Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/4 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Audiences seem to be smart enough these days to know a good movie when they see it, and to avoid a bad flick despite Hollywood's best efforts to pull a fast one on them.‐ Salon.com

2/4 32% Jigsaw (2017) Which brings us to "Jigsaw," which fails for very much the same reasons as "The Mummy" - It was made to launch a franchise rather than because it was actually about something.‐ Salon.com

1.5/4 15% Friend Request (2017) The characters aren't as obnoxious and unlikable as the ones in "Smiley" and "Unfriended," but then again, bland and forgettable is only a marginally preferable alternative.‐ Salon.com

4/4 85% It (2017) I'm writing this not so much as a critic but as an ordinary moviegoer, experiencing Proustian transport via an old-fashioned scary movie executed by a team of filmmakers and actors at the top of their game.‐ Salon.com

4/4 88% All the Way (2016) Beneath the melodrama of the maneuvering for power, there are millions of ordinary human beings who depend on the right outcome.‐ Salon.com

3.5/4 80% Brigsby Bear (2017) "Brigsby Bear" is a funny, oddly touching look at the pros and cons of millennials' tendency to obsess over pop culture. ‐ Salon.com

3/4 79% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Would I still recommend "An Inconvenient Sequel"? Sure, although I doubt there is much one could glean from this movie that couldn't be obtained by rewatching "An Inconvenient Truth."‐ Salon.com

3/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) If "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is to be judged solely on its ability to unite a diverse audience behind a fun motion picture, it seems to have succeeded wildly.‐ Salon.com

4/4 90% Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999) It's fair to say that "Pirates of Silicon Valley" established the standard that all worthy movies about the computer revolution will need to follow.‐ Salon.com

4/4 67% 1776 (1972) With "1776," political struggles that took place nearly two-and-a-half centuries ago feel as fresh and immediate as the political struggles of today.‐ Salon.com

3.5/4 94% Finding Dory (2016) Who would have thought one of the deepest films ever made about learning disabilities would star a talking blue fish?‐ Salon.com

3.5/4 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) It is one of the best movies to ever come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, balancing engaging action set pieces and witty dialogue with intelligent character studies and ethical debates.‐ Salon.com

3/4 26% Suicide Squad (2016) Based on the screening I attended, I can attest that audiences seemed to genuinely enjoy the jokes and get swept up in the action sequences.‐ Salon.com

3/4 74% Ghostbusters (2016) It aims to be a good family film for the summer movie season, and it fits right in with the buttery popcorn I ate while watching it.‐ Salon.com

2/4 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) It is without question an important film today, and a quintessential product of the America we inhabit.‐ Salon.com

0.5/4 16% The Mummy (2017) It feels less like a movie than a series of compromises worked out by a corporate committee.‐ Salon.com

0.5/4 0% The Ridiculous 6 (2015) When it comes to its underlying racial message, "The Ridiculous Six" still grates, and there are obvious moments when it appears to be punching down almost without realizing it.‐ Salon.com

2.5/4 74% Split (2017) "Split" takes a step in this direction by positing that "mental sickness" might not always be an actual illness - but then takes two steps back by exploiting moviegoers' fears that people with unusual mental conditions can be unpredictably violent.‐ Salon.com

3.5/4 92% Dunkirk (2017) Despite all the substandard characterization, what we do see sucks us in enough to keep us invested and, at times, riveted.‐ Salon.com
