Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet The Storyteller (2018) While "The Storyteller" aspires to be a feature-length Hallmark card, it only manages dollar-store sentimentality in its plot and platitudes.‐ Los Angeles Times

85% A Boy. A Girl. A Dream. (2018) Not every directorial choice or camera movement works, but this indie drama shines in the silences.‐ Los Angeles Times

50% Where Hands Touch (2018) Asante usually excels at sharing stories audiences haven't seen before, so it's unfortunate that this one feels so dully familiar.‐ Los Angeles Times

50% MDMA (Cardinal X) (2018) "MDMA"... doesn't fully communicate the context of Angie's experience priors to the film, keeping us removed from the character and the movie as a whole.‐ Los Angeles Times

Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2018
No Score Yet Last Curtain Call (2018) "Last Curtain Call" may lament the emptiness of its protagonist's hedonistic and selfish lifestyle, but the film itself offers few pleasures with its poor pacing and cliched script.‐ Los Angeles Times

75% Songwriter (2018) Whether a veiled ad for Sheeran's discography, MacBooks (no obscured logos here) or Apple Music itself, this Apple Music-exclusive documentary still inspires.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
50% Down a Dark Hall (2018) The scares might not satisfy those old enough to vote, but it should provide mild chills for its target audience.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
0% Breaking & Exiting (2018) A plot that would only happen in a movie, and not a particularly good one.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
B+ 96% To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) Unlike previous Netflix misses, To All the Boys I've Loved Before is likely to be watched on repeat for years to come by romance fans of all ages.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
20% Pretty Bad Actress (2018) A Hollywood satire with all the teeth of a Gerber spokesbaby, "Pretty Bad Actress" takes aim at celebrity culture - and misses.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2018
No Score Yet Making a Killing (2018) "Making a Killing" feels like a cheap Nevada Barr knockoff that lacks suspense, or a dusty paperback thriller you'd find at a rest stop.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
B 73% Never Goin' Back (2018) Anarchic and daring, Never Goin' Back is a tale of adolescent female friendship that is somehow ballsier than your standard dude-driven buddy comedy.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
No Score Yet Urban Country (2018) Well-shot and well-intentioned, this drama will likely please its core faith-based audience who won't roll their eyes at the protagonist's name or the earnest, hackneyed dialogue.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
No Score Yet The Row (2018) "The Row" is somehow even less fun than you'd imagine an EDM-infused, party-punch-soaked serial killer film would be, and it's barely even a horror movie beyond its central concept.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
No Score Yet Hell Mountain (2018) The twitchy editing is more likely to induce a seizure than terror, and it can't mask the wooden, disengaged performances from just about everyone on screen.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
No Score Yet Heels (2018) Though individual parts work, this indie film from actor-writer-director Ryan Bottiglieri never fully unites its various elements and disparate tones into a well-crafted whole.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
C 80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Despite all its flaws, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is full of delights. It's a deep-fried slice of halloumi, delivered to the audience on a platter with a flourish.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2018
B- 57% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Dark Web lacks the freshness of its predecessor, but its bleak view on humanity, as well as some truly unsettling visuals, still set it apart from its fellow horror fare.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
B 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Yes, Fallout is bonkers and you'll want to be caught in its preposterous, but intense blast radius.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
No Score Yet 7 Splinters in Time (2018) Despite an ambitious premise and style, the neo-noir sci-fi indie is a fractured narrative that can't achieve what its lofty ideas intend.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
59% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) "Hotel Transylvania 3" may lack the indelibility of the medium's best offerings for kids, but hopefully its clear theme of acceptance lingers long after the inoffensive odor of its fart jokes dissipates.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
B+ 76% What Keeps You Alive (2018) This isn't the first horror movie to exploit the isolation of its location, but Minihan sets his film apart from the pack with an audacious script and equally bold images to match.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2018
No Score Yet King of Peking (2017) "King of Peking" has many charms, but its passion for cinema is its most infectious.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
66% Ideal Home (2018) Coogan and Rudd display real chemistry, bouncing barbs off each other with an undercurrent of affection, and Gore is cute but never nauseatingly so.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
No Score Yet Christian Audigier the VIF (2018) "Christian Audigier the Vif" lacks the strong narrative structure that would make it a better documentary, and it often skips details about Audigier's life and experience that might have offered deeper insight into the designer.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
44% Incident In a Ghost Land (Ghostland) (2018) Transphobia and misogyny flow through the film as much as blood, staining what might have been a solid genre effort.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
25% Beach House (2018) There's an interesting idea at its core that it never commits to, and Saltiel can't fully execute what he does try to explore.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
92% A Skin So Soft (Ta peau si lisse) (2018) This minimalist approach to maximalist bodies offers an intimate look at six men whose lives are centered on their physical performance and appearance.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
No Score Yet To A More Perfect Union: U.S. v. Windsor (2018) The film reminds us that there are individual human experiences behind the legal decisions that impact an entire country.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
42% The Valley (2018) Tackling teen suicide in a film requires a deft touch, but "The Valley" approaches the weighty topic with a heavy, sluggish hand.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
B+ 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) Ocean's 8 is the self-aware frosé of movies; a summer delight, perfectly airy and refreshing,‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
No Score Yet Funeral Day (2018) At its conclusion, the only consolation is that the film was short - and that it's over.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
B 73% Adrift (2018) Adrift avoids the perils of most survival stories, thanks not only to its strong cast and well-structured script but to filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
75% Discreet (2018) Worth watching even though it doesn't fully cohere beyond its well-executed tone.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 30, 2018
No Score Yet Yadvi - The Dignified Princess (2018) Unfortunately, while its intentions are as pure as the heart of its heroine, the biography offers little depth or insight into Yadvi.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
No Score Yet Andy Irons: Kissed By God (2018) Awe-inspiring and emotional, "Andy Irons: Kissed by God" ably strikes a balance between a standard sports doc and a biography of a man whose internal battles were as challenging as his competition.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
85% Cargo (2018) Co-directors Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke (the latter of whom wrote the screenplay) sacrifice some tension with their more character-based approach, but the cumulative effect is emotionally powerful.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
59% Always at the Carlyle (2018) Plays like a feature-length video you'd expect to see on a loop in the lobby of a less classy version of the luxe New York institution and celebrity favorite (so basically anywhere, really).‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
B 100% Egg (2018) Its ultimate sympathy for these women may be at odds with earlier jabs at them, but it creates an empathetic space that is surprisingly emotionally satisfying.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
100% What Haunts Us (2018) Absolutely the stuff of nightmares...will linger far longer in its audience's minds than most films about imagined terrors.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
83% Class Rank (2018) "Class Rank" is a late bloomer that takes time to find its footing, but once it does, it proves to be as stealthily likable as its characters.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
B- 55% Duck Butter (2018) Like its characters, Duck Butter is imperfect, but unlike human objects of our affection, it's attractive despite its flaws rather than because of them.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
75% Son of Bigfoot (2018) Doesn't feature quite the budget, visuals or imagination of its American blockbuster counterparts, but it will likely provide a fun 90-minute diversion for kids.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 1, 2018
93% Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story (2018) "Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story" is the type of film that's impossible to come away from unchanged.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 1, 2018
71% Jet Trash (2018) It wears its influences on its tattooed sleeve, but this drug-fueled film is still an entertaining watch filled with bold style.‐ Los Angeles Times
