T-Meter Title | Year
61% Trial by Fire (2019) Sadly, this cinematic retelling of a truly appalling story is too often hamstrung by its predictability and overreliance on the audience's outrage at Willingham's plight. - Willamette Week EDIT

67% The White Crow (2019) ... overall a pleasant and beautifully presented look at the artistry of dance, Cold War politics and a complicated man. - Willamette Week EDIT

81% Dogman (2019) Although Dogman suffers from a few plot holes, it is a visually gorgeous character study that shows you can kick a dog only so many times before he bites back-even if he's the runt of the litter. - Willamette Week EDIT

1/4 30% Red Joan (2019) ... largely devoid of the intrigue that usually accompanies such weighty topics. - Willamette Week EDIT

3/4 57% Pet Sematary (2019) Pet Sematary isn't perfect, but its flaws are minimal enough to make it a fun and hair-raising escape from the actual horrors of the world, which is exactly what one wants from anything tied to Stephen King. - Willamette Week EDIT

4/4 94% Us (2019) As good as these performances are, Us is undoubtedly a film carried by its female characters and the brilliant actresses playing them. - Willamette Week EDIT

3/4 71% Climax (2019) The paranoia that slowly overcomes the group is masterfully presented... However, the characters are lesser for the illogical way they hasten themselves to incredible cruelty and violence. - Willamette Week EDIT

69% Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Rothe shines in this film as she did in the original, and so does most of the supporting cast, but her charms aren't enough to make Happy Death Day 2U a multiverse you'd be happy to be stuck duplicating. - Willamette Week EDIT
