4/5 88% News of the World (2020) While Captain Kidd is a character who has seen combat, the greatest weapon he possesses is his charisma, wit, and gravitas, and nobody delivers that like [Tom] Hanks. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2/5 55% The Prom (2020) [T]epid and unfunny, with a collection of unlikable characters, basic plotting, and an underwhelming soundtrack. - CinemaBlend EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2020
2/5 50% The Midnight Sky (2020) [I]t's a tired drama built on familiar story beats that, in retrospect, is rendered occasionally nonsensical in moments thanks to its bad twist ending. - CinemaBlend EDIT

2/5 33% Half Brothers (2020) It's obvious and simplistic, and worst of all has a plot entirely built on coincidence and contrivance that undermines both the comedy and the drama. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3/5 72% LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special (2020) The wrap-around story is cute enough, but it also jams a MacGuffin into the plot that has the sole purpose of turning the whole enterprise into a clip show. - CinemaBlend EDIT

4/5 85% Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) As should be expected, it doesn't quite have the same shock quality as its predecessor... but it also succeeds by mixing in plenty of new with the effort to recapture the spirit of the original. - CinemaBlend EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2020
3/5 46% Evil Eye (2020) Evil Eye is certainly watchable, featuring engaging characters, strong relationships, and solid drama, but it's also missing an edge that would allow it to be more than the basic movie it is. - CinemaBlend EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2020
4/5 63% Nocturne (2020) [W]hile you may know where it's headed, the ending packs a wallop all the same, primarily propelled by the power of the performances. - CinemaBlend EDIT

3/5 23% The Binge (2020) Admittedly it's partially given pass that comes from a mindset acknowledging that we can all use a good laugh these days, but that by itself is also an acknowledging that there are laughs to be had. - CinemaBlend EDIT
