C+

Replicas (Nachmanoff) [* Not bad for a B-movie with an A-list star (ugh, that CGI is tacky though) ... also odd for a mainstream movie to flirt with atheism quite like this (not a position I'd ever agree with, but I like hearing all sides of an argument).]


C



C-

Velvet Buzzsaw (Gilroy) [* Doesn't work as satire (the art world is too easy to go after), doesn't work as horror, doesn't work as black comedy. I would have totally put my arm in that derivative Chicago Bean rip-off (before Toni, of course).]
High Flying Bird (Soderbergh) [* Those poor, poor professional athletes deprived of all their money ... I could break down and just cry, but I'll try to compose myself (it also has no sense of urgency about it). Steven-the-Technician is good at bringing the most out of an iPhone, so hooray for that.]


D+



D

Polar (Ã…kerlund) [* Some half-baked adolescent fantasy of Cool Dudes With Guns, but Mads is fantastic, saving it from Jonas' ... "garish" tendencies.]
Fyre (Smith) [* Morons, all of you. (Also: can we include the word "influencer" in the list of words and phrases no one should ever use again like "bae," "it's lit" and "clap back"?)]


D-

IO (Helpert) [* Wait ... is this trying to be ... an arthouse movie? Oh come now.]


F

The Last Laugh (Pritikin) [* I guess now's the time to say it: I never found Chevy Chase funny.]
