Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 87% Annihilation (2018) Annihilation maintains a persistent sense of tension that keeps things compelling and will leave you wondering if you need to see it again (or just go read the source material) to make sure you understood what you just saw.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 81% Game Night (2018) Even though it has some really great funny moments, Game Night struggles to produce a successful whole.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 23% Samson (2018) The result is a film that tries hard but feels like a casual shrug of the shoulders.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 90% The Insult (L'insulte) (2018) The Insult does a nice job of touching on issues such as hate crimes and free speech without trying to push the audience too hard on one side or another.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

86% Knife Skills (2017) As good as the other documentary shorts are, Knife Skills may be the highlight - it's easily the most unique. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

100% Heroin(e) (2017) Sheldon's film is a showcase of noble women who have truly lost themselves in the service of others.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

83% Edith+Eddie (2017) [This] film is probably the most heartbreaking of the bunch.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

100% Heaven Is a Traffic Jam On the 405 (2016) This thoughtful documentary from Frank Stiefel profiles a middle-aged woman named Mindy Alper, who has used her artwork to cope with her mental illness.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
3/4 97% Black Panther (2018) As a formal showcase for the Black Panther, Coogler's film should keep diehard Marvel fans happy.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) Fortunately, once things jump ahead, we see Spencer and Alek make their way into the military (now played by themselves) and things get progressively better.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

100% Revolting Rhymes (2016) The effort isn't quite as good or memorable as some of the shorter competitors, but it should be a lot of fun for anyone familiar with the source material.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
100% Negative Space (2017) Stop-motion never ceases to look fantastic, and Negative Space is no exception.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

71% Lou (2017) Dave Mullins' story of a ragtag collection of lost and found items coming to life to teach a lesson to a playground bully is creative, sweet and a tight narrative gem. Definitely one of the best of the bunch [of the festival animated shorts].‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

100% Garden Party (2017) It's very interesting visually, even if the brief story's dark conclusion feels a little too anticlimactic.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
86% Dear Basketball (2017) Framed as a letter to the sport he loves - and narrated by Bryant himself - it features some creative chalk-style animation that is fun to look at, but to be honest, your final verdict may have more to do with whether you're a Lakers fan.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
100% Watu Wote (All of Us) (2017) The event, which according to the film took place only a few years ago, offers a unique perspective on current events.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
100% The Silent Child (2017) The Silent Child doesn't build its tension from the threat of violence, like many of the other nominees, but in some ways, it's even more difficult to watch.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
100% The Eleven O'Clock (2016) The sharp performances from Josh Lawson and Damon Herriman create a "Who's on First?"-style romp.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
100% My Nephew Emmett (2017) Wilson's film is beautifully shot, melancholy and foreboding, and more terrifying for what you know is coming rather than what you are seeing.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
88% DeKalb Elementary (2017) Even though the film is remarkably restrained in terms of content, its impact is staggering.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
2/4 14% Winchester (2018) Winchester will make you jump, but it won't really scare you, and even the presence of Dame Helen Mirren isn't enough to save its clumsy story from running out of ammunition before the final reel.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
3.5/4 100% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Morgan Neville's documentary is everything you'd want from a profile on the man behind the longtime PBS television program Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. It's insightful, charming, thoughtful and compelling.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
2.5/4 43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) The sum total should be entertaining for longtime fans of the series, but a little more time on the story and in the editing room might have made Maze Runner: The Death Cure a more worthy finale.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
2.5/4 75% Damsel (2018) The setup is great, but the finish just feels too empty.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
2.5/4 No Score Yet Quiet Heroes (2017) That Ries is a quiet hero worthy of the documentary's attention is apparent throughout the film, but the story of Utah's AIDS crisis would be better served with a fuller treatment.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
3/4 73% Hostiles (2018) Thankfully, Cooper affords the audience enough room to think about the story without forcing the outcome.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
3/4 54% 12 Strong (2018) 12 Strong may not rank with the most memorable war films of all time, but it works hard to entertain, and features just enough substance to merit some thought on its subject.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
2/4 21% Forever My Girl (2018) The execution just kills Forever My Girl. Wolf's film wants to be ponderous and thoughtful, but too often drags and just feels mopey. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
3/4 100% Paddington 2 (2018) It's that extra dose of creativity that elevates Paddington 2 from the status of routine sequel to the kind of film parents will find worth packing up the kids for, even when the weather outside is still frightful.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2018
3.5/4 88% The Post (2018) The Post stands as a tribute to Spielberg's skill as a storyteller, imbuing his backroom story with generous suspense and tension without needing the spectacular action scenes of so many of his celebrated past films.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
3/4 33% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) For a horror release in January, Last Key packs enough fun and scary moments - keep an eye out for the suitcase sequence - to keep audiences engaged. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2018
3/4 89% I, Tonya (2018) I, Tonya's transparent use of those "wildly contradictory" interviews from the leads - recreated throughout the film to provide context and narration - also provides an interesting ambiguity to its "based on a true story" status. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2018
2/4 32% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) It's good for nostalgia and a sense of closure, but it isn't much of a movie.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
2.5/4 51% Downsizing (2017) With a little more focus, Downsizing might feel like a more satisfying film. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
3/4 86% Darkest Hour (2017) Darkest Hour takes a while to get going, but once the pieces are in place and Churchill gets down to business, Wright's film picks up a great deal of momentum.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
3.5/4 82% Molly's Game (2018) As a story, Molly's Game is absorbing and well told, even when Sorkin gets into the complex minutiae of poker strategy.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
3/4 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) This avatar dynamic contributes to making "Welcome to the Jungle" one of the more enjoyable action films of recent memory. All four leads are strong, and it's fun to watch them riffing on their usual MOs‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
2.5/4 55% The Greatest Showman (2017) It's good enough to make for an entertaining musical, and it's trying very hard to sell a powerful message, but for all its merits, "The Greatest Showman's" different pieces don't fit together quite so well.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
2.5/4 30% Wonder Wheel (2017) The characters aren't interesting enough, the performances feel a little too stiff, the spectre of Allen's better films - such as 2013's Blue Jasmine - keep reminding you that this effort just isn't at the same level.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2017
3.5/4 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Bottom line: "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" may not be the best installment in the now 40-year-old franchise, but it packs enough action and surprises to keep fans happy through the Christmas season and beyond.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
3/4 100% Aida's Secrets (2017) In that sense, "Aida's Secrets" carries a feeling of suspense that few documentaries achieve. The film's style is straightforward and intimate, eschewing fancy technique to focus on the gravity of its subject.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
3/4 85% The Fencer (Miekkailija) (2017) [Klaus] Härö's effort is very low-key, matching its quiet, contemplative atmosphere to desaturated, cold-toned visuals.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
2.5/4 No Score Yet Indivisible (2017) Frankly, "Indivisible" is just too weird to recommend to a wide audience, but De Angelis would probably consider his film a failure if that weren't the case.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
3.5/4 94% The Breadwinner (2017) Nora Twomey's "The Breadwinner" is a creative and critical piece of animation. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
60% The Saratov Approach (2013) The final result is suspenseful, faith-promoting and very entertaining.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
96% Gravity (2013) Gravity should be getting award consideration in several categories. Its spectacular cinematography creates a powerful juxtaposition between the sublime beauty of the cosmos and its powerful isolation. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
90% Frozen (2013) It's hard to say whether the world of Frozen will compare with Disney's other long-celebrated fairy tales as the years roll on, but for this season, parents and children will probably be happy to add the new film to their resumes.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) For all its faults, Anchorman 2 manages to hit its funny mark.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
94% All Is Lost (2013) Its lack of detail and substance might be aggravating to some viewers, but the blank palette puts you in a position to run free with your own interpretation, and I have a tough time believing that wasn't director J.C. Chandor's intention all along.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) Overall, The Dark World offers plenty of fun for longtime fans and for newcomers, though the final product will still keep the Thor franchise inbetween Iron Man and Captain America in terms of total quality. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
