Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C 66% Breathe (2017) A tame, vanilla whimper of a period drama begging for a better treatment in more assured hands.‐ Entertainment Weekly

D+ 37% Leap! (2017) The script is brimming with half-baked ideas, drilling far too much fluffy nonsense about achieving one's dreams into our skulls before the film crosses the 10-minute mark.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B- 36% Kidnap (2017) A sometimes pulpy, sometimes soapy B-movie ...‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 88% Maudie (2017) Plays like a pop-up version of a thoroughly written Wikipedia entry, albeit a charming one. Most of that charm resides in the effortless grace with which Hawkins - giving one of the best performances of the year - takes to the character ...‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 83% The Lovers (2017) Letts and Winger ... embody the aimlessness of their characters with pointed restraint as Michael and Mary.‐ Entertainment Weekly

C- 37% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) It's a candy-coated sugar rush, though its mind-numbing repetitiveness (and haphazardly-written screenplay) will likely test even the most patient parent.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 24% The Comedian (2017) They say misery loves company, but if the unseemly characters in Taylor Hackford's latest feature are any indication, it also breeds comedy.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
B 45% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) A rollicking shot of adrenaline that's every bit as ludicrous as the word soup posing as its title.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
C 47% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) Most of The Take's moving parts feel like spinning cogs, devoid of fit or function.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
B 93% The Eagle Huntress (2016) The movie's restrained second half stuns, ranking as one of the most magical stretches of nonfiction filmmaking in recent years.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2016
B- 93% Little Sister (2016) Short, sweet, and nowhere near as prickly as it seems on the surface, Little Sister plays best when it's not trying to coat its appealing brand of distorted realism with a punk rock sheen.‐ Entertainment Weekly

A- 93% Blue Jay (2016) Though the film largely trains on the simple, dialogue-fueled interaction of two people, it feels more spectacular than theatrical, showcasing the acting prowess of two master performers feeding on mutual chemistry and performative bravado.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 89% Miss Stevens (2016) It acknowledges that the best versions of ourselves are often written-sometimes by the hand of other people-when we're not looking, when a third-act plot twist jerks the wheel left.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
B+ 71% White Girl (2016) Easily finds its place among the cinematic canon of great dramas cut from the good-girl-gone-bad cloth.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2016
B+ 50% Complete Unknown (2016) Complete Unknown is perhaps most titillating when it quietly observes moments between its central duo, two long-lost lovers hurling nearly two decades' worth of unresolved pain at each other over the course of a single evening.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2016
B- 82% Equity (2016) If no one's listening, you must build a platform and shout, and the women behind Equity have done just that.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
B 91% Zero Days (2016) An ideal movie for Internet conspiracy theorists displeased with the powers that be, though Gibney deserves credit for doing more than just fanning the flames of paranoia.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2016
A- 91% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) If Michel Gondry could direct the formative years of actual people the way he handles the tender, fictional lives of the youngsters at the center of the adventure drama Microbe & Gasoline, the real world would be a far more compassionate place.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2016
C+ 69% Central Intelligence (2016) The hows and whys of the quest at hand aren't exactly important, as Central Intelligence is far more concerned with squeezing its leading men together-often literally-and kicking back to enjoy the juice, and that's a wise move.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2016
C- 17% Ratchet & Clank (2016) It jostles along an action-packed 94 minutes that look and feel no different from the titles upon which it's based.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 29, 2016
D- 43% Miracles from Heaven (2016) You can't endear when you're subtly insulting, and Miracles From Heaven's otherwise good intentions are lost in its confusing mix of uplifting spirituality and judgment.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2016
B+ 61% Barney Thomson (The Legend of Barney Thomson) (2016) Scottish actor Robert Carlyle makes a bold impression as a first-time director with Barney Thomson, a brash, dirty little film that's eager to please in devilish ways.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2016
B 93% Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall (2016) Of course Jackson isn't here to discuss matters for himself, and Lee's documentary is, ultimately, enjoyably nostalgic, but says little more than what we already know.‐ Entertainment Weekly

2/4 14% Zookeeper (2011) Zookeeper is a lighthearted, harmless afternoon at the movies for the hordes of families that will be drawn to it like lions to a straggling zebra. As a casual filmgoer, however, the film's shortcomings will disappoint.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3/4 69% Rubber (2011) Rubber deserves praise (and a viewing) if only for its absurd spirit alone, but the film is probably best digested when applying its self-proclaimed "no reason" logic to understanding it as a whole.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
