72% WeWork: or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn (2021) It's just not all that clear WeWork understands what precisely the story of WeWork is supposed to caution against. - Mashable EDIT

25% Thunder Force (2021) A superhero comedy starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer that does a disservice to every noun in that description. - Mashable EDIT

28% The Unholy (2021) It's not all bad, but it's not much good. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT

78% Concrete Cowboy (2021) It's worth watching because the setting is so interesting and the performances so strong, but it's a little uneven. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT

72% WeWork: or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn (2021) The story is so inherently wild that I was never bored with it, but it feel like it is scratching at something deeper... But never quite manages to get there. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT

85% Nina Wu (Zhuo ren mi mi) (2020) Stylish, spiky, disturbing and complicated. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT

97% Shiva Baby (2021) It's like a feature length anxiety attack... It's not a comforting watch, but if you're in the mood to really be "in a mood," this is a good pick. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT

100% The Outside Story (2020) It is small, cute, cozy, a little funny and endearing. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT

74% Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Freed from the obligation to try and be anything more meaningful than it is, Godzilla vs. Kong ekes out its biggest triumphs when it embraces silliness and spectacle. - Mashable EDIT

97% Slaxx (2020) An interesting premise... and the film does have fun with it. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2021
66% Long Weekend (2021) Finn Wittrock and Zoe Chao have really good chemistry and the writing is strong enough that you believe in the affection these two people have for each other. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2021
47% Yes Day (2021) A pretty sweet and cute comedy... Jennifer Garner is famously likable, and she's likable here. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2021
86% Come True (2021) By the end, you're just like "Well okay, that was that." - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2021
29% Long Live Rock... Celebrate the Chaos (2021) It ends up super shallow, which is not to say it's without its charms. It can be likable at times... But it's such a broad directive trying to celebrate rock that it becomes meaningless. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2021
93% The Inheritance (2020) It doesn't hold your hand as it walks through this political history, but there is just such creative energy and warmth flowing throughout the movie and no small amount of humor. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2021
88% Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal (2021) You come away feeling a little bit differently about not just the scandal itself, but the systems that gave rise to it. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT

75% Kid 90 (2021) It seems a little too polished and polite despite the fun of seeing these totally off-the-cuff home video footage of all these other actors. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2021
71% Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) In short, it's a movie that cares enough to swing big, even if that means it misses sometimes. These beloved heroes deserve no less. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2021
94% Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) Fortunately, the journey isn't all that much less enjoyable for being somewhat predictable - if anything, there's satisfaction in its tidiness, like clicking together the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2021
72% Flora & Ulysses (2021) It's one of those family movies that are kind of cute to watch if you have a kid to entertain, but otherwise there's no reason for an adult to watch it. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2021
92% Days of the Bagnold Summer (2021) It's really sweet and funny without overdoing it with the drama or the quirkiness. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2021
100% 17 Blocks (2019) It's a vey sensitive, nonjudgmental exploration of some very tricky topics that's made all the more powerful by the intimacy of its perspective. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2021
80% I Care a Lot (2021) If you like a nasty, black-hearted comedy, it's worth watching for Pike alone -- but don't get your hopes up for the rest of it. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2021
100% Twilight's Kiss (Suk Suk) (2021) It's tender and touching, and I think what makes it work as well as it does is how observed and detailed it is. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2021
95% Test Pattern (2021) It doesn't feel small. It packs a lot into that [short runtime]. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2021
96% Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) Judas lands all the harder framed as a story about us, rather than one about gods from on high. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2021
68% A Glitch in the Matrix (2021) Its explorations of all those rabbit holes tend to be shallow. Ascher appears much more interested in chatting up a small handful of regular people who are extremely into this theory. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2021
85% Passing (2021) The characters of Passing may feel uncomfortable giving voice to the shifting identities and desires and expectations they experience. But Passing itself is a conversation starter, with plenty to say of its own. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2021
97% Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street (2021) If the lingering emotion we're left with after watching Street Gang is a burning desire to rewatch old episodes of Sesame Street, that'll probably suit most viewers - and HBO, the streaming home of both Sesame Street and this documentary - just fine - Mashable EDIT

74% Palmer (2021) It's fine... If you want to watch Justin Timberlake be cute with a kid for a couple of hours, great. If not, then you can skip it. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2021
81% The Night (2021) I thought it really was effectively creepy... There's a pervasive sense that something is off. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2021
73% Fake Famous (2021) I didn't personally find that much new or profound here. I wish that it had gone a little bit deeper and more nuanced. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2021
97% Atlantis (2019) What eventually emerges is a devastating look at this country that has won a war, but lost so much of what they were fighting for. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2021
88% The Dig (2021) By the end, I was unexpectedly moved. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2021
93% Saint Maud (2020) Some of the obvious references are Carrie, Taxi Driver, and Repulsion, but it comes together into something that feels wholly itself. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2021
46% The Little Things (2021) To Hancock's credit, The Little Things commits to its bummer mood to the very last, avoiding an easy resolution in favor of one that acknowledges the messy aftereffects of the case. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2021
100% Derek DelGaudio's In & Of Itself (2020) In & Of Itself might be brave act of kindness, it might be cynical show of trickery, it might be both at once or something else altogether. Whatever else it is, it's completely fascinating. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2021
43% Locked Down (2021) I guess it's a landmark in itself that we've reached the point in our pandemic art deluge that references to the pandemic might elicit not tears or winces, but shrugs. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2021
98% Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) The downside to the film's almost musical rhythm is that it never quite transcends its stagey feel... On the other hand, it's hard to argue against the power of seeing Boseman or Davis' faces fill the screen. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2021
95% Soul (2020) It's some of the most striking work that Pixar has ever turned in. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2021
59% Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) If WW84 can't quite reach the heights of the first film, it still soars beautifully when it matters most. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2020
89% My Psychedelic Love Story (2020) She's very charismatic and it's fun to hang out with her for awhile, even if I'm not sure what the stories add up to. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
50% The Midnight Sky (2020) It lives or dies by how much you're invested in the characters and their arcs, but the characters are somewhat uneven. [Everyone] seems to get one personality trait. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
97% Gunda (2020) It's a film that requires a lot of patience, but if you can get under it's spell then it has a hypnotic quality. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
87% THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone (2020) It does improve the pacing, but otherwise it's very much the same movie. I've always been a sucker for movies about men looking back at their lives full of regret and guilt, so this one very much did it for me. I really enjoyed it. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
98% Assassins (2020) I appreciate that the filmmakers don't sensationalize what is ultimately a very tragic and upsetting story. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
81% I'm Your Woman (2020) Rachel Brosnahan gives such a compelling performance that I was never less than mesmerized. I also would be remiss to not mention that this movie is just a treat to look at. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
88% Let Them All Talk (2020) Sometimes it can feel a little bit forced or like it's just grasping but never quite gets there. That said, there are worse ways to spend a couple of hours than on a cruise ship with these very colorful, interesting, and charismatic actors. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
75% Wander Darkly (2020) Some of it got a little too cutesy and sentimental towards the end... But for the lead performances alone, I think it is worth watching. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
98% Minari (2020) It feels like a warm hug from someone you've known for a long time. - FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) EDIT
