T-Meter Title | Year
8/10 90% Pet Sematary (2019) Pet Sematary is a fun and frightening film -- if by fun you enjoy seeing characters go to hell and back. - IGN Movies EDIT

6.8/10 50% The Curse of La Llorona (2019) It's certainly not the weakest movie in this series but it also doesn't necessarily bring as much new to the table as might have been expected given the compelling folklore the film borrows from. - IGN Movies EDIT

8.5/10 95% Springsteen on Broadway (2018) Springsteen on Broadway nicely showcases Bruuuuuuuce's artistry and deconstructs his self-created mythology even as it ultimately doesn't reveal as much about the man's own flaws and fears as it appears to in the moment. - IGN Movies EDIT

7.5/10 65% Aquaman (2018) The glee that director James Wan clearly has playing in the world of Aquaman is infectious. He's made a movie for both types of 10-year-olds: literal kids and those who are 10 at heart. - IGN Movies EDIT

7/10 93% Bumblebee (2018) It was nice to enjoy a Transformers movie again. - IGN Movies EDIT

6.7/10 51% Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018) It's intellectually intriguing and well-acted, but the inconsistent visual effects undermine the necessary suspension of disbelief... Still, it's a thoughtful and dramatic interpretation, which sets it apart from most incarnations of The Jungle Book. - IGN Movies EDIT

8/10 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) The sequel finds room to grow on the original film's premise by exploring not only a larger world beyond video games but also new and more complicated dimensions to the core friendship at the heart of these movies. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
7/10 40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) The Girl in the Spider's Web is a leaner, pulpier screen adventure for Lisbeth Salander, one that places her at the forefront while relegating journalist Mikael Blomkvist to second banana. - IGN Movies EDIT

7.3/10 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Bohemian Rhapsody is fun but entirely superficial, playing it safe rather than trying to be as bold or brazen as its larger-than-life subject. - IGN Movies EDIT

60% My Bloody Valentine 3-D (2009) Surprisingly fun slasher pic makes for a Bloody good time. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2018
8.3/10 75% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) An engrossing, well-made crime flick bolstered by several fine performances from its ensemble cast. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
9/10 79% Halloween (2018) While no entry in the franchise has surpassed the original film, this Halloween sequel is truly a cut above the rest and a great piece of horror entertainment even for those unfamiliar with the series. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
6.5/10 32% The Predator (2018) With its bawdy sense of humor, disorderly cast of characters, and hardcore kills and action, The Predator does a lot right to reinvigorate the 31-year-old series. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
7.4/10 62% Outlaw King (2018) Outlaw King is no Braveheart, but it's an engaging enough piece of swords & shields entertainment to add to your queue. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
5.9 92% The Death of Superman (2018) [It] continues the generic sameness in the animation quality of the mainstream DC animated films. They all look the same, move the same, have the same vibe -- they're all perfectly rote, with nothing to distinguish one entry from the next. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
7.7/10 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) It never quite improves upon or distinguishes itself from previous entries in the decades-old franchise, but seeing Tom Cruise perform the Impossible still entertains. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
7/10 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo: A Star Wars Story commits to being a charming and fun exercise in repackaging nostalgia and pre-owned protagonists. It's just too bad its script never fully committed to seeing through Han's arc ... to its preordained end. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
5.5/10 51% Rampage (2018) Rampage is utterly ridiculous, campy, yet also self-aware enough to be kinda sorta dumb fun. ... But even The Rock can only do so much when a movie's this absurd. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
7.5/10 88% Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay (2018) Not everything about Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay works, but the film's sense of humor, willingness to kill off key characters, and exploration of a spiritual subject matter make it worth a look-see. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2018
7.5/10 87% Annihilation (2018) Overall it's a bold undertaking that doesn't play it safe and features some strong performances. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
9/10 97% Black Panther (2018) Not everything about Black Panther works across the board but a huge amount of it does - and does so wonderfully. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
8.9/10 92% The Shape of Water (2017) It is poetic yet accessible, and earnest without being maudlin. Its biggest flaw is that its plot ultimately takes a surprisingly conventional route for such an otherwise unconventional Hollywood release. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
7/10 40% Justice League (2017) It's messy and flawed but it still offers enough entertainment value (mostly thanks to its likable characters) to make it worthwhile. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
7.7/10 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Thor: Ragnarok is a lot of fun, but its heart belongs to Planet Hulk and not the realm whose existence is at stake. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
7.5/10 86% American Made (2017) Featuring one of Tom Cruise's best performances in recent years, American Made is a darkly funny, dizzying crime film that nevertheless ultimately feels inconsequential and overly familiar. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
8.5/10 53% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Kingsman: The Golden Circle is as cheeky, cartoonish, and crazy as its predecessor, but it's also commendably unafraid to demolish what had come before it if it's in service of the story. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
6.8 out of 10 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Showcases plenty of cool creatures and ideas for sci-fi fans to savor, but if only the movie's central characters and their relationship were as exciting and interesting as all that impressive eye candy. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
8.7/10 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Tom Holland's Spidey can't swing back onto screens again fast enough. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
7.0 out of 10 70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Annabelle: Creation is the rare horror sequel that improves upon the original, featuring more engaging protagonists and a far less problematic ending. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2017
7/10 76% Becoming Bond (2017) The charming, skillful storyteller George Lazenby himself is the best reason to watch Becoming Bond. The reenactments, while often funny and involving, simply can't hold a candle to the man and his anecdotes. - IGN Movies EDIT

6.0 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) I left the theater relieved that Dead Men Tell No Tales is better than the last Pirates movie and also hoping that this IS the last Pirates movie. - IGN Movies EDIT

8 out of 10 68% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The Fate of the Furious provides plenty of the high-octane escapism and ridiculously elaborate vehicular mayhem fans of the series expect. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2017
5.9/10 17% CHIPS (2017) Ultimately, there's nothing about CHIPS that makes it distinct or particularly memorable, and the only real reason why the movie even exists seems to be because it is recognizable IP to a segment of the public over a certain age. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
7.5 out of 10 35% Live By Night (2017) Ben Affleck's Live by Night has great action and intriguing drama, but simply bites off too much to chew. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
8.5 out of 10 80% Patriots Day (2017) The powerful docudrama Patriots Day is a salute to the better angels of human nature. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
7.3/10 51% The Accountant (2016) Ben Affleck delivers a subtle, intriguing performance in The Accountant, a film that's as much a character study as it is a showcase for gun battles and hand-to-hand combat. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
8.8 out of 10 88% Don't Breathe (2016) "One of the most twisted movies you'll see this year." - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2016
8.5 out of 10 83% Sausage Party (2016) Sausage Party is an equal opportunity offender, but if you can stomach that you'll find a movie with a lot of heart and big ideas to ponder. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2016
5.5 out of 10 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) Laden with a significant amount of historical and racial baggage, The Legend of Tarzan proves a dopey adventure film with unremarkable performances and some lousy VFX. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2016
5.8 out of 10 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) Not even new characters inspired by Frozen and Brave can save The Huntsman: Winter's War from being a predictable bore. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2016
7.8/10 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Featuring what's arguably the best ever screen depiction of Spider-Man as well as a cool new hero in Black Panther, Captain America: Civil War can't quite recapture the emotional and cerebral strengths of its predecessor. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2016
6.8 out of 10 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Those expecting BvS to be DC's answer to Marvel's Avengers will find it more akin to Snyder's Watchmen instead. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2016
8.5 out of 10 78% Keanu (2016) Key & Peele's Keanu succeeds as both an action movie and a buddy comedy, and showcases an amazingly adorable cat. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2016
7.7/10 86% Hail, Caesar! (2016) Hail, Caesar! may not be one of the Coen Brothers' finest efforts, but it's nevertheless a fun, charming, and oft-hilarious take on Hollywood's Golden Age. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2016
7.0 out of 10 64% The Finest Hours (2016) It's a good film, but one that never quite inspires in the way it could have. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2016
7.5 out of 10 51% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) Michael Bay succeeds in making a film for grownups with the tautly told and respectful 13 Hours. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2016
9.5/10 74% The Hateful Eight (2015) Armed with vicious humor and an intense story, Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is as brutal in its insights into race relations and human nature as it is in its depiction of violence and the Wild West. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2015
8.6 out of 10 88% The Big Short (2015) Ultimately, this is Adam McKay's show and his bitter contempt for how the whole thing got so out of control informs every facet of this self-aware and often hilarious diatribe. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2015
9/10 78% The Revenant (2015) A stunning-looking and daring filmmaking endeavor, The Revenant brings one of the Old West's greatest legends to cinematic life with utter ferocity and complete conviction from its cast. - IGN Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2015
7.2/10 76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) Pixar's mantra has always been story first, and they've managed to salvage every one of their troubled productions, but in the case of The Good Dinosaur you can definitely feel the machinery straining to pull it off one more time. - IGN Movies EDIT
