T-Meter Title | Year
5/10 81% Space Dogs (2019) In the end, I feel as though Space Dogs has a lot to say about... something. I'm just not really sure what it is. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% My Name Is Pedro (2020) It is an uneven and overly loving documentary from a freshman director, but we can also hope that it is also an inspiration for educators of the next generation. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 41% Centigrade (2020) Centigrade was a difficult movie to watch, and while technically well made, it is not very enjoyable. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 60% Project Power (2020) The kind of catastrophic mess that is just too incompetent and earnest to be taken seriously. Instead, through ill-defined alchemy, it becomes unintentionally hilariously entertaining. - Film Threat EDIT

2/10 53% Waiting for the Barbarians (2020) An emotionally brutal and slow-paced film that has a few good performances and not a lot to say. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet Why We Breathe (2019) While Why We Breathe won't be on anyone's top ten lists, I do hope that Parks keeps working at it. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet My Father, the Spy (2019) There is a great movie buried in My Father the Spy, but this is not it. - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 28% Clover (2020) Clover is a good idea that never lives up to its potential. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 96% Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton As Himself (2013) While I hope one day, a more nuanced picture of him emerges, for now, this is a beautiful tribute to a legendary individual. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 75% Tammy's Always Dying (2019) There is a breathtaking level of honest human emotion in Tammy's Always Dying that never seems to bleed over into melodrama. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Girls Game (2019) Girls Game is an entertaining and informative documentary, despite having a series of overly similar stories in the first 20 minutes. It is a strong first effort from a new director, and I hope we see more of her in the future. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 67% To Your Last Death (2019) Despite its obvious flaws, To Your Last Death, is one of the best action/horror films I've seen in a long time. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Cousins (2019) Peppered with some really charming or romantically charged scenes that are dragged down by its more poorly executed moments and a less than competent translation, I'd suggest waiting for the remake. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 100% Chameleon (2019) Chameleon is a promising early effort by a talented young director and a difficult plodding script from a not so talented writer. It's just too bad they are the same person. - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet Bathroom Stalls & Parking Lots (2019) We desperately need a film to explore that world and make a serious comment on it. Bathroom Stalls & Parking Lots just isn't that film. - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 25% Corporate Animals (2019) It is a fantastic idea that never gels into anything worth watching, and I suggest you miss it. - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet The Streets Run Red (2017) If you're going to watch The Streets Run Red (and I suggest you don't), you will need a strong stomach and/or an utter contempt for your fellow humans. - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet Night (2019) Focusing on the exploitive excess, instead of the exploration of darker themes, Night is little more than amateur torture... - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Underneath (2018) It is a glimpse into a new talent who I hope we see more from in the future. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% Afghan Cycles (2019) On the surface all Afghan Cycles is talking about is riding a bicycle. On a deeper level, it is talking about individual freedom and autonomy. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Gonzalo Fonseca: Membra Disjecta & A Life in Stone (2019) While we get an astonishing amount of access into his life and work, the major problem with Gonzalo Fonseca: Membra Disjecta & A Life in Stone is its reverence...its a pretty documentary and vaguely interesting so I can recommend it. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Manson: Music from an Unsound Mind (2019) I will say it is worth watching, but you might want to keep a finger ready on the fast forward button. - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet The Witches of Dumpling Farm (Wicked Witches) (2018) It's a bad sign when you fall asleep during a horror movie, right? - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet 3 Lives (2019) 3 Lives is an uninspired mess of a film that fails in every aspect. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 83% Second Star On The Right (2019) Heartbreaking and uplifting. Second Star on the Right is an intimate slice-of-life drama with elements of magical realism. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
4/10 No Score Yet The Dark Within (2019) The Dark Within is a movie that asks the viewer, what is real? By the end of the film, however, I just did not care. As a film, it just can't seem to decide what it wants to be and lacks a sense of self. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
7/10 No Score Yet A Bright Light: Karen and the Process (2018) A Bright Light is a beautiful love note to a forgotten artist, a tragic story of wasted potential, and an exploration into the primal urge to create. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 67% FP2: Beats of Rage (2018) Mr. Trost's major strength is that he has found a way to make purposefully "bad" movies for comic effect. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
1/10 No Score Yet The Dirty Kind (2019) In this age of ironic and meta-entertainment, you might find yourself tempted to believe that this is some kind of performance art. Some kind of Andy Kaufmanesque joke played by a wily comic genius. Unfortunately, I don't think that is the case. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Renegade Dreamers (2019) Renegade Dreamers is a documentary that doesn't ask it's viewers to do anything beyond ask themselves, "When did you stop caring?" - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/10 No Score Yet Game Girls (2018) There is a lot that Game Girls forces the viewer to grapple with... but the danger of focusing on and fetishizing a single story is that the audience is encouraged to extrapolate that this is the experience for everyone in Skid Row. - Film Threat EDIT
