Midnight Special is uneven, but just successful enough to suggest that there's room in contemporary sci-fi for more positive, contemplative films. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Midnight Special comes close to greatness is undeniable - its first hour is a deliriously inventive, utterly arresting cosmic thriller that keeps its cards very close to its chest. If only the final act didn't reveal its bluff. Full Review

Needless to say, when one of my favorite working directors tackles an emotional parent-child drama (which has its origins in Nichols' own experience as a parent), I'm going to respond to it. Full Review
