T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 72% The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020) It pivots back to childish fare, like elves carousing to "Who Let the Dogs Out" or another baffling musical number that reinforces Russell's confusing hot-Santa vibe while also stalling the plot. - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 84% Happiest Season (2020) You'll want to spend every future Christmas with Abby, Harper, and DuVall. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 65% A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting (2020) A Babysitter's Guide doesn't take enough advantage of the holiday's invitation for mischief and mayhem, let alone costumes and alter egos. Shadow monsters aside, this could have taken place any old night. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 80% Over the Moon (2020) Parents may wind up ugly-sobbing while their children dance along to Chang'e's pop numbers... - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 89% Kajillionaire (2020) It's been a weird year, but regardless of what world this would have come out in, Kajillionaire is one of the best films of 2020. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 91% Enola Holmes (2020) There will always be a need for stories that carve out spaces in history for people other than white men, and a plucky girl detective who knows her way around a corset and a cryptograph is herself a much-needed role model. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 83% Psych 2: Lassie Come Home (2019) Psych had already proven with its first movie that it could grow and change with its fanbase, but this latest installment commits to putting each character on a new path... - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 62% The Call of the Wild (2020) After the last few years of cheesy fare like A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Journey, this new adaptation is head of the pack thanks to its CGI St. Bernard-Scotch Collie mix with slightly unsettlingly human eyes. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 38% Downhill (2020) It is a net positive for the universe that these two comedy greats finally got to share a screen together. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 65% Gretel & Hansel (2020) It's all very pretty, but it could have tasted better. - Den of Geek EDIT

1/5 13% Dolittle (2020) The core message is we belong together, which is ironic considering what a jumble this is. - Den of Geek EDIT

1/5 22% Like a Boss (2020) The movie is so formulaic it may as well be a by numbers makeup tutorial. - Den of Geek EDIT

2/5 36% 6 Underground (2019) The second half dips into problematic territory, with a rich white savior who seems more interested in fixing one problem instead of the root cause. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 68% Bombshell (2019) Theron's voice, the coolly appraising gaze, and the set of her shoulders all construct a trick-mirror reflection of a figure who is wholly sympathetic within the bounds of this story yet still intensely problematic outside of it. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 82% Queen & Slim (2019) Melina Matsoukas and Lena Waithe's brilliant protest of police brutality nonetheless chooses to find the small moments of joy in a nightmare situation. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) What makes writer-director Banks' take so winningly subversive though is that it reorients the male gaze of the original versions to present an entertaining... action film that doesn't just pay lip service to female empowerment but... empowers its women. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 88% Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein (2019) The main benefit of its brevity is that you can fit in multiple viewings without breaking a sweat-something wholeheartedly recommended. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 63% Child's Play (2019) You might want to look into the lifetime warranty on this thing. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 92% The Endless (2018) Other movies will throw together the leads as brothers for convenience, for quick, manufactured pathos. Here, you don't for a second doubt the depth of Justin and Aaron's bond, fractured as it is. - Den of Geek EDIT

2/5 24% Psychopaths (2017) This assault on the senses drowns out any potential narrative through-line, trapping viewers like one of its victims: locked in a cramped box in a basement, far from help. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 68% Permission (2018) Brian Crano's Permission...is a charming and occasionally devastating romantic drama with a clear-eyed premise. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 36% Live Cargo (2017) Perhaps we're meant to be the outsiders, peering in to the roiling waves without a clear sense of what's happening just beneath the surface. - Den of Geek EDIT
