100% Family in Transition (2018) While there has been no shortage of theatrical and television documentaries dealing with transgender issues, Family in Transition stands out both for the particularities inherent in its setting and the deeply sympathetic individuals at its center.‐ Hollywood Reporter

86% Lez Bomb (2018) Lez Bomb may traffic in clichés, but it delivers its messages of love, tolerance and acceptance in such light-hearted, warm fashion that they're easy to overlook.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
83% Monster Party (2018) Gleefully gory and darkly funny, Monster Party is the sort of extreme genre exercise that separates real fans from mere dilettantes.‐ Hollywood Reporter

71% Welcome to Mercy (2018) The novelty of exorcisms and creepy nuns has long since expired... and, other than its exotic setting, Welcome to Mercy does precious little to revive it.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
11% Change in the Air (2018) Change in the Air proves frustrating and dull for most of its running time, displaying unwarranted confidence in its ability to cast a spell.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018

11% I Still See You (2018) I Still See You is painful to watch, and having to learn all the new jargon only makes it feel like an academic chore.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2018
48% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) It should please younger fans of the books who will have no problem with its rudimentary storyline all too repetitive of the original. But it does feel like a missed opportunity to elevate the valuable franchise to bigger and more imaginative heights.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
No Score Yet The Cold Blue (2018) An important companion piece to Wyler's classic and a powerful stand-alone film.‐ Hollywood Reporter

50% Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It (2014) Anyone not already initiated into the Trailer Park Boys cult will find themselves at a loss, both amusement and information-wise, since familiarity with their antics is assumed. Suffice it to say that few newcomers will be converted by this latest outing.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2018
No Score Yet The Family Business: Trump and Taxes (2018) As with The Fourth Estate, the short documentary illustrates how the journalistic sausage is made, which in this case was through an awful lot of hard work. ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
62% Summer '03 (2018) There's nothing terribly new under the sun about any of what transpires. But writer/director Gleason has crafted a film that manages to be simultaneously funny, touching and sensitive.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2018
No Score Yet The Storyteller (2018) While The Storyteller hardly breaks any new ground in its Peter Pan-inspired tale, it boasts an undeniable sweetness that proves appealing amidst so many frenetic kids movies.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
0% American Dresser (2018) Despite a fine cast featuring numerous screen veterans, this is a cliché-ridden effort that quickly runs out of gas.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
78% The Angel (2018) A fascinating tale, delivered with just enough suspense to make it engrossing without feeling over the top.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
72% Final Score (2018) Bautista has the low-key charisma, natural appeal and formidable physicality necessary for an action star, and he makes Final Score worth watching (at home while eating pizza and drinking beer, preferably) despite its endlessly derivative elements.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
38% Unbroken: Path to Redemption (2018) There's a reason that Angelina Jolie's screen adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling Unbroken left out most of the material covered in the book's second half. It just isn't very interesting.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
13% The Basement (2018) The Basement has the feel of a stilted Off-Off-Broadway audition piece.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
88% Nelly (2018) What anchors the proceedings is the lead performance of Mylene Mackay, whose star will definitely be on the rise after this sexy, galvanizing turn.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
10% God Bless the Broken Road (2018) Reverence for God and the church: Check. Patriotism and the highest regard for military service: Check. Country music: Check. NASCAR racing: Check... The only thing missing from God Bless the Broken Road is compelling or believable drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
10% Peppermint (2018) Peppermint lacks subtlety and anything even remotely resembling credibility, but like its heroine, it certainly gets the job done.‐ Hollywood Reporter
