      Transformers: Rise of the Beasts (2023) Without either Michael Bay’s maximalist flair or Bumblebee’s tenderness, Rise of the Beasts manages to be one of the lesser entries of a saga with an already low bar to clear. - Inverse

      Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023) Across the Spider-Verse nimbly weaves an intricate all-ages blockbuster with rare style and aplomb. It is both magnificent and exhausting, sometimes all at once. - Inverse

      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 brims with animalistic fury and human complexity, beautifully expanding upon the series’ foundational theme of found families. - Inverse

      Renfield (2023) Renfield’s overabundance of worn self-aware humor and inordinate bloodletting collectively amplify its most damning curse of all: the absence of an appealing personality. - Inverse

      The Super Mario Bros. Movie (2023) With a pixel-thin premise and a plot propelled by a candy-induced sugar rush, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is an overstuffed 90 minutes of colorful, inoffensive fun. - Inverse

      Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) At best, Honor Among Thieves is an entertaining (eldritch) blast that harnesses the unbridled spirit of the thing it’s based on. At worst, it’s a noisy blockbuster too comfortable by the warm fires of familiarity. - Inverse

      Inside (2023) Inside evangelizes against the wastefulness of wealth, but its gravest sin is feeling like a waste of time. - Inverse

      Jung_E (2023) Yeon’s latest is altogether a disappointment, lacking both the brain power and the beating heart that made his other movies so full of humanity. - Inverse

      Plane (2023) It’s not that Plane is bad, it’s just so nauseatingly functional that you have to question the circumstances that has led you to watching Plane at all. The only logical conclusion is that you’re on a plane and you’ve got an hour and 47 minutes to kill. - Inverse

      Avatar: The Way of Water (2022) It demands the biggest screen you can find so that its most potent elements — from its impossible scale and skillful spectacle, to its more complete range of emotions and thematic romanticism — can be completely absorbed. - Inverse

      Violent Night (2022) Watching Santa break, impale, and eviscerate faceless bad guys has its charms, but the gore frequently eclipses its grace, and even action aficionados will be left wishing for more. - Inverse

      The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (2022) Funny and just a little bizarre in the ways the Guardians movies have always been, "Holiday Special" is also authentically warm and thoughtful in the same way as a lovely gift from a friend feels. - Inverse

      Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022) An electric standalone sequel by writer/director Rian Johnson with nearly all of the same bugs and features of his predecessor, albeit with new flavoring. - Inverse

      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) "With ruminations on personal loss and the pride of nations, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a monumental epic whose thematic and narrative maturity elevates the superhero genre to breathtaking new heights." - Inverse

      Werewolf by Night (2022) While most of its appeal is merely surface-level novelty — the black and white tragically feels more like an Adobe Premiere filter than a genuine artistic experiment — there is still a transformative experience in meeting Werewolf by Night on its terms. - Inverse

      Black Adam (2022) Ultimately, the needs of the DC Universe butt up against the overwhelming star power of Dwayne Johnson, and the film ends up losing many of the entertaining qualities it might have had. - Inverse

      Vesper (2022) Vesper is a compelling cautionary tale about our precious ecosystem where the eye-pleasing scenery isn’t gorgeous for its pristine looks, but tragically beautiful in its rotting textures. - Inverse

      Prey (2022) This is a multifaceted experience ripe with the kind of blood-pumping adrenaline common in action movies of the VHS era, but elegiac compositions put it in league with today’s progressive arthouse trends. - Inverse

      Bullet Train (2022) While Bullet Train’s basic premise is a recipe for fun and does succeed in entertaining with pleasing action choreography, it’s never as clever as it thinks it is nor as exhilarating as it ought to be. - Inverse

      Nope (2022) Brimming with tension but laced with gaiety so as to never feel hostile, Nope is an operatic and sweeping thriller that celebrates cinema and simultaneously condemns it as an industry built on obscured violence. - Inverse

      Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) But in a movie obsessed with Guns N Roses needle drops, Love and Thunder can’t find a singular, original rhythm of its own. - Inverse

      The Black Phone (2021) "There are scarier movies with scarier villains, sturdier logic, and arguably even better filmmaking. But the specific alchemy that makes up The Black Phone means you’d be hard-pressed to find anything else as effective." - Inverse

      Top Gun: Maverick (2022) Maverick is truly one for the ages in its deliverance of a distilled summer blockbuster whose thrills are strong enough to inspire highs totally indistinguishable from narcotics. Beware, and welcome to the Danger Zone. - Inverse

      Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) Multiverse of Madness is delightful, unhinged commercial art that is as complex as the multiverse itself. It’s thoughtful as it is stylish, as icy as it is effervescent. - Inverse
