86% Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) The only way "Borat 2" can work is if the bar is higher than the first. This is a hugely daunting task, but Cohen pulls it off leading to moments that you can't believe were possible. - Insider EDIT

64% The Missing Person (2009) The mood is also set by the top notch work by d.p. Ryan Samul, and the predominant jazz score. You can almost smell the stale cigarettes as the music comes in when Rosow enters a bar... - Filmmaker Magazine EDIT

80% Pieces of a Woman (2020) "Pieces of a Woman" is a movie that's best absorbed on your own with zero distractions. - Insider EDIT

97% One Night in Miami (2020) The movie's greatest strength is having Regina King at the helm as director. You need someone with a keen understanding of performances and subtleties to pull off a movie like this. - Insider EDIT

51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) It seems there was a strong idea of how to end the Skywalker saga, but they needed to fill in an hour before getting there. - Business Insider EDIT

72% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Keeps things fresh by implementing more game elements, adding some new characters, and trusting that the strength of the existing cast would hold. - Business Insider EDIT

70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) "Terminator: Dark Fate" is the redo the franchise needed. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2019
26% Gemini Man (2019) All of Will Smith's abilities to be the superstar are tested by a horrific script (some of the dialogue is so bad you can't help but laugh out loud) and puzzling direction by Ang Lee (for some reason he fell in love with the tight shot on this movie). - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2019
68% Joker (2019) The Clown Prince of Crime has always been a favorite character to play for actors, but here Joaquin Phoenix takes it to its darkest place. - Business Insider EDIT

Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2019
97% Knives Out (2019) If you are looking for a good time at the movies this holiday season (perhaps searching for a way to escape the family for a few hours), "Knives Out" is certainly one you shouldn't miss. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2019
90% The Lighthouse (2019) It's very impressive that Robert Pattinson has the acting chops to keep up with Willem Dafoe in the crazy department. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2019
67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) "Hobbs & Shaw" has more the feel of a beefed-up "Lethal Weapon" movie than something from "Fast and Furious." And that's not a knock. That's why the movie works. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2019
85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) The movie gives DiCaprio the chance to do work that is some of his best ever. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2019
91% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) It's a fun adventure with lots of comedy weaved in, but it's full of surprises. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2019
97% Toy Story 4 (2019) The first half of the movie has a structured feel similar to the previous feature films, while the second half has the sharp action-adventure feel of the 22-minute TV specials and shorts that were produced after the release of "Toy Story 3." - Business Insider EDIT

22% Men in Black International (2019) Seven years after "Men in Black 3" hit the big screen, the franchise is back with a new cast and the playfulness that made the original with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones such a hit. - Business Insider EDIT

22% Dark Phoenix (2019) When your superhero movie hinges on a finale set on a train, you kind of know you're doomed. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
89% Rocketman (2019) With elaborate dance numbers that have a CGI-added "All That Jazz" feel, the movie is part rags-to-riches story and part rock concert. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted May 28, 2019
57% Aladdin (2019) The biggest problem with the "Aladdin" remake is it's all over the place. Sometimes it's a Bollywood movie; sometimes it's "Hitch 2." - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
96% Booksmart (2019) The movie doesn't just have its pulse on what today's youth are going through, it goes a step further: it is defining a generation. - Business Insider EDIT

Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2019
90% Shazam! (2019) 'Shazam!' is an irresistibly fun mix of 'Big,' 'The Goonies,' and a superhero movie - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2019
93% Us (2019) "Us" is fast-paced, gory, and once more shows the writing talents of Peele. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
79% Captain Marvel (2019) "Captain Marvel" is a lot of things: a buddy movie, a '90s nostalgic coming-of-age tale, a superhero origin story. This mix can be jarring at times, but it hits its stride when the movie tells a story that doesn't follow the blueprint of most MCU titles. - Business Insider EDIT

65% Vice (2018) The entire movie messes with the audience as much as it wickedly satirizes the real-life characters it's portraying. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2018
79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) "Mary Poppins Returns" is one of the most enjoyable movie experiences you'll have over the holidays. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2018
65% Aquaman (2018) This really is the quintessential 21st century popcorn movie. Almost every shot has CGI surrounding the actors, it has a diverse cast, and there's enough action in it that you'll never feel bored. - Business Insider EDIT

97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) The best animated movie of the year. - Business Insider EDIT

83% Creed II (2018) Caple orchestrates a worthy sequel that still has those needed references to the "Rocky" franchise the fans crave, but makes a point to build up Adonis' own story. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2018
30% Venom (2018) "Venom" is an entertaining comic book movie that at times is intentionally funny, while other non-funny moments miss the mark so badly that you can't help but laugh. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2018
74% Assassination Nation (2018) This shock-and-awe indie genre movie from director Sam Levinson (son of Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson) is a blitz to the senses as it explores the dark side of teenage life in 2018 America. - Business Insider EDIT

66% Lizzie (2018) Kristen Stewart and Chloë Sevigny give strong performances and if period pieces are your thing, this one has fantastic production design of the era. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
87% First Man (2018) It's not an astronaut movie in the vein of "The Right Stuff" or "Apollo 13," where the Space Race missions are the main focus... its focus is the life of Neil Armstrong, and as the movie shows, he's a man driven by a ghost from his past. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
80% Mid90s (2018) It's one of those rare stories these days that looks at the beauty of life, rather than the parts that suck. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
91% Widows (2018) It's hard to make a heist movie these days that doesn't feel like the countless others we've had thrown at us going as far back as the days of the film noir... Steve McQueen has caught lightning in a bottle. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
79% Halloween (2018) For a project that has been riding high with anticipation from "Halloween" fans, this is no way to reward them. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2018
90% A Star Is Born (2018) The hype for this movie is already through the roof, and all I can say is it lives up to it. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
82% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Michael Moore has been pushing his new documentary, "Fahrenheit 11/9," as a takedown of President Trump, in actuality the movie is a takedown of the entire political system. - Business Insider EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) The action director Christopher McQuarrie has masterfully crafted what I promise you will not be topped the rest of the year. - Business Insider EDIT
