34% I Feel Pretty (2018) I Feel Pretty fumbles its message so badly that the end result is less inspiring than just plain baffling. At its worst, it does more to reinforce society's punishing beauty standards than dismantle them.‐ Mashable

82% Blockers (2018) Blockers feels empowering not because it tells a story of girls triumphing in a man's world, but because it shows us girls flourishing in their own world, on their own terms, surrounded by supportive friends and nice boys and well-meaning parents.‐ Mashable

95% A Quiet Place (2018) This may not be the deepest or most ambitious horror movie in recent memory -- there's not much here beyond that brilliantly simple core concept. But as a delivery vehicle for sheer, visceral terror, it's one of the most brutally effective.‐ Mashable

39% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle in Time is for all the girls - and boys, and non-binary kids, and teens and adults and the elderly - who've ever been a Meg. It's a flawed film that entreats us to love flawed things, up to and including our very own selves.‐ Mashable

13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Fifty Shades is a veritable orgy of ineptitude and unprofessionalism - which might not be a problem, except that the film also insists on showing everyone at work all the time. ‐ Mashable

96% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther perfects what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has always done so well: build a world so richly rendered, it's almost a letdown to reach the end of the film and realize it's time to return to our own reality.‐ Mashable

76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) While Jumanji isn't interactive in the way of actual video games, it does its best to simulate that feeling by getting you on the same page with the players at every turn.‐ Mashable

93% Thelma (2017) The supernatural Thelma is the coming-of-age experience in a nutshell: It's all about finding out who you are, with all the invigorating uncertainty and ambiguity that entails. ‐ Mashable

97% Coco (2017) What makes Coco rare is that it recognizes that the things that give your life meaning might be in opposition to one another, and asks you to consider what really matters most. ‐ Mashable

40% Justice League (2017) Perhaps the new Superman is closer to what the fans wanted. But he doesn't really feel like a character anymore. He, like the rest of his movie, feels like a focus group-approved concept.‐ Mashable

92% Stronger (2017) What makes Stronger so powerful, though, is that it's not interested in cheap, easy inspiration.‐ Mashable

55% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) The Lego Ninjago Movie comes down to a 'be yourself' message that's so half-hearted that, even as I'm typing this, I'm not entirely sure it was the message of the movie. ‐ Mashable

51% Downsizing (2017) As a filmmaker's ambitious attempt to wrestle with big, answerable questions, Downsizing is an interesting artifact. As an actual movie, though, it's an awkward misfire.‐ Mashable

28% Suburbicon (2017) What we don't need are more movies that treat black characters as props and backdrops for stories about white people, and black pain as entertainment and education for white people. ‐ Mashable

90% I, Tonya (2018) It's interested in subjective truths, in class differences, in our national self-image, and in our cultural obsession with scandal and celebrity.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
96% The Florida Project (2017) As Moonee, Brooklynn Prince is a revelation. There's not a single artificial note in her performance, just raw charm.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) The overall effect is kind of numbing, but from moment to moment it's the cinematic equivalent of a cotton candy sugar rush.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
92% The Shape of Water (2017) What results is a story that feels both fresh and timeless - and desperately needed, at a time when the world feels mean. Let's hope this one sticks around a while.‐ Mashable

85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Battle of the Sexes is so shrewd in other areas that it's hard to complain. What Battle of the Sexes understands is that this match looked entirely different depending on which side you were rooting for.‐ Mashable

85% Darkest Hour (2017) There's a living, breathing soul at underneath all that makeup, at the center of all those tics, and Oldman makes him fascinating to watch.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Professor Marston and the Wonder Women doesn't reinvent the biopic - but it expands our ideas about the kinds of stories that biopics can tell. ‐ Mashable

69% mother! (2017) Part of the fun is going into mother! knowing as little as possible so that you and your friends can argue afterwards about what it all means.‐ Mashable

85% It (2017) It is scary, yes -- but it's heartbreaking, too. And that, even more than the clown's nasty tricks, might be what lingers with you.‐ Mashable

16% The Dark Tower (2017) The thin characterizations might have been mitigated by livelier dialogue... But there's no poetry or personality in any of these words.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2017
98% The Big Sick (2017) Yes, The Big Sick is a comedy, but it's a comedy that offers up about a million reasons to cry.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Watts nails the timeless cornerstones of adolescence: the crippling anxiety mixed with brash confidence, the life-or-death dimensions of a crush, the impatience to grow up.‐ Mashable

16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) I can't remember the last time I felt so little while watching a movie. I wasn't even bored, so much as just dazed, like I'd woken up in someone else's dream.‐ Mashable

6/10 42% The Bad Batch (2017) If The Bad Batch is an ultimately pointless journey, at least it's one that takes us through some genuinely new territory -- one populated by bodybuilding cannibals and soundtracked by '90s-style boomboxes.‐ Slashfilm

65% Magic Mike XXL (2015) It's fun. Magic Mike XXL moves along at a brisk clip, leaning into all the absurdities of its premise and giggling all the way. It's the cinematic equivalent of an afternoon spent drinking beer on the beach. Everyone's having a good time.‐ Slashfilm

5/10 63% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Despite its stated obsession with all things "peculiar," there's little about this movie that is actually surprising. It comes across like a movie going through the motions of setting up a franchise, not a movie eager to bring you on a wild adventure.‐ Slashfilm

8/10 68% Free Fire (2017) The third-act shootout is a staple of a certain kind of film, but in Ben Wheatley's Free Fire it's essentially the entire movie. Against all odds, it works.‐ Slashfilm

8/10 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) The Birth of a Nation isn't an easy story to watch, but it's one that absolutely demands to be told.‐ Slashfilm

23% Zoolander 2 (2016) Far too much of the film feels a laundry list of references to the original.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
8/10 95% The Jungle Book (2016) A must-see spectacle.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
8/10 99% Under The Shadow (2016) The genius of Under the Shadow lies in the way it builds up the tension: slowly, almost imperceptibly at first, until I suddenly realized I was wound so tightly I wanted to scream.‐ Slashfilm

73% Black Mass (2015) Scott Cooper appears to have made Black Mass under the assumption that his work was half done the moment he jotted the words "Boston-set crime drama" on a notepad.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
80% Man Up (2015) Man Up is a classic romantic comedy about two people who are too old, too wise, too jaded for classic romantic comedies, and that's precisely why it works.‐ Slashfilm

6.5/10 44% American Reunion (2012) One thing that hasn't changed at all in the past decade is the series' trademark mix of raunchy humor and heart-on-sleeve sentiment, and American Reunion is every bit as delightfully disgusting and crass as any of these movies have ever been.‐ Slashfilm

31% Mojave (2016) As failures go, Mojave is a pretty interesting one. But it's a failure nonetheless.‐ Slashfilm

8/10 98% Columbus (2017) Columbus crept up on me so gradually and quietly that I don't even know when I started to love it. When it was over, though, I was left with a sweet aftertaste that stayed with me for hours.‐ Slashfilm

8/10 88% Other People (2016) There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, many of which are intermingled with sob-out-loud moments. It helps greatly that first-time director Chris Kelly maintains a low-key, naturalistic vibe throughout.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
32% Chappie (2015) The larger story is positively riddled with plot holes, and any sense of subtlety seems to have fallen right through them.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
59% Maggie (2015) Maggie could have been a rare treat... Instead, what we get is a genuinely new take that winds up feeling, somehow, like the same old stuff we've seen a million times before.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
86% Steve Jobs (2015) I know exactly who Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, is. Steve Jobs feels a revelation because it exposes Steve Jobs, the man.‐ Slashfilm

7/10 64% Dean (2017) It ends a sweeter, more meaningful film than it begins.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
6.5/10 52% The Belko Experiment (2017) The Belko Experiment isn't much more than a good time at the theater, but it isn't really trying to be and doesn't really have to be.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
8/10 39% The Yellow Birds (2017) Basically every war movie ever made takes pains to point out that war is hell, but the way The Yellow Birds presents that hell is interesting, precisely because it's not that interesting.‐ Slashfilm

8/10 97% Love & Friendship (2016) Though the corseted bodices and full skirts suggest an Oscar bait-y period drama, Stillman quickly establishes Love & Friendship as an out-and-out comedy.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
7/10 80% Colossal (2017) Vigalondo's strong vision, along with sensitive work by Hathaway and Sudeikis, ensures that Colossal never feels like anything other than completely itself.‐ Slashfilm

8/10 97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) It has all the makings of a new childhood classic: it's got wonder and adventure and loads of humor, and ultimately winds up on the side of optimism - but it also has moments of genuine tragedy and danger.‐ Slashfilm
