84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) If you're a fan of genre films, especially things like Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later, then this is definitely a movie you'll want to check out. ‐ LRM

3.5/5 100% Get Out (2017) Peele takes the concept behind Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? to its furthest, most genre extreme.‐ Den of Geek

B+ 96% Logan (2017) Hugh Jackman's last Wolverine story ends on a grim, gritty and ultra-violent note that wins points both for being cinematic and for being so different. ‐ LRM

87% My Name Is Emily (2017) Takes its sweet time before audiences can connect to it in the way the filmmaker intended, but ultimately the emotional content of the last act wins you over.‐ Film Journal International

No Score Yet The Adventure Club (2017) A perfectly harmless family film that's about as challenging and interesting as Saturday morning television fare, and yet, better than expected.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
56% Sophie and the Rising Sun (2017) The actors are so good that it doesn't even seem awkward when the film gives us a romantic angle between Nicholson's Sophie and the Japanese visitor.‐ LRM

2/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) If you loved the original movie, you might not care so much about being given warmed-over seconds. Otherwise, this Wick has burned itself out.‐ New York Daily News

B+ 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) This is a far more fun and family-friendly superhero universe than what we normally get.‐ LRM

1/5 7% Rings (2017) In the end, this latest "Rings" sequel is just inexcusably bad.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
7% Rings (2017) Rings does little to improve upon a tired horror idea that's been done better by other filmmakers, making it aggravatingly redundant.‐ Film Journal International

2.5/5 17% The Space Between Us (2017) The movie tends to fluctuate between being corny, sappy, and outright ridiculous.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
No Score Yet Doobious Sources (2017) Moronic lowbrow stoner humor and two of the most annoying characters ever put onscreen make this a grueling experience. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
75% Split (2017) M. Night Shyamalan's thrilling and satisfying return to form showcases an entertaining, multi-faceted role for James McAvoy.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
2/5 19% Sleepless (2017) Sleepless isn't bad for making the Vegas PD seem corrupt, as much as it is bad for making them look incompetent and clueless.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
3/5 23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Probably best seen with a rowdy theater reacting every time the spirit's name is uttered.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
17% The Crash (Jekyll Island) (2017) Detailed knowledge of the subject and a fine ensemble cast of characters makes for a compelling (albeit wholly fictional) financial thriller.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2017
0% Bad Kids of Crestview Academy (2017) A genuinely ugly and misguided attempt at merging dark comedy with gore.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2017
3.5/5 75% Split (2017) Split is a thrilling return to form for M. Night Shyamalan that proves he still has many new tricks up his sleeve. ‐ Den of Geek

2/5 17% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) This is clearly one franchise that's been fully drained of its blood.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
2.5/5 35% Live By Night (2017) For a movie where so much occurs in the first 30 minutes, the pace still tends to drag and, at times, is as slow as hell. A lot of these problems can be attributed to Affleck's stilted screenplay that never quite finds the right tone.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
81% Patriots Day (2017) A harrowing but inspiring look at a deplorable act of terror that brought a number of brave individuals and a city together to find those responsible.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2016
4.5/5 93% I, Daniel Blake (2016) In a world that seems to be getting worse with every passing minute, I, Daniel Blake is a sobering but inspiring pleasure - easily one of the best films of the year.‐ New York Daily News

1.5/5 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) For years we've heard moans that video-game movies are jinxed ... Assassin's Creed won't lift that curse. ‐ New York Daily News

73% Sing (2016) A somewhat silly premise leads to a lot of hilariously quirky animated musical fun.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
31% Passengers (2016) A slow-moving, heady twist on the space travel sci-fi subgenre that benefits more from Chris Pratt's dynamic range than Jennifer Lawrence's performance.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
3.5/5 39% Why Him? (2016) Ventures into some corny (yet sweet) territory in resolving its central conflict, but it throws enough laughs at the viewer that at least some of them land.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
3.5/5 12% Collateral Beauty (2016) Despite the strange direction the plot takes, this is a film that goes with old school traditional values in the vein of movies like Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life...‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
4.5/5 87% A Monster Calls (2017) A deeply emotional film about loss that will probably have you crying by film's end.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
2/5 24% Solace (2016) End up being better than it probably deserves to be, but most of the time, that's because Hopkins can really do no wrong ... except in picking his movies.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 73% Sing (2016) Garth Jennings ("Son of Rambow") gives the humor in this comedy a very different sensibility.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
4/5 92% Hidden Figures (2017) This inspirational story of three brilliant women is like a bright ray of hope breaking out from the pre-Civil Rights South.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2016
No Score Yet Sad Vacation: The Last Days of Sid and Nancy (2016) A decent look into the tumultuous rock relationship that led to murder, but not particularly essential except to Sex Pistols completists.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
95% Old Stone (Lao Shi) (2016) Canadian/Chinese director Johnny Ma has made a sensational debut.‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2016
60% Goodnight Brooklyn: The Story of Death by Audio (2016) A must-see doc for fans of New York noise bands, but maybe a little too precious for anyone who never made it out to the Williamsburg venue Death By Audio.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2016
2.5/5 76% The Eyes of My Mother (2016) Not for the squeamish and even those with strong stomachs may find themselves getting bored at times.‐ New York Daily News

70% Miss Sloane (2016) Jessica Chastain gives an amazing performance as a woman you don't immediately like and have trouble rooting for but whom really drives what makes the film so good.‐ The Weekend Warrior

1/5 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) In a year already full of crappy sequels, Bad Santa 2 is the lump of coal we really didn't need this Christmas.‐ New York Daily News

3.5/5 55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) Chemistry between the talented Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins tends to overshadow Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes in Rules Don't Apply.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
67% Come And Find Me (2016) Zack Whedon's missing person thriller starts out slow but showcases fine acting by Aaron Paul and his irresistible chemistry with Annabelle Wallis.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
3/5 74% Trolls (2016) Having a pop superstar like Timberlake in your voice cast, and deliberately not having him sing until near the end just seems like a waste of that talent.‐ ComingSoon.net
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
No Score Yet Keep In Touch (2016) Ryan Patrick Bachand's breakthrough performance does a lot to show off the potential in Sam Kretchmar's debut.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
74% Trolls (2016) DreamWorks Animation's karaoke musical has the flimsiest of plots and silliest of premises, yet it still finds a way to pay off.‐ Film Journal International

3.5/5 19% Inferno (2016) Won't be for everyone, but those who have stuck through Howard and Hanks' previous Dan Brown adaptations should find enough thrills to keep them interested in solving the mystery.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2016
3.5/5 94% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) Absolutely gorgeous, with so much attention paid to every visual detail from the costumes to the mansion's many rooms.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
1/5 50% 31 (2016) Isn't as unwatchable as other similar movies, but it's still pretty deplorable and offensive.‐ New York Daily News
