Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) Ultimately, "Thank You For Your Service" is commendable and well, serviceable. But it's more of an honorable discharge rather than something you fete with medals of esteem. ‐ The Playlist

B+ 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) At the helm and in complete command of his movie with dark, ambient magic, Denis Villeneuve crafts a mysterious noir thriller the pushes existential boundaries, and nails the essence of the "Blade Runner" spirit.‐ The Playlist

B 75% Last Flag Flying (2017) In its deeply affecting final moments, where Linklater beautiful folds the movie's threads and themes, "Last Flag Flying" coalesces into a poignant portrait of honor, the bonds of brotherhood and coming to terms with mortality. ‐ The Playlist

C+ 54% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) 'Ninjago' is mildly entertaining, and kids should find it pleasurable enough, but it's missing that special spark, the kind of joyful flicker that compels children to ask for the movie on DVD at Christmas. ‐ The Playlist

Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
B- 65% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Frears' lightweight, charismatic movie isn't about to change cinema, but it's the kind of easy, breezy crowd pleaser that wins festival audience awards and easily enchants audiences of all ages.‐ The Playlist

B+ 95% First Reformed (2017) "First Reformed" sees Paul Schrader return to his roots, and through the aesthetics of grace, find his way home. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2017
C- 50% The Glass Castle (2017) It's almost as if "Short Term 12" was a fluke - "The Glass Castle" has none of the dynamic vibrancy and revealing, emotional intelligence of Destin Daniel Cretton's winning sophomore effort.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
D 16% The Dark Tower (2017) A curiously unimaginative world with zero dimension.‐ The Playlist

Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2017
B- 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Training Wheels is entertaining, but still owes too much to Tony Stark.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017

Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2017
D- 16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) An incoherent mess with a plot so convoluted its impaired story points to signs of narrative brain damage.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
D- 16% The Mummy (2017) "The Mummy" is a dated, empirically dismal, laughable excuse to kick off a franchise, and it should have remained entombed.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
C+ 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Molded by the mighty Gods, but as shaped by mere mortals Wonder Woman's mettle and beliefs can only be so wonderfully divine.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted May 29, 2017
C- 19% Baywatch (2017) Ultimately more forgettable then deplorable, "Baywatch" isn't so much a disastrous spill in the ocean as it is disposable garbage making a mess. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
D 53% War Machine (2017) Shapeless, astonishingly flat, and spectacularly ill-conceived, "War Machine" is the painful kind of satire that's neither funny nor incisive.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
D+ 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) The film is not unlike a classic rock super group reuniting to play all the greatest hits, with the payday at the end as the only true motivation, rather than returning with something new to say about their work.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
B 68% Alien: Covenant (2017) Come for the chestbursters, the movie says, stay for the deeper meditation of cruel Gods, mere mortals, and creators gone mad.‐ The Playlist

B 87% Abundant Acreage Available (2017) This lovely little story sensitively absorbs.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2017

Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2017
A- 74% Thirst Street (2017) Thirst Street is just too wickedly crafty to not feel ardent affection for. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2017
B+ 43% Flower (2017) "Flower" is gifted with the charismatic, uber-magnetic personality of Zoey Deutch, a terrific force of nature who shines throughout.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
C 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Occasionally gripping - its opening sequence ripped straight out of the anime - 'Ghost' is visually arresting and action-packed, but far too often the movie dips into a lukewarm flaccidness. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
A- 94% Gemini (2017) Intriguing, suspenseful and funny to boot. Aaron Katz's best movie to date.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
C 42% Song to Song (2017) The result is disheartening and may even leave you resentful, with the knowledge that a true poet is painting with the same splendorous canvas, and yet still offering diminishing returns.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2017
C- 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) "Beauty And The Beast" feels like a cynical, uninspired rehash seemingly created just to make a fiscal year sound promising to shareholders. This is a product that's more manufactured than inspired.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
B+ 64% Axolotl Overkill (2017) If "Axolotl Overkill" is style over substance, fine, but oh boy, that kinetic style. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017

Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
D+ 43% Gold (2017) Matthew McConaughey suffers the indignity of playing repulsive on the inside and outside with nothing to show for it. ‐ The Playlist

Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
D+ 35% Live By Night (2017) "Live By Night" is missing bite. And without teeth, all the picture can do is slosh around without focus earning the unfortunate distinction of a directorial career worst for Affleck. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
B 84% Silence (2017) If immaculately realized, "Silence" is also an increasingly monotonous, patience-testing slow-burner.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
B 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) A thrilling, but flawed drama that considers the cost of fighting for one's beliefs. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
B 92% Hidden Figures (2017) With spunky determination and spirit, Melfi's film manages to calculate the path to a winning formula that succeeds.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2016
C 93% Fences (2016) There's nothing lost in the translation of "Fences," but its high fidelity means there's little, if any, inspiration to be found within. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2016
C 55% Michael Moore In TrumpLand (2016) His ungainly presentation and shaky arguments make for an uneven polemic that never takes fire, even when doused in gasoline.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2016
C- 38% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) Anyone hoping for more than a superficial on-the-run chase movie will probably wish Reacher had stayed home, instead of going back. ‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2016
C+ 29% Jacqueline Argentine (2016) The movie's own self-doubts about life and art may have arrived for too late for the average viewer, though it's this questioning and dreamy conclusion that actually binds Jacqueline (Argentina) and give it some small satisfactions.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2016
B 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) The Lost City Of Z won't be for all viewers, but its delicate devotion to itself is something sure to inspire admiration and obsessives.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2016
C+ 46% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) PTSD 3D drama with the motion smoothing feature still on.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
A- 96% 13th (2016) Intelligently told, and reflective of Ava DuVernay herself: assured, articulate and bold.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
C- 36% Daguerrotype (Le secret de la chambre noire) (2016) A slow moving haze. Its half-interesting ideas never crystallize.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2016
A 85% Kicks (2016) Lyrical and gritty... it's an astonishingly gripping and accomplished first feature.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2016
C- 14% Planetarium (2017) "Eventually just becomes aggravatingly nebulous and in turn dull."‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
C+ 58% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Cianfrance never squeezes the life out of his picture, but like a hug that overstays its welcome, its doting embrace is too tight for comfort.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2016
C- 26% Suicide Squad (2016) Suicide Squad desperately wants to be irreverent, badass and unscrupulous, but it's patchy moral murkiness is only PG-13 dark.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2016
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
