T-Meter Title | Year
C+ 82% The Report (2019) The Report struggles throughout to lend a lasting weight to its straightforward plotting. If you truly wish to know what took place in those sordid locations, there's a 525-page executive summary out there capable of painting a far more detailed picture. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B- 56% The Dead Don't Die (2019) The pleasure of The Dead Don't Die lies in Jarmusch's general transparency about his sandbox approach to the zombie movie throughout. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

A- 93% The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) In Talbot and Fails' San Francisco, even the people you dislike are still your neighbors. You don't just push them out. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B 90% Always Be My Maybe (2019) Always Be My Maybe is a perfectly light concoction for the start of summer, the kind of easy studio comedy that Netflix has had to sustain in the franchise era. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C 57% Brightburn (2019) The early scenes carry a different kind of dread, one separate from the alien-with-superpowers variety that Brightburn ultimately embraces as it goes on. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

A- 90% The Souvenir (2019) The Souvenir is a film about making films, but what writer/director Joanna Hogg accomplishes here is something far sharper and more insightful than many movies of the sort. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C+ 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Pokémon Detective Pikachu actually works for the most part, which feels like a pleasant surprise in and of itself. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted May 7, 2019
B+ 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) As it unfolds, the film invites you to forget about whatever you came in deciding it would be. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2019
B 100% Grass Is Greener (2019) In Greener's view, until those most affected by the War on Drugs are put in a position to directly benefit from legalization, it's not really accomplishing anything at all. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2019
B+ 89% Missing Link (2019) As with so many Laika films, you'll come for the breathtaking animation, and you'll leave both enchanted and surprised by the big, beating heart beneath it. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B 60% Sunset (Napszállta) (2019) This is a film to be digested over time, one built from ideas carrying far greater weight than their specific presentation within. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

A 99% Apollo 11 (2019) Apollo 11 is a great documentary, and its greatness can largely be attributed to the stunning archival scenes compiled within it. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2019
C- 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) Fighting With My Family ultimately reveals itself as a shallow take on a genuinely fascinating story. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2019
B- 60% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Alita: Battle Angel is something strange and unique and special, built from the finest repurposed parts. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B 70% Isn't It Romantic (2019) In an era where we expect more out of our romantic comedies, it manages to hit the mark without shedding off the things that made them so lovable in the first place. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2019
C- 43% The Prodigy (2019) The Prodigy is almost wholly devoid of real scares, instead relying on the assumption that a kid doing violent adult things is enough to sustain a 90-minute movie. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
B+ 72% Piercing (2019) Central to Piercing's winding two-hander about the limitations of consent, lust, and fear is the way in which Pesce consistently keeps the pendulum swinging. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
B- 70% Cold Pursuit (2019) You've never seen an action movie so obsessed with the particulars of dead body movement and disposal. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
C- 41% The Upside (2019) Although its leads find the odd moment of charm together, The Upside fumbles far too often when it attempts to enlighten or edify its audience. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2019
D+ 50% Escape Room (2019) Escape Room begins to feel a lot like watching someone else partake in that particular activity. It's about as exciting as that sounds. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2019
D 11% Holmes and Watson (2018) Holmes & Watson is the kind of sloppy production that's almost easier to pity than hate. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2018
A- 92% Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018) The small moments linger the most throughout Cold War, and it's in those delicate notes that Pawlikowski's film gains its true resonance. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2018
D+ 27% Mortal Engines (2018) There's more than one genuinely unpleasant fight scene throughout the film's 129 minutes, and that unpleasantness is wholly owed to the visually scattered direction. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2018
A- 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) There's a breathless sense of discovery and play that makes the film seem new, even as it's tap-dancing through the imprints of so many sci-fi stories throughout the years. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2018
D 15% Robin Hood (2018) This Robin Hood looks like a lot of other things audiences might half-recognize, but it barely resembles the classic story on which it's based. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
C- 59% The Front Runner (2018) If there's a facet of The Front Runner that justifies the film's seemingly purpose-void hand-wringing about protecting liberal icons, it's the central performance by Jackman. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
B- 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) It's just hard to tell exactly what the point is after a while, at least beyond getting the kids in attendance to cheer and laugh with recognition. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
B+ 80% Boy Erased (2018) Boy Erased is endlessly earnest in its messaging, and if the film occasionally does verge on treacle, it's certainly in service of a noble cause. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
A- 95% Burning (Beoning) (2018) This is despairing filmmaking, but also the kind that arrests the eye from its first moments. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
A 100% Shirkers (2018) Shirkers is the kind of adventurous filmmaking that renders so many other bone-dry documentaries all the more tedious by comparison. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2018
B+ 88% What They Had (2018) Chomko simply observes that life moves on, and we attempt to stay attached to the people we can as it does. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2018
B+ 80% Apostle (2018) Evans is an exceptional action filmmaker, but here he also proves himself an equally adept storyteller. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2018
B- 93% Heavy Trip (Hevi reissu) (2018) There's always been a from-the-basement feel to the genre, and everything about the modest dark comedy of Heavy Trip feels entirely faithful to that anarchic spirit. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2018
B+ 90% A Star Is Born (2018) It's a story of rock stars and A-list fame told in small moments and claustrophobic shouting matches, an epic made small to moving effect. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2018
B 87% The Sisters Brothers (2018) There's a strangeness to certain passages of Sisters that bolsters it through its seedy saloons and cacophonous firefights. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2018
B+ 91% Mandy (2018) You've never seen anything quite like Mandy, even if its DNA is assembled in patchwork from so many pulpy, D&D friendly novels of the '70s and '80s. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2018
C 59% White Boy Rick (2018) White Boy Rick isn't unusual often enough to stand apart, or nakedly emotional enough to push through its increasing reliance on tired genre standards. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
B- 66% Lizzie (2018) It's no surprise that most of the film's best material comes from Sevigny and Stewart sharing the screen. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
D 12% Peppermint (2018) Before long, Peppermint's true purpose emerges: to trade on the phobias of audiences inundated with MS-13 panic and "it's coming for your town next" crime rhetoric. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
B- 66% The Little Stranger (2018) There are certainly a few instances of genuine terror throughout, but its horrors are every bit as allegorical as literal. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
B 91% Support the Girls (2018) "Crushing" is a good word at large for Support the Girls' approach to work, which as Bujalski sees it is equally tedious and necessary. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
B 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Like the great romantic comedies, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
D+ 7% Slender Man (2018) That's perhaps the most disappointing thing of all about Slender Man: it's somehow way less scary than the spooky memes a bunch of internet dorks made up. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
B 46% The Meg (2018) There's a distinctly campy sensibility to The Meg that goes a long way toward anchoring even some of the film's graver sequences in a general sense of play. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
B 89% Whitney (2018) Whitney is made from a place of genuine admiration for Houston, but it's also bracingly candid about addressing the realities of her final years with minimal gloss. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B- 47% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper's knowing sense of transparency about its own corniness turns it into exactly the right kind of summer outing. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
C- 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Whatever you might have to say about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, at least it picks a more consistent mode for itself. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
D- No Score Yet Gotti (2018) It's hard to say for certain what defines a truly great biopic, but it's significantly easier to observe that Gotti is far from being one among them. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2018
C 13% Action Point (2018) There's a lot of talk of days gone by throughout Action Point, to such an extent that even the film's R-rated penchant for four-letter words and porno mags feels oddly quaint. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2018
B 95% Filmworker (2018) At its best, the documentary highlights [Vitali's] boundless zeal for this work that made him so indispensable. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
