2/4 42% Point Blank (2019) A movie that needs to fly from first frame to last slows down, loses its momentum, and never recovers, limping across the finish line with a climax that doesn't work. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

2/4 77% Nightmare Cinema (2019) Nightmare Cinema starts with a bang, as Brugués drops us into a fun, clever, gory little ride. I was excited for the four installments to follow. I got less and less excited. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

1.5/4 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) It is a joyless, lifeless, boring affair that repeats ideas from better X-films and feels more like an obligatory reunion cash grab than a deeply considered goodbye to iconic characters. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

3/4 89% Meeting Gorbachev (2019) What makes Meeting Gorbachev most interesting is the way we see Herzog shape the narrative through his questions, narration, and filmmaking skills. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

3/4 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) In terms of sheer entertainment value, it's on the higher end of the MCU, a film that elevates its most iconic heroes to the legendary status they deserve and provides a few legitimate thrills along the way. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

3/4 96% Little Woods (2019) If Little Woods had trusted its two leading ladies just a little bit more, it could have been a truly great movie. As is, it's a very good one that is worth seeing mostly for its cast. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

2.5/4 68% Stockholm (2019) It's a bit tonally inconsistent and ultimately doesn't add up to much -- it kind of slips through your fingers the minute it's over -- but Stockholm is just light on its feet enough to keep you entertained while you're watching it. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

1.5/4 29% The Silence (2019) Even the always-welcome Stanley Tucci can't add any flair to a movie that feels so much like a relative of John Krasinski's 2018 smash hit. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

3/4 93% Screwball (2019) [Screwball] is fascinating as an examination of how carefully one needs to choose their allies, especially when they're committing crimes. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

3/4 100% Roll Red Roll (2019) Some of the filmmaking here is a little frustrating, but Roll Red Roll is ultimately an insightful portrait of an entire city shaken and altered by one heinous act, amplified by modern technology. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

100% Extra Ordinary (2019) A defiantly odd piece of work, one that comes from a very unique sense of humor that works for most of its running time, even if this is the kind of thing that likely connects with the funny bone more on late-night cable than it does in the theater. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

93% Sword of Trust (2019) I wanted to discard every element of the plot and just hang out with the characters over coffee for an hour-something that speaks to both Shelton's gift with character/performances and how little I cared about what actually happens in this movie. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

65% Darlin' (2019) An imperfect movie, but I admire McIntosh's go-for-broke style and the ambition of this project, one that reminded me of George A. Romero in the way it tries to blend social commentary, pitch-black humor, and a heavy dose of bloody make-up. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

1.5/4 64% Body at Brighton Rock (2019) Benjamin never quite replicates that creepy feeling of being alone in a dangerous place, resulting in a film that that needs some dirt under its nails and to get under our skin to be effective. It simply never is. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
