69% Crooked House (2017) Irons more than holds his own at the center of this swirling mystery, and Martini proves an enchanting leading lady, but the real draws are Close and Anderson, who bring a ferocious zest to their over-the-top characters.‐ Los Angeles Times

64% M.F.A. (2017) Noelle is a millennial Dirty Harry, tackling the social problems that face this generation in a story that's outsized in nature but metaphorically pierces right at the heart of the matter.‐ Los Angeles Times

23% Austin Found (2017) The cast is rounded out with likable comedians, but this fable can't decide if it's going to be deliciously bad or morally upstanding.‐ Los Angeles Times

3/5 31% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Pitch Perfect 3 is so breezy it's completely weightless, but it manages to deliver just enough of the goods.‐ Tribune News Service

26% Father Figures (2017) Moving images were projected, along with recorded sound, which indicates it is a movie, but the effect was so listless, low-energy and profoundly unentertaining that I jotted down in my notes "what even IS this?"‐ Tribune News Service

63% Kaleidoscope (2017) "Kaleidoscope" is brilliantly crafted and performed, but it's a bit too taken with its own muddling of facts and form to truly hook into. ‐ Los Angeles Times

55% The Greatest Showman (2017) a profoundly confused and muddled film, with a story that's at once too thin and too busy, with everything pasted into place using a mixture of frantic pop music and Hugh Jackman's flop sweat.‐ Tribune News Service

100% Wexford Plaza (2017) It's a unique approach to storytelling and character building, and it signals [Joyce] Wong as a major talent to watch.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
75% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Their cognitive dissonance is what gives Jumanji its humor, and the film relies on the star personas of Johnson, Hart, Black and Gillan to deliver it.‐ Los Angeles Times

70% Ferdinand (2017) With a lovely voice performance from Cena, the spirit of Ferdinand does shine through. But the rest of the story filler is mostly forgettable.‐ Tribune News Service

30% Wonder Wheel (2017) As we watch Allen worry and nitpick over the way women fret over aging, painting Ginny as pathetic, jealous, insecure, and clownish, it's dull, unoriginal, and offensive. Frankly, we've have enough Woody Allen takes on this subject. ‐ Tribune News Service

3.5/4 90% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) As indebted to the previous installments and "Star Wars" canon as it is to classic Westerns, sword-and-sandal epics and martial arts films.... it's the blend of reverence for its roots and embrace of the new that makes "The Last Jedi" a triumph.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 75% Hollow in the Land (2017) It's a rough neck Shakespearean tragedy that makes for a fine showcase for [Dianna] Agron, and proves a sharp directorial debut for filmmaker [Scooter] Corkle.‐ Tribune News Service

3.5/4 89% I, Tonya (2018) Dives into the swirling narratives surrounding the scandal-prone figure skater, and dredges up something that ultimately, feels real. Shockingly, it also feels redemptive.‐ Tribune News Service

90% Princess Cyd (2017) As comfortable to slip into as an afternoon in the sun, as satisfying as a late-night piece of cake, Princess Cyd is a jewel of a film that plumbs thematic depths far below its surface.‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 92% The Disaster Artist (2017) In a kooky yet vulnerable and heartfelt performance, Franco gets right at the heart of what makes Wiseau a true hero - his sheer willingness to try - and that is what makes "The Disaster Artist" work so well.‐ Tribune News Service

4/4 85% Darkest Hour (2017) While "Darkest Hour" is a showcase for Oldman's incredible performance, Wright's aesthetic visually transports the viewer, the images heavy with subtext and meaning. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2017
No Score Yet The View From Here (2017) It turns out a flawed film can still be profoundly affecting if it hits you in the right place on the right day, as the romantic drama "The View From Here" proves.‐ Los Angeles Times

4/4 97% Coco (2017) "Coco" uses the vibrant colors and style of the holiday to spin an imaginative tale rich in tradition and culture, while beautifully celebrating family.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Nov 21, 2017
4/4 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) A barn burner, a bracing shot of whiskey downed while spoiling for a fight, a cathartic wail against the zeitgeist of rape culture and state brutality. It's a rallying cry, a right hook to the jaw, and wow, does it ever hurt so good.‐ Tribune News Service

100% Soufra (2017) To consider the long-standing Bourj al Barajneh is to consider the true humanity of refugees, who have hopes, dreams, lives to live and work to do. "Soufra" efficiently and effectively illustrates those ideas.‐ Los Angeles Times

40% Justice League (2017) Finally, DC's superheroes are assembled on screen at last. It's just a shame that the resulting film is a chaotic, baffling mess.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) There are moments when it's deliriously silly and delightful, and others where it misses the mark. And while at times it feels like too many dads, they eventually all learn to "co-dad," in some kind of harmony.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) The beginning is a rollicking ride that will likely leave audiences craving more Christie, and here's hoping we do see Branagh return as Poirot - his rendition is too fun to be cut short.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Nov 7, 2017
4/4 99% Lady Bird (2017) A finely wrought, deeply felt mash note to Gerwig's hometown of Sacramento, and the rare film about teenage life that puts equal weight on the dark, sad and tough parts, as it does on the joyous, raucous, euphoric moments. ‐ Tribune News Service

29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Female audiences deserve better movies than this.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet The Devil's Dolls (2016) The Devil's Dolls is a pastiche of derivative nonsense that only reminds you of the better films (The Shining, The Exorcist) that it seeks to copy.‐ Los Angeles Times

88% Mansfield 66/67 (2017) It's not an intimate portrait of the woman, but a celebration of the sex-positive, taboo-breaking image she created for herself and the way she rocked American culture during a hugely transitional moment.‐ Los Angeles Times

70% Suck It Up (2017) Directed with a fluid, crisp sense of energy and musicality by Canning... Carter's performance Her performance brings real lived-in emotion to this charming friendship tale.‐ Los Angeles Times

2.5/4 28% All I See Is You (2017) for all of Forster's experimentation, and his willingness to prod at the strange, jagged edges of this relationship, he ultimately rejects darkness. ‐ Los Angeles Times

2.5/4 77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) Despite its storytelling inconsistencies, the film reveals a harrowing veteran experience when it focuses simply on the men themselves.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
1/4 28% Suburbicon (2017) Irritating, faux-edgy, tonally wack, strained, unfunny, and such a colossally tone-deaf misfire‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2017
7% The Snowman (2017) With a perplexing tale and some very odd creative choices, it's so easy to laugh at The Snowman, but this kind of tale shouldn't inspire laughter.‐ Tribune News Service

71% Kill Me Please (Mate-me por favor) (2017) ... proves to be a new classic from first frame to last.‐ Los Angeles Times

58% The Strange Ones (2018) It's an artful, boundary-pushing debut from Radcliffe and Wolkstein, with breakthrough performances from Freedson-Jackson, and Pettyfer, perhaps signaling a new direction in his career.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% The Legend Of 420 (2017) It's a bit like having a conversation with a stoner: excited if a bit unfocused.‐ Los Angeles Times

4/4 88% Only the Brave (2017) The majesty of these images is in service of the story and the people in it - a true-life tale that will grasp onto your heart and hold on long after the credits roll. ‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 83% Marshall (2017) For a film simply called "Marshall," you do expect to get a wider slice of his life, which is relegated to onscreen text. In fact, he ultimately becomes an ensemble player in his own eponymous film.‐ Tribune News Service

62% The Foreigner (2017) Feels as if a writer tossed a few darts at a board labeled with aging action stars and various terrorist groups to construct a script. Jackie Chan vs. the Irish Republican Army? That could work. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
4/4 86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) In "Professor Marston and the Wonder Women," you'll discover the surprising psychology behind Wonder Woman, and perhaps a newfound appreciation for her powers to crumble social norms with sensuality. Truly, it is a wonder of a movie.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
87% American Made (2017) It skitters and jumps, shivers and boot-scoots, never, ever sitting still. You could say it's like "Blow," on well, blow. But there's a breezy sunniness to this film, which looks like a faded snapshot reclaimed from an '80s photo album.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
46% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) The film is done in the classic 2-D animation style and embraces the flat, colorful, Saturday-morning cartoon look and feel.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
41% The Mountain Between Us (2017) The romantic fantasy tendencies hijack this otherwise interesting unconventional love story in order to become a sort of bizarre Idris Elba fan fiction.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) A meditative and moving film, sumptuously photographed by legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins in the finest and most astonishing work of his career.‐ Tribune News Service

55% Elizabeth Blue (2017) There are times when "Elizabeth Blue" drifts into "edu-tainment" territory, though the intent to unflinchingly reveal the struggle of mental illness is sincere.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
100% Unrest (2017) It's a film that's remarkably intimate, deeply edifying and a stirring call to action.‐ Los Angeles Times

91% Our Souls at Night (2017) Those who stop to savor it could find themselves richly rewarded in witnessing this pair together again on screen.‐ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

15% Friend Request (2017) So gloriously dumb that it is surprisingly a whole lot of fun.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2.5/4 81% Brad's Status (2017) Some of [Ben] Stiller's best performances have been in roles where he inhabits a kind, gentle neuroticism, uncomfortable in his own skin but never wanting to make anyone else too uncomfortable. ‐ Tribune News Service
