90% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) Watching Redford have this much fun is, as always, a goddamn delight.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

84% The Sisters Brothers (2018) The result is sharp, affecting, and fun story that climbs mountains, spans plains, and literally burns down barns. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

93% Mandy (2018) Mandy isn't for everyone. But for those it is for? It's a hell of a thing.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Look, usually blockbusters and sequels to blockbusters and blockbuster reboots and sequels to blockbuster reboots are just bland, but Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom f---ing GOES FOR IT.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

34% Fahrenheit 451 (2018) It'd be easier to write off HBO's Fahrenheit 451 if it was just flat-out lousy. But it's not-thanks to Shannon, Jordan, and the bone-deep horror of Bradbury's ash-smeared world, much of it works.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

72% Ready Player One (2018) It's nostalgia for the sake of nostalgia, and by the time its end credits roll, one wonders if there was anything worth being nostalgic about in the first place. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) The decidedly more kid-friendly Pacific Rim Uprising is rushed and nonsensical, with uninspired action and a script that seems almost cruel in its determination to squander talented actors. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

92% Love, Simon (2018) Love, Simon is FANTASTIC, and regardless of whether you've read the book, you should see it IMMEDIATELY.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

18% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) Ramshackle and clunky, The Cloverfield Paradox has the lurching feeling of a movie that's been edited and re-edited so many times that it's whittled away its identity.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2018
92% The Shape of Water (2017) The Shape of Water is strange, sweet, and wonderful, and easily the greatest film ever made about a mute cleaning lady who falls in love with an amphibious fish man.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) 2049's future feels safer and cleaner, lacking Blade Runner's sensuous grime (there's not a single cloud of cigarette smoke), but its imagery is no less striking, particularly when Villeneuve and Deakins go wide with hypnotic vistas of a decaying Earth. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) I guess it's technically possible you'll see another movie this year that'll be this much fun, but I doubt it. And even if you do, it won't have Space Goldblum. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

93% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Adam Sandler [has] nailed a few unquestionably great performances-Punch Drunk Love, Funny People-and with Meyerowitz, he adds another, expertly balancing sentimentality and self-loathing. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

69% mother! (2017) Is it a far-reaching indictment of America's lifestyle consumerism, or just a movie about how far Aronofsky has his head up his ass? Is it brilliant? Is it terrible? Is it both? It's Mother!‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

85% It (2017) For a movie with so much blood, It feels disappointingly bloodless. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

87% The Lobster (2016) [The Lobster] captures what it feels like to be single.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
27% Suicide Squad (2016) Suicide Squad leans hard on The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy as templates, but while Marvel's movies generally zip along, Suicide Squad lurches.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

87% Pete's Dragon (2016) Thank god, this thing feels like a kids' movie that has actual stakes. Remember those?‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

100% For the Love of Spock (2016) It goes without saying that each of us was saddened by Nimoy's passing last year, and The Love of Spock reminds us we weren't alone.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) This Magnificent Seven feels formulaic, but it's a solid formula.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) In Jack Reacher: Never! Go! Back!, Reacher goes back. The only people who regret it are the bad guys.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

91% Into the Inferno (2016) Another filmmaker would be content to shoot some crazy exploding lava and call it a day. Herzog, though, finds more.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
94% Arrival (2016) As timely as Arrival feels, there's an element of timelessness in the film-a sense of the legitimately profound that marks a true masterpiece of science-fiction.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
30% Passengers (2016) Passengers veers from comedy to tragedy, from romance to action movie, before ending on a note that feels too rushed and too chipper, even by Hollywood standards. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
87% A Monster Calls (2017) A Monster Calls finds director J.A. Bayona ladling out sentiment in thick, gloopy globs, and what might have been an engaging story.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
96% Paterson (2016) Paterson is beautiful throughout.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
93% Logan (2017) Logan isn't just a great superhero movie, it's a great movie.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
46% The Discovery (2017) [The Discovery] is an earnest search for meaning that ends up not revealing much at all.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
69% Free Fire (2017) In Free Fire, bullets and one-liners and shreds of emotion zip by-snatching you up, wringing you out, and letting you go, exhausted and exhilarated. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Is this movie for you? It is not for you. It is not for anyone. Do not look at it. Look anywhere else. Look anywhere but the sunken eyes of Johnny Depp.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
78% The Hero (2017) If Sam Elliott wasn't in it, The Hero would feel like a slog.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
86% Okja (2017) Okja's a lot of things-a satire, a drama, a horror movie-but the total experience is one that both riffs on and examines the complexities of love, friendship, and the challenges of trying to live an ethical life.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

100% Chasing Coral (2017) Watching Chasing Coral is a remarkable experience, one that teeters between overwhelming the viewer with the scope of earth's ruin and inspiring them to find ways to help.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
