Rating Title/Year Author
A- Runner (2019) Chris Stuckmann Probably my favorite thriller that I've seen in recent memory. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2020
B- Freaky (2020) Chris Stuckmann Pretty entertaining, and mostly because of Vince Vaughn. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2020
D Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) Chris Stuckmann This was the beginning of the end for the Halloween franchise. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2020
D The Craft: Legacy (2020) Chris Stuckmann A lot of this film just doesn't work, and a lot of that has to do with the characterizations... There is virtually no attempt to give character to the three [other] girls. EDIT

Butterfly Kisses (2018) Chris Stuckmann It's a fascinating look at how a filmmaker can become so obsessed with something, it destroys his life. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2020
Hellbound (1993) Chris Stuckmann Hellbound is so bad, but man it's entertaining! EDIT
Posted Oct 27, 2020
A- Jennifer's Body (2009) Chris Stuckmann What I love about this movie is, surprisingly, that Megan Fox is excellent. EDIT
Posted Oct 27, 2020
B+ Drag Me to Hell (2009) Chris Stuckmann It's very well-directed and a total f---ing blast! EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2020
B- The Craft (1996) Chris Stuckmann I really enjoy the characters. Every single one of them is very unique and the film does an excellent job at fleshing out each girl. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2020
A+ The Others (2001) Chris Stuckmann The performances, writing, production design, cinematography, music, directing -- it's all top-notch. Everything about this movie really works. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2020
B+ Blade (1998) Chris Stuckmann Not only is this an important movie for comic book films in general -- it's just a f---ing blast! EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2020
B- I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) Chris Stuckmann A cheesy and sometimes melodramatic slasher film that is certainly not one of the best, but... It's directed better than a lot of the slasher films in recent years. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2020
A- The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005) Chris Stuckmann One of very the few PG-13 horrors that actually does scare me, because it feels realistic, it feels adult, and it feels like there is real weight and dramatic implications. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2020
A+ I Saw the Devil (2010) Chris Stuckmann It's anchored by two fantastic performances. Seeing these two men go head-to-head psychologically and physically is enthralling. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2020
B+ The Mothman Prophecies (2002) Chris Stuckmann One of the creepiest movies ever made. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2020
A- The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) Chris Stuckmann This movie is nothing but an exercise in tension. Grotesque, looming, filthy tension -- and on that count, the film works extremely well. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2020
B Wolf (1994) Chris Stuckmann It's an extremely mature werewolf movie... The film is actually kind of funny. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2020
B+ Poltergeist (1982) Chris Stuckmann One of the most fun haunted house movies ever made. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2020
C+ Vampires vs. The Bronx (2019) Chris Stuckmann I do recommend checking it out, especially if you're in a Halloween mood. It's a fun movie, but it could have been a lot better. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2020
C- Predators (2010) Chris Stuckmann This movie doesn't really know how to be its own film. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2020
B Nomadland (2020) Chris Stuckmann This movie is worth seeing specifically for Frances McDormand's performance, the beautiful cinematography, and also for the real-life nomads that the film includes. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2020
A- One Night in Miami (2020) Chris Stuckmann One Night in Miami is Regina King's directorial debut and, after seeing this film, I want to see her do just about anything. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2020
A- Pieces of a Woman (2021) Chris Stuckmann This film was terrific. It has what I think might be Shia LaBeouf's best performance to date. Vanessa Kirby is also incredible. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2020
C- Mulan (2020) Chris Stuckmann I admire Disney for trying to do something different -- they didn't just make a shot-for-shot remake of the original movie -- but all of the choices they made were inferior to the original film. EDIT
Posted Sep 5, 2020
B Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) Chris Stuckmann It's such an optimistic movie, it's almost sugary. It's so sweet, likable, and not pretentious in the least. It's exactly what a Bill and Ted movie in 2020 should be. EDIT
Posted Aug 31, 2020
B+ Tenet (2020) Chris Stuckmann It's another intriguing and fascinating film from one of our most daring filmmakers working within the mainstream system. EDIT
Posted Aug 28, 2020
C+ The New Mutants (2020) Chris Stuckmann It feels like the movie doesn't have anything else up its sleeve. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2020
B- Unhinged (2020) Chris Stuckmann A refreshingly mind-numbing experience. EDIT
Posted Aug 18, 2020
C Project Power (2020) Chris Stuckmann Unfortunately, despite [a] great idea, this film takes that idea and puts it in the most generic plot ever. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2020
B Host (2020) Chris Stuckmann The characters, performances, and the skillful way [director] Rob Savage sets up his scares really save this movie. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2020
C- The Rental (2020) Chris Stuckmann A very generic slasher with nothing to say that hasn't already been said in movies like 13 Cameras. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2020
A+ Train to Busan (2016) Chris Stuckmann It could not be done better. They pulled no punches with this movie. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2020
C+ The Old Guard (2020) Chris Stuckmann It felt like there were all these great pieces here, but they didn't really do anything terribly interesting with them. They threw them in a lab and [added] a whole bunch of John Wick[-esque] scenes in hallways. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2020
C Greyhound (2020) Chris Stuckmann Basically nothing about this movie really connects, the characterization being one of the weakest elements. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2020
B+ Relic (2020) Chris Stuckmann It's really based around the characters. You feel more afraid in horror if you care about the people you're watching, because you start to feel fear for them, and in this film I did care about these characters. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2020
D You Should Have Left (2020) Chris Stuckmann If you e-mailed this script to an executive or an agent, they wouldn't even respond to you. They would just throw it in a pile. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2020
B Honey Boy (2019) Chris Stuckmann The movie feels very raw. LaBeouf's voice is very unfiltered through this movie... You can tell that he's working through things as he writes the movie. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
A- Da 5 Bloods (2020) Chris Stuckmann As usual, Spike Lee has his finger on the pulse of America. This movie feels like it was made last week. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
Shirley (2020) Chris Stuckmann It's the performances that save this movie for me. It has a very unique style of cinematography that sometimes grated on my nerves, but I think that was the intended outcome. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
C- Becky (2020) Chris Stuckmann No one is bad in the film, but it just feels really haphazard. It seemed like characters were positioned throughout the movie by the writers. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
C- The Lovebirds (2020) Chris Stuckmann It doesn't really feel like it has a script. It feels like it has bullet points and these actors are going from bullet point to bullet point, improving the whole time. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
B- Guns Akimbo (2019) Chris Stuckmann Daniel Radcliffe is very good in this movie, but the film starts to lose steam once you realize that it doesn't really have much else to offer beyond these high-energy action sequences. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
F Artemis Fowl (2020) Chris Stuckmann For whatever reason it just feels like a hodgepodge of scenes strung together to make a feature length runtime. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2020
C Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Chris Stuckmann There's a lot of money on the screen, Angelina Jolie is once again really good in the film, the musical score is great, and some of the action sequences are cool. But the story this time around is even less investing than last time. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2020
A- The Vast of Night (2019) Chris Stuckmann Captures the live-wire immediacy of a few people in a small town stumbling across something monumental. EDIT
Posted Jun 1, 2020
Speak (2004) Chris Stuckmann A strikingly relevant and underseen slice-of-life drama with an award-worthy turn from Kristen Stewart. EDIT
Posted May 25, 2020
D SCOOB! (2020) Chris Stuckmann There's nothing new or interesting about this movie. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2020
C- Capone (2020) Chris Stuckmann None of it really worked for me. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2020
D Replicas (2018) Chris Stuckmann Along with the messy script is some absolutely horrendous CGI. EDIT
Posted May 11, 2020
C- Elektra (2005) Chris Stuckmann The real issue I have with this movie is how uneventful so much of it feels. EDIT
