Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 100% Get Out (2017) This is a major filmmaking debut that's fully worthy of all the conversation it will start, both around its commentary on race in America and how truly good it is.‐ The Playlist

C- 35% The Great Wall (2017) A beautiful spectacle that elicits giggles for how silly it is.‐ The Playlist

20% 1 Night (One Night) (2017) Even its wistful tone points toward an opportunity missed; unfortunately, the film doesn't fully explore its big ideas or give its talented cast dialogue to match.‐ Los Angeles Times

33% Havenhurst (2017) "Havenhurst" never has as much fun with its premise as it should, and it peaks before its final scenes.‐ Los Angeles Times

D+ 17% The Space Between Us (2017) This is a saccharine science fiction romance that doesn't actually concern itself with science fiction or romance; instead, it's the equivalent of astronaut ice cream, lacking in substance and crumbling to bits at the slightest pressure.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
80% The Grace of Jake (2017) It earns points for not being overly pious, but there's little depth in its exploration of one man's spiritual evolution.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
67% This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous (2017) For all that the Gigi Gorgeous videos provide, Kopple's experienced touch adds depth and a clear narrative.‐ Los Angeles Times

33% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) Boasting a higher body count than its IQ, "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" is violent, idiotic fun.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
100% The Sunshine Makers (2017) This documentary meanders a bit as it goes between time periods, but it's never less than entertaining and illuminating.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
B 75% Split (2017) If "Split" were a drama released in the final months of the year, James McAvoy would be getting awards talk, but its "lesser" genre status means that he likely won't receive the attention the performance(s) deserve.‐ The Playlist

43% Bakery in Brooklyn (My Bakery in Brooklyn) (2017) It's the cinematic equivalent of a novice baker throwing lemon curd, salted caramel, Nutella and crème anglaise into a bowl: sticky, overly sweet glop, without any real substance or balance.‐ Los Angeles Times

17% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) This entry won't disappoint hardcore fans.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
No Score Yet Sins of Our Youth (2016) How the boys' lives and plans unravel keeps the audience involved, even if the film's overly flashy style and cardboard characters threaten to push them away at every turn.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
C- 38% A Kind of Murder (2016) A Kind of Murder" attempts to distinguish itself in its approach to style, but leaves much to be desired in its story and character.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
100% The Bad Kids (2016) The vérité approach in "The Bad Kids" gives viewers insight into a timely issue by literally putting a face on it.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
No Score Yet The Ataxian (2016) More unity of style would have made a better final product, but Kyle's story - coupled with vibrant cinematography from Schlanser - is strong enough to keep audiences engaged and moved throughout the brief running time.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
36% Sugar Mountain (2016) Pretty but oh-so-dumb, "Sugar Mountain" is the cinematic equivalent of a himbo.‐ Los Angeles Times

83% Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America (2016) It may lack focus in its approach to its subject, but Davis' compelling character and powerful message keep the audience engaged.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
0% Contract to Kill (2016) The script from writer-director Keoni Waxman ... confuses a stream of expletives for wit. There's little help from Seagal, who delivers lines like, "I'm interested. Tell me more," while sounding completely bored. We know the feeling.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
0% Anonymous (Hacker) (2016) "Anonymous" likely intends to be thought-provoking, but it only invited questions about the illogical choices of both the characters and the filmmakers.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2016

Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2016
No Score Yet Trezoros: The Lost Jews of Kastoria (2016) Its sometimes-meandering approach demonstrates a lack of direction and leaves a tragic story feeling bland.‐ Los Angeles Times

Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016

Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
B+ 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Craig makes her directorial debut with "The Edge of Seventeen," which ranks among the best teen comedies of last two decades. It would feel right at home with a movie marathon of modern classics "Mean Girls" and "Easy A."‐ The Playlist

6% Shut In (2016) "Shut In" is more effective as a 90-minute commercial for the L.L. Bean aesthetic than as a pseudo-psychological thriller.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
No Score Yet Hara Kiri (2016) Its biggest misstep is the two central characters who are so unlikable as to be unwatchable.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
No Score Yet Beauty Bites Beast (2016) It blunts its own effectiveness by over-embellishing stories and facts that could have stood on their own.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
91% All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone (2016) Featuring footage from the last six decades, "All Governments Lie" is a timely, convincing documentary that will cause audiences to question what they see and read.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
0% My Dead Boyfriend (2016) It's the type of indie film that might have played at a minor festival at the turn of the millennium, with the audience offering pity laughter for the cast and crew in attendance and the director waiting in vain for news of an acquisition.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
40% A Billion Lives (2016) "A Billion Lives" employs a variety of experts in relaying its message, but it sometimes feels like a statistic-filled, 95-minute commercial for the vaping industry rather than a feature-length documentary.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2016
21% Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) This comedy is unlikely to win over any new fans, but the devoted will find comfort in the familiarity.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
80% We Are X (2016) Invoking the spirit of an epic rock show, "We Are X" expresses all the energy, joy and sadness of X Japan's music.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
No Score Yet Hate Rising (2016) It's a capably made documentary that argues its case with intelligence and compassion, though it's unlikely that it will sway the candidate's most ardent defenders.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2016
20% The Late Bloomer (2016) Even a talented cast can't overcome the script from five screenwriters, whose uneven final product is surprisingly bland for all its raunchiness.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2016
No Score Yet Loserville (2016) The teen comedy "Loserville" from freshman filmmaker Lovell Holder offers its audience a SparkNotes version of high school: It skims over relevant details and lacks deep insight when it comes to plot and character.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
90% SEED: The Untold Story (2016) Farming may seem prosaic to the uninitiated, but "Seed: The Untold Story" reveals the poetry present in the practice through its smallest element.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
50% The Best Democracy Money Can Buy (2016) Many viewers will find it challenging to see the substance hidden in the documentary's over-the-top style that makes Michael Moore's directorial stamp look subtle.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
No Score Yet Gemini (2016) This melodrama struggles with serious post-production issues and an unnecessarily complex story, losing any of its intended impact in the process.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2016
B 94% Sand Storm (Sufat Chol) (2016) Despite its simple plot, it's a complex drama with characters to match.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
B 92% Demon (2016) Demon is a film that improves the longer it sits with you, as various images seep into your consciousness and reappear without warning.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2016
A- 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Feels like a miracle, evoking joy, surprise and wonder in its audience.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2016
B 59% Bad Moms (2016) Though it doesn't quite do for mothers what Bridesmaids did for single women, Bad Moms is a riotous comedy that left my theater echoing with shrieks, snorts and cackles.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
B 100% At The Fork (2016) An enlightening doc about the ethics and morality of food that only occasionally feels like eating your vegetables.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2016
B 71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Doesn't have quite the depth or the pedigree of other cinematic versions of his novels...but it's still worth the trip.‐ The Playlist

B+ 83% My Love, Don't Cross That River (2016) A sweet charmer that leaves the viewer thinking more about the couple's happier times together than the fate that awaits them.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2016
