40 T4 The Great Wall (2017) - Feb 19, 2017
40 T4 A Cure for Wellness (2017) - Feb 18, 2017
"A Cure for Wellness is one script touch up and 30 minutes of trimming away from being a great movie. As it is, it's a somewhat ambitious film that can't get its mystery to work and can't maintain the thrills for its overlong running time. It's got great production design, it's wonderfully filmed, and it even does a good job generating a strong atmosphere. It's got a silly plot and an even more ridiculous ending. It's not good, but there are far worse things out there. At least it has ambition. [Read Full Review]"
30 T2 Righteous Kill (2008) - Feb 17, 2017
70 T8 JCVD (2008) - Feb 17, 2017
T1 Fist Fight (2017) - Feb 17, 2017
"Bad comedies are a dime a dozen, but Fist Fight somehow manages to be even worse than the majority. None of the jokes land, the characters are all obnoxious idiots that don't even begin to resemble real people, it doesn't understand the word "subtlety," and, I mean, one of its recurring gags is that an adult wants to have sex with the students of the school. If that's your thing, well, there you go, I guess. The rest of you would do well to steer clear. [Read Full Review]"

60 T7 Changeling (2008) - Feb 14, 2017
30 T2 Fifty Shades Darker (2017) - Feb 13, 2017
"I absolutely expected to hate Fifty Shades Darker. It turned out to be bad, but not rage-inducingly bad. Better than the first one. It has a sense of humor, more than one dull plot thread, a little more depth to its characters, and doesn't have its supposed "good" character act like a creepy stalker for most of its running time. It's still impossible to take seriously, indifferently acted, often incredibly stupid, and not emotionally or intellectually engaging, but baby steps, right? [Read Full Review]"
