No Score Yet The Evil Within (2017) The Evil Within is far from flawless, but it's hard to argue with Getty's devotion to this singularly distinguished work of art.‐ Film Inquiry

16% The Dark Tower (2017) The Dark Tower isn't a loathsome film. It's just not praiseworthy either, with the only highlights really being Idris Elba's performance and some passable action sequences.‐ Film Inquiry

22% The Book of Henry (2017) The Book of Henry might be brimming with talent, but in the end it's probably better left unread.‐ Film Inquiry

92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming is neither a full disappointment nor a complete triumph.‐ Film Inquiry

89% It Comes At Night (2017) It's the clear and defiant disregard for modern horror tropes that makes It Comes at Night such a refreshing watch. ‐ Film Inquiry

17% The Circle (2017) In part due to a shoddy translation from book to screen, and little effort spent on expanding its themes in compelling ways, The Circle feels like lost potential. ‐ Film Inquiry

82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is nearly everything you would have wanted from a Marvel franchise sequel. ‐ Film Inquiry

44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Rather than stretch the capacity of the original's themes, this remake shrinks them down to eye level, becoming a forgettable and ultimately pointless endeavor.‐ Film Inquiry

93% Logan (2017) Logan is a perfect bookend to Hugh Jackman's years of playing the role. To see him go out on such an exuberant high is much more than anyone could have asked for.‐ Film Inquiry

85% John Wick (2014) It is a wildly entertaining film, from the action scenes, to the sets, to the soundtrack, and in addition, it will likely be known as the comeback role for Keanu Reeves.‐ Film Inquiry

71% Interstellar (2014) It is a wondrously beautiful movie, with intense sci-fi sequences, a solid and talented cast, and even some thought-provoking ideas. This is not one to be missed.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
33% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) Horrible Bosses 2 is an inferior sequel in nearly every way - it has less laughs, less chemistry, and a much less compelling story, which doesn't even get going until more than halfway through the film.‐ Film Inquiry

79% The Theory of Everything (2014) The Theory of Everything is the type of inspirational story that is so often told in biopics. It is beautifully shot, emotionally driven, and a masterclass in acting.‐ Film Inquiry

59% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) The Battle of the Five Armies is a lot more of the same, substituting mindless, even dull action at the expense of character development [...] there is just enough here to be passable, and it completes The Hobbit trilogy on a mostly positive note.‐ Film Inquiry

91% The Imitation Game (2014) The Imitation Game is a wonderful adaptation of his story, full of brilliant performances, an engaging directing style, and an exuberant soundtrack.‐ Film Inquiry

89% A Most Violent Year (2015) A Most Violent Year is a fascinating, intense, character-driven drama, which not only transports you to the state of mind of NYC in the 1980's, but will also show you just how entertaining simplicity can be. ‐ Film Inquiry

74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) If you're looking for a good time at the movies, with absolutely zero thinking involved, then you've come to the right place.‐ Film Inquiry

98% Boyhood (2014) Telling the story of a boy from age 6 to 18, and filmed over that same time, it is a beautiful, poetic journey of life, with all of its ups, its downs, and, of course, everything in-between.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
32% Chappie (2015) Although mildly entertaining at times, especially in the beginning scenes when we first see Chappie come to life, the film suffers from an uneven storyline. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Convoluted, messy, and over-stuffed, The Avengers: Age of Ultron also somehow manages to be an incredibly enjoyable ride. Each of the actors bring their A-game, and each of their characters has their own moment to shine.‐ Film Inquiry

97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Miller has truly knocked this one out of the park. A home run if I've ever seen one, and one that I'm looking forward to experiencing again.‐ Film Inquiry

92% Ex Machina (2015) Alex Garland's Ex Machina is a chilling view of the future of AI, brought to captivating life through the performances of Isaac, Gleeson, and Vikander.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
98% Inside Out (2015) With originality, lively animation, and some powerful heart-strung moments, it will make you feel the same way as the five emotions in Riley's head, at least for a time (it's mostly Joy, though, by the end).‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
93% Slow West (2015) Slow West is the feature debut of writer-director John Maclean. [...] it is also among the more unique modern westerns in the way that it plays around with traditional western tropes and conventions.‐ Film Inquiry

93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) Whether a follower of the series from the start, or just hopping aboard, it's hard not to get a kick out of Rogue Nation.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
9% Fantastic Four (2015) The film suffers from an uninteresting plot, poorly developed characters, and a rushed, anti-climactic final battle. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
73% Black Mass (2015) Black Mass attempts to be something great; yet, when thinking back to it, it's likely only the acting that will be remembered. The film is riddled with common gangster tropes and underdeveloped characters. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
91% The Martian (2015) It is at once a thoughtful, witty, intelligent, tense, and emotional experience, as beautiful in presentation as it is delightful in spirit.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
76% Goosebumps (2015) Goosebumps finds that balance, managing to capture not only the charm of Stine's work, but the scares as well, without straying too far in either direction.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
94% Room (2015) Though it is a mostly audience-accessible look at a devastating situation, it also does not shy away from the realities of just how something so drastic can change our reality.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
96% Spotlight (2015) By simply presenting a true story in its most raw form, it ends up being an entirely believable portrayal of one of the most important cases of the past 20 years.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) In the Heart of the Sea is an all-around disappointment. The film suffers from poor direction, an unfocused narrative, and some very underdeveloped characters.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
60% Concussion (2015) Concussion does to the sports film what I was sincerely hoping it would avoid: it dramatizes its subject in such an unbelievable way that it becomes nothing more than mindless propaganda.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
68% The Danish Girl (2015) Although marketed as a supposedly progressive film about an important topic, it is, at times, almost unforgivably inaccurate. In addition to this, it is easily one of the most excruciatingly dull films I have seen all year.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
73% Trumbo (2015) Starring the very talented Bryan Cranston as the titular character, the film is not only a successful character study and biopic, it is also an engaging and entertaining glimpse at a very dark time in Hollywood's history.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
84% Deadpool (2016) With the same goofiness and self-referential humor as a character like Spider-Man, but combined with the graphic violence most often seen in DC comics; perhaps Deadpool is just the perfect clash of contradictions.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
97% Brooklyn (2015) Starring Saoirse Ronan in a career-defining role (even more so than her first Academy Award-nominated performance in 2007's Atonement), it may just be among the finer historical period pieces in recent memory.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
91% The Witch (2016) Set in Puritan era New England, The Witch is an atmospherically driven, religion-coated film that is, at times, both beautiful and terrifying.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
98% Zootopia (2016) The political landscape from which this film was born is apparent almost from the start, and though at times less than subtle with its agenda, it still manages to be an incredibly witty, emotional and entertaining movie experience.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
29% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) Time has passed for the Portokalos family, but everyone is exactly the same as the first time we saw them. Such a regressive aspect is just one of many problems that dwell within My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
96% High Noon (1952) High Noon reflected the heightened fear of the Soviets in the '50s, now similar to the xenophobia that has been raised and further inflamed by our political leaders.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
84% Midnight Special (2016) Part sci-fi, part chase film, yet mostly a story about an unusual father-son relationship, Midnight Special is a one-of-a-kind experience.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) With some incredibly innovative action, some deeper, thought-provoking themes, and a plethora of dynamic characters, both old and new, Captain America: Civil War is among the very best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
39% Jane Got a Gun (2016) Though I still have faith in modern Westerns as a whole, I realize that Jane Got a Gun is one of many that will likely be forgotten in time.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
78% The Shallows (2016) Somehow, The Shallows manages to just surpass the murky depths that most of those films sink to. It emerges as a surprisingly tense and entertaining thriller, though not one without its own set of unfortunate flaws and lost potential.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
69% The Infiltrator (2016) The Infiltrator just manages to stand out amongst modern films. Bolstered by a strong cast and an engaging, based on true events story, it is a surprisingly enjoyable experience.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
76% Lights Out (2016) Unfortunately, like many dime-a-dozen horror films, Lights Out suffers from an all-in approach, choosing to simply attempt to scare the viewer by any means necessary rather than working on making it genuine. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
22% The Duel (2016) It's not entirely forgettable, yet in our current world where even big stars don't sell movie tickets, The Duel had to have something more in order to really be successful. The film is an unfortunate misfire.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
85% Sully (2016) Though Sully doesn't push too far outside the boundaries of its genre, it still manages to be a subtle, understated representation of a very grandiose achievement.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
35% Blair Witch (2016) By showing too much in an unfocused manner, the grounded reality of the Blair Witch legend is peeled back to reveal the very obvious paranormal story at its heart, making the sequel a dull and listless venture to sit through.‐ Film Inquiry
