Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4.7/10 36%

Blair Witch (2016)

"The most puzzling mystery of Blair Witch has absolutely nothing to do with the plot of this supposed sequel, and everything to do with why a promising director the caliber of Adam Wingard would want to be helming this film in the first place." ‐ Paste Magazine

Sharknado: The 4th Awakens (2016)

"Whatever absurd delights this series once could boast have long since been stripped of their tiny joys and ground into dust by the weight of encroaching, ceaseless, incredibly cynical commercialism." ‐ Paste Magazine

Zoolander 2 (2016)

"Zoolander 2 isn't quite a bottom barrel Hollywood comedy, but it's not far off from it, either." ‐ Paste Magazine

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

"Hail Caesar! is blandly enjoyable in spurts, based on the strength of key performances, but it wouldn't take much to make it that much better." ‐ Paste Magazine

Finders Keepers (2015)

"At times, the story seems headed toward an expected conclusion, but every time it feels like things should be wrapping up, some new hurdle arises to be overcome." ‐ Paste Magazine

The Visit (2015)

"Marketed as a straight horror film in an attempt to play on whatever Sixth Sense fondness still remains in the American public, the film is really more of a horror comedy, and a surprisingly able one." ‐ Paste Magazine

Fantastic Four (2015)

"The question one can't help but return to again and again during Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot is "Who was this supposed to appeal to?"" ‐ Paste Magazine

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)

"If Sharknado 2 was the sort of thing you legitimately enjoyed, then Sharknado 3 has simply taken the effective satirical elements of that formula and refined them even further. " ‐ Paste Magazine

Zombeavers (2015)

"The final 20-30 minutes is the film's strongest portion, however, because that's when things unexpectedly go off the rails of convention and into a delightfully weird territory." ‐ Paste Magazine

The Keeping Room (2015)

"This is a film that deserves to be seen for its visual touches and for Marling, who continues to expand her range and show why she's bound to end up with a major award on her mantle sooner rather than later." ‐ Paste Magazine

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)

"For the most part, it's a serviceable sequel that tackles a difficult task as best it can by making a film that is several levels more absurd than the first." ‐ Paste Magazine

Godzilla (2014)

"None of its flaws quite manage to kill the fun of watching Godzilla, because, for all of the poor choices made in terms of screen time, the big guy himself still manages to be an awe-inspiring character." ‐ Paste Magazine

Big Ass Spider! (2013)

"The relative lack of filler is another factor that sets Big Ass Spider! apart from other members of its ilk." ‐ Paste Magazine

Ghost Shark (2013)

"The film violates the most crucial rule of trashy filmmaking-you can be stupid, but don't be boring." ‐ Paste Magazine
