Poster for Golden Exits

Golden Exits

5.8

2017 | Drama

It is intriguing and written with energy, but it leads the audience in a linear path to a meaning that would otherwise have a satisfying amount of ambiguity.

2017.04.07

Poster for Fast Five

Fast Five

9.1

2011 | Action | Suspense | Crime

It transcends rational thinking. It is enjoyable for its blatant, inherent flaws. It’s just damn good.

2017.04.07

Poster for Infinity Baby

Infinity Baby

9.1

2017 | Comedy

Has a lot to offer in its short runtime in the way of cinematic energy and narrative depth. And it’s also just funny.

2017.04.05

Poster for Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell

6.7

2017 | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

Utilizes strong visual effects technology to justify its live action redux.

2017.03.31

Poster for The Dark Tapes

The Dark Tapes

6.7

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

The film isn’t perfect, and adding up the minor issues may create a long list, but the film as a whole is a worthwhile addition to the genre.

2017.03.30

Poster for The Devil's Candy

The Devil's Candy

7.5

2017 | Horror

It is not quite the next big cult horror phenomenon, but it delivers enough style to make it worth seeking out.

2017.03.28

Poster for CHiPS

CHiPS

2.5

2017 | Action | Comedy | Crime

A childish attempt at 21 Jump Street success.

2017.03.25

Poster for Life

Life

8.3

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

An intelligently-penned film that combines Gravity and Alien. While not wholly original as a result, it sure still feels fresh.

2017.03.25

Poster for Power Rangers

Power Rangers

5.8

2017 | Adventure | Action | Science fiction

Aside from issues of style and storytelling, Power Rangers is still an entertaining experience.

2017.03.24

Poster for Fast & Furious

Fast & Furious

2.5

2009 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Crime

Instead of being bigger and better it is tired and slowed down by its unsatisfying moving parts.

2017.03.23

Poster for The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

6.7

2006 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Crime

The plot means just little enough and is just outlandish enough to become an unintentional guilty pleasure narrative.

2017.03.21

Poster for Lights Out

Lights Out

5.0

2016 | Horror | Suspense

Has some effectively tense set pieces. But the middle drags with stagnant scenes and burdening backstory.

2017.03.20

Poster for Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

6.7

2017 | Fantasy | Love

A perfectly acceptable remake.

2017.03.19

Poster for The Belko Experiment

The Belko Experiment

4.2

2016 | Horror | Action | Suspense

A strong premise—tired to those who know it—that is handled sloppily.

2017.03.16

Poster for 2 Fast 2 Furious

2 Fast 2 Furious

5.0

2003 | Action | Suspense | Crime

A step up on its predecessor when it comes to pacing and set piece excitement. But it also falls into the same pitfalls...

2017.03.13

Poster for Aliens

Aliens

8.3

1986 | Horror | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

James Cameron uses the Alien franchise platform to craft an exquisite action picture.

2017.03.12

Poster for Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island

3.3

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

A heavily flawed film with plenty of flair to hide its blemishes.

2017.03.09

Poster for The Fast and the Furious

The Fast and the Furious

4.2

2001 | Action | Suspense | Crime

Not nearly as compelling as the franchise strives to be in later years.

2017.03.06

Poster for Alien

Alien

10

1979 | Horror | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

The simple use of concealment and shadows create a film dripping at every turn with suspense and dread.

2017.03.04

Poster for Logan

Logan

8.3

2017 | Drama | Action | Science fiction

Has the unrestrained raw energy needed to make the X-Men universe interesting.

2017.03.02

Poster for Toni Erdmann

Toni Erdmann

7.5

2016 | Drama | Comedy

It is Huller and her character that shine, carrying this film to somewhere higher.

2017.02.25

Poster for A Cure for Wellness

A Cure for Wellness

6.7

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction | Mystery

A noble effort that is wonderful to look at, if there is enough else there to warrant looking for the entire length of the film.

2017.02.19

Poster for The Great Wall

The Great Wall

4.2

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

A messy script that lacks intrigue and narrative drive.

2017.02.19

Poster for I Am Not Your Negro

I Am Not Your Negro

10

2017 | Documentary

Marked by its poignancy and unfortunate temporal relevance.
