Read More | Posted May 18, 2021
26% The Woman in the Window (2021) If it's agoraphobic-focused thrills you're after, you'd be better served seeking out 1995's Copycat or 2015's Intruders. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted May 17, 2021

Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2021

Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2021
75% Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Easily the best of the MonsterVerse so far, in large part because it's the first entry to understand that less time with human characters the better. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2021
83% Gaia (2021) A new entry into the ecohorror subgenre, but while it delivers memorable visuals and creature feature thrills it stumbles a bit with its conversation. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2021
74% Broadcast Signal Intrusion (2021) An atmospheric conspiracy thriller in need of one more script revision. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2021

Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2021
95% Breaking Away (1979) Part coming of age comedy, part underdog sports tale, and part glimpse into small-town America, the film is an effortless joy as it explores a tight friendship approaching the inevitable. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2021
49% Coming 2 America (2021) We still get some laughs thanks mainly to Wesley Snipes and Arsenio Hall, but the film lacks both bite and fresh wit. - Film School Rejects EDIT

74% Prisoners of the Ghostland (2021) Sion Sono's arguably got something to say here - he usually does - but his themes are typically far more successful when paired with more entertaining and/or thoughtful fare. - Film School Rejects EDIT

Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2020
45% Fatale (2020) If you must watch, pair it with The Hunt, and at least you'll get to enjoy an entertaining double feature of Hilary Swank turned all the way up to eleven. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2020
94% Hunter Hunter (2020) The ingredients are here for a traditional enough survival thriller, but the film goes in some unexpected directions on its way to a terrific and grimly powerful finale. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2020
46% Monster Hunter (2020) Epic video game action meets 1974's 'The Land That Time Forgot' in the latest from the director of 'Resident Evil.' It's fun even if it is in desperate need of a third act. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2020
