Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
D+ 55% 47 Meters Down (2017) Just consider it shark weak.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

C- 65% Cars 3 (2017) Cars 3 is basically Rocky IV -- minus the geopolitics and that glorious James Brown production number -- with a little of The Karate Kid thrown in, along with pretty much every sports movie cliche ever.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

D 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The Last Knight is pretty much everything you'd expect from a Transformers movie. Stuff whizzes by, bursting into flames, in a jumbled blur of random images, noises and good old-fashioned gibberish.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

C+ 15% The Mummy (2017) Despite all these connections, no one seemed to realize they were writing a script that, aside from a plane-crash sequence filmed in zero gravity, plays to exactly none of Cruise's strengths. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

C+ 86% It Comes At Night (2017) Throughout its brief 97-minute run time, It Comes at Night seems to be building to something that simply isn't there. If movies were still shown on film, you'd swear the final reel was missing.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Patty Jenkins proves what a talented director can do with a superhero movie. She and Gadot also contribute touches that only women can.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is so convoluted, it feels like the first seafaring adventure from The Da Vinci Code's Dan Brown.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

19% Baywatch (2017) Dragged down by the weight of its many conflicting ideas, "Baywatch" flails about like a drowning victim that's incapable of rescue, ultimately leaving a bloated corpse of a movie washed ashore at the multiplex.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

71% Alien: Covenant (2017) It's nowhere near as bad as Life, this spring's other alien-running-amok-on-a-spacecraft movie. But for a franchise known for things bursting out of people's chests, this one will barely elevate your heart rate.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

72% The Wizard of Lies (2017) While it's a relief to once again see De Niro in a quality project that has nothing to do with Martin Scorsese or David O. Russell,The Wizard of Lies' greatest special effect is Pfeiffer.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B- 69% The Wall (2017) Despite a couple of clever twists, The Wall, from Amazon Studios, is so very intimate, it's the sort of thing you'd be far more likely to enjoy if you stumbled across it on Amazon Prime rather than if you paid to see it in a theater.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

C+ 36% Snatched (2017) Snatched isn't a great movie. Large parts of it barely even make sense. But it made me laugh, and that's saying something.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
B- 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Legend of the Sword is a stylish affair. Not only is it blessed with some visually impressive fight scenes, its wardrobe choices are inspired.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
81% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Worse than occasionally being a downer, Vol. 2 is something Guardians of the Galaxy never was: dull, often for long stretches.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The Fate of the Furious has plenty of callbacks to previous movies for die-hard fans to enjoy, and it's the franchise's most entertaining installment since at least Fast Five.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
B 67% Free Fire (2017) Director Ben Wheatley, who co-wrote the script with Amy Jump, stages the sensational, real-time carnage as a parody of gun violence, and the result is a wonderful surprise. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
D+ 46% Going in Style (2017) For the most part, this Going in Style isn't going much of anywhere, and certainly not in style.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
C 51% The Boss Baby (2017) There's just not enough there to sustain interest.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
C- 34% The Last Word (2017) The Last Word is unconvincing at every step. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
B- 71% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
B- 76% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
B+ 93% Logan (2017) It's the Wolverine movie some fans have been waiting for for nearly two decades.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
A- 99% Get Out (2017) Get out and see it already.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
D+ 42% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
B+ 90% 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+ 10% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
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- 21% 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 75% 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+ 74% 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- 96% 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 93% 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
98% 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 73% 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
