Rating Title/Year Author
4/5 Color Out of Space (2019) Rob Vaux It does not go well for the alpacas. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2020
3.5/5 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Rob Vaux "I loved it. It was much better than Cats. I'm going to see it again and again." EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2019
4.5/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Rob Vaux Even if you just want a solid spook story, it's still more than worthy of its lofty pedigree. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2019
3.5/5 Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Rob Vaux It can't match the first two entries in the series, but judging it on those terms denies the very real pleasures it works hard to offer. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
2/5 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Rob Vaux The role is Jolie's and if that's all you need, she delivers when she can. But be ready for a long wait between those moments, devoid of nothing but pretty pictures that melt at the slightest touch. EDIT
Posted Oct 17, 2019
3/5 Gemini Man (2019) Rob Vaux The more you strip down the experience, the more enjoyable it all becomes. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
4.5/5 Joker (2019) Rob Vaux We get the monsters we deserve. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
3/5 It: Chapter Two (2019) Rob Vaux The first chapter stands as one of the best horror movies of the last few years. This one is just... adequate. EDIT
Posted Sep 6, 2019
3.5/5 Ready or Not (2019) Rob Vaux Ready or Not has nothing more than a little dark fun on its mind, but it knows the evil in men's hearts and has no interest in letting anyone off the hook for that. EDIT
Posted Aug 23, 2019
3/5 Angel Has Fallen (2019) Daniel M. Kimmel ...the point of the series is that it provides visceral and violent action, delivering plenty of jolts mixed in with a dash of humor. EDIT
Posted Aug 23, 2019
3/5 The Lion King (2019) Rob Vaux [It] treads far too close to a predecessor that blazed the trail from which it refuses to stray. That is neither praise nor condemnation, but a simple statement of fact. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
4.5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Rob Vaux There's no better character to put the bow on top of this extraordinary chapter in Marvel's story. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
2.5/5 Men in Black: International (2019) Rob Vaux Strictly filler: a charming pair of stars soft-shoeing their way through wafer-thin material held up by vaguely interesting special effects. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
1/5 Dark Phoenix (2019) Rob Vaux What a tired, deflated end it turns out to be. EDIT
Posted Jun 7, 2019
2/5 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Rob Vaux This King falls distressingly short of the crown. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
3.5/5 Aladdin (2019) Rob Vaux It doesn't suck. REPEAT: IT DOESN'T SUCK! EDIT
Posted May 23, 2019
4.5/5 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Rob Vaux You'll never see a victory lap look quite as awesome as this one. EDIT
Posted Apr 27, 2019
1.5/5 Shazam! (2019) Rob Vaux Whatever magic this film holds just passed me by. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2019
2/5 Pet Sematary (2019) Rob Vaux Sometimes, the first one is better. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2019
4.5/5 Us (2019) Rob Vaux Yeah... Jordan Peele's good at this. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2019
4/5 Captain Marvel (2019) Rob Vaux They cast Brie Larson and let the rest take care of itself. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2019
4/5 The Death of Superman / Reign of the Supermen Double Feature (2019) Rob Vaux It's a solid piece of storytelling, inspired by a beloved chapter in the Man of Steel's comics history, and it captures the right mood for the story in a tight little package. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2019
3/5 Aquaman (2018) Rob Vaux Cheesy and ridiculous, but also a surprising amount of fun. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2019
5/5 Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Rob Vaux It's perhaps most impressive for its apparent effortlessness: laboring mightily to float on air and revealing none of its Herculean efforts in the meantime. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2019
2/5 Mortal Engines (2018) Rob Vaux There's something supremely cool going on here, and at times you can catch sight of it. But not often enough to make up for what it squanders. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2019
3.5/5 Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Rob Vaux An expansion on the character that might not have been necessary, but certainly feels worthwhile. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
3.5/5 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Rob Vaux The Crimes of Grindelwald is far from a perfect adventure, but its pleasures are no less potent than those of its fellows. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2018
2/5 Dr. Seuss' The Grinch (2018) Rob Vaux The bauble is shiny, but hollow inside. EDIT
Posted Nov 10, 2018
4/5 Halloween (2018) Rob Vaux The results justify the hype... provided you never presume to compare it to the original. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2018
2/5 The Predator (2018) Rob Vaux Somewhere along the line, its copious shortcomings end up overwhelming its better elements. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2018
2/5 The Happytime Murders (2018) Rob Vaux There's only so many times a puppet can say "fuck" or engage in a lewd act before the novelty wears off. EDIT
Posted Aug 23, 2018
0/5 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Rob Vaux The film commits the rookie horror movie mistake of equating suffering with fear. We the audience pay the price. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2018
4/5 Mayhem (2017) Rob Vaux A strong script, a good sense of timing, and the kind of anarchic glee than more prestige projects can't manage. EDIT
Posted Dec 26, 2017
2/5 Downsizing (2017) Daniel M. Kimmel ...a science-fiction comedy that goes off in so many directions that it ends up being pointless. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2017
4/5 Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Rob Vaux Good news everyone! That Hulk dick joke we ordered has arrived! EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2017
3/5 Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Rob Vaux Having scored an unexpected success with the sheer audacity of the first film, director Matthew Vaughn delivers more of the same, with diminished (if still interesting) results. EDIT
Posted Sep 22, 2017
4/5 The Limehouse Golem (2016) Rob Vaux If you accept that it won't break any new boundaries, the confidence with which it goes about its task is impressive. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2017
4/5 It (2017) Rob Vaux The film works more as a bittersweet coming-of-age story than the terrors for which we presumably paid to see. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2017
3/5 Batman and Harley Quinn (2017) Rob Vaux You can see the tone they're going for and when it hits, it's a riot. But it misses more than it should, and with risqué material, it becomes too crude for comfort. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2017
5/5 War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Rob Vaux The most powerful of an already strong trilogy, with a message that has never felt more timely and a gorgeous curtain call for a character who has quietly climbed into the realm of greatness. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2017
3/5 Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Rob Vaux The fifth-best superhero film so far this year... is still pretty darn good. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2017
3/5 Despicable Me 3 (2017) Rob Vaux The Despicable Me franchise always thrived on lowered expectations, and they serve Gru and his brood well enough here to make this last outing a pleasant one. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2017
3.5/5 Cars 3 (2017) Rob Vaux While you still need to get around those uncomfortable questions like "where do the car children come from?" and "how do they handle tools without thumbs?" this go 'round at least ensures a few tangible rewards if you do. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2017
2/5 The Mummy (2017) Rob Vaux The lurching undead may be necessary for this property, but the movie itself resembles them in all the wrong ways. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2017
5/5 Wonder Woman (2017) Rob Vaux Wonder Woman gives this long-ignored heroine the coming-out party she truly deserves. EDIT
Posted Jun 2, 2017
3/5 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Rob Vaux It's not the best movie of the summer, but I guarantee we're going to see worse. EDIT
Posted May 26, 2017
2.5/5 Alien: Covenant (2017) Rob Vaux It never offends, but with the words "Ridley Scott" and "Alien movie" in close proximity, you expect a lot better. EDIT
Posted May 19, 2017
3/5 Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016) Rob Vaux The movie does what the previous five have done with no apologies and no regrets. EDIT
Posted May 16, 2017
3/5 Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) Rob Vaux Too trashy to be good, but as trash it's not too bad. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2017
4.5/5 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Rob Vaux This Guardians finally hits the gloriously ridiculous extremes that the first adventure never quite reached EDIT
