Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/10 48% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) It's jarring at times how often it goes back and forth between 'gritty' and 'silly.'‐ Uproxx

7/10 79% Life (2017) Life borrows a lot from Alien, but it's still scary fun.‐ Uproxx

6/10 70% Beauty and the Beast (2017) There's certainly nothing that new about this version of Beauty and the Beast, but it's a good recreation of a classic animated film that should leave most die-hards satisfied. ‐ Uproxx

7/10 78% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island is a hoot.‐ Uproxx

8/10 92% Logan (2017) Logan is the movie that finally satisfies the wish fulfillment of those superhero movie conversations that that speculate on what a hard R-rated superhero movie would look like with a major established character.‐ Uproxx

7/10 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) The LEGO Batman Movie is a fun superhero movie with clever callbacks to previous Batman films that can, at least, provide DC superhero fans with a taste of fun amidst all the doom and gloom.‐ Uproxx

72% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Gore still maintained the new film was about hope and that it's not too late. But, man, his face sure said something else.‐ Uproxx

96% Mudbound (2017) What Dee Rees has done here is remarkable. The themes of racial injustice alone would make this movie "important," but what she's done with her film makes it an epic.‐ Uproxx

100% Call Me by Your Name (2017) Call Me By Your Name is a triumph of humanity.‐ Uproxx

31% The Yellow Birds (2017) Even though The Yellow Birds doesn't stick the landing, it's the kind of movie that's perfect for Ehrenreich to show off his range as he gears up to be a Movie Star.‐ Uproxx

9/10 96% The Big Sick (2017) Just like Trainwreck elevated Amy Schumer to being a household name, The Big Sick really could do the same for Kumail Nanjiani.‐ Uproxx

5/10 35% Live By Night (2017) Live By Night feels rushed - missing all the slow burn drama that Affleck showed he was so good at in his prior three films.‐ Uproxx

2/10 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) Assassin's Creed is a tedious experience‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One shouldn't work - from everything from the reshoots to just the fact Star Wars is breaking from centering its story around the Skywalkers - but, yet, it does work. Mostly.‐ Uproxx

9/10 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) A movie about regret and we all have regrets... it's just a matter of if we let those regrets define us. But, sometimes, we don't have that choice.‐ Uproxx

8/10 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Boy, is it a crowd pleaser‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2016
8/10 93% Fences (2016) If you want to see some great acting, Fences is a movie that has great acting.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2016
7/10 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) A worthy, but much different, successor to Harry Potter.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2016
7/10 87% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) There are two moments during the second half of Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge when I literally jumped out of my seat in terror.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2016
7/10 90% Doctor Strange (2016) Doctor Strange is basically a reboot of Iron Man, only with a lot more prettier things to look at while you're stoned. It's a good strategy. And it works.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2016
4/10 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) The definition of an "average studio comedy."‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2016
7/10 37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) This is an impossibly dumb movie and I had so much fun watching it. Bring on ten more Jack Reacher movies.‐ Uproxx

8/10 89% The Lost City of Z (2017) A well-crafted film starring two actors who may just change some perceptions about the both of them.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2016
4/10 46% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) The more realistic everything looked, the faker everything became. I'm glad Ang Lee tried, but I hope he decides against this in the future.‐ Uproxx

9/10 88% 20th Century Women (2017) Imagine if Almost Famous told the story from Elaine Miller's perspective ... That's kind of what we're getting with 20th Century Women.‐ Uproxx

6/10 79% Personal Shopper (2017) This might be Kristen Stewart's greatest acting achievement: making Personal Shopper a watchable movie. ‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2016
8/10 89% Jackie (2016) Jackie [delivers] a way for Portman to give one of the best performances of her career, maybe her best performance.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2016
81% Colossal (2017) What I loved about Colossal is just what a 90-degree turn this film makes, and the fact it somehow works.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
73% Sing (2016) If you decide to see Sing (if you have children, you probably will have no choice), see this with a large crowd. Those last 30 minutes are a hoot.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
8/10 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) I didn't think we needed a movie about this subject. I've changed my mind. And, if nothing else, I hope it gets people angry again, because the people who did this to our planet, and killed 11 people in the process, got off too easy.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
9/10 93% La La Land (2016) La La Land is what they call a "humdinger" of a movie.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
86% Lion (2016) You will cry during the greatest Google Maps commercial ever made. Maybe bring a tissue.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
9/10 97% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight is a beautiful piece of filmmaking.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2016
8/10 94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is quite pretentious ... but it's the good kind. It's the smart kind.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2016
7/10 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) The Magnificent Seven is what Suicide Squad should have been.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
6/10 85% Sully (2016) Sully would make a great 35-minute movie‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2016
6/10 60% War Dogs (2016) It will probably be a movie I watch many, many times on cable even if, in spite of its ambitions, it falls short of being important.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2016
4/10 26% Suicide Squad (2016) The story is bad. It's confusing, poorly edited and just way too over the top and contrived.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2016
9/10 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) Pete's Dragon is a better Super 8.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2016
6/10 56% Jason Bourne (2016) Jason Bourne is a perfectly fine movie. (Especially this summer.) But it's hard to get past the fact there's no real reason for this movie to exist.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
9/10 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) It's just like watching a big budget version of The Original Series.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
7/10 73% Ghostbusters (2016) When Ghostbusters focuses on the team and the characters (always Feig's strength), it flourishes. It's only when it gets bogged down in CGI ghosts that, sometimes, it starts to drag.‐ Uproxx

2/10 31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) If you've ever wanted to see Liam Hemsworth pee on an alien while flipping the bird, boy, is Independence Day: Resurgence the movie for you.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2016
7/10 78% The Shallows (2016) It's pretty intense! You never know when this Giant Shark is going to leap out of the water right into your face.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2016
6/10 75% The BFG (2016) The BFG is a nice movie. This sounds like a dig, but it's not. Nice is a good thing.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2016
8/10 94% Finding Dory (2016) Finding Dory is just about as good as Finding Nemo and will probably make you cry. ‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2016
8/10 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) The Conjuring 2 goes by extremely quickly for such a long film and is scarier than the first.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2016
8/10 92% The Nice Guys (2016) This feels like a movie I should already be referencing as an example of the type of movie that studios don't make anymore, but I can't because it's new.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted May 16, 2016
4/10 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) The biggest problem with Alice Through the Looking Glass: There's just not enough story here to make a movie... yet, this movie exists.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted May 11, 2016
5/10 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Woe is to be a mutant.‐ Uproxx
