3.5/5 40% Wilson (2017) Wilson is a fine showcase for the talented Woody Harrelson to create another character who, at least at first, is mostly likable for being so unlikable.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
3/5 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Jessica Chastain and director Niki Caro bring a tenderness to The Zookeeper's Wife, but it's hurt by erratic pacing.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
B+ 68% Life (2017) A welcome addition to the genre, although it is slower and more grounded in reality than the science fiction movies to which modern audiences have become accustomed. ‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2017
No Score Yet The Show About the Show (2017) An amusing show-slash-movie, with the caveat being that you really need to be able to endure Zahedi's nerdy and neurotic persona to be able to fully appreciate his work.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017

1.5/5 0% All Nighter (2017) No, the main duo isn't the problem as much as it is the bad writing and a lot of the cast around them.‐ Den of Geek

B- 77% Kong: Skull Island (2017) A popcorn movie that's only good as long as you still have popcorn left in your tub, and is quickly forgotten after you've run out. ‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
1.5/5 19% The Shack (2017) An important message ... buried under platitudes, sermons and a saccharine score that endlessly plucks at the heart strings. ‐ New York Daily News

1/5 22% Collide (2017) Poorly conceived and executed, it doesn't even feel like something that can be laughed about when it shows up on cable... which will probably be very soon.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017

88% 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
60% 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

1/5 6% Rings (2017) In the end, this latest "Rings" sequel is just inexcusably bad.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
6% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
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
2/5 18% 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

2/5 18% 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 34% 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
80% 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
