T-Meter Title | Year
57% Shook (2021) "Shook" is done in by its final reveal, which manages to be simultaneously improbable and conventional. For engagement, we'll have to look somewhere else. - New York Times EDIT

100% Derek DelGaudio's In & Of Itself (2020) It is not often that a magic show makes you ponder not just the how, but the why. - New York Times EDIT

No Score Yet Rogue City (Bronx) (2020) Violent, law-defying cops would be a tough sell at any time, but "Rogue City" is oblivious to the changed context surrounding their stories. They don't hold much romantic allure nowadays. - New York Times EDIT

97% What the Constitution Means to Me (2020) This is a highly personal take, not a historical or legal lecture. Yet Schreck succeeds in widening her autobiographical play into a paean for basic fairness... - New York Times EDIT

88% #Alive (2020) "#Alive" is a nifty little thriller that proves that you can always find signs of life in the most undead of genres. - New York Times EDIT

80% The Beach House (2020) After a dillydallying slow start, Brown ratchets up the tension efficiently, summoning a mix of gross-out body invasion, eco-mutation and large-scale cosmic dread on a small budget. - New York Times EDIT

75% Lost Bullet (Balle Perdue) (2020) This impressively lean French thriller wastes nothing in its quest to deliver the goods. - New York Times EDIT

90% Blood Quantum (2020) You think you've seen every way to dispatch a zombie, and then someone applies a chainsaw to a skull in a particularly satisfying manner. - New York Times EDIT

86% The Plagues of Breslau (Plagi Breslau) (2018) A pulsating rage at the way society neglects women in particular, its weakest members in general, courses through the movie. More than the displays of flayed flesh, it's what sticks. - New York Times EDIT

37% Spenser Confidential (2020) The prospect of spending more time with this crew is not a bad one. - New York Times EDIT

100% One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2019) Ueda... manages to reinvigorate two of the most tired tropes cluttering our media landscape: art as meta commentary on art, and explosive diarrhea. - New York Times EDIT

66% Lady and the Tramp (2019) Cynics might assume this means that Charlie Bean's film is the runt of the litter. But the movie is middle-of-the-road rather than bad - hard to hate and harder to love. - New York Times EDIT

80% Little Monsters (2019) The charismatic Nyong'o is easily the best part of this feeble Australian horror comedy... - New York Times EDIT

44% Tall Girl (2019) America's mood has changed, and many viewers might not feel much empathy for the small-minded grievances of wealthy teens who drive to school in S.U.V.s. - New York Times EDIT

38% Point Blank (2019) If anything, the film emanates a startling ineptitude, unable as it is to clear some basic standards of craftsmanship. - New York Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2019
44% Murder Mystery (2019) Aniston and Sandler have a goofy, relaxed rapport that is often amusing despite the film's best efforts to smother any sign of verve. - New York Times EDIT

78% The Legend of Cocaine Island (2018) Love is not judgmental about Hyden, and lets him be his sunny, deluded self - down to a willful obliviousness about the realities of drug trafficking and use. - New York Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2019
88% Soni (2018) Ayr does not offer any tension-releasing catharsis, making his film efficiently disquieting in its own unassuming manner. - New York Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2019
95% The World Is Yours (Le monde ou rien) (2018) The young director Romain Gavras does not reinvent the comic caper in the French film "The World Is Yours," but he revitalizes that genre with pop verve, goofy humor and visual sophistication. - New York Times EDIT

3/4 68% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) This is the show at its best, effectively balancing wry humor with a straightforward affection for the Christmas songbook (the regular one, not some hipster alt-holiday universe version). - New York Post EDIT

91% The Wiz Live! (2015) Imagine that: a TV musical you could enjoy and not just hate-watch for the sake of a few pithy tweets. NBC might well be on the right track. - New York Post EDIT

4/5 77% OSS 117: Le Caire Nid d'Espions (OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies) (2008) - Time Out EDIT

3/6 74% Avenue Montaigne (2006) Love is in the air, obviously, and so is the smell of mothballs. Fans of Diane Johnson's books (Le Divorce) may fetishize the Paris depicted in Avenue Montaigne, but at times it feels like a diorama of bourgeois natives. - Time Out EDIT
