Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
45% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) It knows its mission parameters, and it ticks them off with alacrity.‐ NPR

91% Love, Simon (2018) While the romance elements of Love, Simon will earn it headlines and, perhaps more importantly, butts-in-seats, it's the film's quieter, deeper coming-out storyline that forms its true emotional center.‐ NPR

18% Death Wish (2018) It asks nothing, and offers only the blanket assertion that feelings of masculine inadequacy - "The most important thing a man can do is protect his family, and I failed," Willis declaims - can be obviated ballistically.‐ NPR

82% Game Night (2018) Screenwriter Mark Perez knows the difference between simply making a reference and actually writing a joke - and while the jokes come ceaselessly, they are knowingly and (this turns out to be key) lightly offered.‐ NPR

97% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther is a story we haven't seen told before in popular cinema - a story about black people completely untouched by colonialism, who exist entirely outside the global systems of institutionalized racism.‐ NPR

91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) It supplies us with all the things we expect - nay, demand - in a Star Wars movie, and manages to surprise us by revealing that this fictional universe, in which we've already clocked so many hours, can still surprise us.‐ NPR

95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) Raw, and real, and profoundly, indelibly moving.‐ NPR

81% Tom of Finland (2017) A decorous restraint pervades Tom of Finland - which, given its subject matter, can't help but seem puzzling; Karukoski never manages to capture the hedonistic excess of Laaksonen's art.‐ NPR

54% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) Just three movies in, the Lord/Miller LEGO genre is showing signs of exhaustion.‐ NPR

55% Man of Steel (2013) Man of Steel's violence doesn't escalate; it simply, tediously, iterates. We keep waiting to thrill, to exult, to cheer our hero on. When the lights come up, we're still waiting.‐ NPR

80% Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) By finding an ingenious way to streamline a now-familiar genre, Captain America: The First Avenger does his country proud. ‐ NPR

26% Green Lantern (2011) Gleefully pulpy dialogue that evaporates on the comics page -- lines like, "You can't give in to fear! I know what it's like to be afraid to be afraid!" -- land with a series of heavy wet thuds on the cement floor of the cineplex.‐ NPR
