Movie Reviews Only

T-Meter Title | Year
67% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) It's a retread in the worst way, outright repeating gags, situations and development in an attempt to capture the highlights from the previous (much more entertaining) film. - CBR EDIT

100% Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus (2019) Throughout the movie, small character beats are given plenty of emotion... while the grander scenes of the Irken Empire and trips through space stand out from a visual perspective. The movie looks great. - CBR EDIT

77% Frozen II (2019) It not only feels original from anything else Disney has released in recent years, and even stands above the previous Frozen as one of the studio's most interesting and compelling films. - CBR EDIT

52% Charlie's Angels (2019) The movie is at its best when Banks stops trying to make the Angels seem cool and just allows them to be cool. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2019
65% Lady and the Tramp (2019) Lady and the Tramp isn't the worst way to spend your time, but it's a shame that it didn't at least try to be something different. - CBR EDIT

76% Doctor Sleep (2019) Doctor Sleep is more interested in the lingering pain, and whether it's possible to come back from such trauma. In doing so, it steps out from the long shadow of the 1980 film, and becomes something great in its own right. - CBR EDIT

29% Rattlesnake (2019) Rattlesnake is a great example of how a film that could be dismissed as pulpy horror can be constructed with a genuine sense of craft, resulting in something outright impressive. - CBR EDIT

70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) By going back to the property's roots, and creating a direct follow-up, not only in terms of plot but also theme, Terminator: Dark Fate proves there's still potential in the future. - CBR EDIT

68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Zombieland: Double Tap lacks the emotional impact that helped to make the original so enjoyable. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) The latest (and hopefully final) Rambo film is instead a dour, repetitive, xenophobic and borderline unwatchable bloodbath. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
63% It Chapter Two (2019) The cast is strong, the script is engaging, and director Andy Muschietti delivers a solid story with plenty of scares. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is competently made and includes some of the year's best horror creatures. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2019
67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) The tight direction and winking script keep the narrative going, even when the plot could otherwise get out of hand. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2019
No Score Yet Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans (2019) Teen Titans Go! vs Teen Titans isn't the most revolutionary film ever... But as a love letter to the franchise that incorporates plenty of humor and heart, the new movie succeeds. - CBR EDIT

85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Once Upon A Time leans into the more Tarantino comedic elements, and touches on much of his past work. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2019
53% The Lion King (2019) Dialogue, shots and scenes are recreated, more for the sake of appearance than for storytelling. It's not wholly fair to compare this movie to the original, but it's unavoidable. - CBR EDIT

64% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Unlike previous films, where the human cast was at best a side-aspect of the scares and at worst completely disposable, each character in Annabelle Comes Home feels genuine and fleshed out. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2019
63% Child's Play (2019) Child's Play begins like an episode of Black Mirror and ends like an unabashed slasher film, managing to meld both tones surprisingly well. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2019
32% Shaft (2019) Shaft tries to play with every genre convention in the book, slowing down a solid cast with a dud of a script. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2019
97% Toy Story 4 (2019) The animation is stellar, as is the direction from Cooley. It's all well-produced, but is more focused on providing a pleasant send-off to the characters that helped to define Pixar than it is to telling a story that needed to be told. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2019
54% Ma (2019) Ma wants to be something bigger, but keeps falling back on well-worn genre tropes. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted May 30, 2019
94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) It's nice to see how unafraid the film is being a finale; Endgame makes the franchise's history, and legacy, part of its story. The MCU will continue after this, but its current era feels finished in a fitting way. - CBR EDIT

89% Missing Link (2019) The film's characters and tropes of Missing Link may be a bit well-worn, but the movie is effortlessly charming, elevated by the direction and sheer quality of the animation throughout the film. - CBR EDIT

78% Captain Marvel (2019) If Captain Marvel is indicative of the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then the franchise is more vital and impressive than it has ever been. - CBR EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2019
92% I Want to Eat Your Pancreas (Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai) (2019) I Want to Eat Your Pancreas works incredibly well for the genre it inhabits, an animated version of something like The Fault in Our Stars, but with a better handle on teenagers and their emotions. - CBR EDIT

83% Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2019) Dragon Ball Super: Broly is a dream come true, with breath-taking animation and a surprisingly deep story about the parallels between our heroes, their enemies and the people in-between. - CBR EDIT
