Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
93% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Nothing less than the smartest, most nuanced, most ambitious Star Wars film ever made.‐ Film Journal International

93% The Disaster Artist (2017) Painful, but it's positive, too. It's walking that line that takes The Disaster Artist beyond cringe comedy to an unexpectedly touching tribute to a 21st-century icon.‐ Film Journal International

92% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) One of the best performances of the year toplines Sebastián Lelio's stirring drama of grief and identity.‐ Film Journal International

13% Geostorm (2017) It's such a harmless nothing of a movie that being being bounced around in my seat and sprayed in the face with water was actually pretty fun. And it kept me from falling asleep, besides. Geostorm is the perfect 4D movie. Put it on the poster.‐ Pajiba

88% Kills on Wheels (Tiszta szívvel) (2017) Director Attila Till subverts expectations with a dark crime comedy more about its characters' inner lives than blood and body counts.‐ Film Journal International

71% Happy Death Day (2017) Happy Death Day is stupid, but not in the fun way. ‐ Pajiba

86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Wonder Woman gets a real-life origin story in the bold, compassionate, sexy Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. ‐ Film Journal International

86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Does Battle of the Sexes break new ground in terms of cinematic form? No. But it's an exceedingly well-done film... ‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
34% American Assassin (2017) With American Assassin, Michael Cuesta (Kill the Messenger) has made a movie where Michael Keaton bites Taylor Kitsch's ear off unspeakably boring.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
54% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) Though suffering from diminishing returns, the LEGO franchise still has some spark.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Vaughn has crafted a film that's stylish and amusing and makes wonderful use of Elton John, and that's not something every director can manage.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
85% It (2017) The great comeback of Pennywise the killer clown is scary and surprisingly fun.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
9% Tulip Fever (2017) I don't want to make Tulip Fever sound more interesting than it is. It's not bad enough to fall into "so bad it's good territory."‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
40% Death Note (2017) Adam Wingard's manga adaptation about a teen terror and his killer book does a half-decent job of embracing its weirdness.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
87% Wind River (2017) If nothing to write home about, it's still not awful. You could catch this on HBO and be pretty impressed. ‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Not gonna lie to you: I wasn't expecting to like Annabelle: Creation.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
9% The Emoji Movie (2017) No matter how bad you expected The Emoji Movie to be, believe me when I tell you, from the bottom of my heart, that it is so much worse.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk check in with climate crusader Al Gore in this effective, if too loosely structured, doc.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
77% Atomic Blonde (2017) Charlize Theron is a Stoli-swilling superspy extraordinaire in David Leitch's worthy follow-up to John Wick. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2017
92% Dunkirk (2017) It is a good movie. One bordering on great, even. The best movie Christopher Nolan's done in years... and I say that as someone who likes (most, sorry The Dark Knight Rises) Nolan movies.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
100% The Girl Without Hands (La Jeune fille sans mains) (2017) Visually innovative fairytale adaptation should appeal to fans of experimental animation. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
78% The Beguiled (2017) I love this movie.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
86% Okja (2017) As in Snowpiercer and The Host, Bong presents a dangerous world where people at all stages on the moral spectrum just have to do their best to survive. There are no easy victories or pat solutions.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) If War of the Planet of the Apes doesn't take the summer blockbuster to new heights, it's still an exceptionally well-crafted film. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
45% Rough Night (2017) It's not as funny as recent comedy hits like Spy, Shame, or Scott Pilgrim, but it'll do the job if you're looking for a boozy night out with the ladies.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
88% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes at Night is a masterpiece of subjective storytelling. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
87% Pete's Dragon (2016) A very solid offering that retains some of the magic of Disney's best.‐ Polygon
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Ghost in the Shell is bland, soulless garbage.‐ Polygon
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
92% Wonder Woman (2017) Wonder Woman might not be the greatest thing ever, but it is a damn fine film, and full admission: I spent a good chunk of it honest-to-God misty eyed.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
67% The Wall (2017) It's not that good. It's not even interestingly bad.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
68% Alien: Covenant (2017) Alien: Covenant has all the same problems that Prometheus did, but the highs are higher, and the lows aren't as low.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
89% Hounds of Love (2017) Tension escalates in this spare Australian thriller. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
37% Snatched (2017) Rote and only intermittently amusing.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted May 10, 2017
29% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Ham-fisted mish-mosh occasionally delivers the goods. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
38% How to Be a Latin Lover (2017) How to Be a Latin Lover reads like a watered-down version of something frequent Marino collaborator David Wain might have done. Very watered-down. Like five parts Wain to fifteen parts water. Which is better than I expected, if less than I wanted.‐ Pajiba

89% LA 92 (2017) A you-are-there approach elevates this LA riots doc above the realm of a dry history lesson.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
97% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) You have to see this movie on the big screen if at all possible. There's a 2001 Space Gate-esque sequence that had me in full hand-to-my-heart mode.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
84% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) Scrappy and surreal, this GKids release should appeal to both eccentric teenagers and onetime eccentric teenagers with fond memories of "Daria" and "Clone High."‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
48% Wilson (2017) Wilson works better in ten-minute segments than it does as a complete movie.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) For fans of the '91 Beauty and the Beast, you'd do better rewatching that movie than watching this. But you can't exactly see the '91 movie on a big screen anymore, so this one is a fine (if inferior) substitution.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
67% Life (2017) There's nothing even remotely inventive at play here. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Better than expected, worse than hoped for.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2017
80% Personal Shopper (2017) There's one element, though, that keeps Personal Shopper together as a compelling whole, and that is Stewart's performance as the grieving, shell-shocked, disengaged yet yearning -- for connection, for an end to the emotional numbness -- Maureen.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
99% Get Out (2017) It's a great movie -- one of the best horror films in recent memory, in fact.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
63% Before I Fall (2017) Before I Fall is a melodramatic, "inspirational" bit of teen schlock where everyone in it is a sociopath.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
25% Table 19 (2017) The script could have used another draft or five to tease out character intricacies. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
98% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) An upbeat, even charming look at the lives of a group of orphans living in a French group home.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) 2017 could use a good comedy, and it finally has one, in the form of The LEGO Batman Movie.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) There's enough good to make A Cure for Wellness watchable, but too much bad to elevate it above the merely middling.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2017
7% Rings (2017) There's the odd jump scare -- Samara, barely present in her own movie, seen through a keyhole; an umbrella loudly popping open right into the camera -- but that's about it.‐ Pajiba
