Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 15% Kill Me Three Times (2015) It's nice to see Pegg stretch a little and play the bad guy. Too bad "Kill Me Three Times" doesn't give him better material.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 42% Effie Gray (2015) Fanning is a worthy muse for Thompson. She has developed into an actress who can convey considerable depth and feeling behind those haunting pale blue eyes.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

1/4 65% A Girl Like Her (2015) A weepy and cliche-ridden misfire better suited for a midafternoon time slot on Nickelodeon than the big screen.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 93% The Hunting Ground (2015) As a call to action, "The Hunting Ground" truly goes to bat for rape survivors. As a documentary, the movie as a whole is much lesser than its individual parts.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 64% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) The acting of course is first-rate, and the movie mostly preserves the original warmth and wit of the original.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 71% The Salvation (2015) "The Salvation" is one of those movies that deservedly (and desperately) requires a do-over. Unfortunately, what you see is what you get.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 12% Seventh Son (2015) At least Moore has not played a character like Malkin in recent memory. The same cannot be said for Bridges, whose flawed, alcoholic hero shtick is starting to wear thin.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 36% Project Almanac (2015) I found it hard to care about anybody, when I wasn't too busy trying not to get sick anyway.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

1/4 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) Why Lopez decided to do this inept, cliche-infested film is anyone's guess.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 98% The Babadook (2014) At its heart, "The Babadook" is a story of mother and son, whose relationship ultimately determines whether they survive the demon - or die trying.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 55% Spare Parts (2015) If "Stand and Deliver" struck many as a hard-hitting look at life in the urban ghetto, "Spare Parts" seems like a Disney after-school special by comparison.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 84% Predestination (2015) "Predestination" is too clever for its own good, a film that relies on schtick and gimmicks rather than honest storytelling.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

1/4 88% Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language) (2014) "Goodbye to Language" seems like an appropriate title if it's meant to suggest that logic and sanity have completely disappeared from this world.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

4/4 96% Citizenfour (2014) Despite the film's virtues, we're no closer to understanding Snowden than we were a year ago when this saga began.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

1/4 84% Listen Up Philip (2014) "Listen Up Philip" wants to say something meaningful about human relationships. But like a frustrated writer staring at a blank piece of paper, the words just never appear.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 83% Lilting (2014) Guilt hangs over "Lilting," a suffocating haze so thick that it permeates every unspoken, non-understood word between characters trying to traverse a frustrating gulf of language and grief.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 83% I Am Eleven (2014) What emerges is a group of kids who are generally content but must confront the often confusing time between childhood and adolescence.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 41% Tusk (2014) You don't feel like you wasted your time with "Tusk." But that's the best compliment you can probably give a film like this.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 86% The Skeleton Twins (2014) Hader and Wiig give rich, nuanced performances that reflect the chemistry the two actors honed together from their years on Saturday Night Live.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 71% Take Me to the River (2014) "Take Me to the River" falls woefully short on offering a serious contribution to the history of African American-inspired music.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 13% Innocence (2014) When you consider the source material, the film's flaws become too great to ignore.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

1/4 80% A Letter to Momo (2014) It's difficult to imagine any children's movie retaining the attention of its intended audience for two hours, but this movie feels especially monotonous.‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 81% Land Ho! (2014) You realize fairly early in the film that there will be no emotional payoff. Just an hour and a half of vacation photos in motion.‐ San Francisco Chronicle
