T-Meter Title | Year
1/5 58% Greta (2019) In the title role, Isabelle Huppert is miscast, mediocre and never in the least bit scary. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

1.5/5 60% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Too underdeveloped, derivative and poorly scripted for adults, and too violent and adult-oriented for children. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2019
3/5 63% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Velvet Buzzsaw is a refreshingly offbeat and irresistibly quirky comedy, with a dash of drama and a heap of horror. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

2/5 92% Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018) A cold, passionless, underwritten tale of a relationship wrecked by circumstance. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
4/5 93% Stan & Ollie (2019) Featuring uncannily transportive performances by Steve Coogan as Laurel and John C. Reilly as Hardy, Stan & Ollie is one of the most magical films of the last year. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3/5 37% Glass (2019) Glass glints just enough for a drink. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3.5/5 33% Welcome to Marwen (2018) Admittedly, a couple of plot points either go unresolved or fall flat, but the story itself is emotionally powerful. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3/5 73% On the Basis of Sex (2019) Though the film, unlike its subject, is neither exceptional nor surprising, this juror is returning a thumbs-up verdict. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2019
4/5 81% Ben is Back (2018) A powerful, personal tale of a young man in the throes of addiction, with only his mom to help him. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2018
4.5/5 96% Roma (2018) Roma is one of the year's best movies. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3.5/5 93% The Favourite (2018) Lanthimos' production is one of the most beautiful and intriguing of the year - though it's unlikely to be your favorite. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

4/5 78% Green Book (2018) Mortensen is simply wonderful, bringing accessibility and humor to a role that, in another actor's hands, might have been relegated to a meathead racist stereotype. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2018
3.5/5 81% Boy Erased (2018) [A] slightly predictable but nevertheless meaningful portrait of a depraved belief system. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2018
2/5 91% Widows (2018) The cinematic equivalent of a half-baked turducken. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
3/5 91% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) The Coens... have experimented with shorts before (just not in their own theatrically released feature). But, as usual, they make it seem fresh. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
3.5/5 78% The Last Suit (El último traje) (2018) The film succeeds on both a metaphorical and literal level thanks to clever writing and Miguel Ángel Solá, who gives the festival's best performance. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
3/5 100% Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me (2017) Sammy's spirit and talent does shine through. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet Laces (2018) By the end, expect a punch in the emotional gut. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel (2018) It falls flat both journalistically and cinematically. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
3/5 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) The film is the cinematic equivalent of a rudimentarily assembled greatest-hits compilation when we instead needed a collection of deep album cuts. Nevertheless, Rhapsody will rock you. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
58% White Boy Rick (2018) The production design is... impressive and, when combined with the pitch-perfect performances, overcomes a screenplay that is somewhat uneven, especially in its final act. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
2/5 77% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) Van Sant seems to employ disjointed editing as a stylistic crutch. That style might come across as challenging or charming to some viewers, but it lessens the emotional impact and breeds unnecessary narrative confusion. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
3/5 87% Colette (2018) Colette succeeds, despite its flaws, because of Knightley's powerhouse performance, Michael Carlin's sumptuous production design and Giles Nuttgen's sensual cinematography. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3.5/5 92% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) Redford... is eminently enjoyable, infusing his character with relatability and humor. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
4.5/5 87% First Man (2018) Thanks to the abundance of space movies, Chazelle isn't left with many new things to say, but he does find new ways to say them. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
89% A Star Is Born (2018) Every generation needs its Star, and the latest version - starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga - is a worthwhile addition to the series. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2018
4/5 65% The Little Stranger (2018) This unexpectedly deep film leaves you thinking - not just about the destiny of its characters but the destiny of England. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
3/5 83% Juliet, Naked (2018) Juliet, Naked is often thoughtful, sweet and complicated. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
2/5 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Structurally flawed, conceptually challenged and tonally troubled. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
3/5 89% Whitney (2018) What sets Whitney apart is the extraordinary cooperation of the singer's family, friends and collaborators, who often stare straight into the camera with an intensity rarely seen in documentary filmmaking. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

2/5 91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Despite the film's sweetness and comfortable familiarity, Haley's ambition has overwhelmed his ability. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
4/5 93% First Reformed (2018) For Schrader, ideas are paramount, and he packs in plenty, none less profound than the proposition that, to survive, we must hold hope and despair in our minds simultaneously. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
3/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 is funny. Maybe not quite as funny as the first film, but the barrage of jokes - some obscured because the audience was still laughing at the last one - should stand up to multiple viewings. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
4/5 86% Tully (2018) As usual, Cody's dialogue crackles, but never for the sake of mere amusement. Her insightful subtext stays with you after the laughs fade. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
91% Lean on Pete (2018) Though it carries a strong animal-rights message, Lean on Pete is one of the most human films you'll see this year. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
4.5/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One might be the best film of 2018 so far. At the very least, it's the most fun you'll have at the movies anytime soon. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
3/5 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Anderson might have been a better production designer than director. But there's no denying he's perfectly suited to stop-motion, which allows him to play (literally) with myriad characters and sets. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
2/5 80% Unsane (2018) The best one can say about Soderbergh's failed experiment is it's probably the most attractive film ever shot with a phone. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2018
93% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) A film that honors gender identity while challenging our notion of what it means to be transgender. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
3/5 80% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) It's Annette Bening who powers the film, holds our interest and makes us care about a woman heretofore mostly unknown to us. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
4/5 93% The Peacemaker (2018) It's that rare doc that successfully blends a newsworthy subject (international peace negotiations) with an intimate portrait. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2018
4.5/5 88% The Post (2018) It is the greatest newspaper movie since All the President's Men, the best film about journalism since 1987's Broadcast News and Spielberg's finest since Saving Private Ryan two decades ago. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2018
3/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) For all the sumptuous style and lush visuals, The Shape of Water is, at its heart, a simple fish-out-of-water story, both figuratively and literally. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2018
4/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Aforementioned imperfections notwithstanding, Condon and his team have breathed new life into a "tale as old as time." - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2017
1.5/5 85% It (2017) The film's greatest failing is one of tone. It wants to be horror, comedy, comedy-horror and coming-of-age dramedy in the vein of Stand by Me, but it never successfully becomes any of those. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2017
97% Columbus (2017) An impressive and sometimes mesmerizing directorial debut. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 26, 2017
4.5/5 84% Darkest Hour (2017) A visual symphony of performance, pacing, editing, cinematography and music that only Wright and perhaps three or four other directors are capable of conducting. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
2/5 77% Last Flag Flying (2017) Lands awkwardly somewhere between comedy and drama, and nowhere near the poignancy toward which it was striving. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
3.5/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) What really sets the film apart from the recent slate of abysmal holiday fare is its sweetness, good intentions and solid supporting performances. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
4/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Just when we thought the stale "coming-of-age" film was on a precipitous slide, along comes the most unlikely of lifelines. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
