Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
70% The Year of Spectacular Men (2018) When the film finally finds its rhythm, there's too many missed opportunities for it to be a hit.‐ Film Inquiry

97% The Endless (2018) It's a genre-bending jaunt that can truly shock and hypnotize if given the chance‐ Film Inquiry

100% It Will Be Chaos (2018) It's important to see, because while you might think you're aware and informed, if you're like me, you'll realize you aren't. It Will Be Chaos works to change that. Watch, and pay attention.‐ Film Inquiry

83% Doubtful (2018) The concept of a teacher guiding delinquent teenagers isn't a premise unknown to film, and yet Doubtful, the feature debut by Eliran Elya, makes it feel as if it is.‐ Film Inquiry

88% The Lookout (2007) It uses its strengths to keep you guessing, but it also ensures emotive heft. The movie could have easily been unbalanced, but instead it's uniquely engaging.‐ Film Inquiry

84% Disobedience (2018) Disobedience shows the importance of personal truth, even when the world attempts to disparage it, and it does so with a gentle, moving beauty.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Back Roads (2018) With everything involved in this movie, it could have been too much, but Pettyfer strikes a clean cut, making this drama ooze with honesty and intensity. It's a compelling debut, with the entire cast emotionally invested.‐ Film Inquiry

92% Revenge (2018) In theory it's nothing you haven't seen, but Revenge will make you feel like it is your first time.‐ Film Inquiry

73% Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss By Passing Through the Gateway Chosen By the Holy Storsh (2018) The comedy flickers between playful and obscene, and the story bounces back and forth between strange and absolutely screwed up. It's a reasonable place for this movie to be, and even with it's faults, it's quite hilarious. ‐ Film Inquiry

48% Woman Walks Ahead (2018) Woman Walks Ahead might have its imperfections, but if you are attentive, you'll find it can be rewarding.‐ Film Inquiry

83% In a Relationship (2018) It's difficult to imagine that a rom-com about twenty somethings in LA could bring anything new to the table, but In a Relationship is just charming and funny enough to avoid problematic narratives or clichés.‐ Film Inquiry

27% Zoe (2018) Zoe's main focal point is love, and unfortunately for me, no matter how hard I yearned for a connection, I didn't fall head over heels.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable (2018) Perseverance and courage are powerful themes, and this delivers them in a relatable, spirited package, imbued with the passion of a woman who never lets her misfortunes define her.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet The Great Pretender (2018) The Great Pretender manages to illustrate the irrefutable truth that life and romance is messy, but also quite entertaining.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Little Woods (2018) These are variations on real stories that are happening, right now, and DaCosta is willing you to pay attention. ‐ Film Inquiry

80% Sun Dogs (2017) Morrison made an excellent choice for her debut. You can feel her warmth for the characters in her personal stamp on the story. It adds to this spirited tale of a person overcoming their limitations.‐ Film Inquiry

84% Cargo (2018) There's a tension that's undeniable, and you're rooting for their survival, but you aren't necessarily expecting it.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2018
55% Duck Butter (2018) While some might be expecting shock, the unique Duck Butter ends up being honest and relatable, stripping bare the excess of what we often fear about ourselves and those we are with.‐ Film Inquiry

13% Birthmarked (2018) Neither the children nor the main couple are particularly enthralling, and the talent can't save the weakness of Marc Tulin's and Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais's story. For the most part, it seemed Birthmarked couldn't quite figure out its own identity.‐ Film Inquiry

17% Midnight Sun (2018) I'm a sucker for romance when the shoe fits, and a lot of disappointment came from this film's heavy-handedness. What positive vibes the movie did create were wiped away by the need to produce dramatic finality with cliché-ridden narratives.‐ Film Inquiry

69% Beyond Skyline (2017) While better than its predecessor, Beyond Skyline is still a sequel to a thinly conceived film, and even the freshest coat doesn't work to hide the issues underneath.‐ Film Inquiry

38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) A decade later, astonishingly this throwback is preferable to the original. If you're expecting to be blown away, or biting your nails in consistent apprehension, you'll be let down. Compromise, and you'll be entertained.‐ Film Inquiry

46% Allure (2018) It is a sophisticated debut, taut and melancholy, that is effectually distinguished by the powerhouse performance of Evan Rachel Wood. Her character will floor you.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
0% Dark Crimes (2018) The final sequence of the film provides a jump start, but it's too late to bring it back to life. Dark Crimes is a dreary sort of movie, that lulls you when it should provoke.‐ Film Inquiry

63% Every Day (2018) While the implementation lacks complete sincerity and passion, Every Day is a modicum ahead of some its predecessors. If only there had been more, perhaps I could have fallen in love.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Oh Lucy! (2018) As a whole, Oh Lucy! is an inventive story that's remarkably relatable. What makes the sympathetic Setsuko so wonderfully charming is a combination of Atsuko Hirayanagi's story and direction and Shinobu Terajima's endearing performance.‐ Film Inquiry

37% When We First Met (2018) The script by John Whittington doesn't emphasize on the good enough to save the story from feeling limp. It isn't something you haven't seen, but it may entertain enough for a night in.‐ Film Inquiry

54% The Lodgers (2018) It seems that The Lodgers never quite meets its potential. This is the kind of film that has been done before, better, but that I believe keeps us optimistic for the future of those involved.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
71% Permission (2018) Permission creates a compelling case study of adult relationships. With the direction of Crano he gives us a romantic drama that provides us with a heavy dose of romance, but also focuses on its decline.‐ Film Inquiry

41% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) In the end, Maze Runner: The Death Cure held up its bargain to entertain, while giving these characters a quality send-off. Not without its flaws, there is enough to appreciate if you're willing to look.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
57% The Commuter (2018) The Commuter is a mystery with no real intrigue and a drama without enough substance to cement itself as one of Neeson's best. Amid the rubble there is an entertaining enough film to provide respite during the Winter blues, just don't expect too much.‐ Film Inquiry

58% The Strange Ones (2018) As unsettling as it is, The Strange Ones is also provoking. When the credits roll, it resonates. It is uncertain what's going to happen next to Sam, or if he can ever truly leave his past behind, but we are left wondering.‐ Film Inquiry

36% Devil's Gate (2018) What's frustrating is how Devil's Gate just grazes greatness in a couple areas, missing its mark. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
26% Bright (2017) Bright is a film trying too hard, with an execution that leaves something to be desired. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
74% Mom and Dad (2018) For the most part, Mom and Dad isn't here to provide answers but to shock and awe - effectively doing so.‐ Film Inquiry

92% Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) In his second turn as director and third as writer, S.Craig Zahler again hits us with a sharp script. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
75% Infinity Baby (2017) The skillfully obtuse Infinity Baby withdraws from a usual comic routine and commits to its outrageous nature wholeheartedly.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) The heart of the film is lost by formulaic tendencies and its overbearing insistence on being funny. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
76% Una (2017) This is a necessary, albeit uncomfortable watch with harrowing performances.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
9% Tulip Fever (2017) Tulip Fever is a pretty picture, and it effectively transports you back in time, but once you are there you'll be headed to the exit before you can even smell the tulips. ‐ Film Inquiry

86% 1922 (2017) The slow building dread makes 1922 a movie experience that does its due diligence to fester, just like the body that resides at the center of Wilfred's shame.‐ Film Inquiry
