6/10 The Woman in the Window (2021) Matt Fowler Still, if you're looking for a higher class of claustrophobic Noir, and don't care too much about the resolution, there's a playfulness on display here that might scratch an airport novel itch. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2021
7/10 Riders of Justice (2020) Matt Fowler A pleasant surprise that both undermines and elevates typical revenge sagas, Riders of Justice is a unique blend that charms and captivates. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2021
3/10 Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021) Siddhant Adlakha It's a hollow imitation of the series, unable to meet its most basic visual and narrative expectations. It's also a bad film in general, which tries to tell a socially relevant story that it can't seem to handle. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2021
5/10 Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021) Robert Daniels While there's plenty of large entertaining set pieces, Sheridan's intriguing premise withers under its overabundant components. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2021
6/10 Wrath of Man (2021) Matt Fowler Jason Statham is fine as is, as expected, but because so many other characters are one-note it lessens the overall emotional impact. There was a better movie in here, tucked away in the needless time jumps, and you catch glimpses of it here and there. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2021
10/10 The Castle of Cagliostro (1979) Mark Bozon A true masterpiece. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2021
5/10 The Water Man (2020) Siddhant Adlakha Despite the powerful child performance at its center, David Oyelowo's The Water Man struggles to focus on more than one narrative or visual idea at a time. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2021
7/10 Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (2021) Zaki Hasan Even as Tom Clancy's Without Remorse goes through some familiar paces, it's elevated by the presence at its center of star/producer Michael B. Jordan. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
8/10 The Mitchells vs. the Machines (2021) Matt Fowler The Mitchells vs. The Machines is a ridiculous, riotous, and relevant adventure fill with great humor and winning sentiment. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
5/10 Things Heard & Seen (2021) Emily Tannenbaum Seyfried and Norton's layered performances don't make up for a messy attempt at creating a supernatural allegory for the trauma of emotional abuse. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
9/10 Justice Society: World War II (2021) Jesse Schedeen It draws just the right amount of inspiration from the source material while also pulling from adventure movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark to spin an entertaining superhero yarn. EDIT
Posted Apr 28, 2021
7/10 Mortal Kombat (2021) Mitchell Saltzman It finds its footing in the second half and delivers a gleefully cheesy and entertaining take on one of gaming's most historic franchises and a solid starting point for future films. EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2021
8/10 Stowaway (2021) Robert Daniels Stowaway, Joe Penna & Ryan Morrison's latest, is a suspenseful survivalist drama well-plotted to sweaty-palmed effect. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2021
7/10 Synchronic (2019) Matt Fowler The movie makes superb use of New Orleans as a a city that hums with hauntings and harrowing history. Synchronic isn't a home run, but a decent time travel triple is always welcome. EDIT
Posted Apr 21, 2021
7/10 Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train (2020) Richard Eisenbeis Ufotable's jaw-dropping visuals alone make Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train well worth a watch, even if the film stumbles a bit at the climax. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2021
8/10 Monday (2020) Kristy Puchko Romance is often gussied up with noble heroes, dastardly villains, slapstick shenanigans, or MPAA-taunting eroticism. Monday rejects all of these adornments and is nonetheless a stunner. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2021
8/10 The Courier (2020) Matt Fowler The Courier is a tense, well-executed spy drama that wisely focuses on character and performance more than thrills, knowing that if we actually care about these men it will drastically heighten every narrowed glance, near miss, and frightful chase. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2021
8/10 In The Earth (2021) Tom Jorgensen If you've been romanticizing an extended sojourn into nature after the pandemic blows over, In the Earth is here to remind you to respect the power of the great outdoors before you walk out the front door. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2021
Thunder Force (2021) Kristy Puchko Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer have sparkling screen presence, but can't thrive under Ben Falcone's utter lack of vision. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2021
6/10 Voyagers (2021) Matt Fowler The cast is talented and the premise is promising, but the story plays out in a predictable fashion, which also works, in a way, to undercut the meaning. EDIT
Posted Apr 7, 2021
5/10 The Unholy (2021) Kristy Puchko Coming out on the high heels of Lil Nas X's controversial "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)," this devil's tale feels laughably tame. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2021
10/10 The Father (2020) Siddhant Adlakha It's a masterwork of both technical filmmaking and soulful drama, packed into a brisk 97 minutes that feels, by design, both like an eternity and like fleeting moments slipping through your fingers like water. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2021
5/10 Concrete Cowboy (2020) Siddhant Adlakha By the end, it's hard to know who any of these characters really are, or how they relate to their surroundings. EDIT
Posted Mar 31, 2021
8/10 Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time (2021) Kyle McLain The themes of hope and positivity introduced are a welcome change for the franchise, and help give a sense of closure for the characters we've come to know and love. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2021
2/10 Cosmic Sin (2021) Matt Fowler Cosmic Sin is an excruciating watch, top to bottom, featuring an absolute mess of camera work, scenes where actors don't interact with one another, and bottom barrel sci-fi leftovers. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2021
7/10 Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Zaki Hasan A fitting reunion for these movie titans, Godzilla vs. Kong gives the people what they want: plenty of monster mayhem! EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2021
The Fabulous Filipino Brothers (2021) Kristy Puchko A comedy that is warm, outlandish, and entertaining. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2021
Bad Trip (2021) Kristy Puchko Despite its dead ends, Bad Trip is a ridiculously fun ride. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2021
8/10 Nobody (2021) Zaki Hasan Yes, it's gruesome and violent, but it's also wickedly funny and surprisingly poignant. And while those Keanu comparisons are always going to be there, Nobody easily holds a candle to Wick. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2021
Alien on Stage (2020) Kristy Puchko On stage, this Alien remake is a total scream. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2021
The Spine of Night (2021) Kristy Puchko Heroes seem bored whether it's maleficence or magnificence that falls before them. So, while intellectually enticing and visually daring, the dogged dryness leaves a curious tale emotionally bereft. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2021
8/10 Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror (2021) Rafael Motamayor Though it's hard to recommend this film to people without at least a passing interest in folk horror or folklore, those who stick with Woodlands Dark will find an expansive, practical, entertaining history lesson. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2021
5/10 City of Lies (2018) Zaki Hasan Even as its ambitions are laudable in casting a wide net over a variety of societal ills, the film can't quite muster the will to follow through on those ambitions and instead succumbs too often to cliche when complexity was required. EDIT
Posted Mar 16, 2021
8/10 Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) Tom Jorgensen Though not every addition feels totally necessary, and some new visual effects stick out as unpolished, it's hard to overstate how much more enjoyable this version of Justice League is. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2021
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run (2020) Kristy Puchko Though not as joltingly outrageous as its predecessors, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run is a winsomely wacky good time, alive with laughs and light-hearted lunacy. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2021
8/10 I Care a Lot (2020) Matt Fowler This contest of wicked wills is a vibrant, penetrating Pandora's Box of predicaments and likeable yet evil central characters, played with satirical skill by Rosamund Pike and Peter Dinklage. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2021
6/10 Coming 2 America (2021) Zaki Hasan While there's little else in this sequel to justify its existence as anything other than a decades-too-late cash grab, there's something to be said for the simple pleasures of visiting with Akeem and the other inhabitants of Zamunda once again. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2021
5/10 Chaos Walking (2021) Tom Jorgensen Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley could have been a compelling duo, but they aren't supported by a creative team that can get on the same page about what the focus of the movie should be. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2021
7/10 Godzilla: Monster Planet (2017) Naoya Fujita While the film employs cel shading and game-like elements, the standard formula of Godzilla gets flipped on its head with humanity on the offense. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2021
4.5/10 Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle (2018) Naoya Fujita Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle takes some promising ingredients, but cooks them into an unpalatable meal. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2021
8/10 Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) Nicole Clark Raya and the Last Dragon is a beautifully animated, action-packed hero's journey, and a great next evolution of Disney's modern-day princess films. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2021
9/10 The Vigil (2019) Siddhant Adlakha Part haunted house, part tech thriller, and entirely grounded by Dave Davis' harrowing performance, the film never loses sight of questions of cultural identity, and the ways it intersects with personal and collective trauma. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2021
5/10 Cherry (2021) Matt Fowler Cherry is big on style and features a bouncy, pricey soundtrack but its examination of the grim reality behind the veteran/addiction cycle feels rather routine. EDIT
Posted Feb 26, 2021
6/10 Tom & Jerry (2021) Matt Fowler Tom & Jerry is a sufficient family offering with a cool cast, a sparkling soundtrack, and occasional fun. EDIT
Posted Feb 26, 2021
9/10 Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) Kristy Puchko Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar is extraordinary because - like its fluffy-haired heroines - it makes no apologies for what it is. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2021
6/10 Willy's Wonderland (2021) Matt Fowler It's a shoestring slasher that gets the job done while also not fully rounding a few of the corners it teases. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2021
8/10 Dead Pigs (2018) Siddhant Adlakha A great first feature from Cathy Yan, Dead Pigs paints a vivid backdrop of globalization, wealth inequality, and the anxieties of a dual Eastern and Western existence. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2021
7/10 Space Sweepers (2021) Zaki Hasan Space Sweepers is low-risk, low-reward entertainment. It's a breezy bit of escapism with some social commentary baked in, but it's the spectacle and whiz-bang that's on the front burner. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2021
5/10 Malcolm & Marie (2021) Siddhant Adlakha While amusing in parts and occasionally incisive, Malcolm & Marie fails to engage its own ideas. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2021
8/10 Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) Siddhant Adlakha Judas and the Black Messiah tears through the usual platitudes of Hollywood biopics, and replaces them with full-throated calls to social revolution. EDIT
