Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
43% Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You! (2017) The Pokémon anime has hardly adhered to the rules of the original games. But Pokémon: I Choose You! goes a step further, ending with a moment so bizarre that my entire theater howled in disbelief.‐ Polygon

80% Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016) Sometimes seeing that something or someone you loved as a kid has stayed the same after all these years is comforting. But this film wears out its welcome fast.‐ Polygon

30% Passengers (2016) Passengers is not technically a horror film, but that's the mode in which it would work best. Instead, it's a predictable space-saving drama, one whose big twist is both not so big at all and its ultimate undoing.‐ Polygon

86% Steve Jobs (2015) 'Forced and unbalanced' adequately describe the film overall. Danny Boyle's cinematic flourishes - abstract, anticipatory cutaways and dramatic, iconography-heavy montages establishing the time between acts - don't best serve Sorkin's script.‐ Polygon

85% Star Trek Beyond (2016) It blandly goes where it's been before.‐ Polygon

84% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea isn't as wonderful overall as the best of Studio Ghibli or Pixar, but it's the kind of small, unique picture that's only possible in animation.‐ Polygon

20% Jem and the Holograms (2015) It preaches an important maxim -- love yourself for who you are -- and then immediately contradicts it by masking its characters and everything about them in artifice without artistry.‐ Polygon

15% Gods Of Egypt (2016) [It's] not satisfied with being your average forgettable blockbuster. No, it wants to be something much worse: a big-budget disaster whose existence is meant to lull those unfortunate few watching to sleep, only to shock them awake in a fit of rage.‐ Polygon

92% Anomalisa (2015) A remarkably human film with a heart as big as its story is small; yet a version of the film that more proudly wears its medium on its sleeve is one that the animation world can only dream of.‐ Polygon

48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) X-Men Apocalypse, for as big and dumb as it is, isn't much fun at all. Instead, the mutants' latest outing undercuts its occasional hints of heart and humor with an excessive runtime, self-serious story and, yes, a lot of big dumbness.‐ Polygon

78% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Not every joke lands, especially if you're outside of the 18-year-old boy demographic. But for every tepid gag or cringeworthy goof, there's a seriously catchy song to more than make up for it.‐ Polygon

80% A Letter to Momo (2014) The stunning animation, from the energy of its characters' faces and bodies to those entrancing backgrounds securely rank the film alongside other worthy entries in post-Miyazaki anime.‐ Film Comment Magazine
