Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
30% The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016) Faithful, fast-paced, and largely entertaining, this new Rocky Horror Picture Show is neither the calamity fans like myself were fearing nor the triumph that we were all hoping for.‐ Guardian

87% Looking: The Movie (2016) When Looking is at its best, it justifies the existence of this movie, even if we thought we didn't need one.‐ Guardian

55% Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? (2016) While Mother May I Sleep with Danger? aims to be both a remake and a parody it fails on both counts.‐ Guardian

3/5 82% Glassland (2016) It earns its tears, even if it skimps out on everything else.‐ Guardian

60% The Passion (2016) The production was magnificent and the talent undeniable, but how it was received depends heavily on the beliefs and biases of the individual viewers.‐ Guardian

91% Grease: Live! (2016) What a triumph. After three years of watching NBC do summer stock on national television, Fox swooped in and stole the live musical format right out from underneath them.‐ Guardian

4/5 83% Captain Fantastic (2016) Finely wrought and inventive, Captain Fantastic surely earns the lofty praise of its title.‐ Guardian

3/5 87% Morris from America (2016) Ultimately it's a sweet movie with some good laughs and a phenomenal rap soundtrack, that nevertheless fails to rise above the pack.‐ Guardian

78% Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors (2015) Just like Dolly Parton, who is one of the best live performers I've ever seen, it is immensely watchable. However, for those who don't regularly visit the house of the lord, it will make your eyes roll like loose marbles in the back of a station wagon.‐ Guardian

75% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) Sitting down to actually watch it start to finish might leave you dazed and confused, but it's great to have on while trimming the tree. If they release a soundtrack, you should buy it immediately.‐ Guardian

91% The Wiz Live! (2015) Everyone agrees, Shanice Williams will ease on down the road to super-stardom after this performance. Her voice was incredible and her performance top-notch.‐ Guardian

98% Finders Keepers (2015) What could easily be a silly saga or a simple indictment of the culture of fame becomes something diabolically more insightful and uplifting.‐ Guardian

4/5 No Score Yet What could easily be a silly saga or a simple indictment of the culture of fame becomes something diabolically more insightful and uplifting.‐ Guardian

3/5 46% A Walk In The Woods (2015) A Walk in the Woods is certainly no Butch Cassidy, but it is interesting to check in with these two still-compelling codgers.‐ Guardian

80% 7 Days in Hell (2015) The film fulfills the mockumentary promise it starts out with, but ends up becoming a whole lot more, mostly thanks to an all-star cast.‐ Guardian

2/5 39% Strangerland (2015) The problem is, for all of the striving at depth, it ultimately doesn't make much sense.‐ Guardian

5/5 88% Dope (2015) It's about kids who we're generally not asked to care about: a cast almost entirely made up of actors of colour.‐ Guardian

3/5 77% People Places Things (2015) There are no broad gestures or base comedy - the clever dialogue is instead packed with zingers, even if it sometimes takes a moment to get the punning humour.‐ Guardian

4/5 98% Welcome To Leith (2015) This new documentary, the latest from Michael Beach Nichols and Christopher K Walker, is filmed like a thriller - but the fact that it actually happened is what's most terrifying.‐ Guardian

2/5 90% (T)ERROR (2015) This information needs to be shown to the public, and some will be drawn to it regardless of its form. But as a well-crafted film, it has a long way to go.‐ Guardian

4/5 80% Cop Car (2015) Bacon, sporting a creepy moustache, is great, and both boys give strong, naturalistic performances.‐ Guardian

3/5 92% Grandma (2015) Possibly the greatest thing about Grandma is that it passes the Bechdel test with flying colours, better than any film I've seen recently.‐ Guardian

4/5 100% 3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015) Davis's parents have called for stricter gun control laws in the wake of their son's death. Silver has provided them with a powerful tool for their cause in this shocking, moving and relatively unbiased account of the tragedy.‐ Guardian

4/5 94% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) First time writer/director Marielle Heller, adapting the novel by Phoebe Gloekner, does a bang up job with the story, but also offers a fair bit of visual ingenuity.‐ Guardian

2/5 No Score Yet 6 Desires: DH Lawrence and Sardinia (2015) Never has 85-minutes crept by at such a snail's pace.‐ Guardian

3/5 27% Stockholm, Pennsylvania (2015) With a bit more maturity and confidence in her vision, Beckwith is sure to come up with something that's a knockout all the way through.‐ Guardian

30% Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever (2014) If the people behind Sharknado could make a movie about Santa, it would look something like this.‐ Guardian
