T-Meter Title | Year
82% Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) It's just such a joyful rarity to watch a late entry in a franchise that feels like a worthwhile addition to the universe, one that cherishes its characters' legacies and pays respect to them in lovely ways. - Film Inquiry EDIT

64% Spree (2020) We need more filmmakers in the industry who are able to tackle deep, complex subjects like this with such humorous grace while still retaining the dark elements at the core of this story, and Kotlyarenko definitely succeeded in that respect. - Film Inquiry EDIT

85% She Dies Tomorrow (2020) It was undeniably ambitious and fascinating enough to sustain my attention, but not nearly to the degree other modern horror films have been. - Film Inquiry EDIT

30% Bloodshot (2020) Bloodshot attempts to do something different, but retains so many of the clichés its predecessors have befallen to. - Film Inquiry EDIT

84% Waves (2019) Waves is, simply put, the greatest film of the year. Everything Shults has crafted before has built to this, a magnum opus of brutal emotional devastation and healing amelioration. - Film Inquiry EDIT

98% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2020) It's hard to call Sciamma's vision anything short of a triumph on nearly every level. It starts off as enticing and mysterious, but quickly transports the viewer into an even deeper stupor of romance. - Film Inquiry EDIT

87% The Truth (La vérité) (2020) It doesn't completely stick the landing, but it's worth viewing, and Kore-eda shows tremendous future potential if he wishes to continue expanding outside of Japanese cinema. - Film Inquiry EDIT

83% Ad Astra (2019) Ad Astra is not without its flaws, but Gray's science-fiction endeavor is ultimately one of the best films of the year. - Film Inquiry EDIT

52% The Lion King (2019) It's a surprisingly efficient remake that acts as both a touching tribute to its predecessor and a breathtaking standalone epic in its own right. - Film Inquiry EDIT

89% Missing Link (2019) Sweet, charming, and beautifully unique, Missing Link deserves only the highest praise. - Film Inquiry EDIT
