Tosses a lot at the wall when it comes to its comedy, but the cast makes most of the material work.

Poster for Acrimony

Acrimony

3

A manic melodrama that flails around blindly for some sort of grasp on tone or subtext.

Ready Player One

4

An average science fiction adventure story that is overstuffed and relies on nods to better films and video games...

Pacific Rim: Uprising

4

Perhaps it will service whatever desire fans of the first film are looking for in a sequel, but it nevertheless fails to compel on its own merits.

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

A tight little dark comedy with a lot to enjoy.

A haphazard mess, to put it plainly.

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

A Wrinkle in Time

7

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

Poster for Death Wish

Death Wish

4

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

Poster for Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow

4

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

Annihilation

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

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

The 15:17 to Paris

4

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

Poster for Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed

3

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

Poster for The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox

4

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

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

Phantom Thread

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.

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

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

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