Poster for Missing Link

Missing Link

6

Missing Link is quite the visual feast, but its unremarkable narrative and characters (save for the charming Mr. Link) leave something to be desired.

Poster for The Head Hunter

The Head Hunter

6

Armed with a pulpy spirit and plenty of monster gore to go around, The Head Hunter makes for enjoyably gnarly fantasy horror B-movie entertainment.

Poster for Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary

6

Pet Sematary captures the bruality of King's source material, but its attempts to add shocking twists to the original narrative yield mixed results.

Poster for Us

Us

9

Us manages to be funny, freaky, and thrilling all at once, and marks another step forward in Peele's evolving sense of storytelling and craftsmanship.

Poster for Captive State

Captive State

4

Captive State makes an admirable attempt to buck genre conventions, but the resulting film is a muddled and otherwise incoherent sci-fi allegory.

Poster for Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn

Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn

6

Made in Abyss stumbles a little during its jump to the big screen, but its mythology remains as fascinating and bizarre as ever in Journey's Dawn.

Poster for Five Feet Apart

Five Feet Apart

5

Five Feet Apart is a well-acted YA romance and provides some welcome representation, but eventually finds itself bogged down in shlocky melodrama.

Poster for The Kid

The Kid

4

The Kid is a well-intentioned attempt to make a contemplative western, but ultimately mistakes gritty violence and broodiness for substance.

Poster for The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

6

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is respectfully restrained to a fault, but its earnest and authentic outlook provides the biopic with a beating heart.

Poster for Greta

Greta

5

Greta is far more silly than sinister, but is partially saved by Isabelle Huppert's gloriously theatrical performance as the film's titular character.

Poster for Fighting with My Family

Fighting with My Family

7

Fighting with My Family succeeds as a crowd-pleasing sports movie, thanks to its sharp wit and sincere apprecation for its working-class characters.

Poster for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

8

The Hidden World is an exhilarating and beautifully-crafted finale that brings the How to Train Your Dragon series to a stirring conclusion.

Poster for Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day 2U

7

Happy Death Day 2U adds a genre twist to the series' formula, delivering a sequel that's funnier, sillier, and more entertaining than the first movie.

Poster for The Prodigy

The Prodigy

5

The Prodigy is an often chilling and disturbing - if not particularly meaningful or impactful - horror movie weighed down its by derivative plot.

Poster for The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

6

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

Poster for High Flying Bird

High Flying Bird

7

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

6

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

5

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

Piercing

5

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

Poster for Serenity

Serenity

4

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

Poster for Glass

Glass

5

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

Replicas

4

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

5

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

4 january

Poster for Holmes & Watson

Holmes & Watson

3

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