Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
83% Wind River (2017) It's no Thunderheart. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2017
76% Colossal (2017) Nacho Vigalondo's best and most accomplished, but the real breakout is Jason Sudeikis. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2017
100% Killing Ground (2016) The message comes through loud and clear - stay away from Australia. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2017
100% Thoroughbred (2017) A wickedly sharp, funny, and suspenseful look at the thin divide between our emotions and our actions. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2017
88% The Little Hours (2017) Fairly one-note on the narrative front, but as it delivers plenty of laughs for its duration it's difficult to fault the film for *only* being funny. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 21, 2017
91% I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017) It moves with the force of a woman scorned by the world itself, and fighting back has rarely been this satisfying and entertaining. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 21, 2017
5% Arsenal (2017) Arsenal offers up some minor Nicolas Cage-fueled laughs, but as an action movie it's firing blanks. Skip it and go rent Marauders instead. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 8, 2017
17% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) It might be time to put this franchise down. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 8, 2017
94% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) A relentlessly beautiful film and one of the decade's most exhilarating and satisfying love stories. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 13, 2016
45% Pet (2016) It becomes a more enjoyable movie around the midway point, but it also becomes a lesser one. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 13, 2016
78% The Monster (2016) It fails to generate anything resembling scares or suspense here, and the fault rests almost entirely with the script. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 13, 2016
80% Spectral (2016) More action than horror/sci-fi, but it works well to create an entertaining hybrid fueled by charismatic actors, strong CG work, and some solidly exciting combat sequences. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 13, 2016
85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) For all that feels uninspired and unnecessary in Rogue One, it's no disaster. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 13, 2016
67% Trash Fire (2016) Trash Fire entertains with laughs and thrills, but it also leaves you with an unexpected weight on your chest. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 7, 2016
78% The Master Cleanse (2015) While details grow shaky - the logic and repercussions of certain actions don't seem to hold up - the effect is still an oddly original effort that marks Miller as a filmmaker to watch. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 24, 2016
76% Split (2017) This is as straightforward a thriller as M. Night Shyamalan has delivered in years, and that works both to its advantage and detriment. And no, it's not an even split between the two. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 29, 2016
84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2016) It's a refreshing spin on the familiar that feels at one with the world of 28 Days Later while still plotting its own path in character and emotional weight. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 27, 2016
100% Safe Neighborhood (2016) Safe Neighborhood is a rarity that pairs immense entertainment with dark, vicious thrills. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 27, 2016
94% Arrival (2016) Denis Villeneuve's latest is smart, hopeful, and intimately devastating science fiction. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 23, 2016
36% Blair Witch (2016) Wingard and Barrett's previous films are told with style, wit, and energy that amount to a voice uniquely their own. That voice is sorely missed here. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 16, 2016
87% Don't Breathe (2016) A smart and twisted breath of fresh air for a sub-genre at risk of growing stale. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 29, 2016
No Score Yet Found Footage 3D (2016) An entertaining watch despite its missteps, and it's still far better than most found footage films as it delivers solid performances, smart observations, and a fun ride. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 25, 2016
98% Hell or High Water (2016) All three leads do strong work with characters and a story that never quite approach their level, and together they make the film entertaining and engrossing despite itself. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 20, 2016
48% Edge of Winter (2016) Almost works better as a revenge tale between a tree and a logger than it does a suspenseful story of survival. (It does not work well as either.) ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 13, 2016
89% Blood Father (2016) Low-key action junkies will be satisfied with this 88-minute romp, but Mel Gibson's fans will be rewarded with much more. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 11, 2016
77% In a Valley of Violence (2016) Along with a ton of laughs, a terrific score, a great cast, and the best movie dog since Up the Creek. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 18, 2016
78% The Shallows (2016) The Shallows is a terrific little thriller that might just leave you dreading your next trip to the beach. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 26, 2016
18% Intruder (2016) The bottom line here is don't let this Intruder into your house. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 23, 2016
9% Cell (2016) Let this one go to voicemail, and just re-watch 1408 instead. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 20, 2016
80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) The talents involved commit to their craft and to the film, and the result is a rare horror movie that will have you jumping, smiling, and actually giving a damn. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 8, 2016
97% The Fits (2016) A beautiful, hauntingly precarious coming of age film that uses mystery and an at times dream-like atmosphere to create a mesmerizing tale. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 4, 2016
99% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) A journey fraught with atmosphere, mystery, grim discoveries... and maybe a few laughs? ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 31, 2016
81% Chevalier (2016) The most broadly appealing film to come out of Greece in some time, but it's every bit as deserving of the attention afforded to its crazier cousins. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 29, 2016
72% The Ones Below (2016) Feels in some ways like a '90s thriller à la The Hand that Rocks the Cradle or Arlington Road, but it lacks either of those films' thrills. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 26, 2016
92% The Nice Guys (2016) In a competition between Shane Black first directorial effort and his third, The Nice Guys finishes second. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 24, 2016
48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) It's faint praise, but X-Men: Apocalypse does what it does well enough. The real issue is what it doesn't do. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 13, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Delivers an epic adventure that finds its greatest power by scaling back the superhero antics to reveal the human combatants at their core. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 5, 2016
No Score Yet The Loner (2016) A neon-lit fever dream where culture and sexuality tease an undefined fluidity as Persian and Russian gangsters fight over L.A.'s drug scene. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 17, 2016
28% Colonia (2016) Emma Watson shines even as the film grows dull with contrivances and generic beats. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 15, 2016
95% The Jungle Book (2016) Is it an improvement on Walt Disney's original? Yes, yes it is. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 15, 2016
52% Holidays (2016) Lots of mediocrity here, but two of the shorts -- "Easter" and "Father's Day" -- make it worth the price of admission. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 15, 2016
A- 90% Green Room (2016) Green Room is a vicious, grisly, suspenseful roller-coaster ride with a razor-sharp safety bar, and you are going to get cut. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2016
49% Hardcore Henry (2016) It may not be one of the best video game movies, but it's definitely the most video game movie. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 8, 2016
83% Midnight Special (2016) It introduces us to a boy we're told is meant for something great, but instead it's greatness that the film leaves behind. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 6, 2016
15% The Girl In The Photographs (2016) Good looks can't save the girls in the photographs or THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 1, 2016
40% They're Watching (2016) It makes some progress, but it unsurprisingly stalls where so many found footage films have failed before. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 25, 2016
89% Another Evil (2015) Moves between truly frightening beats, laugh out loud dialogue, and some painful observations, and in doing so it stands well apart from its typical haunted house brethren. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 23, 2016
100% Hush (2016) It's a game of cat and mouse, but while it proceeds as expected in the grand scheme - killer stalking a victim who tries to stay a step ahead - the thrills are in the details. ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 23, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) It so badly wants you to be excited for "Justice League" that it forgets to keep you excited about "Batman v Superman." ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 23, 2016
90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) A tightly-wound, achingly-suspenseful, terrifically-acted thriller that keeps viewers on unsteady ground until the end credits start to roll. ‐ Film School Rejects
