Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% Call Me by Your Name (2017) It's not to be missed. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 23, 2017
86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Olsen nails it as Taylor, who speaks almost exclusively in superlatives: "Ohmygod, you're my favorite person I've ever met!" ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 23, 2017
60% L.A. Times (2017) Morgan writes dialogue at a pace to rival "Gilmore Girls," with a haughty vocabulary that evokes the best of Whit Stillman and laugh-out-loud zingers so frequent I couldn't scribble them down fast enough. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 23, 2017
31% The Yellow Birds (2017) "The Yellow Birds" mostly feels like a slightly different version of "American Sniper," not least because of its disregard for any lives lost that don't belong to Americans. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 23, 2017
100% Novitiate (2017) It's thought-provoking, occasionally melodramatic fare that should definitely garner some award nominations for Leo, who could put the fear of God into anybody. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 21, 2017
67% Landline (2017) A smart and tender movie that was swept a bit under the rug by its misguided designation as "the abortion comedy." ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 21, 2017
2.5/4 75% Split (2017) Unfortunately, you could probably improve "Split" by editing out everything around McAvoy and making it an experimental one-man show. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jan 18, 2017
4/4 89% 20th Century Women (2017) Despite being set in the late 1970s, "20th Century Women" feels like the perfect movie for this moment. ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 27, 2016
3/4 96% Paterson (2016) Jarmusch salutes a life with a refreshing lack of drama. ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 27, 2016
2.5/4 34% Live By Night (2017) It's difficult to avoid sizing up "Live by Night" as "The Town" with a classier wardrobe but less heart. ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 22, 2016
1.5/4 31% Passengers (2016) There are so many points along the way when the stranded-in-space drama "Passengers," which is not a good movie, could have made different choices and become one. ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/4 86% A Monster Calls (2017) The film belongs alongside "Pan's Labyrinth" in the realm of darkly creative kid-centric films that are, at their core, not really kids' fare at all. ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/4 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) "Rogue One" is definitive proof: "Star Wars" is back, baby. ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 13, 2016
3.5/4 95% Moana (2016) It's so transporting it will have your kids begging you to book the next flight to the islands. ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 22, 2016
2/4 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) There's never been a better time to escape into J.K. Rowling's world of magic. Unfortunately, the cast of characters you'll find here is a pale imitation of her Hogwarts heroes. ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 16, 2016
3.5/4 94% Arrival (2016) "Arrival" makes a moving case that we've only scratched the surface of what we think is possible - and what we define as intelligence. ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 10, 2016
3/4 90% Doctor Strange (2016) With a mischievous, metaphysical flourish, "Doctor Strange" administers some much-needed CPR to the flagging superhero genre. ‐ New York Post
Posted Nov 3, 2016
1.5/4 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) "Joneses" never really upends its initial premise, which is that impossibly good-looking people are cooler than the rest of us. That's not comedy, that's Us Weekly. ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 20, 2016
3.5/4 98% Moonlight (2016) There is so much pain in "Moonlight" that it's a little hard to breathe at certain moments. But there are others, of connection and redemption, that positively glow. ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 20, 2016
2/4 51% The Accountant (2016) If you're going to make the first mainstream movie about autism since "Rain Man," maybe don't feature an anti-hero who's highly adept at shooting people in the head. ‐ New York Post
Posted Oct 13, 2016
2/4 32% Masterminds (2016) I cracked up here and there watching this broad heist comedy, but it wasn't laughter I felt great about. ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/4 79% American Honey (2016) At 162 minutes, "American Honey" may test some viewers' patience, but for this one, it paid off with an unflinching portrait of middle America, a love letter to the open road and a dynamic newcomer in Sasha Lane. ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 29, 2016
2.5/4 92% Queen of Katwe (2016) Sometimes, it's enough to walk out of a film with your heart warmed - even if your brain's still craving a little something more. ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 22, 2016
2.5/4 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Enough laughs here to merit this gaffe-filled outing with Ms. Jones. ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 15, 2016
3/4 82% Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016) A wild trip with a highly unreliable narrator. ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 8, 2016
1/4 15% The Wild Life (2016) Belgians may have bragging rights on waffles, but judging from "The Wild Life," their animated fare needs help. ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 8, 2016
2.5/4 64% Antibirth (2016) Like its wastoid heroine, "Antibirth" is a mess - but an interesting one. ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 2, 2016
2/4 71% White Girl (2016) The film's endless scenes of debauchery and exploitation don't really yield much of a take-away ... ‐ New York Post
Posted Sep 1, 2016
1/4 12% The Sea of Trees (2016) [A] soggy mess of a movie ... ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 25, 2016
2/4 80% The Intervention (2016) Wanders from scene to scene until arriving at some pretty implausible conflict resolution. ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 25, 2016
3/4 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Despite a traditional-seeming quest for a suit of armor and a sword, the film's intrinsic message is all about the transformative powers of music and love. It's a movie the whole family can rock out to. ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 18, 2016
2.5/4 83% Sausage Party (2016) Directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon are working with a first-rate cast, running wild with stereotypes and daring you to be offended. ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 11, 2016
3/4 97% Little Men (2016) It's a no-win situation in which no one is the bad guy - a gentle, intelligent oasis in this summer of heated name-calling. ‐ New York Post
Posted Aug 4, 2016
3/4 77% Into The Forest (2016) Wood and Page generate a believable, prickly sibling closeness in Rozema's unhurried but harrowing micro-portrait of how easily civilization could crumble. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 28, 2016
2.5/4 81% Equity (2016) Ultimately, I found the story surrounding "Equity" - that it is a movie about women on Wall Street, financed largely by actual women on Wall Street - more interesting than the movie itself, but it does contain its share of memorable moments. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 28, 2016
2/4 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Feels both deeply rote and way overpacked with characters. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 21, 2016
3/4 60% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) On the whole, it's a pitch-perfect love letter to "Ab Fab" devotees. As for newcomers? My advice: See it after a couple of Stolis, darling, and you'll be just fine. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 21, 2016
3/4 29% Outlaws and Angels (2016) "Outlaws and Angels" isn't perfect - Murray mumbles into his beard way too much - but Eastwood sure is at ease with a cowboy hat and revolver. Clearly, she's studied with the best. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 73% Ghostbusters (2016) Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones make a formidable comic team in their own right - though McKinnon steals the show as oddball physics geek Holtzmann (the Egon, if you will). ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 28% Fathers And Daughters (2016) "Fathers and Daughters" juggles too many plotlines ... ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/4 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) This simple premise, spun into a caper by the canny team behind "Despicable Me" and its hyperactive sequel, "Minions," makes for a pretty amusing ride. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jul 7, 2016
1/4 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) A plodding, incoherent mess starring Skarsgard and his abs, which look more real than any of his CGI jungle companions. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 30, 2016
1.5/4 57% The Neon Demon (2016) Like Refn's one-dimensional women, this movie thinks it's profound when it's really just drop-dead gorgeous. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 23, 2016
2.5/4 69% Swiss Army Man (2016) "Swiss Army Man" nearly makes up with juvenile glee what it lacks in plot and coherence. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 23, 2016
3/4 95% Tickled (2016) "Tickled" certainly doesn't describe how I felt at the end of this fascinating documentary; more like thoroughly creeped out. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 17, 2016
2.5/4 69% Central Intelligence (2016) We're here for the Johnson and Hart show, and they deliver. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 16, 2016
1/4 8% No Stranger Than Love (2016) [An] exhaustingly quirky indie romance ... ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 16, 2016
2/4 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) "Horsemen reappear in London; world holds its breath," blares a newspaper headline in this sequel, rather overestimating the world's fascination with magicians - as well as its recall of the first movie ... ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 9, 2016
2.5/4 17% Careful What You Wish For (2016) This erotic noir is about as substantial as one of its female lead's string bikinis, but it's an enjoyable trifle nonetheless. ‐ New York Post
Posted Jun 9, 2016
1.5/4 45% Approaching the Unknown (2016) Claustrophobic space films certainly don't have to be funny, but writer/director Mark Elijah Rosenberg fails to convey any real psychological chills either with this portrait of an obsessive adventurer banging away at his imperfect machine. ‐ New York Post
