Prey Title Image
M.C. Myers
Prey expresses a strong period aesthetic powered by fresh performances but relies on a screenplay that misplaces its series' core values.
The Tragedy of Macbeth
M.C. Myers
This well-endowed Macbeth strives for greatness without the stomach for it. Stylized visuals can't cover for all the meaning it misses.
Zack Snyder's Justice League
M.C. Myers
Zack Snyder's Justice League delivers on the promise to release every second of footage shot for its original cut, for better and not much better.
The House
M.C. Myers
The House shimmers with collective angst, a nightmare only stop-motion could make. So why does it make me feel so happy?
Black Widow
M.C. Myers
Black Widow approaches genuine dramatic insight in parts but fails to make its title character more interesting than the performance is by default.
Everything Everywhere All at Once
M.C. Myers
Despite triumphant performances and high ambitions, Everything Everywhere All at Once hopes to be so well-understood that it overexplains its triumphs away.
Prometheus Michael Fassbender
M.C. Myers
The much-maligned Prometheus hides an epic sci-fi fable despite failing to satisfy its own ambitions. Fassbender is genre-defining.
Godzilla King of the Monsters
M.C. Myers
Godzilla: King of the Monsters avoids the essence of its brand almost as aggressively as it avoids working on its script.
M.C. Myers
Interstellar's brilliant technical filmmaking hinges on a story thwarted by melodrama. Its head is full of ideas, but its heart is empty.
Let Me In
M.C. Myers
Let Me In is an arousing remake that makes a cautionary tale more streamlined, romantic, and cathartic, three things it probably never intended to be.
Exorcist II Linda Blair
M.C. Myers
Despite its meandering awkwardness, one of the most hated horror films of all time features a compelling creative vision and the visuals of an epic.
Dave Bautista Army of the Dead
M.C. Myers
Army of the Dead's ruthless devotion to plagiarization is its most passionate aspect. Less effort was never spent on a film so casually praised.
