90% A Star Is Born (2018) Bradley Cooper directs this movie like he's doing just what he is, conducting and playing first chair at the same time, Gaga is a force of nature. She's a revelation in this movie of course, but [Cooper] also knows how to play directly into her strengths.‐ Screen Junkies

66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) At the end of the day, this is a movie that really strikes a remarkable balance and works at so many levels. ‐ Screen Junkies

33% The Predator (2018) It is so nonsensical, so chaotically structured. ‐ Screen Junkies

27% The Nun (2018) A very fragmented, tonally disjointed film. ‐ Screen Junkies

82% Chappaquiddick (2018) It's a story that reveals the troubles around extreme ambition and entitlement and the kind of life that one can lead to bring them to the belief that their life is mor important than another.‐ Screen Junkies

89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) This is a beautifully rendered and told story that is absolutely torturous, but delightfully torturous to watch.‐ Screen Junkies

84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) It's very well paced, it's very well balanced in terms of how it deals with the cahracters, but man is it action-packed!‐ Screen Junkies

97% Black Panther (2018) With Black Panther, [Coogler] took really, really strong material here and elevated it once again.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
83% Deadpool 2 (2018) This is a rare comedy sequel that not only is able to meet expectations of the original, but also expand on the world that was created and the characters that were created and give them surprisingly a little more depth.‐ Screen Junkies

93% Searching (2018) The metaphor for hiding, the metaphor for lying to ourselves, the metaphor for covering who we really are that exists in our online personas is so well played out in this movie...‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
89% Hereditary (2018) It builds the elements really beautifully, it orchestrally builds. You're really watching a family drama also with horror elements, then they really elevate.‐ Screen Junkies

86% Upgrade (2018) This movie ends in a way that I really enjoyed, and it opens up the door to a question...that I think is really relevant to how we use technology and how we feel about our own lives. ‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
99% The Tale (2018) You feel the presence of the real Jennifer Fox because she's directing it, and it's her story...It's a really fascinating, very difficult-to-watch movie. ‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
88% American Animals (2018) It's really worth seeing if you're just interested in film and how people can and do sometimes play with form, because [director Bart Layton] does it really well. ‐ Screen Junkies

94% Incredibles 2 (2018) This continues to be the 'fantastic four' that we deserve when we've been very good boys and girls. ‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) In terms of large pieces of plot or character reveals...not a lot happened in this movie that was shatteringly significant for the future of the MCU--until the post-credit scene.‐ Screen Junkies

71% Christopher Robin (2018) Pooh as a character is really quite dynamic, and he does embody the Pooh we remember from childhood in that he has this innocent quality about him and delivers these pearls of wisdom and witticisms that really reflect the world around him.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2018
45% The Meg (2018) It doesn't fully deliver. ‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2018
92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) [Jon Chu] really understands the tone of the film that he's making, and he really understands the visual palette that it needs and..he even elevates that. ‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2018
23% The Happytime Murders (2018) Critically speaking, this is a poorly constructed hodgepodge of a movie that is both generic and scattered somehow. ‐ Screen Junkies

A 78% Keanu (2016) A gut-busting, endearing, salty-sweet, and highly re-watchable comedy.‐ HitFix
Posted Mar 14, 2016
8.7/10 82% Ant-Man (2015) Ant-Man works within the framework of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also delivers a streamlined, fast-paced, lively and -- frankly -- utterly charming story.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2015
8.7/10 81% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) It's about the limited view we can put on the world and others, and how when we move beyond that, there are amazing discoveries to be revealed. It's about growing up.‐ IGN Movies

8/10 80% Furious 7 (2015) Furious 7 hits every note that it must to satisfy fans and effectively pay tribute to Walker in his final on-screen performance.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2015
8/10 84% Cinderella (2015) Cinderella doesn't tear down and rebuild the classic giving us something fresh, innovative, and unrecognizable. Kenneth Branagh does a tremendous job of adapting a well-trod narrative, however. ‐ IGN Movies

6.7/10 36% Project Almanac (2015) The film ultimately falls victim to its own gimmick, though. It can't withstand the pitfalls of the paradoxical nature of time travel and stumbles under the weight of an attempt to deliver a big finish.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2015
8/10 86% Top Five (2014) Top Five is the film that bridges the gap between the creator's on-screen and stage personas. Skillfully dancing the line between harsh and hopeful, Rock delivers his medicine with a delicious spoonful of honey.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2014
7.8/10 51% The Interview (2014) Though its unlikely to stand out as one of the shrewdest political satires of its time, [it] is a clever, unrestrained -- and most importantly -- sidesplitting parody that pokes fun at both a vapid media and one of the world's most dangerous dictators.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2014
89% Tangled (2010) At its core, Tangled is a tale as timeless as it is timely.‐ ScreenRant
Posted Dec 8, 2014
8/10 68% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) Mockingjay is, of course, fundamentally meant to be an engaging piece of entertainment... However, it's also a story in which the protagonist can be looked at as not just an unlikely hero, but a deconstruction of what a hero is or is meant to be.‐ IGN Movies

8/10 71% Interstellar (2014) Interstellar is an imperfect film, but like its central characters, aims about as high as one can. The ambition, execution, and craftsmanship are all to be admired.‐ IGN Movies

9.1/10 93% Whiplash (2014) The film is a stunning work that explores the price of great artistry, all the while demonstrating precisely what that looks like.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2014
9/10 87% Gone Girl (2014) Amy is the most challenging and crucial character to capture, and Pike is simply brilliant in a role that has all the potential to become both career defining and life altering.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2014
7.8/10 76% The Boxtrolls (2014) In total, The Boxtrolls is an imperfect delight, much like the titular sweet beasts themselves.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2014
6.8/10 43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) Though it doesn't recapture the sense of innovation of the original, and occasionally feels fragmented, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For provides an entertaining, though familiar, ride for those anxious to revisit that world.‐ IGN Movies

6.3/10 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Lovers of all things explosions, visual effects marvels, and Autobots will be granted a wealth of all of the above, plus a few intriguing and unexpected twists. At a certain point it may start to feel like too much of a good thing, though.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 50% Maleficent (2014) The best thing about Maleficent is the actress playing the titular character. Angelina Jolie is captivating, funny, grounded yet appropriately theatrical, and entirely appealing as the dark and misunderstood fairy. ‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted May 30, 2014
9/10 75% Godzilla (2014) Legendary Pictures' Godzilla origin story carries the weight of unwieldy expectations, but rather than buckle, it is ultimately a fantastic -- though imperfect -- example of the genre. ‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted May 12, 2014
6.3/10 19% Transcendence (2014) Ultimately, the film is a missed opportunity; long on ideas and short on execution.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2014
7/10 74% Oculus (2014) Oculus is a pleasingly creepy low-budget horror flick that plays with some interesting ideas, offers a fresh and unique structure, and understands that some questions are best left unanswered.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2014
9/10 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) The ninth installment in the Marvel cinematic universe, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is also perhaps its most intricately crafted.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2014
8.5/10 93% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) Ron Woodroof's story has a universal appeal in that it examines the way in which our greatest challenges call upon us to be more than we are, or ever imagined we could be.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2013
7.5/10 71% Pacific Rim (2013) Pacific Rim is, as you might expect, a visual extravaganza brimming with lush colors, state-of-the-art CGI effects and the promised robots on monsters hard-core fights to the death.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 30, 2013
6.1/10 14% 47 Ronin (2013) Mildly entertaining and gorgeous to look at, 47 Ronin has little beneath the surface to recommend it. There are a few good fights, though.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2013
6.5/10 82% Side Effects (2013) Side Effects delivers a skillfully crafted, yet ultimately pale and shallow, play on well established tropes, rather than anything genuinely new or in any manner deeply felt.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2013
6.5/10 51% White House Down (2013) If you're willing to give over to the ridiculousness of it all, White House Down can be an amusing and, again, absurd, but enjoyable diversion. The only question is: Are they in on the joke?‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2013
8.5/10 83% This Is the End (2013) When you're watching a stoner/celebrity culture/end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it comedy like this one, it really comes down to "How often did I laugh?" The answer is a lot.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2013
7.8/10 49% The Great Gatsby (2013) Lurhmann's take on Gatsby is dazzlingly beautiful, dizzyingly fast-paced, and may, like the novel, grow to be more appreciated with time.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted May 10, 2013
6.8/10 52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) Jack the Giant Slayer tries to hit all of the quadrants, but more often than not, misses the mark and hits none fully. It's entertaining enough, as mentioned, but fails to be a revelation.‐ IGN Movies
