Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
66% Life (2017) It's Alien for short attention spans, Arrival for non-pacifists, with some remnant of ambition toward something headier. On that count, it falls short, but as a final-girl structured horror film, it has plenty of imaginative moments.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) As cash grabs go, this one is delightfully unconcerned with coolness, neither shying away from its chintzy roots nor ironically embracing them.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

94% Prevenge (2017) Perversely prodding at all that we take for granted about pregnancy, Lowe has found a pitch-black, occasionally profound story about a woman's loss of control over her body and mind, pulled between forces of life and death.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

44% The Belko Experiment (2017) The Belko Experiment is the kind of film many people will walk out of, and those who stick it out to the end just to see the curtain pulled back will be sorely let down by an ending so anti-climactic I could spoil it right now and you'd ask, "That's it?"‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

90% Raw (2017) A French-Belgian horror film that combines flesh eating with the horrors of college hazing to spin a loopy parable of abstinence and indulgence, bingeing and purging.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) If only Beauty and the Beast were just a collection of stills, like a fancy Annie Leibowitz spread for some glossy quarterly edition of Disney Adventures. Unfortunately, it's over two hours long.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

67% Before I Fall (2017) The film mostly retains its humanity, largely thanks to Deutch's performance and Russo-Young's insistence on keeping her at the forefront of almost every shot.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) My Life As a Zucchini is a deft work of empathy, and unlike a few of its fellow animation Oscar contenders, it works on a more intimate scale, without a big message or master thesis to carry it to its conclusion.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

25% The Comedian (2017) This is a film that reaches its emotional climax among a crowd of senior citizens at a nursing home singing a rousing song about the difficulty of bowel movements.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

12% Collateral Beauty (2016) The cast feels checked out: Winslet and Norton, two attractive and charismatic performers, have never looked more painted and tired.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

94% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) By replacing the class system of Victorian England with the dynamic of the occupier and occupied, Park has tapped into something uniquely complex about a chapter of history that is rarely explored.‐ The Verge

54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) The Purge's satire is not of a particularly subtle or sharp variety, but it's deeply effective.‐ The Verge

90% Green Room (2016) The outsized circumstances end up making it funnier, too -- the film has a kind of locked-jaw sardonic sense of humor that is the perfect counterbalance to its moody camerawork and soundtrack.‐ The Verge

No Score Yet Dead Slow Ahead (2015) It's a rare thing to get to see a film that is capable of provoking that kind of revelation.‐ The Verge

10% The Forest (2016) With jump scares and cornball demon faces lurking around every corner, the more ambient (and important) existential despair of Aokigahara is lost.‐ The Verge

98% Inside Out (2015) I hope its real, quite sophisticated lesson -- that it's okay to feel things other than happiness sometimes, and that all our emotions help us grow up -- comes through all the bouncing marbles and glitter showers and rainbow pony princesses.‐ The Verge
