58% Kalifornia (1993) It is pulpy trash masquerading as an art film, ultimately failing to be either. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

60% Breakthrough (2019) Though the film is certainly a step in the right direction, it is still not particularly dynamic. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

90% Shazam! (2019) The film's enthusiasm may be a little overwhelming at times, but it is contagious. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

37% Glass (2019) A film every bit as stupefying and meandering as Shyamalan's worst efforts. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

91% Widows (2018) A thriller in name only... strong acting and character work, but unfocused and overly mired in theme. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

57% Raising Cain (1992) While film fans might enjoy DePalma's stylistic homages to Hitchcock, and John Lithgow's total commitment to concept and character, there is little else to recommend about Raising Cain. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

57% Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer (2018) An effective true crime story that occasionally loses its way, but is able to get back on course enough to have an impact on the audience. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

58% Prince of Darkness (1987) It all feels so small and inconsequential; words that definitely should not apply to a film seemingly about the End of the World. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

67% American Chaos (2018) Rating: Fresh Pull Quote: "With so many taking hardline political stances, James Stern's attempt at injecting some compassion into the proceedings is a welcome relief, even if it does feel a bit soft at times. - Battleship Pretension EDIT

38% Unbroken: Path to Redemption (2018) Unbroken: Path to Redemption contains more good than bad. Director Harold Cronk's stylistic flourishes only occasionally enhance the story, but they rarely impede the telling of it. The resulting film is competent and sometimes compelling. - Battleship Pretension EDIT
