88% The Other Side of Everything (Druga strana svega) (2017) Serves up a compelling and provocative look at modern Serbia and allows American audiences some insight into a country they may not be that familiar with.‐

97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Plot is irrelevant here, and made overly complicated, but what carries it is great fight choreography, chases and pacing and a ridiculous sense of fun. ‐

67% Ideal Home (2018) The film succeeds because Rudd and Coogan work so well together as a bickering couple that learns to grow up just a bit in the presence of their young ward.‐

87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) This focus on family and extended family gives Ant-Man and The Wasp a little more heart than most superhero films.‐

48% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) "How To Talk To Girls"...serves up a fun, occasionally touching film that shows Mitchell has style to burn and a compassionate sensibility.‐

83% Deadpool 2 (2018) [Deadpool 2] seems more relaxed and comfortable in the way it both skewers the superhero formula and then completely succumbs to it. Then has no trouble pointing out what a sellout it is.‐

94% RBG (2018) Filmmakers Cohen and West provide a broad overview of Bader Ginsberg's life and work but without any real insights or passion. Fortunately, the film's subject is more than capable of holding our attention.‐

69% Wildling (2018) A clever reimagining of werewolf lore using a present-day setting and female twist.‐

83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Clocking in at more than two-and-a-half hours, Infinity War never drags. Having multiple characters and storylines to cut back and forth between helps build a sense of pace.‐

52% Rampage (2018) Rampage is by no means great filmmaking, but it does tap into the kaiju-inspired source of the video game to deliver what the 12-year-old in me loves: crazy big monsters destroying everything in their path.‐

96% Foxtrot (2018) On one level it is bleak and full of despair and on another, it pulses with magic realism and a sardonic humor that is critical of the state of affairs in Israel today.‐

95% A Quiet Place (2018) And for a film where sound is so important to the lives of the characters, Krasinski doesn't really pay all that much heed to the sound design of his film. ‐
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
95% Tehran Taboo (2018) "Tehran Taboo" is enlightening and engaging. It manages to be both tragic and wryly funny as it explores social, cultural and political issues of modern Iran.‐

100% The Blood Is at the Doorstep (2017) [Erik] Ljung's willingness to let the film breath, to let those gunshots play out in real time, and to hold on interviewees for a few moments after they have stopped talking gives the film a sense of reflection amidst all the heated emotions.‐

89% Isle of Dogs (2018) I have to confess I am enamored with the animation style of Isle of Dogs that I almost don't care about anything else because it completely transports me to another world. ‐

64% The Cured (2018) David Freyne creates a thoughtful and provocative zombie film. ‐
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
96% Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017) [Alexandra] Dean doesn't break new ground in terms of the documentary format but she proves to be a dogged researcher who uncovers some great archived material about Lamarr. ‐

97% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther is the superhero film we need now, one that mixes entertainment with social awareness. It serves up a powerful but flawed hero, a villain we sympathize with and strong female characters. ‐
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
80% The Party (2018) Wicked fun and a provocative look at what feels like modern human foibles.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
91% Phantom Thread (2018) If this is Day-Lewis' last film (and I hope it is not) then it sums up his career in a sweetly satisfying and intimate way.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
100% Haunters: The Art of the Scare (2017) Haunters: The Art of the Scare is the perfect film for those of us who want Halloween to last all year long... and to those of you who cannot understand that, it may give you some insight into why some of us love to scare others and be scared ourselves.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
99% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) Faces Places ... is an absolutely charming and delightful documentary but it also has something to say about how we choose to live our lives.‐

82% Molly's Game (2018) Molly's Game proves that Sorkin knows how to bring a book to energetic life on the big screen. His trademark sharp dialogue is on display as well as his savvy sense of craft. ‐

40% Justice League (2017) ... a decided improvement over the previous two outings. But that's not saying much.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
82% Tom of Finland (2017) ... filmmaker Dome Karukoski employs a paint-by-numbers approach that fails to mine the material for all its richness.‐

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) "Blade Runner 2049"... is a film to savor and mull over.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) What the film really needs to succeed is to make Abdul as three dimensional as Victoria, to give him as much screen time and development as she receives.‐

52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) I appreciate that the film immediately announces its intent to top the original in terms of ridiculousness and unreal action. Audiences can't complain that what follows is not what they were prepared for.‐

69% mother! (2017) It is rare these days to find an American film that surprises you and that does not announce its intent from its opening frame. I love the fact that at no point did I know where Aronofsky was taking me and that I could not predict what was to come.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
81% Brigsby Bear (2017) It displays an originality that definitely makes it stand out.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
83% Detroit (2017) The film leaves you with a deep sense of outrage that justice was never served and that on a certain level, little has changed in 50 years.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
77% Atomic Blonde (2017) Atomic Blonde has flaws but in the end it still delivers a great fix for action junkies and inspires hope that even a woman in her 40s can be the lead in an action movie.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
78% The Beguiled (2017) The Beguiled is a clever remake that proves if you have a vision for reimagining a film you can deliver something effective.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Any flaws found in War for the Planet of the Apes are offset by Serkis' Caesar. He anchors the film with a humanity and genuine emotion that is all too rare in films with no CGI characters.‐

100% Dawson City: Frozen Time (2017) The experience is so rooted in sound and image that words fail to capture its unique allure.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
84% Megan Leavey (2017) Cowperthwaite's approach is low key so that the heroics of both Leavey and her dog Rex play out as something that was just an everyday part of their job in Iraq and not like some Michael Bay action film.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
92% Wonder Woman (2017) Jenkins delivers Wonder Woman's origin story and although it's uneven and overlong it finds humor, humanity, and an appealingly old school sense of honor in its title character.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
66% Alien: Covenant (2017) Not since George Lucas made his Star Wars prequels has a filmmaker revisited a franchise that he created and gone so wrong as Scott now does with his Alien prequels.‐

83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Thank you, Mr. Gunn, for starting off our summer movie season on such a high note.‐

80% Colossal (2017) Vigalondo is definitely a skilled filmmaker, but he seems out of sync in some ways with this bigger budget and lead star. But his cleverness still shines through.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
75% The Void (2017) The end result is an entertaining horror film with solid acting, impressive special effects and a script that could use more focus and cleverness.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) The problem with this remake lies in a fundamental difference between what this Japanese anime does and what big budgeted Hollywood pictures need to do.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island is first and foremost a monster movie, and if you are going just for the monster, then "Skull Island" delivers the goods.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
98% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) Barras' direction keeps the film from being neither sentimental nor heavy-handed as it weaves an exquisite, compassionate tale about overcoming tragedy to find a new sense of family.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
93% Logan (2017) Mangold gives us a lean, focused story that doesn't involve any convoluted plots about evil global plans. Instead it's an elegiac tale about a man coming to terms with his life.‐

10/10 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) John Wick: Chapter 2 Raises The Bar On American Action.‐

8/10 80% The Monster (2016) A creature feature is only as good as its monster and Bertino's film delivers on that.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2017
82% Mifune: The Last Samurai (2016) What the film does succeed at is reminding us what a genius Mifune was and hopefully it will inspire a new generation to discover him.‐
