T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 32% Tom & Jerry (2020) Very young kids might find some enjoyment in the brightly hued, fast-paced mania of it all, but those with any real affection for the pair of violently opposed animals will leave unimpressed. - Guardian EDIT

1/5 50% A Week Away (2021) [A] ludicrous, grating ploy for tacitly conservative audiences. - Guardian EDIT

4/5 98% Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry (2021) Its strongest element, aside from Eilish herself, is the generosity and empathy afforded to the experience of fandom. - Guardian EDIT

3/5 78% To All The Boys: Always And Forever (2021) The final serving of this three-part confection rarely strays from enjoyable, even if it doesn't match the seductive sweetness of the first bite. - Guardian EDIT

4/5 78% The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021) The Map of Tiny Perfect Things holds a contained, idealized world - a trove of romcom enjoyment and small treasures I had no problem looping through. - Guardian EDIT

3/5 89% Pleasure (2021) A far more interesting, gripping and refreshing film than its subject matter might suggest. - Guardian EDIT

2/5 56% Mayday (2021) It's a shame that ambitious vision doesn't extend to its characters - where they're from, who and what they love, the real experiences that inform their resiliency. - Guardian EDIT

2/5 27% Wild Mountain Thyme (2020) [I]t's certainly watchable, even pleasant - if you can get past whatever nonsense the characters are saying. - Guardian EDIT

2/5 70% Godmothered (2020) Where Godmothered should coast, it stumbles - swerving between unwieldy earnestness to something edgier and settling on something duller than it should be. - Guardian EDIT

1/5 67% The Glorias (2020) Another film might have mined Steinem's remarkable life for its complications and contradictions, but The Glorias settles for slapdash iconography... - Guardian EDIT

2/5 57% The Hunt (2020) In making the worst stereotypes of America's political poles as extreme as possible, and America's divide as literal and violent as possible, The Hunt feigns a viewpoint rather than actually having one. - Guardian EDIT

4/5 99% Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) The film's spareness has lasting power - as Skylar and Autumn boarded the bus home, I realized I had been clenching my jaw the whole movie. - Guardian EDIT

2/5 74% The Photograph (2020) The abundance of talent and some snappy banter add much needed pulse to a film which prioritizes looks over heart, but it can't save a script that's sketch-deep. - Guardian EDIT

2/5 71% Horse Girl (2020) The ambition of Horse Girl ultimately gets the better of it, turning what could be a dark but insightful depiction on signs missed in a mental health crisis into an agreement on one's madness - Guardian EDIT

2/5 21% Like a Boss (2020) Nothing in the script is remotely surprising or very funny, though nothing is horrendous, either. - Guardian EDIT

3/5 78% The Legend of Cocaine Island (2018) The film introduces elements of an iconic post-recession American story... but that story gets muddled by an array of distracting or, at best, divisive editing choices. - Guardian EDIT

5/5 99% Apollo 11 (2019) While there are legitimate criticisms of America's space program, it's hard to argue with a film that defers so humbly to the primary source material. - Guardian EDIT

4/5 60% This Is Personal (2019) This Is Personal does not provide definitive answers, but offers a template for how to listen better - and where to start. - Guardian EDIT

3/5 31% Io (2019) A fully formed Netflix original fit for streaming anytime, anywhere. - Guardian EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2019
4/5 92% Fyre (2019) It's a testament to the film's grasp on its subject that watching it feels like scrolling through Instagram or Twitter - an internet outrage cycle in containment. - Guardian EDIT
