T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 43% The Dirt (2019) The biopic works a little too hard to suggest that they were really just good boys from broken homes who got sucked into the void of music industry excess. - The Daily Dot EDIT

3/5 83% Amy Schumer Growing (2019) Her eye toward the future gives Growing some clarity and shape, even if she stumbles a few times trying to figure out this new chapter of adulthood. - The Daily Dot EDIT

3/5 100% Everybody's Everything (2019) But this isn't a document of judgement or blame. It's a family's meditation on grief and loss; it starts with chaos and ends with calm. - The Daily Dot EDIT

2.5/5 75% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) The Inventor does a lot of telling but not a lot of showing. We still don't know Holmes any better at the end. Is she just an invention too? - The Daily Dot EDIT

3/5 100% Knock Down the House (2019) Lears started filming Ocasio-Cortez while she was still tending bar, and it really is exceptional how much footage of the political and personal journey she captured. - The Daily Dot EDIT

3.5/5 94% Us (2019) As with Get Out, Us plays with the idea of privilege and domesticity, and trades out the trauma of the Sunken Place for a shadow world, "as above so below" writ large. - The Daily Dot EDIT

2/5 60% Ray Romano: Right Here, Around the Corner (2019) I found myself reacting to some of the material like Romano was my own father telling me a bad joke: that closed-mouth smile and silent nod. - The Daily Dot EDIT

3/5 77% Fyre Fraud (2019) Proper event planning can actually pull off a win. Now how many people did Hulu convince to watch? - The Daily Dot EDIT

2.5/5 91% Fyre (2019) "Capture everything," the directive for documenting the lead-up to the festival, yields a bounty of expository content. - The Daily Dot EDIT

94% CAM (2018) It treks even deeper into the maw for an imaginative and terrifying look at the prism of online identity. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
3/5 92% They'll Love Me When I'm Dead (2018) It's frenzied, jumbled, morose-much like The Other Side of the Wind. - The Daily Dot EDIT

4/5 100% Shirkers (2018) Sandi Tan's Shirkers... is a study in memory and performance, as well as the complexities of women's friendship and creativity. - The Daily Dot EDIT

2.5/5 71% Hold the Dark (2018) Often it's the mark of a good film when you're left with questions about what just happened, but Hold the Dark mostly just leaves that feeling of cold. - The Daily Dot EDIT

79% Apostle (2018) When the film finally delves into horror, the pace picks up, but it felt like Apostle was missing the momentum that made Evans' previous films so engaging, and a sense of whose story it's telling. - The Daily Dot EDIT

91% Mandy (2018) Mandy has a little more beauty and hope under all that blood and gore. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018
2.5/5 No Score Yet The After Party (2018) The After Party is a "one crazy night" movie. It's a buddy movie. It's a coming-of-age-movie. Unfortunately, it's not sure which one to focus on. - The Daily Dot EDIT

2.5/5 60% Iliza: Elder Millennial (2018) Shlesinger has always seemed aware that being too feminist could be bad for her brand, and that's her prerogative, but parts of the special feel almost as outdated as the promo for it. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
No Score Yet Jim Jeffries: This Is Me Now (2018) However, he manages to tie his gun control bit into a story about performing at a birthday party for Mariah Carey's boyfriend James Packer with such precision, you almost don't see it coming. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2018
4/5 100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) by the end of the special, you have reached into a well of past lives and trauma and experience - there are several Gadsbys onstage, even if we just see one. - The Daily Dot EDIT

3/5 100% Tig Notaro: Happy to Be Here (2018) Notaro's jokes aren't one-liners, they're investments. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
3.5/5 100% Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife (2018) It's a well-paced special, and the energy rarely lags. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
100% Hari Kondabolu: Warn Your Relatives (2018) While [Kondabolu] doesn't address Apu in the special, he does talk about representation, racism, and privilege. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
No Score Yet Seth Rogen's Hilarity for Charity (2018) It's less clear where Hilarity for Charity fits in; it's not quite a talk show, not just a standup special, but has potential as a variety show. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
84% First Match (2018) First Match escapes the genre and leaves an impression that's often rare for a debut film. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
43% Ricky Gervais: Humanity (2018) If you're someone who works online all day, there's a shade of truth there, but at times during Humanity it feels like Gervais is just calling out random Twitter trolls and not necessarily looking deeper at his own issues. - The Daily Dot EDIT

60% Blood Fest (2018) You have to follow the rules of horror films to escape the horror film, and while Blood Fest gets a little lost along the way, its love of the genre-and satire of it-will speak to the obsessives. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2018
62% Take Your Pills (2018) Ultimately, the film struggles to present an "aesthetic" while also telling human stories that present bigger truths. Klayman admits one of the biggest challenges was to stay on topic, but she sees the irony. - The Daily Dot EDIT

3.5/5 100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) This is Rock in extreme close-up, in a more intimate venue than stadiums of the past. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2018
19% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) The movie feels more like one long episode of TV. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
2.5/5 67% Fred Armisen: Standup For Drummers (2018) Armisen is deft with impressions and characters, but as a standup he still needs practice. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
No Score Yet Todd Glass: Act Happy (2018) The set is unmoored, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. He leans into chaotic good. Glass keeps his energy up, jumping from topic to topic, often starting a joke and abandoning the punchline in favor of a new one. - The Daily Dot EDIT

66% A Futile and Stupid Gesture (2017) In the hands of another director, this film might have felt procedural, but Wain adds in the asides and inside jokes and fourth-wall-breaking that made WHAS so unique. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
100% Chris Gethard: Career Suicide (2017) Career Suicide does feel a bit long, but it's clear Gethard wanted to take his time. He gets people to laugh at the fact that sometimes people break, and there's always a way to put yourself back together. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2018
100% Maria Bamford: Old Baby (2017) The absence of traditional punchlines and structure could be risky for a lesser comic, but Bamford is deft at balancing extended fart noises and musings about her brain - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet Judd Apatow: The Return (2017) Apatow is famous enough that he can poke fun at his fame, but he can also revise his history. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
2.5/5 96% Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton (2017) There's not a lot of scrutiny in Jim & Andy. Carrey's the only present-day interview we get, so there's no real objectivity or point of view, and Smith doesn't ask any hard questions about Kaufman's button-pushing. - The Daily Dot EDIT

89% Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold (2017) In any portrait of an artist, you ideally want to leave with something that feels raw or sacred. By the end of The Center Will Not Hold, one doesn't necessarily feel like they know Didion any better, or that she's loosened her grip on her public image. - The Daily Dot EDIT

88% 1922 (2017) ... Wilfred's guilt becomes a literal infestation. In the hands of a lesser actor, he could have become a caricature, but Jane stains him, revealing his toxic masculinity and vulnerability. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
100% Patton Oswalt: Annihilation (2017) Oswalt's strength is storytelling and here he weaves in and out of bits about DNA testing, witnessing a fight, and robocalls to give the special some levity. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
No Score Yet Long Shot (2017) Something inconsequential became almost comically consequential. In a way, it's the purest episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm yet. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
90% Gerald's Game (2017) [Carla] Gugino's performance in particular is stunning and raw. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2017
92% Louis C.K.: 2017 (2017) It's as if he's having a debate with himself and we're watching. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
83% Patti Cake$ (2017) Patti Cake$ just feels stuck between being a music video and a fully realized film. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
92% Prevenge (2017) Ruth pushes through each absurd act with dead-eyed focus, though we come to find out that focus is shaped by grief, and that Prevenge has an emotional core. - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
No Score Yet Amy Schumer: The Leather Special (2017) It's not a cohesive show - The Daily Dot EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2017
94% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) We're still in the early days of internet history, and Herzog's film serves as a document of a time in which ideas are still being forged about how to tame this ever-growing beast. - The Daily Dot EDIT
