Rating Title/Year Author
Nebulous Dark (2021) Nathaniel Muir It will only appeal to a small audience, but the heart put into the movie comes through the screen. Derivative and confusing. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2021
For Madmen Only (2020) Nathaniel Muir Interesting documentary that examines comedy and the thin line between creativity and crazy. You may not have heard of Del Close, but you know him. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2021
Faraway Eyes (2020) Nathaniel Muir A nice twist on the typical romantic comedy formula is fun for the most part. A misstep at the end hinders thing, but does not ruin it. EDIT
Posted Jul 22, 2021
Broken Diamonds (2021) Nathaniel Muir Lola Kirke carries this erratic movie that never seems quite sure what it wants to be. The movie may be polarizing, but that does not mean it will stand out. EDIT
Posted Jul 22, 2021
Bloodshot Heart (2020) Nathaniel Muir Bloodshot Heart is entertaining, thought provoking, and yes, frustrating. It is a rare case where things are all over the place, but still manages to be engaging. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2021
Settlers (2021) Nathaniel Muir The rare science fiction movie that is less about bombastic effects and more about the emotions of its characters. It works for the most part. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2021
Kandisha (2020) Nathaniel Muir The story is pretty barebones and there is little in the way of character development aside from the leads, but horror fans should enjoy this gore fest. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2021
Jolt (2021) Nathaniel Muir Kate Beckinsale shines in this over the top action comedy. The science may be silly, but the film never takes itself too seriously making it a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2021
Blood Red Sky (2021) Nathaniel Muir One of the most original movies of the year comes with a premise that sounds too ridiculous to be good. Not quite as emotional as it would like, but still a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2021
Charlatan (2020) Nathaniel Muir While the movie has some mixed messages, the story is fascinating and the performances are great. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2021
Skinwalker (2021) Nathaniel Muir The story takes two exciting genres and is able to make an entertaining movie out of them. Flawed, but fun. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2021
8.5/10 Titane (2021) Nathaniel Muir A dysfunctional mess of a movie that remains consistently entertaining. Sexy and violent, the film appeals to the more visceral side while tackling deep themes. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2021
The Call (2020) Nathaniel Muir The film has its flaws, but strong performances from a pair of horror icons and a fun premise make this worth picking up. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2021
River (2021) Nathaniel Muir A confusing science fiction movie that never seems to know what it wants to be. The ending feels undeserved while the writing alternates between mediocre and horrible. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2021
We Intend to Cause Havoc (2019) Nathaniel Muir A interesting look at an overlooked form of music that came and went before it had a chance to leave a real impact. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2021
Great White (2021) Nathaniel Muir Some decent CGI effects and tense moments help this movie set itself apart from being just another killer shark movie. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2021
Dachra (2018) Nathaniel Muir It may not be the most familiar horror movie, but originality is not a hallmark of the genre, anyway. Great atmosphere work to offset the annoying leads. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2021
After Yang (2021) Nathaniel Muir Science fiction has a strong human quality not always found in the genre. The story is sparse, but provides maximum emotional impact. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2021
Scales (2019) Nathaniel Muir Attempts to get a strong message across, but forgets to tell a good story along the way. The movie is short and looks great, which makes it worth a watch. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2021

Posted Jul 8, 2021
Annette (2021) Nathaniel Muir Possibly the most delicate film of the year. An odd mix of chaos and order that is captivating. Adam Driver is great, if overpowering. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2021

Posted Jul 6, 2021
Marathon (2021) Nathaniel Muir Sticking to the formula perfected by director Christopher Guest, the story is filled with the right amount of oddball characters and is consistently funny. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2021
No Loss // No Gain (2021) Nathaniel Muir Much like eating food just because it is there, the movie is only watchable just to see if it is able to tie up all the plot threads it introduces. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2021

Posted Jul 1, 2021
Long Story Short (2021) Nathaniel Muir The movie is a standard one that brings nothing new to the equation. The cast and some genuinely funny moments carry the film. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2021
9/10 Vicious Fun (2020) Nathaniel Muir Violent, funny, and over the top, the movie lives up to its name from start to finish. Amazing soundtrack and practical effects that are reminiscent of a simpler time. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2021
Black Medusa (2021) Nathaniel Muir The lack of clear motivation takes away from the sheer brutality of the protagonist. There is no doubting how good the film looks and sounds, but it never sits right. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2021
Too Late (2021) Nathaniel Muir The movie takes on a lot - and most of the time, it does a decent job. The problem becomes, it deals with so much nothing stands out. Fun, but unmemorable. EDIT

Posted Jun 25, 2021

Posted Jun 25, 2021
The Serpent (2020) Nathaniel Muir Too confusing to be fun, too inconsistent to be entertaining. In other words, it is a frustrating watch that is not worth the time. EDIT
Posted Jun 23, 2021
School's Out Forever (2021) Nathaniel Muir Nothing comes together quite as well as it should. The acting is tremendous but the conflicting tones make can be off putting. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2021
9/10 Accepted (2021) Nathaniel Muir Tremendous documentary that poses interesting questions. It also does a great job of bringing to light the flaws in the education system. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2021
Italian Studies (2021) Nathaniel Muir Vanessa Kirby and the production carry the entire movie. A very disjointed plot and shallow characters make this a hard one to get into fully. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2021
Father of the Cyborgs (2020) Nathaniel Muir The documentary may sound like a wild science fiction story, but it is a real exploration of self experimentation and the ethics involved in neurosurgery. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2021

Posted Jun 19, 2021

Posted Jun 19, 2021
No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics (2021) Nathaniel Muir The documentary is to the point, but it covers a part of the comics industry that is rarely talked about. Great art and and interesting look back. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2021

Posted Jun 15, 2021

Posted Jun 15, 2021
All the Streets Are Silent: The Convergence of Hip Hop and Skateboarding (1987-1997) (2021) Nathaniel Muir A fascinating look at hip hop and New York City. The skateboarding parts lack the same interest, but it is still a fun look at a unique time. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2021

Posted Jun 11, 2021
Domino: Battle of the Bones (2021) Nathaniel Muir The movie is a throwback to the comedies of the 80s and 90s. Still, some of the jokes are timeless and will make you laugh. It is just a matter of whether the plot will connect to today's audiences. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2021
Undercover Punch and Gun (2019) Nathaniel Muir It is all about the fight scenes as the story has nothing to offer. How much a person likes these moments will determine what they think of the film overall. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2021
9/10 The Amusement Park (1973) Nathaniel Muir Arguably, Romero's most frightening movie, this lost film uses real life terror to captivate and scare the audience. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2021
Chasing Wonders (2020) Nathaniel Muir What seems like a run of the mill coming of age film works thanks to the beautiful scenery and focus on story and characters. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2021
8.5/10 Baphomet (2021) Nathaniel Muir A movie does not have to be traditionally good to be entertaining. This horror movie barely makes any sense, but some amazing performances makes this a must watch. EDIT
