80% Colossal (2017) Colossal operates largely as a deconstruction of a certain kind of romcom trope, but it's also a pretty legit kaiju movie.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

90% Dearest Sister: Nong Hak (2016) A slow burn that ends on a great twisted horror note, Dearest Sister is a fantastic drama and character piece that is also inextricably a phenomenal and creepy ghost story.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

94% Tikkun (2016) One of the most strikingly weird movies I have seen this year. The movie's examination of the life of the ultra-Orthodox Jews is fascinating and Sivan's actors - who simply can't really be Orthodox, can they? - are utterly convincing in all moments. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

28% Warcraft (2016) For a movie that isn't 'good,' Warcraft simply works, and as the credits came up I found myself juggling my criticisms of the film with the desire to see just what happens next on Azeroth.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

95% The Jungle Book (2016) It needs to be seen on the big screen, and the biggest and the best screen possible. This movie is why we have movie theaters.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Civil War isn't great despite being the third Captain America and thirteenth overall Marvel movie - it's great because of those things.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) In a world full of toxic masculinity, of #notallmen a-holes and GamerGate creeps, Everybody Wants Some!! is a welcome reminder that being a man isn't inherently bad. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) To say that Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice is a bad movie doesn't go far enough. This film feels like Zack Snyder hobbling the entire upcoming DC Movieverse before it gets started. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

98% Zootopia (2016) This charming, pop culture soaked movie admirably takes on racial issues but sags under the weight of its muddled metaphors.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

83% Deadpool (2016) Sure, it's about as shocking as a middle schooler giving his teacher the finger, but there's something adorable about that kind of juvenile nonsense.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

91% The Witch (2016) The Witch is a slow, creepy burn that pays off spectacularly in crazy Satanic awesomeness that's just understated enough to be elegantly chilling.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

80% The Revenant (2015) The Revenant is just the latest gorgeous, hollow and largely pointless work from a director who has convinced so many that his stark nudity is actually a sumptuous set of clothes.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

95% Creed (2015) CREED goes the distance, and is the best ROCKY movie since the original.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

90% Bone Tomahawk (2015) A genre-smashing confluence of an oater and an eater, Bone Tomahawk is an absolute blast even as it changes tones and takes on a profound gory grimness in the end.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

71% Crimson Peak (2015) A gothic romance, Crimson Peak is all about decaying mansions and withered aristocracy, sweeping heroic love and bitter villainous betrayal... and mutilated ghosts seeking justice.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

65% The Visit (2015) THE VISIT is fun, first and foremost, with a lot of scares and laughs along the way to a climax that gets just nasty enough to qualify it as a real horror movie.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

65% The Boy (2015) Not since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer has a movie gotten inside the head of a killer with such cold-blooded artistry.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) A fierce and awesome movie that morphs into a standard biopic.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

63% Ricki And The Flash (2015) Just like when a bar band plays a sweaty, messy cover of a great song, the movie's incredible and almost endless flaws can't get in the way of the true emotion at the core.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

9% Fantastic Four (2015) A cracking good science fiction movie... until the third act when it is dragged kicking and screaming into being a superhero movie and falls apart.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

85% Call Me Lucky (2015) Barry Crimmins has the kind of story that could have been a footnote, but Goldthwait is determined to give this strong, funny, unique man his own spotlight again. I'm glad he did.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

26% Terminator Genisys (2015) Terminator Genisys might be the nadir of franchise filmmaking, a soulless exercise in keeping an IP going (and maintaining rights) at any cost. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

71% Jurassic World (2015) We don't experience awe, the film says, because we're jaded and distracted, but then the film fails to give us a single awe-filled moment.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

19% Aloha (2015) Oh my God does Cameron Crowe try. Which is why it hurts so very much when he fails so very hard. And he fails catastrophically with Aloha.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) A triumph. Every minute of MAD MAX: FURY ROAD had me smiling, and every action sequence had my heart pumping. It's a modern action movie masterpiece.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) It doesn't have the fist-pumping highs of the first film, but AGE OF ULTRON is deeper, more emotional and all-around better. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

80% Furious 7 (2015) The movie that is staggered by real life tragedy but refuses to be felled; it blurs the line between the world of the characters and the real world in a way that is so effective and affecting that the finale packs a humongous emotional punch.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

32% Chappie (2015) It's not an interesting failure, it's not over-ambitious - CHAPPIE is just a bad movie.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
