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.

2017.06.27

The Bad Batch

5.8

2017 | Drama | Horror | Suspense

Still indicative of Amirpour’s keen eye and unique form of genre hybridity but lacking the focus and power of her first work.

2017.06.26

Transformers: The Last Knight

3.3

2017 | Adventure | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

The comedy is crass and brash to no payoff, the characters fade in and out as necessary with little depth, and the story pushes on for 40 minutes too long...

2017.06.21

Colossal

7.5

2017 | Fantasy | Drama | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

The overall themes of the film do not play out as strongly as the isolated moments.

2017.06.20

All Eyez on Me

4.2

2017 | Drama | Music

In spite of a great performance from Gurira the film is too messy from a narrative standpoint to truly encapsulate the essence of Tupac Shakur.

2017.06.17

Rough Night

6.7

2017 | Drama | Comedy

But the film takes its chances. When these chances work, they work. When they don’t, at least the screenwriters go all out.

2017.06.16

47 Meters Down

2.5

2017 | Adventure | Drama | Horror | Suspense

Offends the intelligence of its viewers with blank characters and obvious scripting.

2017.06.16

Cars 3

5.8

2017 | Adventure | Animation | Comedy

Occasional moments of situational humor work well, but these come off as exceptions more than anything else.

2017.06.15

Megan Leavey

6.7

2017 | Drama | War

The major narrative throughline is a strong and heartfelt story. Unfortunately, it is brought down by the numerous things surrounding it.

2017.06.12

The Mummy

4.2

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Horror | Action | Suspense

Somewhat competent cinematically, incompetent narratively.

2017.06.10

It Comes at Night

9.1

2017 | Horror

Leaves you both empty-handed and wanting more.

2017.06.08

Wonder Woman

7.5

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

It’s no masterpiece, but its humor and competent narrative keep it from feeling like the haphazard messes that the two previous DC entries have been.

2017.06.02

Raw

9.1

2016 | Drama | Horror

A furious implosion of the oppressed identity.

2017.06.01

The Girl with All the Gifts

7.5

2016 | Drama | Horror | Suspense

The narrative provides enough twists and turns to entertain a zombie enthusiast.

2017.05.31

The Lovers

6.8

2017 | Comedy

Has an ambitious narrative diversion from the normal marriage plots. But the execution of this narrative is sloppy at best.

2017.05.31

War Machine

5.0

2017 | Drama | Comedy | War

As a straight drama about the plight of the soldier, it can only be seen in bright, effective glimpses.

2017.05.30

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

5.0

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action | Comedy

The swashbuckling story remains a distinctly Pirates one, but it is over-loaded and heavy, dragging pacing down in the progress.

2017.05.28

Baywatch

4.2

2017 | Action | Comedy

It just doesn’t hold water...

2017.05.26

Alien: Covenant

7.5

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

The few jump scares don’t make up for a general lack of suspense in the film.

2017.05.16

Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

1.6

2007 | Fantasy | Horror | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

Incoherence both visually and narratively denies the film from having any credibility.

2017.05.08

Alien: Resurrection

5.0

1997 | Horror | Action | Science fiction

An odd, detached sequel to the Alien franchise.

2017.05.06

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

5.8

2017 | Adventure | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

Overall, the writing is just too on the nose.
