It's silly, but at least it's not a slog. " ‐ Detroit News
