Poster for Annihilation

Annihilation

The conundrum is how to reconcile the poor narrative construction and the sublime technical craft at work here.

Poster for Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed

2.5

From the acting, to the direction, to the camera work, to the costumes, to the sets, to the sound design, to the music, the film is first-rate.

2018.01.20

Poster for 12 Strong

12 Strong

5.8

2018, Drama, History, War

When the film isn’t over-compensating with its action, it serves up drama pretty well.

2018.01.19

Poster for Proud Mary

Proud Mary

5.0

2018, Action, Suspense, Crime

There is enough here in the performances and central relationship (and short runtime) that keep the film from being entirely tired.

2017.12.29

Poster for Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour

6.7

2017, Drama, History

Gary Oldman is the best Churchill the casting director could have asked for, but he alone isn’t going to make the film a masterpiece.

Poster for All the Money in the World

All the Money in the World

5.8

By the end of the film, none of it feels particularly impactful.
