Birth of the Dragon

3.3

2017 | Drama | Action

Marred by nearly innumerable shortcomings, all of which combine into a conventional mess of a film.

2017.08.25

Brigsby Bear

8.3

2017 | Drama | Comedy

Absurd and funny, sweet and earnest, and endlessly riding an undercurrent wave of darkness.

2017.08.22

The Hitman's Bodyguard

5.0

2017 | Action | Comedy

Fails to be either an original action film nor a satisfactory all-around comedy, it has its moments where both genres can shine...

2017.08.21

Lemon

4.2

2017 | Drama | Comedy

Purposefully confounding. It does not want to be accessible.

2017.08.21

Logan Lucky

7.5

2017 | Action | Comedy | Crime

Soderbergh remains at the top of his game. His vision controls this whimsically haphazard narrative with artistic precision.

2017.08.19

The Glass Castle

4.2

2017 | Drama

More contrived than it is emotionally affecting, making poor work out of its source material.

2017.08.13

Girls Trip

5.8

2017 | Comedy

Starts off moving toward a successful end, then gets blocked by some sour gag or cliche narrative beat.

2017.08.10

Detroit

8.3

2017 | Drama | History | Suspense | Crime

The performances and visual presence of its director keep the film from slacking on pace or cinematics.

2017.08.06

The Dark Tower

4.2

2017 | Fantasy | Horror | Action | Western | Science fiction

Uninspired: the setting, the score, the story, and the climax.

2017.08.03

Atomic Blonde

5.8

2017 | Action | Suspense | Mystery

Denies us access to its protagonist and weaves a story that actively hides what is most interesting.

2017.07.29

The Emoji Movie

0.0

2017 | Animation | Comedy

A gaudy neon mess of epically tone deaf proportions, and there is no use wasting any more time discussing it.

2017.07.28

Dunkirk

9.1

2017 | Drama | Action | History | Suspense | War

With an epic scale on a tight runtime, Dunkirk is efficient storytelling at its finest.

2017.07.23

Kuso

6.7

2017 | Horror

Grotesque to the nth degree.

2017.07.21

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

4.2

2017 | Adventure | Action | Science fiction

Vibrant and bright, throwing science fiction imagery in our faces until the cows come home. But it could use more than that.

2017.07.21

Wish Upon

0.0

2017 | Horror

Wish Upon is starvation. It is the conscious lack of sustenance.

2017.07.14

War for the Planet of the Apes

9.1

2017 | Drama | Science fiction | War

Has a surprising amount of depth in its storytelling...

2017.07.13

The Big Sick

10

2017 | Drama | Comedy | Love

A tonally pitch perfect comedy...

2017.07.09

Spider-Man: Homecoming

7.5

2017 | Adventure | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

An entertaining and lively entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

2017.07.09

2:22

0.0

2017 | Drama | Suspense

A woven artifice of suspense-devoid “twists” and “turns”...

2017.07.04

Okja

8.3

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Drama | Science fiction

The humor is humorous. The emotional moments pull at the heartstrings.

2017.07.04

Win It All

6.7

2017 | Comedy

A light dramedy with a lot of weight behind its characters.

2017.07.03

The Beguiled

7.5

2017 | Drama | Western

Attractive to look at, so much so that it becomes hard to see the film for its narrative.

2017.06.30

The House

5.8

2017 | Comedy

You may laugh once or twice, but the film itself is doomed to a future of cable airplay and obscurity.

2017.06.29

Baby Driver

9.1

2017 | Action | Crime

Each frame and sonic moment provides the viewer a new morsel from which entertainment can be gleaned.
