3/5 57% Book Club (2018) A movie whose appeal lies, almost in its entirety, in watching its four lead actors getting a victory lap on account of being completely awesome.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) 11 minutes longer than Deadpool, and much less focused in its narrative momentum, but it somehow feels breezier and bouncier.‐ Alternate Ending

.5/5 0% Theodore Rex (1995) So what of this shame of New Line, the film that seemed like a no-win disaster to the star of Eddie and Made in America? It's pretty much exactly that bad, in fact‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 98% First Reformed (2018) A tremendous character study, and a severe depiction of how guilt and the desire to punish oneself manifest.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 38% Life of the Party (2018) A film that's hard to hate, and equally hard to love...McCarthy is charming, and the film quite refuses to challenge her.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 25% Breaking In (2018) A ratty little thriller that knows just how trashy is the right amount of trashy.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 85% Back to School (1986) Well-written, tightly-edited triviality, with really likable characters and actors working hard to make it seem pointlessly easy.‐ Alternate Ending

2/5 28% Overboard (2018) Charming and harmless, except for the gaping hole where its two leads' romantic attraction is meant to be.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 92% Lean on Pete (2018) A clearheaded, unsentimental portrayal of the perilous life of poor Americans living outside of the social mainstream.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 95% 24 Frames (2018) I can't imagine a more invigorating, counter-intuitively perfect final gesture for this of all directors to leave us with.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Incredibly good at building up that lacerating, painful feeling through image, through sound, through psychology, through the agonies on Phoenix's face.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 86% In the Last Days of the City (Akher ayam el madina) (2018) The amount of calculation that went into assembling this film from a towering mountain of footage is absolutely evident.‐ Alternate Ending

2/5 55% Godard Mon Amour (Le redoutable) (2018) Pitched at an audience that has an encyclopedic recall for individual scenes from 50-year-old art movies, but the sense of humor never rises above the most basic sitcom stuff.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
4/5 100% Minding the Gap (2018) The best coming-of-age movie of the 2010s.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
2/5 52% Rampage (2018) Never succeeds in being cheesy matinee fun. Worse yet, it doesn't seem to have crossed its gloppy, solemn mind for this to have even been a possibility.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
4/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) One effect of this is the extraordinary pleasure of seeing imagination brought to life without any compromise.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
4.5/5 89% Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios) (1988) A film whose overwhelming liveliness provides an enthusiastic, ebullient rebuke to the despair of its characters.‐ Alternate Ending

5/5 94% The Green Fog (2018) As revelatory as it is silly.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
3/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) The pervasive and sometimes actually damaging problem is that the film has a non-diegetic musical score, and it really shouldn't.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) The film captures, as do the Hughes films it nakedly wants to be, something pleasantly casual about the rhythms of teenage life.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
4.5/5 96% The Death of Stalin (2018) The funniest, smartest, most unforgiving comedy in years, and the best satiric film of the 2010s.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
0.5/5 8% God's Not Dead 2 (2016) Utterly impossible and hapless.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
1/5 14% God's Not Dead (2014) Its ineptitude at depicting recognisable human behavior is matched only by its ineptitude at following any known rules of narrative.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
3/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) Bright, shiny, packed to the brim with detail, and totally without passion.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2018
2/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Awfully boring all in all, and that's a terrible problem for such an empty-headed popcorn movie.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
2.5/5 79% Unsane (2018) Hung up on a cinematography gimmick that never comes within a mile of justifying itself, and too ramshackle as a script to work in spite of that gimmick.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
2/5 29% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) The film isn't 'bad', so much as it is flagrantly mediocre.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
3/5 80% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) It's very much Annette Bening and Jamie Bell's film when all is said and done, and they are stunning in it.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
2.5/5 20% All Dogs Go To Heaven 2 (1996) Showily bizarre.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
3.5/5 No Score Yet Forgotten (2018) A little sick, a little sad, and a lot confusing and mysterious in all the right ways.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
3.5/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) The film's thinness as a story is largely compensated for by Daniela Vega imposing a personality on the character and material that aren't quite there without her.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
4.5/5 87% Kaidan (Kwaidan) (Ghost Stories) (1964) A film that captures something deep and real about the remoteness of traditional folklore.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
2.5/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) A more tawdry sex romp would have been fun; a more balanced, honest, tightly-plotted spy thriller could have been brainy.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2018
2.5/5 39% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) It's depressing that's not very good, given what an obvious, tangible passion project this is.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
4/5 91% On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl) (2018) The barnburner of an opening leads straight to an equally audacious plot hook.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2018
4/5 82% Game Night (2018) Even if the humor in the film is merely pleasant and conventional for the most part, the characters themselves are massively enjoyable.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 96% My Fair Lady (1964) It works fine. It works no better than that, is all.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2018
4.5/5 87% Annihilation (2018) Quietly, pervasively uncomfortable.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2018
2/5 74% Crash (2004) Outside of the excellent cast doing their best in impossible situations, there's virtually nothing enjoyable or aesthetically admirable here.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2018
5/5 100% It's Such a Beautiful Day (2012) The feature built out of those three parts thus lacks anything "new"; but the experience of watching them all in one smooth stream is nothing shy of a revelation. ‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
2/5 15% Mute (2018) I know for a rock-solid fact that this was Duncan Jones's great passion project, but with the finished product glibly playing out before my eyes, I cannot begin to fathom why.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 81% Early Man (2018) Might not be a particularly impressive film, and it darn sure isn't a surprising film, but it is a wonderfully pleasant & pleasurable film.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 97% Black Panther (2018) Comes as close as a film possibly can to sloughing off all of the problems that persistently cling to this franchise.‐ Alternate Ending
