Poster for All Eyez on Me

All Eyez on Me

4.2

2017, Drama, Music

In spite of a great performance from Gurira the film is too messy from a narrative standpoint to truly encapsulate the essence of Tupac Shakur.

Poster for Rough Night

Rough Night

6.7

2017, Drama, Comedy

But the film takes its chances. When these chances work, they work. When they don’t, at least the screenwriters go all out.

Poster for 47 Meters Down

47 Meters Down

2.5

2017, Adventure, Drama, Horror, Suspense

Offends the intelligence of its viewers with blank characters and obvious scripting.

Poster for Cars 3

Cars 3

5.8

2017, Adventure, Animation, Comedy

Occasional moments of situational humor work well, but these come off as exceptions more than anything else.

6.7

2017, Drama, War

The major narrative throughline is a strong and heartfelt story. Unfortunately, it is brought down by the numerous things surrounding it.

Poster for The Mummy

The Mummy

4.2

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Suspense

Somewhat competent cinematically, incompetent narratively.

Poster for It Comes at Night

It Comes at Night

9.1

2017, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Leaves you both empty-handed and wanting more.

2017.06.08

Poster for Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

7.5

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction, War

It’s no masterpiece, but its humor and competent narrative keep it from feeling like the haphazard messes that the two previous DC entries have been.

2017.06.02

Poster for Raw

Raw

9.1

2017, Drama, Horror

A furious implosion of the oppressed identity.

2017.06.01

Poster for The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts

7.5

2016, Drama, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

The narrative provides enough twists and turns to entertain a zombie enthusiast.

2017.05.31

Poster for The Lovers

The Lovers

6.8

2017, Comedy

Has an ambitious narrative diversion from the normal marriage plots. But the execution of this narrative is sloppy at best.

2017.05.31

Poster for War Machine

War Machine

5.0

2017, Drama, Comedy, War

As a straight drama about the plight of the soldier, it can only be seen in bright, effective glimpses.

2017.05.30

Poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

5.0

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Comedy

The swashbuckling story remains a distinctly Pirates one, but it is over-loaded and heavy, dragging pacing down in the progress.

2017.05.28

Poster for Baywatch

Baywatch

4.2

2017, Action, Comedy

It just doesn’t hold water...

2017.05.26

Poster for Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant

7.5

2017, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

The few jump scares don’t make up for a general lack of suspense in the film.

2017.05.16

Poster for Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

1.6

2007, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

Incoherence both visually and narratively denies the film from having any credibility.

2017.05.08

Poster for Alien Resurrection

Alien Resurrection

5.0

1997, Horror, Action, Science fiction

An odd, detached sequel to the Alien franchise.

2017.05.06

Poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

5.8

2017, Adventure, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

Overall, the writing is just too on the nose.

2017.05.04

Poster for The Circle

The Circle

5.8

2017, Drama, Suspense, Science fiction

It may not rise to the level of getting under the skin as it intends to, but it tows the line between satire and the dread of an earnest thriller well.

2017.04.28

Poster for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

5.0

2017, Fantasy, Drama, Action

Witty and humorous as it is, it suffers from its stylized pacing issues and uninspired use of source material.

2017.04.28

Poster for Alien³

Alien³

6.7

1992, Horror, Action, Science fiction

By no means is it the worse, but it was the first film in the series to show cracks in the otherwise full-proof high concept mold.

2017.04.25

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, Mystery

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.
