Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 98% Hell or High Water (2016) The cast is uniformly magnificent, but it's Pine who steals the movie.‐ Detroit News

C 60% War Dogs (2016) It's watchable popcorn entertainment and it goes down easy, but material like this should be challenging and should at least ask a few prodding questions.‐ Detroit News

B+ 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) In real life, Jenkins became famous for her lack of talent. But "Florence Foster Jenkins" honors her spirit, which is more powerful than any notes on the musical scale.‐ Detroit News

B 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) Rather than a big, special effects-driven blockbuster, this remake of the 1977 Disney musical has the homespun feel of a children's book come-to-life.‐ Detroit News

C+ 83% Sausage Party (2016) "Sausage Party" is smarter than it looks at the same time as it is overly taken with its juvenile humor.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2016
C 66% Anthropoid (2016) A post-script details the aftermath of the movie's action, which seems to underscore the point that war is hell. To that point, so is "Anthropoid."‐ Detroit News

B- 79% Joshy (2016) "Joshy" is like a weekend with random friends: fun and familiar, but rarely any deeper than the personalities involved. Don't look for more and you'll be fine.‐ Detroit News

B+ 96% Gleason (2016) However many Kleenex you think you should bring, double it.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2016
C+ 82% Indignation (2016) Despite its pluses, "Indignation" often plays like a heavy handed after-school special. It's not so much indignant as it is tedious.‐ Detroit News

A- 99% Don't Think Twice (2016) Don't think twice, just see it.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2016
C 26% Five Nights in Maine (2016) Too much goes unsaid and too many issues are unresolved. The scenery is nice, but "Five Nights in Maine" just isn't worth the trip.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2016
C- 26% Suicide Squad (2016) Sometimes it's good to be bad. In Suicide Squad's case, bad is just plain bad. It gives villainy a bad name.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2016
B 66% Nerve (2016) "Nerve" is sharp looking and delivers real jolts, even if the climax pushes things a bit far and wraps up too easily. Or maybe it's an accurate look at what'll happen when "Nerve" becomes real?‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
B+ 59% Bad Moms (2016) Hahn hijacks the film and makes it her showcase. She's rude and crude in a physical, full-body performance, and half her lines seem improvised, because she spits them out like a spray of machine gun bullets.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
B 70% CafĂ© Society (2016) If it doesn't reach the heights of Woody's best - 2013's "Blue Jasmine" was his last great film - it still has several rich touches, including a luminous performance by Kristen Stewart.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
B- 56% Jason Bourne (2016) Greengrass stages three breathless marquee action sequences, including a smash-em-up car chase down the Las Vegas Strip that would make even the "Fast and Furious" gang stop and gawk.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
C- 34% Equals (2016) As stiff and rigid as two equals signs, "Equals" is a bland sci-fi romance that is as dull as its scrubbed-clean visual aesthetic.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2016
C 76% Lights Out (2016) The scares are cheap, but they're frequently effective, the same way that if you're hungry junk food might fill you up. It doesn't mean you'll feel good about it later.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2016
B- 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) "Collision Course" won't alter the trajectory of history, but as an entertaining diversion, it does its job.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2016
B 83% Captain Fantastic (2016) Ross delivers a warm, humorous, enlightening family drama marked by strong performances ...‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2016
C+ 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Lin's flashy sense of stylized grit is lost in a sea of sci-fi noise as "Beyond" becomes a monotonous blur of space babble and battles.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2016
A- 91% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) Packed with wit and warmth, "Microbe and Gasoline" is a minor key showstopper. It's proof you don't always need a huge fireworks display, sometimes a bottle rocket and a few sparklers will do the trick.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2016
C 73% Ghostbusters (2016) It sits in the middle, wanting to blaze a new trail but haunted by the ghosts of its past.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2016
D 77% Wiener-Dog (2016) Even Gerwig, who could light up a darkened cavern simply with her walk, is wasted under Solondz' mirthless direction. She shuffles along with her shoulders slumped, like all characters in Solondz' movies.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2016
B 91% A Monster With A Thousand Heads (Un Monstruo de Mil Cabezas) (2016) A scathing indictment of bureaucracy and corporate greed wrapped up in the guise of a frenzied thriller, "A Monster with a Thousand Heads" will be too close for comfort for some.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2016
C 35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) The movie goes for a bawdy, "outrageous" vibe and big laughs, which it lands less than half the time.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2016
C 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) The film is as loud and busy as expected from modern cartoons. But there's nothing deeper at play, no clever animal insights, and nothing that makes good on that great title.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2016
C 71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) The movie grossly overestimates the audience's sympathy for a murderous thug and its interest in the morality of international banking.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2016
C 69% Swiss Army Man (2016) "Swiss Army Man" leaves an impression, but can't complete its job. Like Manny, it's full of hot air.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2016
C- 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) Mostly it's more of the same from this stalled series. It's time someone purges "The Purge."‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2016
B+ 95% Tickled (2016) The film is an investigative thriller that unravels the deep web of lies, threats and deceit that festers in the dark corners of the internet, and shows how online behavior can have damaging, real-world implications.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2016
B- 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "The Legend of Tarzan" is no jungle boogie, but it's a decent swing.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2016
B- 75% The BFG (2016) As a character, the BFG is a wondrous creation, and Rylance does a magnificent job bringing him to life.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2016
B 78% The Phenom (2016) Instead of big fireworks, "The Phenom" offers low-key character moments. It's a small film with a lot of insight.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
B 57% The Neon Demon (2016) There's no denying the beauty of Refn's images, even if his puerile instincts are at odds with his obvious pretensions. Those who cry it's shallow and ugly won't be wrong; others will love it for those very reasons.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
B- 78% The Shallows (2016) For what it is, "The Shallows" works.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
C 47% Free State of Jones (2016) Call it a civil bore.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
A- 89% Dheepan (2016) The film simmers and builds until it boils over in an explosive climax. And it shows how far people will go just to be able to cling to some semblance of hope.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2016
B- 50% Genius (2016) "Genius" deals with the creative ego, its trappings and the need everyone has for an editor.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2016
B 69% Central Intelligence (2016) Johnson brings the funny. Underneath all that muscle, a comedy star is wrestling to get out, and he's finally emerged.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2016
C+ 17% Careful What You Wish For (2016) There's a rhythm to these things, and screenwriter Chris Frisina has certainly watched his share of late-night cable TV thrillers.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2016
B+ 97% Dark Horse (2016) It's a galloping victory.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2016
B+ 85% Maggie's Plan (2016) "Maggie's Plan" is Gerwig's show, and once again she proves to be one of the screen's most engaging presences.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2016
D 28% Warcraft (2016) Sometimes video games are best left as video games.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2016
C 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) As the illusions mount, they don't amount to much, leading up to a big finale that piles on the improbabilities and quietly sweeps them under the rug.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2016
B 97% Weiner (2016) "Weiner" is a thorough examination of modern politics, the 24-hour news cycle and the grind of the campaign trail.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2016
B- 38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) "Out of the Shadows" is by no means a really good pizza, but if you liked the last film, it's worth a slice.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2016
B+ 58% Me Before You (2016) Clarke's sparkle is similar to when Julia Roberts graced the screen in "Pretty Woman." Get used to her, she'll be around for awhile.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2016
C+ 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) As a satire of modern pop stardom, "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping" could use a little more pop.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2016
B 98% Love & Friendship (2016) Stillman doesn't upend the Austen formula, he burrows into it and embraces all its trappings. The snappy dialogue, meanwhile, rewards a finely tuned ear and will thrill all lovers of language.‐ Detroit News
