Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 40% Den of Thieves (2018) This gritty crime drama is so indebted to the work of Michael Mann, it might as well be called Residual Heat.‐ Time Out

3/5 87% Only the Brave (2017) While aspects of the routine become mundane, it's the developing brotherhood amongst the men, and the sense of community around them, that ultimately strengthens this story.‐ Time Out

2/5 29% I Do... Until I Don't (2017) Bell's film ends up stuck between being a standard audience-pleaser and something more subversive. For a movie about marriage, you wish it would commit one way or the other.‐ Time Out

2/5 10% Shut In (2016) As Mary loses sleep, her paranoia worsens, yet Christina Hodson's monotonous script fails to make Mary's psychological struggles feel any more severe than a case of misplaced keys.‐ Time Out

8/10 81% Actor Martinez (2017) Blurring the line between a narrative movie and a documentary, Actor Martinez is a film experiment that's difficult to unpack but hilarious to watch unfold.‐ We Got This Covered

7/10 86% Kicks (2016) First-time filmmaker Justin Tipping enlivens the familiar beats of coming-of-age movies with a character-focused, beautifully shot debut film set in a poor Oakland neighborhood.‐ We Got This Covered

4/10 70% Little Boxes (2017) Failing to puncture the tension with consistent humor, the self-seriousness of each scene grows increasingly tedious as Little Boxes runs out of stimulating material.‐ We Got This Covered

4/10 61% Race (2016) Race fails to properly contextualize the achievements of Jesse Owens by imbuing its story with a modern, sterilized sensibility.‐ We Got This Covered

6/10 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) Though entertaining at times, Kung Fu Panda 3 isn't entirely different from watching that video of Tian Tian, the Smithsonian's National Zoo panda, rolling in the snow on an hourlong loop‐ We Got This Covered

3/10 9% Point Break (2015) The Point Break remake dials up the adrenaline with epic stuntwork but fails to weave any of the action into its incomprehensible and boring plot.‐ We Got This Covered

4/10 15% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) The off-putting CGI Chipmunks coast through a derivative, squeaky-voiced adventure with fleeting moments of charm.‐ We Got This Covered

4/10 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) A stellar cast and compelling final twist is not enough to redeem the languid pace or uncomplicated mystery behind Secret in Their Eyes. ‐ We Got This Covered

2/10 19% Love the Coopers (2015) Love the Coopers strains and struggles to weave a story about the pains and pleasures of family around 14 caricatures and a ravenous St. Bernard.‐ We Got This Covered

5/10 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) The Peanuts Movie is more tribute album than fresh material. It aims to honor Charles M. Schulz's legacy while doing little to sustain it.‐ We Got This Covered

8/10 97% Brooklyn (2015) Led by Saoirse Ronan, the earnest 1950s-set Brooklyn weaves an enchanting love story into the tale of an Irish immigrant's American assimilation.‐ We Got This Covered

6/10 97% Mavis! (2016) A standard but enjoyable biographical documentary, Mavis! is elevated by the warm, dynamic presence of gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples.‐ We Got This Covered

7/10 66% Nasty Baby (2015) Sebastian Silva's Nasty Baby is a sweet story that becomes enthralling, as it takes an unexpected, twisted act 3 turn.‐ We Got This Covered

7/10 83% The Walk (2015) Delivering the most exhilarating film sequence of the year, The Walk is pure, visceral fun despite its flawed, overwritten script.‐ We Got This Covered

4/10 59% Maggie (2015) Maggie is a one-dimensional portrayal of a father coming to terms with his daughter's zombie diagnosis, with ineffectual characters and more tears than emotion.‐ We Got This Covered

3/10 5% Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is a boring, lifeless, lazily written movie with Kevin James' cheap, slapstick gags repeated ad nauseam.‐ We Got This Covered

6/10 94% The Salt of the Earth (2015) The Salt of the Earth is a unique exhibition of beautiful photography, with immaculately filmed glimpses into social issues photographer Sebastião Salgado's thoughts and process.‐ We Got This Covered

6/10 40% Treading Water (2015) The Boy Who Smells Like Fish is an amusing slant on the coming-of-age film that hits occasional false moments but never wears out its welcome.‐ We Got This Covered

10/10 91% Birdman (2014) Led by a fantastic Michael Keaton, Birdman is a deeply thoughtful and darkly hilarious meta dissection of egotism that satirizes the entertainment business with a compelling visual style that is all its own.‐ We Got This Covered

7/10 83% Listen Up Philip (2014) Though far from perfect, Alex Ross Perry's new comedy, Listen Up Philip, has a distinct visual style and a biting commentary on the narcissistic mindset of creative people, making it a very enjoyable watch.‐ We Got This Covered

7/10 73% Inherent Vice (2015) Immersive and occasionally incoherent, stoner mystery Inherent Vice is a bold step for filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson that unfortunately doesn't match the brilliance of his earlier films.‐ We Got This Covered

8/10 84% While We're Young (2015) Noah Baumbach's new Ben Stiller-lead comedy has big laughs and thoughtful commentary for anyone who's thought the phrase, "when I was young."‐ We Got This Covered

8/10 89% A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2015) A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence is a beautifully shot, artfully funny, and oddly poignant view of humanity from Roy Andersson.‐ We Got This Covered

8/10 77% Rosewater (2014) Jon Stewart's directorial debut, Rosewater, is an inspiring, unexpectedly funny re-telling of journalist Maziar Bahari's 118 day imprisonment by the Iranian government.‐ We Got This Covered
