Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires (2018) If you're willing to just sit back and enjoy all the nods, winks and over-the-top violence, Chuck Steel is a rather fun ride, with Mort and his animation team faithfully re-creating the slick and sleazy aesthetics of bargain-bin action and horror flicks.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Treat Me Like Fire (Joueurs) (2018) It's not always credible, especially in terms of human behavior, but there's a stylized verve to the action that makes it fun to watch, while the filmmakers toss in a few good twists that pull the rug out from under you.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Taxi 5 (2018) Truly a five-car pileup of a comedy, with jokes hitting the lowest common denominator and then hitting the ground, and a director at the helm who doesn't seem to know the first thing about his craft.‐ Hollywood Reporter

67% The Quest of Alain Ducasse (La Quête d'Alain Ducasse) (2018) If Ducasse is somewhat renowned for the simplicity of his dishes, for the way he can blend a few homegrown ingredients to achieve the perfect amalgam, then de Maistre definitely lathers the man with too much sauce.‐ Hollywood Reporter
