4/5 80% Apostle (2018) While nothing is as virtuosic here as in The Raid movies, Apostle is nevertheless a satisfying, gory, and strange trek into religious terror.‐ Nerdist

4.5/5 72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Bad Times at the El Royale is a tremendous work of popular cinema and is smart and innovative to boot.‐ Nerdist

4/5 100% Wolfman's Got Nards (2018) There's so much to cover, and Gower and his crew do an astounding job of being as thorough as possible.‐ Nerdist

3.5/5 93% Shadow (2019) While it does reach the heights of earlier Zhang, it hits its target and gives audiences a morality play with a brutal sense of humor.‐ Nerdist

4/5 95% Widows (2018) It's not a feel-good movie, it's a think-good movie.‐ Nerdist

30% Venom (2018) It gets the job done, has a couple of decent laughs, some passable action, and a fascinatingly buggy central performance.‐ Nerdist

89% Tales From the Crypt (1972) Tales from the Crypt is a wholly successful portmanteau horror film that delights in changing things up with each story.‐ Nerdist

60% The Legend of Hell House (1973) The performances and script of this movie are all top notch, but what really makes this movie one of my favorites in the subgenre is its direction by Hough.‐ Nerdist

4/5 85% The Sisters Brothers (2018) The cast is excellent across the board, but Reilly is truly the heart and soul of the movie.‐ Nerdist

3/5 60% Operation Finale (2018) The story at hand is absolutely remarkable and worth bringing to the screen, but it lacks a uniqueness in the method of storytelling that would really make it stand out.‐ Nerdist

3.5/5 76% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2018) A sweaty, tough movie, and one that plumbs the depths of characters' greed and desires more than simply showcasing surreal and sexy Italo-horror tropes.‐ Nerdist

98% Chimes at Midnight (1965) It feels much more like an experimental film than it does a typical Shakespeare adaptations.‐ Nerdist

4/5 83% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2018) Despite its title, The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot is a remarkably simple movie.‐ Nerdist

4/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) I think "Oh, gosh, do we need another one of these?" And then I see that movie and I say "Yes, of course, you idiot. Of course we need another one of these."‐ Nerdist

3/5 92% Nightmare Cinema (2018) The final two are so good and so strong I ended up walking away feeling good about the whole thing... Just maybe go get some popcorn when Father Benedict shows up.‐ Nerdist

2.5/5 53% The First Purge (2018) For all its usual unsubtleties, The Purge franchise mostly held a standard of storytelling that, sadly, The First Purge doesn't meet.‐ Nerdist

3.5/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Inconsequential, but damn, is it fun.‐ Nerdist

3.5/5 55% Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town (2018) An effective little indie with fantastic performances and a mostly effective structure. And it definitely won't feel like sitting in languorous L.A. traffic.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
2.5/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) And that's ultimately why Sicario: Day of the Soldado isn't as successful as the first film: it's trying to make action heroes out of characters whose sole purpose was meant to illustrate the evil required to battle evil.‐ Nerdist

4.5/5 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) I defy anyone to watch it without tearing up at least once.‐ Nerdist

2/5 86% Upgrade (2018) There's nothing wrong with executing a simple story effectively as long as there's something more to elevate it, but Upgrade can't quite do it.‐ Nerdist

4/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary is one of the most unsettling movies I've ever seen, and I couldn't sleep because of it.‐ Nerdist

4/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Designed to be safe, familiar, and smile-inducing.‐ Nerdist

3/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool is no longer the underdog making good, but the focal point of a very prolific franchise. And he kinda can't be that.‐ Nerdist

4/5 82% Ghost Stories (2018) Terrifying images, fantastic performances, and a satisfyingly weird ending.‐ Nerdist

3/5 53% Rampage (2018) Rampage is exactly the kind of knowingly ridiculous blockbuster spectacle we were hoping to get. ‐ Nerdist

4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) I left the cinema not wanting to make noise, for fear of the creatures getting me, and that's the mark of an effective horror movie if I ever heard it.‐ Nerdist

4/5 83% Game Night (2018) Game Night steadily gaslights the audience by making them think they're watching a hardened dark comedy when what they're actually watching is a very sweet, very believable relationship comedy. ‐ Nerdist

4/5 87% Annihilation (2018) This is smart, troubling science fiction, with a cast of supremely talented actresses, and [Natalie] Portman showing us a character full of turmoil bubbling under the surface.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
3.5/5 87% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) [Hiromasa] Yonebayashi has crafted a stunning movie with genuine heart and humor, and one of the grumpiest cartoon cats you've ever seen. ‐ Nerdist

4.5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) It's not a perfect movie by any means; some of the comedy is a little too silly and one or two of the plot threads feel a bit less important than the others, but these quibbles were minor when compared to the parts that work. Those REALLY work.‐ Nerdist

3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Quibbles aside, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the perfect, light holiday family movie. You eat some popcorn, have some laughs, and go back to your own jungle.‐ Nerdist

3/5 41% Justice League (2017) After a decade of Marvel dunking on them, DC has given fans a brilliant Wonder Woman movie and a perfectly fine Justice League movie in one year, and that's the first step to a braver and bolder cinematic future.‐ Nerdist

3.5/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) This is top to bottom Hemsworth's movie, and in his fifth time playing Thor, is at his very peak, and that's quite the heroic feat.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
3.5/5 63% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Goodbye Christopher Robin lives up to its rather bittersweet title, offering both a warm look at childhood and a reminder of how easy it is to grow up too fast. ‐ Nerdist

4.5/5 90% Gerald's Game (2017) Gerald's Game is an excellent piece of cinema, and proves that story and performance can overcome even the most 'unfilmable' source material.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2017
4.5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Blade Runner 2049 supersedes its predecessor in a number of ways, and is not only a brilliant sci-fi movie, but one of the best movies of the year.‐ Nerdist

3.5/5 53% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) I'd certainly be happy with more Kingsman movies, because [Taron] Egerton is a winning leading man and [Matthew] Vaughn's action direction remains fantastic, but this movie feels like a victim of its unanticipated success.‐ Nerdist

98% The Killer (1989) One of the best action films ever made.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
4.5/5 97% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2017) [In This Corner of the World] is a beautiful slice of life that feels at once completely relatable and wholly alien, in the best possible way.‐ Nerdist

3/5 48% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) I wish I could say that the performances didn't detract too much, but they sadly did. Even so, the visuals, action sequences, general storyline, and immersive experience of the 3D are enough to make me recommend people go see the movie.‐ Nerdist

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming is a soaring superhero adventure and is easily the best Spider-Man movie of them all.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
4/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Finally, with War, we see both sides becoming increasingly desperate, leading to an examination of which species truly is the most human. It's the absolute perfect end to this trilogy.‐ Nerdist

2/5 15% The Mummy (2017) Going in to Alex Kurtzman's inaugural Dark Universe outing, The Mummy, I had a lot of excitement. Excitement that was quickly dashed.‐ Nerdist

4/5 86% Paint It Black (2017) Tamblyn's work is incredibly self-assured for a first time director.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted May 15, 2017
4.5/5 83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) The action's great, the performances are top notch, and the soundtrack is killer. 2017's first Marvel movie is, impressively, one of the best sci-fi adventures you could hope to see. I defy anyone to watch this and not smile from beginning to end.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2017
3/5 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Still, the positives are incredibly positive and this franchise remains one of the most dumb-fun things you can hope to watch.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
4/5 68% Life (2017) A good, solid, scary sci-fi movie that knows exactly what it is but rises above it.‐ Nerdist
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
3.5/5 75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) It's certainly not a perfect movie, and a lot of the characters feel like sketches more than full fledged people, but it roars along enjoyably from start to finish.‐ Nerdist

4.5/5 93% Logan (2017) This is honestly one of the best comic book movies of all time.‐ Nerdist
