Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) There's some humor, and there's some action, but the style feels like any other 2017 sci-fi action film.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) Fans of stop-motion animation will be pleased to know they have another gem on their hands. My Life as a Zucchini is a bit darker than your usual kids movie, but it is a wonderful thing to watch.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3.5/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Even if the new Beauty and the Beast doesn't manage to improve on the old one, it does offer a quality spectacle worth seeing.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 No Score Yet Eating You Alive (2016) People of all backgrounds can find a useful message in Kennamer's film. There's not a lot of debate about the idea that we could all use a few more vegetables in our diets and a lot less junk food.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 71% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) Perhaps it is intentional, but "The Sense of an Ending" really does leave you with only a sense of completion. It is a thoughtful film, populated by a strong, watchable cast, but its cryptic story and detached pacing will likely polarize audiences.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 96% Kedi (2017) Its story may not change one's life, but "Kedi" captures a fascinating portrait of a city and a people from an animal most would disregard.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

78% Kong: Skull Island (2017) This is a fun, fun movie. It's also a violent movie - the high enough body count and gore should convince parents to leave the kids at home - even though the violence comes in a frequently comic PG-13 CGI-style. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 21% The Shack (2017) At times The Shack is able to provoke real thought and introspection. But as a movie, it struggles with issues of structure and execution, which no doubt happened in the book-to-film transition.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 No Score Yet Tim Timmerman, Hope Of America (2017) Overall, Tim Timmerman: Hope of America is a quirky but flawed film that is headed in the right direction, just good enough to get you to look forward to the filmmaker's next effort.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 82% A United Kingdom (2017) A United Kingdom eventually settles for a modest spot on the good section of the quality spectrum.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3.5/4 19% Table 19 (2017) Table 19 is a wedding movie for people who hate weddings, and an underdog movie for anyone who has ever felt life's wrath in a social setting.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 22% Collide (2017) Collide isn't bad so much as it is a routine, but it could have been a romp.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 67% Before I Fall (2017) Anyone who has seen Bill Murray's Groundhog Day will instantly recognize its similarities to Before I Fall. That doesn't have to be a bad thing, but in this case it is.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 75% The Workers Cup (2017) It is remarkable to see people who can be so happy in the midst of miserable circumstances. That's the inspiring takeaway from The Workers Cup.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 93% Deidra & Laney Rob a Train (2017) Freeland's effort features some fun elements, a premise with potential and a pair of appealing performances from its leads. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 No Score Yet The Mars Generation (2017) Does a good job of tapping into the inherent hope of exploring outer space and providing a realistic examination of what it will require.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 No Score Yet Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities (2017) A vivid testimonial of the power of education.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 100% 78/52 (2017) A fascinating examination of a piece of masterful cinema, but it is also a sobering examination of a film that took the industry, and the culture, down a much more graphic and explicit path.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 80% Band Aid (2017) Lister-Jones's film leaves the audience feeling like the third-wheel drummer.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 69% The Discovery (2017) It's good enough to provoke thought.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 75% Where Is Kyra? (2017) The payoff just isn't there.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 17% The Space Between Us (2017) The film is never allowed to breathe. It's rushed, and it's a shame.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 83% The Founder (2017) Altogether, Hancock and Keaton have created a very well-told and well-acted film, but The Founder will leave you with a bad taste in your mouth.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 100% Step (2017) [Lipitz gives] us an intimate view of the girls' day-to-day lives and reminds us that even though her subjects have noble intentions, they are still kids and flawed human beings.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

1/4 43% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Somehow this off-brand Fast and Furious makes Vin Diesel's flagship franchise feel restrained, intelligent and believable by comparison.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 75% Split (2017) Regardless of how you feel about the ending, though, most will note a tour de force performance from McAvoy, who is often called to transition between characters on a dime and easily proves to be the highlight of the film.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 33% A Dog's Purpose (2017) While the wide-eyed dog narrator device is cute, it also creates some narrative problems. Hallström's protagonist is often along for the ride on a story that is low on conflict, even if it's high on "aw, shucks" moments.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

1.5/4 23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) The film's biggest weakness may be its namesake, essentially a guy in white makeup and a hooded coat who hangs around with a badly rendered CGI monster dog.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3.5/4 80% Patriots Day (2017) Berg's primary accomplishment is his ability to create tension and suspense in a story that everyone already knows.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 93% Hidden Figures (2017) We learn about a largely unknown venue of the civil rights movement, but we also gain a general appreciation for the Herculean task of getting the Mercury astronauts into space at all.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
3.5/4 87% A Monster Calls (2017) A Monster Calls builds to a moving finale that is much more spiritual and emotional than action-packed.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
3.5/4 93% Fences (2016) A riveting meditation on pride, family and personal weakness. It's not the kind of film you forget easily.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3.5/4 86% Lion (2016) Lion is not an easy journey, but it is a thoughtful, worthwhile and ultimately inspiring experience.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) The movie looks cool, and if you can lose yourself in the thunderous soundtrack and the various action scenes, you might be OK. But once you start trying to connect the dots, you'll probably be better off going back to the game.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 73% Sing (2016) Where the best animated features blend story, craft and wit in a way that appeals to the parents and the kids, Sing lags a step or two behind.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 31% Passengers (2016) It is a gorgeous movie to watch, but an experience that ultimately feels unsatisfying.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

4/4 93% La La Land (2016) As fun as that opening scene may be, the story that follows is what makes "La La Land" a great movie.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 12% Collateral Beauty (2016) Frankel overcooked some nice raw ingredients. The all-star cast is certainly giving their best, especially Smith...But the noble performances aren't enough to overcome the weaknesses of the story or the miscalculation of the tone.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
4/4 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) As a prequel, it brings depth and strength to the existing canon, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will probably leave fans wishing it could have spun off into a franchise of its own.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
1/4 15% Incarnate (2016) Director Brad Peyton may have wrapped up his film in the trappings of demonic possession, but inside that packaging is a watered-down "Inception" laced with a mild horror aftertaste.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2016
1.5/4 20% Believe (2016) Director Billy Dickson's Christmas movie means well, but a muddled story and some flawed writing keep "Believe" from achieving its goals.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2016
3/4 55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) As a portrait of an era that Beatty lived and worked through, Rules Don't Apply has a poetic charm, even if its final takeaway feels a bit more ambiguous.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
3/4 89% Loving (2016) Loving is a low-key movie about a low-key couple whose actions proved to be anything but.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
4/4 95% Moana (2016) One of the animation world's cinematic highlights for 2016.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
3/4 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) The Potter imagination is also on full display, mostly through the introduction of Scamander's myriad beasts, which blend familiar physical characteristics with human foibles.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
2/4 48% Almost Christmas (2016) Almost Christmas also follows that oft-tried but rarely true formula of the ensemble comedy, whereby a half-dozen storylines are crammed into a single feature film in the hopes of covering as much thematic ground as possible.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
3/4 98% Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde) (2016) Long Way North is a charming and simple feature that mines themes of family and determination in the midst of challenging trials.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 93% Harry & Snowman (2016) This darker side of the man who became known as the "Galloping Grandfather" in the 1970s lends a bitter taste to the sweetness of director Ron Davis' documentary, but it also gives it a more honest and human feel.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
3/4 94% Arrival (2016) In the realm of big screen science fiction, "Arrival" feels like a mix of 2001: A Space Odyssey with a generous dose of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
2.5/4 74% Trolls (2016) While about 60 percent of Trolls is a solid, quality production, the rest is an acquired taste that will polarize the audience, especially those on the mature end.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
