Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 71% Little Boxes (2017) What keeps their movie watchable is that Lynskey, Ellis and Jackson are completely believable as a loving family unit going through a rough patch concerning their sense of identity and place.‐

3/4 87% Their Finest (2017) Attempts to wed a '30s-style workplace screwball comedy with a misty-eyed World War II drama and, save for a few patchy spots, mostly succeeds.‐

3/4 56% Cezanne and I (Cézanne et Moi) (2017) Cézanne et Moi is at its most intoxicating whenever it looks and acts like a landscape painted by its title 19th-century French artist.‐

2/4 53% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby often tries too hard and succeeds too little.‐

2.5/4 40% Wilson (2017) The plot opts for cop-out sentimentality and begins to melt into goo.‐

3/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) This gloriously old-fashioned musical with gee-whiz trappings is a dazzling beauty to behold.‐

2/4 77% The Other Half (2017) A somber and derivative relationship drama.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
3/4 66% Before I Fall (2017) A story aimed primarily at teen and tween girls, one that doesn't pander or preach and avoids over-villainizing its characters, even if a cliché or two sneaks in.‐

3/4 75% Lovesong (2017) Kim has wisely provided her two stars with enough breathing room to bring her movie to life.‐

2.5/4 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) It soon becomes apparent that not everything is quite as awesome this time around.‐

2.5/4 56% Wheeler (2017) Dang if [Dorff] doesn't make this simple yet sincere saga hit more than a few high notes.‐

2.5/4 76% The Daughter (2017) The off-kilter handheld camerawork frequently chases after the figures as they move about. But there is no disguising that there's much more talk than action in The Daughter.‐

2/4 32% Monster Trucks (2017) It never made me want to sink ever deeper in my seat with despair at every plot turn as some flat-out lemons do.‐

3/4 No Score Yet Everybody Knows... Elizabeth Murray (2017) Despite the compact running time, it is easy to feel that you have come to know-and likely admire-Elizabeth Murray.‐

2.5/4 58% Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (2016) Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life is better than middling as it sidesteps the trap of simply pandering to its youthful demo with cheap laughs and silly mugging.‐

4/4 92% Toni Erdmann (2016) Abundantly talented writer/director Maren Ade fully embraces the inherent awkwardness of a testy emotional bond and tackles it to the ground.‐

3/4 73% Sing (2016) Its makers know all too well how to fully exploit the power of a catchy pop song.‐

1.5/4 12% Collateral Beauty (2016) I don't think I've witnessed a film this year that managed to so completely and utterly collapse into crass garbage in its last few minutes while abusing what little goodwill it has.‐

2/4 41% Office Christmas Party (2016) Yet another reminder that allowing your cast to madly improvise instead of actually providing a coherent script with a scintilla of logic often leads to a decline in sustained laughter.‐

3.5/4 86% Lion (2016) Let's just say if you are human, there is no way that Lion won't move you.‐

3/4 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) It is best to simply sit back at some point and enjoy the ride.‐

2.5/4 74% Trolls (2016) A derivative madcap money machine that is all about ensuring that DreamWorks, which has had few hits other than sequels in recent years, has a fresh pipeline of steady revenue.‐

3/4 92% The Eagle Huntress (2016) A sky-high documentary salute to girl power.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
1.5/4 No Score Yet Priceless (2016) What should be a lean and taut thriller based on true stories is about as exciting as watching wet socks bounce around in the dryer.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
2/4 53% Mascots (2016) As hard as it is to admit, Guest's once-incisive satirical bite has grown dull in its familiarity. He doesn't seem to be having as much fun here and neither are we.‐

2.5/4 83% Denial (2016) Much like Lipstadt, viewers aren't privy to the inner workings of the defense except in dribs and drabs.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
2.5/4 54% The Dressmaker (2016) Positively explodes with a surfeit of pent-up creative energy that unfortunately doesn't know when to stop.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2016
3/4 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) This update on Bridget's always-complicated affairs of the heart is more often than not a bundle of joy to watch and a far cry from being a pail of poopy nappies.‐

3/4 85% Sully (2016) A porterhouse of a movie that touches your heart. ‐

2/4 40% Morgan (2016) Before the midway point, it is pretty obvious what the eventual outcome and supposed big reveal will be. ‐

2/4 80% The Intervention (2016) If DuVall's purpose was to provide a snapshot of her generation, she should have sharpened her focus. ‐

2.5/4 65% A Tale of Love and Darkness (2016) Portman has an artistic vision worth sharing and developing. ‐

3.5/4 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Florence Foster Jenkins will strike a chord with those looking for relief in the form of originality, top-tier acting and amazingly godawful singing. ‐

0/4 11% Nine Lives (2016) Let's just say I have been to wakes that have elicited more laughs.‐

2.5/4 81% Equity (2016) Good intentions do count even if the outcome is not perfect. Here is hoping that future productions from Broad Street Pictures prove more satisfying and offer bigger payoffs. ‐

2/4 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) It's almost as if the writers were simply using ideas left over from other Ice Age scripts that are about as fresh as the wind beneath Sid's fleas. ‐

2/4 73% Ghostbusters (2016) I would have preferred that they simply had shut their naysayers down by producing a better movie. ‐

2.5/4 60% Roseanne for President! (2016) Ragtag though fairly amusing ...‐

3/4 93% Right Now, Wrong Then (2016) Despite the fact that not much of actual consequence happens during "Right Now, Wrong Then," Hong does much more right here than he does wrong.‐

3/4 94% Finding Dory (2016) The result might be less fulfilling this time, but "Dory" is ultimately worth the voyage.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2016
2.5/4 84% The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble (2016) Much like "20 Feet from Stardom," the doc becomes a grabber whenever it focuses on the immensely skilled and unique individuals who form this melodic melting pot.‐

2.5/4 58% Me Before You (2016) Luckily, many of the plot's maudlin pitfalls are greatly mitigated by the film's utterly infectious leading lady.‐

2/4 22% Ma ma (2016) Cruz ... single-handedly breathes a sense of genuineness into this maudlin exercise even if she can't cure all of its flaws.‐

1.5/4 43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) Instead of elevating the Angry Birds concept to surreal heights of insane genius, the filmmakers settle for a tale bogged down by familiar themes plucked from much better films.‐

2.5/4 76% Last Days In The Desert (2016) "Last Days in the Desert" soon expands into a meditation on such themes as fathers and sons, family responsibilities, trust, destiny and death ...‐

2.5/4 24% Being Charlie (2016) Like most family affairs, the film isn't perfect but it is memorable, and provides a passable high when it is over-one that you haven't felt from a Rob Reiner production in ages.‐
Read More | Posted May 6, 2016
3/4 70% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) What Messina lacks in substance in his storytelling, he mostly makes up with raw feelings. We come to care through our own powers of observation, and that might be enough.‐

2/4 61% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) An account of a remarkable person should strive to be as equally remarkable as its subject, not the timid and tidy boilerplate special of a biopic that "The Man Who Knew Infinity" too often resembles.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2016
3/4 89% The Invitation (2016) An intimate, highly effective chiller in a confined space with an armrest-grabber of a payoff.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2016
2/4 82% Standing Tall (La Tête Haute) (2016) Earnest can mean serious and sincere. But, in this case, it too often means repetitive and plodding.‐
