Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
8/10 No Score Yet Trollhunters is an always engaging and often wildly entertaining addition to the kids fantasy genre. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 5, 2016
6/10 25% Ben-Hur (2016) It can't always escape the shadow of its namesake, but when this Ben-Hur comes into its own, it does so with a thrilling fire-and-brimstone ferocity. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 18, 2016
3/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) Haphazardly paced and generically plotted, Suicide Squad benefits immensely from the winning presence of Will Smith's Deadshot and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 2, 2016
8/10 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Star Trek Beyond offers a simple, but much-need message of strength in unity and power in diversity. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 21, 2016
4/10 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) All the CGI grandeur in the world can't help this Tarzan outrun its uncomfortable, white-savior overtones. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 29, 2016
5/10 28% Warcraft (2016) Hobbled by mediocre acting, bad pacing and worse writing, Warcraft is still a visual milestone and a cinematic experience worth getting hopelessly lost in. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 8, 2016
8/10 100% The Dresser (2015) Thoughtful and thrilling in spite of its modest external appearances, The Dresser finds two of our finest thespians at the peak of their powers. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 30, 2016
4/10 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) All the candy-colored visuals and outsized performances in Underland can't make up for this sequel's thoroughly unimaginative story and cookie-cutter execution. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 25, 2016
7/10 92% The Nice Guys (2016) Boisterous and bombastic without sacrificing the dark cynicism at its heart, The Nice Guys is a violent, propulsive, and knowingly trashy caper that puts a premium on hell-for-leather, hard-hitting entertainment value. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 18, 2016
4/10 27% How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town (2016) Thematically sweet-natured and narratively salacious, How To Plan An Orgy In A Small Town feels caught between rom-com formula and envelope-pushing debauchery, opting instead for a decent yet inescapably dull middle ground. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 12, 2016
6/10 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) Deeply weird, definitely unnecessary, and damnably entertaining, this is cotton-candy cinema: fluffy, sugary, colorful, and so easy to consume that its actual quality becomes inconsequential. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Apr 20, 2016
3/10 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Moments of visual splendor can't save Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, a comically, cosmically terrible waste of a blockbuster budget, from its disjointed, dreary narrative and vacuous treatment of its central, long-anticipated conflict. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 23, 2016
3/10 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) Hollywood's most dishwater-dull YA franchise hits its messy, moronic nadir in a movie that defies narrative sense, basic smarts and any semblance of a stimulating story at every turn. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 17, 2016
2/10 25% London Has Fallen (2016) Crude and cruel in the extreme, London Has Fallen is jingoistic propaganda for the era of global terror, a toxic cocktail of mind-numbing action and miasmic xenophobia that should be swiftly disavowed by all involved. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 2, 2016
9/10 98% Zootopia (2016) Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as its long-eared lead while still brilliantly conscious of social issues, Zootopia represents Disney at its most visually resplendent and thematically ambitious. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 2, 2016
5/10 16% Gods Of Egypt (2016) Batty and bonkers beyond belief, Gods of Egypt is an unusually audacious exercise in fantasy world-building, and the visual imagination it displays almost makes up for its shameful casting calls. Almost. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 25, 2016
7/10 53% Triple 9 (2016) Triple 9 unfolds in a hyper-masculine haze that's more conducive to adrenaline-rush action and a pervasive sense of tension than it is to narrative clarity. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 22, 2016
4/10 47% How To Be Single (2016) Caught between empowering ideas and Hollywood formula, this conflicted and confused rom-com wants to sweep its characters off their feet while encouraging them to stand on their own. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 11, 2016
3/10 15% Regression (2016) Listless and lazy, Regression is an ugly mess of genre tropes that tries (and fails) to pass itself off as an atmospheric dissection of hypnosis and hysteria. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 7, 2016
3/10 10% Dirty Grandpa (2016) It lives up - or rather down - to its title, sending its stars on a hedonistic road trip with a pink Mini Cooper's worth of sexist, racist, homophobic and ugly jokes for company. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 21, 2016
7/10 16% The 5th Wave (2016) Bolstered by the sublime Chloë Grace Moretz and a surprising refusal to cushion the brutality of its setup, this dystopian detour is entertaining and engrossing despite its familiar parts. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 21, 2016
4/5 83% Lamb (2016) Lamb's candor, willpower and thoughtfulness in addressing its central questions is as thrillingly unusual as it is critical to answering them. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 21, 2015
2/10 0% The Ridiculous 6 (2015) The Ridiculous 6 is the worst thing to happen to Netflix since its self-inflicted Qwikster fiasco back in 2011, a two-hours-too-long cesspool of gross-out gags and casual bigotry. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 19, 2015
10/10 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Star Wars: The Force Awakens is some kind of miracle, as it works on every imaginable level. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 16, 2015
4/10 60% Sisters (2015) Fey and Poehler bring irrepressible chemistry and ace comic timing to this thoroughly run-of-the-mill house-party comedy, but the puerile and predictable material is beneath them. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 15, 2015
3/10 60% Joy (2015) Joy's most monumental failure isn't its uneven pacing, miserable dialogue or wonky framework - it's the glacial remove with which Russell regards and Lawrence plays the film's eponymous dreamer. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 15, 2015
4/10 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) As handsomely constructed as the wooden vessel on which it's largely set, yet dramatically choppy as the ocean its protagonists set out to conquer, In the Heart of the Sea feels like the most workmanlike adaptation of its ambitious story possible. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 8, 2015
7/10 66% The Night Before (2015) The Night Before's blend of wacked-out whimsyand warm-hearted yuletide cheer is more than enough to smooth over any narrative bumps in its R-rated sleigh ride through the pleasantly familiar lessons of Christmas movies past. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 17, 2015
5/10 16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) The Last Witch Hunter remains inexplicably mundane and monotonous throughout, even when Vin Diesel swings a flaming broadsword at his supernatural nemesis, which should say something about how utterly devoid of cinematic magic it really is. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 22, 2015
6/10 29% Momentum (2015) You can say this much for Momentum - it more than sustains its own. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 16, 2015
7/10 19% The Perfect Guy (2015) This devilishly entertaining, slickly executed and surprisingly thought-provoking film tries much harder than it needed to - and is all the better for it. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 12, 2015
8/10 96% Creep (2015) Creep will tickle your funny bone and screw with your head - even as it rips your nerves to shreds. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 2, 2015
8/10 79% Z For Zachariah (2015) Z For Zachariah is a quietly provocative and perturbing slice of post-apocalyptic drama, distinguished by a trio of fine performances and its pervasive ambiguity. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 28, 2015
2/10 13% Return to Sender (2015) Pike and audiences alike deserve far better than this agonizingly pointless and amateurishly made exploitation flick. Just take the title's advice. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 14, 2015
5/10 79% Cop Car (2015) After starting strong as a promising, technically accomplished genre workout, Cop Car gets bogged down by wanton brutality that's far cheaper and more exploitative than genuinely suspenseful. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 9, 2015
5/10 68% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet offers splendid animation and occasional pearls of wisdom, wrapped in a vexingly dreary narrative made much less tolerable by its erratic tone. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 7, 2015
4/5 100% Two Step (2015) One of the things I really admire about Two Step is that it isn't afraid to blaze its own trail. Though the film's set up as a simple home invasion thriller, there's a lot more going on. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 29, 2015
6/10 83% The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015) Grim but wholly gripping, The Stanford Prison Experiment is as painfully intense (and intensely interesting) as the real study at its center. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 23, 2015
4/5 82% The Overnight (2015) Like the sex comedy it's billed as, The Overnight teases and titillates, but the film's sincerity addressing the messiness of monogamy is what cements its bawdy brilliance. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 22, 2015
2/5 43% Madame Bovary (2015) Handsomely staged but regrettably aloof, Madame Bovary never really understands its tragic heroine. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jun 15, 2015
1.5/5 22% Barely Lethal (2015) Not edgy enough to commit to its premise nor witty enough to mine it for laughs, Barely Lethal is really just a Disney Channel Original Movie disguised as something more worthwhile. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 30, 2015
7/10 80% Nightingale (2015) David Oyelowo delivers an unnerving and unforgettable performance in this nail-biter of a one-man-show. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 29, 2015
6/10 90% (T)ERROR (2015) It's disappointing that (T)ERROR rarely enthralls the way its incendiary subject suggests it should, but this is a vital communiqué all the same. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 20, 2015
7/10 50% Tomorrowland (2015) Tomorrowland is an audacious, untidy work that wants us to be better and dream bigger. It's that rare summer blockbuster with something to say, and even if it stumbles over its words at times, we'd nonetheless be well advised to listen. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 19, 2015
5/10 85% The Wolfpack (2015) As interesting as its central family is, The Wolfpack is too meandering to get at some of the tougher questions audiences will have. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 18, 2015
9/10 93% Slow West (2015) Subverting a classic set-up with thoughtful dialogue, uproarious sight gags and wincingly brutal violence, Maclean has made a mean, lean Western more viciously entertaining and visually mesmerizing than anything in the genre since 2010's True Grit. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 13, 2015
6/10 83% Thought Crimes (2015) This is all compelling, stomach-churning stuff, but one wishes that Carr dug deeper into the broader implications of the cannibal cop's downfall. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 12, 2015
5/10 25% Skin Trade (2015) It's an undeniable kick to watch Jaa, ever graceful and balletic, getting thrown around like a puny rag doll by his man-mountain co-star, even if Skin Trade is a little too ham-fisted to pack any serious punch. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 8, 2015
5/10 73% Welcome to Me (2015) Kristen Wiig dazzles in what may be her best performance to date - and what is certainly her trickiest - but the actress is diminished by how unexpectedly rudderless the film feels. ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted May 2, 2015
9/10 91% The End Of The Tour (2015) Thought-provoking and achingly beautiful, this is cinematic philosophy, eulogy and celebration all at once, presented without adornment but nevertheless breathtaking in how insightfully it explores the torments and triumphs of a brilliant mind. ‐ We Got This Covered
