T-Meter Title | Year
3/4 No Score Yet Brotherhood (2019) Bell succeeds in stripping back the mythos of what it means "to be a man" and how strong one can really be while embracing compassion, vulnerability and love instead. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 No Score Yet She Never Died (2019) To put it plainly, after watching even a few minutes of She Never Died, it's clear that any of us would be lucky to watch Oluniké Adeliyi read the phone book, her weekly grocery list or nod even a friendly hello. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3.5/4 80% Greener Grass (2019) Greener Grass is as enticing as it is bizarre, and even if you don't immediately find yourself frolicking amidst its braces-wearing populace, give it time: you'll eventually be lured in by their take on suburban normal. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 80% Dolce Fine Giornata (2019) Dolce Fine Giornata is a beautiful movie with an interesting and important perspective, but its message would be even more effective if it was navigated through characters you really got to know. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 89% Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score) (2020) It's no real murder-mystery, but it does pose questions that transcend who did what to whom and when. One of which being whether or not you can really play "jazz" in Scrabble. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3.5/4 89% Riot Girls (2019) At least in Riot Girls, we have Nat and Scratch to keep us afloat. But you do leave the film asking yourself what any of us are doing to fight against those same things. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3.5/4 100% Knuckle City (2019) Knuckle City cannot be overlooked. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 88% And the Birds Rained Down (Il pleuvait des oiseaux) (2019) Touching, heartbreaking, and dangerously thought-provoking, And the Birds Rained Down will force you to re-examine your relationship with yourself, the world around you, and the people you love. - Globe and Mail EDIT

1.5/4 55% Becoming Nobody (2019) Becoming Nobody will illuminate your inner cynic, especially since so much of what Dass teaches is borrowed so heavily from another culture. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 86% This Changes Everything (2019) It's an exercise in storytelling that evolves quickly into a valuable lesson for anyone who purports to be a feminist, an ally or a film and television lover. You'll never watch either the same way again. - Globe and Mail EDIT

1.5/4 14% The Hustle (2019) "You could've been more!" is something I wanted to stand up and scream during the closing credits of The Hustle... starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. Instead, I packed up my popcorn, left the theatre and wondered how it all went wrong. - Globe and Mail EDIT

1.5/4 27% Mortal Engines (2018) Fortunately, all of it is brilliantly and efficiently explained in an interesting and compelling way. Just kidding. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3.5/4 99% Tea With the Dames (Nothing Like a Dame) (2018) We're offered the precious illusion that we're close enough with four pillars of English theatre that they're chatting to us about their memories and feelings; that we get to see them as people and as friends. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 64% Peter Rabbit (2018) A children's film that makes its adult audience take stock of their own actions and ways of thinking, particularly as the story ends up abandoning the concept of heroes and villains, and paints its characters with shades of grey. - Globe and Mail EDIT

2.5/4 87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) With so much covered in under two hours, it might have been more effective to concentrate on a specific era or aspect of each character's story. - Globe and Mail EDIT

4/5 68% The Cured (2018) Heartbreaking, compelling and terrifying, The Cured is a quick way to re-examine our capacity for forgiveness, tolerance and above all, fear - Globe and Mail EDIT

3/4 90% Their Finest (2017) There aren't many movies about the propaganda machine during the Second World War, but Lone Scherfig's smart, heartwarming take on the efforts of the British film industry makes up for the sparse coverage. - Globe and Mail EDIT

3.5/4 78% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) A legitimate look at celebrity culture delivered in a way that's as funny as it is thought-provoking. - Globe and Mail EDIT
