4/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Ehrenreich manages to make Han Solo his own while never betraying the character's legacy. Have no fear, this far, far away galaxy is still in great shape.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 No Score Yet House on Elm Lake (2017) ... simply too many "seen that before" moments and not enough "well, that was cool" surprises to make it a strong recommend.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 77% Beirut (2018) Gilroy and Anderson have managed to wring captivating mystery, adventure, and danger from a genre in bad need of resuscitation‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Fans of the genre should be delighted with Krasinski's B-movie handling of his film and the new attention he is sure to bring. A Quiet Place makes a whole lot of noise in the horror genre.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) A complex balancing act with a perfectly executed payoff that might not have had the same impact without Robinson's heartwarming breakout performance.‐ Reel Reviews

1/5 40% Gringo (2018) Very rarely does such a star-studded cast come together in a single film. Even more rarely does such a star-studded cast fail so miserably to breathe life into a film.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 87% Annihilation (2018) A strangely intoxicating mind-trip of an adventure that relies more on sound, feel, and sight than it does on providing answers to the perplexing questions at its heart‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 82% Game Night (2018) Riotously funny little farce that is a certifiable blast and guaranteed to be the best time you've had at the movies this year.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 78% Desolation (2017) Take a hike into Desolation. Just be sure to bring somebody with you. Oh, and never go off trail.‐ Reel Reviews

1/5 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Never thought I would say this, but the thought of enduring even one more 30-foot-tall close-up of an erect nipple dripping with ice cream, chocolate, or spit is pure torture.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 14% Winchester (2018) Winchester misfires‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
2/5 42% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Long and formulaic with occasional moments of intrigue. But mostly it is just dumb and disposable.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 54% 12 Strong (2018) Will never go down as a power player in the pantheon of great war movies. But it is a solid entry in the genre and a fantastic ode to the real story behind the heroes who lived it.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Beneath the mental camouflage and cerebral trickery is an elemental story about love, power, control, and an entitled man's reckoning with the life he's made for himself. And what a reckoning it is!‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 78% All the Money in the World (2017) There's one thing money can't buy, and that is our attention‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Isn't as big as the britches it pretends to wear.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
4/5 90% I, Tonya (2018) One of the wildest, wackiest and most unexpectedly entertaining films of the season‐ Reel Reviews

5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) This is our story, as comfortable as an old pair of worn-out leather slippers. Step in and relive your own personal journey.‐ Reel Reviews

5/5 96% Mudbound (2017) With broad cinematic landscapes and rich literary themes, it is most certainly something best consumed in a widescreen theatrical format. But if streaming opens it to a larger audience, then all the better. We need more cinema like this.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 54% LBJ (2017) If only the movie were as big, bold, and bombastic as the man it is about.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
2/5 29% Suburbicon (2017) A loosely tied-together string of pleasurable moments and frustrating "what ifs?"‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) Will be an exciting treat for some, and a frustrating trick for others.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 86% American Made (2017) As stylish and dirty as it is devilishly witty.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2017
1/5 14% Friend Request (2017) An ill-conceived, poorly executed, total mess of an attempt to mine terror from a popular cultural phenomenon‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) A well-executed, well-choreographed action thriller, but simply doesn't do enough to make us remember any of it once we reach the parking lot.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 85% It (2017) It's actually quite refreshing when the thrills and chills provide the much-needed break from all the pleasantness. How's that for something new?‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
4/5 92% Good Time (2017) We're never quite sure where Good Time is going next, and that's one of its most satisfying traits.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
2/5 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Bludgeons its way into theaters with a rapid-fire hail of machine gun bullets and filthy jokes, neither of which is capable of hitting a target with any amount of consistency.‐ Reel Reviews

5/5 87% Wind River (2017) Wind River marks the moment Taylor Sheridan delivered as a big-time Hollywood director. And boy, does he deliver!‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) The Dark Tower's hopes of creating a far-reaching universe have collapsed. There's now nothing left to ward off the evil of colossal disinterest and poor box office performance.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 90% Girls Trip (2017) Haddish shoves everyone aside and fires a resounding shot across the bow of female comedians everywhere.‐ Reel Reviews

5/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) Brings a refreshing unconventionality to the war movie genre.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick is a healthy breath of fresh air.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
5/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) A genre-crossing masterpiece with music on the brain and burnt rubber in its soul‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
1/5 16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Exactly what you'd expect. It's loud, rambunctious, flashy, and about as dumb as a box of rocks. But you already knew that.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 20% The Book of Henry (2017) The Book of Henry is certainly not spineless, but neither is it a real page-turner.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
3/5 15% The Mummy (2017) Splurge on that bucket of soda and giant box of Goobers, but most importantly, enjoy your popcorn with The Mummy.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 49% Churchill (2017) Sadly, the loser in all this is not the viewer, but instead, Sir Winston Churchill himself‐ Reel Reviews

1/5 18% Baywatch (2017) DOA before the first jiggly body ever hits the beach‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 67% Alien: Covenant (2017) Doesn't necessarily break any new ground, but it does represent a new starting point in the franchise and should stand as a solid base upon which to build and explore new territory.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
3/5 66% The Wall (2017) All around good filmmaking about a subject that hasn't yet played itself out.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
3/5 45% The Dinner (2017) You may think you know how far you would go to protect your children. But you really have no idea.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
2/5 16% The Circle (2017) It is certainly real-world stuff rooted in our desire for a transparent society, but for such eerily relevant subject matter, The Circle sure is dull entertainment.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
2/5 67% Tommy's Honour (2017) Never quite manages an excitement level above that of, say, watching fairway grass grow.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
2/5 49% Going in Style (2017) ... not a terrible film. It's brief, mostly good natured, and is populated by an entertaining cast that can bring interest to anything. But like a watery bowl of gruel, it's not much fun to choke down, nor is it particularly nourishing once you do.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
2/5 68% Life (2017) Beautifully rendered and feels scientifically accurate, but isn't very smart. And without our total buy in, the whole thing feels like a fascinating "what if" premise ruined by "now what" execution.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
1/5 26% Table 19 (2017) Nobody likes weddings and we certainly don't want to see what goes on at table 19.‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) There's either a bit of genius at play or this is one heck of a lucky first strike‐ Reel Reviews
