Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 100% After Everything (Shotgun) (2018) A strong debut by Marks and Power because of its so disarmingly pleasant countenance, which flies in direct contradiction of its heavy subject matter of illness.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 93% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Works as the zippiest and most satisfying blockbuster you're certain to see this summer. What it misses in plot, it lands in character and spirit. ‐ Den of Geek

3/5 49% Skyscraper (2018) Even snickers of disbelief count for something. And in a summer swimming in benign blandness, Skyscraper's ability to evoke mirth instead of nerves is its own type of thrill.‐ Den of Geek

2.5/5 86% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The basic necessities of narrative momentum are given the requisite focus and care that in better properties can produce exceptional Marvel entertainments... but in the case of Ant-Man, words like "basic" and "requisite" are always the ceiling.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) It's a more accessible vehicle, but it's still driving toward a pure cut of that same gritty modern Western high.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) It's an easygoing and sometimes overly familiar slouch toward retro superheroics, yet unlike Pixar's last several bland sequels, and almost the entire whole of the superhero genre these days, Incredibles 2 has something to say. ‐ Den of Geek

2/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Its opening plays less like a scene from a Spielbergian classic, such as Jurassic Park or Jaws, and more like an effectively directed and higher budgeted sequence out of Jaws 3D.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 85% Upgrade (2018) An amusing glimpse into a future where Lucifer has been digitized and Faustian bargains are the equivalent of iTunes user agreements.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
3/5 47% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) Here is a patchy, scrappy, and all around messy piece of sci-fi psychedelics with a kernel of romantic joy underneath what amounts to screaming "Klaatu, Varada, Nikto" into a microphone.‐ Den of Geek

82% Deadpool 2 (2018) In the narrow prism of superhero tentpoles, Deadpool 2 refreshingly shouts, with four-letter words aplenty, that there is more to cinema than one-size-fits-all blockbuster boilerplate.‐ Den of Geek

3/5 35% Fahrenheit 451 (2018) By recasting the hue of its glow to a time when folks would rather not be bothered by facts at all, and truth is burning sans the flamethrowers, Fahrenheit 451 circa 2018 looks into the flames and sees us. ‐ Den of Geek

2/5 24% Breaking In (2018) Breaking In is the story of a mom forced to protect her children from bad men in a setup that should be Mother's Day's Straw Dogs, yet often plays more like Home Alone with less tension.‐ Den of Geek

2.5/5 22% Terminal (2018) It's a bit like being trapped inside a garish funhouse. For the first 15 or 20 minutes it is amusing, but after 90 minutes, it is overwhelming to spot the distorted reflections of its better influences.‐ Den of Geek

3/5 38% Mary Shelley (2018) As a biographical film on Frankenstein's author-here played with spirited fire by Elle Fanning-it takes a very, very conventional path to track a most unconventional life.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 50% Woman Walks Ahead (2018) While some have argued Woman Walks Ahead is a white savior movie, the sorrowful awareness of the film is that it knows all too well about its privilege, and the pain such good intentions can still inflict from 1890 to 2018.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 83% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) There is no desire to cajole or sweetly mock the naïve biases of godly oppressors... the movie is not interested in empathizing with the mistaken or in persuading a sheltered, skeptical audience.‐ Den of Geek

2/5 50% Marrowbone (2018) Marrowbone is like a postcard from its era: It's juxtaposed across an image awash in nostalgia, yet also leaves little room for the details of its journey, which Sánchez then desperately tries to cram into the backend.‐ Den of Geek

2.5/5 88% 6 Balloons (2018) It's a brief portrait with a devastating subject, but it feels unfinished, relying too often on well-worn techniques to complete an intimate study that may have simply needed a second pass.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 No Score Yet All Square (2018) Kelly offers a breezy and conversational voiceover that sounds a lot like a guy sitting next to you at a bar who wants you to buy into his Ponzi scheme. The more cynical viewer may be wary, yet all still enjoy hearing the prattle.‐ Den of Geek

2/5 63% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) [It] is only two clicks removed from Eli Roth's special corner of torture porn hell, and one can feel the grease dripping off the keyboard.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
4/5 100% A Vigilante (2018) Not only does Daggar-Nickson reimagine a reductive reverie into one of harrowing, feminine empowerment, but she does so in a way that is wary of violence, even while using it to defang the type of toxic masculinity that has long wallowed in this genre.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 95% Sorry to Bother You (2018) Sorry to Bother You is a massively ambitious project that has a lot to say about American life, much of which can be summarized as burn it all down and start over.‐ Den of Geek

2.5/5 33% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) For Hill and McBride's cult following, this will be enough, especially to stream, but I wish it didn't throw away so much of its talented ammunition.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
4/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) The adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel is a supremely entertaining crowd-pleaser, and a film that brings something to the table everyone should be wistful for: that classic Spielberg touch.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 86% Thoroughbreds (2018) Thoroughbreds is stealth noir where both of its heroines are the femme fatale.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 87% Annihilation (2018) [Its] dazzling and intentionally difficult third act may prove too high a point of entry for some audiences. But for everyone else, there is a beauty and melancholy to the shimmering sci-fi art installation created here. ‐ Den of Geek

3/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Jennifer Lawrence is an actor who is often most at home when her character is giving the stare of death to her enemies. In Red Sparrow, that just constitutes as foreplay.‐ Den of Geek

1.5/5 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Seriously though, was there a discussion of whether they should be lathering each other in "Chunky Monkey" or "The Tonight Dough?"‐ Den of Geek

2/5 74% Mom and Dad (2018) It basks in its wicked thoughts but doesn't have the slightest idea or inclination of how to act on them.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
3/5 61% Before I Wake (2018) It makes for an intimate portrait of not only the terror felt by children after the night light has been turned off, but in the wonder and dread of the parents who are tasked with keeping those babes safe-and shaping the fancies that dance in their heads.‐ Den of Geek

1/5 5% Hangman (2017) Pacino's ex-partner laughs, "Shouldn't you be fishing?" Who says he isn't? Oh sure, Pacino is technically on the set...but he generally isn't any more present here than he'd be on the back of a boat somewhere watching a fishing lure bob up and down.‐ Den of Geek

2.5/5 73% Hostiles (2018) Very much built in the post-Unforgiven mold, Hostiles desires to do for the "Cowboys and Indians" half of the mythology what Clint Eastwood did for those no-good, no-name drifters. But the deeper Cooper digs, the more he unintentionally kills its passion.‐ Den of Geek

2.5/5 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) With nearly every number designed to evoke the faux-empowerment of a Katy Perry anthem like "Firework" or "Roar," it becomes just as insipid as those squad goals.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Every new Star Wars movie since Disney bought Lucasfilm has been heralded as the first worthy successor to the Original Trilogy, but with The Last Jedi it's finally true.‐ Den of Geek

3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a slight but bemusing bucket of holiday popcorn for families wanting a second (or third) trip to the theaters this season after Star Wars.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 87% The Post (2018) More than any director in memory, Steven Spielberg has transitioned from being a beloved American showman to the filmmaker who continuously pursues a conversation with our national conscience.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2017
4/5 89% I, Tonya (2018) It challenges the media's vindictiveness, the 24-hour news cycle of sensationalism, and even gawking moviegoers of being as complicit as the trashy folks who ensnared Tonya into a lifelong trajectory headed downward.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2017
92% The Shape of Water (2017) Guillermo del Toro reinvents classic monster movie tropes to expose the "great" white privilege of America's past as the true monster.‐ Den of Geek

3/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) While cute and comfortingly nostalgic, this is also stifling at times too.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
4.5/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) It's a movie that flows as quickly as Sorkin's ratatatat dialogue, ever discarding and raising at a dizzying pace, while placing its real ace up the sleeve in plain sight. And her name is Jessica Chastain.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2017
5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) As a snapshot of middle American impotency on an epic scale, it's a bizarre and intimate vision conjured here.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2017
3/5 80% Tragedy Girls (2017) The appeal of Tragedy Girls is in its soft wickedness and game cast.‐ Den of Geek

2.5/5 67% Wonderstruck (2017) If there is one work that will almost certainly be understood as Haynes' biggest disappointment, it's going to be Wonderstruck.‐ Den of Geek

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Two valid readings of the relationship between Joi and K instantaneously begin when she lights a drag of his smoke, and within that paradox is the heart of the entire Blade Runner universe.‐ Den of Geek

1.5/5 71% The Babysitter (2017) For those who seek only the most basic diversion of blood and curvy stimulation, The Babysitter might fit the bill this Friday the 13th, but this intended trashy fun is really just trash.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) [It] harnesses knife-taking-life clichés to produce a merry ride of Halloween silliness with far more chuckles than chills‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Professor Marston makes the persuasive case that Wonder Woman has the greatest origin story of them all.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Gerwig proves that in addition to being a wonderful actor and screenwriter, she is also emerging as one of the sharpest cinematic voices of her generation.‐ Den of Geek

2/5 40% The Mountain Between Us (2017) A slightly more extreme sports version of a Currier and Ives print.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 92% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Here are three generations of New York intellectualism and high-minded artistic aspirations. While that doesn't improve anyone in the clan's health, it can make for a fairly heartwarming and deliriously funny cult.‐ Den of Geek
