Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 No Score Yet Great Great Great (2017) The audience is supposed to feel empathy for Lauren's predicament, but we (at least this reviewer) did not.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 No Score Yet White Night (2017) There are hilarious moments ... but the film doesn't quite pull off the challenge of fusing the visions of five filmmakers into one cohesive whole.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 No Score Yet Life & Nothing More (2017) The first half is long, languid takes of their cramped apartment, with minimal dialogue. In the second, things speed up, but the abrupt shift from a snail's pace to a flurry of happenings, is jarring.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 88% Euthanizer (Armomurhaaja) (2017) Euthanizer shocks from the outset, and nauseates by the conclusion.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 100% Waru (2017) Joined together, the shorts are a powerful chorus of female Maori voices united in finding a way to protect all that is vulnerable.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 No Score Yet Black Kite (2017) Weaving live footage and animation into Arian's story, Qayumi's politically charged narrative is almost too stark. But perhaps that is the point.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 No Score Yet The Judge (2017) The documentary is an inspiration to women - not just in the Middle East - who are determined to rise to the top of their professions, despite the odds being stacked against them.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 No Score Yet The Space Between (2017) It's a tender look at human foibles but so tidily contrived that the tension that comes with making tough choices - and having to live with the consequences - is stripped away.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 95% Step (2017) Step is a story about relationships. And how even the most challenging family ties shape us into the people we are destined to become.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 78% Past Life (2017) The drama seems overwrought at times, even cliché ...‐ Globe and Mail

4/4 99% The Invisible War (2012) A must-see exposé of the abuse of power in an institution that is supposed to serve and protect.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 41% Crooked Arrows (2012) An entirely predictable script that chugs along to the foregone loser-beats-odds conclusion.‐ Globe and Mail

4/4 89% The Descendants (2011) Clooney and the elder daughter (Shailene Woodley) give Oscar-worthy performances in this hard-knocks film that will have you laughing one moment and sobbing the next.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 33% The Hangover Part II (2011) The Hangover made the actors A-list Hollywood stars. But despite the indisputable talent of this cast, The Hangover Part II doesn't deliver the same zany punch of its predecessor.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 49% The Bang Bang Club (2011) Ryan Phillippe, Taylor Kitsch and South Africans Neels Van Jaarsveld and Frank Rautenbach play the heroic foursome (two of whom won Pulitzers for their riveting photos) whose images shocked the world awake.‐ Globe and Mail
