3/5 86% 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

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 70% 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

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 90% 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

2.5/5 55% 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

2.5/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Downsizing, starring a small-in-stature Matt Damon, gives short shrift to its many big ideas.‐ Student Edge

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 96% 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

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

4.5/5 79% 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 84% 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 7% 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 81% 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 92% 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 85% 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 69% 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 81% 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

4/5 89% Ali's Wedding (2017) Ali's Wedding is a super sweet Australian-Muslim rom-com. Just what the doctor ordered.‐ Student Edge

3/5 90% 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 41% 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 86% 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 87% 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 77% 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
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

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

2.5/5 18% 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
