Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
79% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "It's something like a summation of Joel and Ethan Coen's films: Meaning is a missing frame, human folly is the star and only the dialogue is divine. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/4 93% The Lady In The Van (2015) "There are few false notes in the sturdy, pleasantly entertaining The Lady in the Van. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 14, 2016
83% The Revenant (2015) "No one is more in rhapsody over the manliness of the mission than Inarritu. His bleak and beautiful movie is overwrought, but it's also soaked through with the brutality of the frontier and the tragedy of its indigenous people. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 22, 2015
60% Sisters (2015) "As has so often been the case when it comes to Fey's movie choices, an opportunity has been lost. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 21, 2015
31% Chappie (2015) "Its oddly jumbled machinery never clicks. The logic of Chappie gradually disintegrates, becoming increasingly farcical. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 14, 2015
88% The Big Short (2015) "It's a movie for that modern American experience of looking around and seeing so much corporate corruption that one's head might explode. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 11, 2015
82% Chi-Raq (2015) "It's wildly uneven but it is wild. There's plenty here to quibble with (the film's title prompted outrage in Chicago), but unassailable is its passion to bring attention and compassion to Chicago's blood-soaked streets. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 2, 2015
77% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "If the story is uneven, the scenery is consistently pristine. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Nov 24, 2015
70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "Lawrence, still the magnetic center of the saga, can elevate the material only so much. Four years clearly wasn't fast enough for The Hunger Games. Lawrence outgrew this stuff long ago. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Nov 17, 2015
2/4 31% By The Sea (2015) "Too languid and artfully accessorized to work as intended. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Nov 11, 2015
64% Spectre (2015) "Spectre is Craig's fourth Bond movie and his muscular tenure has been defined not just by his full embodiment of the character, but his overall stewardship. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Nov 4, 2015
86% Steve Jobs (2015) "The Full Sorkin Treatment has electrified a well-trod subject. But it also smothers it in artifice. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Oct 15, 2015
69% Crimson Peak (2015) "As even [Del Toro's] last film, the kaiju monster movie Pacific Rim, proved, there may be no better conjurer of color in movies right now. His dreams, and nightmares, are in technicolor. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Oct 14, 2015
2.5/4 46% A Walk In The Woods (2015) "It's light on its feet, even though its geriatric woodsmen are plodding and grunting. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Sep 1, 2015
46% No Escape (2015) "Taut, well-made and entirely dubious. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Aug 26, 2015
88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "Brashly winning and unapologetically self-serving. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Aug 13, 2015
94% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) "Thank goodness the irreverent but earnest Diary of a Teenage Girl avoids the moralizing that would usually accompany a film about young people, sex and drugs. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Aug 6, 2015
60% Southpaw (2015) "In bloody close-ups and bruising sounds, Fuqua captures the blinding brutality inside the ring. But his faith is never in question: This is a parable that believes strongest in boxing, itself. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 21, 2015
80% Ant-Man (2015) "The result is a film not quite sure of itself, like it's wearing clothes a size too big. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 16, 2015
75% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "If ever there was a semi-entertaining movie that sabotages itself with tastelessness and misogyny, this is it. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 13, 2015
61% The Little Death (2015) "Frequently funny and sometimes perhaps offensive in the darkness of its humor. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 9, 2015
55% Minions (2015) "What are the Minions but stand-ins for kids?... Nothing makes them double over like a good pratfall, and they will insist on a goodnight kiss or bedtime story. Teaming and relentless, they will melt the heart of any guardian, even a supervillain. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 7, 2015
96% Amy (2015) "Amy is a clear-eyed, deeply empathetic view of Winehouse, whose huge talent and sudden fame made too many forget she was still just a vulnerable young woman in serious need of help. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 2, 2015
25% Terminator Genisys (2015) "Schwarzenegger's return to his most iconic role provides much of the appeal of this otherwise purposeless redo. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jun 29, 2015
98% Inside Out (2015) "What's most refreshing about "Inside Out" is its inversion of the standard prescriptions of big-budget animation: It's ultimately about the importance of embracing sadness. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jun 18, 2015
71% Jurassic World (2015) "Jurassic World, the latest incarnation of the franchise, is lacking the deft sense of wonderment, wit and suspense that guided the original. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jun 10, 2015
B 93% Spy (2015) "It's a globe-trotting tour of McCarthy's talent, throughout which she's practically always kicking butt. Who was that double-O-what's-his-face, anyway? " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jun 4, 2015
1/4 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) ""Hot Pursuit" feels like a comedy that forgot its comedian. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted May 7, 2015
2.5/4 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "The movie's action sequences and sequel-baiting suck up much of its oxygen, and the magnitude of battles dwarf the smaller moments. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Apr 23, 2015
87% Lambert & Stamp (2015) "Riotously entertaining. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Mar 31, 2015
29% Insurgent (2015) "The final Divergent book will be split into two movies, a future that is indeed a little dystopian. Much brighter, though, are the blossoming careers of Woodley and Teller. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Mar 20, 2015
26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "Jupiter Ascending unfolds as a mostly entertaining mess, a cosmic soup of baroque grandeur that the Wachowskis swim happily through, even if few others will. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Feb 5, 2015
3.5/4 99% Timbuktu (2015) "Avoiding stereotypes, the movie shrinks larger political and religious battles down to the people of a desert town - city dwellers and nomadic Tuareg people out in the dunes - being forced to change by a handful of halfhearted oppressors. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 28, 2015
3/4 34% Blackhat (2015) "In terms of both its global locales and cast, few movies have been as riveting in their exploration of the friend/enemy relationship between China and the U.S. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 14, 2015
72% American Sniper (2015) "American Sniper, based on Navy SEAL marksman Chris Kyle's best-selling memoir, is both a tribute to the warrior and a lament for war. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 10, 2015
89% A Most Violent Year (2015) "The performance by Isaac is commanding. His restrained businessman and aspiring immigrant clearly evokes Pacino's Michael Corleone, and it's a testament to Isaac that he can get even within a mile of that comparison. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 8, 2015
77% Fury (2014) "It's an "unflinching" account of war -- "unflinching," in quotes, because every moment of the film is composed to grind your face into the muck and be proud of itself for doing so. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 5, 2015
97% Life Itself (2014) "What comes through most in Life Itself, a film named after Ebert's 2011 memoir, is his great, open-minded vigor. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 5, 2015
3.5/4 99% Selma (2015) "There's a stirring freshness to the cinema of "Selma," and it's not just because of Bradford Young's rich, moody photography. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 24, 2014
3/4 51% The Interview (2014) ""The Interview" struggles to really illuminate anything about the stranger-than-fiction Orwellian nightmare that is North Korea, but its attempt is admirable. It deserves to be seen. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 18, 2014
60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "The magic, fleeting to start with, is mostly gone. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 17, 2014
27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "For an epic, there are, at best, only two clearly seen characters in Exodus. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 11, 2014
2.5/4 90% Wild (2014) ""Wild" is ultimately unique for its twist, even if it comes by an unfortunately intrusive narration. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 3, 2014
35% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) "Horrible Bosses 2 goes for whatever cheap, vulgar gags it can collide into. Most unfortunate is the sex-crazed debasement of Aniston, who lights up the movie but suffers some of its lowest jokes. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Nov 25, 2014
2.5/4 82% The Homesman (2014) "The melancholic balance isn't always quite right and the momentum wanes when it should be gaining. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Nov 19, 2014
2.5/4 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) ""Big Hero 6" is a fine blend of sweetness and spectacle, East and West. The meeting of Disney and Marvel sensibilities, though, is a more mixed union. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Nov 6, 2014
3.5/4 71% Interstellar (2014) "Whereas most science fiction withers out in space, "Interstellar" rockets home. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Oct 30, 2014
3/4 68% Laggies (2014) "Man-child movies have long been commonplace for members of the opposite sex, so "Laggies," penned by Andrea Seigel, is a welcome twist, one with more than a little in common with "Bridesmaids." " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Oct 30, 2014
2/4 47% The Judge (2014) "If "The Judge" proves anything, it's that talented, likable actors like Downey, Duvall, D'Onofrio and Farmiga can keep a mediocre movie humming. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Oct 8, 2014
2/4 31% Men, Women & Children (2014) "The plotline, just like the rest of the movie (written by Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson), veers toward the extreme, hammering home the film's heavy histrionics. " ‐ Associated Press
