4/5 65% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) In a world of swirling chaos, never-ending vitriol, and constant horror, Detective Pikachu and its story of fractured family and finding oneself are a welcome reprieve. - Nerdist EDIT

3.5/5 95% MEMORY - The Origins of Alien (2019) Much like a baby Xenomorph hugging your face, its passion for the source material is palpable . - Nerdist EDIT

5/5 98% Apollo 11 (2019) Apollo 11 not only highlights the best of humanity... but it also feels like an elegy for an age long since gone. - Nerdist EDIT

4.5/5 99% Eighth Grade (2018) Perhaps most impressive ... is that Burnham manages to create a film that feels so deeply authentic. - Nerdist EDIT

4/5 91% Mandy (2018) Mandy is destined to become one of the quintessential cult movies, and a sort of arcane codeword amongst devotees of weird and wild films. - Nerdist EDIT

3.5/5 96% Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (2018) Ultimately, [it] is a fine film, a living document of the life and times of one of the greatest performers of all time. This film will make you laugh, it'll make you cry, and it'll make you miss the singular force of nature that was Robin Williams. - Nerdist EDIT

3.5/5 94% Blindspotting (2018) Blindspotting is well worth your time, and it is undeniable proof that Daveed Diggs is our next great movie star. - Nerdist EDIT

38% Death Note (2017) It's more cat-and-mouse suspense than out-and-out frightfest, but it is well worth your time this Nerdoween for a twisting, turning story of twisted morality and murders most foul. - Nerdist EDIT

79% Tokyo Ghoul (Tôkyô gûru) (2017) It's creepy, it's bloody, and it's ghoulishly fun. Just be careful what you eat while you're watching. - Nerdist EDIT

75% Vampire Hunter D (1985) This is the D that your body craves. This is the D that takes place in a far-flung, post-nuclear hellscape where vampires, werewolves, and all manner of things that go bump in the night reign supreme. - Nerdist EDIT

No Score Yet Pet Shop of Horrors (1999) It's kind of like Rex Banner trying to find the Beer Baron on The Simpsons, but way more murdery. - Nerdist EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
No Score Yet Corpse Party: Book of Shadows (2016) While this sounds like the long-awaited Weekend at Bernie's anime adaptation, it's actually something far darker. - Nerdist EDIT

4/5 43% Ghost in the Shell (2017) All things considered, Ghost in the Shell has been one of the most pleasantly surprising films of the year thus far. - Nerdist EDIT

4/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) This is a ride well worth taking and one that will leave you with a smile on your face (and many, many earworms) long after credits roll. - Nerdist EDIT

3/5 23% Inferno (2016) Pass the popcorn and enjoy all the empty calories that Inferno has to offer. - Nerdist EDIT

4.5/5 73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Aided [by the] sumptuous cinematography of Seamus McGarvey, the surgically precise editing of Joan Sobel, and a murderer's row of acting talent, Ford's sophomore effort is bursting with confidence, which it uses to subvert our expectations. - Nerdist EDIT

5/5 93% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) The Red Turtle is an exquisite piece of art, a breathless celebration of nature, and an achingly beautiful story of survival against all odds that feels like a fairy tale in its delivery. In other words, it is essential viewing. - Nerdist EDIT

3.5/5 69% Free Fire (2017) It's a bloody, violent, darkly comedic tale of an arms deal gone awry, anchored by a cast of terrific actors exhibiting a wide variety of facial hair and leisure suits. - Nerdist EDIT

89% The World's End (2013) If you're looking to laugh your butt quite literally off of your body and leave with some food for thought, then The World's End may just be the tastiest flavor of the Cornetto Trilogy yet. - Nerdist EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet WAX: We Are the X (2015) For those who are unfamiliar with the band, We Are X provides a solid, albeit shallow entry point into their weird, wild world. For diehard fans... this plays like a greatest hits record with a couple of tracks missing. - Nerdist EDIT

3.5/5 71% Swiss Army Man (2016) A deeply compelling viewing experience that is both well-shot and well-acted - Nerdist EDIT

4.5/5 86% Other People (2016) What elevates Other People to best-of status is its cast, who feel as though they could be long-lost members of your own family or people you knew growing up. - Nerdist EDIT

2.5/5 22% Yoga Hosers (2016) It's nowhere nearly as horrifying as Tusk, and it isn't as funny as Clerks, but it's not without its merits. - Nerdist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2016
3.5/5 51% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) Political grandstanding aside, 13 Hours is a capable action thriller full of explosive action, charismatic performances, and outsized tension. - Nerdist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2016
3/5 28% Get Hard (2015) It isn't anything revelatory, but the cast is charming enough even when dealing with asinine subject matter. There are a few big laughs to be had and it's not a wholly unenjoyable watch. - Nerdist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2016
4.5/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) Trainwreck's outsized charisma, raw honesty, and adroit direction make you forgive the film for its sins. - Nerdist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2016
3.5/5 63% Unfriended (2015) Unfriended manages to make the genre and the story its telling feel as fresh and as frightening as a text message reading "we need to talk." - Nerdist EDIT

4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) The action is explosive, coming in fast and furious spurts, peppered with plenty of quips, character moments, and blisteringly choreographed instances of death and destruction. - Nerdist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2015
66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) A massively enjoyable film that course-corrects the missteps of the original and delivers on big action, grittier subject matter, and a less pretentious take on the sometimes prohibitively dense Thor canon. - Nerdist EDIT

4/5 94% Spy (2015) Spy won't just exceed your expectations; it'll shatter them. - Nerdist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2015
5/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Mad Max: Fury Road is a film that merits multiple viewings not only because of the depth of its content, but because it never slows down, and in this case, you won't want to miss a thing. - Nerdist EDIT
