86% American Made (2017) Rather than serving as another vehicle for Cruise's charisma, American Made acts as a showcase for supporting player Domhnall Gleeson, who nearly walks away with the movie despite his limited screen time.‐ Decider

72% XX (2017) Just like men have been given the chance to tell a wide range of stories, women shouldn't be confined to one kind of narrative - and in XX, they aren't. That's what makes it so skin-crawlingly fun.‐ Decider

73% The Wizard of Lies (2017) [Robert] De Niro's interpretation of this greed-driven, grandiose villain is not sympathetic; it's intimate and unforgiving, and makes Madoff a more frustrating figure than ever.‐ Decider

44% The Most Hated Woman In America (2017) While certainly set up to be a home run with its cast and director, the film never really finds its own voice.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
82% Cult of Chucky (2017) If any of the Child's Play installments before this one made you question the franchise, Cult of Chucky will restore your faith in this deranged doll and all his unhinged antics.‐ Decider

88% It Comes At Night (2017) If you're tired of formulaic horror that leaves little to the imagination, It Comes at Night is the perfect remedy.‐ Decider
