Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

20% Area 51 (2015) You can literally skip the first 45 minutes of Area 51 and not miss a thing.‐ CraveOnline

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

15% The Transporter Refueled (2015) There are different kinds of dumb, and some are more enjoyable than others.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2015
46% A Walk In The Woods (2015) The phony high key lighting, the absence of real drama, and an over reliance on cheesy jokes leaves A Walk in the Woods feeling less like a theatrical release and more like a straight-to-video Grumpy Old Men sequel.‐ CraveOnline

45% No Escape (2015) It may be vicious, and it may be uncomfortable, but it is undeniably intense. ‐ CraveOnline

8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) Like too many video game movies it comes across like a facsimile of a facsimile, a blurry reenactment of a knockoff.‐ CraveOnline

83% Mistress America (2015) Watching Gerwig fight to give Brooke dignity in a story that is specifically designed, by the protagonist mind you, to use her for intellectual sport is a grand and complex experience.‐ CraveOnline

67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) In the case of Style v. Substance, this retro spy caper finds in favor of Style.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2015
79% Cop Car (2015) It evolves into a crime drama of an unnerving calibre, a devilish subversion of youthful fantasy and a viciously sabotaged adult thriller.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2015
9% Fantastic Four (2015) Finally, a superhero movie without action, character development or a plot.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2015
9/10 99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) It's a long series of cleverly orchestrated and very successful jokes supported by a very sweet story, and ewe are going to love it.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2015
2.5/10 26% Vacation (2015) It is a catalogue of victimization, a road map of pain, a desperate cry for help.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2015
9/10 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) It's not a life-changing experience but it's impressively entertaining and it doesn't insult your intelligence.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2015
2/10 19% The Vatican Tapes (2015) The bad news is the apocalypse is coming. The good news is you'll be too sleepy to care.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2015
7/10 57% Paper Towns (2015) Kind hearts, good laughs, and a conclusion that almost makes you glad you sat through one of the most insufferable first acts in movie history.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2015
5/10 16% Pixels (2015) Custom made to appeal to all audiences, but not in the way that actually works. There isn't something for everyone, there's just nothing for no one.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2015
64% The Visit (2015) Although it would be fair to describe The Visit as 'M. Night Shyamalan's best film in years,' it is not a statement that should come without serious qualifiers.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2015
7.5/10 81% Ant-Man (2015) Clunky and strange but refreshingly simple.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2015
5/10 56% Minions (2015) Where the first two Despicable Me's had a heart, Minions has only an adrenal gland.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2015
5/10 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) The future looks dull indeed.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2015
7/10 34% Max (2015) Tugging at the heartstrings isn't always a delicate process. Sometimes just plain yanking gets the job done. ‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2015
6.5/10 46% Ted 2 (2015) One of those Chia Pet movies: completely unnecessary, but vaguely amusing if you happen to have it right in front of you.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2015
9/10 98% Inside Out (2015) [Pixar]'s most complex and intriguing film.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2015
7.5/10 71% Jurassic World (2015) If you can accept that not every part of Jurassic World is worth celebrating, and that some of it is downright backward, you might still have a good time.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2015
8/10 71% The Nightmare (2015) While Ascher's attempts to visualize their nightmares are sometimes genuinely disturbing, the really scary part is watching how ordinary people, when faced with the inexplicable, begin to rationalize their visions and lose their grip on reality.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2015
7.5/10 58% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) If Insidious: Chapter 3 doesn't have the same impact as the first two films, it's only because Whannell doesn't wave his arms to get our attention. It's a more effective movie overall.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2015
9/10 94% Spy (2015) Paul Feig doesn't bring out the best in Melissa McCarthy. He's a skilled wingman who lets her shine on her own.‐ CraveOnline

4/10 19% Aloha (2015) Maybe Cameron Crowe was attempting to evoke the confusing complexities of adult life, but if so, he did his job too well. Confusion washes over this film in waves.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 28, 2015
3.5/10 48% San Andreas (2015) The worst disaster movie since Disaster Movie.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 26, 2015
5/10 32% Poltergeist (2015) It's all so damned familiar, whether you've seen the original Poltergeist or not.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 22, 2015
0.5/10 19% The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015) If you survive this experience you will be scarred, and unlike the first two disturbing but effectively horrific films in this series, it won't even feel like a personal achievement.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 21, 2015
9/10 92% When Marnie Was There (2015) An act of love that could only stem from understanding precisely what it means to feel unloved. ‐ CraveOnline

9/10 50% Tomorrowland (2015) Inspiration: achieved.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 17, 2015

8.5/10 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) Funny characters, funny dialogue, funny scenes, funny everything.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 14, 2015
5.5/10 76% The Connection (2015) Although all the pieces form a tidy little puzzle, the end result has about as much impact as spending two hours assembling a picture out of colored cardboard.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 12, 2015
10/10 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) The kind of superlative action filmmaking that rips away at our collective acceptance of mediocrity. The bar has been raised.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 11, 2015
1.5/10 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) A sad, sorry film that could very well come to represent the absolute nadir of its genre.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted May 8, 2015
8.5/10 85% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) Waiting in rapt, nail-biting tension for even the tiniest bit of catharsis equates to wonderful drama, and if adorable hats can also enter into the equation, all the better.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2015
6.5/10 58% Maggie (2015) In a genre practically defined by fatalism, Maggie probably reigns supreme.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2015
7.5/10 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) A gooey plate of nachos that shouldn't constitute your whole diet, but is perfectly enjoyable for now, even when it congeals at the end into a wet, sloppy mess.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2015
2/10 5% Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) A sequel has a responsibility to cultivate its garden. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 never gets further than the fertilizer.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2015
7.5/10 93% Ex Machina (2015) A TED Talk in the form of a movie, with a few creepy twists and suspenseful deceptions that keep the plot moving forward.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2015
8/10 58% Grave Encounters (2011) If it reaches your hometown, seek it out and enjoy some good old-fashioned creepy thrills while clutching your date tight and trying to pretend you're not as spooked as they are.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2015
7.5/10 85% Trainwreck (2015) Trainwreck isn't perfect, but it's hardly a... railway disaster.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2015
5/10 28% Insurgent (2015) Jumps headfirst into the mythology of the franchise, so that the only way to have fun is to become truly invested. Which would be fine if the story were intriguing enough to bother.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2015
6/10 17% The Gunman (2015) Too portentous to really entertain, even in spite of itself.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2015
7/10 30% Lost River (2015) At its worst, Lost River is a film to be looked at, not experienced, but at least it always looks intriguing.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2015
9/10 96% Nina Forever (2016) A sexy, funny, morbid and beautiful film for horror lovers with a heart, and romantic audiences with a dark side.‐ CraveOnline
