T-Meter Title | Year
42% Capone (2020) For better or for worse, Tom Hardy gives it his all in Capone, but the film is just too aimless and uncomfortable to be a worthwhile viewing experience. - Culturess EDIT

93% Becoming (2020) In spite of its relative shallowness, Becoming is still well worth the watch thanks to its inspiring leading lady, beautiful music, and gripping narrative of the struggles and triumphs of being the first Black woman to serve as first lady. - Culturess EDIT

68% Extraction (2020) In the end, Extraction is a solid film if you're looking for action, but falls flat in terms of both character, premise, and performance. - Culturess EDIT

56% The Hunt (2020) The horror-comedy The Hunt isn't as clever or controversial as it thinks it is, but Betty Gilpin's committed performance makes it solid B-movie fun. - Culturess EDIT

91% The Invisible Man (2020) Sharp camerawork and a dedicated performance from Elizabeth Moss make The Invisible Man a paranoia-filled nail-biter that revitalizes a classic story for a new generation. - Culturess EDIT

74% The Photograph (2020) Despite the fact that on paper the two running storylines should give audiences more than enough to stay interested, The Photograph never takes off or feels particularly urgent. - Culturess EDIT

78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) In the end, while Birds of Prey is a step in the right direction for DC in terms of tone and character, it's still a little too jumbled and hectic to truly be a home run. - Culturess EDIT

75% The Gentlemen (2020) A gaggle of strong performances from the likes of Hugh Grant and Charlie Hunnam makes Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen worth watching, even if it feels like a retread of old material. - Culturess EDIT

95% Little Women (2019) While it may seem impossible to so incredibly emulate such a staple of American literature, Greta Gerwig's incarnation of Little Women is as close to a film can get to being a perfect adaptation. - Culturess EDIT

52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) There is so little emotional value or purpose to the story as a whole that the conclusion just feels like a shallow imitation of the groundbreaking franchise so many hold dear. - Culturess EDIT

71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Jumanji: The Next Level has enough committed performances and funny moments to make it a worthy sequel, even if it's a little shaky at times. - Culturess EDIT

52% 21 Bridges (2019) 21 Bridges is a forgettable cop thriller full of missed opportunities and bland characters, which is a disappointing turnout considering just how much talent there is both onscreen and behind the camera. - Culturess EDIT

51% Charlie's Angels (2019) An engaging, action-packed, and at times genuinely funny movie. - Culturess EDIT

46% Last Christmas (2019) There's a certain odd charm to Last Christmas that elevates it beyond the standard holiday date-night fare. - Culturess EDIT

84% Villains (2019) Although it doesn't quite realize the potential insanity that is frequently hinted at, Villains is still a bizarre and refreshing outing to the movies that will leave you satisfied if you're looking for a break from summer blockbusters. - Culturess EDIT

80% Good Boys (2019) Good Boys is an undeniable win. - Culturess EDIT

67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Refreshingly, Hobbs and Shaw is a movie that knows exactly what it is: an action-packed star vehicle full of punchy dialogue and great chemistry. - Culturess EDIT
