Reviews: The Predator (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Caio Bogoni @ Cine Grandiose [Portuguese] Excerpt: Different from the previous entries, which is far from being a fatal issue in this new Predator film. [New] | Alex Brannan @ CineFiles Reviews [New] | Blake Crane @ Film Racket Excerpt: The Predator spends too much of its time hunting for ways to bring several uninteresting plot strings together and not nearly enough indulging in its throwback action swagger. [New] | Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum Excerpt: The film is a big, weird, sloppy mess, but it’s a fun mess, […]

Reviews: The Nun (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: [New] | Steve Biodrowski @ Hollywood Gothique Excerpt: The Nun is not much of a prequel, but it does provide more mindless fun than expected, especially when the scares are enhanced by the new immersive ScreenX format. Alex Brannan @ CineFiles Reviews Excerpt: Terror ensues. I guess. Andrea Chase @ Killer Movie Reviews Excerpt: To judge by the loud snoring exploding a few seats away from me, I was not the only one who found this lugubrious excrescence less than compelling. Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews Excerpt: The […]

Reviews: Slender Man (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Blake Crane @ Film Pulse Excerpt: Slender Man is exceedingly thin in plot, character, craft, expansion of its viral internet roots, and is most lightweight where it matters most. Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum Excerpt: The film certainly has more atmosphere and mood compared to other teen horror movies. However, under all those stylistic flourishes is just another junky teen horror movie complete with all the same drawbacks and none of the potential creativity. [New – 9/14/18] | Matt Donato @ Dread Central Excerpt: Crunchy Woodland Sound Effects, The Movie! […]

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: Wonder Woman (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish] Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered Excerpt: Wonder Woman has long been a character for little girls to idolize, but Patty Jenkins’ smashing success grants a forceful push towards gender equilibrium in the superhero movie world. JD Duran @ insessionfilm.com James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Mark Leeper @ Mark Leeper Excerpt: The script by is unusually introspective Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See Excerpt: Wonder […]

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. Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See Excerpt: A taut, cold mystery. Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com Excerpt: Sheridan isn’t one to pull […]

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. Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews Nguyen Le @ InSession Film Excerpt: As simians and Homo sapiens touch base with […]

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 […]
