4.5/5 91% Elle (2016) The film is a lot of things, most of them nasty, many of them uncomfortably hilarious.‐ Alternate Ending

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

5/5 95% 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

1/5 15% 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 54% 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

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 89% 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

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 36% 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

3/5 88% 20th Century Women (2017) The lovely moments outweigh the bad ones by a meaningful margin.‐ Alternate Ending

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 90% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
3.5/5 74% Split (2017) The pleasures of Split are ultimately just those of an enormously satisfying B-movie, and God bless it.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
1.5/5 46% Rock Dog (2017) A low-down, no-darn-good movie. But terribly fascinating anyway, if more in theory than actuality.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
4/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Completely fearless in blasting past good sense and good taste in its attempt to capture morbid, weird moments.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
3.5/5 75% The Woman Chaser (2000) If it ends up feeling like a resource-strapped late-'90s indie in a lot of ways, it is a surpassingly ambitious, strange, and enjoyable one.‐ Alternate Ending

5/5 98% King Kong (1933) Probably the most perfect popcorn movie movie ever made by a Hollywood studio.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
2/5 36% Son of Kong (1933) The most spectacular, adventurous parts of the movie are also the most disposable and, frankly, boring.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
1/5 49% King Kong (1976) If this is what bleeding-edge, Oscar-worthy effects work looked like in 1976, it's no wonder that Star Wars made such a gargantuan splash in 1977.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
3.5/5 99% Get Out (2017) Horror movies have bad third acts all the time; the hope is that they have two first acts that are this good, with such an excellent anchor as Daniel Kaluuya.‐ Alternate Ending

0.5/5 0% King Kong Lives (1986) I have never seen a King Kong knock-off more lifeless and almost mean-spirited in its lack of narrative cohesion or functional human characters than this one.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
3/5 84% King Kong (2005) It's a pity that the film is such a miserable slog to start off, because the second that it arrives on Skull Island, it suddenly explodes into life.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 96% The Innocents (1961) Acutely unnerving, magnificently played, and just plain gorgeous.‐ Alternate Ending

0.5/5 No Score Yet Amityville Exorcism (2017) Short and fast as the film is, it's still an enormously draining slog to follow.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
2/5 No Score Yet Amityville: No Escape (2016) Surprisingly good by the standards of the 2010s direct-to-video Amityvilles.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
2/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) Suffers from some inscrutable storytelling.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
1.5/5 68% mother! (2017) An experimental film that's lost sight of what the experiment was supposed to be, a thematic treatise playing peek-a-boo with its themes.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
1.5/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Manages to exactly replicate 90% of what's in the 1991 animated film while also managing to make all of it at least slightly terrible.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
2.5/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) A truly remarkable number of actors seem to be doing, if not their career-worst work, then at least work that they're well-capable of bettering.‐ Alternate Ending

4.5/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) Kristen Stewart is utterly perfect.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
4/5 98% Kedi (2017) Gives us a synoptic vision of Istanbul as filtered through one of that ancient city's most unique traits, the enormous population of quasi-domestic cats roaming its streets.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
4/5 98% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) Downright Dickensian, treating with serious dignity the darkest kind of childhood, one stripped bare of love or any kindness.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
4/5 42% Song to Song (2017) I cannot help but imagine that a version of the film which fully embraced its nature as an experimental film would be more satisfying and powerful.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
3.5/5 89% I don't feel at home in this world anymore. (2017) If not hardly the freshest thing to ever come down the pike, still brightly-paced and winningly pleasurable.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
3/5 100% Sweet Charity (1969) There's nothing per se "bad" about this, though it's awfully musty, and in no hurry to move along.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
4.5/5 97% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) The absolute very best kind of crowdpleaser, the kind that genuinely does seem to have a little something for everyone.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
4.5/5 92% A Quiet Passion (2017) The secret triumph of A Quiet Passion is to foreground the poet's instantaneous wit in front of the more stuffily serious things about her personality.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
2.5/5 29% Hook (1991) Given the inherent importance of children to the Peter Pan universe, it's near fatal that Hook has so many terrible child roles.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
2.5/5 57% Stephen King's It (1990) The only truly memorable or even slightly frightening thing is Tim Curry.‐ Alternate Ending
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
3.5/5 85% It (2017) A film about summertime friendships easily on par with fellow King adaptation Stand by Me.‐ Alternate Ending
