2/5 Outside the Wire (2021) Drew Dietsch Outside the Wire has the overall feel of a lazy Sunday afternoon cable movie that your dad would have probably liked. EDIT

5/5 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Drew Dietsch Wonder Woman 1984 recalls the kind of warm but welcomingly hokey nature of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films when they were at their best. EDIT

3.5/5 Greenland (2020) Brent McKnight Big and booming, there's plenty of bombastic thrills and brink-of-annihilation action, with just enough human connection to keep viewers engaged. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2020
3.5/5 Mank (2020) Drew Dietsch Mank is sure to be one of the best head-scratchers of the year. EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2020
3/5 Fatman (2020) Drew Dietsch Fatman is like getting a decent pair of socks under the tree. You're thankful for them, but they aren't gonna be the gifts you remember. EDIT

2.5/5 LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special (2020) Drew Dietsch It's certainly a more pleasant and palatable experience than the original Star Wars Holiday Special, but it's not nearly as memorable. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2020
2/5 The Craft: Legacy (2020) Drew Dietsch [The Craft: Legacy has] a lack of effective comedy, an extremely mishandled villain, and a script that never feels as committed as the actresses that are on the screen. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2020
4.5/5 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Drew Dietsch ...there is no question that Borat 2 is the funniest film of the year in a year where laughs are few and far between. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2020
3/5 Love and Monsters (2020) Drew Dietsch If not for the legitimately delightful monster sequences, [Love and Monsters] would rate a lot lower. Instead, it just manages to get a passing grade. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2020
The Mist (2007) Drew Dietsch ...those who can stomach [The Mist] are likely to walk away with one of the most memorable monster movie experiences they have ever had. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2020
2.5/5 Hubie Halloween (2020) Drew Dietsch On its own, Hubie Halloween is a mediocre but mostly harmless little comedy. When grading on the Adam Sandler curve, it passes with flying colors. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2020
2/5 Ava (2020) Drew Dietsch By the end of the movie, Ava comes across less like a feature film and more like a weak pilot for a show that never got picked up to series. EDIT
Posted Sep 22, 2020
3/5 Cuties (2020) Drew Dietsch Cuties is the kind of movie that is actually a very impressive piece of filmmaking and storytelling, but its subject matter and depictions make it impossible to recommend. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2020
1/5 Mulan (2020) Drew Dietsch The Disney remakes have been far more miss than hit, and Mulan is one of their most massive misses. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2020
2/5 Tenet (2020) Drew Dietsch Devoid of soul and verve, Tenet is a winning science project but a failure as a piece of art. EDIT
Posted Sep 6, 2020
4/5 Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) Drew Dietsch Face the Music isn't going to save the world, but it will remind you that the world is worth saving. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2020
4.5/5 You Cannot Kill David Arquette (2020) Drew Dietsch Gripping, harrowing, and ultimately endearing, You Cannot Kill David Arquette is one of the brightest spots in an otherwise terribly dark year. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2020
Dark City (1998) Drew Dietsch Dark City is unabashed in its eccentricities and relishes the hypnotic, mystifying world it creates. EDIT
Posted Aug 12, 2020
3/5 Waiting for the Barbarians (2019) Drew Dietsch If the script and filmmaking [were] as riveting as the story's thematic weight, Waiting for the Barbarians could have been a real winner. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2020
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) Drew Dietsch Star Trek Into Darkness is a hopeless, vindictive, immoral blight on the name Star Trek. If that doesn't make it the worst Star Trek movie, I don't know what does. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2020
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) Drew Dietsch Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is much better than its reputation would lead you to believe. EDIT
Posted Jul 13, 2020
3/5 The Old Guard (2020) Drew Dietsch It's a bummer that The Old Guard isn't more than the sum of its parts, but the parts are well-crafted and enjoyable. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2020
The Prestige (2006) Drew Dietsch The Prestige's magic is real. You just have to be looking for it. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2020
Suicide Squad (2016) Drew Dietsch Suicide Squad [has] a lot more bright spots than its reputation leads you to believe. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2020
2.5/5 Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) Drew Dietsch If the movie didn't have Ferrell at the forefront, there's a chance it could be significantly better. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2020
True Lies (1994) Drew Dietsch True Lies is a good but not great movie. It has phenomenal set pieces and a good cast, but it's tough to totally argue for a movie with such bad things attached to it EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2020
Inception (2010) Drew Dietsch Ten years later, Inception continues to function as a thrilling sci-fi heist film, but its deeper secrets are what has cemented it as Christopher Nolan's masterpiece. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2020
Judge Dredd (1995) Drew Dietsch As a piece of pure production, [Judge Dredd] needs to be heralded as one of the best achievements of the '90s. Everything about the film's texture is a resounding success. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2020
The Iron Giant (1999) Drew Dietsch ...an incredible achievement in both narrative and animation. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2020
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) Drew Dietsch So many movies feel derivative or fall into easily recognizable categories. [Scott Pilgrim] is a movie that stands out from the crowd and continues to do so ten years later. EDIT
Posted Jun 1, 2020
Alien 3 (1992) Drew Dietsch [Alien 3] is a vastly different experience than any other movie in the series, and that alone makes it a unique project worth celebrating. EDIT
Posted May 26, 2020
Casper (1995) Drew Dietsch All these years later, Casper has managed to stick around thanks to it offering a pleasant blend of what audiences expect from a kids movie and some weightier thematic fare. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2020
Starship Troopers (1997) Drew Dietsch Time is the only real judge of art, and time has been more than kind to Starship Troopers. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2020
3/5 SCOOB! (2020) Drew Dietsch Scoob! is good as a kids flick and not bad as a Scooby-Doo vehicle. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2020
3/5 Capone (2020) Drew Dietsch Thanks to a confident take and assured execution from Josh Trank, this is a movie that will likely be remembered as one of the more unique entries in the gangster sub-genre. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2020
The Phantom (1996) Drew Dietsch If you're looking for a movie that captures the foundational spirit of comic book adventure, The Phantom is for you. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2020
Zathura (2005) Drew Dietsch Zathura is a kids movie that doesn't demean its target audience... This is a solid A-grade experience for young viewers and kids at heart. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2020
2/5 Planet of the Humans (2019) Drew Dietsch [Planet of the Humans] plays like a documentary your science teacher would've put on in high school so that they could catch up on grading some papers. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2020
Constantine (2005) Drew Dietsch Constantine deserves a cult following and should be remembered for all the things it did right instead of its perceived wrongs. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2020
Thor: The Dark World (2013) Drew Dietsch ...when it's all said and done, Thor: The Dark World deserves its reputation as the worst MCU movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2020
Punisher: War Zone (2008) Drew Dietsch Punisher: War Zone delivers a comic book movie with an emphasis on "comic." A hard-R celebration of overblown movie violence. A bold, brash, and bonkers splatterfest. EDIT
Posted Mar 31, 2020
1.5/5 Bloodshot (2020) Drew Dietsch Full of tired clichés, cardboard characters, and a lack of filmmaking panache, Bloodshot never delivers anything that makes it stand out from the crowd. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2020
2/5 The Hunt (2020) Drew Dietsch The Hunt has very little to recommend outside of a few good gore gags and Betty Gilpin delivering the goods. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2020
4/5 Cloud Atlas (2012) Joshua Tyler It doesn't matter if Cloud Atlas ends up being more than the sum of its parts when the parts are this good. EDIT
Posted Oct 27, 2012
4.5/5 Looper (2012) Joshua Tyler One of the best movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2012
3.5/5 Dredd (2012) Joshua Tyler Karl Urban is the Judge Dredd you've been waiting for. EDIT
Posted Sep 21, 2012
2/5 Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) Joshua Tyler Most franchises which make it to 5 movies start to run out of ideas by then, but if Retribution has one glaring problem it's that it has far too many of them. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2012
3.5/5 Total Recall (2012) Joshua Tyler A lot of fun in its own way; a big, flashy summer movie with loads of incredibly cool high-tech ideas standing in for good character-driven ones. EDIT
Posted Aug 3, 2012
1.5/5 The Watch (2012) Joshua Tyler Seeing Richard Ayoade in this film is like watching someone confronted by a T-Rex and hoping that if he holds really still it won't eat him. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2012
4/5 Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) Joshua Tyler Funny, haunting and thought-provoking. EDIT
