Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "A disappointing, mediocre movie. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 26, 2016
3.5/4 91% The Lobster (2016) "The sort of movie that makes you consider what the filmmaker is saying, as well as what the movie is actually about. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 26, 2016
3/4 79% Maggie's Plan (2016) "Life in "Maggie's Plan" is terrifyingly unpredictable. Just like everyone's, which is what makes it so charming. Plan to see it. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 26, 2016
3.5/4 99% Love & Friendship (2016) "It's a movie that is not just an achievement in its own right, but the sort that makes one reconsider all of Stillman's previous films. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 20, 2016
2/4 43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) ""The Angry Birds Movie" is about as filling as the game itself, and has little to say other than friendship is good, pigs are bad, and angry payback is best of all. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 20, 2016
91% The Nice Guys (2016) "It nicely captures the seediness of L.A. in the '70s , but, despite a very encouraging first act, it loses steam and gets bogged down in its own narrative. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 19, 2016
2/4 56% Money Monster (2016) "Try as it might to tap into such previous populist films as "Network" or perhaps more appropriately, "Dog Day Afternoon," it undercuts its own potential importance by being overly simplistic. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 12, 2016
3/4 78% The Family Fang (2016) "Subtle, smart and successful ... " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 12, 2016
3/4 63% High-Rise (2016) "Though it's set in the past, the future is bleak for the residents of the "High-Rise." As oddly prescient as the source material is, let's just hope our own is brighter. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 12, 2016
3/4 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "The biggest of all the Avengers films, and perhaps the most satisfying. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 5, 2016
2/4 63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "For a movie about a mathematician who always thought outside the box, "The Man Who Knew Infinity" is quite staid and traditional. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted May 5, 2016
2/4 8% Papa: Hemingway in Cuba (2016) "Something of an underwhelming experience in which Hemingway is a supporting character in his own story. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3/4 90% Green Room (2016) "The violence is intense and visceral. And while it may be a familiar formula, Saulnier's cast is top-notch, his writing is sharp, and it isn't long before you realize that no one's survival is guaranteed. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3/4 82% The Meddler (2016) "Scafaria's film has a lot of heart, even though there are times when it goes a little too far, and others when Marnie's actions just seem kind of ridiculous. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 28, 2016
97% Sing Street (2016) "This rock 'n' roll fantasy, set in Dublin in 1985, will leave you feeling as warm as a gorgeous pop song, and nostalgic for that time in your life when discovering new music that sings to you is the most important thing in the world. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 21, 2016
67% A Hologram for the King (2016) "This is actually intriguing, something of a "Waiting for Godot" fish-out-of-water story. Because, in that scenario, anything can happen. And some of it does. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 21, 2016
76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "As a whole, "Elvis & Nixon" is an enjoyably lightweight distraction that, thankfully, takes one away from the current election season for a scant 86 minutes. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 21, 2016
80% Hostile Border (Pocha: Manifest Destiny) (2016) "It's the sort of movie that has a sense of authenticity to it, even if the circumstances themselves are tremendously dramatic. It's a strong, solid debut from Dwyer, and will hopefully serve as a calling card for him and his talented cast. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 17, 2016
95% The Jungle Book (2016) "Somehow Favreau has created a fresh, vibrant new version of the same story, one that is wonderfully emotional and stunningly beautiful. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 17, 2016
19% The Adderall Diaries (2016) "There are scattered subplots that never truly come together as a cohesive whole. It's a labor of love that doesn't successfully do its source material justice. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 14, 2016
3/4 88% Born To Be Blue (2016) ""Born to Be Blue" is about jazz, sure, but it's also full of soul. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 7, 2016
50% Demolition (2016) "Look, life is an arbitrary set of circumstances, vaguely predictable on the best of days. That is what "Demolition" attempts to embrace - the randomness of it all. Instead, unfortunately, it comes across as contrived and often trite. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 7, 2016
71% Remember (2016) "A patient, thoughtful movie, the sort of film grown-ups aren't often treated to these days. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Apr 1, 2016
21% I Saw the Light (2016) "He was a remarkable musician, but "I Saw the Light" is an unremarkable film. Fans of the "Your Cheatin' Heart" singer are likely to find themselves feeling cheated, cinematically. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 31, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "Sure, it looks great, and everything billows, including capes, trenchcoats and Lex's locks. But strong visuals alone aren't enough to make a graphic novel great, let alone a movie with a production budget north of $200 million. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 24, 2016
90% City Of Gold (2016) "Gold's writing sparkles much like his namesake, and often reading it is as delicious as some of the dishes he samples. Gabbert's new movie is a tasty morsel in and of itself. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 24, 2016
32% The Bronze (2016) ""The Bronze" is a clever premise gone awry, a comedy without enough laughs, unable to stick the landing when it needs it most. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 18, 2016
95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Hood ratchets up the tension and keeps it there. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 18, 2016
99% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) "The movie drifts back and forth between the two time periods, winding down the same river as though it were a twisting snake, getting closer and closer to its mouth, jaws and venom. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 10, 2016
90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "Winstead is the glue that holds it all together, but it's Goodman who, as Howard, really runs the show. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 10, 2016
2/4 79% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "It isn't that "The Wave" is all that bad; it's simply that it doesn't stand up to the epic productions from whence it came. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Mar 4, 2016
2.5/4 53% Triple 9 (2016) "The movie walks a thin blue line between creating bad guys who are so tough you can't help but like them, and making them so vicious that there's little to admire. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 25, 2016
3.5/4 91% A War (Krigen) (2016) "The movie is adept in both the fog of war and the fog of law that follows it. It poses complicated questions and refuses to offer easy answers. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 25, 2016
2.5/4 91% The Witch (2016) "Eggers has made a well-crafted, moody film, one perhaps more horrifying than actually scary ... " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 19, 2016
2.5/4 61% Race (2016) "Merely good enough, rather than something spectacular. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 19, 2016
2.5/4 83% Deadpool (2016) "It's bloody good fun, kicking off with a tremendous opening-credits sequence and a terrifically entertaining action set piece. Reynolds is wonderfully fun. He's a chiseled movie star, to be sure, but he's always best when he can goof on the part. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 12, 2016
2.5/4 77% Where to Invade Next (2016) "Are these problems insurmountable? Sometimes it certainly feels as if they are, but perhaps not. Other nations are tackling them successfully, so why can't we? " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 12, 2016
2/4 30% Mojave (2016) "Monahan remains a better writer than director, unable to create a thriller with real thrills, and leaning toward characters that seem stilted - unfortunate considering the caliber of the players. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 12, 2016
2.5/4 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Will it rile up your emotions, or make you truly question something, anything, like their best films can do, while still making you laugh? Hail the Coens, to be sure, but in this case, it's questionable. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/4 93% 2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Live Action (2016) "This year's live-action films are an interesting, if straightforward lot, which is surprising, because most successful short films have a unique twist that ties them together. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3.5/4 100% 2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Animated (2016) "While the live-action offerings are strong, if tame, the animated films are far more daring, as befits the medium. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 28, 2016
2.5/4 63% The Finest Hours (2016) "A film that feels old-fashioned in its delivery but is also enormously exciting in its execution. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3.5/4 97% 45 Years (2015) "Both Rampling (nominated for an Academy Award for the first time) and Courtenay are wonderful here, doing tremendous work as a couple who know each other all too well, but perhaps don't know each other at all. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 28, 2016
2.5/4 55% Lazer Team (2016) "Great cinema it is not, but a mildly enjoyable distraction it most certainly can be, following in a rich tradition of science fiction comedy. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3/4 65% A Perfect Day (2016) "A project that's intriguing, funny, emotional and sensitive, one that raises issues abundantly important today and makes us consider whether we're truly considering what else is going on in the world around us. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/4 92% The Lady In The Van (2015) ""The Lady in the Van" is smart, often funny, and above all tragic, as befits any movie about a homeless person living in a van for 15 years. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 21, 2016
1/4 17% The 5th Wave (2016) "The whole thing becomes so ludicrous that it's unintentionally funny as it reaches its lackluster climax, which is carefully designed to lead into the next film, assuming there is one. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3.5/4 82% The Revenant (2015) "The story is straightforward enough, but Iñárritu and Lubezki have the utmost respect for the land around them. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Jan 7, 2016
4/4 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) "It relies on smart writing, clever ideas, terrific cinematography and rich, complex characters who are inhabited by three superb young actors, as well as a cast of crafty veterans in the supporting roles. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
Posted Dec 31, 2015
4/4 94% Room (2015) "It's a brutal, wonderful performance, bolstered by the screenplay, which Donoghue adapted herself. Clever, nimble, and smart, it gives these actors room to truly work, all of which is supported by Abrahamson's sharp direction. " ‐ San Diego Union-Tribune
