Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 85% Little Pink House (2018) The movie often seems to have a hard time making up its mind whether it wants to be The Insider or Mean Girls.‐ RogerEbert.com

35% Super Troopers 2 (2018) This non-indulger will attest that you don't have to be high to find this long-impending sequel to 2002's "Super Troopers" very funny indeed.‐ New York Times

63% Beyond the Clouds (2018) Persistent sentimentality - manifested most in the music score by A.R. Rahman - undercuts "Beyond the Clouds" at almost every turn.‐ New York Times

63% This Is Our Land (Chez nous) (2018) The drama is well-paced, and all of the actors are wonderful.‐ New York Times

1.5/4 60% 10x10 (2018) The opening scenes of this thriller look and feel like something I've seen dozens, maybe hundreds, of times before.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 92% Zama (2018) A mordantly funny and relentlessly modernist critique of colonialism.‐ RogerEbert.com

78% Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc (Jeannette l'enfance de Jeanne d'Arc) (2017) "Jeannette" throws the modern back at the medieval, making no distinction between religious ecstasy and that experienced in certain contemporary contexts of music and ritual.‐ New York Times

19% Submergence (2018) Ms. Dignam's script distills the novel into middlebrow Hollywood treacle.‐ New York Times

50% Rampage (2018) As for Mr. Johnson, one hesitates to level a charge of "phoning it in" against him. He's a generally reliable performer, but I have to say it seems he had less fun here than he did in the recent Jumanji.‐ New York Times

3/4 94% Sweet Country (2018) A movie of visuals first and foremost.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
2.5/4 44% The Miracle Season (2018) This movie goes for the heartstrings and tear ducts more than the sports-conscious. The results are pretty mixed.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% The Heart of Nuba (2018) The film is worth seeing because it's a moving and remarkable story and it represents a great cause.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
96% The Endless (2018) This idea may at first seem both dumb and highly implausible, but viewers eager to poke holes in the scenario should give it time. "The Endless" rewards patience with mind-bending twists and turns.‐ New York Times

78% Where Is Kyra? (2018) As a statement about the economic insecurity inherent in American capitalism, "Where Is Kyra?" has grim power.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
86% Wilde Salomé (2013) "Wilde Salomé" is most fascinating as a portrait of a superstar actor who, for all his wealth and privilege, encounters unusual frustrations as he pursues genuine artistic ambitions.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
100% Personal Problems (2018) For all its rough edges, "Personal Problems" retains a vitality and an integrity that practically bounds off the screen.‐ New York Times

1.5/4 79% Dave Made a Maze (2017) I had never felt happier to be approaching senior citizenship.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2018
9% Game Over, Man! (2018) This almost laugh-free comedy ... is distinguished by a relentless level of outrageous yet strangely listless vulgarity.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
2.5/4 79% I Kill Giants (2018) There's still something about I Kill Giants that feels projected, a work more informed by empathy than experience.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 72% Final Portrait (2018) An apt tribute to both the artist and art itself.‐ RogerEbert.com

60% Ismael's Ghosts (Les fantômes d'Ismaël) (2018) An unforgettable experience.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
90% A Bag of Marbles (Un sac de billes) (2018) The writing and its attendant characterizations have an undeniable integrity, the particular historical detail offered by the story is not common in films about this era, and the lead performers are moving.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) As sequels to sci-fi action thrillers showcasing giant metallic fighters go, "Pacific Rim Uprising" is adroit and enjoyable.‐ New York Times

92% Love, Simon (2018) The emotional resonance may be surprising given the movie's relentless gloss, but it's real.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
100% Keep the Change (2018) "Keep the Change" is not a seamlessly crafted movie, but it's awfully tenderhearted and thoroughly disarming. It deserves to be widely seen.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
47% Allure (2018) The filmmakers seem less concerned with telling a story than in convincing the audience (and maybe themselves) that they can handle this provocative and potentially exploitive material ... with what's conventionally considered "appropriate" sensitivity.‐ New York Times

3/4 41% Gringo (2018) 'Pleasant surprise' might be a misnomer for Gringo.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
3.5/4 96% The Death of Stalin (2018) It never asks us to laugh at cruelty; it does make us laugh at the absurd pettiness and ultimate small-mindedness of the men perpetrating that cruelty. And Iannucci is a superb ringmaster.‐ RogerEbert.com

37% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) It's never a good sign when a movie racks up its first ironic music cue before there is anything to be ironic about.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
52% The Forgiven (2018) "The Forgiven" is heavy-handed from its early texts explaining apartheid through its end credits.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
88% Claire's Camera (La caméra de Claire) (2018) Ms. Huppert's presence - steady, warm, thoughtful but with a casual air - keeps the entire enterprise classically comedic.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
2.5/4 100% Oh Lucy! (2018) The treatment of its central character veers so wildly between the sympathetic and just plain pathetic that there's a blur where the movie's heart ought to be.‐ RogerEbert.com

0/4 9% The Vanishing of Sidney Hall (2018) In the unlikely event that you've ever been truly curious as to how much M.F.A.-style toxic masculinity can be packed into one motion picture, you ought to check out The Vanishing of Sidney Hall.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 51% Submission (2018) It's lit-dude catnip.‐ RogerEbert.com

46% Souvenir (2018) The story is as predictable as they come, played out at such a low emotional temperature as to be practically ignorable.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
100% Hondros (2018) If the movie doesn't go more than skin deep in interrogating questions about interventions both military and journalistic into the Middle East, it does succeed in opening up Mr. Hondros's contradiction-filled world.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
89% Werewolf (2018) The performers don't seem like they're acting at all, which contributes to the film's unsettling power.‐ New York Times

3/4 62% The Cured (2018) The Cured is going to be a genre film to beat in 2018.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
61% Every Day (2018) The cast does excellent work, particularly Justice Smith, who as Justin gets to play World's Worst and Best boyfriend and nails both. And as Rhiannon, the appealing Angourie Rice is just the kind of teenager you root for ...‐ New York Times

91% Are We Not Cats (2018) "Are We Not Cats" is a well-put-together film with a lot of striking imagery, but, as you may have already inferred, something of a specialty item.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
82% Game Night (2018) Ms. McAdams is one of cinema's most accomplished and appealing comic actresses. It's almost heartbreaking to contemplate how amazing she would be in a new comedy that was more than intermittently O.K.‐ New York Times

1.5/4 17% Looking Glass (2018) One can't be blamed for hoping that this combination of talents at this time might combust into something interesting.‐ RogerEbert.com

No Score Yet Honor Up (2018) For all of its failings, the movie sometimes manages to bring a scary whiff of the street into its sounds and images.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2018
71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) "Double Lover" ... spins its influences into a frenzy that ultimately reveals the story to be very much its own thing. And a crazy, and eventually strangely moving, thing it is.‐ New York Times

2/4 8% Basmati Blues (2018) An amiable misfire.‐ RogerEbert.com
