Poster for Unsane

Unsane

5.0

2018, Horror, Suspense

A B-movie plot wrapped up in these corporate tensions in a way that does not mesh.

2018.03.23

Poster for Thoroughbreds

Thoroughbreds

8.3

2018, Drama, Suspense

A tight little dark comedy with a lot to enjoy.

2018.03.13

Poster for Love, Simon

Love, Simon

7.5

2018, Drama, Comedy, Love

Maintains a lot of the conventions, awkward humor, and superficial plotting of its genre.

2018.03.11

Poster for Gringo

Gringo

3.3

2018, Action, Comedy, Crime

A haphazard mess, to put it plainly.

2018.03.10

Poster for The Strangers: Prey at Night

The Strangers: Prey at Night

4.2

2018, Horror, Suspense

When you simplify it that far, the entire movie becomes farcical.

2018.03.09

Poster for A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time

6.7

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Science fiction

Does not insult their intelligence, gives them a story with a positive message, and shows an earnest drive towards creativity and originality.

2018.03.09

Poster for Death Wish

Death Wish

4.2

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

The characters are surface-level, the plot is scattered and sparse, and the subject matter is ultimately thin.

2018.03.03

Poster for Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow

4.2

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Mystery

Dresses itself up as a sleek espionage thriller with gritty undertones, and never does anything worthwhile with that framework.

2018.03.03

Poster for Annihilation

Annihilation

6.7

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Science fiction, Mystery

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

2018.02.24

Poster for Game Night

Game Night

5.8

2018, Comedy, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

A dark comedy with a lot of clever writing embedded into it.

2018.02.23

Poster for The 15:17 to Paris

The 15:17 to Paris

4.2

2018, Drama, History, Suspense

Lacks a forward momentum that justifies the wait to the final sequence...

2018.02.10

Poster for Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed

2.5

2018, Drama, Love

Strictly in comparison to the other films, Fifty Shades Freed is a masterpiece. In comparison with any other film, it is an insult.

2018.02.10

Poster for The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox

4.2

2018, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction, Mystery

It is generically conventional and generally uninteresting. It is competently directed, for the most part...

2018.02.04

Poster for Winchester

Winchester

2.5

2018, Fantasy, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

The story that can be parsed from this conglomeration of tropes is not even worth a cursory glance.

2018.02.02

Poster for Leatherface

Leatherface

2.5

2017, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

A film littered with sadists...

2018.01.24

Poster for メアリと魔女の花

メアリと魔女の花

7.5

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Animation, Science fiction

A fantastical film with charm and visual verve.

2018.01.21

Poster for Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread

9.1

2017, Drama, Love

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.

2018.01.15

Poster for Paddington 2

Paddington 2

8.3

2017, Adventure, Animation, Comedy

Effectively balances heart and humor to create quality children’s entertainment.

2018.01.15

Poster for The Post

The Post

7.5

2018, Drama, History

Shows plenty of promise—certainly showing that Spielberg remains at the top of his form.

2018.01.14

Poster for The Commuter

The Commuter

4.2

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

The pieces don’t stack up to something worthy of a full-ticket price.

2018.01.12

Poster for I, Tonya

I, Tonya

9.1

2017, Drama

An astonishing film.

2018.01.06

Poster for Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name

9.1

2017, Drama, Love

May not be original or exciting from a narrative standpoint, but it is a beauty of a film to behold.
