The Grinch

The movie does too much polishing—adding so much that it all but eliminates the charm of Seuss' story.


Overlord is absurd, but it's fairly entertaining, too.

The Girl in the Spider's Web

The result is a movie that feels more like an homage to its predecessors than a genuine sequel or a self-contained story.

Here and Now

As accurate as this portrayal of avoidance might be, it doesn't amount to much in terms of sympathizing with or understanding who Vivienne is and what she's experiencing.

Outlaw King

The first scene/shot ends, and so, too, does the movie's attempt to do anything inventive with its tale of history.

El Ángel

The reason El Ángel is so simultaneously fascinating and terrifying is that it communicates his thinking so effectively.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Save for the music, there's nothing authentic about it.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

We've seen so many of our simple fantasy stories transformed into tales of political intrigue and ferocious battles that it has grown tiresome.


It attempts to expand upon its predecessor with underwhelming results.
