Latest Quick Ratings

What are QuickRatings?

Approved Tomatometer critics rate and provide brief quotes to movies seldomly reviewed in our database - mainly older films and obscure limited releases. Full-length reviews are not necessary, and thus, will not be available. QuickRatings are counted towards The Tomatometer.

12 Strong

" A likable and fittingly strong cast carries this remarkable story, which is not exactly remarkably told. Let's call it more trigger happy than memorable. "

Phantom Thread

" Writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson weaves an elegant and often humorous treatise on manipulation and manners in the high-end province of fashion design. It also features one last onscreen performance by the intense Daniel Day Lewis. "

I, Tonya

" Margot Robbie just about lands a triple Axel in a dazzling performance as maligned skater Tonya Harding. Mom (Allison Janney) glides easily into some dark places, too. "

Call Me by Your Name

" There's just so much to discover in director Luca Guadagnino's take on a 2007 novel of the same name: Some beautiful Italian images, a few simply smart exchanges, and an '80s love story pertinent to our times, to name just a few. "

The Post

" Though director Steven Spielberg gets most of the newspaper stuff right, some clunkiness remains, including Tom Hanks' shaky performance as executive editor Ben Bradlee. "

Righteous Kill

" Much of Righteous Kill is presented as a confession by one character... It's an interesting device, but it smothers any impact of suspense that the film may have developed because the outcome appears too cut and dried. "

Molly's Game

" No one talks the way Aaron Sorkin writes it, anyway, and now his first movie as a director rings with self-importance, too. Add Jessica Chastain as the same kind of tough cookie she played in last year's barely seen 'Miss Sloane,' and this 'Game' is over. "

All the Money in the World

" The sensational Michelle Williams and grand Christopher Plummer, replacing the disgraced Kevin Spacey, bring gravitas to Ridley Scott's already crafty kidnap thriller. "

Darkest Hour

" Comparisons with the powerful 'Dunkirk' are inevitable, but Gary Oldman soars as a bigger-than-life Winston Churchill in a first-rate, historical film. "

Downsizing

" 'Downsizing' suffers from more mood changes than a holiday dinner with ornery relatives, not to mention a third straight Matt Damon performance to leave fans scratching their heads. "

The Disaster Artist

" Director and star James Franco simply gets how to make a good film in equal measure to the ineptitude of Tommy Wiseau, whose classically bad movie becomes the subject of this very funny one. "

Cape Fear

" Tedious remake of a "thriller" that wasn't that thrilling to begin with "

Marshall

" Chadwick Bozeman excels again in his third biopic in four years, this time the tamely named 'Marshall.' Though 'Thurgood' might have been a wiser title, more than a few entertaining and important moments remain in an occasionally uneven telling. "

Ingrid Goes West

" If there's any recent film that has dealt with our craze for social media in the most intelligent and assured of ways, it would be Matt Spicer's "Ingrid Goes West." "

The Big Sick

" An effortlessly great film is born in the process. This is the best Judd Apatow movie and it wasn't even directed by Apatow "

I, Tonya

" Gillespie clearly takes a page out of the Scorsese rulebook as the DNA of "Goodfellas" is imprinted all over his film. There are worse movies to blatantly copy in this day and age and, quite frankly, Gillespie pulls it off "

Molly's Game

" As in every Sorkin screenplay, the dialogue cascades at a frenetic pace, but Chastain nails each beat she's given with a performance that's sexy, smart and mesmerizing to behold. Once again, she's the best reason to watch any movie she's in. "

Thoroughbreds

" If "Heathers" was more artsy and minimalist, you'd get Cory Finley's finely attuned Thoroughbred "

Victoria & Abdul

" Though its breeziness mostly disappears after the first 30 minutes or so, thank goodness Dame Judi Dench, as the titled Queen, sticks around for the duration. "

Cardinal

" The economical efficiency of Cardinals is impressive. More impressive still is the way it traverses its fragile narrative with a confident understanding of its stakes. "

American Made

" Tom Cruise once again refuses to act his age, this time prancing merrily into some extreme mayhem and a cadre of mostly notorious, '80s-era newsmakers. "

Brad's Status

" For some reason, Ben Stiller returns to "Walter Mitty" mode, and even some fine work from Austin Abrams (as his son) can't save us from the monotony. "

Battle of the Sexes

" The story becomes much more than simply a tennis exhibition. And, quite fittingly, Stone, Carell, a grand ensemble cast, and their "Little Miss Sunshine" co-directors mostly get back to the top of their game. "
