Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 79% Patriots Day (2017) Wahlberg is the perfect actor for the role, but it's the role that feels artificially grafted on to nearly every scene. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 13, 2017
3/5 92% Hidden Figures (2017) Brings to light a little-known facet of the American space program that simultaneously represents the best and the worst of what America had to offer at the time. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 6, 2017
5/5 92% 20th Century Women (2017) Feels amazingly larger and grander than it actually is. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Dec 30, 2016
4/5 95% Fences (2016) With rhythmic threads of poetry in its DNA, and a soul forged of the blues, Fences is a sad portrait of an oversized man with even bigger emotions. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Dec 23, 2016
5/5 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) It's an extremely human story of how grief and depression can eat away at the soul and leave its victims a hollowed-out shell. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Dec 16, 2016
4/5 89% Jackie (2016) It's as beautiful as it is sorrowful, and as reassuring as it is disheartening. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Dec 2, 2016
5/5 94% Arrival (2016) Takes its focus away from the invaders - for the most part - and shines it directly on human character and the questions of what might happen if we actually tried to communicate and solve the puzzle of our differences with brains, rather than brawn. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Nov 11, 2016
4/5 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Makes us realize that if only each of us respected the unwavering principles and convictions of others as stubbornly as we hold onto our own, perhaps we wouldn't have to dig back through some 70 years of history to find our real heroes. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Oct 28, 2016
1/5 37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) Gone are most of the things that made Reacher such an enigmatic and fun character to watch in the original. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Oct 21, 2016
4/5 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) If Parker can keep the dialogue flowing and make us all recognize and understand the precarious bindings of the present to our past, then The Birth of a Nation just might be as important as it thinks it is. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Oct 7, 2016
4/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) The film's resounding theme about self sacrifice is sure to put a bit more jangle in your spurs. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Sep 23, 2016
2/5 61% Snowden (2016) As abrasive, polarizing, and frankly, annoying as he used to be, at least Oliver Stone's films were once fearless and stood for something. Now they're just dull. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Sep 16, 2016
4/5 85% Sully (2016) Hanks' measured performance of an honest, humble everyman who was simply doing the best he could under extreme circumstances, elevates the entire experience ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Sep 11, 2016
4/5 87% Don't Breathe (2016) If Fede Alvarez's revisit of Sam Raimi's spooky old cabin in the deep, dark, twisted woods of rural America did something for you in 2013's Evil Dead, then you need to know that Alvarez is back ... this is one sick puppy. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Aug 26, 2016
4/5 60% War Dogs (2016) We laugh as if it is another Jonah Hill goofball comedy, while simultaneously cringing at the morally questionable - yet totally legal - playground created by the U.S. government. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Aug 19, 2016
5/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) Is always better when Bridges is on the screen... but Foster and Pine certainly hold up their end of the bargain with performances to be considered among their very best. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Aug 12, 2016
5/5 96% Gleason (2016) You'll leave the theater a better person. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Aug 5, 2016
4/5 77% Into The Forest (2016) If character-driven drama pieces aren't your thing, then this one might not be for you. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jul 29, 2016
3/5 76% Lights Out (2016) So simple, yet so effective. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jul 22, 2016
3/5 69% The Infiltrator (2016) Within the sprawling pantheon of undercover cop films, The Infiltrator will never be recognized as one of the genre greats. Within actor Bryan Cranston's body of work however, it will be remembered as the one he saved. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jul 15, 2016
1/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) When it comes to dialogue, Skarsgård is better suited for unbuttoning his shirt. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jul 1, 2016
2/5 47% Free State of Jones (2016) A glossy picturebook recollection of an important man who did something really important - we kind of know who and sort of know what. But forget about understanding why. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jun 24, 2016
4/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) Though it lacks the same emotional heft of the original, it's darned near good enough to change one's unfavorable opinion of sequels ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jun 17, 2016
2/5 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) You can pull the rug out from under us only so many times before the gag gets really old. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jun 10, 2016
2/5 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Even an auto-tune wouldn't help this one ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jun 3, 2016
2/5 29% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) No amount of computer graphics can replace the touchy-feely tactile world of actors acting on a set with other real-life actors and costumed characters - something Alice so sorely misses. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted May 27, 2016
4/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) In the era of comic book superhero over-saturation, Hollywood can certainly stand the originality ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted May 20, 2016
3/5 57% Money Monster (2016) A better than average film that's a "buy" in any market ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted May 13, 2016
3/5 76% Keanu (2016) Is always a better film when the titular tabby is on the screen. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Apr 29, 2016
4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Simply put, The Jungle Book 2016 is a real swinging time in the jungle. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Apr 15, 2016
2/5 30% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) Had Vardalos explored some new themes and a fresh new angle, she might have found something. But as it is, let's just call this wedding off. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Mar 25, 2016
2/5 43% Miracles from Heaven (2016) There's a snake lurking in the garden of compassion. And he bears the face of overt proselytization. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Mar 18, 2016
2/5 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) If elephant semen sight gags do it for you, then you are well on your way to loads of enjoyment. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Mar 11, 2016
3/5 68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) We now know the size of the bite Tina Fey can take out of a meaty role. Feed her. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Mar 4, 2016
3/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) Brings a big goopy sports lump to the throats of even the most hardened movie goers ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 61% Race (2016) Is always more interesting when it's less about sport and more about Hitler's humiliation on the world stage ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Feb 19, 2016
1/5 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) The warmed over humor is a tired one-trick pony that spit the bit barely 15 minutes into the original. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) Finds a challenging and stimulating way to poke a bit of harmless fun at the brutal hypocrisy of Hollywood's system, while at the same time making it feel like a loving pat on the back. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Feb 5, 2016
2/5 62% The Intern (2015) Hathaway plays much better against DeNiro's pin-striped persona when she's biting into her role with a Miranda Priestly boorishness. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 30, 2016
2/5 84% The Walk (2015) The real star of the show is the World Trade Center, with its ghostly appearance that still evokes heavy emotions to this day. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 30, 2016
5/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) The strength of the film lies in the bond developed between two men. A bond built on mutual respect and common understanding in a time when trusting the enemy could get you killed. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 30, 2016
5/5 86% Steve Jobs (2015) You don't have to use Apple products or even like Steve Jobs the person to appreciate Steve Jobs the movie. It's a brilliant masterpiece and intimate, warts-and-all portrait of a broken person who literally changed the world ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 30, 2016
2/5 35% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) Chaotic storytelling and uneven tone get in the way of an outcome that should really enrage an audience. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 30, 2016
5/5 73% Suffragette (2015) One of its most appreciated accomplishments is its ability to paint the heroic events of a social movement that happened more than a hundred years ago with a modern-day relevance sure to resonate with audiences of today. Sadly, no one will see it. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 29, 2016
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) Sure, you'll lose count of the "well, that's not very realistic" moments, but that's never mattered in a Mission: Impossible film and it certainly doesn't in this one. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 29, 2016
2/5 33% My All American (2015) We're never invested in the sanitary white-bread story that renounces drama and entertainment for the sake of accuracy and a squeaky-clean PG rating ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 29, 2016
5/5 97% Brooklyn (2015) Not only significant as a smartly written piece of social and historical commentary, but it's also just a great, well-crafted movie that warms the heart and is a lot of fun to watch. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 29, 2016
5/5 96% Son of Saul (2015) It's a simple story, simply told of one man caught in a hopelessly desperate situation. Yet its moral is something worthy of all mankind's attention. ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 29, 2016
5/5 92% The Martian (2015) Will eventually find itself planted amongst the best in Ridley Scott's bulging anthology as it is perfectly paced, visually stunning, and mentally challenging ‐ Reel Reviews
Posted Jan 29, 2016
1/5 10% The Forest (2016) An embarrassingly dreadful mess of a movie that is neither fun nor stirring, and certainly isn't very scary. ‐ Reel Reviews
