No Score Yet Jo Koy: Live From Seattle (2017) Gender observations may not be groundbreaking, but Jo Koy is plenty animated enough to make it funny. - TheWrap EDIT

100% Mike Birbiglia: Thank God for Jokes (2017) No one is better at constructing hilarious, personal, soul-searching monologues of insecurity and Catholic guilt than Mike Birbiglia. - TheWrap EDIT

No Score Yet Jim Norton: Mouthful Of Shame (2017) Jim Norton has made an art form of cringe-worthy, dirtbag humor. - TheWrap EDIT

83% Jim Gaffigan: Cinco (2017) After establishing a niche as yet another father figure, Jim Gaffigan now has as many stand-up specials as children... But you might grow tired of his clean comedy around minute 9 of his bit about the seasons. - TheWrap EDIT

No Score Yet Lucas Brothers: On Drugs (2017) Their material ranges from "juicy" O.J. Simpson puns to a hilarious two-way phone call between Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley about "Space Jam." - TheWrap EDIT

100% Todd Glass: Act Happy (2018) Todd Glass has put together a truly strange and subversive hour of comedy. - TheWrap EDIT

No Score Yet Bill Burr: Walk Your Way Out (2017) Bill Burr's tell-it-like-it-is ranting, filmed just a few months before the election, now feels passé. - TheWrap EDIT

100% Maria Bamford: Old Baby (2017) Maria Bamford's erratic, scatterbrained comedy has always been an acquired taste, but her latest special proves she's a manic genius. - TheWrap EDIT

100% Tom Segura: Disgraceful (2018) Those who want a replacement for Louis C.K. in the schlubby, cynical and brutally honest middle-aged white guy department can look to Tom Segura. - TheWrap EDIT

43% Ricky Gervais: Humanity (2018) Inflating his ego is part of what you're paying for with Gervais, but this is irritating even for him. - TheWrap EDIT

92% Spielberg (2017) The HBO documentary Spielberg is a lot like some of the legendary director's films: it's well-made, thoughtful, emotional and maybe a little long. - TheWrap EDIT

14% Autumn Lights (2016) An eerie drama of secrets that demonstrates how a lonely setting can play upon the emotions. - Village Voice EDIT

c+ 60% Southpaw (2015) The initial hype for Southpaw was that Jake Gyllenhaal simply looked jacked, and the thrill of seeing him that way never lessens. But he does manage subtlety the rest of the movie doesn't have. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

A- 90% Cartel Land (2015) Cartel Land's narrative and Hollywood shine make this doc a gripping watch... This is a film of real stakes, real deaths, and real conflict. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C- 18% Self/less (2015) Self/less is an empty shell of a movie just waiting for a smarter one to be transplanted into it. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C- 48% A Little Chaos (2015) A Little Chaos comes off as highly concerned with appearances, but it could use a bit of the artistry and sense of rebellion that concerns the film's very premise. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B- 81% Infinitely Polar Bear (2015) Infinitely Polar Bear may be far too soft and inconsequential for it to leave a lasting impact, but Mark Ruffalo's acting alone cements it as a likeable, crowd-pleasing, little film - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C 74% Welcome to Me (2015) Kristen Wiig's subdued yet physical and self-absorbed performance turns Alice into a believable character. But the movie struggles to find the comedy in Alice or the pathos in her situation. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B 85% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) Far From the Madding Crowd may not be the most ideal role for a woman, but Carey Mulligan's an actress who can take this ordinary material and make it sing. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
