Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
98% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) "Thor: Ragnarok" is the most fun of the Thor movies by a long shot, but it is still very much a Thor movie for better or worse.‐ Associated Press

70% Wonderstruck (2017) For a kid in this age of digital devices and content disconnected from experience, Wonderstruck could be its own sort of treasure.‐ Associated Press

97% The Florida Project (2017) ... Dafoe's warm and generous performance is simply astonishing.‐ Associated Press

31% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) Mark Felt the movie just never rises to the level of its own story.‐ Associated Press

96% Stronger (2017) That Stronger, as unpleasant as it is, doesn't shy away from the complicated side of recovery is admirable to say the least.‐ Associated Press

84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) A fairly standard, if unexceptional film that has two major things going for it: Emma Stone and timeliness.‐ Associated Press

69% mother! (2017) My heart has not stopped its anxious pounding, nor my head from spinning since seeing this film.‐ Associated Press

85% It (2017) Instead of building tension and suspense, It just jumps from scene to scares with no connection or coherence to thread them together other than the mere fact that they've been placed on top of one-another, like toys mixed up from different sets.‐ Associated Press

3/4 83% Beach Rats (2017) There are no clear answers here for Frankie or for us, which might not be satisfying but is no less poignant.‐ Associated Press

37% Leap! (2017) "LEAP!" is a fine-enough background movie and one young kids might very well take to, but it's just mystifying how lazily the story components seem to have been put together. . .‐ Associated Press

93% Logan Lucky (2017) Flaws aside, it is a darn good heist, and sure to leave you with a smile on your face. We should be glad Soderbergh is back, hopefully this time for good.‐ Associated Press

82% Detroit (2017) It's hard to overstate just how visceral and harrowing an experience it is. Detroit is a well-made and evocative film that is also numbingly brutal with little to no reprieve.‐ Associated Press

10% The Emoji Movie (2017) The good news is The Emoji Movie, co-written and directed by Tony Leondis, is not evil. The bad news is it's just mediocre, or in emoji parlance, simply "meh."‐ Associated Press

92% Dunkirk (2017) Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a stone cold masterpiece. It's a stunningly immersive survival film told in 106 thrillingly realized minutes.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2017
3/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) You know what? Superhero cynicism aside, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is really fun.‐ Associated Press

93% Baby Driver (2017) There's nothing like an epic getaway chase to kick a movie into high gear, and the first five minutes of Baby Driver are pure movie magic.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Regardless of what happens or doesn't happen next for the Planet of the Apes, this installment is very simply a great time at the movies.‐ Associated Press

98% The Big Sick (2017) Some stories are too good to be true, and some true stories are too good for the movies. Luckily for us, The Big Sick is neither.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
46% Rough Night (2017) There are some wild moments... and some of them are fun. I just wish they weren't in service of a throwaway gimmick that is too dark to stomach.‐ Associated Press

89% It Comes At Night (2017) Shults, in only his second feature following his splashy debut with the family psychodrama Krisha, stylishly and effectively builds tension and mystery in this stripped-down experiment that crescendos occasionally into the stuff of nightmares.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2017
92% Wonder Woman (2017) Like the heroine at its center, Wonder Woman the movie rises with powerful grace above the noise. It's not perfect, but it's often good, sometimes great and exceptionally re-watchable.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 29, 2017
53% War Machine (2017) This might not be the classic modern military satire that we needed, but it is a start -- and an unflinching one at that.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
20% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) A deeply unfunny family road trip film that has gross out jokes to rival the R-rated Vacation remake.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Despite a shameless non-ending that hints at sequel possibilities, this is not a film that is likely to stick with you even past the movie theater parking lot. Like Arthur, you'll be happy that you got alive and relatively unscathed.‐ Associated Press

51% The Dinner (2017) The performances are first rate -- nuanced and lived in from the first moments of performative civility to the shattering barbs thrown by the end -- even if the women are given the comparatively short stick here.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 2, 2017
50% The Promise (2017) It's unfair to critique such an utterly sincere film that does contain some riveting action and acting and even might inspire some to learn more about this moment in history, but unfortunately, the story just doesn't live up to its grand ambitions.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
92% A Quiet Passion (2017) While the visuals and steady shots are often relaxing, at the heart is a searing and soulful performance of an anguished artist born into the wrong time.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2017
88% Their Finest (2017) Inspiring, funny and genuinely romantic, Their Finest is a solid, refreshing crowd-pleaser.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2017
61% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Look past the sepia and the dreary title, The Zookeeper's Wife is riveting both inspiring and comes as a welcome reminder in this time of uncertainty that even in the face of astonishing evil, humanity and goodness can also rise to the occasion.‐ Associated Press

44% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2017
42% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
79% Personal Shopper (2017) Bizarre but transfixing.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
25% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
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
89% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
74% 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
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
96% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 30, 2016
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
98% Don't Think Twice (2016) A deeply sincere and literate coming-of-age tale.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2016
84% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2016
18% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
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
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
94% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
75% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2016
96% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2016
95% 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
