Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Stylized designs and outlandish powers aside, Bob, Helen and their progeny still feel oddly real.‐ Seven Days

4.5/5 90% Hereditary (2018) As a horror film, Hereditary delivers the goods, with crack pacing and a third act of sheer gothic madness.‐ Seven Days

4/5 93% RBG (2018) The audience is riveted immediately.‐ Seven Days

3/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The movie is at its best when it's just about the one-upping maneuvers of interstellar con men (and women, and various nonhumans).‐ Seven Days

2.5/5 53% Book Club (2018) They don't all have to have the same happy ending; half the fun of a book club is finding out what different messages readers can take away from the same story. If only these women had been inspired by a better one.‐ Seven Days

2.5/5 25% Breaking In (2018) Breaking In feels like an entire movie constructed around a couple of lines of dialogue that someone fervently hoped would become memes.‐ Seven Days

4/5 87% Tully (2018) Make no mistake: Tully is not a witty, wacky comedy about how tough it is to be a mom (though that is its subject). It's a tender, dark, intermittently funny film about the choices people make and the prices they pay.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) For a movie with a ridiculously unwieldy cast, Infinity War is surprisingly comprehensible and fun.‐ Seven Days

2/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) It doesn't speak well for a movie when its most redeeming quality is how it ends.‐ Seven Days

4/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) In every way, Isle of Dogs is a celebration of craftsmanship, the antithesis of the sleek, modern style of computer animation.‐ Seven Days

3/5 83% Blockers (2018) The movie is funniest when it rambles far afield from those '80s-style archetypes of horndog teenagers. ‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
3.5/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One captures the gee-whiz youthful triumphalism of the Reagan era, all right, but it never explores the deeper question of whether all that is worth rehashing - over and over.‐ Seven Days

2.5/5 79% Unsane (2018) Visually, the results aren't pretty, but they're interesting. On the level of narrative and tone, the movie is a mess.‐ Seven Days

2.5/5 48% Tomb Raider (2018) [Alicia Vikander] was magnetic in Ex Machina, but all she really does well here is suffer, and none of that suffering adds up to much.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
4/5 86% Thoroughbreds (2018) Like Amanda, Thoroughbreds has a disturbingly self-aware quality; it feigns normalcy, tricking us into thinking we know what to expect, only to withhold it.‐ Seven Days

1.5/5 18% Death Wish (2018) ... [director Eli Roth] doesn't succeed in getting us invested in his hero's crusade or really in anything on-screen.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
100% It's Such a Beautiful Day (2012) There is no "objective" perspective. What there is, surprisingly, is a form of grace or transcendence or epiphany or whatever you choose to call it. ‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 87% Annihilation (2018) It's a must-see for anyone who loves the truly speculative side of science fiction.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
4.5/5 97% Black Panther (2018) Moral complexity is not new to superhero movies, but this may be the first one in which the hero unabashedly changes his worldview and tactics after learning a few hard truths from the villain.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
1.5/5 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) It took only a few minutes of Fifty Shades Freed - directed, like the second installment, by the once-reputable James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross) - to make me long for freedom from this particular cinematic dungeon.‐ Seven Days

4/5 100% Last Men in Aleppo (2017) ... not an easy film to forget or ignore.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
2.5/5 41% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) If you don't mind the near-total absence of originality, The Death Cure is an OK ride, with a likable, multiethnic cast.‐ Seven Days

5/5 89% I, Tonya (2018) ... I, Tonya really only works because of the sure, merciless strokes in which it sketches its main characters.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
2.5/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) At its best, Molly's Game is a lively, entertaining, bracingly articulate film. But the final act may have audiences sorely wishing Sorkin had quit while he was ahead.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) Anger and self-pity practically bleed off the screen in The Room, but The Disaster Artist only hints at what could have inspired such animus.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
1/5 5% Just Getting Started (2017) ... writer-director Ron Shelton is a long way from the cerebral wit of his Bull Durham heyday.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2017
5/5 96% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
3.5/5 80% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
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 29% Suburbicon (2017) Trying to tell two stories, Suburbicon ends up telling none at all.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
1.5/5 14% Geostorm (2017) ... predictable twists, stock characters and an all-too-parsimonious serving of catastrophe.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2017
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 85% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
3.5/5 81% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 69% 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 9% 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

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

3/5 70% 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 91% 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 16% 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 44% 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
