Outside the Wire (2021)
Outside the Wire has the overall feel of a lazy Sunday afternoon cable movie that your dad would have probably liked.

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)
Wonder Woman 1984 recalls the kind of warm but welcomingly hokey nature of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films when they were at their best.
Posted Dec 22, 2020
Big and booming, there's plenty of bombastic thrills and brink-of-annihilation action, with just enough human connection to keep viewers engaged.

Mank is sure to be one of the best head-scratchers of the year.
Posted Dec 4, 2020
Fatman is like getting a decent pair of socks under the tree. You're thankful for them, but they aren't gonna be the gifts you remember.

It's certainly a more pleasant and palatable experience than the original Star Wars Holiday Special, but it's not nearly as memorable.

The Craft: Legacy (2020)
[The Craft: Legacy has] a lack of effective comedy, an extremely mishandled villain, and a script that never feels as committed as the actresses that are on the screen.

Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (2020)
...there is no question that Borat 2 is the funniest film of the year in a year where laughs are few and far between.
Posted Oct 21, 2020
Love and Monsters (2020)
If not for the legitimately delightful monster sequences, [Love and Monsters] would rate a lot lower. Instead, it just manages to get a passing grade.
Posted Oct 15, 2020
The Mist (2007)
...those who can stomach [The Mist] are likely to walk away with one of the most memorable monster movie experiences they have ever had.
Posted Oct 7, 2020
Hubie Halloween (2020)
On its own, Hubie Halloween is a mediocre but mostly harmless little comedy. When grading on the Adam Sandler curve, it passes with flying colors.
Posted Oct 7, 2020
By the end of the movie, Ava comes across less like a feature film and more like a weak pilot for a show that never got picked up to series.
Posted Sep 22, 2020
Cuties (Mignonnes) (2020)
Cuties is the kind of movie that is actually a very impressive piece of filmmaking and storytelling, but its subject matter and depictions make it impossible to recommend.
Posted Sep 10, 2020
The Disney remakes have been far more miss than hit, and Mulan is one of their most massive misses.
Posted Sep 7, 2020
Devoid of soul and verve, Tenet is a winning science project but a failure as a piece of art.
Posted Sep 6, 2020
Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020)
Face the Music isn't going to save the world, but it will remind you that the world is worth saving.
Posted Aug 27, 2020
Gripping, harrowing, and ultimately endearing, You Cannot Kill David Arquette is one of the brightest spots in an otherwise terribly dark year.
Posted Aug 26, 2020
Dark City (1998)
Dark City is unabashed in its eccentricities and relishes the hypnotic, mystifying world it creates.
Posted Aug 12, 2020
Waiting for the Barbarians (2020)
If the script and filmmaking [were] as riveting as the story's thematic weight, Waiting for the Barbarians could have been a real winner.
Posted Aug 7, 2020
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Star Trek Into Darkness is a hopeless, vindictive, immoral blight on the name Star Trek. If that doesn't make it the worst Star Trek movie, I don't know what does.
Posted Jul 18, 2020
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is much better than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Posted Jul 13, 2020
The Old Guard (2020)
It's a bummer that The Old Guard isn't more than the sum of its parts, but the parts are well-crafted and enjoyable.
Posted Jul 10, 2020
The Prestige (2006)
The Prestige's magic is real. You just have to be looking for it.
Posted Jul 2, 2020
Suicide Squad (2016)
Suicide Squad [has] a lot more bright spots than its reputation leads you to believe.
Posted Jun 29, 2020
If the movie didn't have Ferrell at the forefront, there's a chance it could be significantly better.
Posted Jun 26, 2020
True Lies (1994)
True Lies is a good but not great movie. It has phenomenal set pieces and a good cast, but it's tough to totally argue for a movie with such bad things attached to it
Posted Jun 25, 2020
Ten years later, Inception continues to function as a thrilling sci-fi heist film, but its deeper secrets are what has cemented it as Christopher Nolan's masterpiece.
Posted Jun 19, 2020
Judge Dredd (1995)
As a piece of pure production, [Judge Dredd] needs to be heralded as one of the best achievements of the '90s. Everything about the film's texture is a resounding success.
Posted Jun 11, 2020
The Iron Giant (1999)
...an incredible achievement in both narrative and animation.
Posted Jun 3, 2020
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
So many movies feel derivative or fall into easily recognizable categories. [Scott Pilgrim] is a movie that stands out from the crowd and continues to do so ten years later.
Posted Jun 1, 2020
[Alien 3] is a vastly different experience than any other movie in the series, and that alone makes it a unique project worth celebrating.
Posted May 26, 2020
All these years later, Casper has managed to stick around thanks to it offering a pleasant blend of what audiences expect from a kids movie and some weightier thematic fare.
Posted May 24, 2020
Starship Troopers (1997)
Time is the only real judge of art, and time has been more than kind to Starship Troopers.
Posted May 20, 2020
Scoob! is good as a kids flick and not bad as a Scooby-Doo vehicle.
Posted May 15, 2020
Thanks to a confident take and assured execution from Josh Trank, this is a movie that will likely be remembered as one of the more unique entries in the gangster sub-genre.
Posted May 12, 2020
The Phantom (1996)
If you're looking for a movie that captures the foundational spirit of comic book adventure, The Phantom is for you.
Posted May 8, 2020
Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005)
Zathura is a kids movie that doesn't demean its target audience... This is a solid A-grade experience for young viewers and kids at heart.
Posted Apr 29, 2020
Planet of the Humans (2020)
[Planet of the Humans] plays like a documentary your science teacher would've put on in high school so that they could catch up on grading some papers.
Posted Apr 22, 2020
Constantine deserves a cult following and should be remembered for all the things it did right instead of its perceived wrongs.
Posted Apr 22, 2020
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
...when it's all said and done, Thor: The Dark World deserves its reputation as the worst MCU movie.
Posted Apr 16, 2020
Punisher: War Zone (2008)
Punisher: War Zone delivers a comic book movie with an emphasis on "comic." A hard-R celebration of overblown movie violence. A bold, brash, and bonkers splatterfest.
Posted Mar 31, 2020
Full of tired clichés, cardboard characters, and a lack of filmmaking panache, Bloodshot never delivers anything that makes it stand out from the crowd.
Posted Mar 25, 2020
The Hunt (2020)
The Hunt has very little to recommend outside of a few good gore gags and Betty Gilpin delivering the goods.
Posted Mar 20, 2020
Cloud Atlas (2012)
It doesn't matter if Cloud Atlas ends up being more than the sum of its parts when the parts are this good.
Posted Oct 27, 2012
One of the best movies of the year.
Posted Sep 28, 2012
Karl Urban is the Judge Dredd you've been waiting for.
Posted Sep 21, 2012
Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)
Most franchises which make it to 5 movies start to run out of ideas by then, but if Retribution has one glaring problem it's that it has far too many of them.
Posted Sep 14, 2012
Total Recall (2012)
A lot of fun in its own way; a big, flashy summer movie with loads of incredibly cool high-tech ideas standing in for good character-driven ones.
Posted Aug 3, 2012
The Watch (2012)
Seeing Richard Ayoade in this film is like watching someone confronted by a T-Rex and hoping that if he holds really still it won't eat him.
Posted Jul 27, 2012
Funny, haunting and thought-provoking.
