Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 92% Dunkirk (2017) The tension starts from minute one and doesn't let up until the credits roll in "Dunkirk," Christopher Nolan's terse, nerve-jangling WWII drama.‐ New York Post

1/4 54% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Besson styles him as a cocky space rogue, but Valerian is weak sauce. And so is this movie.‐ New York Post

3/4 89% Girls Trip (2017) Now this is how you do a female raunch comedy.‐ New York Post

3/4 94% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Apologies to Charlton Heston loyalists, but "War for the Planet of the Apes" is a good example of how today's movies sometimes beat the hell out of the oldies.‐ New York Post

3/4 58% Footnotes (Sur quel pied danser) (2017) Footnotes isn't perfect, but at least nobody lectured me about jazz.‐ New York Post

2/4 81% The Rehearsal (2016) Feels like a handful of sketches in need of more connection.‐ New York Post

3/4 100% City of Ghosts (2017) Their story should be required viewing for anyone engaging in discussion of the refugee "problem."‐ New York Post

3/4 89% A Ghost Story (2017) If you're patient ... C's wordless vigil will send you away with a shivery melancholy that defies easy explanation.‐ New York Post

4/4 93% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Beginning with a score that riffs on the late-'70s cartoon and closing with a slyly funny after-credits scene, it's as sure-footed as its arachnid namesake.‐ New York Post

3/4 85% Okja (2017) Chilling, subversive ...‐ New York Post

4/4 94% Baby Driver (2017) It's been a week since I saw "Baby Driver," and I'm still pleasantly buzzed.‐ New York Post

2/4 48% Rough Night (2017) It's the first R-rated, woman-directed comedy in years, but here's the rub: The funniest thing about it is the men.‐ New York Post

15% The Mummy (2017) It's hard to tell if it's Cruise or the dragging weight of the movie, but he's almost totally devoid of the star power that makes the "Mission: Impossible" movies compulsively watchable.‐ New York Post

3/4 88% It Comes At Night (2017) A savvy riff on our current cultural anxieties.‐ New York Post

3/4 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Gadot ... exudes superhero charisma, which powers her through a clichéd last chapter.‐ New York Post

1/4 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) If being dull, gruesome and obnoxiously loud weren't enough, Dead Men Tell No Tales makes sure to get in a blast of sexism, too.‐ New York Post

2/4 54% War Machine (2017) Pitt's always at his best when he throws off the too-serious mantle of Romantic Hero, and he seems to be having a ball here. Too bad the screenplay seems to lose interest in him halfway through.‐ New York Post

3/4 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) Clearly, the elder Scott's aim is on the scares - and oh, what satisfying, terrifying, screams-echoing-down-a-ship's-corridor scares they are.‐ New York Post

1.5/4 35% Snatched (2017) There are countless moments during which Hawn and Schumer simply stare at each other, seemingly as baffled as I was by the dullness of it all.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
2/4 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) For every Ritchian moment of cockney camaraderie or narrative trickery, there's a generic scene of mass sword-fighting in the muck, regrettably shot in that gray-brown palette mandated for all gritty fantasy reboots.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted May 10, 2017
3/4 86% The Lovers (2017) Here is a neat, little slow burn of a comedy that upends the cheating-spouse narrative; even its title is cheekily misleading.‐ New York Post

3/4 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) If it's overstuffed in the way of most sequels, well, at least it's stuffed with good cheer.‐ New York Post

2/4 15% The Circle (2017) Our gradual, voluntary loss of privacy is ripe for dramatization, but this movie arrives when people are actually backing up from social media.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 26% Unforgettable (2017) For a bad movie, this one is an awful lot of fun.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
2/4 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) "The Fate of the Furious" begins and ends with adrenaline-spiking scenes - a drag race through Havana, an airplane brawl - that remind you why this gear-head franchise is still purring along. As for the two hours in between . . . not so much.‐ New York Post

87% The Lost City of Z (2017) By all means, go see "The Lost City of Z" - I wouldn't have missed it. But spare a thought for all the less celebrated characters in it ...‐ New York Post

2/4 46% Going in Style (2017) As creaky as its would-be bank robbers' joints.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
2/4 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) With its killer-robot geishas, Godzilla-size hologram ads and nearly nude fighting gear, it's a cyberpunk wonderland - but there isn't much ghost left in this smokin' hot shell.‐ New York Post

3/4 60% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Overall, Caro seems to be making a pointed narrative choice: In the war movie genre, those who quietly tend to the vulnerable don't always get their due.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
2/4 67% Life (2017) For all its CGI showiness, the fact that Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal signed on for this splatterfest is the film's most impressive feat.‐ New York Post

3/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) If you want your old favorite dressed in sumptuous new clothes, that's what you'll get. Those who always desired a little more depth from "Beauty and the Beast" will be happy, too: There's something there that wasn't there before.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 80% Personal Shopper (2017) "Personal Shopper" doesn't have much of a plot, but if you can tune into its languid frequency, it will get under your skin.‐ New York Post

95% The Incredible Jessica James (2017) Casting makes all the difference, and Williams and co-star Chris O'Dowd bounce off each other with a sparky, sarcastic chemistry.‐ New York Post

2/4 17% The Space Between Us (2017) If Nicholas Sparks wrote science fiction, he might come up with something like this teen soap in which boys are, like, literally from another planet.‐ New York Post

46% Wilson (2017) "Wilson" has much of the same everything-sucks humor that gave Clowes' "Ghost World" such sardonic punch 15 years ago, and Harrelson has a ball delivering insults with that goofy grin on his face.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2017
85% Band Aid (2017) A rock-tinged comedy about channeling the banal conflicts of married life into musical energy.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2017
3/4 97% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) It's an effectively feel-bad story, deploying a torrent of wounded, retrograde masculinity to make uttering the word "rape" an even greater transgression than the event itself.‐ New York Post

78% The Hero (2017) Elliott's a master of understatement, and just watching him stare off into the distance, mulling mortality with a weathered cowboy stance, is true cinematic Zen.‐ New York Post

100% Call Me by Your Name (2017) It's not to be missed.‐ New York Post

76% 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

56% 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
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2017
39% 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
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2017
68% 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

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

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

3/4 96% Paterson (2016) Jarmusch salutes a life with a refreshing lack of drama.‐ New York Post
Read More | 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

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
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/4 87% 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
