Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 100% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Maintaining an audience's sympathy for a character through their most fumbling, frustrating lows requires compassion and clarity of purpose, both of which McCarthy amply demonstrates here.‐ AV Club

B- 78% Apostle (2018) Evans' signature intensity translates seamlessly in Apostle...‐ AV Club

B 91% Heavy Trip (Hevi reissu) (2018) While the film's attempts at slapstick can be painful-in a cringing way, not in a brutal way-Heavy Trip does succeed in creating perhaps the most charming ensemble of morbid dorks since What We Do In The Shadows.‐ AV Club

B 72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) As Bad Times At The El Royale proves, even the most razor-sharp writer needs some humanity mixed in with the wit if they want to endure very long.‐ AV Club

B 84% Destroyer (2018) At the center of it all is Kidman, the indisputable heart of the film, whose all-in performance elevates Destroyer above a well-made cop drama and into something special.‐ AV Club

B+ 75% Suspiria (2018) A two and-a-half-hour wallow in the primal recesses of the human psyche that's alternately calculatedly subdued and completely... crazy.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
B 67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) A high-end version of one of those direct-to-video kids' movies that play on the Disney Channel all throughout October, all cobwebbed tombstones behind iron cemetery gates and dead leaves crunching underfoot.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2018
C+ 64% Lizzie (2018) Putting Kristen Stewart and Chloë Sevigny on screen together was a wonderful choice-one that doesn't deserve to be drowned in a torrent of confusing, implausible, and just downright dull ones.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
B 85% A Simple Favor (2018) If your tastes in crime fiction lean more toward whiskey-soaked detectives, A Simple Favor might be bubbly enough to give you a headache despite the darkness of its themes. But that's okay. More prosecco for the rest of us.‐ AV Club

C+ 59% Slice (2018) With so many elements in play, the effect is like putting a dozen toppings onto a pizza.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
C- No Score Yet The Bad Seed (2018) ...this cardboard-cutout quality extends to the dialogue scenes between the adult actors, where Lowe's inexperience as a director really shows. ‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
A- 97% I Am Not a Witch (2018) Nyoni is clearly confident in her vision and the story she wants to tell, and in her capable hands, the result is spellbinding.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
C+ 26% The Nun (2018) Its script utilizes the kitchen-sink approach common to contemporary Hollywood blockbusters-and the film is worse off for it.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
B 76% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2018) If Cattet and Forzani's earlier work was the whispering touch of a blade across a supple throat, this film is a dead animal rotting in the sun.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
D 26% A.X.L. (2018) It's utterly forgettable.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
B 70% The Ranger (2018) Wexler has interpreted her influences thoughtfully and inverted them cleverly. It's the smart kind of dumb fun.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
B- 85% The Wife (2018) It's Close's wonderfully subtle characterization of Joan that lifts The Wife above its cliché setups and neat role reversals, which is really rather ironic. Once again, it's the wife doing all the hard work. At least this time, she gets top billing.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
C 68% Summer of '84 (2018) Summer Of '84 never really gives us a reason why these kids should be friends, and although we spent most of the film watching them hang out, the direction is too stiff to call it a proper hangout movie.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
B 89% Skate Kitchen (2018) If you have a teenage girl in your life who's into skate culture, it just might be her new favorite movie.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
B 86% Champion (2018) If you've been missing the goofy earnestness of '80s action movies, then we've got good news-they haven't gone away, they simply changed location.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
B- No Score Yet Buffalo Boys (2018) On a sheer popcorn-entertainment level, the film is great fun to watch.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
B+ 74% Five Fingers for Marseilles (2018) At times, the film is so mythic that it strains credulity, but if you're a fan of spaghetti Westerns, you know that's part of the deal.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
B 84% The Captain (Der Hauptmann) (2018) The Captain is a bleak film, but then again, these are bleak times.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
B- 100% Chained for Life (2018) The script's showbiz satire shows occasional flashes of savage brilliance, and the meta aspects are thoughtfully composed, if occasionally self-indulgent.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B 100% Luz (2019) Unapologetically strange and utterly fearless.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B 92% Cam (2018) Cam is a rather brilliant contemporary take on the Hitchcockian identity thriller, a feminist update on David Lynch and Brian De Palma by way of Unfriended.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B 87% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2018) An unusual-and mostly successful-hybrid of a pulpy adventure tale straight out of a midcentury men's magazine and a meditative reflection on loneliness and aging...‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B+ 100% People's Republic of Desire (2018) A microcosm of the bizarre fantasy economy and complex, parasitic interdependencies of late capitalism as a whole.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B 100% Boiled Angels: The Trial of Mike Diana (2018) It's a fascinating case study of government overreach far grosser than the comics it claimed it was protecting people from, and one that should be more widely known.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
C 80% Tales from the Hood 2 (2018) It won't win any awards for subtlety, but if you're a fan of the original, you already know that.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B- 92% Nightmare Cinema (2018) Although "Mirari" is nothing groundbreaking, it's nice to see Dante having fun behind the camera again.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B+ 100% McQueen (2018) Manages to both emphasize McQueen's groundbreaking work and give moving insight into his personality.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
B- 78% The Night Eats the World (La nuit a dévoré le monde) (2018) To Rocher's credit, this is not nearly as tedious as it sounds.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
C 34% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) Somehow, The Catcher Was A Spy is flavorless and unexciting, thanks to an execution as formulaic as a well-worn copy of The Joy Of Cooking.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
C+ 49% Superfly (2018) Jackson's uninspiring performance only serves to highlight the film's other weaknesses, like the corny aphorisms that pepper its dialogue and the much-hyped soundtrack...‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
B+ 85% Nancy (2018) Nancy sets its title character up as a lost, lonely woman in an alienating world, then pushes the audience's sympathy for her as far as it can go.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
B 86% Upgrade (2018) A genre-bending summer treat for those who don't mind a little (okay, a lot) of blood with their popcorn.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 29, 2018
C 25% Overboard (2018) Without Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell and their effervescent chemistry, all you've got is a screwball comedy about kidnapping, made even more complicated by adding racial dynamics into the mix.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
C+ 55% Duck Butter (2018) Duck Butter is clever without being all that hilarious, and personal without being all that revealing.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
C- 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Sloppily assembled teen genre fare that produces more giggles than gasps.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
B+ 94% The Endless (2018) What puts The Endless ahead of many indie genre films of its type is not only Moorhead's skill as a cinematographer, but also the judicious way in which he and Benson apply their presumably limited budget.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
C- 20% Tyler Perry's Acrimony (2018) What was Tyler Perry going for here?‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2018
B- 79% I Kill Giants (2018) It all, well, works, thanks largely to [Madinson] Wolfe and her portrayal of a difficult, terrified, brave, lovable girl.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
C+ 55% The Lodgers (2018) The film's obsession with the concepts of family and fate cause it to leave unexplored some other interesting themes, like the encroachment of the 20th century on the European aristocratic class.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
B- 80% The Party (2018) Potter's screenplay keeps throwing new twists at her characters throughout the film, each more pointed and darkly comedic than the last.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2018
D+ 12% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Ana can now stand up to Christian's emotionally manipulative, controlling tendencies (remember, kink ain't the same as abuse, kids). She even shows agency once or twice. But what replaces it is just as risible.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
B 75% Small Town Crime (2018) It combines familiar character actors and familiar story elements to produce a sufficiently satisfying, if not especially memorable, film perfect for whiling away a rainy afternoon.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2018
C- 28% Proud Mary (2018) Henson's both-feet-on-the-ground performance tries to rein in the chaos, but the simple fact is that she-and the moviegoers, many of them people of color, who will come out to see this film-deserve much better support behind the camera.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2018
C- 26% Bright (2017) Finally, high fantasy for the sunglasses-on-the-back-of-the-head set.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
C+ 80% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) In everything from the score to the costumes and hairstyling, McGuigan seems to think that there's no such thing as too much, a lavishness that just isn't supported by the film's obviously modest budget.‐ AV Club
