Poster for First Man

First Man

8

The experiential nature of the flight sequences is raw and glorious, and the climax is worth the wait.

Halloween

7

A great Halloween film. It feels like the heart of fall, when pumpkins glow and shadows make one take pause. At its best, the eerie mood pulls you in and makes you believe that it is October 31st...

Bad Times at the El Royale

6

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

Mandy

8

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

Poster for Venom

Venom

5

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

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

7

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

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

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

It is more harm than good.

Poster for Assassination Nation

Assassination Nation

8

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.

Poster for Lizzie

Lizzie

4

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

Poster for The House with a Clock in Its Walls

The House with a Clock in Its Walls

5

An entirely adequate horror-fantasy adventure for children.

Poster for The Wife

The Wife

8

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.

Poster for A Simple Favor

A Simple Favor

6

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.

Poster for The Predator

The Predator

4

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.

Poster for White Boy Rick

White Boy Rick

5

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.

Poster for The Party

The Party

7

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

Peppermint

5

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

Poster for The Nun

The Nun

Not entirely unwatchable, but entirely unremarkable.

Poster for Searching

Searching

8

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.

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

5

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

Poster for Operation Finale

Operation Finale

7

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