100% 2040 (2020) It's all a bit too pie-in-the-sky, but it's better to shoot for the stars than not shoot at all when it comes to changing the world. - The Spool EDIT

17% The Sea of Trees (2016) The underwhelming script for The Sea of Trees keeps weighing down McConaughey's performance as well as the rest of the movie. - The Spool EDIT

94% Dads (2020) The new norm of fatherhood is presented as just that-normal-and by filtering these five fathers through Howard's unobtrusive filmmaking, Dads recognizes the flexibility of fatherhood. - The Spool EDIT

9% Trespass (2011) Trespass, which would sadly prove to be Schumacher's final film, has none of his usual creative vigor. Instead, it's a hokey DTV-level home invasion flick... - The Spool EDIT

100% Make Up (2020) [Windsor's] performance, like Make Up as a whole, serves as the umpteenth piece of proof that thoughtful drama and good horror are not mutually exclusive. - The Spool EDIT

94% Klaus (2019) While Klaus has a number of the same faults you'll find in a number of run-of-the-mill animated family movies . . . , more animated works could stand to take a cue from its visual creativity. - The Spool EDIT

90% Dark Waters (2019) Dark Waters takes place over an extensive span of time, but its exploration of its central characters is far more shallow. - The Spool EDIT

93% Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) There's always a gag, a visual, a line delivery or something else happening on-screen to capture your interest, and you could watch it half-a-dozen times and still not capture every detail. - The Spool EDIT

92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) [I]f there's anything Ford v. Ferrari is good at, it's slapping a coat of paint on the familiar and making it feel brand-new. - The Spool EDIT

13% Arctic Dogs (2019) Much like Jeremy Renner's ill-fated app, Arctic Dogs is occasionally unintentionally amusing for how bad it is, has little reason to exist and can't be forgotten about quickly enough. - The Spool EDIT

85% Slacker (1991) Making sure those differences between its countless characters are both heavily discernible, and endlessly interesting, is what allows the individuals of Slacker to come alive as people. - The Spool EDIT

33% Terminator Salvation (2009) Put simply, Salvation has bold concepts and an interesting tone but the characters just aren't all that compelling. - The Spool EDIT

20% The Grudge (2020) Why is The Grudge under the mistaken impression that relentlessly bobbing the camera around like an energetic marionette will make un-scary visuals intrinsically frightening? - The Spool EDIT

20% Disturbing the Peace (2020) It's rare for Disturbing the Peace to not take the most boring storytelling route imaginable. - The Spool EDIT
