60% White Boy Rick (2018) White Boy Rick is fine. If that's all you needed to glean from this review: a recommendation whether it's qualitatively sound or not (a reductive way of approaching film criticism, but whatever), then there you go.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

63% Summer of '84 (2018) At least Summer of '84 had the gumption to give us that much in terms of thematic messaging (trite as it may still seem to some), as the whole endeavor could've simply ended up more empty, wistful window dressing. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

41% Arizona (2018) Arizona creates a sense of isolated, store bought Americana that represented safety for many of its country's citizens during the mid-aughts.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet Despite a late in the game reveal/cameo and some okay action in the final act, Kin can never really rise above being anything more than "ho hum", chugging along without any sort of stand out scene.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

30% Kin (2018) Josh and Jonathan Baker's feature length expansion on their acclaimed sci-fi short is big on SFX, but lacks in almost every other department.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

46% The Meg (2018) In short, this isn't quite Sharknado, but it's certainly that Syfy junker's classier big screen cousin.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Even the comedic bits absolutely pop and sing, as you can tell Lee's invigorated by the material, and totally invested in letting the audience explore just how audacious the tale he's telling truly is. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Fallout may be the most viscerally satisfying blockbuster sequel since James Cameron changed the whole game with Terminator 2.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Denzel continues to have the time of his life being this solitary avenging angel, and Fuqua is painting every moment of extreme violence dark crimson.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

26% Event Horizon (1997) For a movie this heavily compromised, Event Horizon remains the very best entry on Anderson's otherwise questionable filmography.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
83% Beirut (2018) Beirut is a rock-solid work of programmer craftsmanship and should be applauded as such. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

10% Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) A short, inexpensive thrill ride that may have its problems, but still pairs well with a case of cold beer and a hot burger.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

7% China Salesman (2018) In short, China Salesman is a piece of s---; a massive, steaming turd that probably shouldn't exist, but does.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man & The Wasp is a triumph not because it sees its heroes saving us all from oblivion, but because they desire the same comfort their audience does when they're possibly doomed to the void: a gentle embrace from those closest to them.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

91% Spielberg (2017) Why would anyone (especially a filmmaker of [Susan] Lacy's talents) bother making such a lengthy piece of surface level fan service, again telling us how hard Jaws was to film? ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2018
63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Day of the Soldado is so expertly crafted that you can't fully fault its creators for wanting to make the movie slightly more accessible and marketable.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

25% The Humanity Bureau (2018) It's not often you see a piece of Redbox ready pulp actively attempting to double as a protest film. There's value in that, even if its packaged as dumbass schlock.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

49% 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.

5% 211 (2018) Nic Cage's latest DTV action endeavor is a bizarre slog.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
58% Hotel Artemis (2018) [It's] a rather inert, counterproductive way to tell a story, and results in a decidedly middling slice of genre cinema. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

33% 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.
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
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.
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
14% 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.
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2018
72% 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.
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
89% 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.
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
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.

93% 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.

20% 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.

64% 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.

67% Downrange (2017) Cult favorite Ryûhei Kitamura's nihilistic single location nightmare makes a monster out of a bloodthirsty sniper.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
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.
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2018
88% 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.

75% Braven (2018) Braven is proof that Momoa can carry an action movie all his own, and deserves more vehicles were he can lay down the law in the name of saving his disarmingly average clan.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2018
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
72% 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.
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2018
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.

33% Beast of Burden (2018) Every design element is working in sync to never let us feel comfortable, creating a remarkably cramped ambiance.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
