T-Meter Title | Year
62% Yesterday (2019) Beyond the unique premise, the music, the laughs and the problematic love story, Yesterday still has so much heart. - CBR EDIT

83% Midsommar (2019) If you're seeking another original, disturbing experience that won't allow you leave the theater with a peaceful mind, Midsommar is the perma-sunny nightmare for you. - CBR EDIT

57% Aladdin (2019) Aladdin succeeds most when it fully embraces its identity as a musical. The numbers are some of Menken's most audacious, bombastic and exciting, and the film does them justice. - CBR EDIT

51% Tolkien (2019) Tolkien is definitely sentimental, but if you're a Lord of the Rings fan, this isn't anything new -- it's appropriate. - CBR EDIT

47% Dumbo (2019) If this weren't a Disney film, it could be called a blatant critique of the conglomerate's recent activity. That it is a Disney film makes Dumbo pretty ballsy. - CBR EDIT

69% Happy Death Day 2U (2019) The sequel to Happy Death Day manages to recreate the hat trick pulled in the first film and offer audiences a story that not only hilariously skewers horror tropes. More surprisingly, it also offers a sensitive portrayal of grief. Go fig. - CBR EDIT

85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) By and large, it's family entertainment at its best. It recaptures the humor and innocence of the first film, all the while expanding what appears to be a limitless universe, indicating that it'll be a long time before this franchise gets stale. - CBR EDIT

9% Replicas (2019) The movie closes on a wonderfully strange note that's the cherry on top of the weird little sundae that is this movie. - CBR EDIT

50% Escape Room (2019) Once Escape Room finds its groove, it shines on a number of levels, not the least of which is the thrill of watching people battle nightmarish versions of a traditionally fun activity. - CBR EDIT

79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) The story feels secondary to the musical numbers as though it was bent and changed to suit their needs rather than the other way around. That said, there's still plenty to enjoy...This medicine's pretty good, with or without a spoonful of sugar. - CBR EDIT

65% Aquaman (2018) It's still style over substance a lot of the time, but that style bears a real love for the source material, and that's what should be at the heart of every superhero film. Well, that and Jason Momoa's abs. - CBR EDIT

15% Robin Hood (2018) It's simply another action movie desperately hoping to spawn a franchise, despite doing nothing to justify one. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
89% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) While the heart of the movie is Ralph and Venellope's friendship and whether it can stand the test of time and change, Ralph Breaks the Internet is chock-full of other stories, lessons and relationships -- almost to a fault. - CBR EDIT

75% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) The prismatic storytelling and early misdirection keep you off-balance from the very beginning, and things get more unnerving as the first half of the film unfolds. - CBR EDIT

12% Peppermint (2018) When you're not shaking your head at plot inconsistencies, poorly drawn characters and lamentable dialogue, you'll no doubt feel let down that such a brilliant action actress made her return to the genre in such a lemon. - CBR EDIT

24% The Happytime Murders (2018) In an age in which celebrities have virtually overtaken the motion picture voiceover industry and iced out trained voice performers in exchange for name recognition, Henson's created a movie that achieves the best of both worlds. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
80% Alpha (2018) If you like dogs, you will 100% adore this movie. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
46% The Meg (2018) The Meg is way more fun than it has any right to be, and that comes down to pacing. It moves at a breakneck speed that doesn't allow for any time wasted on things like sentimentality or cogent science, which aren't its strong points anyway. - CBR EDIT

17% The Darkest Minds (2018) It's a mildly intriguing premise, but the film doesn't follow through on it with any sort of logic, so the entire story unravels almost as soon as it begins. - CBR EDIT
