Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
88% Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold (2017) The Center Will Not Hold is instead a celebration of the thing that existed far before the internet came along: Joan, the person.‐ The Atlantic

40% The Mountain Between Us (2017) Skip The Mountain Between Us. If you're in the mood to be cloyed, watch a Hallmark movie instead.‐ The Atlantic

8% The Emoji Movie (2017) The Emoji Movie is not just a critical flop, but also a metaphor for a Hollywood that is struggling to find the line between branding that audiences love and branding that audiences resent.‐ The Atlantic

18% Baywatch (2017) Suffice it to say, too, that there's a lot of delight to be had in the frothy union of the Bay and the Watch, much of it coming from Johnson, who carries the whole of this movie on his epically chiseled lats.‐ The Atlantic

36% Snatched (2017) Snatched is a trip very much like the one it portrays: one that, in the end, does a pretty poor job of putting the "fun" in "unrefundable."‐ The Atlantic

64% Storks (2016) Storks is charming, if often nonsensical in its plot line and frenetic in its pacing.‐ The Atlantic

74% Ghostbusters (2016) It's funny, and nuanced in its funniness: hehs to haaaaaaas to lols.‐ The Atlantic

43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) The Angry Birds Movie is really not bad. It is actually very actively okay. The film has taken its bird-brained brand... and used it to construct characters and plots that are certainly serviceable, and possibly even inspired.‐ The Atlantic

28% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) It manages to rehash the original, almost entirely, while lacking nearly all the things that made the first film, despite its flaws, compelling.‐ The Atlantic

22% The Boss (2016) The Boss is sketch comedy, with none of the lines colored in.‐ The Atlantic

68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) It's a morally messy premise. Afghanistan is not Colin Firth. War is not Love Actually. And that is the problem with Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, which is overall a charming comedy about a terrible war.‐ The Atlantic

60% Sisters (2015) Is Sisters a good movie? No. No, it is not. Its plot manages to be both jarring (so many twists!) and predictable; its supporting characters are thin; it makes gleeful use of tired stereotypes.‐ The Atlantic

72% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) It's beautiful and haunting and and commercial and confusing and cringe-worthy. So maybe it's also Christmas.‐ The Atlantic

29% Burnt (2015) Burnt is, to be clear, not a good movie. It is in fact a pretty terrible movie.‐ The Atlantic

60% The Intern (2015) There's something powerful in that, in the simple fact that The Intern is so sympathetic to its older character-so resolutely on the side of a person who might, in other contexts, be dismissed or ignored or, as is so often the case, invisible.‐ The Atlantic

92% Grandma (2015) It's a character study and morality play and bildungsroman, subtly executed and lovingly performed.‐ The Atlantic

70% Café Society (2016) For all its beauty and its star power, the movie never elevates to anything beyond a kind of storyboard sketch.‐ The Atlantic

26% Terminator Genisys (2015) Terminator: Genisys, however, has none of the stakes, and none of the moral preoccupations, of its predecessors.‐ The Atlantic
