Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
91% The Night Comes For Us (2018) To call the film an orgy of violence would be hugely overstating how much sex actually happens at an orgy.‐ Decider

95% Three Identical Strangers (2018) A compelling story told by charismatic storytellers, and the odds are it will fascinate you.‐ Decider

80% Apostle (2018) You'll be on the edge of your seat for the entire second half. On the other hand, you'll want to shower afterwards.‐ Decider

99% Eighth Grade (2018) Eighth Grade is the kind of movie that makes you feel like you've stumbled onto buried treasure...‐ Decider

79% 22 July (2018) What really works about 22 July is the way it speaks to how we deal with the aftermath of events like this.‐ Decider

50% Malevolent (2018) There are a lot of good ingredients in Malevolent, from its concept to its cast. And the final 25 minutes are incredibly tense and scary. But the rest of the movie can't really hold its momentum.‐ Decider

93% Private Life (2018) It is, at its best, so warmly, recognizably human, with some great performances. It's adult indie drama done at its highest level.‐ Decider

68% Hold the Dark (2018) Stream it, but feel free to bail if it starts to try your patience.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
83% The Most Assassinated Woman in the World (La femme la plus assassinée du monde) (2018) As a murder mystery it's not quite the taut thriller you might want, but it's got style points to spare.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
85% In the Realm of the Senses (1976) In the Realm of the Senses remains one of the great erotic art films, and it retains 100% of its ability to shock and scandalize audiences today, every bit as it did in 1976.‐ Decider

64% Nappily Ever After (2018) In the end, it's Lathan's show, and she carries it strongly, playing Violet's self-doubt and perfectionism as a symptom, not the disease.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2018
84% The Land of Steady Habits (2018) It's a frustrating movie.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2018
44% Outlaw King (2018) It's a big, bloody, beautifully-filmed epic with so much more personality than I've come to expect from a movie of this genre. ‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
45% The Laws of Thermodynamics (Las Leyes de la Termodinámica) (2018) The Laws of Thermodynamics is nothing if not constantly trying to present its love story in new and interesting ways.‐ Decider

53% Book Club (2018) Book Club might be exactly what the doctor ordered for a night at home with a lot of wine and a like-minded friend or two.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
93% First Reformed (2018) It's a thrilling ride, and Ethan Hawke's performance - the best of his career and worthy of an Oscar nomination - never once lets you out of its grip.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
96% To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) Netflix's best rom-com yet.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) What is surprising about Infinity War when you watch it a second time on VOD is how much of the film endures because of the character development across the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
100% Minding the Gap (2018) This is one of the best and most affecting documentaries of the year... a tightly focused story that is both unnerving and empathetic at once.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
47% The Package (2018) There's honestly a lot of potential here, and the film is certainly watchable. But after a certain amount of time, you've well and truly gotten the joke.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
30% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) It's a real bummer.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2018
27% Breaking In (2018) Breaking In is a star vehicle that, for Union's sake if nothing else, you wish could zoom by a little faster.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
80% Flavors of Youth (Si shi qing chun) (2018) Stream it. It's sweet and pretty to look at and might make you feel happy for a change.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
86% Tully (2018) Tully is one of the best movies of the year, and here's hoping the Cody/Reitman/Theron triptych comes together far more frequently after this.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% The Bleeding Edge (2018) If a movie like this doesn't open some eyes about for-profit health care, few things will.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2018
72% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One isn't the Spielberg home run that fans of the book may have hoped it would be, but it's a solid double and a good time that is almost perversely suited for home viewing. ‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
92% Lean on Pete (2018) There are sad moments in store, but it's a story told quite beautifully...‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
56% The Warning (El aviso) (2018) A well-acted and surprisingly affecting thriller, all things considered, and a satisfying mystery, if not a shocking one.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
34% I Feel Pretty (2018) Ultimately, I feel Pretty pulls its feet out of that fire by prioritizing Renee loving herself over having enough confidence to make the world love her, and that's the film's biggest accomplishment. Well, that and Michelle Williams saying "Kohl's."‐ Decider

0% Father of the Year (2018) But don't for a second imagine that this movie was good. You have way better ways to spend your time.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2018
21% How It Ends (2018) Theo James has gotten good at playing this one kind of protagonist; he's like the exact midpoint between all of the overwhelmed-but-capable disaster movie heroes you've ever seen. ‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
95% A Quiet Place (2018) The universe of A Quiet Place doesn't stretch any farther than the Abbott family can travel on foot, which allows Krasinski to tell a taut and empathetic story about a family trying to survive together.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
83% Blockers (2018) Blockers succeeds when it's being ridiculous and funny, but it's something special when it allows teen girls and single moms and female directors who hardly ever get to participate in the fun of mainstream comedies suddenly get seated at the table.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
100% Recovery Boys (2018) It can be devastating at times, but you won't feel like it was time ill spent.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
80% Unsane (2018) The plot doesn't hold up to a ton of scrutiny? Fine. But while it's moving, it's a heck of a ride.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
No Score Yet To Each, Her Own (Les gouts et les couleurs) (2018) The comedy isn't all that funny and the romance isn't all that romantic. An admirable swing, but a miss.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2018
100% Us & Them (2018) It's heartening that this is the kind of movie that can become a huge blockbuster sensation in China. Here's hoping plenty of people find it on Netflix and are able to give it the attention it deserves.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2018
13% Brain on Fire (2018) This one falls short on pretty much every level, from the acting to the pacing to the tone. It's the kind of movie that does a billion little irritating things that add up to something worse.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
96% The Death of Stalin (2018) ...in an era where villainy does in fact seem to keep prevailing, it's satisfying to watch them stumble and scramble for our amusement, if only for a while.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
No Score Yet Maktub (2018) It's a fun idea for a movie, carried off with charm, but it never quite fully takes off from good to great. The film is well done, but it's a walk, don't run situation.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
94% Sunday's Illness (La enfermedad del domingo) (2018) It's highly worth discovering and would make for a deserving contender for Foreign Language Film at the Oscars if the cards shake out right.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2018
92% Love, Simon (2018) Love, Simon succeeds best when it's letting its teen characters - particularly these teen characters - sprawl out... The cast is full of promising young performers. ‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2018
47% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
86% Alex Strangelove (2018) Stream it. We're still waiting for The Great Gay Romantic Comedy - maybe we'll always be waiting for it - but in the meantime, this is a likeable, flirty, sweet teen comedy.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
86% Thoroughbreds (2018) "The reason that Thoroughbreds works to the extent that it does - and the reason why it's a can't miss movie even when it doesn't fully succeed - lies in the interplay between actresses Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke."‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
83% Game Night (2018) It is a likeable, funny, and fast-moving caper that delivers on pretty much all levels. It'll make for fantastic couch-watching.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
73% Last Days of Disco (1998) The Last Days of Disco is a feast for clever, loaded dialogue, delivered with zip by its fantastic cast, chief among them Chloe Sevigny and the divine Kate Beckinsale.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
88% Annihilation (2018) The visuals are astounding, and the when the story dives headlong into examinations of self and self-destruction, the movie really takes a leap.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
71% Ibiza (2018) Stream it. You'll laugh often enough that you won't feel ripped off. But you'll also likely feel a twinge of regret at the comedy these three women could have made.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted May 29, 2018
83% Patti Cake$ (2017) ...builds up to one of the most surprisingly emotional crescendos of any recent film. This one is definitely worth your time.‐ Decider
