T-Meter Title | Year
98% Extra Ordinary (2020) Extra Ordinary doesn't feel like it's trying too hard to get laughs, but manages to draw them out with regularity-and, most importantly, the excellent casting. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

100% Mickey and the Bear (2019) When Mickey is finally pushed to action, it's a relief, suffusing Mickey and the Bear with a feeling of hope amid the darkness and transforming a good film into a great one. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

86% Color Out of Space (2020) It has the potential to be the next great (terrible) cult classic, and will definitely find a sympathetic audience in both die-hard Cage fans and D-level horror film enthusiasts. Also, the colors are pretty. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

67% The Wave (2020) Don't think too hard about the plot twists or the rules of Frank's universe, because it will all fall apart. Just buy the ticket, sit back, and enjoy the ride. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

96% Booksmart (2019) This movie really got in there. I never want to go back to high school, but I sure wish I'd been able to watch Booksmart in high school. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

75% Adult Life Skills (2019) The premise of Adult Life Skills isn't remarkable or ground-breaking, but its execution is near impeccable and the result is a film that is quietly poignant, quirkily endearing, and humorous without seeming to try too hard. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

41% Tank Girl (1995) Add an Iggy Pop cameo, an unconventional storytelling style, and a unique stylized look, and you've got a comic-book movie unlike any that came out back then, nor much like the many that have followed in the more than two decades since its release. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

No Score Yet The Empty Hands (2017) Highly entertaining, with a few actual laugh-out-loud moments. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

83% Deadpool 2 (2018) It's offensive as hell. Gory. Ridiculously campy. But it never fails at being laugh out loud hilarious, self-deprecating to the extreme, and often unexpectedly charming and poignant, if in a completely disgusting way. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

No Score Yet A Dragon Arrives! (Ejdeha Vared Mishavad!) (2016) One part cleverly done mockumentary, one part supernatural mystery dosed in light political intrigue, and the result is just as noteworthy for its truly epic landscape shots as it is for the compelling manner in which the story unfolds. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

No Score Yet Orecchie (2016) A fun, absurdist comedy. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT
