58% Half Magic (2018) While Half Magic proves too frivolous to make its satirical and social points fully register, it offers diverting pleasures along the way.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Out of My Head (2017) A fascinating look at an often misunderstood condition.‐ Hollywood Reporter

67% The Housemaid (Cô Hâu Gái) (2018) Although not particularly original in its recycling of familiar genre tropes, the stylish film should well satisfy horror aficionados while engaging more general audiences as well.‐ Hollywood Reporter

29% Irreplaceable You (2018) Wohl never manages to achieve the proper tonal blend. The result is neither sufficiently funny nor moving, lacking the truly daring humor that might have made the film a bracing dark comedy.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Scent of Rain & Lightning (2018) The Scent of Rain and Lightning is a well-acted, intelligent thriller that ultimately rewards the viewer's patience even if it too often sacrifices narrative clarity in favor of atmosphere.‐ Hollywood Reporter

19% Looking Glass (2018) Even the actors' fine efforts cannot rescue Looking Glass from terminal murkiness.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
90% Still/Born (2018) Works most effectively in its subtler, more enigmatic moments than when it indulges in familiar horror film conventions. Nevertheless, it does offer a consistent level of tension, a few decent scares and a terrific lead turn by Christie Burke.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% 2018 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Live Action (2018) One of the best line-ups in this category in years.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% 2018 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Animation (2018) The darker entries are the most compelling.‐ Hollywood Reporter

74% Permission (2018) An unconvincing treatment of familiar themes.‐ Hollywood Reporter

9% Basmati Blues (2018) Ca-Ca Land.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
86% The Peacemaker (2018) A deeply moving portrait of its truly admirable, complex subject.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2018
92% The Cage Fighter (2018) A real-life version of Hollywood boxing-movie tropes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2018
73% Braven (2018) Despite his fearsome physicality, Momoa again manages to come off as a relatable everyman, and Lang, as usual, superbly handles his role's considerable emotional and physical demands.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
0% The Music of Silence (2018) It's the cinematic equivalent of listening to opera in an elevator.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
50% The Misguided (2018) The Misguided ambles along at a languid, uncompelling pace.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
No Score Yet Bernard and Huey (2017) Feiffer's distinctive writing resonates even decades later.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
No Score Yet The Campus (2018) The mishmash of styles smacks of a "let's throw in everything but the kitchen sink" approach that becomes increasingly tiresome the longer it goes on and feels more like a horror anthology than a cohesive story.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Interminable dull stretches blunt the impact of undeniably exciting action sequences, making the series finale unlikely to leave even fans wanting more.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
90% Time Share (Tiempo Compartido) (2018) Time Share proves a cinematically arresting psychological thriller that succeeds in keeping viewers on edge even if it doesn't give them much to mull over afterwards.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
39% Den of Thieves (2018) The loser is the audience for Den of Thieves, an over-the-top crime saga mainly indicating that its writer/director has seen Michael Mann's Heat too many times.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
No Score Yet The Midnight Man (2018) Veterans Englund and Shaye admirably give it their all, but their best efforts are not enough to elevate the subpar material directed in mechanical fashion by Zariwny.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2018
21% Forever My Girl (2018) The two leads are both highly appealing, with Roe credible as a country music superstar.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
No Score Yet Showdown in Manila (2018) A mishmash of action movie and buddy cop clichés rendered in incompetent fashion, this wink-wink homage to 1991's Showdown in Little Tokyo makes its inspiration seem like a classic.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
0% Delirium (2018) Unfortunately, settings alone don't make a movie, and this cliché-ridden effort feels indistinguishable from the countless similarly themed horror films that have preceded it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
25% Inside (2018) Inside somehow manages to be remarkably devoid of suspense throughout its brief running time.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
No Score Yet Blur Circle (2016) Despite its flaws, the film proves very moving at times.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
0% Acts of Violence (2018) Acts of Violence evaporates from your mind while you're watching it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2018
20% Surge of Power: Revenge of the Sequel (2018) Lexerot and Roth may be godawful filmmakers, but they certainly have one hell of a Rolodex.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
No Score Yet Madtown (2018) Madtown is an intriguing drama featuring well-drawn characters and incisive dialogue.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
70% In the Land of Pomegranates (2018) [Beller's] deep-rooted empathy and compassion is plainly evident in her latest effort, but it's not enough to compensate for the tedium engendered by the meandering debates whose impact ultimately adds up to very little.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
55% 47 Meters Down (2017) But on its own B-movie terms 47 Meters Down works just fine, not wearing out its welcome thanks to its quick set-up, rapid pacing and brief running time.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2017
6% Hangman (2017) This formulaic thriller is m_di_c_e.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
No Score Yet Night Accident (Tunku Kyrsyk) (2017) A hugely charming testament to the kindness of strangers.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
32% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Whatever charms the first two movies possessed (and they were considerable thanks to the talented and appealing cast) have been thoroughly lost in this soulless installment.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
80% Sundowners (2017) Exuding such a relaxed feel that it's not surprising that its title doesn't appear onscreen until nearly the half-hour mark, Sundowners never strains too hard for its considerable laughs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
38% Permanent (2017) Arquette is charmingly endearing as the frustrated Jeanne, Wilson movingly conveys his character's vulnerability as well as his bluster and McLean is terrific as the beleaguered young girl desperate to have a mane like Farrah Fawcett's.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
67% Desolation (2017) Too subtle for its own good.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
100% Killing for Love (Das Versprechen) (2017) Featuring compelling real-life figures who practically invite casting guesses for the inevitable Hollywood dramatization, Killing for Love should easily satisfy viewers who can't get enough of this stuff.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
63% Kaleidoscope (2017) Provides juicy opportunities for its leads to deliver tour-de-force performances - and they don't disappoint.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
62% Hollow in the Land (2017) Hollow in the Land traffics in familiar rural thriller territory. But it features an excellent performance from its lead actress and a strong atmosphere of moody tension courtesy of its writer/director.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
57% Bullet Head (2017) The film's main draw is its cast, all of whom have seen more illustrious career days but nonetheless can still deliver the goods.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
50% Kepler's Dream (2017) Thankfully devoid of the fantasy elements endemic to so many cinematic versions of YA novels, Kepler's Dream proves a modest but diverting family film charmer.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2017
94% The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee (2017) Chronicling its subject's life and career in fascinating detail, The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee will prove catnip to journalism and political buffs, not to mention anyone who cares about the free press and its role in our democracy.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2017
No Score Yet Slumber (2017) Although relatively subdued for much of its running time, Slumber eventually devolves into a lengthy, over-the-top climax that's both visually and narratively cheesy.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
50% Love Beats Rhymes (2017) Despite its frequently clunky dramaturgy, the film makes some interesting points while providing an excellent showcase for Banks' considerable onscreen charisma.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
85% Big Time (2017) Occasionally gets bogged down in the sort of minutiae that would have been better left on the cutting room floor, but it also provides an insightful depiction of the personal and professional travails that inevitably accompany career success.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
No Score Yet Maynard (2018) Maynard proves as moving as it is informative.‐ Hollywood Reporter
