Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
40% Den of Thieves (2018) The loser is the audience for Den of Thieves, an over-the-top crime saga mainly indicating that its writer/director has seen Michael Mann's Heat too many times.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Midnight Man (2018) Veterans Englund and Shaye admirably give it their all, but their best efforts are not enough to elevate the subpar material directed in mechanical fashion by Zariwny.‐ Hollywood Reporter

18% Forever My Girl (2018) The two leads are both highly appealing, with Roe credible as a country music superstar.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Showdown in Manila (2018) A mishmash of action movie and buddy cop clichés rendered in incompetent fashion, this wink-wink homage to 1991's Showdown in Little Tokyo makes its inspiration seem like a classic.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
No Score Yet Delirium (2018) Unfortunately, settings alone don't make a movie, and this cliché-ridden effort feels indistinguishable from the countless similarly themed horror films that have preceded it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
25% Inside (2018) Inside somehow manages to be remarkably devoid of suspense throughout its brief running time.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
No Score Yet Blur Circle (2016) Despite its flaws, the film proves very moving at times.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
0% Acts of Violence (2018) Acts of Violence evaporates from your mind while you're watching it.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Surge of Power: Revenge of the Sequel (2018) Lexerot and Roth may be godawful filmmakers, but they certainly have one hell of a Rolodex.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
No Score Yet Madtown (2018) Madtown is an intriguing drama featuring well-drawn characters and incisive dialogue.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
70% In the Land of Pomegranates (2018) [Beller's] deep-rooted empathy and compassion is plainly evident in her latest effort, but it's not enough to compensate for the tedium engendered by the meandering debates whose impact ultimately adds up to very little.‐ Hollywood Reporter

55% 47 Meters Down (2017) But on its own B-movie terms 47 Meters Down works just fine, not wearing out its welcome thanks to its quick set-up, rapid pacing and brief running time.‐ Hollywood Reporter

6% Hangman (2017) This formulaic thriller is m_di_c_e.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
No Score Yet Night Accident (Tunku Kyrsyk) (2017) A hugely charming testament to the kindness of strangers.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
31% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Whatever charms the first two movies possessed (and they were considerable thanks to the talented and appealing cast) have been thoroughly lost in this soulless installment.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
78% Sundowners (2017) Exuding such a relaxed feel that it's not surprising that its title doesn't appear onscreen until nearly the half-hour mark, Sundowners never strains too hard for its considerable laughs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
43% Permanent (2017) Arquette is charmingly endearing as the frustrated Jeanne, Wilson movingly conveys his character's vulnerability as well as his bluster and McLean is terrific as the beleaguered young girl desperate to have a mane like Farrah Fawcett's.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
67% Desolation (2017) Too subtle for its own good.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
100% Killing for Love (Das Versprechen) (2017) Featuring compelling real-life figures who practically invite casting guesses for the inevitable Hollywood dramatization, Killing for Love should easily satisfy viewers who can't get enough of this stuff.‐ Hollywood Reporter

63% Kaleidoscope (2017) Provides juicy opportunities for its leads to deliver tour-de-force performances - and they don't disappoint.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
75% Hollow in the Land (2017) Hollow in the Land traffics in familiar rural thriller territory. But it features an excellent performance from its lead actress and a strong atmosphere of moody tension courtesy of its writer/director.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
54% Bullet Head (2017) The film's main draw is its cast, all of whom have seen more illustrious career days but nonetheless can still deliver the goods.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
50% Kepler's Dream (2017) Thankfully devoid of the fantasy elements endemic to so many cinematic versions of YA novels, Kepler's Dream proves a modest but diverting family film charmer.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2017
94% The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee (2017) Chronicling its subject's life and career in fascinating detail, The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee will prove catnip to journalism and political buffs, not to mention anyone who cares about the free press and its role in our democracy.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2017
No Score Yet Slumber (2017) Although relatively subdued for much of its running time, Slumber eventually devolves into a lengthy, over-the-top climax that's both visually and narratively cheesy.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
50% Love Beats Rhymes (2017) Despite its frequently clunky dramaturgy, the film makes some interesting points while providing an excellent showcase for Banks' considerable onscreen charisma.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
83% Big Time (2017) Occasionally gets bogged down in the sort of minutiae that would have been better left on the cutting room floor, but it also provides an insightful depiction of the personal and professional travails that inevitably accompany career success.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
No Score Yet Maynard (2018) Maynard proves as moving as it is informative.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
No Score Yet Rodents of Unusual Size (2017) Depicting the resilience of both the nutria and the Louisianans who've endured their presence for many years, Rodents of Unusual Size proves enjoyably quirky and informative.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
No Score Yet Saving Brinton (2017) Anyone who loves movies is bound to love Saving Brinton.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
100% I Remember You (Eg Man Big) (2017) Compellingly creepy, I Remember You should well please the many fans of the genre.‐ Hollywood Reporter

20% Destined (2017) Unfortunately, the two stories add up to less than the sum of their parts, with the intertwining narratives failing to comment on each other in sufficiently resonant fashion.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
67% A Murder in Mansfield (2017) A true crime saga packing an emotional punch.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
No Score Yet Art Show Bingo (2017) Destined to be forgotten by viewers before the end credits have finished rolling, the film features some pretty people and scenic Virginia Beach locations. But that's pretty much it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2017
100% Requiem for a Running Back (2017) A deeply personal investigation into an important subject.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2017
83% Gold Star (2017) It's Vaughn, still looking dashing despite his obvious frailty, who gives the film its emotional core.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
100% Destination Unknown (2017) Yes, there have been countless Holocaust-themed documentaries released in recent years. But Destination Unknown represents a worthy addition to the canon if only for its historical importance.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
92% Intent to Destroy (2017) All of this material proves fascinating. It's a shame, then, that so much of Intent to Destroy plays like a special feature for the DVD edition of The Promise.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
29% Hello Again (2017) While Hello Again has been brought to the big screen, it has not been brought to anything resembling cinematic life.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
No Score Yet Thank You for Your Service (2016) ... it's not the expert commentary, as illuminating as it is, that gives the film its power. Rather, it's the handful of veterans who discuss their emotional struggle... ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
No Score Yet Repatriation (2017) Featuring a terrific performance by Ryan Barton-Grimley in the lead role, Repatriation is a modest indie film worth seeking out.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
83% Dream Boat (2017) The well-chosen profile subjects prove both engaging and sympathetic in their fears and desires, giving the film a much-needed emotional resonance.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
60% Let There Be Light (2017) While Christian audiences will no doubt embrace this heavily proselytizing drama, secular viewers are likely to feel like they've been accosted by a street corner preacher.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) [Offers] enough enjoyable Masterpiece Theater-style moments to entice Anglophiles and those who can never get enough of Ebenezer Scrooge.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
34% Jigsaw (2017) Considering the long amount of time since the last installment, you'd think that more effort would have been put into creatively reviving the franchise.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
57% Acts of Vengeance (2017) Banderas proves more than capable of playing the sort of strong, silent type who resorts to vigilante justice.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) Teller, continuing his streak of strong dramatic performances that include Whiplash and Bleed for This, delivers a powerful turn that is all the more effective for its restraint.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
100% Aida's Secrets (2017) Viewers will likely feel the urge to contact a genealogist after seeing Alon and Shaul Schwarz's fascinating and moving documentary about amazing revelations concerning their own family.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
81% Tragedy Girls (2017) Attempting to combine Clueless-style humor revolving around self-absorbed high school girls with slasher film tropes, Tragedy Girls proves neither funny nor scary enough to be distinctive.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
53% Killing Gunther (2017) More than anything, Killing Gunther demonstrates that Christopher Guest has a lot to atone for with his pioneering of the mockumentary, which has become the lazy, go-to style for low-budget comedies.‐ Hollywood Reporter
