No Score Yet His Father's Voice (2019) While "His Father's Voice" is earnest and well-intentioned, the resulting film is dull, marred by amateur technique both in front of and behind the camera. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

80% Daddy Issues (2019) [Amara Cash's] frenetic style is the best part of "Daddy Issues," but it can't distract the audience from the film's larger problems. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

83% Someone Great (2019) While this debut film from "Sweet/Vicious" creator Jennifer Kaytin Robinson is a raunchy good time, don't discount its moving message about the lasting power of female friendship. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

No Score Yet Catching Sight of Thelma & Louise (2019) This documentary offers thoughtful insight throughout, but even faithful fans of the film may find its nearly 90-minute running time overlong. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2019
83% Who Would You Take to a Deserted Island? (A quién te llevarías a una isla desierta?) (2019) However, raw performances and Linares' intimate approach make "Who Would You Take to a Deserted Island?" more engaging in its second half than the first. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

77% The Perfect Date (2019) "The Perfect Date" feels engineered by Netflix algorithms. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2019
20% After (2019) The problems may lie in Todd's novel, but regardless, characters act illogically, as though written by someone who napped through most of Intro to Psych and skipped English 101 altogether. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

C+ 46% Little (2019) Little is not a great, or even a very good, movie, but it's full of wonderful moments, all boosted by the incredible talents of Martin, Rae, and Hall - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2019
B- 89% Missing Link (2019) Missing Link isn't a bad film when compared to most kids animated movies, but it falls so far short compared to its Laika peers. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019
No Score Yet The Sex Trip (2019) Sex Trip tries to tell its audience that what's inside is what matters, but this comedy is rotten at its core and sure to offend most people unlucky enough to watch it. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2019
48% Unplanned (2019) Writer-directors Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon spend more time making their talking points than developing their characters, who exist merely to make their arguments. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2019
60% Long Lost (2019) With its good use of a single location and just three characters, Long Lost almost works, though its fun twist would have felt fresher a decade ago. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2019
C- 47% Dumbo (2019) Tim Burton's Dumbo throws so much at the audience that nothing really sticks, leaving such a small impression for such a big movie. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
B No Score Yet It Started As a Joke (2019) It Started As A Joke is often as entertaining as a solid set from any one of the featured comedians, but it also has a serious streak in the insight it offers into Mirman's challenges off the stage. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2019
B 88% Sword of Trust (2019) Human moments punctuate and overlap with the sillier ones, giving Sword of Truth a sense of generosity and an emotional core in addition to its laughs. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2019
B- 100% Pink Wall (2019) Pink Wall rarely breaks new ground, but Tom Cullen's truly raw, intimate approach helps it feel fresher than it might have otherwise. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2019
40% Something (2019) As bland as its title, "Something" is a horror film with few scares and a mystery without answers. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2019
17% The Iron Orchard (2019) Though there are some well-framed shots from cinematographer Mathieu Plainfossé, the script from Gerry De Leon and director Ty Roberts is lifeless, covered in a layer of dust that the cast can't rouse it from. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

A 98% Apollo 11 (2019) Todd Douglas Miller relies almost entirely on archival footage and audio to share a previously unseen look at [the moon mission]. And it is absolutely jaw-dropping. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2019
40% Run the Race (2019) "Run the Race" lacks the specificity that would make it feel real to the audience. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2019
No Score Yet The Lears (2019) "The Lears" is a witlessly profane attempt at dark comedy that is beneath the talents of everyone on screen. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

36% Patrick (2019) Though the family-friendly comedy has all the good intentions of a motivational puppy poster, it unfortunately also has the same level of intelligence and plot. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2019
90% The Breaker Upperers (2018) [D]irectors, writers and stars Jackie van Beek and Madeline Sami still give this film a wild energy that's absolutely their own, with jokes that take the audience from giggles to cackles to all-out shrieks. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2019
B 69% Isn't It Romantic (2019) 'Isn't It Romantic' is often hilarious, veering between smart and silly, satire and sincerity with a bold energy that frequently works. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2019
B+ 100% Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins (2019) 'Raise Hell' preaches to the small choir that adored Ivins, but this documentary sings a beautiful new psalm that will reach new disciples and renew the follower faith like a tent revival. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2019
68% Happy Death Day 2U (2019) "Happy Death Day 2U" can't quite replicate the feelings of joy and discovery of the original, but Landon deserves credit for varying the tune, while still playing the hits that will please the fans of its predecessor. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2019
No Score Yet Pinsky (2016) It's as unfocused as its heroine, roving between subplots, but there's still plenty to admire in this frank, funny film. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
No Score Yet Darkness Visible (2019) Darkness Visible is disjointed and drags out for far too long, but it features some effectively creepy visuals. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
76% Holiday (2018) "Holiday" refuses to cast judgment on its protagonist with its stark cinematography and long takes, letting lead Victoria Carmen Sonne's subtle performance shine in this crime drama about imbalances of power. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
100% One Million American Dreams (2018) "One Million American Dreams" lacks a cohesive structure, but it is bound together by the tears and grief of the people left behind. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

B 69% Cold Pursuit (2019) This movie is not messing around, but there's a sense of fun amidst all its savagery. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2019
91% The Unicorn (2019) Though the premise in the script... might seem risqué to some... this is a sweet comedy built on awkwardness that gets more delighted giggles than shocked gasps. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2019
C- 22% Miss Bala (2019) Miss Bala fails both when judged on its own merits and when compared to its predecessor. Just like Gloria in the film itself, Gina Rodriguez is the only hero here. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2019
83% For Now (2017) The stars' improvisation leads to moments of humor and authenticity, but the overall result is an incomprehensible, often frustrating film that seems less well-planned than the characters' own trip. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
A- 93% High Flying Bird (2019) "High Flying Bird" reminds the audience why we're lucky one of the greatest living directors is still in the business. - The Playlist EDIT

B 86% Adam (2019) This gentle comedy likely won't achieve a big level of chatter, but there's value in its earnest and authentic take on the coming-of-age film. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2019
No Score Yet King of Beasts (2019) [T]he documentary lacks narrative clarity with little explanation of who's who in his hunting group, as though someone forgot to add identifications in post-production. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2019
C 34% King of Thieves (2019) Where King of Thieves fails its heralded cast is in its shifts in tone. We're promised a fun ride with Caine in the driver's seat, but the trip goes downhill too quickly. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2019
50% In Like Flynn (2019) [W]ith its incoherent, episodic script, "In Like Flynn" lacks the worth of even a minor Flynn film. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2019
C 19% Serenity (2019) Serenity knows it's trash, but that's not to say that it's not entertaining trash. But, still, that isn't enough for a recommendation. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2019
No Score Yet Unbridled (2019) "Unbridled" stumbles further with clumsy product placement, making the film seem less sincere in its efforts despite its good intentions. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2019
No Score Yet The Heat: A Kitchen (R)evolution (2019) Both awe-inspiring and mouth-watering, "The Heat: A Kitchen (R)evolution" celebrates seven female chefs forging ahead in a male-dominated industry. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2019
C 39% Close (2019) There's a suggestion of a better movie in Close that makes it especially clear - and depressing - that Netflix is merely a content factory, churning out what it thinks people want to see. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2019
C 41% The Upside (2019) Though anchored by strong performances, The Upside stumbles along thanks to a bumbling script that's devoid of any originality. - The Playlist EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2019
84% Girl (2018) It feels exploitative, rather than empathetic. But it's the irresponsible handling of the film's final, shocking scenes that is the most problematic. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
