No Score Yet Lace Crater (2016) "Ms. Burdge - all quicksilver emotion and exposed nerve endings - is an endlessly watchable focal point. Her character's vulnerability, uncertainty and growing self-acceptance lend the movie a necessary gravity. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 28, 2016
No Score Yet Fight Valley (2016) "Disappointing plot twists ensue in a climactic brawl starved for snappier choreography and editing. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 21, 2016

100% T-Rex (2016) "You don't have to be a boxing fan to be awed by Claressa Shields, the first woman to win an Olympic gold medal in the sport. But if you are, you'll still be knocked out. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 23, 2016
82% My Love, Don't Cross That River (2016) "There is visual poetry in Jin Mo-young's documentary, "My Love, Don't Cross That River," and unblinking observation as well. " ‐ New York Times

70% Len and Company (2016) "It savors observational subtleties, especially in Mr. Ifans's assured performance. For a baby-boomer-meets-millennial family drama, that's plenty. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016
35% Puerto Ricans In Paris (2016) "Mr. Guzmán and Mr. Garcia have an unforced chemistry. But the effective jokes land too rarely. You'll be ready to leave when the trip is over. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016
92% The Witness (2016) "Ultimately, the murder is eclipsed by Mr. Genovese's own struggles - how his obsession exasperates family members, and how the perceived public apathy inspired him to fight in Vietnam, where he lost his legs. " ‐ New York Times

100% As I AM: The Life and Times of DJ AM (2016) ""As I AM" rockets through its subject's life, teeming with testimonials from the superstar producer-D.J.s Mark Ronson and Paul Oakenfold, among many others. And then it ends, leaving you spent. And wistful. " ‐ New York Times

Posted May 19, 2016
100% Kill Zone 2 (Saat po long 2) (2016) "If there's one rewarding thing about many Hong Kong action directors, it's that they rarely dawdle in getting to what fight fans have come for: bracing shootouts and high-impact fisticuffs and footwork. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Mar 3, 2016

16% The 5th Wave (2016) "It's depressing to see Ms. Moretz - so spirited in "Clouds of Sils Maria" and the "Kick-Ass" movies - reduced to constant mooning at Mr. Roe. And yet the source novel is part of a trilogy. Expect sequels. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016
80% Ip Man 3 (2016) "Despite Mr. Yen's impressive physical virtuosity, his stoic, often humorless presence tends to neutralize the emotional temperature. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Dec 3, 2015
38% The Wannabe (2015) "Mr. Piazza offers a persuasive portrait of decline, but it is the crumbling beauty and flailing hopes of Rose that resonate. Ms. Arquette comprehends the character inside and out, and her aim is true. " ‐ New York Times
