T-Meter Title | Year
7/10 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) This is probably the best Fast & Furious movie of them all. It's easily the most humorous and consistently entertaining, and it functions as more of a standalone film than anything since Tokyo Drift. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 53% The Lion King (2019) As an accessory to 1994's The Lion King, the remake is a passable excursion through what's currently possible with modern CGI, but like with all technology, this will age as poorly as the skeletons in Pirates of the Caribbean. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 63% Yesterday (2019) The plot may be nonsensical, but the heart and comedy surely isn't. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 54% Ma (2019) The casting in Ma is an elaborate prank on these wonderful actors. - The Young Folks EDIT

83% High Life (2019) For film lovers, even the ones who may find High Life to be a bizarre and pretentious slog, this is one Denis film they can't afford to miss. - The Young Folks EDIT

3/10 60% Breakthrough (2019) Anything but true to its own name. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 100% Honey Boy (2019) Undoubtedly, this is Shia LaBeouf's greatest hour, period, because he controls his story and how it's told. Har'el makes sure the vision stays coherent, of course, always guiding us along a difficult journey that looser hands may have dropped. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 39% Don't Let Go (Relive) (2019) The premise itself is a bit tired, but the time travel wizardry at least tries to bend some rules and give audiences a new prototype for films that blend newer technology with established movie magic. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 94% Mike Wallace Is Here (2019) It's worth the effort to go back and research whatever you may have missed, but this is certainly a drawback for what is otherwise a wholly brilliant documentary in both style and function. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 88% Light From Light (2019) Light from Light is not loud or energetic. It's not frightening. It's simple. It's quiet and patient. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 90% To the Stars (2019) If not for a few tonal shifts toward the end that halt the progress of these characters, To the Stars could already be one of the best films of the year. For now, it's certainly one of my favorites. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 94% The Mustang (2019) It wants the audience to wonder about the effects of rehabilitation, but also about how angry creatures of different shapes and sizes should be let out into the open, freed from either themselves or society. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 63% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) The polarizing message is just one piece of a larger, more grating experience considering the subject matter, but also one that demands to be studied and taken seriously. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 43% The Tomorrow Man (2019) There are a few lofty ideas at play in The Tomorrow Man, but they fall short of the film's true selling point: the sweetness between a couple of friends who build a romance from the ground up. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 83% Share (2019) What intrigues about Share is that it focuses on newer territory. The "I" of the assault. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) For all its reliance on sports movie clichés, Fighting with My Family still manages to be fresh and original where it truly counts, and for a lot of viewers, that's going to make this one a real knockout. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 84% The Brink (2019) The message of The Brink is clear from start to finish, and it couldn't be a more timely presentation. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 89% The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Kids will recognize a film that takes their opinions on these topics seriously, which gives the adventure even more purpose beyond the standard formula of good vs. evil. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 100% They Shall Not Grow Old (2019) For historians and professors, They Shall Not Grow Old is a documentary that will stand the test of time and prove useful as an accompaniment to a more robust course about the time period. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Though the film sticks its toe into the harsher fare of dark webs and social media apathy, it never remembers to relate this form of unpleasantness with the plight of its manic main characters. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 is just as wonderful, gorgeous, and thrilling as the first, to the point where most super fans of the original likely won't care about these flaws. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 43% When We First Met (2018) Part of the problem does lie in DeVine himself, who is relied on too heavily by the script and is present in essentially every scene. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) At this point, only a handful of hardcore fans will have good reason to run back into the maze for thirds. - The Young Folks EDIT
