T-Meter Title | Year
4/10 18% Hellboy (2019) Hellboy returns in this unholy mess of a reboot, which is marred by terrible CGI and a poorly executed story. - IGN Movies EDIT

8.3/10 78% Captain Marvel (2019) Captain Marvel's big screen debut puts a fresh spin on Marvel's Phase One origin story formula. - IGN Movies EDIT

8.5/10 69% Happy Death Day 2U (2019) The level of risk-taking is refreshing, even when it's not completely successful at every single turn. - IGN Movies EDIT

29% Venom (2018) It's never boring, but it certainly doesn't hold up under close inspection - and it definitely doesn't meet the standards set by its genre predecessors. - CBR EDIT

32% The Predator (2018) If Shane Black's The Predator proves anything it's that you can, absolutely, turn what should have been an over-the-top action thrill ride about a bunch of screw-ups taking down a monster into a boring, and ultimately incomprehensible, mess. - CBR EDIT

26% The Nun (2018) It's simply having too much fun being exactly what it wants, whenever it wants, however it wants, to feel like the minor stumbles or fatty bits were actually detrimental at all. - CBR EDIT

22% Mile 22 (2018) If the nonstop reign of skull crushing, eye gouging ultra violence isn't enough to exhaust you entirely, trying to keep track of what's important and why definitely will. - CBR EDIT

7% Slender Man (2018) Slender Man doesn't manage to mine much more than cheap scares with confusing rules from the character's myriad source material...it may not be the most well rendered horror movie of the year, or the most compelling, but you could certainly do worse. - CBR EDIT

91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is a kids movie that is inviting adults to be in on the gag, not the other way around. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
47% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper somehow manages to shoot for just about every beloved 80s action movie trope and miss them by miles, all while being, somehow and against all odds, completely and inexplicably boring. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Its comedy is wonderfully offbeat, its heart is huge and emblazoned on its sleeve, and its intentions are wildly optimistic and bright. - CBR EDIT

69% Ocean's 8 (2018) Hopefully Debbie and Lou's team will get another chance down the line. After all, "9" and "10" are still free for titles so there's certainly room. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 is much more self aware, and artfully dodges a lot of the tired tropes associated with husband-wife role-swaps. - CBR EDIT

57% Hotel Artemis (2018) What it lacks in asses-kicked-per-minute, it makes up for in a cast with charm and chemistry to spare. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The end results are unsatisfying to say the least, muddled at best and egregious at worst. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
89% Hereditary (2018) That's not to say there aren't a few classic jump scare moments to go around, but by holding them on a tight leash, Hereditary is able to cultivate a world in which everything feels like a potential threat, even in broad daylight. - CBR EDIT

52% Tomb Raider (2018) Vikander's stellar performance isn't enough to rescue a story that falls apart with just the slightest bit of scrutiny. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) If Pacific Rim Uprising had to be distilled into a single word, that word would be "clumsy." - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
72% Ready Player One (2018) The end result is a a confusing and muddled message about the "purity" of fandom. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
95% A Quiet Place (2018) It's a pretty bold gambit, all told, and one that could easily turn into a massive chore - but thankfully A Quiet Place manages to weaponize its strict set of rules in (almost) all the right ways. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
52% Rampage (2018) It's a surprising show of self-awareness in a genre where restraint is generally the enemy. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) That feeling - the abruptness of the ending, the "left in the lurch" lack of satisfaction - is certainly the most bold and brazen risk-taking the MCU has dared try in the last decade. - CBR EDIT

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It's a smorgasbord of fanservice moments that practically look directly into the camera and wink, but each time it happens, the gesture gets less and less endearing. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
83% Deadpool 2 (2018) It's clearly a stab at recreating grittier, more emotionally fraught origin story moments that Deadpool 1 certainly didn't shy away from, but this time it feels like the movie is trying to punch way, way above its weight class. - CBR EDIT
