Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
92% Dunkirk (2017) Go ahead and engrave the Oscar now, for this is the best film of the year and one of the 10 greatest of the century.‐ Orlando Weekly

4/5 78% The Hero (2017) Having not seen all of Elliott's performances over his 50-year career, I can't say definitively that this is his best. But it sure feels like it.‐ Orlando Weekly

3.5/5 77% Beatriz at Dinner (2017) Introducing intrigue to the film's structural simplicity are the dreamy visual flourishes of cinematographer Wyatt Garfield. Thanks also goes to editor Jay Deuby for keeping Dinner's courses to a minimum.‐ Orlando Weekly

3/5 83% Megan Leavey (2017) Though the screenplay, direction and performances never reach a level of intelligence one would hope for, the film hits enough right notes to recommend a viewing, especially for those with a soft spot for animals and an interest in military stories.‐ Orlando Weekly

48% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) Even if you swallow the odd but intriguing premise, you just might gag on the clunky dialogue, awkward pacing and uncomfortably subpar performance of Diane Lane.‐ Orlando Weekly

3.5/5 50% The Dinner (2017) Humanity is still the most satisfying film ingredient, and The Dinner serves up plenty, plus a side of morality and a palate cleanser of social commentary.‐ Orlando Weekly

2/5 35% The Last Word (2017) Though the movie is likable and contains a unique premise, the dramedy falls flat thanks to its contrived, unremarkable script and performances that often fail to connect on an honest, emotional level.‐ Orlando Weekly

76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Lacking the novelty of the 1933 original and the style and wonder of the 2005 Peter Jackson remake, this Kong is just plain unnecessary.‐ Orlando Weekly

1.5/5 10% Bitter Harvest (2017) Bitter Harvest does offer pretty cinematography and respectable battle scenes, and it gains credibility with its book-end finale, but the victims of the Holodomor deserve an infinitely better cinematic epitaph.‐ Orlando Weekly

2/5 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) The smart, surreal premise slowly, slowly unravels into schlock.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2017
25% The Comedian (2017) Poor pacing, stale writing and pretentious parade of cameos (wait for the one in the elevator) produce a film and a main character that aren't interesting, relatable or humorous.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2017
3/5 75% Split (2017) Though Split still doesn't approach the quality of The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, it is proof that the writer-director finally has something interesting to say again.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2017
2/5 89% 20th Century Women (2017) A rather poorly directed and edited movie about a mother struggling to raise her son in a world she doesn't quite understand or embrace.‐ Orlando Weekly

3.5/5 87% A Monster Calls (2017) Most movie creatures are better left alone. But this is one monster call you should answer.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Admittedly, this can be viewed as simply another rehash of old stories and themes, but hash is rarely this tasty.‐ Orlando Weekly

4/5 92% La La Land (2016) Never have the glory days of Hollywood been reimagined quite like they are in the new film by writer-director Damien Chazelle.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2016
55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) If this is Beatty's finale, as some suggest, he's going out on a high note - higher than the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
4/5 98% Moonlight (2016) If you're patient enough to stick with it, the emotional payoffs are profound.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
4/5 83% Denial (2016) The film is slow to gain dramatic steam, but once it does, the emotional payoffs are huge.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
4/5 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) In a patient and mature fashion, the film spends most of its two hours telling Turner's life story and helping us understand the man's heart and mind. And that patience pays off ...‐ Orlando Weekly

45% The Hollars (2016) Krasinski's heart was in the right place with his sophomore endeavor, but, like his character's hospitalized mother, his cranium just wasn't up to the task.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
4/5 85% Sully (2016) Some viewers may find the film too predictable and TV-movie-like. Instead, this reviewer found it fascinating, gripping and worthy of the legacy of an American hero.‐ Orlando Weekly

2/5 71% Café Society (2016) From the stiff performances to the odd narrative structure to the clunky editing to Allen's almost unbearable voice-over, this film fails.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
1/5 35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) Newbie director Jake Szymanski and writers Andrew Cohen and Brendan O'Brien don't seem to grasp the essence of farce. This is more fart ...‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2016
3/5 51% Genius (2016) Perhaps the strength of the film - and the chief reason I'm recommending it - is that it challenges us to define genius for ourselves.‐ Orlando Weekly

3/5 85% Maggie's Plan (2016) Though the film feels a bit like a stepping stone to something greater for Miller, the stone is surprisingly polished.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2016
2/5 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) Proceed, oh audience, with utmost dread, For cinematic logic and proportion Have fallen sloppy dead.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2016
4/5 79% Where to Invade Next (2016) Despite questionable facts and occasionally outrageous logic, particularly on the issue of race, Moore is still able to shock, entertain, sadden and inspire us while also making a stunning - and surprisingly positive - plea for change.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2016
4/5 93% Anomalisa (2015) Anomalisa addresses painful adult issues and presents uncomfortably honest situations in a way few animated movies have before.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 94% Carol (2015) Despite its emotional inaccessibility and overreliance on aesthetics, is still worth a watch for those with maturity and patience.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2016
4/5 81% The Revenant (2015) The Revenant is a caramel-coated macadamia nut, beautiful but difficult to chew. Be prepared, or you'll likely lose a tooth.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2016
2/5 74% The Hateful Eight (2015) The film ... wants to be all things to all people but ends up being not much more than a lost opportunity for greatness.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2015
4/5 74% Youth (2015) It may not be a "great beauty" like the director's previous offering, but it's still one of the prettiest films of the year and proves again that Sorrentino is arguably the most visionary poet in cinema today.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2015
4/5 84% The Walk (2015) With this loving tribute to not just a great piece of performance art but also the buildings that made that art possible, Zemeckis has given us a magical, if flawed, tribute to the fallen symbols of Americana.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2015
85% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) The current Crowd, which is a nice diversion from the summer's CGI extravaganza, should be a crowd pleaser.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
4/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) A grandly magical, if scatterbrained, vision of our future that's neither a time nor a place, but an idea.‐ Orlando Weekly

4/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) Along the way, we learn to appreciate the greatness of Wilson and discover what separated him from the rest of his group.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
3/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) The fourth installment in the Jurassic series is spectacular summer entertainment, a sort of Cecil B. DeMille on speed.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
4/5 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) A quirky yet moving meditation on the life we discover during death.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
4/5 88% Mr. Holmes (2015) A touching, dramatic imagining of the final, feeble days of the super sleuth.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
2/5 45% Irrational Man (2015) Clunky, contrived and embarrassingly overwritten - a philosophical exercise rather than an engaging motion picture.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
1/5 20% Walt Before Mickey (2015) The story is solid, but the screenplay is only partially effective, content to mope along with little joy or whimsy. And scenes resemble re-enactments more than meaningful human encounters.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
4/5 91% The End Of The Tour (2015) A unique, subtle, almost uncomfortably intimate look at the way we perceive ourselves and others.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
2/5 83% Mistress America (2015) The film lurches frenetically from stagey, theatrical farce to quirky tenderness in a failed attempt to charm.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
5/5 73% Everest (2015) In many ways, Everest harkens back to 1970s disaster films, just with smarter editing, more believable performances and better visuals.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
4/5 92% The Final Member (2014) One might expect this film to be nothing but R-rated silliness. Well, it's definitely R-rated, but it has a serious and even touching side.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2015
4/5 50% SlingShot (2015) The doc is much more than a description of a new technology -- it's an examination of why science is not more highly valued in our society.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2015
3/5 51% Gemma Bovery (2015) Though director Anne Fontaine's French-language production is essentially a one-note conceit, it's able to coast on its charm, overcoming its almost total lack of a second act and other story deficiencies.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted May 27, 2015
79% The Theory of Everything (2014) Eddie Redmayne is so convincing as famous physicist Stephen Hawking that you will likely be unable to separate the two men in your mind once this genuinely moving, if slightly maudlin, film flickers to a finish.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
90% The Imitation Game (2014) The Imitation Game has finally given Turing's remarkable legacy the broad cinematic respect it merits by showcasing it proudly in one of the five best films of the year.‐ Orlando Weekly
