|15 1%||Left Behind (2014) - Sep 19, 2020
"The worst failure of Left Behind is not its direction, dialogue, acting, cinematography, or special effects. The worst failure of this movie is that there is literally no story here. Hyper-religious messages aside, the movie doesn't grok the concept of plot AT ALL, so we're just watching things not really happen or develop for nearly two hours. This movie really had the potential to be average if the story had half a brain."
|82 43%||Lost Girls (2020) - Sep 14, 2020
"Lost Girls is an intriguing and heartbreaking tale of serial murder. I only wish that there were more breadcrumbs left behind in this true story."
|54 9%||Jobs (2013) - Sep 13, 2020
"Jobs is an overly dramatic biopic that fails to depict Steve Jobs' personal journey in any meaningful way. It has its moments, but the storytelling here is poor, overall."
|27 3%||Running with the Devil (2019) - Aug 28, 2020
"In imitation of Tarantino/Guy Ritchie, Running with the Devil bores with cardboard characters, a recycled plot, and overall groan-worthy sensibilities. I wanted to care about everything that happened here, but I was never given a reason to."
|66 14%||Fracture (2007) - Aug 19, 2020
"Fracture takes an interesting premise and ultimately weaves a tale as daft as it is predictable."
|83 49%||Michael Clayton (2007) - Aug 15, 2020
"Michael Clayton is an engrossing crime thriller that is a thoroughly enjoyable, if predictable experience."
|85 66%||The Lincoln Lawyer (2011) - Aug 03, 2020
"The Lincoln Lawyer is an intense thriller of a law story, elevated by the personality of its screenplay and style of its direction. Its only shortcoming is not having an entirely elegant resolution, with a final act that noticeably stumbles."
|47 7%||Next (2007) - Jul 31, 2020
"Not only does Next grace us with an incredibly cheesy and unconvincing story, it shocks us with a baffling stupid conclusion which is insulting. The only thing carrying this film is a somewhat energetic premise."
|85 66%||Collateral (2004) - Jul 27, 2020
"Collateral is an exhilarating, adrenaline-fueled film and an all-day excursion with a hitman. Action fans that want something a little bit more refreshing - look no further."
|84 56%||Logan Lucky (2017) - Jul 27, 2020
"If there's anyone I would bet on being the director of a new, exceptionally inventive heist movie, it would be Steven Soderbergh. Logan Lucky delivers a surprisingly intricate chain of events from an unlikely crew, and it does so convincingly."
