Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C- 33% The Last Word (2017) The Last Word is unconvincing at every step. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B- 70% Beauty and the Beast (2017) The result is about as good as could have been expected. And it's certainly better than the stage version.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B- 78% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Reilly is jangling with pure electricity ... You'd need something a whole lot more interesting than anything else going on in "Skull Island" to pry your eyes away from him.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B+ 92% Logan (2017) It's the Wolverine movie some fans have been waiting for for nearly two decades.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

A- 99% Get Out (2017) Get out and see it already.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
D+ 40% A Cure For Wellness (2017) There's a very good 80-something-minute movie trapped somewhere in the sprawling morass of A Cure for Wellness, a movie that's at least an hour too long. But as it is, A Cure for Wellness could serve as a cure for insomnia.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B+ 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Lego Batman is crammed full of so many gags, both verbal and visual, you can't possibly catch them all in one viewing.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
D+ 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Everyone involved could have saved so much time and energy by charging triple the price for a ticket and combining all three books into one satisfying movie. Or at least one as satisfying as the source material would allow.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

C- 25% The Comedian (2017) What should have been fertile ground for a movie -- what it's like when you're a star famous for something that happened decades ago -- contains less insight on the subject in two hours than any single episode of Netflix's Bojack Horseman.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
C- 18% Sleepless (2017) What's the point of assembling such a talented cast if you're never really going to let them act?‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2017
C+ 80% Patriots Day (2017) Patriots Day is too little. There's too little new information, too little character development and too little reason for it to exist.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2017
B 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Hidden Figures may be the most entertaining civil rights movie I've ever seen.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
100% Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2017) It's a raw, revealing, hairy-warts-and-all look inside their lives and the Beverly Hills compound... they shared. And it serves as a fitting eulogy for both, only occasionally coming across as more heartbreaking than heartwarming.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2017
B- 40% Why Him? (2016) You know exactly where Why Him? is going from the opening moments, but there are some filthy curves and gonzo detours along the way.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2016
B 93% Fences (2016) Washington's direction leaves Fences feeling powerful yet inert.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2016
A- 89% Jackie (2016) Jackie paints a chilling portrait of the former first lady, spectacularly portrayed by Natalie Portman, in the moments and days after her husband's assassination in Dallas.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
B- 31% Passengers (2016) Passengers offers up some very cool ideas, impressive special effects and important ethical questions. But it just can't overcome the creepy awfulness of that one, easily fixable distraction.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
B 73% Sing (2016) Sing is undeniably fun. The screening I attended even quite literally had children dancing in the aisles.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
B+ 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) The movie works even if you only have a passing knowledge of the Star Wars universe or haven't seen the original in years. But there are several enjoyable callbacks and some eye-popping surprises for die-hard fans.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
B 71% Miss Sloane (2016) Miss Sloane is a gripping tale of gamesmanship, dirty tricks and backroom shenanigans. In the end, it isn't entirely believable, but it's mighty entertaining nonetheless.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2016
B+ 73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) The fashion designer-turned-filmmaker has written and directed a stunning, visually stylish thriller-inside-of-a-thriller about intimacy and revenge. It's also a likely best picture nominee.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2016
B+ 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) Manchester by the Sea is a long, contemplative slice of New England life. It's also a near-lock for a best picture nomination, even though it could stand to lose a good 10 to 15 minutes.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2016
B+ 89% Loving (2016) There's no swelling music, no histrionics, no eloquent speeches, no impassioned pleas. Loving is as workmanlike as bricklayer Richard. And it's all the better for it. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2016
B- 95% Moana (2016) Frozen it ain't. Still, Moana looks fantastic.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2016
C- 55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) It's just not good. At times, it's borderline embarrassing.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2016
D 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) Bad Santa 2 is little more than a string of crude, largely unprintable, one-liners that feel more like they belong in an outtakes reel than a legitimate movie.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2016
27% Army of One (2016) Cage grabs hold of the Faulkner character with all his might and won't let go. Again, much like in that Vince Neil video.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
B 94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is artsy, emotional and comes across like the result of Terrence Malick having spent a weekend watching Interstellar on a loop. It's full of questions, though, and a definite mindscrew that will leave you thinking about [it].‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
97% Moonlight (2016) If you're looking for a moving story, artfully told by a filmmaker on the rise, Moonlight certainly warrants the hype.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
B 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) There's an awful lot of world building to do in "Fantastic Beasts," so future installments - this is the first of a planned five-part series - should run smoother. But there's already plenty to like about Newt and the gang.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2016
B- 74% Trolls (2016) It's essentially a soundtrack -- and a good one at that, led by Timberlake and Anna Kendrick, with contributions from Gwen Stefani -- in search of a story.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2016
B 72% Prometheus (2012) Prometheus is undeniably gorgeous. It's hard to imagine anything looking better, especially with its brilliant 3-D that's well worth the upsell.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
B- 90% Doctor Strange (2016) Even as it closely adheres to the Marvel origin story template, it's the studio's most out-there release yet -- and that's saying something after Guardians of the Galaxy.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2016
C- 19% Inferno (2016) Inferno? More like infernal.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2016
B 71% The Birth of a Nation (2016) Is The Birth of a Nation a great movie? No. But it's a brutally effective one.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2016
B- 44% The Girl on the Train (2016) If The Girl on the Train were a beer, it would be Gone Girl Lite. Sure, it's less filling and watered down. But it will get the job done if you're in a pinch and it's the only thing available.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2016
C- 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) With Burton calling the shots, there's certainly magic in some of the visuals. But overall, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children takes its cue from its monsters. It's ultimately hollow.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
C 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Deepwater Horizon means well. It's both an attempt to explain the root cause of one of the world's worst man-made disasters and salute the heroism that took place on that fateful day. Unfortunately, though, it muddies the waters on both counts.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
B- 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) There isn't anything particularly magnificent about the Seven or the movie itself, even though it makes for a fun, summery popcorn movie in the early days of fall.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
C+ 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) After a promising start, Bridget Jones's Baby gets more nonsensical as it goes, culminating in a ridiculous race to the hospital that should have embarrassed everyone involved.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
B 85% Sully (2016) Sully is a feel-good look at the surreality of instant fame and what it takes to keep it from changing you.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
C 45% Hands of Stone (2016) Hands of Stone simply never connects in the way Duran's legendary punches did.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2016
B+ 87% Don't Breathe (2016) If you're looking for straight-up blood, guts and gore horror, you'll probably be disappointed. But if you're just in the mood for a shockingly good time, don't miss "Don't Breathe.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2016
C 25% Ben-Hur (2016) Ben-Hur is far from the worst movie of the year. It probably won't even be the worst movie of the month. It's just one of the least necessary.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2016
C+ 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) Pete's Dragon is genial and family friendly. But there's entirely too much setup, precious little action, not much magic, and even at 103 minutes it feels at least 20 too long.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2016
B+ 83% Sausage Party (2016) Sausage Party is so wrong, so go-for-broke insane, existing words aren't enough to describe it. Shockrageous comes close. As does horristurbing.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2016
C+ 25% Suicide Squad (2016) The result is not so much Suicide Squad as Death by a Dozen Disappointments Squad.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2016
B 56% Jason Bourne (2016) You don't buy a ticket for a Jason Bourne movie for its social commentary. You do it for the chases and the carnage. And on those counts -- sweet Margaret, mother of mayhem! -- Jason Bourne delivers. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
B- 73% Ghostbusters (2016) Feig and company have done just about as well as they could with this nearly impossible situation. And... the ghouls and specters are mostly first-rate. But just as I ain't afraid of these ghosts, I ain't exactly entertained by them, either.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
B 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Ever wonder what your pets do while you're at work all day? Me neither. But that's the premise of the thoroughly entertaining The Secret Life of Pets.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
