47% Bokeh (2017) A contemplative Malick-like drama that leans heavily on its Iceland locations and the genuine chemistry between its two young actors.‐ Film Journal International

2.5/5 19% CHIPS (2017) It's a convoluted mess that zig-zags all over the map, but there are enough jokes that connect to keep you along for the ride.‐ New York Daily News

3.5/5 39% Wilson (2017) Wilson is a fine showcase for the talented Woody Harrelson to create another character who, at least at first, is mostly likable for being so unlikable.‐ Den of Geek

3/5 53% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Jessica Chastain and director Niki Caro bring a tenderness to The Zookeeper's Wife, but it's hurt by erratic pacing.‐ Den of Geek

B+ 66% Life (2017) A welcome addition to the genre, although it is slower and more grounded in reality than the science fiction movies to which modern audiences have become accustomed. ‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2017
No Score Yet The Show About the Show (2017) An amusing show-slash-movie, with the caveat being that you really need to be able to endure Zahedi's nerdy and neurotic persona to be able to fully appreciate his work.‐ Film Journal International

84% Frantz (2017) An absolutely fantastic film from Ozon ... easily Ozon's most striking and solid films in years.‐ LRM

77% T2 Trainspotting (2017) An interesting character study and a nice book-end to the original Trainspotting.‐ LRM

1.5/5 0% All Nighter (2017) No, the main duo isn't the problem as much as it is the bad writing and a lot of the cast around them.‐ Den of Geek

B 44% The Belko Experiment (2017) Works well as a movie meant to provoke thought and discussion with a capitol 'P.'‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
100% The Last Laugh (2017) A brilliant must-watch documentary whether you're Jewish or a fan of comedy and how/why it does or doesn't work.‐ LRM

39% Wolves (2017) One of Freundlich's career best, just an amazing achievement in creating a movie that keeps you on edge...‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
B- 78% Kong: Skull Island (2017) A popcorn movie that's only good as long as you still have popcorn left in your tub, and is quickly forgotten after you've run out. ‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
1.5/5 21% The Shack (2017) An important message ... buried under platitudes, sermons and a saccharine score that endlessly plucks at the heart strings. ‐ New York Daily News

92% Donald Cried (2017) Kris Avedisian's undeniably quirky charm in the title role helps steer this indie buddy comedy away from the usual clichés.‐ Film Journal International

1/5 22% Collide (2017) Poorly conceived and executed, it doesn't even feel like something that can be laughed about when it shows up on cable... which will probably be very soon.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
85% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) If you're a fan of genre films, especially things like Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later, then this is definitely a movie you'll want to check out. ‐ LRM

3.5/5 99% Get Out (2017) Peele takes the concept behind Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? to its furthest, most genre extreme.‐ Den of Geek

B+ 92% Logan (2017) Hugh Jackman's last Wolverine story ends on a grim, gritty and ultra-violent note that wins points both for being cinematic and for being so different. ‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
88% My Name Is Emily (2017) Takes its sweet time before audiences can connect to it in the way the filmmaker intended, but ultimately the emotional content of the last act wins you over.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
No Score Yet The Adventure Club (2017) A perfectly harmless family film that's about as challenging and interesting as Saturday morning television fare, and yet, better than expected.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
60% Sophie and the Rising Sun (2017) The actors are so good that it doesn't even seem awkward when the film gives us a romantic angle between Nicholson's Sophie and the Japanese visitor.‐ LRM

2/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) If you loved the original movie, you might not care so much about being given warmed-over seconds. Otherwise, this Wick has burned itself out.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2017
B+ 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) This is a far more fun and family-friendly superhero universe than what we normally get.‐ LRM
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2017
1/5 6% Rings (2017) In the end, this latest "Rings" sequel is just inexcusably bad.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
6% Rings (2017) Rings does little to improve upon a tired horror idea that's been done better by other filmmakers, making it aggravatingly redundant.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
2.5/5 17% The Space Between Us (2017) The movie tends to fluctuate between being corny, sappy, and outright ridiculous.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
No Score Yet Doobious Sources (2017) Moronic lowbrow stoner humor and two of the most annoying characters ever put onscreen make this a grueling experience. ‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
75% Split (2017) M. Night Shyamalan's thrilling and satisfying return to form showcases an entertaining, multi-faceted role for James McAvoy.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2017
2/5 18% Sleepless (2017) Sleepless isn't bad for making the Vegas PD seem corrupt, as much as it is bad for making them look incompetent and clueless.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
3/5 23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Probably best seen with a rowdy theater reacting every time the spirit's name is uttered.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
17% The Crash (Jekyll Island) (2017) Detailed knowledge of the subject and a fine ensemble cast of characters makes for a compelling (albeit wholly fictional) financial thriller.‐ Film Journal International

2/5 17% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) This is clearly one franchise that's been fully drained of its blood.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
2.5/5 34% Live By Night (2017) For a movie where so much occurs in the first 30 minutes, the pace still tends to drag and, at times, is as slow as hell. A lot of these problems can be attributed to Affleck's stilted screenplay that never quite finds the right tone.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
80% Patriots Day (2017) A harrowing but inspiring look at a deplorable act of terror that brought a number of brave individuals and a city together to find those responsible.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2016
4.5/5 93% I, Daniel Blake (2016) In a world that seems to be getting worse with every passing minute, I, Daniel Blake is a sobering but inspiring pleasure - easily one of the best films of the year.‐ New York Daily News

1.5/5 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) For years we've heard moans that video-game movies are jinxed ... Assassin's Creed won't lift that curse. ‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
73% Sing (2016) A somewhat silly premise leads to a lot of hilariously quirky animated musical fun.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
31% Passengers (2016) A slow-moving, heady twist on the space travel sci-fi subgenre that benefits more from Chris Pratt's dynamic range than Jennifer Lawrence's performance.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
3.5/5 40% Why Him? (2016) Ventures into some corny (yet sweet) territory in resolving its central conflict, but it throws enough laughs at the viewer that at least some of them land.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
3.5/5 12% Collateral Beauty (2016) Despite the strange direction the plot takes, this is a film that goes with old school traditional values in the vein of movies like Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life...‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
4.5/5 87% A Monster Calls (2017) A deeply emotional film about loss that will probably have you crying by film's end.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
2/5 24% Solace (2016) End up being better than it probably deserves to be, but most of the time, that's because Hopkins can really do no wrong ... except in picking his movies.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
4/5 73% Sing (2016) Garth Jennings ("Son of Rambow") gives the humor in this comedy a very different sensibility.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
4/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) This inspirational story of three brilliant women is like a bright ray of hope breaking out from the pre-Civil Rights South.‐ Den of Geek
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2016
No Score Yet Sad Vacation: The Last Days of Sid and Nancy (2016) A decent look into the tumultuous rock relationship that led to murder, but not particularly essential except to Sex Pistols completists.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
95% Old Stone (Lao Shi) (2016) Canadian/Chinese director Johnny Ma has made a sensational debut.‐ LRM
