83% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Deepwater Horizon lacks the fun found in big dumb action movies, the suspense found in thrillers, and the emotional heft found in dramas; it just floats in a humdrum middle ground. ‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2016
71% Buster's Mal Heart (2017) Buster's Mal Heart isn't a light watch. If you don't make an effort to keep up, the movie will leave you in its dust. Those patient enough to untangle Smith's topsy-turvy narrative structure will find an underlying beauty in her work.‐ Film School Rejects

63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) The western genre is defined by its gritty and grimy aesthetic. Fuqua crafts his world with too little tumbleweed and too much Hollywood sheen.‐ Film School Rejects
