Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
25% London Has Fallen (2016) It's so deliriously insipid that it's impossible to take seriously, in large part because it takes itself so seriously. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Mar 4, 2016
16% Gods Of Egypt (2016) Takes bonkers ideas and whitewashes them into generalized mediocrity. It's so bad it's just bad. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Feb 26, 2016
84% Deadpool (2016) In many respects it's the best X-Men movie yet, because it seems to care less about 'world building' and 'big ideas' than about a single interesting character with a unique voice, joking his way through a satisfying, albeit conventional story.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Feb 8, 2016
81% Southbound (2016) The overall effect is striking, and the best segment is so inspired that it lifts the rest of the film up with it.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Feb 3, 2016
85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) It may not rank amongst The Coen Brothers' best work, but few films do. It's still a high-spirited comedy of the highest order, smart and hilarious. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Feb 3, 2016
63% The Finest Hours (2016) This film is barely seaworthy, but it gets us where we're going. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 28, 2016
85% Christine (2016) Antonio Campos brings us dangerously close to Chubbuck's point of view, so that we can better understand the nature of her tragedy and, hopefully, recognize the traps we each set for ourselves. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 26, 2016
20% Yoga Hosers (2016) It's a sweet-natured, dumb little movie and you'd have to be having a pretty bad day not to be amused by at least some of its shenanigans. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 26, 2016
97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) There aren't a lot of truly fantastic kids movies out there nowadays, but this is one of them. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 26, 2016
98% Love & Friendship (2016) A lovely and intricate web with a seductive spider at the center, played deftly by Kate Beckinsale. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 24, 2016
96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) It captivates without ever calling attention to itself. It feels real. It feels honest. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 24, 2016
50% 31 (2016) A wild murder spree that engages the senses and frequently, very much on purpose, assaults them. Zombie's fans will probably be pleased.‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 24, 2016
77% Wiener-Dog (2016) The satirical and melancholy worldview of Todd Solondz can sometimes be so hard to swallow that it goes down more easily in smaller doses, especially with an adorable widdle dog as a chaser. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 23, 2016
87% Other People (2016) Watching a wonderful person die and the toll it takes on their family isn't (and shouldn't be) easy, but Chris Kelly makes the experience meaningful. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 22, 2016
50% Belgica (2016) Belgica perfectly captures a particular time and place, but it fails to make us want to stay there for very long. All it really does it make you want to buy the soundtrack. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 21, 2016
50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) 13 Hours is sound and fury, signifying sound and fury, and it's hard to deny that it works. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 15, 2016
10% The Forest (2016) A film as psychologically ambitious as The Forest demands nuance and we get only bullet points instead. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Jan 7, 2016
60% Joy (2015) David O. Russell has dipped a trifle in chocolate, and turned it into a truffle. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 23, 2015
92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Abrams seems content to capture the spirit of the original series and simply remix the rest of it until Star Wars miraculously seems fresh again. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 16, 2015
0% The Ridiculous 6 (2015) Sandler's new straight-to-streaming feature The Ridiculous 6 isn't any worse than his theatrical films. It's just as bad as always. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 11, 2015
88% The Big Short (2015) A rich and damning dramedy, acted to damn near perfection [...] It's impossible to walk away without feeling like you were just shot in the stomach by the quote-unquote 'American Dream.' ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 10, 2015
81% The Revenant (2015) A violent and masterfully acted tale, beautifully filmed and handsomely produced. It has pacing issues, and that's a hindrance, but if you think about it the whole film is about hindrance. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 4, 2015
43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) Ron Howard has essentially thrown a gauntlet back in time and said, 'Mr. Melville, I can do better.' Needless to say, he has not done better; not one jot, not one tittle. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 3, 2015
80% Macbeth (2015) A droning, moaning, tone deaf presentation in which nobody - not even the Bard - ever makes themselves truly heard. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 3, 2015
65% Krampus (2015) Krampus is the real deal: a great Christmas movie and a great horror movie, gruesome but loving, naughty but nice. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Dec 3, 2015
24% Victor Frankenstein (2015) Igor now has a movie of his own, but like Igor himself, it is merely a footnote in a richer, more meaningful tradition of Frankenstein. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Nov 24, 2015
70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) This isn't a cautionary tale about the evils of war and propaganda, it is a cautionary tale about the dangers of padding. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Nov 20, 2015
66% The Night Before (2015) An often hilarious, almost always funny R-rated comedy for the holidays. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Nov 19, 2015
65% Spectre (2015) There's a distinct sense that Bond himself (and not just Daniel Craig) is tired of this repetitive, soul-crushing crap and ready to move on. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Nov 3, 2015
90% Bone Tomahawk (2015) Zahler's commitment to objective realism, despite his out-there premise, denies the audience the sort of engagement that might have made Bone Tomahawk truly subversive, and truly great. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 23, 2015
16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) An adequate straight-to-video time waster that seems to have accidentally been given a blockbuster budget and A-list stars. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 23, 2015
13% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) The sort of scary that's only fun in a crowded room, where the law of averages demands that at least one or two people aren't horror movie junkies and will jump at just about anything. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 23, 2015
18% Jem and the Holograms (2015) Bright and enjoyable despite (and sometimes because of) its flaws. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 22, 2015
71% Crimson Peak (2015) If you can slip into the kinky folds of Guillermo del Toro's latest love letter to weirdness, you will find yourself welcomed and content. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 16, 2015
34% Knock Knock (2015) Manages to be impossibly conservative while being impossibly sleazy, and that's the way we're supposed to like it, I suppose. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 9, 2015
76% Goosebumps (2015) So unexpectedly deft at balancing humor, drama and scares that it seems destined to become a Halloween classic, if only at slumber parties. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 5, 2015
91% Bridge of Spies (2015) Doesn't manipulate us nearly as well as its hero manipulates Russia and East Germany. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Oct 4, 2015
84% The Walk (2015) Zemeckis films this feat so beautifully that the only proper response is awe. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 26, 2015
10% Stonewall (2015) The worst Quantum Leap ever. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 25, 2015
62% Truth (2015) Relies so heavily on the significance of its source material that it never seems to push any further and present the story with a matching level of gravitas. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 18, 2015
73% Everest (2015) The only thing worth talking about on the car ride home is how they assembled such an impressive cast when most of them had nothing to do but 'be cold.' ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 17, 2015
53% Lolo (2016) I'm not sure if the most rational response to Lolo is amusement or horror, but I do enjoy asking the question. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 16, 2015
61% Legend (2015) Flies whenever the Krays go Kray-Kray and plummets whenever they try to act normal. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 15, 2015
69% The Danish Girl (2015) A work of astounding beauty, bolstered by evocative cinematography, a sensitive screenplay and two powerhouse performances that rank among the best in years. Except the ending, which sucks. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 13, 2015
24% Hellions (2015) If the purpose of a horror movie is to be horrific, then Hellions gets the job done. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 12, 2015
92% The Martian (2015) Watney reroutes the thingamajiggers into the whosamawhatsits in order to hussafuh the shabadoo, except you replace those with real words, and let Ridley Scott loose to direct his best film in years. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 12, 2015
94% Sicario (2015) Denis Villeneuve is a master of grim determination. This is a compliment, because although it is one thing to be gritty, it is another thing to be all willy-nilly about it. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 11, 2015
20% Area 51 (2015) You can literally skip the first 45 minutes of Area 51 and not miss a thing. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 8, 2015
48% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) The plot is a junior jumble of hack mysteries and largely unremarkable characters, but the experience of watching it unfold is so downright electric that you never quite give a damn. ‐ CraveOnline
Posted Sep 7, 2015
15% The Transporter Refueled (2015) There are different kinds of dumb, and some are more enjoyable than others. ‐ CraveOnline
