3/5 62% Dog Days (2018) Dog Days is a film by dog lovers, about dog lovers, and for dog lovers. All others need not bother. You just won't get it.‐ Reel Reviews

1/5 45% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) Directors have yet to find a way to utilize McKinnon's unique brand of kinetic energy and fidgety goofiness. And that goes for The Spy Who Dumped Me as well. She's way over the top here, and never gets into a groove.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) A ticking time bomb of harrowing action, frazzled nerves, and edge-of-your-seat mystery. But, at the same time, it is way too long and its plot far too complex and convoluted‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 97% BlacKkKlansman (2018) There's a uniquely satisfying sense of revenge that comes from watching Lee turn the vile words and hateful actions of racists against themselves. It's amazing that we've made it so easy for him.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) A purposeful exercise in discomfort and painful soul-searching. And it works.‐ Reel Reviews

4/5 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) There are a lot of moving parts as it straddles genres and takes on many of the hot-button issues we struggle with today, yet Sollima's tone and pacing remain rock solid throughout.‐ Reel Reviews

1/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Nothing but a blatant money grab propped up by its beloved legacy.‐ Reel Reviews

2/5 55% Tag (2018) Perhaps if Tag were a much funnier film its flaws wouldn't matter so much. Unfortunately it isn't and they do.‐ Reel Reviews

5/5 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Pull on your favorite cardigan, slip into those comfortable sneakers and spend some time in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe with Won't You Be My Neighbor. You'll be glad you did.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 53% Book Club (2018) Makes for a delightfully tacky diversion from the lycra-tighted noise and chaos of the early summer movie season.‐ Reel Reviews

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

2/5 34% I Feel Pretty (2018) I feel pretty dumb for having had such high hopes for this one.‐ Reel Reviews

3/5 82% Beirut (2018) Gilroy and Anderson have managed to wring captivating mystery, adventure, and danger from a genre in bad need of resuscitation‐ Reel Reviews
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
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 39% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
4/5 88% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
4/5 83% 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 70% 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

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 56% LBJ (2017) If only the movie were as big, bold, and bombastic as the man it is about.‐ Reel Reviews

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 39% 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

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
