DVD Reviews

Wind River

A half-step down from a masterpiece, this gripping neo-Western explores the themes of alienation and degradation.

Brigsby Bear

A weird, wonderful flick that is as emotionally engaging as it is hard to describe.

The Dark Tower

Savaged by critics and ignored by audiences, "The Dark Tower" is actually a bold, intriguing mix of cinematic ingredients.

War for the Planet of the Apes

"War for the Planet of the Apes" is the rare summer blockbuster that is smart and contemplative, bringing the revived franchise to a satisfying close.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

The latest iteration of the web-slinger has plenty of verve and energy, taking Spider-Man back to his angsty teen roots without rehashing mythology.

Baby Driver

Dizzy, fun and unexpectedly weighty, "Baby Driver" puts a groovy new spin on the tired heist genre.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

There's no reason for a fifth "Pirates" movie to exist, but it's passably entertaining as long as you're willing to pull up oars on your brain and coast.

The Mummy

I still like the idea of a cinematic franchise of movie monsters, but "The Mummy" gets Universal's "Dark Universe" off to an uncertain first(ish) step.
