No Score Yet Stephanie (2017) A witless attempt to take a small story and make it big, with no understanding of the potential power of that small story. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

97% The Big Sick (2017) It's the best kind of romantic comedy, small in scope but vast in impact, and a reminder of just how great the genre can be when we give it the chance.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) It delivers the charm and whimsy of the original while managing to also feel new, an adaptation that is respectful but never slavish.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

76% Atomic Blonde (2017) Theron is great in it, and some of the fight scenes sing, but an action movie needs focus and energy, and ATOMIC BLONDE is utterly bereft of both.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

100% 78/52 (2017) Philippe spends ninety minutes dissecting a two-minute scene, and in doing so reveals the depth of Hitchock's genius in a way a much broader discussion likely couldn't.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

43% Fun Mom Dinner (2017) The film's low-key meandering almost recommends it, compared to more manic versions of this story. FUN MOM DINNER won't exhaust you, but it won't exhilarate you either.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

17% Rememory (2017) If it weren't for Dinklage's remarkable performance, the film would have very little to recommend it.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

100% Thoroughbred (2017) Cory Finley came in hot with his first film. With THOROUGHBRED, the writer and director has delivered a stylish, eerie psychodrama about that most vexing of subjects: teenage girls.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) NEIGHBORS 2: SORORITY RISING elevates the very idea of a comedy sequel while hitting upon what it means to be a millennial feminist in a patriarchal society. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

15% The Girl In The Photographs (2016) Whether the film actually develops its compelling premise is arguable, but the attempt is entertaining and admirably ambitious. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

52% Demolition (2016) DEMOLITION is honest about grief: that it's unique to each of us, that it can be selfish and ugly, that it's at least as strong for those for whom our love is mixed with some measure of antipathy. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

77% Keanu (2016) Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are beloved, and KEANU offers a 90-minute opportunity for us to bask in their charm while cooing over the world's tiniest and most adorable kitten. What's not to like here?‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

67% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) Tina Fey is so good that you can forget that WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT is a bit mediocre and myopic.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2016
60% Sisters (2015) On paper, SISTERS is pretty fluffy, and a close examination of its plot doesn't help it any. But Poehler and Fey are so joyous, so lively, so imminently watchable and endlessly hilarious, that SISTERS doesn't need any other help.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2015
55% Anguish (2015) This is a horror movie that starts with characters and then moves to scares, a rare thing these days, and because we do care for these characters so much, it's that much more terrifying when their very souls are at stake.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2015
42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) It's a grand yarn, one that director Ron Howard shrinks into a too-tidy fairy tale complete with winking bookends and easy questions of morality.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

18% Jem and the Holograms (2015) A magpie would make right away with this thing: it's shiny, it's colorful and it's very lightweight. But it's got a message that the girls who will watch it can't hear enough: be yourself. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
