94% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) McDormand commands the screen and plays her audience like a fiddle, stroking our outrage, tugging at our heartstrings, and coaxing screams of reckless laughter.‐ Nerdist

81% Mayhem (2017) This movie has a mean streak a mile wide... And on top of that, there's a overgenerous supply of juvenile and sexist nonsense.‐ Pajiba

92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Full of action, laughs, and spirited fun, Thor: Ragnarok is a fine Marvel movie. But lacking a heaving heart, it's a disappointing Waititi offering.‐ CBR

100% Rift (Rökkur) (2017) (It offers) a heady blend of love and pain that makes Rift feel like Call My By Your Name meets It Comes At Night.‐ Pajiba

5% Flatliners (2017) To their credit, the cast tries to bring some life ...but a script with all the depth of a baby pool cannot be saved. ‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Robinson gives us a proudly queer romance that's an absolute crowd pleaser, and easily one of the best films of the year.‐ CBR

81% Mom & Dad (2017) I'd never thought I'd call a Brian Taylor movie "surprisingly tame". And yet here we are.‐ Pajiba

1.5/5 88% 1922 (2017) Bled dry of suspense and true horror, 1922 is a dismal affair. Perhaps Hilditch was aiming for slow-burn horror, but all he mustered was a patience-trying bore.‐ Nerdist

A 90% Gerald's Game (2017) "Gerald's Game" is a symphony of suspense and scares, spiked with just the right amount of gruesome gore. ‐ The Playlist

65% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Even in a movie that's meant to explore Abdul's role in the last days of Victoria's reign, he is an abstraction, pleasant but unknowable. ‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
88% Thelma (2017) Though billed as a thriller, Thelma is more slow-burn horror, a monster movie with a wounded but human heart at its core. ‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) In trying to hewn so closely to its recipe for success, the sequel is similarly amusing, but nowhere near as surprising or exhilarating. The thrill is gone.‐ CBR

82% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) The Villainess is an ambitious, exhilarating, and harrowing film that does South Korea's tradition of top-notch thrillers proud.‐ Riot Material

Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) It doesn't feel like a history lesson or a sermon. It feels like a conversation, laced with purpose and passion, but so generously sprinkled with charm, heart, and humor you might wish it'd never end.‐ Nerdist

32% Fun Mom Dinner (2017) What if you combined the premises of Bridesmaids and Bad Moms, but bled them dry of risque humor? This bland cocktail would be Fun Mom Dinner.‐ Pajiba
