Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Bad Grandmas (2017) The embarrassment a few fine, august actors have to go through in the name of 'comedy' is lost on a movie that never warrants a single laugh.‐ Film Journal International

81% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) A faithful adaptation of a classic manga that drags at times but offers enough exciting moments at others to make it worthwhile.‐ Film Journal International

B- 29% All I See Is You (2017) Won't be for everyone, and some people are going to absolutely loathe it, but it's a lovely artistic character exploration that is quite compelling when you're willing to go along for the ride.‐ The Tracking Board

A 87% Novitiate (2017) Betts proves herself to be a fantastic storyteller ... Intense and riveting dramatic storytelling we rarely get to see in any given year.‐ The Tracking Board

50% Killing Gunther (2017) Won't be the comeback Schwarzenegger fans may be hoping for, but there are enough funny moments in Killam's directorial debut to augur a promising future in film comedy.‐ Film Journal International

B 52% Wonder Wheel (2017) Neither Allen's best movie nor his worst, although it's probably a stronger than his last few, mainly due to Winslet's fabulousness.‐ The Tracking Board

C- 59% The Foreigner (2017) It's the type of action movie that just feels dated and not in a fun way either.‐ The Tracking Board

83% Haze (2017) With nothing particularly new or revelatory to offer, Haze is a terrible, pointless movie. ‐ Film Journal International

D+ 72% Wonderstruck (2017) Wonderstruck is probably the biggest disappointment in Todd Haynes' entire career. How one can go from the masterpiece that was Carol or any of his other films to this is mindboggling.‐ The Tracking Board

100% The Legend Of 420 (2017) A decent, highly informational doc that takes a lighter look at a subject some might take far more seriously than others. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
B+ 93% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Having such freedom and such an illustrious cast makes The Meyerowitz Stories one of Baumbach's best movies so far.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2017
B 76% Last Flag Flying (2017) Last Flag Flying is a comedy with a lower case "c," so if you're expecting a lot of big laughs from this story about a man mourning the death of his son, you should probably adjust your expectations.‐ The Tracking Board

78% Pearl Jam: Let's Play Two (2017) A decent concert film but also a touching tribute to Eddie Vedder's childhood love for the Chicago Cubs, which should make it a favorite among Pearl Jam and Cubs fans alike.‐ Film Journal International

3.5/5 55% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) It's a decent character piece for Washington to break away from that same cocksure role we've seen him play so many times before‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 38% I Love You, Daddy (2017) [C.K.] has made the type of masterful picture that might put him into serious consideration as a filmmaker...‐ Den of Geek

84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) A welcome return to form for Dayton and Faris‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2017
92% The Force (2017) A fascinating doc just being able to see how things really work within the police department compared to what we see in press conferences and through the media.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2017
No Score Yet Welcome to Willits (2017) A twisty redneck genre flick that partially thrives on its odd stoner humor, then loses something as it shifts to something far darker.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
15% Friend Request (2017) Friend Request is either the funniest bad horror movie ever made or, more likely, just a bad movie that was never meant to be a comedy.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
4/5 95% The Disaster Artist (2017) The Disaster Artist comes off a lot like Ed Wood or even American Splendor, as it feels like there's always multiple layers to what Franco is doing.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 83% Darkest Hour (2017) Darkest Hour showcases a performance by Gary Oldman that is so good, you'll often forget you're watching an actor working from a script.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
0% Gun Shy (2017) Antonio Banderas hams it up in this dumber than dumb action-comedy that always reaches for the lowest hanging fruit for laughs.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
C- 10% Tulip Fever (2017) Good luck understanding how any of this might appeal to modern moviegoers. It isn't awful, but it's needlessly convoluted and dull, dull, dull.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
No Score Yet Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story (2017) A beautiful film documenting some of the most groundbreaking rock music of the '70s and the major contribution Mick Ronson offered well beyond being "Bowie's guitar player."‐ Film Journal International

43% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) After a summer full of disappointing sequels, it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that we're getting yet another.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2017
50% England Is Mine (2017) Mopey and pretentious, just like the real Morrissey, but lacking the music that made his work with The Smiths so influential. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
74% Shot Caller (2017) A brilliantly made film, unlike anything else out there, and it teaches a valuable lesson about what the penal system's cycle of violence can do to an honest man.‐ Film Journal International

A- 82% Patti Cake$ (2017) Aspects of the film recalls the early work of Damien Chazelle. If Jasper can continue to deliver on this level, his career may wind up being just as impressive.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2017
39% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) An above-average, obscenity-laden buddy comedy that mostly excels due to the brilliant comic pairing of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
D+ 90% Good Time (2017) The Safdie Brothers box well outside their weight class with this abrasive crime-thriller.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2017
B+ 50% The Glass Castle (2017) An erratic but emotional adaptation of Jeannette Wallis' memoir.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2017
76% 68 Kill (2017) This bona-fide grindhouse film constantly goes for violent and gory shock value, yet manages to connect more through its hilarious female characters.‐ Film Journal International

63% Savage Dog (2017) Takes filmmaking incompetence to a whole new level. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2017
4/5 100% Lowlife (2017) Lowlife features a lot of amazing new talent that's likely to make this a popular cult hit.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2017
8/10 82% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) Fans of John Wick and Kill Bill should generally be impressed with what director Jung has done to put a twist on the typical revenge thriller.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2017
87% Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk (2017) A suitably punky, fast-paced doc that may be long and overly talky but is undeniably comprehensive. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2017
6/10 76% Killing Ground (2017) One thing Power mostly gets right is that he spends enough time with both the predators and their victims, separately, so that you start to care for the latter even if you don't fully understand the motivations of the former.‐ IGN Movies

No Score Yet Who The F**k Is That Guy? The Fabulous Journey of Michael Alago (2017) While it may not be the best-constructed rock doc [...] Who the F**k is still a satisfyingly quick 77-minute film.‐ Film Journal International

8/10 92% Dunkirk (2017) There's so much to absorb and appreciate in this movie that one viewing just might not be enough.‐ The Weekend Warrior

0% The Gracefield Incident (2017) A prime candidate for worst movie of the year.‐ Film Journal International

1/5 17% Wish Upon (2017) Never goes far enough to truly scare anyone. Even easy-to-please teens might wish for their time back.‐ New York Daily News

2.5/5 80% Brigsby Bear (2017) It seems content at being just another Saturday Night Live short.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
14% Battle Scars (2017) A serious drama about something with which many soldiers have to contend, needlessly diluted by a terrible crime thriller premise. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2017
7.5/10 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Like The Fifth Element, this will grow on people with time ... meant more for discerning moviegoers with strange taste and sensibilities. ‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2017
No Score Yet Undercover Grandpa (2017) A mind-numbing premise that's often embarrassing to its illustrious cast.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
13% 2:22 (2017) An intriguing exploration of fate vs. circumstance and coincidence that ends up being far better than it should be, but only if it's not taken too seriously.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
8.5/10 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) The best-realized Spider-Man movie in terms of making the character current with what's been done with Marvel Studios' other movies...‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
8/10 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) I'm going to end this review on some sort of hyperbolic pull quote that will look good on Twitter and/or RottenTomatoes that can be used in the film's marketing.‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2017
9/10 93% Baby Driver (2017) A grand entry into more straightforward American genre film-mixing by Wright, while still maintaining all the things we've loved about his previous movies.‐ The Weekend Warrior
