Poster for The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot


The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot spins a wobbly and idiosyncratic American myth held together by Elliott's quietly moving performance.

High Flying Bird


High Flying Bird doesn't quite manage to change the game but, under Soderbergh and McCraney's guidance, it certainly makes an entertaining go at it.

Poster for Dragon Ball Super: Broly

Dragon Ball Super: Broly


Dragon Ball Super: Broly's dense mythology isn't necessarily accessible to newcomers, but it delivers dazzling Saiyan action worthy of the big screen.

Poster for Velvet Buzzsaw

Velvet Buzzsaw


While it has a game cast and offers some fun twists on typical horror-thriller scenarios, Velvet Buzzsaw makes for a relatively hollow satire.

Poster for Piercing



A stylish exercise in retro horror-thriller filmmaking, but its stabs (no pun intended) at something deeper are mostly ineffective.

Poster for Serenity



Though its big ideas don't work, Serenity's narrative miscalculations result in some pretty entertaining - if completely unintentional - comedy.

Poster for Glass



Glass concludes Shyamalan's superhero movie trilogy in a manner that manages to be absorbing, frustrating, and bewildering at the same time.

Poster for Replicas



It has some promising elements, but on the whole Replicas is a campy sci-fi movie that's more likely to elicit unintended laughs than anything else.

Poster for Escape Room

Escape Room


An entertainingly cheesy and surprisingly innovative B-movie, but suffers when it turns its attention to setting up future sequels.

Poster for Holmes & Watson

Holmes & Watson


A lazy comedy that wastes a fun premise and talented cast on tired jokes, tasteless gags, and sometimes bafflingly outdated humor.

Poster for Destroyer



Powered by Kidman's fierce performance and Kusama's deliberate filmmaking, Destroyer makes for an effectively pulpy work of high-art storytelling.

Poster for Bird Box

Bird Box


A respectably moody and intelligent psychological thriller, if also a relatively muddled supernatural horror allegory.

Poster for Welcome to Marwen

Welcome to Marwen


An ambitious, but miscalculated and otherwise misguided attempt to blend effects-driven filmmaking with grounded storytelling.

Poster for Vice



Though it has the makings of a biting satire/biopic, Vice ends up feeling more like the rough draft of a better movie than a fully-realized vision.

Poster for Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines


Has some terrific world design and visuals, but its uninspired narrative and ungainly filmmaking make for a hollow viewing experience.

Poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns


A delightfully whimsical musical sequel that pays homage to its predecessor, yet by and large thrives on its own merits.

Poster for The Quake

The Quake


The Quake doesn't break the mold for natural disaster thrillers but, like The Wave, its humanist approach to the genre is refreshing and engaging.

Poster for If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk


Much like his previous films as a director, Jenkins' Beale Street adaptation is a richly layered and beautifully atmospheric work of cinematic poetry.

Poster for The Favourite

The Favourite


Armed with Lanthimos' trademark weirdness and three great lead performances, The Favourite is a truly unique spin on the typical royal court drama.

Poster for On the Basis of Sex

On the Basis of Sex


More compelling as a history lesson than a film, but makes for a relevant dramatization of Ginsburg's experiences all the same.

Poster for Creed II

Creed II


Meaningful and poignant continuation of the Creed/Rocky films, even though it doesn't scale the same artistic heights as its precursor.

Poster for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs


Certain segments are far more engaging than others, but overall The Ballad of Buster Scruggs makes for an intriguing piece of anthology storytelling.

Poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald


Has its moments of wonder and delight, but gets bogged down in its efforts to build out the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

Poster for Roma



Yet another impressive technical accomplishment for CuarĂ³n, Roma explores the filmmaker's memories of childhood in a truly immersive and vivid manner.
