Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 100% Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton (2017) Kaufman was a button-pusher, he sought to get a rise out of people and questioned where performance ended and real life began. "Jim & Andy" carries on that spirit. Kaufman would be proud.‐ Detroit News

A 100% Lady Bird (2017) "Lady Bird" is a deeply accomplished debut, as much a love letter to Gerwig's hometown as it is to awkward adolescence. It flies.‐ Detroit News

B+ 83% Wonder (2017) "Wonder" could easily be played for tears or easy sentimentality, but Chbosky finds the reality of the situation much more wondrous. You will, too.‐ Detroit News

A 94% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is a powder keg of rage and raw emotion that deftly dances on the line between dark comedy and wrenching drama.‐ Detroit News

C- 39% Justice League (2017) At least at two hours -- brief by modern superhero standards -- Justice League doesn't overstay its welcome. But like most all-star games, it's better as fantasy than it is reality. Level your expectations to the league minimum.‐ Detroit News

C 72% Wonderstruck (2017) Aims for whimsical, but lands well short of its goal.‐ Detroit News

B 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) A lot of remakes of Hollywood classics trip over themselves to appeal to modern day crowds, but Branagh is a classicist at heart. In front of and behind the camera, he makes this journey a throwback ride worth taking. All aboard.‐ Detroit News

A 81% Mayhem (2017) "Mayhem" is a frantic, blood-splattered, rock 'n' roll action-horror-comedy that plays like a killer cross between "Crank" and "Office Space."‐ Detroit News

C- 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) "Ragnarok" is supposed to play for laughs, but it feels like the joke is on the audience.‐ Detroit News

D- 28% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) The holiday season has barely started and already we have our first lump of coal.‐ Detroit News

C+ 77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) "Thank You for Your Service" tells an important story but is pedestrian in its telling. Vets deserve a better thank you.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
B+ 78% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Lanthimos' style is sure to infuriate some viewers, but that's the point. Good or bad, he wants you to feel something, and with "Sacred Deer," oh boy, he hits his mark.‐ Detroit News

C- 29% All I See Is You (2017) Somewhere in this interestingly shot mystery there's an exploration of identity, masculinity and marital discord, but those themes are obscured by the sublime, strange Blake Liveliness of it all.‐ Detroit News

C 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Curtis drags the story through all the routine period motions, where everybody looks and talks and dresses like they're in a stately prestige film.‐ Detroit News

D 26% Suburbicon (2017) "Suburbicon" wants to say something about us, today, but it can't get the words right. It can't even get the language right. It's as marble-mouthed as its title.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
B 69% Kill Me Please (Mate-me por favor) (2017) "Kill Me Please" is a bold, vivid exploration of adolescence and budding sexuality, set against a backdrop of looming fear and dread.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
B- 32% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) Are there any Mark Felts left, and when will they stand up? "Mark Felt" is asking that question just as much as it's honoring its subject, but it's not telling anyone to hold their breath.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
C+ 66% Breathe (2017) Garfield and Foy do standout jobs of bringing honesty and realism to their roles, but "Breathe" often suffers from sucking in too much air.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
D- 8% The Snowman (2017) Playground snowball fights have more suspense and intrigue than "The Snowman," the most puzzlingly bad movie of the year.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
A+ 95% The Florida Project (2017) It's one of the most effective, honest portraits of childhood you'll ever see, and a touching, poignant snapshot of American life in 2017.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
B 89% Only the Brave (2017) Director Joseph Kosinski puts the brotherhood of the unit front and center, emphasizing the bonds forged over sweat and soot. He directs with a sense of duty to honor the crew, and he does the job.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
C 83% Marshall (2017) You have to think there are better ways to tell the story of Marshall, his life and his climb to the land's highest court, but those details are left to post-script notes.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
C 86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) It rather clumsily explores the kinky roots of the female superhero and the thinly veiled bondage overtones at her story's core.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
D 57% Blood Money (2017) Like a bag of money in the woods, you should leave this movie alone.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
C+ 80% Loving Vincent (2017) It relies on forced exposition to push the story forward and often recalls bad dinner theater, and is certainly the least interesting way to tell van Gogh's tale.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
B 93% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) A rich drama about parental ties, parental scars and getting on with life.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
B+ 98% Lucky (2017) More than anything, it's a tribute to Stanton, who wore each of his 91 years in the deep crevasses on his long face, in his weathered voice and on his frail frame.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
C 42% The Mountain Between Us (2017) There's a bigger obstruction here than the mountain between the characters: it's the story that can't get out of the way of itself.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
B+ 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) It takes on the themes and universe set forth in the original and builds on them, and manages to live up to the massive expectations that greet it. This is no replicant, it's the real deal.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
B- 45% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) "My Little Pony: The Movie" won't disrupt the Best Animated Feature category at next year's Oscars (despite any potential Brony protests), but for a message of friendship, you can do a lot worse.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
C 19% Woodshock (2017) Kate and Laura Mulleavy ... give everything the hazy feel of a nearly forgotten dream. They have a knack for creating and sustaining a heavy mood, but that mood is overburdened by the questions that surround the narrative.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
B+ 87% American Made (2017) The story at times feels too wild, too crazy to be true, but that's what makes it worth telling. "American Made" is a real whopper.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
A- 84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Slick and fun, "Battle of the Sexes" is an ace.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
B 65% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Whether "Victoria & Abdul" holds up to historical scrutiny is up for debate - the prologue says the film is "based on true events... mostly" - but Dench, as always, is the real deal.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
C+ No Score Yet 44 Pages (2017) "44 Pages" winds up feeling like an infomercial for "Highlights," something new employees would watch on their first day at the office.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
B 75% Gaga: Five Foot Two (2017) Five Foot Two offers an intimate look at Gaga behind the scenes and beyond the fame.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
B 82% Brad's Status (2017) Stiller is in prime form here, smart and self-pitying in a way that's quintessentially his own.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
B+ 96% Stronger (2017) "Stronger" is tough and hard and ultimately resilient, just like the story it's telling.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
D+ 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Overstuffed, over-busy and overlong, "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is an exhausting, patience-trying assault that doesn't know when to say when.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
D 15% Friend Request (2017) "Friend Request" is less insightful than a tossed off status update. Request denied.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
B 82% Beach Rats (2017) Hittman paints with a delicate brush, and gets a strong performance out of newcomer Dickinson, who gives Frankie a soft soul beneath his chiseled physique.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
C 34% American Assassin (2017) "American Assassin" is bogged down by its contrived, empty-headed script (credited to four screenwriters and less than the sum of its parts) and its macho chest beating.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
B 68% mother! (2017) It's a tough nut to crack, but it's a trip to trying to break it open. Exclamation point earned.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
B 85% It (2017) While the killer clown Pennywise is the center of the film's marketing campaign, the image on the film's poster, it's the kids in this surprisingly robust adaptation of Stephen King's novel who give "It" its center.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
B 82% The Oath (2016) Kormakur sets an icy tone from the beginning and sticks to it as his tense morality tale plays out.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
C 85% The Trip to Spain (2017) Coogan and Brydon ... begin to grate, and come off as obnoxious, both to themselves and to the patrons around them, who hopefully got comped for their meals.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
B- 76% Crown Heights (2017) "Crown Heights" plows forward, steely in its resolve, and forgoes the emotional fireworks in favor of subdued, straightforward storytelling.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
B- 82% Patti Cake$ (2017) Take "8 Mile" and cross it with "Hustle & Flow" and add a little bit of "Precious" and you have "Patti Cake$," a hip-hop underdog story about finding the rhythm by following your own beat.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
C- 34% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) If this is New York's "Only Living Boy," the city's in more trouble than its characters are even aware.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
B- 100% Sidemen: Long Road to Glory (2017) The subjects are worthy of praise and "Sidemen" gives them their shine. As Perkins says when picking up his first Grammy at age 97, "better late than never."‐ Detroit News
