20% 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
79% 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.‐

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

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
91% 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
39% 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 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
51% 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
90% 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
73% Gifted (2017) Heartfelt, and easy to love.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2017
64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Pooh isn't the only thing that's stuffy in Goodbye Christopher Robin...‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) Feel-good magic!‐ Opeeqo
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
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
46% Madame Hyde (2017) 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
52% 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

37% Leap! (2017) Leap! is an absolutely delightful, fun, and at times heartbreaking film that's perfect for girls.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2017
55% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) The LEGO Ninjago Movie is almost as fun and irreverent as the previous installments in this click-together build-a-world of corporate animation.‐ Opeeqo
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2017
54% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) An existential sci-fi opus.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
86% American Made (2017) American Made does everything it should: it educates and it entertains.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
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. ‐

69% mother! (2017) They say necessity is the mother of invention. Well, writer-director Darren Aronofsky's mother! certainly is inventive.‐

3/5 31% Leatherface (2017) While the account is not terribly original, [Alexandre] Bustillo and [Julien] Maury bring a joie de mort giddiness to Leatherface. It's great to see their French New Wave/splatterpunk sensibilities come alive once again...‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2017
3/5 75% Killing Ground (2017) Overall, Killing Ground is a solid thriller and a good one to watch home alone in the dark.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2017
No Score Yet Benjamin Troubles (2015) Snappy, acerbic script by Lee Ross is augmented by first time director Kai Ephron's pathos for his characters and situations. ‐

3/5 92% Midnighters (2018) Although I was able to see where every turn was headed, thanks to the fine filmmaking and able acting, I didn't mind; I was content to just go along for the ride.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 74% Sleight (2017) I just can't recommend you rush to the theater to see it. This movie feels like a practice run. Hopefully the next collaboration between Dillard and Blumhouse - a "survival horror" called Sweetheart - will be better.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
3/5 18% Be Afraid (2017) While I didn't love Be Afraid - it retreads a lot of overly-familiar ground - I liked it. It's worth a look, especially if you're partial to horror nightmares.‐ Dread Central

3.5/5 72% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) While The Blackcoat's Daughter is intriguing and seductive at the start, in the end it doesn't quite live up to the insinuations it made in the beginning.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
4/5 70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) It's definitely a worthy entry -- if not one of the best -- in the Conjuring universe of horror... Annabelle: Creation should be seen late at night, in the dark.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
3.5/5 55% 47 Meters Down (2017) While the movie is not perfect ... 47 Meters Down should please folks who want to see a suspenseful, simple story about survival against all odds.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2017
3/5 29% Camera Obscura (2017) Camera Obscura is more psychological thriller than horror -- in fact, it's not scary at all but there are enough moments of suspense and mystery to make it worth your while.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
3/5 15% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy is overall a fun movie, doing what it says it's going to do: mildly entertain. But in the end, it's just "the meh-my."‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
3/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) While there is an underlying existential anxiety to the whole thing, there's not enough pizzazz to either the visuals or the dialogue to make It Comes at Night worth going to see in the theater.‐ Dread Central
