T-Meter Title | Year
52% The Hummingbird Project (2019) The film has a great story and some fine people telling it. Too bad, then, that more consideration wasn't given to how end it. Rather than concluding with up or down, or success or failure, it just sort of peters out. - TheFilmJournal.com (Ohio) EDIT

83% Aftermath (Poklosie) (2013) Despite an unnecessary and rather gruesome plot turn near the end, Aftermath remains a terrifically acted and well-told story that will open a lot of eyes in its portrayal of despicable human behavior. - The Patriot Ledger EDIT
