Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
86% Don't Breathe (2016) "Don't Breathe is still a thrilling experience that effectively puts the audience in the protagonists' place: uncertain, cringing, afraid to even breathe because of the potential consequences. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Aug 25, 2016
99% Hell or High Water (2016) "David Mackenzie's terrifically tense Western Hell or High Water is set in the present, but it keeps emphasizing that in some key ways, life hasn't changed in West Texas since pioneer days. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Aug 12, 2016
26% Suicide Squad (2016) "It doesn't necessarily fall to this film to define what a villain's journey really means. But like its characters, it's free to operate on its own terms, and it'd be a much stronger story if it took full advantage of that freedom. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Aug 2, 2016
84% Equity (2016) "The film packs in so much material that it's bound to have dead ends and weak spots, but its confidence in its provocations is compelling. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jul 29, 2016
56% Jason Bourne (2016) "Bourne is numbing in its relentless, repetitive pursuit sequences, some of which add absolutely nothing to the story except wrecked cars and extra minutes. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jul 28, 2016
83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Until a richer villain and more thought-out story come along, we at least have this chapter, which offers fans of the original Trek world some of the things they've most wanted: space to enjoy all their old heroes, and reasons to respect them again. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jul 22, 2016
91% Phantom Boy (2016) "It's still something distinctive and different in a sea of shiny mirrors, all reflecting the same slick CGI style back at each other. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jul 20, 2016
70% Café Society (2016) "Like so many Allen films, it feels like it was made primarily for his therapist, and letting the rest of the world in to see it and make their own diagnoses is an afterthought. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jul 20, 2016
73% Ghostbusters (2016) "Ghostbusters is a lively, hilarious crowd-pleaser, which is all that's really required of a big summer action comedy. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jul 13, 2016
99% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) "Like What We Do In The Shadows, Wilderpeople is laugh-out-loud funny and full of left-turn surprises. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jun 29, 2016
51% The Neon Demon (2016) "There's still a petty overeagerness to Neon Demon, a [Russ] Meyer-style tackiness that embraces empty metaphor at the expense of character development, or even a coherent story. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jun 24, 2016
94% Finding Dory (2016) "Finding Dory isn't a vital addition to the Pixar canon... But it's nice to see Stanton back in his element, especially when he's here to deliver such a helpful, important message in the process. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jun 16, 2016
94% King Jack (2016) "Thompson's leads are so natural in their roles, and his filmmaking is so immediate and intimate, that King Jack is instantly absorbing. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jun 10, 2016
28% Warcraft (2016) "Warcraft won't go down in history as a ringing success, but people who see it aren't likely to forget it easily, either. It's much more of a commercial endeavor than Jones' other films, but it doesn't abandon art by the wayside. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jun 9, 2016
97% The Fits (2016) "What Holmer does offer is a story about suggestion and nuance, about movement and emotion. It's a narrative film, but it feels like a dance piece itself, and it's strongest in its meaningful silences. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jun 3, 2016
80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Hidden somewhere in the murky shadows of The Conjuring 2 is an utterly terrifying 90-minute horror movie that doesn't waste time on repetition, doubts, sidebar stories, or long conversations. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jun 2, 2016
96% Weiner (2016) "Kriegman and Steinberg were granted impressive access to Weiner and his embattled wife Huma Abedin throughout the project, and the authenticity and intimacy of their footage is unbeatable. " ‐ The Verge
Posted May 25, 2016
91% The Nice Guys (2016) "While the characters are distinctive and charming, and the dialogue is often pretty funny, The Nice Guys is a large step down on the ambition scale from Kiss Kiss. " ‐ The Verge
Posted May 19, 2016
90% The Lobster (2016) "Lanthimos and Filippou keep the audience guessing about their ultimate ends right up to the final shot, and beyond. " ‐ The Verge
Posted May 19, 2016
57% Money Monster (2016) " It's easy to see it as a drama that fails to fully address America's shortcomings. It's actually something better: an insightful comedy about human perspective. " ‐ The Verge
Posted May 12, 2016
48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "You can't play a symphony with a single note. With Apocalypse, Singer never gets around to varying his single, gloomy, dreary tune. " ‐ The Verge
Posted May 12, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "Civil War lives in those moments when the smashing starts. The central fight between the two halves of the Avengers group is a tremendous sequence, full of imaginative teamwork and impressive effects. " ‐ The Verge
Posted May 3, 2016
13% Special Correspondents (2016) "Special Correspondents keeps coming up with big ideas, then taking them to undersized ends. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 29, 2016
63% High-Rise (2016) "Hiddleston's combination of placid calm and seething, hidden rage gives it all an anchor. He isn't exactly accessible, or sympathetic. But he gives the film a memorable central character. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 28, 2016
70% A Hologram for the King (2016) "It's inconsistent in its intentions, but at least some of those intentions are good ones. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 26, 2016
76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "Elvis & Nixon is at its best when it sticks to what-if whimsy and the enjoyable fantasy of worlds colliding, with all the outlandish possibilities that crossover stories suggest. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 22, 2016
80% Confirmation (2016) "In spite of all the behind-the-scenes tension, the film often lacks a vital spark. Famuyiwa directs it like a middlebrow prestige picture, all tasteful compositions and somber music. It's reserved and dignified, but not creatively staged. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 15, 2016
97% Sing Street (2016) "Sing Street is the kind of film that enthusiastically bellows its feelings to the sky, with full band accompaniment and a triumphant guitar crescendo to drive it all home. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 15, 2016
95% The Jungle Book (2016) "It's hard to see any of the Disney remakes as standalone experiences, not living in the shadow of classics. This atmospheric, evocative, and above all, powerful Jungle Book at least makes an effort to come out of those shadows. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 14, 2016
22% The Boss (2016) "A slick shrug of a movie that feels like closer to an Adam Sandler comedy than to McCarthy's past projects. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Apr 7, 2016
98% April and the Extraordinary World (Avril et le monde truqué) (2016) "It's a rousing, thrilling adventure, beautifully animated in rich, deep hues with a look that meets neatly between the flow of hand-drawn cels and the smoothness of digital animation. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Mar 29, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "That fight comes late in the game, and it's so grim, humorless, and vicious, it stops being thrilling early on. It isn't in the service of any of the themes the film has struggled to express, it's just a meat-headed, brutal throwdown. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Mar 23, 2016
97% Krisha (2016) "Shults is telling a personal story here, but he's also wisely drawing on a familiar set of tropes, ones that implicate the audience in all sorts of interesting ways. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Mar 16, 2016
84% Midnight Special (2016) "It's an effective thrill ride, but it leaves a haunting shadow of the bigger, better movie it might have been. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Mar 9, 2016
68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a tragic lark, and an enjoyable enough experience. But it winds up feeling like about half a story, and not always the more meaningful or satisfying half. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Mar 4, 2016
19% Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) "Sword Of Destiny suffers endlessly by comparison to Ang Lee's groundbreaking 2000 film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, for the comparative smallness of its vision, its visuals, and its budget. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Mar 2, 2016
61% Race (2016) "Relying on the thrill of the running scenes, on what Owens accomplishes, lets Race come by its uplift through action, instead of big speeches. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Feb 18, 2016
42% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "The book at least looked for resonances between zombie tropes and the comedy of manners. Steers, by contrast, never really finds a meaningful reason for this version to exist. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Feb 12, 2016
86% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "As Coen movies go, this is one of the most upbeat and optimistic, one of the few to suggest that good people can have happy endings. Classic Hollywood wouldn't have it any other way. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Feb 12, 2016
23% Zoolander 2 (2016) "Where the first film was content with straight-faced silliness, Zoolander 2 tries to blow the same silliness out to epic, world-spanning proportions, and it just winds up feeling overstretched. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Feb 11, 2016
84% Deadpool (2016) "Deadpool's relentless pace is refreshing, and so is the sense that viewers will be able to keep up. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Feb 11, 2016
63% The Finest Hours (2016) "A much stronger film than the familiar disaster-movie treatment of its trailers suggests. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jan 28, 2016
16% The 5th Wave (2016) "A horrifying scenario that's played without the horror, almost offhandedly. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jan 22, 2016
96% Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo) (2015) "This strange, lovely creation really is one of the year's absolute best animated films. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jan 22, 2016
50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "13 Hours is sometimes crass, sometimes silly, and often broad. But it's still the most direct, and even honest, Benghazi movie we're likely to get. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jan 14, 2016
96% Son of Saul (2015) "If most Holocaust films are about survival, Son of Saul is a stunning portrait of a specific kind of survival: the kind where, in extremis, people radically reduce what success looks like. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jan 7, 2016
75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "As much as it wallows in the worst mankind has to offer (and has little of importance to say about those impulses), it still showcases Tarantino's skills with memorable characters and high-impact dialogue. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jan 7, 2016
54% The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "When the characters stop talking and start acting, Shannara becomes a simple thrill. But it's a long and winding quest to get there. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Jan 5, 2016
60% Sisters (2015) "Not every joke works, on paper or on screen. But Fey and Poehler at least look like they're having fun, and they make it easy to get pulled along for the ride, no matter how awkward it gets. " ‐ The Verge
Posted Dec 17, 2015
88% The Big Short (2015) "The actors take second place to Hank Corwin's fast-paced editing, easily the film's single most valuable asset. It's about as obtrusive as film editing gets, but it gives the film a reckless, nervy energy to go with the characters' discomfiture. " ‐ The Verge
