94% The Dark Knight (2008) The Dark Knight may not supply a happy ending, but there is a feeling of exhilaration as Batman rides off from the pursuing cops, and the realization that this is another big step forward for comic book movies.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 64% Peter Rabbit (2018) It's a bearable and often amusing form of entertainment for a Sunday afternoon with your entire family.‐ The Young Folks

8/10 85% It (2017) Despite a second part seemingly on the horizon, the film stands on its own as one of the stronger King adaptations brought to screen.‐ The Young Folks

1/10 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) If you're looking for a substitute viewing experience chock full of bright colors and erratic animation, you're better off staring at a smartphone for an hour and a half.‐ The Young Folks

3/10 37% Snatched (2017) Despite casting two talented leads as a dysfunctional mother/daughter duo, Snatched feels incredibly uninspired. The movie fails to rely on the endearing charm of Goldie Hawn or the sporadic and spontaneous humor of Amy Schumer. ‐ The Young Folks

2/10 8% Rings (2017) Rather than emphasizing the dangers of technology, Rings warns of the worst case scenarios for unnecessary sequels. ‐ The Young Folks

2/10 36% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) Hopefully, this is the last film in the series because sitting through this made the whole affair feel like a mercy killing. ‐ The Young Folks

2.5/10 21% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) Too soulless to recommend and too serious to have a good time with, Blood Wars is yet another uninspired installment in a flat saga.‐ The Young Folks

8/10 71% Bleed For This (2016) Bleed For This is both cinematic and interesting without losing sight of the man from Rhode Island who wore the gloves.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 59% Allied (2016) For all the admirable technical aspects, the core emotion the film desperately wants to convey is too distant.‐ The Young Folks

4/10 22% Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) Instead of running full force with the conceit, Perry's own directorial limitations hinder the finished product.‐ The Young Folks

2/10 15% Nine Lives (2016) No matter how little you move or how much you try to block it out, it still manages to be an unpleasant experience.‐ The Young Folks

0/10 3% The Darkness (2016) As a movie of any sort, it's entirely self-serving and exists solely to cash in on audiences desperate for any sort of horror film fix.‐ The Young Folks

8/10 59% Joy (2015) With a commanding performance by Jennifer Lawrence at the helm, Joy is a fascinating examination on never losing sight of the American Dream.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 65% Krampus (2015) I felt like it succeeded much more at being a horror/comedy than a spooky story about the dangers of Holiday cynicism.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 67% The Danish Girl (2015) The Danish Girl is two-thirds of a lavish but harmless period piece. The final thirty minutes or so descends into becoming a preachy and overly melodramatic statement.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 61% Legend (2015) Legend succeeds at being a showcase for Hardy's talent. Hardy is in top form here but the film around him is not quite up to snuff.‐ The Young Folks

3/10 34% By The Sea (2015) By the Sea, the third directorial effort by Angelina Jolie, feels like nothing more than a self-indulgent vanity project.‐ The Young Folks

1/10 14% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension hits creative rock bottom... The absence of legitimate suspense creates an atmosphere of unintentional comedy throughout.‐ The Young Folks

10/10 86% Steve Jobs (2015) Steve Jobs is a film that functions with the well-oiled synchronization of an orchestra... the end result is my favorite film of the year thus far.‐ The Young Folks

3.5/10 29% Burnt (2015) There's so many overdone tropes in Burnt that it's reminiscent of a tired out family recipe‐ The Young Folks

4/10 27% Pan (2015) Pan was two hours of eye candy in place of hollow storytelling. What could have been a unique spin on Peter Pan was replaced by a film overwhelmed by its own spectacle.‐ The Young Folks

3/10 24% 90 Minutes In Heaven (2015) Although it's centered around a fascinating true story, 90 Minutes in Heaven is plagued by an uneventful and padded out two hours.‐ The Young Folks

4/10 39% We Are Your Friends (2015) We Are Your Friends feels like a failed examination of the millennial generation. ‐ The Young Folks

2/10 9% Fantastic Four (2015) For having such a talented cast on paper, it's rather extraordinary how everyone seems either disinterested or sleep deprived. ‐ The Young Folks

9/10 92% The Gift (2015) While it is a suspenseful thriller through and through, The Gift is simultaneously a complex character study for all three of the principal leads. ‐ The Young Folks

7.5/10 59% Southpaw (2015) ...another outstanding performance by Jake Gyllenhaal... his physical transformation and intensity reaffirm his position as one of our finest actors working today. ‐ The Young Folks

6/10 82% Ant-Man (2015) It's certainly competent and amusing when need be, but not much more than that. ‐ The Young Folks
