7.5/10 No Score Yet Kinshasa Makambo (2018) Kinshasa Makambo presents the real price and the real consequences of demanding one's freedom.‐ Film Threat

3/10 No Score Yet Stadium Anthems (2018) Stadium Anthems' storyline is buried deep, deep, deep in this film. Piled on top of it is a non-stop rambling of pithy dialogue in hopes of sounding cool and clever, but coming off as smart-alecky.‐ Film Threat

8.5/10 96% People's Republic of Desire (2018) The People's Republic of Desire is a psychological treatise on self-worth, and the lab rats are the citizens of China. YY could be signs of what is to come in our world of internet celebrity. ‐ Film Threat

7/10 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) I have mixed feelings for Ralph Breaks the Internet. I really wanted it to be as good as the first. Sadly, it's not, but it's still a good film.‐ Film Threat

8/10 57% The Grinch (2018) It's the same. The Grinch, other than the expanded story and the upgraded effects, is exactly the same and leaves you with the same warm feelings for the holidays.‐ Film Threat

7/10 82% Instant Family (2018) Instant Family is a sales pitch and lays it on pretty thick. Unlike your Hallmark movies, Anders and Morris attempt to give you the whole picture, warts and all, which is admirable.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet Behind the Curve (2018) The best word to describe the way Clark shot Behind the Curve is empathetic.‐ Film Threat

6.5/10 No Score Yet The Outdoorsman (2017) The Outdoorsman is a good movie and sure to please fans of either Brent Morin or Sasheer Zamata. ‐ Film Threat

3/10 No Score Yet President Evil (2018) President Evil is frankly not a good movie. Like many films that mix two genres, in this case, comedy and horror, you ultimately water down the two producing a mediocre final product.‐ Film Threat

8/10 100% Making Montgomery Clift (2018) You see how brilliant an actor Clift was. You see his love of the art of storytelling, developing characters with depth and dimension, and his willingness to put the final product over his own ego. ‐ Film Threat

7/10 38% Tiger (2018) There are enough facts and inspiration to make Tiger worth watching. Mickey Rourke always gives a good performance, and he still fits in the boxing setting. ‐ Film Threat

7.5/10 89% A Private War (2018) Depressed is a feeling you're going to walk away with A Private War. Colvin's downward spiral not only sucked the positive energy from her friends and colleagues, but it will take it away from you as well.‐ Film Threat

5/10 34% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) It's never a good sign when you have to change directors mid-stream and produce a significant amount of reshoots...The Nutcracker and the Four Realms has some serious problem that couldn't be fixed even by Joe Johnston.‐ Film Threat

9/10 86% Unlovable (2018) Unlovable laid everything out on the line, and bared its heart and anyone suffering from any form of addiction can find something in its words. Films like this are few and far between, but the sooner we realize it's okay not to be okay, the better.‐ Film Threat

4/10 No Score Yet Ghost Light (2018) Ghost Light just chooses to play it safe. It just felt like this fun exercise for everyone involved, while offers nothing to the audience that came to watch it.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet All Creatures Here Below (2018) You'll like All Creatures Here Below because you connect with the leads and their story and want to take part on their journey...for better or for worse.‐ Film Threat

8/10 65% Stella's Last Weekend (2018) Big guffaws throughout, sprinkled with little chortles to maintain its pace.‐ Film Threat

7/10 No Score Yet American (2018) American is a patriotic movie that calls out the tragic mistake we foisted upon our own citizens out of fear and racism. This patriotism is not without its blemishes.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet Funke (2018) Funke's beautiful food will make you hungry and the restaurant drama will give you an ulcer.‐ Film Threat

7/10 83% Microhabitat (So-gong-nyeo) (2017) Lee Som's performance as Miso is tragically sweet. Her portrayal is subtle and never confrontational.‐ Film Threat

3.5/5 88% Room For Rent (2017) In all honesty, there's not a lot of deep laughs. But Room for Rent is a funny, light comedy that stays a step ahead of the audience. It's solid story and with solid performances worth checking out.‐ Film Threat

8/10 99% Tea With the Dames (Nothing Like a Dame) (2018) Dench tells a biting story of being ignored and treated like a feeble ghost...‐ Film Threat

5/10 33% Ride (2018) Strip out the thriller moments and you have an interesting film, instead, we're left with a mediocre thriller that phones in the final act.‐ Film Threat

9/10 88% Love, Gilda (2018) Love Gilda is one of those documentaries that will make you laugh, touch your heart, and inspire to make the most of your life without fear.‐ Film Threat

8/10 91% Kusama: Infinity (2018) Lenz's Kusama - Infinity beautifully captures the work and life story of Yayoi Kusama and follows the downward spiral that was Kusama's life. ‐ Film Threat

8/10 96% Rodents of Unusual Size (2018) As a documentary, Rodents of Usual Size makes good use of animation illustrating how Louisiana got itself into this environmental disaster. The filmmakers interview a wide variety of citizens who come at the problem from their own unique perspective. ‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet The Ghost of Peter Sellers (2018) Many times throughout the documentary, Medak's friends and associated ask him why he's making this film. Like those tragic moments in our lives, we have to re-live it and confront it in order to move on with life. ‐ Film Threat
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
6/10 No Score Yet Odd Brodsky (2016) Odd Brodsky is an insightful fable about pursuing the lottery that is Hollywood stardom.‐ Film Threat

7/10 95% Dark Money (2018) Dark Money does succeed in presenting a strong case for campaign finance reform.‐ Film Threat

5/10 No Score Yet Brand New Old Love (2018) Brand New Old Love desperately needed a jolt of energy to get it passed the recommendation mark. Unfortunately, that jolt never came.‐ Film Threat

8/10 59% Operation Finale (2018) Operation Finale is a true thriller feeding off its constant anxiety-inducing tension and on top of that being a true story of justice after one of the worst periods in human history.‐ Film Threat

7/10 100% Restoring Tomorrow (2018) Wolf weaves together an engaging oral history of Wilshire Boulevard Temple using photos, archival film clips, and interviews...‐ Film Threat

6/10 36% Blue Iguana (2018) If you like British comedy that features American guest stars, then you'll like Blue Iguana and it's 118 minutes of silliness. It gets a recommendation for Rockwell and Schwartz's performance alone.‐ Film Threat

8/10 71% Do You Trust this Computer? (2018) Do You Trust This Computer is informative at the least. Everyone and everything comes off as credible, and the philosophy comes off as plausible.‐ Film Threat

8/10 100% 40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie (2018) Aronsohn brings a great deal of production value to his doc. It's beautiful to watch.‐ Film Threat

8/10 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) The only excuse you have not to see Crazy Rich Asians is because you hate love.‐ Film Threat

8/10 71% Christopher Robin (2018) Despite its overused plotline, the film works. It exudes charm. It makes you laugh at the silliest things.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet June Falling Down (2018) As a performer, Weaver effectively carries the entire film as June in virtually every minute.‐ Film Threat

7/10 91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) Ultimately, this is a film for kids with really cool moments, evenly spread throughout to keep the adult interested. Grown-up Easter eggs, if you will.‐ Film Threat

6/10 75% Rondo (2018) This low-budget thriller is worth a view, once you lower your expectations a dozen notches.‐ Film Threat

6/10 59% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) I very much tolerated Hotel Transylvania. It's pretty much an Adam Sandler film for kids. Cursing and vulgarities are replaced by wackiness and farts. Yes, I laughed at the barrage of silliness. I may be an adult, but I'm still human. ‐ Film Threat

7/10 100% Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms (2018) I could easily find myself dismissing these stories strangely told stories and miss out on a beautiful tale, simply because it's different. If you're not a fan of anime, give it try. Be open and patient.‐ Film Threat

8/10 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Fallout is a worthy addition to the franchise and a fast pace thrill-ride. McQuarrie manages to keep the story, stunts, and structure fresh, which makes me wonder if he has another one in him.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet GameChangers: Dreams of BlizzCon (2018) Dreams of BlizzCon tells a riveting story of the life and dreams of hardcore gamers. You don't need to know anything about Starcraft, how its constructed, or how it played to be drawn into the human story.‐ Film Threat

8/10 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and the Wasp is a hilariously, fun action-flick that takes the edge off the tragic ending of Avengers: Infinity War.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet How Jack Became Black (2018) I recommend this film not because I agree or disagree with Steele's premise and conclusions, but because of his honesty, his guts to challenge politically-correct ideas, and the thought-provoking questions he asks.‐ Film Threat

8/10 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) The Incredibles is a story about family wrapped in a high-speed rollercoaster. Part Fantastic Four, part Fast and the Furious. We root for this family to overcome, succeed, and grow stronger together.‐ Film Threat

6/10 33% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) The Catcher Was a Spy really should be more of an exciting movie than it is. Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie...it commits the mortal sin of taking a great story and great cast and producing just a good film.‐ Film Threat

4/10 No Score Yet Zen Dog (2016) The themes in Zen Dogs are constantly at odds with each other and not a one comes out as the winner.‐ Film Threat
