Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
83% The Armstrong Lie (2013) "To use a phrase from the film, The Armstrong Lie is a "myth-buster." It's wholly necessary, brilliantly executed, and a complete bummer. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 5, 2013
No Score Yet Billy & Buddy (2013) "The filmmakers do find a clever way to incorporate Roba's original Boule et Bill art into the plot, yet any one of those classic doodles has more vibrancy than this unappealing adaptation. " ‐ Village Voice

29% Hellbenders (2013) "Aided by capable if unnecessary 3D effects, Petty displays a flair for staging violent action, but he's trapped inside a broad comic set-up that doesn't mesh with the story's innate meanness. " ‐ Village Voice

58% Pulling Strings (2013) "This bilingual romantic comedy is overly long and has a paper-thin plot, but it's too sweet-natured to dislike. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Oct 3, 2013
61% The Summit (2013) "It's a noble effort, but by wading into the murky waters of who acted heroically, and who, perhaps, did not, Ryan loses touch with the mountain itself ... " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Oct 1, 2013
68% Haute Cuisine (2013) "Writer-director Christian Vincent and co-writer Étienne Comar, aided by Frot's quiet intensity, imbue Hortense's quest to pull off culinary miracles with an urgency that's almost absurdly compelling, and all the more entertaining for it. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Sep 17, 2013
No Score Yet Dead Before Dawn 3D (2013) "Overlong but amusing ... " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Sep 3, 2013

79% Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013) "Lowery isn't a Malick and he's certainly no Kazan, but he's his own man, and a filmmaker to watch. " ‐ Village Voice

93% This Is Martin Bonner (2013) "By calling on his leads to underplay nearly every moment, Hartigan calls into question our deeply ingrained instinct, as moviegoers, to witness a steady parade of amped-up emotions. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 13, 2013
70% Terraferma (2013) "It's all very predictable, very Hollywood. Storytelling cliché, it would seem, knows no borders. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 23, 2013
63% The Rise (Wasteland) (2013) "Athale has a flair for guy-pal banter; here, the talk is funny and profane, silly and profound, often in the same breath. " ‐ Village Voice

93% Still Mine (2013) "[A] pitch-perfect, deeply affecting film ... " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 10, 2013

Posted Jul 2, 2013
25% Rapture-Palooza (2013) "Should please those who own Shaun of the Dead on Blu-ray, and can quote one-liners from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the novel, not the film). " ‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet From The Head (2013) "A remarkably assured debut. " ‐ L.A. Weekly

Posted Apr 10, 2013
52% Lucky Bastard (2014) "Although it takes Nathan a bit too long to get his characters to Van Nuys, knowing in advance that Dave is likely to snap not only creates suspenseful dread, but ultimately makes the moviegoer complicit in the violence (which is believably haphazard). " ‐ L.A. Weekly
Posted Apr 8, 2013
61% Evil Dead (2013) "The plotting as a whole feels fresh, as does the emphasis on women strong enough to defend themselves. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 3, 2013

Posted Feb 27, 2013
47% Bullet to the Head (2013) "Stallone looks great (even if his face doesn't quite move when he talks), while Hill brings lean economy to the film's bloody, unapologetic mayhem. " ‐ Village Voice

Posted Oct 19, 2012
84% The Flat (2012) "In families, this fascinating film suggests, acknowledging or denying the darker truths of one's legacy is a choice that must be made again and again, each and every day. " ‐ Village Voice

40% Nobody Walks (2012) "Evocative ... " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Oct 16, 2012
18% Smiley (2012) "Smiley's face, or lack of one, is the single creepy effect in the limited trick bag of first-time writer-director Michael Gallagher, age 24, who otherwise relies, again and again, on false-scare musical shrieks to make audiences jump. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Oct 9, 2012
85% End of Watch (2012) "As social insight, End of Watch is useless, but as engrossing entertainment, it's irresistible, thanks to Ayer's gift for dialogue, the relentless pacing set by film editor Dody Dorn, and gorgeous performances by Gyllenhaal and Peña ... " ‐ Village Voice

5% Hick (2012) "Too odd to be funny, too cold-hearted to be tragic, Hick is an infuriating muddle. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 8, 2012
24% Jesus Henry Christ (2012) "Making their screen debuts, young Spevack and Weinstein give the film's most natural performances and provide its little bit of warmth, but it seems time to petition Collette, a truly gifted actress, to take a long hiatus from playing bitter single moms. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 1, 2012
20% The Lucky One (2012) "No amount of neck nuzzling or back arching can make us believe there's real heat rising between these two. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 17, 2012
9% ATM (2012) "After memorably sealing Ryan Reynolds in a coffin in Buried, screenwriter Chris Sparling's attempts to make a two-ATM vestibule equally claustrophobic are less inspired... " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 3, 2012
76% Kill List (2012) "Brutal and bloody and utterly unnerving... " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jan 31, 2012
72% The Dead (2011) "The Dead, with its vast, pitiless landscapes and moral seriousness, is Night of the Living Dead reimagined as a Sergio Leone western. It's a knockout. " ‐ Village Voice
