3/4 No Score Yet Paper Year (2018) Slight but intriguing...‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) Hathaway's screwball performance toys wickedly with star-system self-parody and keeps the movie chugging along. But it does little more than chug.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 85% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) If it weren't for Binoche's warmth, the film might easily sink beneath the stereotype of French culture as overly talky and sex obsessed.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 70% Adrift (2018) Adrift is a movie throbbing with an audience's anxiety - and yet it is not particularly dramatic.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The heavy Star Wars legacy sits lightly on Mr. Ehrenreich's shoulders in a Disney-Lucasfilm movie that is finally having fun.‐ Globe and Mail

1/4 53% Book Club (2018) In Holderman's ineffectual hands, this leads to comedy so tired and morals so sentimental it's sometimes hard to keep awake in Book Club.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 93% RBG (2018) Ginsburg emerges as a woman of remarkable intelligence and fortitude - who can get by on very little sleep.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 86% Kusama: Infinity (2018) At the height of Kusama hysteria in Toronto, the film will make highly informative viewing both for those who get it - and for those who don't.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 69% The Seagull (2018) As film, the results are often fabulous.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
3/4 No Score Yet Timon of Athens (2018) As always, stage pyrotechnics don't translate well to film. Still, this Timon makes a lesser Shakespearean play highly watchable.‐ Globe and Mail

1/4 33% I Feel Pretty (2018) Schumer's actual chutzpah, so boldly showcased in her stand-up and sketch comedy, is not enough to carry this offensive conceit.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
1/4 52% Rampage (2018) Rampage doesn't have much to offer: The plot is cursory, the dialogue is repetitive and the psychology is cheap.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
3/4 83% Blockers (2018) It's a reliable laugh machine that features enough jabs at contemporary mores, alongside a discreet social conscience and some successfully female-centric comedy, that it rises above the inevitable chug-and-vomit jokes.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
3/4 74% Final Portrait (2018) The rare biopic of a visual artist that considers the dilemma of the art more seriously than it considers the drama of the life.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
2/4 46% Allure (2018) The drama is memorable but often feels grimly unpleasant rather than moving.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
3/4 74% C'est la vie (Le sens de la fête) (2017) It's clear that the French writing-directing team of Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano is capable of taking the genre to new heights.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
2/4 86% Mary Goes Round (2017) McGlynn's quiet approach may be admirable, but it falls awkwardly between two stools, proving itself neither dramatic enough nor fun enough to raise up the drunken Mary.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
3/4 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) The multilayered, cross-cultural results, especially in the postapocalyptic, quasi-Rube Goldberg environment of Trash Island, are continually inventive and always delightful.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
4/4 96% Foxtrot (2018) It is both delicate allegory and dark indictment.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
2/4 40% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) The movie continually reduces rather than expands its source material and becomes less and less convincing as Meg rather too rapidly saves the day.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
4/4 81% The Party (2018) Potter's comic dissection of the London intelligentsia's personal and political angst is completely of the moment.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
4/4 No Score Yet Shiners (2018) Full of poignant tales and offbeat characters, this investigation of the shoe-shining profession delivers all you could ask of the doc experience: It's informative, entertaining, poignant - and globe-trotting, too.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
3/4 77% Before We Vanish (Sanpo suru shinryakusha) (2018) As an experiment in blending the minute character observations of Kurosawa's dramas into a pure genre plot, Before We Vanish does succeed.‐ Globe and Mail

1/4 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Did someone say "freed" already? Yes, please. Red. Red. Red.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
3/4 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) A quietly honest centre never wavers.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
2.5/4 54% 12 Strong (2018) Put aside your hindsight and at least you'll be rewarded with some invigorating action.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
2.5/4 75% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) It offers no easy solutions or quick uplift, yet there's still a movie-of-the-week feel to the proceedings, which seem to offer topicality without context.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
3/4 100% Paddington 2 (2018) Even in a sequel, Bond's furry metaphor survives its animation intact.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
3/4 87% The Post (2018) Spielberg offers a tight, lucid and highly satisfying account of the Pentagon Papers from the point of view of the Post and its publisher, Kay Graham.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2018
2/4 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) But gradually, Johnson's many additions become too much of a good thing and The Last Jedi grows crowded, busy and long.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
31% Wonder Wheel (2017) Whatever its director's motivations, a work so contemptuous of its own heroine is always going to border on the offensive.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
3/4 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) Mainly, the fancy at the centre of The Man Who Invented Christmas provides an unusually kinetic literary biography as the writer races against the clock to master the voices of his obstreperous characters in time for the 25th.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
2.5/4 77% Last Flag Flying (2017) The film ... seems uncertain of its own unusualness as Linklater eventually opts for a piece that is little more than a road movie and its rhythm stalls.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
3/4 97% Coco (2017) None of Coco's few flaws can fatally undermine the film because it is, most of all, a smart and enduring piece of storytelling with a satisfyingly twisting narrative and richly complex theme. ‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 40% Justice League (2017) Don't rule out the possibility that a movie dedicated to Aquaman (on the schedule for 2018) or the Flash might be fun, but the Justice League itself needs to disband.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
2/4 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Branagh fusses about with unusual camera angles, improbable outdoor settings and lame action sequences, anything to avoid getting on with the obvious, lining up a surfeit of suspects in the dining car and twisting the truth out of them.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
3.5/4 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) McDonagh has created a comic tragedy that ducks and feints, defying expectations with many admirable and some less convincing results.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
2/4 29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Apparently, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, working the distaff side of their Hangover sensibility once again, have no better idea for a plot than a visit from grandma, so they simply repeat it three times.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
2/4 87% Only the Brave (2017) It's a movie intent on telling us the hotshots were heroes, without sufficiently dramatizing either their professional decisions or their private lives.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
2/4 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) An occasionally sentimental melodrama with a very sour aftertaste.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
3.5/4 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) The rare sequel that truly merits its existence, updating and expanding the themes of the 1982 original to bring them from the 20th century into the 21st.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
3/4 91% Human Flow (2017) Ai simply bears witness in a film that, like many of his sculptural pieces, establishes a creative tension between its giant scale and its individual pieces.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
2.5/4 66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) It's a neatly executed lark but one that eventually becomes ensnared in the colonialism it seeks to expose.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
1/4 82% Pyewacket (2018) The heavy-handed score, narrow performances and weak dialogue all fail to justify a provocative ending that overturns the exorcising conventions of the genre.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
0.5/4 34% American Assassin (2017) American Assassin offers you two competing philosophies that are equally unappetizing: cold-hearted, government-sanctioned professional killing or hot-blooded vigilante professional killing.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/4 100% The Seen and Unseen (2017) The Seen and Unseen charts the territory of childhood trauma with notable insight and grace. ‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
3/4 66% Breathe (2017) Serkis achieves a careful balance with a film that tastefully covers some delicate territory.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
1.5/4 20% If You Saw His Heart (Si tu voyais son coeur) (2017) This debut feature from Joan Chemla begins with a riotous Romani wedding impressively filmed, but soon gets stuck in a grim flop house.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
3/4 67% The Garden (Sommerhäuser) (2017) The cinematic escape, that sense one has actually visited this time, this place and these people, is remarkable.‐ Globe and Mail
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
2.5/4 85% Darkest Hour (2017) The magnificent clutter of Buckingham Palace or the swirling staircases of Whitehall begin to read like empty gestures in film that, for all that Oldman soldiers away at it, cannot make Churchill's dilemma dramatic.‐ Globe and Mail
