3.5/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) This third time's the charm in Marvel's pantheon of Spider-Man portrayers. Tobey Maguire was pretty good, Andrew Garfield was so-so, but Holland ... Well, when you've got it, you've got it.‐ Seattle Times

2/4 88% It Comes At Night (2017) With all of Shults' dark-night-of-the-soul mood manipulations, the film promises more than it delivers. Its buildups are impressive, but in the end its frights are mild.‐ Seattle Times

3.5/4 87% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) The friendship of George and Harold is celebrated, and the cheery vocal work of Hart and Middleditch gives the picture its sprightly spirit.‐ Seattle Times

1.5/4 19% Baywatch (2017) It's all just a day at the beach, harmlessly fun and instantly forgettable.‐ Seattle Times

2.5/4 71% The Wall (2017) Taylor-Johnson's agonized performance holds the audience's attention, but his portrayal doesn't really take the character anywhere.‐ Seattle Times

2.5/4 79% Chuck (2017) Thanks to its two central performances, "Chuck" is a solid contender.‐ Seattle Times

1.5/4 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) It's a rare misstep for the usually sure-footed folks behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe.‐ Seattle Times

3.5/4 28% Voice from the Stone (2017) With her wonderfully expressive face, Clarke carries the picture, navigating her character's gradual transformation with grace and conviction.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) The jungle scenes, shot in the Colombian rain forest, convey an oppressive sense of an alien land where Fawcett and his teams of fellow explorers are unwelcome intruders.‐ Seattle Times

2/4 30% The Assignment (2017) This is perhaps the angriest movie Hill - longtime specialist in tough-guy fare such as "The Driver," "Last Man Standing," "Red Heat" and "Bullet to the Head" - has ever made.‐ Seattle Times

2/4 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) It's somehow only fitting that with Scarlett Johansson in the lead role, "Ghost in the Shell" leaves you with the feeling that something has been lost in translation.‐ Seattle Times

1/4 52% The Boss Baby (2017) Crushes all the whimsy out of Frazee's story with an avalanche of crudity.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2017
4/4 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) With a pulsing soundtrack and an ending scene that cleverly ties the whole thing back to the first picture, T2 is a sequel that is at least the equal of the revered original.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) Along with the kids' sorrow, Barras works uplift and lightness into the story, and there are moments of great joy.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 93% Logan (2017) Instead of putting the emphasis on superhero superpowers, Mangold delves deeply into these characters' human-scale vulnerabilities.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
3/4 85% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) An effective and surprisingly intelligent exercise in sustained horror.‐ Seattle Times

1/4 17% The Space Between Us (2017) This movie is ridiculous.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
1/4 43% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) "xXx: Return of Xander Cage" is the movie equivalent of cotton candy: all empty calories. Excessive consumption of this product is likely to give a body the queasies.‐ Seattle Times

2/4 34% Live By Night (2017) Affleck sports plenty of snappy '20s fashions, tailored double-breasted suits, often cream-colored, and elegant Borsalino-style fedoras. He's dressed to kill for sure. Too bad his movie is so deadly dull.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2017
1.5/4 32% Monster Trucks (2017) The equivalent of a cinematic burp: gassy and inconsequential.‐ Seattle Times

2/4 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) The picture has an undeniable rough stylishness ... but in terms of coherence of storytelling it leaves the audience choking on all that swirling dust.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) The action sequences, both on the ground and in space, are rousingly staged. But the losses incurred in those sequences are sobering. The stakes in the "Star Wars" rebellion are high indeed.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 60% Burn Country (2016) The performances are first rate, particularly Rains' work in the lead role.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 95% Old Stone (Lao Shi) (2016) The litany of woes builds inexorably. Star Chen Gang plays the protagonist as the saddest of sad sacks, his eyes filling with hopelessness as his burdens bury him.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2016
1/4 14% Man Down (2016) Offering only an atmosphere of deepening gloom and a premise of utter hopelessness, "Man Down" is like movie antimatter: It repels interest.‐ Seattle Times

1.5/4 96% The Love Witch (2016) Is "the Love Witch" a parody? It sure feels like it. But I'm not sure Biller intended it to be one.‐ Seattle Times

0.5/4 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) If ever there was a movie that should never have been made, "Bad Santa 2" is that movie.‐ Seattle Times

3.5/4 45% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) The acting and script are so strong that the picture is an outstanding achievement even in the 2D version that most people will see.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
2/4 71% Bleed For This (2016) Teller is impressively bulked up, but there's a flatness in his performance. It's a dogged, rather than an inspired, portrayal.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
3.5/4 97% Aquarius (2016) "Aquarius" is about a half-hour too long for the story it tells, yet it feels like a privilege to be in the presence of such a powerful character and such a quietly commanding performance.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 90% Doctor Strange (2016) In the matter of "Dr. Strange," two words: Big. Fun.‐ Seattle Times

3/4 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) With Andrew Garfield in the lead role and Mel Gibson in the director's chair for the first time in 10 years, "Hacksaw" is an incredibly powerful picture once it gets to the battle scenes.‐ Seattle Times

1.5/4 74% Trolls (2016) Kids up to maybe 5 to 6 might like it. As for Mom and Dad ... kindly keep your screams to yourselves.‐ Seattle Times

3.5/4 100% Tower (2016) Maitland has created a documentary with a remarkable you-are-there immediacy.‐ Seattle Times
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2016
2/4 19% Inferno (2016) The chase, chase, chase pace is tiring, not least because it's not clear who many of these people are and what agendas they're following.‐ Seattle Times
