Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 96% Black Panther (2018) Ryan Coogler's Black Panther is one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most powerful, moving, and thematically resonant films to date. It's also one of its most uneven, when all is said and done. ‐

3/5 59% Peter Rabbit (2018) Peter Rabbit is better as a straight comedy than an adaptation of Beatrix Potter's beloved books. It's full of laughs, but never captures its source's warmth.‐

2/5 21% Forever My Girl (2018) Sweet and dull to a fault, Forever My Girl forgoes interesting characters or story in favor of a picturesque southern tableau. ‐

2/5 39% Den of Thieves (2018) Den of Thieves is a 90-minute thriller stretched out over a punishing two hours and twenty minutes. ‐

2.5/5 33% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) Though skillfully directed, Insidious: The Last Key isn't as good as previous entries. Scares come hard and fast, but they're underserved by a paper-thin plot and characters.‐

3.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) [Justice League is] an insanely fun time as it absolutely nails these DC heroes, offers up some phenomenal fan service, and promises a ton of hope for the future of the DCEU.‐

3/5 51% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Roman J. Israel, Esq. is two great movies combined into a good one. It's anchored by big ideas and a wonderful performance, but stories A and B never mesh into something deeper.‐

2.5/5 29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) An above-average comedy sequel/ heartfelt Christmas story kept afloat by the charm of the returning leads and their family dynamics.‐

1/5 6% Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (2017) Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is a profoundly miserable low point for the Madea franchise as a whole.‐

4/5 87% Only the Brave (2017) Though somewhat uneven at times Joseph Kosinksi's Only the Brave is one of the most respectful and emotionally compelling true story films in recent memory. ‐

2/5 5% Flatliners (2017) Though competently directed and well-acted, Flatliners does little to set itself apart from a run-of-the-mill thriller. True to the material, it simply lacks a pulse.‐

3/5 54% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) It is another enjoyable entry in the overarching LEGO franchise, but the delightfully sharp spark that made the first two LEGO films so great isn't quite there. ‐

2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) Light on plot but heavy on action, American Assassin is mostly forgettable but works well enough when it focuses on the dynamic between Michael Keaton and Dylan O'Brien.‐

3.5/5 42% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) A rare sequel that gets bloody fighting to earn its existence. With heart and laughs aplenty, it's a big win and one of 2017's best comedies.‐

2/5 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) The film squanders its best ideas with an abundance of cliches and lackluster execution.‐

3/5 50% The Glass Castle (2017) There's an abundance of talent on display in 'The Glass Castle,' but the story of the Walls family never rises to the occasion and becomes greater than the sum of its parts.‐

4/5 69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Annabelle: Creation is easily one of the better installments in the burgeoning Conjuring universe, and it even features a handful of moments that support the case that it's the best of the bunch.‐

3.5/5 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) If you're an action nut with an affinity for technical movie magic, then Atomic Blonde will almost certainly deliver, but those looking for a coherent story should look elsewhere.‐

1.5/5 16% Wish Upon (2017) Wish Upon is neither scary, nor stylish, and it squanders a promising young cast on a dull and soulless story. ‐

1.5/5 17% All Eyez on Me (2017) A loving tribute to Tupac Shakur, but its sloppy execution and scatterbrained story mean it will definitely not become the next Straight Outta Compton.‐

2.5/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) Cars 3 is a definite improvement over Cars 2, but it does not even come close to achieving the emotional or dramatic heights that we have come to expect from a proper Pixar film.‐

4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Diana Prince's solo film easily stands out as the best DC film since 'The Dark Knight', and 'Wonder Woman' is a sign of great things to come in the DC Extended Universe.‐

2/5 30% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Proves that it may finally be time for Captain Jack to hang up his sword and give up the pirate's life for good.‐

2.5/5 46% Everything, Everything (2017) Everything, Everything has the style to draw in fans of the Young Adult genre, but it lacks the substance to truly resonate when compared to other (better) YA films.‐

3.5/5 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) A campy yet enjoyable romp that honors its roots while carving out a place for this charismatic new generation of heroes that should make longtime fans and newcomers proud.‐

3.5/5 26% Fist Fight (2017) If your head is already in the gutter when you walk into the theater, then you will have a splendid time watching the insanity gradually unfold.‐

1.5/5 45% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) For the sake of perspective, xXx 3 makes Suicide Squad look like Casablanca.‐

4/5 81% Patriots Day (2017) A relevant true story that continues Peter Berg's hot streak with Mark Wahlberg, respects those who perished during the week of the Boston Marathon bombings, and celebrates everyday heroism.‐

4.5/5 75% The Eyes of My Mother (2016) The Eyes of My Mother burrows into your psyche and takes you to a dark place you didn't know existed.‐

4/5 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) A heartfelt, pathos-driven coming-of-age story that would make John Hughes incredibly proud.‐

2.5/5 34% Masterminds (2016) Jared Hess' best comedy since Napoleon Dynamite -- which admittedly is not exactly a very difficult feat for him to pull off.‐

4/5 87% Don't Breathe (2016) Taps into our deepest, darkest fears, and offers us a bloody, instant horror classic that's not for the faint of heart.‐

45% Batman: The Killing Joke (2016) If you consider yourself a Batman fan in any capacity, make sure you see The Killing Joke immediately. It's not just a good Batman movie; it might actually be the best Batman movie to date.‐

3.5/5 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) The film ultimately finds itself saved by director Luca Guadagnino's strong sense of style, and the sheer commitment of the film's lead actors.‐

3/5 61% Race (2016) An inspiring - even if sometimes uneven - film, Race addresses topical ideas of racial bigotry by treating them as irrelevant in the grander scheme of things. ‐

1.5/5 9% Norm of the North (2016) Takes familiar elements from numerous other, better made, animated features and tries to Frankenstein them together, but ultimately forgets the most important element of all: charm.‐

2/5 13% Ride Along 2 (2016) A heartless, hollow sequel that squanders what little charm one could glean from the original.‐

3/5 70% Miss You Already (2015) A whimsical dramedy that induces the same feeling as eating a cup of Pinkberry or sharing a bottle of chardonnay with a friend and watching E!‐

4/5 91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) A force to be reckoned with, and one of the most powerful war films in recent memory.‐
