35% Super Troopers 2 (2018) What Super Troopers 2 is missing, and what the original more-or-less had, is that underdog dynamic. A big part of the problem is that the troopers are in charge this time, and they're mostly just abusing their power for petty, selfish reasons.‐ TheWrap

No Score Yet Alex Strangelove (2018) All of these personal touches add whimsy to an otherwise familiar John Hughes-esque formula, full of awkward comic relief sidekicks, experimentations with drugs, romantic misunderstandings and a cool, often retro soundtrack.‐ TheWrap

4.1/10 15% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Blumhouse's Truth or Dare is what happens when high concepts crash.‐ IGN Movies

9.2/10 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) It's not just a great thriller, it's a great film about psychological collapse.‐ IGN Movies

72% Final Portrait (2018) Tucci takes our collective urge to excuse bad behavior in the name of art, a topic we desperately need to consider right now, but he doesn't really put it under a microscope to see why that happens or how that relationship works. ‐ TheWrap

20% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) As directed by John Stevenson, it's a mildly amusing matinee adventure, and superior to Gnomeo and Juliet in every way.‐ TheWrap

2.1/10 9% Game Over, Man! (2018) Game Over, Man! is a sloppy production, with screaming and bullying used as a placeholder for actual jokes.‐ IGN Movies

7.8/10 79% Unsane (2018) Unsane is a creepy little thriller, with a concept that could terrify just about anybody, and a plot that wobbles but ultimately stays on the rails.‐ IGN Movies

9.5/10 91% Isle of Dogs (2018) Isle of Dogs is one of Wes Anderson's best movies, an imaginative and amusing travelogue through incredible settings, populated by wonderful characters, with a lot of heart and even a little insight.‐ IGN Movies

92% Journey's End (2018) This new film doesn't have a particularly new take on the material. It's Journey's End, told again, and told quite well. So whether or not it will astound you has a lot to do with how familiar you are with the source material.‐ TheWrap

4/10 40% Gringo (2018) It comes as no surprise that a movie as aimless as Gringo would miss the mark. It's a series of chaotic events connected by unbelievable characters and lousy coincidence, with nary a point to be found.‐ IGN Movies

4.9/10 20% The Outsider (2018) Organized crime may be organized, but it's hard to imagine that it's actually as dull as The Outsider makes it out to be.‐ IGN Movies

3/10 17% Death Wish (2018) Death Wish takes the serious topic of vigilante violence and reduces it to melodramatic hero worship, and it's not even particularly good at that. The action is forgettable and the plot barely holds together.‐ IGN Movies

2.5/10 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Red Sparrow is too disturbing and brutal to be popcorn entertainment, and by trying to make the uncomfortable storylines and interminable torture sequences palatable for the audience, it completely undermines its ability to operate as a serious drama.‐ IGN Movies

59% Every Day (2018) The story probably can't help posing more questions than it could ever reasonably answer, and the great cast goes a long way toward smoothing out the creases.‐ TheWrap
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
9/10 82% Game Night (2018) It takes real intelligence to make the best dumb jokes. Game Night has plenty of both, combining skilled filmmaking and ridiculous gags in equal measure, and letting the seriousness and silliness play off of each other for maximum effect.‐ IGN Movies

2.8/10 50% Hellraiser: Judgment (2018) The imagery is creepy and the pacing is brisk, but the story is a faded carbon copy of other, better serial killer thrillers, and the new additions to the Hellraiser mythology rob the Cenobites of their deviant allure and otherworldly menace.‐ IGN Movies

3/10 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Fifty Shades Freed concludes the trilogy as it began, with a romance you can't believe in, endless montages of affluence, lousy dialogue, weak plotting, and -- admittedly -- a heck of a lot of sex.‐ IGN Movies

4.9/10 14% Winchester (2018) A film about a labyrinth filled with ghosts quickly becomes methodical and familiar, stranding a great cast in an inert supernatural thriller.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 85% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) The familiar story and underdeveloped characters aren't nearly as magical as the animation, but there's still a lot to enjoy in Mary and the Witch's Flower, even if it's not Hiromasa Yonebayashi's best.‐ IGN Movies

6.9/10 42% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) The Death Cure gets stuck with all the loose ends from the other, better Maze Runner movies, and spends too much time wrapping them up and not enough time kicking butt. But the butts that do get kicked get kicked, but hard.‐ IGN Movies

6.3/10 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) The Last Key may be somewhat engaging but it's also sloppy and doesn't amount to much, when all is said and done, except maybe - and only maybe - to insidiously (ha!) lay the foundation for a new addition to this franchise in the future.‐ IGN Movies

5/10 73% Hostiles (2018) It's not entertaining, it's not illuminating, it's not even complicated. It's mostly just a bummer.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
7.9/10 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) The Greatest Showman is wildly entertaining even when it's spectacularly false, which is a lot of the time. But everyone is enjoying themselves on-screen, so you might as well enjoy yourself too.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 78% All the Money in the World (2017) At its best, All the Money in the World is a rich and exciting story about a woman trapped in a universe of apathetic and powerful men, fighting her way out any which way she can. At its worst it's a well-shot but ultimately middling thriller.‐ IGN Movies

5/10 51% Downsizing (2017) It's not very funny, it's not very dramatic. There's a spark of intelligence here, a valid critique of doomsday culture and escapism, but it's the sort of message you can easily get off of a cocktail napkin.‐ IGN Movies

7.8/10 90% I, Tonya (2018) Margot Robbie stars as Tonya Harding, and she lights every firecracker at her disposal, giving a truly explosive performance inside a movie that merely pops.‐ IGN Movies

8.8/10 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Gorgeous and unpredictable, and maybe a little indulgent, Phantom Thread is another fascinating drama from Paul Thomas Anderson, with captivating lead performances by Daniel Day-Lewis and Vicky Krieps.‐ IGN Movies

9.3/10 87% The Post (2018) [Steven Spielberg]'s exceptional at using cinematic gravitas to elevate all this jargon into the stuff legends are made of.‐ IGN Movies

9.2/10 99% Lady Bird (2017) Saoirse Ronan gives a standout, brilliant performance and so does Laurie Metcalf as her long-suffering, big-hearted mother. It's a remarkable solo directorial debut from Greta Gerwig.‐ IGN Movies

7.7/10 82% Molly's Game (2018) A competently filmed production with some fine performances, but it lacks the focus and showpersonship that would be necessary to make it feel like more.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
8/10 85% Darkest Hour (2017) Gary Oldman gives an impeccable performance as Winston Churchill in a gorgeously photographed, suspenseful World War II film that suffers from too much hero worship.‐ IGN Movies

9.3/10 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) James Franco directs the film with sensitivity and painstaking detail, and gives a fantastic performance as one of the worst filmmakers -- and one of the most unusual human beings -- ever.‐ IGN Movies

9.1/10 96% Mudbound (2017) Mudbound is a daring approach to a classical narrative, a film that tries to look from multiple perspectives at an intimate human drama that has far-reaching ramifications.‐ IGN Movies

5.8/10 45% The Star (2017) The writing, voice-acting and animation are unremarkable, but they get the job done, and the film's heart seems to be in the right place.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
7.5/10 95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) A lovely place to visit but not particularly absorbing as a narrative, even though Armie Hammer gives an impressive performance.‐ IGN Movies

40% Justice League (2017) It's always engaging, and whatever inconsistencies it has - and it has many - they're all connected through fine character work and a meaningful, unifying theme.‐ CraveOnline

5.2/10 93% Thelma (2017) Trier manages to make a movie about passion that feels almost completely detached, right to the end. ‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
9.1/10 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) A classy, riveting remake, and it will make you want to see even more adventures featuring this particular Poirot.‐ IGN Movies

2/10 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) 'Uncomfortably sinister' isn't really a selling point in a family-friendly comedy.‐ IGN Movies

9.5/10 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Denzel Washington gives a truly remarkable performance in, and as, Roman J. Israel, Esq.‐ IGN Movies

8.5/10 85% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) A terrific samurai thriller with depth of character, and even deeper pools of blood.‐ IGN Movies

8.8/10 83% My Friend Dahmer (2017) Unsettlingly intimate, and nearly bursting with dread.‐ IGN Movies

4.5/10 35% Jigsaw (2017) For the very first time, it feels like the makers of a Saw movie aren't even interested in their own game.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 54% Jungle (2017) Unfortunately our journey with Yossi to these life-changing moments was preceded by an hour of humdrum meandering, so while we can appreciate just how important these revelations may be to him, it doesn't necessarily translate to the viewer.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
7/10 89% Wheelman (2017) The selling point of Wheelman, the idea of a car chase movie that takes place almost entirely within a car, makes Jeremy Rush's film novel but it also makes it rattle a bit.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
3.9/10 8% The Snowman (2017) So cold it's frostbitten, and all the interesting bits seem to have fallen off already.‐ IGN Movies

6.4/10 86% 1922 (2017) Maybe this would have been a great episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, but as a film, it feels too small for its own good. ‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) A whimsical distraction of a movie, and it's worth recommending on that level, but it clearly had the potential to be so much more.‐ CraveOnline

9.5/10 80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Yorgos Lanthimos lures us into his dream and shackles us there, for his own fascinating reasons. The experience is exquisite agony, both revelatory and painful. ‐ IGN Movies
