This low-budget superhero movie looks good on the outside, but is mostly hot air when it comes to its story and characters.
Boasting a mix of frenzied thrills and social commentary, 'Train to Busan' is very much alive on arrival.
Boasting a star-studded cast, a dark and intriguing plot, and a director-actor brother duo, "Gringo" starts off with a promising set-up only to lose its steam as the film progresses, leaving a bad aftertaste.
A bizarre, complex, and provocative alien film that is more visually stunning than gory and violent as others before it, "Annihilation" explores deeper and darker themes than just our natural responses to otherness.
Overly ambitious in presenting too many perspectives, the film lacks a clear direction for both the characters and the audience, wasting a promising opening and convincing performances.
"The Cured" is a dark and depressing zombie film about guilt and politics, presented in rather obvious metaphors that are hyper-relevant in the current times of divisive ideologies.
Stunning visuals, astounding scores, and flawless performances can’t compensate for an overly ambitious film trying to mix a love story with terrorism and oceanography.
Even with its funny cast, 'Masterminds' is middling rather than brilliant, passing up incisive social commentary for lazy humour. We will admit to laughing more than a few times, though.
Sometimes loveable and sometimes insufferable, the uneven "Carrie Pilby" is a lot like its idiosyncratic title character.
'Gifted' is a slickly packaged heartstring-plucker that features sincere performances and moving moments, even if it falls short of brilliance.
A rousing, white-knuckle tale of the scrappy underdogs vs. big bad military forces, there’s a bit too much going on in Railroad Tigers to keep track of but it’s plenty of fun.
Ewan McGregor shines in his dual role, but Last Days in the Desert’s loose structure and lack of narrative drive keep its audience at a distance.
