6/10 44% The Devil and Father Amorth (2018) Ultimately, The Devil and Father Amorth is less a test of one's faith and more a test of one's patience.‐ Slashfilm

10/10 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Ramsay has concocted a lean, mean movie that skimps on specifics yet still packs a wallop. It's one of the most remarkable examples of less-is-more storytelling in recent memory.‐ Slashfilm

9/10 87% Annihilation (2018) Annihilation is a remarkable achievement. It lingers, burned into your thoughts, branded on the brain. It is nothing short of a masterpiece, and the fact that it exists at all is something worth celebrating.‐ Slashfilm

5/10 15% Mute (2018) Mute is a disjointed, nihilistic trip through two distinct storylines that have almost nothing to do with each other.‐ Slashfilm

4/10 17% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) Perhaps what makes The Cloverfield Paradox so frustrating is that it squanders the gifts it has been given.‐ Slashfilm

5/10 23% Inside (2018) The long-delayed Inside remake is finally ready to see the light of day. What this review presupposes is...maybe that's not such a good thing?‐ Slashfilm

92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Where does Thor: Ragnarok fit into the ever-growing ranking of the MCU? Somewhere in the middle. It's funny enough, colorful enough, and entertaining enough to strike a chord, but it's ultimately hollow. ‐ Slashfilm

6/10 33% The Current War (2017) The Current War may not break new ground, but it finds exciting ways to make the old seem new. ‐ Slashfilm

6/10 75% Killing Ground (2017) The true highlight of Killing Ground is the editing, courtesy of Katie Flaxman, which weaves together the multiple narratives in a concise manner.‐ Slashfilm

7/10 75% Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2017) Fans of the musician will find plenty to tune into here, and the uninitiated will likely go away wanting to scoop up as much of Coltrane's music as they can get their hands on.‐ CutPrintFilm

8/10 83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) There's more inventiveness, and more honest to goodness heart in this film than the last four MCU films combined. And the soundtrack isn't too bad, either.‐ CutPrintFilm

7/10 100% Lake Bodom (Bodom) (2016) ... there's enough originality here, mixed with truly stunning cinematographer, to make Lake Bodom stand out from the pack.‐ CutPrintFilm

6/10 41% Aftermath (2017) ... this is a fascinating film, simply because it's so out of character for Schwarzenegger. The actor may not have the range to carry such a film, but it's commendable that he's still willing to try even at this point in his career.‐ CutPrintFilm

5/10 26% Don't Knock Twice (2017) It's the script that isn't doing Don't Knock Twice any favors.‐ CutPrintFilm

6/10 68% Another Evil (2017) In the end, Another Evil feels more like a funny idea that would've killed as an SNL skit, but as a feature-length film it doesn't stand a ghost of a chance.‐ CutPrintFilm
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
5/10 16% The Dark Tower (2017) The Dark Tower shows some meager promise, but as the first in a proposed series it leaves much to be desired. ‐ CutPrintFilm

8/10 98% Kedi (2017) As the camera follows cats through streets, or up onto rooftops; and as drone cameras hover above Istanbul, looking down at a city that has nurtured these creatures for thousands of years, a calm clarity sets in.‐ CutPrintFilm

5/10 36% Voice from the Stone (2017) Voice from the Stone wants to pay homage to the great gothic horror films and stories that came before it, but you'd probably be better off just watching and reading them instead.‐ CutPrintFilm

6/10 67% Take Me (2017) By the time Take Me arrives at its climax we begin to see how much better this film could've been.‐ CutPrintFilm

9/10 88% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes at Night builds, and builds, and builds before unleashing a nightmarish, soul-sickening conclusion that will utterly devastate you if you've grown invested in the film's narrative.‐ CutPrintFilm

6/10 44% Black Butterfly (2017) There's a lot of material here for a tidy little thriller, but Goodman and screenwriters Justin Stanley and Marc Frydman don't seem to know how to stick the landing.‐ CutPrintFilm
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
5/10 72% Catfight (2017) Catfight wants to be some sort of mix of ultra-violence and Paddy Chayefsky-esque satire, but it fails to result in anything more than an excuse to watch two actresses beat the crap out of each other.‐ CutPrintFilm
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
7/10 86% 1922 (2017) Still, if you're in the mood for something quick and creepy, 1922 will do the trick. It'll haunt you in just the right way, and then fade away like a specter.‐ CutPrintFilm

87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Cinematographer Darius Khondji shoots the film in lush greens and smoky, dreamy hazes, resulting in scene after scene of gorgeous cinematography. ‐ CutPrintFilm
