46% A Christmas Story Live! (2017) Despite an energetic and dynamic production, Fox's A Christmas Story Live was a disappointing three-hour event.‐ Variety

67% Flint (2017) Flint's writing is at times just atrocious, but these shabby-yet-neat houses are achingly real. And when the women do find each other, the genuine solace and warmth they bring to each other is what keeps the film humming along.‐ Variety

100% Burn, Motherf*cker, Burn! (2017) Documentaries about 1992 are about re-examining the extant archive of material about King. They are also about trying to re-assert the power of videotaped truth, 25 years after realizing its surprising, galling, and definitively maddening limits.‐ Variety

19% Dirty Dancing (2017) Dirty Dancing on ABC is a sappy, passionless, schlocky remake of the original, without even the iota of imagination necessary to expand upon the 1987 film. ‐ Variety

79% Hairspray Live! (2016) Hairspray Live! in the main was genuinely entertaining, even amid some messy moments of a huge production that seemed to be striving for a lot of different emotions all at once.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Unfortunately, Fox's production of Rocky Horror, despite a few solid performances, appears to entirely misapprehend the appeal of the original film.‐ Variety

88% Looking: The Movie (2016) There's a lovely delicacy to Looking: The Movie, as evidenced in the intimacy of its conversations, the shots of San Francisco, and the enthusiasm it has for its lovers finding each other, either just for one night or the rest of their lives.‐ Variety

No Score Yet Center Stage: On Pointe (2016) The best part of "Center Stage: On Pointe" are the 30-odd seconds, about 20 minutes in, when the characters all watch "Center Stage."‐ Variety

16% Special Correspondents (2016) Let me be clear: Nothing about Special Correspondents is relevant or interesting about media, warfare, or human nature. ‐

81% Confirmation (2016) It weighs on the viewer's conscience. ‐

60% The Passion (2016) There's something curiously appealing about the reimagining of the story of Easter in the reborn New Orleans... But then the actors open their mouths to start singing. ‐

73% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) The merit of the Netflix Christmas special, which is debuting at midnight tonight, comes down to just how much cult-of-personality and faux-humility you're inclined to put up with in exchange for a certain alluring aesthetic and mood.‐

81% Nightingale (2015) The film is phenomenally acted, but rarely makes much use of the power of cinema, instead using a device associated more with theater-the one-set location, with a one-man cast.‐

C- No Score Yet Christmas in Conway (2013) Christmas In Conway doesn't get into the emotional landscape of the town as much as you might expect from the title-it's comfortable just alluding to the well-worn territory of neighborhood drama.‐ AV Club
