98% Science Fair (2018) Science Fair falls somewhere between an episode of Big Bang Theory and Mad Hot Ballroom - entertaining, often funny, sometimes awkward, and always educational. ‐ Opeeqo

100% Liyana (2018) Liyana, a hybrid fairytale born in the imaginations of five African orphans, works so because it's told by children.‐ Opeeqo

66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) While the choice of Eli Roth - known for his hard-R horror movies - as the director might seem like an odd one, he actually is a self-proclaimed kid at heart who loves children's movies from eras gone by.‐ Opeeqo

79% Halloween (2018) I enjoyed watching all of the well-crafted characters, but H40 really is Laurie and Michael's show-both come to life in their best iterations since the 70s. ‐ Inside Horror

Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
88% Love, Gilda (2018) Love, Gilda isn't really a film in its own right-it's more of a fawning tribute with rounded corners and soft edges. ‐
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2018
92% Mandy (2018) If you enjoy trippy dark fantasy films and volumes of violence presented with phantasmagoric glee, then this flick is definitely worth a look.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
64% Lizzie (2018) Lizzie is an intelligent, slow-burn chamber piece that also serves as a subtle nod to the #MeToo movement.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
53% Papillon (2018) Even though there is always something going on, the film feels far too long at its over two-hour runtime. ‐
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
45% The Meg (2018) Casting superstar tough-guy Jason Statham as Jonas was smart... too bad the script isn't.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2018

Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2018
48% 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

89% Hereditary (2018) Plot holes abound. ‐
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018

Read More | Posted May 30, 2018
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. ‐
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
40% 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? ‐

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
70% 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. ‐
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
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
89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) It's an extraordinarily violent film, yet it's peppered with small moments of poignant grace. ‐

27% 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
75% 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
78% 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
51% Tomb Raider (2018) A good girl power flick for tweens.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) While the extravaganza film adaptation of the beloved novel has magic in it, it most certainly is not magical. ‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
4/5 40% 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

29% Inside (2018) Folks coming in fresh [not having seen the original], and casual horror fans, will more than likely enjoy it.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2018
88% The Post (2018) It's a movie I admire more than I like.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2017
55% 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
49% 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
84% 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
72% Gifted (2017) Heartfelt, and easy to love.‐ Opeeqo
