Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
39% Mary Shelley (2018) Mary Shelley isn't a perfect movie...But the movie performs an important task: It gets people eager to learn more about Shelley, one of the most fascinating women in English history.‐ Refinery29

26% Bright (2017) Bright did not care about its women characters - though clearly, [Noomi] Rapace and [Lucy] Fry did. It's a shame the movie's script wasn't strong enough to communicate all the work they had done to fill out their characters' backgrounds. ‐ Refinery29

53% Across the Universe (2007) Logically, I know that love isn't all you need. For the hour and a half I spent rewatching Across the Universe, though, I thought it was.‐ Refinery29

85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Ingrid Goes West never gives our protagonist a moment of enlightenment, during which she realizes social media is the source of all of her problems (spoiler: it's not). I don't expect that moment to arrive for me, either.‐ Refinery29

92% Good Time (2017) But this isn't Edward Cullen; this is Connie Nikas. He's the manipulative, selfish, absolutely electric antagonist of a movie that will bury itself under my skin just as much as that one scene did.‐ Refinery29

86% American Made (2017) Looking back, it seemed that Barry Seal lived his life so that, one day, it could be adapted into a film. That's just how wild it was.‐ Refinery29

85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Unlike the election, you'll be able to cheer while watching Battle of the Sexes.‐ Refinery29

85% It (2017) The kids don't need a clown to scare them - their parents are villainous enough.‐ Refinery29

87% Wind River (2017) In Wind River, you'll be forced to watch, and you'll be forced to listen. After all, as extreme and disturbing as the events depicted in Wind River are, they're not fantastical.‐ Refinery29

80% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) An Inconvenient Sequel is an inconvenient reminder that our government is no longer committed to ensuring our planet's future.‐ Refinery29

44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Ghost in the Shell may be a spectacle for the ages, but its casting broke the magnificent spell of visual storytelling for me.‐ Refinery29

16% The Circle (2017) In severely under-developing the women's friendship, The Circle missed out on an opportunity to root an unbelievable story in the relatable, murky trenches of loyalty, jealousy, and intimacy.‐ Refinery29

25% Unforgettable (2017) Unforgettable's shallow characterization and ill-conceived resurrection of the offensive "crazy woman" trope does all of us a disservice.‐ Refinery29

81% Casting JonBenét (2017) No recreation can bring us closer to the truth, but perhaps this weird work of art can.‐ Refinery29

82% Patti Cake$ (2017) Patti Cake$ is a great movie. But for someone who also grew up with big dreams in New Jersey, it's downright cathartic.‐ Refinery29

46% The Discovery (2017) With its lofty twists and aching questions, philosophy - not people - becomes The Discovery's most interesting feature.‐ Refinery29

76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) So, though the film cranks through its dastardly plot with leering Hitchcockian suspense, the drama My Cousin Rachel is also a bleak comedy about people who make ridiculous mistakes at the altar of love.‐ Refinery29

78% The Little Hours (2017) With its timeless approach to comedy, I found The Little Hours delivered a brief balm to the frantic, 24/7 news cycle awaiting outside the theater.‐ Refinery29

93% Baby Driver (2017) After seeing Baby Driver, every other action movie - no matter the high production value and star power - will just seem lazy.‐ Refinery29
