T-Meter Title | Year
8/10 94% Foxtrot (2018) Foxtrot is a smart film, worth the initial onslaught of grief for the puzzle of uncovering the film's hidden messages. God bless filmmakers who trust their audience to be smart enough to figure things out without explicit expository dialogue. - PopMatters EDIT

59% Please Stand By (2018) But despite the script's imperfections, Please Stand By is harmless, enjoyable film that loves the kind of characters that are often overlooked by Hollywood (those on the spectrums, those at the extremes of fandom). - PopMatters EDIT

5/10 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) That's why, despite it's empowering theme song, diverse cast, and strong vocal lead in Hugh Jackman, it's impossible to separate The Greatest Showman from what we know of P.T. Barnum the man. - PopMatters EDIT

7/10 90% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) To be fair, The Midwife probably isn't a masterpiece but it's satisfyingly thought-provoking. - PopMatters EDIT

5/10 30% Wonder Wheel (2017) It's probably the wrong time to release a movie where a victim of domestic violence is the one whom you're going to demonize. - PopMatters EDIT

9/10 95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) What makes Call Be By Your Name stand out from the films it will be compared to is Guadagnino's play on juxtapositions, which go much deeper than merely an angsty teen with an introspective soul. - PopMatters EDIT

8/10 92% The Shape of Water (2017) The Shape of Water is transportive. - PopMatters EDIT

90% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) [Martin] McDonagh hasn't created a movie about murder. It's about about reclaiming a sense of justice when the world seems senseless and cold. - PopMatters EDIT
