4/10 Scoob! (2020) Matt Singer A ham-fisted attempt to capture the zeitgeist by shoving most of the classic characters to the side and adding a bunch of superheroes into the mix. EDIT

6/10 Spaceship Earth (2020) Matt Singer The best sequences replicate the biosphere's claustrophobic atmosphere for an audience at home that can relate to that feeling right now. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2020
5/10 Extraction (2020) Matt Singer The movie comes alive for one truly impressive action scene; it's a bit of a slog until that point. EDIT

Posted Feb 21, 2020
5/10 Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Matt Singer Given where this movie started, it's kind a miracle it's as watchable as it is. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2020
6/10 Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Matt Singer Novelty goes a long way in this world, and Birds of Prey has a fair amount. EDIT

1/10 Dolittle (2020) Matt Singer Robert Downey Jr. goes so big he makes Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow look like an introvert. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020

Posted Dec 18, 2019
5/10 6 Underground (2019) Matt Singer Excessive, wanton, gorgeous, bizarre. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2019
Fyre (2019) Matt Singer I sat watching Fyre in a state of amused disbelief (while, yes, occasionally taking the Lord's name in vain). There's not too many places to see this much madness, ego, greed, and full-on stupidity on display at the same time. EDIT

8/10 High Flying Bird (2019) Matt Singer Whether High Flying Bird is perfect for streaming or doomed to obscurity because of it, I'm delighted I got to watch it and spend 90 minutes in the company of some very intelligent people. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019

Posted Nov 14, 2019
5/10 Charlie's Angels (2019) Matt Singer There's only so much Kristen Stewart can do in a movie as uneven as this one. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2019
5/10 Lady and the Tramp (2019) Matt Singer Harmless, and pointless. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2019
7/10 Doctor Sleep (2019) Matt Singer Doctor Sleep doesn't simply rehash its source material, and instead uses its characters, setting, and themes in smart and novel ways. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
7/10 Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Matt Singer Generating dread out of an apocalypse that's 20 years behind schedule is no easy feat, but Miller, Cameron, and their writers pull it off. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2019
7/10 The Lighthouse (2019) Matt Singer Has the bearing an old silent film based on a sea shanty told by sailors to pass the time on a cold, dreary night. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
7/10 Gemini Man (2019) Matt Singer Who wouldn't want to punch their younger self in the face? EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
3/10 Joker (2019) Matt Singer Todd Phillips clearly understands the plots of the Scorsese movies he's copied, but not their souls. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
5/10 Memory: The Origins of Alien (2019) Matt Singer Too superficial a treatment of the chestburster sequence, and also too lengthy an exploration of it to give the other elements of the movie their due. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2019
8/10 The Irishman (2019) Matt Singer This massive 209-minute film feels like a career summation for Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
8/10 Ad Astra (2019) Matt Singer For 124 minutes, Ad Astra is The Brad Pitt Show. For 124 minutes, it's a darn good show. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2019
5/10 It: Chapter Two (2019) Matt Singer The really scary thing is the runtime. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
8/10 Good Boys (2019) Matt Singer As long as kids watch movies at sleepover parties, Good Boys will endure. EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2019

Posted Aug 8, 2019
9/10 7 Days in Hell (2015) Matt Singer Jake Syzmanski and writer Murray Miller were able to produce a mockumentary that giddily pulses with a sense of absolute freedom. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
6/10 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Matt Singer The action sequences are suitably spectacular, but none top the lunacy of the skydiving cars in Furious 7. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
9/10 Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Matt Singer Despite the darkness lingering around its edges, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is also Tarantino's sweetest movie since Jackie Brown. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2019
4/10 The Lion King (2019) Matt Singer Like a bad Xerox of the original. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
8/10 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Matt Singer A lovely capper on the 23-course meal that has been the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
6/10 Midsommar (2019) Matt Singer An outstanding depiction of a broken relationship that turns into a so-so gorefest. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2019
7/10 Toy Story 4 (2019) Matt Singer Toy Story 4 is the weakest movie in the series. But it's also the riskiest and the most pleasantly unpredictable. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019

Posted Jun 12, 2019
4/10 Dark Phoenix (2019) Matt Singer The X-Men series has finally burned out. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/10 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Matt Singer The characters behave so irrationally that Godzilla and his simple, clear motivations feel downright human in comparison. EDIT
Posted May 28, 2019
8/10 Brightburn (2019) Matt Singer Superman is mighty scary as a slasher villain. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
4/10 Aladdin (2019) Matt Singer A remake that can't hold a lamp to the original. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
3/10 Tolkien (2019) Matt Singer When people getting hot for ancient languages is the exciting part of your movie, you've got a problem. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2019
5/10 Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Matt Singer A bit too childish for adults, and a bit too convoluted for kids EDIT
Posted May 2, 2019
8/10 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Matt Singer A gargantuan love letter to Marvel's equally enormous mythology. EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2019

Posted Apr 18, 2019
4/10 Hellboy (2019) Matt Singer They had a helluva hard time rebooting this series. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2019

Posted Mar 26, 2019
8/10 Shazam! (2019) Matt Singer Fans occasionally refer to Shazam as "The Big Red Cheese" and this movie is very faithful to the spirit of that nickname. EDIT
