War for the Planet of the Apes 2
A movie that tries desperately to appear "meaningful" and "profound" and "relevant," but ends up falling flat on its face. For a film with so much attention to...

Sleepaway Camp 3.5

I already knew "the twist," but that did little to lesson my viewing experience. This is a really well-done slasher--not as good as The Burning, but far better than Friday the...
