10/10 100% Hereditary (2018) Few films have explored the persistent, seemingly inescapable terror of mental illness with such alarming precision. ‐ ScreenCrush

17% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter is a major disappointment, but, as proven by two phenomenal seasons of Vice Principals, Hill is still more than capable of delivering the goods.‐ ScreenCrush

9/10 91% Isle of Dogs (2018) Isle of Dogs is the epitome of a heart-warming adventure; a funny, fantastic and thought-provoking tale set in a world where one man's trash is another man's best friend.‐ ScreenCrush

3/10 74% Ready Player One (2018) The cinematic equivalent of a pop-culture mashup tee.‐ ScreenCrush

8/10 91% Gerald's Game (2017) ... Gerald's Game isn't exclusively a story about trauma, but one of survival.‐ ScreenCrush

10/10 100% Revenge (2018) An astonishing, subversive take on tired clichés.‐ ScreenCrush

5/10 89% Wheelman (2017) A unique perspective wasted on a film that fails to deliver any actual excitement.‐ ScreenCrush

9/10 84% The Square (2017) As thought-provoking as it is hilarious.‐ ScreenCrush

8/10 93% Thelma (2017) This gorgeous genre film from Norway, with its themes of suppressed sexuality, will undoubtedly resonate with members of LGBTQ communities around the world.‐ ScreenCrush

9/10 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) One of the most disturbing cinematic experiences of the year.‐ ScreenCrush

8/10 85% It (2017) Really good. Scary good, even.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
9/10 88% It Comes At Night (2017) For those who acutely empathize with the ravages of grief, Shults has delivered a film more horrific than any boogeyman or ghoul in recent memory.‐ ScreenCrush

3/10 16% The Circle (2017) Black Mirror for Dummies.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
7/10 90% Win It All (2017) Win It All is a largely enjoyable exercise in the concept of acting as reacting, as most of the film's plot (and humor) is driven by the ways people respond to Eddie and his predicament.‐ ScreenCrush

72% Nothing Bad Can Happen (2014) Nothing Bad Can Happen is one of the smartest, most heartbreaking films of the year. Gebbe has meticulously crafted a film that knows exactly what it is, what it needs to say, and what it wants from its audience.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
92% In a World... (2013) In a World... is far from perfect and doesn't quite have the laser-focus of a more seasoned writer and director, but even the most awkward and fumbling moments of the film are a joy to watch and experience.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

60% The Equalizer (2014) Unfortunately, Fuqua's film is tonally discordant, vacillating between gloriously ridiculous and mind-numbing; sometimes it's just plain dull.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
35% The Internship (2013) Absurd stretches in logic aside, for a film about salesmanship, The Internship does a horrible job of selling itself as a funny (or real) movie.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
85% The Way Way Back (2013) While it doesn't always stick the landing and the plot threads feel a little clumsily tied, The Way, Way Back succeeds where it counts with its big, sloppy heart.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
No Score Yet Horsehead (2014) A film that thinks it's way smarter than it is, and in doing so, sets itself up for failure by creating an expectation it can't possibly satisfy, insulting your intelligence in the process.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

49% Carrie (2013) Optimistically speaking, Carrie could have been worse. But the depressing truth is that it could have been so much better.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
91% Blue Jasmine (2013) While Blue Jasmine is first and foremost a character study and a showcase for Blanchett's impeccable acting skills, it's also a meditation on the idea of what we deserve versus what we think we deserve, and the intersection of standards and entitlement.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

5/10 63% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Miss Peregrine's could have been a thoughtful and bold metatextual thesis on Burton's entire career. Instead, like its partially-formed villainous apparitions, it comes frustratingly close to achieving substance.‐ ScreenCrush

8/10 60% High-Rise (2016) It may be Wheatley's least accessible film to date - and also his best.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
8/10 61% The Sacrament (2014) West also proves that horror can draw from real-world scenarios and give us surprisingly profound moments.‐ ScreenCrush

9/10 79% Veronica Mars (2014) Veronica Mars will inevitably delight fans of the series to no end, but newbies shouldn't be shy -- it's actually quite the perfect introduction to the series.‐ ScreenCrush

5/10 39% Open Windows (2014) Vigalondo is a talented filmmaker, but this thriller is perhaps a little too ambitious with an execution that doesn't convey all of his big ideas in a way that's cohesive and consistent.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
9/10 88% The Lobster (2016) A movie that explores the full spectrum of relationships with impeccable wit, delightfully dark humor and insights so sharp they verge on deadly.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
9/10 88% A Field in England (2014) A brilliant, uncompromising and deliberate experiment set in a very specific time, in a very specific place, and under incredibly specific conditions, A Field in England is a wonderfully bizarre microcosm of abstraction.‐ ScreenCrush

7/10 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) Jarmusch brings his arthouse sensibilities to the vampire genre, removing the focus from needless stereotypes and finding the humanity in the inhuman.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
3/10 17% Devil's Due (2014) Devil's Due is the latest entry in the found footage horror genre, and while it does have its fair amount of creative visual effects, the thrills are hardly thrilling in this paint by numbers occult chiller.‐ ScreenCrush

6/10 82% Witching and Bitching (2014) There's definitely a line between decadence and over-indulgence, and where The Last Circus was certainly the former, Witching and Bitching is unfortunately the latter.‐ ScreenCrush

8/10 92% The Spectacular Now (2013) The Spectacular Now works because it insists on allowing these actors and characters to pull you in with their alarming emotional candor.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
6/10 100% Sound City (2013) While there's an abundance of information and stories to be told, Sound City at times becomes almost as idle as its aging idols.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
86% Trainwreck (2015) If there is a lesson to be learned from Trainwreck, it's that you can't succeed if you never try. It's one of those platitudes often touted in sports, charmingly and appropriately repurposed here.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
7/10 35% The Green Inferno (2015) The Green Inferno is a movie that you'll likely never feel the need to revisit, though it must be seen to be experienced -- and that experience will linger with you.‐ ScreenCrush

5/10 50% The Zero Theorem (2014) For a film about connections, Gilliam makes it too hard for his audience to connect.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
7/10 63% The Trust (2016) Cage returns to the Las Vegas he once famously left, joined by Elijah Wood for a simple but mostly effective heist flick.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
10/10 94% Her (2013) Her, at its heart, is a story about being human, and to be human is to be so many beautiful, wonderful things.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
6/10 71% Man of Tai Chi (2013) As a martial arts action film, Man of Tai Chi is fun enough -- the fights are engaging, Chen's moves are breathtaking, and Keanu Reeves goes full Keanu Reeves.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
9/10 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) What We Do in the Shadows totally nails it from beginning to end with not a single tedious or wasted moment.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
9/10 90% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) A beautiful, moving, highly emotional piece of drama featuring unquestionably exhausting work from its two female leads.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
88% The Tribe (2015) Slaboshpitsky... has definitely delivered something rare and singular -- the sort of experience we hope to find in cinema, not just because it's new and we haven't seen it, but because it's truly stimulating work.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
4/10 60% Hours (2013) Hours goes from a passable, decent, (but hardly thrilling) thriller to a film that gives your eye-rolling muscles a total workout.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
6/10 79% Grand Piano (2014) Excessive in its simplicity, yet simplistic in its excess, 'Grand Piano' is a sharp thriller that knows exactly what it is and what it wants to do -- like any good concert, the goal is to entertain, and it succeeds fairly well.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
7/10 53% I Give It a Year (2013) It's a bit of a mainstream comedy, sure, and for that it sometimes feels slight or conventionally paced, but it's packed with more heart and perception than most, and it treats its characters as fully realized people.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
9/10 88% The Invitation (2016) The Invitation is an exceptionally unnerving thriller, a sharp study in the horrors of platonic indulgence and the over-extension of courtesy.‐ ScreenCrush
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
8/10 58% The Neon Demon (2016) The Neon Demon is as deceptive as shattered glass, with a brilliant beauty so mesmerizing that you don't notice its murderously sharp edges until you're bleeding all over the floor.‐ ScreenCrush
