    They executed the central concept well, but the ending is too abrupt which makes the entire experience feel largely shallow. They flirt with big ideas but reduce them to the most tired and obvious...

    Has the bones of a decent action flick and benefits a lot from Charlize Theron’s presence. However, the craftsmanship and direction are a little lacking. Has the sheen of a direct-to-video effort. ...

    I think this film is perfect. Most enrapturing cinematic experience in a while.

    It would seem strange for them to rely so heavily on de-aging technology considering Fury Road became a cultural phenomenon precisely because it eschewed CGI in favor of practical effects wherever...

    Not saying that any of it is well-executed from a logic standpoint, but I believe that is what the film was trying to sell. Fair point about it not making sense to continue after she’s been...

    There is no “DNC” or “establishment” at play. You have a single moderate candidate who finally got on level ground with the liberal candidate and blew him up. So far, Sanders has shown no ability...

    He does have a motive.

    If the brother sets her up for a crime, she returns her $5 million inheritance to the trust, of which her brother is surely a beneficiary. Making her look insane in the...

    I mean, all you have to do is pay attention to what the Republicans are saying about the Democrats. Trump and the GOP are openly campaigning for Bernie at this point, while eviscerating any moderate...

    No, the architect of the home never lived down there. He built the bunker in the event of a North Korean missile attack. His only connection to the plot is that that original housemaid used to work...

    Joker spends 80% of its run time posturing -- stealing its tone wholesale from Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy -- for no reason but to manipulate you into believing it's doing something important....

    Joker is this year's Green Book/Vice. Artless stories dressed up by comedy directors who play pretend auteurs with studio resources. This is not visionary work; it's painting by numbers. Phillips...

    Shrug.

    I liked it well enough. Not as relevatory from a cinematic aspect as The Force Awakens but certainly watchable and a competent closure of storylines. Maybe Iím grading on a curve, because...

    This had no atmosphere whatsoever. It felt neither tense enough nor psychedelic enough. Just a lot of VFX money wasted on cheesy looking creatures. Huge drop-off in filmmaking quality from the...

    I don’t know. I think Irish may be onto something. It’s not clear that Bay can even put together a watchable movie without the aid of a producer who has a grasp of basic story. This is consistent...

    I turned it off after 40 minutes. I was in the mood for something dumb and mindless, not something boring and indecipherably edited.

    It’s a solid yarn. No more, no less. This is exactly the type of movie that earns a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. Plot-driven, with safe and inconsequential content. Some silly allusions to Trump that...

    I thought this was pretty masterfully done by the involved parties. For me, it's far and away the best thing Baumbach has done to date. I've enjoyed several of his movies, but this is the first one...

    Why didn't they just brand this as a stand-alone Harley Quinn movie and title it as such? That would've been easier to sell than whatever this is supposed to be.
