57% Blade II (2002) The plot is essentially Blade fighting a bunch of people, then talking to a bunch of people, then fighting a bunch of people, then talking to a bunch of people, and keep repeating. Over and over.‐ io9.com

89% First Man (2018) Director Damien Chazelle has taken one of humankind's greatest adventures and turned it into an intimate character portrait. It's engaging and emotional, but just the slightest bit underwhelming.‐ io9.com

100% Starfish (2018) Narratively, it's a bit of a mixed bag, but when you look at the big picture, it works perfectly. It's a beautiful, emotional, weird, and fascinating movie.‐ io9.com

75% Suspiria (2018) Suspiria is a movie that is so rich on every level it can only get better the more you watch it. Luca Guadagnino has created an incredible piece of cinema that should make Argento proud.‐ io9.com

66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) The fact of the matter is The House with a Clock in Its Walls simply isn't that exciting. It's set in a world of magic and wonder that rarely feels magical or wonderful.‐ io9.com

Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
22% The Happytime Murders (2018) The result is a sad hodgepodge of half-baked ideas sewn together with an undercooked story, riding on the hope that lots of dirty jokes could bring the whole thing together. ‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
45% The Meg (2018) The Meg is dumb, but it knows it's dumb and buys into it entirely. That gives the whole thing a real cohesion that makes it work. It's exactly what you hope it will be.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
37% Extinction (2018) Unfortunately, almost every element other than the twist is bad.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018

57% Hotel Artemis (2018) Hotel Artemis is a solid feature film directorial debut for Pearce who exhibits a true talent behind the camera. It just so happens that this labyrinthian story may have been a bit too much for a first-time filmmaker to attempt.‐ io9.com

48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Maybe we've just become so desensitized to seeing dinosaurs running around and eating people that we need something new and bigger to impress us. ‐ io9.com

95% A Quiet Place (2018) While almost everything about A Quiet Place works perfectly, the best stuff goes unsaid, which is certainly appropriate.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2018
51% Tomb Raider (2018) It's an enjoyable, but forgettable, action movie that feels more like the training stage of one of the games rather than a complete experience.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) The scenes may technically be bigger in scope, but the repetition and lack of creativity make them feel... reduced from the original. And it shouldn't. It really shouldn't.‐ io9.com

97% Tigers Are Not Afraid (Vuelven) (2017) A jaw-dropping film that blends reality and the supernatural in an absolutely beautiful way. It feels like a spiritual sequel to Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone or Pan's Labyrinth, except with a more modern, realistic setting.‐ io9.com

Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
41% Justice League (2017) There are plenty of things to like, and about an equal number to dislike. But ultimately, its good things bumped up against the bad enough to leave me with hope and excitement for what's to come.‐ io9.com

48% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) As a showcase for a new scifi universe, there's rarely been better. It's just the most important stuff-character, emotion, plot-is overshadowed by that universe. That's what keeps Valerian from being great... but damned if it isn't a fun watch.‐ io9.com
