Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 65% Beautiful Boy (2018) Like a lot of Amazon's recent efforts, Beautiful Boy works best as an actor's showcase, especially as another stepping stone in Chalamet's rise to boyish movie star. ‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 96% Wildlife (2018) Much like his tempered onscreen persona, Paul Dano's directorial debut is quiet, considered, and deeply sensitive. ‐ Consequence of Sound

B+ 89% The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) Gyllenhaal's bonafides as a performer are well known, but The Kindergarten Teacher might be one of the most effective showcases for her considerable talents since Secretary.‐ Consequence of Sound

B- 61% The Oath (2018) If The Oath is a Thanksgiving feast, timeliness is the can-shaped cranberry sauce that infuses every dish on the table with sweet, sumptuous flavor. ‐ Consequence of Sound

C- 30% Venom (2018) Venom's almost worth watching for Tom Hardy's bizarre accent and whirling-dervish mania alone, but it's a shame he's not surrounded by a better, more exciting film.‐ Consequence of Sound

B+ 89% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) Of course, none of this works without Redford, putting in superlative work in a role that, without cliché, it feels like he was born to play. ‐ Consequence of Sound

B- 88% Love, Gilda (2018) With her radiant smile and confident stage presence, it's easy to want to inhabit Radner's onstage world of love and light.‐ Consequence of Sound

D 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) It becomes clear all too quickly that "puppets say swears" is all the film has to offer, so it's a slog to sit through the remaining seventy minutes of that same joke.‐ Consequence of Sound

D 25% Mile 22 (2018) If you squint hard enough, you can find some perverse entertainment in Mile 22's patently absurd world.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
B- 45% Generation Wealth (2018) Generation Wealth, Greenfield's latest, feels like her anti-capitalist magnum opus, a natural extrapolation of the themes of a lifetime's work.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) The results are occasionally moving and heartfelt, but delivered with a milquetoast distance that mutes some of the film's uplift.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
D+ 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Day of the Soldado de-fangs the previous film's critiques, softening its monsters into begrudgingly necessary tools for justice.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
C 77% The King (2018) For as well-intentioned as Jarecki may be, The King starts with a conclusion and works backward from there, and the results are more than a little tenuous.‐ Consequence of Sound

B 55% Tag (2018) Perhaps it says something about the state of modern comedy, but it's a relief to see a broad studio comedy taking the time to look good.‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) It's as bright and visually inventive as its predecessor, and finds cheeky new outlets for Bird's unbridled cinematic sensibilities.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
C+ 86% Alex Strangelove (2018) The film occasionally trips over some genuine insight into the layers of teen confusion and self-discovery that are so often integral to the coming out experience. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2018
B 86% Upgrade (2018) Upgrade's sheer energy and the strength of its concept do more than enough to elevate this revenge picture into something refreshing and eminently watchable.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 29, 2018
D 20% Terminal (2018) Drawing from a host of late-nineties influences but doing nothing with them, Terminal is little more than a shallow exercise in dated crime movie pastiche.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
B+ 86% Tully (2018) Theron's a perfect avatar for Cody's irrepressible empathy for her subjects, wounded and loving in equal measure, and she's hardly been more watchable.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
A 97% The Rider (2018) The Rider is Jandreau's story to tell, and he relives every moment of this terrible time in his life with an unbelievable stoicism and psychological depth.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
B 72% Paterno (2018) When something as world-shattering as this scandal comes along, [Al] Pacino deliberately drains his signature verve from Paterno, playing up the weak frailty of an old man relying on his reputation to skate by without scrutiny.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
C- 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) Super Troopers 2 fails to update its comic sensibilities to something a little more modern, the actors' charisma sinking in a sea of dead jokes.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2018
D 20% Game Over, Man! (2018) At all turns, Game Over, Man! is a cynical vehicle for the kind of outdated humor that fell out of style more than a decade ago. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
B 80% Unsane (2018) There's an intimacy to Soderbergh's camera that makes so many of the shots feel positively voyeuristic, a la The Conversation.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
B- 51% Tomb Raider (2018) Imagine Raiders of the Lost Ark, if there was a very real possibility that the Nazis were full of shit about the Ark of the Covenant: that's the tone Tomb Raider strikes, with relative success.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
C 38% Gringo (2018) Gringo's obvious debt to the works of Tarantino and the Coen brothers give it a tone that's too arch and haphazard to keep the audience rooted in its characters.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
C- 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) Simply put, Prey at Night sacrifices its own identity to drench horror audiences in throwback familiarity.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
A- 88% Annihilation (2018) Even with all the CGI toys in the world, [Garland] commits to asking big questions without spoon-feeding the answers.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
B- 90% On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl) (2018) Beyond all the abstraction and esoterica of Enyedi's approach, there's a poignant thematic core ready to be explored in depth.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
B- 84% The Final Year (2018) The Final Year serves best as a rosy-cheeked reminder of the hope and optimism that existed for eight years in the White House.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
B 57% The Commuter (2018) As with The Shallows, Collet-Serra seems to work best within the geographical limitations of a single setting, making for remarkably lucid, well-paced filmmaking.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2018
A- 78% All the Money in the World (2017) The end result is as cohesive - and entrancing - as the most meticulously planned productions.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
C- 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) For all the charm of the main cast, it's borderline impossible to keep that energy up for two whole hours.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
B 84% Darkest Hour (2017) All the political infighting and wartime drama is just window dressing for Oldman's performance as Churchill, and it's one for the books.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
C- 20% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) One wishes writer-director Sean Anders could trust his leads' crackerjack chemistry to carry the day, instead of leaning on weak fall-down-go-boom antics.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
B- 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Even for a Marvel film, Thor: Ragnarok is a weightless lark, almost to a fault. Waititi has so much fun playing with his toys that, at times, he forgets to offer the proceedings enough import. These are marginal concerns, at the end of the day.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2017
B- 76% Thank You for Your Service (2017) For a first-time feature, Hall's approach to the material is surprisingly nuanced and sensitive. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2017
C 64% The Foreigner (2017) The thrills are there, but it's not hard to be left wanting a lot more from a modern-day standoff between Jackie Chan and 007. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
A 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) It may seem premature to ascribe the word 'masterpiece' to a legacyquel of a heady sci-fi head-scratcher from the '80s, but its audacity and formal perfection - not to mention its thematic weight - leave no other alternative.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
C 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Note to the producers: Next time, just give us a Statesmen spinoff, cut it down to 100 minutes, and be done with it.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
C 76% Crown Heights (2017) This is a difficult story to tell on film, to be sure, but 94 minutes hardly seems like enough time to properly convey the torment and loneliness of two decades behind bars.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
D- 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) The Hitman's Bodyguard is the Fuddruckers of movies: obnoxious, filled with kitschy music, and only digestible to the most undiscerning palates. It's cinematic dog food.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
B- 85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Spicer and co-writer David Branson Smith work hard to juggle the bleak tragedy of Ingrid's foolish quest for validation and attention with the quirkiness of their characters.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
B 94% SCORE: A Film Music Documentary (2017) Score's charms are many, offering an appealing portrait of an aspect of cinema that sometimes doesn't get the appreciation it deserves.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
C- 15% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy's true curse is that it's doomed to sacrifice its moments of fun, breezy spectacle for overwrought world-building. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
D 17% Baywatch (2017) Baywatch works hard to earn its R rating, but this kind of tame raunch won't amuse anybody who's seen a comedy in the last twenty years.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 24, 2017
C+ 88% Get Me Roger Stone (2017) Get Me Roger Stone offers its audience an unblinking, if disappointingly straightforward, look at the infamous operator.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
B- 66% The Wall (2017) Doug Liman's taut sniper thriller The Wall falls somewhere between The Hurt Locker and Lone Survivor on that scale, offering surface-level critiques of the fog of war while serving as a tense thriller on its own.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
C 54% The Belko Experiment (2017) The Belko Experiment feels like a return to the blood-slicked horror comedy of [Gunn's] roots, even if it doesn't completely fire on all cylinders.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
C 35% The Great Wall (2017) Set your expectations appropriately low and The Great Wall has plenty to offer.‐ Consequence of Sound
