Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
7/10 88% 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 47% 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 30% 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

7.9/10 54% 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 77% 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 50% 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 89% 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 88% 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 81% 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

8/10 86% 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 44% 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 96% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
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 92% Thelma (2017) Trier manages to make a movie about passion that feels almost completely detached, right to the end. ‐ IGN Movies

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 49% 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 82% My Friend Dahmer (2017) Unsettlingly intimate, and nearly bursting with dread.‐ IGN Movies

4.5/10 34% 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 88% 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

3.9/10 7% The Snowman (2017) So cold it's frostbitten, and all the interesting bits seem to have fallen off already.‐ IGN Movies

6.4/10 88% 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

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 78% 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

7.5/10 83% Marshall (2017) Marshall features some great performances, and might be worth watching just to see Chadwick Boseman alone.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
83% Marshall (2017) Doesn't quite live up to the promise of its powerful, historical premise, but Chadwick Boseman is great in it.‐ CraveOnline

4.8/10 75% The Babysitter (2017) It may be manic enough to amuse some horror fans, but it's so immature -- even about its own immaturity -- that it's difficult to recommend.‐ IGN Movies

8.6/10 88% Only the Brave (2017) You might just be emotionally overwhelmed -- in the best way.‐ IGN Movies

8.3/10 86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) A rich, expressive and intelligent character study about three people who constantly wrestle between their emotions and their intellects.‐ IGN Movies

7.9/10 71% Happy Death Day (2017) It won't scare you, but it will entertain you with a cynical sense of humor and a few clever new twists on a familiar formula.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3.5/10 46% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) It's going to leave fans of the series frustrated and everybody else completely baffled.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
5/10 5% Flatliners (2017) It falls flat as a horror movie but the cast is good enough, and the sci-fi concepts are interesting enough, to keep it from crashing completely.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
5/10 5% Flatliners (2017) Had every opportunity to improve on the original, and it doesn't take most of them. ‐ CraveOnline

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) A breathtaking return to the awe-inspiring and deeply troubled world of Blade Runner.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
8.9/10 91% Gerald's Game (2017) An exquisite, simple, torturously suspenseful thriller.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
7.4/10 82% Cult of Chucky (2017) Big ideas, strong performances and some moments that rank among the best in the series.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
2.5/10 15% Friend Request (2017) It's a sincere, and sincerely inept motion picture, and that combination makes Friend Request the exact opposite of scary. It makes it unintentionally hilarious.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
32% Leatherface (2017) Easily earns the dubious title of the worst Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2017
9.2/10 85% It (2017) It may not be the best Stephen King movie (even though it comes impressively close), but it's probably the MOST Stephen King movie.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
8.3/10 42% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) Jay Baruchel's film uses its immature humor as the starting point for a thoughtful tale about personal evolution and the importance of making sacrifices. You won't see the emotional punch coming until it's uppercutting you in the jaw.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2017
83% Patti Cake$ (2017) A somewhat familiar but earnest and inspirational underdog story.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
63% What Happened to Monday (2017) [Tommy Wirkola] keeps What Happened to Monday moving quickly enough that it's relatively easy to overlook the problems in its conceptualization.‐ CraveOnline
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
3.5/10 11% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) One of those rare examples in which the sequel is technically better than the original, but it's still not a compliment.‐ IGN Movies
