T-Meter Title | Year
72% The Aeronauts (2019) One of the most exhilarating and emotionally rewarding adventure films of the year, The Aeronauts is to 19th-century ballooning what Ford v Ferrari is to 1960s auto racing. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

4/5 97% Knives Out (2019) In an industry that often dumbs you down, Knives Out raises your IQ. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

4/5 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) [A] rare, high-octane blend of art and entertainment. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

4/5 79% Jojo Rabbit (2019) The film is wonderfully weird and irresistibly askew, punctuated by hilarity, tragedy and even anachronistic music. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

1.5/5 92% The Lighthouse (2019) Adrift on a cinematic sea? I pray Robert Eggers' Lighthouse doesn't become your beacon. You'll be dashed to death on the rocks of pretension. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

2/5 26% Gemini Man (2019) Gemini Man never quite lives up to its intriguing premise. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2019
4.5/5 69% Joker (2019) A movie that is destined to become a defining moment of the comic-book genre. And that's no joke. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2019
4.5/5 84% Ad Astra (2019) Arguably the best film of 2019 so far. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019
3/5 84% Downton Abbey (2019) A charming, if contrived, extra narrative chapter that will please most loyalists but mean little to viewers unfamiliar with the upstairs-downstairs world of the Crawley family and those who serve them. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019
1.5/5 95% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Falcon morphs from a charming, funny parable about overcoming one's disabilities to a large helping of southern-fried ridiculousness. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2019
3/5 60% Brian Banks (2019) Has little cinematic flair, a heavy-handed score, a saccharine under-taste and even some cringeworthy dialogue, but is effective for the simplest reason: You care about the main character. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

4/5 53% The Lion King (2019) Just when it starts to feel too familiar, the eye-popping animation saves the day. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

1/5 42% Stuber (2019) How does one star sound? - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2019
3/5 63% Yesterday (2019) Yesterday is a competent realization of a brilliant concept, but it could have been more. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

4.5/5 97% Toy Story 4 (2019) I don't know what you're going to do after you see the movie, but this 46-year-old plans to return home, take his toys out of the closet and treat them to some long-overdue playtime. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

2/5 61% Trial by Fire (2019) Zwick's film certainly makes sense. What it doesn't make, regrettably, is an aesthetic impact. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted May 15, 2019
1/5 60% Greta (2019) In the title role, Isabelle Huppert is miscast, mediocre and never in the least bit scary. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2019
1.5/5 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Too underdeveloped, derivative and poorly scripted for adults, and too violent and adult-oriented for children. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2019
3/5 63% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Velvet Buzzsaw is a refreshingly offbeat and irresistibly quirky comedy, with a dash of drama and a heap of horror. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2019
2/5 92% Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018) A cold, passionless, underwritten tale of a relationship wrecked by circumstance. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
4/5 93% Stan & Ollie (2019) Featuring uncannily transportive performances by Steve Coogan as Laurel and John C. Reilly as Hardy, Stan & Ollie is one of the most magical films of the last year. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3/5 37% Glass (2019) Glass glints just enough for a drink. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2019
3.5/5 35% Welcome to Marwen (2018) Admittedly, a couple of plot points either go unresolved or fall flat, but the story itself is emotionally powerful. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2019
3/5 74% On the Basis of Sex (2019) Though the film, unlike its subject, is neither exceptional nor surprising, this juror is returning a thumbs-up verdict. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2019
4/5 82% Ben is Back (2018) A powerful, personal tale of a young man in the throes of addiction, with only his mom to help him. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2018
4.5/5 96% Roma (2018) Roma is one of the year's best movies. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2018
3.5/5 93% The Favourite (2018) Lanthimos' production is one of the most beautiful and intriguing of the year - though it's unlikely to be your favorite. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2018
4/5 78% Green Book (2018) Mortensen is simply wonderful, bringing accessibility and humor to a role that, in another actor's hands, might have been relegated to a meathead racist stereotype. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2018
3.5/5 80% Boy Erased (2018) [A] slightly predictable but nevertheless meaningful portrait of a depraved belief system. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2018
2/5 91% Widows (2018) The cinematic equivalent of a half-baked turducken. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
3/5 91% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) The Coens... have experimented with shorts before (just not in their own theatrically released feature). But, as usual, they make it seem fresh. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
3.5/5 78% The Last Suit (El último traje) (2018) The film succeeds on both a metaphorical and literal level thanks to clever writing and Miguel Ángel Solá, who gives the festival's best performance. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3/5 100% Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me (2017) Sammy's spirit and talent does shine through. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Laces (2018) By the end, expect a punch in the emotional gut. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
1.5/5 67% Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel (2018) It falls flat both journalistically and cinematically. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
3/5 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) The film is the cinematic equivalent of a rudimentarily assembled greatest-hits compilation when we instead needed a collection of deep album cuts. Nevertheless, Rhapsody will rock you. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

59% White Boy Rick (2018) The production design is... impressive and, when combined with the pitch-perfect performances, overcomes a screenplay that is somewhat uneven, especially in its final act. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
2/5 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) Van Sant seems to employ disjointed editing as a stylistic crutch. That style might come across as challenging or charming to some viewers, but it lessens the emotional impact and breeds unnecessary narrative confusion. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
3/5 87% Colette (2018) Colette succeeds, despite its flaws, because of Knightley's powerhouse performance, Michael Carlin's sumptuous production design and Giles Nuttgen's sensual cinematography. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
3.5/5 93% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) Redford... is eminently enjoyable, infusing his character with relatability and humor. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
4.5/5 87% First Man (2018) Thanks to the abundance of space movies, Chazelle isn't left with many new things to say, but he does find new ways to say them. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
90% A Star Is Born (2018) Every generation needs its Star, and the latest version - starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga - is a worthwhile addition to the series. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2018
4/5 66% The Little Stranger (2018) This unexpectedly deep film leaves you thinking - not just about the destiny of its characters but the destiny of England. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
3/5 83% Juliet, Naked (2018) Juliet, Naked is often thoughtful, sweet and complicated. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
2/5 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Structurally flawed, conceptually challenged and tonally troubled. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
3/5 89% Whitney (2018) What sets Whitney apart is the extraordinary cooperation of the singer's family, friends and collaborators, who often stare straight into the camera with an intensity rarely seen in documentary filmmaking. - Orlando Weekly EDIT

2/5 91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Despite the film's sweetness and comfortable familiarity, Haley's ambition has overwhelmed his ability. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
4/5 93% First Reformed (2018) For Schrader, ideas are paramount, and he packs in plenty, none less profound than the proposition that, to survive, we must hold hope and despair in our minds simultaneously. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
3/5 84% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 is funny. Maybe not quite as funny as the first film, but the barrage of jokes - some obscured because the audience was still laughing at the last one - should stand up to multiple viewings. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
4/5 86% Tully (2018) As usual, Cody's dialogue crackles, but never for the sake of mere amusement. Her insightful subtext stays with you after the laughs fade. - Orlando Weekly EDIT
