T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/10 24% Miss Bala (2019) Rodriguez is underserved in a film that wants to be a superhero movie but ends up an insulting and incompetent B-movie. - Slashfilm EDIT

7/10 59% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Vibrant and tactile, Alita: Battle Angel leans into eye-popping spectacle while grounding the dystopian story in a warm humanism that has otherwise eluded anime adaptations up until now. - Slashfilm EDIT

6.5/10 21% Serenity (2019) Serenity is splashy, it's weird, it's wild, and it knows it. And it's a highly ambitious movie that offers something that fewer and fewer movies do these days: a genuine surprise. - Slashfilm EDIT

4/10 58% A Dog's Way Home (2019) Who is this for? Not the kid next to me squirming impatiently as Bella nearly dies of dehydration. - Slashfilm EDIT

8/10 65% Aquaman (2018) Wan manages to marry Arthurian fantasy and swashbuckling adventure with camp in Aquaman, a film that feels a little like a miracle in Warner Bros.' catalogue of superhero movies - Slashfilm EDIT

91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Crazy Rich Asians offers a vibrant, wildly entertaining, and achingly sincere portrait of a rarely represented culture. As for that weighty proverb, Crazy Rich Asians doesn't necessarily "move the world." But it does nudge it in the right direction. - Slashfilm EDIT

7/10 77% Believer (2018) Believer somewhat subscribes to the character types and recognizable tropes of the genre, the twists feel fresh enough and the tangled webs of drug world conspiracies are riveting enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. - Slashfilm EDIT

8.5/10 73% The Party's Just Beginning (2018) far from a vanity project for Gillan - it's a grand entrance for a promising, bold new director. - Slashfilm EDIT

8/10 87% All About Nina (2018) Deftly swings from comedy to tragedy, thanks in large part to Winstead's revelatory performance and to Vive's intensely personal script. - Slashfilm EDIT

6/10 68% The Seagull (2018) "There are spells cast by this lake," Dr. Dorn muses as the various love affairs rise to the surface. If only The Seagull could cast such a spell on the audience. - Slashfilm EDIT

9/10 100% Little Woods (2019) Little Woods is a bleak, powerful portrait of middle America that never veers on cloying, and handles difficult current-day issues like opioid abuse and abortion with grace. - Slashfilm EDIT

56% Duck Butter (2018) It's unfortunate, then, that Duck Butter only simmers and never sizzles. The emotions never feel more real, but its payoff never feel more hollow. - Slashfilm EDIT

8/10 88% Stockholm (2018) Take Stockholm as it is: a suspenseful, riotous black comedy interlaced with moments of heartfelt emotion. - Slashfilm EDIT
