D 17% Sidney Hall (2017) Sidney Hall, a film which offers a mystery that never feels mysterious, falls so flat one is bewildered as to why and how such a project could even be green lit.‐ The Film Stage

B- 25% Rebel in the Rye (2016) It is strange that in a film about J.D. Salinger the best performance doesn't even come from the guy playing him.‐ The Film Stage

C 60% Newness (2017) Newness will occasionally remind one of the raw talent Doremus has, but a screenplay like this one leaves him narratively stagnant. ‐ The Film Stage

4/10 31% The Yellow Birds (2017) The Yellow Birds should have been an exciting, intense war movie, but has instead been turned into Full Metal Jacket for dummies.‐ We Got This Covered

B+ 97% The Love Witch (2016) Biller proves to be an auteur in the truest sense of the word: she directed, wrote, produced, and edited the film, and created many of the spectacular costumes and set decorations. She also, quite possibly, has created a new cult classic.‐ The Playlist

B+ 92% Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience (2016) A tone poem that not only pays tribute to planet Earth and the life that inhabits it, but marvels at how this miracle was created.‐ The Playlist

B+ 100% Wakefield (2016) Wakefield would not be as fascinating if its central performance wasn't as fully fleshed out as Cranston makes it.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2016

Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2016
B 82% Denial (2016) While Denial doesn't do anything new on a technical side, it is fully aware of its gripping plot, one that welcomely avoids pushing its inherent clichés to the forefront of its story.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2016
B 80% Barry (2016) A serious and refined drama which has the feel of a political firecracker. ‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2016
B- 93% Blue Jay (2016) Blue Jay poses important questions about adulthood without delving too far into concrete answers.‐ The Film Stage

Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
D+ 64% LBJ (2016) [Reiner] has a central performance to back him up, but fails to register many of the most compelling aspects of President Johnson's history.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
C+ 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Deepwater Horizon reminds us just how talented an action director Berg is and how often substance becomes a second thought for the director.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
C+ 80% Maudie (2017) It's a predictable romance that nearly overshadows the detailed, fascinating character drama within.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2016
D 23% The Secret Scripture (2016) It's a mess that might seem genuine and well-intentioned, but gives out the feeling that its creators have lost touch with what made Barry's book praised in the first place.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
C+ 31% The Promise (2017) When The Promise sags with cluttered, obvious tropes that have similarly downgraded countless war movies before it, it's a disappointment.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
C+ 86% Lion (2016) Davis' talent feels hammered down by Luke Davies' screenplay adaptation that ultimately meanders around until it comes to a lackluster halt.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
B- 35% Blair Witch (2016) It's a film that not only goes back to the basics, but seems to deliberately steal much of what made the original such a horrific treat.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
C 79% Embers (2015) Attempts to be a complicated dissection of a possible world not too far ahead of us, but it lacks the imagination to make us soar along with its vision.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
C- 36% Skiptrace (2016) [Jackie Chan] brings energy to a film that desperately needs any kind of life, but there is only so much [he] can do.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2016
B+ 76% Lights Out (2016) Sandberg delights in finding new, twisted ways to use our fear of the dark to pull us into his web of scares.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
B+ 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) The tough subject matter doesn't detract from the fact that the picture and its poignant elements make for an unadorned delight.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
B 91% The Witness (2016) As the documentary goes along, it becomes clear that Kitty's murder is less about what actually happened, and more about the shadow it has continued to cast on Bill.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
4.5/10 71% Holy Hell (2016) The foundation is there for a good documentary to happen, but the fact that amateurish filmmaking got in the way of the story really does a major disservice to the overall story.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2016
6/10 93% I, Daniel Blake (2016) I, Daniel Blake is a problematic, but important critique of the British social system.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 22, 2016
7.5/10 67% Staying Vertical (Rester vertical) (2017) Staying Vertical is an amalgam of cinematic love, it brims with the notion that anything and everything is possible in cinema.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 22, 2016
75% The BFG (2016) It is an adamantly well-done action adventure yarn that boasts top-notch special effects and real heart, but it's Spielberg and it's Cannes and expectations are too high.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 22, 2016
92% Toni Erdmann (2016) ... the flawed, scrambling, ambitious narrative structure of the film does it no disservice. Instead, it's a pure delight ... ‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 22, 2016
94% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) ... the film is a handsomely opaque, overtly familiar, sexually evocative romance that never bores you and yet, throughout, I felt like something was missing.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 22, 2016
8/10 98% Hell or High Water (2016) Mackenzie is about to hit the big time with this one as Hollywood will no doubt be knocking at his door with a lot more opportunities.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
8/10 79% Personal Shopper (2017) ... the film is meant to be absorbed for what it is: A taut, terrific venture into the unknown.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
8/10 79% American Honey (2016) There's an overall sense of unimaginable freedom in Arnold's filmmaking. It's a vital, great movie that could probably use a trim.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
20% I Saw the Light (2016) It could have used more tunes and less blues.‐ The Young Folks
Read More | Posted May 5, 2016
9% God's Not Dead 2 (2016) To call God's Not Dead 2 "bad" would be doing this abomination of a movie a disservice. It is not only a bad movie, but in fact it's more than that.‐ The Young Folks
