26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) Ever wondered what Cinderella, The Godfather and Teen Wolf would be like if they were one movie? No? Well, too bad because Jupiter Ascending exists.‐ Rogues Portal

59% High-Rise (2016) It really is an interesting piece of cinema for those who are willing to slog through the in-your-face statements about the state of the world.‐ Rogues Portal

78% The First Monday in May (2016) The documentary is filled with the most interesting people and I honestly think I'd watch individual documentaries on almost all of them.‐ Rogues Portal

91% Presenting Princess Shaw (2016) I wish I could say that I loved this movie... However, overall the whole thing felt pretty poorly executed.‐ Rogues Portal

85% Star Trek Beyond (2016) The special effects are amazing and the makeup for the alien characters is just fantastic.‐ Rogues Portal

89% Doctor Strange (2016) I wasn't super jazzed about Cumberbatch. SO, that being said, I think he did a fantastic job in the role.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2018
78% The Last King (2016) It wasn't an action-packed flick that kept me on the edge of my seat but I enjoyed the history and the scenery and the Tormund. Oh, and the Vikings on skis.‐ Rogues Portal

85% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) The film is dark and goes all the places that conventionally would be steered away from.‐ Rogues Portal

89% Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 (2016) I somehow wasn't quite prepared for just HOW bananas it actually was? That should be the end of my review, to be honest.‐ Rogues Portal

19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) The dialogue feels clunky and forced, like you're watching an hour and a half long improv set where nobody really knows where the script is going and everyone's just rolling with it.‐ Rogues Portal

37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) I enjoyed the film for what it was, hokey dialogue and all.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2018
17% The Space Between Us (2017) Has a few groan worthy moments when the dialogue is painfully predictable and corny but it's charming and sweet, a type of film that we all need every now and again.‐ Rogues Portal

47% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) It's not a bad film at all. It's a little dry at times but the story is interesting and compelling.‐ Rogues Portal

41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Goth is brilliant as a confused, brainwashed, and innocent girl... she's definitely an intriguing actress that I could see her getting a lot more work in period pieces and other horror films.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2018
94% Arrival (2016) This may seem like a frivolous thing to take away from the film but after seeing women depicted in such a way for a long enough time, you start to pick up and appreciate when women are portrayed better.‐ Rogues Portal

93% Logan (2017) Dafne Keen plays Laura and hot diggity dog, she's actual perfection.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
99% Get Out (2017) The performances are outstanding, as is the writing and directing. I definitely was tense watching the film (again, I'm a wimp) but I don't think you need to be deterred from the film if you're not a fan of horror.‐ Rogues Portal

75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) The story is great for what this movie is. It doesn't drag, it provides you with what you want (Tom Hiddleston and also the giant gorilla).‐ Rogues Portal

18% Assassin's Creed (2016) The special effects weren't all that great either... honestly, I've seen some D-list movies that have better effects than Assassin's Creed.‐ Rogues Portal

75% The Void (2017) From what little I did know about The Void, I thought that the film would look a lot more low-budget. In truth, the film looked fantastic and I was once again surprised by the overall quality.‐ Rogues Portal

37% Snatched (2017) It's a solid passable movie that I enjoyed while I was watching it, but could have definitely been better.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
67% Alien: Covenant (2017) It wasn't Prometheus so I guess that's something.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
45% Rough Night (2017) Everybody in Rough Night is ACTUAL PERFECTION. The chemistry is all there and the whole ensemble work SO WELL together to bring it all home here.‐ Rogues Portal

17% Baywatch (2017) The trailer made me believe that it wanted to be a comedy spoof of the original. I think that was the intent, but the film was all over the place.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
83% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) The fight choreography was absolutely ridiculous but in the best possible way.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
91% Ponyo (2009) The score by Joe Hisaishi perfectly captures the essence of what's going on throughout the entire film... It evokes emotion and helps add so much to the film to connect you to it.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
No Score Yet Impossible Horror (2017) Filled with more atmospheric horror as opposed to jump scares, anyone can sit down and enjoy this film for what it is.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
94% My Neighbor Totoro (1988) The theme of innocent love is so prevalent and it feels good to watch unconditional displays of it, even within an animated fictional film.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) You can tell that everyone in the film had a lot of fun working together on the project. All of the actors just seem to be that much more charismatic on screen.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
93% Princess Mononoke (Mononoke-hime) (1999) There are some movies that are so special that it's almost like watching it for the first time every single time. Princess Mononoke is one of those films.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
87% Howl's Moving Castle (2005) The rich landscapes and colours just jump off the screen at you in the best possible ways. Each character has such unique features and expressions that make them truly stand out.‐ Rogues Portal

87% Wind River (2017) Unfortunately, [Sheridan] just didn't do a great job of making it about the missing and murdered indigenous people so much as he instead made it about another boring white guy.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Charlize Theron is a great choice in virtually every film she's in, but Leitch brought out such a coldness to her that I don't think I'd really seen before.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
97% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2017) I found the plot slow and while sometimes I can get through that, the character arcs weren't there either to really draw me back in.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
No Score Yet Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas Is You (2017) The film is purely family friendly and made solely for the intended audience.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
No Score Yet Champion (2017) There's a lot of things to cry "WHYYYYYY" into the sky to when it comes to this movie, but I think the honkytonk open source country music that's playing as the score during the film may be one of the worst offenders.‐ Rogues Portal

97% Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) All of it is just beautiful.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
90% I, Tonya (2018) Robbie emotes so strongly and puts forward the performance of a lifetime within I, Tonya. Every single thing that she felt throughout the movie, I felt in my theatre seat.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
50% Conor McGregor: Notorious (2017) If you're not a fan of McGregor, there's no real story here for you to get invested in.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
86% American Made (2017) I spent a lot of the film just feeling like it's ridiculous that these awful men just keep living on in our memories as we glorify their lives of crime.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
70% Happy Death Day (2017) I don't know about you, but if I was continually murdered and woke up only to start the day over again, that would probably be the first thing on my mind: who the eff killed me!?‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
14% Woody Woodpecker (2017) I think it's safe to say that this movie will be the bane of your existence if you're watching it without a child to please.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
0% The Stolen (2017) The film moves at a snails pace and while it shows off a lot of beautiful scenery, it takes about 30 minutes for something to happen outside of the initial hubbaloo that sets Charlotte off in the first place.‐ Rogues Portal
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
47% Red Sparrow (2018) There's no way I can write this review without mentioning the absurd amounts of rape, sexual assault, torture, and other horrific and hard to watch moments that are placed in the film for next to no reason.‐ Rogues Portal
