43% Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back) (2018) Dead in a Week has that same wonderfully weird tone as End of the F***ing World, as it's ultimately an action comedy centered around death and the goal of death. - Decider EDIT

98% Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé (2019) If you somehow didn't see the Coachella performance last year, on a live stream official or otherwise, you should take in this incredible display of talent. - Decider EDIT

94% Time For Ilhan (2018) Omar is the future of politics, so while this likely will not be the last documentary made about her, it's a great first glimpse into a fierce political force in the making. - Decider EDIT

33% The Holiday Calendar (2018) This movie is like a sugar cookie: you know exactly what you're getting, and it has all the right ingredients (love, magic, presents), but it would've been even better with a little frosting on top, is all. - Decider EDIT

30% Elliot The Littlest Reindeer (2018) While muddled with some unnecessary minor storylines as well as cliché yet sweet themes, with animation this cute and voice performances this funny, Elliot The Littlest Reindeer is ultimately a bit of a unique take on classic Christmas characters. - Decider EDIT

No Score Yet Ballet Now (2018) It's not one of those documentaries that's going to make you change your lifestyle or keep you up at night. It's simply a really pretty celebration of people that put a lot of hard work into their passion. - Decider EDIT

No Score Yet Russell Howard: Recalibrate (2017) Howard gets expertly self-deprecating, a bit raunchy at times, and he's not a soft-spoken comedian by any means. - Decider EDIT

62% Most Likely to Murder (2018) ...manages to be weird and silly and creepy in all the right places, and is simply a good time that will keep you guessing just as much as it has you laughing. - Decider EDIT

81% Tiny Shoulders, Rethinking Barbie (2018) Tiny Shoulders accomplishes what most good documentaries set out to: make viewers think about both sides of the story and come to their own conclusions. - Decider EDIT

87% That's Not Me (2017) 'That's Not Me' manages to remain as hopeful as it is grounded and as cheeky as it is awkward... - Decider EDIT

32% Irreplaceable You (2018) Irreplaceable You seamlessly volleys back and forth between shameless emotional porn and super sentimental storytelling in a way that makes you first forgive it and then savor it. - Decider EDIT

43% When We First Met (2018) When We First Met earns points for knowing when to stick to the rom-com guidelines while still inserting a good amount of comedy into a shaky premise. - Decider EDIT

75% Unleashed (2017) ... completely and utterly ridiculous, reaching a new level of silly that it proudly owns. - Decider EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
No Score Yet Opening Night (2016) If you're in the mood for a raunchier, even more screwball comedy than Pitch Perfect, Opening Night just might be your jam. - Decider EDIT

39% Why Him? (2016) ... it's simply the classic battle of Family Man vs. Freak Show, and it is 100% one of the funniest films of the last year. - Decider EDIT

22% Step Sisters (2018) ...while the stigma of skin color starts to fade in time for the film to make its statement on different worlds (from race to gender to class) relating and bonding over what they have in common, it's just a bit too late. - Decider EDIT

100% Mr. Roosevelt (2017) What Noel Wells done here with Mr. Roosevelt is not just impressive as a filmmaker, but as a storyteller (and deliverer) she's completely portrayed...a generation. - Decider EDIT

No Score Yet CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap (2015) The need for women in leadership positions, to champion and help young women join and stay in these jobs, is at a desperate high. Like coding itself, CODE might sound intimidating, but everyone is encouraged to give it a try. - Decider EDIT

71% Newness (2017) Written by Ben York Jones, Newness offers an accurate portrayal of modern millennial dating habits, without quite commenting on the apps, the indecisiveness, the insatiability, and hookup culture as a whole. - Decider EDIT

80% Opening Night (2017) Opening Night is just the right amount of pervy fun to make it a worthwhile watch due to this ensemble...and yes, specifically because of JC. - Decider EDIT

No Score Yet Oh, Hello On Broadway (2017) Witnessing these two work is as enjoyable as the many, many jokes they've snuck into the show. - Decider EDIT

No Score Yet War Dog: A Soldier's Best Friend (2017) You don't have to be a dog person to find HBO's latest documentary enthralling. - Decider EDIT

50% Christmas Inheritance (2017) It might not become a classic you return to every December, but ultimately it remains a reliable Christmas romance that still manages to summon butterflies in your stomach where it counts. - Decider EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
70% A Christmas Prince (2017) ... it's everything you want a holiday film to be: cheesy, hopeful, a little bit ridiculous, and overall as warm and toasty as the fireplace you're watching it next to. - Decider EDIT
