3/4 76% Bad Boys for Life (2020) Think of "Bad Boys for Life" as a Pennsylvania highway store: full of explosives and fun. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 86% Les Misérables (2020) This version remains a tale of downtrodden Parisians and dogged policemen who hound them. Only now we get 21st-century twists: teens with drone cameras, members of the Muslim Brotherhood and a Romani circus. - New York Post EDIT

1/5 20% Cats (2019) Director Tom Hooper's movie is a huge failure because he's completely abandoned the fundamentals of what made "Cats" a terrific show. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Let's hand it to Lucas and Abrams - they did it, knowing full well there is no try. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 69% Bombshell (2019) The drama about a very serious subject shoves aside insight in favor of cartoonish impersonations of Fox News personalities. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 27% A Million Little Pieces (2019) James' inner life and his experience is made up of a million little pieces, but in this flat film we get just one. - New York Post EDIT

1.5/4 71% The Aeronauts (2019) The actually real Glaisher was joined by a guy named Henry Tracey Coxwell, who writer Jack Thorne has unceremoniously scrubbed from history to satisfy a politically correct agenda. Coxwell has been he-rased. - New York Post EDIT

4/4 89% 1917 (2020) "1917" is a modern war classic and one of the best movies of the year. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 97% Knives Out (2019) The fun in "Knives Out" is watching an ensemble of super-serious actors getting to misbehave. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 82% Queen & Slim (2019) Matsoukas... finds two first-rate performances in Kaluuya and Turner-Smith. Theirs is one of the more carefully paced romances in recent memory, and the subtle way their tension switches from fear to desire is masterful. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 51% 21 Bridges (2019) Boseman, for his part, brings warmth to an outwardly chilly role and continues his usual high-caliber acting. But the only way he could save this script is with a pencil. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 63% The Good Liar (2019) The fun of "The Good Liar" is that, just when you think you've got a proper handle on what's going on, your reality is completely shattered. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2019
2.5/4 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) Too much of the rest is standard-issue action fare, and when it comes to the twists, just assume any man is bad. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 77% Frozen II (2019) With "Frozen II," Disney has done the impossible: It's made a terrific animated-musical sequel. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2019
3/4 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) When it confidently hits its stride near the middle, "Doctor Sleep" is gripping. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2019
1/4 46% Last Christmas (2019) In its shoddy attempt to make a splash in the British romantic-comedy genre, it amounts to nothing more than a careless whisper. - New York Post EDIT

4/4 93% Honey Boy (2019) You'll never look at Shia LaBeouf the same way after seeing "Honey Boy," the affecting movie that's inspired by his own life. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2019
2/4 70% The Kill Team (2019) Skarsgård is dangerous as ever here, but writer-director Dan Krauss' drama offers very little insight into the minds of these men, and we're left with no satisfying takeaway. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2019
1.5/4 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Reyes and Davis can't even save their movie. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2019
3/4 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Though the cast is a decade older, "Zombieland: Double Tap" is no less funny. Thanks to some new additions, it's even more riotous. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2019
1/4 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) While the first film was, like "Wicked," an alternate view of a classic good-versus-evil tale, its sequel is a one-note, moralistic sledgehammer with no payoff. - New York Post EDIT

1.5/4 44% The Addams Family (2019) Nothing more than toddler fodder. It's so sweet, the Addams clan would burn it in a bonfire. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 71% The King (2019) Chalamet is powerful in his first authoritative role. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 91% Uncut Gems (2019) In 2019, the Waterboy has become a man. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
3.5/4 97% Pain and Glory (Dolor y gloria) (2019) In a way, casting Banderas is yet another special piece of Almodóvar's biography he's added into this highly personal film. Just don't take the film literally. - New York Post EDIT

4/4 96% The Irishman (2019) Well, chug a 5-hour Energy, because the terrific "Irishman" deserves your full, un-fatigued attention. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 42% The Laundromat (2019) I've just watched a 96-minute op-ed. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 26% Corporate Animals (2019) The worst episode of "The Office" ever. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
2/4 27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) "Rambo: Last Blood" features what's easily the most violent movie scene of the year. It's awesome. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 86% Where's My Roy Cohn? (2019) Roy Cohn was way more entertaining than the new documentary about Roy Cohn. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 84% Ad Astra (2019) When somebody asks Brad Pitt what he did this summer, here's how he should respond: "Resuscitated my acting career!" - New York Post EDIT

1/4 24% The Goldfinch (2019) In simultaneously successfully shoving in every little thing and thus ruining the book, director John Crowley and writer Peter Straughan have killed two birds with one stone. - New York Post EDIT

1.5/4 84% Downton Abbey (2019) Two thumbs "Downton." - New York Post EDIT

3/4 63% It Chapter Two (2019) An immensely satisfying, often thrilling adventure film. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 17% The Fanatic (2019) Travolta, earnest but ridiculous, spends his time furiously rocking back and forth and bellowing to the heavens. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2019
1.5/4 83% Official Secrets (2019) So much of Gregory Bernstein, Sara Bernstein and Gavin Hood's screenplay arrives with a thud that it might've been written with clenched fists. Knightley's overwrought performance doesn't help either. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 88% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) "Brittany" is a comedy so relatable for young New Yorkers, you might need to take a walk after watching it. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2019
2/4 62% Driven (2019) "Driven" is a lot like a DeLorean: Looks great, but moves slow - if it even moves at all. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 49% Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Richard Linklater directed this? - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2019
0/4 23% The Kitchen (2019) "The Kitchen" would seem to be a belabored exercise in third-wave feminism. But if what that movement has come to is "See? Women can be murderous thugs, too!," then it's time for some re-branding. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 90% Luce (2019) "Luce" is a taut, extremely watchable movie, though the dialogue could loosen up a touch. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
2/4 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) The first spinoff in the "Fast & Furious" franchise has misguidedly been made into a ho-hum spy comedy. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2019
2/4 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) I think what Tarantino is going for is brazenly manipulating historical events to suit his style, and turning a well-worn genre on its head. But in so doing he's made an everything bagel of a movie: Part satire, part bear-hug, part fictional bromance. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2019
2/4 84% The Art of Self-Defense (2019) It's amusing, and occasionally funny, but the gags and the identical monotone in which every line is delivered grates. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2019
2/4 91% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) The action, villainy, twists and overall logic fall short of its awesome predecessor. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 63% Yesterday (2019) How soul-satisfying it is for a movie to so strongly believe that if "Help!" was written tomorrow, it would be as popular as "Havana." - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
4/4 63% Child's Play (2019) This re-imagining of Chucky's origins manages to be both crazier and more level-headed than the original, in which the doll strolled around Chicago talking like a gangster from "Guys and Dolls." - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 97% Toy Story 4 (2019) "Toy Story 4" ends on a respectable, bittersweet note that would make the perfect bookend to this likable franchise. But so did the last movie. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 23% Men in Black International (2019) The actors would both make very nice AirBnB hosts, but you can't hang an action comedy on dreamy smiles. - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Turner might be a one-trick pony - I don't see her signing onto "The Hangover: Part V" anytime soon - but it's a winning trick. - New York Post EDIT
