94% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) You'll leave the theater delightfully exhausted after spending almost the entire length... frantically piecing together the plot, feeling your adrenaline pumping during the action scenes, and gripping the seat from constant tension. ‐ io9.com

60% 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

51% 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

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) This may not be your favorite Star Wars movie, and it definitely won't change what you think Star Wars can be. It will, however, remind you of everything you love about it.‐ io9.com

83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Rewarding and audacious in ways the franchise has never been before and isn't likely to be again. It's a movie that is not screwing around.‐ 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
49% 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

43% 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

100% 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

32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) Sporting an emotional connection and narratively complexity that's new to the franchise, Insidious: The Last Key is entertaining and effective.‐ io9.com

91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The Last Jedi is a top-of-the-line, A-plus Star Wars and scifi movie -- one that we'll be watching and discussing for as long as there's a galaxy far, far away.‐ io9.com

86% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) The film is filled with lots of familiar tropes, but it's done with such a bright, contagious innocence, you can't help but fall in love with it.‐ io9.com

92% The Shape of Water (2017) ... del Toro's film is poetic, sumptuous, emotionally complex, and yet almost strikingly simple in its narrative.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
40% 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

88% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) The Untamed glues itself to your consciousness. There are a handful of images in the film that you will never forget -- seeing them, your mind races with the implications and beauty of what that meteor and crawly thing represent.‐ io9.com

49% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming is not your typical Marvel movie -- and that's exactly what makes it great.‐ io9.com

74% Sleight (2017) Sleight is a strong feature debut for Dillard with great moments that tend to pick up the more humdrum bulk of the film. It's definitely uneven, but the glorious, jaw-dropping climax is worth the price of admission alone.‐ io9.com

30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) For the most part, I think King Arthur: Legend of the Sword succeeds. Ritchie's style and this material don't always mesh, but when they do, the film is definitely entertaining.‐ io9.com

66% Alien: Covenant (2017) Here's a sentence I'm just incredibly sad to type: Alien: Covenant is bad.‐ io9.com

94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is the kind of science fiction film we dream of. It's got big stars, a bigger concept, and the longer it goes, the more it demands of its audience. The pacing is methodical, the story captivating, and filmmaking beautiful.‐ io9.com

76% Split (2017) The movie completely stands on its own, and shows Shyamalan doing what he does best: Taking an original idea and twisting it in a new way to keep you guessing and riveted until the very end.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2017
84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) The Girl With All the Gifts is just plain great. It's captivating, entertaining, provocative, and most of all, it's the freshest take on the zombie genre we've seen in years.‐ io9.com

86% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) The Autopsy of Jane Doe is a solid, scary, and worthy addition to the horror genre.‐ io9.com

63% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is certainly a movie I'd recommend if only so we get to see more of this world in the future. All it needs is a bit more focus.‐ io9.com

45% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Despite the fun of the third act, it can't erase those first 90 minutes, and the harsh tonal shift between the two.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
86% A Monster Calls (2017) From the very beginning, A Monster Calls sets out to make you feel and think a very specific way. It achieves that goal, but because it happens a bit slower than you may expect, the impact may not land as strong as it wants.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
80% Colossal (2017) Colossal is a film that half works and half doesn't. Even when it's not working, it makes you think and shake your head in disbelief that a movie this crazy exists.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) There are a few other minor gripes throughout the film...but I was so enamored with this world and these characters, I didn't care. I just wanted to see more.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
31% Passengers (2016) Passengers is such a mixed bag. Lots of people are not going to be able to get past the controversial premise; others, like myself, may be impressed that its grand stage holds such lofty goals, only to be let down as things veer off into the expected. ‐ io9.com

96% Moana (2016) Normally when reviewing a movie, you come up with a healthy mix of positive and negative things to say about it. In the case of Disney's Moana, though, I'm really struggling to come up with the latter. It's just that wonderful.‐ io9.com

67% Spectral (2016) "The less you know, the better." It's a common phrase used in all walks of life, and it applies perfectly to Nic Mathieu's Spectral. ‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) It's a movie that nails what it means to be Star Wars in seemingly every way, and it's not afraid to scare the bejeezus out of a few kids to get there.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
16% The Space Between Us (2017) It's so straightforward that if you've heard the plot...you can probably guess everything about the story, the conflict, and all of the things it's going to try to make you feel, with the end result being you're not going to feel much at all.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) All the good stuff The Lego Batman Movie has, which is a fair amount, still can't make up for its lack of cohesion. The movie is always trying way too hard to be cool and funny, and the result is that it's not particularly either.‐ io9.com
