2.5/5 17% The Dark Tower (2017) [McConaughey's] unbending posture, open-necked black V-shirt and tuft of fuzzy hair means he's less Mephistopheles and more Mr. Mistoffelees.‐ Student Edge

4/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) The snappily-edited and uber-efficient working-class caper Logan Lucky is so ephemeral, its screenwriter may not even exist.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 86% Wind River (2017) Renner and Olsen, no one's favourite Avengers, make for an appealing team here.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) [A] very special movie, and one I was happy to live inside of 124 minutes.‐ Student Edge

3/5 75% Atomic Blonde (2017) You either want to watch Charlize Theron dismantle German cops with cruel efficiency while George Michael's "Father Figure" blares over a boombox, or you don't.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Don't understate the achievements of the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise. It got us to actively root against the survival of the human race.‐ Student Edge

4/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) Those who tune into the strange frequency of A Ghost Story will be grandly rewarded. Just know, first and foremost, in this ghost story, all the haunting is conducted by linen.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) Christopher Nolan's relentless Dunkirk turns a wartime retreat into a cinematic triumph.‐ Student Edge

4/5 94% Baby Driver (2017) Edgar Wright pumps up the jams in Baby Driver, the best car chase musical since The Blues Brothers. (Admittedly, it's a narrow genre.)‐ Student Edge

4/5 79% The Beguiled (2017) Don't be fooled by the corsets and candlelit cinematography. They may as well have called it Carry on Convalescing.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 17% The House (2017) The House is a dark enterprise, and often unsettling, which is not what you usually want from a Will Ferrell flick.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming never reaches greatness, but it aces goodness.‐ Student Edge

2/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes at Night answers the cinematic question: Do movies even need an ending? (Yes.)‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2017
3/5 92% First Girl I Loved (2016) Though First Girl I Loved can't quite come to a conclusion on the myriad questions it raises about consent, it gently delivers the modest, honest story promised in its title.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 48% Rough Night (2017) At the end of Rough Night's 101 minutes, you're convinced you'd sit through another 101 with the same quintet. If they could make a sequel to Weekend at Bernie's, why not this? Puppeteered dead bodies deserve representation too.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 82% Risk (2017) The murky ethics behind the making of Risk fit the murkier ethics of its subject, meaning this is one of those "accidentally good" movies that is a trainwreck for all involved, but might still be worth watching.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 16% The Mummy (2017) Young viewers might be disturbed by the sight of Ahmanet's mouldy body desperately searching for new blood. Everyone else will just be depressed by the sight of a studio and star desperately doing the same.‐ Student Edge

4/5 89% 20th Century Women (2017) 'Quirky' can often be a dirty word, though it does apply somewhat here. Yet, thanks to its five main performers, 20th Century Women feels whole and human. It was only raised quirky.‐ Student Edge

4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) It's much, much better and more thoughtful than [other superhero films]; its depiction of heroism and humanity, more complex. Most importantly, it's a great time at the movies. More like this, please.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 90% Hounds of Love (2017) Hounds of Love takes you to hell for two hours. No one could be blamed for wanting to be anywhere else.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) At 129 minutes, it is also the shortest instalment in the Pirates saga, so that's something I suppose.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) A balletic murder-opera, John Wick Chapter 2 ups the ante and expands the universe of the original sleeper hit. Deliver us Chapter 3 immediately, Keanu.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted May 15, 2017
2/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) The Alien franchise: overthinking it since '92.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted May 8, 2017
3.5/5 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) If you're wondering when the picture roars back to life, it's when the enthusiastic Pratt excitedly tells his God-Father he's going to "make some weird s***". I assume that's when Gunn started taking his own advice.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 99% Get Out (2017) Jordan Peele's Get Out plucks a raw nerve with skill and style. Strange, funny and confronting, it's the horror satire of our age.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2017
3.5/5 74% Berlin Syndrome (2017) As a damaged parable of domestic violence and deranged monogamy, Berlin Syndrome is scathing. Again, this movie will not make your next date night easier. And it's not meant to.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2017
4/5 90% Raw (2017) Raw is both good and gross, meaning it can live up to its reputation as The Flick That Keeps Making People Pass Out or Vomit and still stand up to actual artistic scrutiny.‐ Student Edge

3/5 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Vin Diesel does great, affecting work in The Fate of the Furious. Yes, that's a ridiculous sentence to write.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 80% Colossal (2017) Gloria grows, just not in the way cinema tell us female heroes should. Hathaway shines as Colossal's feminist champion.‐ Student Edge

3/5 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) The live-action interpretation of the iconic anime Ghost in the Shell is kind of like Blade Runner, if Harrison Ford ran around in a skin-tight unitard.‐ Student Edge

4/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) In the beginning, there was The Lego Movie, and we saw that it was good. Now there is The Lego Batman Movie, and it too is good, if a little less so.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 89% Loving (2016) The tale is moving, and you wouldn't want it told with any more bells and whistles, but it'll leave you wanting more. The good news is that you'll want more of Jeff Nichols.‐ Student Edge

3/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) I'll accept a romantic relationship between a giant man-buffalo and a woman, but Josh Gad with a fringe? It goes against the very laws of nature.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island doesn't reinvent the wheel. It just rides it. And it's a lot of fun.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) The Great Wall asks the cinematic question: Was the Great Wall of China really all that great before Matt Damon came along?‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
4/5 84% Silence (2017) It took 28 years for Martin Scorsese to make his grisly passion project (or should that be 'passion play'?) Silence. Patience is a virtue.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 92% Hidden Figures (2017) Hidden Figures isn't nearly as revolutionary or convention-busting as its subjects, but it illuminates an important story, and is given flight by three charismatic performers.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 93% Fences (2016) It's the Backyard Acting Olympics.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
2.5/5 43% Gold (2017) Just like late-period Pacino and Brando, McConaughey remains supremely watchable, even when careening off the rails of common performative sense.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2017
5/5 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) Emotionally gruelling-yet somehow still funny-Manchester by the Sea magnificently covers the wide expanse of human experience.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2017
2.5/5 34% Live By Night (2017) Live by Night, sleep in the cinema. Ben Affleck's snoozy follow-up to Argo is more like Ambien.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
3/5 74% Split (2017) In Split, James McAvoy faces his greatest challenge yet: being directed by M. Night Shyamalan. (Oh, and playing two dozen distinct personalities. But mainly the first thing.)‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2017
3.5/5 85% Lion (2016) It's a miraculous tale, though one that relies heavily on a device filmmakers have struggled to make cinematic: staring at a computer for long stretches.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2017
5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight defies more than the movies. It defies the way we identify ourselves as well. If you're looking for shorthand, call it the portrait of a person. Say it's also beautiful to behold, and brilliant.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2017
4.5/5 89% Jackie (2016) History comes to life and a former First Lady becomes a walking ghost in Pablo Larraín's strange, disquieting biopic, Jackie.‐ Student Edge

1.5/5 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) At one point, even Fassbender's character remarks, "What the f*** is going on?" Finally, some truth in art.‐ Student Edge

4/5 96% Paterson (2016) Here, Jarmusch says of artists (just as he suggested of vampires in Only Lovers Left Alive): they walk among us.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
3/5 40% Why Him? (2016) A man is driven to breaking point and forced to make questionable professional choices as a means of providing for his family, is one way to describe Bryan Cranston's transition to film following the end of Breaking Bad.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
2.5/5 31% Passengers (2016) Not so much a meet-cute as a meet-euch, Passengers squanders an intriguing premise and likable leads on a third act that loses direction and floats off into the expanse of nothingness.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
3/5 100% Red Dog: True Blue (2016) I did not expect the Red Dog series to take its cues from The Human Centipede saga, which broke the fourth wall in the exact same manner with its second instalment, yet here we are.‐ Student Edge
