Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 85% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) For Lynch - who hasn't made a feature since 2006's "Inland Empire" - the look back is clearly edifying, as you can feel him reflecting upon his journey in between long drags on his cigarettes.‐ Detroit News

B 82% Disneynature Born In China (2017) "Born in China" won't teach you everything there is to know about pandas, snow leopards or snub-nosed monkeys, and its storylines feel manipulated by the Disney machine. But darned if it doesn't make you say "aww."‐ Detroit News

D 67% Free Fire (2017) An exhausting, masturbatory, self-indulgent Tarantino facsimile.‐ Detroit News

B 95% I Called Him Morgan (2017) "I Called Him Morgan" works as a jazz documentary as well as a bizarre true crime tale about a mysterious crime of passion. All these years later, many questions remain.‐ Detroit News

C 46% The Promise (2017) "The Promise" should have been priority viewing, but it's all over the place, taking on the Armenian Genocide, journalism ethics, foreign diplomacy and a host of other weighty topics.‐ Detroit News

B 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) It's a bold journey and it's a little bonkers, but like Fawcett, "The Lost City of Z" is admirable in its resilience.‐ Detroit News

C 74% The Void (2017) "The Void" gets louder, grosser and more stupid the further it progresses, becoming an endurance test in its final sequences.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
C 25% Unforgettable (2017) The erotic thriller canon is littered with similar stories, and "Unforgettable" doesn't attempt to reinvent the wheel.‐ Detroit News

B+ 99% Cameraperson (2016) A life behind the lens is examined in "Cameraperson," a fascinating, purposely disjointed documentary from director Kirsten Johnson.‐ Detroit News

C 67% Tommy's Honour (2017) As biopics go, it's a bogey.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
B+ 78% Colossal (2017) "Colossal" is a challenge, no doubt, but writer-director Nacho Vigalondo pulls it off with a visionary flourish.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
B 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) If you're not interested in seeing a fleet of cars get chased across a frozen lake by a Russian submarine, that's between you and your maker. As long as you are, [Fate] is a wildly entertaining thrill ride that never lets its foot off the gas.‐ Detroit News

B- 45% Going in Style (2017) There are weightier movies with more moral complexity, but this is just a hug from grandpa. And who couldn't use more of those?‐ Detroit News

D+ 16% Queen of the Desert (2017) Despite Kidman's best efforts, almost nothing clicks on an emotional level, and the movie passes as slowly as sand through an hourglass.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
D- 30% The Assignment (2017) "The Assignment" is an embarrassment all around, a murky, regrettable piece of gutter cinema. Next year's Razzie Awards race starts here.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
C 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) You want to forgive it just because it looks so good. And you can, to a point. But like those holographic giants towering above the city, it's mostly just digital noise, visually impressive, but soulless.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
B 73% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) "The Blackcoat's Daughter" is a self-contained tale of evil that knows exactly what it's doing.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
B- 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) This is a handsomely shot, weighty story, and Chastain is a knockout in the lead.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
B+ 91% Raw (2017) Ducournau, 33, is a promising, smart filmmaker with a lot to say, and "Raw" is quite a medium to present her ideas.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
C 53% The Boss Baby (2017) It's not easy to make an entire movie around a two-word premise, and "Boss Baby" shows why.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
D 16% CHIPS (2017) It already feels like a rerun.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
B 70% American Anarchist (2017) "American Anarchist" is an interesting look at accountability on several different levels.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
C 68% Life (2017) Espinosa thinks he's making "Gravity," not a SyFy movie with an unusually good cast. In space, no one can hear you sigh with resignation.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
B+ 40% Wilson (2017) Like Wilson himself, the movie is a bit of a throwback, out-of-step with the times, but whimsical in its execution.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
A- 80% Personal Shopper (2017) "Personal Shopper" is tough to pin down, but it's a strange and stunning ride - haunting without being hokey, with surprises around every turn.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
B+ 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) If there's going to be a Trainspotting sequel, T2 Trainspotting is the best case scenario. It rewards a cult-like obsession with the first film, incorporating copious visual callbacks to Trainspotting and nuggets of the original's soundtrack into its DNA.‐ Detroit News

B+ 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) Broadbent, so often a supporting player, is a treat in the lead role, soft and mournful, but with a youthful gleam in his eye.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
D+ 33% The Last Word (2017) Even when surrounded by junk, the 83-year-old MacLaine still has plenty of pep. She's a treasure, but "The Last Word" doesn't do her or her legacy justice.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
B 97% Kedi (2017) "Kedi" is the cat's meow. Literally.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
B+ 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) It's a tale as old as time, but in its latest imagining it still feels fresh.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
B- 77% Kong: Skull Island (2017) A fun if muddled monster movie that gets its best jolts from the sheer size of its beasts.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
B 92% Logan (2017) Jackman's performance is Clint Eastwood-esque, and the lines in Jackman's face tell the story of his worn character; he plays Wolverine as a man at the end of his line, adding at least a decade to his 48 years.‐ Detroit News

B 66% Before I Fall (2017) While it's far from subtle getting there, "Before I Fall" sticks its landing in its final moments. And what could have been a forgettable teen drama leaves a lasting impression.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
C- 22% Table 19 (2017) "Table 19" is like being stuck at the worst table at a bad wedding.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
C 19% The Shack (2017) "The Shack" is a grief-packed journey through loss, bargaining and acceptance that feels like an overly long church sermon.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
B 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) Some films are a speeding train. This one is a hammock on a Saturday afternoon.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
C+ 92% Toni Erdmann (2016) "Toni Erdmann" has plenty to say about parenting, ambition, feminism and modern happiness, but not enough to justify its absurdly longwinded running time.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
C 83% A United Kingdom (2017) Noble but stuffy, "A United Kingdom's" good intentions suffer from its dull, predictable beats.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
B+ 99% Get Out (2017) Writer-director Jordan Peele has fashioned a smart, scathing commentary ... as a base for his allegory on the horror of race in America.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
D+ 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) At 90 minutes it could have been an eerie, tricky, well-crafted thriller. At two hours its wheels start to fall off. And then it continues to limp along for another 30 minutes, after which you wonder what the point of it all was in the first place.‐ Detroit News

F 27% Fist Fight (2017) "Fist Fight" is so terminally unpleasant that it feels like the audience is the one catching a beating. In this fight, there are only losers.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
C 35% The Great Wall (2017) It's meant to play to as broad an audience as possible, so everything about it is spread thin, and its attempts at humor warrant light chuckles at best.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
B+ 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) It's the Bat-spoof we didn't know we needed and it gives Batman a chance to loosen up.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
D+ 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) There continues to be no chemistry between department store mannequins Steele and Grey, and the world director James Foley builds around them is flat and unrecognizable as real life.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
C 95% Paterson (2016) It's not exactly riveting material, and even Jim Jarmusch - the veteran writer-director who traffics in the day-to-day contemplation of human existence - struggles to make "Paterson" pop.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
B+ 83% Julieta (2016) Suárez gives a searing performance in the lead role, her grief overwhelming her to the point where she physically wears it on her body.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
A- 91% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) In the wrong hands, this type of thing could be a drag, but "John Wick 2" is one of the most fun action pictures in recent memory.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
B+ 99% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) It is an urgent, gut-wrenching film that doesn't sugarcoat the truth. America's race problem is all of our problem, it argues, and will not change until all of us step up and take responsibility for our role in it.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
C- 25% The Comedian (2017) There's a big problem at the center of "The Comedian": It's not funny. At all.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
D+ 32% A Dog's Purpose (2017) "A Dog's Purpose" finds itself in a peculiar spot, pandering to dog lovers, but still not giving them what they want.‐ Detroit News
