Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet N.O.L.A. Circus (2017) The flaws of "Nola Circus" aren't limited to its outrageous and offensive approach. It's that it never succeeds in bringing viewers onto its wavelength, which is probably a good thing for humanity's sake.‐ Los Angeles Times

17% Spark: A Space Tail (2017) One questions how a movie this ill-conceived even got made, and how writer-director Aaron Woodley recruited a voice cast that includes talent like Susan Sarandon, Patrick Stewart and Hilary Swank.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet The Outcasts (2017) Frequently fun and generally harmless, "The Outcasts" doesn't bring anything new to the teen comedy, but that's the nice thing about the sub-genre for its viewers.‐ Los Angeles Times

B+ 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The film brings Charlize Theron on board as villainess, as well as a nuclear sub in the Arctic, a horde of cars speeding through New York City streets, a prison break battle royale, and a giant wrecking ball. It would be too much if it weren't so awesome.‐ The Playlist

No Score Yet Blue Gold: American Jeans (2014) Despite the fabric's familiarity, most viewers will leave the documentary bored.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
B- 46% The Ticket (2017) The Ticket isn't always successful in its search for answers to those questions, but it provokes a dialogue with the viewer against the backdrop of impressive visuals and excellent performances.‐ The Playlist

10% Despite The Falling Snow (2017) Unfortunately, the strong cinematography from David Johnson and costume design by Momirka Bailovic can't overcome a lifeless, poorly structured script from Sarif, based on her own well received novel.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
No Score Yet Walk of Fame (2017) Aggressive and aggressively unfunny, Hollywood-set comedy "Walk of Fame" hates its characters and its audience - and the feeling is mutual.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
81% Mean Dreams (2017) A beautiful, dangerous picture of rural America with echoes of Terrence Malick.‐ Los Angeles Times

81% Actor Martinez (2017) Don't let the low-res, low-budget filmmaking fool you. "Actor Martinez" is an ambitious film that works on a variety of levels.‐ Los Angeles Times

B 100% Betting on Zero (2017) Betting on Zero takes a matter-of-fact approach to its material, but it makes a convincing and sometimes emotional argument against Herbalife.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2017
C+ 63% Django (2017) When Django Reinhardt's fingers aren't dancing across guitar strings, the film has all the vitality of an educational film shown by a substitute teacher. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
73% Catfight (2017) The enjoyably nasty satire "Catfight" doesn't pull its punches, literally or figuratively.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
No Score Yet Burlesque: Heart Of The Glitter Tribe (2017) There's real talent here, whether in more traditional dance, breathing fire or creatively raunchy puppetry. Director Jon Manning explores the performance art beyond its titillating reputation.‐ Los Angeles Times

A- 68% Contemporary Color (2017) Throughout the documentary, infectious joy leaps off the screen with the same energy the color-guard teams display.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
A- 99% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
C- 35% The Great Wall (2017) A beautiful spectacle that elicits giggles for how silly it is.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
30% Havenhurst (2017) "Havenhurst" never has as much fun with its premise as it should, and it peaks before its final scenes.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
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
73% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2017
0% Bad Kids of Crestview Academy (2017) Why does this movie exist and how does it succeed in failing on every level?‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
D 23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) A silly joke of a horror movie‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
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- 36% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2016
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
14% Man Down (2016) A messy movie that has a powerful message but struggles to communicate it with clarity and without an excess of sentimentality.‐ Los Angeles Times
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 24, 2016
100% National Bird (2016) "National Bird" is powerful cinematic journalism.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
100% Asperger's Are Us (2016) The four young men at the heart of this documentary will easily find a home in all but the hardest of hearts.‐ Los Angeles Times
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
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2016
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
82% 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
