2/5 78% Gemini (2018) Kirke is always watchable and a good presence on screen, but so much about "Gemini" is so contrived that here she looks a little lost in the story at times.‐ Associated Press

4/4 91% Isle of Dogs (2018) "Isle of Dogs" is positively littered with his signature banter, and it as quick and wry as ever, without a single hair out of place. ‐ Associated Press

2.5/4 49% Tomb Raider (2018) "Tomb Raider" is an often fun and visually compelling action pic, that is also sometimes unintentionally silly, with a great actress leading the whole thing.‐ Associated Press

94% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) It's relentlessly cold-hearted that you get the sense that Zhenya and Boris might prefer it if their son doesn't turn up - they are so deeply selfish and resentful of his existence..Loveless is a beautifully shot and elegantly constructed film.‐ Associated Press

3/4 81% The Party (2018) While it is wickedly funny and deft, this crowd is also not one you'd clamor for the company of for any extended amount of time. But, it is a fun experiment to be a fly on the wall for this bizarre night.‐ Associated Press

3/4 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fant├ística) (2018) It's [Daniela] Vega's extraordinary performance, full of grace and depth, that keeps "A Fantastic Woman" in check from becoming something either too campy or too sanctimonious. ‐ Associated Press

3/4 89% The Insult (L'insulte) (2018) It's quite a riveting and though-provoking journey, with compelling and nuanced performances all around, and, although it is quite serious, not without moments of levity.‐ Associated Press

2.5/4 54% 12 Strong (2018) ... stirring and solid, "12 Strong" is the kind of film that might make you think twice about January releases, and spotlights a riveting story in our recent history that many Americans might not know.‐ Associated Press

3.5/4 100% Paddington 2 (2018) ... "Paddington 2" is a total delight.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
2.5/4 73% Hostiles (2018) Bursts of intense violence are punctuated with sometimes tedious blocks of speeches and silence, but "Hostiles," despite its posture of brutal amorality, has a goodness at its core, of understanding and empathy. ‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
91% Phantom Thread (2018) Like all of Anderson's efforts, "Phantom Thread" is beautiful and intriguing, but it's also a film that is not unlike its central character: easy to respect and admire, and nearly impossible to fully love.‐ Associated Press

2.5/4 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ," is a very sweet, and generally entertaining body swap lark with some nice messages about being, and believing in, yourself.‐ Associated Press

87% The Post (2018) ... "The Post" is meat and potatoes Spielberg in the best possible way.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) ... an aesthetic journey that pays off in a stunning third act when the endless summer quickens to light speed and is gone in a flash.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
40% Justice League (2017) Although marginally better than Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, director Zack Snyder's latest is still a profound mess of maudlin muscles, incoherent action and jaw-droppingly awful CGI. It is big, loud, awful to look at and oh-so-dumb.‐ Associated Press

2.5/4 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) As odd as it might sound, it is somewhat refreshing to sit in a theater and watch a grand scale production that's not set in space or predetermined by the pages in a comic book. ‐ Associated Press

99% Lady Bird (2017) Left to her own devices, Gerwig has arrived and solidified her place as one of the most invigorating, observant and authentic voices in movies today with a director's acumen to match.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
28% Suburbicon (2017) ... too obvious to be particularly subversive or revealing... ‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) "Thor: Ragnarok" is the most fun of the Thor movies by a long shot, but it is still very much a Thor movie for better or worse.‐ Associated Press

67% Wonderstruck (2017) For a kid in this age of digital devices and content disconnected from experience, Wonderstruck could be its own sort of treasure.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
96% The Florida Project (2017) ... Dafoe's warm and generous performance is simply astonishing.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
35% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) Mark Felt the movie just never rises to the level of its own story.‐ Associated Press

92% Stronger (2017) That Stronger, as unpleasant as it is, doesn't shy away from the complicated side of recovery is admirable to say the least.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) A fairly standard, if unexceptional film that has two major things going for it: Emma Stone and timeliness.‐ Associated Press

69% mother! (2017) My heart has not stopped its anxious pounding, nor my head from spinning since seeing this film.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
85% It (2017) Instead of building tension and suspense, It just jumps from scene to scares with no connection or coherence to thread them together other than the mere fact that they've been placed on top of one-another, like toys mixed up from different sets.‐ Associated Press

3/4 85% Beach Rats (2017) There are no clear answers here for Frankie or for us, which might not be satisfying but is no less poignant.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
37% Leap! (2017) "LEAP!" is a fine-enough background movie and one young kids might very well take to, but it's just mystifying how lazily the story components seem to have been put together. . .‐ Associated Press

93% Logan Lucky (2017) Flaws aside, it is a darn good heist, and sure to leave you with a smile on your face. We should be glad Soderbergh is back, hopefully this time for good.‐ Associated Press

84% Detroit (2017) It's hard to overstate just how visceral and harrowing an experience it is. Detroit is a well-made and evocative film that is also numbingly brutal with little to no reprieve.‐ Associated Press

8% The Emoji Movie (2017) The good news is The Emoji Movie, co-written and directed by Tony Leondis, is not evil. The bad news is it's just mediocre, or in emoji parlance, simply "meh."‐ Associated Press

92% Dunkirk (2017) Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a stone cold masterpiece. It's a stunningly immersive survival film told in 106 thrillingly realized minutes.‐ Associated Press

3/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) You know what? Superhero cynicism aside, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is really fun.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
93% Baby Driver (2017) There's nothing like an epic getaway chase to kick a movie into high gear, and the first five minutes of Baby Driver are pure movie magic.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Regardless of what happens or doesn't happen next for the Planet of the Apes, this installment is very simply a great time at the movies.‐ Associated Press

98% The Big Sick (2017) Some stories are too good to be true, and some true stories are too good for the movies. Luckily for us, The Big Sick is neither.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
44% Rough Night (2017) There are some wild moments... and some of them are fun. I just wish they weren't in service of a throwaway gimmick that is too dark to stomach.‐ Associated Press

88% It Comes At Night (2017) Shults, in only his second feature following his splashy debut with the family psychodrama Krisha, stylishly and effectively builds tension and mystery in this stripped-down experiment that crescendos occasionally into the stuff of nightmares.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2017
92% Wonder Woman (2017) Like the heroine at its center, Wonder Woman the movie rises with powerful grace above the noise. It's not perfect, but it's often good, sometimes great and exceptionally re-watchable.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 29, 2017
49% War Machine (2017) This might not be the classic modern military satire that we needed, but it is a start -- and an unflinching one at that.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
20% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) A deeply unfunny family road trip film that has gross out jokes to rival the R-rated Vacation remake.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Despite a shameless non-ending that hints at sequel possibilities, this is not a film that is likely to stick with you even past the movie theater parking lot. Like Arthur, you'll be happy that you got alive and relatively unscathed.‐ Associated Press

45% The Dinner (2017) The performances are first rate -- nuanced and lived in from the first moments of performative civility to the shattering barbs thrown by the end -- even if the women are given the comparatively short stick here.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted May 2, 2017
49% The Promise (2017) It's unfair to critique such an utterly sincere film that does contain some riveting action and acting and even might inspire some to learn more about this moment in history, but unfortunately, the story just doesn't live up to its grand ambitions.‐ Associated Press

91% A Quiet Passion (2017) While the visuals and steady shots are often relaxing, at the heart is a searing and soulful performance of an anguished artist born into the wrong time.‐ Associated Press
