Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
73% The Devil's Doorway (2018) All the well-crafted effort has unfortunately been expended on a tired and overly familiar story that never registers as anything more than a compendium of horror film clichés.‐ Hollywood Reporter

83% The Citizen (Az Allampolgar) (2018) It's a deeply moving examination of the current white-hot social issue of immigration, depicting the travails of an African refugee desperately trying to attain Hungarian citizenship.‐ Hollywood Reporter

67% Ideal Home (2018) Both actors are at peak form here, with Coogan clearly having a blast as the flamboyant Erasmus and Rudd employing his expert deadpan delivery and gift for comic timing as the slow-burning Paul.‐ Hollywood Reporter

6% 211 (2018) It's probably foolish to wish that Nicolas Cage would once again make movies as good as Adaptation and Leaving Las Vegas. But is it too much to ask that he go back to the comparative glory days of Con Air and The Rock?‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted May 30, 2018
0% Future World (2018) A low-rent, post-apocalyptic sci-fi tale that doesn't succeed as either homage or parody of such obvious inspirations as the Mad Max series, Future World proves as original as its title.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 27, 2018
70% Ibiza (2018) Even by the lax standards of raunchy sex comedies, the Netflix original movie Ibiza proves distinctly underwhelming.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
