Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
89% A Star Is Born (2018) Bradley Cooper's 2018 rendition of A Star Is Born manages the impossible: bringing this seemingly old-fashioned story about fame into the present while retaining its classical, timeless appeal.‐ The Ringer

81% Confirmation (2016) Confirmation registers upon revisit as something far more interesting and evocative than a historical moment's dutiful retelling.‐ The Ringer

31% 70th Emmy Awards (2018) The lack of a forcefully asserted personality, only emphasized by some unfortunately drab stage design, bled over into the rest of the show.‐ The Ringer

100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) Hannah Gadsby's Nanette is the mic drop to end all mic drops-a cross between comedy special and one-woman show that's actually a 69-minute Dear John letter to the entire enterprise of stand-up.‐ The Ringer

100% John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City (2018) Kid Gorgeous is a polished, whip-smart, joyful offering from a midcareer comic who's made all three of those descriptors a signature. To be great, a special doesn't necessarily have to be a game-changer-it just has to make you laugh.‐ The Ringer

100% Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife (2018) Where Baby Cobra saw Wong feign longing for a more traditional kind of femininity, in Hard Knock Wife she addresses the financial realities of her marriage head-on.‐ The Ringer

25% Overboard (2018) A charming but forgettable reboot...As a movie, Overboard delivers. As Anna Faris's return to the multiplex, however, it can't help but disappoint.‐ The Ringer

34% I Feel Pretty (2018) I Feel Pretty isn't just a regression from Inside Amy Schumer; it's a less shrewd treatment of almost identical themes.‐ The Ringer

100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) Rock has thus made his most personal special without ever getting that personal - a testament to his talents, not a criticism of them. ‐ The Ringer

100% Patton Oswalt: Annihilation (2017) "It's chaos, be kind" is how Oswalt closes the special, a perfect motto for both this highly specific story and whoever might be listening. It's not exactly revolutionary, but that's what makes it so profound.‐ The Ringer

92% Louis C.K.: 2017 (2017) Few comedians have managed to dodge the dog-caught-the-car problem of successful stand-ups as smoothly as C.K. has. Look no further than his latest special, Netflix's 2017, for proof.‐ The Ringer

27% Pan (2015) Because between the inadvertently hilarious and the downright offensive, Pan is a generic mold for a reboot that shares little with the original beyond a handful of proper nouns.‐ Flavorwire

74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Rowling imbues Fantastic Beasts from start to finish with a sense of discovery. ‐ The Ringer

100% Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2017) Bright Lights is a heartbreaking tribute to a singular mother-daughter relationship.‐ The Ringer

38% Staten Island Summer (2015) If [Colin] Jost is angling for a big-screen, or in this case laptop screen, career, Staten Island Summer is an inauspicious start.‐ Flavorwire
