T-Meter Title | Year
92% Two Lottery Tickets (2021) Two Lottery Tickets is a funny enough premise with a cast that knows how to play to one another's strengths. - Film Inquiry EDIT

98% Drunk Bus (2021) Unconventional, funny, and poignant from start to finish, Drunk Bus feels like a labor of love by those who created it. A solid recommendation. - Film Inquiry EDIT

95% Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street (2021) To say I recommend this documentary is a blatant understatement. Being able to pull back the curtain on a show which shaped so many lives over the years, was both entertaining and emotionally powerful. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% 4x4 (2019) Rather than going for the easy black and white notion of good and evil, Cohn and Gastón dissect their characters with poignant thoughtfulness and care much needed in a time when tensions are heightened. - Film Inquiry EDIT

91% White Lie (2019) Suffice it to say, this is not a terrible film and could have held strong to its core plot if it had a few more twists and turns. Instead, White Lie comes off as an underbaked drama with a paper-thin conclusion. - Film Inquiry EDIT

45% Fatman (2020) Fatman is an exhausting, vile, depressingly boring movie which might have been kinda funny as a skit or short. - Film Inquiry EDIT

38% Chick Fight (2020) Is Chick Fight terrible? Not entirely. Wrongheaded is more like it. Chick Fight never takes advantage of the premise it was trying to flesh out. - Film Inquiry EDIT

29% Antebellum (2020) Antebellum, for all it promises in its slick trailers and eye-catching imagery, fails on several levels to ever come full circle in its intent while only worrying about a failed, yet intriguing, twist ending that blindly rushes toward the finish. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet We Bare Bears: The Movie (2020) This film is a grizzly-sized recommend, full of eye-catching animation, laughs, adventure, and most of all, meaning. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2020
83% Max Reload and the Nether Blasters (2020) A mild recommendation is given for tolerant fans of B-movies and gamers, but don't expect to play Max Reload more than once. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2020
96% Good Manners (As Boas Maneiras) (2018) All and all, Good Manners is a flawed narrative with a good heart and powerful message at its core. Good, not great, though the effort put forth by the creatives shows. - Film Inquiry EDIT

32% The Sunlit Night (2019) David Wnendt crafts a tale with a strange sense of quiet tranquility blended with underlying dismay without being cloying to its subject matter. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2020
No Score Yet Boris and the Bomb (2020) Boris And The Bomb not only tries to be bigger than the sum of its parts but also seems to have a lot of heart put into it. Unfortunately, the film never reaches the heights envisioned by its creators. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted May 27, 2020
94% Faith Based (2020) All and all, the film tries to please everyone while never quite reaching the level of comedy it sets out to achieve. Faith Based isn't the funniest film you'll sit through this year, though it might get you through a lazy Sunday with a few laughs. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted May 12, 2020
No Score Yet Tombstone-Rashomon (2016) There is almost nothing to enjoy in this glorified cosplay caught on film. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2020
50% The Sonata (2020) The Sonata, albeit visually interesting, mostly due to its shooting location, does little to keep the audiences' attention. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2020
No Score Yet I Am Fear (2020) I Am Fear does well to tell a tale so visceral in both the literal and figurative sense, you'll begin to question which is more horrific - the supernatural creatures hidden in the shadows or the atrocities done by mere men in plain sight. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2020
No Score Yet What Love Looks Like (2020) What Love Looks Like brings very little to the table in terms of originality or likeability. You've seen it all before, done better, and in more captivating ways and with better acting. - Film Inquiry EDIT

96% John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (2019) John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch is a definite recommend for a pretty wide audience. Perhaps not for those still watching children's programming but teens to adults will surely be entertained. - Film Inquiry EDIT

79% I See You (2019) From clichéd plot devices to the somber score, what starts off feeling amateurish and tiresome becomes a crafty nailbiter. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
83% Daniel Isn't Real (2019) I'd like to reiterate my enjoyment of the beginning and middle parts. The tone, look and disturbing special effects had me enthralled. I would mildly recommend Daniel Isn't Real if only to see how others might view it differently. - Film Inquiry EDIT

50% Badland (2019) Given a few more passes on the script, take out the chapter brakes and maybe punch up the action, Badland could have been a modern-day cowboy flick worth the near two hour run time. - Film Inquiry EDIT

67% Red Letter Day (2019) Even in its runtime, the movie disappoints by the sheer laziness of never pushing the screenplay to a possibly climactic finale. Instead, we get weak family non-drama and a series of uninteresting horror moments relying way more on blood than guts. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2019
53% Bloodline (2019) I would not recommend this to the everyday filmgoer mostly in part to the heavy dollop of graphic imagery. But if you're looking for a slow simmer with an odd aftertaste, by all means, watch Bloodline. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
No Score Yet Killer Sofa (2019) My advice, watch the trailer and only the trailer. The end result is infinitely more entertaining than the actual one. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
44% Supervized (2019) Supervized is a sophomoric comedy which never takes advantage of its own originality. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Loners (2019) Touted as a political satire, this comically underwritten, narratively overwritten plot means well though never proves a point. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2019
86% Tater Tot & Patton (2019) With Tater Tot & Patton we are given an odd, slow burn with endearing performances and a lesson to be learned. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2019
83% Mosul (2019) Mosul thrusts the audience into its world with unwavering relentlessness while allowing ample time to reflect. Gritty, powerful and honest, the film begs to be experienced, discussed, and remembered. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted May 13, 2019
No Score Yet The 27 Club (2019) Bottom line, this was a cheaply made streaming title with little to no thought put into it. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted May 10, 2019
42% William (2019) With hopes held high, I truly wanted to enjoy William as a high concept drama. But no, try as I might, I never connected with this film. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet Trading Paint (2019) Unless you are a dyed in the wool racing buff or a Travolta completest, there is little reason to watch Trading Paint. - Film Inquiry EDIT

86% The Golem (2019) If paced more efficiently, this could have definitely satisfied a broader audience, but instead, we are left with lackluster horror mixed with a decent drama. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
53% The Last Laugh (2019) The Last Laugh tries its best to tell a sweet tale about growing old with dignity and never giving up on your true self. The film is a mild recommendation for the right audience. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
40% The Harrowing (2018) The Harrowing promises such supernatural offerings only to deliver a bland, soft-focus thriller with none of the scares. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
75% The Long Dumb Road (2018) Fidell and co-writer Carson Mell accomplished a feat rarely seen, a believable wacky comedy. Relatable to a multi-generational audience, the movie has a takeaway for everyone. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
76% Monster Party (2018) Never boring, the movie does what it set out to do with the final product being a quick gory horror romp with a modern sensibility. Not to be too puny, Monster Party is a bloody good time and a big recommend for a modern-day slasher flick. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
71% Killer Kate! (2018) Slow, silly and toneless sum up the final product, though with some sharpening and polish Feld could hit his stride as a storyteller and I hope he does. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
14% Vigilante Diaries (2016) Vigilante Diaries is overly long, annoyingly unthreatening baddies and a script that had more plots than the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe combined. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
31% Welcome To Happiness (2016) Oliver Thomson spins a yarn not seen enough in cinema these days. Straying away from the norm, he leaves the audience captivated and questioning well into the film's intriguing, yet logically simple conclusion. - Film Inquiry EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
53% One More Time (When I Live My Life Over Again) (2016) A family drama with a clever setup, One More Time, although not a ground-breaking film, is charming throughout. A top-notch cast, strong writing and competent filmmaking make for a pleasurable 98 minutes of indie storytelling. - Film Inquiry EDIT
