3/10 15% 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 No Score Yet 4/20 Massacre (2018) Skip the puff and just pass on this if you're not a devoted slasher fan.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 70% 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 15% 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

10/10 74% 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 39% 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 50% 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

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

7/10 82% 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

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

3/10 17% Death Wish (2018) Death Wish is a poorly timed rebuttal. And a pretty lousy one at that.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

1/10 48% 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 62% 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

5/10 0% 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

9/10 83% Operation Red Sea (2018) Basically every great, good and decent war movie rolled into one amazing must-see spectacle.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

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
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
10/10 96% Black Panther (2018) That's the sound of the game being changed and everyone is going to have to follow the King. This should signal a major change to the superhero film landscape for years.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
6/10 83% Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (2018) A decent addition to the Warner Animation ranks, but there's enough changes that fans of the original story might be disappointed it strayed so far from the source material.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 16% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) As a big fan of Alien, I really enjoyed this... to a point. Then the second half left me thinking of the Geico commercial with the fisherman saying 'oooh you almost had it.' ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 55% Bilal: A New Breed of Hero (2018) Despite some flaws, this is an engaging film with an uplifting and encouraging message. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Charming, funny and feels completely untainted with modern cynicism in a desperate attempt to be edgy and relevant.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 73% Mom and Dad (2018) This premise is a hard sell, but with more dialogue and less extreme rage, Taylor could have found a better lane for his idea. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6.5/10 54% 12 Strong (2018) A war film carefully designed to check off all the requirements of the genre without going deep enough in the ones that matter most.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2018
5/10 57% The Commuter (2018) Picture a less suspenseful, dumber and overall ill-conceived rip-off of Non-Stop and you've got The Commuter. Even Liam Neeson appears underwhelmed.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
8/10 No Score Yet Virtual Revolution (2016) For a lower budget film, this is a very creative and enjoyable effort that plays out like a throwback sci-fi movie. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
8/10 82% Molly's Game (2018) Molly's Game is very enjoyable thanks to the stacked deck of Chastain, Elba and Sorkin.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
7/10 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) For franchise fans and haters, this more of the same - some decent scares, a couple of freak out moments and fun characters. It won't win over new fans, but won't disappoint.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

10/10 97% Coco (2017) Another Pixar masterpiece. It sits comfortably with Toy Story 3, Finding Dory and Inside Out as one of the best Pixar films this decade.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 26% Bright (2017) Not a terrible movie, but it's not original or fun enough to warrant the time commitment considering far better options just as readily available.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Dec 30, 2017
8/10 96% The Florida Project (2017) One of the year's most riveting, beautifully shot and well-acted films. It's a heartfelt look at the lives of the downtrodden. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2017
4/10 No Score Yet Miss Me This Christmas (2017) There's random moments of quality, but even by Christmas movie standards, Miss Me This Christmas is a misfire.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2017
8/10 59% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Despicable Me 3 doesn't reinvent the franchise, but proves there's plenty of fun and wackiness left and more than enough creativity left for future installments.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 99% Lady Bird (2017) It's that sense that Christine is still a work in progress that makes Lady Bird such an fascinating watch with enough intrigue to make a sequel viable.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 44% Bushwick (2017) By taking it seriously, the filmmakers end up calling more attention to every absurd moment. Movie wise, there's few things worse than a dumb action movie tries to be serious.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 52% The Boss Baby (2017) A very cute and charming film with an inspired take on sibling rivalry that will prove useful for parents informing their only child they're about to have some company.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
9/10 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) While not as accessible for general audiences as The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Batman Movie is a fan-pleasing effort that showcases everything that's awesome about The Dark Knight.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8.5/10 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Further makes the case that no one does fantasy on del Toro's level.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7.5/10 73% Gifted (2017) Gifted doesn't shake up the genre, but it's very well-acted and endearing. Sometimes that makes a movie special enough.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
