2.5/5 41% Justice League (2017) Justice League has jokes; that doesn't mean it's funny.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 78% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) As Steven deadpans about Martin, "Yes, he is funny." I feel the same way about Yorgos Lanthimos. I often use the same delivery.‐ Student Edge

3/5 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) You'd wish the more delicious performers like Dafoe and especially Cruz had a bit more to chew on. Branagh gets all the good stuff instead, which he chomps with mischievous delight. ‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 83% Detroit (2017) I'm glad we have Detroit on the cinematic record, for future generations to revisit. I pray, by then, it will seem like a relic of the distant past.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Ingrid Goes West is a biting black comedy about fakers, phonies and Instagram feeds, with #nofilter.‐ Student Edge

4/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Guardians of the Galaxy may have done it first, but Thor: Ragnarok does it best.‐ Student Edge

1.5/5 8% The Snowman (2017) The Snowman starts bad, gets worse, and finishes somewhere suboceanic. It may take decades for researcher to plumb its badness; perhaps only with technology yet to be invented.‐ Student Edge

5/5 80% Brigsby Bear (2017) Brigsby Bear, directed by Dave McCary and co-written by Kevin Costello and star Kyle Mooney, arrives in time to save the idea of the 'fan' from toxicity.‐ Student Edge

4/5 91% Good Time (2017) Good Time isn't just nerve-wracking because Connie's scattershot schemes keep blowing up in his face; it keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering how the Safdies even got this footage.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Blade Runner 2049 is so good, I'd be happy for Denis to tempt fate and make another.‐ Student Edge

2/5 5% Flatliners (2017) It makes a lot of sense that a picture about doctors with a cavalier attitude towards humankind's impermanence would be at the center of a movie that wantonly wastes two precious hours of our lives. ‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Battle of the Sexes is compelling and enjoyable to watch, thanks in large part to the performances, even if some of the outsized supporting characters... are given the lamest lines.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 68% mother! (2017) When absurdity takes over in the final third, mother! becomes wildly fun and certainly unforgettable.‐ Student Edge

3/5 34% American Assassin (2017) If you don't think you'll enjoy watching Michael Keaton constantly putting people in sleeper-holds-aka Night Shifting-seek your entertainment elsewhere.‐ Student Edge

2/5 82% Patti Cake$ (2017) The flick... settles on cloying conventionality and an underdog-plays-the-big-concert finale that was so embarrassing to behold, my face literally burned red throughout.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
4/5 85% It (2017) Fear is given a face in It, a hugely entertaining half-adaptation of Stephen King's doorstopper of a novel.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
4/5 88% Ali's Wedding (2017) Ali's Wedding is a super sweet Australian-Muslim rom-com. Just what the doctor ordered.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2017
3/5 89% Girls Trip (2017) Girls Trip doesn't tread into the realm of body horror like The Beguiled or Rough Night (or hormonal horror, like 20th Century Women), but it allows four charismatic and well-matched leading ladies to give audiences an evening of good, unclean fun.‐ Student Edge

2/5 40% Death Note (2017) It's fitting that a movie about writing names should be a blank space, baby.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
4/5 87% American Made (2017) Pictures about the underside of the American Dream are as old as Citizen Kane (actually, older). Still, there's no harm in Liman throwing one more hubristic tale into the pile; certainly not when it's this fun and frantic, shot with grimy vigour.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 16% 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 88% Wind River (2017) Renner and Olsen, no one's favourite Avengers, make for an appealing team here.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2017
3/5 76% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2017
4/5 90% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2017
4.5/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) Christopher Nolan's relentless Dunkirk turns a wartime retreat into a cinematic triumph.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2017
4/5 93% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2017
4/5 78% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2017
2.5/5 16% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
3.5/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming never reaches greatness, but it aces goodness.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
3.5/5 46% 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 81% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
4/5 88% 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
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
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
Read More | Posted May 30, 2017
3.5/5 89% 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
Read More | Posted May 29, 2017
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
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
4.5/5 90% 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 68% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2017
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 73% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2017
3/5 67% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2017
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
