Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
47% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Much like the teens at the center, Power Rangers goes through some awkward growing pains in real time trying to figure out what movie it wants to be or even should be.‐ Associated Press

56% Song to Song (2017) Malick's just doing his own thing. Everyone's still running to catch up with what he did in the '70s. He's already on another planet.‐ Associated Press

79% Personal Shopper (2017) Bizarre but transfixing.‐ Associated Press

19% Table 19 (2017) How fun it might have been if these misfits had a modicum of comedic chemistry with one another, or actually seemed like real humans. Instead, they're all half-baked "types."‐ Associated Press

69% Contemporary Color (2017) Maybe it'll remind some of their long lost high school passions, but the most remarkable thing about these youngsters is what happens when they're on the stage moving in tandem in an eye-popping swirl of sequins and flags.‐ Associated Press

98% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) Baldwin's words, Jackson's reading and Peck's elegant and scorching composition will resonate for years to come.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Both John Wick films are sendups of the tasteless excess of B-action pics and all-out celebrations of their vulgarity. Chapter 2 is the best one could hope for in an action sequel, and it doesn't even have the "killed the puppy" gimmick on its side.‐ Associated Press

76% Split (2017) Split isn't a disaster; it's just all over the place and not nearly as effective as it should be for something with such a good premise and performances.‐ Associated Press

35% Live By Night (2017) It was always going to be a tricky thing to follow up a smash like Argo, so taut and smart and thrilling. Affleck went maximalist with Live by Night, and it was, indeed, too much.‐ Associated Press

98% Little Men (2016) Its smallness makes it grand and moving. These are the things, these little moments, decisions and consequences that most human lives are made of, after all.‐ Associated Press

92% Certain Women (2016) As with all of Reichardt's films, the gems are in the smallest moments -- the half smiles, the non-reactions and the silences between two people barely connecting.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Dec 30, 2016
99% Don't Think Twice (2016) A deeply sincere and literate coming-of-age tale.‐ Associated Press

85% Silence (2017) While I'm still not sure what Scorsese wants the audience to think by the time the screen goes to black, the questions raised nonetheless feel modern and resonant.‐ Associated Press

17% Assassin's Creed (2016) In the end, the real mystery has little to do with the Assassins, the Templars or the Apple of Eden and more to do with why so many talented thespians thought this was a good idea.‐ Associated Press

85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One is a bold and stirring adventure film that will have both fans and casual observers spellbound.‐ Associated Press

96% Neruda (2016) Not many directors get a one-two punch like Jackie and Neruda in the same season, but it just makes it all the more clear that Larrain is one of the world's most exciting and imaginative filmmakers, whatever the subject may be.‐ Associated Press

71% Miss Sloane (2016) Crafted in a different climate about a still-relevant issue, it should have been more resonant. Instead, through no fault of its own, it already feels woefully out of date.‐ Associated Press

95% Moana (2016) [Moana] is an excellent character with spirit, doubts, drive and a heck of a voice. She is a perfect addition to the roster of modern Disney heroines and one whom young girls will admire for years to come, princess or not.‐ Associated Press

96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) It's hard to overstate the magnificence of Kenneth Lonergan's Manchester by the Sea.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Sure, some of it is cliche... Perhaps it should have stayed lighter. But The Edge of Seventeen also has enough good that it might just become a new classic in the high school comedy genre.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2016
46% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) The film isn't perfect, and certainly not Lee's strongest... But there's also a looking-down-at-your-own-life quality to the entire experiment.‐ Associated Press

74% Trolls (2016) Ultimately, the "get happy" moral of the story, while trite compared to something like Inside Out, is sufficiently sweet enough for its audience. Did you expect more from a piece of candy?‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
92% The Eagle Huntress (2016) It's a wholesome lark that you'll want to show your daughters and sons.‐ Associated Press

97% Moonlight (2016) Hopefully it doesn't take Jenkins another eight years to make a film. But we can take comfort in the very strong likelihood that, even if it does, it will be well worth the wait.‐ Associated Press

71% The Birth of a Nation (2016) The Birth of a Nation is a fine and promising debut from Parker, who also co-wrote and produced. It also feels very much like a first film, too, unable to reach the lofty artistry that it's striving for.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2016
84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Deepwater Horizon achieves that impossible balance of being a tribute to the workers who both perished and survived that day and a searing critique of the rotten system that put them there in the first place.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) You could do worse than putting it all in the capable hands of Denzel Washington, with some help from Chris Pratt.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
3/4 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) This movie, for all its comedic ridiculousness and wild circumstance of the paternity crisis, is a jubilant celebration of women.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2016
3/4 80% Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016) A fascinating peek into one of the wildest literary scandals in recent years and the bizarre nature of celebrity relationships.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) The Light Between Oceans is stunning to see, and the performances are of the highest caliber, but it's all packaged in a story that just doesn't earn its stay, or our tears.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2016
45% Hands of Stone (2016) Ramirez is solidly compelling as Duran, the complicated pit bull that he is, but the audience is kept at a distance and isn't given an opportunity to truly empathize.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2016
60% War Dogs (2016) It's an entertaining lark when it could have been a shattering indictment -- of America, of these dudes and the military industrial complex.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2016
83% Sausage Party (2016) There is no one out there making comedies quite like Rogen and Goldberg. They are putting their definitive stamp on the modern American comedy one decency-smashing double entendre at a time.‐ Associated Press

3/5 83% Captain Fantastic (2016) It's a single, beautifully realised vision with edge and a true heart.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
58% Bad Moms (2016) Bad Moms had so many opportunities to be great, edgy and insightful, but instead settles for the most milquetoast commentary possible on modern motherhood.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
69% The Infiltrator (2016) For such an extraordinary story, The Infiltrator, from director Brad Furman, feels very by the books.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2016
83% Captain Fantastic (2016) The casting director should win an award for finding these truly excellent young performers, who shine alongside the always wonderful Mortensen.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2016
75% The BFG (2016) There's a melancholy hanging over the film, too -- that it's [Melissa] Mathison's final screenwriting credit. It's also a lovely exit for a woman who always knew to never write down to her audience, children or not.‐ Associated Press

31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) The plot is a big jumble of story lines, nonsense science talk and lots of "in '96" references. Speaking of '96, there's nothing even remotely as thrilling or memorable as the first here.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
47% Free State of Jones (2016) The Civil War and reconstruction were messy, and Free State of Jones wants to tackle it all. In the end, it's too much for any one film to handle compellingly with such specificity.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2016
69% Central Intelligence (2016) Central Intelligence, a buddy action-comedy starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, doesn't pack many big laughs, but it is likely to keep a smile on your face for the duration.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2016
1/4 38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" is a Saturday morning cartoon on Michael Bay steroids. For the under 12 set, that's fine. For the rest of us? It's something to actively avoid.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2016
1.5/4 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) The Alice stories could be so wonderful on the big screen. Maybe it's time for Disney to scrap all this, and start again.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 24, 2016
43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) Ultimately, The Angry Birds Movie does a decent job exploring the merits of anger. It's no Inside Out, but it has heart and life, which isn't too shabby for any film -- app or not.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 16, 2016
57% Money Monster (2016) Money Monster might not be a great movie, but it is a comforting movie-movie that's still fun to watch even if it whiffed on being something more.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 12, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Marvel makes it funny, and that charm and care is what has and will keep audiences coming back over and over again.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 2, 2016
79% The Family Fang (2016) Smart modern literary adaptations can too often get bogged down in whimsy. The Family Fang plays it straight, knowing that the story is peculiar enough on its own.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2016
17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) There is a decent movie buried in here somewhere, but with such powerhouse actresses, it's dismaying that it feels so regressive from the first.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2016
95% The Jungle Book (2016) The Jungle Book is one of the stronger of Disney's live-action adaptations. It's a true family-friendly adventure that's smart and often thrilling.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2016
52% Demolition (2016) As it stands, Demolition doesn't quite come together, but it's far from a wreck.‐ Associated Press
