2.5/4 95% Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (2018) One is left feeling that this is the generically structured and tamer 'approved' version of a much richer story.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 28% Proud Mary (2018) "Proud Mary" doesn't deserve the lack of faith its studio has in it. In fact, it's almost good, so close to success that its flaws truly become frustrating. ‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 93% Fences (2016) The masterful thing about Denzel Washington's direction here is that he doesn't exactly open up the play. Instead, he opens up the visual frame around the players.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 22% Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) At 103 minutes, this film has way too much dead weight. Scenes are repeated over and over, and some of the acting would not cut it in a school play.‐ RogerEbert.com
