Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

A- 100% Prototype (2018) On a soul-deep scale, Williams has tapped into a conflict-the human race's apparent insistence on exterminating itself-and channeled it into material cinematic terms that continuously challenge themselves.‐ AV Club

1/5 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) A one-joke premise with a punchline that's already been told elsewhere, and more sharply. ‐ Guardian

2/5 60% Operation Finale (2018) A film that doesn't have the philosophical depth to back up its analytical ambitions.‐ Guardian

3/5 89% Skate Kitchen (2018) Skate Kitchen falters whenever it starts to act like a movie instead of the observational slice of life that Moselle's so adept at capturing.‐ Guardian

2/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) That Washington is charming enough to disguise McCall's clear streak of Travis Bickle-level sociopathy ranks as this production's greatest asset.‐ Guardian

3/5 30% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) The men of Jody Hill's films contain multitudes, even if they do so from under a perfectly transparent display case.‐ Guardian

1/5 20% Tau (2017) Oldman brings a lack of imagination so complete that he could plausibly explain this performance away as a high-concept ironic joke.‐ Guardian

4/5 49% Superfly (2018) Extravagance acts as its own currency in the stunt-or-be-stunted-upon culture Youngblood vows to fight his way out of, and X fits right in with his penchant for overflowing aesthetic opulence.‐ Guardian

3/5 86% Upgrade (2018) While Whannell wrestles with warring desires to fret over the inevitable techno-oblivion towards which we're currently hurtling or have a laugh about it all, that conflict manifests in a disappointing tonal clash...‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The fans will most assuredly be appeased, and if nothing else, Han Solo will go down in Lucasfilm history as the movie that conclusively affirmed that humans can and do have sex with droids.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

90% Climax (2018) It comes as no surprise, but Noé gonna Noé, and whether that's a positive or negative is an entirely personal distinction.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) With this fiery work of righteous agitprop, Lee's chosen task is to connect the rose-colored racism of the remote past to the shameless bigotry playing out on the streets of our immediate present.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
58% The House That Jack Built (2018) It's a rare and often unsettling experience to watch someone muscle through the ugly, imperfect work of therapy, and von Trier has splayed his innermost demons all over the screen like so much blood spatter.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

3/5 100% The Spy Gone North (2018) Yoon executes all the classic double-agent set pieces with finesse, and those enamoured of the genre will appreciate a change of setting.‐ Guardian

3/5 83% Active Measures (2018) Bryan's done some good and noble work. But until investigative committees provide him with the final act of this story, the rest of us will just have to hold out for the pee tape.‐ Guardian

1/5 20% Game Over, Man! (2018) With its inexplicable combination of phallic revulsion, fascination, and revulsion at its own fascination, this wretched film hates itself more than we ever could.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
1/5 18% The Outsider (2018) If the film's not going to interrogate the politics behind its core premise of an army man's quest to out-Asian actual Asian men, it's scarcely worth telling at all.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
1/5 15% Mute (2018) Skårsgard simply occupies space onscreen. If acting is music, he is noise, a series of vaguely related sounds.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
4/5 100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) Just how good is he? He can singlehandedly spin a Tinder joke, modern comedy's successor to airplane food, into a deeply moving pledge of fidelity, honesty, and responsibility.‐ Guardian

C+ 64% A Futile and Stupid Gesture (2017) While Wain has developed an immunity to the biopic's blustery pretension, he's not so wary of the form's more superficial shortcomings.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
2/5 87% The Post (2018) A film about rushing to meet a deadline that feels like it was made that way.‐ Little White Lies

98% Dina (2017) Sweet without being sappy, the film extends an uncommon empathy to two characters that colder films (and, as we see, people) would treat as a punchline.‐ AV Club

4/5 92% Stronger (2017) Aside from a few mawkish missteps near the tail end, this film feels like the product of a confident, able and self-aware director.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
4/5 81% Voyeur (2017) Everyone's at cross purposes, the subjects' words as loaded with unspoken intent as the directors' damning comparative edits.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2017
2/5 76% Thank You for Your Service (2017) War is hell, it's been said. We should be able to feel the heat.‐ Guardian

D 6% Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (2017) If nothing else, and there really isn't much else, this feature provides a startling glimpse into the interiors of Perry's imagination.‐ AV Club

3/5 30% Loving Pablo (2018) Like Escobar himself remaking the coca business in a bold, new and highly lucrative vision, Bardem and Cruz succeed by doing things their unique way.‐ Guardian

2/5 93% Journey's End (2018) Keep calm and carry on, right past the marquee.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
2/5 56% Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! (2017) A smug odyssey of know-it-all-ism that yields a scant few factoids we didn't already learn from his first film.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) One bowl of reheated Joseph Campbell's soup, a transparent bid to be the next Lord of the Rings that can't back up its sense of portentousness with the required epic sweep.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
1/5 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) A viewer leaves The Emoji Movie a colder person, not only angry at the film for being unconscionably bad, but resentful of it for making them feel angry.‐ Guardian

3/5 90% Girls Trip (2017) Paired with a few good friends and a strong beverage or two, it's an absolute scream.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2017
92% Dunkirk (2017) For his next, and possibly greatest trick, Nolan has whipped up a war movie fearful of and resistant to combat itself, instead preoccupied with the rough interplay between duty and fear.‐ Polygon
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2017
No Score Yet T.J. Miller: Meticulously Ridiculous (2017) The comedian is like the last guy at the bar, a wasted loudmouth who you can't help but love because you're in his good graces. His principled rants just so happen to have better punchlines.‐ Rolling Stone

5/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) The adrenaline high of this clean getaway lasts for days.‐ Little White Lies

74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) [It] will make for a marvelous theme park attraction someday. But as a movie, as a vessel for narrative and ideas enacted by recognizably human characters, it fails to tap into the same simple potency that Harry and Co. wielded from book one.‐ Polygon

67% Alien: Covenant (2017) While it may sometimes exceed its own reach, Covenant extends a grasp so impressively audacious, it might as well come from a director with nothing to lose.‐ Polygon

B+ 88% Get Me Roger Stone (2017) The man's a black hole of self-interest and hatred. Get Me Roger Stone is never more effective than when staring directly into that hole, drowning its audience in the black.‐ The Playlist

3/5 83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) The introduction of family bonds as a unifying theme represents Gunn's most decisive break from the original's winning formula. Aside from that, the second verse is same as the first.‐ Metro

A- 82% The Trip to Spain (2017) The effortless chemistry makes for a supremely pleasant vacation.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2017
81% Actor Martinez (2017) Actor Martinez is more like a dense work of film criticism that plays like a movie, and an enjoyable one at that. ‐ Uproxx

5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) A personal/political triptych which offers keen perspectives on masculinity, queer sexuality, racial identity, and the odd angles at which they intersect.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2017
96% Train to Busan (Busanhaeng) (2016) A zombie movie content not to aspire to any loftier subtextual readings needs little more than a skilled choreographer of action, and there's plenty of evidence that this film had one in Yeon.‐ AV Club

30% The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016) A graduate of the High School Musical school of filmmaking (literally), Ortega is also the person responsible for many of the glaring problems here.‐ Rolling Stone

37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) If your only desire as a moviegoer is to feel something, anything, then Cohen's nearly-hostile intentness on being stickier, smellier, and crasser than anyone else in wide release might get your blood pumping.‐ Uproxx

0% The Ridiculous 6 (2015) Defined by the insubstantial amateurishness most frequently found on low-level Vine accounts, The Ridiculous Six practically erases the memory of the A-list Adam Sandler who starred in widely beloved, reliably bankable comedies.‐ Uproxx

3/4 95% Creed (2015) As Creed's rough-hewn boxer Donnie "Adonis" Johnson (née Creed), Jordan is granted another career-making role by [Ryan] Coogler.‐ Movie Mezzanine
