14% Desperados (2020) The cast does what it can with an awful script spiked with floundering attempts at politically incorrect comedy, but it's like trying to start a car without any keys, or a steering column, or an engine.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020

83% Crawl (2019) Ridiculous but effective, and just tense and plausible enough to invoke the demon of claustrophobia and our primordial fear of being munched and digested to death. ‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2020
77% Buffaloed (2020) Deploys some obvious jokes and a predictable twist, but works its way to a solid punchline that makes living in post-capitalist times almost funny.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2020
70% 7500 (2020) The film is too visceral and fiercely immediate for much subtext.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2020
36% The Night Clerk (2020) The Night Clerk is a big, flat dud.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2020

Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2020
