T-Meter Title | Year
B 81% The Amazing Johnathan Documentary (2019) Like The Amazing Johnathan's act, it's a funny, trippy, lively bit of sleight of hand that can often make you feel like you're seeing something extraordinary, even if it's just some prankster fucking with you. - AV Club EDIT

20% Dana Carvey - Squatting Monkeys Tell No Lies (2008) As a reviewer, the highest praise that I can give Squatting Monkeys is that Carvey avoids doing either Garth or The Church Lady. - AV Club EDIT

100% Threads (1984) For all its grim hopelessness, Threads had a subtextual faith that people would understand all this before it was too late. - AV Club EDIT

B- 100% Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life (2018) It's a welcome, often agreeably funny celebration of their great careers. But ultimately it will prove as essential to your appreciation of their comedy-or as skippable-as five minutes of banjo. - AV Club EDIT

C- 33% Super Troopers 2 (2018) All the fresh comedy, as it were, consists almost entirely of gags about those wacky Canadians. They like listening to Rush and Barenaked Ladies! They love pancakes and hockey! - AV Club EDIT

B+ 100% Too Funny To Fail (2017) In many ways, Too Funny To Fail captures a time when television was actually more willing to take those kinds of risks and abuse. - AV Club EDIT

B 91% Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press (2017) [A] compelling if slightly lopsided documentary ... - AV Club EDIT

C 94% SCORE: A Film Music Documentary (2017) Unfortunately, it aims to be as comprehensive as possible about a subject as old as cinema itself, and as a result ends up feeling both breezy and overlong. - AV Club EDIT

C- 18% Baywatch (2017) Ultimately, Baywatch can never make up its mind whether it wants to mock glitzy softcore action-fests or just be one. - AV Club EDIT

B+ 90% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) What it offers is a more personal chronicle of Lynch's formative years, told through extensive use of old photos and home movies, that ends just as he's beginning to put together Eraserhead. - AV Club EDIT

A- 100% One More Time With Feeling (2016) As a documentary, One More Time hesitates to say anything too neatly or directly. In that way, it is a uniquely effective meditation on grief. - AV Club EDIT

D 58% She's Out of My League (2010) Though Baruchel does his best to ground the film in some vague semblance of identifiable reality, he's surrounded on all sides by human cartoons, each pushing bad advice or roping him into the next grotesque comic setpiece. - AV Club EDIT

D+ 19% Gentlemen Broncos (2009) Every frame of Hess' new film...is crammed with so much deliberate tackiness that it borders on exhausting self-parody. - AV Club EDIT

B 39% Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) It's remarkable that none of this proves exhausting. - AV Club EDIT
