Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

3/5 79% 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

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

4.5/5 88% 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

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 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) While T2 doesn't recapture the excitement of the original, it's a decent diversion.‐ Seven Days

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

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

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

4/5 92% 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

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

3.5/5 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) ot a masterpiece, but nothing easily forgettable, either.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) It's jam-packed with comic-book conceits presented with the brisk drollness of Terry Gilliam.‐ Seven Days

2/5 6% Rings (2017) Seven days after seeing Rings, you won't remember a thing about it.‐ Seven Days

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

3.5/5 75% Split (2017) Without a doubt, this film is tense, lean and sometimes mean.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
9/10 89% 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 93% 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

3/5 39% 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

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

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

3/5 12% 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

4.5/5 89% Loving (2016) This is a showing movie, not a telling movie: The bond between the Lovings is all in their body language.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
3/5 74% Miss Sloane (2016) Miss Sloane does have plot twists aplenty, and one big novelty: Its amoral protagonist is female.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
3.5/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Since Rogue One slides neatly into the preexisting plot of the original Star Wars trilogy, it doesn't feel glaringly imitative of it, as The Force Awakens did.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
2.5/5 77% The Shallows (2016) For those of us who prefer our survival dramas bare-bones and gritty, like Open Water, The Shallows may come across as the CW version. Its photogenic slickness detracts from its terror.‐ Seven Days

4/5 69% Swiss Army Man (2016) Viewers who aren't intrinsically opposed to toilet humor may actually find this curiosity pretty funny -- and, thanks to the conviction of its lead actors, sometimes weirdly poignant.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) The aquatic world of Dory doesn't teem with as many fascinating details as the mammalian world of spring's Zootopia, but it has its share of clever visual gags, many of them occasioned by Hank's camouflaging abilities. ‐ Seven Days

4/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) The good news about Civil War is that those willing to bone up on the backstory will find characters they actually care about enough to root for.‐ Seven Days

4/5 90% Green Room (2016) The setting is claustrophobia inducing, the shooting artful, and the tension unremitting.‐ Seven Days

3.5/5 77% Keanu (2016) Keanu is an amiable shaggy-cat story with just enough bite to get laughs.‐ Seven Days

4/5 83% Midnight Special (2016) The southern landscapes give Midnight Special a down-home realness that compensates for the hot air of its high-concept plot.‐ Seven Days

2.5/5 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) A franker, tougher approach to Bridget's situation might have yielded a darker, funnier film. ‐ Seven Days

98% The Fits (2016) The Fits combines the energy of a dance film with the obliqueness and eerie atmosphere of an art film. I feel safe in saying I've never seen anything quite like it before.‐ Seven Days

9/10 79% American Honey (2016) Such an absorbing experience - visually, aurally, atmospherically - that viewers who come along for the road trip may find themselves not minding the lack of destination. ‐ Seven Days

6/10 83% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) While it's not the best showcase for up-and-coming horror director Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush), it's not a total waste of his gifts, either. ‐ Seven Days

8/10 92% Certain Women (2016) Reichardt's camera always returns eventually from the burrows people dig for themselves to the mountains that hover on the horizon like a promise. ‐ Seven Days

9/10 93% Arrival (2016) For those who feel the emotional weight of Louise's story, Arrival pays off in a big way. ‐ Seven Days

9/10 98% Moonlight (2016) The film doesn't offer any kind of soothing balm for our troubled times. What it does offer is a powerful affirmation of its characters' complex humanity.‐ Seven Days

5/10 60% Allied (2016) Paying homage to movies that are iconic doesn't wash as an excuse for trafficking in clichés. ‐ Seven Days

8/10 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) The story hits plenty of familiar beats, yet its setting and the actors' conviction combine to give it a feel-good freshness.‐ Seven Days

5/10 52% The Accountant (2016) The film dumps every cliché of the brilliant eccentric into a blender with every cliché of the stoic action hero. ‐ Seven Days

6/10 44% The Girl on the Train (2016) Taylor and screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson have amped up the book's staid sexuality to fever pitch.‐ Seven Days

9/10 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) There's nothing banal about this affirmation of the human imagination.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
8/10 99% Don't Think Twice (2016) A low-key drama and a surprisingly funny comedy rolled into one, Birbiglia's film suggests that improv and life have something in common.‐ Seven Days
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
8/10 97% Hell or High Water (2016) The deft sketches of minor characters - each surviving tough times in their own way - give human faces to the film's messaging. ‐ Seven Days

5/10 69% The Infiltrator (2016) Feeling long at slightly over two hours, The Infiltrator is a patchwork of elements that tantalize us without satisfying.‐ Seven Days

7/10 59% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) There's no point in trying to tone down the show's outrageousness for the big screen - outrageousness is the point - and no one has tried.‐ Seven Days
