Poster for mother!

mother!

5.8

2017, Drama, Horror, Mystery

Opens as a psychological thriller, middles as a farce, and closes as an exploitation film...

2017.09.15

Poster for Kodachrome

Kodachrome

5.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

As much as the performances help to elevate the film, there is nothing revelatory about what is depicted.

Poster for Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!

Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!

4.2

2017

The ethics of Spurlock’s new doc are muddy.

2017.09.14

Poster for It

It

6.7

2017, Drama, Horror, Suspense

Has an intense mainstream appeal, in that it is adherent enough to convention while still providing visual symbols that feel new.

Poster for Valley of Shadows

Valley of Shadows

6.7

2017, Drama, Horror, Mystery

Just needed more wrinkles in its plot to deliver the experience that it intends to.

2017.09.11

Poster for Mom and Dad

Mom and Dad

6.7

2018, Horror, Comedy, Suspense

Disturbing, crude, and humorous, this gory flick is vying to become a new staple of midnight movie rotations.

2017.09.10

Poster for Little Evil

Little Evil

5.8

2017, Horror, Comedy

A surprising amount of mileage that the film makes out of the simplicity of its comedic premise...

2017.09.04

Poster for Death Note

Death Note

2.5

2017, Fantasy, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Feels primed to appeal to nobody.

2017.09.04

Poster for Patti Cake$

Patti Cake$

4.2

2017, Drama

Wrapped up in energetic music, but that is not enough to put a veil over the flatness of the film.

2017.09.02

Poster for Good Time

Good Time

7.5

2017, Drama, Suspense, Crime

An exhilarating ride through a debauched unseen world...

2017.08.25

Poster for Birth of the Dragon

Birth of the Dragon

3.3

2017, Drama, Action

Marred by nearly innumerable shortcomings, all of which combine into a conventional mess of a film.

2017.08.25

Poster for Brigsby Bear

Brigsby Bear

8.3

2017, Drama, Comedy

Absurd and funny, sweet and earnest, and endlessly riding an undercurrent wave of darkness.

2017.08.22

Poster for The Hitman's Bodyguard

The Hitman's Bodyguard

5.0

2017, Action, Comedy

Fails to be either an original action film nor a satisfactory all-around comedy, it has its moments where both genres can shine...

2017.08.21

Poster for Lemon

Lemon

4.2

2017, Drama, Comedy

Purposefully confounding. It does not want to be accessible.

2017.08.21

Poster for Logan Lucky

Logan Lucky

7.5

2017, Drama, Action, Comedy, Crime

Soderbergh remains at the top of his game. His vision controls this whimsically haphazard narrative with artistic precision.

2017.08.19

Poster for The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle

4.2

2017, Drama

More contrived than it is emotionally affecting, making poor work out of its source material.

2017.08.13

Poster for Girls Trip

Girls Trip

5.8

2017, Comedy

Starts off moving toward a successful end, then gets blocked by some sour gag or cliche narrative beat.

2017.08.10

Poster for Detroit

Detroit

8.3

2017, Drama, History, Suspense, Crime

The performances and visual presence of its director keep the film from slacking on pace or cinematics.

2017.08.06

Poster for The Dark Tower

The Dark Tower

4.2

2017, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Western, Science fiction

Uninspired: the setting, the score, the story, and the climax.

2017.08.03

Poster for Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

5.8

2017, Action, Suspense, Mystery

Denies us access to its protagonist and weaves a story that actively hides what is most interesting.

2017.07.29

Poster for The Emoji Movie

The Emoji Movie

0.0

2017, Animation, Comedy

A gaudy neon mess of epically tone deaf proportions, and there is no use wasting any more time discussing it.

2017.07.28

Poster for Dunkirk

Dunkirk

9.1

2017, Drama, Action, History, Suspense, War

With an epic scale on a tight runtime, Dunkirk is efficient storytelling at its finest.

2017.07.23

Poster for Kuso

Kuso

6.7

2017, Horror

Grotesque to the nth degree.

2017.07.21

Poster for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

4.2

2017, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

Vibrant and bright, throwing science fiction imagery in our faces until the cows come home. But it could use more than that.
