3/5 No Score Yet The Breaker Upperers (2018) Madeleine Sami and Jackie van Beek are worth the price of admission, but The Breaker Upperers is a significantly flawed, inconsistent, creaky comedy.‐ Black Girl Nerds

4/5 80% Ready Player One (2018) A remarkable crowd pleaser that immeasurably improves upon the book, full of wacked-out dazzling visuals but still easy to follow and enjoy, even for non-gamers.‐ Black Girl Nerds

5/5 100% Notes From The Field (2018) Gut-wrenching, raw but dignified, and like nothing else I've seen, Anna Deavere Smith's Notes From The Field is a gift. Transporting, redemptive, and crushing.‐ Black Girl Nerds

2/5 87% Annihilation (2018) The film is a death knell for fans of the books looking for a tenth of what they love about them reflected on the screen but, I even think, thin as the adaptation's mysteries are, the bulk of neophytes will equally find themselves bored or confused.‐ Black Girl Nerds

4/5 71% Like Me (2018) A mesmerizing but unpredictably sincere psychedelic social media roadtrip, Like Me will effectively grab your attention.‐ Black Girl Nerds

3.5/5 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) Lin Shaye's performance grows in complexity with each entry, and this is the most intimate introduction to the character to date, as effective for newcomers and series regulars alike. ‐ Black Girl Nerds

1/5 27% Bright (2017) If the point of the film is to somehow succeed where others have failed in the past at making Will Smith unlikable in a character portrayal, it almost gets there.‐ Black Girl Nerds

4/5 No Score Yet Strange Frame: Love & Sax (2012) A tolerance for Strange Frame's unique animation style is probably required for most viewers, but they'll discover a smart, characterful story about love, music, rebellion, and fascism, enthusiastically performed and one-of-a-kind.‐ Black Girl Nerds

3.5/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) A big reason why The Room is so effective is that there is but one, confirmed, solitary individual on that set that doesn't understand the burning building around him: Tommy himself. But in The Disaster Artist, that essential straight-man doesn't exist.‐ Black Girl Nerds

2/5 45% The Star (2017) The children I watched it with seemed engaged enough in the animated hijinks, although the overall design aesthetic seemed to me more reminiscent of an unskippable Clash of Clans ad than the characterful top-shelf animated film its cast suggests.‐ Black Girl Nerds

3.5/5 56% Copwatch (2017) Copwatch provides an interesting and valuable look at a group of people affecting change for the better, empowering them with more fully realized portraits than the evening news ever will.‐ Black Girl Nerds

3.0/5 90% Cropsey (2010) Cropsey is an interesting enough documentary patchwork, and while I do enjoy films of this type which pursue the story as it is found, I never fully trusted the filmmaker's intents, here.‐ Black Girl Nerds

3.5/5 100% Creep 2 (2017) It should be harder to sell this character with such a relatively recognizable actor, and yet you find yourself forgetting who he is in the film's finest moments.‐ Black Girl Nerds

4.5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Denis Villeneuve & co. have constructed a follow-up of such satisfyingly detailed echoes, while still managing to retain an identity unique from the shadow under which it thrives. This might be Blade Runner 2049's greatest achievement. ‐ Black Girl Nerds

5/5 78% Crown Heights (2017) It feels especially rewarding to experience such an emotionally resonant and dignified series of immigrant portraits. ‐ Black Girl Nerds

2.5/5 17% All Eyez on Me (2017) There is a sincerity in the film's performed characterizations that is able to carry entire scenes, but also a confusion in what it insists are the moments that were the most meaningful to the man.‐ Black Girl Nerds

4.5/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) Stressful, dark, and emotionally exhausting, It Comes At Night is a truly haunting experience, and I still can't get the very last shot out of my mind.‐ Black Girl Nerds

3/5 73% Sleight (2017) For a film at least partially about magic (and, "science-magic"), it lacks a decided bit of that necessary misdirection, and the proceedings are often predictable. Sleight is, well, slight.‐ Black Girl Nerds

5/5 99% Get Out (2017) As you waver in its loathsome, slightly surreal but relatable atmosphere, you'll sit adjacent to affectingly casual racism, your composure breaking down, your responses discombobulated.‐ Black Girl Nerds

4.5/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) That Arnett is able to make his character's po-faced humor work more often than not is admirable.‐ Black Girl Nerds

82% Mifune: The Last Samurai (2016) At the absolute least, you will certainly leave the theater with a list of excellent Toshiro Mifune movies that you either missed altogether, or will be re-watching as soon as possible.‐ Black Girl Nerds
