Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
26% Terminator Genisys (2015) Genisys falls somewhere in the vast expanse of territory between the second and third movie - entertaining, but less intelligent (and less satisfying) than it easily could've been.‐ Polygon

65% The Visit (2015) This is horror at its most powerful, when it strips away all of the layers of protection we collectively use to hide from our deepest fears and takes a long, hard look at them.‐ Polygon

66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) This is a summer popcorn movie, certainly, but an expertly crafted one, full of thrills and big laughs.‐ Polygon

64% Magic Mike XXL (2015) At its core, though, this is a movie about friendship more than it is about hustle or simple eye candy, and that's a big part of what makes it so much fun.‐ Polygon

98% Inside Out (2015) It's rare to find media that's genuinely touching without being cloying. Yes, Inside Out is cute - but not distractingly so. Its laughs and tears are earned, in every frame.‐ Polygon

66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) Outside of the bad jokes, Pitch Perfect 2 really does shine. There's an infectious, dorky humor about the whole production.‐ Polygon

50% Tomorrowland (2015) But for families and those who want badly enough to believe in a beautiful future, Tomorrowland is a sugary slice of escapism.‐ Polygon

84% Cinderella (2015) Cinderella is a story that really demands nuance in 2015, and that feature is sadly lacking in this adaptation.‐ Polygon

36% Project Almanac (2015) It's a far better teen movie than sci-fi film, but thanks to its affable cast, I wasn't wishing for a magical do-over to have those two hours back.‐ Polygon

80% Black Sea (2015) I may have seen something like Black Sea a hundred times before, but the elements hold up, stitched this particular way. If every there was such a thing as submarine movie comfort food, it's this.‐ Polygon

26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) But if you want to be entertained by pretty pictures and wildly talented actors at their loudest possible setting, Jupiter Ascending has your number.‐ Polygon

74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Kingsman has a light touch, poking fun at classic James Bond films, alongside more modern fare like the Bourne movies and 24. But it also has heart, a subversive undercurrent and a great deal of love for its characters.‐ Polygon

66% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) With Mockingjay Part 1, it's evolved into the rarest of breeds: a series that can carry sober and frightening messages about violence, gracefully and even beautifully.‐ Polygon

89% Big Hero 6 (2014) Big Hero 6 is clever, sweet and intensely likable, much like its band of heroes. I walked out of the theater happy and energized, and if the young families in my screening were any indication, just like a kid.‐ Polygon

65% The Maze Runner (2014) The Maze Runner is better and more tightly constructed than a simple cash-in. It's a well-paced adventure-thriller with an intoxicating sense of mystery and the chutzpah to take huge leaps with its fictional world.‐ Polygon

82% Advantageous (2015) Advantageous isn't going to win any awards for visual effects (this is a modestly budgeted film), but the writing, directing and performances are so strong that they elevate the film far beyond a simple twist on a classic trope.‐ Polygon

72% Jurassic World (2015) Taken entirely on its own merits, Jurassic World is big and exciting and well-paced, the tension is wisely doled out so that action and disaster never feel far away, and once the... really starts to hit the fan, the movie fully comes into its own.‐ Polygon

51% The Interview (2014) The Interview is gross and racist, and most of the time, it's not even funny.‐ Polygon

18% Self/less (2015) When read as a high-octane action movie, Self/less has its moments. Just don't think too hard about any of them, or you, too, might need pills to keep it all together.‐ Polygon

71% Interstellar (2014) It's flawed, certainly, but its vision is undeniably appealing and ultimately the film's saving grace.‐ Polygon

94% Carol (2015) I can think of no better way to describe Carol to others - it is so powerful, so important, so real and alive that it makes you forget it's not happening to you.‐ Polygon

9% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) The finished movie feels like something an angry teenaged boy would make if he had a budget and access to talent.‐ Polygon
