Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/4 74% Patti Cake$ (2017) a rousing and triumphant tale of freedom, creative expression, self-discovery, finding your voice -- and actually being heard. Imagine that. ‐ Tribune News Service

72% Lemon (2017) Bravo and Gelman find a transcendent absurdity in the mundane that's awkwardly enchanting. It's more tart than sweet, but deliciously weird nonetheless.‐ Los Angeles Times

3/4 93% Logan Lucky (2017) So warmheartedly enthusiastic, it's hard not to get swept away with this group of not-so-average Joes.‐ Tribune News Service

1.5/4 39% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Already feels like you're half-watching it on TNT on a Saturday afternoon.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 49% The Glass Castle (2017) Due to the herculean task of adaptation, "The Glass Castle" lacks the emotional potency of Cretton's earlier work and the unflinching detail of Walls' memoir.‐ Tribune News Service

67% Pilgrimage (2017) For all its bloody and violent genre trappings, "Pilgrimage" is a gorgeously shot film that carefully renders the details of this fascinating historical period.‐ Los Angeles Times

73% Landline (2017) "Landline," at times, feels a bit inert, that it's coasting on the novelty of '90s nostalgia without justifying that choice, and allowing those references to stand in for actual propulsive storytelling and jokes.‐ Tribune News Service

11% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) A searing indictment of capitalistic government corruption‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 67% Annabelle: Creation (2017) In tangling with this group of feisty girls, Annabelle has become a true horror icon.‐ Tribune News Service

98% Columbus (2017) Almost startling in how assured it is, synthesizing beautiful, controlled images with story and character.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
86% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) Escalante draws remarkable performances out of his cast of mostly newcomers in this film about the consequences of pleasure and the many meanings of flesh; where animal intelligence fills the void left by emotional disconnect.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
92% Some Freaks (2017) Some Freaks explores the way in which those who are teased and tortured for being different can turn on other outsiders, and the emotional trauma of that poisonous isolation.‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Inconsistent, incoherent and often cheesy.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
1/4 36% Kidnap (2017) For all of Berry's breathless, screechy effort, "Kidnap" doesn't contain any suspense or tension.‐ Los Angeles Times

8% The Emoji Movie (2017) There could be far worse ways to spend 86 minutes. But maybe, just maybe, it'd be the better choice to spend those 86 minutes outside, or reading a book, or talking face-to-face with another human being. Because The Emoji Movie could not be more meh.‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 77% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Surprising, vital, fascinating, edifying and absolutely crucial viewing for all of us who plan to continue inhabiting this planet for a while.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 75% Atomic Blonde (2017) After a brisk, efficient, uber-cool first hour, all New Wave tunes and sexy neon lighting, the second hour drags into dullness. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2017
2.5/4 51% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Richly, imaginatively rendered, deeply textured and almost overwhelming. This film drops you into an outer space world that knows no limits on space, time and dimensionality, and asks the viewer to go along for this deeply weird roller coaster ride.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
3/4 88% Girls Trip (2017) The girls of "Girls Trip" prove that women can be many things: powerful, naughty, gross, hilarious and sexy, while still lifting each other up.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
4/4 93% Dunkirk (2017) An instant war classic that finds its power in individual tales of heroism and renders them larger than life.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
53% The Skyjacker's Tale (2017) Shocking and powerfully absorbing‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
18% Wish Upon (2017) A spooky teen story that's not particularly heavy on the scares and over-delivers on the unintentional giggles, ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
4/4 88% Lady Macbeth (2017) A haunting, angry vision of feminine rebellion.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) With emotionally resonant stories, thrilling heroics, and trenchant cultural observations, the "Apes" franchise is a rare breed of blockbuster, where filmmakers have been given the freedom to tell the stories they want, the way they want.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 11, 2017
33% The Red Pill (2016) The Red Pill (the title is a reference to The Matrix) only exacerbates [the] divide with its uncritical, lopsided presentation and inability to craft a compelling argument regarding a topic this controversial.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2017
3/4 91% A Ghost Story (2017) Their missed connection, divided by the void of human existence, is also a beautifully sad and poignant representation for the ways in which we all strive or fail to connect in the present.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 6, 2017
3/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) It delivers eye-popping spectacle in spades, but it's the characters that make it count.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2017
76% The Little Hours (2017) "The Little Hours" never really commits to being one thing or another. There aren't any written jokes, but it treats its own genre as a punchline. Ultimately, you're just left wondering what it is, and what the point of it all might be.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
17% The House (2017) Instead of writing actual characters, they've hired a gaggle of beloved comedians to do bits based on stereotype and persona, and have concocted a cockamamie suburban crime story that manages to be both bizarre and incredibly thin.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
3/4 75% 13 Minutes (Elser) (2017) The answer the film provides seems a bit easier than what the real story must have been. It's presented as a love story, first and foremost.‐ Tribune News Service

1.5/4 61% Despicable Me 3 (2017) The whole thing might as well all be written in Minions chatter. It's wacky, but somehow dull.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 94% Baby Driver (2017) It's cute, to be sure, but is it anything more than that? Maybe it doesn't have to be.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2017
No Score Yet The House on Coco Road (2016) A remarkable document of how social forces affected the lives of Baker and his ancestors. ‐ Los Angeles Times

4/4 98% The Big Sick (2017) It's an exceedingly high degree of difficulty to hit the perfect chord of humor and heart, plucking the heartstrings just so, blending laughter and tears, and "The Big Sick" strums them just right.‐ Tribune News Service

79% The Beguiled (2017) Nicole Kidman is particularly, unsurprisingly excellent in her performance as the steely Miss Martha. She is controlled and in control, unflappable.‐ Tribune News Service

15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) It's hard to imagine anyone reading, let alone writing, the script and believing that it made any sort of sense at all.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 48% Rough Night (2017) You almost wish that "Rough Night" had been given a second pass to sharpen some jokes and smooth the transitions and edges, but the bumps in the road are easy to overlook with this excellent cast.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 14, 2017
67% Miles (2017) At times Miles feels a bit rickety around the edges, but the character at the center is instantly relatable and has a relaxed charm that makes the story compelling.‐ Los Angeles Times

1.5/4 68% Cars 3 (2017) The female empowerment subplot feels hollow because it's clearly just more brand extension -- little girls can be consumers of toy cars too! -- than any sort of story development with heartfelt meaning.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
3/4 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) An operatic melodrama of hidden notes, stolen kisses, family jewels, and love's first blush, but it's also a film about the danger of one's own belief systems, being locked into one way of thinking.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 7, 2017
3/4 83% Megan Leavey (2017) "Megan Leavey," despite its story of wartime heroism, isn't a jingoistic, sentimental slice of pure patriotism. It's far more an intimate drama about a personal journey, a story about true love and companionship.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
3/4 88% It Comes At Night (2017) Once again, Shults demonstrates his extreme resourcefulness as a filmmaker, wringing blood-curdling tension out of controlled camera movements, creative practical lighting, and a red door. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
2.5/4 16% The Mummy (2017) Falls apart at the end, rattling its bones through a series of shockingly violent clashes with Ahmanet. Ultimately, despite her awesome powers, this goddess is reduced to participating in a love triangle with mere mortals. How pedestrian. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) For a film that is almost entirely based on toilet humor of the fourth grade reading level, you may be surprised that there is some sage wisdom to be found in the saga of Captain Underpants. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
85% Band Aid (2017) A charming and profoundly affecting film that dives into the messy business of creation.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
3.5/4 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Witnessing such feminine power is mind-boggling and awe-inspiring, but wistful, too. It's a shame that such instances are so rare to be exceptional.‐ Tribune News Service

62% Buena Vista Social Club: Adios (2017) Despite any shackles, social or otherwise, music will always serve as a mode of liberation, an expression of love, and Buena Vista Social Club: Adios passionately asserts that idea.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) There are no new treasures to be found in this installment, which is dragged down by the anchor of a prescribed franchise blueprint.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
1.5/4 19% Baywatch (2017) This bombastic reboot, directed incompetently by Seth Gordon, is held together with nothing more than hopes, dreams and neoprene, and inevitably, all of those systems fail. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
88% Sacred (2017) Abstract, yet moving... The film articulates a concept of universal humanity. No matter the religion or circumstances, we all have the same desires for peace and connection throughout life.‐ Los Angeles Times
