51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Fallen Kingdom is one of the better installments in this never-extinct film series. Lots of fun, and yes - do see it in IMAX!‐ Opeeqo

83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Yes, it more of the same - hardcore action sequences (in slo-mo, of course) set to cheesy-brie ballads, Deadpool demolishing the fourth wall, and plenty of dick jokes - but it's still fun. ‐

39% Mary Shelley (2018) A lifeless look at the creator of Frankenstein's Monster.‐
Read More | Posted May 12, 2018
86% Tully (2018) While Tully is a comedy, it's dark, dark, dark! As you watch, you may find yourself thinking, Wait... should I be laughing at this? ‐
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
47% Marrowbone (2018) The young cast is quite impressive, and their collective cinematic horror pedigree adds to the enjoyment.‐ Opeeqo

81% Tiny Shoulders, Rethinking Barbie (2018) The film is at its best when it shows the history of Barbie.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
69% Wildling (2018) It's assured and unflinching, but without Powley's childlike, otherworldly quality and her offbeat beauty, the story wouldn't have worked as well as it does. ‐

52% Rampage (2018) Kids will love seeing the crazy creatures wreak the obligatory havoc and watching Johnson save the world with his trademark charisma and charm.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2018
87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) It's an extraordinarily violent film, yet it's peppered with small moments of poignant grace. ‐

28% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) Let's just say it's not exactly the most high brow adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's work to come along.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2018
80% Unsane (2018) Unsane is not quite unsettling enough to get under the skin nor is it pulpy enough to elicit so-bad-it's-good glee, but it's a fast-paced and well-acted thriller.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2018
74% Son of Bigfoot (2018) Fun enough for mom and dad to enjoy. Adults will notice nods to X-Men, Teen Wolf and The Incredible Hulk, and a few (very few) pop-culture references.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
79% I Kill Giants (2018) Making Barbara an adolescent for the movie is a good idea-it puts her into a profound and formative stage of life tweens can relate to and parents can remember. ‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Heady enough for discerning adult audiences and yet still fun for kids, Anderson does a great job on the tightrope here.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2018
49% Tomb Raider (2018) A good girl power flick for tweens.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018

4/5 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) Aside from the quick setup introducing the targets, The Strangers: Prey at Night really is a nonstop thrill ride... I was breathless from start to finish. ‐ Dread Central

23% Inside (2018) Folks coming in fresh [not having seen the original], and casual horror fans, will more than likely enjoy it.‐ Dread Central

87% The Post (2018) It's a movie I admire more than I like.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2017
56% The Greatest Showman (2017) First and foremost, The Greatest Showman is a musical reverie - an ode to dreams - not a biopic. ‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2017
50% Downsizing (2017) Unfortunately, the structure is a mess. It feels like a series of scenarios strung together, without cohesive light at the end of the tunnel. ‐
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
85% Darkest Hour (2017) It's somewhat interesting to witness the events that led to one of the most famous speeches of the 20th century, but not 2 hours, 5-minutes worth of interesting.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2017
89% I, Tonya (2018) Shows Tonya was a fighter, and she still is.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
91% The Disaster Artist (2017) The Disaster Artist has broad appeal because it's not just about making a movie, it's about believing in yourself against all odds. ‐
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017

Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
4.5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) The Shape of Water is a dreamlike, pulpy adult fairytale that dances on the surface of reality while remaining true to the auteur's vision.‐ Dread Central

46% Mrs. Hyde (Madame Hyde) (2018) I wanted to see the classic tale of hidden identity I was promised, not a retread of Stand and Deliver.‐ Inside Horror
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
51% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Roman J. Israel, Esq., has its moments - thanks mostly to the ever-watchable Washington - but it's heavy-handed in its message. ‐

No Score Yet Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George's Creators (2017) While the story behind the curious little monkey who has captivated readers for nearly a century is interesting, the real takeaway from Monkey Business is illustrating what can be accomplished with perseverance, talent, and true love. ‐ Opeeqo

59% Jungle (2017) When all is said and done, it's Radcliffe who makes you care about how it all turns out. He's a truly fine actor.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2017
35% Jigsaw (2017) It's more by-the-numbers action than grab-you horror. Jigsaw's screenwriters don't have the guts to push beyond the boundaries.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Truly unsettling, genuinely provocative.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2017
1.5/5 8% The Snowman (2017) [T]here's no horror or suspense to the proceedings at all. In fact, each successive appearance of the silly snowman is just plain funny...‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
4/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) The script is quite clever ... Happy Death Day is one of the best horror-comedies to come out in some time ... it's a whole lot of fun.‐ Dread Central

66% Manolo, The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards (2017) Anyone who loves the history of fashion - the doc presents archival video from swinging London to gritty 1980s Paris, and everyplace in-between - will enjoy aspects of this film. ‐
