Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C 84% 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

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

D 57% Blood Money (2017) Like a bag of money in the woods, you should leave this movie alone.‐ Detroit News

C+ 76% 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

B 93% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) A rich drama about parental ties, parental scars and getting on with life.‐ Detroit News

B+ 97% 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

C 43% 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

B+ 88% 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

B- 46% 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

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

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

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 67% 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 72% Gaga: Five Foot Two (2017) Five Foot Two offers an intimate look at Gaga behind the scenes and beyond the fame.‐ Detroit News

B 81% 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+ 50% 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 17% 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 83% 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 33% 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 69% 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 80% 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- 83% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
B 86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) "Ingrid Goes West" is a sharp, insightful modern day stalker fantasy, "Single White Female" through a Valencia Instagram filter.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
B 37% Leap! (2017) An animated fairytale that adheres to formula, but manages to stick its landing.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
B+ 89% Good Time (2017) Pattinson's performance is one of the year's finest and a revelation for anyone who has wanted to pigeonhole him as an actor.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
B+ 43% Bushwick (2017) "Bushwick" is an uncompromising film that makes the most of whatever budget constraints it was filmed under and has a from-the-ground-up realism that makes it almost uncomfortable to watch.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
B- 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) "The Hitman's Bodyguard" comes at you hard, but skates by on its charms. Kiss kiss, bang bang.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
D 79% Brigsby Bear (2017) "Brigsby Bear" is the kind of movie Kyle Mooney would make fun of on "Saturday Night Live."‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
B 96% Menashe (2017) "Menashe" is a little slice of life, delivered with a knowing sense of truth.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
A 99% Whose Streets? (2017) "Whose Streets?" doesn't pretend to solve any problems, only illuminate those that are happening everyday. It's a documentary that lives and breathes in the here and now.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
A 87% Wind River (2017) Bundle up: "Wind River" will blow you away.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
B 93% Logan Lucky (2017) A slick, smarter-than-your-average-bear heist comedy that moves and grooves with all the hallmarks of a Soderbergh caper. He's back, baby.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
B+ 95% Step (2017) Director Amanda Lipitz takes viewers home with the students and creates palpable drama around their quests to attend college following their senior year.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
C 69% Pilgrimage (2017) It's an odd mixture of Sunday church and comics that probably should have chosen one or the other.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
C 69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) The clumsy script has difficulty establishing the rules of what the doll and the daughter can do, so you're never really sure of what the characters are up against.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
C- 49% The Glass Castle (2017) It's not so much harrowing as it is repetitive, and the film gets stuck in a single gear it can't get itself out of.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
C 10% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) It's an unexpectedly radical, if otherwise rather rote animated sequel.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
D+ 35% Kidnap (2017) "Kidnap" was shot in 2014 and has been sitting on the shelf for two years. Frankly, it should have stayed missing.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
D- 0% Armed Response (2017) Snipes, for his part, looks bored off his rocker. He barely gets to move, and spends most of the movie looking like he's making to-do lists in his head.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
B 78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Gore is seen on the phone and in meetings with various figures, pushing toward a goal of saving the planet. "The Avengers" do it with intergalactic battles, Gore does it with an iPhone and a global travel itinerary.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
B+ 89% Lady Macbeth (2017) Pugh is a wrecking crew, communicating pure malevolence with a simple glance, but always keeping her composure. She may be evil, but she's first and foremost a lady.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
B 91% A Ghost Story (2017) "A Ghost Story" is an oddly haunting, wholly original trip.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
B- 76% Atomic Blonde (2017) The way it detonates off the screen makes the film live up to its name. It's atomic, and it's a blast.‐ Detroit News
