Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
87% Shirley (2020) Shirley weaves superb dramatic and comedic acting from all four of its leads into a dream-like journey befitting Jackson's masterful literary style.‐ Mashable

66% All the Bright Places (2020) The movie misses the enchanting nature of Niven's original words, a disappointment that's made worse by the author's role in creating it.‐ Mashable

88% Onward (2020) I went in with doubt. Now, I can't wait to see it again. But this time I'm bringing Cheetos. And taking the freeway.‐ Mashable

92% Fyre (2019) Using deliberate pacing, creative narrative building, and wildly resourceful imagery, Fyre manages to transform its seemingly mundane subject into a tense slow burn with new consequences around every corner. ‐ Mashable

90% Paddleton (2019) What lies beneath the terrible promotion and equally terrible title is one of the most heartbreaking and nuanced on-screen relationships I have ever seen - the exact nature of which I struggled to pin down.‐ Mashable

78% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) Scene by scene, the documentary spotlights Holmes' unnerving behaviors, shaky voice, and mesmerizing, beautiful eyes to build up the scare factor associated with her power and intelligence. ‐ Mashable

80% The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story (2019) In an increasingly competitive genre, a really bad guy at the center of your scam documentary isn't enough to make it stand out. ‐ Mashable

58% Pet Sematary (2019) By building familiar scary imagery atop unceasing adult fears, Pet Sematary captures pragmatic, unshakable panic like a firm gut check. ‐ Mashable

31% The Silence (2019) Rather than settling for following a successful formula, The Silence pushes the tried-and-true premise from its upsetting origins to its unthinkable limits. ‐ Mashable

65% The Perfect Date (2019) Brooks isn't the only shallow character in this exhausting story. His dueling love interests Shelby and Celia, played by Riverdale's Camila Mendes and Laura Marano, get written into similar corners. ‐ Mashable

73% The Perfection (2019) In its final form, this one-of-a-kind genre Frankenstein is a stand-out terror in an increasingly inventive and competitive field. Controversial, slippery, and sickening, The Perfection will get you screaming, then talking. ‐ Mashable

38% Point Blank (2019) For the most part, Point Blank is forgettable - a fact that feels not only like a letdown for viewers, but a disappointment for leads Mackie and Grillo.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2019
88% The Great Hack (2019) The documentary doesn't present much new verified information to feed our hunger for answers, but it does revel in retreading criticisms gone by. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2019
78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Scary Stories struggles to get around to making whatever additional point it had, instead using a wealth of in-between scenes to justify its feature-length format. ‐ Mashable

65% Falling Inn Love (2019) Falling Inn Love has a decent shot at making you feel fantastic this weekend. Or, at the very least, giving you the chance at a well-deserved nap.‐ Mashable

82% Judy (2019) Judy had time to tell the fun and interesting parts of Garland's life, but not enough time to tell all of it. Not time enough to make her a person beyond the sound bites and the public dramas... Time enough for Zellweger, just not time enough for Judy.‐ Mashable

53% American Dreamer (2019) It's a far cry from Gaffigan's typical optimism, and not anywhere near as funny. But as is often the case in comedy, American Dreamer works because it feels true, and bleakly, unapologetically possible.‐ Mashable

37% In the Tall Grass (2019) As brilliant as it is stupid, Natali's take on King and Hill's work is a doozy. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2019
80% Fire in Paradise (2019) Whether you see Fire in Paradise as a cautionary tale, wake-up call, or simply great storytelling, it is paramount that you do see it. ‐ Mashable

40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Mistress of Evil could have done anything it wanted with its unconventional villain. And yet, for some reason, Disney chose to clip her wings - keeping her story from ever taking flight.‐ Mashable

77% Doctor Sleep (2019) If you head into Doctor Sleep anticipating the same eerie horror, you'll be disappointed. But bring an open mind (and 151 spare minutes), and you'll get a steal. ‐ Mashable

53% Noelle (2019) If you're looking to placate some rowdy children or cranky grandparents this holiday season, then Noelle will hit the spot. But if you're looking for a new Christmas tradition, Santa's sister can't deliver - at least, not in the ways we'd wished for.‐ Mashable

50% Earthquake Bird (2019) It's as if they built a portrait of a fascinating female killer and then chickened out, settling into the Lifetime "men are terrifying" model instead of exploring something more dynamic. ‐ Mashable

31% Io (2019) IO's clichéd reaches for emotional resonance continue throughout the film, landing each time with a hollow thud that left me begging for a toxic storm to wipe the characters and their broody monologues off-screen.‐ Mashable

81% Overlord (2018) Out of fear or sheer admiration, these images are going to stick with you.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2019
93% CAM (2018) CAM will suck you in, chew you up, and spit you out. But, be warned: once you hit play, you'll need plenty of time post-credits to do your own digesting.‐ Mashable

85% Dumplin' (2018) While imperfect, Dumplin' asks not only its characters, but its audience to find loving common ground by admitting a simple truth.‐ Mashable

100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) The beauty of this piece is found in its verbalization of what so many of us self-deprecators, professional and amateur alike, feel on a daily basis-a need to excuse our own existence. ‐ Mashable
