80 78% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) - Dec 14, 2018
"Visually eye-popping, consistently funny, and home to a couple of the year’s most sheerfully delightful sequences. All that said, it’s hard not to be a little let-down by a film that spends so much time poking fun at origin stories (particularly in regards to Spider-Man) while refusing to abandon that structure itself. The film never sustains full flight due to its origin baggage, but hopefully a sequel or two will remedy that. Also, this needed way more John Mulaney Spider-Ham silliness. "
93 95% Schindler's List (1993) - Dec 11, 2018
"Wrenching and achingly powerful on top of being just beautifully made and totally captivating for its 3+ hour runtime. A trio of excellent performances by Neeson, Fiennes, and Kingsley and a tearfully arresting score by Williams renders this as a truly exquisite work. "
25 6% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) - Nov 24, 2018
"Must have the worst “number of characters / characters you actually care about” ratio of any major blockbuster of the last several years. Never felt involved in the film’s excessive swirling subplots, tragic relationships, or eye-rolling backstories. An incoherent calamity that feels four hours long."
48 23% The Grinch (2018) - Nov 23, 2018
"The most interesting thing about this movie is the inexplicable casting of Angela Lansbury as a one-off incidental character with one scene and maybe three lines. The new approach to the Max/Grinch relationship would be admirable if it had amounted to anything at all."
62 37% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) - Nov 22, 2018
"Extremely hit-or-miss entertainment (even in its best moments, namely scenes involving the Disney princesses and an unexpected musical number). The straight internet-related humor felt way too cutesy and overly-reliant on just naming things audiences would recognize to garner cheap laughs. The mid-credits scene is the comedic highlight (despite already being present in the trailers). The film’s friendship-centric message is beautiful and smartly integrated (albeit hugely ham-fisted by the end)"
67 49% The Ocean Waves (1993) - Nov 03, 2018
74 61% The Secret of NIMH (1982) - Oct 28, 2018
66 46% Venom (2018) - Oct 27, 2018
"A glorious return to the campy silliness of the Raimi Spider-Man trilogy. Others will disagree, but I think this film is completely aware of its own absurdity and humor (the diner scene with the lobster tank was what finally convinced me). There are a lot of genuine laughs in this movie and I will gladly watch a sequel should one materialize. More $100 million dollar vehicles for weird Tom Hardy comedy performances please."
29 7% August Rush (2007) - Oct 27, 2018
