4.5/5 78% Colossal (2017) It's unique creative spirit alone makes it a film well worth discovering and exploring, and while it's only getting a small release to start with, it's a film that will and most definitely should find an audience that will love it.‐

3.5/5 77% Kong: Skull Island (2017) The movie is as legitimately fun as it is thrilling, and it simultaneously generates excitement about for futures of both the giant ape and his latest director.‐

2.5/5 22% Table 19 (2017) Table 19 is never boring, and it has a handful of laugh out loud moments compelled by its talented ensemble, but it really just doesn't amount to much.‐

2/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) While there is certainly a flashiness to The Great Wall -- particularly expressed through a series of large-scale action sequences -- the most accurate adjective available to describe the blockbuster is dull.‐

4.5/5 91% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) A near-perfect sequel... a movie that wonderfully accentuates everything that is excellent about its predecessor.‐

2.5/5 31% Passengers (2016) By the time Passengers hits its underwhelming finale, you almost wish that it didn't start out so strong, just because it's basically all a set up for disappointment. ‐

4.5/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) If the franchise can continually pull off blockbusters with the same level of creative energy and the proper amount of reverence as Rogue One does, there's every reason to expect greatness for years to come.‐

4.5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) What Whedon and Marvel have created here is not just extraordinary, but one of the most entertaining and satisfying comic book movies yet.‐

4/5 61% Allied (2016) Allied proves that Zemeckis can still tell great, small-scaled stories, crafting a tight, compelling period drama driven by a pair of fantastic lead performances.‐

1.5/5 21% Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) With absolutely no kind of pacing or structure, the movie just ambles narratively from one scene to the next, never putting together a full story let alone any kind of arcs or character development.‐

3.5/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) There are certainly shades of Iron Man and Thor, but what the film brings to the table to balance out its familiar elements is some of the most bombastic, exciting and beautiful action sequences we've seen in modern blockbusters.‐

4/5 83% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) One of the biggest cinematic surprises of the year.‐

3/5 52% The Accountant (2016) The Accountant doesn't really amount to much, mostly sticking to boilerplate, standard action setups as some really great actors regularly pop up on the screen... but it does have something legitimately special in its hero.‐

3.5/5 44% The Girl on the Train (2016) A big part of the enjoyment stems from Emily Blunt's presence, as the actress gives a magnificent performance in The Girl On The Train that arguably ranks as the best of her career to date.‐

3.5/5 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) A movie that perfectly understands its strengths and capitalizes on them, crafting a fun story for a fun ensemble.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
2/5 85% Sully (2016) There are shockingly few scenes that manage to add to the story in a meaningful way, and it results in more drag than a plane taking off with its flaps up.‐

1/5 20% Yoga Hosers (2016) Yoga Hosers feels underwritten and not thoughtfully made -- the opposite of the trademarks in Kevin Smith's earlier work.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2016
4.5/5 60% War Dogs (2016) A much different film than what we've seen from Todd Phillips in the past -- but it's also the best movie he's made so far, and a great late summer surprise.‐

4/5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) David Lowery has crafted a beautiful, earnest family film with wonderful emotion and pathos that should see it continually watched for years.‐

2.5/5 25% Suicide Squad (2016) Suicide Squad isn't exactly the movie that audiences are hoping for, and not the bounce-back that the series needed after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.‐

2/5 56% Jason Bourne (2016) This is the first one that just wears its tropes on its sleeve -- making it feel uninspired and artificial (two adjectives that particularly sting when you consider that this is the character's big screen return after a nine year hiatus).‐

4/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) While Lin's success with big battles and explosions are hardly a surprise given his background in the Fast & Furious franchise, that in no way undercuts how jaw-dropping and thrilling Star Trek Beyond's biggest set pieces are.‐

3.5/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) No, Paul Feig's Ghostbusters is not as good as Ivan Reitman's 1984 hit. But it is still a fun blockbuster worthy of curiosity and delivering a great number of laughs.‐

4.5/5 97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) It's off-beat in all the best ways, has fantastic actors all delivering fantastic performances, and is a uproarious adventure with endless heart.‐

4/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) On a scale of Cars 2 to Toy Story 3, Finding Dory is about on par with Monsters University - delivering more of characters that audiences love, while not quite reaching the level of its predecessor.‐

4/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) Between the fantastic talent of and chemistry between Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, and the vision of James Wan, The Conjuring 2 demonstrates incredible potential for the emerging franchise.‐

3.5/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) [It] isn't as good as its predecessor, but it's a fun comedy made by smart, talented people, and it's certainly a lot better than you would expect.‐

5/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) The detective genre has persisted because it has everything you could want from a film - intrigue, action, suspense, romance, adventure and humanity - and Black's latest delivers all of that. ‐
Read More | Posted May 16, 2016
3.5/5 57% Money Monster (2016) A taut thriller that you'll find yourself vaguely remembering eight years from now as being "pretty good." ‐

5/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Bringing together tremendous character dynamics; bold structure; an emotional narrative; and spell-binding, fun action sequences, it's everything a blockbuster should be. ‐

4/5 50% Hardcore Henry (2016) Most certainly not a movie for everyone, but it's a film that's blessed with the clear knowledge of exactly who it's for and delivers specifically for that crowd.‐

3.5/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Shot beautifully, and with a fantastic sense of wonder within the world being created, which translates to big-screen magic ‐

57% War on Everyone (2017) If this kind of pitch black humor has a way of tickling your funny bone, however, then you should prepare to see one of the most hysterical films of your life.‐

86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) Like [Dazed and Confused], the movie is a celebration of the fun and freedom of youth, and it's simply in capturing this spirit that makes it succeed.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2016
77% Keanu (2016) A movie that's equal parts ridiculous, adorable, and laugh-out-loud funny.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2016
2/5 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) The word "adequate" is an accurate one in describing the opening two chapters of The Divergent Series, but Allegiant is the first to really be legitimately bad.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2016
4/5 53% Triple 9 (2016) It's pretty clear that the filmmaking team has seen Michael Mann's Heat at least a few times - but that's only intended as a compliment.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2016
4/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) It's not to be taken too seriously, but Eddie The Eagle definitely succeeds as a silly, entertaining underdog story.‐
