A+ 95% The Social Network (2010) A rare example of what can happen when a director, writer, cast, composer, and subject matter all work together perfectly. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

C+ 47% Captive State (2019) Captive State is two hours of connect-the-dots plot devices leading to a payoff that wants to be a twist, but ends up being an eye-roll. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

B+ 79% Captain Marvel (2019) Captain Marvel brings a fresh jolt of energy to the MCU. If Brie Larson doesn't win you over, the cat certainly will. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

A 91% How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) These movies just keep getting better and better. I hope they make at least 19 more of them. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

F 56% Minions (2015) This film should be prefaced by a warning message like you'd find on a pack of cigarettes... "BEWARE: Long-Term Exposure to the Minions Could Carry Serious Health Risks." - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

C 60% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) I don't feel one bit guilty for not enjoying 'Cyberpunk Rollerball' in 2019. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

B- 66% Vice (2018) The most disappointing part of Vice is that Bale's commitment to the role is wasted on a cheesy script that tries too hard to fit McKay's style instead of being tonally consistent. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2019
B 93% Bumblebee (2018) All of the Transformers films before this one have been steaming piles of poo. So the fact that this one is watchable means, by default, that it's the best Transformers film ever. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

B- 65% Aquaman (2018) Take one cliché from every comic book movie of the past decade, put them in a blender, then throw that blender into the ocean. Boom. You've got yourself an Aquaman movie. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

A- 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Spider-Verse is a lot of fun, but feels a bit more like an over-produced Saturday morning cartoon special than it does a cinematic experience. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

F- 15% Robin Hood (2018) At least it will make for a great "What Not To Do" lesson in a film class someday. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

A 91% Widows (2018) McQueen's Widows is thrilling, empowering, shocking and disturbing all at the same time, but in all the right ways. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2018
A- 84% Creed II (2018) Creed 2 doesn't pack as big of an emotional punch as its predecessor, but I just can't get enough of these characters. The Rocky nostalgia hasn't worn off yet, and this film proves that it won't any time soon. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

A+ 91% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) The Coens bring us their most gorgeous, visceral, and unpredictable film to date with Buster Scruggs. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

A- 85% It (2017) All I really want from my It movies is for Pennywise to be terrifying. Happy to report that this Pennywise is definitely terrifying. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

F--- 14% Geostorm (2017) Geostorm feels like it was filmed in 2002, put on a shelf for 15 years, and mistakenly released to the public by an intern who was trying to get fired. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2018
A- 90% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) I can't deny the performances throughout are stellar, but a better ending could have taken this film from good to great. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2018
F--- 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The Last Knight very well might be the worst movie in the history of cinema. It changes aspect ratios at least 500 times. Seriously. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
A 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) An epic conclusion to an epic trilogy that fully cements Serkis as the best motion capture performer for now and forever. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
A+ 92% Dunkirk (2017) This is a story that needed to be told in a way that only Christopher Nolan can bring, and his non-linear style only enhances my desire for multiple viewings. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
A 98% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick is hilarious, heartbreaking, and heartwarming all at the same time. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

A- 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) This will get at least a few more dozen movies from the 90s rebooted, and at least half of those will star either The Rock, Kevin Hart, or Jack Black. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
A 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Del Toro hits another grand slam with the production design, but the movie really wins because of it's honest approach. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

B- 19% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) The decision to make this a Cloverfield movie at the last minute didn't make the movie any better. In fact, it probably made it worse. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

D+ 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Considering this is an adaptation of a universally beloved novel, it's pretty staggering that none of it works in any way whatsoever. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
B- 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) It's unfortunately a slight step backward for the series instead of building on the success and fun of the original in a significant way. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

B 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) The movie's sole aim is to be a "Queen: Greatest Hits" crowd-pleaser, and ultimately, despite its flaws, it succeeds. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
A- 72% Ready Player One (2018) Perhaps the most compelling thing Ready Player One and the OASIS provides is the glimpse at our inevitable future. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018

Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
A- 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) The worlds that Wes Anderson creates are so much fun, and Isle of Dogs is about as fun as it gets. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
A 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Infinity War manages to live up to an insane amount of hype. These characters are just so fun to watch together on screen that I hope it never ends. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

A 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 manages to recapture and improve on all the fun, action, and ridiculousness that made the first film so charming. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

F- 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) A sequel to an awful movie, NYSM 2 is so bad that not even doubling the amount of Woody Harrelsons can fix it. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
