85% The Sisters Brothers (2018) The Sisters Brothers transcends its genre roots to offer up something much more profound, as of course the best Westerns do.‐ Film Journal International

33% The Predator (2018) Occasional sparks of wit can't keep The Predator from being a muddled, befuddling mess.‐ Film Journal International

45% The Meg (2018) Is it a particularly great movie? No. Does it have some pretty major structural problems? Yes. Does Jason Statham fight a giant, prehistoric shark in it? Yes. Verdict: See The Meg. The Meg will cleanse your soul.‐ Film Journal International

17% The Darkest Minds (2018) [Runs] its cardboard characters through the paces of a plot we've all seen before, insufficiently imaginative to even attempt mixing up the formula.‐ Film Journal International

91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) LEGO Batman was a superhero comedy, too, but at least it felt like a movie instead of a series of hastily chopped-together shorts. ‐ Film Journal International

83% Microhabitat (So-gong-nyeo) (2017) Emotionally complex and bittersweet.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
58% Under the Silver Lake (2019) Wild, wooly, riveting.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
94% CAM (2018) Unfortunately, a solid premise can only carry a film so far, and Goldhaber fails to deliver on Cam's potential. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
100% Amiko (2018) An uncompromising, original coming-of-age film.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
58% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Unfriended: Dark Web doesn't deserve your faves or your retweets. Instead, it's a regrettably stupid horror sequel that was better left in the drafts folder.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
53% The First Purge (2018) The film does mix up the formula in some ways. Unfortunately, these changes are by and large for the worse.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
100% Half the Picture (2018) A platform for those who want to hear about the reality of being a woman in Hollywood from dozens of women who have lived it, it's an invaluable resource.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo doesn't break new ground, but with an adventure this fun, that's just fine.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Enjoyable but empty, Avengers: Infinity War embodies the humdrum side of the MCU. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
15% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Truth or Dare is toothless, derivative and predictable from the first scene to the last.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Be prepared to fall asleep whenever [Scott] Eastwood is onscreen.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
45% The Hurricane Heist (2018) The Hurricane Heist is a ridiculous movie, but in a way that takes itself completely seriously, which is what makes it great. That's the hallmark of Rob Cohen's genius. ‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
40% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) The team behind Prey at Night is great at building tension and atmosphere-one only wishes they knew how to deliver a payoff.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
97% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther succeeds at being emotionally resonant in a way a lot of Marvel movies-a lot of blockbusters, period-don't. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
76% Before We Vanish (Sanpo suru shinryakusha) (2018) Kiyoshi Kurosawa weaves a handful of stranger-in-a-strange-land tropes together in new and interesting ways in the darkly comic alien-invasion drama Before We Vanish.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) One hour and 47 minutes of cheap jump scares and dull grinding of gears.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Nothing less than the smartest, most nuanced, most ambitious Star Wars film ever made.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
91% The Disaster Artist (2017) Painful, but it's positive, too. It's walking that line that takes The Disaster Artist beyond cringe comedy to an unexpectedly touching tribute to a 21st-century icon.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2017
94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) One of the best performances of the year toplines Sebastián Lelio's stirring drama of grief and identity.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
13% Geostorm (2017) It's such a harmless nothing of a movie that being being bounced around in my seat and sprayed in the face with water was actually pretty fun. And it kept me from falling asleep, besides. Geostorm is the perfect 4D movie. Put it on the poster.‐ Pajiba

88% Kills on Wheels (Tiszta szívvel) (2017) Director Attila Till subverts expectations with a dark crime comedy more about its characters' inner lives than blood and body counts.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
71% Happy Death Day (2017) Happy Death Day is stupid, but not in the fun way. ‐ Pajiba

86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Wonder Woman gets a real-life origin story in the bold, compassionate, sexy Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Does Battle of the Sexes break new ground in terms of cinematic form? No. But it's an exceedingly well-done film... ‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
34% American Assassin (2017) With American Assassin, Michael Cuesta (Kill the Messenger) has made a movie where Michael Keaton bites Taylor Kitsch's ear off unspeakably boring.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
56% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) Though suffering from diminishing returns, the LEGO franchise still has some spark.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Vaughn has crafted a film that's stylish and amusing and makes wonderful use of Elton John, and that's not something every director can manage.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
85% It (2017) The great comeback of Pennywise the killer clown is scary and surprisingly fun.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
9% Tulip Fever (2017) I don't want to make Tulip Fever sound more interesting than it is. It's not bad enough to fall into "so bad it's good territory."‐ Pajiba

38% Death Note (2017) Adam Wingard's manga adaptation about a teen terror and his killer book does a half-decent job of embracing its weirdness.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
87% Wind River (2017) If nothing to write home about, it's still not awful. You could catch this on HBO and be pretty impressed. ‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Not gonna lie to you: I wasn't expecting to like Annabelle: Creation.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
8% The Emoji Movie (2017) No matter how bad you expected The Emoji Movie to be, believe me when I tell you, from the bottom of my heart, that it is so much worse.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
79% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk check in with climate crusader Al Gore in this effective, if too loosely structured, doc.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Charlize Theron is a Stoli-swilling superspy extraordinaire in David Leitch's worthy follow-up to John Wick. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2017
92% Dunkirk (2017) It is a good movie. One bordering on great, even. The best movie Christopher Nolan's done in years... and I say that as someone who likes (most, sorry The Dark Knight Rises) Nolan movies.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
100% The Girl Without Hands (La Jeune fille sans mains) (2017) Visually innovative fairytale adaptation should appeal to fans of experimental animation. ‐ Film Journal International

79% The Beguiled (2017) I love this movie.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
86% Okja (2017) As in Snowpiercer and The Host, Bong presents a dangerous world where people at all stages on the moral spectrum just have to do their best to survive. There are no easy victories or pat solutions.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) If War of the Planet of the Apes doesn't take the summer blockbuster to new heights, it's still an exceptionally well-crafted film. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
45% Rough Night (2017) It's not as funny as recent comedy hits like Spy, Shame, or Scott Pilgrim, but it'll do the job if you're looking for a boozy night out with the ladies.‐ Pajiba
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
87% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes at Night is a masterpiece of subjective storytelling. ‐ Film Journal International
