T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 93% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) This departure from reality and the embrace of the artistic expression make the debut of Valkyrie all the sweeter. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4/5 96% The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson (2017) A searing look at how American society treats the civil rights leaders who put their bodies and their freedom on the line for the greater good, this film stirs a fire for action. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

2/5 4% Flatliners (2017) A large part of the film's problem is it's trying to be a horror film which it is decidedly not. In a world where America has remade ground-breaking horror films from South Korea and Sweden, there isn't much that audiences haven't seen. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3.5/5 84% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Special cameos, bright space explosions, a kick-ass soundtrack and Chris Pratt's abs make Guardians of the Galaxy a film worth exploring. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

2.5/5 50% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Overall the film will be a big hit with the ten and under crowd. The thirty minutes of training montages and robotics are just exciting enough to detract from the weak storyline. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

92% Southside With You (2016) The film focuses on real, obtainable love. It's the kind of love that inspires you to be better. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

7/10 95% The Jungle Book (2016) This is really the pitfall of The Jungle Book. It's beautiful, adequately performed, but I've seen this film already. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

83% Sausage Party (2016) Fans of American animation and lowbrow humor are in for a real treat. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Captain America: Civil War is without a doubt my new favorite superhero movie. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4.5/5 84% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) This story isn't going to be like any Star Wars movie you've ever seen. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4.5/5 74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) A turn against the cantankerous adventure movies being shoved down consumers throats, Rowling and Yates choose instead to prominently display tempered heroes. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4/5 96% Moana (2016) Actress Auli'i Cravalho, in her first job ever, soars as the voice of Moana - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4/5 83% Divines (2016) Divines weaves together first love, religious identity, youth poverty, and then pure rage into a haunting story. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

6/10 89% Doctor Strange (2016) For a film that has promised diversity and wanting to move from harmful Asian stereotypes, this movie fails to bring in people of color in a meaningful way. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT
