T-Meter Title | Year
3/4 59% Aladdin (2019) The studio must've rubbed the heck out of its magic lamp, because the family film has unexpectedly turned out shining, shimmering, splendid. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 52% The Sun Is Also a Star (2019) Once again, with the odds stacked against them, two extremely attractive people have fallen in love. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The plot of "John Wick 3" won't surprise you, but the movie will. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 15% The Hustle (2019) "The Hustle" slavishly hews to the script of "Scoundrels," sometimes even the way scenes are shot. It's only adjusted for technology - mobile phones, computers, Venmo - and the actresses' personalities, aka boring and klutzy. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 32% Poms (2019) "Poms" is an embarrassment. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 66% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Who would have thought that one of the most enjoyable buddy-cop movies of 2019 would star a Pokémon? - New York Post EDIT

1/4 29% UglyDolls (2019) The message of the screechy new kids' movie "UglyDolls" may appear to be "Be yourself," but the real takeaway here is "Buy our merch!" - New York Post EDIT

3/4 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) You have to hand it to the directors for their ambition in bringing together a clown car full of characters into such a well-told and compelling yarn. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 60% Breakthrough (2019) It's a harrowing tale that deserves a much better movie than this insipid junk. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2019
2/4 45% Little (2019) I only wish the "Little" laughs were bigger. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2019
0/4 16% Hellboy (2019) The race for worst movie of the year is heating up. You could even say it's hotter than hell, now that "Hellboy" has taken the lead. - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 57% Pet Sematary (2019) Doesn't get creative enough with the haunting images that were so memorable in King's book. And when making a movie out of this story, you absolutely must get creative... - New York Post EDIT

3/4 90% Shazam! (2019) We're just as invested in Billy's search for his long-lost mom as we are in his ability to jump off a skyscraper unscathed. Now that's super! - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019
3/4 47% Dumbo (2019) Those flight sequences - first suspenseful, then euphoric - take you back to the classic "Dumbo" as much as they do to classic Burton. - New York Post EDIT

1.5/4 No Score Yet Trading Paint (2019) Sure, there's potential for pleasure in an old story done right, but Travolta croaking out a Southern accent as he overplays his outbursts and emotional reconciliations doesn't qualify. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2019
1/4 54% The Beach Bum (2019) Meet Moondog - a movie character you'll want to punch in the face. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2019
3/4 54% Five Feet Apart (2019) Sprouse and Richardson make for one of the more adorable pairs in recent films. You not only want what's best for them, but believe it can actually happen. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2019
2.5/4 71% Triple Frontier (2019) There are some zippy chase scenes and shootouts, and tension throughout. But the characters - especially the lethargic Affleck - make for more of a C-Team than an A-Team. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
2/4 32% Wonder Park (2019) If "Wonder Park" were a carnival attraction, it would be the merry-go-round. The animated movie has animals, relentless positivity and the most predictable journey ever. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
1/4 28% The Aftermath (2019) The drama is a crude blend of history and pulpy romance, with maudlin performances from the two leads. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
3/4 98% 3 Faces (2019) Panahi, who defied a filmmaking ban from the Iranian government to make this, is a director always worth supporting. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2019
1.5/4 78% Captain Marvel (2019) The character, even when kicking ass, is a total bore. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2019
1/4 59% Greta (2019) Filled with "Jaws"-y surprise moments, it's less likely to elicit shivers than giggles. So does much of the dialogue. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2019
2/4 92% Giant Little Ones (2019) The sheer amount of issues shoved in here is overpowering. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2019
3/4 91% How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) The movie could easily be called "How To End Your Trilogy." - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2019
3/4 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) Plenty of family comedies include some grappling, but there's just one I can think of that boasts a piledriver. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 69% Isn't It Romantic (2019) Unlike other movies where women bang their heads, this one's got a brain. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2019
1/4 60% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) "Alita" is just pretty. And pretty horrible. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2019
45% What Men Want (2019) Shankman was free to be creative and even a tiny bit profound. But instead of smarts, we get farts. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
69% Cold Pursuit (2019) "Cold Pursuit" is an excellent film. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
69% Paradise Hills (2019) "Paradise Hills" is neither light nor dramatic, funny nor sad. It's just moody and thus aimless. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2019
63% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) "Velvet Buzzsaw" isn't for everyone. Most people already know whether or not they're into an art-world satire. But, hey, that's what Netflix is for. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
90% Blinded by the Light (2019) I guarantee it will make you feel better than any other film that comes out this year. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
100% The Farewell (2019) It's a universal, well-told story any audience will adore. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
56% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Berlinger's aim, it seems, is to cast doubt on whether or not Bundy actually murdered anybody until the very end of the movie to maintain suspense. Good luck, Joe! - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
76% Late Night (2019) It's a charming, intelligent movie with a lot of heart and, naturally, some killer jokes. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2019
86% I Am Mother (2019) While "I Am Mother" does show its cards a touch too early, it never ceases to be intriguing and tense. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2019
89% The Nightingale (2019) Vacuum-packing a nonstop supply of rapes, deaths and beatings into more than two hours is needlessly punishing, and comes at the expense of character and story - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2019
75% Untouchable (2019) A worthy first step. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2019
77% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) "The Inventor" provides an experience you can't get from the business section. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2019
3.5/4 98% Apollo 11 (2019) "Apollo 11" is foremost a tale of technology and humanity; It's more about a country that needed a figurative lift, and got it with a literal one. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2019
2.5/4 40% The Upside (2019) This feel-good dramedy falls headfirst into all its clichés. Unsurprisingly, "The Upside" is saved by Bryan Cranston - and also, surprisingly, by Kevin Hart. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2019
1.5/4 49% Escape Room (2019) It's not asking much that a thriller be scary or shocking. This one waffles between being predictable and absurd. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2019
3/4 93% Stan & Ollie (2019) Reilly and Coogan dig into this old-school style, whistling a happy tune, dancing at a saloon, peeling a hard-boiled egg. It's simple stuff, but 65 years later, it still holds up. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2018
2/4 73% On the Basis of Sex (2019) By joining the Cult of Ruth, it doesn't make the main character into the complex, compelling person she surely is. Here, Ginsburg is just an idea, a symbol - a meme. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2018
3/4 92% Bumblebee (2018) There are real emotional stakes, an appealing 1980s look and some genuinely funny jokes. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2018
1/4 69% The Mule (2018) The embarrassing drama - offensive, clunky, poorly written - sullies Eastwood's storied legacy, and makes great actors such as Bradley Cooper and Dianne Wiest come off like amateurs. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) It will be a jolly-er holiday with "Mary Poppins Returns." - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 65% Aquaman (2018) It's just H2-OK. - New York Post EDIT

1.5/4 63% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) It's a royal chore. - New York Post EDIT
