T-Meter Title | Year
100% Toy Story 4 (2019) The first half of the movie has a structured feel similar to the previous feature films, while the second half has the sharp action-adventure feel of the 22-minute TV specials and shorts that were produced after the release of "Toy Story 3." - Business Insider EDIT

89% Rocketman (2019) With elaborate dance numbers that have a CGI-added "All That Jazz" feel, the movie is part rags-to-riches story and part rock concert. - Business Insider EDIT

57% Aladdin (2019) The biggest problem with the "Aladdin" remake is it's all over the place. Sometimes it's a Bollywood movie; sometimes it's "Hitch 2." - Business Insider EDIT

94% Us (2019) "Us" is fast-paced, gory, and once more shows the writing talents of Peele. - Business Insider EDIT

78% Captain Marvel (2019) "Captain Marvel" is a lot of things: a buddy movie, a '90s nostalgic coming-of-age tale, a superhero origin story. This mix can be jarring at times, but it hits its stride when the movie tells a story that doesn't follow the blueprint of most MCU titles. - Business Insider EDIT

66% Vice (2018) The entire movie messes with the audience as much as it wickedly satirizes the real-life characters it's portraying. - Business Insider EDIT

29% Venom (2018) "Venom" is an entertaining comic book movie that at times is intentionally funny, while other non-funny moments miss the mark so badly that you can't help but laugh. - Business Insider EDIT

87% First Man (2018) It's not an astronaut movie in the vein of "The Right Stuff" or "Apollo 13," where the Space Race missions are the main focus... its focus is the life of Neil Armstrong, and as the movie shows, he's a man driven by a ghost from his past. - Business Insider EDIT

91% Widows (2018) It's hard to make a heist movie these days that doesn't feel like the countless others we've had thrown at us going as far back as the days of the film noir... Steve McQueen has caught lightning in a bottle. - Business Insider EDIT

82% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Michael Moore has been pushing his new documentary, "Fahrenheit 11/9," as a takedown of President Trump, in actuality the movie is a takedown of the entire political system. - Business Insider EDIT

42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) The scenes just drag on and seem to marvel at its special effects - which aren't that strong to begin with - instead of moving the story forward. - Business Insider EDIT

15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The biggest gripe I have with the movie is simply that it's way too long. It's one of the better movies in the franchise, but why Bay feels he needs over two hours to tell these stories is puzzling. - Business Insider EDIT

79% The Beguiled (2017) Coppola uses a slow-burn approach to build a thrilling chamber piece. It won't be a movie that works for all, but it shows another side of the filmmaker's capabilities that is a joy to watch. - Business Insider EDIT

48% War Machine (2017) Though the real-life events of McChrystal and his team are ripe for satire, War Machine gets too caught up in the fog of war to give its audience anything to latch onto. - Business Insider EDIT
