Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 49% The Glass Castle (2017) A film that never quite clicks tonally and doesn't do justice to its harrowing central story.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 86% Wind River (2017) [Sheridan's] storytelling is meaty but efficient, and his pacing moves along at a steadily engrossing clip.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 33% Fun Mom Dinner (2017) These are indeed moms, and they do have dinner, but the 'fun' part is in short supply.‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 5% The Last Face (2017) Sean Penn turns African strife into a two-hour perfume commercial with The Last Face, veering between gauzy impressionism and shrieky melodrama with his latest directorial effort.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 45% Person to Person (2017) A solid cast whose talents mostly go to waste and a movie that meanders from one moment to the next without much momentum.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 100% Swim Team (2017) Swim Team is a sports movie full of familiar highs and lows, great expectations and come-from-behind victories.‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 17% The House (2017) The rare raunchy comedy that actually could have stood to be a little longer-and not just by padding the running time with outtakes.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 98% The Big Sick (2017) Again and again, [Showalter] finds that laughter-through-tears sweet spot, often in the unlikeliest of places.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 48% Rough Night (2017) A dead man is at the center of Rough Night, but the women forced to deal with him never feel truly alive.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 78% The Hero (2017) Elliott could sell us anything, or course -- barbecue sauce, whatever -- just by showing up and being his formidable, glorious self. But he could use some meatier material.‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 44% Vincent N Roxxy (2017) A nasty little piece of B-movie trash that lacks both the verve to grab you as a guilty pleasure and the artistry to be taken seriously as a dramatic thriller.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
3/4 74% Berlin Syndrome (2017) Australian director Cate Shortland creates a dreamlike sense of place within a nightmare scenario with this taut and strongly acted thriller.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 55% Lowriders (2017) There's an earnestness and a fundamental truth to this familial saga-as well as an appealing, low-budget scrappiness-that consistently make it hum.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
2/4 35% Snatched (2017) As an exercise in afternoon cable-channel surfing while dozing in and out from cold medication, it's harmless. But as a summer-launching comic adventure, it's a frustrating waste of everyone's abilities. ‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 31% 3 Generations (2017) Takes on the topic of gender dysphoria with a talented cast but not much to say.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
3/4 72% Sleight (2017) [Latimore] has a magnetic screen presence mixed with a down-to-Earth directness. And while he's got swagger for days, he's just as compelling when his character is quietly contemplating his next move.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 26% Unforgettable (2017) Slick, glossy and radiating juicy villainy, it knows exactly what kind of movie it is and goes for it with giddy abandon.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 89% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) In Richard Gere's deft, veteran hands, Norman Oppenheimer is consistently, completely fascinating. You may not be able to root for him, but you can't help but feel for him.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 46% Going in Style (2017) Its stars are such pros, they're so enormously charismatic and have such lovely chemistry with each other, it's hard not to be charmed by their mere presence on screen.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
3/4 65% Carrie Pilby (2017) As the title character, Bel Powley is so enormously compelling that she breathes life into Carrie's quirks and the story's contrivances.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
2/4 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) An opportunity to wallow in grimy nostalgia seems to be its sole purpose.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
2.5/4 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) A film that's well-acted but tastefully restrained to a fault, with gentle humor about aging and a central mystery that isn't all that engaging.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
3.5/4 90% Raw (2017) Ducournau's lurid, vivid film is visually striking, full of images that will shock you while others will lull you with a hypnotic beauty.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 65% As You Are (2017) Joris-Peyrafitte shows confidence and talent beyond his years, with an artful eye for imagery and a truthful ear for dialogue.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 72% XX (2017) If XX is trying to make some sort of statement, it's not doing so with much clarity or power.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
2.5/4 83% A United Kingdom (2017) A United Kingdom is well made and well-intentioned. But Asante is also saddled with a script from Guy Hibbert that spells out everything for the audience.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
1.5/4 17% The Space Between Us (2017) The twists are just unbearably ridiculous, which drains all the power out of their supposed catharsis.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
3/4 74% Split (2017) A rare, straight-up horror film from Shyamalan, Split is a thrilling reminder of what a technical master he can be.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2017
1/4 9% The Book Of Love (2017) Filled with contrivances, false emotions and even flimsier accents, it strains mightily to tug at our heartstrings while also enticing us with whimsy, and fails on both fronts.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
2.5/4 92% I, Daniel Blake (2017) I, Daniel Blake is an extremely Ken Loach-y Ken Loach film, for better and for worse.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 40% Why Him? (2016) After an increasing cavalcade of flatly crass visual gags featuring high-tech toilets, moose urine and poorly-timed sexual shenanigans, Why Him? collapses the way so many R-rated comedies do.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/4 86% Two Lovers and a Bear (2016) Beautiful and thoroughly unpredictable; you never know where Nguyen is going with this story, including the chilling, sci-fi/horror direction he heads in toward the film's climax.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
3.5/4 96% Moana (2016) Moana would have been enormously entertaining regardless of when it came out, but its arrival at this particular moment in history gives it an added sense of significance-as well as inspiration.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) The Edge of Seventeen is a delight, with Hailee Steinfeld serving as the radiant star at its center.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
1/4 0% My Dead Boyfriend (2016) A mixture of misplaced gallows humor, wildly over-the-top caricatures and a gimmicky use of animation.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2016
3/4 84% The Ivory Game (2016) A documentary that plays with the gripping pacing and glossy production values of a suspenseful, international thriller.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2016
2/4 19% Inferno (2016) The multiple twists, double-crosses and leaps in logic are more likely to prompt giggles than gasps.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2016
.5/4 0% Max Steel (2016) A movie based on a toy should be a whole lot more fun than this.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
3.5/4 97% Aquarius (2016) It may feel like it drags a bit in the middle, but Aquarius has so many individual moments of grace that it rewards you for sticking around.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
1.5/4 43% The Girl on the Train (2016) A flat and suspense-free tale of pretty people in peril.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2016
1.5/4 63% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) The latest from Tim Burton would seem tailor-made for his tastes but it's a convoluted slog, dense in mythology and explanatory dialogue but woefully lacking in thrills.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/4 64% Storks (2016) Zippy and zany, cute and cuddly, Storks manages to balance wild humor with winning heart-for the most part.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
3/4 88% Other People (2016) "Other People" breathes new life into the formulaic, dark comedy about death.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2016
2.5/4 40% The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016) Either you'll be willing to go with some of its wilder visual conceits or you won't. (I was, for the most part.)‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 45% Hands of Stone (2016) In trying to encompass way too much, Hands of Stone ends up feeling superficial and unsatisfying.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2016
3.5/4 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) It's a classic hero's journey full of action and adventure, but it's also an intimate fable about love and loss, magic and memory.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2016
2.5/4 79% Joshy (2016) You probably wouldn't want to spend that much time with these people yourself, but at least they're never boring.‐ RogerEbert.com
