92% Hannah Gadsby: Douglas (2020) Upon first watch, I'll admit I did not fully grasp its joke. But this is a show that not only rewards patience, but also re-examination. - The Daily Beast EDIT

92% Uncut Gems (2019) What is there to say? Adam Sandler gives the performance of his career in a sea of diamond-encrusted Furbies. - The Daily Beast EDIT

63% Sinister (2012) Just a straightforward horror flick about snuff films and a house with a bunch of child ghosts in the attic-and Ethan Hawke! And Vincent D'Onofrio! - The Daily Beast EDIT

92% The Nice Guys (2016) Who knew Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe would make such a side-splitting pair? - The Daily Beast EDIT

99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) With each passing day, Bong Joon-ho's class-conscious thriller about a family that lives in a sub-basement-and the blissfully naïve rich family they wind up working for-becomes even more prescient. - The Daily Beast EDIT

88% Blazing Saddles (1974) One of the best Western parodies ever made. The powerhouse duo of Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder does not disappoint. - The Daily Beast EDIT

96% The Full Monty (1997) This movie walked so that Magic Mike could run. Social commentary? Check. Unlikely pathos? Check. Male strippers? Six checks! - The Daily Beast EDIT

85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) Come for Ralph Fiennes trying to coach a hopeless Alden Ehrenreich in the art of saying "Would that it were so simple" and stay for Channing Tatum hamming it up with a fluffy pooch! - The Daily Beast EDIT

81% Despicable Me (2010) The Steve Carell-starring animated comedy is an instant classic, and for anyone with kids, this might buy you a couple hours' peace. - The Daily Beast EDIT

97% The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) If you've never gotten into spaghetti Westerns, there's no time like the present to give it a go with one of the best. - The Daily Beast EDIT

35% Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones (2019) Ultimately, though, it feels like stale work from a comedian who was once known for truly boundary-pushing comedy - the kind that actually understood nuance, particularly where famous and powerful men were concerned. - Vanity Fair EDIT

83% Crawl (2019) Its sensibilities are schlocky, but its execution is immaculate, thanks to precise pacing, a deft command of tension, and cinematography that showcases the carnage from every possible angle. - Vanity Fair EDIT

88% Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear's 'All in the Family' and 'The Jeffersons' (2019) Yes, the conceit was gimmicky-but by the end, ABC had pulled off an entertaining, strangely touching tribute to television as a medium. - Vanity Fair EDIT

92% Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable (2018) However un-relatable DeGeneres might claim to be, her special feels like a joyous invitation; perhaps the next one won't take 15 years to arrive. - Vanity Fair EDIT
