Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Ralph Breaks the Internet is smart, charming and funny while also being pointed, effective and very timely.‐ Dallas Morning News

A 97% The Hate U Give (2018) At its best, it will force you to look at the society we've created and perpetuate and ask, "Can we do better?"‐ Dallas Morning News

B 72% Christopher Robin (2018) Sometimes the timing of a good story is everything, and this particular story comes at a time when the world at large needs a little more hope, a little more innocence and a lot more Pooh.‐ Dallas Morning News

B 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It's fun, it's funny, and it's got such lower stakes than Avengers: Infinity War that it's practically the equivalent of a relaxing Sunday afternoon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.‐ Dallas Morning News

C- 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The only moments where the film tries to do something of consequence with the plot, tying back (albeit barely) into the gene research drama that kicked off the series, end up being pretty dumb.‐ Dallas Morning News

B- 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Like Han Solo himself, Solo is rough around the edges. Under the grime, though, is a fun romp through space that's more lighthearted than you might expect from Star Wars.‐ Dallas Morning News

B- 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) This ultra-violent sequel to one of the most successful R-rated movies of all time is often hilarious, but the skeleton holding it together can't really hold up its end of the bargain. For most people, though, that will be OK.‐ Dallas Morning News

A- 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) It's the epitome of a summer blockbuster. The explosive action is practically nonstop, breaking only occasionally for jokes and a touch of romance - though without ever breaking its grim, apocalyptic tone.‐ Dallas Morning News

D 52% Rampage (2018) If you want to watch an ape give The Rock the finger, then Rampage has something for you - but not much else.‐ Dallas Morning News

B 73% Ready Player One (2018) For all its faults, the movie has a sense of fun that is hard to ignore, and it's clear that it comes from a place of genuine affection for the referenced material.‐ Dallas Morning News

B- 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Do you like watching giant robots fight monsters, often with little to no regard for how much destruction ends up in their wake? Great news: There's something in Pacific Rim Uprising for you.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
B 51% Tomb Raider (2018) This Lara Croft is a capable, intelligent action-movie heroine, not an excuse to flaunt boobs and guns. You care about who she is, not just what she looks like.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
B 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) It's visually splendid, packed with imagination and offers powerful messages about love, individuality and self-acceptance.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
B+ 55% The Greatest Showman (2017) The story is interesting and the beats are well-acted, but it's the musical numbers that make The Greatest Showman.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The Last Jedi is funny, it's emotional, it's fast-paced and it has a good story to tell.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
A- 97% Coco (2017) It's a whimsical, touching and heartfelt celebration of Mexican traditions and folklore, and it's one of the more original stories the acclaimed animation studio has told in years.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
C+ 40% Justice League (2017) I went into Justice League with high hopes but low expectations. It exceeded the expectations, but didn't rise to the level of the hopes.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
B 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Murder on the Orient Express isn't particularly mind-blowing, but it serves as good crime story comfort food -- a whodunit that's easy to settle in with for a couple of hours.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
B- 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) The third film about Marvel's superhero based on the Norse god of thunder shakes things up drastically, taking the series in a more colorful, more fantastic and more comedic direction.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
B+ 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) While Blade Runner 2049 may not end up being the classic the original is, in some ways it's as good of a sequel as you could ask for.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
C+ 48% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Valerian is sci-fi at its most fantastical. It's a shame that the dialogue, acting and anything involving humans too often feels stilted and unbelievable.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
B+ 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) The costumed antics of Homecoming are a joy to watch, with tense set pieces and well-choreographed action, but some of the movie's brightest spots are in its more down-to-earth moments.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
B+ 93% Wonder Woman (2017) Taken just at face value as a superhero movie, Wonder Woman is one of the best in its class, matching some of the better efforts in a genre that Marvel has dominated for years.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
C+ 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) The dead tell a tale in the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but unfortunately that tale is erratic, filled with holes, peppered with far-too-convenient plot points and tarnished by over-the-top situations ...‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
C 31% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) It's got some interesting ideas packed inside cool cinematography and high-octane action, but those things come at the expense of plot and character development, making it a fairly typical summer popcorn movie.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
B+ 83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Vol. 2 doesn't take long to get moving, and once it starts, it just goes. There isn't a lot in the way of downtime and there aren't any moments of filler.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
B- 48% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) The plot and character developments never reach Marvel-levels of script writing, but they're above average for the B- or C-tier stuff you might expect from this movie.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
B+ 93% Logan (2017) It runs long and has a bit more action than it really needs, but Logan will likely find a spot among the best comic book adaptations to grace a movie theater.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
B+ 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Lego Batman is a clear high point for modern movies based on DC Comics, and the rest of Warner Bros.' superhero slate should learn from it.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
A- 86% A Monster Calls (2017) MacDougall skillfully rises to the challenge of portraying this struggle, carrying the emotional weight that the story demands, and displaying a solid range between deep sadness and intense anger.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2017
C+ 30% Passengers (2016) Disappointing at best, problematic at worst.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
C- 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) Assassin's Creed is good evidence that sometimes a video game is the better medium than a movie with which to tell a story.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
A- 84% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Yes, it's part of a series that is now eight movies strong, but it also works alone as a movie about war, oppression, a dangerous heist, a daring rebellion and a spark of hope that ignites the final stages of a revolution.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
B 95% Moana (2016) Moana makes for a great role model for young children, especially girls.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
A 94% Arrival (2016) By the time it ends, Arrival is a story that could only be told in the science-fiction genre, and the result is a beautiful narrative that you find has been telling you things about itself without you ever realizing it.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
A- 89% Doctor Strange (2016) Marvel is getting increasingly good at delivering great movies based on material that shouldn't really work on film.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
B 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) It may not be the next Hunger Games-esque blockbuster franchise, but it's an enjoyable ride through time and peculiarity.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
B 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) More often than not it's a charming, Eastern-influenced myth that's beautiful to watch and enjoyable to follow.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2016
C+ 12% Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV (2016) Kingsglaive won't set the world on fire, but it might just be the best movie that bears the Final Fantasy name. That's not a high bar, but it's an accomplishment.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2016
C 27% Suicide Squad (2016) It was supposed to show us that the folks at Warner Bros. still know how to make great comic book movies. Suicide Squad is not very successful at that.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2016
B 74% Ghostbusters (2016) It's no flawless classic, but it's an exciting and often funny ride through a neighborhood where something strange is going on.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
B- 73% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) The animation is wonderful, leading to plenty of colorful visual gags and over-the-top situations.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2016
B- 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) It doesn't re-invent the vine, but The Legend of Tarzan swings its way into being one of the better on-screen adaptations of the classic character.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2016
C 28% Warcraft (2016) Little more than a dumb action blockbuster that has a bit of style but little substance.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2016
C 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) The plot does little other than serve as a vehicle for the eye candy of colorful characters and wondrous landscapes.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted May 26, 2016
C+ 18% Ratchet & Clank (2016) A few jokes try to be clever (for example, there's a Wilhelm Scream joke that your kids aren't going to appreciate), but more often than not they keep it simple -- and sometimes stupid.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2016
A- 97% Zootopia (2016) It strikes a near perfect balance between fun family comedy and message film, never feeling like it's too much of either.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2016
B 84% Deadpool (2016) Calling Deadpool "just another comic book movie" would do injustice to a film that makes a strong effort to deliver something different.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2016
B- 44% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Fun, funny, gory and yet still strangely romantic.‐ Dallas Morning News
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2016
C+ 61% Sisters (2015) Even when I was laughing, even when well-written lines were well-delivered, it was hard to shake the feeling that I'd seen it all before.‐ Dallas Morning News
