Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) The film's ability to make fun of itself is just one of the many things that make it a joy to watch.‐ New York Daily News

2.5/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) The film's biggest issue is not knowing exactly what kind of movie it wants to be - and ends up being a hodgepodge. Nothing "Happy" about that.‐ New York Daily News

4.5/5 49% The Glass Castle (2017) "The Glass Castle" is a family portrait that at its heart is a father-daughter movie, anchored by two outstanding actors.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) One of this franchise's strengths is that it manages to balance high-stakes action and explosions with gusts of humor. The rescue of Earth and mankind comes with jokes and treats for all audiences to enjoy.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 54% 47 Meters Down (2017) What unfolds is a smart, tense nail-biter that's bound to leave some clinging to the shoreline this summer.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) When you get beyond the toilet humor (fart jokes, nods to Uranus) there's a lovely story of true-blue friendship.‐ New York Daily News

3.5/5 46% Everything, Everything (2017) The last few minutes are a bit clichéd, if not uplifting, but what gets Maddy there is heartbreaking and infuriating.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 74% Wakefield (2017) Wakefield is selfish and cunning, competitive and controlling. He's also unmistakably human and, surprisingly, totally relatable whether you'll admit it or not.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 37% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) They blue it.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 63% Before I Fall (2017) A collision of sci-fi, drama and horror, "Before I Fall" earns points for ambition.‐ New York Daily News

2.5/5 46% Rock Dog (2017) Brannon's slapstick comedy of errors works its tail off to entertain, but it's just too doggone long and short on laugh-out-loud moments.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 33% A Dog's Purpose (2017) The film is both heartwarming and soul-shattering. Its theme of an unbreakable bond between man and his best friend is reminiscent of "My Dog Skip," "Homeward Bound" and "Old Yeller."‐ New York Daily News

2.5/5 41% Office Christmas Party (2016) For a movie that was advertised as the wildest bash of the year, "Office Christmas Party" has a few too many plotlines and not enough actual debauchery.‐ New York Daily News

3.5/5 81% Best and Most Beautiful Things (2016) There are several beautiful instances where the camera goes out of focus, everything blurs and for a brief moment, Michelle's vulnerabilities and anxieties are given their glorious closeup.‐ New York Daily News

4.5/5 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) The struggles of being a kid are beautifully depicted in the film ... both homage to and a modernization of the traditional high school dramedy where the immediacy of social media can ruin a life.‐ New York Daily News

1.5/5 51% Almost Christmas (2016) All I want for Christmas is my two hours back.‐ New York Daily News

4.5/5 93% The Eagle Huntress (2016) "The Eagle Huntress" is all at once an inspiring story for children of all ages to believe that they can do anything, a reflection of the unfairness of gender roles and a rare and unique look at a remote part of the world.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 100% The Uncondemned (2016) Along with telling the story of the accomplishment of the prosecutors in this case, the documentary uses its platform as an opportunity to say something bigger about how women are treated today, across the world.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 85% Amanda Knox (2016) "Amanda Knox" will not answer any questions surrounding the mystery of Meredith Kercher's murder - but the documentary will stay with audiences long after its 92 minute run time.‐ New York Daily News
