      Sahara (2005) Sean Collier It's not a terrible film. It's not particularly good, either, but it's certainly no disaster.

      Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) Sean Collier Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was, if not conventionally good, very, very interesting.

      Enchanted (2007) Sean Collier It's a feast of references and gentle self-deprecation for Disney fans, a pleasant if uninventive romcom and an altogether nice time at the movies.

      With Honors (1994) Sean Collier While the film's schmaltz and occasional moments of aspirational Gen-X cool earned it a fond place in the memories of some ... With Honors is largely hackneyed.

      Footloose (1984) Sean Collier While Footloose is fun, it's not very good. Its story is a dud

      The Craft (1996) Sean Collier The Craft ... has a legacy that outweighs both its limited success and few flaws.

      Army Of The Dead (2021) Sean Collier The lowliest one-legged ghoul in this bloodbath possesses more grace than the script.

      The Woman in the Window (2021) Sean Collier The cast ... lends Woman in the Window the imprimatur of legitimacy, but the illusion can't hold.

      Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021) Sean Collier Fortunately, a hackneyed script can't ruin what is ultimately good, gross horror fun.

      6/10
      Monster (2018) Sean Collier There's an easy path to drama in a story such as this, and it's followed, thoughtfully.

      6/10
      Wrath of Man (2021) Sean Collier You'll feel like the quest for vengeance is yours, watching your avatar work through it; at the very least, you'll find it easy to turn your mind off and follow along.
      Posted May 11, 2021
      4/10
      Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (2021) Sean Collier [It has a] plot that does not so much move as lurch, propelled thoughtlessly from one deus ex machina to the next.

      Things Heard & Seen (2021) Sean Collier Fortunately, a creepy, cold quality seeps through the film, freezing out its flaws.

      7/10
      Freaky (2020) Sean Collier It's fun, funny and generally winning.

      6/10
      Mortal Kombat (2021) Sean Collier The real heroes here are the visual effects department, who turn every fight into a vivid, fantastical bloodbath.
      Posted Apr 23, 2021
      7/10
      Stowaway (2021) Sean Collier The cast is good and the suspense is real, even if the circumstances are tortured.

      7/10
      The Courier (2020) Sean Collier Whether or not you end up caring about Wynne and Penkovsky ... the can-they-pull-this-off factor is more than enough to keep you engaged.
      Posted Apr 21, 2021
      9/10
      In The Earth (2021) Sean Collier It's thoughtful and alarmingly relevant. At the heart of it, though, In the Earth is simply terrifying.
      Posted Apr 21, 2021
      7/10
      Voyagers (2021) Sean Collier Somewhat grim outlook aside, though, Voyagers is a gripping, tight thriller.
      Posted Apr 11, 2021
      3/10
      Thunder Force (2021) Sean Collier Thunder Force is billed as a superhero comedy, but plenty of straight superhero movies are far funnier.

      5/10
      Concrete Cowboy (2020) Sean Collier The cast is repeatedly abandoned ... by the go-nowhere script.
      Posted Apr 02, 2021
      6/10
      Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Sean Collier This movie doesn't need decent dialogue or sound logic; it needs two big monsters punching each other. And they do!
      Posted Apr 02, 2021
      8/10
      Coming to America (1988) Sean Collier It is charmingly old-school in plenty of regards - while remaining quotable.

      6/10
      Nobody (2021) Sean Collier There are good reasons to watch Nobody. Whatever you do, however, don't think about it.

      7/10
      The Princess and the Frog (2009) Sean Collier The Princess and the Frog is indeed good-not-great, as its considerable merits ... are weighed against a circuitous, unsatisfying plot.

      7/10
      Slaxx (2020) Sean Collier It doesn't have to be rocket science. Promise me a movie with killer jeans, and then have the jeans kill some people. Set an achievable goal and reach it.

      6/10
      Cherry (2021) Sean Collier It's up to the Russo brothers, then, who certainly make the narrative dance as much as they are able.

      1/10
      Yes Day (2021) Sean Collier Yes Day is an utterly sanitized version of a family movie ... designed ... to avoid any moment of upsetting, challenging or otherwise interesting content.

      Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) Sean Collier Is it worth years of hype and four hours of your time? I don't know. Is anything?
      Posted Mar 18, 2021
      5/10
      Coming 2 America (2021) Sean Collier It doesn't take long for Coming 2 America, the long-belated sequel to the similarly titled 1988 original, to run out of new ideas.

      Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) Sean Collier The movie crosses the finish line on the strength of its cast, style and music; you won't have a bad time.
      Posted Mar 07, 2021
      5/10
      Meet the Fockers (2004) Sean Collier It's an unimaginative comedy, with occasionally effective scenes interspersed with flat retreads of the original's jokes.

      Blithe Spirit (2020) Sean Collier There's a lot in the pot ... including some good flavors. This is not, however, a dish that fully comes together.
      Posted Feb 26, 2021
      4/10
      The United States vs. Billie Holiday (2021) Sean Collier It's hard to define why a well-proportioned movie crumbles; suffice to say that this one never fully gets to its feet in the first place.
      Posted Feb 26, 2021
      10/10
      Minari (2020) Sean Collier Minari makes its case - for hope, for endurance, for a much more genuine version of the American dream - quietly and plainly.
      Posted Feb 22, 2021
      3/10
      Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) Sean Collier Bridesmaids ... was everything Barb and Star is not.
      Posted Feb 15, 2021
      6/10
      Land (2021) Sean Collier Land is beautiful and atmospheric. Its chief character, however, isn't credible.
      Posted Feb 15, 2021
      8/10
      Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) Sean Collier It's a portrait of Hampton by way of O'Neal's story ... a screenwriting choice that makes for a more compelling film than a straight Hampton biopic might.
      Posted Feb 15, 2021
      6/10
      Pretty in Pink (1986) Sean Collier The fond memories of Pretty in Pink were genuinely earned.
      Posted Feb 08, 2021

      A Nightmare Wakes (2020) Sean Collier Mary Shelley had a complicated and often tumultuous life; A Nightmare Wakes echoes it.

      Malcolm & Marie (2021) Sean Collier The craft of the film is a bonus, however, as this project hangs on its stars - and they're perfect.
      Posted Feb 05, 2021
      6/10
      The Little Things (2021) Sean Collier The ending may leave some audiences lukewarm, but it's different enough to elevate The Little Things above mediocrity.

      The Dig (2021) Sean Collier A moving and lovely period drama ... There's some temporal magic here.

      Taken (2008) Sean Collier He shows up, he punches, he succeeds, he goes home. It works.

      Our Friend (2019) Sean Collier Here's a movie that will allow you to have a nice, cathartic cry at an indeterminate point in the future when you have fewer practical matters to weep about.
      Posted Jan 25, 2021
      5/10
      The White Tiger (2021) Sean Collier There's nothing wrong with The White Tiger, it just didn't do much for me. I can't imagine it will enthrall you, either.
      Posted Jan 25, 2021
      9/10
      One Night in Miami (2020) Sean Collier King easily overcomes [the script's theatrical roots], teasing movement and grace out of what could easily have been a static story.
