Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It's a funny, charming, and perfectly fine movie to make you forget about life for an hour or two. Still, for those looking for something more, this movie is not that. It's a Saturday-morning cartoon, brought to life.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

59% Hotel Artemis (2018) With so many characters, each with their own plot, the film is needlessly convoluted. It muddles its narrative and causes its greatest strengths to buckle under the weight of the plot.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

85% Upgrade (2018) Upgrade is a lesson in doing more with less, with an ending that establishes it as possibly one of the greatest of all time.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) With a film that has so many plot points and moves so quickly, it gets exhausting before the first act is over. Not to mention the film is aggressively stupid.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

94% Incredibles 2 (2018) You don't often get a superhero film that talks about the necessity of female role models.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

85% American Animals (2018) American Animals was an intriguing, well acted, and diabolically clever film.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

72% Adrift (2018) Shailene Woodley delivers a performance that is moving and inspiring. Against all odds, she maintains an ironclad will that inspires awe.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

26% Traffik (2018) Traffik is as entertaining as sitting in literal traffic-waiting for something to happen, only to be disappointed by the result.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The trio [of Ehrenreich, Glover, and Clarke] might've made an excellent film, had they been given better material than the exposition heavy dialogue in Solo. Would that it were so simple. ‐ Jamaica Gleaner

82% Deadpool 2 (2018) I very much enjoyed Deadpool 2 when I enjoyed it, but when I didn't, I found it to be tedious. The plot is basic and, for a film that prides itself on innovation, also a little derivative.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

72% Sing (2016) In a year chock full of animated films with talking animals, 'Sing' possibly has the most heart.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
41% Office Christmas Party (2016) It's definitely a movie enhanced by a cinema viewing with a big audience and it has enough in it to feel that the escapism it tries to deliver. Just don't be surprised if you end up wanting to leave the party early.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) hankfully, with a cast like this one, you're treated to a vast array of characters to cling on to. Some of them feel more like action figures than characters, but it's a delight to have characters that are colourful - in more than one sense of the word.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

86% Sully (2016) A decent character study of the humanity behind the people we so quickly turn into celebrities in this Internet age, where every action is analysed and under scrutiny.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

51% Almost Christmas (2016) At the time of year when you've already spent money you didn't want to spend, then perhaps save what you have left and miss this one.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
94% Arrival (2016) Arrival does such a great job at crafting anticipation, and the payoff doesn't come until much later.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
89% Doctor Strange (2016) It's by far one of the most visually interesting films out this year, with a world filled with new concepts that I left the film convinced of, thanks to the compelling visuals.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
45% The Girl on the Train (2016) The movie is successful, I suppose. It's just not a movie that can't be enjoyed just as much at home. ‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
23% Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) On paper, everything Tyler Perry does is not only smart, but it's also important. At it's best, you have films like 'Madea's Family Reunion', at it's worst, you have this film.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

20% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) All in all, this movie is just sort of nothing. It's not going to make you angry that it exists, but it's not gonna make you happy either. It simply occupies space and time, but leaves no real effect on you.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
52% The Accountant (2016) The Accountant is a movie I struggle with. I enjoyed it, but I can clearly see its faults. Its failures make its successes less impactful.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
83% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Perhaps, what Deepwater Horizon does best is its ability to coherently bring across tension. Even when the dialogue is muddled by technical jargon, you still get a sense of the looming presence of danger felt by the characters.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

93% Queen of Katwe (2016) Queen of Katwe defied my expectations and is a wonderful film to see with your family, but doesn't play it safe like so many family films do.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
B 11% When the Bough Breaks (2016) Its worst crime is being predictable, which sort of kills the suspense of it all.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

44% Hands of Stone (2016) Walking out of the movie I was mostly disappointed, since I felt that there was something there that could've been great, but instead was ho-hum.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

59% War Dogs (2016) What it really boils down to is, does War Dogs have enough in it to warrant your attention? Despite its flaws, I'm inclined to say yes - even just for the story alone.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
82% Sausage Party (2016) Sausage Party was better than I'd expected. It actually has characters you can get into and is brimming with creativity. Many moments will have you crying or laughing, others will make you so uncomfortable that you'll consider leaving the cinema.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
88% Pete's Dragon (2016) Pete's Dragon is a movie with clear messages that resonate masterfully. The trouble is, getting to those messages is a bit of a hassle.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
94% Fences (2016) Everyone delivers the letter above A game. Every micro expression feels thought out, and as big of a presence Washington has, he still has to contend with the scene stealing antics of Viola Davis, who more than gives him a run for his money.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Hacksaw Ridge is a movie for anyone who has felt like an outcast. It captures the feeling of having to defend one's values and stand by one's convictions, looking left when everyone is telling you to look right. It's brutal. Tense. ‐ Jamaica Gleaner

30% Monster Trucks (2017) Monster Trucks feels like it was tailor-made for boys under 10 everywhere. Boys like monsters. Boys like trucks. At least, that's what the thinking is for a studio executive. ‐ Jamaica Gleaner

92% La La Land (2016) When I wasn't charmed by the characters, I was transported by the film's playfulness. The camera bobs and weaves around like a jazz instrument. It's not content to simply film the content. It has to react to it as well.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
93% Hidden Figures (2017) The best parts of the movie are, in fact, the three main characters. Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae are each captivating by themselves. Combined, they're mesmerising. They interact naturally and they give the movie authenticity.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

76% Split (2017) Still, I wish I could've seen a film of this subject matter taken a bit more seriously. It's not the '80s anymore. Movies should be smarter than this.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) John Wick: Chapter 2 is an example of what makes a satisfying sequel. Its stakes are greater and, while a bit too familiar at times, has more than enough new material to warrant the attention of fans of the first film.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

86% Lion (2016) Lion may be based on a true story, but even so, it should be praised for the matter-of-factness in which it tells its story. There's very little that I felt was dramatised for the sake of a moving picture.‐ Jamaica Gleaner

93% Logan (2017) It's jaw-droppingly good at the things it does and, uncannily, what it does is join the ranks of the greatest superhero movies of all time.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
70% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Was Beauty and the Beast worth the admission price? I'm inclined to say yes. It'll take you back to how you felt the first time you watched it and put in a few new things to keep it feeling fresh.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
45% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Power Rangers has such an endearing self-awareness that it's impossible to stay mad at it. I could see everything that was wrong with this movie, but I enjoyed it immensely nonetheless.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
49% Going in Style (2017) The performances of Caine, Arkin and Freeman actually feel wonderfully understated. They give these characters life and make their stories tremendously relatable.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
25% Unforgettable (2017) Two-thirds of the way into Unforgettable, I was done. Finished. The movie had nothing to offer me except another 30 minutes of blank stares, both by myself and the characters.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
73% Gifted (2017) With relatable characters and naturalistic dialogue, Gifted feels remarkably real as it tugs at your heartstrings one by one.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is a refreshing superhero movie. It takes the spotlight and aims it squarely at its characters.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) For a film intended to be the first in a series of six, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is an alarmingly bad start. If this is the rock which a franchise is to be built on, it shall, indeed, crumble.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
15% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy feels inconsequential. While you're enjoying the ride, it never feels as though it's going anywhere.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
66% Alien: Covenant (2017) While it's true that Alien: Covenant is a captivating and thrilling film and the best Alien movie in years, its biggest strength is also its greatest weakness.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
30% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) The hallmark cleverness and visual fortitude of the Pirates of the Caribbean films has not been present for quite some time, but creeps back in with this film.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
68% Cars 3 (2017) The decency of the first film was undercut by the second film's inadequacy. This film, however, builds upon the best elements of the series, providing perhaps the most heartfelt of the trilogy. ‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) I cannot in good conscience, however, recommend that anyone, man, woman or child-pay money to see this film, as being forced to sit in a cinema for the film's 2-hour and 30-minute runtime was devastatingly exhausting.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
93% Baby Driver (2017) In a perfect world, this film makes all the money that is possible and is seen by audiences everywhere. Unfortunately, it'll be yet another film that doesn't get nearly as much attention as it truly deserves.‐ Jamaica Gleaner
