Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/5 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) It might please a younger audience that's new to the genre, but for those of us who've seen these films come out every year since "The Hunger Games," the air around these young adult films continues to stagnate.‐ MediaMikes

4/5 99% Eighth Grade (2018) My experience with this film was like the first time I watched Burnham's stand-up. It was something I had seen before, but it felt new because of how personal and forward it was.‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) This film is like a palate cleanser after the dark end to "Infinity War." Rudd, in the role of dad and hero, is undeniably likable as he charms both the good and bad guys.‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) This film is like a palate cleanser after the dark end to "Infinity War."‐ MediaMikes

1.5/5 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The film treats the audience like a Marvel movie crowd, expecting us to have kept track of every idiosyncratic character, name, place and word.‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 55% Tag (2018) There's a lot of manic energy in "Tag," sometimes culminating into some funny chase sequences and absurd action pieces.‐ MediaMikes

2.5/5 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) There are a few things that work in "Hotel Artemis," and in much better hands, it would have been an unforgettable film.‐ MediaMikes

4/5 62% Victor Crowley (2017) I can't give too much away because "Victor Crowley" is meant to be experienced instead of hearing my pitch as to why you should see it.‐ MediaMikes

3/5 100% Ruin Me (2018) Of course, it wouldn't be a true horror movie if something didn't go wrong, and things go south quickly‐ MediaMikes

2/5 88% Annihilation (2018) Throughout "Annihilation," I kept putting off these nagging issues with the script and structure of the story in the hopes that the ending would provide a worthy payoff to some of my frustration.‐ MediaMikes

2/5 41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) The movie really doesn't work until the final act, after we've had to suffer through a lot of confusing tone changes, half-hearted story beats and dead end CGI spectacles‐ MediaMikes

2.5/5 71% Terrifier (2018) There's not much to the story and there's certainly not much to the plot. "Terrifier" is a vehicle for Damien Leone's crew to exhaust their violence and gore budget. ‐ MediaMikes

3/5 22% Midnight Sun (2018) "Midnight Sun" is a movie I would generally nitpick to death, but it managed to take me out of my sardonic element. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Visually, "Isle of Dogs" is one of Anderson's best. Narratively, it's sometimes deflating, but still overwhelmingly charming and loveable. ‐ MediaMikes

2.5/5 53% Rampage (2018) . But just like the old "Rampage" arcade game I played in my youth, I don't necessarily feel like I should ever revisit this one or reflect on it as anything more than a cash grab.‐ MediaMikes

2/5 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) Even if you enjoy yourself, you won't be quoting this film 17 years from now or asking for "Super Troopers 3."‐ MediaMikes

4.5/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) There's a surprising amount of emotion and laughs mixed into the film's bleakness and knockdown fights.‐ MediaMikes

2.5/5 53% 12 Strong (2018) "12 Strong" does a passable job telling a story about unsung heroes in the early days of that war, but there's the lingering feeling that the soldiers portrayed in the film deserved a much better retelling of their struggles. ‐ MediaMikes

2.5/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) It's unfortunate that one of the greatest actors to ever grace the silver screen will end his career on a less than memorable film. ‐ MediaMikes

3/5 57% The Commuter (2018) Without Neeson or director Jaume Collett-Serra, "The Commuter" would have certainly been a stumbling mess. ‐ MediaMikes

2.5/5 50% Downsizing (2017) "Downsizing" may be a fun movie to discuss after watching, but that doesn't necessarily translate into an entertaining film. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 84% Darkest Hour (2017) Underneath heavy makeup, Oldman is able to capture Churchill's warmth, impatience, generosity and unpredictability. ‐ MediaMikes

3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" is a passable film, but it doesn't make the case for a potential franchise or another sequel. ‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Del Toro's "Beauty and the Beast" take for adults hits and misses in its third act when everything comes crashing together. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) "The Disaster Artist" is a film where you have to continuously remind yourself that the characters portrayed on-screen are real people and that the events that transpired actually happened. ‐ MediaMikes

4.5/5 97% Coco (2017) Coco" takes a while to get going, but once it does, it manages to hit every high note along the way. ‐ MediaMikes

4.5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) For a film with such dark thematic content, like rape, murder, racism and hatred, there's a lot of witty dialogue and wicked humor. ‐ MediaMikes

2/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) One of the most impressive ensemble casts of the year seems lost in sweeping CGI landscapes and overstuffed set pieces. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Hela may be the blueprints needed for a Marvel universe in sore need of a compelling, yet dangerous villain.‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 63% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Most of "Goodbye Christopher Robin" is mired in turmoil, with happy moments and achievements sprouting up few and far between. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 93% A Silent Voice (Koe no katachi) (2017) Despite clocking in over two hours, "A Silent Voice" is a brisk journey through high school drama and emotional maturity. ‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 86% American Made (2017) For historians, "American Made" is pulpy trash, glorifying a drug smuggler turned informant, but for everyone else it's a funny and entertaining take on a biographical crime tale. ‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) The action isn't entertaining in the traditional sense, but in a fun, manic Saturday morning cartoon kind of way. ‐ MediaMikes

1.5/5 33% Home Again (2017) The only thing missing from "Home Again" is a canned laugh track, applause and other phony audience reactions. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 91% Good Time (2017) h neon light bathes the dark New York City night as the film soaks up a matching retro soundtrack from the 80's. ‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 50% The Glass Castle (2017) There are predictable beats, but the film throws a few curveballs and avoids several cliché moments, settling for a more genuine dramatic effect. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 96% Step (2017) "Step" is a wonderfully engaging documentary about perseverance against insurmountable odds. ‐ MediaMikes

3/5 78% Atomic Blonde (2017) There's plenty of exposition to munch on, but nothing clear or meaningful. ‐ MediaMikes

4/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) "The Big Sick" modernizes the rom-com genre while blending coming-of-age elements and cultural clashes.‐ MediaMikes
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2017
2.5/5 78% The Beguiled (2017) I'm usually one to defend the necessity of a remake, for bringing classic stories to modern audience, but "The Beguiled" isn't one of them. ‐ MediaMikes
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2017
4.5/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) Clocking in at nearly two hours, "Baby Driver" is never dull and rarely lets its foot off the gas.‐ MediaMikes
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2017
3/5 45% Rough Night (2017) I'm reminded of "Bad Moms" as I reflect on "Rough Night" because it appears the raunchy comedy playing field is beginning to even out. ‐ MediaMikes

3.5/5 87% It Comes At Night (2017) There isn't a lot of small-talk or meaningful conversation between characters in "It Comes at Night." ‐ MediaMikes
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2017
3.5/5 87% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) There is some clever wordplay and sight gags for astute viewers. But the majority of fun is from the student and teacher caricatures populating Jerome Horowitz Elementary. ‐ MediaMikes

3/5 46% Everything, Everything (2017) "Everything, Everything" is smart for recognizing that teen conversations no longer come in the form of passed notes, lengthy late night phone calls or basic interpersonal dialogue. ‐ MediaMikes

2/5 31% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) For those who've read, studied, or are even fans of Arthurian legend, "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" isn't for you. ‐ MediaMikes

2.5/5 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) "The Fate of the Furious" is an entertaining distraction that tragically relies more heavily on its slow storytelling pace, rather than its edge of your seat action. ‐ MediaMikes
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2017
3/5 75% The Void (2017) The storytelling is suspect. It's a Frankenstein of nearly all body horror films from the 80's, like "Hellraiser," "The Thing," "Re-Animator," and "Night of the Demons." ‐ MediaMikes

1.5/5 46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) The movie sometimes chooses to be subtle with its character's traits, yet at other times slaps audiences across the face with thick intelligence insulting exposition. ‐ MediaMikes

4.5/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Disney has effortlessly remade one of its greatest films. That in itself should be commended because of the power that "Beauty and the Beast" still holds for old and young fans of the Disney brand. ‐ MediaMikes
