T-Meter Title | Year
70% Happy End (2017) Easy to intellectually appreciate, but hard to like. - Junkee EDIT

78% The Little Hours (2017) Peppered with cool comedy cameos (Nick Offerman, Fred Armisen, Adam Pally and more) the film's consistently funny, and the chemistry between the three leads is a highlight. - Junkee EDIT

87% That's Not Me (2017) Though the dual performances one might expect from a twin flick are kept to a minimum, the impressive turn sees Foulcher in every scene, teetering along a role that drifts from satirical to sympathetic and back again. - Junkee EDIT

70% Swiss Army Man (2016) Dano and Radcliffe make for interesting casting, if not watching. - Junkee EDIT

97% Zootopia (2016) I mean, come on -- what was the last kids film that stumbled because it was overreaching in its exploration of inclusiveness? Also -- those sloths! - Junkee EDIT

22% Zoolander 2 (2016) This is some of Stiller's (and Wilson's, and Ferrell's) funniest, silliest work in years, with odd moments and inspired lunacy... It's just a shame that so many exquisitely silly moments have been sewn into such an out-of-date outfit. - Junkee EDIT

99% Song Of The Sea (2014) Come for the beautiful Carson Ellis like backdrops, and stay for the clever way it weaves traditional tales into a modern day fable. - Junkee EDIT

89% Dope (2015) Dope maybe has something to say about race and racism and masculinity -- but the film rarely takes a moment to actually listen to itself. - Junkee EDIT

91% The End Of The Tour (2015) The movie is a totally successful riff on the mindset of the writer, his themes, his obsessions, his flaws and his genius. - Junkee EDIT

95% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) What it lacks in original detail it makes up for in the power of repetition (a lot of people went through the same trauma), and the emotive resonance of seeing the church's survivors and reformed enforcers. - Junkee EDIT
