Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ No Score Yet The Hero (2017) "The Hero" is a resonant depiction of a man fearlessly reckoning with his life, his image and most importantly, his heart. Sam Elliott could not be more compelling. ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 22, 2017
A No Score Yet City of Ghosts (2017) Jaw dropping. We should be shocked, dismayed and horrified. ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 22, 2017
2/4 42% The Resurrection of Gavin Stone (2017) A portrayal we haven't often seen before, and marks a new direction for films targeted at that audience. It may even draw a new believer or two, but there's still a long way to go to totally nail the faith-based comedy genre. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jan 20, 2017
3/4 81% The Founder (2017) Keaton is fascinating as Kroc, a bad guy who embodies the American Dream - a man who isn't necessarily the best or most talented but who's willing to step on anyone to get ahead. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jan 20, 2017
3/4 76% Split (2017) Shyamalan demonstrates a mastery over the form of the mean and lean psycho-thriller, aided in no small party by the performances of McAvoy, Taylor-Joy and Buckley, and smooth-yet-unsettling camera work by cinematographer Michael Gioulakis. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jan 20, 2017
42% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) If watching Donnie Yen get barreled on a surf-bike is wrong, to hell with being right. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 19, 2017
0% The Book Of Love (2017) Fo a film thats trying very hard to make you feel, it sure leaves you cold. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 13, 2017
B+ 92% They Call Us Monsters (2017) Restrained, sensitive and quietly heartbreaking. ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 13, 2017
33% Monster Trucks (2017) The story and characters are so bland and color-by-numbers that it's hard to care about this juvenile adventure romp ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 13, 2017
24% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Despite any titular trepidation, there is fun to be had and even some cultural relevancy if you decide to say hi to The Bye Bye Man. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 12, 2017
B+ 90% Ma (2017) If you're willing to go along on a silent, experimental, dance-based journey of a mother in the desert, Ma is well worth the ride. ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Jan 9, 2017
63% Videofilia (and Other Viral Syndromes) (Videofilia: y otros síndromes virales) (2016) In Videophilia, writer-director Juan Daniel Fernandez has created an experimental aesthetic; a pixelated, paranoid pastiche of World Wide Web ephemera, television and other digital detritus. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 9, 2017
34% Live By Night (2017) As a director, he's too enamored of his star to push the character to the uncomfortable places that are demanded by this tale steeped in contradictory moral and ethical extremes. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jan 6, 2017
4/4 92% Hidden Figures (2017) An assertion of humanity and civil rights that is pure cinematic nourishment for soul. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jan 6, 2017

Posted Dec 22, 2016
100% The C Word (2016) The C Word is a trenchant film with a crucial message that bears repeating. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 22, 2016
2.5/4 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) Despite the tortured writing, Kurzel shoots the heck out of the film, especially the flashbacks, when Aguilar and his assassin companion Maria parkour around ancient Andalusia, kicking some serious Templar butt. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Dec 20, 2016
96% Gleason (2016) A remarkable, heartrending portrait that showcases the triumph of the human spirit at its most raw. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Dec 19, 2016

Posted Dec 16, 2016
2/4 31% Passengers (2016) What's a rather intriguing premise, replete with meaty themes to chew on, eschews all that to focus on sexy space fun times. ‐ Tribune News Service

94% Slash (2016) The nerd-sexy coming-of-age tale the Internet age so desperately needs. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 15, 2016

Posted Dec 15, 2016
1/4 24% Solace (2016) An overly convoluted tale drowned in creepy but essentially meaningless violent images and dry performances. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Dec 13, 2016
3/4 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Doesn't break the mold in terms of franchise formula, and it's an enjoyable installment in the "Star Wars" canon. However, it's not much more than that. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Dec 13, 2016
3/4 70% Miss Sloane (2016) Chastain's showstopping performance elevates "Miss Sloane" above typical genre fare, though it lands a one-two punch in managing to be both salacious and smart. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Dec 8, 2016
3/4 93% La La Land (2016) As a candy-hued musical valentine to Los Angeles, "La La Land" is both a crowd-pleaser and a locals-only inside joke. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Dec 8, 2016
2.5/4 42% Office Christmas Party (2016) The delightfully debauched holiday desecration we need this year. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 8, 2016

Posted Dec 2, 2016
No Score Yet Jack's Apocalypse (2015) Jack's Apocalypse is unable to convey any realistic stakes or authenticity in its story line. ‐ Los Angeles Times

93% Notes on Blindness (2016) Achingly poignant and startlingly immediate ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 1, 2016
45% Pet (2016) The constant power flipping allows for some interesting explorations of both the misogyny and misandry demonstrated by the main characters, and the way they justify their actions through the philosophical lens of love and sacrifice. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 1, 2016
3.5/4 87% Lion (2016) Patel easily grows to fill the needs of this complex and conflicted character, a man caught between two worlds, two cultures and two families. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Dec 1, 2016
4/4 89% Jackie (2016) Portman is simply magnetic in the role, but it's a performance that works when in concert with all the other elements of the filmmaking... It's entirely of a piece; a perfect film because all of the details are perfect together. ‐ Tribune News Service

3.5/4 95% Moana (2016) The film is richer for its attention to heritage, going far beyond surface aesthetics, building the foundation of "Moana" on the values and beliefs that make up this culture. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Nov 22, 2016
2.5/4 61% Allied (2016) The muted palette, methodical plotting and concealed emotions make for a film that slowly simmers instead of reaching a roiling boil of drama.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Nov 22, 2016
No Score Yet Goldbricks in Bloom (2016) There's a dryly acid humor to the proceedings, but the performances and Sangra's script allow the characters' humanity to eclipse their oftentimes insufferable and spoiled surface. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 20, 2016
No Score Yet Nobody Walks in LA (2016) A relationship drama wrapped in a city symphony, "Nobody Walks in L.A." is a glossy, intoxicating advertisement for the City of Angels. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 20, 2016
100% The Anthropologist (2016) [An] utterly winning documentary. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 18, 2016
2.5/4 71% Bleed For This (2016) You can't shake the sense that the real Vinny Paz is far more fascinating than this basic boxing biopic. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Nov 17, 2016
3.5/4 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) The sharply written, potty-mouthed comedy isn't all-too dark, but the lightness is tinged with a sense of realistic edginess that makes the story feel whole and relatable. ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Nov 15, 2016
3.5/4 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Newt Scamander is indeed the hero who we need right now, and Rowling is the storyteller we need now more than ever. ‐ Tribune News Service

Posted Nov 14, 2016
44% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) The best parts of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk aren't the battles or the spectacles or even the groundbreaking technology. It's the easy camaraderie between the soldiers, led with a gruff, dry humor by standout Garrett Hedlund ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Nov 11, 2016
3/4 89% Loving (2016) For all of its subtlety and restraint, "Loving" washes over you, seeps into your blood stream and remains there long after the film is over. ‐ Tribune News Service
