A 97% Coco (2017) Disney-Pixar's best at least since Toy Story 3.‐ FilmDrunk

A- 93% The Disaster Artist (2017) A broad, winning adaptation of a fantastic book.‐ FilmDrunk

D- 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) The dialogue is stilted, none of the situations seem believable, and most of the jokes are stale. ‐ FilmDrunk

A+ 99% Lady Bird (2017) I'm not sure there's a single unsuccessful moment in this entire film. This was the movie that reminded me how much I can still love a movie. ‐ FilmDrunk

C 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) I felt like Royal Tenenbaum watching Margot's play. ‐ FilmDrunk

B- 54% LBJ (2017) Harrelson shines in an incomplete biopic that would've been better as a miniseries, and, typical of Boomer filmmakers, is far too reverent to the usual JFK myths.‐ FilmDrunk

C+ 76% Thank You for Your Service (2017) There's a good story here, and an important one, but it requires a scalpel, and Jason Hall seems to have only packed a butcher knife. ‐ FilmDrunk

89% Only the Brave (2017) Only The Brave feels like the world's best two-hour beer and/or pick-up truck commercial, and I mean that as a compliment.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
B- 80% Chuck (2017) The acting saves Chuck from being just the umpteenth white boxer biopic, but we're fast approaching the copy-of-a-copy-of-a-copy stage of this genre.‐ FilmDrunk

83% Marshall (2017) To me it feels cheap and simplistic, but maybe that's only kind of tale a jury or a focus group can be trusted to handle.‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
C 83% Marshall (2017) A morally simplistic fairy tale that's maybe a good introduction to Marshall for middle schoolers, but doesn't do justice to the hard truths he fought for.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
B 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Worthy of the title 'Blade Runner' for the imagery alone, and worth your time even if the central conceit is somehow both convoluted and repetitive. See it on the biggest screen you can.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
B+ 86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Unlike most non-fiction period pieces, Professor Marston's subject matter is still dangerous, which is why Angela Robinson brilliantly presents it in prestige biopic packaging.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2017
C- 5% Flatliners (2017) The potential schlock classic about how killing yourself is sexy and cool is unfortunately trapped inside a dull horror movie.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2017
B- 94% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2017) I don't know what the hell I just watched, but it looked great. (Also, would it kill them to shoot an establishing shot once in a while?)‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
B 91% Thelma (2017) A fantastical coming-of-age drama abstract enough that it's sure to be divisive. Didn't entirely resonate with me, but the level of craft is unmatched.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
B 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Another arch, often hilarious bit of surreality from Lanthimos, but one that again paints itself into a narrative corner.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
B+ 86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) It's not a revolution in biopic storytelling, but it treats all of its characters like real people, not narrative speedbumps, and that's refreshing. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
D 34% American Assassin (2017) Imagine 'Bourne' as written by a jingoistic fifth grader.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
B- 82% Brad's Status (2017) Clever enough, but Brad is too obnoxious to be relatable and not crazy enough to be fascinating. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
C- 11% 9/11 (2017) The director Raging Bull 2 has done it again. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
B 85% It (2017) Two things that are true: 'It' is a fun movie, and unexamined nostalgia is poison.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
D 43% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) All of the visceral, easygoing realism of the original is out, replaced by try-hard joke attempts and manic storytelling so convoluted that the only thing communicated is a general sense of desperation. ‐ FilmDrunk

91% Good Time (2017) Just when you think that's where Good Time is going, it zags. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) [Everybody Wants Some!!!] is an eventually enjoyable movie that I almost walked out of.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
78% Keanu (2016) To force a bad cat metaphor, Keanu feels like a ball of yarn that Key and Peele were content to just keep batting in the air without unraveling.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
58% Lemon (2017) I'd love to bottle what Lemon has and sprinkle it on other comedies.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
B+ 83% The Trip to Spain (2017) The Trip movies have become to me like a favorite restaurant, where I know exactly what I'm going to get and couldn't be happier about it.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
B- 87% Wind River (2017) Taylor Sheridan is a talented storyteller who's starting to seem like a bit of a meathead. This is a beautiful movie with some ugly impulses.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
C+ 83% Detroit (2017) Despite solid performances from a brilliant cast, Detroit's take on the subject matter is inconsistent and confusing, glossing over motive to wallow in torture. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2017
D 38% Kidnap (2017) Feels like what happens when you sell a vague concept and just sort of yadda yadda the actual script.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
A- 79% Brigsby Bear (2017) A weird little charmer.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2017
B+ 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) The plot is overwritten, like all recent spy movies, but this one actually has style, and some of the best action choreography in years. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
A- 92% Dunkirk (2017) Marks Christopher Nolan's final transition from being the "twisty plot guy" to the "awe-inspiring visuals guy." A welcome change.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2017
C+ 17% Wish Upon (2017) A reasonably fun combination of The Box and Final Destination, in which the protagonist takes far too long to understand the basic premise of the movie.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
B- 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) An admirable attempt at spending $200 million to top The Fifth Element which succeeds visually but doesn't quite have the personality. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
A 93% Baby Driver (2017) Edgar Wright has an uncanny ability to identify these weird little snippets of pop culture detritus and not only sample them, but in the process give them soul.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
C- 18% Once Upon a Time in Venice (2017) Feels sort of like a drunk, racist dad's take on 'The Big Lebowski,' which is often terrible but occasionally surreal.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
D- 21% The Book of Henry (2017) A bafflingly inept attempt to combine Wes Anderson whimsy and Nicholas Sparks melodrama, with a singularly tone deaf tastelessness. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
D 16% The Mummy (2017) A cynical, incomprehensible compilation of things corporate America thinks viewers love.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
C+ 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Wonder Woman is a positive symbol, but the ideology of the movie itself is fuzzy and somewhat disappointing. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2017
C+ 18% Baywatch (2017) Charming enough, but it hits a dead spot somewhere between homage and parody. Hey, at least the pretty people had fun. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted May 24, 2017
A- 52% War Machine (2017) That it's funny, incisive, effective in its satire AND true to its source material is damn near a miracle.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
C+ 71% The Commune (Kollektivet) (2017) Vinterberg eschews a facile "take" on the idea of the commune and chooses instead to focus on his characters -- who are unfortunately baffling.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
C- 29% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Guy Ritchie's nü-metal retelling of the Arthur legend leaves the old story largely unparsed and just sort of draws a tribal tat on it.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
A- 83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Retains many of the expected stock superhero storylines, but makes up for it with charm and visual brilliance.‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
F 16% The Circle (2017) This attempt at a cautionary tale is badly outdated, too vague to be compelling, and bafflingly executed. Basically a completely miss. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
B 71% Buster's Mal Heart (2017) Buster's Mal Heart is magical realist and arthouse conventional in a lot of ways, but it has such charm and an odd sense of humor that you can forgive it. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2017
B- 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Basically the action movie equivalent of your dad catching you smoking a cigarette and then making you finish the pack. ‐ FilmDrunk
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
B 25% Unforgettable (2017) Unforgettable doesn't exactly reinvent the psycho ex movie genre, but it's fun while it lasts. ‐ FilmDrunk
