Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 100% Manson Family Vacation (2015) Manson Family Vacation proves Nick and Conrad are better when they are together and Davis wisely keeps their relationship at the center of the film, no matter what the two brothers encounter on their journey together. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 26, 2015
A- 100% Stray Dog (2015) Stray Dog is an impressive documentary (and a major accomplishment for Granik) because goes beyond a simple a portrait of a man and becomes something inherently inspirational. ‐ Film School Rejects

97% The Artist (2011) Filmed in stunning black-and-white, The Artist takes us back to a time when men wore suits, women wore hats and a simple dance could lead to love. ‐ Film School Rejects

B 78% Harmontown (2014) The message at the heart of Harmontown shows how Harmon may have achieved certain goals, but the bigger challenge he still faces is learning to accept himself the way his audience and fans have accepted him. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 6, 2014
B- 49% Earth to Echo (2014) Full of heart and framed around a fun adventure with a lovable little alien, Earth to Echo should appeal to adults and kids alike. ‐ Film School Rejects

B- 95% Snowpiercer (2014) While the highly stylized set pieces are certainly eye catching, they start to feel disjointed and nonsensical. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 13, 2014
A 98% Mud (2013) Nichols truly takes you into this world and while the story may be a bit unsettling, the performances refuse to allow you to take your eyes off the screen. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 1, 2014
B- 92% In a World... (2013) While certainly funny and goofy, In A World... also imparts an important message about the power of voice, and Bell is clearly a voice to be heard. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 31, 2013
B+ 96% Muscle Shoals (2013) It is amazing to see how this style and sound came to fruition as it changed the careers of artists like Aretha Franklin and created some of the most memorable albums and songs from artists like Etta James, The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and [more]. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 30, 2013
A- 96% The Crash Reel (2013) The Crash Wheel makes a valiant effort to bring wider awareness to some of the bigger issues surrounding these extreme sports, but the film is strongest when it is simply Pearce's story. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 22, 2013
B+ 96% The Act Of Killing (2013) [The film explores] what happens when you give those who have done something terrible (in this case, killing thousands) a forum through which to tell their story to see if a new perspective changes their attitude. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 16, 2013
A 99% Short Term 12 (2013) Short Term 12 will having you laughing one minute and tearing up in the next. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 10, 2013
B 53% Out of the Furnace (2013) Bale and Affleck have an easy relationship and chemistry that makes them seem like real brothers, with Bale yet again proving he is the master at conveying a monologue's worth of emotion in a single brooding look. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 11, 2013
B- 28% Ass Backwards (2013) Wilson and Raphael do not hold back in their performances, fully committing to their roles and making Chloe and Kate both lovable and laughable. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 17, 2013
B- 86% The Conjuring (2013) The Conjuring is a well-crafted throwback to old school horror films, and the scares are unrelenting, but fans of the genre may find themselves guessing what is coming next. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 7, 2013
c 75% Kill Your Darlings (2013) Never really hits or finds its footing, making it a decent and at times inspiring film, but one that leaves you wanting to dive more fully into either Carr or Ginsberg's lives. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 14, 2013
B+ 93% The Spectacular Now (2013) The honest way all the actors approach their relationships with one another make The Spectacular Now not only a good time but a story worth viewing. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 29, 2013
A 97% Ernest & Célestine (2014) Directors Stéphane Aubier, Vincent Patar, and Benjamin Renner keep Ernest and Celestine visually stimulating, which should entertain both children and adults alike. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 24, 2013

Posted Jun 24, 2013
A 100% Sound City (2013) A comprehensive look into the recording process and how it has changed over the years (and continues to change) while taking audiences on a journey from where music was in the '70s to where it is today. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 29, 2013
B+ 50% A.C.O.D. (2013) Zicherman, who also directed the film, has brought together a strong comedic cast, but he also utilizes them well to create a funny film that even those of us who are not A.C.O.D.s (see: me) can relate to. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 25, 2013
60% John Dies at the End (2013) [A] very off-kilter tale that plays to old school horror fans. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2013
B- 70% Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012) Quote not available. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2013
A 91% The Sapphires (2013) A fully realized and layered story that delivers both humor and compassion, fantastic music that truly takes you back to that point in time, and an unforgettable performance from O'Dowd. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2013
B+ 92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) Cooper and Lawrence radiate off each other as they run both physically and mentally away from (and towards) each other. ‐ Film School Rejects

Posted Jun 24, 2012

Posted Jun 20, 2012
A 94% The Queen of Versailles (2012) This honesty and heart is what makes The Queen of Versailles so compelling. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 20, 2012
C 35% LUV (2013) The ideas of good/bad, past/future, reality/fantasy are impressively tackled and embodied by the talented cast, but Candis's narrative starts to lose steam halfway through, causing these performances to lose their footing as well. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 20, 2012
A- 93% Indie Game: The Movie (2012) Even if you are "pursuing your dreams," at the end of the day, work is work. It may be more exciting and different than your average 9-5 cubicle life, it is still a job with deadlines, pressure, and stress. ‐ Film School Rejects
