Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/4 8% Just Getting Started (2017) A rather lazy boondoggle by Shelton, who waited 14 years to direct again and didn't bother to make it worthwhile.‐

2/4 44% The Dancer (La danseuse) (2016) If only Di Giusto more ambitiously broadened her scope, she would have made a fleet-footed tribute for the ages instead of stumbling over such rich possibilities.‐

3/4 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) God has blessed us, every one, with Dan Stevens, who inhabits the character of Dickens beautifully.‐ Washington Post

2/4 44% The Star (2017) This outing is a bit toon-deaf in how it tries having it both ways by mixing the holy with high jinks.‐

2/4 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) There is too little levity and cleverness afoot, especially with a cast whose talent is barely tapped.‐

2.5/4 54% LBJ (2017) Feels like an installment of a 1980s miniseries that's been preserved in amber rather than a complete and fulfilling production.‐ Washington Post

2/4 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) What could have been a salute to the power of imagination to heal damaged souls and broken relationships instead opts to focus on tragic events.‐

2/4 40% So B. It (2017) The filmmakers seem to have forgotten that even the most serious of kid-friendly films can benefit from an injection of fun while attempting to jerk tears.‐ Washington Post

2/4 41% The Mountain Between Us (2017) A high-altitude soap opera, woozy with overly telegraphed peril and determined to make the audience root for a couple who clearly aren't meant for each other.‐

3/4 91% Our Souls at Night (2017) As comforting, low-key and unfussy as your grandmother's tablecloth.‐

2.5/4 82% Loving Vincent (2017) If you are hungry for dazzling eye candy and don't mind a less-than-meaty narrative, this might please your palate.‐

2/4 50% Year by the Sea (2017) Instead of a hearty chowder of emotional highs and lows, first-time director Alexander Janko, who also adapted the script, settles for a diluted, Campbell's-Soup version of getting one's groove back.‐ Washington Post

2.5/4 37% Leap! (2017) "Leap!" is a step up from Weinstein's "Shrek"-on-a-budget "Hoodwinked" films, and it makes the most of its distinctly Old World aesthetic and enticing character design.‐ Washington Post

2.5/4 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) While no one is going to mistake The Hitman's Bodyguard for high art, it will please those in the mood for late-summer fun.‐

1.5/4 9% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) Noisier, busier, crasser and more laugh-free than the first outing.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
3.5/4 95% Step (2017) Part Hoop Dreams, part The Fits and part Bring It On, Step is one of the year's more meaningful and enjoyable docs.‐

2/4 57% Strange Weather (2017) Not even Hunter, who eventually wears out her welcome, can keep Strange Weather from going off the cliff.‐

3/4 74% Landline (2017) A forlornly funny and emotionally bruising dramedy that rarely misses an opportunity to reveal humans as the flawed and occasionally awful beings that they are.‐

1.5/4 16% Blind (2017) One doesn't need perfect vision to quickly surmise that this sudsy affair among Manhattan swells is a glorified Hallmark Channel melodrama.‐

2/5 37% Snatched (2017) [Snatched] is an underdone farcical variation on the "vacation from hell" theme, combined with the mother-and-daughter-coming-to-terms scenario.‐ AARP Movies for Grownups

2/4 21% The Book of Henry (2017) Every book needs an editor.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
3/4 76% Beatriz at Dinner (2017) Hayek turns Beatriz into her own breed of wonder woman, Lithgow's Strutt is definitely a super villain of sorts and their head-to-head battle is clearly worth seeing even if, in real life, it has only begun.‐

2.5/4 76% The Exception (The Kaiser's Last Kiss) (2017) Yes, the narrative is occasionally clunky and there is often more tell than show. But a strong ensemble offers compensation.‐

3/4 86% The Wedding Plan (2017) Burshtein allows some loose and unexplained story threads to dangle needlessly along the way, but she does know how to ratchet up the tension and keep us guessing to the very end.‐

1.5/4 35% Voice from the Stone (2017) Duly drenched in Gothic atmosphere but disastrously drained of any solid suspense.‐

1.5/4 38% How to Be a Latin Lover (2017) How to Be a Latin Lover doesn't know how to be a comedy-at least not a 21st century one that can get away with dopey double entendres while promoting the importance of family ties over money.‐

2.5/4 67% 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 89% 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 62% 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 51% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby often tries too hard and succeeds too little.‐

3/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) This gloriously old-fashioned musical with gee-whiz trappings is a dazzling beauty to behold.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
2/4 73% The Other Half (2017) A somber and derivative relationship drama.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
3/4 63% 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.‐

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 31% 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.‐

3/4 100% 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 93% 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.‐
