Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

3/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) You know what? Superhero cynicism aside, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is really fun.‐ Associated Press

94% 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

94% 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

48% 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

88% 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

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

54% 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

50% 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

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
60% 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
43% 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
80% Personal Shopper (2017) Bizarre but transfixing.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
23% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
68% 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
75% 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
34% 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
97% 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
99% Don't Think Twice (2016) A deeply sincere and literate coming-of-age tale.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2016
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
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
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
45% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
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
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2016
98% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
72% 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 81% 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
59% 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
82% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2016
3/5 83% Captain Fantastic (2016) It's a single, beautifully realised vision with edge and a true heart.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)
