Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

4.5/5 73% 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

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

2/5 78% 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

94% 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

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

4/5 92% The Peacemaker (2018) It's that rare doc that successfully blends a newsworthy subject (international peace negotiations) with an intimate portrait.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2018
4.5/5 87% 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

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

4/5 70% 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
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

98% Columbus (2017) An impressive and sometimes mesmerizing directorial debut.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 26, 2017
4.5/5 85% 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
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
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

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

4.5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) If you don't value the artistry of Blade Runner 2049, you might not be human.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2017
5/5 84% Loving Vincent (2017) It took them and a team of more than 100 artists over six years to hand-paint the film's 65,000 frames. The wait was worth it, as their creation is the best animated film of the century.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2017
4/5 92% Stronger (2017) Jake Gyllenhaal is superb as Bauman and deserves an Academy Award nomination for best actor.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
1.5/5 29% I Do... Until I Don't (2017) The film's most noticeable failure is its inability to say anything interesting or original about marriage, or even explore the documentary's idea of placing a time limit on matrimony.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
2/5 33% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) Turner grins, squints, mumbles, vocal-fries and sleepwalks through a performance that would make James Franco fawn. This living boy is bereft of life and, by contagion, robs the film of passion and relatability.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
3/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) A Ghost Story longs to be a commentary on human legacy, loss and existence. It never fully achieves that goal, but it is nevertheless worth enduring aesthetically to reach what it's positing philosophically.‐ Orlando Weekly

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
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2017
3.5/5 74% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2017
3/5 84% 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

45% 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
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
3.5/5 45% 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
Read More | Posted May 3, 2017
2/5 37% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2017
75% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
1.5/5 12% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
2/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) The smart, surreal premise slowly, slowly unravels into schlock.‐ Orlando Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2017
24% 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 76% 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 88% 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
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
3.5/5 86% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2016
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
57% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2016
44% 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 86% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
2/5 70% 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 52% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2016
3/5 86% 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 29% 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
