Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 56% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The dumbest Jurassic movie to date is also the funnest since the original Jurassic Park.‐ Student Edge

2/5 55% Tag (2018) If someone came to me very specifically seeking a movie with a 'tag' themed title that'll make them laugh... well, no, I'd still recommend 'It' first.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) As glad as I was to spend time with the Parrs in 2018, on the second go around, they are ultimately demoted to simply 'credible'.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 85% Upgrade (2018) In Upgrade, a paralysed man gets rebooted as a killing machine thanks to a computer chip. It's absurd. It's also incredibly entertaining.‐ Student Edge

3/5 66% Ocean's 8 (2018) The picture is as fleet and forgettable as its characters would want to seem in the middle of a daylight robbery. But there is real pleasure to derive from the (incredibly) rare sight of eight female actors delighting in one another's company.‐ Student Edge

4/5 90% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary is deeply, deeply upsetting, in a way I did not anticipate and which the trailers do not prepare us for. ‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Like Rogue One before it, Solo: A Star Wars Story brings elevated expectations for future Star Wars spin-offs back down to Earth. Except when it comes to a vehicle for Lando. Now there's a new hope.‐ Student Edge

3/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Die-hard fans of Deadpool's fourth wall-breaking, superhero-subverting, ultraviolent antics will find much to enjoy in Deadpool 2. Everyone else: Deadpool is basically your Poochie.‐ Student Edge

4/5 80% Chappaquiddick (2018) Chappaquiddick is a powerful cautionary tale, and a reminder that people will forgive and forget anything if the surrounding news cycle is loud enough.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 87% Tully (2018) Charlize Theron takes the Fury Road offramp and heads to an even more apocalyptic setting in Tully: a nightmarish future dystopia for prospective parents.‐ Student Edge

4/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Infinity War is a dark and satisfying superhero flick, full of death, if you're into that sort of thing.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 79% Unsane (2018) Not since Michael Powell's Peeping Tom has the camera felt like an actual weapon, with us sitting on the incriminating side.‐ Student Edge

4/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Isle of Dogs is a marvel and supreme technical accomplishment. But it comes with an asterisk.‐ Student Edge

3/5 52% Rampage (2018) Honestly, this thing should have been 45 minutes. ‐ Student Edge

4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Besides having a double-barrelled surname that would suit any self-respecting jam band, the Krasinski-Blunts are indomitable together.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) With Ready Player One, Spielberg finally gets into self-spoofing, tackling his dominant era-the 1980s-with a sense of humour, while remaining plenty reverent to the pop culture universe he wrought.‐ Student Edge

3/5 39% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) [In] Into the Woods, Little Red makes a point of explaining how "nice is different than good". Is it a backhanded compliment to call A Wrinkle in Time just 'nice'?‐ Student Edge

4/5 83% Blockers (2018) Blockers is the sex comedy that was promised.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2018
3/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Uprising is unburdened by del Toro's reputation. [It's now] free to be your standard, dumb, robot-on-monster flick, no grading curve necessary.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 42% Mary Magdalene (2018) Mary Magdalene tries to retell the Easter story, and lays an egg.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
2.5/5 48% Tomb Raider (2018) There's a bright side: If I had to choose between Vikander's Tomb Raider and [Michael Fassbender's] Assassin's Creed, I'd go for her unremarkable Tomb Raider. I'd rather some shut-eye than a stress headache.‐ Student Edge

4/5 87% Annihilation (2018) Writer-director Alex Garland is certainly carving out a niche for himself, with movies in which people literally carve into themselves (or others) to check if they're still human.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 71% The Mercy (2017) Would you believe Marsh pulls off his miraculous feat, turning Crowhurst's highly-disturbing story into something worthwhile, and worth watching?‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
4/5 75% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) The film is playing with fire. Akin handles it with care, crafting his allegorical message into a compelling feature, anchored by a stellar leading performance.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) With its shady Russian subterfuge and systemic abuse of women in the workplace, Red Sparrow is a movie of the moment. However, it's also unstuck from time.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) No one said the erotic French picture about a woman with a transference/twincest fetish would be emotionally healthy.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
3/5 83% Game Night (2018) As a comedy about some low-key friends who love low-stakes games, Game Night is distracting enough. But as an unlikely action spoof? Yahtzee.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
4/5 97% Black Panther (2018) As the MCU lumbers to something of a climax in Avengers: Infinity War and looks beyond, the solid and satisfying Black Panther is a good standard-bearer for the next era... It's earnest, regal and ready to take over the MCU mantle.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 68% Happy End (2017) Until recently, I thought [Funny Games] was his most misanthropic project to date. I hadn't yet sat through his Instagram stories.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
2/5 17% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) A group of actors this appealing, and a director-Julius Onah-this promising, should be put to better use. Netflix, give them a Black Mirror or something instead.‐ Student Edge

5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Lady Bird asks the cinematic question, "How baller can one movie be?" And then it answers it emphatically: "Very baller."‐ Student Edge

4/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Phantom Thread's love story is, umm, unconventional. Well, whatever works!‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) The biggest joy of Molly's Game is discovering his two stars, Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba, speak Sorkenese beautifully, sliding effortlessly into his rat-a-tat screwball rhythms.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 89% I, Tonya (2018) Maybe that's the fate this tragedy deserves: Tonya Harding wishes she wasn't a punchline, and yet her big-screen redemption plays like a big joke.‐ Student Edge

3/5 77% All the Money in the World (2017) Though the decision to delete Spacey was both a commercial and moral one, it's also the film's smartest creative stroke.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2018
2.5/5 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) [Hugh Jackman's] a consummate professional, and that job often includes grinning through material that's beneath him and a little bit embarrassing. Director Michael Gracey's biopic of circus impresario P.T. Barnum is both of those things.‐ Student Edge

4/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) McDormand is a swaggering lead who leaves everyone else bloodied and burned (I'm referring to the singeing capacity of her performance, but I also mean it literally too).‐ Student Edge

3/5 32% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) If Pitch Perfect 1 was eager-to-please, Pitch Perfect 3 is the film equivalent of the DNGAF hashtag. Franchises grow up so fast.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
2.5/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Downsizing, starring a small-in-stature Matt Damon, gives short shrift to its many big ideas.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2017
4.5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Movies should be better than those we could imagine up on our own. Rian Johnson knows what we want to see, and shows it to us in ways we couldn't have envisioned without him.‐ Student Edge

4/5 95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) Luca Guadagnino's films are so tangible, you could live inside of them, and you'd be happy to stay there.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
4.5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) The Florida Project is a funny, tragic, anarchic, hypercolour slice of life, and I loved it.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2017
4/5 97% Coco (2017) Coco is a beautiful and moving film, but there's something inherently funny about Pixar now making movies where even dead people die again.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2017
4.5/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) James Franco has turned one of the worst movies ever made into a great one. That's not merely the result of hard graft, skill and luck. That's straight-up alchemy.‐ Student Edge

5/5 83% Mulholland Drive (2001) Mulholland Drive is maddeningly abstract and inscrutable on first viewing, but hypnotic and haunting on every viewing after.‐ Junkee

2.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) Justice League has jokes; that doesn't mean it's funny.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
4.5/5 80% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2017
3/5 57% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2017
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
