T-Meter Title | Year
96% See You Yesterday (2019) A wholly imaginative, fully entertaining, and yet unflinching vision of a pair of high school geniuses, who invent time travel...and learn science is easy, consequences are hard. - idobi.com EDIT

51% The Sun Is Also a Star (2019) From the scenes readers will be waiting for, to the divergences that will surprise everyone in the theater--Shahidi and Melton have an easy chemistry, they'll make you believe in love-in-the-first-24 [we just wish there were more emotional thrills]. - idobi.com EDIT

89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) Parabellum is the movie equivalent of a 3D experience at the amusement park...you'll gleefully line up when it ends--just so this movie can fry your brain one more time. Everything about it hurtles Parabellum to the peak of the assassin movie sub-genre. - idobi.com EDIT

81% Long Shot (2019) Director Jonathan Levine wanted to make an 80s style romcom that balances love & laughs--by adding nods from slapstick and upping the stakes--he succeeds. - idobi.com EDIT

A- 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Plainly stated: Avengers: Endgame is the payoff for all the time, and inspiration, and joy you've invested in the MCU all these years-and it pays well - idobi.com EDIT

B- 80% Fast Color (2019) Fast Color is quiet, and indie, and dynamic. Even if it doesn't quite deliver a fantastic final showdown, these three women have their own gravity - you'll be pulled in. - idobi.com EDIT

45% Little (2019) The true triumph of 'Little' is Marsai Martin, from creating and pitching this film, to executive producing it, to being the best thing about it. Martin is incredible. - Geek Girl Riot EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2019
C 64% Unicorn Store (2019) a whimsical comedy that jumps between the awkward humor of The Office and the outrageousness of Office Space with rainbow sprinkles and a touch of Wonka magic thrown in. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2019
B+ 94% Us (2019) This is a blood soaked fable with white rabbits you can't help but follow down -- and it's a thrilling way to fall. Peele excels at the shocks and reversals Hitchcock and Serling would cheer for. Yet he does it his way, and his way is so very good. - idobi.com EDIT

C- 33% Wonder Park (2019) It owes a lot to Inside Out...but I'm reminded of the aphorism: Good artists copy, great artists steal. Maybe Wonder Park should've stolen more and been less of a wide-eyed imitation. It's sweet but it's not satisfying. - idobi.com EDIT

6/10 78% Captain Marvel (2019) It's cool...I mean, it's enjoyable...I mean, it's pleasant, but I feel like the emotional impact you take away from the movie relies on the emotional connection you bring into the theater with you - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2019
C- 45% What Men Want (2019) This cast is capable of serving up a delicious rom-com that simultaneously takes down misogyny without smudging its lipstick, yet even with a cast and a soundtrack this good, What Men Want never finds its rhythm. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
D 22% Miss Bala (2019) It's a good time but it's not a good movie. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2019
B 83% Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2019) Dragon Ball Super: Broly makes you feel every emotion a full season of the series would. And it's a fightgasm of full on Dragon Ball action. And there's fusion... - idobi.com EDIT

C 38% Glass (2019) I liked it but...Glass needed an editor. Someone to dial it back, give it focus, and help to find the truelife moments that make good comics and good comic book movies work. - idobi.com EDIT

C 65% Aquaman (2018) I like Aquaman. I'm not saying it's a great movie or that it's the savior of the DC cinematic universe, but it is a lot of fun. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2019
C- 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) Something's off about the storytelling in The Darkest Minds. Primarily, the world building is illogical and lacks cohesion. It's a fast food movie -- kind of bad but kind of good, and on a late night with your friends it'll be kind of tasty. - idobi.com EDIT

C+ 78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Atomic Blonde is like an amusement park ride, the adrenaline is high and you'll have a good time but ultimately it's over and you're off to find a bigger thrill. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2019
B 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) We have such feels when we watch Infinity War because Marvel has earned our emotions. They built these characters, they developed our connection to them and we've seen them struggle with heroics to always come out on the right side. - idobi.com EDIT

D 25% Bright (2017) ...there's a bunch of shooting and stabbing, explosions, and general bloodiness. It's all very dark (literally) and -- I imagine for the non-geeky -- Bright is as hard to follow as it is to see. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2019
B+ 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) The second part to the Incredibles saga has just as much emotion as the first but the action and performances have powered up. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2019
C+ 76% Smallfoot (2018) This is a fun, although imperfect, kids movie that actually has something to say about the way we treat those we see as "other". That alone makes it worth the ticket, but there's also a hip-hop opus by Common that's too good to miss. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2019
C+ 69% Ocean's 8 (2018) It's a fun ride and these women are super dope but the movie doesn't quite get you high. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2019
C- 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) It's kinda like George A. Romero wrote an action-thriller in John Wick's world. Only not that good. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2019
C- 51% Destination Wedding (2018) ...a dumpster dive into two garbage people who turn out to be shabby chic. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2019
B 86% Okja (2017) Okja is a "grimm" fairytale with all the sense-of-wonder and dark consequences of those bloodsoaked originals - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2019
A- 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) You'll hear people say Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is good and you'll be happy to hear it. Good doesn't quite cover it though. This movie is so well done [it left me stunned]. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2019
C 62% The Oath (2018) The Oath is a horror movie disguised as political satire and you should watch it -- if only to get the conversation across the table started. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2019
C- 31% Kin (2018) It's a little bit Terminator, a little bit coming of age, so very promising, and unfortunately a lot of disappointment. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2019
B 93% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) A Fantastic Woman is a reaffirmation of unapologetic womanhood. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2019
B- 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Bohemian Rhapsody is one of those films that will either make you ecstatic or thoroughly annoyed. For me it's a joy. Yet I do get the annoyance. - idobi.com EDIT

D 15% Robin Hood (2018) This isn't a horrible movie -- it's actually engaging for most of two hours -- but it's just so silly. Even in the harshest moments you feel like there's a punchline coming. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2019
B 91% Widows (2018) This is an intense film with a plot like a snake; who survives and who gets bitten depends on where the next twist turns. - idobi.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2019
B+ 95% If Beale Street Could Talk (2019) Barry Jenkins has created an affecting dreamscape; ephemeral yet all too real. If Beale Street Could Talk throws you off balance while sucking you in. - idobi.com EDIT
