0% Gun Shy (2017) Antonio Banderas hams it up in this dumber than dumb action-comedy that always reaches for the lowest hanging fruit for laughs.‐ Film Journal International

C- 7% Tulip Fever (2017) Good luck understanding how any of this might appeal to modern moviegoers. It isn't awful, but it's needlessly convoluted and dull, dull, dull.‐ The Tracking Board

No Score Yet Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story (2017) A beautiful film documenting some of the most groundbreaking rock music of the '70s and the major contribution Mick Ronson offered well beyond being "Bowie's guitar player."‐ Film Journal International

74% Shot Caller (2017) A brilliantly made film, unlike anything else out there, and it teaches a valuable lesson about what the penal system's cycle of violence can do to an honest man.‐ Film Journal International

A- 83% Patti Cake$ (2017) Aspects of the film recalls the early work of Damien Chazelle. If Jasper can continue to deliver on this level, his career may wind up being just as impressive.‐ The Tracking Board

38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) An above-average, obscenity-laden buddy comedy that mostly excels due to the brilliant comic pairing of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson.‐ Film Journal International

8/10 84% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) Fans of John Wick and Kill Bill should generally be impressed with what director Jung has done to put a twist on the typical revenge thriller.‐ IGN Movies

87% Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk (2017) A suitably punky, fast-paced doc that may be long and overly talky but is undeniably comprehensive. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2017
6/10 78% Killing Ground (2017) One thing Power mostly gets right is that he spends enough time with both the predators and their victims, separately, so that you start to care for the latter even if you don't fully understand the motivations of the former.‐ IGN Movies

No Score Yet Who The F**k Is That Guy? The Fabulous Journey of Michael Alago (2017) While it may not be the best-constructed rock doc [...] Who the F**k is still a satisfyingly quick 77-minute film.‐ Film Journal International

8/10 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) I'm going to end this review on some sort of hyperbolic pull quote that will look good on Twitter and/or RottenTomatoes that can be used in the film's marketing.‐ The Weekend Warrior

9/10 93% Baby Driver (2017) A grand entry into more straightforward American genre film-mixing by Wright, while still maintaining all the things we've loved about his previous movies.‐ The Weekend Warrior

4.5/10 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) By the finale, there's way too much happening on screen, to the point where no one will be able to figure out what they're watching.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7/10 18% All Eyez on Me (2017) Demetrius Shipp Jr. gives it his all with an impressive performance that's far more than just an impression.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 16% The Mummy (2017) Ultimately, The Mummy isn't absolutely terrible... there's a lot of potential here that's been squandered by including Cruise and Crowe.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8.5/10 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Jenkins (and Gadot) particularly excel in the action scenes, because when Wonder Woman first runs across the battlefields in her costume, you are immediately won over. ‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Dead Men Tell No Tales is flawed, but it's still better than Marshall's film and the weirdness that overpowered and eventually ruined Verbinski's original trilogy.‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
100% Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead (2017) A fairly comprehensive and thorough portrait of a band whose legacy has far surpassed its drug-tinged hippie roots. ‐ Film Journal International

Read More | Posted May 10, 2017
