Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
99% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Can You Ever Forgive Me? is an exquisitely drawn character study, and one of those wonderful, wild, "I can't believe this really happened" biopics. But more than that, it is a movie about loneliness.‐ The Daily Beast

89% First Man (2018) The greatest heroes in history are the ones who didn't set out to become one. That is the American spirit, and crystallizing that in a movie is about as patriotic as a film can get.‐ The Daily Beast

90% A Star Is Born (2018) With A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga nails those 12 notes. And she takes it up a key, too.‐ The Daily Beast

98% Science Fair (2018) The film's beautiful, beating heart is these kids.‐ The Daily Beast

31% 70th Emmy Awards (2018) From lackluster hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che to an unearned demand to be applauded for meager steps toward diversity and inclusion, this was the worst award show in years.‐ The Daily Beast

72% Christopher Robin (2018) There's an undercurrent of melancholy to the film, perhaps explaining why it leaves you in a constant state of misty-eyedness.‐ The Daily Beast

80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) [It] will move you: move you to groan, move you to tears (at least three times, per my count), move you to spontaneously applaud at a Christine Baranski line reading, and move you to butt-dance in your seats.‐ The Daily Beast

46% Skyscraper (2018) A ridiculous movie...an ode to the glory of bad summer blockbusters. ‐ The Daily Beast

68% Ocean's 8 (2018) It's a downright magical performance by Anne Hathaway that rescues the film from its sleepiness, and makes off with all the jewels.‐ The Daily Beast

53% Book Club (2018) There's something relaxing about Bill Holderman's unfussy direction, letting the camera sort of linger on these fine actresses for long takes. ‐ The Daily Beast

100% Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert (2018) We were part of the live audience ready to be taken to church by John Legend and company. Not only did we find salvation, we'd venture that this was the best live TV musical yet.‐ The Daily Beast

41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A visually dazzling, if tonally meandering odyssey that tempers its sci-fi gravitas with a child's sense of humor. It's the rare live-action family film to feel like a bonafide kids' movie.‐ The Daily Beast

45% 90th Academy Awards (2018) The Oscars telecast, clocking in at four hours and 50 minutes, was chock-full of carefully-produced moments. Yet it couldn't live up to its own.‐ The Daily Beast

92% Love, Simon (2018) There's something about Love, Simon that feels like a bona fide event...It's a film that we swooned and winced and cringed and grinned through, the journey the best coming-of-age movies take their audiences on. ‐ The Daily Beast

94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) Give it up for the astutely ridiculous workplace satire that, when it comes to cinematic cajones, is nothing if not a horse of a different color.‐ The Daily Beast
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
98% The Tale (2018) It would be impossible to list the myriad tenets of the conversation surrounding abuse and victimhood that the film explores. We wouldn't purport to answer any of those questions, and maybe the film doesn't intend to either. ‐ The Daily Beast

89% American Animals (2018) As a crime-thriller, it's suitably nerve-wracking and ludicrous, while somehow still poignant and thoughtful. ‐ The Daily Beast
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
95% Three Identical Strangers (2018) [Three Identical Strangers] tickles at our obsession with triplets, the nature vs. nurture debate, and the idea of being separated at birth. But it infuses its story with a dark reality, too, sending a frigid chill up the spine.‐ The Daily Beast

56% The Greatest Showman (2017) The uneven script and stilted dialogue is in such contrast to the stampede of rousing musical numbers that we wonder if the project would have fared better on the stage, where a weak book linking together standout music is arguably more forgivable.‐ The Daily Beast

43% A Christmas Story Live! (2017) A Christmas Story is a cute, mildly amusing tale that, it turns out, becomes extremely grating once you add music. At least, once you add this music.‐ The Daily Beast

90% I, Tonya (2018) I, Tonya is one-of-a-kind and definitely rough around the edges, dressed up to awkwardly fit in with the more traditional award season contenders. There's all the ambition, progressiveness, and danger of the triple axel.‐ The Daily Beast

87% The Post (2018) The film is positively invigorating, partly because of how it winks at the conversations happening in our country -- in newsrooms and beyond -- in its dialogue.‐ The Daily Beast

92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards says a lot about how we treat women who demand answers.‐ The Daily Beast

28% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Few films know exactly what its audience wants from it as much as this sequel to the raunchy-schmaltzy Moms Go Wild (And Learn About Themselves in the Process) hit comedy from last summer.‐ The Daily Beast

47% Whitney (2015) Lifetime's Whitney Houston biopic was confusingly bland, and we're not happy about it.‐ The Daily Beast

No Score Yet The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story (2014) Is The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story the worst movie that has ever been made for television? ‐ The Daily Beast

78% Atomic Blonde (2017) The 'female James Bond' label? [Charlize] Theron earns it, but she doesn't need it.‐ The Daily Beast
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
85% It (2017) Despite all the marketing focus on the homicidal circus freak, It was never about the clown. It's about how trauma haunts a childhood and how the latent ennui of small-town America can fan the flames of our greatest fears.‐ The Daily Beast

93% Jerry Before Seinfeld (2017) It's certainly pleasant, and anyone who is a fan of his will chuckle their way through it. But it's unclear what we're being sold here.‐ The Daily Beast

55% 47 Meters Down (2017) It is a slightly terrifying, slightly maddening shark movie. We will likely need a week or so before swimming in the ocean again, which is all we ever want from a shark movie!‐ The Daily Beast
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2017
91% A Ghost Story (2017) It is profound, peculiar, frustrating, frightening, transfixing, maddening, and, mostly, beautiful. ‐ The Daily Beast

5/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) What's so ambitious and ultimately so masterful about Dunkirk is that it is almost entirely an action sequence.‐ The Daily Beast

48% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) [Rihanna] brings gusto, grit, and gravitas to a project that is otherwise a farce. She's wrings spitfire energy, regret, hope, and, ultimately, doom out of basically two scenes.‐ The Daily Beast

78% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Bridget Jones has grown up. We owe it to ourselves to grow up along with her. ‐ The Daily Beast
