Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
45% Close (2019) Rapace gives the film her all, delivering an intense, physically demanding performance, but Close doesn't get close enough to transcending its action-movie clichés.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Brawler (2019) A thoroughly mediocre retelling that feels like an unnecessary footnote.‐ Hollywood Reporter

11% An Acceptable Loss (2019) This talky, ham-fisted effort proves particularly disappointing because it should have been much better than it is.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Alone in the Dead of Night (2019) Inventively creepy.‐ Hollywood Reporter

10% Replicas (2019) Replicas manages to be perversely entertaining for its fast-paced first half, if only because of the sheer absurdity of its storyline. But it eventually devolves into tedious thriller tropes...‐ Hollywood Reporter

25% Sgt. Will Gardner (2019) The film endlessly traffics in the sort of clichés endemic to the genre, from its gung-ho country music soundtrack to its frequent combat flashbacks illustrating the horrors of war.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Anthem of a Teenage Prophet (2019) Such restraint is admirable in a genre not known for it, but it results in the film feeling more tepid than it should have been.‐ Hollywood Reporter

57% A Dog's Way Home (2019) Dog lovers of all ages will warm up to its adventure tale about a plucky pooch who embarks on a 400-mile journey to get back home to his beloved owner.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Jobe'z World (2019) Strains mightily for a cult status it's highly unlikely to achieve.‐ Hollywood Reporter

83% Beyond the Night (2018) Beyond the Night boasts tense atmosphere to spare... an auspicious debut for its writer/director.‐ Hollywood Reporter

1/4 34% Gummo (1997) A close-up portrait of disaffected youth in Middle America, "Gummo" is one of the most repellent cinematic efforts in recent memory.‐ Baltimore Sun
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2019
No Score Yet Mojin: The Worm Valley (2019) It all goes down fairly easily, although the film will necessarily be more appealing to fans of the books than neophytes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2019
No Score Yet Being Rose (2019) It's hard not to get caught up in Rose's fate, especially with Shepherd infusing her portrayal of the spunky character with subtle grace notes. Brolin is equally good, movingly conveying the loneliness and pathos underlying Max's good humor.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2019
85% The Vanishing (2019) Fine performances and eerie atmospherics enhance this slow burner.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2019
10% Holmes and Watson (2018) You can feel the flop sweat emanating from the third onscreen pairing of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Last Resort (2018) Poignantly nostalgic.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
33% Between Worlds (2018) While not quite up to the outrageousness level of so many Cage vehicles in recent years, Between Worlds features enough WTF moments to satisfy the prolific actor's many fans who can't wait to see what he's up to next.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2018
No Score Yet That Way Madness Lies... (2018) That Way Madness Lies delivers an unblinking assessment of the failures of the health, judicial and penal systems to effectively address what is a growing national problem.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2018
No Score Yet Avicii: True Stories (2017) Avicii: True Stories delivers a visceral portrait of the personal cost that can arise from a meteoric rise to fame.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2018
83% The Quake (Skjelvet) (2018) For the more open-minded, The Quake offers visceral thrills.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2018
27% All the Devil's Men (2018) Such an utterly routine, formulaic and forgettable example of its genre that watching it becomes an exercise in endurance.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2018
No Score Yet Hospitality (2018) The derivative screenplay lacking wit and the filmmaking devoid of arresting style, Hospitality never gather narrative momentum despite its frequent plot developments.‐ Hollywood Reporter

55% Asher (2018) Nothing in the proceedings rings remotely true unless you've been weaned on a steady diet of soulful hit men movies.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2018
74% Back Roads (2018) While Back Roads doesn't live up to its considerable dramatic and thematic ambitions, it provides a strong opportunity for its filmmaker/star to stretch his dramatic muscles in the lead role.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2018
46% Swimming with Men (2018) Aiming for charm but instead coming across as hopelessly forced, Swimming with Men barely manages to stay afloat.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2018
No Score Yet My Perfect World (2018) A compelling true crime story.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2018
50% DriverX (2018) Proves unsatisfying both as drama and satire.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2018
No Score Yet Making The Five Heartbeats (2018) It too often comes across as a vanity project, and an overextended one at that.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2018
35% Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back) (2018) It's only Tom Wilkinson's typically expert performance that saves Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back) from having to live up to its subtitled bargain with moviegoers.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2018
17% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Hannah Grace never overcomes the compendium of clichés in Brian Sieve's screenplay, which resembles a greatest hits of demonic possession films.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2018
26% Elliot The Littlest Reindeer (2018) Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer is strictly for the most undiscriminating small fry.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Afterward (2018) Painful but essential.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2018
No Score Yet The Providers (2018) The Providers delivers a deeply moving portrait of selflessness and dedication that feels particularly timely in this era of division between the red and blue states.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2018
20% The Gilligan Manifesto (2018) While its pseudo-academic subject matter might have made for a reasonably amusing short, the documentary wears out its welcome long before reaching its final arguments.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2018
No Score Yet The Show's the Thing (2018) Essential viewing for anyone interested in music industry history.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2018

No Score Yet Inside Lehman (2018) Fascinating accounts from the inside.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2018
100% Family in Transition (2018) While there has been no shortage of theatrical and television documentaries dealing with transgender issues, Family in Transition stands out both for the particularities inherent in its setting and the deeply sympathetic individuals at its center.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
14% Welcome Home (2018) Attempting to be a cautionary tale for the Airbnb era, the pic squanders its potential with ham-fisted execution.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
No Score Yet Olympia (2019) A compelling profile of a woman who's defiantly marched to the beat of her own drum.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
56% Bullitt County (2018) Despite those flaws, it's an impressive low-budget indie effort, boasting a strong sense of atmosphere that marks its writer-director-actor as a talent to watch.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2018
22% River Runs Red (2018) The film's third act, featuring standard-issue gunfights and car chases, is too poorly staged to be remotely exciting.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2018
50% Postcards From London (2018) Although Postcards from London ultimately doesn't quite live up to its considerable ambitions, it offers plenty of arresting moments along the way.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2018
88% Lez Bomb (2018) Lez Bomb may traffic in clichés, but it delivers its messages of love, tolerance and acceptance in such light-hearted, warm fashion that they're easy to overlook.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
50% Pimp (2018) The strongest element of all is Palmer's thoroughly gripping performance. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
0% Marfa Girl 2 (2018) The most unnecessary sequel in film history.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
75% Monster Party (2018) Gleefully gory and darkly funny, Monster Party is the sort of extreme genre exercise that separates real fans from mere dilettantes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
67% Welcome to Mercy (2018) The novelty of exorcisms and creepy nuns has long since expired... and, other than its exotic setting, Welcome to Mercy does precious little to revive it.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Mooch (2018) Aren't his 15 minutes up yet?‐ Hollywood Reporter
