2.5/5 45% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) Enough of the jokes land that it's not a complete grind.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 62% The Ice Cream Truck (2017) There's immense charm to the film's engagement with hoary slasher film tropes played mostly sincerely, but with a sense of humor about it.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 90% Raw (2017) It's a terribly good snapshot of being a teenage girl arriving at college and being totally overstimulated... and it's also a terribly good schlocky horror film.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 93% Rat Film (2017) It's an arresting piece of work, but it's also disordered and shapeless.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 100% Dawson City: Frozen Time (2017) It's quite an interesting thing: more a work of historiography than of filmmaking.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 88% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) At 163 minutes, the film has a lot of room, and a lot of plot to fill it with, but the first 100 minutes are largely taken up with detective movie boilerplate.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 86% Cult of Chucky (2017) A movie besotted with horror movies, with nary a trace of irony.‐ Alternate Ending

2/5 50% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Bloated with subplots and go-nowhere add-ons, some of which are obvious fan pandering, some of which can't even rise to that level.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 No Score Yet Tam Cam: The Untold Story (2017) The most appealing thing, by far, is that it's so resolutely unserious about being a fluffy, silly fairy story.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 98% The Fits (2016) Uses visual arts to indicate the interior sensation of one of the year's most fascinating and rewarding characters.‐ Alternate Ending

2/5 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) There are undoubtedly worse video game adaptations... [but] Assassin's Creed is plenty bad in its own right and hardly deserves pity points.‐ Alternate Ending

2/5 73% Sing (2016) Puts six massively trite subplots into a blender... and mashes them into a uniform paste that can be spackled across 108 unreasonably long minutes.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 No Score Yet The Wizard of Speed and Time (1989) I doubt very much that any feature could capture the pure delight of the short this is based on, and this particular feature misses that mark by quite a lot.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 85% Lion (2016) The beats aren't anything new; the value is in the execution, and that's great.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) One of the year's best pure character studies.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 87% A Monster Calls (2017) A greedy tearjerker, greedy and shameless - and effective, to be perfectly fair.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 83% Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991) Isn't quite a documentary and definitely isn't narrative fiction, but is some kind of of narrative written out of the material of the real world.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 99% Cameraperson (2016) A tribute to what happens in front of the camera, how it is captured, and the eternal present of cinema.‐ Alternate Ending

5/5 89% When Harry Met Sally (1989) An outright masterpiece of romance, comedy, and cinema itself.‐ Alternate Ending

1.5/5 57% Deep Blue Sea (1999) Rare is the terrible film that's this upbeat and delightful and entertaining.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2017
1/5 11% Nine Lives (2016) A lot of movies are bad, and a lot of children's movies in particular are very bad. Nine Lives is something else - it is wrong.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 94% Neruda (2016) A great piece of cinema and a great attempt to engage with history and pro-people politics.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 45% Everything, Everything (2017) The film goes to some enormously dark, cruel extremes, apparently without noticing that it has done so.‐ Alternate Ending

1.5/5 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) A rather offensive misfire of style.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2017
2/5 10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) At least a touch more zany than the last one, even if it's still choking a bit on its own attempts to feint at respectability.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 70% Casshern (2004) When Casshern is tapping into a sense of awe, it most fully earns the somewhat exhausting world-building it takes to get there.‐ Alternate Ending

1.5/5 19% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) It resides smack dab in the middle of a franchise that has ranged from "bad" to "irredeemably awful".‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2017
4/5 98% Apocalypse Now (1979) Good or bad, success or failure, this is a magnificent, gonzo piece of cinema, and the art form would be far lesser if it had never existed.‐ Alternate Ending

0.5/5 23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Pure incompetence.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2017

4/5 96% Sideways (2004) A beautiful little chamber dramedy about four sharply-drawn characters played with a very lovely mixture of nuance and showmanship.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2017
5/5 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) It tells a profound emotional story using only a few simple ingredients, and it only works in animation.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) In its emotional maturity and visual beauty, this is as dignified and fine as any children's movie I've seen in an inordinately long time.‐ Alternate Ending

2/5 31% Monster Trucks (2017) Confronts us with the spectacle of a great many people trying very desperately to convince us what FUN we're having, but the seams show all over the place.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 No Score Yet Messiah of Evil (1973) It's an amazing success at instilling the sensation of waiting for something awful and nightmarish to happen.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2017
1/5 17% Friend Request (2017) There's no indication... that Friend Request has the smallest clue how actual college students use anything at all.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 53% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) Finally places the franchise securely in territory it's managed to avoid twice, against all odds: this movie pretty obviously just wants to sell toys to kids.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
4/5 91% Blow Out (1981) A wonderful thriller, densely plotted and so full of thematic resonance that it's almost incapable of supporting its own weight.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2017
4.5/5 88% First They Killed My Father (2017) Combines a frank look at the atrocities with fluid, chronologically ambiguous impressionism.‐ Alternate Ending

3/5 83% A United Kingdom (2017) [David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike] generate enough heat to light up the entirety of what would otherwise be a pretty dim and drab motion picture.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
3.5/5 83% Beach Rats (2017) An exceptionally satisfying exercise in otherwise unimaginative cinematic realism.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
2.5/5 35% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) Offers the strange spectacle of an action movie with a world-class action hero and unbearably bad action walking hand in hand.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
3/5 60% The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005) Could surely be a lot better, but there's much to enjoy in the film that exists, with its organic mixture of comic tones, and generally upbeat attitude of breezy fun.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
3/5 88% 20th Century Women (2017) The lovely moments outweigh the bad ones by a meaningful margin.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
4/5 96% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) It's awfully, though hobbled from the word "go" by one fundamental decision: it picks the wrong protagonist.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
3.5/5 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) An act of merry self-critique that absorbs all of... the criticisms that have been levied against the brand over the years, and enthusiastically agrees with them.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
2.5/5 11% Kung Pow! Enter the Fist (2002) Its best gags are great, but they make up something like 5% of the whole, and its middle-tier gags are pretty mediocre.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
4.5/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) It's beautiful, obsessed with surfaces, and drenched in blood, and the results couldn't be more striking.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
2.5/5 67% The Wall (2017) At best a tossed-off lark that taxes its creator not at all, and at worst feels like some exercise that everybody involve decided to joylessly grind through.‐ Alternate Ending
