Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
6/10 79% The Phenom (2016) The Phenom has some good scenes and performances, but there are too many annoying things and too little point.‐ Paste Magazine

3/10 15% The Curse of Sleeping Beauty (2016) This movie is just over 80 minutes, and it feels like (a) they're stretching to fill that much, since so much of what happens is redundant; and (b) that they didn't actually do a lot of takes, since so many of these conversations are stilted.‐ Paste Magazine

3.2/10 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) Ultimately, Fifty Shades of Grey spends two hours describing a relationship that is bound to fail and doesn't even seem all that fun while it's occurring.‐ Paste Magazine

3.8/10 20% Lost in the Sun (2015) At every minute in this film, you know where it's going, because nothing that happens in any of the 130 minutes of this film works at all if the movie doesn't get there.‐ Paste Magazine

6/10 20% Jem and the Holograms (2015) Jem and the Holograms is a movie about sisterhood, which is cool, and to be honest it nails a kind of easy, natural interaction between its four characters, which is one saving grace, because the movie looks pretty cheap.‐ Paste Magazine

7.6/10 87% Fort Tilden (2015) Fort Tilden's quite charming, though filmmakers Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers never let their charmless subjects... gain too much of their audience's sympathy.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 83% Runoff (2015) Truly, Runoff can be an uncomfortable film to watch -- both because Levin's subject matter is supposed to make us uncomfortable and because her film leaves so much untended, is in the end so uneven.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 94% An Open Secret (2015) If you aren't familiar with any of the stories Berg presents, I suspect you'll find the material covered in An Open Secret horrific and shocking. If you are familiar, you'll still find it horrific and shocking.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) Like most sequels, Pitch Perfect 2 takes the blueprint of the original and fills it with new-yet-similar things. It's not redundant, and it is still very funny, but neither does it elevate the material it borrows from the first film into something better.‐ Paste Magazine

6/10 46% Gerontophilia (2015) As it is, it's hard to judge this as much more than a PSA for certain audience members: Hey everyone, gerontophilia is a thing that exists.‐ Paste Magazine

3/10 0% Any Day (2015) Everything in Any Day is portentous and presented as if it is loaded with meaning; none of it is, because everything is either so obvious or so arbitrary that nothing actually means anything.‐ Paste Magazine

3/10 9% The Forger (2015) The tension between grandfather and father and son is so fabricated and baseless that the film just kind of shrugs it off, like a coat it thought it should wear because that's what all the other gritty urban crime dramas are wearing these days.‐ Paste Magazine

5.5/10 73% Alex of Venice (2015) The problem with Chris Messina's directorial debut isn't so much badness as it is superfluousness -- that it is less its own discrete thing than a redundant genre study in This Type of Movie.‐ Paste Magazine

4/10 30% The Longest Ride (2015) While the story wants to pretend it's about two fully realized individuals who battle their obstacles and fight for their love, it isn't.‐ Paste Magazine
