Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 58% Buena Vista Social Club: Adios (2017) "When you remember something," one of the group members says at one point, "it's because your spirit is in it." And there's plenty of spirit kicking around inside "Buena Vista Social Club: Adios."‐ Detroit News

C- 19% Baywatch (2017) What you've got is some basic R-rated humor, a few funnies, some tanned, toned bodies and a half-baked plot - nothing more, but maybe a little less. It's "Baywatch." What did you expect?‐ Detroit News

D 46% Everything, Everything (2017) "The Fault in Our Stars" meets "Room" in "Everything, Everything," a confounding psychological drama masquerading as a cutesy teen love story.‐ Detroit News

B+ 87% The Lovers (2017) "The Lovers" keeps folding, changing and evolving, but stays to its central theme, exploring two uncomfortably real characters who can't get out of the way of each other or themselves.‐ Detroit News

C+ 17% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul" is the common type of road trip movie, the one where everything that can go wrong does go wrong.‐ Detroit News

C- 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) The first "Alien" had better special effects. Watch it instead.‐ Detroit News

B+ 63% Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2017) Like Coltrane's music, the sheer brilliance of his musicianship cuts through the clutter.‐ Detroit News

B 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Ritchie, using a rollicking soundtrack and wild visual flourishes, is off his rocker here, enough so that he makes a familiar, stale tale seem fresh.‐ Detroit News

B+ 68% The Wall (2017) This is a smart, gritty, quietly chaotic war movie which resonates far beyond its purposely small scale.‐ Detroit News

C 37% Snatched (2017) Hawn has more to offer than this, and Schumer is the right partner to bring it out of her. But "Snatched" isn't the right vehicle for them.‐ Detroit News

C 84% Risk (2017) There's plenty of access to Assange, but not much insight to his person. Who is he? Why does he believe so deeply in his convictions?‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
C+ 87% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) "Norman" is a small character study of a classic wannabe - think "The King of Comedy," set in the world of Jewish politics - and when it gets bogged down in international intrigue it loses its way.‐ Detroit News

C 81% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) There's a thin line between just enough and too much, and "Guardians Vol. 2" trips over that line and never gets back up.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
B+ 97% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) "Graduation" has a lot on its mind, but is told in such an intimate way it's like eavesdropping on a conversation: the closer you listen, the more you'll hear.‐ Detroit News

B+ 89% 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 85% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
D 67% Free Fire (2017) An exhausting, masturbatory, self-indulgent Tarantino facsimile.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
C 48% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
C 73% 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 26% Unforgettable (2017) The erotic thriller canon is littered with similar stories, and "Unforgettable" doesn't attempt to reinvent the wheel.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
B+ 99% Cameraperson (2016) A life behind the lens is examined in "Cameraperson," a fascinating, purposely disjointed documentary from director Kirsten Johnson.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
C 66% Tommy's Honour (2017) As biopics go, it's a bogey.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
B+ 79% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
B- 46% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
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- 31% 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- 61% 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+ 90% 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 52% 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+ 42% 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- 79% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
B+ 72% 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+ 34% 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- 76% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
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- 24% 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 21% 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 95% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) Some films are a speeding train. This one is a hammock on a Saturday afternoon.‐ Detroit News
