3.5/5 62% The Call of the Wild (2020) The Call of the Wild is a hybrid of live-action and animated filmmaking done in incredible style. Needless to say, the CGI is fantastic. The cinematography is well executed. It is a true cinematic experience. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4.5/5 73% The Lodge (2020) This film is a great addition to the horror genre. It creeps up on you. You will walk away scared but not for the reason you imagine. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3/5 75% Spies in Disguise (2019) While the themes are everything in this movie, it's missing a significant X-factor. There's no awe-inspiring moment. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3.5/5 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) What's nice about 'Terminator: Dark Fate' is you don't have to rewatch the original first two. The film catches you up to speed in a clear and concise way. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3/5 26% Gemini Man (2019) It's unfortunate that a movie that took at least ten years to fully develop hits the screen with nothing more than a fresh concept and good actors...it can't just be all about the technology. There has to be substance. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4/5 84% Downton Abbey (2019) The film does a brilliant job conveying the romance, misjudgments, and the shenanigans that ensue as we see the Downton staff welcome their Royal Highnesses. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

5/5 68% Joker (2019) It's chilling and ironically, still a fun way to spend two-hours escaping into a fictional world. Joker is such a great film that ventures away from the comic books and dives more into reality. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

2.5/5 23% The Kitchen (2019) While the cast and crew scream blockbuster hit, unfortunately, the film is far from it. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

2.5 53% The Lion King (2019) Disney brings us a version of 'The Lion King' that is not as enjoyable as its predecessor. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3.5/5 23% Men in Black International (2019) The film has a very simple narrative structure, making it a little lackluster in some spots. It could have taken a bigger risk. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Ironically, there isn't enough Jean Grey. It could easily be called anything except "Dark Phoenix." - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3.5/5 32% The Intruder (2019) If you're into horror, 'The Intruder' is a lot of fun. It's got some kinks, but overall it's a good genre film. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) If this film doesn't win an Oscar for Best Picture, no superhero film should. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

2.5/5 47% Little (2019) The writers tried hard not to be too crude with humor while keeping the whimsy of a child's fairytale. This didn't balance out too well for 'Little'. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3/5 47% Dumbo (2019) The story doesn't disappoint, it's just a little heavier for a Disney film that I'm used to. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) This film's message is all about empowering women. It's almost as if every single scene is a conduit for positive female thinking. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

5/5 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) The film gives you the past, present, and future of Spider-Man and it's nothing short of awesome. It's the best parts of Spider-Man wrapped into one fine-tuned package. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

3.5/5 10% Krystal (2018) The subject matter is great and is showcased brilliantly in certain scenes. The drama is there. The comedy is there. [But] there are [also] a few things that didn't mesh well with the film. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT

4/5 47% In Darkness (2018) In Darkness increases the tension with dramatic and extreme angles, extreme close-ups, and a play on sound that dramatizes even the simplest of scenes. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT
