Rating Title/Year Author
Captive State (2019) Tim Brennan The film never commits to what it wants to be, and instead of confidently moving in a single direction, it tries to move in five directions at the same time. EDIT

Captain Marvel (2019) Tim Brennan I don't think that Captain Marvel is going to strike the culture like a metaphorical Mjolnir. It doesn't have to since it's a well-made standalone adventure, as well as a comfortable piece in the tapestry of the MCU. EDIT

Greta (2018) Tim Brennan Greta is nonsense, but it's fairly entertaining nonsense. EDIT

Roma (2018) Tim Brennan Roma essentially has no plot, but it doesn't need one. Cuarón has reached back into his memories and made a finely crafted tribute. EDIT

Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Tim Brennan We've got a good time at the movies here, but a screenplay that was ruthlessly trimmed could have made it great. EDIT

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Tim Brennan I can live with The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part occupying a slightly lesser level than its predecessor. I'm pleased we've got a sequel that's still motivated to do more than simply coast on the goodwill gained from the original. EDIT

Serenity (2019) Tim Brennan During the last half hour, the movie doesn't just go off the rails; it hits a mountain, explodes, and the fiery wreckage strikes a bus full of nuns and orphans, also causing them to explode. EDIT

Destroyer (2018) Tim Brennan Even if you strip away the strong performance and the time-jumping script, you still have a better-than-average cop thriller. EDIT

Glass (2019) Tim Brennan Glass is almost an anti-blockbuster, and I admire its commitment to not caring what you think of it...I apologize for being so unhelpful, but I genuinely don't know if Glass is a good film or not. EDIT

If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Tim Brennan Jenkins has proved himself a filmmaker of considerable skill and power. He's less interested in narrative, but more about creating a series of vignettes and an overall mood. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2019
Vice (2018) Tim Brennan Vice tells the story of Dick Cheney's political career with seething anger and sharp intelligence, and one of the parties responsible for his rise is us. EDIT

Aquaman (2018) Tim Brennan We have another movie about a biracial hero coming to terms with his place in the world, a superhero film that enthusiastically embraces its more ludicrous tropes, and a sprawling epic that makes the movies of the DCEU worth watching again. EDIT

The Mule (2018) Tim Brennan Eastwood has made exactly the kind of movie he wants, and it's a confirmed character piece. It travels at a relaxed pace through America's highways. EDIT

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Tim Brennan Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is amazing. Spectacular. Perhaps even the ultimate iteration of the beloved character. This is easily the best animated film of the year, and one of the best films of the year period. EDIT

Green Book (2018) Tim Brennan Peter Farrelly has made a film that feels like a perfectly sanded piece of wood...This isn't a bad movie. It's a nice movie, but I'm struggling with whether or not it's a good movie. EDIT

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Tim Brennan Fear not, because as much fun as Wreck-It Ralph is, there's no doubt that Ralph Breaks the Internet is better - smarter, funnier, and with a message that resonates for kids and adults alike. EDIT
Posted Nov 25, 2018
Widows (2018) Tim Brennan Widows is...a fusion of low and high film that operates with assured craftsmanship and is very much itself. This is one of the best films of the year. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2018
Overlord (2018) Tim Brennan There's a fun and pulpy sensibility on display here, and we're given a movie that takes itself seriously - but not too seriously. It's better than it has any right to be. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2018
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Tim Brennan With Bohemian Rhapsody, what we have here is a dumb and obvious film that features a number of strong performances and Queen's astounding music. It's a highly entertaining bad movie that often works in spite of itself. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2018
Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Tim Brennan A very good film that doesn't deserve to be forgotten. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2018
A Star Is Born (2018) Tim Brennan It's perfectly comfortable cranking up its emotions and firing them directly into your face. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2018
Venom (2018) Tim Brennan With Venom, there's no love because there's no character to love. EDIT
