Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
57% Valley Girl (2020) With the chemistry and shameless nostalgia-grab of jazzercise, leg warmers, and 80s pop, there's enough to Valley Girl to entertain, although there's admittedly little there to impress.‐ Pajiba

89% Selah and the Spades (2020) [I]f you want a fresh, aesthetically provocative experience and don't mind going on a bit of a meandering stroll, there is definitely something here worth checking out.‐ Pajiba

56% The Hunt (2020) That said, I do feel fully qualified to say that The Hunt is a limping dumpster of a film that holds little appeal regardless of your political persuasion.‐ Pajiba

86% Emma. (2020) The film might not have convinced me to try tackling the source novel again, but I enjoyed every minute of time spent with a story that in the past left me grinding my teeth in annoyance, which is no small feat.‐ Pajiba

74% The Lodge (2020) The Lodge is fifteen minutes of interesting exposition followed by a stagnant hour and a half of waiting for everyone to just die already so that this slog of a movie can finally be over.‐ Pajiba

21% Like a Boss (2020) [Y]ou're best off avoiding this depressingly standard January dump flick and letting it fade quietly into the obscurity to which it is destined.‐ Pajiba

89% 1917 (2020) So much of the best film craftsmanship functions on an almost subliminal level, but in 1917 crafts are put front and center in a starring role, and the results are extraordinary. ‐ Pajiba

71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) While The Next Level falls into the typical sequel trap of unsuccessfully putting on some shiny bells and whistles to distract from a fundamental lack of new story ideas, it strongly resembles its predecessor in both pitfalls and merits.‐ Pajiba

21% Playing with Fire (2019) While it's a premise with decidedly limited potential, it could have been something watchable, but terrible writing, utterly bizarre pacing, and thoughtless, rote execution doom it to a far more dismal fate.‐ Pajiba

73% Harriet (2019) It's well researched, well crafted, well-acted, and ultimately well worth your time. But its overall adherence to tired old biopic conventions ultimately keeps it from being truly great, and that's a damn shame.‐ Pajiba

96% First Cow (2020) First Cow's unexpected wholesomeness is as refreshing as a sea breeze, cozy like old slippers, and exactly the sort of content I want tattooed right on my eyeballs in these trying times.‐ Pajiba

98% Varda by Agnès (2019) Varda by Agnès is both a heartfelt farewell and an excellent Varda primer.‐ Pajiba

96% The Irishman (2019) At once fresh and pleasantly familiar, innovative and nostalgic, watching The Irishman feels like meeting an old friend for the first time - the sort of delightful impossibility that can only be crafted by a true magician.‐ Pajiba

91% Bacurau (Nighthawk) (2020) It's two hours of thought-provoking entertainment that are well worth your time, even if it is tragically easy to imagine an alternate universe where a more polished version of this film exists, something truly great instead of just remarkably good.‐ Pajiba

98% Rodents of Unusual Size (2018) Rodents of Unusual Size is informative and entertaining and, in light of the subject matter, shockingly pleasant to watch.‐ Nonfics

99% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) A wonderful reminder that documentaries can be both joyous and deep at the same time.‐ Nonfics

80% Our Blood Is Wine (2018) A documentary with far more on its mind than fermented grape juice, though it sometimes seems at a loss for what to say and when to say it."‐ Nonfics

100% Boston (2017) It's a commendable tribute, and as someone who has watched the race and enjoyed it before, I feel all the more ready to shout myself hoarse on the sidelines now.‐ Nonfics
