2.5/5 79% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) There's more plot than "celebrity karaoke in Greece", and the songs generally support the narrative in some way rather than just providing space for the next showstopper.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 88% White Fang (Croc-Blanc) (2018) One of the most interesting attempts to do something different with the medium of computer-generated 3-D animation that has come along in a really long time.‐ Alternate Ending

1.5/5 30% Deep Rising (1998) One of the big problems with this film compiled out of big problems: it has awful characters, and awful performances bringing them to life.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) There's a fair amount of comic business that exists more or less solely for the animators to play around with their characters' boneless bodies and endlessly malleable faces.‐ Alternate Ending

1/5 No Score Yet Mardi Gras Massacre (2005) A sizable portion of the film consists of watching uncomfortably-framed wide shots of people having deeply uninteresting conversations.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) It's not that this is bad, for a 21st Century slasher film, but it's also not "good".‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 36% Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) I'm at a loss to say whether any of this is good or bad, and whether "good and bad" are meaningful words in the first place.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Very much a big, dumb, fun movie, the best triangulation of those three qualities in quite some while.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
2/5 46% The Land That Time Forgot (1975) A drab little splat of a movie, a swashbuckling adventure about a mysterious island full of dinosaurs in which the adventure is inert.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 51% Superfly (2018) As dodgy, doomed to fail remakes go, Superfly actually does a pretty good job justifying its own existence.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
4.5/5 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) Utterly infatuated with being a superhero movie, and because It's animated, it gets to be a way better one.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
4/5 92% Superfly (1972) It has a subdued psychological acuity that goes far beyond the grubby baseline of the normal exploitation film.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Toni Collette does some extraordinary work, acting through a series of contorted faces, guttural howls, and despondent line deliveries.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) If it suffers, it mostly only suffers in comparison to the other Ocean's films.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 73% Pink Floyd - The Wall (1982) One of the more exceptional, unprecedented films to ever come from Great Britain, a guttural howl of rage at the darkest aspects of English culture.‐ Alternate Ending

2/5 97% The Rider (2018) Acting is best left to actors, lest you get this kind of shiftless, awkwardly mumbling emptiness going on for the entire length of a very drearily slow-moving movie.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
3.5/5 73% Adrift (2018) An admirable little piece of storytelling, far beyond the basic requirements of a summertime survival thriller.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
2/5 47% The Perfect Storm (2000) We needn't appeal to the fact that this was all a true story to find it horribly dispiriting: it does a perfectly bad job just as a self-contained story in its own right.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 76% Lu Over the Wall (Yoake tsugeru Rû no uta) (2018) This high-energy narrative flow is very much manifest in the animation... a tremendous achievement.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 85% Disobedience (2018) The film's 114-minute running time is hardly outrageous for a story of this type, but it feels a whole lot longer than that.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 84% Cargo (2018) A pretty nifty little psychological drama in genre film clothes.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
2.5/5 40% Anon (2018) The big aesthetic misstep is the film's claustrophobic, suffocating reliance on a greyed-out color palette.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted May 28, 2018
3/5 53% Willow (1988) A charming, albeit greatly compromised attempt at doing a monumental epic in just two hours... the most handsome and technologically accomplished film of the '80s fantasy cycle.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted May 28, 2018
1.5/5 6% Solo (1996) An altogether nonsensical bit of action/sci-fi garbage that marries a dreadful script with hilariously chintzy action.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted May 27, 2018
4/5 94% Romeo and Juliet (1968) This more-or-less unprecedented naturalism in screen Shakespeare is part and parcel of why the film works so well, and why it was such a huge success in 1968.‐ Alternate Ending
