Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale

5.8

2018, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

Takes an ambitious concept and spreads it thin over a 140-minute runtime.

2018.10.11

Poster for Mandy

Mandy

7.5

2018, Horror, Action, Suspense

As much as this might clash with its ethereal beginnings, both provide intriguing filmmaking from an authentic creative voice.

2018.10.10

Poster for Venom

Venom

5.0

2018, Action, Crime, Science fiction

The film hits a roadblock quickly. Instead of swerving around it, it rams straight into it.

2018.10.08

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

6.7

2018, Drama, Music, Love

It isn’t a platform from which a truly noteworthy movie can emerge.

2018.10.05

Poster for Blaze

Blaze

7.5

2018, Drama, Music, History

Dickey’s performance permeates life across every frame. And Blaze doesn’t require much more than that to be enthralling.

2018.10.04

Poster for Hell Fest

Hell Fest

3.3

2018, Horror

No one is interesting. Nothing is novel. 90 minutes pass by unimpeded by fear or intrigue.

2018.09.30

Poster for Fahrenheit 11/9

Fahrenheit 11/9

3.3

2018, Documentary

It is more harm than good.

2018.09.27

Poster for Assassination Nation

Assassination Nation

7.5

2018, Horror, Comedy, Suspense

The film is like Spring Breakers meets The Purge but with more on its mind. Yet its ultimate message does not live up to its lofty satiric ambitions.

2018.09.24

Poster for Lizzie

Lizzie

4.2

2018, Drama, Suspense, Crime

Armed with a well-known, inherently engaging story. But it doesn’t do much with it.

2018.09.22

Poster for The House with a Clock in Its Walls

The House with a Clock in Its Walls

5.0

2018, Fantasy, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

An entirely adequate horror-fantasy adventure for children.

2018.09.21

Poster for The Wife

The Wife

7.5

2018, Drama

It is sharply written and packed with tense emotions. When the film is not directly informed by Close’s performance, however, it quickly loses its way.

2018.09.16

Poster for A Simple Favor

A Simple Favor

5.8

2018, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

Not a good film, per se. In some instances, it is barely coherent. But it is an experience, one that kept me rapt until the very end.

2018.09.16

Poster for The Predator

The Predator

4.2

2018, Horror, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

More of a comedy than the sci-fi-horror-action hybrid that the franchise is known for. And most of this comedy is groan-worthy, at best.

2018.09.14

Poster for White Boy Rick

White Boy Rick

5.0

2018, Drama, Crime

Comes off as a derivative true crime film that has been filled to the brim with acting talent to hide the fact that the characters have no character to them.

2018.09.10

Poster for The Party

The Party

6.7

2017, Drama, Comedy

An intriguing comic design that yields some smirks, but in total it is a comedy of absurdist pretension with much more bark than bite.

2018.09.08

Poster for Peppermint

Peppermint

5.0

2018, Action, Suspense, Crime

It all reeks of a certain stock and trade, one in which the audience expects little enough that anything above mediocre will suffice.

2018.09.07

Poster for The Nun

The Nun

5.0

2018, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Not entirely unwatchable, but entirely unremarkable.

2018.09.06

Poster for Searching

Searching

7.5

2018, Drama, Suspense

A fascinating examination of modern day criminal detection.

2018.08.31

Poster for Kin

Kin

2.5

2018, Action, Science fiction

It is clear that, structurally, Kin is a disaster. What it does have going for it is fairly decent acting.

2018.08.31

Poster for Puzzle

Puzzle

5.8

2018, Drama

Puzzle is an insular drama with an interesting protagonist.

2018.08.29

Poster for How to Talk to Girls at Parties

How to Talk to Girls at Parties

5.0

2017, Music, Comedy, Science fiction, Love

Makes for an interesting concept ill-serviced by under-cooked plotting.

2018.08.29

Poster for Operation Finale

Operation Finale

6.7

2018, Drama, History, Suspense

The dramatic weight of the World War II subject matter has been more effectively weighty before.

2018.08.29

Poster for The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders

2.5

2018, Action, Comedy, Crime

Simply unfunny, The Happytime Murders has so little substance that it is hard to even discuss it.

2018.08.24

Poster for Mile 22

Mile 22

3.3

2018, Action

A grimy film with little to say for itself.
