T-Meter Title | Year
1/5 64% Child's Play (2019) Child's Play is thematically disparate enough from the original, unlike other horror remakes being conveyed out of the Hollywood abattoir, that it justifies its existence. Unfortunately, said existence is entirely wasted by incongruous filmmaking. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 100% Don't Be a Dick About It (2018) Upheld by it's huge, wholesome heart, Don't Be a Dick About It works tremendously as a slice of life, humanist comedy, serving plentiful guffaws through it's examination of the petty conflicts specific to brotherhood. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 91% Gloria Bell (2019) Gloria Bell smashes the Bechdel Test and further solidifies Sebastián Lelio as an auteur capable of immense empathy. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 54% Ma (2019) [Octavia] Spencer's effort is undermined by Ma's wildly inconsistent tone, one-dimensional character writing, and a terribly paced finale of cringeworthy body horror, a sequence which feels like an entirely different film in itself. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 100% First Love (Hatsukoi) (2019) First Love is a fun, adrenaline-fueled crime thriller, though it does little to stand out from the rest of the director's filmography. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) The battles are epic, the shots are wide, and the roars are loud, but no level of overcompensation can make up for laughable dialogue, hokey editing and a disregard for character development - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 48% Bel Canto (2018) Bel canto literally translates to "beautiful singing", but there's nothing beautiful to be found in the titular film. A woefully written, poorly paced hostage thriller which struggles to hold its faltering note. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Style and content almost perfectly coalesce in Endgame, combining a well-structured narrative and rich characterisation with grand set pieces. - One Room With A View EDIT
