Mother! is one-half of a solid thriller. Unfortunately, the second half turns it into a shallow, blunt, in-your-face wannabe "message" movie.
Alien Covenant is both a sequel to Prometheus (and the middle part of a trilogy) and a prequel to Alien. It does one of those things better than the other however...
Get ready to feel tense and uncomfortable for a lot of different reasons...
A Cure For Wellness is plagued by boring characters, a mystery you unravel long before the movie does and a plot that overstays its welcome by a good hour.
M. Night Shyamalan is back. It's not up to the caliber of his early work, but SPLIT will remind you why, for a time, he was considered the next great risktaker-storyteller.
Joyless, boring, and focused on all the wrong things, Assassins Creed did everything wrong and ruined the potential for what could have been a good film franchise.
Arrival brilliantly adapts the short story source material to create a compelling science fiction film that is both brainy and emotional. It's a must-see.
Don't Breathe succeeds thanks to a fresh premise and a perfectly realized screenplay that has enough surprises to keep you guessing till the very end. Must see.
Lights Out takes a simple concept and turns it into one of the best horror movies of the decade.
The ending may surprise you, for good or for ill, but the first 110 minutes are suspenseful and brilliant. Spoilers inside as we talk it out.

Spectre is a very good Bond film, but not a very great one. Come inside and let's talk it out.
This is the classic sort of movie that could have easily been made a generation prior, with Alfred Hitchcock directing Cary Grant from a screenplay by Truman Capote.
The only feeling I have is "it didn't really really suck." But the fact that this movie is at least "adequate" is a step in the right direction for Shyamalan.
