Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
D 50% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper is the action movie at its most generic, but not at its most fun. It should be a movie that gives us larger-than-life action with a fanciful building and Johnson's charisma, but instead it gives us neither.‐ Collider

B 86% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The movie takes nothing, including itself, seriously, and just runs on as a nice caper with relatively low stakes and goofball humor.‐ Collider

C 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) In some ways, Day of the Soldado is darker than Sicario, but it's darkness without purpose.‐ Collider

B+ 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 remains fresh and fun, but also distinct from its predecessor.‐ Collider

B 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) Hotel Artemis is a pulpy powder-keg anchored by Jodie Foster's excellent lead performance. ‐ Collider

B+ 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) It features glamorous celebrities having a ball as they plan an elaborate heist that will dazzle you not only with what's being stolen, but with how the crew managed to steal it...it doesn't break the mold as much as it remakes it in a new image.‐ Collider

C 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo is technically a Star Wars movie, but it's one that has set pieces in place of a personality. It's a film whose base level is "fine". Despite some unique cinematography, Ron Howard's direction is staid, stolid, and completely without personality.‐ Collider

2.5/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 offers a glorious sugar high, but that inevitably means it comes crashing back to Earth.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
B- 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) The movie is packed with fun banter and set pieces, but it's not really about anything, and the ending falls flat.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
C+ 32% I Feel Pretty (2018) This is a nice movie, but its message about self-improvement and confidence is only skin deep.‐ Collider

3/5 31% Super Troopers 2 (2018) On a first viewing Super Troopers 2 at least manages to avoid many of the pitfalls that harm other comedy sequels.‐ Collider

A- 83% Blockers (2018) Blockers had me howling with laughter from start to finish, and it sets a high bar for other comedies this year.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
B 73% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One is a thrilling adventure, not a nostalgia parade.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
B+ 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Even if you want to ignore all the political aspects completely, you still have a lovely story about a dog and a boy going on an adventure. That always plays well.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
B+ 80% Unsane (2018) Unsane is an immediate and timely indictment of the voices we choose to listen to and which ones we ignore.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
C 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Pacific Rim Uprising is serviceable enough on its own terms, but can't help but feel like a pale imitation of the first movie.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
D 49% Tomb Raider (2018) Roar Uthaug's movie is a constant drag, always leaning into the seriousness of the story but rarely finding the joy in the journey.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
C+ 40% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle in Time always feels discombobulated, eager to please a wide audience, but also trying to be a little weird and unique. That's an admirable goal, and I wish the movie had pulled it off.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
F 18% Death Wish (2018) Unlike the original Death Wish where violence ruins everything it touches, in the remake, it's a cure-all. Happiness is only a semi-automatic away.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
B- 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Rather than offering the escapism the spy genre usually provides, Francis Lawrence's film is a brutal plunge into a world of sexual assault and degradation.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
C 15% Mute (2018) Like Jones' divisive Warcraft, Mute is uncompromising. But compromise isn't the worst thing in the world.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
B- 83% Game Night (2018) Game Night is surprisingly fun, but the real standout is Jesse Plemmons' delightfully creepy performance.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
B 82% Early Man (2018) Although it plays by the standard beats of the sports comedy, Early Man scores thanks to Aardman's trademark charm and wit.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2018
F 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Perhaps the most damning aspect of these movies is that Christian Grey is a bad guy, and his toxic masculinity contaminates the entire picture.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
D 17% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) The Cloverfield Paradox may be a splash for Netflix, but it's a dud as a sci-fi thriller.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2018
C- 63% Peter Rabbit (2018) Peter Rabbit would prefer to be cool rather than charming, and ends up being utterly forgettable.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2018
A- 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) A moving tribute not only to Fred Rogers, but to the kindness and compassion he and his program embodied.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
B 95% Sorry to Bother You (2018) Director Boots Riley is a talent to watch and his satire hits with the force of a sledgehammer.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
B 96% Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (2018) Marina Zenovich's documentary reminds us that we will miss Robin Williams forever. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
B 93% RBG (2018) The documentary is at its best when it digs into how Ginsburg changed the legal landscape of America.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
D- 42% Ophelia (2018) Ophelia comes off like awful Hamlet fanfiction.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
B- 70% Lizzie (2018) The movie occasionally flirts with interesting ideas regarding the power of women in society, but it never goes far enough to leave a lasting impression.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
C- 80% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) Despite strong performances from Phoenix and Hill, Don't Worry can't out run its deluge of clichés. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
B+ 100% Crime + Punishment (2018) Crime + Punishment is a searing look at systemic racism and the 12 NYPD officers brave enough to try and stop it.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
B- 83% Chef Flynn (2018) In its best moments, Chef Flynn is like a real-life Ratatouille showing a great chef with an unlikely background.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
C 50% Burden (2018) Burden is a good story, but told from the wrong perspective. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
F 69% Summer of '84 (2018) Take all the worst aspects of Stranger Things, amplify them, and you still wouldn't have a movie as unrelenting terrible as Summer of '84.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018

Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
C- 31% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) The Catcher Was a Spy can't latch onto an intriguing angle, choosing instead to leave Berg as a cipher but calling him an "enigma."‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
A 98% The Tale (2018) The Tale is one of the bravest and smartest movies I've ever seen.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
B 100% The Guilty (Den skyldige) (2018) Despite a limited setting, Möller makes the most of his drama, keeping the action tense due to a powerful story and a tremendous performance from lead actor Jakob Cedergren. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
F 67% Our New President (2018) Stringing together a bunch of Russia Today clips without any context or analysis doesn't qualify as a documentary.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
D+ 54% 12 Strong (2018) 12 Strong is content to be a third-rate action movie, wasting its talented cast in a well-intentioned but ultimately lackadaisical picture.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
B 57% The Commuter (2018) If The Commuter is one of Liam Neeson's final action movies, he's leaving the genre on a high note.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
A 100% Paddington 2 (2018) We need a new Paddington movie every January. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
C+ 77% All the Money in the World (2017) All the Money in the World has some interesting ideas about price and value, but it never adds up.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
B- 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) The direction and the performances manage to uplift the mediocre story and songs through sheer force of will.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
B- 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) The Jumanji sequel isn't something we needed, but it still's a worthwhile family film that's charming and funny.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
B+ 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) I lost count of the jaw-dropping moments The Last Jedi presents, and it's a movie I can't wait to revisit.‐ Collider
