Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
13% Life Itself (2018) Fogelman tries to tug on the heartstrings by giving us a story full of people who go through some harrowing, emotional ordeals, but it constantly rings hollow. ‐ Nashville Scene

81% Juliet, Naked (2018) The movie seems to consist of a lot of loose strands that go nowhere or end up being discarded. Fortunately, Juliet, Naked still gets the point across that emotionally stunted men should grow up and appreciate what they have.‐ Nashville Scene

0% Reprisal (2018) Seeing Bruce Willis in the movies these days is damn embarrassing.‐ Village Voice

37% Blue Iguana (2018) From the characters to the purposely perplexing plot, it's all hollow and artificial to the point of being downright grating.‐ Village Voice

95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Lee has once again cleverly flexed his genre-bending muscles. Much as he did with 2015's underrated farcical/musical whatzit Chi-Raq, the director melds comedy and tragedy to come up with entertaining and thought-provoking cinema.‐ Nashville Scene

100% Night Comes On (2018) All through the film, you pray it doesn't go down the bleak routes that films like this usually go - and, most of the time, it does.‐ Village Voice

92% No Date, No Signature (Bedoune Tarikh, Bedoune Emza) (2018) In the dog-eat-kennel times we're living in now, No Date, No Signature presents a story of flawed but generally decent people trying to put right what went so horribly wrong.‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Killer Bees (2018) Unfortunately, the narrative focus constantly shifts and never coalesces.‐ Village Voice

49% Superfly (2018) For all its pulpy, genre-movie intentions, SuperFly is virtually crippled by its own ludicrousness.‐ Village Voice

7% China Salesman (2018) China Salesman has got to be one of the most baffling, expensive pats on the back China has ever given itself.‐ Village Voice

14% The Texture of Falling (2018) Allred's fractured storytelling seems intended to make the movie a sort of puzzle that comes together at the end (spoiler alert: it so doesn't).‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted May 30, 2018
97% The Rider (2018) It's so quiet that at times it feels like it doesn't want to disturb any other movies playing in neighboring theaters. But you'll definitely be swept away by its beautiful spirit - if you just hold on.‐ Nashville Scene
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
No Score Yet Born Guilty (2018) Really, this movie is just a stockpiled compendium of terrible decisions, both behind and in front of the camera.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
89% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) Boom makes Basquiat out to be an on-the-fringe, Zelig-like character, attempting to get his foot into a bustling arts scene where the inner-city people were beginning to mingle with the downtown folk.‐ Village Voice

25% Overboard (2018) Let's be real. That premise is so jacked up it's insane that Hollywood would bank on a remake.‐ Village Voice

10% Krystal (2018) Nearly everything these characters do goes beyond the realm of common sense.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
100% Personal Problems (2018) A view of African Americans that's messy, complicated, dramatic, and, most important, honest.‐ Village Voice

96% The Death of Stalin (2018) Once again, if you know how Iannucci works, you can expect Stalin to be as hilariously foul-mouthed as his previous works.‐ Nashville Scene
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
80% What We Started (2018) For a documentary that aims to be a comprehensive history of the modern dance DJ, What We Started tends to be both as enthused and unfocused about the whole scene as the average young EDM fan addled on molly.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
67% Us and Them (2018) As sleek and polished as Us and Them looks, it finds Martin not only biting from more established filmmakers, but biting off more than he can chew.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
55% The Forgiven (2018) Unfortunately, this movie has so many damn things percolating all through it that it ultimately seems unfocused and painfully earnest.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
47% Red Sparrow (2018) Although Red Sparrow succeeds at being the sort of routinely paranoid, melodramatic secret-agent yarn that used to drop back in the Reagan era, it overdoes it in the brutality department.‐ Nashville Scene

64% The Lullaby (2018) The filmmakers do an effective job at making a clever horror show out of postpartum depression. So it's a shame the movie goes off the deep end in the final act ...‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
65% The Cured (2018) Unfortunately, all of these factors fail to coalesce in the end, as the jumbled, manic finale builds to a messy implosion.‐ Village Voice

81% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
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

53% Bilal: A New Breed of Hero (2018) Bilal achieves a vibrantly noble tone even when it stumbles plot-wise.‐ New Times

91% Kickboxer: Retaliation (2018) A hysterically entertaining train wreck.‐ Village Voice

74% Mom and Dad (2018) Think The Happening, but only parents get affected - and the movie's actually good this time around.‐ Village Voice

78% 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

5% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
57% Hollow in the Land (2017) The stench of needlessly convoluted derivativeness lingers throughout this flick.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2017
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 90% 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

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

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 54% 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 95% 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 60% 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 46% 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
