Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has an interesting grip to its story. As a whole, it feels fake, redundant, and has way too many unnecessary parts. But singly, there are some cool moments and action set pieces which earn entertain... Read the full review »

Get Out is a totally trail blazing accomplishment in filmmaking. Full of outstanding performances from a talented cast, a perfectly-paced screenplay, and a brilliant direction from Jordan Peele. The scares hit the psychological and emotional leve... Read the full review »

John Wick: Chapter 2 is beautiful and violent with a lot of things it sets out to do. Maybe too much to a fault. Also, some cheesy dialogues come here and there, and the action scenes try too hard to imitate Kingsman: The Secret Service. While it'... Read the full review »

It's not that Baywatch is ridiculous. It's just that it's not too ridiculous for its own good. Looks cheap, raunchy, and dull in all aspects, though entertaining in some parts. It's really the chemistry of this gang that makes them feel like a tru... Read the full review »

The Founder starts off with a strong first half, but later on loses a bit of its steam. But perhaps most importantly, the complex personality of this iconic "creator" as both an aspiring, charming guy and a ruthless cheater is perfectly realized b... Read the full review »

Lemon (2017)

Lemon (2017)

3 / 10
Lemon is overly pessimistic, poorly mixed, and awkwardly driven by its tongue-in-cheek humor. Some of its style may come familiar to Wes Anderson's quirky elements, but its oddness falls short of feeling and character. Read the full review »

It completely feels like a hybrid of coming-of-age, suspense, romance and heist, that we've all seen from movies that has come before. Read the full review »

A delightful look on a very depressing story. Lily Collins proves here that she can still be loveable in a very unlikeable role. Read the full review »

Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland show us that whatever their characters are (even the most one-dimensional and boring ones), they still manage to be charismatic film stars and vehicles for world-class performances. Read the full review »

Handled by posh performances from Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson, and fiendishly driven by a psychologically-compelling story at its core, Unforgettable is pure diabolical with a lot of romance. Read the full review »

Child's Play works on both the suspenseful and dramatic levels of the horror genre with an effectively creepy first act that soon turns into a cheap investigation film. Fortunately, the story comes back for a thrilling finale. Read the full review »

Not gonna lie, but I was at the edge of my seat the whole time, thanks to Laura Dern's profound and exceptional performance, and a haunting dramatic story that would stay in our minds in the years to come. Read the full review »

Unfortunately, as with a film starring A-list actors whom are all worth-mentioning, Collide is a disappointing collision of romantic drama and crime-action that may sometimes get stuck within its tonal silliness. Read the full review »

Colossal is a familiar indie dramedy dynamic, but its combination of science-fiction antics with a hysterical performance from Anne Hathaway makes it highly-original and refreshing to watch. Read the full review »

In a world where Mission: Impossible and Fast and Furious rule the action movies, xXx: Return of Xander Cage drops its supposed to be rollicking premise in favor of its dour foolishness. Read the full review »

The Lego Batman Movie is, above else, a crazy ride from start to finish. Sometimes it maybe too much of the messy and forgettable parts. But in comparison to DC's self-serious universe, this is certainly a breath of fresh air. Read the full review »
