A-level special effects can’t elevate "Rampage" above its B-grade aspirations.
To be effective, "Ride" needs to nursemaid the slow-build tension but director Jeremy Ungar rushes through too many scenes.

A deliciously perverse, unflinchingly violent espionage thriller that breaks with the tradition of making the spy business the purview of suave characters.
One of the year’s most energetic, visually rewarding, and ultimately exhausting motion pictures.
A great Valentine to old-time video games, the Internet, and Disney (whose princesses steal the show).
For "Roma" to attain its full power (which is considerable), a viewer must exhibit not only patience but fortitude.
