B 100% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "Well, THAT was bonkers. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 26, 2018
B+ 100% Black Lightning: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "In a world that's falling apart at every level, true heroes need to stand up to protect people. Jefferson does just that, and he even has a tricked-out new Black Lightning suit. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 17, 2018
B- 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) "The Man Who Invented Christmas is mostly a story about overcoming writer's block. That sounds boring, and it surely would be unbearable if anyone but Stevens was in the role. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 21, 2017
B+ 77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) "Thank You For Service is ... successful at capturing the Iraq War's effects on American lives. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 26, 2017
B 62% The Foreigner (2017) "I'm not sure anyone has plans to turn this into a franchise, but I certainly want to see more from this Chan-aissance. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 13, 2017
A- 70% The Gifted: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "I've always suspected that a TV show would be a better fit for the X-Men than movies are. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 3, 2017
C 5% Flatliners (2017) "We live in an age of unnecessary remakes - but the new Flatliners movie, by Danish director Niels Arden Oplev, has the distinction of being perhaps the most unnecessary of them all. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 30, 2017
B+ 100% Broad City: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "Now in its fourth season, Broad City retains its sense of the real New York. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 25, 2017
C+ 54% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) "This mini-franchise may be running out of steam. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 20, 2017
B- 23% Disjointed: Parts 1 & 2 (TV, 2017-2018) "Though many of the show's jokes center around pot humor, there's also some depth. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Aug 27, 2017
54% Loaded: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "With hearty doses of British self-flagellation, Loaded wrings brilliant cringe comedy out of its unqualified characters and the wealth they've stupidly acquired. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 17, 2017
C+ 62% Sherlock: Season 4 Episode 3 "This season had its high points, but ended on a pretty lackluster note. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 17, 2017
B+ 93% Sherlock: Season 4 Episode 2 "Fans seemed divided on the season premiere last week, but I think this episode proves the fourth season of Sherlock is up to great things. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 17, 2017
A- 53% Sherlock: Season 4 Episode 1 "The great achievement of Sherlock is that despite the long breaks between new episodes, the show always returns with a bang. And this season 4 premiere was no different. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 16, 2017
C+ 7% Rings (2017) "Rings embodies a common problem of attempted franchise revivals: indecision about its intentions. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 3, 2017
C No Score Yet Becoming Warren Buffett (2017) "A great documentary needs some tension -- whether between the subjects, or between the subject and the director, or something else. Unfortunately, it's lacking here. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 30, 2017
C+ 31% Monster Trucks (2017) "After a long gestation period, Monster Trucks has finally hatched. And the final result is... rather unspectacular. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 11, 2017
B- 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) "It just so happens that a film of people acting awful to each other feels extra real in our chaotic, insane times. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 21, 2016
C 82% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) "Ouija: Origin of Evil is an interesting exercise in watching filmmakers try to mint a franchise out of basically nothing. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 20, 2016
C- 17% Crisis in Six Scenes: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "In addition to being quite boring, the series also fails to justify itself as a period piece. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 30, 2016
B 34% Masterminds (2016) "What Masterminds lacks in sharp one-liners it more than makes up for in ridiculous slapstick. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 30, 2016
A 94% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) "After setting up chess pieces all season long, this episode finally brought together the season's two disparate strands: Ghost Rider's hellish vengeance spree and AIDA's toying with artificial life. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 21, 2016
C+ 0% The Disappointments Room (2016) "There simply aren't enough scares to build tension throughout. Most of the film is just Beckinsale walking around looking worried. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 9, 2016
B+ 87% Don't Breathe (2016) "Alvarez appears to have consciously toned down the gore from his blood-saturated Evil Dead remake, trusting unnerving visuals and foreshadowing what terrors are about to unfold. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Aug 25, 2016
C+ 13% Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV (2016) "Instead of trying to adapt the video game experience into a film format, Kingsglaive transforms the movie-going experience into something familiar to video game fans. It's essentially a really long cutscene. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Aug 18, 2016
B- 76% Lights Out (2016) "Like the most enjoyable horror movies, Lights Out is almost a physical experience, carrying viewers from stress and terror to even some tension-breaking hilarity. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 21, 2016
B- 5% The Do-Over (2016) "The plot threads can be a little hard to follow ... but Sandler and Spade's partnership gives the whole enterprise enough emotional grounding to make up for it. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 27, 2016
B+ 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) "This reworking of the 1969 erotic thriller La Piscine beautifully explores the difficulties of communication. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 12, 2016
B 50% Holidays (2016) "Some of the films are haunting, some of them more macabre, but all of them play with holiday symbolism in way that will make viewers rethink a lot of their favorite celebrations. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 22, 2016
C 2% Nina (2016) "Nina is a by-the-numbers musical biopic riddled with every conceivable cliché about "the tortured artist." " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 19, 2016
C- 46% The Young Messiah (2016) "The Young Messiah struggles to hold its audience's attention. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 14, 2016
B+ 37% The Other Side of the Door (2016) "Like all the best horror, The Other Side of the Door is concerned not just with what freaks us out on a gut level, but the deeply-repressed anxieties that truly terrify us. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 4, 2016
C- 25% London Has Fallen (2016) "By casting its villain as a suspiciously ISIS-like Middle Eastern terrorist network, London Has Fallen makes itself into a political movie-but its politics are heinous. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 2, 2016
B- 52% Risen (2016) "Risen is more entertaining than Bible-adjacent stories are usually allowed to be. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 18, 2016
B 61% Race (2016) "The title is on-the-nose but rather fitting for the story of Jesse Owens, the black track-and-field athlete who stunned the world by winning four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics in Adolf Hitler's Berlin ... " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 18, 2016
C+ 7% Fifty Shades of Black (2016) "Wayans is ... incapable of limiting himself to parodying one movie at a time, tossing in riffs on Whiplash, Magic Mike, and Zero Dark Thirty to varying degrees of success. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 31, 2016
B 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "Just complicated enough to reward steady viewers and just simple enough for parent escorts to enjoy without much prior knowledge. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 27, 2016
C 28% The Boy (2016) "[It] aims to set itself squarely in the fictional canon of Chucky and its brethren, but it ends up trying to do so much that it forgets to scare us. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 25, 2016
C+ 9% The Forest (2016) "Ambiguity is good in a horror movie, but with this many plot elements elbowing each other for room, none of them achieve enough clarity to be properly terrifying. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 8, 2016
A- 81% Labyrinth Of Lies (2015) "Fehling gives a commanding physical performance as he transitions from ambition to despair to, finally, resolve. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 25, 2015
B 90% Meru (2015) "In lieu of Oscar-grabby performances, there are climbers talking, raw and intense, about the tragedies they've weathered on their way to accomplishing something no one else has. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Aug 13, 2015
C- 75% Welcome To New York (2015) "Spends too much time bogged down in its more decadent scenes to spark any new insights. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
