T-Meter Title | Year
80% Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway (2021) Hathaway may be one of the best Gundam movies ever made. It's intelligent without being meandering in ideals and thrilling without being bombastic or incoherent. - Film Inquiry EDIT

27% The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021) It constantly kicks itself to see if there's any gas left and it just happens to have enough for an exhilarating and giddy joyride but not much is improved upon in the sequel. - Film Inquiry EDIT

67% Crisis (2021) While this multi-story film doesn't quite pack the punch for taking this problem seriously in its scattershot methodology, there's at least an ample ambition in trying to broaden this picture to be far more than just one genre of drug drama. - Film Inquiry EDIT

8% Music (2020) Music is more than just a trainwreck of Sia's first frustrating attempt at a feature. It represents the depressing realization of just how misinformed the public still is about autism and how dangerous the misinformation in media is turning out to be. - Film Inquiry EDIT

80% Safety (2020) While the true story of McElrathbey is an inspiring one, the movie it spawned phones in drama most mild, more interested in making his story seem less questioning and more heartfelt. - Film Inquiry EDIT

48% Unhinged (2020) Unhinged remains so stuck in first gear it rarely veers out of the thriller slow lane. - Film Inquiry EDIT

94% John Lewis: Good Trouble (2020) Good Trouble is bursting with inspiration both powerful and essential, strong enough to be more than just a flowery portrait. - Film Inquiry EDIT

71% Trolls World Tour (2020) Trolls World Tour, finds a bit more to explore within its energetic world while dabbling in more than a double-dip of its familiar candy coating. - Film Inquiry EDIT

86% Come to Daddy (2020) Come to Daddy oozes Timpson's remarkable devotion to the emotional, surreal and vicious with grotesque gusto. - Film Inquiry EDIT

18% Playmobil: The Movie (2019) Akin to a cheap toy knockoff of toxic materials, Playmobil wields whimsy that is generic, tiresome, and probably isn't safe for young children. - Film Inquiry EDIT

94% Klaus (2019) Klaus captures the old fashioned wonder of Christmas within the old fashioned splendor of traditional animation. - Film Inquiry EDIT

26% Gemini Man (2019) Gemini Man smears a lot of fancy tech all over an empty and tiresome thriller. Take away all the glamour of a CGI Will Smith and a super-charged frame rate and there's not a lot to talk about in a film that ambles through a story we've heard before. - Film Inquiry EDIT

78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) There's more frill than frights but just enough style and empathy to be admirable if not scary. - Film Inquiry EDIT

90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Far From Home has all the right stuff to not just be another thrilling Spider-Man adventure, but a bold step forward for the future of both the hero and his world. - Film Inquiry EDIT

44% Murder Mystery (2019) The best that can be said of Murder Mystery is that it's a mildly amusing experience that won't offend but will most certainly evaporate from the mind soon after. - Film Inquiry EDIT

27% UglyDolls (2019) There's a frustratingly passive nature to UglyDolls that prevents it from being the more meaningful film it could have been. - Film Inquiry EDIT

89% Wild Nights with Emily (2019) There's a refreshing nature to how Olnek gives Dickinson a certain dignity while embracing her truths that were buried in her work. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet Robotech: The Movie (1986) There's little reason to seek out the film past being a Robotech completionist, considering how much better Megazone 23 looks when not filtered through Robotech Americanization. - Film Inquiry EDIT

82% Ruben Brandt, Collector (2019) Thanks to a lucidly strong story with wildly free animation, Ruben Brandt, Collector is one of the most intoxicating and intelligent of animated films. - Film Inquiry EDIT
