5/5 94% Nomadland (2021) Zhao artfully showcases both the supportive community of vandwellers and the intense isolation of the lifestyle. Fern's loneliness is magnified against the stunning natural landscapes she visits. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 88% The Dig (2021) Not a lot happens in The Dig,but that's hardly the point. With beautiful visuals and terrific performances, the film evokes a simpler yet moving style of movie that wouldn't be out of place in the Merchant Ivory catalogue. - The Mary Sue EDIT

17% Ava (2020) Ava never picks a lane: it's humorless, dry, and uninspired to the point that it feels like someone tried to shoehorn La Femme Nikita into a Lifetime movie. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 55% The Prom (2020) Like most Ryan Murphy vehicles, The Prom soon overstays its welcome. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 89% Run (2020) Disabled representation is long overdue, and Run sets the standard by doing it right. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 89% Save Yourselves! (2020) The film does a great job of portraying characters in crisis, while staying grounded and intensely relatable. It also serves as an apt metaphor for commitment and relationships. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 60% Project Power (2020) Despite its shortcomings, the film delivers an entertaining entry into Netflix's summer of blockbuster movies. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 63% Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) With just enough flash and goofy moments to keep you entertained, there are worse ways to spend an evening, and you may just find yourself won over by the end. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 97% The Half of It (2020) The result is a deeply felt, authentic look at what it means to actually come of age, and the weird messy struggle that is adolescence and knowing oneself more deeply. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 80% Code 8 (2019) There is a rich world to explore here, and it seems that the Amells will get the opportunity to delve further into the tales of Lincoln City. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 67% Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (2020) While the whodunit is lacking, there's still plenty to enjoy in the film. - The Mary Sue EDIT

28% The Rhythm Section (2020) I think it's still well worth seeing for Lively's performance alone, and some brutal action sequences that are well shot. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Even potentially exciting sequences, like the Samoan battle with traditional weaponry, is dulled by quick editing and uninspired filmmaking. - The Mary Sue EDIT

23% Men in Black International (2019) The franchise and its stars deserved better than this disappointing outing. - The Mary Sue EDIT

82% Someone Great (2019) Someone Great is a perfect "Girls Night In" film, and one you'll want to revisit again and again. - The Mary Sue EDIT

55% Never Been Kissed (1999) Never Been Kissed remains one of the best teen movies and romcoms of the '90s, and a true ode to nerdy, overly enthusiastic girls of all ages. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) The experience of viewing Alita: Battle Angel is a non-stop, entertaining as hell ride. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 74% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2019) The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot, for all its missteps, packs a surprisingly emotional punch. - The Mary Sue EDIT

70% The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) The odd couple pairing of Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson is one of the film's best assets, as the duo display terrific comedic chemistry. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 85% Dumplin' (2018) There's a sweetness to the film that may dip into saccharine territory for some viewers, but I didn't mind the comforting formula of the film. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 91% Bumblebee (2018) [It's] a crowd-pleaser of a movie, and it hits all the necessary beats... The movie succeeds where all of Bay's films failed because, despite being a story centered on battling robots, Bumblebee never loses sight of its humanity. - The Mary Sue EDIT

67% All the Creatures Were Stirring (2018) The film works by taking classic complaints around the holidays and accentuating their effects to hyperbolic effect. The dark humor... makes it a welcome antidote to all the saccharine-sweet Christmas movies we're inundated with every year. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 93% CAM (2018) Cam is an effective, taut thriller that keeps the viewer engaged, and while it doesn't quite stick the landing, it is a compelling and satisfying watch. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 81% Overlord (2018) Committed performances and delightfully gross practical effects make Overlord a fun night out at the movies. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 39% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Lisbeth Salander deserves better than this half-baked film. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 100% Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors (2018) The animated film,... delivers on its promise as an entertaining, warm-hearted celebration of diversity and inclusion. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 33% The Predator (2018) The film is entertaining in fits and starts, but it just never quite comes together as a whole. - The Mary Sue EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018
2/5 23% The Happytime Murders (2018) The film is an exercise in wasted potential, squandering a fun premise and a talented cast in what could have been a legitimately entertaining movie. All the pieces are there, but The Happytime Murders doesn't have a clue what to do with them. - The Mary Sue EDIT

93% Sorry to Bother You (2018) [It] taps into a glorious cinematic history, joining the ranks of films like Dr. Strangelove, Network, Fight Club, and Being John Malkovich as satirical touchstones that define an era of American history. - The Mary Sue EDIT

40% Lizzie Borden Took an Ax (2014) Whenever any of the characters in this movie talk about the murder, we see the same quick shots of bloody axes and bodies. - Autostraddle EDIT
