T-Meter Title | Year
65% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Annabelle may be the most evil doll in horror right now, but so far anyways she still plays and slays old school style, and for this homecoming it works. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

63% Yesterday (2019) Yesterday still succeeds thanks to the zestful pacing of director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting) and effective performances by pretty much all the actors involved. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

A 88% LA Originals (2020) Beyond the lowrider and street art scenes, it is the images of the barrio and gang hangs in L.A. that resonate and provide a reflection of real life in LA Originals. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

B 70% Trolls World Tour (2020) Even more than the original, Trolls World Tour, is a rainbow-swathed, glitter-drenched escape from reality, and it provides the full-on fantastical at-home experience that many families are probably craving right now. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

B+ 33% The Wrong Missy (2020) Lauren Lapkus steals the show here as a woman whose lack of boundaries, filters and self-restraint make for a full and shockingly funny take on life that's so "wrong," it's right. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

B- 87% Shirley (2020) This slow-burning psychological thriller is meant to reflect its subject's work so if you're not familiar with the writer (Shirley Jackson), it might come off as needlessly predacious and ugly. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

B- 70% The High Note (2020) During quarantine you could do worse than streaming this movie, and that's mostly thanks to Tracy Ross, who brings her usual warmth and likability to the proceedings. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

A 92% Da 5 Bloods (2020) This tale of former Vietnam vets who return to the land where they battled years ago to retrieve a fallen soldier's body (and some stashed gold) is visually enticing and full of riveting performances. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

89% You Don't Nomi (2020) If you're a hardcore Showgirls nerd and want to hear like-minded dissect the heck out of it, this one's a must-see, but if you're not, maybe pass and just watch the fleshy flick itself one more time. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

B 88% AKA Jane Roe (2020) [It] probably won't change minds on either side of the abortion issue, but as the case continues to be in danger of getting overturned, AKA Jane Roe's unflinching look at the complexities of the issue should resonate regardless. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

38% Black Christmas (2019) The choice to go PG-13 on the gore and thrill level for this reboot makes it feel more like a TV movie than a feature film. Still, it was probably the right choice for the intended audience. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

14% Dolittle (2020) There's a lot of big name voices in Dolittle, the whimsical new adventure starring Robert Downey Jr. as the famed doc who talks to animals, but unfortunately they are as wasted as one might expect. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Director Cathy Yan and producer/star [Margot] Robbie have brought something fresh, and uniquely feminist to DC's cinematic universe, creating a chaotic yet zesty comics-style spectacle that's exactly the killer escape at the movies it intends to be. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

44% The Addams Family (2019) All the casting here, like the film itself, feels too marketing driven, and the latter is obviously an excuse for a bad hip-hop remix of the classic TV show theme song. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Even without a proper narrative, this star-powered vehicle works. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

87% Hustlers (2019) Wu is supposed to be the moral center, but there's a disconnect in her acting that doesn't quite hit the spot. - L.A. Weekly EDIT
