T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 17% Hellboy (2019) A soulless, noisy mess of a movie that has far more in common with lesser Underworld or Resident Evil sequels than it does with the work of Guillermo del Toro or Mike Mignola. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 45% Captive State (2019) It feels at times like Captive State is just a collection of scenes that don't flow one to the next, but rather just happen. - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) It's the kind of achievement that brings to mind the adjectives usually attached to Spider-Man comic books. Amazing. Spectacular. Sensational. - Den of Geek EDIT

1/5 15% Robin Hood (2018) Guy Ritchie's insufferable King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is John Boorman's Excalibur by comparison. Fortunately, Robin Hood is a whole 10 minutes shorter. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 81% Overlord (2018) If watching a Nazi's head explode after a grenade is stuffed in his mouth isn't worth the price of admission, well, then you and I just have very different ideas about what a good time at the movies is worth. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 92% The Death of Superman (2018) It's a big win for Superman fans, finally giving them the adaptation of this tale that they've long craved, and one that sacrifices neither the violence nor the humanity that offsets it. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 88% Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay (2018) I'm not sure what lessons the beleaguered DCEU could learn from a movie like this, but Hell to Pay is the best Suicide Squad adaptation yet. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 75% Braven (2018) Braven never truly goes for it. Its devotion to its slow build makes you think that the violent payoff you're waiting for is going to be more over the top than it actually is. - Den of Geek EDIT

80% Godzilla: Monster Planet (2017) Beautifully animated, with a lush color palette and inventive, space opera influenced designs, Planet of the Monsters does what all the best reboots do. - Den of Geek EDIT

No Score Yet Scooby-Doo! and Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2017) It's a little longer than it needs to be, but that's all easy to excuse when the rest of it is so genuinely funny, and made with such love for Scooby and the DC Universe. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 26% Bright (2017) Bright never lives up to the potential of its high-concept, but it's still a fun B-movie diversion that will play well enough during any Saturday afternoon Netflix session. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 64% The Foreigner (2017) It's kind of a shame that The Foreigner is such a chore. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 77% Cult of Chucky (2017) I never would have taken the bet that the seventh film in the franchise would be one of its best, but here we are. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 35% American Assassin (2017) American Assassin at times has the necessary ingredients to make it the kind of fun, pulpy political thriller/action movie that audiences feasted on in the 1990s, but it manages to forget to have any fun at all along the way. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet David Gilmour: Live in Pompeii (2017) David Gilmour Live at Pompeii is acutely aware of how it must deal with history, and in its best moments it's a reverent and surprisingly moving concert film. - Den of Geek EDIT

2/5 24% Birth of the Dragon (2017) Trying to get the audience to care even a little about any character not named Bruce Lee or Wong Jack Man is a losing battle. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 42% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) It's exactly what it says on the label, which usually works in its favor except when it doesn't. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 93% Endless Poetry (Poesía Sin Fin) (2017) Endless Poetry captures the nocturnal essence of being young, on your own for the first time, and surrounded by friends who inspire you to pursue your dreams. - Den of Geek EDIT

2/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) To be fair, The Last Knight is about 15 minutes shorter than its predecessor. But it still somehow manages to feel even longer. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 49% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Longtime Power Rangers fans will genuinely love this movie, which never resorts to self-mockery and (villain problems aside) doesn't talk down to its audience. - Den of Geek EDIT

2/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) There's not much here to entice non-fans, and there's probably too much static to please the purists. - Den of Geek EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2017
94% Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders (2016) Return of the Caped Crusaders should give DC animation fans hope, and fits nicely with some of the best work they've done since they launched. - Den of Geek EDIT
