T-Meter Title | Year
9/10 No Score Yet I Am Shakespeare: The Henry Green Story (2017) With its minimalist style, Stephen Dest's documentary I Am Shakespeare: The Henry Green Story realizes that its true narrative thrust lies not in flashy graphics or recreations but within the power of the spoken word. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Bat sin fan dim ji yan yuk cha siu bau (The Eight Immortals Restaurant: The Untold Story) (1993) It feels as though [Yau] struggled to craft two wildly different films here and decided to edit them both together in a Frankenstein's monster fashion that never fully clicks. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 75% Barefoot: The Mark Baumer Story (2019) By the end of Barefoot: The Mark Baumer Story, Baumer remains somewhat enigmatic. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% City Hall (2020) Wiseman does not editorialize with narration or numbers, merely letting his cameras roll unobtrusively, capturing clips of dialogue, speeches, and seemingly inconsequential meetings. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 33% Darkness in Tenement 45 (2020) The film is revelatory for its ability to craft so much atmosphere with a limited budget and is aided further by a strong cast of mostly unknown actors throughout. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 74% Black Box (2020) Thanks to Athie's delivery and Osei-Kuffour Jr.'s sure-footed style, there's just enough in Black Box to make for a mild goosebump or two this Halloween. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 80% Color Adjustment (1991) Omissions aside, Color Adjustment provides enough footage and interviews that clearly show the early struggles for a voice in the medium. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 40% Let's Scare Julie (2020) Characters and plot points seem to vanish or reappear with little resolution. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet The Estate (2020) Things get nasty and bloody, for sure. But what makes this neon-soaked nihilistic romp perpetually entertaining is the round of bravura performances from its leads. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Rocky Mountain Fast Guy (2019) Considering this is McElroy's debut, it's easy to forgive whatever minor flaws fill this otherwise rollicking road-trip romp through the gravelly paths one takes to accomplish his dreams. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Gather (2020) Rawal's movie offers a fascinating, visually striking glimpse of just how the seeds of oppression and racism can thrive for generations. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Friend of the World (2020) Friend of the World has more on its mind than showing us the end of the world as we know it, and that is fine. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 83% Baby Frankenstein (2018) Baby Frankenstein is stitched together with its heart in the right place. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Microplastic Madness (2020) Microplastic Madness not only gives students a voice in the matter of ocean health, but it also has the potential to give others, young and old, inspiration to make a change. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 57% Star Light (2020) Star Light depends on the number of teens-in-peril horror films a viewer has consumed. Still, there are certainly far inferior options cluttering the on-demand catalog, and it can be appreciated for the care of the craft placed within. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Myth (2020) DiLorenzo and crew should be commended for crafting a smaller feature that, with a bit more polish, could easily be fleshed out into a provocative big-budget drama. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 89% Benjamin (2020) The script crackles with endlessly sharp throwaway lines, astute observations of the underground "art scene," and sweet, well-executed montages. - Film Threat EDIT

3/10 33% A Deadly Legend (2020) A Deadly Legend is a hodge-podge of horror elements that never add up to anything of substance and undercut by a budget that is well under its aspirations. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 70% All Joking Aside (2020) All Joking Aside gives us but a glimpse of the pain behind the smiles, but like an evening at a comedy club, leaves us with a good-natured grin. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 67% Black Ops (2020) It's worth viewing to witness Paton's audacious vision in hopes that he will one day receive a budget that will allow him to fully realize his storytelling acumen. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 89% Madagasikara (2020) By keeping it small and personal, the resonance of Madigasikara is all the stronger in its storytelling. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Summer of Mesa (2020) A wispy, delicate, dreamlike feature that showcases the beauty and heartache of summertime romance. - Film Threat EDIT

3/10 No Score Yet The Luring (2020) There are some moderately decent performances that would pass muster in a more traditional slasher flick, but since The Luring relies heavily more on dramatic tension than gore, the cast is not able to shoulder that burden. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Stolen Season (2019) Having it anchored by Siegeworth's modulated portrayal of a woman desperate for resolution earns Stolen Summer its emotional core, which is essential when handling a subject that, despite its beauty, can be tangled with intensity. - Film Threat EDIT
