Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
D 62% The Tribes of Palos Verdes (2017) "The Tribes of Palos Verdes" privileges melodrama over nuance, pitting skilled actors against a humdrum script and sketchy roles.‐ The Playlist

D+ 89% Set It Up (2018) Not only does "Set It Up" deny straight female viewers a fantasy in which men genuinely respect women, the film tells straight women that a douchebag is the best they deserve. ‐ The Playlist

A- 85% Nancy (2018) Nancy is an assured and genius debut from first-time feature director Christina Choe. Much like its protagonist, the film is an enigmatic and wholly original take.‐ The Playlist

92% Revenge (2018) Though the film makes a valiant effort to subvert a sexist formula by shrouding itself in French art film trappings and pseudo-empowering femininity, it ultimately falls prey to its exploitative roots.‐ Slate

C+ 38% Life of the Party (2018) Physical comedy and accidental drug-taking are all well and good, but at this point, they're modern staples of the genre that Life of the Party does little to reinvent.‐ The Playlist

D+ 33% Zoe (2018) You'd be better served just watching the most sexist bits from The Island and calling it a day.‐ The Playlist

B+ 86% Song of Back and Neck (2018) Song of Back and Neck is worth a watch-even if you'll scratch your head more often than you'll laugh.‐ The Playlist

29% Mapplethorpe (2018) This zoetrope-esque blurring ultimately lends Mapplethorpe its edge, as audiences will feel unable to tear themselves away from its protagonist's lavish self-destruction.‐ Slate

C 20% Terminal (2018) In the alternate universe where I don't care about misogyny and I decided to watch this movie on mute, it's probably one of the best things I've seen all year.‐ The Playlist

100% Roll Red Roll (2018) Documentaries don't usually horrify the oxygen out of me, but I found myself gulping for air more than once during Roll Red Roll.‐ Slate

55% Duck Butter (2018) If you can step outside of your comfort zone, like Shawkat and Costa demonstrate with their brazen performances, this is worth a watch.‐ Slate

B 86% Wobble Palace (2018) When all's said and done, "Wobble Palace" is trying so hard you can't help but like it.‐ The Playlist

C+ 84% First Match (2018) "First Match" is a culturally significant, capably-crafted film, but it leans on safe familiarities when it should seek risky rewards.‐ The Playlist

D+ 38% When We First Met (2018) Though the 2017-set protagonist of "When We First Met" jumps to and from 2014, this regressive rom-com would be better set in 1985.‐ The Playlist

B- 92% Saturday Church (2018) In many ways, this Tribeca competitor is a must-watch, but too many missteps keep it from realizing its iconic potential.‐ The Playlist

B 100% Mr. Roosevelt (2017) This film might not blow you away, but it is unique, and it will make you laugh. And ultimately, that's all you really need from an indie comedy.‐ The Playlist
