72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) The story has a lot of twists and turns, as well as a couple of genuinely unexpected surprises as people come and go, and their numbers swell and shrink.‐ Digital Journal

88% First Man (2018) [Director Damien Chazelle's framing style] is one of the elements that makes this picture so compelling and more than the average biopic of a historical figure.‐ Digital Journal

90% A Star Is Born (2018) [It's] a crowd-pleaser and many may not even notice the film cheats them of a more fulfilling ending since it already runs 135 minutes and the soundtrack is a rewarding distraction.‐ Digital Journal

85% The Sisters Brothers (2018) [It's] an offbeat Western that doesn't force its characters into clearly defined categories of good and bad as the men at the centre of the tale walk that fine line with many missteps.‐ Digital Journal

64% Lizzie (2018) The overall tone of the film is very sullen, which means even the romantic element of the movie is still rather sombre. ‐ Digital Journal

83% Bad Reputation (2018) [If] there was any dirt swept under the rug, that's where it's staying as the film is a celebration of her career, not a tabloid hack job.‐ Digital Journal

78% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) The statistics and personal accounts speak for themselves, regardless of Moore's heavy-handed approach to these subject matters.‐ Digital Journal

85% The Wife (2018) This movie isn't about guessing their deep, dark secrets, but seeing the toll they have on their relationships with each other and their now-adult children.‐ Digital Journal

67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) Director Eli Roth is better known for his gory, torture-porn pictures, but with this movie he demonstrates he can pull it back for a thrilling, family-friendly fantasy. ‐ Digital Journal

59% White Boy Rick (2018) This is one of those movies that in spite of being based on a true story, one still has to wonder how people could be so dim-witted.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018
79% Her Smell (2018) Viewers will find themselves engrossed in her madness, enthralled by her recovery and gripped by the prospect of her relapse.‐ Digital Journal

95% Border (Gräns) (2018) All of these [unusual] elements fit perfectly into this contemporary yet unconventional fantasy that also incorporates a mystery box and surprising proposal. ‐ Digital Journal

50% Donnybrook (2018) This is a dark film that digs deep into the cavernous depths of humanity to find some of its key personalities and envision their abysmal actions. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2018
33% The Predator (2018) There's a formula that works for these movies and they've put it aside for something too complex for its own good.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2018
54% The Wind (2018) This movie blends genres by using the landscape of the Western pioneer and the horror of monsters that may still be roaming the untamed lands.‐ Digital Journal

67% Kursk (2018) This film honours the victims and their families with its sincere depiction of events, but more importantly of the people affected by this avoidable tragedy. ‐ Digital Journal

73% Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy (2018) ... ignites this stimulating exploration of identity and what constitutes a real person versus a figment of one's imagination.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
No Score Yet The Extraordinary Journey of Celeste Garcia (El viaje extraordinario de Celeste García) (2018) It's a comfortable, familial comedy, rather than touting anything too out of this world.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
89% Freaks (2018) The script is intelligent with genuine character development and enough wit to occasionally illuminate the darkness. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
100% Firecrackers (2018) ... all-female key crew, [subconsciously] enhances the picture as the set could empathize with the girls and their desire to break-free in all of its glory and ugliness. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
88% Bernie (2012) Clearly, director Richard Linklater has a non-visual sense of humour. He finds amusement in words and people's personalities rather than sight gags or slapstick.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
34% Battleship (2012) If they'd simply sped things up and tailored it for the short attention spans it's geared towards, Battleship may have been a more enjoyable film.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
58% Hysteria (2012) The narrative does such a wonderful job of telling the story in a fun, open manner.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
75% The Intouchables (2012) The bromance movie is somewhat old hat now... The Intouchables brings a new, refreshing level to the genre - it only took a real-life, improbable friendship to inspire the making of the film.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
48% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) Snow White and the Huntsman takes the ageless fable, and makes it dark and exhausting.‐ Digital Journal

73% Prometheus (2012) Viewers with short attention spans probably won't enjoy the gradual build Scott does so well, but it's worth the wait.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
90% Safety Not Guaranteed (2012) The unusual story is complemented by quirky characters that are strengthened by excellent performances. A somewhat dark and sometimes cynical comedy.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
37% Lola Versus (2012) Lola Versus is a smart comedy propelled by the chemistry of two entertaining actors.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
79% Brave (2012) Brave may not match the calibre of story that's come to be expected from the studio, but it does introduce a wonderful new female character that will inspire long after the credits roll.‐ Digital Journal

65% Hit So Hard (2012) Though it feels as if many of these scenes are included because they're a side of Cobain so rarely seen, the focus appropriately never strays far from Schemel.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
85% Bully (2012) Bully is a powerful megaphone amplifying the call to stop bullying in schools.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
61% Fightville (2012) Fightville takes the spotlight out of Las Vegas and shines it on southern Louisiana, taking a hard look at the grueling underside of MMA fighting through the perspectives of four dedicated men.‐ Digital Journal

37% Lockout (2012) For a night of shameless entertainment and explosions, Lockout is a winning choice.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
91% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) This is a horror picture that draws from every sub-genre. It's scary, funny, gory, monstrous, apocalyptic and mysterious.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
54% Think Like a Man (2012) This contrived battle of the sexes is the premise of some great romantic comedies, though Think Like a Man is more comedic than romantic.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
86% The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012) The Pirates! Band of Misfits doesn't quite deliver the memorable sea shanty that keeps audiences coming back for another verse.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
26% The Nun (2018) This movie is dedicated to a monster that already proved to be inherently frightening, but in spite of a couple of good scares ... it never quite gets to where it [should be].‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) What filmmakers likely thought was an homage to one of the greatest '70s horror movies plays more like a rip-off. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) It feels somewhat incomplete... The abstract concepts and existentialism that infiltrate the middle section seems to stall the picture's progression in favour of lovely but empty visuals.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
90% Isle of Dogs (2018) It's not easy to maintain a sense of cuteness while telling a relatively dark story, yet Anderson walks this line comfortably. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
72% Ready Player One (2018) A fun film that can be enjoyed whether you read the book or not. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
83% Blockers (2018) Wholly enjoyable from start to finish due in no small part to this exceptional cast. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
81% Chappaquiddick (2018) Clarke was an interesting choice for this role, but he pulls it off rather flawlessly by mostly conquering the signature drawl. From grabbing the attention of every room Ted entered to being foolishly stubborn, Clarke nails it.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
53% Rampage (2018) No one goes to this movie expecting depth or realism; it promises humongous beasts, action and "The Rock", and it delivers. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
83% Beirut (2018) It's not edge-of-your-seat riveting, but it is interesting enough to get audiences to the end. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) Maintains the humour and energy of its predecessor while telling a new, hilarious story featuring everyone's favourite screw-ups. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Possibly the greatest - and most ambitious - superhero movie to date. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
86% Tully (2018) Tully is a genuine portrayal of how overwhelming life can be and is elevated by Charlize Theron's outstanding performance. ‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is no stranger to high intensity action, and here he is able to marry his sense of stylish combat with a keen understanding of franchise's wit.‐ Digital Journal
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Howard is an excellent director and even given a beleaguered franchise movie, he delivers an epic fantasy picture that enthrals audiences from start to finish.‐ Digital Journal
