Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 100% Homo Sapiens (2016) "One might argue that 20 minutes or so is enough, but what Homo Sapiens offers in its succession of carefully framed shots is sometimes too tantalizing to resist. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 28, 2016
B- 82% Equity (2016) "Equity may not be the fanciest or flashiest of financial thrillers-more like off-brand David Fincher or Steven Soderbergh-but it gets the job done. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 28, 2016
B- 88% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) "Studious in its homages to somber masters past and present, The Childhood Of A Leader pulls out intriguing moments whenever it threatens to turn repetitious. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 22, 2016
B+ 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "The movie bounces along, hurtling its heroes over colliding wreckage and into currents of artificial gravity, pausing just long enough for a punchline or a knowing exchange of looks. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 22, 2016
C 68% The Infiltrator (2016) "With this ersatz sting flick, [Furman's] made something so amateurish and baffling that it comes around to being memorable. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 12, 2016
B 71% Men Go To Battle (2016) "It might seem apolitical at first glance, but Men Go To Battle's ramshackle vibe has its subversive qualities. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 7, 2016
C 28% Fathers And Daughters (2016) "Fathers And Daughters attacks the base urge for sentimental gratification as though it were on a suicide mission. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 7, 2016
B- 90% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) "Gondry offers up his take on the long-running European tradition of unambitious, naturalistic coming-of-age portraiture. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 30, 2016
B- 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) "For all its flaws, Election Year has those baseline pleasures associated with violent American B-movies of the 1970s and '80s-that mix of simplicity and scuzzy, juicy execution. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 30, 2016
C+ 32% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) "Resurgence ends up falling victim to its attempts to differentiate itself while remaining completely derivative. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 24, 2016
C+ 77% The Shallows (2016) "A fitfully entertaining mix of offscreen gore and Maxim-esque T&A. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 23, 2016
B+ 91% Three (Saam Yan Hang) (2016) "A rollickingly entertaining movie. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 23, 2016
B+ 86% Cosmos (2016) "From the hold-music smooth-jazz score to the overtly theatrical performances, everything about Cosmos is designed to confound. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 16, 2016
C- 68% Central Intelligence (2016) "A shambolic high-concept farce that doubles as a cautionary tale of where studio comedies go wrong. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 16, 2016
B 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) "Now You See Me 2 gets giddy on its own unreality. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 9, 2016
C+ 66% Diary of a Chambermaid (Journal d'une femme de chambre) (2016) "It touches on the novel's pessimism, decadence, and politics only in brief, fervid moments. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 9, 2016
B 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) "It's when Popstar lampoons the specifics of modern-day pop materialism (awkward social media endorsements, over-sharing, an obsession with branding and catchphrases) that it finds its most inspired gags. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 2, 2016
C 45% Approaching the Unknown (2016) "Too high-minded to ever stoop to suspense or fun ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 2, 2016
C+ 80% Jia Zhangke, a Guy from Fenyang (2016) "The problem with art like Jia's is that a straightforward approach isn't going to reveal anything that isn't already there in the work or document anything that the movies don't already document themselves. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 26, 2016
B- 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Much of what makes X-Men: Apocalypse legitimately interesting also makes it frustrating and lopsided. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 23, 2016
B+ 91% Kaili Blues (Lu Bian Ye Can) "Bi Gan's debut feature Kaili Blues ducks and doubles back like a fugitive trying to lose a tail, finding itself in stranger and stranger places. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "The Nice Guys is funny enough when it sticks to its heroes-whether pinned in a tight spot or bickering with each other-that its less-than-compelling intrigues and digressions come as an acceptable trade-off. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B+ 100% Kill Zone 2 (Saat po long 2) (2016) "Cheang keeps the movie in a state of exaggerated emotion; it opens with the choral "Lacrimosa" from Mozart's Requiem and a slow-mo shot tinted arterial red, and rarely lets up from there. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
B+ 62% High-Rise (2016) "As in Ballard's novel, the building isn't just a dystopian microcosm of alienation and stratification, with the wealthiest living at the top. It also seems to create a new reality of its own ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
C+ 80% Sunset Song (2016) "Stultifying in spots, the period drama Sunset Song marks an unexpected misstep for Terence Davies, the eccentric filmmaker whose movies evoke limbo states of memory and repressed feeling using a very British vocabulary of drab spaces. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
B+ 81% Belladonna of Sadness (Kanashimi no Beradona) (1973) "Perhaps too ambitious for its own good (or at least its budget), the film is impossible to dismiss, even if it exhausts its reserve of ideas. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
A 96% Band of Outsiders (Bande à part) (1964) "Behind its substantial charm and light touch is a movie that's more morbid, alienated, and personal than it lets on. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
C 89% Dheepan (2016) "Dheepan aspires to be a Taxi Driver for today's Europe, but ends up as a crude cross between Death Wish and Ken Loach. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
D 0% Term Life (2016) "This is the kind of material that can't be elevated without help from behind the camera. Instead, the actors are left to gesture aimlessly through a stupefacient fog of clichés and insipid direction. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
C- 13% Special Correspondents (2016) "Whatever point it might have is dulled by Gervais' cursory direction and a shortage of real-world overlap. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2016
C- 17% Ratchet & Clank (2016) "Like a lot of entertainment pitched at the family matinee audience, it sits at the zero point of watchability. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2016
B 82% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) "Like the horrific internal logic of an authentic fairy tale, the film's imperfections are part of what makes it unique. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 21, 2016
B- 88% My Big Night (Mi Gran Noche) (2016) "De La Iglesia is one of those directors who always gives off the impression that's he's having the time of his life, and he packs My Big Night with exaggerated angles, pops of super-saturated color, and pop-culture winks. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
B- 94% The Jungle Book (2016) "Talking animals have never looked so good, which is a bigger feat than it sounds. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
C+ 31% Criminal (2016) "Perhaps it's almost too perfect that the movie should suffer from a personality conflict of its own; too bad that it's the uninspired direction and not the demented pulpiness that dominates in the end. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
C+ 53% Demolition (2016) "Despite a few electric moments, the movie never makes anything of its stylized displays of frustration, ending in a whiff of narrative and emotional cop-outs. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 7, 2016
C 48% Hardcore Henry (2016) "Hardcore Henry never aspires to rise above its one gimmick. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 7, 2016
B- 100% I Don't Belong Anywhere - Le cinéma de Chantal Akerman "This brief and effective primer on Akerman's work ("I think the word 'career' is inappropriate for my life," she says at the beginning) doubles as a profile of the outspoken, animated filmmaker. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
D 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Williams is never shown composing; if characters didn't occasionally mention it, you'd never know he was a songwriter, let alone one of the all-time American greats. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
C+ 88% Francofonia (2016) "Francofonia is scatterbrained, occasionally leaden, frequently redundant, crammed with false starts and dead ends, wrapped in gauzy greenish murk. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
B+ 86% Afternoon (Na Ri Xia Wu) "Candid and audaciously minimalist, Afternoon risks self-indulgence, but comes out with insight. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
C+ 88% No Home Movie (2016) "There is an element of drama that an audience very familiar with Akerman's work can't help but project on to the pointedly non-eventful footage. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 30, 2016
B- 88% Born To Be Blue (2016) "The film is given a spark of life by the inspired casting of Ethan Hawke. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 24, 2016
B 90% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) "It's a treat to watch, covered in eccentric strokes and oddball details that seem too specific not to be extremely personal. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 17, 2016
A- 83% Midnight Special (2016) "Midnight Special defines characters through what they can't understand, contrasting fear of the unknown with faith in it, and flipping the supernatural into a metaphor for the everyday. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 17, 2016
C- 33% Me Him Her (2016) "As scraggly and eager as a teenage cover band fumbling through its first set. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 10, 2016
C+ 62% Creative Control (2016) "Combines a satire of corporate hipsterdom with a metaphor for personal alienation and sexual fantasy, without ever completely committing to either. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 10, 2016
A 100% Late Spring (1949) "Each shot in Late Spring is striking on its own; the mature Ozu belongs to that rare category of filmmakers whose work can be recognized from a single frame. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 3, 2016
F 26% London Has Fallen (2016) "London Has Fallen is one of those rare films that is good at absolutely nothing. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 2, 2016
C 16% Gods Of Egypt (2016) "A wannabe franchise-starter that feels like it was adapted from a tabletop role-playing game, with strict rules that need to be repeatedly stated out loud and a bestiary of creatures. " ‐ AV Club
