Poster for Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies


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.

Poster for The Night Eats the World

The Night Eats the World


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

Poster for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again


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


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

Poster for Three Identical Strangers

Three Identical Strangers


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


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

Poster for Damsel



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

Poster for The First Purge

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.

Poster for Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Won't You Be My Neighbor?


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

Poster for Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Sicario: Day of the Soldado


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

Poster for Breath



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.

Poster for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom


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

Poster for American Animals

American Animals


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

Poster for SuperFly



It does have style, though, and something relevant to say.

Poster for Feral



Together, cast and director generate scares by relying less on imagination and more on your familiarity with the genre itself.

Poster for Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis


Pierce creates a moody tension inside the walls, exacerbated by the explosion of rage and violence outside.

Poster for On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach


A pretty film and a nice story, but never finds the depth to break your heart.

Poster for Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley


Fanning’s listless performance casts an awfully prim shadow. She’s surrounded by perfectly reasonable if somewhat anemic turns by her supporting cast.

Poster for Beast



The conflict, duality and self-discovery in Beast cannot help but draw you in, asking you about your own inner beast.

Poster for Upgrade



Whannell freshens up the technophobe dystopian narrative with a few fresh ideas, a silly streak and serious violence.

Poster for Let the Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In


Binoche’s generous performance as the self-sabotaging Isabelle embraces the insecurities, optimism and neediness that color the character’s quest.

Poster for How to Talk to Girls at Parties

How to Talk to Girls at Parties


It pretends a lot of things, sometimes very colorfully and often entertainingly, but without a raucous atonal tune to push it forward...

Poster for The Rider

The Rider


Because of the way Zhao plays with light, uses music, and fills the screen with the desolate beauty of the American plains, the film qualifies as a sleepy epic.
