4/5 97% I Am Not a Witch (2018) If you like things to be spelled out, this is not the film for you.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 98% Science Fair (2018) The adorable nerds featured are as charismatic as they are bright, and I assume it was a combination of their personalities and projects that led to their inclusion in the film. ‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 63% I Think We're Alone Now (2018) There's a claustrophobic comfort to it... Yet there is space for silence and reflection, and many shots are quietly beautiful - until a Rush song blares, puncturing the meditative mood. ‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 90% We the Animals (2018) There's a heavy dose of pathos, though the film isn't without its moments of levity. And while the narrative is fragmented, like a memory, by the end there's a seismic shift: And that's something like evolution.‐ Austin Chronicle

2.5/5 92% Support the Girls (2018) Maybe it wouldn't be so confusing if what passed as the film's "resolution" involved something more than the antics of bratty anarchy. It's impossible to support the girls on such shaky ground.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 100% Minding the Gap (2018) There's something inexplicably soothing about the wide shots of the boys rolling along, spiraling down the levels of a parking garage or swerving around city streets at sunset.‐ Austin Chronicle

1.5/5 45% Generation Wealth (2018) The moral lesson of "spend more time with loved ones" is pretty weak sauce if I'm being honest: It's nothing more than an unheeded warning sign on the edge of the diamond-encrusted road straight to ruin.‐ Austin Chronicle

2.5/5 55% Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town (2018) It's all mighty existential and interesting, yet the introduction of this heady topic acts as prelude to a rather bizarre, if dark, comedic situation. The timing, like everything in this movie, is a little off-kilter.‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 59% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) No offense to composer Mark Mothersbaugh (who is heavily involved in all three films) but the soundtrack is better this time around, thanks to some heavy, entrancing, villainous beats by DJ Tiësto.‐ Austin Chronicle

4/5 70% Damsel (2018) The filmmakers are poking fun at the male ego without portraying its more sinister aspects. It's a new spin on an old narrative - a fresh start if you will.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) While there are some weak platitudes delivered via dialogue, the film takes a refreshing look at queer relationships.‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) he ensemble cast blends well, but Anne Hathaway as Daphne Kluger... stands out as she basks in the spotlight and seems to thoroughly enjoy being free of her usual nice-girl tame role.‐ Austin Chronicle

1/5 59% Always at the Carlyle (2018) I get that many Americans are captivated by the celebrity mystique, but many of the hotel's customers are anonymous billionaires. At least I can finally sleep at night knowing that they're always comfortable at the Carlyle.‐ Austin Chronicle

2.5/5 89% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) The filmmakers do well to create a rich milieu, even if it is as short-lived and enigmatic as the artist's own life.‐ Austin Chronicle

4/5 94% Beast (2018) Strong performances push the story along; it's not so much about solving a mystery as it is about inner turmoil and the stories we tell ourselves, be they fairy tales or not.‐ Austin Chronicle

4/5 89% Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun? (2018) [Travis] Wilkerson has a really keen eye. Not many people wanted to talk, so oftentimes the camera is artfully focused on an imposing tree or a dilapidated building.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
3.5/5 81% Chappaquiddick (2018) The filmmakers seem to be concerned about preserving her innocence, just as the real-life Kennedy was. It may be a bit idealistic, but it's not a disservice.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
1/5 20% Tyler Perry's Acrimony (2018) [Tyler] Perry implies that not only does she belong there, but she forged every link in her chains. ‐ Austin Chronicle

1/5 22% Midnight Sun (2018) That being said, whatever a midnight sun actually is, its rays are pretty weak.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 100% Rogers Park (2018) Rogers Park covers a lot of ground within a tight runtime, and Henry accomplishes this in part by using economical character development.‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 48% Souvenir (2018) All the action in Souvenir happens in such a dreamlike haze, that it's my personal pet theory that none of it is actually real and Liliane has been sitting in front of the TV the whole time‐ Austin Chronicle

2.5/5 83% Game Night (2018) It feels a bit like someone wanted to make a Coen brothers movie for the Clue crowd: Let's call it kitschy noir.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
4/5 89% Bomb City (2018) The film's message, which it wields like a war chain, is a timeless one: Don't be such a dick to people because they look different from you. We all live in Bomb City: One stray match and the whole thing will explode.‐ Austin Chronicle

2/5 32% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Although I do think PP fans will be satisfied with the finale, let's hope this is the last redux for these pitches.‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 95% The Breadwinner (2017) But most importantly, they provide a window to others' experiences. And that's the first step toward empathy.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) That's the thing about classics: Each reiteration, if done properly, puts us closer to the story at heart.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
1.5/5 70% Angelica (2017) The supernatural elements brush up against some heavy topics, some actual real-life horrors, but like any encounter with a ghost, Angelica is likely to simply leave you cold.‐ Austin Chronicle

2.5/5 40% Amanda and Jack Go Glamping (2017) It's an attempt to conjure the past. Which, in a sense, is precisely what Amanda and Jack are there to do‐ Austin Chronicle

1/5 20% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) The silly men should step aside and let the little girl shine.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
2/5 28% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) It's understandable that the conflicts need some type of resolution. It's just that I was expecting something a little less over-the-top, a little less shiny, and not so neatly packaged.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 100% Mr. Roosevelt (2017) [Nicole] Wells wears a look of consternation with a 50/50 chance she's about to bite someone's head off or burst into tears. ‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
2/5 29% All I See Is You (2017) It's a bit frustrating, as the film does have substance: Couples don't always survive major life changes, especially a shifting in roles. But perhaps I'm just trying to see something that isn't there.‐ Austin Chronicle

2.5/5 76% Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton (2017) Take Every Wave's major fault (and this is true when filming any professional sport) is that the presentation makes it all look too darned easy.‐ Austin Chronicle

1/5 66% Breathe (2017) It's a rather hunky-dory, dainty depiction of what can't have been an easy situation.‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 70% Happy Death Day (2017) The reveal is a bit predictable, but a couple of fake-outs keep things interesting along the way.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
1/5 4% Flatliners (2017) If you find Flatliners to be conceptually interesting (which it is), stay home and rent the original.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 92% Stronger (2017) There's a complexity to the family dynamic that couldn't be more true-to-life.‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 98% Trophy (2017) Trophy instead holds its subject right up to the light, like a diamond, so that all facets can be seen. It may not rouse the public to action, but it will give us something to ponder.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
1.5/5 28% Rebel in the Rye (2017) There are subtle, artful pieces of dialogue which allude to the deeper stuff, but you'd have to be a Salinger scholar to catch them. The whole deal plays right into the famous tight-lipped mystique. And it's really a bit of a bore.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
2/5 38% Kidnap (2017) At just 81 minutes, it's a short shot of adrenaline, exhilarating yet predictable.‐ Austin Chronicle

0.5/5 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) Is "meh" the sound the world will make when it finally sputters out? It doesn't matter because we are clearly #sooverit.‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 88% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) The film's music score is both high-strung and ominous -- at times ringing like the aftermath of a shotgun blast and at others slow and dark like a body being dragged across a floor.‐ Austin Chronicle
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
2.5/5 90% Girls Trip (2017) While there isn't a whole lot distinguishing the film from all the other movies featuring women behaving... however the f--- they want to behave, it does try and elevate itself a little by asking the age-old question: What does it mean to have it all?‐ Austin Chronicle

87% Band Aid (2017) Band Aid accurately depicts the integration of sweetness and trauma that often comes with romantic attachments.‐ Austin Chronicle

62% Maya Dardel (2017) This morbid premise was concocted by a literary pair and it shows with its intellectual inquiry.‐ Austin Chronicle
