"Staggeringly vicious, unforgiving, and utterly unique to its genre, reaching for nothing more than to paint, in visceral detail, the intimate portrait of a dying man on the run. Despite the bleak canvas and the trembling, Holy sh— violence, the filmmakers do not fail to draw attention to the glimmer of hope in their sitter’s eye or the yearning humanity in his expression."
|70 T5||The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) - Nov 04, 2017
"I am of the opinion that Oscar Wilde’s play is simply too hilarious to ruin; at the very least, this film has his words to its credit. Its execution is not particularly clever, and comes off very staged in parts, but it’s still undeniably fun and more than a little charming."
|50 T2||Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) - Oct 27, 2017
"In many ways more polished and effective as an action film than its predecessor, but loses some of the first film’s organic (and silly) fun in the exchange, leaving this one a little limp."
|75 T6||Blade Runner 2049 (2017) - Oct 21, 2017
"Unquestionably gorgeous and powerfully atypical, but ultimately disappointing due to a questionable plot with too many unnecessary elements. A simpler, more straightforward story with fewer characters and deeper subtext would have served the filmmakers and the world of Blade Runner better. Tremendous visuals, though. Really. And magnificent bursts of action."
|55 T2||Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) - Oct 21, 2017
"A silly, cheesy action film, as must be expected. Kinda fun, definitely tacky."
|45 T1||Security (2017) - Oct 17, 2017
"An actually brainless, unstylish B-movie; Antonio Banderas deserves better."
|75 T6||The Babysitter (2017) - Oct 17, 2017
"Polished and clever; quite fun."
|70 T5||Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004) - Oct 16, 2017
"Unabashedly unique and lighthearted. A fun little romp."
|60 T3||Super Troopers (2002) - Oct 13, 2017
"Cheap, juvenile humour placed in a unique film solidly aware of its own silliness; enjoyable."
|75 T6||Blade Runner (1982) - Oct 13, 2017
"Initially, its patient storytelling is welcome, facilitating immersion in the film’s dark, lonely world. By the end, however, transitions are conspicuously absent due to individual scenes’ lengths, and the slow pace of the film feels clunky. Regardless, a compelling film with a depth of symbolism and undeniable visual panache."
