Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) Doesn't necessarily break any new ground, but it does represent a new starting point in the franchise and should stand as a solid base upon which to build and explore new territory.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 67% The Wall (2017) All around good filmmaking about a subject that hasn't yet played itself out.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 51% The Dinner (2017) You may think you know how far you would go to protect your children. But you really have no idea.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 15% The Circle (2017) It is certainly real-world stuff rooted in our desire for a transparent society, but for such eerily relevant subject matter, The Circle sure is dull entertainment.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 66% Tommy's Honour (2017) Never quite manages an excitement level above that of, say, watching fairway grass grow.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 46% Going in Style (2017) ... not a terrible film. It's brief, mostly good natured, and is populated by an entertaining cast that can bring interest to anything. But like a watery bowl of gruel, it's not much fun to choke down, nor is it particularly nourishing once you do.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 68% Life (2017) Beautifully rendered and feels scientifically accurate, but isn't very smart. And without our total buy in, the whole thing feels like a fascinating "what if" premise ruined by "now what" execution.‐ Reel Reviews

1/5 24% Table 19 (2017) Nobody likes weddings and we certainly don't want to see what goes on at table 19.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 99% Get Out (2017) There's either a bit of genius at play or this is one heck of a lucky first strike‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) Yes, Matt Damon stands out like a sore thumb, and no, he doesn't ruin the film.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
1/5 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) S&M with "no rules, no punishments, and no more secrets." Where's the fun in that?‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
5/5 98% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) Purposefully difficult to watch, yet must be seen. ‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 42% Gold (2017) Gold is a better movie when McConaughey is on the screen. And thankfully, he's in nearly every scene ‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 75% Split (2017) Free from the expectations of splendor, spectacle, and huge box office returns, Shyamalan leans on dialogue, characters, atmosphere, and mood to tell his story. And he's a better filmmaker because of it.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 80% 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
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
3/5 93% 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

5/5 88% 20th Century Women (2017) Feels amazingly larger and grander than it actually is.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Dec 30, 2016
4/5 93% 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
5/5 93% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
4/5 87% 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

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

4/5 71% 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2016
4/5 59% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2016
5/5 97% 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

3/5 75% Lights Out (2016) So simple, yet so effective.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | 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

1/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) When it comes to dialogue, Skarsgård is better suited for unbuttoning his shirt.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | 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

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

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

2/5 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Even an auto-tune wouldn't help this one‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 30% 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

4/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) In the era of comic book superhero over-saturation, Hollywood can certainly stand the originality‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
3/5 57% Money Monster (2016) A better than average film that's a "buy" in any market‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Simply put, The Jungle Book 2016 is a real swinging time in the jungle.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 29% 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

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

2/5 36% 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

3/5 67% 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

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
