Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Fire Music (2018) Featuring past and recent interviews with many of the key figures and generous doses of archival photographs and vintage performance footage, the film should be on any serious music lover's must-see list.‐ Hollywood Reporter

14% I Still See You (2018) I Still See You is painful to watch, and having to learn all the new jargon only makes it feel like an academic chore.‐ Hollywood Reporter

64% Stella's Last Weekend (2018) Stella's Last Weekend seems like it was more fun to make than watch.‐ Hollywood Reporter

38% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) It should please younger fans of the books who will have no problem with its rudimentary storyline all too repetitive of the original. But it does feel like a missed opportunity to elevate the valuable franchise to bigger and more imaginative heights.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Cold Blue (2018) An important companion piece to Wyler's classic and a powerful stand-alone film.‐ Hollywood Reporter

93% After Everything (Shotgun) (2018) Featuring terrific performances by its young leads, the film marks an auspicious feature debut for its writers/directors.‐ Hollywood Reporter

78% Sadie (2018) Excellent performances and vivid atmosphere compensate for the plot contrivances.‐ Hollywood Reporter

50% Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It (2014) Anyone not already initiated into the Trailer Park Boys cult will find themselves at a loss, both amusement and information-wise, since familiarity with their antics is assumed. Suffice it to say that few newcomers will be converted by this latest outing.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Family Business: Trump and Taxes (2018) As with The Fourth Estate, the short documentary illustrates how the journalistic sausage is made, which in this case was through an awful lot of hard work. ‐ Hollywood Reporter

89% A Crooked Somebody (2018) A Crooked Somebody is smarter than the usual thriller.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
100% Moynihan (2018) A vivid portrait of the sort of politician we desperately need today.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2018
30% Little Women (2018) This cinematic update ultimately not so much honors its source material but exploits it. Not in a bad way, mind you, merely an unnecessary one.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2018
0% Maximum Impact (2018) Wears out its welcome within minutes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
58% Summer '03 (2018) There's nothing terribly new under the sun about any of what transpires. But writer/director Gleason has crafted a film that manages to be simultaneously funny, touching and sensitive.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2018
No Score Yet The Storyteller (2018) While The Storyteller hardly breaks any new ground in its Peter Pan-inspired tale, it boasts an undeniable sweetness that proves appealing amidst so many frenetic kids movies.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
0% American Dresser (2018) Despite a fine cast featuring numerous screen veterans, this is a cliché-ridden effort that quickly runs out of gas.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2018
19% A Happening of Monumental Proportions (2018) A Happening of Monumental Proportions is a perfect example of a bad movie happening to good actors.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2018
86% Intelligent Lives (2018) Important and inspiring.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2018
44% Lost Child (2018) Lost Child never becomes as affecting or suspenseful as it should be.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
88% The Angel (2018) A fascinating tale, delivered with just enough suspense to make it engrossing without feeling over the top.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
71% Final Score (2018) Bautista has the low-key charisma, natural appeal and formidable physicality necessary for an action star, and he makes Final Score worth watching (at home while eating pizza and drinking beer, preferably) despite its endlessly derivative elements.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
39% Unbroken: Path to Redemption (2018) There's a reason that Angelina Jolie's screen adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling Unbroken left out most of the material covered in the book's second half. It just isn't very interesting.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
13% The Basement (2018) The Basement has the feel of a stilted Off-Off-Broadway audition piece.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
86% Nelly (2018) What anchors the proceedings is the lead performance of Mylene Mackay, whose star will definitely be on the rise after this sexy, galvanizing turn.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
10% God Bless the Broken Road (2018) Reverence for God and the church: Check. Patriotism and the highest regard for military service: Check. Country music: Check. NASCAR racing: Check... The only thing missing from God Bless the Broken Road is compelling or believable drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
10% Peppermint (2018) Peppermint lacks subtlety and anything even remotely resembling credibility, but like its heroine, it certainly gets the job done.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
86% Diane (2018) Diane falters toward the end, with the story's denouement not quite living up to the provocative set-up. But it nonetheless exerts a fascinating pull...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
20% Mara (2018) It's a reasonable premise for a horror film, but the execution is remarkably lackluster.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
0% Ya Veremos (2018) Manages to be worse than its inane premise, with barely a single moment ringing true.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2018
33% An Actor Prepares (2018) Are all fathers and their grown sons estranged? Does every road trip movie have to be filled with quirky characters and colorful detours? Judging by An Actor Prepares and so many other movies of its ilk, the answer to all of these is yes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
No Score Yet The Landing (2018) It essentially feels like a very clever but ultimately meaningless stunt.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
0% Reprisal (2018) If Bruce Willis isn't careful, he may soon be hit by a class-action lawsuit.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
62% Blood Fest (2018) Attempts scares and yucks in equal measure and fails to deliver either.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
26% A.X.L. (2018) A.X.L. feels in desperate need of repairs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
41% Arizona (2018) Severely wasting the talents of Rosemary DeWitt, who really, really deserves better material, Arizona is as arid and barren as the state that provides its title.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
33% Blue Iguana (2018) A tedious mess.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
14% An L.A. Minute (2018) Feels more like a week.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
22% The Happytime Murders (2018) It's more than funny enough, packing lots of genuine, if frequently tasteless, laughs into its relatively brief running time.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
No Score Yet Dr. Brinks & Dr. Brinks (2018) So understated in both its dramatic and comedic aspects that it fails to make any real impression whatsoever, Dr. Brinks & Dr. Brinks demonstrates little reason for being.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
50% Down a Dark Hall (2018) Its elegant subtlety feels refreshing in this era of over-the-top horror films.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
80% A Whale of a Tale (2018) A Whale of a Tale delivers a thoughtful riposte to The Cove even while providing plenty of opportunity for those opposed to the practice of killing or capturing whales and dolphins to make their case.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
88% Hope Springs Eternal (2018) The appealing Mia Rose Frampton makes it work.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2018
50% Elizabeth Harvest (2018) The main problem is that the storyline becomes so convoluted that it doesn't live up to the intriguing setup.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
60% Dog Days (2018) There's nothing remotely unpredictable about anything that occurs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2018
49% Like Father (2018) By the time the main characters deliver an exuberant full-length karaoke rendition of Styx's "Come Sail Away," a norovirus seems a desirable alternative.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
77% Cocote (2018) Cocote tells a relatively simple story in willfully obscure, opaque fashion. While the pic features many intriguing elements and often proves visually stunning, it ultimately feels a trial to endure.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
No Score Yet Devil's Cove (2018) This sleazy, inept rip-off of Thelma and Louise is so technically amateurish that Ed Wood, Jr. would probably be its biggest fan were he still alive.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
0% Death of a Nation (2018) No one expects, of course, that D'Souza would make a thoughtful, balanced or historically accurate documentary. But is it unreasonable to hope that he make one that doesn't bore the pants off us?‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
No Score Yet American Tap (2018) Invaluable for providing a comprehensive history of tap complete with wonderfully entertaining clips of many of its foremost practitioners past and present.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
13% 14 Cameras (2018) Voyeurism has never been so boring.‐ Hollywood Reporter
