Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 60% Cassette: A Documentary Mixtape (2016) Like a mixtape made for you by an enthusiastic friend who's more concerned with cramming in all his favourite songs than making a cohesive work, it flits from topic to topic without delving deeply enough into any one area.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4/5 84% The Wife (2018) The Wife doesn't deliver the shocking blow it ought to - Runge doesn't build suspense as effectively as he could - but when Joan erupts, it's a sight to behold.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

1/5 23% The Happytime Murders (2018) As those cranky old Muppet men in the balcony, Statler and Waldorf, once said, "I've seen detergents that left a better film."‐ Winnipeg Free Press

0.5/5 23% Little Italy (2018) Canadian rom-com Little Italy tells you exactly what kind of film it's going to be in the first two minutes: a leaning tower of clichés built on a foundation of stereotypes.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4.5/5 90% Brimstone & Glory (2017) The cinematography - some by drones, some created with a Phantom High Speed Camera - is astonishing, giving us hypnotic slow-motion views of incendiary devices exploding and glorious nighttime scenes of dancers stamping.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

1.5/5 46% Skyscraper (2018) What's impossible is giving a damn. The actor's famous charisma is squandered in a role that's unforgivably bland, and not a single other person is given a back story or personality. The film resorts to almost comical shorthand for character development.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4/5 No Score Yet Ask the Sexpert (2017) The film shows the importance of Watsa's work in a country where campaigns have ended sex-ed programs in many states.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

2.5/5 63% Every Day (2018) As romance, as social commentary, as a call to "carpe diem," even as Freaky Friday-style fun - Every Day feels like a wasted opportunity on every front.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

3/5 75% Una (2017) Despite can't-look-away performances from its leads and scenes that will linger long after the lights go up, the film is ultimately unsuccessful in making a real connection.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

2/5 No Score Yet Hunting Pignut (2016) Hunting Pignut wants to embrace rebellion and the fringe, but it ends up playing by the rules.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

3.5/5 85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Several reviews have referred to Ingrid Goes West as a black comedy, but it feels more like a horror movie, albeit one threaded with satire.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) You'll leave the theatre with a smile on your face. And that's a pretty nice feeling.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

3/5 75% Ballerina (2016) With its over-familiar story and missed opportunities -- it settles for cute when it could be charming -- Ballerina is too clunky and unco-ordinated to be a classic, but young dance fans may still be inspired.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4/5 98% Kedi (2017) The beautifully filmed doc is a cat lover's dream, but it also acts as a love letter to Istanbul, its fish markets and cafés, its haphazard roads and shabby elegance, the blue expanse of the Bosphorus under gull-filled skies.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4/5 90% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) In the end... what The Art Life delivers is a fascinating portrait of a man who seems to approach his art as equal parts craftsman and esthete, who taps into his subconscious but also loves getting his hands dirty.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4.5/5 96% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) This is not John Wick-style hail-of-bullets revenge, of course. It's small and sad and wrong-headed and destined to fail, but no less devastating.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

1.5/5 11% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Their relationship, however, still suffers from all kinds of ick that prevents the film from being enjoyed as escapist entertainment.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

2/5 72% Sing (2016) The result is both manic and dull, filled with unnecessary jailbreaks and business meetings alike.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

1.5/5 40% Sadie's Last Days on Earth (2016) There's a kernel of a good idea in the hot mess that is Sadie's Last Days on Earth. Unfortunately, the film surrounding it is as shoddily constructed as a bunker with a swinging door.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

3.5/5 94% Gimme Danger (2016) There's wistfulness to Gimme Danger that rubs up against the ferocity of the music and creates a frisson of sadness.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

2.5/5 82% Unlocking the Cage (2016) We aren't particularly invested in the chimps we barely see, and the court case doesn't have the high-stakes thrill it should have; the film fails to make us care enough about either of them.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

2/5 50% Numb (2015) In the end, it's the audience that's numb, or more accurately, indifferent.‐ Winnipeg Free Press
