T-Meter Title | Year
89% They Call Me Dr. Miami (2020) It's the sort of show I'd be interested in watching for a half-hour, not 78 minutes, and it's less about the world of plastic surgery and more about the man wielding the scalpel. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

13% Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical! (2020) What was most striking about the experience is that watching the show felt like the familiar slog of watching an awards show -- frequent commercial breaks that were a relief instead of a nuisance, time moving both faster and slower than it should. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

75% The King of Staten Island (2020) It's as if Davidson is merely playing another version of himself, incapable of stretching beyond the bounds of his own personality and his own life-not necessarily his fault, but definitely the fault of the material. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

65% The Lovebirds (2020) It's a fun, light-hearted romp that dispenses with much of the romance in favor of a larger, more pressing event. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

81% Tigertail (2020) Truthfully, Tigertail is Pin-Jui's story through and through, and the film would've benefitted from tightening its focus... - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

40% Pete Davidson: Alive From New York (2020) A tight 49-minute show that lacks the tick-tock rhythm of a comedy special and feels more like a therapeutic happy hour. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

76% To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (2020) The sequel fails to capture the giddy magic of the first, in part because the success of the first was so astronomical. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

97% The Farewell (2019) There are moments of recognition in some of the even more infuriating scenes that made me laugh through reluctant tears. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

36% Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead (1991) If we look at the details, this movie is actually pretty good. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

90% Always Be My Maybe (2019) As the newest entry to the rom-com genre, it succeeds not solely because of its representation: Always Be My Maybe is a sparkling, charming rom-com. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

96% Booksmart (2019) While it's not clear how long these girls have been friends, what shines on the screen is their chemistry-Feldstein is a remarkable actor. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

57% Aladdin (2019) There's a specific energy and verve Williams's voice acting carried that Smith, sadly, lacks. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

68% Baby Boom (1987) It is a startlingly prescient look at the anxieties of motherhood. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Crazy Rich Asians is a romantic comedy giddy off its own supply -- the answer to the question of what a romantic comedy would look like if it were shot like an action film. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

56% Tag (2018) The entire time, you're wondering when someone will just become "it" so you can go home. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

100% Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife (2018) Motherhood itself isn't a political act, but the various ways facets of society rise up to tell women how to be a mother are, certainly. The beauty of Hard Knock Wife is in hearing these gnarlier truths explored with filthy and honest verve. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

84% Blockers (2018) Parents scared of their own irrelevancy in the face of their children growing up is a tale as old as time. We know the kids are alright, but maybe once it'd be nice to show how that came to be. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

78% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Nothing about the film itself led me to believe that I would enjoy myself. Against all reason, I did. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) The movie is thematically broad yet uneven, visually stunning at times, and most of all presents a clear-cut message of acceptance, love, and empowerment that will certainly resonate with its intended audience: young girls at their most vulnerable age. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

35% I Feel Pretty (2018) The message isn't bad in theory (love yourself and you can do anything), but it's crammed into a messy, retrograde plot that does a disservice to any nibble of authenticity one might be able to find. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT

87% Tully (2018) While Mary Poppins's magic is of the wholesome Disney variety... it's not that different, conceptually, from Tully's effect. - The Muse/Jezebel EDIT
