3.5/10 27% The Kissing Booth 2 (2020) A third installment has already been filmed so we can expect another round of romantic hi-jinks and the not at all contrived appearance of the kissing booth. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 93% Yes, God, Yes (2020) Like its virginal character, this just left me wanting a little more.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 73% The Rental (2020) Could just as easily been titled 'So, a Slasher Horror Crashed My Indie Relationship Drama.'‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 18% Fatal Affair (2020) One of those movies you'll constantly find yourself yelling at the screen in disbelief. And there's plenty of eye-rolling moments of insanity here.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 87% Volition (2020) An overly ambitious film that largely manages to meet its lofty goals despite a shaky foundation.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

8/10 81% The Old Guard (2020) Shows a ton of potential, which will be fully realized in subsequent installments. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

2/10 20% Browse (2020) Browse feels like glimpsing through a problematic story with little context as to why you should care let alone watch it. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

10/10 98% Hamilton (2020) It really couldn't be as special as everyone made it out to be, right? Wrong. It surpasses the hype and becomes the event of 2020 you can just sit back and enjoy at home.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 47% My Spy (2020) Bautista proves he can handle the genre and could shine provided he gets better material that remembers its target audience and is actually funny.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

3/10 41% You Should Have Left (2020) The kind of thriller that even a bored M. Night Shyamalan would call uninspired and predictable. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2020
9/10 99% Miss Juneteenth (2020) A great exploration of the often complex black mother/daughter bond and the pressures of surpassing the accomplishments of the previous generation. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

5/10 44% I Am Vengeance: Retaliation (2020) For audiences strictly looking for some stellar fight scenes I Am Vengeance: Retaliation might be worth a watch. Otherwise you can safely skip this one.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 0% WrestleMassacre (2020) A badly booked horror film that takes the final 15 minutes before it becomes the insane over the top wrestling horror extravaganza it should have been all along. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 76% Followed (2020) A high quality production featuring better than expected performances and an abundance of creepy scares to keep viewers on edge. Terrific surprise for thriller fans.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 92% Da 5 Bloods (2020) While BlacKkKlansman felt like a surgical sniper shot on racism, this is more of a bombardment. It's not as clean or effective, but gets Lee's point across. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 73% The King of Staten Island (2020) About awakenings on a lot of levels and it's that sense of new beginnings and a reason to hope again that makes this one of my favorite films of the year.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

2/10 No Score Yet Ouija Shark (2020) A goofy killer shark movie that lacks much bite, humor or entertainment, Ouija Shark is hardly a jagged little thrill. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2020
3/10 69% The High Note (2020) A well-acted and well-meaning film that's dinged by a flat tone-deaf turn of events.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 27, 2020
9.5/10 92% The Invisible Man (2020) Proves an old classic can get dusted off to be a completely relevant and timely thriller that's worth seeing for a new generation.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 25, 2020
8/10 89% Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge (2020) A toasty appetizer for MK fans ready for a brutal and bloody take on the franchise with hints of a lot more carnage to come.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 24, 2020
5/10 65% The Lovebirds (2020) While a tremendously refreshing pairing, the material doesn't make for the best showcase of Rae and Nanjiani's talents. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 34% The Wrong Missy (2020) Go in with a general idea of knowing what's in store you should be surprised by Lapkus emerging as a potential new comedic superstar.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 22, 2020
2/10 50% Evil Little Things (2020) A toy theme horror anthology film that leaves the scares and tension on the shelf. Ignore the urge to pick it up.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6/10 74% Villain (2020) Would probably be a better film if it wasn't so preoccupied diligently following the Carlito's Way playbook on how to make a gangster film.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 21, 2020
1.5/10 0% John Henry (2020) A loud, aimless 97-minute exercise in futility with the subtlety of a sledge hammer against the head.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 15, 2020
6/10 100% Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020) For every DC fan who felt like The Flashpoint Paradox could have used more death, gratuitous violence and questionable characterization of some of the DC Comics icons.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 9, 2020
7.5/10 86% Batsh*t Bride (2020) One of those films that has a killer premise and knows exactly what to do with it resulting in a surprisingly fun wedding theme comedy.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 8, 2020
7/10 25% Dangerous Lies (Windfall) (2020) May play out like a simple Lifetime movie, but there's enough intrigue and twists to make for an entertaining Netflix original movie.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted May 3, 2020
9.5/10 68% Extraction (2020) Chris Hemsworth comes gunning for Keanu Reeves' title of the most hardcore gun-fu specialist with Extraction.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

0/10 0% Girls Just Wanna Have Blood (2020) Finding something positive to say about Girls Just Wanna Have Blood was tricky. It took some doing but at least it's consistently awful.‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9.5/10 88% Selah and the Spades (2020) Cuts the deck of mediocre teen films with the petty nastiness of a Cruel Intentions with some visual elements like a Baz Luhrmann production.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2020
4/10 69% We Summon the Darkness (2020) While angling for a higher purpose with its twist on the standard horror movie fare, We Summon the Darkness fails to light up the genre with its approach.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2020
6.5/10 32% Love Wedding Repeat (2020) Starts off well enough, but never manages to recover from a shaky midpoint that should have got ditched at another table.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2020
8/10 No Score Yet Always a Bridesmaid (2019) Largely avoids the frustrating cliches of the genre with an enjoyable fresh cast that haven't become rom-com regulars. It's worth RSVPing some couch time to check this out.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2020
4/10 33% The Dare (2020) The Dare could have used some restraint and a tighter script to be more than just a pale imitation of Saw and other more-gore horror films.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2020
9.5/10 86% Sea Fever (2020) It might hit a little too close to home to be escapist entertainment right now. Those willing to climb aboard will find one of the smartest sci-fi horror/thrillers in years.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2020
2/10 35% Impractical Jokers: The Movie (2020) Will likely connect best with fans of the series and those absolutely desperate for self isolation entertainment.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2020
3/10 64% Same Boat (2020) One of those cool concept, lackluster execution films that capsizes what could have been a very clever and fun film. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2020
7.5/10 81% VFW (2020) Isn't for the faint of heart and while it might be a stretch buying these seniors fighting off hordes of twentysomethings, the cast make it worth checking out.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2020
7/10 93% Uncorked (2020) Not enough freshness to make for a must-see film, but it is a solid enough diversion with its focus on freedom that will be appreciated in this social distancing era. ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2020
5/10 33% Spy Intervention (2020) The inability to choose a direction and stick with it ultimately makes this a spy game not worth cracking.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2020
9.5/10 88% Superman: Red Son (2020) It's the quiet, thoughtful moments where the lines blur between the Smallville- and Russian-raised Superman where the film shines.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2020
7/10 56% The Hunt (2020) As a wild, brainless spectacle, The Hunt is pretty entertaining, but as a commentary offering anything deeper its hot takes on society are hardly worth the outrage.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2020
4/10 30% Bloodshot (2020) Bloodshot doesn't have enough heart to embrace its comic book roots and fails at being the next evolution in sci-fi action films.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2020
7.5/10 70% To Your Last Death (2019) A devilishly clever concept that almost manages to reach the finish line before somewhat losing its way.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2020
8/10 36% Spenser Confidential (2020) Much like The Equalizer became an unexpected franchise vehicle for Denzel Washington, Spenser Confidential successfully adapts a vigilante style TV series.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2020
9.5/10 90% My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (2020) While it may not end 2020 as the best superhero film of the year, it definitely is going to make the rest of the competition step up its game.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2020
1/10 No Score Yet Atomic Apocalypse (Black Flowers) (2018) Maybe the real value here is watching Atomic Apocalypse as the centerpiece of a bad movie night with your most jeer-ready friends. Otherwise, it's best to leave this in the wasteland.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2020
4/10 No Score Yet Alien Outbreak (2020) Has some promise and Rowe does his best with limited resources, but it's not enough to make the film worth checking out for anyone but the most die-hard sci-fi fans.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
7/10 100% Snatchers (2019) Snatchers probably could have been a little tighter and efficient with some scenes, but overall it makes good on its premise and delivers a fun way to spend a slow afternoon.‐ Lyles' Movie Files
