T-Meter Title | Year
22% Men in Black International (2019) Having Molly guide us back into the supernatural buddy-comedy universe really should've worked. To her credit, Tessa Thompson works very hard to make it work. - Autostraddle EDIT

34% Butter (2012) The entire plot for Butter is the kind of wackadoodle delight that one should really experience with fresh eyes and their feet up on a couch with a bowl junk food at their disposal. - Autostraddle EDIT

91% Widows (2018) It's knotty and tense to watch as all the pieces fall into place, but nonetheless electrifying. - Autostraddle EDIT

74% Boys on the Side (1995) Honestly one of the most beautiful tributes to adult friendships between women that I've seen. - Autostraddle EDIT

91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) A merciful reprieve from the trend of films that, the few times they have lesbian protagonists at all, only serve to remind us of the hellscape that being queer in America can be. - Autostraddle EDIT

96% Black Panther (2018) I want us to love on Black Panther, bravely and openly. But, we cannot forget the asterisk. We cannot forget that a significant achievement for black representation once again came on the back of forced black queer silence. - Autostraddle EDIT
