Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 26% Mechanic: Resurrection (2016) "Mechanic: Resurrection joins the ranks of Commando, Cobra and Broken Arrow as a cheesy, machismo-drenched guilty pleasure. Shove popcorn in your face and have fun. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Aug 26, 2016
A 96% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) "Kubo is one of the best animated films I've ever seen. If Laika continues to produce films of this quality, we'll have a worthy successor to the great Studio Ghibli. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Aug 16, 2016
B+ 88% Blood Father (2016) "Mel Gibson's grizzled, scruffy ex-con is a revelation, a consistently compelling character caught in a hole he thought he'd already dug himself out of. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Aug 13, 2016
F 9% Nine Lives (2016) "If this wasn't directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, and didn't star Kevin Spacey, I would assume it was attempting to recreate the so-bad-it's-good success that is Sharknado. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Aug 4, 2016
C- 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "The Secret Life of Pets is a beat-for-beat recreation of Toy Story. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jul 6, 2016
F 6% Cell (2016) "If you want a good thriller based on a Stephen King story with the same lead actors, watch 1408 instead. Don't waste your time or money on this dramatically inert film. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jun 13, 2016
A 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "With The Conjuring 2, Wan crafts an unusually strong sequel, filled with more than just scares. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jun 8, 2016
A+ 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "Surprisingly, as a character piece observing two loners who just might be made for each other, The Nice Guys shines far brighter than expected. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 18, 2016
A- 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Like most X-Men films, this is a comic book movie that tells a deeply human story at its roots, making the action set pieces all the more thrilling. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 11, 2016
A 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "10 Cloverfield Lane is a shining example of old-fashioned horror filmmaking, with nearly every scene building upon the last. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Mar 11, 2016
A 89% The Boy And The Beast (Bakemono No Ko) (2016) "The Boy and the Beast continues to solidify Mamoru Hosoda's reputation, and serves as a heartfelt, satisfying reminder that Japanese animation has a bright future. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Mar 5, 2016
B 65% The X-Files: Season 10 (TV, 2016) "Season 10 was messy. Sometimes great, sometimes terrible. In other words, it's just like every single season of The X-Files. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Feb 25, 2016
A- 100% Only Yesterday (2016) "This masterful film undeniably proves that Studio Ghibli was lightyears ahead of everyone else working in animation. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A+ 84% Deadpool (2016) "Justice has finally been done to the "Merc with a Mouth." Is it the next Citizen Kane? No. Is it the perfect Deadpool movie? You bet. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Feb 6, 2016
B 15% Regression (2016) "Regression is eerily old-fashioned, a mystery more concerned with abject paranoia than blood and guts. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Feb 5, 2016
14% Dragonball Evolution (2009) "Dragonball: Evolution is my least-favorite film of all time. I hate it with every fiber of my being. If you were ever curious about the show Dragon Ball or the manga... please, avoid this cinematic disaster at all costs. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Feb 3, 2016
19% Lara Croft - Tomb Raider (2001) "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is incredibly silly. So silly in fact, that you just have to respect it. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Feb 3, 2016
A 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "The Force Awakens leaves us wanting more, which is exactly what it should do. Impressive Abrams, most impressive. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

Posted Oct 18, 2015
B 64% The Visit (2015) "The Visit is Shyamalan's first competent film in almost ten years, featuring terrifically funny work from Ed Oxenbould, and a smart script that plays more like a comical adventure than a horror film. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Sep 9, 2015
F 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "Fantastic Four is an uneventful ride, plunging us into the depths of choppy editing, poor CGI, laughable costume design and one of the worst third acts in the history of superhero films. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Aug 6, 2015
B 79% Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' (2015) "Despite falling back on traditional DBZ clich├ęs, Resurrection 'F' features enough beautifully animated butt-kicking to warrant a watch. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Aug 5, 2015
A- 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "A blast of suspense and intrigue, a great mashup of the best of the original and Ghost Protocol. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

Posted Jul 16, 2015
B+ 81% Ant-Man (2015) "Ant-Man has a suitably small-scale story for its tiny hero, which was a breath of fresh air when compared to the other more bloated entries in the MCU. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jul 14, 2015
C 56% Minions (2015) "The Minions were the funniest aspect of the Despicable Me films. Stretching their supportive roles to feature length has caused their appeal to wear thin. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jul 9, 2015
D+ 16% The Gallows (2015) "A chilling setup gives way to insufferable characters, false scares and a bevy of ear-piercing jolts that shouldn't be confused with terror. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jul 7, 2015
B 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "Similar to its predecessor, the trailers are deceptive. This gorgeously-shot film is far better than the MTV-style marketing it's receiving. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jul 1, 2015
C 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) "Arnold proves he still has what it takes as the iconic title character, but the story around him has become such a convoluted mess, it's difficult to grasp the franchise's storyline now. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

Posted Jun 22, 2015
B 71% Jurassic World (2015) "Despite a disproportionate amount of subplots, and some weak characterizations, Jurassic World is still considerably better than its predecessor, and features lively performances from Pratt and Howard. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jun 10, 2015
A 92% When Marnie Was There (2015) "Studio Ghibli has created a gorgeous animation that digs deep within the darkest fears of childhood, while also weaving a beautiful tale of friendship that knocked me flat. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015
B 58% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "As far as third entries in horror franchises go, Insidious: Chapter 3 is quite impressive. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015

Posted May 30, 2015
C+ 48% San Andreas (2015) "San Andreas is competently assembled and teeming with impressive spectacle but is also emotionally stale. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 29, 2015
A- 51% The Lost World - Jurassic Park (1997) "A remarkably underrated film that's actually improved with age. The FX are still dazzling, the filmmaking is top notch, and please put Jeff Goldblum in everything! " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 26, 2015
C- 31% Poltergeist (2015) "Yet another pointless remake that pales in comparison to the superior original. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 21, 2015
B+ 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Tomorrowland isn't part of a franchise, a sequel or a reboot, so it wins points for originality. The third act is disappointing, but Bird makes the journey joyous and unique. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 19, 2015
A+ 86% Collateral (2004) "A visually striking film from the unhinged, endlessly creative mind of Michael Mann. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 17, 2015
B- 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "Despite stereotypical characters and many flat jokes, the charisma of the cast and energetic direction won me over in the end. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 14, 2015
A+ 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "George Miller has put the modern action film to shame. Simply put, this is the best action movie I've seen so far this decade. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 11, 2015
D- 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) "While watching Hot Pursuit, I struggled to mentally convince myself to remain in the theater. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted May 10, 2015
A+ 78% Predator (1987) "A year before the release of Die Hard, McTiernan captured loads of suspense, terror, and sheer testosterone. They simply don't make them like this anymore. " ‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Posted Apr 29, 2015

Posted Apr 28, 2015
