T-Meter Title | Year
4/10 No Score Yet Space Detective (2017) Despite solid background work, the character animation is awful. Since film is a visual medium, poor visuals make for a bad movie; especially when it is an animated one. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 No Score Yet Unarmed Man (2019) With a few tweaks to the script, this could make an outstanding stage play. As it stands though, Unarmed Man is a decently directed film with grand ambitions. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Strawberry Flavored Plastic (2018) Strawberry Flavored Plastic is a film of stunning power and intelligence. Everyone in the cast delivers the screenplay's smart dialogue with gusto and intensity. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 40% Saint Bernard (2013) Saint Bernard is weird for the sake of being weird. There is a specific audience that will revel in that oddity and enjoy the movie strictly on those terms. However, as a film with characters and a story to tell the film falls far short of its goals. - Film Threat EDIT

8.5/10 100% Softness of Bodies (2018) Thanks to tight control of the tone and a script committed to its barely coping characters the movie mines humor in unexpected places. However, the true reason to watch the movie is the lead actress. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet Dead Trigger (2019) Dead Trigger isn't the worst film ever, but it oddly plays things safe. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet The 27 Club (2019) The 27 Club is too competent in its structure and pace to be so bad; it's good recommendation. Yet due to the bland, forgettable acting, the characters who don't have any arc to speak of, and the rote, drab visual presentation, the movie is dull viewing. - Film Threat EDIT

4.5/10 83% Black Site (2019) Paton is a fantastic visual stylish with a flair for action, but despite the efforts of a talented cast, the characters have little depth and spend so much expositing about this world that nothing happens for a while. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 71% Instant Dreams (2019) Instant Dreams does a remarkable job of juggling each story and making the viewer invested in each part. The history of the company and its founder, Land, would be enough for a movie all on its own. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 75% Book of Monsters (2019) The awe-inspiring special effects for its monsters, the solid acting, and the kinetic directing work together to craft this loving tribute to the horror films of the 1980s into a most enjoyable experience. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 No Score Yet Mummy Reborn (2019) If you go in expecting a horror movie from The Mummy Reborn, you'll be disappointed. However, the quite humorous family drama in horror window dressing works thanks to the fun cast, well-defined characters, and a pace that never lets up. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 71% Long Lost (2019) While Long Lost might sound like it would be a drama about a controlling man's life slipping away, that isn't accurate. Under Erik Bloomquist's exquisite direction, the film is a head-spinning thriller. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 64% Dead Ant (2019) Dead Ant is not quite the slam dunk it could be, based on its concept and cast. However, the faults don't deter from the sheer fun and energy of the production. Combine that with the very game cast and you get a recipe for a good time. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 55% The Beach Bum (2019) The Beach Bum is not a terrible movie. The directing is competent, the score is excellent, and the cast is game and hilarious. However, considering who was at the helm, it is not focused enough and winds up with nothing to say. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 72% Teen Spirit (2019) Teen Spirit tells an old tale, but Max Minghella's incredible directorial debut is a technicolor, neon-drenched fever dream. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 94% Us (2019) Us is a bit predictable and contains a few jumbled auditory edits. However, these small missteps are in the service of an ambitious story that has a lot to say about what divides us as humans and how those divisions hurt everyone. - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 No Score Yet What Lies Ahead (2019) What Lies Ahead is predictable, and the direction lacks finesse. However, the main characters are well realized, and Willis and Dumont are absolutely perfect in their respective roles. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 90% I Am Paul Walker (2018) It reminds me quite a bit of the late actor himself. It is not the flashiest, nor most stylized of films, much in the same way he was a very understated actor. However, both the documentary and Walker emote such genuine and touching sincerity... - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 91% ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch (2019) I can't exactly call Anthropocene: The Human Epoch a bad movie as it is made with good intentions and the cinematography is truly epic and sweeping. However, there is little reason to be invested... - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Goodnight, Charlene (2019) Goodnight, Charlene is decently directed, beautifully lit, and most of the cast are do well all things considered. However, two of the leads are quite dull, the script is trying too hard to be duplicitous, and winds up going nowhere all that compelling. - Film Threat EDIT
