Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/4 33% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) "The first "Independence Day'' was a lot of fun, with a great lines and cutting-edge special effects. It was much imitated, so the sequel plays like a faded, eighth-generation copy with a cast that's shooting blanks when it comes to humor. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 24, 2016
2/4 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "Rendering the Red Baron-fighting Snoopy and way too many supporting characters in 3-D, and placing them in near-photo-realistic backgrounds, drains much of the charm from "The Peanuts Movie." " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 20, 2016
3.5/4 94% Finding Dory (2016) "If there has ever been a better voice performance in an animated film than Ellen DeGeneres' in Pixar's wonderful sequel "Finding Dory," I sure can't think of it. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 16, 2016
0/4 48% Genius (2016) "A few tortured glances from Guy Pearce as Fitzgerald are worth far more than an hour and a half of Law bellowing Wolfe's prose. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 9, 2016
2.5/4 79% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "A mostly satisfying follow-up that brings back the excellent Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren, the real-life paranormal experts most famous for investigating "The Amityville Horror'' house. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 9, 2016
2/4 58% Me Before You (2016) "Unfortunately, this ultra-glossy romantic drama derived from a best seller twists into very dark territory - a drastic tonal shift that neither its stars nor debuting director, Thea Sharrock, a respected stage veteran, manage with dramatic credibility. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 2, 2016
1.5/4 43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) "Parents of 5-year-olds, you have been warned. " ‐ New York Post
Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "It freshens the odd-couple formula with some nice period and father-daughter twists. " ‐ New York Post
Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 55% Money Monster (2016) "A clever financial thriller with comic overtones that's a solid investment of your time thanks to stellar work by George Clooney and Julia Roberts. " ‐ New York Post
Posted May 13, 2016
3/4 97% Dark Horse (2016) "[A] crowd-pleasing documentary ... " ‐ New York Post
Posted May 5, 2016

Posted May 3, 2016
8% Papa: Hemingway in Cuba (2016) "Sluggishly directed by producer Bob Yari ("Crash''), it's based on an autobiographical script by Denne Bart Petitclerc, who died in 2006. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 28, 2016
2.5/4 63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "Patel has his most rewarding role since "Slumdog'' as the passionate Ramanujan, who leaves his wife behind in India and risks his health to prove his critics wrong, leaving a lasting mark on the field. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3/4 77% Elvis & Nixon (2016) ""Elvis & Nixon" is the funniest Nixon movie since 1999's forgotten "Dick." " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/4 84% The Meddler (2016) "Susan Sarandon has one of her juiciest parts in years in Lorene Scafaria's comedy about an overbearing widow, which turns out to be far funnier and more charming than the synopsis suggests. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/4 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) "[Lee] handles the huge, excellent ensemble and tonal shifts with skill as the crew argues about sexism and politics, along the way mocking everyone from President Obama and R. Kelly to Bill Cosby and the Kardashians. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 14, 2016
3/4 91% Green Room (2016) "Saulnier gets lots of laughs and builds plenty of suspense in this effective (if gory) little tongue-in-cheek sleeper. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 14, 2016
2.5/4 48% One More Time (When I Live My Life Over Again) (2016) "One More Time coasts by on Walken's idiosyncratic charm. He has a warm rapport with Heard, and there's solid support from Ann Magnuson as Paul's prickly sixth wife and Oliver Platt as Paul's long-suffering manager. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 8, 2016
2.5/4 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "Cheadle makes the new film worth seeing despite its flaws. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 8, 2016
0.5/4 5% Get a Job (2016) "Crass and painfully unfunny satirical comedy shot four years ago. It's finally receiving a token theatrical release concurrent with being dumped into the video-on-demand sludge pile. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 8, 2016

Posted Apr 8, 2016

Posted Apr 8, 2016
3/4 38% Mr. Right (2016) "Rockwell, who literally dances his way through battle scenes with guns and knives, hasn't had a role this satisfying in years. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Apr 8, 2016
2/4 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "Constantly threatening to collapse from self-seriousness, this epic has way too much of everything, including CGI and Oscar winners up the wazoo. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 22, 2016
2/4 68% Snowtime! (2016) "Aimed at very young audiences, the cheerier remake - with voice work by Sandra Oh as the young architect of a snow fort and a song by CĂ©line Dion - is more distinguished by its charming animation than how it handles the storyline. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 10, 2016
2/4 55% Triple 9 (2016) "There's a blue-chip cast running the gamut from A (Casey Affleck) to W (Kate Winslet) and terrific action sequences in Triple 9 - but in the end, this relentlessly nihilistic crime-caper thriller adds up to less than the sum of its impressive parts. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 10, 2016

Posted Mar 10, 2016
3.5/4 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Director Gavin Hood pulls off some really tricky tonal shifts. He's abetted by a terrific cast, including Barkhad Abdi as a surveillance expert who tries to save the girl -- and Rickman in his final on-screen appearance, one of his very best. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Mar 10, 2016
3/4 43% Forsaken (2016) "Forsaken greatly benefits from the poignant teaming of its father-and-son stars -- as well as Michael Wincott as an especially elegant and eloquent gunfighter who has great respect for John. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 22, 2016
1/4 8% Misconduct (2016) "Some handsome location shooting in New Orleans doesn't make up for the Oscar winners' relentless hamming and a plot that twists way beyond credibility. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Feb 6, 2016
3/4 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Not one of the Coens' major works, but it's a very enjoyable lark, especially for fans of old Hollywood. " ‐ New York Post

Posted Jan 29, 2016
1/4 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "All this hype, and for what? Three hours or so, set mostly in a single room where the unsavory guests and staff trade juvenile and racist insults, periodically murdering each other. I was hoping they'd get it over with already well before the intermission " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 22, 2015
3/4 60% Joy (2015) "Mostly it's up to Lawrence to wring all the drama and pathos she can out of a battle over patent rights that pushes Joy to the brink of bankruptcy. No surprise that her mettle cleans up all the messiness in Joy. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 22, 2015
4/4 92% Grandma (2015) "With not a wasted frame in its taut 80 minutes, this is deserving of your attention as one of the year's best movies even if it's being released in the middle of August. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 15, 2015
1.5/4 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "Warner Bros. would have been better off sticking with the film's original March release date and selling it as a horror movie. " ‐ New York Post

Posted Nov 24, 2015
3.5/4 94% Carol (2015) "Holds back a bit compared to its more melodramatic predecessor. But these are small complaints about a movie containing a trio of truly extraordinary and moving performances from Blanchett, Mara and Paulson that place it among the year's best. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 22, 2015
4/4 96% Back to the Future (1985) "Zemeckis and Gale have cannily chosen the time periods, which are funny as much for their similarities (political and materalistic) as their contrasts (music, fashions, language). " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 21, 2015

Posted Oct 6, 2015
3/4 80% You're a Big Boy Now (1966) "It's clear Coppola had storytelling talent to burn, and this whimsically sweet movie is certainly one of the best Manhattan time capsules from that era. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 3, 2015
3/4 86% Steve Jobs (2015) "I came away with the feeling that the filmmakers were practically implying that his early death at 56 was some kind of karmic payback. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 3, 2015
3/4 85% The Walk (2015) "Zemeckis finally delivers the goods in abundance in the section that really counts: A vertigo-inducing digital re-creation of Petit's famous walk back and forth between the towers. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 29, 2015
