|49 51%||Ice Station Zebra (1968) - Aug 02, 2020
"There is a lot of this is predictable and sometimes the atmosphere of the situation nosedives into boredom but the talented cast and tight confines of the environment make Ice Station Zebra a worthy attempt at a cold-weather thriller."
|82 85%||Knives Out (2019) - Aug 02, 2020
"One part dime-store mystery, one part dysfunctional family, half a part political commentary, and a mounding pile of Daniel Craig hamming it up makes Knives Out a great time and a welcome return to form for Rian Johnson."
|74 75%||Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) - Jul 31, 2020
"Although it plays very loose with the real historical events, Birdman of Alcatraz is a quite touching tale of one man's attempted rehabilitation through his love of birds. Burt Lancaster plays an extremely fictionalized version of a hardened criminal but he brings a lot of humanity to the role and really carries the film."
|25 22%||Olympus Has Fallen (2013) - Jul 22, 2020
"Take a look at this poster for 15 seconds and imagine the most bland, soulless, and cliched action flick and you've just seen Olympus Has Fallen. Between the two versions of this movie that were released in 2013, Emmerich's White House Down is the better watch."
|33 32%||White House Down (2013) - Jul 22, 2020
"White House Down is more entertaining than it's 2013 carbon-copy Olympus Has Fallen but I suspect that it only works because Roland Emmerich has no clue of this film's, and by extension his, sheer and utter stupidity."
|65 66%||The Music Man (1962) - Jul 05, 2020
"Cute, light-hearted, and featuring some spectacular show-tunes, The Music Man is one of those Golden Age Hollywood films that throws everything and the kitchen sink and works just well enough to be someone's favorite."
|80 83%||Jessica Jones (2015) - Jul 02, 2020
"Season 1 of Jessica Jones is great. I think I genuinely enjoyed it more than all but the very best 3-4 films in the MCU. Tennant and Ritter continue the run of Marvel casting exactly the right people for the role. Jessica Jones also has actual, tangible themes which both play into superpowers and reality in shocking ways."
|69 70%||The Jerk (1979) - Jul 02, 2020
"The Jerk never lives up to it's insanely funny first moments but it never gets truly boring or tiring. Steve Martin doesn't care about having the most high-brow material in the script. Not that it matters because he can elevate something as inherently stupid as The Jerk to not just be funny but hilarious."
|39 40%||The Wolverine (2013) - Jul 01, 2020
"The Wolverine isn't the dumpster fire that X-Men Origins is but there really isn't anything truly redeeming about it other than Hugh Jackman and the fact that it tries to reconcile the other dumpster fire that is X-Men 3. Japan isn't a bad setting for a Wolverine movie either."
|40 41%||Captain Marvel (2019) - Jun 30, 2020
"I don't think I like Captain Marvel. It reintroduces problems that Kevin Feige and co. had solved years ago. I was never sure of the tone, never convinced by Brie Larson, and the script is confused because almost every plot, character, or universe development is either directly forecasted by the film itself or from knowledge of the greater MCU. Sam Jackson is about the only thing I can say I fully enjoyed."
