Posted Apr 15, 2019
4/4 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Wesley Lovell There will never be a better take on the Spider-Man character. This film is better than 90% of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that Disney has put out. EDIT

Posted Apr 15, 2019

Posted Apr 15, 2019

Posted Apr 15, 2019

Posted Apr 15, 2019
3.5/4 Vice (2018) Wesley Lovell A strange biopic that presents Dick Cheney, warts and all, but never entirely humanizes him, which is a good thing. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
2.5/4 At Eternity's Gate (2018) Wesley Lovell Willem Dafoe needs a better vessel for this performance. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019

Posted Apr 15, 2019

Posted Apr 8, 2019

Posted Mar 10, 2019

Posted Mar 10, 2019
3.5/4 Widows (2018) Wesley Lovell Davis' stoicism has been her stock in trade for years. That whip-smart personality of forceful vengeance makes her the ideal woman to head this stellar cast of actors. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2019
3.5/4 Suspiria (2018) Wesley Lovell Can it compare? Should it compare? Knowing the intention behind the director's vision is as important to that assessment of the film as is knowing the original. EDIT

Posted Mar 10, 2019

Posted Aug 7, 2018

Posted Aug 7, 2018
3.5/4 Black Panther (2018) Wesley Lovell Even without the franchise best production design, costumes, cinematography, and effects, "Black Panther" has a compelling story at its heart that makes both heroes and villains relatable. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2018

Posted Jun 9, 2018
3.5/4 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Wesley Lovell Actions don't have consequences, but that seems unimportant in this slice-of-real town USA drama. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2018
3.5/4 Game Night (2018) Wesley Lovell With so many different types of comedies, there is plenty of room for a slow boil riot like this one. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2018
4/4 Lady Bird (2017) Wesley Lovell Saoirse Ronan is not only finest working actor of her generation, but she elevates everything she's in. With all the things going for this movie, it makes it even better. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2018

Posted Jun 9, 2018
3/4 Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) Wesley Lovell Better than it has any right to be, this middle chapter doesn't answer nearly enough questions, but is entertaining nonetheless. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2018
