Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 59% The Foreigner (2017) The Foreigner is a good, lean cut of meat-in other words, a typical Martin Campbell movie, expeditious and cold-blooded in its cross-cut, cloak-and-dagger plotting and violence.‐ AV Club

C- 62% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Never hinting at the wit or philosophizing of the Pooh stories, the film mostly makes Milne look like an inexpressive hack.‐ AV Club

C+ 93% Spielberg (2017) Ehat do its 145 minutes (an appropriately Spielberg-ian chunk of time) really tell us about Steven Spielberg, aside from the fact that the man has made a lot of movies? Not much.‐ AV Club

B 100% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) Unfolding as a series of thrift-shop-find vignettes, Faces Places has oodles of charm and moments of beauty, but lacks the essayistic point-of-view of Varda's best documentaries.‐ AV Club

C- 43% The Mountain Between Us (2017) Remove the nonsensical characterizations and The Mountain Between Us becomes a cornball paean to rock formations and (mostly male) beauty.‐ AV Club

C 50% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) For the most part, the movie is too busy with its ungainly, underwhelming plotting to be even stupidly fun.‐ AV Club

B- 77% Darkest Hour (2017) There aren't thrilling dramatic insights to be found here, but Wright's showboating is unflaggingly watchable.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2017
B+ 95% First Reformed (2017) Quieter and more sensitive than anything else Schrader has directed, with Ethan Hawke giving one of his finest and most moving performances in the lead role.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2017
B- 57% I Love You, Daddy (2017) Being a grown-up, as far as I Love You, Daddy is concerned, means picking your failures and frustrations; it picks to be too long and poky.‐ AV Club

C 94% The Disaster Artist (2017) The Disaster Artist is just barely a movie.‐ AV Club

B+ 68% mother! (2017) It's almost unbelievable that something this narratively arty is being released as a mainstream horror movie, but the filmmaking ranks as some of Aronofsky's most skillful.‐ AV Club

B- 84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Though told in broad strokes, its version of the story deserves credit for never buying into the hype and surreal pageantry of the Astrodome showdown.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
C- 31% The Current War (2017) The prevailing mood of The Current War is indifference; there's no point listing the crimes against the past committed by Michael Mitnick's dramatically inept script ...‐ AV Club

C 44% Downrange (2017) Downrange is trash, but in an almost elemental vein ...‐ AV Club

B 88% Euthanizer (Armomurhaaja) (2017) A homegrown and unassumingly grotesque head-scratcher ...‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
B 94% Bodied (2017) Loosely a battle-rap All About Eve, but it's so thickly packed with technical and verbal dazzle that whatever biting point it might have had to make ends up completely lost.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2017
B No Score Yet Good Luck (2017) A striking documentary mood-piece by the American experimental director Ben Russell.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
B- 88% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) Kaurismäki ... remains committed to dinge, tunelessly drowsy twang-rock, and self-plagiarizing shaggy-dog plots.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
C+ 50% Boris Without Beatrice (Boris Sans Béatrice) (2016) The movie is undermined by its conceptual maundering and impersonality; it can be clinical and opaque one scene, conventional and over-determined the next.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
D+ 21% Birth of the Dragon (2017) There's no reason a movie in which Bruce Lee and Steve McQueen (er, "Steve McKee") duke it out with Chinatown gangsters in mid-1960s San Francisco has any business being this joyless and dull.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2017
C+ 82% Beach Rats (2017) Despite [Hittman's] evocative styling and Dickinson's surprisingly assured lead performance, her sophomore feature remains confined in monotonous, psychologically shallow coming-of-age-drama indiedom.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
B+ 91% Marjorie Prime (2017) The movie lacks ostentation; it appears so simple and unworldly and unhip that one wants to protect it.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
C+ 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) The only ones who seem to be truly enjoying themselves are Jackson and Reynolds-even during the boring parts where they have to talk about their feelings.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
C 59% Lemon (2017) A hack sitcom-complete with lame jokes about talent agents and commercial auditions and an overbearing Jewish family composed mostly of character actors-trying its hardest and loudest to come off as freakish and off-putting.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
C+ 15% The Dark Tower (2017) It would be a waste of everyone's time to go on about how this 95-minute movie deviates from the source. Let's just say it turns The Dark Tower into something generic, and leave it at that.‐ AV Club

D+ 35% Kidnap (2017) Utter, unabashed garbage.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
C 95% Step (2017) The particulars of even something as simple as stepping itself -- how the team actually choreographs their routines, for instance -- remain fuzzy, and by the end of this brief and breezy doc, much still remains unspoken or unexplored.‐ AV Club

B- 76% Atomic Blonde (2017) Theron owns it. She purrs every line and relishes every opportunity to crack her neck while reclining into a leather chair.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
B- 82% Detroit (2017) There is even a reason to admire its dawdling moments: Among all the movies that wallow in the horrors of violence against America's black citizenry, there are few that devote this much time to grief.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
B 47% Person to Person (2017) A sweet, light puff of a movie, Person To Person succeeds on the strength of its affection for shaggy-dog stories and the personalities who waltz in and out of them.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2017
A- 92% Dunkirk (2017) It's at once minimalist and maximalist, cynical and dopey, a big-boy white elephant art film that is actually a lean and mean suspense set-piece machine.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
C+ 83% Santoalla (2017) A story is only as interesting as what can be drawn from it, and Becker and Mehrer seem reluctant to draw too much, perhaps realizing the confines they have to work within; even at a scant 83 minutes, the movie feels over-stretched.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2017
B- 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) There isn't a moment in this ludicrous, lushly self-indulgent movie that doesn't feel like its creator is having the time of his life.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
B- 94% Endless Poetry (Poesía Sin Fin) (2017) A bildungsroman, something along the lines of The Sorrows Of Young Alejandro: heartbreak, unrequited love, initiation, artistic self-discovery.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
C 69% To the Bone (2017) Somewhere in trying to externalize a character's problems through corny and ham-fisted subplots, it loses her altogether.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
B 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) An audacious, idiosyncratic piece of blockbuster filmmaking: a mix of Pixar, revenge Westerns, and Apocalypse Now ...‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2017
C 81% The Rehearsal (2016) Such a hodgepodge of arthouse references, arch distancing effects, and emotionally vacant wide-screen compositions that one could easily mistake it for an awkward debut film.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
D 16% The House (2017) The pace is hectic, but the jokes just aren't there.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
C 60% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Does the sight of a mulleted figure in shoulder pads blasting away his foes with a weaponized keytar sound mildly amusing? Congratulations, you'll be able to sit through this.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
B 86% Okja (2017) Okja veers wildly, but never stalls; if Bong ... never squares the film's satirical means with its sentimental ends, he at least throws the weight of his considerable filmmaking talent behind both.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2017
B 100% My Journey Through French Cinema (Voyage À Travers Le Cinéma Français) (2017) A selective, eccentric survey of the richest periods of French moviemaking and, by extension, film in general.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2017
C+ 89% The Ornithologist (O ornitólogo) (2017) Won't be seen by anyone who it might shock and won't surprise anybody who's spent more than a few days around a trendy film festival sidebar.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2017
C 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Shapeless mounds of parts and pistons, slugging and slicing each other in front of ruins and spaceships as they gush sparks and dribble oily green robot juice.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
C 21% The Book of Henry (2017) What Trevorrow and screenwriter Gregg Hurwitz have created is just a feature-length put-on that flirts queasily with fascism.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
D 19% Once Upon a Time in Venice (2017) A tiresome imitation of smart-alecky Shane Black whodunits like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Last Boy Scout.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
C+ 88% Maudie (2017) Once the years and decades start ticking by unacknowledged, the well-developed and subtle characterizations established by Hawkins and Hawke disappear into a cloud of aging makeup and incident ...‐ AV Club

B 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) Michell's style is handsomely professional and sometimes tasteful to a fault, but even when the movie loses its grasp on the sicker and more troubling undercurrents of its central relationship, it can coast by ...‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
B- 100% Dawson City: Frozen Time (2017) Frozen Time is at its best in moments ... when it uses Morrison's obsessive interest in cinematic detritus to express rather than inform.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
B- 77% Beatriz at Dinner (2017) Though Beatriz At Dinner goes for its share of low blows against the vapidly white and well-to-do ... its small pleasures lie in the way it sidesteps cheap caricature.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
C- 49% Churchill (2017) If only the sole purpose of Churchill weren't to take ol' Winnie off the plinth and make him seem like a little more of a flesh-and-blood man-a goal the movie fails on account of being inert, decorous, and almost absurdly repetitive.‐ AV Club
