0 Pixels (2015) Bob Chipman It is cinematic strychnine. Celluloid chlamydia. I shouldn't even be here, this isn't my jurisdiction: I'm a film critic, and Pixels isn't a movie - it's an active crime scene. And the crime is cultural vandalism. EDIT

3.5 Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Bob Chipman If Awakens was about The Resistance and The First Order repeating the cycle of The Rebellion and The Empire, this one is all about how they have to become their own things and what the proper way to get there is going to be - and that's exciting. EDIT

1 12 Strong (2018) Bob Chipman An orgasmically patriotic "Vengeance For 9-11" U.S. military infomercial from Jerry Bruckheimer; the overriding theme of which is that charging headlong into a ground war in Afghanistan without much in the way of a plan was a noble and really smart idea EDIT

3 Early Man (2018) Bob Chipman Apart from some song choices, it's is about as charmingly old-school as a Western animated feature has been in a long time. EDIT

3 Ready Player One (2018) Bob Chipman [It's] almost like you can feel Spielberg on autopilot, thinking about more interesting, challenging projects he'll be working on when this is done re-affirming his box-office credentials. EDIT

3.5 Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Bob Chipman Short version: Very good, better than the second, not as good as the first, not as good as Guardians of The Galaxy 2 or Black Panther more recently. EDIT

2.5 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Bob Chipman Credit where due to Fallen Kingdom - it at least finally feels like they've left the story in a place they can't take back. EDIT
