Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C- 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Bringing the action of future Dark Tower novels forward isn't a sin. The sin is not having nearly enough space for it. The film is breathless in all the worst ways as a result.‐ Consequence of Sound

A 74% Holy Hell (2016) Never before has a cult documentary contained so much footage of its inner workings‐ Consequence of Sound

B+ 77% Goat (2016) Goat deals with masculinity, fraternities, and PTSD in equal doses, covering all of them with brutal precision and most importantly, success.‐ Consequence of Sound

B- 92% First Girl I Loved (2016) What writer and director Kerem Sanga captures so well in First Girl I Loved is high school. What he captures even better is falling in love, or the naïve idea of what it means to be in love as a teenager.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 79% Joshy (2016) Baena's crime is that he tries to make it a dramedy at the last minute and doesn't come close to earning it. It's a shame, because while the comedy beats are familiar, the uber-talented cast of Joshy give them a new vibe.‐ Consequence of Sound

B 70% Swiss Army Man (2016) Frenzied, kinetic filmmaking is hit or miss, but The Daniels are showcasing their talents as opposed to showing off.‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) The Birth of a Nation is one of the most confident writing and directorial debuts in recent memory.‐ Consequence of Sound

B- 88% Christine (2016) What Christine gets right above all else is that it comes at depression from a different angle. Director Antonio Campos evades drone and downpours in favor of '70s soft rock and bright skies. ‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 75% The Eyes of My Mother (2016) The Eyes of My Mother is a beautiful nightmare from start to finish‐ Consequence of Sound

B 63% The Greasy Strangler (2016) Original thought is in short supply these days. The Greasy Strangler is not.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 50% The Free World (2016) The Free World works when dealing with the themes found within its title. When we have our freedoms taken away, how difficult is it to get them back. Is it wholly possible? Somewhere along the way, Lew decided such a story wasn't compelling enough. ‐ Consequence of Sound

C+ 87% Other People (2016) Other People is an okay movie that could have been better with a little more focus. Come for the performances, but understand that you're just staying for the performances. Oh, and Train's "Drops of Jupiter". Never better.‐ Consequence of Sound

B+ 74% The Hateful Eight (2015) The Hateful Eight is a big, mean movie in a small, isolated setting hidden among a beautiful, beautiful world. ‐ Consequence of Sound

D+ 60% Concussion (2015) Concussion aims to be Brian's Song and ends up The Waterboy.‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 95% Creed (2015) Ryan Coogler accomplished what would have seemed impossible 40 years ago: He got the audience to chant "Creed!" in a Rocky movie.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 63% Spectre (2015) Early on, Spectre promises to be one of the best Bonds - a reminder that nobody does it better. In the end, it just looks like everything else.‐ Consequence of Sound

D 35% The Green Inferno (2015) When directed away from the pain and admittedly effective use of violence, The Green Inferno turns into an unintentional laugh riot. U.S. policy and Eli Roth do not mix.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
B+ 96% The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?) (2015) The Second Mother manages to remain funny throughout its depictions of class, struggle, and motherhood - stories mostly told to death in dramatic fashion. ‐ Consequence of Sound

B- 80% The Mend (2015) John Magary's The Mend is a showcase for Josh Lucas, who proves that he's always been a leading man; it's just that Hollywood gave up on him‐ Consequence of Sound

B 99% Starred Up (2014) A great ripple effect is felt throughout David Mackenzie's Starred Up, a gritty British prison drama that puts most gritty prison dramas to shame.‐ Consequence of Sound

F 28% Machete Kills (2013) Everything looks artificial and achieved in post-production. Every shortcut is met to save money on budget and time.‐ Consequence of Sound

B 86% The Trip To Italy (2014) It's 'second verse, same as the first.' Thank God.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2015
B 86% Night Moves (2014) The film serves as a reminder that our greatest fear isn't necessarily getting caught in the act; it's getting caught down the line.‐ Consequence of Sound

A 95% Snowpiercer (2014) Bong's Snowpiercer rebels against the norms of summer blockbusters -- overthrowing them all.‐ Consequence of Sound

D- 35% The November Man (2014) The only purpose for its existence is potentially giving film students an interesting study in overcompensation.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2015
C- 26% As Above, So Below (2014) As Above, So Below is a film that gets in its own way as much as dead ends block the paths of its characters.‐ Consequence of Sound

D 35% Knock Knock (2015) Knock Knock deserves to be knocked out.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2015
B 83% Hello, My Name is Doris (2016) Michael Showalter's Hello, My Name Is Doris is a showcase for Field, reminding us that her comedic chops are just as impactful as her flair for the dramatic.‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 92% Queen of Earth (2015) Queen of Earth is an unnerving, intense experience, but you can't turn away from Elisabeth Moss. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2015
B 77% People Places Things (2015) People, Places, Things manages to find a pocket within the genre that is light, hopeful, and likeable sans characters transforming into shrews or unredeemable jerks. It's good, and that's just fine.‐ Consequence of Sound

B+ 78% Tom at the Farm (2015) Tom at the Farm's unwillingness to give us all the answers sets it apart from wannabe psychodramas.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2015
B+ 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is the best action movie to hit theaters since Mad Max Rockatansky answered our cries back in May, making it the best action movie this summer by far.‐ Consequence of Sound

C- 26% Vacation (2015) The new Vacation isn't a trip worth taking. If you thought I could have ended this review with any other sentence, I'm not sure what you were reading.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2015
C+ 85% Alleluia (2015) Fortunately, thanks to a strong final act and direction that answers the question, "What if Bertolucci directed a Grindhouse flick?", there is entertainment to be found in Alléluia. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2015
91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) James Gunn's first foray into big-budget movie making succeeds despite focusing on characters largely unknown to mainstream audiences and provides some of the most genuinely affecting moments of any Marvel film to date.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2015
B+ 88% The Tribe (2015) The Tribe is just as brutal in its depiction of casual depravity as it is in its bursts of extreme violence. If you can make it past the final five minutes without wincing, more power to you.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2015
D 17% Wild Horses (2015) There isn't even anything wrong with this being a bad movie; it's just too bad that it is.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2015
A 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Not only has George Miller made an effective return to the wasteland of the Mad Max universe with Fury Road, he has surpassed most action films released ... well ... ever.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 13, 2015
D 86% Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh, Ich seh) (2015) Goodnight Mommy runs out of potential thrills an hour in before turning into Hostel Part IV.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 3, 2015
C- 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Joss Whedon sets up the future of the Avengers for the Russo Brothers, but this is no longer exciting. It's exhausting.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2015
C 92% Ex Machina (2015) Alex Garland has written some of the best science fiction films of this century, so it's startling to see him succeed more as a director than as a writer here.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2015
D 26% Child 44 (2015) Like The Interview, Child 44 will be remembered only for the controversy surrounding it. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2015
B- 77% Danny Collins (2015) Danny Collins is slightly slight, but it's so competent and sure of itself that it's impossible to dislike. We have entered a new era of Al Pacino.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2015
D+ 95% We Are Still Here (2015) We Are Still Here is more or less a 90-minute tribute to the superior haunted house features that came before. Great poster, though.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2015
C+ 67% Unexpected (2015) While Unexpected may be too sunny for its own good at times, its sincerity always shines through.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2015
D 32% Chappie (2015) There is nothing original and interesting about Chappie. It's a hodgepodge of better science-fiction films from yesteryear whose films have been imitated countless times to no avail.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2015
C 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Director Matthew Vaughn's latest film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, is an attempt at finding a balance somewhere between Austin Powers and James Bond that doesn't quite succeed.‐ Consequence of Sound
