|50 15%||Hercules (1997) - Oct 20, 2020
"The animation is largely cheap and ugly, Hercules is a terribly boring protagonist, and the romance sucks, but Meg and Hades are uniquely and well voiced. An underwhelming outing with just enough charm for my negative opinion to be unpopular."
|50 15%||S.W.A.T.: Under Siege (2017) - Oct 19, 2020
"It never fulfills its potential, but the concept is solid and the production earns an easy B+ grade (only the final twist and the vixen-villain are full schlock). Never unwatchable, but never much better than you’d expect."
|40 7%||Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) - Oct 19, 2020
"The protagonists of the last film are left bumbling on the sidelines as a whole host of characters that the film makes no effort to make a viewer care about flop around in an absolute mess of a story. Shallow, poorly structured, and uninteresting. An utter flop."
|70 53%||Buffaloed (2019) - Oct 09, 2020
"The movie is (if I’ve learned anything about Buffalo from this) purposely ugly, but the awful interior lighting and colour grading is often just unpleasant. Luckily there’s a perfectly colourful central performance dragging us along through the ugliness, engaging us in the seedy world of the film with an energy that all but overcomes it. Its quickness and chaos carry interest, but also diminish any humanizing effect: Peg remains amusingly incorrigible but also curiously immoral to the end."
|55 22%||Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) - Oct 05, 2020
"Created for no discernable audience and featuring an incomprehensibly stupid plot and only the ever-toxic Manny for “character development”. There’s a lot happening here (a three-film Ice Age marathon didn’t help make sense of it all), and as a package it’s a baffling mess, but once in a while the chaos produces a laugh; sometimes even a genuine one. It’s something else, that’s for sure."
|60 31%||Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) - Oct 05, 2020
"An improvement over the preceding two, but nowhere near the heights of the original. Dinklage plays a mean villain (heh) and iceolating the original trio (though Granny’s a nice addition) from the baggage they’ve collected in the preceding films is an effective move, but the longer the series goes on and the deeper they dive into his gross male stereotype, the more unwatchable Manny becomes."
|45 11%||Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) - Oct 05, 2020
"Laughs are few and far between, lost in a mess of underwhelming story beats without stakes or drive. Boring."
|60 31%||Furious (2017) - Oct 01, 2020
"Its storyline is a little rocky and it's unclear how necessary their final stand really was, but for a film made entirely indoors it’s surprisingly immersive: stylish and moderately engaging. Never achieves greatness, but it’s entertaining."
|25 2%||Guardians of the Tomb (2018) - Sep 29, 2020
"Nothing about this was done well. The best I can say about it is that the Chinese siblings were both hot, and that it wasn’t, like, a cheap disaster—it’d be an egregious stretch to even call it a nonprecious gemstone, but it was polished, after a fashion."
|70 53%||The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (2010) - Sep 27, 2020
"It may be a little hokey, but it’s also charmingly silly, and Adèle is a superbly compelling central character, as dry, yet sweet, as her name suggests. The film is quick, funny, and daft—a winning combination as steered by Bourgoin’s protagonist."
