Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 32% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter, like so many other Netflix movies, feels like a first draft that still could use some more punching up and focus.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B- 49% The Meg (2018) Ridiculous, cheesy popcorn fun.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
B+ 97% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Its fiery message couldn't be more timely - and its rage more justified.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
C- 69% Never Goin' Back (2018) The two leads have chemistry and a rebellious sort of charisma. Too bad they're given such wheezy clichés to work with.‐ Entertainment Weekly

C- 45% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) A mirthless, dead-on-arrival dud.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 90% Far From the Tree (2018) All of the families in Far From the Tree are compelling - their trials unimaginable and their spirits indomitable. You'll want to have a box of Kleenex handy.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
B 94% Blindspotting (2018) A timely meditation on what it means to be black and presumed guilty in America.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
C 50% Equalizer 2 (2018) It's hard to argue with McCall's mission, or his brutally crunchy methods. So why does it all feel so unoriginal and grim and dull?‐ Entertainment Weekly

A 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) It delivers. More than that, it's become the rare franchise that seems to just get better, twistier, and more deliriously fun with each installment.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
A 98% Eighth Grade (2018) It's heartbreaking, heartwarming, and a total charmer.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2018
B- 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) There are worse ways to keep your kids busy on a rainy afternoon.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2018
C- 48% Skyscraper (2018) A film that suggests what would happen if you took The Towering Inferno and Die Hard and stripped them of the qualities that made both work.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2018
A- 94% Custody (Jusqu'à la garde) (2018) We've all seen these sorts of domestic bogeymen before in any number of Lifetime movies. But rarely are they presented with the matter-of-fact naturalism that Legrand brings to his Venice Silver Lion winner.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2018
A- 94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) If you dig the handmade surrealism of Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry or the antiestablishment weirdness of Repo Man, then this one is undoubtedly for you.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
A 96% Three Identical Strangers (2018) Three Identical Strangers, is stranger (and wilder and weirder) than most. You really need to see this film to believe it actually happened.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
B- 65% Uncle Drew (2018) It's one of those lightweight summer diversions that's a hundred times funnier than you expect. Which isn't to say it's great - just not as disposable as it could have been.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
B+ 100% Leave No Trace (2018) Granik doesn't spell out the connection between these characters. She doesn't have to. You feel it. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2018
C+ 35% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) It's a disappointingly mild period thriller that's light on thrills. Even Paul Rudd, one of the most likable actors in Hollywood, can't rescue it.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2018
C 0% Gotti (2018) It's not a good movie. But the blame can't be laid at its star's Ferragamo-shod feet.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2018
A 55% Tag (2018) My frontrunner for the funniest movie of the year so far.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
C+ 51% Superfly (2018) The film's strip-club-and-slo-mo aesthetic is yanked right out of any number of hip-hop videos - and also about as deep.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
A- 89% Hereditary (2018) If you're the kind of horror nerd whose cage gets especially rattled by séances, shock scares, and the supernatural, you're in for a hell of a time.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
A 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Looking at the handmade sets now, it's sort of surprising how cheap the show's production values were. But the lessons taught there were priceless.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
B+ 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The less you try to dissect it, the more you'll enjoy it.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
D+ 20% Action Point (2018) Clocking in at a svelte 84 minutes, it still feels about an hour too long.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2018
B 73% Adrift (2018) It's all done expertly and with an unexpectedly deft sleight-of-hand twist in the homestretch that proves once again that Kormakur is the kind of overachieving director that one pigeonholes at their own risk.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
A 85% Downhill Racer (1969) One of the great unheralded films of the late '60s.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 30, 2018
C 39% Mary Shelley (2018) Mary Shelley wants to be a film about artistic creation and female liberation. And, to a degree, it is. But it's so flat and poorly paced that it just feels like a squandered opportunity of monstrous proportions.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
B- 70% Ibiza (2018) More than anything, the film feels a bit like a trial balloon for the relative star power of Jacobs, who's been promoted from best friend to headliner here.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
A- 89% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) Whether he's washing the feet of prisoners in America, visiting sick children in Africa, or praying with hurricane victims in Asia, Pope Francis doesn't merely preach empathy, responsibility, and accountability, he lives it.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
B 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It's the very definition of "solid" and "competent." Nothing more, nothing less.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
B+ 92% Revenge (2018) It's a film that manages to leer at its scantily clad heroine only to eventually make you root for her to dish out as much bloody punishment as possible.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
B+ 94% Beast (2018) Pearce takes his time laying out his sleeping-with-the-enemy tale, but his stinginess with plot lends the film an vice-tightening air of mystery that suits it.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
C- 21% Terminal (2018) This stylish-but-grating pastiche of far better crime flicks is as soft-boiled as they come.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
B- 64% Manhunt (2017) There are enough glimpses of the old master peeking through that it's hard not to have a bit of a good time.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 5, 2018
C 23% The Week Of (2018) The best that can be said about The Week Of is that it at least tacks some heart onto an otherwise stale, mothball-scented set-up.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
B 83% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
B- 54% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2018
C 82% Ghost Stories (2018) With a movie title like Ghost Stories, you'd expect a few decent frights.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2018
C 31% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2018
B+ 86% 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 89% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
C 46% 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- 52% 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 95% 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+ 95% 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 73% 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
