Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/10 89% The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) The Kindergarten Teacher is painful to watch primarily because it uses exploitation as a means to further understand an overlooked woman trying to stand out among the world's population.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 79% Sadie (2018) An ultimately imbalanced, slow, and a coming-of-age tale that is deeply flawed‐ The Young Folks

2.5/5 88% First Man (2018) First Man has trouble balancing the toll it takes on astronauts with everything else and where there should be emotion, a sense of urgency, and some sense of pride, there is an emptiness.‐ Movies with Mae

2/5 31% Venom (2018) Venom won't be going on anyone's best lists for 2018, but if you intend to see it anyway, see it with the expectation that you won't be getting much out of it but a few laughs, a very lively performance from Hardy, and an incredibly forgettable story.‐ Movies with Mae

4/5 88% All About Nina (2018) All About Nina is one of those films that sneaks up on you because you're not expecting it to be as good as it is.‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 68% The Oath (2018) The Oath plays well into the familial drama that can happen over opposing political views, but its insistence on becoming more of a thriller later only gives it so much momentum before quickly running out of fuel. ‐ Movies with Mae

4/10 11% Life Itself (2018) Even with an incredible cast, the film seeks to be more than what it is, is far more concerned with its ending, and neglects and uses all of the characters on its way there.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 66% Sierra Burgess Is a Loser (2018) Its heart is in the right place and it really focuses on the insecurities women can face with regards to body image and the need to be seen as perfect, but its delivery leaves much to be desired.‐ The Young Folks

3/10 10% Peppermint (2018) With so many plot holes, a paper thin attempt at a story, and detrimental stereotypes, Peppermint is more frustrating than anything else and is an example of the ways in which Hollywood needs to shed its own biases.‐ The Young Folks

2/5 72% Remember (2016) The laser focus on remaining a mystery and choosing not to involve itself in the depths of the character's emotional journey or the aftermath leaves a vacant hole in the film's story.‐ Movies with Mae

3/5 83% Hello, My Name is Doris (2016) "Hello, My Name is Doris" never quite strays into anything deeper than what it presents, and the film spends too long on the unrequited love between Doris and John, but it has a certain and distinct charm that's hard to escape. ‐ Movies with Mae

2/5 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) "Allegiant" combines nice set pieces and cool effects but the action is generally bland and the plot even more so.‐ Movies with Mae

3.5/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Eye in the Sky" builds up the tension and suspense to the point where it becomes unbearable. The film is littered with political commentary and is ambitious and works great as a thriller where no one is right in a tough situation. ‐ Movies with Mae

2.5/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) As a comic book fan myself, "Batman v Superman" has its moments, but is underwhelming as a film and lacks any fully realized characters. ‐ Movies with Mae

2/5 18% I Saw the Light (2016) With no emotional attachment to the characters and a plot that struggles to stay interesting, "I Saw the Light" is often dull and a hard sell. ‐ Movies with Mae

2.5/5 28% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) There are a couple of genuine chuckles here and there, but what the film ultimately lacks are the endearing qualities and surprisingly funny and heartwarming moments that made the first one such a hit. ‐ Movies with Mae

3/5 95% Marguerite (2016) Catherine Frot's performance as the titular title character is notable and layered, and the film provides a wonderful supporting cast. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
3/5 53% Lolo (2016) The film's intention is to be ludicrous and outrageous, taking from similar domestic comedies of the past, and it works just enough to keep you entertained, but by the end has you question "Lolo's" underdeveloped conclusion. ‐ Movies with Mae

3/5 83% Midnight Special (2016) There's something frustrating about the overall lack of detail that was needed to bring us just a bit closer to Alton and his journey. Regardless, Nichols' sci-fi mystery stands strong enough on its own merits. ‐ Movies with Mae

3.5/5 74% Louder Than Bombs (2016) "Louder Than Bombs" is a very intimate affair. The plot is as simple as they come, but it's how the perspectives and scenes shift from character to character and points in time that give strength to this film. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
3/5 73% Miles Ahead (2016) Don Cheadle's ambitions for his first directorial feature don't completely pan out in terms of story, but "Miles Ahead" at least stands out in its unique execution, if nothing else. ‐ Movies with Mae

2/5 22% The Boss (2016) "The Boss" forces all its characters on us and doesn't have a direction that justifies any of the events in the film. A disappointing comedy that struggles to keep its story afloat. ‐ Movies with Mae

2.5/5 53% Demolition (2016) In a movie about a man who tries to find a way back into the life he's emotionally left, there is no sense of gravitas or proper character development.‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
2.5/5 80% Wedding Doll (Hatuna Meniyar) (2016) This lack of rise and fall causes the progress of the story to dwindle and remain mostly stagnant. All of these things unfortunately hinder an otherwise good central mother/daughter relationship. ‐ Movies with Mae

3.5/5 82% Juliet, Naked (2018) Juliet, Naked is a simple story lovingly wrapped in genuine discussions about life. And it's these discussions that really fuel the film and round out its rougher edges.‐ Punch Drunk Critics

4/5 95% Sing Street (2016) Carney nails the tone of the film and everything from the costumes, to the dialogue and music will have you leaving the theater feeling uplifted and tapping your feet. ‐ Movies with Mae

3.5/5 90% Green Room (2016) "Green Room" is a fun horror thriller, with a disturbing group of bad guys preying upon punk rock kids who are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's bloody and not for the faint of heart, but definitely worth the watch. ‐ Movies with Mae

4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "The Jungle Book" has all the "bare necessities" and more with an outstanding cast...dazzling cinematography, strong themes, brilliant character interactions and edge-of-your-seat moments to relish. ‐ Movies with Mae

2/5 30% Criminal (2016) "Criminal" ultimately lacks finesse and the stakes don't feel powerful enough to bring the suspense to a head. Despite the multi-talented cast, the film is a thriller that is rather forgettable. ‐ Movies with Mae

3.5/5 97% The Dark Horse (2016) Propped up by good storytelling and powerful performances, "The Dark Horse" is uplifting and moving without falling into the usual traps that occur with other films of its kind. ‐ Movies with Mae

1.5/5 8% Rio, I Love You (Rio, Eu Te Amo) (2016) "Rio, I Love You" is made up of segments that don't flow well. Overly long and boring, the film never truly captures the vibe and personality of its title city. ‐ Movies with Mae

3/5 19% Ratchet & Clank (2016) The film is what it sets itself up to be, which is a cute and fun adventurous outing. And if you're nostalgic for a Saturday morning cartoon kind of feel, then "Ratchet & Clank" is worth checking out. ‐ Movies with Mae

3.5/5 78% Keanu (2016) Funny, smart, and full of action, "Keanu" is basically the best of Key and Peele, and if this is what we always have to look forward to in their films, then the future is bright. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
1/5 6% Mother's Day (2016) "Mother's Day's" attempts at being funny miss the target by a long shot and to be blunt, it is downright boring. Saying the film is an underwhelming catastrophe is an understatement.‐ Movies with Mae

3.5/5 100% Fireworks Wednesday (Chaharshanbe-soori) (2016) "Fireworks Wednesday" brings an organic, sympathetic, and humanistic take on themes that have long been explored. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
3/5 81% The Family Fang (2016) "The Family Fang" is a fairly solid feature that explores familial relationships in a different context. It also questions the dedication to art by way of sacrificing personal relationships for it. ‐ Movies with Mae

4.5/5 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) With swift pacing, a generally well-rounded story, and fantastic action sequences, "Civil War" is not to be missed.‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
2.5/5 62% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "The Man Who Knew Infinity" isn't a terrible biopic, but as a film, it plays it too safe and keeps its characters from being fully realized. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
2/5 59% High-Rise (2016) "High-Rise" is a highbrow genre art film that is ultimately unappealing. Its attempts at sophistication fall short and its story is too chaotic and laid out in a way that is incoherent. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
3/5 90% A Bigger Splash (2016) "A Bigger Splash" is gorgeously shot, taking pure advantage of its location to embody the story it wants to tell...However, the final 20 minutes change the film and not for the better.‐ Movies with Mae

3/5 87% The Lobster (2016) "The Lobster" is a film that may confuse as much as it may delight.‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
3/5 57% Money Monster (2016) Jodie Foster's "Money Monster" is a high-stakes thriller that doesn't work on every level, but still amasses some enjoyment for the hour and a half that you're watching. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
2.5/5 23% Being Charlie (2016) "Being Charlie" tries to cover several aspects...but the lines are not connected enough for it to have any kind of substantial emotional effect on the audience.‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
4/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) It's ultimately Gosling and Crowe's dynamic that is the strength of the film. "The Nice Guys" is aware of itself; it's silly and occasionally ridiculous, but in all the best ways possible. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
2.5/5 85% The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016) "The Idol" leaves a lot to be desired and a documentary-style format may have served Assaf's journey better. This isn't to say that it's a bad film, but it is ultimately underwhelming.‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
3/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "X-Men: Apocalypse" lacks a thorough emotional investment in the apocalyptic events happening in the film and the villain is underwhelming, but the new mutants and some of the action prove to be enough to redeem some of the downsides. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
3.5/5 78% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping" is not an intimately deep exploration of the music industry as a whole, but by playing it for laughs, it resonates even in its ridiculousness. ‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
2.5/5 36% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) "Out of the Shadows" might be good for the kids, but it isn't fun most adults would enjoy unless you're already a major fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.‐ Movies with Mae

3/5 79% The Conjuring 2 (2016) While there are some genuine scares and a definite creepy factor, this sequel may please the average horror fan, but the story isn't as tight this time around.‐ Movies with Mae
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
3/5 35% Now You See Me 2 (2016) The film definitely banks on its mystery, illusions and humor as well as on the strength of its actors. The combination of these elements...bring audiences to experience this film as a fun-for-all, cinematic rendezvous.‐ Movies with Mae
