9.5/10 65% Happy Death Day (2017) If you're looking for a terrifying horror/thriller, It will keep you up for many nights. But for a vintage 90s era scare, this will leave a smile on your face.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 88% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) It's probably going to take another viewing to fully appreciate Blade Runner 2049. My gut reaction is it's a great movie bordering on masterpiece.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 65% The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One (2017) There's enough potential here to suggest a sequel isn't the worst idea provided Abbess and Cachia learn from their mistakes.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8.5/10 48% Going in Style (2017) This is like watching three master actors have a blast playing off each other. And it's a hard not to have get a thrill watching them in this charming and funny comedy.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

No Score Yet The 13th Friday (2017) Maybe its ultimate legacy is to be mercilessly mocked as the feature for a bad movie night. The potential for laughs might make it mildly entertaining.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

No Score Yet #Realityhigh (2017) Provided it finds the audience it deserves on Netflix #RealityHigh will likely be held in the same esteem for Millennials as its influences. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

50% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) There's goons with mechanical arms, electric lassos, a two-stepping Tatum, robot dogs and an Elton John fight sequence. It's absurdly ridiculous and awesome as it sounds.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 33% American Assassin (2017) Out of dozens of ways to make an intriguing and potential fun new franchise, American Assassin whiffed on all of them. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 0% Clowntergeist (2017) Unlike It, Clowntergeist probably won't force viewers to leave a nightlight on. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 82% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) The Villainess is the movie Quentin Tarantino wanted Kill Bill to be.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8.5/10 42% 100 Streets (2017) 100 Streets doesn't redefine the genre, but it's an all around solid film that's worth checking out.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8/10 No Score Yet Demon Hunter (Taryn Barker: Demon Hunter) (2016) It was hard at times not to view the film as the extended pitch to secure more financing. Kavanagh's passion project easily proves worthy of an investment.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 No Score Yet Beyond the Trek (2017) Sci-fi mysteries aren't an overused genre so this isn't flying in a crowded space. Disappointingly it fails to distinguish itself from more traditional sci-fi fare.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

56% Batman and Harley Quinn (2017) The overall tone feels off with this weird mix of goofy, silly sequences and very mature adult themes.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6/10 50% Message from the King (2016) Instead of being the next Equalizer, it's a slower paced investigative revenge piece that's lacking a harder edge.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

2/10 No Score Yet Karate Kill (2017) Of all the films I've seen this year, this is easily the one I'd be most embarrassed at someone else catching me watching it.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6/10 69% Central Intelligence (2016) Really is a case of good enough. There's enough to make for an amusing comedy, but like that disappointed teacher, you know it could have been so much better.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8/10 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Even with the at times indulgent action scenes, Hitman's Bodyguard is tremendously funny and a great way to cap off the summer movie season.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 62% The Ice Cream Truck (2017) A thriller featuring a flirty May/December romance competing with a standard slasher horror film makes for a bad (and boring) combination.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

1/10 77% Killing Ground (2017) I'm not sure who the target audience is for Killing Ground, but I'm thrilled to not be part of it.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8.5/10 No Score Yet Circus Kane (2017) There's easily eight to 10 films this year that didn't deserve their blockbuster financing and distribution. Then there's films like this that show how to do more with less. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6/10 76% Atomic Blonde (2017) Hopefully the inevitable sequel will tell a better story and not rely so heavily on the goodwill of having a female kicking, punching and stabbing the bad guys.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 92% Dunkirk (2017) I appreciated and liked a lot of what Nolan accomplished, but it was too impersonal and distant to fully love.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 89% Girls Trip (2017) After watching Girls Trip, it's a battle for second place for the funniest comedy of 2017. Nothing else is going to come close.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Would-be sci-fi franchise starter proves on multiple levels that looks aren't everything.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) It's taken six films and three iterations of the character, but Spider-Man: Homecoming is finally the comic version Spider-Man come to the big screen.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 93% Baby Driver (2017) Edgar Wright has little time for genre restrictions. Baby Driver is a unique and engaging presentation that avoids obvious comparisons.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 78% Past Life (2017) A compelling character drama that doesn't need the gimmicks and tricks of a thriller to keep the audience invested.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 46% Rough Night (2017) In Rough Night, the wall is fully stained, but very little stuck. There's a ton of crap on the floor however. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8.5/10 89% It Comes At Night (2017) This is the thriller equivalent of setting the timer on unnerving and letting it simmer for 97 nerve-wracking minutes.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

92% Wonder Woman (2017) Wonder Woman is easily one of DC's best movies, but it also belongs in the conversation of best comic book origin movies period.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

1/10 17% N.O.L.A. Circus (2017) Definitely a cut below in every regard and is just an all around poor excuse for a way to waste time.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) For fans who've stayed on board, this is a rewarding final act. But for others who've long since tired of this ride, there's little reason to sail away for this voyage.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6.5/10 19% Baywatch (2017) Based on the concept, it's probably impossible to make a truly great Baywatch movie. But the film is a pleasant enough distraction.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8.5/10 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) It's not a fantasy genre game changer, but this is a clever, unique and most importantly fun way to tell a familiar tale.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
9.3/10 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Vol. 2 isn't a perfect movie, but it's easily Marvel Studios' most emotional offering yet.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
3/10 13% Black Rose (2017) Tries to capture buddy feel of 80s films, but lacks any of the charm or thrills. Maybe you won't turn it off if you stumble across it, but there's no reason to hunt it down.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 1, 2017
9/10 88% Their Finest (2017) A real treat that fans of quality film making and stellar performances should definitely add to their 2017 must-see list.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.8/10 80% Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (2017) Repeated viewings will determine the exact slotting, but this is easily one of the finest efforts from Warner Bros. Animation.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6.5/10 33% Believe (2016) Believe might be earnest to a fault, but it's hard to totally a knock a movie so eager to please.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Not only assures viewers there's plenty more levels of ludicrously entertaining levels to go, but asserts itself as a contender for best in the series. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
4/10 33% Bethany (2017) Bethany has some interesting ideas that get buried in a far too familiar jump scare thriller. There's potential here, but it doesn't fully get explored.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8/10 No Score Yet The Swan Princess: Royally Undercover (2017) This is the seventh film in The Swan Princess franchise, but it clearly hasn't reached midnight yet thanks to the charming newest entry in the series. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
