Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
90% Gerald's Game (2017) Gerald's Game isn't earth shattering, and it's definitely not sexy. Still, the movie works as a late night, B-picture experience, bolstered primarily by its smart dialogue and emotional cunning.‐ Missoula Independent

91% Super Dark Times (2017) a perverse and strange exploration of real horror, via the unsteady, ill-equipped perspective of doltish teenagers.‐ Missoula Independent

70% The Unknown Girl (La fille inconnue) (2017) The kind of picture you see, are momentarily changed by and then try but fail to encapsulate later with a friend over coffee.‐ Missoula Independent

100% Strong Island (2017) The film's central murder carries a potent political subtext about the black experience of the criminal justice system in America, but, more than that, this is a film about loss and irrepressible grief.‐ Missoula Independent

74% Landline (2017) I love this movie most of all because of its career-defining performance by Slate. Her work here reminds me of Tom Hanks from '80s comedies. ‐ Missoula Independent

86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Ingrid's obsessive behavior is the dark matter fueling this comedy, and for about half of the film's brief 97 minutes, we're running on fumes.‐ Missoula Independent

15% The Dark Tower (2017) The Dark Tower's rich cosmology has been condensed into a palatable, archetypal story of good versus evil with laughably bad dialogue to see us through in a merciful 95 minutes.‐ Missoula Independent

67% To the Bone (2017) Through conspicuous examples and only slightly stilted exposition, To the Bone educates us on the ins and outs of the diagnosis.‐ Missoula Independent

4/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) A little carnage goes a long way when it's punctuated with sweeping money shots of thousands of soldiers on an expansive, haunted beach. You don't experience the misery in the misery-you feel it in the spaces in between.‐ doghatesfilm.com

42% The Bad Batch (2017) The Bad Batch has a thin story and an incoherent world populated by unconvincing characters, and I felt bored and depressed watching it.‐ doghatesfilm.com

No Score Yet Unseen (2016) Through candid interviews and images of the impoverished Mount Pleasant community, Unseen acts as a haunting indictment of a police force that failed its citizens.‐ Missoula Independent

No Score Yet Olancho (2016) Directors Chris Valdes and Ted Griswold have seemingly impossibly intimate access to their subjects. With gorgeous photography, they capture real, poignant moments.‐ Missoula Independent

47% Sand Castle (2017) Sand Castle isn't exactly a modern classic in the tradition of Platoon, but it feels authentic in a way that I suspect those touched by war will find cathartic and comforting. ‐ Missoula Independent

66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) No one thinks these are good movies. The question becomes, "Did this film numb your senses enough to forget the troubles of your life for 2 hours and 19 minutes?" Sort of!‐ doghatesfilm.com
