Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
6.2/10 49% War Machine (2017) There's a benefit to [the] light touch, as it keeps the movie from being consumed by self-seriousness, but by making McMahon the jokey center of the film, Michôd seems to let the D.C. establishment [off] the hook. ‐ Paste Magazine

6.4/10 37% Snatched (2017) If your tastes run to the rude, crude and pleasantly bizarre-the laughs are there, doing the heavy lifting for a story that barely is.‐ Paste Magazine

6.1/10 33% Lavender (2017) While it succumbs to a lot of clichés that blunt its impact, Lavender shows that there are interesting ways to apply genre elements beyond the bump and chills, and in the service of story about memory, trauma, and resolution.‐ Paste Magazine

6.6/10 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Trim the excess running time from director Gore Verbinski's latest, and this old-school horror with a lesson would make quite the impression. However, at two-and-a-half hours, A Cure for Wellness is as needlessly overlong.‐ Paste Magazine

6.1/10 59% Dark Night (2017) This cold, clinical approach might work intellectually, but instinctually it has us feel like unwilling voyeurs, forced to watch private moments.‐ Paste Magazine

4.2/10 41% 100 Streets (2017) 100 Streets doesn't fully develop one story; three threaten to float off the screen from weightlessness.‐ Paste Magazine

7.6/10 100% The Bad Kids (2016) An affecting and enlightening documentary, The Bad Kids offers a fly-on-the-wall look at efforts to help students graduate high school despite their personal struggles and looming sense of hopelessness.‐ Paste Magazine

8.4/10 91% La La Land (2016) La La Land's exhilarating and nearly unflagging energy strives to inspire in viewers an equally bold appreciation for all the things it celebrates.‐ Paste Magazine

4.9/10 42% All We Had (2016) The movie doesn't do anything new with this subject matter, but it hangs together for a little while because of a warm, sympathetic performance by Stefania Owen.‐ Paste Magazine

5.9/10 60% Burn Country (2016) Nothing that follows Burn Country's jarring opening scene, which drops us without warning into an ongoing performance of an avant-garde play, quite lives up to its audacious intensity and strangeness.‐ Paste Magazine

7.8/10 100% The Uncondemned (2016) Some 22 years after the Rwandan Genocide of 1994, The Uncondemned mixes firsthand accounts and courtroom footage to revisit a historical moment that would set a precedent in international law.‐ Paste Magazine

6.3/10 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Even accepting that everything depicted about Doss' heroics are true, Hacksaw Ridge delivers them like someone too intent on wanting to make us feel good about ourselves for honoring the bravery and sacrifice of those soldiers.‐ Paste Magazine

6.4/10 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children remains memorable not for what it does well, but for what it might have been.‐ Paste Magazine

5.9/10 37% Morgan (2016) If Scott and screenwriter Seth W. Owen gave more attention to ideas than shocks and genre action, they might have come up with a fascinating picture. As it is, they've made their own Frankenstein's monster.‐ Paste Magazine

5.4/10 17% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Before the series' creators decide they must give us a sixth installment, they'd do well to consider whether they're tired of the series regulars and should instead spin off the more interesting ones of recent vintage.‐ Paste Magazine

6.3/10 No Score Yet Full Court: The Spencer Haywood Story (2016) A moderately involving look at a man who helped shape the course of the NBA and those who aspire to play in the league on their own terms.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 91% Queen Mimi (2016) It's right that the respectful Queen Mimi lives up to its name doesn't condescend to its regal subject. Filmed over five years, it allows her to be a friendly guide through her life.‐ Paste Magazine

6.8/10 67% Hostile Border (Pocha: Manifest Destiny) (2016) McLaughlin, for whom this is her first feature-length screenwriting credit, gives her characters incisive dialogue that keeps the human relations front and center. She also knows the value of silence and its ability to convey fear, dread and loneliness.‐ Paste Magazine

5.8/10 No Score Yet Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago (2015) [The film] will only really find a very receptive audience among longtime fans.‐ Paste Magazine

4.8/10 43% Miracles from Heaven (2016) How this comes across will depend not just on your religious sympathies, but your tolerance for cloying dramatization.‐ Paste Magazine

5.1/10 17% Pound Of Flesh (2015) That it's not terrible despite its debits is probably the most generous assessment of Jean-Claude Van Damme's latest, a watchable oddity.‐ Paste Magazine

7.4/10 69% The Dead Lands (2015) Viewed in the context of its intense combat scenes, The Dead Lands is a more-than-serviceable actioner distinguished by its exotic backdrop, gorgeous cinematography and engrossing performances.‐ Paste Magazine

5.8/10 8% Growing Up and Other Lies (2015) Though it doesn't carry the impact one would have hoped for, Growing Up and Other Lies finally intimates empathy for these modern musketeers clinging to the comfort of at least being there for each other.‐ Paste Magazine
