Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
34% Monster Trucks (2017) This movie plays like Herbie the Love Bug if the anthropomorphic car also had slimy tentacles, and there's a part of me that will always be ten years old who thinks that's pretty neat. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 10, 2017
31% Passengers (2016) It tries to pass itself off as romantic but it doesn't seem to realize that it's actually careened headlong into stalker territory. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 15, 2016
85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) I'm recommending it, if only as a three-star action movie. But I think it's important to consider how the original Star Wars movies transcended their pulpy influences and how Rogue One gets mired in them. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 13, 2016
90% Doctor Strange (2016) At its best it's a consciousness-expanding head trip of fantastic proportions, and at its worst it's merely an entertaining superhero movie. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 24, 2016
82% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) So suspenseful and so skillful for so very long that even the disappointing finale can't ruin it. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 20, 2016
85% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) The Autopsy of Jane Doe is a creepy motion picture, festering with atmosphere and frequently very frightening.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 26, 2016
64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Tim Burton's latest may look and sound just like another YA fantasy film but it's as potent an allegory for our contemporary (and age-old) refugee crisis as one could have reasonably hoped for ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 25, 2016
98% Moonlight (2016) That rare film that seems to wholly capture a human experience, in all of its tragedy and wonder. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 15, 2016
76% Colossal (2017) The idea of Colossal is a heck of a lot better than the execution, but if any film deserves some bonus points for originality, this is it. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 15, 2016
93% La La Land (2016) An enchanting composition, a magical musical indeed. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 12, 2016
72% Nocturnal Animals (2016) An utterly fascinating motion picture, even with all of its deficiencies, that ventures deep into the difficult wilds of the artistic experience and has the audacity to be vicious once it gets there. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 12, 2016
89% Loving (2016) A down to earth ode to love itself, albeit in a rather mild form, sweetly acted by two exceptional actors. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 11, 2016
61% Snowden (2016) All the impressive casts in the world can't save a two-and-half-hour story with only two meaningful plot points in it. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 11, 2016
86% A Monster Calls (2017) Giving this film to a person who has yet to experience tragedy for themselves is arming them against future strife. I don't just recommend J.A. Bayona's movie, I deem it necessary.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 11, 2016
94% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) An appealing world which has been built upon the bowels of Hell, a spectacular drama with fierce performances and fiery sensuality. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 8, 2016
46% The Bad Batch (2016) The Bad Batch isn't necessarily bad by itself, but it feels bad compared to all the other, similar batches we've seen over the years. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 8, 2016
63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) Such an unapologetic throwback to old-fashioned western heroism that 'de-visionist' is the only descriptor that reasonably comes to mind. It's an uncomplicated, handsome, exciting action-adventure. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 8, 2016
67% Personal Shopper (2017) A textured perspective on the horror genre, matched beautifully by Kristen Stewart, who gives an astounding performance as a woman who's not quite sure how badly she's been torn apart. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 8, 2016
26% Suicide Squad (2016) Even a great idea and a wonderful cast can't fend off a serious case of the blahs‐ CraveOnline
Posted Aug 5, 2016
56% Jason Bourne (2016) Jason Bourne is like SPECTRE without any of the good parts. And if you're saying to yourself, "SPECTRE has good parts?" then let me assure you, compared to Jason Bourne it does. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 26, 2016
36% Blair Witch (2016) Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett may not reinvent the Blair Witch, but they definitely prove that it can still be scary. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 23, 2016
87% Don't Breathe (2016) The blind man's house becomes a Rube Goldberg machine of suffering, for just about everybody, and it's a twisted delight to watch that chain of events unfold. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 22, 2016
76% Lights Out (2016) For a long time it's a 'Don't go in there' film of the highest calibre. Sadly, it turns into a 'Don't go there' film by the end. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 21, 2016
84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Finally recaptures the spirit of the original, and it's beyond entertaining. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 15, 2016
73% Ghostbusters (2016) A smart and exciting comedy, and a solid new entry into the classic series. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 10, 2016
74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Illumination's new animated comedy is basically a $75 million, feature-length, funny pet video. At least it's a good one. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 6, 2016
36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) The Legend of Tarzan needed to make us care about this character again, but unfortunately the only thing relatable about him is his desire to stay retired. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jul 1, 2016
54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) An outrageous political commentary for an era of outrage politics. It waffles between being completely irresponsible and completely necessary. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 29, 2016
75% The BFG (2016) The BFG is light to the point of being luminous. It is a fantastic fantasy. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 28, 2016
31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) Roland Emmerich's latest film may be the most absurd movie of the summer (and that's saying something), but it's also a lot of fun. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 24, 2016
78% The Shallows (2016) There are better killer shark movies than The Shallows (and there are killer shark movies that are gloriously worse), but Jaume Collet-Serra's film is toothsome enough to be worth watching. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 23, 2016
57% The Neon Demon (2016) It is a celebration of superficial loveliness and a punishing indictment of the type of people who are only superficially lovely. It is shallow and complicated. It is disgustingly beautiful and beautifully disgusting. It is brilliant filmmaking. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 23, 2016
69% Central Intelligence (2016) While the plot of Central Intelligence may not be anything new, it plays great because Johnson and Hart are great together. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 15, 2016
38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) It's like this movie has a strange kind of power... a 'turtle power' if you will... that annihilates all of the cynicism in its path. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 2, 2016
34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) What Now You See Me 2 lacks in prestige it makes up for in showmanship. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jun 1, 2016
28% Warcraft (2016) A flawed but likable adventure that I would happily go on again, preferably as a double feature with The Beastmaster, Legend or Ladyhawke. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted May 24, 2016
62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) By trying to recapture the magic of the original, Neighbors 2 has disproved the existence of magic. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted May 17, 2016
48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Plays more like an overblown episode of the 1990s cartoon series than anything else, and I wouldn't consider that a compliment.‐ CraveOnline
Posted May 9, 2016
17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) As a unique production - free from the heavy baggage of the previous film - it might have been a halfway decent fantasy adventure. Sure, it's no Conan the Barbarian but Conan the Destroyer? Maybe. Just maybe. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Apr 22, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) It is entertaining without being fluffy. It has consequence without being dire. It is the floor of a child's bedroom, covered in action figures who are perpetually in mid-conflict, whose limitations have yet to be discovered. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Apr 13, 2016
22% The Boss (2016) If only 1/3 of a comedy is funny, can it really be recommended? ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Apr 8, 2016
9% God's Not Dead 2 (2016) If any movie treated Christians as badly as God's Not Dead 2 treated atheists, then Christians would be entirely justified in making another God's Not Dead movie about it. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Apr 1, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) This film has turned all of its great characters into perfunctory plot points, in the service of a plot that doesn't even work well. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 22, 2016
69% Operation Avalanche (2016) A film for nerds, of the film, science and conspiracy variety. The attention to detail is astounding and the obsession with art and history is infectious.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 14, 2016
83% Midnight Special (2016) Jeff Nichols and his impressive cast and crew deserve credit for making something old feel fresh again.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 13, 2016
89% Another Evil (2015) It's a horror-comedy without much horror or comedy, because the seriousness of the protagonists' baggage saps away most of the humor, and the laid back filmmaking undercuts any opportunity for scares.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 13, 2016
76% Keanu (2016) I laughed hard enough while watching Keanu that I began to seriously worry about losing consciousness.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 13, 2016
5.5/10 67% The Automatic Hate (2016) There's very little to even be passionate about in this film that was, ostensibly, all about passion. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 11, 2016
90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) I put it to you that ending of 10 Cloverfield Lane sucks. Now let me explain why. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 11, 2016
98% Zootopia (2016) Teems with sight gags and puns and pop culture references, but it's all an excuse to use the buddy cop genre they way it was always intended, as a form of social commentary. ‐ CraveOnline
