64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) We're handed sadly generic drug-war clichés with lot of guns and car chases.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

90% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Haley understands how to be earnest without being overly earnest.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

94% Incredibles 2 (2018) But something in [Brad Bird] (or me) goes brain-dead when it comes to the "Incredibles" movies. They have no inner spark.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Plain and simple and simply wonderful, Won't You Be My Neighbor? is a beautiful example of palliative cinema.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

89% Hereditary (2018) A disturbing horror movie with the sort of burned-in-your-brain sequences that will jolt you awake in the middle of the night.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

95% First Reformed (2018) First Reformed is that rare movie that questions faith from the standpoint of faith. Schrader is a believer, one brave enough to question why - or even what - he believes.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Everything about Solo seems just plain tired, from Ron Howard's rudimentary direction to the more-of-the-same/ incessant score to the murky cinematography.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

53% Book Club (2018) It's hard to say which is more nauseating, the movie itself or the cloying reviews that suggest your mom will just love it, especially with a nice glass of chardonnay.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

38% Life of the Party (2018) Life of the Party isn't a slog, but given how talented McCarthy is, it's a waste of time.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

93% RBG (2018) More valentine than documentary, the film is a spritely and affectionate tribute to the 84-year-old judge and unlikely pop-culture phenom.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted May 7, 2018
83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) The movie deserves to be full of itself.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted May 1, 2018
32% I Feel Pretty (2018) The good news is, unlike most self-help tomes, this is one is sweet and rather clever and even charming.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
73% Ready Player One (2018) Wow, what a massive cluster...um...you know... the film is. This would-be player tried her best to be ready, but sometimes - sorry, Hamlet - the readiness isn't all.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
95% A Quiet Place (2018) A Quiet Place is a movie built around a gimmick, but it's been jerry-rigged awfully well.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2018
96% The Death of Stalin (2018) Nobody does mordant political vaudeville like Armando Iannucci. His touch is swift, sure and utterly poisonous.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2018
90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Not surprisingly, the movie looks amazing; that's where Anderson always excels. Narratively, however, it chases its own tail, somehow managing to be both molasses-slow and annoyingly over-busy.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

47% Red Sparrow (2018) I still like Lawrence (even with bangs). She's such a good actor that her cheekbones seem to change nationalities as effectively as her accent does. But she can't keep wasting her time on sub-par material like this.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

40% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) The general rule of thumb when it comes to adapting beloved books is that it's much easier to get it wrong than right. DuVernay doesn't get it wrong - not entirely - but she really hasn't gotten it right either.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

81% The Party (2018) The Party does Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? one better.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
83% Game Night (2018) This is all bottom-feeder stuff, aimed at people who feel cool because they know what the Independent Spirit Awards are or who watch "TMZ" more than they'd like to admit.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
24% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) Who knows how much a better script with trained actors would've helped, but I'm willing to go out on a limb and say... considerably.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
56% The Greatest Showman (2017) A showy, confused, big hunk of nothing.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
89% I, Tonya (2018) I, Tonya invites us to understand the white-trash winter wonderland that was this young woman's reality - a place, you could say, where she couldn't win for losing...I, Tonya has a great feel for the tattered fringes of the American Dream.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

91% Phantom Thread (2018) The movie is a lot like its star's performance - fussy and mysterious. And subversively funny.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
82% Molly's Game (2018) To borrow from poker talk, Molly's Game is a royal straight flush. And that's about as good as it gets.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
87% The Post (2018) Yes, it's big and glossy, with big glossy stars and a big glossy director. But it has the fierce heart of a battling indie picture, one that demands we look at what's been right in front of us for decades, but, perhaps, some of us didn't want to see.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

29% Suburbicon (2017) The stories never mesh. In fact, they barely belong in the same movie. It's as if someone decided to remake "Double Indemnity" and cross it with "A Raisin in the Sun."‐ Atlanta Business Chronicle

30% Wonder Wheel (2017) Yes, it's that stale.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards holds you as so few movies do these days. And it does so with the basics: character, dialogue and emotion.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
99% Lady Bird (2017) While Gerwig has assembled an extraordinary ensemble cast. Ronan has to rate as first among equals.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) Granted, some will find the whole conceit a bit precious. Still, you might find it hard not to grin when a squabble breaks out between inventor (Dickens) and invent-ee (Scrooge).‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Simply put, the movie lacks panache. Playfulness. Wit. Instead, it's flat. As flat as week-old champagne.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) There's simply something lulling about this kind of ode-to-England piece that gets it right. And "Goodbye Christopher Robin" certainly does that.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Professor Marston and the Wonder Women isn't quite subversive and it isn't quite illuminating. Ultimately, it isn't quite anything.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Victoria & Abdul is a pleasant enough time-passer. And it is a treat to see Dench on screen for great gobs of time. ‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Ultimately, you may find "Blade Runner 2049" something of a replicant itself. It looks right. It sounds right. It may even have some vestige of a soul.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

82% Brad's Status (2017) ... while it may not change your mind about Stiller, it could entice you into giving him another look. His movie is certainly worth a look.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2017
85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Stone and Carell are both marvelous - even if they are, at times, in different movies.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
69% mother! (2017) It ultimately comes off as undisciplined, as if the filmmaker couldn't be bothered to think it all through, which suggests laziness and lack of focus rather than artistic daring.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
9% Tulip Fever (2017) "Tulip Fever" gave me a mild headache.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
83% Letters From Baghdad (2017) ... "Letters From Bagdad" fleshes out someone who has previously been reduced to a historical footnote.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Ingrid Goes West has some cogent things to say about being a struggling young...someone.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
89% Margin Call (2011) The movie is about gamesmanship and ruthlessness and what it takes to find room at the top. And stay there.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
84% The Ides of March (2011) The fault lies not in the stars, but in a script than underestimates us.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
94% Moneyball (2011) The stats don't add up.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
36% Lola Versus (2012) If nothing else, it gives you a welcome injection of Manhattan, without the cost of the plane and the hotel or even the No. 5 bus.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
89% Bernie (2012) The Coen brothers at their very best could've made this movie. I'll bet they wish they had.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
93% Drive (2011) [Ryan] Gosling's commitment is total; his talent unplumbed.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
93% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) The movie is neither stupid nor offensive, which puts it ahead of a lot of pictures. But I was still perplexed. And, let's face it, disappointed.‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)

68% Men in Black III (2012) Who is incarnated - wonderfully, amazingly - by Josh Brolin. ‐ Saporta Report (Atlanta)
