T-Meter Title | Year
7/10 65% Silo (2021) Thankfully, even with its faults, Burnette succeeds in delivering a film that makes us think about the perils farmers endure every day so that we may eat. A lot of thought went into it, and it deserves credit for this, despite its shortcomings. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

9/10 97% Paper Spiders (2021) Some will find Paper Spiders too much to handle, but others might find the hope they need in overcoming obstacles in their own lives - and that gives this film the most crucial ingredient in being truly great: purpose. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6/10 90% The Stylist (2020) The Stylist had potential and doesn't meet expectations, but Townsend does not disappoint at all. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6.5/10 57% Knuckledust (2020) Knuckledust is nothing original, but the creators try to serve up a fun watch. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

3/10 64% Cup of Cheer (2020) Not a holiday movie for kids, but not really for adults either. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7/10 45% Evil Eye (2020) Evil Eye presents a well-told story with a good cast to carry audiences through. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6.5/10 85% Detention (2019) Detention comes with good characters and a decent story about an overlooked period in history, but it might fall flat to viewers with no knowledge of the setting or the video game. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

5/10 57% Ms. White Light (2019) Ms. White Light seems like it has potential, but it's all wasted on incoherent dialogue and an unclear vision. It's not a horrid watch, but it's not impressive either - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6/10 71% Once Upon a River (2020) For its faults, the film makes up for it through the performances, which keeps the film afloat from beginning to end. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7/10 92% Alone (2020) It won't go down as a classic, but it won't be a waste of a view either, especially a month before Halloween. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

8.5/10 88% Summerland (2020) 2020 has been a trying year, but Summerland offers a wonderful escape for anyone wanting an adventure that's full of laughter. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6.5/10 99% The Fight (2020) The Fight is a competent documentary that allows audiences to bond with those presented in the film. Although the stories are compelling, it will not appeal to everyone based on its obvious political leanings. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7/10 62% The Call of the Wild (2020) While the use of CGI sometimes creates distracting moments, the overall story is well-told enough to keep audiences hooked. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6/10 64% Gretel & Hansel (2020) Gretel & Hansel has a decent story with a good cast, but an incessantly dark atmosphere makes it a tough film to watch. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

4/10 21% Like a Boss (2020) The cast will have another credit to their resumes, but audiences will have another dry comedy to forget. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

5/10 41% Midway (2019) I'm not entirely sure what Emmerich was trying to accomplish with Midway. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

4/10 18% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) The Possession of Hannah Grace is not the most detestable exorcism-related film out there. It's not even the worst, but more work was needed to make this film "good." What's done is done, and we're stuck with what we got. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

3/10 26% Countdown (2019) A poor concept and equally poor script hinders any and all redemption for Countdown. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

3/10 8% Slender Man (2018) Screen Gems Slender Man takes the creepypasta and flushes it down the toilet. While the acting is okay, the weak story kills it. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) It could have been chopped down by 20-minutes, but even then, it never loses its audience - and that's what you must shoot for when telling a story. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

4/10 38% Life of the Party (2018) Life of the Party comes with a good concept, but a weak script and cheap gags drag it down. Might have been better after a few more drafts. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

53% Bad Samaritan (2018) No one gives a dull performance and the story is compelling enough to keep you hooked from beginning to end. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6/10 87% First They Killed My Father (2017) An important topic at play here, but slow pacing holds it back in places. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

6.5/10 45% The Addams Family (2019) The Addams Family makes a decent return and occasionally elicits laughter. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

1.5/10 No Score Yet Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (2017) Should appeal to children who are either stupid, held hostage, or from sheltered households. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7/10 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Can't say that I hate this movie as much as some do. It has its flaws, but its strengths carry it through. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

3/10 47% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) DeHaan and Delevingne tried their best in their performances. That paid off in places, but the rest of the film just did not hold water. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7.5/10 19% Wish Upon (2017) Wish Upon is not a bad attempt a horror-thriller, though it gets rushed in places. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

5/10 20% The House (2017) Unless you're new to the Will Ferrell or Amy Poehler school of humor, this is as generic a "comedy" as you might expect. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

8/10 92% Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling (2019) Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling is long overdue breath of fresh air with its crude, yet fair, commentary of an out-of-control world. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

8.5/10 100% Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus (2019) Enter the Florpus is a perfect continuation of a beloved series. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

8/10 70% The Mule (2018) Despite a few hiccups in the pacing, The Mule gallops quite gracefully. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

3/10 11% Replicas (2019) An incoherent script, scientific babble, and Keanu Reeves make the perfect recipe for a cinematic fecal burger. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7/10 33% Shaft (2019) Although a bit out of place for its time, the fifth Shaft film packs enough gunfights, wisecracks, and thrills to make it a decent entry in the series. Samuel L. Jackson fans will not be disappointed, and neither will fans of Richard Roundtree. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

5/10 84% Crawl (2019) It's not remarkable by any means, but it isn't the worst alligator film out there. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
