T-Meter Title | Year
83% The Others (2001) It's not easy to essentially take Plato's Allegory of the Cave and revamp it into a psychological horror-thriller, but the English-language debut of Alejandro Amenabar paid off in its creative risks and twist finale that left jaws on the floor. - CinemaBlend EDIT

5/10 54% The First Purge (2018) While trying to hit the basic markers that have come to define a Purge film, The First Purge comes up empty when mining real-life tragedies as the backdrop for a summer movie. - IGN Movies EDIT

6/10 32% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) If you like this kind of standard wartime folktale, The Catcher Was a Spy is at the very least an acceptable watch. - IGN Movies EDIT

94% Carol (2015) While Mara and Chandler deliver incredible performances, Blanchett is a vision to behold. - CinemaBlend EDIT

1.5/5 17% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) The film has all the building blocks to be a great fantasy ride, and Diesel is clearly enthused to be a part of it. As it turns out, though, passion isn't everything. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3/5 77% Goosebumps (2015) One of those rare films that looks bad based on all empirical evidence, but is actually enjoyable... for the most part. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3.5/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) There are moments of pure genius, and scenes that miss their mark. The end result is a fine film, but not a major achievement. - CinemaBlend EDIT

4/5 86% Steve Jobs (2015) The Steve Jobs film we want, and deserve. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3.5/5 91% Mississippi Grind (2015) When I think of this movie, I think of the subtlety in Mendelsohn's face - the camera close up - when he loses everything. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2/5 10% Stonewall (2015) While not a horrible movie, this feature is not worthy of calling itself a Stonewall movie. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2.5/5 38% We Are Your Friends (2015) In its defense, it's really difficult to make DJing look physically dramatic on camera, let alone emotional. But, damn it, Zac Efron tries his hardest. - CinemaBlend EDIT

4.5/5 82% Mistress America (2015) Mistress America is Noah Baumbach moving at the speed of Gilmore Girls. Yet, amid all the chaos and noise is order. And it's wonderful. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3/5 64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) The only promise Ricki ever really made was featuring another eye-popping Meryl Streep role, and it delivered in that regard. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3.5/5 88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) Covers a lot of ground in recounting N.W.A.'s story. It begins and ends on high notes, though it loses its way ever so slightly in the middle. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2/5 27% Vacation (2015) A two-hour movie that feels a lot longer. - CinemaBlend EDIT

4.5/5 81% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) If Wes Anderson created a sweet coming-of-age story, it'd probably look something like Me and Earl, only instead of his whimsicality, this film has brutal honestly. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3/5 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) The characters might not stray too far from their stereotypes and the jokes might be repetitive, but you're more than likely to leave the theater downloading the soundtrack on your phone. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2/5 60% Maggie (2015) Trudges along at a glacial pace, and somehow manages to suck the life out of the story of a young girl's last weeks. - CinemaBlend EDIT

1/5 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) Plays into just about every sort of cliche you could possible think of with little to no surprises. Sad. - CinemaBlend EDIT

4.5/5 95% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) By the time you finish watching Going Clear, you'll be left "clear" and hungry for justice. - CinemaBlend EDIT

4/5 84% While We're Young (2015) One of Noah Baumbach's more accessible films, with solid performances all around. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2/5 32% Chappie (2015) Can't seem to put the pieces together properly, and Chappie ends up being [Blomkamp's] weakest work yet. - CinemaBlend EDIT

1/5 16% The Lazarus Effect (2015) I'm placing all of the blame on the script and filmmaking, but that's because the actors can only do so much with what they're given. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3/5 62% Maps to the Stars (2015) An entertaining entertainment satire that's long in the making, even though there's nothing we haven't seen before. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2.5/5 64% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) While the sequel isn't bad, it lives up to its name as Second Best. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2.5/5 11% Seventh Son (2015) Harmless enough, and some of you looking for a flashy blockbuster full of mythological monsters and witches powered by CGI will find this passable for entertainment. - CinemaBlend EDIT
