Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
86% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) [It] is ultimately a sympathetic and tender portrayal of adolescents struggling to be "normal" at the expense of their mental health. One of the film's greatest assets, however, is that it avoids easy villains. ‐ National Post

90% Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood (2018) The film includes salacious stories, but it never feels exploitative. This is partly because it reveals the loneliness of the world Bowers inhabited.‐ National Post

100% McQueen (2018) Whether you are intimately familiar with the designer's work or getting a first introduction, the directors bring to life the raw excitement of his clothes and the shows he put on to promote them.‐ National Post

92% Nightmare Cinema (2018) This is not necessarily any better or worse than your average anthology film but such a high calibre of talent does make that conclusion especially frustrating. Still, for horror fans there will be at least one gem here to make the journey worthwhile.‐ SciFiNow

80% Bleach (2018) While clearly made for a dedicated fanbase, unlike some more recent anime live-action adaptations, one of the greatest assets of Bleach is how cohesively it outlines its mythology for the uninitiated.‐ SciFiNow

57% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) While Unfriended: Dark Web might not be as good as the first film, it is still worth recommending as a potential step forward into a new realm of cinematic language.‐ SciFiNow

17% Show Dogs (2018) Mix... genital obsession with bad CGI, unrelenting references to Lego Batman, and a general sense of malaise, and you have a pretty complete picture of what Show Dogs has to offer. ‐ National Post

38% Life of the Party (2018) It aims for the middle and hits it, which should not be an achievement, but in the dire landscape of middling studio comedies, it unquestionably does better than most.‐ National Post

14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) The filmmakers ultimately fail to embrace the horror implications of truth-telling in a world where we all have reality-altering devices in our pockets.‐ National Post

3/4 75% Gemini (2018) There is no doubt that the film is more than just a monochromatic Pinterest mood board. And yet, it doesn't really push things to the next level, either.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/5 No Score Yet Iqaluit (2016) ... an illuminating and challenging experience for audiences.‐ Montreal Gazette

80% Antiporno (Anchiporuno) (2017) Saturated and abstract, Sono seems to be the perfect filter for the revived Roman Porno house. ‐ Little White Lies

1.5/4 71% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) In spite of some compelling performances and a consistent mood, the film fails to ground any of these aesthetic flourishes in story or emotion.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 50% Boris Without Beatrice (Boris Sans Béatrice) (2016) Boris sans Béatrice challenges rather than caters to audience preconceptions - for better and for worse.‐ Globe and Mail
