No Score Yet Give Me Future: Major Lazer in Cuba (2017) As lazers go, more minor than major. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 22, 2017
31% Passengers (2016) A vacillating pile of contrivances meant to keep the lovers apart until the F/X-heavy finale. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Dec 20, 2016
61% Allied (2016) The pie-eyed adoration of cinema past beautifully complements a tale of two people (characters and performers both) who pretend for a living. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Nov 23, 2016
96% Rams (Hrútar) (2016) Gummi and Kiddi's interactions tend toward the comical, but the rock-steady widescreen cinematography by Sturla Brandth Grøvlen lends the proceedings a deadpan aura. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Nov 15, 2016
50% 31 (2016) Horror piles on horror, absurdity on absurdity, all of it treated by Zombie with carnivalesque abstraction. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Oct 21, 2016
60% The Siege of Jadotville (2016) Good intentions only take us so far, of course. Whenever Smyth moves away from the battlefield, the film is on shaky ground, with the near-comical scenes involving Strong's cowardly subordinate a real low point. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 7, 2016
64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) There's a fullness of imagination and artistry here that's become increasingly rare in Burton's work. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Sep 27, 2016
22% (Re) Assignment (2016) The film's dialogue is entertainingly hard-boiled, and the performances knowing without ever being arch. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 17, 2016
93% La La Land (2016) Not once do you feel like you're watching red-blooded characters, so much as you are the good-natured, tirelessly committed actors playing them. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 12, 2016
72% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Each Nocturnal Animals story thread is of a tonal piece, all about striking poses as opposed to exploring humanity. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 10, 2016
82% A Quiet Passion (2017) A Quiet Passion, like all of Terence Davies's films, doesn't lack for density of theme, allusion, and effect. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 9, 2016
71% XOXO (2016) In the moment, the film's simplistic spirit is intoxicating. But take my word for it -- the real-world hangover that follows is fierce. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 30, 2016
84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) To boldly go where no man has gone before is not for a property so culturally and economically exploitable. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Jul 22, 2016
No Score Yet Center Stage: On Pointe (2016) By the time the climactic, Rihanna-scored musical number arrives, your attention will have long since waltzed off. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 27, 2016
81% Cosmos (2016) Feels, like so much of the inimitable Polish director's work, as if it was beamed in from another galaxy. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Jun 14, 2016
96% De Palma (2016) This is a film about a great artist reckoning with a much-debated body of work ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Jun 7, 2016
99% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) there's real beauty and devastation in the film's finale, as the harrowing father-daughter relationship reaches its apex ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted Jun 1, 2016
71% Holy Hell (2016) Holy Hell is a purgative and an act of atonement. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted May 23, 2016
57% Money Monster (2016) A hostage thriller with barely any tension. A recession-era cri de cur without much fervor. A star vehicle that thumbs its nose at the common man it purports to represent. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted May 13, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) It's just stultifyingly dutiful. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted May 4, 2016
89% A Bigger Splash (2016) You don't just need, per Jean-Luc Godard, a gun and a girl for a movie. Beautiful people in a beautiful location suffices. ‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Posted May 2, 2016
13% Special Correspondents (2016) Netflix's ill-conceived satire marks a career low for writer-director-star Ricky Gervais. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 24, 2016
C 70% A Hologram for the King (2016) A Hologram For The King is a 97-minute movie that feels like it was cut down from two-hours-plus, with whole subplots reduced or jettisoned in what was likely an arduous post-production period. ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 21, 2016
13% Meet the Blacks (2016) Wrongheaded, utterly incompetent, and nearly laugh-free ... ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 1, 2016
46% The Young Messiah (2016) This uninspiring, borderline inept spiritual drama about the Son of God's formative years preaches to the choir. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 12, 2016
C+ 53% Lolo (2016) Delpy is so good at portraying her character's varied neuroses, which have been unwittingly forged over a lifetime, that her last-act enlightenment feels like a cop-out. ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 8, 2016
100% Homegrown: The Counter-Terror Dilemma (2016) The film takes a tough and troubling look at the systems the United States has in place to prevent terror attacks on American soil-as well as at the people (both government agents and private citizens) those systems affect. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 9, 2016
43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Lumbering, lifeless and -- strange thing to say about a cadaver -- almost entirely charmless. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 3, 2016
0% The Ridiculous 6 (2015) "Why bother?" Sandler and his collaborators seem to be asking over the course of a very long two hours. And streaming viewers will hopefully respond in kind. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 14, 2015
0% The Leisure Class (2015) We're here to judge The Leisure Class itself, and hoo boy, what a whole lot of nothing this purported comedy is. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 2, 2015
96% Son of Saul (2015) The technique continually impresses even as the moral perspective of the enterprise is ultimately squelched by all the aural-visual gimmickry. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2015
81% Sunset Song (2016) Sunset Song is much more conventionally A-to-B, though it's a strangely freeing framework within which Davies achieves some gorgeously subtle effects. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2015
95% In Jackson Heights (2015) Light in darkness and darkness in light; for every affirmative moment, Wiseman finds a complementary negative. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 12, 2015
96% Jafar Panahi's Taxi (2015) It's a movie studio on wheels (all 82 minutes of Taxi, save for the provocative closing moments, take place within the vehicle), with the entire populace of Tehran as potential stars. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 10, 2015
81% The Assassin (2015) One of Hou's constant themes (one that recurs in the work of many of the notable Taiwanese directors) is alienation, not just of a personal, but of a national sort. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 10, 2015
D 13% Sinister 2 (2015) Not a moment of Sinister 2 is convincing or frightening, mostly due to the uber-stilted child acting and the flat, overlit visual palette, which pales in comparison to what Derrickson and cinematographer Chris Norr achieved on the shadow-laden first film. ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 20, 2015
D+ 60% Samba (2015) This is a movie that thinks the deepest way to engage with the race and class issues it raises is by showing an enlightened white woman ... quoting and then dancing to Bob Marley. ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 23, 2015
B 84% Do I Sound Gay? (2015) It seems, for a horrible moment, that this is just going to be a straightforward and solipsistic self-help narrative. But Thorpe quickly widens his view to tackle the role of the voice in the gay community at large ... ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 9, 2015
D+ 21% In Stereo (2015) This is a tedious modern romance that thinks it's spouting universal truths when it's actually as myopically narcissistic as the two leads. ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 2, 2015
B 81% Batkid Begins (2015) Tears will be shed, many of them surely genuine. Yet there's still something about this oversize spectacle, and Miles' ultimate place in it, that gives nagging pause. ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 25, 2015
20% A Deadly Adoption (2015) Beyond Ferrell, Wiig and company's superficial assurance at keeping the one-joke premise going (right up to a climactic musical number that elicits a chuckle or two), the film feels disconnected and utterly disposable. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 22, 2015
C- 83% Testament Of Youth (2015) There's a good movie in Brittain's story, but you wouldn't know it from this lethargic, BBC-produced bore. ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 4, 2015
D 7% Survivor (2015) Bunk of the very lowest level. ‐ AV Club
Posted May 28, 2015
50% Tomorrowland (2015) Corny, childish gibberish writ large. ‐ The L Magazine
Posted May 21, 2015
No Score Yet Masters of Horror (2005) The climactic mass uprising of veterans is an unfortunate wash, falling far short of the transcendent call-to-arms it so clearly aims to be. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted May 21, 2015
C 91% Sunshine Superman (2015) The subjects themselves may soar, but the film that contains them remains frustratingly earthbound. ‐ AV Club
Posted May 21, 2015
B- 93% I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) Elliott and Danner fare best together, mainly because of their swoon-worthy chemistry; it's surprising that they've never worked together before this. ‐ AV Club
Posted May 14, 2015
B- 85% The Seven Five (2015) An engrossing, if never entirely fulfilling, viewing experience. ‐ AV Club
Posted May 7, 2015
C- 33% The Reconstruction Of William Zero (2015) There's a good movie lurking in here somewhere. ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 16, 2015
A- 82% Dior and I (2015) For all the seductive imagery of billowing apparel and impossibly angled high heels, Tcheng never loses sight of the people overseeing every stitch. ‐ AV Club
