No Score Yet The Escape of Prisoner 614 (2018) This satirical, modern-day Western induces a few mild chuckles but mostly wastes the talents of its cast.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Howard (2018) A rich cinematic portrait.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
No Score Yet Dead Women Walking (2018) Dead Women Walking strongly makes its humanistic points without resorting to didactic arguments. Although undeniably tough viewing, the film demands attention.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
No Score Yet The Bleeding Edge (2018) Chronicling the unnecessary pain and suffering of patients caused by complications of devices and procedures that received little or no testing, The Bleeding Edge is a terrifying eye-opener.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% General Magic (2017) A fascinating cautionary business tale.‐ Hollywood Reporter

88% The Seagull (2018) You can feel the heat, temperature and otherwise, in Michael Mayer's sultry screen adaptation of Anton Chekhov's classic 1896 play.‐ Hollywood Reporter

33% An Ordinary Man (2018) Kingsley delivers such a riveting performance that it becomes easy to overlook the film's less compelling aspects.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
60% Nana (2018) Nana proves another valuable addition to the Holocaust documentary canon, exploring Maryla's important legacy in devoting much of her later years to educating people about the horrors she experienced and witnessed.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
0% Krystal (2018) This is the sort of determinedly quirky would-be comedy that induces far more cringes than laughs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
89% Hitler's Hollywood (2018) Fascinating for history and film buffs alike.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
No Score Yet Those Who Are Fine (Dene wos guet geit) (2017) Stylishly alienating.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2018
No Score Yet Notes on an Appearance (2018) This tale of a young man who goes missing in Brooklyn has some intriguing moments and a unique visual style, but it proves far too elliptical to be of much more than academic interest.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
100% The Heart of Nuba (2018) The Heart of Nuba delivers a moving but thankfully not overly sentimental portrait of this admirable figure.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
42% Spinning Man (2018) Fine performances can't save this formulaic suspenser.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
38% Shelter (2018) Attempting to be both a spy thriller and psychological drama about the emotionally complex relationship between two women from very different worlds, Eran Riklis' Shelter fails to convince on either front.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
No Score Yet Fourplay (2018) We wind up spending more time thinking about how many attempts it took to get the thing done than what we're seeing onscreen.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2018
60% The Gardener (2018) The gorgeous photography and soft-spoken commentary is all very soothing, but a little of it goes a long way.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2018
80% Caught (2018) Caught delivers plenty of terrifying moments, thanks to the highly committed performances by the central quartet, the superb make-up effects and the perfectly calibrated air of mounting claustrophobic tension provided by the director.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
24% Tyler Perry's Acrimony (2018) So ridiculously overwrought that it makes the Madea films look subtle by comparison.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
16% All I Wish (A Little Something for Your Birthday) (2018) Decent romantic comedies, especially ones featuring middle-aged protagonists, are so few and far between that it makes the mediocrity of writer-director Susan Walter's effort all the more regrettable.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
13% God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness (2018) While God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness proves less fiery in its preaching than its predecessors, it's also a significantly duller offering.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
No Score Yet Followers (2018) One can't avoid the feeling that the film would have been far more effective as an absurdist social satire than yet another tired entry in the crowded horror marketplace.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2018
16% Midnight Sun (2018) None of the film rings remotely true, especially the cornball conclusion, but the two young leads are so darn attractive and appealing that one can't help being caught up in their characters' poignant romance.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
No Score Yet Dead on Arrival (2018) Unlikely to erase anyone's memories of its classic B-movie inspiration, or even the inferior 1988 remake starring Dennis Quaid. But taken on its own terms, it's not bad.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
80% Pyewacket (2018) Pyewacket is a slow burn chiller that is all the more impressive for its subtlety.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
33% Madame (2018) The labored Madame fails to rise to the level of sophisticated social satire to which it aspires.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) The sequel is an improvement on its predecessor in at least one respect: Its running time is twenty minutes shorter. Not that you feel it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
No Score Yet The Happys (2018) The sort of quirky, insiderish L.A. dramedy that tries but fails to make us care about its troubled young characters who are, you guessed it, looking for happiness.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
No Score Yet If I Leave Here Tomorrow: A Film About Lynyrd Skynyrd (2018) The film expertly tells its story in a way that will prove engaging for fans and non-fans alike.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
70% I Can Only Imagine (2018) Like so many faith-based efforts, I Can Only Imagine suffers from a terminal case of self-importance.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
0% Leprechaun: Origins (2014) Anyone with fond memories of the campy original (and that probably doesn't include Jennifer Aniston, who made her screen debut in it), should steer clear of this edition, whose title character has no devilish charm at all.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
83% Augie (2018) Inspiring and moving.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
20% Furlough (2018) A waste of talent.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
No Score Yet Los Angeles Overnight (2018) The film doesn't succeed in its ambition to infuse noir tropes with originality.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2018
20% The Outsider (2018) Designed to offer Western audiences the opportunity to see a Caucasian movie star, and a heartthrob one at that, in an unusual genre setting, The Outsider rarely manages to rise above its audience-baiting concept.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
37% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) Replicating the tropes of its predecessor to a slavish degree, The Strangers: Prey at Night pretty much wastes all its inspiration on its punning title.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
52% The Forgiven (2018) The Forgiven tackles its important political and social issues in an overly talky fashion. The film has its merits, but it represents a significant comedown for the director of such classics as The Mission and The Killing Fields.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
57% Juggernaut (2018) Strong performances and atmosphere compensate for the cliched storyline.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
56% The Lullaby (2018) Crudely effective, although you've seen it all before.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
100% Breaking Point: The War for Democracy in Ukraine (2018) Breaking Point benefits greatly from its harrowing footage taken from both news and private sources.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2018
92% Midnighters (2018) A low-budget film noir that benefits greatly from its tautness and lack of pretension.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
0% Curvature (2018) Could use some straightening.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
36% The Chamber (2018) Goes nowhere slowly.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
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
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
No Score Yet Out of My Head (2017) A fascinating look at an often misunderstood condition.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
63% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2018
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
