7.5/10 Wrath of Man (2021) Edward Douglas Guy Ritchie changes gears as effortlessly as he did with Aladdin a few years back. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2021
The Water Man (2020) Edward Douglas A misguided venture that might have been totally forgettable if the characters didn't keep saying the title of the movie every five minutes. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2021

The Unthinkable (2018) Edward Douglas It's still quite annoying how long it takes to figure out what's going on -- for most people, that may already be far too frustrating to get through it. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2021
Here Today (2021) Edward Douglas It's so nice seeing [Crystal] going behind the camera for a movie that's obviously very personal but also highly relatable. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2021
Crisis (2021) Edward Douglas Goes as far and deep into the topic of opioid addiction as [Arbitrage] did with the stock market. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
About Endlessness (2019) Edward Douglas Andersson is the type of filmmaker who will continue along with a super-niche audience enjoying his quirky non-sequiturs that I just find super dull and pointless. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (2021) Edward Douglas Surely, Clancy's books must be better than this to have built such a fanbase over the years. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
The Outside Story (2020) Edward Douglas A wonderful and lovely indie, showing off Brian Tyree Henry's terrific range as a genuinely likable character. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
Limbo (2020) Edward Douglas The movie just seems to drive home the obvious, that life sucks for refugees, and that's about it. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
Separation (2021) Edward Douglas An awkward and disjointed mess that never really manages to define itself from dozens of similarly bad horror movies. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
5.5/10 Mortal Kombat (2021) Edward Douglas Kinda trite and boring, maybe something I'd appreciate more as a teenager but not so much as a grown adult. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2021
The Mitchells vs. the Machines (2021) Edward Douglas A fun cross between National Lampoon's Vacation with Will Smith's I, Robot, actually, and yet, it somehow does work EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2021

Posted Apr 22, 2021
Together Together (2021) Edward Douglas Beckwith's sense of humor combined with her dynamic duo stars makes Together Together the best comedy about pregnancy probably since Knocked Up. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2021
Jakob's Wife (2021) Edward Douglas A twist on the vampire movie, but more in vein of the weirdness from that 1988 Nicholas Cage movie, Vampire's Kiss. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2021
In The Earth (2021) Edward Douglas A movie that astounds, disorients and puzzles the viewer but in a way that makes them want to watch it again and try to figure out more with each viewing. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2021
Giants Being Lonely (2019) Edward Douglas Reminded me of early Richard Linklater, because it's so raw and honest in dealing with young people in a small town. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2021
Held (2020) Edward Douglas The whole thing just feels kind of ugly and unpleasant. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2021

Posted Apr 8, 2021

Posted Apr 8, 2021
The Unholy (2021) Edward Douglas Horror fans definitely want more than the usual these days, and The Unholy just seems like a lazy waste of time. EDIT
Posted Apr 1, 2021
Happily (2021) Edward Douglas Clever and original and rather intriguing how Grabinski puts all the various pieces together. EDIT
Posted Mar 17, 2021

Posted Mar 17, 2021

Posted Mar 7, 2021
Boss Level (2021) Edward Douglas I can only hope that Ryan Reynold's Free Guy is as good ... because this will be a tough act to follow. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2021

Posted Mar 7, 2021
Boogie (2021) Edward Douglas Hard to imagine this one connecting with audiences ... unless you're into college hoops, which I am not. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2021
Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) Edward Douglas I was always going to be a complete and total patsy for this movie since it combines a lot of things I like such as fantasy and Asian mythology. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2021
Chaos Walking (2021) Edward Douglas Tone-deaf to how hard it is to make the film's central premise work without eliciting guffaws even from the most dedicated or devout fans. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2021
8/10 The Little Things (2021) Edward Douglas The quality of performances [Hancock] gets from his three amazing actors is why I'm gonna give The Little Things an Ei8ght. EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2021
7/10 The Marksman (2021) Edward Douglas A decent enough dramatic thriller that feels a little by-the-books but gains enough humanity from Neeson's performance to make it a worthwhile watch. EDIT
Posted Jan 12, 2021
We Can Be Heroes (2020) Edward Douglas I totally would watch another movie with this superteam. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2020

Posted Dec 23, 2020

Posted Dec 23, 2020

Posted Dec 23, 2020
Boys vs. Girls (2019) Edward Douglas I really enjoyed the heck out of the tone and overall fun attitude that went into making this movie. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2020
Sylvie's Love (2020) Edward Douglas Part of the joy of appreciating what Ashe has done ... is to tell the story of these two characters over the course of a decade or so in a way that hasn't been done before. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2020

Posted Dec 23, 2020
7/10 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Edward Douglas Neither a terrible superhero movie nor necessarily a bad sequel ... [but] might not live up to many expectations. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2020
Fatale (2020) Edward Douglas Never quite delivers on the promising concept in the same way some might be hoping based on Taylor's previous work. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
Museum Town (2019) Edward Douglas Trainer has done a good job making it easier for people like me to understand why a trip to MASS MoCA in North Adams might be a worthy sojourn. EDIT
Posted Dec 16, 2020
Max Cloud (2020) Edward Douglas Pretty awful, a bad faux video game movie that should have had its plug pulled. EDIT
Posted Dec 16, 2020
Hunter Hunter (2020) Edward Douglas A genre film that erroneously plays down its genre potential until the very last 10 minutes ... that alone might annoy anyone watching it. EDIT
