Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
93% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) There are also quite a few new creatures, among them various icicle dogs, turtle-face monks, and some impossibly cute thingies called Porgs, which look as if they nest in gift shops at night.‐ Reason Online

90% I, Tonya (2017) An uneven biopic that's both violent and funny, and, in the end, surprisingly moving.‐ Reason Online

93% The Disaster Artist (2017) Not a lot unlike watching The Room itself...‐ Reason Online

40% Justice League (2017) Every one of the many, many sky-fights, mega-booms, and fantasy landscapes on display here seems to have been purchased at an FX fire sale back in the 1980s. ‐ Reason Online

58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) The person I most wanted to see murdered on the Orient Express was the central character.‐ Reason Online

99% Lady Bird (2017) Most memorably, in a movie that's memorable in just about every regard, there's a compact sex scene that illuminates a whole interior world of desire and values.‐ Reason Online

92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) ...about half of a pretty great movie. ‐ Reason Online

80% Tragedy Girls (2017) This must have been a nifty elevator pitch: two enterprising teens with a true-crime website decide to start providing their own content.‐ Reason Online

8% The Snowman (2017) All these sinister snowmen-are we in some sort of dark Pillsbury universe here?‐ Reason Online

93% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) All hail Adam Sandler...‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2017
87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) When Leto uttered the line "You do not know what pain is yet," I wondered if it had been re-purposed from Hellraiser.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
87% American Made (2017) The movie has a nice, low-key amiability, and it finally puts Tom Cruise back in synch with his talent.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) A little too much of a good thing again...‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
68% mother! (2017) The lack of real characters leaves us to contemplate the movie's thick Biblical underbrush, its familiar environmental messaging, and its escalating surges of noise and nastiness. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
85% It (2017) A horror movie that grabs you right out of the gate. By the throat.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
25% Unlocked (2017) Putting a woman at the center of the action might've sounded bold three years ago, but now it's a little late-Atomic Blonde kicks this movie's butt all over the lot.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
82% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) Jung is a director for whom too much is always just the right amount-a compliment, of course.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
93% Logan Lucky (2017) This picture suggests a great director easing back into the feature-film game.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
91% Good Time (2017) Watching Pattinson here, we realize that we've never met this actor before-where has he been?‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
83% Detroit (2017) There are a few interludes that would seem ripe for trimming in a movie that runs nearly two and a half hours.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
77% Atomic Blonde (2017) Some of the most impressive bone-cracking you're likely to have seen since...well, since the last John Wick movie.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
92% Dunkirk (2017) Communicates the dislocations of war in a powerful new way, and will likely be mumbled over by film-school scholars for years to come. How many non-scholars will be wanting to see it a second time we will soon discover.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) A work of blockbuster art that carries its huge budget lightly. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Another bleedin' Spider-Man movie, you say?‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
77% The Little Hours (2017) The Little Hours is stocked with smart, funny, attractive actors, and it doesn't take long for you to start wondering what they're doing in this slow-going comedy. ‐ Reason Online

98% The Big Sick (2017) Nanjiani's face has an Old Hollywood repose, but his eyes can melt into pools of concern with barely a flicker of transition.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2017
21% The Book of Henry (2017) Cancer kids and schoolgirl sex abuse aren't usually thought to be the stuff of mirth, and yet some people sitting behind me at a screening of this were barking like seals.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
16% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy isn't a failure, exactly. In order to fail at something, one must try to do it well in the first place.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
92% Wonder Woman (2017) Gadot is a gift to a genre that was long past the point of beginning to feel seriously depleted.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
30% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Over the course of 14 years of playing this character, Depp has run out of new things to do with his performance, and is now pretty much emailing it in.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
68% Alien: Covenant (2017) The movie is a little underwhelming in its over-familiarity. But Scott manages to make all the customary creature mayhem feel hair-raisingly fresh. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
29% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) The movie's few good moments are crushed by Ritchie's trademark 10-ton stylistic overkill. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
37% Snatched (2017) This is in fact a funny movie. Schumer once again segues easily from sweet vulnerability to whiny irritation, and once again puts her own delectable spin on girly raunch. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Still lively and likeable, despite the sprawling techno-bloat and general over-stuffing. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
16% The Circle (2017) This ugly digital future is less disturbing than it might have been, because in many ways it's already arrived.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
25% Unforgettable (2017) I know any mention of Heigl will set off sirens of alarm in some moviegoers, but she's given little latitude for annoyance here, being largely confined to a single facial expression of steely whack-job malice. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Has none of the rousing cheap thrills that might have lured a blockbuster audience -- although one shot, of a terrified explorer running toward the camera with angry natives chasing behind, heavily suggests Raiders of the Lost Ark.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
80% Colossal (2017) The movie grows dark and sour, and its tone, soon trashed, never recovers.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) It's an interesting film to watch. It's just hard to care about a single thing that's going on in it.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
67% Life (2017) Effective in a rote way, a few icky shocks, but probably not exactly what you seek.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) ...like being held down and force-fed candy for two hours. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Good grief, Kong again? ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
93% Logan (2017) The picture sounds a deep human note that might be what you'll remember most fondly when looking back on it.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
99% Get Out (2017) ...plays like an instant classic.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) So what's this lumbering oddity all about? I'm afraid it's about two and a half hours long.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) There's more detail about Wick's secret world here, more pulp fun. Maybe more dead bodies, too, but who can keep track of that?‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
58% War on Everyone (2017) A buddy-cop movie that's been dropped on its head.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
43% Gold (2017) Even Matthew McConaughey in full hyper-overdrive can't make it very interesting.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2017
83% The Founder (2017) It's all ripe for standard Hollywood mockery, but director John Lee Hancock doesn't quite play it that way.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
80% Patriots Day (2017) A tense and tightly edited police procedural that never sinks to cheap emotional manipulation of the awful event at its center.‐ Reason Online
