Reviews: xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: Watching xXx: Return Of Xander Cage mimics the effect of mainlining a Red Bull/Jolt Cola concoction while you skydive off the Empire State Building with only a handkerchief for a parachute. Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Nguyen Le @ The Script Lab Excerpt: … not nearly as “dope” as it thinks it is.  Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See Excerpt: Nonsense garbage, but the most entertaining nonsense garbage I’ve witnessed in years. Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog Kristy Puchko […]

Reviews: Wind River (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice Excerpt: Powerful crime thriller with fresh insights into grief and how to be a good steward of one’s pain. Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Nguyen Le @ InSession Film Excerpt: Sheridan’s work cinematically addresses one of the coldest crimes to have ever been committed (and is still happening) on this star-spangled soil.

Reviews: War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice Excerpt: The third in a series of sci-fi epics that surges with an unflinching focus on spiritual matters. Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish] Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: While War for the Planet of the Apes’s third act is a bit hairy, the sequel helps cement the franchise as one of the more exciting mainstream properties worth watching.

Reviews: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish] Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets is a fantasy adventure that’s nowhere near as adventurous or fantastical as it should be. Unless starbursts and Cara Delevingne sticking her head up a memory-reading jellyfish’s butt is enough to impress? Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Nguyen Le @ The Critical Critics Excerpt: Or pop in “The Fifth Element” again. Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I […]

Reviews: Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish] Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: Cut out every scene that doesn’t involve Cogman and Anthony Hopkins. That’s the only way I’d even watch the opening credits of Transformers: The Last Knight again. Nguyen Le @ InSession Film Excerpt: Also, what is aspect ratio, anyway? – the film asks. Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See Excerpt: The cinematic equivalent of a crowd chanting “U-S-A, U-S-A!” Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe Excerpt: Fact: Transformers: The Last Knight is its franchise’s most entertaining entry. […]

Reviews: Tragedy Girls (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: Tragedy Girls is a wicked, womanly triumph. Hearts and smiley faces float from smartphones not only to reflect social media interactions, but to mirror our own approval of Tyler MacIntyre’s suburban gorefest. James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See Excerpt: Biting, wicked, and deceptively earnest. Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage Excerpt: The whole becomes a wide-open venue for heightened caricatures and homage with enough Valley Girl snark and reality-TV charisma to let a few […]

Reviews: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice Excerpt: One of the best films of the year with its sturdy depiction of the grace that accompanies turning an enemy into a friend. Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish] James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See Excerpt: Brutally flawed and devastatingly human. Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe Excerpt: McDonagh draws the authentic, angry response […]

Reviews: Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish] Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: Thor: Ragnarok may be a better comedy than epic action adventure, but it certainly makes us fall even more in love with the “Cosmic Marvel” universe. Because, you know, “Jeff Goldblum in a golden space robe.” Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Nguyen Le @ InSession Film Excerpt: … everyone is having absolute fun bouncing off each other that nearly nothing matters. Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight Simon Miraudo @ Student […]

Reviews: Thelma (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice Excerpt: Mesmerizing drama about a female college student struggling with sexual repression and wounds afflicted on her soul. Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: Thelma doesn’t exactly tell a unique story, but Joachim Trier’s vision is so strong you’ll barely even notice. [New] | Federico Furzan @ El Otro Cine [Spanish] Excerpt: Carrie en el siglo XXI, o una definitiva exploración a la sexualidad. Poco importa. Thelma es una hermosa sinfonía de género. Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Jared […]
