8/10 Child's Play (2019) Alyse Wax I think that because Child's Play carries that title, a lot of purists will go in hating it. But honestly, 2019's Child's Play is a lot of fun. EDIT

6/10 Ma (2019) Alyse Wax Ma is an entertaining film (though it did feel long, despite being less than 100 minutes), but don't go in hoping for a twisty story or shocking moments. There just weren't any. EDIT

4/10 The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Joshua Starnes A technically astute scare-by-numbers which risks nothing and offers little. EDIT

7.5/10 Long Shot (2019) Joshua Starnes As political satire Long Shot is pretty light, but as romantic comedy it packs plenty of charm into a straight forward formula. EDIT

5/10 Aladdin (2019) Joshua Starnes Loud, garish and extremely well-intentioned, Aladdin is a shining example of the limits of Disney's attempts to render its greatest animated classics into live action. EDIT

6 / 10 Brightburn (2019) Spencer Perry Though Brightburn seldom strays too far from the expected, there are moments where a unique sensibility on the story takes hold. EDIT

8/10 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Spencer Perry The movie works because it delivers everything you want and all the things you didn't know you needed. EDIT

6.5/10 High Life (2018) Joshua Starnes There's a part of High Life which is legitimately unsettling and brilliant, and part which is hopelessly muddled and the dichotomy is deadly. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2019
4/10 Hellboy (2019) Spencer Perry Hellboy seems lost in a haze entirely, a series of scenes strung together with barely a path to guide them. EDIT
Posted Apr 12, 2019
8/10 Missing Link (2019) Joshua Starnes It may not be the best Laika has ever managed, but it's way up there, showcasing the thought and care everyone involved has put into the film. EDIT

5.5/10 Glass (2019) Alan Cerny What we get is a superhero movie that pulls its punches, and no one wants to see that. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
7.5/10 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Alan Cerny The Lego Movie 2 covers a lot of the same ground as the first movie, but since it's still as entertaining as it is, audiences probably won't mind. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
8/10 Shazam! (2019) Alan Cerny In the pantheon of the genre, SHAZAM! is pure superhero entertainment. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
9/10 Us (2019) Spencer Perry Us is a challenging movie, a film that doesn't wear its themes like a bright vest but instead requires a more exhaustive examination, and perhaps repeat viewings. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
6.5/10 The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Alyse Wax The Curse of La Llorona is a solid little flick. It probably won't make waves; it probably won't impress die-hard horrorhounds. It may make more of an impression on someone who was raised hearing stories of La Llorona. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2019
8.5/10 Pet Sematary (2019) Alyse Wax Directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer create a creepy masterpiece with Pet Sematary. It is dark, it is brooding, it is foreboding. It takes the story of a dead child and a family's heartbreak to an even bleaker place. EDIT

6/10 The Upside (2018) Joshua Starnes The Upside may not have a place in modern cinema and even if it did, its parts don't fit together particularly well. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2019
5/10 Escape Room (2019) Spencer Perry Though its plot is as recycled as plastic, it manages to flip and twist itself into places that remain entertaining for most of its run time. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2019
7.5/10 Vice (2018) Joshua Starnes It's clever, but beyond drawing attention to itself for its cleverness, it doesn't have enough to offer. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2018
6.5/10 Bumblebee (2018) Joshua Starnes A necessary course correction but it requires Knight and his crew to spend so much time focused on what the series is not, it never comes up with a good case what it is. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2018
7.5/10 Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Joshua Starnes If all that can be said of it is that creates a stage for Ronan and Robbie to bestride and conquer, that's just about worth the price of admission on its own. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2018
6.5/10 On the Basis of Sex (2018) Joshua Starnes It's a good try and its heart is in the right place; if nothing else it proves Jones can carry almost any material. EDIT

6.5/10 Mortal Engines (2018) Scott Chitwood As great as many of the elements in Mortal Engines are, it does have its fair share of issues which drag it down. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2018
7/10 Aquaman (2018) Spencer Perry Aquaman is a well blended smoothie of 1980s fare, which often works to its advantage but sometimes results in clumsy and clunky moments. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2018
8/10 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Scott Chitwood It's funny, engaging, and action packed. This is a great holiday film that the whole family can enjoy together. EDIT

Widows (2018) Candice Frederick Leave it up to Steve McQueen to revitalize the heist movie in such a way that it moves beyond the shoot-'em-up, grand theft business to tell a story about Chicago's dirty politics, social and economic corruption, and moral ambiguity. EDIT

8/10 Trumbo (2015) J. Don Birnam Movie and history buffs will be immersed in this pointed and reference-filled exploration of one of the most infamous chapters in Hollywood and American history, while Cranston fans will be delighted to see the actor's immense talents translate so well EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
9/10 Ixcanul (2015) J. Don Birnam The greatest success of Ixcanul, about a Maya woman living in the Guatemalan mountains, is that it makes you feel as though you have come to deeply understand a culture that is so deeply unfamiliar to us EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
Van Helsing (2004) Scott Chitwood I think Van Helsing is worth seeing on the big screen, if nothing else than for the audience reaction and to see the action and effects in the theater. EDIT

9/10 A Star Is Born (2018) Joshua Starnes From top to bottom A Star is Born is a success, the rare remake that proves not only that it has more to say about its subject but that there is more to say. EDIT

7/10 The House With a Clock in Its Walls (2018) Joshua Starnes It is unremarkable, undifferentiated kid-family fun that's actually fun - which may be the most remarkable thing about it. EDIT

6.5/10 Kin (2018) Joshua Starnes Kin's core themes and Elijah's strength as the embodiment of them creates real emotional attachment that even the goofiest character choices cannot undermine. EDIT
