7.8/10 No Score Yet Of Dogs and Men (2016) Of Dogs and Men may make you cry and it will certainly make you mad, but more importantly than anything else, it shows you how to make a change.‐ Next Projection

8.3/10 No Score Yet Jeff Lowe's Metanoia (2014) Jeff Lowe's Metanoia is the type of documentary that captivates your eyes and ears in the most expected of ways but wins over your heart in one that is far more surprising. ‐ Next Projection

8.6/10 88% The Big Short (2015) McKay takes his gift for comedy and weaves it into drama like a rich tapestry. ‐ Next Projection

5/10 59% Concussion (2015) Concussion had to be good, it had to scare us, and it should have scared the NFL. Instead it just sits there idly in a bed of clichés and manufactured tension. ‐ Next Projection

7/10 No Score Yet The Slippers (2016) What is impressive about Morgan White's direction is how the many stories are gently folded in, winning the viewer over bit by bit. ‐ Next Projection

8.6/10 86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) The comedy comes from a place of reality and even when said reality is heightened, Linklater does it in a way that rolls off your back.‐ Next Projection

4/10 47% Spaceship (2016) Taylor seems bored by his own story and quickly introduces secondary and tertiary characters of diminishing importance to jolt a line that was doing just fine on its own. ‐ Next Projection

7.3/10 56% Pet (2016) The tension ratchets up spectacularly and your blood pressure rises in the anticipation of what may lie behind the next corner. ‐ Next Projection

5.6/10 80% Thank You, Del: The Story of the Del Close Marathon (2015) The film is endlessly scattered, hopping along from subject to subject as it feels the audience becoming bored and pulling away. ‐ Next Projection

5.9/10 100% Loev (2015) Saria's penchant for generating his own faux conflict that arises out of service to the story rather than the characters is his ultimate downfall. ‐ Next Projection

7.7/10 93% Little Sister (2016) Add to the well written screenplay a cast that seems catered to this cadence and the result is a family that is almost too familiar for comfort.‐ Next Projection

9.6/10 83% Midnight Special (2016) The story is wonderfully detailed, entertaining, mysterious, and endlessly thrilling. ‐ Next Projection

9/10 53% Demolition (2016) It is a role that requires an actor that does more than what is on the page. Something that Gyllenhaal accomplishes spectacularly.‐ Next Projection

8.2/10 73% American Fable (2017) First time feature writer-director Anne Hamilton is staking her claim, this is her style, and you will do right to take notice.‐ Next Projection

9.4/10 100% Orange Sunshine (2016) Kirkley doesn't necessarily want you to feel for his subjects but instead wants you to feel like you are one of them. It is that inclusivity that makes the emotional punches that are eventually unleashed land so resoundingly.‐ Next Projection

9.4/10 89% Hush (2016) I no longer trust a sliding glass door at night.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
7.2/10 100% I Am the Blues (2015) It is as if as each musician tells his tale and strums his guitar that everything is ok again. The music is their release and all of the sadness comes out in the songs.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
5/10 73% Headshot (2017) It was as if I opened a puzzle only to find that the majority of the items within the box didn't belong. How do you get a lint covered gummy bear, a harmonica, three bullets, and a corner puzzle piece to fit together? You don't.‐ Next Projection

7.4/10 94% Prevenge (2017) The writing is authentic even when it is ridiculous, but what really shines through is Lowe's dark sense of humor. ‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
4.5/10 43% Song to Song (2017) Outside of the more standard Malick-isms, Song to Song also has a troubling relationship with women, making their role secondary to a man's and establishing a mood of objectification. ‐ Next Projection

3.1/10 67% The Honor Farm (2017) It's like overhearing a 17-year-old rail on about the complexities of life, having read an introductory book on philosophy but never ventured out of his suburb. ‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
8.4/10 75% Small Town Crime (2018) Its twists and turns toy with your emotions and despite its largely familiar story conventions, it never comes across as predictable. ‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
9.2/10 78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Theron takes to the fight choreography like a violent fish to bloody water. She is exactingly brutal and nearly balletic in her execution. ‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
6/10 69% Free Fire (2017) The problem with Free Fire is that it just doesn't have much more going on in outside of what you see in the trailer.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
6.2/10 67% DRIB (2017) DRIB is just trying too hard to be too many things, never managing to do any of them all that well.‐ Next Projection

5.1/10 45% Bokeh (2017) This issue of character development is largely what holds the film back. Without understanding what makes this couple tick, we are left voyeurs in a world that we cannot understand. ‐ Next Projection

7.5/10 85% It (2017) It is much like walking through a haunted house. Sure, you were scared here and there, but the feeling was fleeting and not a whole lot different from that last haunted house.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
7.5/10 95% A Quiet Place (2018) The mediocre nature of the film's actual scares betray what is mostly a thrilling film. ‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
9/10 89% American Animals (2018) It is a popcorn movie dripping with arthouse flair, and populated with intriguing and complex characters, be they real or performed.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
6.5/10 93% After Everything (Shotgun) (2018) Despite its many charms, Shotgun never fully feels like something to care about. It is enjoyable, but only passably.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
8.4/10 89% The Breaker Upperers (2018) If we have the good sense we will throw our money at writer-director-stars Madeleine Sami and Jackie van Beek, because they certainly have a whole lot more to say.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
3/10 46% Elizabeth Harvest (2018) At times, Elizabeth Harvest appears to even confuse itself, feeling as if the film didn't have a script as much as an idea that continued to be brainstormed until the film was wrapped. ‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
5.2/10 60% The New Romantic (2018) Perhaps more egregious than its familiar plot and waste of up-and-comer Jessica Barden is that despite its title, there is nothing "new" or "romantic" about The New Romantic.‐ Next Projection
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
9.5/10 93% Blindspotting (2018) The combination of the rhythmic script, the bumping soundtrack, and the stylish direction recall the early work of Spike Lee. ‐ Next Projection

6/10 89% 6 Balloons (2018) Were 6 Balloons to be nothing more than an actor's showcase, it would work, unfortunately the rest of its pieces just never quite come together.‐ Next Projection

1.5/5 22% Step Sisters (2018) Calling the jokes lazy feels like I'm giving them too much credit.‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
3.5/5 72% Hostiles (2018) So is the struggle of seeing a Scott Cooper film. The director exhibits so much raw potential in his filmmaking, walking up to the line of greatness without being able to take that final step. ‐ Edge Media Network

3/5 89% Flesh and Blood (2017) In a film full of people basically playing themselves it is Webber, likely playing a character farthest from himself, that makes the film worthwhile. ‐ Edge Media Network

3/5 92% Barracuda (2017) Where the script leaves the character of Merle a shell, Tolman picks up the slack in her subtle and often heartbreaking performance. ‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
2.5/5 46% Everything, Everything (2017) ...it carries this unearned gravity that moments that should tug on your heartstrings leave you groaning in annoyance.‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
4/5 90% Blue Jay (2016) In the case of Paulson, it is a performance positively overflowing with subtlety, communicating more in small moments than Duplass manages with even the most grandiose of speeches. ‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
3.5/5 80% Audrie & Daisy (2016) Cohen and Shenk refuse to allow the audience to sit in ignorance, not only revealing the horrid heart of a backwards societal view of rape but allowing that idiocy to speak for itself. ‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
3/5 60% Carnage Park (2016) Its gore is admirably done, and thankfully the effects are practical, but they don't add to the proceedings, delivered with more of a shrug than a purpose. ‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
4/5 78% Keanu (2016) The action is intense, the jokes frequent, and the kitten is almost shockingly adorable. ‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
4/5 83% Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016) Sweet, funny, strange, and heartfelt, it is an outright great film that your friends will likely hate you for recommending.‐ Edge Media Network
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2018
2.5/5 64% The Greasy Strangler (2016) It is less a film and more the terrifying fever dream of a stressed out stray dog living in a failing thrift store.‐ Edge Media Network
