  • A Cure for Wellness Review

  • Fist Fight Review

    Fist Fight Review

    Fist Fight may be as slight as a half-hour sitcom comedy, but enough of its R-Rated jokes hit their target to sustain the movie’s brisk runtime.

  • Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Review

    Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Review

    The Final Chapter meets the standard for mindless thrills set by the previous Resident Evil films, ending the series on more of a shrug than a bang.
