T-Meter Title | Year
84% Little Monsters (2019) One of the best comedies of the year, Little Monsters is an enjoyable showcase of Lupita's talents. While it doesn't offer much in terms of horror, it makes up for it with the heart and humor. - Flickering Myth EDIT

25% Gemini Man (2019) If this came out in the summer of 1997, it would be a hit. But even the very modern visuals can't save this dated action film. - Flickering Myth EDIT

68% Joker (2019) Joker offers enough to make it not a complete waste of everyone's talent, but the movie lacks that extra "wow" factor. - Flickering Myth EDIT

99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) There's not many movies this year as sleek and polished as Parasite. An absolute delight to watch with Bong Joon Ho proving himself to be a masterful director again. - Flickering Myth EDIT

86% The Nightingale (2019) One of the most powerful films in recent memory, The Nightingale is a tough viewing. Not easy to recommend, but a great viewing nonetheless - Flickering Myth EDIT

50% 3 from Hell (2019) Rob Zombie lets down fans of the Firefly Family series with a lackluster follow-up to the powerful The Devil's Rejects. While not a bad movie, a total step backwards for the director. - Flickering Myth EDIT

88% Hustlers (2019) The feel good story of sisterhood and strippers that Showgirls wanted to be. From start to finish, Hustlers is pure joy - Flickering Myth EDIT

84% Ad Astra (2019) While the craftsmanship on display here is top-notch, there was nothing beyond the surface level beauty of the film. Ad Astra's visuals deserved a different script - Flickering Myth EDIT

63% It Chapter Two (2019) An epic on the scale of modern comic book movies, It Chapter Two is a big deal for the horror genre. While not flawless, there's just so much to love being back with the Losers and Pennywise - Flickering Myth EDIT

29% Madness in the Method (2019) If anything, fans of Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse can use this as something to hold us over until Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. - Flickering Myth EDIT

89% Ready or Not (2019) If I ordered this movie at a restaurant, I'd send it back with a complaint that there's a little too much comedy in my horror. - Flickering Myth EDIT

88% Blinded by the Light (2019) One of the year's most heart-warming films, Blinded By The Light is just a joy to watch. Backed by the amazing music of Bruce Springsteen, this is a different type of musical with a message that's so needed right now. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
79% Good Boys (2019) Good Boys is a rare mix of something raunchy and something sweet as this is quite the enjoyable viewing. Just when it hits the limit of shock humor, it comes in with some real heart to balance everything out. - Flickering Myth EDIT

22% The Kitchen (2019) To say The Kitchen surprised me would be an understatement. While not as polished as others in this well-worn genre, this is a solid directial debut for Andrea Berloff with some amazing dramatic turns from Tiffany Haddish and Melissa McCarthy. - Flickering Myth EDIT

67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Who would've thought Hobbs & Shaw would make you appreciate the subtly of the Vin Diesel-led films? This is one of the weaker entries in the Fast and Furious franchise, and that's say something with Tokyo Drift. - Flickering Myth EDIT

75% The Night Sitter (2019) Christmas came early this year, and while The Night Sitter isn't the exact gift you asked for, it serves its purpose. - Flickering Myth EDIT

13% An Acceptable Loss (2019) As a fan of Jamie Lee Curtis, An Acceptable Loss is easy to recommend. But temper your expectations as the film has just as many praises as it does issues. - Flickering Myth EDIT

40% Blood Paradise (2018) Are you looking for a hilariously erotic thriller comedy? Sit down and let the weirdness of Blood Paradise wash over you. - Flickering Myth EDIT

83% Midsommar (2019) This film is undoubtedly one deliciously dark experience. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2019
64% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Nothing about this movie screams to run out and see it, but Annabelle Comes Home is still well-made enough not to be a total bust. - Flickering Myth EDIT

97% Toy Story 4 (2019) Not groundbreaking or as heartfelt as other entries, Toy Story 4 is still an enjoyable ride with your favorite toys. - Flickering Myth EDIT

23% Dark Phoenix (2019) The Fox X-Men franchise is coming to a close, and this is a disappointing ending to that journey. - Flickering Myth EDIT

No Score Yet Clinton Road (2019) Clinton Road avoides many bumps along the way to make for a quick, fun independent horror movie. - Flickering Myth EDIT

90% I Am Mother (2019) The beauty of the movie I Am Mother is the simplicity of the filmmaking and a reliance on high tension and acting to sell itself. - Flickering Myth EDIT

56% The Dead Don't Die (2019) The Dead Don't Die isn't for everyone, but fans of deadpan comedy will enjoy this zombie insanity. - Flickering Myth EDIT

No Score Yet Hallowed Ground (2019) Hallowed Ground feels like it comes from an era of horror that's seemingly out the door. - Flickering Myth EDIT

90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) Where some franchise stumble with their third movie, John Wick just keeps getting better. Chapter 3 is not only action-packed, but brings enough heart and humor to engage any viewer. - Flickering Myth EDIT

57% Aladdin (2019) Aladdin tries but never kicks into second gear. With more focus on the musical flair, this had potential to be a top tier outing. Doesn't reach those levels, and never sees a whole new world. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Rarely do event movies live up to the hype, but Avengers: Endgame shatters any expectations. A glorious superhero epic! - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2019
No Score Yet Flay (2018) While Flay isn't as dull as watching paint dry, the film misses the mark. A few good scares can't make up for plenty of weaker moments, and that's sadly the case here. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2019
54% Cruel Intentions (1999) With a sharp script and even sharper acting, it's a pleasure to watch this sexy game of chess unfold. - Flickering Myth EDIT

82% Room for Rent (2019) Room For Rent isn't tackling any new ground with its story, but Shaye brings just enough charisma and talent to keep you entertained throughout. - Flickering Myth EDIT

47% Little (2019) The lessons learned in Little are something a young person - any gender, any race - could use in such a toxic time. - Flickering Myth EDIT

5 92% Disneynature: Penguins (2019) Disneynature's Penguins tested out many times I could say "aww" in a single film. It broke any previous record as this is one of the most endearing documentaries in quite some time. - Flickering Myth EDIT

70% Climax (2019) Climax is an exercise in extreme filmmaking, and one of Gaspar Noe's best films. When the action picks up, you can't tear you eyes away from the screen - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 93% Us (2019) Us is darkly unique and insanely thrilling. Jordan Peele proves horror is on fire right now, and why he is at the forefront of the genre! Believe the hype about Us, it's that damn good! - Flickering Myth EDIT

2/5 18% The Haunting of Sharon Tate (2019) The Haunting of Sharon Tate plays more like a campy melodrama than a horror retelling of real events. The film isn't great, but the insanity is still quite enjoyable. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2019
2/5 No Score Yet Pet Graveyard (2019) It's harmless and features enough of a story to carry you through even the dullest of moments, but it lacks that extra bit of horror magic. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2019
78% Captain Marvel (2019) Captain Marvel is not going to reinvent the wheel, it's not going to break new ground, but it does what it needs to do. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3/5 50% We Are Boats (2019) When it's time to reflect on the films of 2019, it might be hard to find more movies with as much heart as this piece. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2/5 29% The 6th Friend (2016) My biggest tip for enjoying this slasher film: turn it into a drinking game and take a shot every time you predict what's going to happen. You might be wasted by the time the movie is over, but you'll enjoy The 6th Friend that much more. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2019
4/5 No Score Yet FrightFest: Beneath the Dark Heart of Cinema (2018) If you've been to a horror film festival or convention, you know the welcoming nature of the world of horror. For anyone unfamiliar, this documentary will introduce you to that and drive home how important it is for everyone involved. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3/5 72% Piercing (2019) Darkly funny, but still unapologetically grim, this plays very much like a modern version of Takashi Miike's iconic 1999 film Audition, only with a lot less of a brutal finale. - Flickering Myth EDIT
