74% The Clovehitch Killer (2018) By The Clovehitch Killer's tragic finale, we're able to forgive any sort of experimental misfires since it sticks the landing so well.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

69% Hold the Dark (2018) While the movie arrives at a bit of an anti-climax... Hold the Dark still returns to the key idea that we all run with our own packs, in one way or another. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

60% Close Enemies (Freres Ennemis) (2018) This is an unfussy genre entry that seasoned fans will eat up, thanks to the no-nonsense attention to world and character building.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

63% Suspiria (2018) This new Suspiria is a dense, defiant, confrontational work of artistic terrorism, bubbling over with ideas that demand repeat viewings to unpack, like a torturous three-hour filmic nesting doll.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet White Fire (1953) When taking its filmic sideshow heritage into account, the '84 exploitation picture's baffling nature actually adds up (though don't ask this writer to provide you with an equation).‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

59% 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.

67% 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.
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
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.

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.

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.

76% The Devil's Doorway (2018) Clarke's debut announces a gifted, innovative talent with a solid eye and sense for what scares the s--- out of us when the lights cut out. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

28% 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.

13% 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.

92% 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.
