Baywatch

6.0

2017 | Action | Comedy

The gumshoe plot and increasingly terrible CGI effects unravel the film in a hurry after a breezy first half, but enough enjoyment is still easy to rescue.

Scott has assembled a top-shelf collection of artistic talent to expand upon the hellishly stunning level of designs and atmospheric creations from Prometheus.

Dances with the analogies and symbolism to be found from eggs and aging to expiration in a uniquely literal and entirely charming way.

2017.05.04

The Circle

6.0

2017 | Drama | Suspense | Science fiction

As preposterous as it really is, the intriguing topical parallels from Dave Eggers’s source novel are appealingly fascinating.

2017.04.28

Sand Castle

4.0

2017 | Drama | War

Feels ten years too late to make any resounding statement.

2017.04.26

The Sex Addict

4.0

The humor is naturally vulgar and dark, which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

Your jaw will never drop in any of those directions and you’ll only be moved to check your watch repeatedly.

Free Fire

6.0

2017 | Action | Comedy | Suspense | Crime

Acidic with its dark humor and dialogue and stylishly appointed even when dirty and bloody...

2017.04.20

Mine

4.0

The flaws come from the film’s effusive route of philosophy...

2017.04.14

Peculiarity rules over spectacle with minimal loss of entertainment.

Has a point and makes it while still traversing humanity’s natural waters with its innate penchant for improvisation.

2017.04.10

Gifted

6.0

2017 | Drama

The importance was the stance of its message, and Webb kept it on point, earned the dramatic heft, and avoided full-on preaching.

2017.04.07

February

8.0

2015 | Horror | Suspense

Carries a nearly strict reliance on suggestion and atmosphere over exploitation.

2017.03.28

Life

4.0

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

The rest of the cast tune themselves to ultra-serious and sap away any possible zeal.

T2 Trainspotting

In stirringly entertaining fashion, each actor finds a way to surprise us with flashes of maturity, gumption, profundity, sentiment, and even flat-out heart.

2017.03.23

Lift

6.0

Plays to an almost self-aware level, which is fun. To the film’s credit, those results are occasionally uneven, yet never fully predictable.

2017.03.18

2017 | Fantasy | Love

Watson is courageous and just fine with her heroine work.

2017.03.15

Kong: Skull Island

Dispenses with myth and lore and jumps to the mashing and clashing we all dreamt about since slamming plastic toys together as kids.

2017.03.08

Get Out

8.0

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Mystery

The totality of the scope, suspense, misdirection, and thrills make it an outstanding original success and raucous big-screen experience.

2017.03.07

Logan

10

2017 | Drama | Action | Science fiction

Might just be the most mature and reflective comic book film of this era.

2017.02.20

The Great Wall

6.0

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

The real cause of derailment will be its ridiculousness, no matter how beautiful it is.
