1/4 55% Martyrs (2008) Maybe I missed the point of the lesson.‐ Collider

57% Blade II (2002) Blade II is an incredibly upbeat picture, and rather than focus on Blade's loneliness or how he's humanity's protector and yet can never truly be one of them, del Toro gleefully jumps into the action scenes.‐ Collider

B- 88% First Man (2018) The attention to detail is astounding as we see not some pristine science project, but an endeavor held together by hope and will.‐ Collider

B+ 79% 22 July (2018) The challenge Greengrass presents is not about what makes us feel better, but what makes us better than those who would seek to do us harm.‐ Collider

B 60% The Oath (2018) Barinholtz has seized on our political moment to showcase the fragility of our country and how everything is just a few bad days away coming apart at the seams‐ Collider

B- 89% The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) The interesting ideas the script presents are left by the wayside in favor of watching one woman's self-destruction. With Gyllenhaal at the center, it's always captivating, but by the end, the experience feels more voyeuristic than illuminating.‐ Collider

A- 93% Mandy (2018) While you'll enjoy Cage's performance, you'll get lost in the marvelous movie that surrounds him.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
F 11% Life Itself (2018) The film views emotions in the same way a sociopath would-not as something to be felt, but something to be mimicked and manipulated.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
C+ 66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) While it may have some scares for its intended young audience, it largely falls flat for everybody else.‐ Collider

C 79% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Michael Moore wants to rally emotional support for a political revolution, but as always, he cares more about stunts than policy details. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
B 68% The Front Runner (2018) It's not only an enjoyable watch filled with terrific actors, but also that it's a movie that will have you talking afterwards. It has ideas that are worth discussing and still incredibly relevant. ‐ Collider

C 93% If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) You can see the broad outline of what Jenkins wanted to accomplish with If Beale Street Could Talk, but the inside is hollow.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
B+ 90% A Star Is Born (2018) Cooper has made a remarkably self-assured feature debut anchored by an outstanding lead performance from Lady Gaga. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
B- 65% Beautiful Boy (2018) While the film lacks narrative momentum, its heart is in the right place, and that's to show the havoc addiction wreaks on families and how those families have no answer for addiction.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
C 46% Outlaw King (2018) I don't expect Outlaw King to be 100% or even 50% historically accurate. But I do expect it to be interesting, and time and again the movie opts for the simplistic rather than the complex.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
B+ 96% To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) It's a smart, funny, sweet, winning movie, and I was constantly amazed by how much I enjoyed it.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
25% Mile 22 (2018) A deeply nihilistic and grotesque experience.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
B+ 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Jon M. Chu's movie shines brightest when it focuses on its characters and their relationships.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
C+ 45% The Meg (2018) There are some glorious highs in The Meg, and yet you always feel like it could go a little further, be more bonkers, shave off some of the runtime and go a little grislier with the chomping.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
C- 49% Like Father (2018) Like Father is not a good movie, but it at least has the courtesy to be fascinating in how it doesn't work at all.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
B 72% Christopher Robin (2018) It's simple, it's adorable, and it works.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
B 89% Set It Up (2018) Set It Up shows there's plenty of life left in the genre when you've got strong writing, sharp direction, and killer leads.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
B 100% Rewind This! (2013) Johnson has created a movie that mostly kept me riveted and highly entertained. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
B 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) I know why I shouldn't like The Equalizer 2, and yet I'd be thrilled if they ended up churning out a new Equalizer movie every few years.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2018
D 46% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper is the action movie at its most generic, but not at its most fun. It should be a movie that gives us larger-than-life action with a fanciful building and Johnson's charisma, but instead it gives us neither.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
B 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The movie takes nothing, including itself, seriously, and just runs on as a nice caper with relatively low stakes and goofball humor.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
C 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) In some ways, Day of the Soldado is darker than Sicario, but it's darkness without purpose.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
B+ 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 remains fresh and fun, but also distinct from its predecessor.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
B 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) Hotel Artemis is a pulpy powder-keg anchored by Jodie Foster's excellent lead performance. ‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
B+ 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) It features glamorous celebrities having a ball as they plan an elaborate heist that will dazzle you not only with what's being stolen, but with how the crew managed to steal it...it doesn't break the mold as much as it remakes it in a new image.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
C 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo is technically a Star Wars movie, but it's one that has set pieces in place of a personality. It's a film whose base level is "fine". Despite some unique cinematography, Ron Howard's direction is staid, stolid, and completely without personality.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
2.5/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 offers a glorious sugar high, but that inevitably means it comes crashing back to Earth.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
B- 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) The movie is packed with fun banter and set pieces, but it's not really about anything, and the ending falls flat.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
C+ 34% I Feel Pretty (2018) This is a nice movie, but its message about self-improvement and confidence is only skin deep.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
3/5 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) On a first viewing Super Troopers 2 at least manages to avoid many of the pitfalls that harm other comedy sequels.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2018
A- 83% Blockers (2018) Blockers had me howling with laughter from start to finish, and it sets a high bar for other comedies this year.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
B 72% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One is a thrilling adventure, not a nostalgia parade.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
B+ 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Even if you want to ignore all the political aspects completely, you still have a lovely story about a dog and a boy going on an adventure. That always plays well.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
B+ 80% Unsane (2018) Unsane is an immediate and timely indictment of the voices we choose to listen to and which ones we ignore.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
C 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Pacific Rim Uprising is serviceable enough on its own terms, but can't help but feel like a pale imitation of the first movie.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
D 51% Tomb Raider (2018) Roar Uthaug's movie is a constant drag, always leaning into the seriousness of the story but rarely finding the joy in the journey.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
C+ 41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle in Time always feels discombobulated, eager to please a wide audience, but also trying to be a little weird and unique. That's an admirable goal, and I wish the movie had pulled it off.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
F 17% Death Wish (2018) Unlike the original Death Wish where violence ruins everything it touches, in the remake, it's a cure-all. Happiness is only a semi-automatic away.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
B- 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Rather than offering the escapism the spy genre usually provides, Francis Lawrence's film is a brutal plunge into a world of sexual assault and degradation.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
C 15% Mute (2018) Like Jones' divisive Warcraft, Mute is uncompromising. But compromise isn't the worst thing in the world.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
B- 83% Game Night (2018) Game Night is surprisingly fun, but the real standout is Jesse Plemmons' delightfully creepy performance.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
B 82% Early Man (2018) Although it plays by the standard beats of the sports comedy, Early Man scores thanks to Aardman's trademark charm and wit.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2018
F 12% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Perhaps the most damning aspect of these movies is that Christian Grey is a bad guy, and his toxic masculinity contaminates the entire picture.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
D 18% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) The Cloverfield Paradox may be a splash for Netflix, but it's a dud as a sci-fi thriller.‐ Collider
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2018
C- 64% Peter Rabbit (2018) Peter Rabbit would prefer to be cool rather than charming, and ends up being utterly forgettable.‐ Collider
