Perfect 83 Points 2017

I prefer a comedy after a bad day. Logan ain’t no comedy, but it sure as hell was balm for a bad day. More Johnny Cash than Johnny Storm, it’s the first Country comik movie, yet returns to true X-Men in the end.

Marvel, wow. Keep on keeping on with one riveting, arousing blockbuster after an…

Perfect 66 Points 2021

Third time’s another charm for the Spider-Man Home team. Or would that be the eighth time? It is a three series climax, a #ClimaxCubed. Marvel pulls it off — at a level previously seen only by The Avengers.

This is ultimate OG Marve…

Children Of Men
Really Great 83 Points 2006

A compelling concept, exceedingly well produced, makes for a grimly terrific movie. Dystopian fantasies like this – What if people could no longer procreate? – provide a rich canvas for filmmakers to project their political predilections, here of a class struggle triggered by the procreation cri…

A Quiet Place
Really Great 83 Points 2018

A Quiet Place is a primo horror movie for non-horror fans, such as John Krasinski & Emily Blunt. He wrote, directed and starred in this 90-minute masterpiece. She “only” stars in it, meaning he directed his real-life wife in the movie’s cruel crucible of silence. Interesting choice for a couple…

Run Hide Fight
Really Great 66 Points 2020

Biden voters won’t like Run Hide Fight, a movie about the Trump half of the country. Folks in Trump country eschew victimology. The left obsesses on it. We celebrate lone heroes doing what needs done.

Isabel May as Zoe Hull is a hero who does all that and more when her high school gets attac…

Top Gun: Maverick
Great 66 Points 2022

Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick succeeds spectacularly in four interconnected ways: as big screen blockbuster, sexy romp, thrill ride and patriotic paean. That it arrives nearly four decades after its origin movie matters not a whit. This long aborning sequel stands on its own. Hell, it builds o…

Pacific Rim
Very Good 88 Points 2013

The matchless mind of Guillermo del Toro comes through on his biggest canvas yet. His Pacific Rim is perfectly attuned to the neural frequencies of 13 year-old males. Yield to it, be one with it, drift inside its richly envisioned adolescent outlook, and the movie is a near continuous tickle….

Very Good 66 Points 2021

Second-tier Marvel is first-class entertainment in the form of the 2021 Venom: Let There Be Carnage, especially given Tom Hardy being directed by Andy Serkis. The legendary Serkis knows his way around tangible superego characters, having been Gollum in Lord of the Rings….

Good 66 Points 2019

The stars are the thing in Hobbs & Shaw, an amiably over-the-top ultra-action comedy that’s more charismatic than funny. The Rock, Jason Statham, Idris Elba and Dame Helen Mirren don’t come cheap. Good thing they’re worthy of the millions they received, since the script is third rate at best. …

Good 66 Points 2022

Vengeance isn’t original. Hell, it’s the eighth movie titled Vengeance. Nor is it LOL funny, other than maybe that bit about Texas football. But it is interesting and of-the-moment and almost kind-hearted. That’s enough to make an expensive trip to the multiplex worthwhile. B. J. Novak’s pass…
