T-Meter Title | Year
97% Booksmart (2019) Booksmart is a brilliant teen flick and a savvy female-fronted comedy and an exceptional lesbian film - and it's also just a really smart, really funny movie. It transcends every genre it's a part of. - Autostraddle EDIT

69% Wine Country (2019) Unlike basically every other drunken comedy ever made, this one has experiences of womanhood baked into every layer. - Autostraddle EDIT

90% Wild Nights with Emily (2019) If someone found a way to use alien tech to scan my brain and create exactly the movie I've been waiting to see my entire life, this would be it. - Autostraddle EDIT

85% Dumplin' (2018) Yes, it's formulaic. But it's fresh, too! - Autostraddle EDIT

93% The Favourite (2018) The most stunning thing about The Favourite is how it slices open three queer women and lets their messy humanity bleed all over you. - Autostraddle EDIT

88% Lez Bomb (2018) While Lez Bomb certainly doesn't hit all the shots it takes, I think it's a really important (and entertaining) step forward. - Autostraddle EDIT

98% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) McCarthy's funny, too, and not in that type-cast way she's been forced to play since Bridesmaids. I'm talking about subtle, piercing humor. - Autostraddle EDIT

87% Colette (2018) On the whole, though, Colette is a lush, brilliantly scored, perfectly acted, beautifully directed biopic. - Autostraddle EDIT

No Score Yet The Feels (2017) It's authentic and it's tender and while the climax is a little bit rushed - eh hem - it's a gay happy ending. And that, itself, is still revolutionary. - Autostraddle EDIT

87% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) Moretz's performance is understated, assured... Watching her watch Desert Hearts to watch her best friend's reaction to it is one of the realest things I've ever seen on-screen. - Autostraddle EDIT

56% Duck Butter (2018) The sex was good but the delirious lesbian mumblecore didn't leave a lasting impression. - Autostraddle EDIT

94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 is the second best superhero movie of the year, after Black Panther. - Autostraddle EDIT

93% Wonder Woman (2017) Wonder Woman flips nearly every gendered superhero trope it encounters. - Autostraddle EDIT

86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) It's a sports movie, complete with breathless action sequences, overwrought crowd reactions, and a soaring score. It's a biopic about a legend. And it's one of the best lesbian films I've ever seen. - Autostraddle EDIT

87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) She's brought an ardent screenplay, a soaring score, and unapologetically gauzy sunlight to bear on the story of the man, his wife, and their lover who created the most iconic female superhero of all time. - Autostraddle EDIT

94% Carol (2015) Iit makes me wish the word "epic" hadn't been completely diluted so I could bring the full weight of its meaning to bear on this love story. Extraordinary? Singular? Remarkable? Yes, all of those things too. - Autostraddle EDIT

94% Princess Cyd (2017) Princess Cyd is quiet almost to the point of stillness and deeply generous. It believes women will heal each other and their communities. It hopes. - Autostraddle EDIT
