Scott Buck

Note: There will be a full discussion about the first six episodes of Iron Fist on Geek Girl Riot. Until then here are our initial thoughts.

Kong: Skull Island

Jordan Vogt-Roberts

In a movie built around twin cinematic icons—King Kong and Apocalypse Now!—Kong: Skull Island is an engaging, provocative entry into the “big monsters” movie franchise being developed by Warner Bros.

Table 19

Jeffrey Blitz

A group of misfits are exiled to the far reaches of a wedding reception—hijinks ensue.

8

Logan

James Mangold

The best Wolverine movie, one of the best X-Men movies, and a damn good two hours too.

9

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

David Yates

Fantastic Beasts introduces us to a darker version of the Wizarding World than we’re used to and we love it.

6

Doctor Strange

Scott Derrickson

After a horrific car accident, brilliant (and boy, does he know it) neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) loses the use of his hands—and after Western medicine can’t help him mend his career-destroying injuries, he heads East, and learns the world actually doesn’t revolve around him.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Tim Burton

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a visual feast that tries too hard to make a statement while still being peculiarly colorblind.

7

Ghostbusters

Paul Feig

Saying this film polarized people is like saying the Ghostbusters slime is just plain green…it’s a bit of an understatement.

Star Trek Beyond

Justin Lin

Beyond is exactly what a Star Trek film should be.

6

Suicide Squad

David Ayer

Maybe what pissed the critics off is there are signs Suicide Squad could’ve been a great movie.
