5/10 50% The Package (2018) If penis jokes still crack you up, this might be worth checking out. For those with more discerning comedic tastes, don't bother unwrapping this one.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 93% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Might not be a game-changing romcom, but it's exactly the shot in the arm the genre needed. It's got all the makings of a pop cultural phenomenon and a ready-made franchise.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 16% The Titan (2018) At first, it seems like the film is going to make good on its sci-fi thriller premise before it devolves into a boring, silly monster movie.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 69% Christopher Robin (2018) Delivers exactly what Winnie the Pooh fans would expect with charm to spare, a slew of heartfelt moments and the kind of genuinely sweet film we need more of in 2018.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

2/10 15% How It Ends (2018) Should begin with you not loading this one in your Netflix queue. It has potential, but squanders all of its goodwill and audience patience by the time the end credits roll. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

10/10 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Incorporates all of the best elements of the five films to make one of the most exhilarating, explosive and exciting action extravaganzas ever put on the big screen.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) By the time the film concludes, I'm hoping Washington and Fuqua are willing to make a second exception to release a third installment. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 40% Occupation (2018) If you're a sci-fi action fan, this should definitely make your 2018 viewing list.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 80% A.i. Tales (2018) There's some really good, decent and underwhelming efforts. Naturally the big question is if it's worth the time investment? ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 13% The Kissing Booth (2018) Largely for its pre-teen audience as its flaws will likely stand out like an unwanted cold sore on prom night for those outside of its target demographic.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Delivers giant sized laughs, fun thrills and is all together a perfectly timed chapter of Phase 3 to loosen the mood up for MCU fans.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

2/10 10% Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) Hades has a fraction of the creativity, sidelines the main draw and is the equivalent of a cinematic prison sentence.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 90% Set It Up (2018) Such a fun, enjoyable and funny romantic comedy it probably would have been the biggest box office hit in the genre since The Proposal. Lucky for Netflix and its viewers. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6/10 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) Hotel Artemis would have make for an excellent Netflix original that's a welcome bonus to stumble onto on an otherwise boring night. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) Worth the surprisingly long wait. Is it a superior sequel to Director/Writer Brad Bird's first spin with the Parr family? It's close, but not quite. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8.5/10 80% The Jurassic Games (2018) Clearly not meant to be mistaken for high art, but if you're looking for a film that isn't meant to be taken seriously, this is a really fun option.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) Debbie's crew basically has to contend with a few outmatched security guards, which makes the heist feel way too easy. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5.5/10 77% Batman Ninja (2018) This take wasn't for me, but there's a lot to admire about this effort if for no other reason than shaking up the Batman animated movie formula and trying something different.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7.5/10 40% Anon (2018) An unsatisfying final act spoils some of the fun, but Anon is an otherwise engaging effort and worth checking out on Netflix. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8/10 70% Ibiza (2018) One of those movies that's going to appeal to anyone who believes in true love... or simply acted like a straight fool on vacation with their buddies.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8/10 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) If anything, Solo proves the spin-off side is far more daring, creative and respectful for fans who don't want their Star Wars memories treated like Bantha poodoo.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) After the heaviness of Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2 arrives just in time to pants the comic book movie genre with more hilarity and craziness than before.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

2/10 0% Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018) If you're hungry for a good zombie homage to Romero's work, look no further than Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead. Bloodline is just plain rotten.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 67% Candy Jar (2018) Candy Jar is a surprisingly sweet and touching teen romance drama that goes down easy and had me craving seconds. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6.5/10 21% Terminal (2018) Undoubtedly one of 2018's best looking films. It's visually stunning with mesmerizing cinematography, but lacks enough substance to match its dazzling looks.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

1/10 No Score Yet Cartel 2045 (2018) This is a lot more money and a better execution of its intriguing premise away from being a very enjoyable B movie.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 1, 2018
2/10 17% Supercon (2018) There's a need for a snarky, cynical look at the con experience from the inside. Supercon could have been that film, but it went too low-brow to deliver on its potential.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

10/10 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) I'm breaking my rating scale for this one as this is the kind of crazy ambitious film that should be impossible to make this captivating, spectacular and memorable. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6.5/10 No Score Yet Who's Jenna? (2016) Isn't perfect, but it's got its heart in the right place and with better than the norm performances and a compact 95-minute run time, the film doesn't overstay its welcome.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2018
3/10 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Truth or Dare had potential to be just engaging as Happy Death Day, but loses its nerve and heart midway through.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 50% 4/20 Massacre (2018) Skip the puff and just pass on this if you're not a devoted slasher fan.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
7/10 72% The Ritual (2017) While it doesn't hold up logically thanks to some confusing plot twists, The Ritual is an effective thriller that will keep viewers on edge.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 No Score Yet Killing Joan (2018) Ultimately it falls victim to not enough funding and a script that needed another pass to get right. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 16% Mute (2018) One of those frustrating movies that starts off well and gradually goes off the rails. And after a two hour investment, it delivers a spectacularly underwhelming payoff. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
10/10 73% Ready Player One (2018) Worth the hype and is definitely one of the appointment films worth seeing so far in 2018.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6.5/10 35% When We First Met (2018) Romantic comedy vets will be able to figure out the ending early on. While it's predictable, the destination eventually makes the journey worthwhile and rewarding.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

2/10 43% Attack of the Southern Fried Zombies (2017) You're probably going to need some level of inebriation to remotely enjoy this one. Otherwise it's best to leave this undercooked zombie comedy to rot.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 No Score Yet LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash (2018) DC Comics Super Heroes The Flash proves other Justice League members can be just as much fun in this setting as Batman. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
5/10 49% Tomb Raider (2018) For Vikander's sake, I hope a sequel does come around provided the script discovers a buried chest of quality writing.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
7/10 75% Prodigy (2018) An encouraging initial effort and suggests that they could be filmmakers worth keeping an eye on over the next five years.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
8/10 40% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle in Time might not be for everyone, but for those who can appreciate it for exactly what it is, they're going to really enjoy one of the year's most creative films.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/10 18% Death Wish (2018) Death Wish is a poorly timed rebuttal. And a pretty lousy one at that.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
1/10 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Kevin Feige and the rest of the Marvel Studios crew can rest easy in that Red Sparrow didn't beat them to making a great Black Widow movie.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 45% The Star (2017) Successfully helps to fill that Christian focused Christmas movie void with a fun adventure for children with a message that will resonate with parents.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 64% The Cured (2018) The Cured is an easy recommendation for genre fans and for those who want a lot more brains in their zombie films.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
5/10 8% 7 Guardians of the Tomb (2018) It's not awful as far as B movies go, but it never quite manages to become entertaining enough to warrant a recommendation either.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2018
9/10 86% Operation Red Sea (2018) Basically every great, good and decent war movie rolled into one amazing must-see spectacle.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
7.5/10 91% Kickboxer: Retaliation (2018) Isn't trying to change the action movie game or shake up the martial arts sub-genre. It's just a simple, easy to digest film with a slew of incredible fight scenes.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
