Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
D+ 0% Gotti (2018) Gotti tries too hard to cram too much information into a small space, and you come away learning almost nothing about the man, other than the filmmakers feel he was a pretty stand-up guy.‐ Detroit News

C 57% Tag (2018) A documentary about the real-life group of friends would have been more fun, and much easier to believe.‐ Detroit News

B 86% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) "Boom for Real" paints a stirring picture of a young artist on his way to the top.‐ Detroit News

B 44% The Yellow Birds (2018) "The Yellow Birds" is a difficult film that hammers home its point that war is a living hell that extends far beyond the battlefield.‐ Detroit News

A- 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" doesn't deify Rogers, but it makes a strong argument that as a neighbor, he was one of a kind.‐ Detroit News

C 70% The Seagull (2018) Mayer brings a labored hand to the proceedings and can't maximize his dynamite cast or the potential for salaciousness in Chekov's tangled web of characters.‐ Detroit News

B- 54% Superfly (2018) SuperFly isn't challenging or groundbreaking, but at least it lives up to its title. ‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
B+ 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) The Incredibles 2 makes its mark as a thrilling family adventure that can go pound-for-pound with any superhero movie, live action or otherwise.‐ Detroit News

B 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) It succeeds not as a gimmick or a gender-flip of an already established concept, but on its own as a worthy successor to the franchise. As a lark, it's a pretty good one.‐ Detroit News

D 59% Hotel Artemis (2018) "Hotel Artemis" wants to wow you with its sharp look and chic attitude, but all it will remind you is how much better off you'd be watching "John Wick."‐ Detroit News

A- 91% Hereditary (2018) [A] terrifying thriller that pins you to the back of your chair and leaves you paralyzed in fear.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
B 86% Upgrade (2018) Part "Black Mirror," part "Ex-Machina" and part "Hardcore Henry," "Upgrade" is a cuckoo science fiction horror pastiche that's smarter than it looks but disguises its ambition with low-grade, B-movie thrills.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
C 69% On Chesil Beach (2018) "On Chesil Beach" clumsily deals with the issues it addresses.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
B- 70% Adrift (2018) Shailene Woodley is fully committed as a sailor lost at sea in "Adrift," and she keeps what is otherwise a routine exercise in open water drama afloat.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
C- 46% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) Mitchell brings a lively visual sensibility to the screen, so at least it looks stellar. Everything else -- the film's tone, its message, its very purpose -- is caught between two different worlds.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
A- 96% First Reformed (2018) "First Reformed" takes some wild, unexpected and uncomfortable turns in its final act that will surely shock some, anger others and disturb just about everyone. For Schrader, it shows that he's still got it. Welcome back.‐ Detroit News

B+ 94% Beast (2018) "Beast" is a pitch black ride into the recesses of the human soul, and Buckley is the film's cold, dark heart.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
B- 85% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) There's a Hollywood version of this tale, but that's not the one co-writer and director Claire Denis presents. "Let the Sunshine In" works because it's real, relatable and true to the heart.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
A- 97% The Rider (2018) My my, what a ride.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
B 54% Book Club (2018) It's a comedy with heart and a message of friendship that goes beyond its simple, somewhat contrived premise.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
B 100% The Judge (2018) Al-Faqih is a role model, and Cohn makes a strong case for her.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
C 60% Anything (2018) An implausible romantic drama with good intentions that can't overcome its silly contrivances.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
C 89% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) How well can you really know a Pope, anyway? In "A Man of His Word," the answer is elusive.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
C+ No Score Yet American Dream: Detroit (2018) Occasionally it loses its focus; at one point, Bolton begins telling the story of his own career and his struggles to hit it big, which has as much purpose in a Detroit documentary as a sidebar on the Montreal Expos.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
C- 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Strip away the nostalgia, the familiar Star Wars backdrop and take it for what it's worth, and "Solo" is a bit of a clunker. ‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
B 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Comes blazing out of the shoot, but dips in its second hour, like a stretched-out piece of taffy. Still, there is a lot left to like here, and Reynolds and company crank out better, more outrageous laughs than most pure comedies.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
D 25% Breaking In (2018) "Breaking In" is broken.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
B 84% Disobedience (2018) A simmering drama that never quite reaches full boil.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
C 38% Life of the Party (2018) It's plenty nice, but comedy needs some teeth. And the only teeth "Life of the Party" has are in its over-excited smile.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
B+ 87% Tully (2018) Theron and Davis are magic together, with Davis projecting a warmth that rounds out Theron's character's harsher edges. They're a dynamite team.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
C 29% Overboard (2018) "Overboard" is strictly Derbez' show, and he's as subtle as a cartoon.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
B- 52% Bad Samaritan (2018) "Bad Samaritan" isn't trying to be steak, it's a burger and fries at a greasy diner. But sometimes that's what you crave, and "Bad Samaritan" hits the spot.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
B 54% Detective Chinatown 2 (2018) At two-plus hours, the joke goes on for way too long. But Detective Chinatown 2 is a case worth taking.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
B 96% 1945 (2017) A town wracked with guilt must come to terms with the horrors of its war atrocities in "1945," a somber drama set in the immediate aftermath of WWII.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
B+ 96% The Endless (2018) "The Endless" grows more mind-boggling as it goes on, but Benson and Moorhead keep the film grounded, making its twists and turns all the more compelling.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
B 29% Modern Life Is Rubbish (2018) "Modern Life is Rubbish" has a song in its heart, and it will put one in yours.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
C- 45% Backstabbing for Beginners (2018) It fails to make its subject matter interesting.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
C+ 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) It's too much. Too many characters, too much action, too much everything. It's a superhero surplus with too many heroes and not enough screen. It's Infinity overload.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
C- 33% I Feel Pretty (2018) There's definitely a movie to be made that takes on society's obsession with appearance in a sharp, focused manner, but "I Feel Pretty" isn't it.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
B+ 96% Foxtrot (2018) Like a self-inflicted wound, it leaves a mark.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
C- 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) With a little more ambition, "Super Troopers 2" could have been something greater. But it's more than happy to settle in for the cheap, lazy laugh.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
B+ 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) What it lacks in straightforward narrative structure, it makes up for in chest-level punch, and "You Were Never Really Here" lands like a blow to the sternum.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
A 92% Lean on Pete (2018) Throughout, Plummer is mesmerizing, his sunken eyes and gaunt face telling of the layers of hardships Charley is forced to endure.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
B 84% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) "Borg Vs. McEnroe" is a smart study of two athletes eclipsing each other in the prime of their careers.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
D 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) "Truth or Dare" is foolish to the point of incoherence. Don't get played.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
B 77% Beirut (2018) There are no extraneous pieces, everything fits together like a puzzle. And Hamm is that puzzle's key piece.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
B 52% Rampage (2018) This is the movie "Pacific Rim Uprising" wanted to be, this is the movie "Tomb Raider" should have been. Pure entertainment, "Rampage" is a smashing good time.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
C+ 92% Journey's End (2018) Its cerebral message boils down to a "war is hell" theme, a sentiment that's been conveyed more effectively in countless other works. It's a journey that mostly retraces steps.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
C 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Anderson's projects have always had a meticulous quality to them, but "Isle of Dogs" is exacting to the point of alienation. Someone needs a leash.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
B- 47% The Miracle Season (2018) The underlying story here is powerful enough that it sells itself. The best thing about "The Miracle Season" is it lets that story unfold and doesn't do anything to stand in its way.‐ Detroit News
