Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4.5/5 71% Crimson Peak (2015) Crimson Peak definitely doesn't disappoint as a fun, scary piece of cinematic entertainment.‐ The Mary Sue

8.5/10 88% My Scientology Movie (2017) ... on its small scale it is one of the most entertaining and fun documentary watches in years.‐ The Young Folks

2/5 39% Jane Got a Gun (2016) This isn't a terrible movie; it certainly isn't the train wreck bomb of a release I've heard it described as. It just isn't anything great or especially engaging worth recommending.‐ The Mary Sue

4.5/5 76% Band Of Robbers (2016) Don't be surprised to hear more from the Nee brothers in the future, especially if Adam Nee continues his fine work in front of the camera as well. They clearly are a talented duo.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 10% Point Break (2015) The crew are almost impossible to differentiate and barely have their own personalities.‐ The Mary Sue

0.5/5 19% Love the Coopers (2015) There was something about Love the Coopers that didn't just leave me cold and disappointed... it also made me mad.‐ The Mary Sue

2.5/5 34% By The Sea (2015) This movie would have been a lot better if it weren't so concerned with being beautiful or important.‐ The Mary Sue

2.5/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) Mockingjay Part 2's gloomy, monotone approach makes this feel like an exhausting obligation to sit through.‐ The Mary Sue

2.5/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) These characters are, as we are told from the outset, all hateful... and they aren't interesting or dynamic enough to overcome that fact.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) Just because a movie is downbeat or depressing doesn't make it deeper than movies with more style. Sometimes it makes a movie downright shallow.‐ The Mary Sue

4/5 77% The Good Dinosaur (2015) A quality family film and well-made Pixar movie.‐ The Mary Sue

4.5/5 95% Creed (2015) The movie as a whole is still excellent and well worth seeking out -- even if you don't really care about boxing or Rocky.‐ The Mary Sue

4.5/5 94% Carol (2015) What Haynes gets so perfectly right with this film really is the very specific sense of time and place.‐ The Mary Sue

2.5/5 65% Krampus (2015) A little of that Christmas spirit that it talks about could have saved it from mediocrity.‐ The Mary Sue

5/5 93% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) I've been sold on the rich possibilities of these new movies. I'm letting the Force in this time.‐ The Mary Sue

2.5/5 59% Joy (2015) Joy ends up feeling like a missed opportunity.‐ The Mary Sue
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2017
1.5/5 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) It almost feels like the filmmaker was yelling "this isn't your mom's Jane Austen!" without realizing there's a lot going for Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice (and zombies) that we still like.‐ The Mary Sue

0.5/5 15% Gods Of Egypt (2016) It clearly seems to have been made with the desire of making something of quality that just fails spectacularly, and there are definitely some unintentionally laughable moments -- actually a lot of them.‐ The Mary Sue

0.5/5 45% Knight of Cups (2016) [Malick] confuses grim misery with depth in his work.‐ The Mary Sue

1.5/5 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) This movie goes a good hour before it gets any big laughs.‐ The Mary Sue

3/5 91% The Witch (2016) The Witch is a solid, compelling, thought-provoking movie. ‐ The Mary Sue

4/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) If Llewyn Davis was about an artist learning to appreciate and collaborate with his audience, this reminds us that before the Coens were movie makers, they were movie watchers.‐ The Mary Sue

3/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) The big, silly stuff that gets played out with absolute commitment to the X-Men world makes for pretty delightful moments.‐ The Mary Sue

3.5/10 38% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) The movie doesn't stand out at all though and what's worse, has the feeling of a movie that feels it didn't have to.‐ The Young Folks

98% The Babadook (2014) I can't think of a movie since Rosemary's Baby which acknowledges the unspoken fears of motherhood with such humor, horror, and compassion.‐ The Mary Sue

87% Gone Girl (2014) Is Fincher himself sexist? No. I don't think so. Could Gone Girl appeal to and feed a growing tendency in society to justify the idea of women as threat? Absolutely.‐ The Mary Sue

5/10 45% The Hollars (2016) In many ways, The Hollars feels like a bit of nostalgia of the 90s independent movement when studios supported little movies and intimate, personal storytelling was praised as refreshing.‐ The Young Folks

3/10 58% Bad Moms (2016) I'm grateful that Hollywood has realized that female audiences are among comedy fans and are under-served, that doesn't mean they should be forced to settle for garbage‐ The Young Folks

7/10 88% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) The movie may be imperfect, but it still feels like an important cinematic experience worth having, and therefore worth seeing.‐ The Young Folks

4 1/2/5 97% The Dark Horse (2016) This year, Disney bypassed the feel-good sports movie, and luckily for U.S. audiences, we got a smaller but better version with The Dark Horse.‐ The Mary Sue

5/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) The story is a classic and familiar one, but the ability the movie has to submerge its audience in both the visuals and story is a remarkable accomplishment that makes it stand out as a worthy blockbuster. ‐ The Mary Sue

1/5 6% Mother's Day (2016) I did have to issue a warning to my mother in case she planned a movie night out with friends or her sisters this holiday weekend: If you're going to see something for Mother's Day ... don't see Mother's Day.‐ The Mary Sue

4/5 98% Love & Friendship (2016) t seems to me, if you like Whit Stillman's films, you probably love them. If you truly dislike his humor and preoccupation with the bourgeois lifestyle's preoccupation with codes of conduct, Love & Friendship might just not be your cup of tea. ‐ The Mary Sue

1/5 15% The Curse of Sleeping Beauty (2016) Sleeping Beauty is a snoozefest. ‐ The Mary Sue

3/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) Any sequel for a successful movie is a challenge, but comedies seem to have the most difficulty pulling them off. The comedy sequel is rare compared to horror and action movies.‐ The Mary Sue

5/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) The Nice Guys is the first great comedy of the summer.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 22% Ma ma (2016) Ma Ma suffers from melodrama without catharsis. ‐ The Mary Sue

4/5 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Captain America: Civil War is good, but too stuffed to be great.‐ The Mary Sue

5/10 46% Free State of Jones (2016) The problem is, almost every "journey" McConaughey takes feels like it is being told from a different directorial approach, but there's no logic in how all these tie together‐ The Young Folks

3.5/10 28% Warcraft (2016) This is Duncan Jones' first big studio movie and I wouldn't be surprised if it's his last.‐ The Young Folks

2.5/5 84% Deadpool (2016) The cynicism is so blatant and unpleasant, but seemingly pointed at nothing, that I found it draining to watch.‐ The Mary Sue
