Rampage Review

Just a few weeks after gargantuan aliens and cyborgs squared off in Pacific Rim: Uprising, massive apes and crocodiles crashed into theaters last weekend in Brad Peyton’s Rampage.

A Quiet Place Review

Cinema’s latest horror hit might be distinguished by its bouts of prolonged silence, but this scare fest is anything but a snoozer.

Ready Player One Review

Ferdinand Review

It’s only fitting that a year characterized by meager animation releases is capped off with a film that is only minimally acceptable. Ignoring extreme exceptions such as Coco or The Emoji Movie, 2017’s CG offerings have relegated to the stale middle ground of the likes of Cars 3 and Despicable Me 3. Set as bold...
