"Charming, colourful, and quite a bit of fun! "
|60 T3||Pilgrimage (2017) - May 13, 2018
"The film is static until the final act, where characters finally begin to fray, develop, and become interesting. Until then, the film relies on scenery and droning anticipation, which just barely carries investment until the compelling end."
|75 T7||Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - May 05, 2018
"This really is an incredible feat of filmmaking. The universe-trotting concept allows for interesting combinations of characters without complex (or any) exposition and the solitary, one-track villain makes the thrust of the plot pleasingly uncomplicated. It’s where the filmmakers don’t miraculously make it all feel simple that it frays, but remarkably, despite its thousand-and-one headlining cast members, genre-shifting sources, and questionable prequels, it never falls apart."
|75 T7||Thor: Ragnarok (2017) - May 05, 2018
"The film does not juggle its comedy, action, and drama without flaw, but it still puts on a show that’s enjoyable from start to finish, with remarkable moments under each genre. Breathes new life and literal new colour into the franchise, though an oversaturation of too-ambitious CGI taints the visuals."
|55 T2||Centurion (2010) - Apr 18, 2018
"An unimaginative pursuit thriller, lackluster in every way but for occasionally beautiful Scottish scenery."
|20 T1||Acts Of Vengeance (2017) - Apr 14, 2018
"Poorly paced, awfully written, and badly executed in performance and cinematography. (DNF)"
|85 T9||Isle of Dogs (2018) - Apr 12, 2018
"Peerless in the originality of its voice and artistic quality, and a charming tale to boot, though read beyond its lines the film's politics paint some concerningly imperceptive parallels."
|60 T3||Concussion (2015) - Apr 09, 2018
"May have been more effective as a dedicated biopic. As it was, it was a little unfocused and overall unremarkable."
|60 T3||The Miracle Season (2018) - Apr 06, 2018
"Affecting as any by-the-books cinderella story is affecting: the acting was alright, the story was enough, and it was even based on a true story."
|75 T7||Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) - Apr 04, 2018
"The filmmakers kept their formula simple and achieved every result they reached for. The film is predictable and the concept is tacky, but everything works and the final product is actually a lot of fun—a lesson in the KISS theory achieving great results: Keep It Simple, Silly. That each of the adult leads nailed their role and clearly had fun doing it certainly doesn’t hurt, either."
