95% Train to Busan (Bu-san-haeng) (2016) "Whatever your current stance on brain-eating, this is a keeper. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Jul 22, 2016
77% Lights Out (2016) "Contains more than enough flickeringly lit yelps to justify its existence. How many variations can be successfully run on the same gag? Quite a few, as it turns out. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jul 21, 2016
68% The Infiltrator (2016) "A solid, mid-level walk on the seedy side ... when you factor in a terrific-even-for-him lead performance by Bryan Cranston, however, it zooms up the ranks into something well worth leaving the couch for. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jul 13, 2016
77% The Shallows (2016) "Clocking in at a lean and mean 86 minutes, it takes its deliberately simple premise and comes close to knocking the damn cover off of it. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Jun 23, 2016
80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "This is a movie where virtually every scene is designed expressly for the purpose of causing the viewer's colon to have an out-of-body experience. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jun 8, 2016
39% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) "Much better than the last one, with a firmer handle on what makes this stuff appeal to kids and enough off-kilter elements to keep parents at least semiconscious throughout. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Jun 3, 2016
No Score Yet The Night Stalker "Writer/director Megan Griffiths successfully captures the burbling hysteria of mid-'80s California, when every open window and slow-moving car carried a horrific potential energy. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Jun 3, 2016
57% Money Monster (2016) "A satire about television that feels like it was made by the kind of people who claim they don't even watch TV. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted May 12, 2016
17% Ratchet & Clank (2016) "Keeps the basic charm of the source material, fitting snugly in the tier of movies for kids located somewhere just below Pixar. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Apr 29, 2016
91% Green Room (2016) "Gathers up [Blue Ruin's] earlier promise and just goes sick with it, taking an intentionally stripped-down premise and jacking it up to ferocious speeds. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Apr 20, 2016
83% Midnight Special (2016) "Nichols' built-for-speed tribute to Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter does his influences proud, while also suggesting he's still expanding his horizons. Right now, he's as good as we've got. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 30, 2016
90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "Takes an instantly fraught premise and never stops stripping the screws. Within its narrow self-imposed parameters, it's just about perfect. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 10, 2016
26% London Has Fallen (2016) "Jingoistic enough to make the members of Team America stumble towards the woodchipper in disbelief. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 3, 2016
91% The Witch (2016) " By the final enigmatic scene, a sustained state of magic terror has been achieved that more than justifies the acres of hype. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Feb 17, 2016
84% Deadpool (2016) "A terrifically faithful adaptation of some awfully obnoxious source material. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Feb 10, 2016
80% Ip Man 3 (2016) "A bit pokey at times, with Yen struggling to keep the historical sereneness of his character interesting ... When the throwdowns do occur, though, Oh Holy Mother of God. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jan 20, 2016
3/4 10% The Forest (2016) "A good setting can do wonders for a genre film, and director Jason Zada has landed a beaut here. " ‐ Salt Lake City Weekly
Posted Jan 8, 2016
82% The Revenant (2015) "The sheer mad bravura on display makes it impossible to dismiss. After all, how many times do you get to see someone attempt to best Malick and Herzog and Apocalypse-era Coppola with one go? " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Jan 5, 2016
80% Macbeth (2015) "While the Big Scenes are rendered with a ravishing starkness, the connective tissue that's allowed to remain tends to fall away into a low-toned dirge. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Dec 9, 2015
24% Victor Frankenstein (2015) "It spends so much time winking at the audience that it's amazing the camera stayed in focus. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Nov 25, 2015
34% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "While the talented cast occasionally gets a screwball, smiling-dagger rhythm going, the narrative's insistence on staying on point certainly could have benefited from some of Green's old what the hell wobbliness. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Oct 28, 2015
2.5/4 16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) "Yes, it's as preposterous as it sounds -- possibly even more so -- but the rampant hooey is kept stylish and relatively fleet-footed by director Breck Eisner. " ‐ Salt Lake City Weekly
Posted Oct 23, 2015
91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "A deliberately old-fashioned hybrid of courtroom drama and Cold War skullduggery that's so expertly put together that you may not realize the beauty of its construction until after the fact. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Oct 14, 2015
75% Black Mass (2015) "[Depp] festoons himself with bad teeth, an elfin nose, and malamute eyes with fascinatingly grotesque results. What's new, however, is that he doesn't seem content with just pleasing himself this time. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Sep 16, 2015
8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) "When your movie is about a guy who can take out an entire room of thugs without breaking stride, it sure would be nice to actually see it. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Aug 20, 2015
9% Fantastic Four (2015) "This is a movie where a superhero famed for his amazing powers of elasticity can be choked out like a henchman in a Swayze flick. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Aug 6, 2015
97% Tangerine (2015) "Conjures up a world where an illegal business transaction in a carwash can somehow come off as silly, raw, and touching all at once. After the credits roll, the dizzy crackle remains. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jul 15, 2015
25% Terminator Genisys (2015) "Comes off as serviceable at best and officially sanctioned fan wankery at worst. In trying to freshen up the ingredients for a new generation, it just clunks up the batter. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jul 1, 2015
31% Poltergeist (2015) "Offers enough tweaks to the source material to justify its existence. Besides, even if you already believe clown dolls should be expunged from the earth, a little more confirmation can't hurt. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted May 22, 2015
73% Time Lapse (2015) "A nifty little cross between Primer and Shallow Grave, with a central MacGuffin that manages to maintain its plausibility until the credits roll. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted May 11, 2015
75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "Yes, comic-book movies are crowding out everything else, are the eventual heat death of cinema, and so forth. But, man, there's just so much neat stuff here. Boom. Kapow. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Apr 30, 2015
88% Backcountry (2015) "Successfully scratches that primal itch, with some genuinely tense results. Uncomplicated isn't always a bad thing. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Apr 15, 2015
84% While We're Young (2015) "Makes for a fantastically entertaining character study, even if you'd flee from these characters on the street. Look at these hipsters. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Apr 8, 2015
97% It Follows (2015) "One of those rare scary machines where everything just clicks together, with a ferociously single-minded rightness that keeps the nerves in a state of high, perpetual thrum. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 25, 2015
60% Run All Night (2015) "Deserves a healthy measure of respect for unearthing a rich, world-weary vein of noir fatalism. It'd punch you if it could. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 12, 2015
96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) "Expertly paced, consistently inventive, and exceedingly good natured. Especially when the splatter is hitting the rafters. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 7, 2015
41% Tusk (2014) "An initially creepy slice of body horror that repeatedly fritters away its mounting bad vibes through shoe-horned flashbacks and lengthy improv digressions. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Sep 18, 2014
65% A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) "Nails the mournful cynicism of the source material. If the sight of a man in a trenchcoat doggedly chasing down leads dings your particular pleasure centers, get to the theater as soon as you can. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Sep 18, 2014
28% 3 Days To Kill (2014) "Takes Luc Besson's two favorite subjects and merrily glomps them together, along with, well, whatever may have passed by his window during the creative process. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Feb 21, 2014
73% Pieta (2013) "Ki-duk's having his cake, and chewing it with his mouth open, too. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted May 30, 2013
85% Upstream Color (2013) "Whatever it is Carruth's doing, it reminds you of what movies can do. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Apr 17, 2013
76% Kill List (2012) "‎While it's screaming in your face, it's also quietly creeping up behind you. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 1, 2012
79% The Grey (2012) "That isn't rain outside, it's Chuck Bronson and Lee Marvin drooling in heaven. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jan 26, 2012
10% Trespass (2011) "I never thought I'd say this about a Joel Schumacher project, but this thing could use some neon. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Oct 14, 2011
6% Dream House (2011) "Seems actively designed to ward off any bad vibes. If this story was told around a campfire, s'mores would be thrown. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Sep 30, 2011
80% I Saw the Devil (2011) "This cautionary tale about the dangers of staring into the abyss roars so gloppily far over the top that it ultimately deadens the nerves. Which is most likely the point, I realize, but sheesh. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Mar 17, 2011
67% The Company Men (2011) "As broad and unsurprising as The Company Men is, the filmmaker has put his finger on something frightening about the current state of the union, even if he can't quite diagnose it in the time allotted. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Jan 22, 2011
67% The Company Men (2011) "As broad and unsurprising as The Company Men is, the filmmaker has put his finger on something frightening about the current state of the union, even if he can't quite diagnose it in the time allotted. " ‐ Portland Mercury
Posted Jan 22, 2011
89% Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010) "A spooky, funny, weirdly heartwarming fable that -- were it not for the glimpses of non-CGIed geriatric bits -- might actually be suitable for kids of all ages. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Posted Dec 10, 2010
29% The Warrior's Way (2010) "Aided by a wonderfully ersatz spaghetti western score, Lee's cranked-to-11 curio is a shameless, sharply written (secondary villain Danny Huston gets an exit line for the ages), thankfully unironic chunk of fun. " ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
