3/4 78% The Many Saints of Newark (2021) Woke up this morning, watched myself a film. - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 79% Everybody's Talking About Jamie (2021) The undeniably sweet film, based on the wonderful West End musical, fixes some of the (much better) show's flaws, but loses its humor and energy while it wallows in sadness. - New York Post EDIT

91% Spencer (2021) [It] gets to the meat of what was tormenting the People's Princess better than any simple historical retelling ever could. - New York Post EDIT

22% The Starling (2021) Quoth the raven: "Nevermore!" - New York Post EDIT

69% Last Night in Soho (2021) Just when you've had enough of something, or someone, a new energy comes bursting in. - New York Post EDIT

74% The Guilty (2021) "The Guilty" is never boring, but halfway through you've just had enough of it. - New York Post EDIT

90% Dune (2021) This movie is the first of two planned parts. Please, dear God, make the second one. - New York Post EDIT

78% The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (2021) The century-old story feels fresh. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 46% The Voyeurs (2021) Gussied-up smut. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2021
37% Dear Evan Hansen (2021) [Platt] tones down his stage performance just enough for the big screen, but retains Evan's quick sense of humor and lovable nature, despite his misdeeds. He pummels you in the end. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 80% Worth (2021) The writing in Max Borenstein's script continuously eschews subtlety for static melodrama. You hear the same lines repeated ad nauseam, only slightly tweaked and louder and angrier every time. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2021
3.5/4 92% Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) It's fresh, it's alive, it's not the same old Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are also awesome dragons. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2021
1/4 43% Cinderella (2021) Writer-director Kay Cannon has shattered Cinderella's glass slipper. And we the audience are forced to walk across the shards barefoot. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2021
2/4 60% Vacation Friends (2021) As the film continues, every gag stays on same level and thus becomes less and less satisfying. Not even a breaded cheese enthusiast such as myself wants 300 mozzarella sticks. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2021
3/4 84% Candyman (2021) There's no mistaking what "Candyman" is trying to say. Even so, the loud messages don't overwhelm the plot or characters because director DaCosta, in only her second feature, has made such an exciting, fun movie. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2021
2/4 37% Reminiscence (2021) A burdensome slog. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2021
2/4 62% The Protégé (2021) The film's bright spot is Q, who has really become a capable, confident, sexy action star. I can't wait to see her in another action movie that is not this one. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2021
3.5/4 96% CODA (2021) If you're in the market for a heart-warmer, look no further. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2021
2/4 66% Respect (2021) You've seen "Respect" before. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2021
4/4 80% Free Guy (2021) Studios, please make more movies like "Free Guy." - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2021
3/4 87% Vivo (2021) Mindbogglingly, most of Miranda's endless string of projects are good-to-great, not vanilla corporate garbage, and the sweet new animated movie "Vivo" is no exception. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2021
3/4 90% The Suicide Squad (2021) The Squad is dead! Long live The Squad! - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2021
2/4 62% Jungle Cruise (2021) To bulk up the thin material, the film steals from countless other, better adventure movies to create an altogether less satisfying combo plate that costs $30 to rent on Disney+. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 75% Stillwater (2021) Deftly explores... the cultural barriers that prevent us from achieving basic goals, such as solving a murder, and connecting with people unlike ourselves. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2021
3/4 88% The Green Knight (2021) The film seizes Lowery's best skills as a director: his eye for innocence and nature and how he uses slowness to deepen a story. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2021
2/4 37% Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) The fights, taken on their own, are occasionally OK, but not enough to lift this joke-and-fun-free slog. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2021
3/4 50% Old (2021) I was glued to every single second of it. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2021
1/4 26% Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021) In the pantheon of misguided sequels and reboots, "A New Legacy" is right up there with "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" and "Little Fockers." - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2021
1/4 47% Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) The best thing about the "Escape Room" film series is that it gives audience members clear directions in the title about what they should immediately do: Escape. Room. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2021
3/4 96% Pig (2021) [An] undeniably odd, but surprisingly touching drama... - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2021
3/4 83% Fear Street Part One: 1994 (2021) Nobody really needs a brain to enjoy this movie. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2021
2/4 49% The Forever Purge (2021) That idea was fun once, maybe even twice, but by the fifth outing the formula has given way to preachiness and predictability. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2021
2/4 52% The Tomorrow War (2021) [It] throws "Alien," "The Terminator" and "A Quiet Place" in a blender. And, like that gross kale smoothie you made once, the result is gray goop. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2021
3/4 79% Black Widow (2021) The movie's vibe isn't like your average MCU entry at all, really. What it reminded me of are the many James Bond films where 007 goes rogue and cavorts around world cities seeking his revenge du jour. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2021
2.5/4 85% Werewolves Within (2021) "Werewolves Within" joins the rarified club of video game film adaptations that don't make me want to gouge my eyes out. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2021
1/4 59% F9 (2021) The series has been trudging along for 20 years (!!!), and boy it is showing its age. The tires are flat, the bumpers have rusted, this hunk of junk has at least a million miles on it. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2021
1/4 27% The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021) If it was better made, "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" would be your average bargain-bin action-comedy film. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2021
3/4 91% Luca (2021) For the most part... "Luca" is light and effervescent as a summertime Bellini, which is something parents can drink while the kids watch this. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2021
4/4 94% In the Heights (2021) Lin-Manuel Miranda has done it again! Again! - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2021
1.5/4 56% The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) The devil made me watch it! - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2021
2/4 49% Spirit Untamed (2021) More like "Spirit Uninteresting." - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2021
3.5/4 91% A Quiet Place Part II (2021) "Part II" is every bit as good and scary as its predecessor, and the characters, especially the kids, go to deeper and braver places. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 28, 2021
3.5/4 74% Cruella (2021) Enjoy "Cruella" as a decadent and exhilarating standalone, daaaarling. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 28, 2021
2/4 67% Army Of The Dead (2021) The best aspects of "Army of the Dead" are hindered by undue excess. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 21, 2021
1/4 26% The Woman in the Window (2021) You quickly grow weary of watching the performance, and don't sympathize with her plight at all. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 13, 2021
2/4 61% Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021) Jolie should take on more acting opportunities like this one, only with fewer firehoses. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 13, 2021
3.5/4 66% Wrath of Man (2021) "Wrath of Man" isn't as blatantly funny as "The Gentlemen" is, though it has its laughs, but it is taut and exhilarating without a single wasted moment. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 6, 2021
2.5/4 78% The Water Man (2021) A very nice movie that's a lot like a bunch of other very nice movies. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 6, 2021
2/4 48% Here Today (2021) Movies are allowed to be more than one thing - "Terminator" has robo killings and romance - but all those qualities must harmonize. "Here Today" is a mess. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 44% Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (2021) [E]ven with a star as charismatic and physically formidable as Jordan, audiences won't be hungry for a single sequel. - New York Post EDIT
