B 86% Modest Heroes (Ponokku tanpen gekijô: Chiisa na eiyû - Kani to tamago to tômei ningen) (2019) An inspirational opportunity to highlight the strengths of short-form animation.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

36% Glass (2019) It just feels very anticlimactic considering the buildup of the first two films. Bruce Willis' character barely has an arc, he's so sidelined...‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A 79% Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2019) This is easily the best Dragon Ball movie ever made.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

D 53% Escape Room (2019) Definitely a talented filmmaker, but this feels like a studio-botched job...the movie took such a drastic nosedive into corporate sequel territory.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A+ 93% It's a Wonderful Life (1946) A movie people will have a good time watching with their families for enduring decades.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B 64% Aquaman (2018) It's a Saturday morning cartoon with an insane budget. The visual effects are stunning, but there are a lot of narrative and pacing issues...the movie saves itself continuously with phenomenal action sequences.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

C- 26% Mortal Engines (2018) This should've been amazing. Even the ending owes itself to another film...it feels like a bunch of movies we've seen before, that are better than this.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B 92% Bumblebee (2018) I think most fans will just be happy that there's a Transformers movie honoring the legacy. Fans can breathe a nice sigh of relief.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B- 54% Maleficent (2014) Angelina Jolie is good in the film, and I do think kids will dig this movie.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) I have not wanted a sequel to a Spider-Man film this much since Raimi's 2002 film. This is a wonderful superhero movie and an even better drama about an estranged father and son.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

D+ 17% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) There isn't much more to say. They try early on, a little bit...then they just give up and make a movie where someone walks around in a hallway.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A+ 100% Citizen Kane (1941) Orson Welles was ahead of his time.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B- 59% The House That Jack Built (2018) I wish I didn't have a grading system for movies like this. A film this strange and subversive...there are a lot of brilliant moments, and a lot of moments designed for you to hate them.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

F 16% Robin Hood (2018) Put it in the recycling bin. This version of Robin Hood is embarrassing.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B 92% Mirai (2018) There's a lot of narrative jump-rope to get through, but it's still enchanting and brave.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B 92% Mandy (2018) Beautifully-shot film, although sometimes the use of processed grain and lens flares were distracting. The second half was exactly what I wanted, but the first half is a bit slow.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B+ 74% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) An extremely well-directed film.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
C+ 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) There's a lot to like, namely Rami Malek, who is essentially Freddie Mercury reincarnated... but overall, it was far too safe for my taste.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

B- 81% Overlord (2018) Enjoyable...I didn't care about a single character in this movie, and I didn't care who got blown up...I didn't feel invested, but it was action-heavy enough and well-acted enough to appreciate...once it commits, it's really entertaining.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

C+ 58% The Grinch (2018) It's a beautiful-looking movie. Young kids will like it, but I was kind of bored with it.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
A- 83% Creed II (2018) A solid, emotionally rich sequel that builds upon the Creed legacy.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

C 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Rowling's script was the real problem here.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

C+ 40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) The actors were fine, it's just...what they did with these characters...this film mistakes why we like [them].‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

D- 40% Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) Absolutely atrocious. I admire the fact that they did try to propel the story in a different direction. But the story they chose was insanely boring.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A 60% In the Mouth of Madness (1995) The most simplified stories are often the best ones...it's not just an entertaining Twilight Zone-esque film, you can really tell that Carpenter and De Luca were trying to create something different.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
A 94% A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) Great build-up, the suspense and apprehension, getting you invested in a sequence...this movie has that.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
A 85% The Exorcist (1973) They went above and beyond...we have movies like The Exorcist to thank for so many other movies...‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
7% Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) Atrocious on every level...but there is something to say about the fact that it exists, and the drive he had to get it made.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
A 95% The Evil Dead (1981) The sheer passion, the ingenuity of them wanting to make this movie...a classic.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
C+ 47% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) It just feels like Sony really wanted to get a sequel out, rushing a lot of elements and making the end product feel disposable.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
C 79% Halloween (2018) Lacks atmosphere. When tension begins to mount, it's undercut by misplaced humor. This is a frustrating film that gets so much right but falters with key elements.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A- 90% A Star Is Born (2018) Some of the best performances of the year...Cooper is going to be a great director if he can continue this kind of filmmaking momentum.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2018
B 88% First Man (2018) It has amazing performances, and it's technically very well presented. Unfortunately, I felt very detached from Neil Armstrong.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2018
C- 29% Venom (2018) An occasionally entertaining misfire that only scratches the surface of what a Venom movie could truly be.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2018
A 96% Peeping Tom (1960) An integral film for the development of the horror genre.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

D+ 39% Hell Fest (2018) It has one of the most glaring goofs that I've seen in a long time...‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2018
B+ 99% Selma (2015) Excellent acting, very good directing, a good tight script -- a little bit of pacing issues and... other characters are nowhere near as investing as Martin Luther King is.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2018
B 66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) I feel like Eli Roth kind of revitalized himself with this picture...I'd love to see what else he can do with this kind of film.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
D+ 32% The Predator (2018) This film was a mess, and easily the most disappointing film of the whole year.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2018
D+ 26% The Nun (2018) Nowhere near on the level of what was brought by the first two Conjuring films.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2018
C- 12% Peppermint (2018) There isn't anything that special to it. It doesn't rise above anything...disappointing despite a really strong performance from Jennifer Garner.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

A 92% Searching (2018) I was floored by the craft on display.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com

Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
A 95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) It's just about perfect in balance of tone, and it's easily Spike Lee's best film in years.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
A- 92% The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl (2018) It will leave some people scratching their heads, understandably...but this is pure inventiveness and creativity.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
B 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) As a stepping stone to greater things, this movie is important...and it's a great date movie.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
D+ 23% Mile 22 (2018) This could've been a really fun action movie, but it tries to be so much more, and its message is unclear.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
A 93% Blindspotting (2018) One of my favorite movies I've seen so far this year.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
D 7% Slender Man (2018) The film only has creepy imagery. There's no real characters, no real story, no main protagonist, and then it just gets boring.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
B- 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) It's about as enjoyable as the first...there are some really good sequences with terrific dialogue. Plotting is the biggest issue here.‐ ChrisStuckmann.com
