Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% The Expanse: Season 3 (TV, 2018) "With the first episode of The Expanse's third season, Fight or Flight, everything has changed but the series still feels the same. Same snare-tight plots. Same boiling tension. Same gorgeous interplanetary scenery. Same Avasarala mic drops. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Apr 12, 2018
3.5/5 60% Krypton: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Like anything trying to take flight with too much baggage, Krypton struggles to get off the runway, but once the plots coalesce a bit, it becomes freer to find the good kind of turbulence. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Mar 21, 2018
4/5 No Score Yet Inventing Tomorrow "Inventing Tomorrow is a wonderfully hopeful profile of scientists who are old enough to grasp the gargantuan problems facing their global community, and young enough to still believe they can solve them. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Mar 2, 2018
6/10 84% Mohawk (2018) "The film is weakened by not being clearer about its magical realism, failing to take full advantage of that symbolism and to clarify the rules of the chase. " ‐ Slashfilm
Posted Feb 26, 2018
2.5/5 42% Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no renkinjutsushi) "This couldn't have been an easy series to distill into one movie, but even so, the thinness of the plot doesn't do justice to the characters or the jaw-dropping visuals and design. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Feb 26, 2018
1.5/5 15% Mute (2018) "Sometimes it feels like Jackson Pollock went bananas on a paint-by-numbers drawing of Dick Tracy...It's weirdness with a safety net, gorgeously vibrant and dull. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Feb 26, 2018
4/5 87% The Road Movie (2018) "There are also the short, sharp shocks that reach into your gut and rip a gasp out of you, but it's sequences like the couple driving through a literal forest fire that allows The Road Movie to offer something that all great movies do: a new sensation. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 19, 2018
2.5/5 67% Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Most episodes lumber at a pace that would make snails blush as if creators thought the high concepts were enough to squeeze a full story from. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 11, 2018
93% Black Mirror: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "Maybe it's because the light is brighter through the darkness, or because science fiction shouldn't solely serve the bleak, but the unabashedly romantic, thoroughly not on brand "Hang the DJ" is the best episode in the series' history. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Dec 29, 2017
94% Stranger Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "It's incredible that a kid who was missing for the entire first season is now the star of Stranger Things, but here we are, and Noah Schnapp is owning every second of his time as Will. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Oct 30, 2017
4/5 65% Lore: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Lore's best skill is explaining the magic trick while still confounding us. It uses facts to deepen the reason for our fears instead of waving them away. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Oct 13, 2017
93% Rick and Morty: Season 3 Episode 10 "After a season teasing us with the grand ascendance of Morty, the episode calmly gave us an adventure where he and Rick were on the same level, maybe not of intelligence, but of apathy, which is where it really matters. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Oct 2, 2017
97% BoJack Horseman: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "Like watching to see whether the top will stop spinning or not, we wait to see if BoJack will crack a joke, or if Todd will fly by with some kettle corn, but all that happens is the actualization of something astonishingly beautiful. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 26, 2017
82% Rick and Morty: Season 3 Episode 9 "It's hard to put a robotic finger on why the episode felt flat, but it probably has something to do with waiting so long for a character to figure out something we've known for a long time. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 25, 2017
100% Rick and Morty: Season 3 Episode 8 "This last episode was appropriately dumb, but it still fit into the deftly woven story arc that will probably see Morty strong enough to fight Evil Morty in the finale. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Sep 18, 2017
4/5 100% California Typewriter (2017) "It's a beautiful film, made with consideration for the love these typewriter buffs feel. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Aug 24, 2017
4/5 No Score Yet Junk Head "It's a fantastic world to explore, and the talent that went into making it is enormous. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Aug 4, 2017
5/5 92% Bad Genius "All of it works. None of it is wasted. Bad Genius is literally flawless. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Aug 3, 2017
4.5/5 No Score Yet A Day (Ha-roo) "It's normal to want the protagonist to win, but it's rare to want so deeply in your bones for the hero to succeed. A Day earns every inch of that. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Aug 3, 2017
3.5/5 No Score Yet Genocidal Organ (Gyakusatsu kikan) (2017) "Genocidal Organ is a stock military story dressed up in jaw-dropping new clothes. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jul 28, 2017
3/5 57% Game of Death "If Scream was a love letter to the horror genre directed by a seasoned master, The Game of Death is hate mail delivered by young upstarts. It's delivered with a wink, though. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jul 28, 2017
2.5/5 83% Tokyo Ghoul (Tôkyô gûru) (2017) "Unfortunately, Kubota doesn't inspire much interest with his performance. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jul 23, 2017
1/5 No Score Yet The Senior Class "The Senior Class is a profoundly frustrating movie. It charges boldly and with best intentions into the razor-sharp maw of a consequential, topical social issue, only to come up insultingly short. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jul 23, 2017
4.5/5 91% Lowlife (2018) "Throughout its swirling stories, Lowlife does an impeccable job of teasing, pulling back, and delivering, whether it be violence, drama, or the intermittent moment of temporary joy. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jul 21, 2017
4.5/5 71% The Final Master (2016) "The Final Master is an exceptionally good action flick. Kung Fu at its absolute finest with a classic story and solid performances to boot. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jul 20, 2017
3.5/5 92% Super Dark Times (2017) "Super Dark Times is a worthy, tightly realized thriller of young lives that's better when it's thinking deeply than when it builds with stock blueprints. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jul 20, 2017
4/5 83% Genius: Einstein (TV, 2017) "The writing from... Isaacson is equally illustrative and entertaining, utilizing the natural conflicts any of us might find in life - academic struggles, job failure, family dramatics, and romantic uncertainty - to turn Einstein from meme back into human. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Apr 21, 2017
3.5/5 73% The Legend of Master Legend: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The Legend of Master Legend is promising, yet slight. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Mar 23, 2017
4/5 No Score Yet Trapped: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It demands attention, but be warned that if you watch the first episode, you're as good as committing another nine binge-style hours of your life to it. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Feb 21, 2017
3.5/5 78% The Little Hours (2017) "It's funny and inventive. At 80 minutes long, it knows its limitations. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 30, 2017
4/5 80% Casting JonBenét (2017) "This isn't really a documentary about the Ramsays; it's about these regular people with their theories and research, and they are all of us. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 30, 2017
4/5 89% 78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene (2017) "If you're slightly interested in how movies get made, it's a treat. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 30, 2017
1.5/5 22% Rememory (2017) "It's maudlin and confused-ultimately hampered by the poisonous pairing of cliches and self-importance. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 27, 2017
2.5/5 90% Marjorie Prime (2017) "A fascinatingly humane concept deprived of its full potential impact. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 26, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet The History of Comedy "The show is fun and fact-filled. A smart peak into how the past informs the present that does right by taking the funny stuff seriously. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 25, 2017
2.5/5 72% XX (2017) "It's nice to see this kind of variation-unsettling, goofy, aggressive, redemptive-present inside a single collection. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 24, 2017
5/5 78% The Hero (2017) "This particular movie allows us a profound, sweet glimpse into this man's dreams, and in a world dominated by explosively loud cinema, this quietly poetic trip speaks volumes. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 24, 2017
5/5 64% Axolotl Overkill (2018) "Everything comes together beautifully to craft a whirlwind portrait that's mischievous, smart, and substantial. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 24, 2017
3/5 100% Free and Easy "Free and Easy (a gorgeously ironic title) fits in well with absurdist works like Waiting for Godot or anything by Eugene Ionesco-it's a bleak offering where crime (and everything else) is shoulder-shrugged out of mind. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 24, 2017
4.5/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) "The Big Sick is the complete package. An ecstatic romantic vision, unafraid of dangerous comedy, that earns all the laughs and misty eyes it goes for. Modern romantic comedies now have a standard to live up to. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 24, 2017
2.5/5 87% Wind River (2017) "The under-developed screenplay and general ordinariness of the journey prove that Sheridan has a few more belt notches to go before he lives up to his gritty promise. When he does, we're in for something incredible. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 24, 2017
4/5 80% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) "If An Inconvenient Truth prodded people with facts, its sequel grabs them by the ears until they know something. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 20, 2017
2.5/5 42% Beyond: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "That's really where Beyond shines: a production value that elevates the standard and editing that injects electricity into the familiar. It's fun and safe, with a cast that sharpens the dull edges. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 6, 2017
4/5 38% Emerald City: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Life in this version of Oz is nasty, brutish, and long. It's also a beautifully and darkly altered place we've visited before... If the rule for gritty re-imaginings is whining skepticism, this may be the exception. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Jan 6, 2017
5/5 76% The OA: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The OA is a magnificent beast. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Dec 16, 2016
94% Westworld: Season 1 Episode 10 "As promised by showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the finale of Westworld delivered on the closed loop of its story - instead of raising more questions, it gleefully decided to offer us a violent end to its mysterious delights. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Dec 5, 2016
86% Westworld: Season 1 Episode 9 "The penultimate episode of Westworld sought to burn the tent down and massacre as many non-essentials as possible. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Nov 28, 2016
96% Westworld: Season 1 Episode 3 "Dolores is a fascinating figure even before considering her incipient sentience. " ‐ Nerdist
Posted Oct 17, 2016
B 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "I can't think of a movie with a higher action to non-action ratio. Or maybe I just don't want to. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 31, 2015
92% Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (TV, 2015) "I'm glad I gave it a shot past a clunky, misfiring first episode, but the series - like a lot of reunions - is a victory lap without much consequence, despite the obvious sweat equity that was put into making it. " ‐ Film School Rejects
