C+ 28% Proud Mary (2018) Henson clearly has the swagger, charm, and ferocity to make one hell of an action star. She deserves a movie that does her talents justice.‐ Entertainment Weekly

A- 100% Paddington 2 (2018) The entire film sparkles with a Wes Anderson-ish whimsy and a kind heart that'll leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. Just like the film's protagonist.‐ Entertainment Weekly

D+ 26% Bright (2017) Bills itself as part buddy-cop movie, part lavish fantasy, does neither justice, resulting in lazy nonsense that's too silly to be good and too self-serious to be any fun.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
C+ 71% Ferdinand (2017) Ferdinand buries the original story's message under frenetic action scenes and grating sidekicks, turning a classic tale into just another flat animated comedy.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
C- 8% The Snowman (2017) A twisty tale of inexplicable red herrings, baffling plot detours, and Chloe Sevigny as not one but two identical chicken farmers.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
B 83% Marshall (2017) Boseman has headlined biopics before as James Brown and Jackie Robinson, and here, he imbues the young Marshall with a quiet confidence and a dogged devotion to truth and justice.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
B 88% Abundant Acreage Available (2017) Amazingly, this is Ryan's first lead role in a feature film, and although the sparse Abundant Acreage doesn't always rise to her level, her understated but powerful performance brings the story to life - even in the dead of winter.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
B- 89% Marjorie Prime (2017) A quiet, contemplative family drama about memory. And about how those memories shape who we are.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
B+ 86% The Incredible Jessica James (2017) Strouse wrote the film for Williams, and even though this is her leading lady debut, it's almost impossible to imagine any other actress or comedian bringing as much wit and charm to the title role.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
B 90% Girls Trip (2017) Unlike some similar comedies about grownup friends, the four core characters are actually likeable.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
B 78% The Little Hours (2017) A 14th-century convent isn't the most expected setting for a raunchy sex comedy, but with The Little Hours, writer-director Jeff Baena adapts parts of Boccaccio's Decameron into an absurd and hysterical tale of nuns gone wild.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
A- 93% Baby Driver (2017) With Wright in the driver's seat, your standard getaway driver story is transformed into a giddy, adrenaline-filled joyride that'll leave you gripping the edge of your seat and tapping your feet.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2017
B+ 94% SCORE: A Film Music Documentary (2017) Score finally gives film composers their due with a documentary that's part geeky history lesson, part tribute to some of the greatest musical moments in movie history.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
B+ 47% Everything, Everything (2017) Instead of delivering a Nicholas Sparks-ified tale of rowboats and tearful confrontations in rainstorms, Everything, Everything feels like something fresh.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
B+ 93% All This Panic (2017) The result is a pensive, gorgeous meditation on what it means to grow up.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
C- 17% CHIPS (2017) While CHIPS sure is goofy, it falls flat compared to other buddy-cop comedies in its genre, relying too heavily on unpleasant sex jokes (often revolving around gay panic) and a nonsensical crime plot.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
B- 63% Before I Fall (2017) A teen melodrama that's steeped in clichés but still has an unexpectedly poignant message.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
C 26% Fist Fight (2017) Fist Fight may be all about feuding faculty members, but the jokes are downright sophomoric... and sparse.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
C- 10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Leonard sticks much closer to his wife's original goofy plot, and the result is a bland story that never really commits to what it wants to be.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
B 86% A Monster Calls (2017) Bayona packs his tale with spellbinding visuals and honest emotion, and if the ending doesn't reduce you to tears, you may be the real monster.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2017
B+ 72% Sing (2016) After conquering the box office with yellow minions and pets with secret lives, Illumination Entertainment returns with its sweetest and most charming project yet.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2016
B- 76% A Street Cat Named Bob (2016) Treadaway may be sympathetic and charming as the struggling musician, but this is Bob's show, all the way.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
B- 51% Almost Christmas (2016) In all, it's a pleasant enough way to spend two quiet hours with the extended family, but Almost Christmas probably won't be your next holiday tradition.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
A- 96% Moana (2016) Moana has a lot of the hallmarks of your classic Disney adventure - the goofy animal sidekicks, the feel-good messages - but its heroine is something new, a smart and fiery deviation from your standard European lovestruck princesses.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2016
C 20% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) What could've been a clever or innovative spy caper instead feels about as exciting as a subdivision barbecue: not a bad time, per se, but wouldn't you rather be hanging out with James Bond?‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
B- 78% Kevin Hart: What Now? (2016) Hart's exuberance make him a captivating performer-and his energetic delivery helps even the most mediocre jokes land.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
B- 50% Mascots (2016) If you're a Guest devotee, you'll be in the stands cheering; otherwise, Mascots feels like a bit of a retread.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2016
B+ 91% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) A darkly funny, tragic, and ultimately heartwarming tearjerker about the life of one lonely but extraordinary man.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
B- 63% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) To compete with Burton's best, his heroic weirdos need a little more heart-and the monsters need sharper teeth.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2016
B 64% Storks (2016) The film's lesson about finding your family never comes off as saccharine, and although there's nothing particularly innovative about its message, Storks is a little bundle of joy.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2016
C+ 13% Ithaca (2016) Hanks' casting feels like a missed opportunity-much like the rest of Ithaca.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
B 44% The Hollars (2016) Is The Hollars an original, breathtaking dramedy that says anything new about middle-class suburbia and family? No. But with a brisk runtime and a terrific cast, it's a pleasant and bittersweet look at one family struggling to keep it together.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2016
B 83% Imperium (2016) Subtlety is not Imperium's strength. But as a solid thriller, it's far more successful, and Radcliffe is brilliant as the quick-on-his-feet agent.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2016
B- 79% Joshy (2016) Baena delivers a quiet and largely plotless dramedy that walks the line between goofy bro comedy and mumblecore drama.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2016
D- 14% Nine Lives (2016) To add insult to injury, the film actually opens with a montage of renowned cat videos.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2016
B- 78% Into The Forest (2016) Page and Wood, who are both in their upper 20s, hardly make for convincing teenagers, but they both lend weight to Eva and Nell's sisterly bond as the two siblings slowly unravel.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2016
B+ 96% Gleason (2016) The result is a candid testament to not only Gleason himself but the many people who love him.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2016
B+ 98% Don't Think Twice (2016) Don't Think Twice isn't all envy and self-doubt; Birbiglia has also crafted a love letter to improv, capturing the tempestuous and unforgiving art form in a way that only an insider could.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
C- 16% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) The Ice Age series was never great cinema, but there's always been a sense of heart under all the wisecracks and zany antics. Collision Course abandons that in favor of already stale pop culture references and laughless jokes.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
B+ 70% The Infiltrator (2016) It sure is fun to watch Cranston at his best again, masterfully walking the tightrope between good and bad.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2016
C 29% Fathers And Daughters (2016) A cloying, on-the-nose family drama that fails to pack an emotional punch.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2016
C 26% The Duel (2016) Hemsworth's emotionless performance (and a murky subplot about his wife's inexplicable descent into madness) mean that this scattershot Western misses its mark.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2016
C+ 37% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) There's a heavy-handed emphasis on the importance of brotherhood and being true to yourself, but mostly, the emotional stuff takes a backseat to all the pizza, pranks, and flaming garbage trucks that shoot manhole covers like projectiles.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2016
B- 78% Keanu (2016) Thanks to Key and Peele's top-notch comedic chemistry, the jokes are more hit than miss ...‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 29, 2016
B- 63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) The film's heart comes from the unlikely friendship between Ramanujan and Hardy, and Patel and Irons both give nuanced, poignant performances as two men from different worlds ...‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2016
C- 9% Rio, I Love You (Rio, Eu Te Amo) (2016) The shots of Rio's scenic vistas are captivating. The shorts' actual storylines are less so.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2016
B- 43% Mr. Right (2016) The ludicrous action-flick plot slows to a crawl whenever Kendrick and Rockwell aren't on screen (although RZA has a fun cameo as a kindhearted gunman), but the unlikely duo make this candy-colored carnival of blood and romance hard to resist.‐ Entertainment Weekly
