It just doesn’t hold water...

Alien: Covenant

8

The few jump scares don’t make up for a general lack of suspense in the film.

Poster for Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

2

Incoherence both visually and narratively denies the film from having any credibility.

Poster for Alien Resurrection

Alien Resurrection

5

An odd, detached sequel to the Alien franchise.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

6

Overall, the writing is just too on the nose.

Poster for The Circle

The Circle

6

It may not rise to the level of getting under the skin as it intends to, but it tows the line between satire and the dread of an earnest thriller well.

Poster for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

5

Witty and humorous as it is, it suffers from its stylized pacing issues and uninspired use of source material.

Poster for Alien³

Alien³

7

By no means is it the worse, but it was the first film in the series to show cracks in the otherwise full-proof high concept mold.

Poster for Phoenix Forgotten

Phoenix Forgotten

3

It doesn’t help any that none of the characters we are introduced to have any discernible voice or characterization.

Poster for Free Fire

Free Fire

7

Unabashed popcorn-crunching entertainment.

Poster for Sandy Wexler

3

Without narrative cohesion and pacing, the film trickles by with only a handful of laughs to be had.

2017.04.16

2017

Poster for The Fate of the Furious

The Fate of the Furious

7

The flashy direction and snappy editing does not make up for the lack of engrossing action in the long-term.

Poster for The Discovery

The Discovery

4

This ambition is wasted on a final product that doesn’t allow its thought-provoking questions to spell out a similarly fascinating story.

2017.04.11

2017

Poster for Furious 7

Furious 7

10

Loud noises and people in cars doing things that would get normal people killed.

2017

Poster for Fast & Furious 6

Fast & Furious 6

8

A mindless action romp that has both a competent director and enough money behind it to make this action genuinely entertaining...

2017.04.08

2017

Poster for Going in Style

Going in Style

5

The flashy style of rapidly edited heist sequences and meandering split screens doesn’t add much beyond flair.

2017.04.07

2017

Poster for Golden Exits

Golden Exits

6

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

2017

Poster for Fast Five

Fast Five

9

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

2017.04.07

2017

Poster for Infinity Baby

Infinity Baby

9

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

2017

Poster for Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell

7

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

2017.03.31

2017

Poster for The Dark Tapes

The Dark Tapes

7

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

2017

Poster for The Devil's Candy

The Devil's Candy

8

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

2017.03.28

2017

Poster for CHiPS

CHiPS

3

A childish attempt at 21 Jump Street success.

2017.03.25

2017

Poster for Life

Life

8

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