T-Meter Title | Year
25% Gemini Man (2019) The script has been chopped and screwed and rewritten for more than two decades, and this feels like something Jean-Claude Van Damme would've done in between projects just to help pay for that extra vacation house. - Nashville Scene EDIT

68% Joker (2019) Fleck's descent into madness and self-discovery as a villain is at once gripping cinema and bothersome characterization. - Nashville Scene EDIT

99% Marriage Story (2019) Baumbach plays the material with the same levity-in-a-tornado wit and wisdom that hallmarks the best works of James L. Brooks, and gets powerhouse performances out of Driver and Johansson. - Nashville Scene EDIT

86% Burning Cane (2019) Although this film could've benefitted from a less observational and more engaged narrative, the imagery is stark and unforgiving, highlighting the disarrayed lives of Youmans' characters. - Nashville Scene EDIT

B 19% Semper Fi (2019) Semper Fi is a dignified film that gives Jai Courtney room to shine and is always impressionable in its open-hearted emotions. - The Playlist EDIT

63% It Chapter Two (2019) It's designed to feel like a rancid reunion, a painstaking re-creation to conjure the same chills it elicited the first time you went to Derry, Maine. - Nashville Scene EDIT

22% The Kitchen (2019) Everything about The Kitchen's script feels sanded down and traced over, though Berloff still shows plenty of potential as a director. - Nashville Scene EDIT

78% Captain Marvel (2019) Captain Marvel can stand alone as a step forward for a film series that was long past due making one, just as it can fall short of its potential - Nashville Scene EDIT

90% Shazam! (2019) Sandberg plays it loose and silly enough to keep the film buoyant and fresh, while still contemplating enough to make it stick. - Nashville Scene EDIT

90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The craft speaks for itself. Dan Laustsen's razor-sharp cinematography sparks every scene, which is some of the most exciting and jubilant in action fare this decade ... - Nashville Scene EDIT

B+ 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) A noble, jaw-dropping spectacle. - The Playlist EDIT

C- 11% Holmes and Watson (2018) Holmes and Watson will probably make you smile, and occasionally, it earns that goodwill. But the film is nowhere near where it should be with the company present. - The Playlist EDIT

A 97% Thunder Road (2018) Though the sky might be falling, "Thunder Road" swirls about the tragicomedy of Officer Arnaud's plight with ease. It's hard to really forge a film that can wreck you and play with such liveliness. - The Playlist EDIT

8/10 99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) Shaun the Sheep is a deceptively simple character, and Shaun the Sheep Movie is a deceptively simple film. - PopMatters EDIT
