2.5/4 50% Rampage (2018) I dunno, man, it's got The Rock and a monkey fighting a giant, flying wolf, what more do you want?‐ Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Terse and tense, John Krasinski's latest is a near-perfect horror film.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 73% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One does what it sets out to do: it entertains, it flatters, it moves. Hard to ask for much more than that from a big budget blockbuster.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Stop-motion Wes Anderson may be the best Wes Anderson.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Some of the spectacle of the original, with none of the soul.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 96% The Death of Stalin (2018) There is something revelatory about transporting the bureaucratic machinations featured in Iannucci's previous work to the gulag archipelago that was Soviet Russia.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 39% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Awkwardly shot at times, clumsily acted occasionally, grotesquely sincere throughout, but with some pleasingly jarring visuals and a fine keystone performance from Chris Pine.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 17% Death Wish (2018) Entertaining and amusing and charming in its refusal to dismiss the cathartic nature of retributive violence.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 47% Red Sparrow (2018) The perfect movie for our times: retro in its sensibilities, modern in its aesthetics, with sex and violence to keep interest from waning in its ripped-from-the-headlines subject.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 87% Annihilation (2018) On a purely visual, and visceral, level, Annihilation is haunting and memorable.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 96% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther is a solid MCU movie, entertaining if somewhat disposable. If you like the rest of these movies ... you'll probably like this one too.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 16% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) At best it's a piece of fan service designed to explain why the "Cloverfield Universe" exists-and even then, it's kind of slipshod and lazy.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 73% Mom and Dad (2018) Mom and Dad isn't good, exactly, and your enjoyment of it will depend on how much you like the gag of the central metaphor.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 54% 12 Strong (2018) 12 Strong tells a true story, and does it well.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 28% Proud Mary (2018) The biggest disappointment, honestly, is that Proud Mary never really does anything with the 70s vibe the poster and the title sequence promise‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Day-Lewis and Krieps both deserve every ounce of praise they're getting for this film, having delivered two of the most nuanced, remarkable performances I've seen this year.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 96% Mudbound (2017) Hey, if endless degradation and sadness are your cuppa tea, then click on Mudbound.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 26% Bright (2017) Bright is an entertaining-enough high-concept feature with a few glaring holes that fans of its director, cop-corruption auteur David Ayer, will likely enjoy.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 87% The Post (2018) It's about time the mainstream media had its own propaganda film.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 85% Darkest Hour (2017) Darkest Hour rises above the trappings of its genre thanks to a stirring performance by Gary Oldman.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 40% Justice League (2017) Justice League is overstuffed and undercooked and features at least two too many new characters.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) The first half of Three Billboards is one of the best films of 2017, a perfect mix of heartbreak and humor with a mean streak. ... Unfortunately there's a second half.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 92% Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) If you're in the mood for an amusingly reactionary ... throwback to the grindhouse, Brawl in Cell Block 99 is a solid way to spend two hours of your time.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) There's something just a little bit off about the way the film handles its title character.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 28% Suburbicon (2017) A rather dreadful black comedy that never manages to be funny enough to justify its ham-handed social commentary.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 62% The Foreigner (2017) An IRA thriller misleadingly packaged as Jackie Chan meets Taken.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
1.5/4 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Shot with the verve of an after-school special, hammering its points with the subtlety of a carpenter banging nails, it feels like a parody of an empowerment movie.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) A film, like the replicants who populate it, that makes a perfectly compelling case for its own existence.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
2.5/4 86% American Made (2017) An intermittently amusing and muddled retelling of the beginnings of the Iran-contra affair.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Kingsman: The Golden Circle is at its best when it embraces the nutso vision of its predecessor. Such moments are, unfortunately, a bit overwhelmed by the soggy pacing‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 69% mother! (2017) The skill that went into crafting mother! is undeniable ... but so is its unpleasantness, its aggressively nihilistic and misanthropic ugliness.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 81% The Trip to Spain (2017) A rather perfect mélange of casual wealth porn, a glimpse into competitive friendships, and the clash between masculine imperatives.‐ Washington Free Beacon
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
3/4 93% Logan Lucky (2017) A star-studded heist flick that calls to mind some of the eclectic director's most popular work even if it falters a bit at the end.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 84% Detroit (2017) Narrative looseness aside, there is a great power to Detroit. Bigelow and Boal have put together a troubling portrait of a society tearing itself apart.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 16% The Dark Tower (2017) If you're going to adapt Stephen King's eight-book opus ... why would you turn its lead character, Roland Deschain, aka the Gunslinger (Idris Elba), into a supporting character?‐ Washington Free Beacon

4/4 92% Dunkirk (2017) Exhilaratingly claustrophobic, Christopher Nolan's latest is the best film of the year thus far.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 78% The Little Hours (2017) The Little Hours has one of the worst laughs-per-minute-per-genius-comic-actor ratios I've ever experienced in my filmgoing life.‐ Washington Free Beacon
