Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
78% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is a generic, sentimental attempt to pay tribute to one of the more intriguing femmes fatales to ever grace the silver screen.‐ Nashville Scene

0% Lies We Tell (2018) From the storyline to the score to the climactic reaction shots to the purposely head-scratching ending, Lies We Tell is crammed, histrionic, and way too damn much.‐ Village Voice

55% Bilal: A New Breed of Hero (2018) Bilal achieves a vibrantly noble tone even when it stumbles plot-wise.‐ New Times

77% All the Money in the World (2017) [Ridley] Scott doesn't seem to know whether to play this so-insane-it-has-to-be-true story for dark laughs or to dramatize it as another gripping, suspenseful fact-based tale.‐ Nashville Scene

6% Hangman (2017) You may not take a single frame of this movie seriously, especially whenever Pacino is shuffling around, waving a gun and talking like he's desperately in need of a mint julep.‐ Village Voice

62% Hollow in the Land (2017) The stench of needlessly convoluted derivativeness lingers throughout this flick.‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Revolt (2017) Despite its title, Revolt isn't a movie that will incite either revolution or revulsion in viewers. In fact, you might walk away from it with a serious case of whatever. ‐ L.A. Weekly

100% No Greater Love (2017) I'm thankful No Greater Love is around to make people realize how much war heroes need our love, help, and support once they come back home.‐ Village Voice

83% Mayhem (2017) Here comes Mayhem, with a wild mix of white-collar beatdowns and bloodshed that will indeed satisfy all the hard-working nine-to-fivers.‐ Village Voice

4/4 91% The Great Beauty (2013) Funny and sad, poignant and profound, elegant and elegiac, ambitious and ambiguous, The Great Beauty is one of the most utterly enjoyable movies I've seen in years.‐ INDY Week

89% The Wind Rises (2014) If The Wind Rises is indeed Miyazaki's last hurrah, he goes out on a graceful, all-encompassing note.‐ INDY Week

3/4 98% Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2014) Ultimately, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me makes you root for her even when you've had your fill of her. ‐ INDY Week

2.5/4 64% Million Dollar Arm (2014) The movie certainly found the right screenwriter in Tom McCarthy.‐ INDY Week

2/4 51% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) On a list of Allen's worst films, this, my friends, would rank very low.‐ INDY Week

1/4 33% Passion (2013) As much as [De Palma] beautifies this mess-the movie's so sleek, you'll worry that the cast is gonna slip off the damn screen-it's still a mess.‐ INDY Week

2/4 31% Hell Baby (2013) While not a lot of Hell Baby works... the movie does seem destined to be the sort of acquired-taste howler that will most likely attract people who recognize how ridiculous horror movies can be-and, of course, stoners.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2017
1/4 50% Thanks For Sharing (2013) As much as it wants to show how keeping it in your pants can be downright debilitating for some, Thanks for Sharing ultimately proves to be an unsatisfying, relentlessly depriving experience.‐ INDY Week

2/4 55% Escape From Tomorrow (2013) Escape from Tomorrow often makes good on its aspiration to stick it to the man in the mouse suit, but let's not get carried away: Miley Cyrus is currently doing just that to much greater effect.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
3/4 96% Muscle Shoals (2013) An occasionally doleful but otherwise lively trip, Muscle Shoals is yet another cinematic shout-out to those unsung heroes who came out of nowhere and made music that mattered.‐ INDY Week

4/4 94% Her (2013) This retro-futuristic romance (set in a world where people dress like colorful Quakers) has not only a lyrical sharpness but also the most sincere of faces. ‐ INDY Week

3/4 61% Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013) I will say that of all the Oscar-bait movies the Weinstein Company has released this holiday season, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is one that won't make you grimace in agony while you're watching it.‐ INDY Week

3/4 48% I'm So Excited! (2013) A ribald, ridiculous party in the sky, I'm So Excited is basically Almodóvar's Soul Plane-and I mean that as a compliment.‐ INDY Week

4/4 94% Fruitvale Station (2013) It's a sad state of affairs when movies like Fruitvale Station have to show everyone what they should know by now: Black people are people, too.‐ INDY Week

4/4 99% 20 Feet From Stardom (2013) Joyous, uplifting, melancholy and nostalgic, Twenty Feet From Stardom is a stunning salute to the singers who stay in the background, but whose talents can never be contained there.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
2/4 94% Stories We Tell (2013) This is the most functional tale of dysfunctional-family drama I've ever heard.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
3/4 91% Gimme The Loot (2013) Gimme the Loot may scare off future visitors to New York City, but it'll certainly make those who grew up there homesick as hell.‐ INDY Week

2/4 4% 6 Souls (2013) Even though God is actually mentioned in the closing, special-thanks credits, dude couldn't unfortunately work His/Her magic and prevent this film from being the uneven, preposterously out-of-control wreck that it is. Can the church say "Amen"?‐ INDY Week

3/4 81% Ginger & Rosa (2013) With Ginger & Rosa, Potter once again documents the usually lonely road a woman takes in finding out who she really is, this time showing it from the perspective of someone who isn't even a woman yet. ‐ INDY Week

1/4 19% Identity Thief (2013) Identity Thief is supposed be a fun time, but robs you of it the whole 111 minutes you're sitting there watching it.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
3/4 80% Quartet (2013) The movie, like the play it's based on, is more about reminding audiences that talented people are often still talented in their later years. It's safe to say that Quartet will be the feel-good movie of the year-for anyone over 65.‐ INDY Week

3/4 91% Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie (2013) He was the perfect by-product of the Reagan era and, as Evocateur reminds us, someone rabid, right-wing broadcasters should gratefully praise every day of their lives.‐ INDY Week

3/4 70% Not Fade Away (2012) As the title oh-so-obviously implies, it's a love that will-well, you know.‐ INDY Week

2/4 77% A Late Quartet (2012) The unconvincing, histrionic script makes all of this seem more contrived than controlled. ‐ INDY Week

3/4 82% Seven Psychopaths (2012) Violence may be served up in copious amounts, but McDonagh also creates characters who have no qualms going gently into that good night. ‐ INDY Week

3/4 66% 2 Days in New York (2012) It's quite amazing that both Delpy and Rock pull this off, convincingly playing a couple who, despite being polar opposites, are straight-up smitten with each other.‐ INDY Week

3/4 79% Pitch Perfect (2012) The movie almost makes me consider watching an episode of Glee-almost.‐ INDY Week

2/4 44% Hotel Transylvania (2012) The movie is hardly top-notch stuff.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
3/4 79% Killer Joe (2012) Killer Joe is such a hideously over-the-top, black-hearted view of Southern-fried scumbags that even Texans like myself can't get offended. ‐ INDY Week

2/4 67% God Bless America (2012) While Goldthwait's heart is in the right place, it's unlikely the blood spilled in his film will make annoying, loathsome people finally straighten ... up. ‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
1/4 21% Darling Companion (2012) The kind of forced, deceptive, quasi-quirky heart-warmer that brings older people (and rabid dog lovers) to the art house, Darling Companion ultimately isn't about finding the dog. It's about these shrill, boring-ass people finding each other.‐ INDY Week

3/4 78% Brave (2012) It's really the most sympathetic salute to mothers Disney has released since Freaky Friday.‐ INDY Week

3/4 94% The Queen of Versailles (2012) Be prepared to find yourself trying to find sympathy and compassion for the Siegels.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
3/4 84% Puss in Boots (2011) It doesn't rely on annoying pop references or scenes of shameless schmaltz. Credit is probably due to executive producer Guillermo del Toro.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
3/4 89% Margin Call (2011) Margin Call effectively portrays these masters of the universe as flawed folk who were just as ill-informed, unaware and ultimately scared of losing it all as the general public. ‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
2/4 83% Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2011) For his characters' demises, co-writer/director Eli Craig (aka Sally Field's son) comes up with the sort of ridiculous Rube Goldberg setups you would usually find in Final Destination movies.‐ INDY Week
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
2/4 59% Real Steel (2011) You can guess where the movie goes.‐ INDY Week

75% Mama Africa (2018) Mama Africa shows how Miriam Makeba was the antithesis of a diva. Right up until her death in 2008, she was a woman who cared too damn much.‐ Nashville Scene

No Score Yet Dark Signal (2017) The incoherent, mostly-out-of-control Dark Signal is too damn much.‐ L.A. Weekly
