Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C- 47% The Meg (2018) Turteltaub's direction never suggests that it's motivated by anything except commercial and contractual considerations.‐ AV Club

B- 69% Christopher Robin (2018) Chances are you've seen seen this all before. But at least this time, you're seeing it with Pooh.‐ AV Club

B- 100% Night Comes On (2018) Fishback and Hall move confidently between the obvious ironies and foreshadowings of Spiro's kitchen sink (as in, "everything but the ______") realism.‐ AV Club

C 42% Hot Summer Nights (2018) Hot Summer Nights is both groan-inducingly contrived and vapid, its talented young cast wasted on an incoherent script-less a web of betrayal, greed, and adolescent desire than a few dangling threads.‐ AV Club

B 100% The Bleeding Edge (2018) Dick's focus remains, as ever, on the things that make us squirm.‐ AV Club

C- 20% Zoe (2018) Wrestling with the intrinsic creepiness of the premise would involve some social commentary, self-awareness, and honest-to-God storytelling, and that's not Doremus' bag.‐ AV Club

C- 80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) The camerawork is so flat that one even misses the Robert Richardson-esque, hair-on-fire edge lighting that Haris Zambarloukos used periodically in the first film.‐ AV Club

C+ 46% Generation Wealth (2018) The conclusions that Generation Wealth draws are shallow-part mass-culture doomsaying and part paean to simplistic picket-fence values.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2018
C+ 48% Skyscraper (2018) It feels like a dumbed-down, poor man's Die Hard, despite costing a lot more to make.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
C+ 32% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) The Legacy Of A Whitetail Deer Hunter offers only the pokiest and most rote of plots.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2018
B+ 88% Whitney (2018) Macdonald suggests that the subject of Whitney was... just a human being trapped in the sort of roles we believe will ensure the happiness of the people around us and induce our own.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
B 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man And The Wasp is arguably even more of a straightforward comedy, to the point that it doesn't even have a primary villain.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
C- 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) A needless sequel that serves only to deepen one's appreciation of the original's tightwire act and suggests that screenwriter Taylor Sheridan's moral ambivalence about American power ended with the Obama presidency. ‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2018
C+ 93% Araby (Arábia) (2018) The film is far less than the sum of its possibilities.‐ AV Club

B- 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) We've seen it all before in movies and video games, but the packaging is slick and hard to resist...‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
C 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) Instead of a diversion, it offers distractions.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
C 52% A Kid Like Jake (2018) Howard's uneven and pedestrian commercial-meets-single-camera-sitcom direction tries to compensate for the extreme staginess of the script, which was adapted by Daniel Pearle from his same-titled play.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
D+ 0% Future World (2018) Franco and Cheung's unorthodox approach of directing almost the entire film in random, nomadic Steadicam shots with wobbly zooms alienates the simplistic plot.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
C 40% Mary Shelley (2018) Its de-complicated characters and conflicts don't tell us anything about what it meant to live in a time or to make something-only the vague order in which some important things happened, the result like rushed homework.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
C 17% Show Dogs (2018) There are some cases where you really can't teach an old dog new tricks.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
D- 0% Dark Crimes (2018) A few words should be said about Carrey's performance: It may be the worst dramatic acting of his career, a charmless cartoon of self-repression.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
B- 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Every cultural moment needs a smart-ass, and sometimes, you take what you can get.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
C 25% Breaking In (2018) Without suspense, all the audience has to go on are the plot mechanics, which are no great shakes, and the characters, which are paper-thin.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
B 95% Filmworker (2018) Compelling, despite its modest and uneven means.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
B- 64% Manhunt (2017) Even in its clumsiest stretches, Manhunt is fast-paced and fun, which might be the only metric that matters.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
C- 94% RBG (2018) No topic gets more than a cursory overview in Julie Cohen and Betsy West's breathlessly superficial, school-presentation-ish documentary.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
B+ No Score Yet The Great Pretender (2018) The punchlines are dark and the tone is caustic, but its central concern is a classic one: what we see in other people and how we would like to see ourselves.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 1, 2018
C+ 11% Kings (2018) It's possible to appreciate the film for recognizing both the horror and the absurdity in its subjects...and for playing exclusively in those extreme registers, yet still come to the conclusion that it's is all bark, no bite.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
B 85% Disobedience (2018) One of those rare films that benefits from taking its time to get there.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
C- 34% I Feel Pretty (2018) Amy Schumer plays yet another shallow New Yorker with self-esteem issues in I Feel Pretty, but it seems that with each starring role, the characters become more pitiful and the life lessons more corny.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
C- 46% The Devil and Father Amorth (2018) Mostly, Friedkin does the talking, never missing an opportunity to strain credulity or flaunt his credentials, which in this case begin and end at directing The Exorcist.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
C 54% Godard Mon Amour (Le redoutable) (2018) The real problem is that the movie is never laugh-out-loud funny (its best gag involves the filmmaker repeatedly breaking his famous glasses) and is too simplistic to work as drama or elaborate homage.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2018
C- 21% Submergence (2018) An objectively bad movie, paradoxically ponderous and pointless.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
B- 73% Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc (Jeannette l'enfance de Jeanne d'Arc) (2018) Dumont's early work suggested a director who wanted to be the heir to Robert Bresson and the aforementioned Dreyer, titans of formal discipline and transcendent doubt. Now he wants to be Andy Kaufman.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2018
B- 82% Beirut (2018) The screenwriterly ironies and jaundiced attitude toward international politics at least keep moving-enough to make this efficient, quality hackwork seem like a throwback to an earlier generation of Hollywood thrillers.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2018
B- 80% Chappaquiddick (2018) Here is a family that entrenched itself in the American imagination by campaigning on symbolism, and Chappaquiddick hits its better strides when it turns the camera on the relationship between its stars and script doctors.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
C- 70% Finding Your Feet (2018) Finding Your Feet doesn't have much to recommend it apart from its grossly overqualified cast, led by Imelda Staunton and Timothy Spall.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
C- 19% Midnight Sun (2018) The authentic Sparks movies at least tend to be howlers, with shamelessly overcomplicated narratives and risible twists. Midnight Sun, on the other hand, is straightforward and trite.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
C 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Simply put, it lacks its predecessor's curiosity about its world-its fascination with colorful backdrops and machines.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
B- 80% Unsane (2018) Most of the thrills here come from watching one of our canniest directors perform rattling wheelchair dollies on a waxed hospital floor while over-punctuating video-noisy close-ups and cheesy music cues.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
C+ 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) The dialogue errs on the side of the didactically obvious: "You are here because you hate your country. I am here because I love mine."‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2018
C+ 44% The Hurricane Heist (2018) The film never rises to the promise of its awesomely literal title. The stakes are as soggy as the scenery.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2018
B 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) Who knows whether it's intentional, but the leaden foot-dragging and fake-out jump scares of this first section make the brazen, entertaining slash-for-slasher's-sake action that follows seem even more like an exercise in audience complicity.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
B 96% The Death of Stalin (2018) There's an irony here: In the interest of dramatic expediency, Iannucci has made the power players of The Death Of Stalin look more competent and more decisive than their real counterparts.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
A- 100% The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach (1968) The Chronicle Of Anna Magdalena Bach disregards most conventions of costume drama to ask some very human questions about history, what it takes to be an artist, and what movies can tell us about ourselves.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
C+ 89% Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun? (2018) For someone so gloomily aware of his own privilege, Wilkerson spends a lot of the film playing dumb and speculating-a writer's trick for giving shape to a piece with a thesis and no conclusion.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2018
D 16% Mute (2018) With an insipid script, no narrative line, and a cast of unlikable characters, Mute has to get by on looks-neon Cold War hand-me-downs with all the workmanship of journeyman TV.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
C+ 57% The Young Karl Marx (Le jeune Karl Marx) (2018) From its lifelessly anachronistic English dialogue to its Masterpiece Theatre lighting and production design, The Young Karl Marx tries to filter radical thought through the pace and aesthetics of a middlebrow drama.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
D+ 25% Samson (2018) A bargain-bin biblical epic that delivers the requisite mass-murder-by-ass-jaw as a cheapjack approximation of Zack Snyder-esque pomp, but is for the most part clinically dull.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
B 97% Black Panther (2018) It's taken a decade and 18 films, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe has finally produced a superhero movie that feels like it was ripped from the pages of a comic book.‐ AV Club
