6/10 86% Werewolves Within (2021) It's not a bad way to spend the night, and it doesn't require a huge amount of personal investment. Silver bullets are totally optional; you do you, boo. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

7/10 74% Cruella (2021) Even if it answers questions about Cruella de Vil that nobody ever really had, this runway is all slay, all day. This is the glam slam villain jam we didn't know we needed. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

7/10 68% Army Of The Dead (2021) This is a surprisingly light and lean film that sees Snyder at his most creative...It might not ever reach its full potential, but it's never not interesting. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

8/10 98% The Mitchells vs. The Machines (2021) It's hilarious, it's beautifully-rendered, it's genuinely emotional, and it's just a blast from start to finish. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

7/10 55% Mortal Kombat (2021) [It] really, truly wants to get Mortal Kombat done Right, from its lore to its decapitations. It's far from a flawless victory, but it definitely wins the first battle. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 21% Thunder Force (2021) It might not leap any tall narratives in a single bound, but in the end it still saves the day in its own, relaxed way. Still super, even it if it's not spectacular. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 75% Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) If you're here for the kaiju kombat, you'll probably love most of the film. If you're here for the Monsterverse mythology, you're response might be a bit more mixed. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

8/10 94% Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) It more than qualifies itself as a new Disney masterpiece, a surprisingly mature exploration of grief and loss that's also a total sensory experience. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2021
8/10 90% The Vigil (2021) The core of The Vigil isn't the fear but the experience. This is a journey, not a thrill ride...It's nothing short of hypnotic. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

9/10 69% Space Sweepers (2021) The original Korean title translates as Spaceship Victory, and that's not only more appropriate, it's a perfect encapsulation of just what this film is: a victory. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2021
5/10 37% Outside the Wire (2021) It's competent if not spectacular, and there are enough set pieces to keep the energy flow consistent. The third act, however, goes completely off the rails. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2021
8/10 77% Shadow in the Cloud (2021) It's more than just a testament to the entertainment power of genre films. It's also a hell of a way to start 2021. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

7/10 59% Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) WW84 might lack the brightness and fire of the previous film, but it's often just as emotional and exhilarating an experience. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 50% The Midnight Sky (2020) It's a bit too earth-bound to reach the heights it needs to. But the attempt is something to be applauded, and its heart is definitely in the right place. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

7/10 70% Godmothered (2020) It's a heaping slice of angel food cake, all lightness and sweet even though it has zero nutritional value. But who eats angel food cake for nutrition? - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

3/10 31% Superintelligence (2019) I paused the film halfway to give my cat a pill. And truth be told, that was more exciting than anything on screen. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2020
8/10 90% The Dark and the Wicked (2020) Reminiscent of some of the best works of Stephen King, a tale of Americana wrought through with cultural, folkloric dread. This is a terrifying bit of natural light. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2020
4/10 48% The Craft: Legacy (2020) An afterthought of a film that's as evanescent as the cheap CGI glitter that accompanies the spellwork of the main characters. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2020
5/10 48% The Witches (2020) It's a hex in a Hallmark card when what you wanted was some good, old-fashioned black magic. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2020
7/10 93% Love and Monsters (2020) There's a warm, odd kind of comfort here...It's not 100% natural, but it's close enough to pass for it when it hits the brain like a pleasant memory. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2020
3/10 33% Death of Me (2020) Death To Me is a colossal waste of time...It's a train wreck served with cold, expired Thai noodles. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

4/10 16% Ava (2020) Chastain might have a future in action films ahead of her, and I fully believe she could play a convincing action hero, but girl, this ain't it. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2020
4/10 29% Antebellum (2020) It's disappointing enough to see a film not work on its own, but it's even worse when you can see what could have been in the middle of that. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

7/10 82% I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) Did I like it? I honestly still don't know. I may never... [but] there's a lot of talent involved here. At least that much I can say is objectively true. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2020
6/10 73% Mulan (2020) Loyal, brave, and true to the spirit of both the original animated film and the legend that inspired it, but doesn't always reflect the best qualities of either one. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2020
6/10 82% Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) It isn't heinous by any stretch of the imagination, but it isn't truly excellent, either. Sorry, dudes. Wyld Stallyns still rule, though. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2020
5/10 61% Project Power (2020) There is a good film hidden in here somewhere. Maybe the film should take a dose of its own pills and let it out for five minutes. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 92% Relic (2020) Even if it isn't as scary as it should have been, the compelling performances of its lead actors are worth the time...fascinating in both what it does and doesn't do. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Surge of Power: The Stuff of Heroes (2006) [It] lives very comfortably in its low-budget vibe. It'sself-aware and self-serious in roughly equal measures. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 50% Surge of Power: Revenge of the Sequel (2018) You might cringe at some moments, but you'll also probably laugh and maybe even have a good time. I'd watch this for 24 hours straight before watching Fan4stic ever again. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 48% Scoob! (2020) Does it have any nutritional value? Not a bit. Are there way too many ingredients? Oh, hell yes. But is it delicious and make you feel awesome? Damn right it does. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 30% Bloodshot (2020) Who is Bloodshot? What are the secrets of his past? Should we care? This seriously got a theatrical release and isn't a Netflix original? - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 63% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) It might sound surprising to say it, but Sonic the Hedgehog is actually a good time bordering on exciting. You know what? I'm not mad at it. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2020
8/10 79% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Birds of Prey is fun as hell. Kinetic, comedic, self-aware, and with just the right amount of R-rated brutality and grit. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

4/10 14% Dolittle (2020) The climax of Dolittle involves giving a dragon an enema, and I am not making that up. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

5/10 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Everything about it feels less like an upgrade and more like a retread. It's not so much an exciting new take on the previous film as it is an overpriced DLC pack. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2019
9/10 97% Knives Out (2019) Simply put, Knives Out is one of the best films of Rian Johnson's career, and one of the best mysteries in a very long time. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT

6/10 44% The Addams Family (2019) Like the Addamses themselves, the film comes of as well-meaning but more than a little off. Still, even a brief visit from the Addams is better than no visit at all. - Fanboys of the Universe EDIT
