40% El Camino Christmas (2017) No carols are sung. No Santa is seen, and the decorations are few and far in-between. This is more of an anti-Christmas, anti-feel-good flick, but it's one you might want to watch more than once. - Daily Journal (Kankakee, IL) EDIT

84% Win It All (2017) Jake Johnson brings a type of charisma and serious humor that's no different than his past roles in New Girl and Drinking Buddies. His way of acting really helps to tell a very real story of a man on a downward spiral. - Daily Journal (Kankakee, IL) EDIT
