T-Meter Title | Year
81% Black Widow (2021) Natasha remains the paper-thin sketch of character she always was, relegated to a posthumous backdoor pilot of a sendoff, leaving us hoping they can get it right the next time. - Screen Rex EDIT

90% Promising Young Woman (2020) While Promising Young Woman shocked me at almost every turn, it did so without ever once asking me to suspend my disbelief. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2020
59% Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Wonder Woman 1984 is a bright and messy film, full of optimism and confidence, but so sure of itself it doesn't know when it's gone too far. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2020
95% Soul (2020) Some of us grow up believing we could succeed in anything, which might be one of childhood's most well-intentioned and harmful lies. Soul might be one of the first children's films that rejects that well-intentioned lie instead of perpetuating it. - Screen Rex EDIT

48% The Witches (2020) Outside of curiosity for a few choice performances, there's little to recommend here that you can't find done better in the original. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2020
62% Nocturne (2020) Sometimes it feels like a lesser version of films that came before it, like Suspiria. But Nocturne has a lot going for it. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2020
45% Evil Eye (2020) Based on the way horror films tend to center on the young, I wasn't expecting Choudhury's part to be so substantial. But Evil Eye has a specific mix of focus, and as a result the final product is a tale told from a unique point of view. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2020
98% The Swerve (2020) The Swerve focuses on the terror of finding yourself living a life you don't really like. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2020
92% The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020) The Personal History of David Copperfield delivers, though perhaps not up to my great expectations. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2020
70% Tenet (2020) Tenet is the most ambitious and alienating film Nolan's ever made. - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2020
92% Relic (2020) Relic effectively combines horror with heartache - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2020
80% The Old Guard (2020) The Old Guard had a lot of potential to be something special as a long-form, character-based form of storytelling, with an intriguing core concept and stellar cast. But as a standalone action flick, it's pace and story is less than satisfying. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2020
41% You Should Have Left (2020) You Should Have Left has brief flashes of cleverness or self-awareness that give you hope throughout, but these moments aren't tangible enough to stop you from wondering if you were giving it too much credit in the first place. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2020
75% The King of Staten Island (2020) You never really escape the feeling that Davidson's playing himself in The King of Staten Island, but that's what makes his performance work so well. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2020
87% Shirley (2020) Shirley transcends the generic biopic, instead functioning as a moody piece of fictional character work concerned more with themes than with historical fact. - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2020
92% The Vast of Night (2020) Don't let the nostalgic trappings of 1950s America fool you: The Vast of Night is a sci-fi story with a new point of view - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted May 28, 2020
57% The Hunt (2020) A so-so film caught up in political circumstances far beyond its reach. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2020
91% The Invisible Man (2020) The Invisible Man gives terrifying shape to an all-too-real villain. It proves that a smart script, committed director, and talented actors can be a far more powerful vehicle for classic horror than a paint-by-numbers franchise reboot. - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2020
49% Greed (2020) Greed tries to do a lot and fails to succeed because of that broadness. That's not to say the film is an outright miss: there's probably more than one excellent film lurking in the depths. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2020
79% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Birds of Prey manages to salvage Harley from the wreckage of its predecessor and gives us enough to want a whole lot more from these characters. - The Beat EDIT

14% Dolittle (2020) Maybe the animals could understand what Dolittle was saying, but I couldn't. - The Beat EDIT

95% Little Women (2019) Gerwig succeeds in giving another generation their own, modernized version of this tale. As a fitting result, Little Women is the final must-see film of a decade that's seen a huge amount of changes for women. - The Beat EDIT

51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) The Rise of Skywalker wasn't a total bust. If you hated The Last Jedi, you might even love it. But it's hard for me to see it as a successful third installment in this trilogy. - The Beat EDIT

84% Waves (2019) Anchored by two parallel and incredible performances, Waves offers an all-around impressive ensemble. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
89% 1917 (2020) 1917 is an intense, immersive experience told from the eyes of these two men. You'll hold your breath when they do, gasp when they do, and jump when they do. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
91% Uncut Gems (2019) Uncut Gems was my most stressful cinematic experience of 2019. It was also one of the best. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
78% Frozen II (2019) Frozen II is a deeply weird movie. And I mean that as a compliment. - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2019
26% Gemini Man (2019) Gemini Man is a story that's too old paired with technology that's still too young - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
68% Joker (2019) Joker's intellectual commentary is just a cheap costume. - The Beat EDIT

Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
97% Love, Antosha (2019) Love, Antosha does a lot with very little time, which is nothing if not fitting. - Screen Rex EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
65% Suspiria (2018) Suspiria is equal parts alienating and hypnotic - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Spider-Verse looks more like a gorgeous comic than a reproduction of a live action film. - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
79% Captain Marvel (2019) The movie's central premise asks: Who is this person? I'm not sure we get more than a superficial answer. - The Beat EDIT

42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Godzilla: King of the Monsters delivers killer kaiju - but at a cost - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
83% Ad Astra (2019) The movie's tone manages to hit on all of the best kind of notes we expect from science fiction, easily embracing the dystopian commercialization of the stars while simultaneously allowing us to wonder at them. - The Beat EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
22% Dark Phoenix (2019) Dark Phoenix is as sloppy as Mystique's makeup - The Beat EDIT

23% Men in Black International (2019) A charismatic cast can't save Men in Black: International from feeling like a thoughtless cash grab. - The Beat EDIT

83% Midsommar (2019) The culture surrounding festivals is an area ripe for horror - and MIDSOMMAR makes Fyre Festival look like a picnic. - The Beat EDIT
