T-Meter Title | Year
81% Downton Abbey (2019) As cinema, it's pretty but mediocre. As delightful fan service, it can't be beat. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) We'll just applaud the director for ending on such a discussable note - and for offering up one of the more fascinating, thoughtful, visually rich, well-acted and just all-around entertaining films of 2019. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

89% Rocketman (2019) Regardless of whether it secures the appropriate huzzahs and awards, Rocketman is a cinematic, artistic and musical success anchored by a stunning lead performance. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

97% Booksmart (2019) Booksmart is so good that it may actually go down as one of the best teen comedy films of all time. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
81% Long Shot (2019) Long Shot isn't really what we'd call hilarious, but it's fun, sweet and pleasant, with two leads who really do have great chemistry with each other. What more could you ask from a rom com? - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Endgame is an extremely well-made film, helmed by two directors who knew exactly what they were doing the whole time. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

91% Shazam! (2019) It was one of the best payoffs in the final act of a superhero movie that I've ever seen. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

77% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) The subject matter was so engrossing you almost didn't have to produce a great documentary in order to capture peoples imaginations. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

85% The Wife (2018) Goofy-ass film, amazing performance. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
27% Rent Live (2019) The screwup on this one is about to become legendary and will probably have massive effects on any live musical theater performances on television going forward. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

99% Tea With the Dames (Nothing Like a Dame) (2018) The real meat of the film is how respectfully it portrays their insane level of talent and knowledge and how refreshingly realistic it is in how it portrays their advanced age. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

93% The Favourite (2018) This film is mean but hilarious; visually arresting and stunningly acted. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2019
98% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Easily one of the best film's of the year, Marielle Heller's Can You Ever Forgive Me? sports career-best performances from Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant in a tender, biting, funny story about middle-aged failure and bitterness. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

67% Vice (2018) Adam McKay's Vice is an energetic and entertaining look at the pursuit of power...but overall, the film's a mess and doesn't know what it wants to say about the topics it raises. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2019
65% Aquaman (2018) Aquaman is so exquisitely tailored to and fitted around the outsized personality and impressive form of Jason Momoa that it's almost impossible to distinguish star from vehicle from character. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2018
79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) The pleasures in Mary Poppins Returns are simple, deliberately naive, and speak in a clear and direct manner to the hearts of children. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2018
87% First Man (2018) Neil Armstrong and the men of the space program truly were heroic; not just in their bravery, but in their persistence. When First Man sticks to these ideas, it's stirring and engrossing. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

90% A Star Is Born (2018) A Star is Born is American mainstream cinema at its very finest. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
53% Maleficent (2014) There are times when it's fun, but it's never as fun as it could've and should've been. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2018
68% They Came Together (2014) It's all mildly entertaining (mostly because of the two leads), but too often comes off like either an extended Saturday Night Live sketch or an actual (and bad) romantic comedy. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2018
51% Unbroken (2014) It's all quite beautiful to look at at points, but it never indulges in the emotional weight of what's being portrayed and it manages to make this harrowing, hard-to-believe tale ... boring. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2018
93% Wonder Woman (2017) Wonder Woman sits, as she should, both with the pantheon of great heroes, as well as above it. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
69% Ocean's 8 (2018) All the creative thinking seems to have dried up, leaving a bunch of very good performers weakly making their way through barely existent material. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

96% Black Panther (2018) It is a beautifully shot family melodrama with a uniformly excellent cast imbuing every scene and interaction with affection, fear, or anger so deep, you feel it as if you were watching your own family suffer. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

89% The Imitation Game (2014) As wonderful as Cumberbatch's performance is in many ways, we can't help thinking Turing deserved a better, more well-rounded exploration of his life than this film allowed for. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT

85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Despite the crowding and the abundance of story, the Russos offered up something that was relatively easy to follow, because all of the various strands of the story laid out over the last ten years were tossed aside for a simple and basic plot. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It is a rollicking, action-filled space adventure full of rogues and monsters, evil-doers and femme fatales, space ships and robots. - Tom & Lorenzo EDIT
