T-Meter Title | Year
22% Playing with Fire (2019) While it's a premise with decidedly limited potential, it could have been something watchable, but terrible writing, utterly bizarre pacing, and thoughtless, rote execution doom it to a far more dismal fate. - Pajiba EDIT

74% Harriet (2019) It's well researched, well crafted, well-acted, and ultimately well worth your time. But its overall adherence to tired old biopic conventions ultimately keeps it from being truly great, and that's a damn shame. - Pajiba EDIT

90% First Cow (2020) First Cow's unexpected wholesomeness is as refreshing as a sea breeze, cozy like old slippers, and exactly the sort of content I want tattooed right on my eyeballs in these trying times. - Pajiba EDIT

99% Varda by Agnès (2019) Varda by Agnès is both a heartfelt farewell and an excellent Varda primer. - Pajiba EDIT

96% The Irishman (2019) At once fresh and pleasantly familiar, innovative and nostalgic, watching The Irishman feels like meeting an old friend for the first time - the sort of delightful impossibility that can only be crafted by a true magician. - Pajiba EDIT

89% Bacurau (Nighthawk) (2019) It's two hours of thought-provoking entertainment that are well worth your time, even if it is tragically easy to imagine an alternate universe where a more polished version of this film exists, something truly great instead of just remarkably good. - Pajiba EDIT

98% Rodents of Unusual Size (2018) Rodents of Unusual Size is informative and entertaining and, in light of the subject matter, shockingly pleasant to watch. - Nonfics EDIT

99% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) A wonderful reminder that documentaries can be both joyous and deep at the same time. - Nonfics EDIT

80% Our Blood Is Wine (2018) A documentary with far more on its mind than fermented grape juice, though it sometimes seems at a loss for what to say and when to say it." - Nonfics EDIT

100% Boston (2017) It's a commendable tribute, and as someone who has watched the race and enjoyed it before, I feel all the more ready to shout myself hoarse on the sidelines now. - Nonfics EDIT
