Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/4 67% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Sandberg does nothing to update his horror film from some of the genre's more damaging stereotypes.‐ Globe and Mail

4/4 88% Girls Trip (2017) There is no raunchier, more raucous, filthy and truly crass movie out this summer than Girls Trip - and I loved every minute of it.‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 79% The Beguiled (2017) The Beguiled is Coppola's bloodiest, most visceral movie to date, and it is also one of her best.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 44% The Bad Batch (2017) It's a trippy, sun-scorched apocalyptic horror film with a rom-com finish that gets as bloody, visceral and cannibalistic as its U.S. R rating will allow.‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 44% Everything, Everything (2017) Engrossing and not too sugar-sweet, Meghie's movie is slightly paranoid, surprisingly fantastical and superb at translating the overwhelming stupor of first love with big, bold shots and a banging soundtrack.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 25% Unforgettable (2017) Here, the dizzying pairing of slice-and-splatter violence with the quiet horror of abusive relationships doesn't add up - it's used, unforgivably, as a gimmick.‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 91% Obit (2017) Documentarian Vanessa Gould leads her viewer by the hand through the day in a life of the darling weirdos at The New York Times obituary desk.‐ Globe and Mail

1/4 35% The Last Word (2017) I hope that in the name of her decades-spanning career and six Academy Award nominations (plus one win), we might do MacLaine the small courtesy of forgetting that this pedestrian and dull comedy ever happened.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 44% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) All the one-line zingers in the world can't save Return of Xander Cage from its own moral confusion.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 33% Mostly Sunny (2016) Mehta takes his audience behind the curtain of Leone's strategic brand-building - from commercials, to private events, to film sets - yet rarely ever delves deeper than the veneer of her glossy celebrity.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 64% Antibirth (2016) Lovers of horror will likely be into this fertile homage and will appreciate Perez's new takes on horror's tried-and-true tropes and plot twists.‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 80% Jean of the Joneses (2016) Takes its cues from both Woody Allen's self-indulgent worlds and the literary panache of Zadie Smith, but remains original in its darkly funny perspective ...‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
1.5/4 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) This story of the spies next door is wooden and slow-paced with enough intrigue to lull a toddler to sleep.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) I'd like to raise a glass of Chardonnay and toast Bridget Jones's Baby on its (mostly) hilarious, and long-anticipated, homecoming.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 58% Bad Moms (2016) Although all these actors prove the shrewd casting choices of Bad Moms, it is Hahn who makes this unassuming summer blockbuster something close to stellar.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
1/4 57% Me Before You (2016) This film cost $20-million to make and, at its heart, is a glossy, live-action Beauty and the Beast, with a quadriplegic in the role of non-human animal.‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 90% The Clan (El Clan) (2016) Even if your knowledge of Argentina's political history is wanting, The Clan is still worth seeing.‐ Globe and Mail

1/4 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) The movie desperately wants a sleek and goth-inspired aesthetic in the spirit of Rick Owens. What it ends up with is more of an unfortunate Anne Klein-meets-The Jetsons reality.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 81% Chi-Raq (2015) Lee's film is worth seeing for its bombastic excess and camo-clad dance scenes. But if you're looking for tactful visual responses to the Black Lives Matter movement and the effects of police brutality, this isn't it.‐ Globe and Mail

4/4 97% Cemetery of Splendor (2016) An enchanting interpretation of where our sleeping and waking minds wander.‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 91% James White (2015) With an intimacy caught in tight close-ups, Abbott and Nixon hold the pared-down script and each other gently. Like grief itself, this film might knock the wind right out of you.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) This revenge plot animates Mockingjay Part 2 with a satisfying rage.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 73% Suffragette (2015) Mulligan's performance, coupled with a solid script by Abi Morgan, shows us just how much is at stake when a woman decides to wage war.‐ Globe and Mail

1.5/4 19% Jem and the Holograms (2015) There's hardly tension, barely any drama and the sugar high you might expect from an eighties redux is replaced by a dull aspartame buzz.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2015
1.5/4 15% The Transporter Refueled (2015) In these 96 minutes of stilted dialogue and a plot that needlessly loops back on itself, you will find The Transporter Refueled dutifully following the rules and predictabilities of the action genre and not much else.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2015
3/4 79% Z For Zachariah (2015) The drama brims with religious allusion and questions of how faith manifests in a world without hope.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2015
2/4 45% No Escape (2015) Whatever seeds of social justice and emotional nuance No Escape may be attempting to sow are undercut by the film's melodramatic valorization of family values.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2015
3.5/4 80% The Overnight (2015) In its best moments, The Overnight deviates from the conventions of a party movie (or "sex comedy," as it has been christened) and veers toward the experimental, the uncanny, the unsettling.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 49% San Andreas (2015) San Andreas lacks backbone. Between its steroidic CGI and emotionally vacant plot line, the movie is all flex, no muscle.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 93% I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) Endearing from start to finish is Blythe Danner in the role of Carol.‐ National Post

3/4 No Score Yet Wet Bum (2014) Lanky, wide-eyed, and impossibly fragile, [Julia Sarah Stone] doesn't much look like a hero, which is exactly why we need her.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted May 14, 2015
2.5/4 56% The Age of Adaline (2015) Adaline's secret is a dramatization of the vulnerability we all resist, and so her love story isn't so much cosmic in its significance as it is miraculous in its familiarity.‐ National Post
