Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
D 38% Wendy (2020) For all the Zeitlins' noble intentions to make a contemplative art piece that says something important about aging and loss of innocence, Wendy is a joyless, hopeless, pointless mess. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

D 28% The Rhythm Section (2020) The filmmakers got ahead of themselves, envisioning big box office and endless sequels, when they should've focused on getting the first movie right instead.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

A- 82% Queen & Slim (2019) Credit Matsoukas and screenwriter Lena Waithe for making a provocative movie that's worth the ride.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

C+ 94% Honey Boy (2019) Instead of being a journey of self-reflection and awakening, the movie is a jumble of mixed messages about love and surviving traumatic relationships.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

A- 73% Harriet (2019) The movie's ace in the hole is Cynthia Erivo as Tubman, in a pitch-perfect lead performance. The Tony Award-winning actress gives Tubman the warmth, intelligence and fearlessness the true-life American heroine deserves.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Expectations are largely met thanks to Schwarzenegger, whose arrival well into the movie's second half adds a spark that even Hamilton's presence somehow doesn't ignite.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B+ 61% Brian Banks (2019) It's a quintessential feel-good movie, sincere in its intentions and, thanks to fine performances, nearly impossible to resist.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

C- 15% A Score to Settle (2019) A Score to Settle ends with lots of bullets but with very little bang.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B+ 63% Changeland (2019) A small film in which everyone is nice... But it still works, because of the two leads' natural chemistry, and because Green avoids any hint of millennial hipsterism or cynicism. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

A- 61% Trial by Fire (2019) The movie can feel overwrought at times, but the performances are filled with such conviction, it's impossible not to become invested in Todd's story...‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

C 70% Happy Death Day 2U (2019) The reboots this time feel, for lack of a better word, repetitive. It's like being told the same joke repeatedly without ever reaching the punchline.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B 42% What Men Want (2019) Henson is fierce, funny and always fun to watch. She and Hodge have a palpable chemistry, and their characters' burgeoning romance should have been the real focus of the movie, not [Henson]'s workplace drama.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
