Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 50% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Kingsman: The Golden Circle is at its best when it embraces the nutso vision of its predecessor. Such moments are, unfortunately, a bit overwhelmed by the soggy pacing‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 68% mother! (2017) The skill that went into crafting mother! is undeniable ... but so is its unpleasantness, its aggressively nihilistic and misanthropic ugliness.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 85% The Trip to Spain (2017) A rather perfect mélange of casual wealth porn, a glimpse into competitive friendships, and the clash between masculine imperatives.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 93% Logan Lucky (2017) A star-studded heist flick that calls to mind some of the eclectic director's most popular work even if it falters a bit at the end.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 83% Detroit (2017) Narrative looseness aside, there is a great power to Detroit. Bigelow and Boal have put together a troubling portrait of a society tearing itself apart.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 16% The Dark Tower (2017) If you're going to adapt Stephen King's eight-book opus ... why would you turn its lead character, Roland Deschain, aka the Gunslinger (Idris Elba), into a supporting character?‐ Washington Free Beacon

4/4 93% Dunkirk (2017) Exhilaratingly claustrophobic, Christopher Nolan's latest is the best film of the year thus far.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 50% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Luc Besson shows and then tells - and tells, and tells, and tells.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Intermittently funny and dour, alternately dull and exciting, and grasping for depth when it isn't content to settle for sentiment.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 77% The Little Hours (2017) The Little Hours has one of the worst laughs-per-minute-per-genius-comic-actor ratios I've ever experienced in my filmgoing life.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming is a fine, fun continuation of the MCU content factory.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 85% Okja (2017) Hijinks and high-speed chases give way to horror and Holocaust imagery as we see the conditions in which Okja's factory-farmed brethren live.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 93% Baby Driver (2017) Well worth seeing on the biggest screen with the best sound system possible.‐ Washington Free Beacon

4/4 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Transformers: The Last Knight is ... kind of entertaining? In the way I assume riding a roller coaster while on meth is probably kind of entertaining?‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 16% The Mummy (2017) You should skip it because it's worse than incompetent: It's soulless.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
2.5/4 89% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes at Night is the feel-bad movie of the year. I can't help but feel as if audiences are going to hate it. And I can't blame them if they do.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 92% Wonder Woman (2017) The most fun I've had at the theater so far this year.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 18% Baywatch (2017) The best joke in the movie is one that comes at the expense of fans.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) It's like a piratical Fast and Furious. ... Equally stupid, too.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 70% Alien: Covenant (2017) Alien: Covenant is the prequel to Alien I imagine people thought they were getting when they heard about Prometheus.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
1/4 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Annoyingly edited, shoddily acted, and stuffed with action scenes that have stakes so low as to be invisible, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is easily skipped.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Second verse, same as the first. ... But when the first verse was as good as Guardians of the Galaxy, it's hard to complain too much.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1/4 17% The Circle (2017) A shockingly bad piece of work.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
2.5/4 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) An epic, wandering, sometimes ponderous adventure through an unknown landscape riddled with unwelcome dangers and unexpected treasures.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 66% Free Fire (2017) Intermittently amusing but horribly edited sub-Tarantino schlock is, at least, short‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
2.5/4 80% Colossal (2017) Colossal has been sold as a quirky, indie, romantic-Kaiju comedy (romkaicom?) but is instead a dark meditation on the dangers of alcohol abuse and violence against women.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The only time I truly felt engaged by The Fate of the Furious was when Jason Statham was onscreen, especially when he and Dwayne Johnson squared off.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Scarlett Johansson is perfectly cast in this visually sumptuous sci-fi thriller.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 79% T2 Trainspotting (2017) T2 ... isn't a rehash. It's an evolution, one that uses the power of the past to inform the peculiarities of the present.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Completely unnecessary live-action retread of a beloved Disney classic.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 100% 2017 Oscar Nominated Shorts: Animation (2017) My theory for the category is that the short that brings you closest to tears-or, perhaps, just the one that inspires any emotional response at all-is the one that will win.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island has lots of monsters and lots of explosions and lots of scenery chewing, but it has very little in the way of heart or humanity‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 93% Logan (2017) A fitting finale for Jackman that sometimes falters in its urge to please.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) A worthy sequel to the best American action film of the 2010s.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
1.5/4 34% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) It's odd, I guess, to worry about the structural integrity of something as flimsily and haphazardly slapped together as the Resident Evil mythos.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 83% The Founder (2017) Keaton's Kroc is compulsively watchable without being charming...[an] over-caffeinated underachiever for whom one feels comfortable having equal measures pity and contempt‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 43% Gold (2017) As fun as McConaughey is to watch, I'm not quite sure he's enough to save Gold.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 80% Patriots Day (2017) At its best, Patriots Day is extremely effective filmmaking. ... It is too bad ... that the rest of the film is less taut. ‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 84% Silence (2017) I can't remember the last time I saw a film about faith that treated the subject with such seriousness and reflection and artistry.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 97% Krisha (2016) Among the most engrossing 80-or-so minutes you'll see all year.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 40% Office Christmas Party (2016) I laughed out loud a couple of times. It's not as funny as it needs to be to make it a must-watch in theaters, but it's not so terrible that you should avoid it at all costs.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 98% Moonlight (2016) There is no justice in the world if Mahershala Ali does not get a best supporting actor nod for Moonlight.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 95% Manchester by the Sea (2016) Lonergan's script and direction are pleasingly subtle, studded with nice little moments that help us understand the characters and help them understand each other.‐ Washington Free Beacon
