Poster for Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2

7.5

2018, Adventure, Animation, Action

A really good Pixar movie. It is a fairly good superhero movie. As a long-awaited follow up to The Incredibles, it doesn’t stack up as strongly.

Poster for Tag

Tag

5.8

2018, Comedy

A light, high concept comedy with a loose script and charismatic actors who are playfully working to hide the looseness.

2018.06.15

Poster for SuperFly

SuperFly

5.8

2018, Action, Suspense, Crime

The numerous issues with Superfly, surprisingly, do not take away from what makes the film compelling.

2018.06.13

Poster for First Reformed

First Reformed

9.1

2018, Drama, Suspense

Undoubtedly a film whose intensity and psychological weight are palpable, unshakable entities.

2018.06.10

Poster for Ocean's Eight

Ocean's Eight

5.8

2018, Action, Comedy, Suspense, Crime

The strong acting, the lavish costume design, the snappy editing. It all adds up. But it isn’t the well-oiled machine that it thinks it is.

Poster for Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis

7.5

2018, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

We get a great cast wielding an offbeat, close-quarters action story.

2018.06.08

Poster for Hereditary

Hereditary

8.3

2018, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Does a lot of stuff brilliantly.

2018.06.08

Poster for The Rider

The Rider

10

2018, Drama, Western

It isn’t style over substance, nor is it narrative over form. It is a seamless integration of great style and great narrative.

2018.06.03

Poster for Action Point

Action Point

4.2

2018, Comedy

The jokes run thin early. The plot is uninspired and fails hard when it decides to play the heartstrings.

2018.06.02

Poster for Upgrade

Upgrade

7.5

2018, Horror, Action, Comedy, Suspense, Science fiction

As much as the tone struggles to mesh, the core of Upgrade is jam-packed with entertainment value.

2018.06.01

Poster for Adrift

Adrift

6.7

2018, Adventure, Suspense, Love

A fine little survival picture retelling the story of an undoubtedly resourceful and determined person.

2018.06.01

Poster for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story

4.2

2018, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

It has the sense of being a dispassionate and inessential part of this ongoing Star Wars machine.

2018.05.25

Poster for Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451

4.2

2018, Drama, Science fiction

Strains to tap into contemporary technophobia, but it never grounds that in the source material that it borrows from.

2018.05.21

Poster for RBG

RBG

5.8

2018, Documentary

Unless you’re a critic who dislikes partisanship even when it lines up with his political views, you will likely either love it or hate it.

2018.05.20

Poster for Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2

7.5

2018, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

Overall the comedy here is fairly tight. In a cinematic landscape that is bombarded with superhero movies of various quality, Deadpool is the IP we need right now.

2018.05.18

Poster for Life of the Party

Life of the Party

4.2

2018, Comedy

Seeds are sown for characters to have genuine relationships with each other. These are largely abandoned, replaced with lackluster punchlines.

2018.05.17

Poster for Breaking In

Breaking In

4.2

2018, Suspense

A no frills thriller that isn’t ashamed of its lack of depth.

2018.05.11

Poster for Bad Samaritan

Bad Samaritan

5.0

2018, Drama, Suspense, Crime

There wasn’t enough juice in the premise to take the plot across the finish line.

2018.05.04

Poster for Overboard

Overboard

2.5

2018, Comedy, Love

It feels like a contrivance, because it is already a hard sell to buy the basic premise. Perhaps if the jokes were more powerful...

2018.05.04

Poster for The Endless

The Endless

7.5

2017, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

The revelation of the truth may not be as fun as the journey to it, but there is still a winding experience to enjoy.

2018.05.03

Poster for Lean on Pete

Lean on Pete

8.3

2018, Adventure, Drama

A determined case study of grit yielding to desperation. Its characters act like beautifully imperfect...

2018.05.03

Poster for Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

6.7

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction

Lives up to the hype if you enjoy the sheer bigness of the created universe...

2018.04.27

Poster for You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here

7.5

2017, Drama, Suspense, Crime

It’s all very stylish...

2018.04.23

Poster for Super Troopers 2

Super Troopers 2

4.2

2018, Comedy

Showing us comedic characters being driven past their potential.
