Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 24% In Dubious Battle (2017) In Dubious Battle is monotonous in its messaging, working only when it allows itself to be a character piece less tied to Having Something to Say.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 33% Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time (2017) Trumped plays way too much like a highlight reel from the last year, offering not nearly enough insight into the questions surrounding Trump's campaign and now-presidency.‐ RogerEbert.com

.5/4 No Score Yet American Violence (2017) American Violence seems defiantly unconcerned with addressing the actual issues at play, delivering a generic crime thriller instead.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 14% Get the Girl (2017) The film never feels honestly menacing, or gritty enough to have actual tension.‐ RogerEbert.com

88% Manifesto (2016) The film's necessary linearity destroys that aspect of the installation, cutting back and forth between the various characters and feeling far more like a lecture than an experience.‐ RogerEbert.com

60% Newness (2017) It's grating in its alternate simplicity and pretensions, and the big fights between the two leads ring completely false.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
92% Berlin Syndrome (2017) Palmer and Shortland keep audiences on the edge of their seat for a bit too long (there's a tighter version within this nearly two-hour one) but this is still a confident, interesting thriller.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% Call Me by Your Name (2017) Unforgettable on every level, the kind of film that has the power to move and inspire.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
100% Columbus (2017) A film with precise lines that captures very imprecise human emotions.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
100% Thoroughbred (2017) A razor-sharp horror/satire that plays like an update of Heavenly Creatures for the era of the Kardashians.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
80% Beach Rats (2017) A drama with a strong lead performance and even stronger sense of place.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
58% Crown Heights (2017) Pushing through all of these negative elements is Stanfield's performance, finding honesty whenever he can. I just wish the movie around him was anywhere near as good.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% Burning Sands (2017) Gerard McMurray's drama has more ambition than last year's hazing drama [Goat], as well as interesting racial undertones that the other film did not.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
80% Band Aid (2017) Band Aid may be slight, a bit stagey and not too visually striking, but it's also heartfelt, funny, and straight-up enjoyable.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
71% Bushwick (2017) Sadly, the single-shot gimmick produces almost nothing of interest after that opening scene. The opportunity for forced perspective feels wasted and the movie becomes a trudging slog from first scene to last.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
71% XX (2017) A wonderful idea that simply does not result in a wonderful film.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
82% Killing Ground (2016) Even Eli Roth would turn away from what happens to some of the characters in this film, but it's the case of a delayed, unsatisfying payoff.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
100% Bad Day for the Cut (2017) A taut vengeance thriller that doesn't completely come together as one would hope but has enough solid entertainment value, well-directed visuals, and nasty twists and turns to justify a look.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
100% Trophy (2017) As easy as it would be to argue with this gentleman, Schwarz and Clusiau take the right approach-they chronicle instead of judge.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
100% The Force (2017) A complex, human-driven look at race relations between police and the community, and it could offer some viewers a stark conclusion: this is a permanently broken system.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
100% Quest (2017) Recalls Steve James' Hoop Dreams in both the way it captures people over a long period of a time and in how it finds the profound in the everyday, the universal in the specific.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
75% The Workers Cup (2017) It's the kind of piece that could have cut much of its soccer footage and might have worked better as a short.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
95% Oklahoma City (2017) A well-researched and well-made chronicle of one of the darkest days in U.S. history.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
100% It's Not Yet Dark (2017) Ultimately, what makes It's Not Yet Dark so remarkably powerful is the open-book honesty of its subject and those he loves.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
74% Ingrid Goes West (2017) A depressingly predictable movie, which is a problem when it's about an essentially unhinged woman.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
75% Landline (2017) Too reliant on exaggerated characters and situations, and often looking and feeling like a TV show.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
92% I don't feel at home in this world anymore. (2017) It's one of those classic Sundance cases of a film being more 'promising' than anything else, although I suspect some will take to this gritty thriller as is, and forgive its flaws completely.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
86% The Little Hours (2017) It's often hysterically funny, especially when allowing its talented cast to play up to their individual strengths.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
94% The Incredible Jessica James (2017) Genuinely funny, but not in an aggressively bit-driven way.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
65% Golden Exits (2017) An overly serious and pretentious misstep from the filmmaker, who is basically trying to make his Husbands and Wives too early in his career to really pull it off.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
31% The Yellow Birds (2017) It's not only that The Yellow Birds doesn't have anything new to say, but that it's playing movie karaoke with other, better war movies.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
96% The Big Sick (2017) Nanjiani and Showalter imbue the film with so much more character-based truth than we usually see from the genre. It's the best romantic comedy in years.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
82% Wind River (2017) An engaging thriller, anchored by a strong sense of place (becoming a Sheridan specialty) and a great performance from Jeremy Renner.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
69% The Discovery (2017) An undeniably ambitious film that only becomes increasingly risk-taking as it develops.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
96% Mudbound (2017) A sprawling, ambitious drama, filled with multiple character viewpoints and arcs, and yet always so confidently conveyed that one never loses the humanity at its core.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
92% A Ghost Story (2017) A film that I can guarantee you people will revisit and discuss for years to come. It's daring, strange, and unforgettable.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
3/4 100% Get Out (2017) A complex, accomplished genre hybrid that should alter Jordan Peele's business card.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2017
2/4 35% Live By Night (2017) A footnote in the history of cinematic mob stories.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
2.5/4 71% Master (ma-seu-teo) (2017) The performances are solid to great throughout, and Cho does build to a remarkably satisfying final twenty minutes, but it takes two hours to get there.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
3/4 86% Ocean Waves (Umi ga kikoeru) (2016) A delicate, well-told drama that may lack the depth of something like Only Yesterday but proves that Miyazaki and Takahata's students were listening to their teachers.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
3/4 85% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) The Autopsy of Jane Doe is basically a great haunted house movie-the house just happens to be the morgue.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
.5/4 32% Abattoir (2016) If you operate under the belief that you can learn as much, maybe even more, from bad movies as you can from good ones, this one is a master class in what not to do.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2016
1.5/4 75% SiREN (2016) A movie about implanted memories, a stripper with a tail, and winged creatures, but it doesn't have the personality to make any of that interesting.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
1/4 11% Man Down (2016) Man Down is a bad film, but it's made even worse by the taste it will leave in your mouth regarding its silly handling of a very serious issue.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
3/4 No Score Yet Enlighten Us (2016) It's the very complexity of this situation that makes for fascinating TV, along with Carchman's respect for all the players and a refusal to turn Enlighten Us into an 'answer movie.' ‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2016
2/4 0% The True Memoirs of an International Assassin (2016) It's not action-packed enough, not funny enough, and the characters aren't memorable enough.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
3/4 78% The Monster (2016) A film like Bryan Bertino's The Monster, featuring a fantastic and fearless performance from Zoe Kazan, feels oddly timely.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
2.5/4 70% Trash Fire (2016) It's kind of like Meet the Parents crossed with Psycho and it's a dark, nasty piece of work in most of the ways it should be.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
3/4 80% By Sidney Lumet (2016) It is beautifully constructed, not as a chronological biography of a directorial legend but as a thematic exploration of his work.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2016
3/4 60% I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016) An atmospheric take on the haunted house flick that works more with dread and the looming specter of death than the traditional tropes that often define the genre.‐ RogerEbert.com
