54% Superfly (2018) Is the Superfly remake better than its predecessor? Only time will tell. One thing's for certain: it's exemplary exploitation, and the most essential piece of pure entertainment 2018 has offered up thus far. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

40% La casa sperduta nel parco (House on the Edge of the Park) (1985) The active misogyny and disregard for humanity come off like a mutant fetishist's wet dream.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet The Debt Collector (2018) In short, The Debt Collector isn't just a good B-Movie, but also a welcome throw back from guys clearly in love with their favorite genre's past titans. We should all hope they keep working together for a long while. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

20% Action Point (2018) Action Point is short, stupid, occasionally funny, filled with wince-inducing practical gags, catchy country music, and is generally pleasant and likable.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

70% Adrift (2018) A solid reminder of our place on the planet, and how love can survive even the most brutal of calamities.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

88% Rush (2013) While inconsistencies may make Rush a better legend, that's precisely what we signed up for: a mythic representation of men, told by some of Hollywood's finest fibbers.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

67% Fear City (1984) Fear City definitely sees Ferrara streamlining his "punk rock" style; nevertheless, the usual perverse weirdness the director peddles definitely peeks through. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet Murder Weapon (1990) One of Quigley's greatest collaborators was David DeCoteau.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet Deadly Embrace (1988) It all ends the way you expect these lurid tales to, but getting there is most of the fun. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

96% First Reformed (2018) Paul Schrader updates TAXI DRIVER for a new age, resulting in what could be his defining masterpiece.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

38% The Return of Swamp Thing (1989) Yes, it's a story as corny and clichéd as they come, but that's part of the picture's charm.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet Bent (2018) Bent is... the Karl Urban Show, a delightful excuse to showcase just how potent the performer is as a leading man. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

21% Terminal (2018) Avoid Terminal like you would avoid anything that could possibly kill you, because it's only here to suck up a little bit of your life, before being forgotten forever. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) This is tried and true shock cinema: wild, in your face, and meant to be experienced with the rowdiest crowd imaginable. The timid need not apply. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
88% Bomb City (2018) An elementally beautiful motion picture, filled with moments that will well your eyes with tears even when removed from the context of the crime they're detailing.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

33% Girlfriend's Day (2017) Stephenson stages scenes with the static sensibility of a sketch comedy director, letting each performer roll with their respective odd duck performances.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
33% I Feel Pretty (2018) Kohn and Silverstein (along with Schumer) concoct a tricky goofball fantasy (that's truly funny), while never forgetting the fact that these folks have all been damaged in some way when others judged their real-world image and idiosyncrasies. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) With You Were Never Really Here, Lynne Ramsay has molded a sleek masterpiece, unafraid of the notion that, in the end, we may all be lost to our own pain.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

42% Spinning Man (2018) It moves along at a steady clip, and Brosnan, Pearce, and Driver are actively engaged with the heady approach to telling an otherwise recognizable murder mystery. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2018
74% Paterno (2018) As a motion picture, Paterno is at odds with itself - playing both as a chamber piece character study and a Spotlight-style investigative journalism procedural - never really finding its true footing. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

88% 6 Balloons (2018) Though Katie's arc becomes fairly predictable by the last of 6 Balloons' breathless 74 minutes, the transparency of her character's development doesn't render it any less powerful.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

48% The Last Movie Star (2018) Those who remember marathoning Reynolds' movies on Sunday afternoons will probably still develop a rather large lump in their throats, as we bid adieu to one of the finest presences to ever grace the silver screen. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

0% Acts of Violence (2018) What could've been a decent cheap thrill is really nothing more than a somewhat unhealthy way to kill 85 minutes.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
82% Pyewacket (2018) While Pyewacket may not be perfect, it's still a promising little feature, proving its writer/director definitely has a distinct genre voice, as long as he learns to polish the more recognizable elements into something unique. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

14% Dear Dictator (2018) The only people to blame here are Addario & Syracuse, who block and shoot every scene with an energy that makes each week's installment of The Big Bang Theory seem downright avant-garde by comparison.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

75% Damsel (2018) The Zellners are certainly assembling an oeuvre that's distinctly their own, utterly unafraid to veer off the beaten path to their quirky characters' hearts' desire.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

100% A Prayer Before Dawn (2018) A Prayer Before Dawn is a savagely transgressive work, giving all who buy a ticket a front row seat for life on the inside, and just how cheap it becomes. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
93% Blindspotting (2018) At its core, Estrada's picture is a buddy comedy, observing as two goofballs find ways to amuse themselves in a hometown that may no longer feel like "home".‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
No Score Yet Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable (2018) All Things Are Photographable is a rather remarkable work.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2018
17% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) To be frank, The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter is definitely the worst film Hill and McBride have made together, but if you're a longtime fan, there's still plenty to giggle at here. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2018
No Score Yet All Square (2018) All Square is proof that Hyams is way more than just an "action movie director", and can work well with a talented ensemble of performers, while still exploring the surface of their universe with a documentarian's eye for East Coast life.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
