Poster for Spies Like Us

Spies Like Us

6.7

Despite its comedic star appeal, Spies Like Us hasn’t gone down to be a classic 1980s comedy like so many others, though it is generally liked by audiences as a diversion more than as a comedy they fully embrace.

Poster for Joker

Joker

9.1

Joker succeeds at leaving a lasting and discomfiting impression of how a tragic life often can result in tragic outcomes for the person who experiences it, but also in those in his sphere of influence.

Poster for First Blood

First Blood

7.5

First Blood is recommendable for the parts that work well, including the underlying themes on the Vietnam vet experience even with the unevenness involved in the alternating focus between action and drama.

The Delta Force is mostly devoid of any attempts for intentional jokes...

Poster for Hustlers

Hustlers

7.5

While there is quite a bit of glitz and gloss to the depiction of their lives, they are flawed and human in a way that proves to be refreshingly interesting, especially in how they have to deal with men who frequent the clubs, ranging from complete Wall Street douchebags who think they can run the town to average joes who are interested in feeling the attention the women provide, even though they are only providing it as long as...

Poster for Brittany Runs a Marathon

Brittany Runs a Marathon

8.3

Colaizzo’s film is nicely cast, drawing out good dramatic scenes from a cast of improvisational comedians, including Lil Rey Howery as Brittany’s brother-in-law and sometimes mentor in life.

Poster for The Peanut Butter Falcon

The Peanut Butter Falcon

10

It’s gentle, kind, strong, resolved, and very, very likable. It treads the fine narrative line between the literal and the fantastic in a way that doesn’t break its spell, which is the sign of quality filmmakers, despite this being their first effort.

Poster for Good Boys

Good Boys

5

Picking its spots for R-rated material more efficiently to employ the shock jokes would have delivered much more than continuously delivering the same gag with different sex toys or vulgarities thinking the repetition would elevate snickers into guffaws, or guffaws into audiences rolling in the aisles.

Poster for Lifeforce

Lifeforce

7.5

More modern critics enjoy the risk-taking in the story as well as its commitment to the material, especially in how it tries to mesh the tone of the science fiction of yesteryear into the more contemporary notions of morbid sex and shocking violence that took hold in horror of the 1980s.

Poster for The Last Unicorn

The Last Unicorn

10

It’s a gentle and wistful tale that stands up for children to get in touch with inner emotions that other projects lack sufficient writing or studio bravery to engage.

Poster for Legend

Legend

5

It’s all so much costume work, make-up, lighting effects and sparkles, all waiting for a compelling story to inject them into — a story that doesn’t really make you care much about his it resolves, and thus, is a failure as a fairy tale worth relating in any form beyond witnessing the moody imagery on display.

Poster for Fright Night Part 2

Fright Night Part 2

2.5

Without a studio willing to back its product, and a director who had little interest in the source material Holland drew from to make the original Fright Night so fun, there wasn’t anyone who possessed enough faith in their own film to make this one a success.

Poster for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

7.5

Hobbs & Shaw is cartoonish, noisy, and utterly preposterous, but in a way that fans already expect going into it.

Poster for Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

8.3

As a gripping drama, it might be too much of a shaggy-dog story to proclaim the film one of Tarantino’s best, but as a pop-culture pastiche featuring solid performances and a handful of truly ingenious, provocative scenes, OUATIH shows why his legion of fans are willing to overlook the filmmaker’s self-gratification.

Poster for Fast Color

Fast Color

5.8

It is a bit of an oddity and not wholly successful as entertainment, but despite its small-scale, downbeat delivery, it offers something to mull over when it’s over.

Poster for Shaft

Shaft

6.7

Lovers of action-comedies, especially ones that explore jokes about the cultural divides and attitudes among various generations of men, will likely find enough laughs and decent action to sate their quest for entertainment in a modest fashion.

Poster for Near Dark

Near Dark

10

Horror junkies are probably already familiar, but for those who typically ignore that section of cinema, Near Dark proves worth going out of your comfort zone to experience.

Poster for Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home

7.5

Taken as a young adult romp in a superhero universe, it gets a passing grade for entertaining an audience that likely loves the superhero films but rarely can find one that will appeal directly to them on their level.

Poster for The Dead Don't Die

The Dead Don't Die

5.8

Jarmusch seems to be having fun tinkering with a new genre, but it’s also a kind of narrative there’s been no shortage of explorations into in recent years, leaving The Dead Don’t Die feeling like its lived beyond its need to exist.

Poster for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

6.7

Set design, cinematography, and stellar stunt work are the only aspects of this loopy and semi-comedic film I’d consider to be above average. Unfortunately, the overstuffed and sometimes non-intelligible story, scant characterizations, and plenty of spotty acting mar the movie.

Poster for Mad Max 2

Mad Max 2

It might be built on a thin comic book premise, but for all-out action movie fans, it doesn’t get much more thrilling and exhilarating than this.

Poster for I Am Mother

I Am Mother

8.3

I Am Mother pushes this question to the limit with an answer that is both thoughtfully philosophical and shockingly terrifying to consider.

Poster for Men in Black: International

Men in Black: International

5.8

Given the fact that this is a film series that literally could do anything or go anywhere in the universe in order to find new and interesting stories to tell, it’s a disappointment to see it go through most of the same motions we went through the first time around with this franchise.

Poster for Dark Phoenix

Dark Phoenix

5.8

All in all, there’s enough here to recommend for those fans who’ve stuck with the series this far, but it certainly isn’t the kind of film that will likely bring back those who’ve given up on the series since the departure of the original cast, and definitely isn’t going to gain new converts.
