Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/5 95% The Florida Project (2017) A scripted drama with the unflinching, unjudging eye of a documentary...‐ Seven Days

4/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Just as carefreeness requires effort, so "growing up" never ends.‐ Seven Days

2.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) More relatable than its predecessor but no more spell-binding, Justice League races through its paces and ends: four hours of exposition and posturing stuffed in a two-hour package.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Every twist the plot takes is dark and absurd; some could make viewers gasp in horror and laugh at once.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Marvel continues to remind us that being an ethical, self-realized human is more important than being a superhuman.‐ Seven Days

1.5/5 28% Suburbicon (2017) Trying to tell two stories, Suburbicon ends up telling none at all.‐ Seven Days

1.5/5 13% Geostorm (2017) ... predictable twists, stock characters and an all-too-parsimonious serving of catastrophe.‐ Seven Days

2.5/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) If only this movie were as smart as its inspiration.‐ Seven Days

4.5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) ... a big-budget genre movie that respects its audience's intelligence, and an homage that adds something beautifully new.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) It may be tempting to say that Ingrid Goes West, the feature directorial debut of Matt Spicer, will be obsolete in a few years, but its themes are far older than the "like" button.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 79% Brigsby Bear (2017) By turns funny, uplifting and a little queasy-making, the film sustains that tension for a while - before, ultimately, taking a too-predictable route.‐ Seven Days

4/5 68% mother! (2017) Mother! is likely to have divided the audience into the angrily alienated, the cultishly devoted and the simply baffled.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2/5 10% Tulip Fever (2017) The film flails around trying to convince us it's depicting a heady, madcap, passionate time in its characters' lives. Somehow, though, it all feels about as exciting as a stroll through a tulip garden.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
4/5 96% The Women's Balcony (Ismach Hatani) (2017) The Women's Balcony resolves its central conflict a bit too quickly and neatly, but the theme of battle for the soul of a community resonates - at least with many American critics, who have praised the movie's "universal" themes.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) While it's overlong and sometimes disjointed, this heist flick delivers genuinely likable characters, winning performances and solid laughs.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
3/5 69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) milks maximum chills from the material and his actors, though he can't overcome a script in which people repeatedly do stupid things for no reason.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
5/5 90% A Ghost Story (2017) A Ghost Story is about more than love, grief and frenzied pie eating. It's about whether any of us has a reason to exist, pre- or post-decease.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
2/5 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) With unsympathetic leads, a clunky script and timeworn themes, Valerian stands and falls on the strength of its visual elements and action set-pieces -- which are, yes, pretty weird, and occasionally downright marvelous.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
3.5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) When used artfully, motion capture has reached a point where we no longer think about the technology we're seeing, just the character. And Caesar is a great one.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
3/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) While it won't convert any superhero haters, this version of the Spidey saga might just stick.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
4/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) It's the incidentals that make Baby Driver something special, from the creatively conceived, meticulously scored car chases to the running joke about people's names and their use in songs.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
1.5/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The biggest (only?) pleasure of The Last Knight is watching the film struggle with its identity and slowly become aware of its own awfulness.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
3.5/5 45% Rough Night (2017) Rough Night is basically a feel-good amusement with some darker moments and implications, and a tribute to female friendship in which men, dead or alive, are far from the only topic of conversation.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2017
4/5 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) Rachel is a slight story, leading to more of an ironic fizzle than a grand climax. Yet it has a moral complexity that the so-called "psychological thrillers" in our multiplexes often lack.‐ Seven Days

4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Gadot carries the movie by combining the charisma of a demigod with the personability of Indiana Jones; even when she's fiercest, empathy and humor are never far away.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
2.5/5 84% The Lovers (2017) It takes a juicy premise and two fine actors -- including the too-scarce, always-welcome Debra Winger -- and fails to do much with them.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
3.5/5 68% Alien: Covenant (2017) Covenant won't remind anyone of the steadily mounting tension of the first two films. But in its odd, compromised, collage-like way, it's pretty entertaining.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
2.5/5 37% Snatched (2017) The makers of Snatched appear to have taken more of a "throw outrageousness at the audience and see if it sticks" approach. Mostly, it doesn't.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
3/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) While the film has loads of style, it doesn't have enough substance to work as a horror film (which it sometimes impersonates) or as an absorbing drama.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
4.5/5 92% A Quiet Passion (2017) Alternately theatrical and cinematic, stilted and impassioned, A Quiet Passion may not stick tightly to the known facts of Dickinson's biography, but it brings her alive with surprising immediacy.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
4.5/5 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Its look is gorgeously naturalistic, its pace leisurely, its mood verging on trancelike, with moments when the real and surreal effortlessly meld.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
2.5/5 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The sheer excess of this series that keeps pushing on the accelerator is, undeniably, kind of fun, and fans won't be disappointed. But it's a tiring kind of fun.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 79% T2 Trainspotting (2017) While T2 doesn't recapture the excitement of the original, it's a decent diversion.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
2.5/5 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Ghost in the Shell feels like a middling cyberpunk flick that has sat on a shelf since the early '90s.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
3.5/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Condon's version certainly won't replace the animated film. But it provides just enough sappiness and sass to please a broad audience with fond memories of the "song as old as rhyme" -- and, no doubt, to enchant a new generation.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
3/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) The film is at its best when it sweeps us into the terror of confronting giants.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
4/5 93% Logan (2017) Fans who come to see Wolverine in brutal, bloody, R-rated combat will get their fill. But Mangold alternates those battles with quieter scenes that establish even supporting characters as people whose deaths matter.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) Like The Stepford Wives before it, Get Out uses a fancifully exaggerated scenario to illustrate real social tensions.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
3.5/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) ot a masterpiece, but nothing easily forgettable, either.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
3.5/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) It's jam-packed with comic-book conceits presented with the brisk drollness of Terry Gilliam.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
2/5 7% Rings (2017) Seven days after seeing Rings, you won't remember a thing about it.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
4.5/5 88% 20th Century Women (2017) Sometimes Dorothea seems like a time traveler, and so does Mills, as he offers this wry elegy for a loved one and her era.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
3.5/5 74% Split (2017) Without a doubt, this film is tense, lean and sometimes mean.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
9/10 88% Jackie (2016) The woman comes across as imperious, mercurial and sometimes eccentric, but always real. ‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
4/5 92% Hidden Figures (2017) With any luck, Hidden Figures will bring viewers to the nonfiction account by Margot Lee Shetterly on which it's based -- and serve as an inspiration for STEM-minded kids who rarely see parallels to themselves on film.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
3/5 41% Jane Got a Gun (2016) Jane lacks a strong vision, doing justice to neither the camp potential of its title nor the sophistication of its structure. She's got a gun, all right, but it's shooting blanks.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
1/5 9% God's Not Dead 2 (2016) The script's focus jumps among several characters, some carried over from the previous film, but its methods of characterization remain constant.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) Zootopia is a bouncy, candy-colored animation, not an overt political allegory, yet it's an apt movie for this primary season.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
3/5 11% When the Bough Breaks (2016) An enjoyable camp fest.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
2/5 44% The Hollars (2016) The Hollars does achieve occasional poignant moments, most of them due to Martindale's warm presence and the goodwill she inspires. But the other actors have little to work with.‐ Seven Days
