Rating Title/Year Author
3.5/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Aaron Leggo Alita remains an eye-popping extravaganza that reaches for an apex of technical perfection so honestly and impressively that it's almost overwhelming. EDIT

3/5 The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018) Aaron Leggo A raucous, manic send-up of Hollywood excess and the power of a dream, making it double as a commentary on Gilliam's long-standing desire to see the project through. EDIT

3/5 Captain Marvel (2019) Aaron Leggo [Larson's] femininity feels fresh and uncompromising and her presence is intriguingly both grounded and otherworldly. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2019
3/5 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Aaron Leggo Endgame is not exactly an inspired finish, but it's certainly true to Marvel form, an extensive extravaganza armed with an intuitive grasp of its audience's needs and desires. EDIT

2.5/5 Dead Ant (2017) Aaron Leggo An often insipid, mostly meandering horror/comedy hybrid that's too dumb to really recommend, but oddly endearing enough in the end to render it somewhat dopily palatable. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2019
2/5 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Aaron Leggo A patronizing response to every question about Queen music that can be answered by either playing a Queen song or showing a clip of a band member discussing a Queen song. EDIT

3.5/5 Roma (2018) Aaron Leggo If it wasn't clear before, then Roma is a gorgeous guarantee that achieving technical perfection is Alfonso Cuarón's one true goal. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
2.5/5 First Man (2018) Aaron Leggo As Chazelle peels back the layers of Neil's personality to expose his anguished headspace, the director simply has very little insight to share. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2018
3/5 A Star Is Born (2018) Aaron Leggo Gaga and Cooper really click with the emotional elements of the material and bring a lot of energy to the very simple and familiar story. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2018
2.5/5 Adrift (2018) Aaron Leggo The resiliency of the human spirit is pummeled by a squall of sentimentality in Baltasar Kormákur's based-on-a-true-story survival drama. EDIT

4/5 Black Panther (2018) Aaron Leggo There are a lot of corporate interests that need be served here and yet Coogler has made a blockbuster that feels deeply personal and pertinent to the times we live in. EDIT

1/5 Ready Player One (2018) Aaron Leggo The silver screen has rarely felt so lacking in allure, which is either the complete opposite of the point that Spielberg is trying to make or the absolute epitome of it. EDIT

3/5 Tomb Raider (2018) Aaron Leggo As far as Hollywood [movies] go, this one earns bonus points for being so eager to celebrate a woman without sexualizing her or adorning her with a love interest accessory. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
5/5 Tully (2018) Aaron Leggo What appears to begin as a darkly comical look at the challenges of parenthood eventually blossoms into a profoundly hopeful statement on the importance of self-love... EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
4/5 Hereditary (2018) Aaron Leggo Mental illness rubs up against the occult in Aster's malevolent movie Hereditary, about a mother forced to face her familial fears when her own tyrannical mother passes away. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
2/5 Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Aaron Leggo Day of the Soldado serves only as an overlong, unnecessary reminder of how gripping Denis Villeneuve's 2015 predecessor was. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
1/5 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Aaron Leggo It's starting to seem like the entire purpose of each subsequent entry in this series is to outdo its predecessor in terms of sheer stupidity. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
3/5 Incredibles 2 (2018) Aaron Leggo While the overall experience feels too light, too pointless, too recycled, there's still a sense of excitement to be felt in the moment. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
2.5/5 Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Aaron Leggo Now that the dust has settled, Marvel is back with a lighter, lesser sequel in the form of Ant-Man and the Wasp, a change of pace that's too busy to be breezy. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
1/5 The Meg (2018) Aaron Leggo The Meg is just a toothless take on the "don't go in the water!" subgenre, one that's been significantly run down by its long swim through Hollywood's development hell. EDIT
