Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
55% Tag (2018) Tag is neither bad nor good, but rather, despite its out-there story, almost numbingly ordinary: an easy, breezy action-com that's sometimes amusing but rarely funny, competent rather than inspired.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Amin (2018) What felt like a graceful simplicity in Fatima too often feels like oversimplification in Amin.‐ Hollywood Reporter

53% Duck Butter (2018) Frequently silly, only fitfully involving and often surprisingly banal despite its outré premise...‐ Hollywood Reporter

88% 6 Balloons (2018) What stays with you is [Abbi] Jacobson's grippingly understated lead turn, which promises a fruitful future screen life beyond Broad City.‐ Hollywood Reporter

92% Love, Simon (2018) It's an expertly carved chunk of cheese. But taken on its own, limited terms, Love, Simon is also a charmer - warm, often funny and gently touching, tickling rather than pummeling your tear ducts.‐ Hollywood Reporter

83% Game Night (2018) There are chuckles here and there, but a striking absence of belly laughs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
100% Leave No Trace (2018) An absorbing, delicately directed and acted father-daughter drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
82% Nancy (2018) The movie's refusal to ingratiate is admirable, even if you end up wondering whether it was worth all the doom and gloom.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2018
86% The Revival (2018) But it is a worthwhile one, showcasing a pair of deeply gifted leading men and a promising new talent behind the camera.‐ Hollywood Reporter

29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) A Bad Moms Christmas is louder, busier and more pandering than the original - an exhausting spectacle of skilled performers gamely mugging their way through a cash grab.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Girl Flu. (2017) Girl Flu is a slight but distinctive coming-of-ager.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
94% The Wife (2018) Like a bomb ticking away toward detonation, Glenn Close commands the center of The Wife: still, formidable and impossible to look away from.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2017
43% A Worthy Companion (2017) A Worthy Companion gives a pulpy lesbian-obsession thriller premise the full arthouse treatment. Warning: You may miss the pulp.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
82% Brad's Status (2017) A droll and affecting male-midlife-crisis comedy.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
33% Home Again (2017) So thoroughly sanitized that it's essentially wiped of personality.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
33% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) It's quite a feat for a movie to deploy Simon & Garfunkel's "The Only Living Boy in New York" and somehow leave you cold.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2017
60% Anything (2018) A touching, tentative love story.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
72% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) A film that's made with serious craftsmanship but never takes itself seriously.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
50% Golden Years (Nos années folles) (2017) The feeling and generosity of spirit that fill the frame in the director's best offerings are conspicuously missing.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
36% Snatched (2017) A fitfully amusing, entirely disposable mother-daughter caper that's elevated a notch by its gifted central duo and capable direction from Jonathan Levine.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 10, 2017
83% Blame (2018) The film is powered by some fine acting, as well as a current of sincere feeling that helps you forgive some of its more conspicuous flaws and limitations.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2017
48% The Ticket (2017) The Ticket is underwhelming in several ways, but the performance driving it is magnetic.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2017
61% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) The movie's central figures and their experiences have been cleansed of complexity, embalmed in a sort of hagiographic glaze that makes even the pain look pretty.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
26% Table 19 (2017) Anna Kendrick has a recent track record of being decisively better than the movies she's in. Table 19, an innocuous but misguided mess written and directed by Jeffrey Blitz from a story by Mark and Jay Duplass, continues the trend.‐ Hollywood Reporter

78% The Hero (2017) Sam Elliott's smoky, whiskey-soaked baritone is one of American cinema's undervalued treasures... It pretty much rescues Brett Haley's... The Hero, cutting clean through the film's pile of clichés with its gruff feeling and wry, weary wit.‐ Hollywood Reporter

38% Why Him? (2016) Almost nothing anyone does registers as recognizably human; it's all just a pretext for yet another round of envelope-pushing outrageousness.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2016
20% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Greg Mottola has made some fine contributions to big-screen comedy - including sweet-and-salty teen flicks Adventureland and Superbad - but his new film, Keeping Up With the Joneses, is decidedly not one of them.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2016
95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Fast, full-hearted and graced with a beautifully modulated lead turn by Hailee Steinfeld, the movie takes the risk of playing it straight and sincere - and the risk pays off.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2016
93% Blue Jay (2016) Small but stirring, thanks mostly to Sarah Paulson.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
59% Strange Weather (2017) A sincere, somewhat clunky drama, delivering lots of Americana-infused atmosphere but little excitement or novelty.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2016
13% The Summoning (Planetarium) (2017) A good-looking misfire.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) The cathartic pleasures of a good old-fashioned weepie are promised and then never delivered in Derek Cianfrance's handsome but curiously lifeless The Light Between Oceans.‐ Hollywood Reporter

58% Bad Moms (2016) Hahn ... injects what could have been another insipid studio hack job with a bracing shot of personality.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
88% Looking: The Movie (2016) While Looking: The Movie isn't as astonishingly fine as Looking the series, there's enough greatness in it to make fans (we're out there!) agonize anew over the fact that, yes, this time it's over for real.‐ Hollywood Reporter

70% Central Intelligence (2016) It capitalizes on the chemistry between Hart and Johnson, who convey what seems like genuine delight in each other's company - something that gives this bromantic diversion a giddy kick.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2016
44% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) (2016) A disappointment, even for the Dolan faithful.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
6% Mother's Day (2016) A movie not even a mother could love.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2016
5% Get a Job (2016) The problem is that a movie like this - limp, lazy, generic - just doesn't cut it at a time when American indies and television offer sharp, witty, satisfyingly complex takes on the "Facebook generation."‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2016
73% Valley Of Love (2016) The dynamic between the stars feels overly familiar at first (he's the incorrigible but good-hearted boor, she's the irritable scold), but their comfortable rapport is one of the film's most potent assets.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 29, 2016
81% Lovesong (2017) A delicate heartbreaker about friendship, desire and the occasionally blurred line between the two.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2016
31% Daddy's Home (2015) Daddy's Home is a one-trick pony, and that trick - an effortlessly cool Wahlberg emasculating a beleaguered Ferrell - just isn't fresh or funny enough to sustain a 95-minute movie.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2015
19% Love the Coopers (2015) Loving the Coopers will be out of the question; leaving them will be the priority.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2015
29% Burnt (2015) Burnt may be about haute cuisine, but the movie is fast food all the way.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2015
85% The Meddler (2016) Scafaria has made a deeply personal, unquestionably sincere movie -- which, alas, isn't exactly the same as a very good one.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2015
54% The Dressmaker (2016) Little here "works" in any traditional sense of that word, but the film boasts enough manic energy and straight-up weirdness to keep you entertained before overstaying its welcome in the final act.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2015
25% Five Nights in Maine (2016) Intriguing parts, underwhelming whole.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2015
39% We Are Your Friends (2015) Your response may be directly determined by your tolerance for the music, as well as your willingness to spend time with a bunch of likeable but not very bright dudes smoking spliffs and trying to hustle up some cash.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2015
92% The Gift (2015) Joel Edgerton's feature-length directorial debut is a pleasant -- or pleasantly unpleasant -- surprise, hitting its genre marks in brisk, unfussy fashion and raising a few hairs on the back of your neck along the way.‐ Hollywood Reporter
