6.5/10 No Score Yet F.R.E.D.I. (2018) It combines the high-stake techno-thriller with the old only-kids-can-solve-this-in trope. HINT: This is a kid's film. - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 No Score Yet My Best Friend's Famous (2019) My Best Friend's Famous is a light story with silly moments and despite being a little all over the place in its core message, the message stands out nonetheless and may resonate with those chasing the dream right now. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 62% Human Capital (2019) While Human Capital has no supernatural he-was-dead-the-whole-time moments, you're going to enjoy a series of excellent performances from its cast, ending in a light mystery solved. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Parallel Chords (2019) As Jaqueline Archer, Rachel Ann is terrific as the woman pushed to her limits to ultimately take control of her life. - Film Threat EDIT

64% Rapid Response (2019) Ultimately, this documentary consists of interviews in the background and car crashes in the fore. It's the engaging content that overcomes the repetitiveness of the visuals. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 18% Hot Air (2019) Even with its sappiness, Hot Air is about family sticking together and finding forgiveness. It a breath of fresh air over the typical a one-sided partisan film. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Fast Food & Cigarettes (2019) It's all over the place and for the most parts it works...more often than it fails. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 No Score Yet Becoming Burlesque (2019) As unique as the story is, Becoming Burlesque succeeds in large part to Shiva Negar's performance as Fatima. She's engaging and charismatic, and she guides Fatima's character arc flawlessly. - Film Threat EDIT

8.5/10 59% Brian Banks (2019) Brian Banks is a feel-good movie of triumph over insurmountable odds. Bank's story is one of hope and inspiration and takes only a minor misstep... - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 46% Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Worth recommending. Watching it is like drinking a 90-minute cup of hot chocolate. Not for a full-price movie ticket, but it's perfect for movie night or the occasional run on cable television during the holidays. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 99% Apollo 11 (2019) Apollo 11 is the definitive documentary film about man's greatest achievement in space and science. In the immortal words of Sam the Eagle, its was a fantastic accomplishment for humanity "but mostly America." - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 55% The Bromley Boys (2018) The Bromley Boys is a light comedic drama, and you'll have a good time if anything British is your cup of tea. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Birds without Feathers (2019) The final verdict is Birds Without Feathers is not for everyone...I found McColm's film intriguing to watch and fascinated by her satirical take on her subject. - Film Threat EDIT

100% Low Low (2019) By far the best quality of this film is its characters. I love that not only does Low Low have four distinct lead characters, but you buy into why exactly they are friends in the first place. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 10% ECCO (2019) I'm on the fence when it comes to ECCO, and primarily it's pacing. At two hours, it moves slowly and intentionally so. That's a long time to engage an audience. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 95% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) What's clear is that a lot of development time, movie resources, and A-List actors all came together to make a masterpiece of a film centering on one person...Zack Gottsagen. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 72% Light of My life (2019) By telling the story through our two protagonists, Affleck is able to effectively create an air of mistrust anytime they meet a stranger and a sense of danger when those strangers arrive at the front door. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) I applaud writers Chris Morgan and Drew Pearce for crafting a script that barely manages to hold itself together. The action and stunts are exciting and hey, The Rock vs. Statham...c'mon. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Skippers (2018) While I appreciate films that take risks, and I always reward those that try something different, the other side of success is failure and Skippers just comes in a step or two shy of success. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) ...DiCaprio and Pitt created these two fantastic characters. We feel a great deal of sympathy for DiCaprio's Dalton aging actor and admire the moral compass of Booth. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Occurrence at Mills Creek (2020) Occurrence at Mills Creek is a pretty standard story about death, grief, and murder, and told in an intriguing way. - Film Threat EDIT

8.5/10 53% The Lion King (2019) It's absolutely gorgeous from the detailed African backdrop to the authentic representation of every animal from their physical appearance to movements. - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 No Score Yet Exiles (2017) Gallegos is thorough in his examination of the subject and how he lays it out. It's very easy to follow. It's definitely not a travel brochure or promotional piece for South Korea. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet Belushi's Toilet (2018) In the end, the two hours felt very long. - Film Threat EDIT

8.5/10 No Score Yet Hot Doug's: The Movie (2017) This film should be required viewing for new small business owners. Christopher Markos knew the exact beats to hit in telling the Top Doug's story. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet Cold Blood (La mémoire du sang) (2019) Cold Blood just falls flat. Secrets should be shocking, unpredictable, and strongly impact the story. Here they're predictable and lacks cleverness in discovering everyone's true identities and motives. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 33% Silent Panic (2019) I liked the fact that Schadt created a mystery that doesn't go down the same rabbit hole as the typical thriller is tempted to take. It's different and warrants your time to check it out. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Far From Home is not as good as Homecoming but it's certainly not a bad film and a different film at that. Although it drags a little up front, the payoff is well worth it. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 63% Yesterday (2019) It has all the sappy, schmaltz you'd expect from Richard Curtis. It lays hard into good feelings and hopeful endings. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Surprise Me! (2019) Surprise Me! beats a little life into its contribution to the very crowded market of Rom-Coms. The film is good and will appeal to fans of the genre, but doesn't do enough to transcend it... - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet My Stretch of Texas Ground (2019) My Stretch of Texas Ground is trying to do some good and force us to empathize with a war happening on the other side...but if you're going to go out of your way to alienate your intended audience, then you're preaching to the choir. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Karate in Ontario: The Uphill Battle. The Cost of Raising a Champion (2016) As a documentary, it's pretty basic. While thoroughly researched, it's pretty much simple interviews interspliced with general video of athletes-young and old, engaged in the sport of karate, a few video demonstrations, and archival footage. - Film Threat EDIT

8.5/10 No Score Yet Inside the Edge: A Professional Blackjack Adventure (2019) This is one of those real-life Ocean's 11 adventures, I will watch over and over again. - Film Threat EDIT

5.5/10 53% The Outsider (2019) The Outsider puts a spin on the western drama but quickly falls back into the conventional tropes of the genre. - Film Threat EDIT

8.5/10 100% The Lavender Scare (2019) As the film calls out the government's unfair treatment, the backbone is the story of Franklin Kameny. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Kinberg succeeds in hitting on the themes of the original Dark Phoenix Saga from the comics and in the end, stands alongside the first X-Men film in both stories. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 89% Rocketman (2019) I liked Rocketman enough to give it a recommendation, but in the end, it felt like turning Elton John's music and life into a musical and the dark, recovery story cannibalized one another and lessened the overall film. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 No Score Yet Yellow Rose (2019) Dale Watson brings his decades of experience to the film's music, songs, and performances. It also helps that Nobelzada can actually sing...and beautifully too. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a really good Godzilla movie. It features a nice line up of monsters from the Toho film are here and the fights, effects, and story work for the most part. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 57% Aladdin (2019) The role of Jasmine transforms from the strong damsel-in-distress female needing Aladdin to rescue her to the budding political leader of her country in which Aladdin becomes her partner rather than her savior. - Film Threat EDIT
