Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 24% 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

1/5 13% Mute (2018) Skårsgard simply occupies space onscreen. If acting is music, he is noise, a series of vaguely related sounds.‐ Guardian

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+ 60% 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

2/5 88% 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 91% 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

4/5 78% Voyeur (2017) Everyone's at cross purposes, the subjects' words as loaded with unspoken intent as the directors' damning comparative edits.‐ Guardian

2/5 77% 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

2/5 13% Geostorm (2017) We have been sold a false bill of goods.‐ Guardian

3/5 67% Papillon (2017) Hunnam and Malek both hold up their end of the deal. Noer, for his part, meets them halfway ...‐ Guardian

3/5 27% Loving Pablo (2017) 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 96% Journey's End (2018) Keep calm and carry on, right past the marquee.‐ Guardian

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

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

1/5 9% 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

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

68% 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+ 90% 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- 81% The Trip to Spain (2017) The effortless chemistry makes for a supremely pleasant vacation.‐ The Playlist

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
95% 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

5/5 91% Anomalisa (2015) Even after proving himself an unqualified genius time and time again, every new success from Kaufman lands with the emotional weight of the very first time.‐ Nerdist

3/5 61% Legend (2015) If only the movie surrounding the Krays was half as compelling as the men themselves.‐ Nerdist

3/4 61% Yakuza Apocalypse (2015) Yakuza Apocalypse is not for everyone, but is very, very much for some people. ‐ Movie Mezzanine

1/4 87% Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon (2015) If only Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead was a fraction as intelligent or entertaining as its subject. ‐ Movie Mezzanine

4/5 97% Spotlight (2015) The concept of retelling the Spotlight story was so fraught with potential to go horribly, overbearingly awry, and yet McCarthy deftly sidesteps every pitfall with skill.‐ Nerdist

D 10% Stonewall (2015) If "Stonewall" is what it means for Roland Emmerich to make an artist's statement, please, for the love of god, someone start setting up dynamite charges around the Seven Wonders of the World so that he might return to his wheelhouse.‐ The Playlist

B 78% Into The Forest (2016) Though not without its errors, Into The Forest turns a profoundly human eye to what just may be the very end of humanity itself.‐ The Playlist

1/4 35% Dragon Blade (Tian jiang xiong shi) (2015) Basic elements of production that audiences take for granted-fripperies such as coherent editing or logical character behavior-go horribly awry here and make other films look better by comparison. ‐ Movie Mezzanine

1.5/4 39% We Are Your Friends (2015) In the line of succession for Channing Tatum's throne as Hollywood's go-to charismatic bro type, Efron's still pretty far down.‐ Movie Mezzanine
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2015
C+ 41% She's Funny That Way (2015) She's Funny That Way makes for good fun, though it's not necessarily funny in that, or many other, ways. If nothing else, it's heartening to see Bogdanovich back in the saddle.‐ Consequence of Sound

2/4 43% American Ultra (2015) the wasteoid who trails off mid-sentence to get lost in the cover art for Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion, [Nima] Nourizadeh has trouble concentrating on a single organizing narrative mode for his film. ‐ Movie Mezzanine

3/4 91% The End Of The Tour (2015) The End of the Tour is less interested in David Foster Wallace as a mythical titan of culture, and more in the difficult dynamic between interviewer and subject. ‐ Movie Mezzanine

2/4 56% Paper Towns (2015) Paper Towns works better on paper than in practice; its ideas are infinitely preferable to the experience of watching the film.‐ Movie Mezzanine

3/4 86% Trainwreck (2015) Trainwreck is every bit as funny as anything in Apatow's late-2000s run of supremacy in studio comedies...‐ Movie Mezzanine
