4/5 85% Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) The strangest... most broken... most tonally discordant of the Indiana Joneses, and for all these reasons it is the one that feels the most like its own thing.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Full of barely-defined characters having simulacrums of relationships with each other; but at least it's a looker.‐ Alternate Ending

5/10 19% The Jungle Book 2 (2003) Not a good movie, and probably better left unwatched. Which, for a DisneyToon sequel, is actually a pretty good place to land.‐ Alternate Ending

9/10 98% 101 Dalmatians (1961) One of the most entirely fun, entertaining of all Disney features.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 100% Strong Island (2017) A film about a systemic injustice that seems all the crueler for how vividly it depicts the personal effect of that injustice.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 85% Wandâfuru raifu (After Life) (1998) A wild daydream about what might happen to human souls after they die... mostly interested in the most basic, everyday kind of thoughts and feelings.‐ Alternate Ending

1/5 7% Rings (2017) 2017 had a fair number of dodgy horror films, but this unquestionably deserves to rank among the worst.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
3.5/5 83% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) It's not merely that the action is superb in this movie; it's superb without ever repeating itself, and that's all the more impressive because there is a whole lot of it.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
2/5 21% Forever My Girl (2018) A passionless romance about a couple that it's almost impossible to root for.‐ Alternate Ending

0.5/5 26% Proud Mary (2018) I would have assumed that $14 million at least means you can afford some ADR sessions.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 84% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) A terrific work of character animation, world-building, and adventure filmmaking, 102 minutes of visual bliss.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) More comforting than creative, but so warm, fuzzy, and cozy in its comfort that one desperately longs to force it on everybody in earshot.‐ Alternate Ending

3.5/5 No Score Yet Godzilla: Monster Planet (2017) Animation proves to be an exemplary medium for this story, particularly the lovely hybrid animation form used here.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
1/5 No Score Yet Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (2017) This exists because Warner's owned lots of different IPs, and decided to smash them together.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
3/5 58% The Commuter (2018) The best of the Jaume Collet-Serra/Liam Neeson ventures, though there is a pretty narrow range of quality between all of them.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2018
4.5/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Maybe the most heavily, visibly crafted film of 2017, a celebration of the work of making movies wrapped inside a celebration of the work of making dresses.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 85% The Death of Louis XIV (La mort de Louis XIV) (2017) A singular, captivating experience.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2018
4/5 90% Marjorie Prime (2017) 2017's premier example of the concept-heavy indie sci-fi.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2018
3/5 61% Before I Wake (2018) The animating ideas of the project are sound, and Flanagan's handling of the material creates a good mixture of magical realism and slow-developing mystery.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2018
3/5 72% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) Diane Kruger's performance is the best thing in the film and pretty much the only thing that keeps it all yoked together.‐ Alternate Ending

Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2018
2.5/5 51% Downsizing (2017) It has way too much ground to cover, and doesn't know how to cover it.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2018
3/5 77% All the Money in the World (2017) At it's best, the film is at least snappy and watchable; at its worst, it's meandering and bloated Oscarbait.‐ Alternate Ending

Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2018
2/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) A middling biopic that jams on the brakes about every 10 minutes.‐ Alternate Ending

2.5/5 32% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Whatever else is true of the movie, the cast is having fun, and Anna Kendrick gives phenomenal reaction shots.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2018
4/5 83% Lost in Paris (Paris pieds nus) (2017) A featherweight romantic comedy full of many tiny surprises... hardly a single scene goes by without at least one absolutely wonderful visual conceit.‐ Alternate Ending

4/5 87% The Lure (Córki dancingu) (2017) I am sure that there exists in this world viewers for whom there is nothing in all of this, though I genuinely don't know if I can name one.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2018

Read More | Posted Dec 26, 2017

Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2017
3.5/5 89% I, Tonya (2018) It's not like modern cinema is so bloated with postmodern autocritiques of biopic storytelling that this feels anything but striking and unique.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2017
3.5/5 96% Birdboy: The Forgotten Children (Psiconautas, los niños olvidados) (2017) Uses the mutability of animated bodies and the inconsistency of animated space to depict some legitimately terrifying moments of unearthly violence.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2017
4/5 88% The Post (2018) A propulsive, hugely watchable movie, and it has enough of a sense of society, politics, and the course of human history to feel smart in addition to feeling fun.‐ Alternate Ending
