Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Limo Ride (2016) Riotously entertaining for something based on a bunch of guys talking about something that happened a long time ago that means very little to anyone outside that group. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 23, 2016
67% Rats (2016) Rats is the best horror documentary in terms of using the genre infusion only as a well-orchestrated gimmick and vehicle for interesting nonfiction characters and stories. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 23, 2016
61% Snowden (2016) While the romantic narrative seems most important, the more predominant love story at the core of the movie is that of the director and his subject. Or at his subject. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 15, 2016
85% Sully (2016) Offers a thrilling ride but crashes in the end. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 5, 2016
50% Pete's Dragon (1977) Unique and badly directed. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 18, 2016
25% Ben-Hur (2016) Shows signs of great intentions but never achieves any exceptional moments. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 18, 2016
4/5 76% The Lovers And The Despot (2016) The doc, however, with its editorial choices, is surely the most discerning and profound outlet for this extraordinary tale. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Aug 5, 2016
3/5 89% Miss Sharon Jones! (2016) You can miss Miss Sharon Jones! but you won't hate yourself for checking it out if you do. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jul 29, 2016
15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Looks and plays so crudely next to almost every other animated feature released this year. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 22, 2016
4/5 91% Zero Days (2016) Alex Gibney's most thrilling, chilling and fulfilling film in years. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jul 11, 2016
2/5 85% Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You (2016) The doc is not hagiographic, at least, but it still feels awfully soft for a guy who had guts as strong as his. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jul 7, 2016
36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) The best-looking bad superhero movie of the year. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 30, 2016
1/5 40% Misconception (2016) This not just an ineffective doc but a disappointment all around, with the most uniforming aspect being that it's got faults in every element of its making. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jun 25, 2016
2/5 29% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) These movies just don't get Carroll at all, but most viewers don't mind. ‐
Posted May 25, 2016
4.5/5 90% The Lobster (2016) The best romantic satire since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. ‐
Posted May 24, 2016
4/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) Just as funny as the original and far more essential. ‐
Posted May 20, 2016
4/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) You need to see The Nice Guys for, hands down, the greatest comedic performance of the year. It belongs to Ryan Gosling. ‐
Posted May 20, 2016
2.5/5 57% Money Monster (2016) Money Monster does get really dumb the further it goes on and the more it needs to end up at some neatly delivered conclusion. ‐
Posted May 16, 2016
4/5 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) Adults with brains also want some visceral entertainment sometimes, and this latest English-language feature from Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino does just the trick. ‐
Posted May 16, 2016
3.5/5 43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) It's not entirely mindless fun on the level of the game, but it is just simple, goofy entertainment. ‐
Posted May 16, 2016
3/5 19% Mothers and Daughters (2016) While Mothers and Daughters is not a great movie by any measure, for an ensemble feature tied to Mother's Day, it certainly could have been a lot worse. ‐
Posted May 5, 2016
2.5/5 17% Ratchet & Clank (2016) The sort of movie where characters aren't so much developed as merely designed and then plainly labeled, defined solely by physical appearance and descriptive monikers. ‐
Posted Apr 29, 2016
3/5 76% Keanu (2016) The contrast of the cutest creature ever seen against the bloody world of gangbangers is mostly clever juxtaposition. ‐
Posted Apr 27, 2016
1.5/5 7% Mother's Day (2016) The kind of movie where even if you enjoy some of the trite humor you still believe that most of the actors on screen are too good to be there. ‐
Posted Apr 27, 2016
2.5/5 77% Elvis & Nixon (2016) It's clear the director, Liza Johnson, didn't have a good grip on whatever Elvis & Nixon is supposed to be, and perhaps she wasn't even sure herself. ‐
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) If you like Frozen but wish it was more sexually suggestive, then The Huntsman: Winter's War is for you. ‐
Posted Apr 21, 2016
4/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) If 10 Cloverfield Lane is to be considered a sequel, it's one that's even better than the original. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
2.5/5 43% Miracles from Heaven (2016) It's far from the worst of its genre. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
1.5/5 33% The Bronze (2016) Falling short in every way, The Bronze places last in the game of film comedy. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
2.5/5 30% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) Feels like a show that's been on the air for 14 years, and we're just tuning in randomly for a season finale, while at times it also feels like a show trapped in the past. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
4/5 86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) You'll have as much fun deciding on a favorite bit of dialogue or scene as you do choosing a favorite character. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
4.5/5 83% Midnight Special (2016) Very likely the best sci-fi movie of the year. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
3.5/5 22% The Boss (2016) McCarthy puts on a good show, whether you prefer absurdly implausible slapstick or shocking insults or awkward and comically violent gags involving female anatomy. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
3.5/5 30% Criminal (2016) The movie itself grows and develops a conscience and changes along with its main character, which is an amazing idea. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
2.5/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) A weird movie that wants for so much realism, including the most photorealistic CG talking animals we've ever seen, when there's nothing real about talking animals, period. ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2016
C+ 44% Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru (2016) It seems like an infomercial, but its intentions are hardly different from any other doc's. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 18, 2016
B+ 79% Unlocking the Cage (2016) A flawless yet otherwise unremarkably straightforward piece of nonfiction storytelling. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 18, 2016
22% The Boss (2016) The Boss can be a very flawed movie while still being hilarious. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 7, 2016
B+ 94% Tickled (2016) Weird, funny, mysterious and controversial ... the further it digs the more surprising and strange it gets. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 27, 2016
4/5 91% City Of Gold (2016) It may only offer an illusion of understanding its subjects, but it suggests that Gabberts has full comprehension, which may also be an illusion but is good enough either way. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Mar 21, 2016
B- 82% Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016) Doesn't disappoint unless your anticipation is unrealistic. If you expect anything but a mix of the familiar and more light comedy on a made-for-TV scale, that's too bad. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 18, 2016
B+ 98% Zootopia (2016) "A very clever movie with the sort of meticulous world building that's ripe for the spawning of inventive humor." ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 29, 2016
3/5 93% The Last Man On The Moon (2016) Offers a different sort of space travel than expected, taking us into a man's headspace, which may not be as exciting but seems to be a more interesting place than the Moon. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Feb 26, 2016
B 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) One of the duo's most intricately and wholly thematic movies, and yes, one of their least satisfying in its superficial narrative. Also, extremely silly. Even for the Coens. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 3, 2016
A- 100% Cameraperson (2016) A clever and fascinating self-portrait. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 2, 2016
4/5 96% Gleason (2016) The director of Finders Keepers proves again that he's brilliant at balancing the devastating and the hilarious. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jan 30, 2016
1/5 45% The Blackout Experiments (2016) A terribly ineffective nonfiction horror film. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jan 27, 2016
4/5 100% Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang (2016) "Few documentaries about an artist need to make you appreciate the person. This one does. It's an endearing portrait of someone with a lot of integrity and humanity." ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jan 26, 2016
5/5 81% Kate Plays Christine (2016) People will be talking about how it blurs the line between narrative and nonfiction, but the more remarkable thing it does is smooth over the lines of documentary form. ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jan 26, 2016
3/5 87% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "The best thing Kate Hudson has done in 16 years." ‐ Film School Rejects
