No Score Yet Bernie the Dolphin (2018) Marine mammal-obsessed kids might like the titular cetacean and his family, but grown-ups will want to find something else to watch.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet Elephants (2018) "Elephants" almost works, but it self-destructs with as much frequency as its damaged characters.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2018
No Score Yet Stadium Anthems (2018) Its incoherent script is packed with more "Star Wars" references than Kevin Smith's entire oeuvre, but none of the laughs.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Meow Wolf: Origin Story (2018) Other than showing moments of in-fighting, "Meow Wolf: Origin Story" is an almost entirely positive exploration of the collective and their art - but it's an effective one.‐ Los Angeles Times

B+ 69% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Mary Queen of Scots is no staid, stuffy period drama, as restrained as the breathing of corseted women. Instead, this a vital film, whose lace-trimmed bosom heaves with life.‐ The Playlist

No Score Yet Bali: Beats of Paradise (2018) It's entertaining but slight, particularly as it bulks up with the post-credits inclusion of the video.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Family in Transition (2018) Director Ofir Trainin captures the couple and their kids in authentic moments, revealing the challenges that each family member faces.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
No Score Yet Madness, Farewell (2018) There's a streak of dark, wry humor in Benjamin Font's debut as a director, but its (small) wins are due to its concept and the lead performance from Charlene deGuzman.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet Who Will Save the Roses? (2020) Individual moments work, but there's little to tie them together in a cohesive narrative.‐ Los Angeles Times

88% Lez Bomb (2018) Overwritten and overlit, "Lez Bomb" frequently undercuts its own charms.‐ Los Angeles Times

86% 3100: Run and Become (2018) Rawal's well-shot film is engaging - particularly for those with an interest in running and/or meditation - but the lack of balance between each of the four stories ultimately throws the film off.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet The First Patient (2018) "The First Patient" may be too graphic for some viewers. But underneath the layers of formaldehyde-treated flesh, there's real heart and deserved wonder at the human body.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2018
82% Overlord (2018) It doesn't shy away from the pain of their victims here, but the movie does a good job of separating the scenes of horror at the on-screen cruelty with the whoops and cheers in the more celebratory moments.‐ The Playlist

20% Nobody's Fool (2018) Even with all of Haddish's hard work, she still can't clean up the mess she's landed in.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
0% Marfa Girl 2 (2018) Clark has progressed little in the years since the film's predecessor, but he's learned one thing: at least "Marfa Girl 2" is 30 minutes shorter than the original.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Weed the People (2018) Beyond its plea for research, the documentary is largely hopeful, but for balance could include more anecdotes and details of when the treatment doesn't have the desired results.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
86% Unlovable (2018) "Unlovable" is the rare indie film that gets just the right level of twee.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
No Score Yet The Health of Hope (2018) The documentary lacks the polish of films made by a more experienced team; however, its endearing cast of students and teachers largely make up for its flaws.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
20% 5 Weddings (2018) Inorganic and implausible, this Bollywood-inflected rom-com features little comedy and even less romance.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
0% Solis (2018) The minimalist approach and premise of "Solis" should work, but the execution in the script keeps the viewer disengaged, wishing the pod would move more quickly toward its final destination.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
D+ 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Despite its intentions to get close to Mercury, Bohemian Rhapsody is as intimate as a sold-out stadium show, with none of the accompanying power.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2018
A- 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) The film evokes a range of emotions befitting a childhood lesson on feelings.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
B+ 96% Three Identical Strangers (2018) Putting aside that need for clarity (and many viewers may be fine with what it presents), Three Identical Strangers is one of the most entertaining documentaries in years.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
40% Brampton's Own (2018) It's better than a number of indie films in its craft - particularly the thoughtfully composed cinematography from Kieran Murphy - but a flawed script ultimately keeps it from eking out a win.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
11% Change in the Air (2018) The gentle drama "Change in the Air" is buoyed by its sweet spirit and a strong cast, but it ultimately tries too hard to win our affections.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
100% Liyana (2018) The children's stories alone would have been compelling, but illustrating them in this medium adds even more depth, nuance and emotion.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
B- 46% Destination Wedding (2018) Destination Wedding is bitter, bubbly and ultimately refreshing, the Aperol Spritz to your sickly sweet Amaretto Sour.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2018
B+ 86% Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite) (2018) This is quieter and more subdued work than most viewers will expect from [HonorĂ©], but it's ultimately more rewarding as well.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2018
86% Wobble Palace (2018) Kotlyarenko and Nekrasova shine a glaring iPhone flashlight on their characters' - and their generation's - flaws.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2018
80% Chasing the Blues (2018) The characters at the black heart of this bleak comedy are consumed by their need for a rare record, but none of their passion translates to the audience.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
No Score Yet The Samuel Project (2018) Like a history lesson delivered by an excited and affable - if inexperienced - teacher, "The Samuel Project" means well and will likely move audiences, despite its own undermining efforts.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
B+ 87% All About Nina (2018) "An excellent entry in the romantic comedy format that doesn't lose sight of who its heroine is the moment she falls for someone."‐ The Playlist

62% Summer '03 (2018) It never transcends its teen movie origins to become something more.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2018
No Score Yet Maggie Black (2018) Maguire brings her own challenges with anxiety and depression to both the lead role and the script, but the good intentions don't create a good film with this psychology-driven drama.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2018
38% Cruise (2018) Siegel's second directorial outing is better as an exercise in nostalgia than as a film, but it deserves some praise for its faithful recreation of a time and a place.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2018
No Score Yet The Storyteller (2018) While "The Storyteller" aspires to be a feature-length Hallmark card, it only manages dollar-store sentimentality in its plot and platitudes.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
No Score Yet Painless (2018) This character-driven thriller gives specificity to small scenes, engaging the audience in each moment.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
85% A Boy. A Girl. A Dream. (2018) Not every directorial choice or camera movement works, but this indie drama shines in the silences.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
46% Where Hands Touch (2018) Asante usually excels at sharing stories audiences haven't seen before, so it's unfortunate that this one feels so dully familiar.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
61% Bel Canto (2018) A moving meditation on the power of love, music and proximity.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
53% MDMA (Cardinal X) (2018) "MDMA"... doesn't fully communicate the context of Angie's experience priors to the film, keeping us removed from the character and the movie as a whole.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
No Score Yet Lost Fare (2018) "Lost Fare" wants to inspire, but its attempts gets mired in a leaden script.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
73% The Ranger (2018) Ultimately "The Ranger" promises more than it delivers.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
A- 91% They'll Love Me When I'm Dead (2018) A cinephiles' delight.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2018
No Score Yet Last Curtain Call (2018) "Last Curtain Call" may lament the emptiness of its protagonist's hedonistic and selfish lifestyle, but the film itself offers few pleasures with its poor pacing and cliched script.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
75% Songwriter (2018) Whether a veiled ad for Sheeran's discography, MacBooks (no obscured logos here) or Apple Music itself, this Apple Music-exclusive documentary still inspires.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
50% Down a Dark Hall (2018) The scares might not satisfy those old enough to vote, but it should provide mild chills for its target audience.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
