Poster for Phoenix Forgotten

Phoenix Forgotten

2.5

2017, Horror, Science fiction, Mystery

It doesn’t help any that none of the characters we are introduced to have any discernible voice or characterization.

2017.04.21

Poster for Free Fire

Free Fire

6.7

2017, Action, Comedy, Suspense, Crime

Unabashed popcorn-crunching entertainment.

2017.04.20

Poster for Sandy Wexler

Sandy Wexler

3.3

2017, Comedy

Without narrative cohesion and pacing, the film trickles by with only a handful of laughs to be had.

2017.04.16

Poster for The Fate of the Furious

The Fate of the Furious

6.7

2017, Adventure, Action, Suspense, Crime

The flashy direction and snappy editing does not make up for the lack of engrossing action in the long-term.

2017.04.12

Poster for The Discovery

The Discovery

4.2

2017, Drama, Suspense, Science fiction, Love

This ambition is wasted on a final product that doesn’t allow its thought-provoking questions to spell out a similarly fascinating story.

2017.04.11

Poster for Furious 7

Furious 7

10

2015, Action, Suspense, Crime

Loud noises and people in cars doing things that would get normal people killed.

2017.04.10

Poster for Fast & Furious 6

Fast & Furious 6

7.5

2013, Action, Suspense, Crime

A mindless action romp that has both a competent director and enough money behind it to make this action genuinely entertaining...

2017.04.08

Poster for Going in Style

Going in Style

5.0

2017, Drama, Comedy, Crime

The flashy style of rapidly edited heist sequences and meandering split screens doesn’t add much beyond flair.

2017.04.07

Poster for Golden Exits

Golden Exits

5.8

2018, Drama

It is intriguing and written with energy, but it leads the audience in a linear path to a meaning that would otherwise have a satisfying amount of ambiguity.

2017.04.07

Poster for Fast Five

Fast Five

9.1

2011, Action, Suspense, Crime

It transcends rational thinking. It is enjoyable for its blatant, inherent flaws. It’s just damn good.

2017.04.07

Poster for Infinity Baby

Infinity Baby

9.1

2017, Comedy

Has a lot to offer in its short runtime in the way of cinematic energy and narrative depth. And it’s also just funny.

2017.04.05

Poster for Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell

6.7

2017, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

Utilizes strong visual effects technology to justify its live action redux.

2017.03.31

Poster for The Dark Tapes

The Dark Tapes

6.7

2017, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

The film isn’t perfect, and adding up the minor issues may create a long list, but the film as a whole is a worthwhile addition to the genre.

2017.03.30

Poster for The Devil's Candy

The Devil's Candy

7.5

2017, Horror

It is not quite the next big cult horror phenomenon, but it delivers enough style to make it worth seeking out.

2017.03.28

Poster for CHiPS

CHiPS

2.5

2017, Action, Comedy, Crime

A childish attempt at 21 Jump Street success.

2017.03.25

Poster for Life

Life

8.3

2017, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

An intelligently-penned film that combines Gravity and Alien. While not wholly original as a result, it sure still feels fresh.

2017.03.25

Poster for Power Rangers

Power Rangers

5.8

2017, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

Aside from issues of style and storytelling, Power Rangers is still an entertaining experience.

2017.03.24

Poster for Fast & Furious

Fast & Furious

2.5

2009, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

Instead of being bigger and better it is tired and slowed down by its unsatisfying moving parts.

2017.03.23

Poster for The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

6.7

2006, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

The plot means just little enough and is just outlandish enough to become an unintentional guilty pleasure narrative.

2017.03.21

Poster for Lights Out

Lights Out

5.0

2016, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Has some effectively tense set pieces. But the middle drags with stagnant scenes and burdening backstory.

2017.03.20

Poster for Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

6.7

2017, Fantasy, Love

A perfectly acceptable remake.

2017.03.19

Poster for The Belko Experiment

The Belko Experiment

4.2

2016, Horror, Action, Suspense

A strong premise—tired to those who know it—that is handled sloppily.

2017.03.16

Poster for 2 Fast 2 Furious

2 Fast 2 Furious

5.0

2003, Action, Suspense, Crime

A step up on its predecessor when it comes to pacing and set piece excitement. But it also falls into the same pitfalls...

2017.03.13

Poster for Aliens

Aliens

8.3

1986, Horror, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

James Cameron uses the Alien franchise platform to craft an exquisite action picture.
