C 53% 12 Strong (2018) It feels like a half dozen or more recent war movies,‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B 96% Call Me by Your Name (2018) I long to be as free as Hammer is in the scene in which Oliver dances, wildly and gracelessly, to The Psychedelic Furs' "Love My Way."‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B 88% The Post (2018) You wouldn't expect a movie that relies on pay phones, typewriters and Linotyp to be the timeliest entry of the awards season.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B 77% All the Money in the World (2017) I haven't seen Spacey's take on the character, and probably never will, but Plummer's addition was worth every penny.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B 81% Molly's Game (2018) Chastain and Elba share only about seven scenes, but their chemistry is delightful, and neither is afraid of going all-in.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

A 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Employing some good, old-fashioned movie magic, del Toro has crafted a film that borders on sensory overload. It's wondrous, odd and visually arresting from the opening seconds.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B- 50% Downsizing (2017) It's hard not to at least appreciate the effort of a movie that wears its environmental message, along with its enormous heart, on its little, Ken Doll-sized sleeve.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B 86% Darkest Hour (2017) Darkest Hour demonstrates how, considering that everything and most everyone were working against Churchill, it's fairly extraordinary that there's still an England.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

C 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Aside from a handful of genuinely funny, can't-help-but-laugh moments, though, this trip to the jungle is anything but welcome.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B 54% The Greatest Showman (2017) Moviegoers won't learn much about Barnum here - and that's not really the point. The Greatest Showman is the type of spectacle he was known for delivering.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B+ 90% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Johnson has crafted such a powerful, screaming geekgasm of a movie.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
B 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) What distinguishes The Disaster Artist is that it celebrates drive and, much like an episode of American Pickers, turns trash into treasure.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
94% The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee (2017) For a documentary that mostly reflects on events of decades past, The Newspaperman feels remarkably timely when it recounts the Post's battles with the Nixon administration.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
A 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) A film whose biggest flaw is that it's occasionally too clever? That's yet another surprise in a movie that's overflowing with them.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

40% Justice League (2017) Justice League is discordant and incomprehensible at best.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
96% Mudbound (2017) For its part, Mudbound is a powerful story about race and class, told by a bold, new-ish cinematic voice in director and co-writer Dee Rees. There were plenty of tears following the Sundance screening I attended. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

A- 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) After the disappointments of 2011's Thor and 2013's Thor: The Dark World, something clearly needed to be done. All Waititi did was deliver Marvel's OMG-iest movie yet.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
96% The Florida Project (2017) Sean Baker is so skilled at making ugliness appear beautiful, I'd love to turn him loose on some of my childhood photos.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
34% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) [Mark Felt] is a ponderous history lesson in which little is learned.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
B+ 83% Marshall (2017) It's the filmmaking equivalent of a collective exhale. At least for many of us who believe that all men and women truly are created equal.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
88% Only the Brave (2017) It's the best tribute to all-American heroism to come along in a while. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) If you want to be downright floored by Wonder Woman, check out "Professor Marston and The Wonder Women," a decidedly different origin tale.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
A- 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) A wondrous work of filmmaking, Blade Runner 2049 is something you can get lost inside for darn near three hours. Much like Villeneuve's Oscar-nominated work on Arrival, it's visceral, often spellbinding, even brilliant at times.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
91% Gerald's Game (2017) Without spoiling anything, there's a scene that very nearly made me lose my dinner all over my laptop.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
87% American Made (2017) It's nice to see Cruise entering into another risky business and once again performing reckless maneuvers in the sky.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) For the most part, The Golden Circle only tarnishes what had been a very promising franchise.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
34% American Assassin (2017) American Assassin isn't up to Keaton's recent standards. It's closer to the movies he was cranking out while crawling back to the A-list after "Batman Returns." But he still makes the thriller worth a look, if only just.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
85% It (2017) IT makes for a fun ride. But I still don't know whether that means it's a good movie or if I just really like Stand By Me and Stranger Things.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
91% Good Time (2017) Good Time isn't helped by the script,‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
39% Death Note (2017) Death Note ... feels like it should break through with mainstream audiences - even those who think manga is a type of fruit.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
92% Logan Lucky (2017) After four years away, it's far better to have too much of a Soderbergh movie than not enough.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
A 87% Wind River (2017) Wind River was one of the best movies I saw at Sundance. Seven months later, it's one of the best movies I've seen in 2017.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal

B+ 80% Brigsby Bear (2017) There's a sweet innocence to James that makes the comedy feel more human than the outrageous premise would suggest. It helps make "Brigsby Bear" a triumphant celebration of the outsider in all of us.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
B 95% Step (2017) Raw, emotional, yet ultimately uplifting.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) For the most part, though, things play out like horror-movie bingo.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2017
79% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Through it all, An Inconvenient Sequel presents Gore as a Don Quixote figure, rushing not at windmills but toward wind farms.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
D+ 38% Kidnap (2017) My drive to and from the theater came within 10 minutes of Kidnap's running time and delivered nearly as much suspense.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
B 91% A Ghost Story (2017) A hypnotic, almost meditative look at love, loss and legacy.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
B- 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) The action scenes are simply stunning, jaw-dropping even, but there just aren't enough of them to overcome Atomic Blonde's lumbering plot.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
A- 92% Dunkirk (2017) Dunkirk's relatively brief running time, though, means there's rarely a dull moment. Viewers are thrust into the action, and like many of the soldiers, they're left on their own to sink or swim.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Even if you're somehow still on the fence, by the time the stunning War for the Planet of the Apes turns into a variation on The Great Esc-Ape, you'll be beating your chest with excitement and joy.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
B 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) For long stretches, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is an above-average young-adult movie with some super powers thrown in.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
D+ 55% 47 Meters Down (2017) Just consider it shark weak.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2017
C- 68% Cars 3 (2017) Cars 3 is basically Rocky IV -- minus the geopolitics and that glorious James Brown production number -- with a little of The Karate Kid thrown in, along with pretty much every sports movie cliche ever.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2017
D 16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The Last Knight is pretty much everything you'd expect from a Transformers movie. Stuff whizzes by, bursting into flames, in a jumbled blur of random images, noises and good old-fashioned gibberish.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2017
C+ 16% The Mummy (2017) Despite all these connections, no one seemed to realize they were writing a script that, aside from a plane-crash sequence filmed in zero gravity, plays to exactly none of Cruise's strengths. ‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
C+ 88% It Comes At Night (2017) Throughout its brief 97-minute run time, It Comes at Night seems to be building to something that simply isn't there. If movies were still shown on film, you'd swear the final reel was missing.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
B 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Patty Jenkins proves what a talented director can do with a superhero movie. She and Gadot also contribute touches that only women can.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
30% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is so convoluted, it feels like the first seafaring adventure from The Da Vinci Code's Dan Brown.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
18% Baywatch (2017) Dragged down by the weight of its many conflicting ideas, "Baywatch" flails about like a drowning victim that's incapable of rescue, ultimately leaving a bloated corpse of a movie washed ashore at the multiplex.‐ Las Vegas Review-Journal
