Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
93% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) This delightful if overlong film has so many arcs and subplots that you'll find yourself parsing them later... not because they don't work, but because the film packs so many scenes that reward closer-than-normal observation. ‐ The Week

93% The Disaster Artist (2017) If you strip the fiddly premise out, this is an immensely silly movie about an immensely silly person. Watch it. You'll be glad you did.‐ The Week

40% Justice League (2017) That this setup feels both rushed and tedious is a shame, because these figures have potential to be genuinely interesting.‐ The Week

58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Instead of meticulously matching clues to revelations, it turns Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's famous detective, into an unappealingly emotional Holmes.‐ The Week

28% Suburbicon (2017) Suburbicon might be the most contemporary period piece I've ever seen. ‐ The Week

83% Marshall (2017) It's a fascinating and somewhat obscure and laudatory slice of Marshall's professional life, and that's all, and that's fine. But there's room for another Marshall picture.‐ The Week

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) This is a stunning film that somehow makes you homesick for the original.‐ The Week

88% 20th Century Women (2017) 20th Century Women is really more mixtape than movie.‐ The Week

35% The Great Wall (2017) The most important takeaway of The Great Wall is that it doesn't work: not as a defense system, and not as a film.‐ The Week

100% Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2017) The burden of care is on both sides, and so, in Bright Lights, is its beauty.‐ The Week

75% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) [Sense of Ending] is a diffuse and less invasively memoiristic version of the Barnes story. This is a tremendous cast: Walter, Dockery, and Mortimer give great performances here.‐ The Week

71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) By acknowledging the stranger aspects of the original, Bill Condon's live-action adaptation is an appropriately uncomfortable delight.‐ The Week

92% La La Land (2016) For all their crazy chemistry, the stars of Hollywood's new musical, La La Land, don't actually sing or dance all that well. Somewhat surprisingly, this actually makes the movie work.‐ The Week

96% Little Men (2016) Little Men jangles with warmth and loss, and if it tells a story about New York we've heard many times before, the story it tells about childhood - about how people turn a corner and vanish - stings at least as much as it sings.‐ The Week

31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) Resurgence isn't a good movie, but if you're trying to work out what Independence Day means in 2016, that isn't the point.‐ The Week

74% Ghostbusters (2016) [Ghostbusters] is an amazingly apt adaptation that I think improves on its source-text. ‐ The Week

92% Dunkirk (2017) Dunkirk is closer to an art film than a typical war film, and it's certainly the strangest, most ambitious summer blockbuster you're likely to see.‐ The Week

92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming suggests we might be ready to think about youth - which has acquired a reputation for angst and narcissism and basic uselessness - as the superpower it could be.‐ The Week

85% The Incredible Jessica James (2017) But all along, [Jessica Williams'] presence onscreen showed something like star power. And in The Incredible Jessica James, she fulfills that promise.‐ The Week

78% The Beguiled (2017) It may be bold to subtract the genre stuff from your genre piece. But the final product, as mordantly funny as it sometimes is, is only as memorable as Miss Edwina's formally interesting braids are flattering.‐ The Week

18% Baywatch (2017) The new Baywatch is supposed to be a knowing wink to that already winking original, but all that winking adds up. It seems less sly than manic, like it's clobbering you with elbow nudges.‐ The Week

92% Wonder Woman (2017) More than a superhero movie, this is an adventure film, and a really, really good one.‐ The Week

85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One captures and develops the epic yearning and philosophical difficulty of the original series' DNA.‐ The Week

100% Louis C.K.: 2017 (2017) But if 2017 isn't quite as funny as Louis CK has been known to be, it is a fascinating exercise in pretending Trump never happened.‐ The Week

67% Life (2017) Life might not be high art, but it's awesomely effective horror. I'm never watching it again.‐ The Week
