Inferno (2016)

Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made (2016)

"The purity of intention surrounding the 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' remake caused me to re-evaluate such work. After all, telling the story again can throw light on something we might have missed." ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Blair Witch (2016)

"Sound effects editor Dan Kremer and his team hit the mark big time. In particular, hearing trees snap under extreme duress gives the impression that unseen forest giants are running amok." ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Don't Breathe (2016)

Lights Out (2016)

"Sadly, 'Lights Out' perishes under a flood of gushy exposition. In other words, solving the mystery proves the ultimate undoing." ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Suicide Squad (2016)

"While the Joker appears undernourished, individuals such as Harley Quinn (the constantly surprising Margot Robbie) and Deadshot (Will Smith) carry the film effortlessly. " ReelTalk Movie Reviews

The BFG (2016)

"Mark Rylance conveys joy and innocence as the Big Friendly Giant. His eyes, so expressively rendered via visual effects, come across as beaming fixtures of hope." ReelTalk Movie Reviews

The Shallows (2016)

"Technically, editor Joel Negron offers an intense display of his talents. This is editing with teeth." ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Year of the Dragon (1985)

"This film is packed with exquisite wide-angles by cinematographer Alex Thomson. However, peeling away the surface layers reveals scant storytelling. " ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Anomalisa (2015)

"The true genius here lies in clarity. It's rare - darn near unheard of - for animation to tap universal, mundane truths." ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Batman: Bad Blood (2016)

Halloween (1978)

" When Myers goes on the rampage, Carpenter doesn't shower the screen in blood-soaked expressionism. Admirably, suspense rather than gore informs his creative process. " ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Tremors 5: Bloodlines (2015)

"Why does 'Tremors 5: Bloodlines' seem so non-threatening? Perhaps madcap weapons expert Burt Gummer has truly 'run out of ammo.' " ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Everest (2015)

Terminator Genisys (2015)
