|75 T9||Deadpool 2 (2018) - May 19, 2018
"Deadpool 2 is a funny movie filled with some good action, an engaging supporting cast, and a solid plot. If it stutters, it’s from some inconsistency and with several of its jokes failing to land. It feels a little stale compared to the breath of fresh air that was the first film. Is that enough to significantly diminish the fun? No, it’s not. Deadpool 2 is a lot of fun, and if you liked its predecessor, this is more of what you enjoyed. You’ll have a good time with it, too. [Read Full Review]"
|50 T5||Kodachrome (2017) - May 13, 2018|
|60 T7||Terminal (2018) - May 13, 2018
"Terminal is a pulpy noir thriller that has a preposterous plot, philosophical conversations, a lot of references to Alice in Wonderland, and stylish visuals from which it’s nearly impossible to look away. Sometimes, a movie that looks this good and tells a story this outrageous—weird and fascinating, but ultimately laughably silly—is worth checking out. Terminal is one of those films.

|40 T4||Fishbowl California (2018) - May 12, 2018
"Fishbowl California is a harmless but unambitious indie comedy that feels like many other movies you’ve seen before, but has a few laughs and is never terribly unpleasant. Its generic feeling and lackluster characters keep it from being something that’s terribly worthwhile. It has good actors, many of whom are restricted to bit roles, but doesn’t do enough to differentiate itself from the pack. [Read Full Review]"
|20 T1||The Kissing Booth (2018) - May 12, 2018
"The Kissing Booth is a shallow, predictable, lifeless movie about a girl, her best friend, and her best friend’s brother. It tells the laziest possible story it could given the circumstances, does things exactly how you’ll expect if you’ve ever seen a romantic comedy before, and contains more filler than content. It’s not funny, insightful, entertaining, or anything more than something that generates noise in the background while you do laundry, much like many Netflix Originals. [Read Full Review]"
|80 T9||Tully (2018) - May 06, 2018
"I hope we get more movies directed by Jason Reitman, written by Diablo Cody, and starring Charlize Theron. I know we’ve only had two films from this trio, but they’ve both been really solid, and Tully is even better than the first outing. It’s a deep, unglamorous portrayal of parenting, aging, and marriage. Cody’s writing keeps getting better, Reitman is almost always a solid director, and Theron adds another fantastic performance to a really long list of them. Tully is great. [Read Full Review]"
|10 T1||Alex & The List (2018) - May 05, 2018
"Alex & The List is a movie that takes almost two hours to say what most people could figure out from just reading its description or watching its trailer. It’s a “romantic comedy” without any romance or laughs, has two leads with little tangible chemistry, and needs a lot of trimming of repetitive scenes. Its premise might have fit as an episode of a 30-minute sitcom that’s already been on the air for a couple of seasons but as a standalone movie that runs for almost two hours, it doesn [Read Full Review]"
|50 T5||Anon (2018) - May 04, 2018
"Anon is an interesting movie for 2/3 of its running time before suddenly falling off a cliff when it needs to start reaching its conclusion. It becomes a disappointment in the way that it gives us this creative world and doesn’t do much with it. There’s little payoff—the only thing we get is a conclusion to its main plot, which is one of its least interesting parts. Much like at least a couple of other Andrew Niccol movies, it has a great idea that never reaches its potential. [Read Full Review]"
|0 T1||Supercon (2018) - Apr 28, 2018
"Supercon is a movie that’s painful to watch. It lacks laughs, insights, plot, characters, purpose, acting, cinematography, editing, themes, joy, entertainment—sorry, where was I going with this? Oh yeah. It’s awful from start to finish. You can do better, movie industry. And so can you, people at home. This is a reminder that, even if a movie has actors you recognize and an on-paper plot that sounds good, it doesn’t mean it’s any good. Supercon is a cynical and joyless experience.
