Poster for White Boy Rick

White Boy Rick

7

It’s too bad, because as a showcase for performances, White Boy Rick excels. It just can’t entirely decide what it wants to accomplish with its story.

What you’ll remember is Close, delivering, as is her way, a tour de force performance that may finally land Close her own glittering acknowledgment.

With a slight, sometimes silly storyline and an awful lot of atmosphere, Hardy manages an entertaining if forgettable 90 minutes.

The film is much more than that. And also much less.

It’s unfortunate because there is an awful lot of talent and aesthetic going to waste here.

Poster for The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders

The film is raunchy. It amounts to 90 minutes of profane, DNA-spewing nastiness with very little story to redeem it. I’m pretty sure that’s the point.

More than anything, Slender Man is just boring. And he shouldn’t be.

Yes, there are laugh out loud moments in this film, but there are far more rallying cries.

Is nowhere near as awful as the trailer made it out to be.

Burnham’s as keen to the strangulating social anxieties of middle school as he is to the shape-shifting effects of technology.

Poster for Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

4

There are laughs—some of them tossed with a surprisingly flippant sense of the morbid—and energy galore, but it’s all a kind of sugar rush.

Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot

So much of the film goes very, very right—thanks in large part to another award-worthy performance by Phoenix.

Several of the twists in the storyline are a bit stale. Rarely is a zombie film this introspective or a horror hero this thoughtful.

Your best bet is to abandon yourself to the sheer ridiculousness of it. There is literally no other way to enjoy it.

Poster for Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You

8

Bursting with thoughts, images and ideas, the film never feels like it wanders into tangents.

Poster for Three Identical Strangers

Three Identical Strangers

7

Constantly revealing a new piece of information, a new source and more complications, the investigation itself becomes as much a character in the film as the triplets.

Poster for The Devil's Doorway

The Devil's Doorway

6

Started out with promise, but like so many lapsed Catholics, it lost its way.

Poster for Damsel

Damsel

7

The film’s deceptively whimsical comedy offers a biting criticism of traditional, romantically-masculine storytelling.

The First Purge

DeMonaco pulls nightmares from reality and pastes them together in a world that’s almost more comforting in that it’s supposed to be fantasy.

It’s tough to make it through the film’s 94 minutes without tearing up...

Stefano Sollima serves up a fine, edgy piece of action for the summer. It’s just that I’d hoped for more.

Even the way Baker captures the water evokes the idea of imperfection and wonder, unlike those crystal blue, foaming tubes we’ve become used to.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

5

Though he does not shy away from showing human carnage, there is not a fresh or compelling set piece in the film.

The problem with the film is the problem with the heist itself: it was fun while it lasted, but was there really a purpose?
