Poster for The Party

The Party


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

Poster for Peppermint



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

The Nun


Not entirely unwatchable, but entirely unremarkable.

Poster for Searching



A fascinating examination of modern day criminal detection.

Poster for Kin



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

Poster for Puzzle



Puzzle is an insular drama with an interesting protagonist.

Poster for How to Talk to Girls at Parties

How to Talk to Girls at Parties


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

Poster for Operation Finale

Operation Finale


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

Poster for The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders


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

Poster for Mile 22

Mile 22


A grimy film with little to say for itself.

Poster for Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians


A character-driven romantic film that leans into tropes without falling victim to them.

Poster for The Meg

The Meg


The humor isn’t funny, and, when it comes down to it, the film wants to be Jaws.

Poster for Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot

Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot


We are somersaulting toward a resolution that fails to cash in on the immersive storytelling that came before.

Poster for The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me


It just fails to strike a balance, and, as such, the comedy often does not land.

Poster for Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin


The fuzzy characters doing and saying big-hearted things is all well and good, but it does not remedy the glaring issues in the plot and its messaging.

Poster for The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds


There are blockbuster-level action set pieces. Between these sequences, though, the film reads much more flat...

Poster for Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade


This is such a simple concept, but Eighth Grade illustrates it with profoundly elegant precision.

Poster for Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies


A scrappy, heart-in-its-hand animated film.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


No flab, all action, and unapologetic about it.

Poster for Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You


With this film, he might just be saying too much at once. But too many good things is better than none at all.

Poster for The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2


It is a sequence like that one that shows us glimpses of The Equalizer, which is easily a more thrilling low-key action film.

Poster for Unfriended: Dark Web

Unfriended: Dark Web


The plot of the film is a silly game of smoke and mirrors, leading us down a path and then attempting to pull the rug out from under us.

Poster for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again


Beyond the occasional fun acting performance, though, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is a lacking experience.

Poster for Skyscraper



Two to three set pieces use the eponymous building to good effect. Otherwise, it is an empty action experience without character, wit, or intelligence.
