Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 67% Suck It Up (2017) We've seen movies built around this kind of story a million times and while Jordan Canning's film Suck It Up never makes any attempts to transcend its genre trappings, it's at least sporadically amusing.‐ Film Threat

B+ 87% Better Watch Out (2017) The young cast are all great, particularly Miller, coming off the disastrous Pan a few years ago. Hidden behind a squeaky voice and skinny jeans, Miller finds a balance of childlike innocence and balances it with a dash of privilege. ‐ Film Threat

3/4 97% Coco (2017) The overarching themes of "Coco" might seem a bit basic for our high expectations of Pixar, but they are executed with heart and sincerity throughout the film.‐ Big Picture Big Sound

1/4 18% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) ...lets hope Wahlberg, Ferrell and crew have exhausted these characters because they sure have exhausted us.‐ Big Picture Big Sound

4/4 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a wonder, a daring mix of tones and themes that always work concurrently rather than against each other.‐ Big Picture Big Sound

B+ 100% Wexford Plaza (2017) There's an unexpected sweetness and sadness to Wexford Plaza....The delicate balance that Wong strikes makes Wexford Plaza a film worth seeking out.‐ Film Threat

B- 66% Bitch (2017) As Bitch progresses, it slides into a much more familiar redemptive tale but then Jill barks from the basement and we remember this movie still has a little - well - bite.‐ Film Threat

B+ 100% The Light of the Moon (2017) It's simple but effective and an assured debut by a first-time director.‐ Film Threat

C+ 26% Literally, Right Before Aaron (2017) Literally, Right Before Aaron sets up its been-there premise without much deviation before heading into sitcom territory for the final act. In fact, most of the movie plays like a pilot that was never picked up for a full season.‐ Film Threat

A- 100% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) Faces Places is inspiring and reflective and works just as well as a mismatched buddy road comedy. It's pure cinematic joy.‐ Film Threat

A- 87% Abundant Acreage Available (2017) A moment of silence for Amy Ryan's awards campaign that will never happen for her finely calibrated performance in Abundant Acreage Available.‐ Film Threat

B+ 94% Stronger (2017) Everything about Stronger is rather straightforward but Green captures it tastefully and respectfully, carving out affecting moments in telling Jeff's journey. ‐ Film Threat

C+ 97% Columbus (2017) Columbus is occasionally effective in its quietness but other times it can prove to be a bit alienating.‐ Film Threat

C- 58% Lemon (2017) In the end, Lemon is a barely functioning film.‐ Film Threat

B- 85% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) Though problematic, The Untamed is another interesting addition to the horror genre, which has seen an uptick in quality this year.‐ Film Threat

F No Score Yet America Has Fallen (2016) America Has Fallen is so distractingly awful, trying to make a grand action picture out of a few cents. ‐ Film Threat

B 78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) The documentary is timely and frightening and, despite some technical missteps along the way by the filmmakers, worthy of a much needed watch.‐ Film Threat

D- 9% The Emoji Movie (2017) The Emoji Movie is so painfully lame and an 86-minute reminder that Hollywood could do better because your children deserve better.‐ Film Threat

B 76% Atomic Blonde (2017) Atomic Blonde doesn't reinvent the wheel and never really tries to. It occasionally gets tangled in its own web but it accomplishes what it set out to do.‐ Film Threat

A- 98% The Big Sick (2017) The film earns its silly and sweet moments just as much as all of the serious. It deserves to be the surprise hit of the summer, which it's on its way to being.‐ Film Threat
