Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

73% 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

16% 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 50% 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

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 66% 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

3/4 75% 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 82% 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

3/4 86% 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

2.5/4 15% 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

85% 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

84% Band Aid (2017) A charming and profoundly affecting film that dives into the messy business of creation.‐ Los Angeles Times

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

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

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

86% 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
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
33% The Last Shaman (2017) a fascinating and sometimes terrifying introduction to ayahuasca.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
18% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) A dirge of unfunny scatological material, techno-anxiety and child endangerment masquerading as familial bonding. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
97% The Survivalist (2017) eerie and masterful ... as riveting as it is morally confounding.‐ Los Angeles Times

48% Everything, Everything (2017) Stenberg's relaxed charisma carries what is a rather preposterous premise... Aside from its leading lady, what "Everything, Everything" has going for it is its light, fantastical aesthetic and unexpected sense of buoyancy. ‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) This desire for procreation and preservation of the self - human, alien or artificial - is what motivates every being in the Alien universe, and in Covenant, Scott sets up a thrilling thunderdome in which we can watch this bloody battle unfold.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

3/4 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) "Covenant" rips through plot points and action set pieces with the speed of a xenomorph ripping through flesh. The story is a whirlwind smash-and-grab.‐ Tribune News Service

1/4 18% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) A dirge of unfunny scatological material, techno-anxiety and child endangerment masquerading as familial bonding. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted May 16, 2017
85% The Lovers (2017) A cautionary tale that never passes judgment, an exploration of the way that love can be a many-splendored thing, with many people, some of them twice.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
2.5/4 51% The Dinner (2017) Although Moverman's cinematic style can be physically uncomfortable to experience, it's impossible to turn away from the quartet of incredible performances. ‐ Tribune News Service

15% The Circle (2017) Floats many intriguing ideas, then lets them drop with a thud. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
55% Lowriders (2017) Excels in its depiction of the Los Angeles of 2017... a fascinating cultural exposure, but lacks a truly impactful story. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
49% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) Coppola deftly shifts the focus to the woman behind the great man and asks who she is, how she understands the world, what she cares about. It's fully her story and a rare perspective‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
1/4 36% Snatched (2017) Feels like a rough sketch of a movie rather than a fleshed-out joke-dense script. ‐ Tribune News Service

2/4 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Unlike any other medieval warfare and sorcery movie ever committed to film, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's good. This King Arthur superhero origin story is strange, invigorating, often outright bad, confusing, and totally wild.‐ Tribune News Service

83% Tomorrow Ever After (2017) Ultimately, Tomorrow Ever After, contains a hopeful message that somehow, the world just might end up a better place.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet Erasing Eden (2016) [It] makes vague gestures toward the self-empowerment found in personal choice, but those morals are lost in the downright disturbing and degrading gauntlet Eden has to walk through to find herself.‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) Miller's riveting, heartfelt portrayal etches a delicate picture underneath the colorful, wild portrait of Fawcett - of the losses suffered at home in service of greater ambitions and fantastical dreams.‐ Tribune News Service

1/4 67% Free Fire (2017) Without soul or wit, we're left with nothing but bad Halloween costumes and artillery. Nostalgia never felt so bad.‐ Tribune News Service

85% Disneynature Born In China (2017) John Krasinski narrates, and though he doesn't achieve that mix of gravitas and cheeky wit [of] Sir David Attenborough ... his vocal stylings are perfectly homey and serviceable for the task of guiding us through the lives of these special animals.‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 50% The Promise (2017) With seemingly all the right pieces, it's a disappointment that "The Promise" lacks the energy and originality needed to sustain itself.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
2.5/4 26% Unforgettable (2017) It's a uniquely feminine kind of villainy, and Di Novi and Heigl understand it implicitly in order to execute it perfectly.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
67% Little Boxes (2017) "Little Boxes" offers tame social commentary in a pleasant package.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The often silly, always outrageous, comfortably formulaic films about fast cars and chosen family have a charm that manages to permeate the crusty exterior of even the most curmudgeonly of critics.‐ Tribune News Service

B+ 57% i hate myself :) (2017) It's refreshing to see a filmmaker embrace this honesty with such gusto (which, like life, is often painful or awkward to experience).‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2017
45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) It gets bogged down in aesthetics that are stimulating only for the sake of stimulation, seemingly without a flicker of thought behind them. Shell indeed, but there's no ghost at home.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 60% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) The film's flaws in pacing are easily overlooked in the shadow of Chastain's moving performance, as well as the performances of those around her. Caro unspools an evergreen tale about the clarifying power of empathy to diffuse fear and hatred.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
3/4 47% Bokeh (2017) What sets "Bokeh" apart among the "low-key apocalypse" cinematic subgenre is not what happens, but what doesn't happen. It's the unknowing that is their undoing. The result is a subtle but ultimately profound humanist message. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
2.5/4 46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) If the Rangers are on the CW, Banks is in a universe of her own, stalking about the small town of Angel Grove in hobo dominatrix gear, dramatically stage whispering, "GOLD," "CRYSTALS" and "KRISPY KREME" to no one in particular.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
2.5/4 16% CHIPS (2017) Rambunctious and insouciant, "CHIPS" has about as much nutritional cinematic value as the potato variety.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
2.5/4 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) The referential treatment is wise - it's truly the only way a sequel like this could get away with existing.... That interrogation becomes a quicksand in which the film is repeatedly and unfortunately bogged down.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
2.5/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) There's a complicated jumble of gender politics at hand, and any attempt at modernizing the dynamic is more of a random piling on rather than a thoughtful incorporation.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
53% The Belko Experiment (2017) By the end of the film, you're left with the unshakable feeling that everyone involved, from actors to filmmakers to the audience, is, and should have been, better than material like this.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
4/4 90% Raw (2017) Ducournau vividly illustrates a uniquely feminine body horror, both emotional and corporeal, rendered in vast, bold, dripping red strokes.‐ Tribune News Service
