7.5/10 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Spike Lee's best film in a very long time ... should continue the narrative that began with producer Jordan Peele's film Get Out even if it does so in not nearly as clever a way.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6.5/10 48% The Meg (2018) The corniest of popcorn movies ... Don't go in expecting Jaws, but maybe something closer to Jaws 2.‐ The Weekend Warrior

100% Night Comes On (2018) Night Comes On also introduces a lot of new talent, and though it's a quieter more introspective film, it's also one that's definitely worth seeking out.‐ The Tracking Board

94% Blindspotting (2018) Ultimately, Blindspotting is a far more powerful film that leaves a deep impact on the viewer, and it doesn't take costly Hamilton tickets to realize that Diggs is incredibly talented and should continue making films.‐ The Tracking Board

9/10 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) The Inception of the franchise...‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
7/10 48% Skyscraper (2018) There are more than enough nail-biting moments, solid action scenes you can almost forgive the weak script, low-budget casting to allow the majority of the budget to be used on the CG-heavy setting and Johnson himself.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6/10 52% The First Purge (2018) To say The First Purge is the best of the series" probably wouldn't be saying a lot ... if your local movie theater has air-conditioning, there are worse ways to spend your time.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6/10 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Noticeably lacking due to the absence of so much of what made the first film so good, particularly [director Denis] Villaneuve.‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
7/10 65% Uncle Drew (2018) About as silly and predictable as one might expect from watching the trailers [but it's] funny and entertaining even if you don't really know the players beneath the make-up.‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
8/10 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) A worthy addition to the franchise ... if you're already a fan of the series, then you're likely to go see this regardless of reviews, which is how it should be.‐ The Weekend Warrior

5.5/10 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) Sells itself as an action movie but then offers very little action ... quickly fizzles out and never quite recovers.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8/10 89% Hereditary (2018) If you want to talk about filmmakers that are carrying on Stanley Kubrick's legacy, then Ari Aster is the real deal, as he effortlessly combines the amazing work Kubrick did both in The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut. ‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 34% I Feel Pretty (2018) Offers a subtle but clear message, although I'm not sure whether that message is 'Confidence is Sexy' or 'Possible Brain Damage is Sexy.'‐ The Weekend Warrior

C 36% The Leisure Seeker (2018) There's nothing particularly groundbreaking here in terms of storytelling, and it seems like a fairly trivial waste of its two leads.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
B+ 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) The Strangers: Prey at Night isn't terrible, but that's mainly due to Roberts' skills as a filmmaker and the film's climactic final act.‐ The Tracking Board

94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) It's impossible to watch [this| and not consider it one of the best films of 2017.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
C+ 14% Winchester (2018) There's certainly good to be found in the story Winchester is trying to tell, but it's hard to believe it can possibly satisfy both the casual horror buff and the more diehard supernatural purist.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
C 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) While not horrible, [it] feels like such a wasted opportunity to end on a high note rather than merely petering away.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2018
47% 24 Hours to Live (2017) A mishmash of decent action scenes smooshed into a weak revenge-thriller premise that only comes together towards the end.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
B+ 96% Mudbound (2017) A triumph by Rees as a filmmaker, showing she can handle a wide range of characters and settings to create a cohesive story.‐ The Tracking Board

No Score Yet Bad Grandmas (2017) The embarrassment a few fine, august actors have to go through in the name of 'comedy' is lost on a movie that never warrants a single laugh.‐ Film Journal International

85% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) A faithful adaptation of a classic manga that drags at times but offers enough exciting moments at others to make it worthwhile.‐ Film Journal International

B- 29% All I See Is You (2017) Won't be for everyone, and some people are going to absolutely loathe it, but it's a lovely artistic character exploration that is quite compelling when you're willing to go along for the ride.‐ The Tracking Board

A 88% Novitiate (2017) Betts proves herself to be a fantastic storyteller ... Intense and riveting dramatic storytelling we rarely get to see in any given year.‐ The Tracking Board

55% Killing Gunther (2017) Won't be the comeback Schwarzenegger fans may be hoping for, but there are enough funny moments in Killam's directorial debut to augur a promising future in film comedy.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
B 30% Wonder Wheel (2017) Neither Allen's best movie nor his worst, although it's probably a stronger than his last few, mainly due to Winslet's fabulousness.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2017
C- 63% The Foreigner (2017) It's the type of action movie that just feels dated and not in a fun way either.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
86% Haze (2017) With nothing particularly new or revelatory to offer, Haze is a terrible, pointless movie. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
D+ 67% Wonderstruck (2017) Wonderstruck is probably the biggest disappointment in Todd Haynes' entire career. How one can go from the masterpiece that was Carol or any of his other films to this is mindboggling.‐ The Tracking Board

100% The Legend Of 420 (2017) A decent, highly informational doc that takes a lighter look at a subject some might take far more seriously than others. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
B+ 92% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Having such freedom and such an illustrious cast makes The Meyerowitz Stories one of Baumbach's best movies so far.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2017
B 77% Last Flag Flying (2017) Last Flag Flying is a comedy with a lower case "c," so if you're expecting a lot of big laughs from this story about a man mourning the death of his son, you should probably adjust your expectations.‐ The Tracking Board
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
78% Pearl Jam: Let's Play Two (2017) A decent concert film but also a touching tribute to Eddie Vedder's childhood love for the Chicago Cubs, which should make it a favorite among Pearl Jam and Cubs fans alike.‐ Film Journal International

3.5/5 51% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) It's a decent character piece for Washington to break away from that same cocksure role we've seen him play so many times before‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 38% I Love You, Daddy (2017) [C.K.] has made the type of masterful picture that might put him into serious consideration as a filmmaker...‐ Den of Geek

Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2017
No Score Yet Welcome to Willits (2017) A twisty redneck genre flick that partially thrives on its odd stoner humor, then loses something as it shifts to something far darker.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
14% Friend Request (2017) Friend Request is either the funniest bad horror movie ever made or, more likely, just a bad movie that was never meant to be a comedy.‐ Film Journal International

4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) The Disaster Artist comes off a lot like Ed Wood or even American Splendor, as it feels like there's always multiple layers to what Franco is doing.‐ Den of Geek
