Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Hidden Figures is a crowd-pleaser in the purest sense - it's a charming, heartwarming and inspirational tale that skillfully combines light-hearted comedy with racially-charged drama. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 5, 2017
3/5 31% Passengers (2016) Passengers is far from perfect ... [but] it's ultimately held together by some imaginative worldbuilding and the chemistry of its two leads. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/5 79% Patriots Day (2017) Patriots Day could do with a bit more subtlety at times, but it's a well-made if somewhat slight memorial to the victims and their families that embodies the Boston Strong spirit. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 20, 2016
4/5 93% La La Land (2016) For a movie about chasing your dreams in a town known for crushing them, La La Land is surprisingly optimistic up until its bittersweet end. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 7, 2016
4/5 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) Manchester by the Sea will almost certainly go down as the most devastating, heart-wrenching drama of 2016. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 22, 2016
2.5/5 54% Rules Don't Apply (2016) Rules Don't Apply is a clumsy and tonally uneven period piece... that suggests Beatty should have stuck to retirement. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 22, 2016
4/5 72% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Like the crime novel at the center of the story, it demonstrates the power that a great piece of fiction can have on you, even one as polarizing and challenging as this. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 17, 2016
3.5/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) Doctor Strange never strays too far from the tried-and-true Marvel formula, but it's not afraid to get a little weird either. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 3, 2016
3.5/5 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Hacksaw Ridge isn't as great as some of Gibson's past work, but it's a well-made drama that's bolstered by a superb central performance and the best battle sequences since Saving Private Ryan. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 3, 2016
3/5 98% Moonlight (2016) An important and affecting piece of LGBT cinema that comes at a time when the world (and especially this nation) needs more stories like it. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 20, 2016
2.5/5 51% The Accountant (2016) This could have been the most original and emotionally engaging action movie since The Bourne Identity, but it doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 13, 2016
3/5 83% Deepwater Horizon (2016) It works just fine as a dramatic reenactment of corporate greed gone horribly wrong, but unlike the real-life incident, it will quickly be forgotten. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) It's not exactly magnificent, but it's a slick and entertaining take on a familiar tale that's bursting with personality. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 22, 2016
3.5/5 85% Sully (2016) For as conventional and safe as Eastwood plays the human drama ... the movie's gripping reenactment of the crash is a wonderfully staged piece of filmmaking that makes it all worth it. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 8, 2016
2.5/5 45% Hands of Stone (2016) Hands of Stone is your typical rise-and-fall redemption story, so aggressively mediocre that Jakubowicz would have been better off taking some risks and failing than to settle for this. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 25, 2016
3/5 60% War Dogs (2016) Although it works just fine as a piece of late-summer entertainment, for a movie called War Dogs, it's all bark and no bite. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
4/5 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Kubo and the Two Strings is more than just a return to form for the studio; it's their funniest and finest movie to date - an absolutely delightful fairy tale that will likely go down as one of the year's best. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 18, 2016
2.5/5 86% Pete's Dragon (2016) While Lowery's soulful, more character-driven adaptation is a refreshing change of pace from the typical summer film, it never really goes anywhere. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 11, 2016
2.5/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) There's a lot to like about the basic setup, but it's too often hindered by the film's many flaws and surprising conventionality. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 4, 2016
2/5 59% Bad Moms (2016) Bad Moms is an R-rated raunch-com that's surprisingly short on both raunch and comedy. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/5 99% Don't Think Twice (2016) Don't Think Twice continues Birbiglia's impressive form with a funny and poignant alternative from the typical studio comedy. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 28, 2016
2.5/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) The film isn't without its charms ... but it's never allowed to completely be its own thing. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) The Legend of Tarzan (R) is as soulless as the registered trademark symbol that appears on the opening title card. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2.5/5 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) It's not necessarily a good film, but what Election Year lacks in quality it makes up for with a deft understanding of its audience. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 30, 2016
3/5 97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) A delightful little movie that ranks as one of the more pleasant surprises of the year thus far. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 23, 2016
2/5 28% Warcraft (2016) Any hope that Warcraft would be the first great video game adaptation is promptly squashed within the opening 30 minutes, and it only gets worse from there. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 9, 2016
2.5/5 38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) The sequel still isn't as good as the series is capable of delivering, but it's a mildly entertaining diversion that shows signs of improvement. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 2, 2016
3/5 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Not every joke lands ... but Popstar does just enough to keep you entertained with its cavalcade of musician cameos and a great lead performance by Samberg. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 2, 2016
4/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) Although it hits all of the usual beats of a Shane Black feature, The Nice Guys does so with such remarkable efficiency, brimming with witty banter, solid action and even a little heart, that it feels totally fresh. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 19, 2016
2.5/5 90% The Lobster (2016) While it starts out as a sharp satire on the horrors of dating, The Lobster stretches so far into absurdity that its various eccentricities overshadow the point it's trying to make. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 76% Keanu (2016) An enjoyable and often hilarious action-comedy that serves as the perfect showcase for Key and Peele's excellent onscreen chemistry. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 28, 2016
2/5 61% High-Rise (2016) [The film] isn't unlike the titular building itself: it looks great on the surface, but the deeper you dig, the more problems you uncover. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 28, 2016
2/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) There's so much talent on display here that it's sad to see it wasted on this nonsense. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3.5/5 86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) A really enjoyable period comedy that perfectly captures small-town college life through Linklater's nostalgia-tinted glasses. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 14, 2016
2/5 49% Hardcore Henry (2016) Hardcore Henry is definitely hardcore - an adrenaline-fueled, ultra-violent, one-of-a-kind experience that stands as the closest thing to a live-action video game that you'll ever see. Too bad it's not any good. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3/5 52% Demolition (2016) Though it's a refreshingly honest look at coming to terms with the death of a loved one, without Gyllenhaal in the lead role, Demolition wouldn't be nearly as memorable. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 7, 2016
2.5/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Though it's scary to think that Warner Bros. is betting the future of its entire DC Comics film slate on this highly-anticipated clash of superhero icons, the real loser is the audience itself. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 24, 2016
3.5/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) First-time director Dan Trachtenberg wisely plays things close to his chest, slowly revealing character motivations and shocking plot turns as the movie effortlessly skips from one genre to the next. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 10, 2016
2.5/5 25% London Has Fallen (2016) London Has Fallen has its charms, [but] this lean, mean POTUS-in-peril action thriller is ultimately hindered by its reluctance to fully embrace its own stupidity. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 3, 2016
1.5/5 16% Gods Of Egypt (2016) Credit to Proyas for attempting something this ambitious, but it doesn't make the effects-heavy fantasy flick any less of a turkey. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 25, 2016
3/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) A slight but entertaining crowd-pleaser that doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel, but reminds you why it has worked this well for so long. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 24, 2016
3.5/5 84% Deadpool (2016) Deadpool stretches beyond sheer fan service to deliver a unique take on [superhero movies] that audiences unfamiliar with the character will enjoy as well. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 8, 2016
2.5/5 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Despite the addition of 'zombies' to the title, the film works better as an adaptation of Pride and Prejudice than the action comedy it strives to be. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 4, 2016
2/5 10% Dirty Grandpa (2016) The film progressively gets worse the lower it sinks, and yet despite its indefensible badness, Dirty Grandpa is still marginally entertaining, if only because De Niro makes it so. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) 13 Hours is an exhilarating and surprisingly apolitical military thriller that reconfirms why Bay is one of the best action directors in the business. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 14, 2016
2/5 9% Point Break (2015) [Ericson] Core's remake is sorely missing the original's B-movie charm and bromantic chemistry between its leading men. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 25, 2015
4/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) While it doesn't exactly earn its three-hour runtime, this Agatha Christie-styled whodunit is a lot of fun thanks to a smartly crafted script and riotous performances from its ensemble cast. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 22, 2015
2/5 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) In the Heart of the Sea is an instantly forgettable movie that completely wastes the talents of Howard and his cast. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3.5/5 88% The Big Short (2015) The Big Short isn't quite as hard-hitting as J.C. Chandor's Margin Call, but it's a nonetheless effective examination of a nationwide disaster so ridiculous that it's difficult not to laugh. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3.5/5 95% Creed (2015) Coogler has created an energizing addition to the Rocky series that doesn't just succeed as a respectful passing of the torch, but as one of the best Rocky movies ever made. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
