Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/4 91% Don't Come Back from the Moon (2019) For a movie that is supposedly about the consequences of absentee fathers, it sure has little of importance to say about the families they desert. The Moon deserves better symbolism.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 92% Stan & Ollie (2018) The clichés are there, but its heart beats loud enough for us to embrace and forgive them.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 66% Tyrel (2018) I've seen far worse movies this year, but I've not seen one that left me feeling as indifferent and bored as this one.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 100% The World Before Your Feet (2018) This well-made and intriguing documentary isn't about New York so much as it is about an unusual idea seen to fruition.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 83% Creed II (2018) Creed II falls victim to the sins of sequelitis-it's bigger, louder and more grandiose than its predecessor-yet manages to right itself by not losing focus on the humanity of its central characters.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 95% Amazing Grace (2018) 'Amazing Grace' is two days of Baptist church condensed to 90 minutes and injected directly into your soul.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 74% Chef Flynn (2018) For a film whose subject rightfully demands to be seen as more than just a kid, Chef Flynn does way too much coddling.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 24% Nobody's Fool (2018) Nobody's Fool wastes its comic goodwill and performances by wallowing in the same tired story elements Tyler Perry has been milking on TV and in his movies for decade.‐ RogerEbert.com

82% The Other Side of the Wind (2018) The notion of Welles inadvertently begetting Cannibal Holocaust and The Blair Witch Project is far more delicious than anything presented in this 122-minute edit of his last film.‐ Denver Westword

3.5/4 96% Hale County This Morning, This Evening (2018) As a record of African-American imagery, it's not just an evaluation of 'how we are seen,' it's also a corrective that replaces stereotype with visual poetry.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 97% I Am Not a Witch (2018) Nyoni does an excellent job of keeping an absurd tone while losing none of the gravity of the situation. ‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) [Lee] is firing on all cylinders here. BlacKkKlansman is a true conversation starter, and probably a conversation ender as well.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 96% Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (2018) One is left feeling that this is the generically structured and tamer 'approved' version of a much richer story.‐ RogerEbert.com

19% Tyler Perry's Acrimony (2018) Despite all its Fatal Attraction-style trappings, Acrimony is a bloated drama at odds with itself and its characters. Who exactly are we supposed to root for here?‐ Village Voice

3/4 52% Ismael's Ghosts (Les fantômes d'Ismaël) (2018) The film feels very personal, as if writer/director Arnaud Desplechin were sorting out his thoughts, processes and demons onscreen.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) This is a film where a character is literally whitewashed, an act that makes him more agreeable afterwards. Isle of Dogs treats this as a sight gag. It plays more like a confession.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 97% Black Panther (2018) One of the year's best films, and one that transcends the superhero genre to emerge as an epic of operatic proportions.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 27% Proud Mary (2018) "Proud Mary" doesn't deserve the lack of faith its studio has in it. In fact, it's almost good, so close to success that its flaws truly become frustrating. ‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Washington gives one of his rare bad performances here, turning Roman into an improv sketch filled with tics, mannerisms and an overreliance on his attire.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% Lover For A Day (L'amant d'un jour) (2018) Garrel and his screenwriter, the legendary Jean-Claude Carriere manage to cram a lot of philosophical ideas and concepts into the short running time, but I found myself caring less about them.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 92% Fences (2016) The masterful thing about Denzel Washington's direction here is that he doesn't exactly open up the play. Instead, he opens up the visual frame around the players.‐ RogerEbert.com
