Geostorm

You can see how this intentionally could have been fun. Instead, Geostorm is the sort of movie that's only worth making fun of...


Only the Brave

Only the Brave serves as a tribute to their sacrifice in the way it respects them as ordinary men who happened to do extraordinary work.


The Snowman

It all makes sense if one ignores all of the diversions, but doing that makes The Snowman considerably shorter. That's probably a good thing.


Goodbye Christopher Robin

For those who enjoy having their pleasant childhood memories smashed, here's Goodbye Christopher Robin...


Breathe

Serkis doesn't present it with the kind of phony sentimentality that one might expect from the phrase "inspirational story."


Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton

The line between dedication and addiction is a thin one, and ... that line is even thinner for the surfer who's the subject of this involving documentary.


Leatherface

Leatherface may have the right name and tool, but the movie is wrong in practically every other way.


Jungle

Jungle attempts to dig into the inner life of its protagonist ... It doesn't succeed...


Absurd Accident

It's the debut of writer/director Li Yuhe, who overdoes some of the film's stylistic trappings but clearly possesses a knack for comic timing and revelation.


Killing Gunther

[A]t least one can watch the movie to see evidence that everyone here is having a good time ... Where's our good time?


Happy Death Day

[Screenwriter Scott Lobdell] finds ways of evolving the simplistic gimmick into something more.


The Foreigner

The Foreigner gives us a new look at Chan, which is worth something.
