Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/5 96% Paterson (2016) It's absolutely worth hunting down for any passionate cinephile. ‐
Posted Jan 4, 2017
5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Coming together with a pace that is deliberate but never sluggish, Moonlight is a beautifully human cinematic experience, and something to behold. ‐
Posted Jan 2, 2017
2.5/5 31% Passengers (2016) By the time Passengers hits its underwhelming finale, you almost wish that it didn't start out so strong, just because it's basically all a set up for disappointment. ‐
Posted Dec 15, 2016
4.5/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) If the franchise can continually pull off blockbusters with the same level of creative energy and the proper amount of reverence as Rogue One does, there's every reason to expect greatness for years to come. ‐
Posted Dec 13, 2016
4.5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) What Whedon and Marvel have created here is not just extraordinary, but one of the most entertaining and satisfying comic book movies yet. ‐
Posted Dec 11, 2016
4/5 61% Allied (2016) Allied proves that Zemeckis can still tell great, small-scaled stories, crafting a tight, compelling period drama driven by a pair of fantastic lead performances. ‐
Posted Nov 23, 2016
4/5 71% Bleed For This (2016) Impressive, unique, and inspiring. ‐
Posted Nov 23, 2016
4.5/5 95% Moana (2016) A wonderful and culturally-inspired fairy tale that captivates and thrills while shining the spotlight on a mythos rarely explored by Hollywood. ‐
Posted Nov 21, 2016
1.5/5 21% Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) With absolutely no kind of pacing or structure, the movie just ambles narratively from one scene to the next, never putting together a full story let alone any kind of arcs or character development. ‐
Posted Oct 25, 2016
3.5/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) There are certainly shades of Iron Man and Thor, but what the film brings to the table to balance out its familiar elements is some of the most bombastic, exciting and beautiful action sequences we've seen in modern blockbusters. ‐
Posted Oct 23, 2016
4/5 82% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) One of the biggest cinematic surprises of the year. ‐
Posted Oct 20, 2016
3/5 51% The Accountant (2016) The Accountant doesn't really amount to much, mostly sticking to boilerplate, standard action setups as some really great actors regularly pop up on the screen... but it does have something legitimately special in its hero. ‐
Posted Oct 14, 2016
3.5/5 43% The Girl on the Train (2016) A big part of the enjoyment stems from Emily Blunt's presence, as the actress gives a magnificent performance in The Girl On The Train that arguably ranks as the best of her career to date. ‐
Posted Oct 4, 2016
3.5/5 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) A movie that perfectly understands its strengths and capitalizes on them, crafting a fun story for a fun ensemble. ‐
Posted Sep 15, 2016
2/5 85% Sully (2016) There are shockingly few scenes that manage to add to the story in a meaningful way, and it results in more drag than a plane taking off with its flaps up. ‐
Posted Sep 8, 2016
1/5 20% Yoga Hosers (2016) Yoga Hosers feels underwritten and not thoughtfully made -- the opposite of the trademarks in Kevin Smith's earlier work. ‐
Posted Sep 1, 2016
4.5/5 60% War Dogs (2016) A much different film than what we've seen from Todd Phillips in the past -- but it's also the best movie he's made so far, and a great late summer surprise. ‐
Posted Aug 16, 2016
4/5 86% Pete's Dragon (2016) David Lowery has crafted a beautiful, earnest family film with wonderful emotion and pathos that should see it continually watched for years. ‐
Posted Aug 11, 2016
2.5/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) Suicide Squad isn't exactly the movie that audiences are hoping for, and not the bounce-back that the series needed after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. ‐
Posted Aug 2, 2016
2/5 56% Jason Bourne (2016) This is the first one that just wears its tropes on its sleeve -- making it feel uninspired and artificial (two adjectives that particularly sting when you consider that this is the character's big screen return after a nine year hiatus). ‐
Posted Jul 26, 2016
4/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) While Lin's success with big battles and explosions are hardly a surprise given his background in the Fast & Furious franchise, that in no way undercuts how jaw-dropping and thrilling Star Trek Beyond's biggest set pieces are. ‐
Posted Jul 15, 2016
3.5/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) No, Paul Feig's Ghostbusters is not as good as Ivan Reitman's 1984 hit. But it is still a fun blockbuster worthy of curiosity and delivering a great number of laughs. ‐
Posted Jul 10, 2016
4.5/5 97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) It's off-beat in all the best ways, has fantastic actors all delivering fantastic performances, and is a uproarious adventure with endless heart. ‐
Posted Jun 23, 2016
4/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) On a scale of Cars 2 to Toy Story 3, Finding Dory is about on par with Monsters University - delivering more of characters that audiences love, while not quite reaching the level of its predecessor. ‐
Posted Jun 10, 2016
4/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) Between the fantastic talent of and chemistry between Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, and the vision of James Wan, The Conjuring 2 demonstrates incredible potential for the emerging franchise. ‐
Posted Jun 2, 2016
2.5/5 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) A less-than-mediocre follow-up with a small handful of interesting ideas. ‐
Posted May 23, 2016
3.5/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) [It] isn't as good as its predecessor, but it's a fun comedy made by smart, talented people, and it's certainly a lot better than you would expect. ‐
Posted May 19, 2016
5/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) The detective genre has persisted because it has everything you could want from a film - intrigue, action, suspense, romance, adventure and humanity - and Black's latest delivers all of that. ‐
Posted May 16, 2016
3.5/5 57% Money Monster (2016) A taut thriller that you'll find yourself vaguely remembering eight years from now as being "pretty good." ‐
Posted May 13, 2016
5/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Bringing together tremendous character dynamics; bold structure; an emotional narrative; and spell-binding, fun action sequences, it's everything a blockbuster should be. ‐
Posted Apr 13, 2016
4/5 49% Hardcore Henry (2016) Most certainly not a movie for everyone, but it's a film that's blessed with the clear knowledge of exactly who it's for and delivers specifically for that crowd. ‐
Posted Apr 8, 2016
3.5/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Shot beautifully, and with a fantastic sense of wonder within the world being created, which translates to big-screen magic ‐
Posted Apr 4, 2016
60% War on Everyone (2017) If this kind of pitch black humor has a way of tickling your funny bone, however, then you should prepare to see one of the most hysterical films of your life. ‐
Posted Mar 15, 2016
86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) Like [Dazed and Confused], the movie is a celebration of the fun and freedom of youth, and it's simply in capturing this spirit that makes it succeed. ‐
Posted Mar 14, 2016
76% Keanu (2016) A movie that's equal parts ridiculous, adorable, and laugh-out-loud funny. ‐
Posted Mar 14, 2016
2/5 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) The word "adequate" is an accurate one in describing the opening two chapters of The Divergent Series, but Allegiant is the first to really be legitimately bad. ‐
Posted Mar 10, 2016
4/5 53% Triple 9 (2016) It's pretty clear that the filmmaking team has seen Michael Mann's Heat at least a few times - but that's only intended as a compliment. ‐
Posted Feb 25, 2016
4/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) It's not to be taken too seriously, but Eddie The Eagle definitely succeeds as a silly, entertaining underdog story. ‐
Posted Feb 25, 2016
4/5 90% A War (Krigen) (2016) A War never shies away from the true horror of its central subject matter, and succeeds in feeling visceral and emotionally powerful. ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
4.5/5 84% Deadpool (2016) Deadpool is a blissfully unique and hilarious action-packed blockbuster that stands as one of the best big-screen superhero origin stories that we've had the pleasure of seeing. ‐
Posted Feb 6, 2016
4/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) While it's not as narratively strong as most of the Coens' other great works, there's a good chance we'll be calling it one of the funniest movies of 2016. ‐
Posted Feb 5, 2016
2.5/5 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) A better fit for the Jane Austen crowd than those going in expecting tons of enthusiastic bloodletting and badass zombie action. ‐
Posted Feb 5, 2016
3.5/5 87% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) A vividly entertaining adventure story with beautiful animation and a solid way to continue the arc of the titular protagonist. ‐
Posted Jan 26, 2016
5/5 93% Anomalisa (2015) Beautiful, deep, cerebral and poetic. ‐
Posted Dec 31, 2015
5/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) A return to Tarantino's small-scaled, dialogue-heavy, non-linear storytelling, bloody, shocking origins. Quite simply, it's one of his best films. ‐
Posted Dec 23, 2015
3.5/5 60% Sisters (2015) A demonstration that when you get enough funny people together, it often results in a good amount of laughs. ‐
Posted Dec 19, 2015
3.5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Unquestionably the best Star Wars movie we've seen in 30 years, and an undeniably entertaining ride - but one certainly not without a collection of narrative flaws. ‐
Posted Dec 16, 2015
4/5 88% The Big Short (2015) It tackles complex subject matters with a proportionately complex narrative structure, but with creativity and smart sensibilities that come together as an equally thought-provoking and amusing film. ‐
Posted Dec 14, 2015
4/5 94% Carol (2015) While the narrative on the whole is ultimately very straightforward and uncomplicated, the weight is provided by some tremendous performances, incredible style, and a magnificent score. ‐
Posted Nov 24, 2015
3.5/5 61% Legend (2015) Serves as a solid vehicle for Tom Hardy, and while it's never boring, it also doesn't carry a great deal of weight. ‐
