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

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

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

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

4/5 Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) Joshua Tyler Funny, haunting and thought-provoking. EDIT
Posted Jun 22, 2012
4/5 Prometheus (2012) Joshua Tyler The fact that the movie was able to recycle the plot of Star Trek V will likely never get the level of praise it deserves. EDIT
Posted Jun 1, 2012
4/5 Men in Black 3 (2012) Joshua Tyler Men in Black III is far better than we had any right to expect. EDIT
Posted May 25, 2012
2.5/5 Battleship (2012) Joshua Tyler It's everything that's wrong with modern science fiction and also a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2012

Posted Apr 13, 2012

3.5/5 John Carter (2012) Joshua Tyler Go for the spectacle, go for the fun, just don't expect anything as significant as the impact made by Burroughs' books. EDIT
Posted Mar 9, 2012
The Darkest Hour (2011) Joshua Tyler Writer Jon Spaihts' script goes about this in the right way, by telling a story involving a vicious alien attack that's completely unique in its execution. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2011
In Time (2011) Joshua Tyler In Time starts out with one of the best sci-fi premises in recent memory, and then does nothing with it. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2011
Attack the Block (2011) Joshua Tyler The best science fiction movie of 2012. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2011
2.5/5 The Thing (2011) Joshua Tyler If ever anyone needed evidence that Carpenter's 1982 movie is the definitive take on this story, the only one we'll ever need, this provides it. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2011
3/5 Predators (2010) Joshua Tyler Predators sets out to pay homage to the original movie by echoing it, but instead it mostly ends up duplicating it. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2010
3/5 Terminator Salvation (2009) Joshua Tyler It's the script. It's the entire premise on which the film is built that's at fault and there's really nothing the movie's one-named director McG could have done to fix that. EDIT
Posted May 26, 2009
Knowing (2009) Joshua Tyler It's the movie Keanu Reeves' Day the Earth Stood Still remake wished it could have been. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2009
4/5 WALL-E (2008) Joshua Tyler For adults there aren't a lot of surprises, but that doesn't mean you won't revel in the Pixar-perfect execution of another story well told. EDIT
