T-Meter Title | Year
91% The Martian (2015) The Martian is exactly the reason why we watch movies. It's fun, exciting, and a thrilling spectacle with deep emotional payoffs and strong performances from its all-star cast. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

92% Sicario (2015) Sicario looks to be introducing even wider audiences to Denis Villeneuve, but it's also a film that will leave them uneasy and unsettled. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

9% Fantastic Four (2015) You've got to hand it to Josh Trank for making a movie that fails in almost every way. Fantastic Four is just frustrating because you can see hints of something interesting, but without the knowledge to build upon those ideas. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

68% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) Although it doesn't completely accomplish its mission, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. fits in with the pack as a lighthearted, charming, and stylish take on the spy genre. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

27% Vacation (2015) Most of the comedy just doesn't work, which is odd because the premise sets up its characters to go from crazy moment to crazy moment. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

47% Irrational Man (2015) Allen's messier films appear to be worth more than the sum of their parts and, at least on a thematic level, Irrational Man seems to be hitting that mark. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

19% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) In a livelier film with more invested performers, this could be a nicely subversive touch, but the viewer can hardly be blamed... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

35% The Great Wall (2017) The Great Wall is similarly superficial in its political themes... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

26% Suicide Squad (2016) Suicide Squad had a lot of potential to be something different and exciting in the very familiar superhero movie genre. Instead, it's just another incoherent mess... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

73% Ghostbusters (2016) Ghostbusters isn't as tight as the original but it does have flourishes of real subversive comedy. The cast and filmmakers really play with audience expectations but unfortunately they do not fully realize the potential of what they can do. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

78% Keanu (2016) The film is driven with its wonderful characters and simple story that's just really, really funny. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

59% Money Monster (2016) Money Monster never feels tense or thrilling when it's trying its hardest to do so. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

30% Passengers (2016) Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence can't even save this sinking ship. This movie is a boat you should miss. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

91% La La Land (2016) La La Land is a lovely, pleasing, and showstopping movie that should be watched on the biggest screen, loudest sound, and brightest colors as possible. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

84% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Overall, the movie doesn't add up to much. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

73% The Birth of a Nation (2016) The Birth of a Nation is a fine film that deserves your attention. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight is one of the best movies of the year from a new and exciting voice in cinema. With his second film, Berry Jenkins shows a maturity beyond his years... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

61% War Dogs (2016) While I do consider War Dogs one of Todd Phillips' best movies, it could've been a better one if it had something on its mind. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

88% Don't Breathe (2016) Don't Breathe is a movie to experience in the theater with a big audience. This is one of the few times I've seen a movie where you can just feel the entire audience on the edge of their seats... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

11% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Fifty Shades Darker seems like it's supposed to be naughty and kinky, but it just comes off as self-serious without the expertise or know-how to make it worthwhile. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

60% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) ...overall, Murder on the Orient Express should've been more engaging with a sense of urgency... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

93% Dunkirk (2017) It's true that it's themes are a little on the nose - the film's tagline is "Hope is a weapon. Survival is victory" - but Christopher Nolan makes it work with a sense of immediacy not often found in movies. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) This is a misstep in replicating why the original struck a chord with audiences back in 1991. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island is a very serviceable popcorn movie for March, but it could've been more memorable and lasting. I found myself forgetting most of the movie once I stepped into the lobby to leave the theater after it was over. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

96% A Quiet Place (2018) A Quiet Place is a fantastic moviegoing experience, especially if you watch it in a crowded theater. The filmmaking is so on point that you'll find yourself also being completely silent in your seat... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

97% Coco (2017) Thematically, Coco shows the importance of family, while respecting the elderly and remembering the dead. It's not too often family films highlight that... - Battleship Pretension EDIT

90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) While the film's story is a little overlong and complicated for a children's movie, The LEGO Batman Movie gets to the center of Batman's pain of losing his parents and his overall need for family. - Battleship Pretension EDIT
