Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 56% Jason Bourne (2016) "Accelerating forward with supercharged determination, "Jason Bourne," the fifth installment of the spy action thriller series, might be a muscular and visceral chapter in the 'Bourne' saga, but it's also a familiar collision. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 26, 2016
B 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Fairly forgettable, but as entertaining summer fare it will more than engage blockbuster-friendly audiences. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 21, 2016
C- 73% Ghostbusters (2016) " If the original scrappy "Ghostbusters" represented the colorful bodegas of a graffiti-riddled 1980s New York, then 2016's version represents the alarmingly homogenized Starbucks version of the Big Apple. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 10, 2016
B+ 86% Time To Choose (2016) "An imperative, essential essay on our climate change crisis, and if it ever feels didactic, it's counterpointed by its very real and very human nature. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 4, 2016
C+ 47% Bloodline: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Bloodline isn't bad TV ... [b]ut it's not necessarily bingeworthy TV either. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted May 27, 2016
D 5% Get a Job (2016) "Get A Job points to either massive studio compromise or a filmmaker who has somehow lost the mastery of his once-auspicious occupation " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Mar 25, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 1 ""Valar Dohaeris" isn't the most dynamic Game of Thrones episode ever, but the morning after a fierce battle is more about picking up the pieces, regrouping and recalibrating than it is rushing headfirst into another battles. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Mar 21, 2016
B 100% Virgin Mountain (Fúsi) "A nuanced portrait of a misfit not as odd as we might have imagined, Virgin Mountain can be a hair too delicate and precious at times, and it has its soft clichés. But its warmth and sensitivity is heartfelt enough to melt its cold exterior. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Feb 29, 2016
C- 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) "While Stiller's movie plays with notions of obsolescence for its vapid heroes, "Zoolander 2" isn't even self-aware enough to extend the examination of relevancy to itself. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Feb 10, 2016
B+ 88% Bridgend (2016) "In its final moments, the nightmarish drama suggests the world around us is on fire and all we can do is watch as silent witnesses to this horror. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Feb 9, 2016
C 41% Jane Got a Gun (2016) "For all its plagues and protracted problems, "Jane Got A Gun" is not the calamity many expected. But it is so buckshot-impaired that its wobbly steps falter often and it never gets a head full of steam. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 30, 2016
A 82% Dark Night ""Dark Night" paints an unsettling portrait of our culture and the current ailing American headspace. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 29, 2016
B 100% Frank & Lola "...a seductive, romantic noir turned psychosexual drama. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 29, 2016
B 60% Sleight "Creative and resourceful with its limited budget, even if "Sleight" doesn't buzz your tower as much as it could, it's still compelling and worthwhile. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 24, 2016
C+ 30% Mojave (2016) "A weird, uneven mixed bag, there's much about "Mojave" that's paradoxically maddening and doesn't really add up. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jan 23, 2016
B- 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "Despite a queasy finish, "The Hateful Eight" floats a notion only a filmmaker like Tarantino would think of: perhaps our collective prejudices and intolerances can be united and overcome by our mutual hostility for someone even more loathsome. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Dec 18, 2015
B 61% Joy (2015) "Joy often plays out like a intoxicated sloppy kiss, but the ardor of its caress is easy to embrace. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Dec 7, 2015
B+ 82% The Revenant (2015) "The Revenant gives no quarter, and in the absence of all goodwill it begs the viewer to confront the terrifying notion of an world without human decency. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Dec 4, 2015
C 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) ""Visual grandeur is nice, but means little in the end when a safe story never rocks the boat." " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Dec 3, 2015
C 81% Chi-Raq (2015) "While its ambition does show a director still aspiring for great heights, its patchy execution only partly restores the faith. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Nov 30, 2015
B 94% Creed (2015) "Rousing in spirit, surprisingly emotional and visually dynamic, filmmaker Ryan Coogler's first studio movie is a worthy successor to the 'Rocky' movies. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Nov 18, 2015
80% The Knick: Season 2 Episode 5 "The triage in the Knick does make for some arresting sequences and overall it feels like the lull before the storm. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Nov 16, 2015
100% The Knick: Season 2 Episode 4 "As much as we admire the dexterity and nimbleness of filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, The Knick writers and showrunners Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, should be given credit for the bon mots and more of "Wonderful Surprises." " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Nov 9, 2015
100% The Knick: Season 2 Episode 3 "Overall, "The Best with the Best to Get the Best" isn't a very showy Steven Soderbergh effort, and Cliff Martinez's music is also a little muted, but the show's candle-lit look is still fantastic and Soderbergh still does a lot with a little. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Nov 2, 2015
91% The Knick: Season 2 Episode 1 "It's a dizzyingly elegant and impressive start. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Oct 26, 2015
A 100% The Knick: Season 2 Episode 2 "The devilishly intrigued look on Thackery's face is the perfect oh s--- alarm that smash cuts to black. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Oct 24, 2015
C+ 73% Miles Ahead (2016) ""A movie that believes it's more radical than it actually is." " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Oct 12, 2015
A- 100% Junun "An artistic leap towards left-of-center that informed everything that followed, "Junun" is that quickly recorded, off-the-cuff EP that bands release between fully-fleshed out albums. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Oct 10, 2015
B 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "A quaint and a romanticized look at largely unsung American heroes. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Oct 4, 2015
C+ 72% He Named Me Malala (2015) "Malala's undeterred fearlessness in the face of extremists should be applauded, and she is rightfully a model for young women around the planet. But ultimately, this amazing girl is underserved by an unremarkable, congenial and safe portrait. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Oct 3, 2015
98% Finders Keepers (2015) ""Finders Keepers" tries to find the humanity in the absurd, and while it surely has its share of moving moments, the conciliation of the sensational and profound is hard to reconcile. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Oct 1, 2015
A 90% (T)ERROR (2015) "A gripping parallel investigation of illegitimate counter-terrorist stratagems that not only considers the moral consequences of informing, and the wider troubling landscape around it, but does so from a deeply intimate and remarkable perspective. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 30, 2015
B 85% The Walk (2015) "Damn if the sublime last act doesn't wash away most of the movie's early and clumsy aftertaste. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 26, 2015
B+ 96% #DEL Do Not Merge ""Finders Keepers" tries to find the humanity in the absurd, and while it surely has its share of moving moments, the conciliation of the sensational and profound is hard to reconcile. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 25, 2015
D+ 24% Captive (2015) "There's so much to puzzle and ponder over with "Captive," a movie that could be mistaken as bold with its obdurate approach, but is actually shockingly flat. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 18, 2015
D+ 48% Freeheld (2015) "Loses sight of the humans at its heart and fails to find a way to compellingly dramatize an important story. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 13, 2015
B+ 86% Steve Jobs (2015) ""Steve Jobs" is a buzzingly entertaining movie about an obdurate radical with a broken operating system who still managed to transform the world around us, how we communicate, and the course of technological history. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 6, 2015
B 94% Room (2015) ""Room" has unforgettable, must-witness performances and its soulful mother and son narrative is one of the most touching dynamics you'll see in theaters this year. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 5, 2015
B+ 92% Anomalisa (2015) "The delightfully downcast and sometimes masterful "Anomalisa" proves there is more than one way to skin a similar cat, and the unbearable darkness of being can still radiate glimmers of beauty. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Sep 5, 2015
D- 42% American Ultra (2015) "A perfect storm of aggressively repulsive choices, it's a queasy bad trip worth avoiding at all costs. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Aug 18, 2015
D+ 79% The Mend (2015) "[The film] mostly misses the mark with irredeemable, unlikable and hopeless characters you don't want to spend a second more with than you have to. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Aug 17, 2015
C 65% Ricki And The Flash (2015) ""A patchy family drama wherein no one element is as good or convincing as its lead star who carries the movie in every frame." " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Aug 4, 2015
B- 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "Conventional and too long, but rousing and entertaining. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 31, 2015
B 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "As a sensory escapist experience with laughs, pleasures, and excitements, 'Rogue Nation' will likely be the most satisfying mission audiences choose to accept repeatedly. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 24, 2015
C 61% Southpaw (2015) "If "Southpaw" can frequently brutalize physically, the picture rarely can bruise emotionally or spiritually, and this distinction makes all the difference in the world. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 21, 2015
C+ 81% Ant-Man (2015) "Marvel's "Ocean's Eleven" meets "Iron Man" mélange does have its fleeting pleasures, but is ultimately a minor, milder MCU effort. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 8, 2015
C 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) "Longtime fans will walk away feeling the series is obsolete, while newcomers will be puzzled by the upgrade. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 30, 2015
B- 74% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 1 "All the character's torment threatens to overwhelm the show and hopefully as plot takes over, their angsts won't be so underlined. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 21, 2015
B- 64% True Detective : Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Still, overwrought or not, the narrative is intriguing and the performances mostly absorbing. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 21, 2015
B+ 71% Jurassic World (2015) "The fourth 'Jurassic Park' film excels at credible world building and this lays a rock solid foundation for the much-needed suspension of disbelief. " ‐ The Playlist
