T-Meter Title | Year
87% BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky (2020) What does it mean that Blackpink seems more interesting in a documentary than in the music that led to the doc's creation? Perhaps it's the strategy for survival the women know they'll need. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

96% Creem: America's Only Rock 'N' Roll Magazine (2020) Yet "Creem..." does so little to showcase Creem's writing... that any viewer who hasn't read dozens of moldy back issues is left to wonder why anybody, inside or outside the magazine's office, would tolerate so much nonsense. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

69% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) Clapton simply hasn't anything profound or insightful to say about these episodes that you don't already get from his music. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

67% George Michael: Freedom (2017) Essentially a glorified sizzle reel stringing together interviews and TV performances any serious fan is likely to have already seen, the documentary does little to deepen our understanding of Michael or his music. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

42% Just Friends (2005) A refreshingly mean-spirited breeze through both the holiday movie and romantic-comedy checklists (including the third-act heart of gold). - Village Voice EDIT

89% We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen (2005) It's refreshing to see a doc in which the biggest boldfaced name is Flea, who gushes over Watt and Boon's reluctance to tune their instruments. - Village Voice EDIT
