Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 100% Lady Bird (2017) Christine/Lady Bird is easy enough to root for, even when missteps are made. ‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2/4 72% Wonderstruck (2017) The result - other than the sights and sounds, or lack thereof - is rather ordinary, leaving us feeling a few explosions and superheroes might actually have been welcome. ‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) The reward for an audience willing to spend 108 minutes on an honest testament to that reality is a mournful Bruce Springsteen ballad ("Freedom Cadence") over the closing credits. ‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Despite any faults, or double faults - which also includes some dialogue that sounds suspiciously like too-meaningful speeches - Battle of the Sexes is an entertaining, well-performed history lesson in the sociology of the early 1970s.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3.5/4 92% Dunkirk (2017) Mr. Nolan can be forgiven, or even praised, for refusing to pander to sentiment. He's given filmgoers far more to see and hear -- and Dunkirk will be heard from at Oscar time.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

1/4 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) There's no good horror to be had from it. Instead, it's just horrible.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3/4 83% The Founder (2017) Mr. Keaton is as glibly captivating as ever as the hard-drinking Midwesterner with shrewd instincts for where American consumerism was headed in the mid-20th century.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

1.5/4 14% Collateral Beauty (2016) [Some may be] willing to overlook a hackneyed script and unbelievable characters, so long as it's all wrapped with a pretty bow in the end. Anyone with the slightest scintilla of Scrooge or rationality in them, however, might balk.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

1.5/4 60% Allied (2016) That the two stars dress and look so good in Allied is fitting in a film that feels only skin deep.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3.5/4 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) The Edge of Seventeen immediately makes the high honor roll of high school comedy-drama.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3/4 94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is not out primarily to thrill or frighten. It asks viewers instead to watch, think and reflect. It should be worth it -- if you give it time.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3/4 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) It's an amazing story well worth telling, and it's surprising it took 71 years for someone to tell it. And if this is what it took to get Mel Gibson in moviegoers' good graces again, so be it.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2/4 38% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) This sign of a heart may serve as a distraction more than benefit for action fans looking to focus on Reacher's more remarkable abilities.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 44% The Girl on the Train (2016) To its credit... The Girl on the Train features an unusual number of strong female roles, but neither they nor their men are people we'd want to spend more than the film's 112 minutes with, if that.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 70% Café Society (2016) It adds up to another middling Allen film typical of the 21st century, which is enough to satisfy many fans.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 76% Lights Out (2016) It's no classic at its longer length, but for fans of the genre, Lights Out has its moments as a cling-to-your-date alternative to seeing yet another big budget, comic book-derived summer blockbuster.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3.5/4 92% The Nice Guys (2016) A heckuva entertaining film.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) Many of Mr. Linklater's fans or other moviegoers nostalgic for an Animal House-style homage to college testosterone may find plenty of appeal in all that.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
