A tonally pitch perfect comedy...

An entertaining and lively entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A woven artifice of suspense-devoid “twists” and “turns”...

The humor is humorous. The emotional moments pull at the heartstrings.

Win It All

7

A light dramedy with a lot of weight behind its characters.

Poster for The Beguiled

The Beguiled

8

Attractive to look at, so much so that it becomes hard to see the film for its narrative.

You may laugh once or twice, but the film itself is doomed to a future of cable airplay and obscurity.

Poster for Baby Driver

Baby Driver

9

Each frame and sonic moment provides the viewer a new morsel from which entertainment can be gleaned.

Poster for The Bad Batch

The Bad Batch

6

Still indicative of Amirpour’s keen eye and unique form of genre hybridity but lacking the focus and power of her first work.

Poster for Transformers: The Last Knight

Transformers: The Last Knight

3

The comedy is crass and brash to no payoff, the characters fade in and out as necessary with little depth, and the story pushes on for 40 minutes too long...

Poster for Colossal

Colossal

8

The overall themes of the film do not play out as strongly as the isolated moments.

Poster for All Eyez on Me

All Eyez on Me

4

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

7

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

3

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

Poster for Cars 3

Cars 3

6

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

7

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

Somewhat competent cinematically, incompetent narratively.

Poster for It Comes at Night

It Comes at Night

9

Leaves you both empty-handed and wanting more.

Poster for Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

8

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.

Poster for Raw

Raw

9

A furious implosion of the oppressed identity.

Poster for The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts

8

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

2017.05.31

2017

Poster for The Lovers

The Lovers

7

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

2017.05.31

2017

Poster for War Machine

War Machine

5

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

2017.05.30

2017

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

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

5

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