Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 87% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) What saves Infinity War from being just another bloated supergroup tour - and what will end up being the thing that blows fans' minds to dust - is the film's final stretch.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B- 49% Godard Mon Amour (Le redoutable) (2018) Garrel is wonderfully dead-on as the director, Martin manages to convey some of the heartache in watching the man you love turn sour, and the undeniably talented Hazanavicius has fun aping the signature flourishes of Godard's cinematic style.‐ Entertainment Weekly

C 84% Ghost Stories (2018) With a movie title like Ghost Stories, you'd expect a few decent frights.‐ Entertainment Weekly

C 36% Super Troopers 2 (2018) You'd think with 17 years at their disposal these guys would be able to come up with some jokes that weren't so half-baked and dumb. Alas, this is low-hanging fruit all the way.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 94% Tully (2018) Tully takes some daring detours that I didn't see coming. And it's a better, less predictable movie for it.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
B 88% Pass Over (2018) Pass Over won't tell anyone anything they don't already know, but Nwandu is an undeniably talented and timely voice - one that howls to be heard.‐ Entertainment Weekly

C 50% The Devil and Father Amorth (2018) Regardless of whether you were raised in the church and believe in God and the devil, there's a chilling air of taboo voyeurism in all of this.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
B+ 83% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) The movie's biggest revelation - at least it was a revelation to me - is just how alike these two men were beneath their outward personas.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
C- 51% Rampage (2018) I honestly want to be a Dwayne Johnson fan, but the guy doesn't make it easy. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
B 94% Sweet Country (2018) Spare, deliberately paced, and almost Biblical in its search for moral justice in a harsh and lawless landscape.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2018
A- 83% Blockers (2018) Sure, showing that girls can be as horny and impulsive and raunchy as guys isn't exactly the most radical statement. But when it's done this well, it certainly is a welcome change-up.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
B+ 94% Outside In (2018) What elevates this lovely film above the run of the mill is Falco's heartbreaking, note-perfect performance.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2018
B 74% Ready Player One (2018) Steven Spielberg's sci-fi popcorn fantasia Ready Player One feels like a movie made by someone in his 20s rather than his 70s.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
C- 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) If you enjoyed 2013's Pacific Rim but secretly wished it was more like a vapid Transformers sequel, then you'll love Pacific Rim Uprising.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
B+ 22% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) It may still be light years away from a masterpiece like Steven Spielberg's Munich, but it has an urgent tick-tock suspense that's hard to deny.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
C 41% Gringo (2018) On their own, these are all people you'd gladly fork over $10 to watch. Unfortunately, together, in this frenetic, plate-spinning, south-of-the-border caper, they all look a bit lost.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
C 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Red Sparrow couldn't be more timely. If only it were a better movie.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
C 17% Death Wish (2018) It's the absolute wrong movie at the absolute wrong time.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
C 15% Mute (2018) Early trailers made it look like a neon-noir cross between Blade Runner and The Fifth Element. Sadly, it's just another airless dud in red packaging.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
C 36% Nostalgia (2018) A movie that's so manipulative it practically jimmies the tears out of your eyes with a crow bar.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2018
B- 82% Early Man (2018) At least there's director Nick Park's playful Silly Putty visual imagination to take your mind off just how thin the story is.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
B+ 71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) It's like Dead Ringers meets Body Double with a kinky, winking full-frontal Gallic twist.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
B 62% Peter Rabbit (2018) It just happens to be clever, and funny, and moves as fast as a tyke on a sugar bender. If you squint hard enough, you'll also find some of the author's signature generosity and warmth, too.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
D+ 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) It seems embarrassed to embrace its own pervy nature. It's kitsch that looks in the mirror and deludes itself into thinking it sees art staring back.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
B- 54% 12 Strong (2018) It's a rousing movie, but not what you'd call a very introspective one.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
B+ 89% The Insult (L'insulte) (2018) The Insult is an honest and affecting argument for empathy, led by two excellent performances.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
C+ 57% The Commuter (2018) The Commuter is the kind of passable potboiler that may satisfy your junk-food sweet tooth on late-night cable a year from now. But in first run at full price, all you'll end up feeling is taken.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
C- 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) Even Shaye's always-welcome presence can't disguise how little meat there is left on this bone.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
A 73% Hostiles (2018) Westerns can be a tough nut to crack, but Hostiles may be the finest example of the genre since Unforgiven.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
B+ 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) That said, I'd stop short of calling director Rian Johnson's undeniably impressive initiation into the Star Wars fold the masterpiece that some desperately want it to be. The film simply drags too much in the middle.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
C 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) It manages to pull off something I once would have thought was impossible: It makes the original Jumanji look like a beloved cinema classic.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
B 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Once again, Day-Lewis goes deep and has clearly done his homework. The 60-year-old actor doesn't seem to know any other way. In an era of tin-plated movie stars, the world of cinema will miss him.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
B+ 87% The Post (2018) The beauty of Streep's performance (and it's one of her best in years) is how she lets you see her grow into the responsibility of her position. She elevates The Post from being a First Amendment story to a feminist one, too.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2017
A 92% The Shape of Water (2017) It's both weird and wonderful.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
C- 31% Wonder Wheel (2017) For years, the writer-director has returned to the nostalgia-soaked New York of his youth. But in his latest - the turgid, inert Wonder Wheel - he's moving in place as lazily as the Coney Island Ferris wheel of the title.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
B+ 85% Darkest Hour (2017) I don't think we'll ever see anyone else do Churchill this well again unless the man himself comes back from the dead.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
B 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) With his hunched gait, lack of people skills, and idealism built on quicksand, Washington makes you believe in Roman 100 percent.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
A- 96% Mudbound (2017) I'm not quite sure how Rees has done it, exactly, but the depth of heartbreak and humanity in this - just her second feature film - is remarkable.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
C+ 40% Justice League (2017) Some day, hopefully soon, DC will get the recipe right again and duplicate Wonder Woman's storytelling magic. But today isn't that day, and Justice League unfortunately isn't that film.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
B+ 85% Wonder (2017) You're guaranteed to spend nearly two hours with a lump the size of a nectarine in your throat without resenting it.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
C+ 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) This follow-up to 2015's dueling-daddies hit does have a few mild chuckles, but not as many as you want.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
B 77% Last Flag Flying (2017) Last Flag Flying is a modest, bittersweet thing of beauty.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
B- 54% LBJ (2017) The best thing the director has going for him is his star, Woody Harrelson.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
C- 83% My Friend Dahmer (2017) More than a week after watching writer-director Marc Meyers' My Friend Dahmer, I'm still trying to figure out who exactly the film is meant for and why on earth it was made.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
B- 80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) The Killing of a Sacred Deer is haunting and singular and strange, but it's also icy, remote, and too enigmatic.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
B- 84% The Square (2017) It tries so hard to tweak the audience, it virtually breaks a sweat.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
B 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Ragnarok is basically a Joke Delivery System - and on that score, it works. The movie is fun.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
A- 89% 78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene (2017) 78/52 is an orgy for movie obsessives. It makes you see the familiar with fresh eyes.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
B 92% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Smart, relatable, laughter-through-psychic pain entertainment that happens to be elevated by a handful of wonderful performances ...‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
B 98% Lucky (2017) Lucky is an elegiac and ultimately affirming meditation on mortality, regret, and smiling through hardship. You couldn't ask for a more poignant swan song from a more singular artist.‐ Entertainment Weekly
