T-Meter Title | Year
6/10 85% Tater Tot & Patton (2019) Because it's such an earnest, grounded film, in terms of both script and performance, the casually sexist premise is impossible to avoid. - PopMatters EDIT

7/10 60% Greta (2019) Even though it may be hard to suspend disbelief, Greta is a wild ride and an example of a modern-day thriller that not only allows its characters to use their cell phones, but dramatizes how a cell phone can be used as a tool to terrorize someone. - PopMatters EDIT

8/10 61% Vox Lux (2018) It's a challenging, unpleasant, slow burn of a movie that's going to be a hard sell in the wake of A Star is Born, but it's offering something completely different, and something worth seeing, even if you're all topped up on pop star movies. - PopMatters EDIT

74% Papi Chulo (2019) Just like Sean, Papi Chulo's heart is clearly in the right place but, just like Sean, it has very little regard for Ernesto's feelings and needs. - PopMatters EDIT

5/10 71% Teen Spirit (2019) Taken all together, the music video portions of the film - outstanding on their own - are dragged down by the story to create something that's fun to watch on a Saturday afternoon, but ultimately, Teen Spirit is not all that insightful. - PopMatters EDIT

100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) It's not a repudiation of history, but it is a reminder that history is over and that the strategies that served us well at one time may not be appropriate today. - PopMatters EDIT

53% Woman Walks Ahead (2018) The real issue, though, is that it confuses different types of oppression, and seems to propose that people who've experienced misogyny are uniquely qualified to understand racism and vice versa. - PopMatters EDIT

7/10 94% My Days of Mercy (2017) A horror movie and a love story in its own right, My Days of Mercy is a new take on an old but pressing issue, rooted more in deeply emotions than philosophical arguments. - PopMatters EDIT

75% High Fantasy (2017) It's hard to unpack any of those moments individually, but the strength of the film is that it's willing to push past the homilies we've all been taught about diversity and cooperation and focus on the messy politics and human feelings underneath. - PopMatters EDIT

8/10 78% What Will People Say? (Hva vil folk si) (2018) The culture clash in What Will People Say is manifest in a life-and-death difference between interpretations of Nisha's defiance. - PopMatters EDIT
