C- 91% Fighting with My Family (2019) Fighting With My Family ultimately reveals itself as a shallow take on a genuinely fascinating story. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B- 59% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Alita: Battle Angel is something strange and unique and special, built from the finest repurposed parts. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B 68% Isn't It Romantic (2019) In an era where we expect more out of our romantic comedies, it manages to hit the mark without shedding off the things that made them so lovable in the first place. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C- 44% The Prodigy (2019) The Prodigy is almost wholly devoid of real scares, instead relying on the assumption that a kid doing violent adult things is enough to sustain a 90-minute movie. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
B+ 72% Piercing (2019) Central to Piercing's winding two-hander about the limitations of consent, lust, and fear is the way in which Pesce consistently keeps the pendulum swinging. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B- 71% Cold Pursuit (2019) You've never seen an action movie so obsessed with the particulars of dead body movement and disposal. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
C- 40% The Upside (2019) Although its leads find the odd moment of charm together, The Upside fumbles far too often when it attempts to enlighten or edify its audience. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

D+ 47% Escape Room (2019) Escape Room begins to feel a lot like watching someone else partake in that particular activity. It's about as exciting as that sounds. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

D 10% Holmes and Watson (2018) Holmes & Watson is the kind of sloppy production that's almost easier to pity than hate. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2018
A- 92% Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018) The small moments linger the most throughout Cold War, and it's in those delicate notes that Pawlikowski's film gains its true resonance. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2018
D+ 26% Mortal Engines (2018) There's more than one genuinely unpleasant fight scene throughout the film's 129 minutes, and that unpleasantness is wholly owed to the visually scattered direction. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2018
A- 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) There's a breathless sense of discovery and play that makes the film seem new, even as it's tap-dancing through the imprints of so many sci-fi stories throughout the years. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2018
D 15% Robin Hood (2018) This Robin Hood looks like a lot of other things audiences might half-recognize, but it barely resembles the classic story on which it's based. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
C- 59% The Front Runner (2018) If there's a facet of The Front Runner that justifies the film's seemingly purpose-void hand-wringing about protecting liberal icons, it's the central performance by Jackman. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
B- 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) It's just hard to tell exactly what the point is after a while, at least beyond getting the kids in attendance to cheer and laugh with recognition. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
B+ 81% Boy Erased (2018) Boy Erased is endlessly earnest in its messaging, and if the film occasionally does verge on treacle, it's certainly in service of a noble cause. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
A- 94% Burning (Beoning) (2018) This is despairing filmmaking, but also the kind that arrests the eye from its first moments. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
A 100% Shirkers (2018) Shirkers is the kind of adventurous filmmaking that renders so many other bone-dry documentaries all the more tedious by comparison. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2018
B+ 88% What They Had (2018) Chomko simply observes that life moves on, and we attempt to stay attached to the people we can as it does. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2018
B+ 78% Apostle (2018) Evans is an exceptional action filmmaker, but here he also proves himself an equally adept storyteller. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2018
B- 92% Heavy Trip (Hevi reissu) (2018) There's always been a from-the-basement feel to the genre, and everything about the modest dark comedy of Heavy Trip feels entirely faithful to that anarchic spirit. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2018
B+ 90% A Star Is Born (2018) It's a story of rock stars and A-list fame told in small moments and claustrophobic shouting matches, an epic made small to moving effect. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2018
B 85% The Sisters Brothers (2018) There's a strangeness to certain passages of Sisters that bolsters it through its seedy saloons and cacophonous firefights. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2018
B+ 91% Mandy (2018) You've never seen anything quite like Mandy, even if its DNA is assembled in patchwork from so many pulpy, D&D friendly novels of the '70s and '80s. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2018
C 58% White Boy Rick (2018) White Boy Rick isn't unusual often enough to stand apart, or nakedly emotional enough to push through its increasing reliance on tired genre standards. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
B- 64% Lizzie (2018) It's no surprise that most of the film's best material comes from Sevigny and Stewart sharing the screen. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
D 12% Peppermint (2018) Before long, Peppermint's true purpose emerges: to trade on the phobias of audiences inundated with MS-13 panic and "it's coming for your town next" crime rhetoric. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
B- 65% The Little Stranger (2018) There are certainly a few instances of genuine terror throughout, but its horrors are every bit as allegorical as literal. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
B 93% Support the Girls (2018) "Crushing" is a good word at large for Support the Girls' approach to work, which as Bujalski sees it is equally tedious and necessary. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
B 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Like the great romantic comedies, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
D+ 7% Slender Man (2018) That's perhaps the most disappointing thing of all about Slender Man: it's somehow way less scary than the spooky memes a bunch of internet dorks made up. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
B 46% The Meg (2018) There's a distinctly campy sensibility to The Meg that goes a long way toward anchoring even some of the film's graver sequences in a general sense of play. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
B 88% Whitney (2018) Whitney is made from a place of genuine admiration for Houston, but it's also bracingly candid about addressing the realities of her final years with minimal gloss. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B- 46% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper's knowing sense of transparency about its own corniness turns it into exactly the right kind of summer outing. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
C- 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Whatever you might have to say about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, at least it picks a more consistent mode for itself. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
D- No Score Yet Gotti (2018) It's hard to say for certain what defines a truly great biopic, but it's significantly easier to observe that Gotti is far from being one among them. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2018
C 13% Action Point (2018) There's a lot of talk of days gone by throughout Action Point, to such an extent that even the film's R-rated penchant for four-letter words and porno mags feels oddly quaint. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2018
B 96% Filmworker (2018) At its best, the documentary highlights [Vitali's] boundless zeal for this work that made him so indispensable. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
C+ 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) For the snotty little brother of 20th Century Fox's crown jewel franchise that it aims to be, Deadpool 2 is clever enough in its giddily obnoxious way. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
B 92% Searching (2018) It's a testament to how well-made the film is that the mystery always remains far more engrossing than the showy gimmick. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
B- 89% Bodied (2018) Bodied has an unfortunate tendency to stop just short of landing some of its most aggressive punches. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
B+ 89% Fast Color (2018) This is sci-fi which trusts its audience to fill in the blanks and do just a little bit of the heavy lifting, and it's better off for it. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
B 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) It's effective at being all the things it needs to be, even if that necessity is the thing that holds it back the most. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
D+ 51% Rampage (2018) Rampage makes vigorous use of all of Johnson's attributes, being that it's somehow one of the most ridiculous films in which he's starred to date. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
A 89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) This is cinema in every sense, the kind of film that demands your full engagement with every moving part of film as a medium as it unfolds. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
D+ 19% Tyler Perry's Acrimony (2018) That the film never fully gets to the heart of its savage commentaries is probably its greatest disappointment. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2018
B 86% Thoroughbreds (2018) Thoroughbreds testifies to just how easily the auspices of its rich environment can curdle into deceit and cruelty. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
D 19% Mute (2018) It's a film about a glowering futuristic hellscape of technology and unchecked hedonism, and it's not even the best one of those released in the past six months. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
A- 97% Black Panther (2018) There's talent in every corner of the film, and it elevates Black Panther beyond so many of its superhero contemporaries even as it exhibits some formulaic tendencies. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
C- 43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) The Death Cure feels unusually anticlimactic for a film that's pretty much all climax. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
