5/5 99% Wolfwalkers (2020) It is a truly beautiful exploration of the wild, family, and friendship that I look forward to watching, again and again, to pick out more of the details that were infused in this modern masterpiece. - The Mary Sue EDIT

98% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) Your Name is a beautiful movie, and if you haven't yet checked it out and want a movie about love with a lot of humor and fantastical elements, I would highly recommend it. - The Mary Sue EDIT

99% Miss Juneteenth (2020) The heart of this film is the love between Kai and Turquoise, it is their movie, as two women attempting to have something for themselves. - The Mary Sue EDIT

58% A Goofy Movie (1995) I'm always impressed when I revisit this film at how well it gets that feeling of teen/parent angst... - The Mary Sue EDIT

91% The Invisible Man (2020) What I love about this film (and horror in general) is how it can really be a voice for the marginalized experience when done thoughtfully. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) I loved that. Birds of Prey is also only a glorious hour and forty minutes long, but doesn't feel rushed because there is so much story being told. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 86% Emma. (2020) I think that if you have not seen any previous adaptations of Emma, this is a solid one that is well shot and has talented actors from across all your favorite British television dramas. - The Mary Sue EDIT

51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) In the end, I think one thing is fundamentally true about this sequel trilogy: the fact that they went in without a three-movie plan, directors who were communicating, and a story bible is a damn sin. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 95% Little Women (2019) This is probably the best film version of Little Women, and with it, Greta Gerwig has brought a new level of beauty, charm, and Amy March excellence to the story. - The Mary Sue EDIT

38% Black Christmas (2019) I think Black Christmas missed the mark by taking nearly every single talking point from the movement and throwing it into a script that is not paced well enough to really allow all these things to come together. - The Mary Sue EDIT

98% Alien (1979) There is something beautifully simplistic about Alien-the practical effects, the design of the alien, and how the tension just keeps ramping up. - The Mary Sue EDIT

1.5/5 39% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) The big problem with this sequel is that it covers a lot of issues that the it's unable to commit to properly handling, both tonally and structure-wise. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 68% Joker (2019) It is made well, but overall, it's a childish, meandering story that didn't deserve the attention it got, but also doesn't deserve much other than acting praise. - The Mary Sue EDIT

84% Downton Abbey (2019) Downton Abbey delivers what it's supposed to, a dated escapism that is so detached from our modern-day issues that you can just obliviously enjoy it. - The Mary Sue EDIT

78% Descendants 3 (2019) It was a powerful final chapter to this fun, musical trilogy. - The Mary Sue EDIT

94% Whisper of the Heart (Mimi wo sumaseba) (If You Listen Closely) (2006) Shizuku is a fantastic heroine and for all my creatively inclined people, if you haven't seen this movie yet, it'll remind you of the work and honing of craft needed to be great at anything you love. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 52% The Lion King (2019) That doesn't make this adaptation necessary, but I will say that having a majority Black voice cast in the movie was really awesome to hear. Yes, even Beyoncé. - The Mary Sue EDIT

23% Men in Black International (2019) It's disappointing that with a franchise that has so much promise and so much potential for fun, they couldn't make something strong out of it. - The Mary Sue EDIT

22% Dark Phoenix (2019) The crappy way they deal with Storm's powers, make Jean Grey a plot device versus treating her like a real character. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) If you are a fan of monster movies, this is one of the best I've seen in recent years. - The Mary Sue EDIT

1/5 56% Ma (2019) Sadly, by the time the story really gets good, it's too late, and nothing was really worth having us wait that long. - The Mary Sue EDIT

93% Us (2019) To say that Us is more than a horror movie does a disservice to the genre that Peele loves. Us is a horror movie in all the glory that encompasses. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 95% If Beale Street Could Talk (2019) That's why If Beale Street Could Talk was a perfect film, as it is important, topical, beautiful, and most importantly, a magnificent piece of art. - The Mary Sue EDIT

83% Creed II (2018) Creed II, along with the entire Creed spinoff, has managed to be an incredible revival of a beloved franchise, a black movie that is proud of its blackness, and also a good romance. - The Mary Sue EDIT

40% Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) What I love most about Repo! is how fun the music is. While not everyone is a trained singer, they all bring an electric energy to the performances. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 79% Halloween (2018) 2018's Halloween is a great addition to the Halloween franchise, and by cutting off all of the previously existing sequels, it's able to not only make Michael Myers a true creature of terror, but also comments, subtly, on the current true crime culture. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 87% Colette (2018) Keira Knightley is phenomenal, and it can not be understated how well she carries the movie. She masterfully transitions from metaphorical childhood into adulthood, not to mention capturing the charm and intelligence of someone like Colette. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 25% The Nun (2018) The Nun feels like it's always coasting on the success of former films... This film really didn't do much except make me want to see the same cast in a much better film. - The Mary Sue EDIT

16% Pokémon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew (1999) Not only is this movie really good... , but it actually raised some interesting philosophical questions about the nature of Pokémon. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) BlacKkKlansman benefits from a solid cast and a script... that has a good mixture of comedic and dramatic moments that keep the movie from dragging despite its 2-hour-plus run time. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) Hotel Artemis manages to make an hour and thirty minutes seem like an eternity. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 51% Tomb Raider (2018) In terms of acting, everyone is pretty good, but especially Alicia Vikander as Lara and Daniel Wu as Lu Ren. - The Mary Sue EDIT

45% Red Sparrow (2018) This is a male idea of female empowerment. - The Mary Sue EDIT

1.5/5 11% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) The biggest offender of this movie, beyond the toxic as hell masculinity, is that when it comes down to it, it's just not sexy-and I wanted it to be. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 96% Black Panther (2018) The women of Black Panther do so much throughout the film, all while being funny, sensuous, smart and strong. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 29% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) The second, and now third installments have turned into meandering messes with few jokes that land and a cast that, while talented, doesn't really get to do much. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) They finally got Superman right! It took two previous movies, but they got Superman right, and I'm so happy. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet The Carmilla Movie (2017) Carmilla understands that it's strongest factor is how inclusive it is. - The Mary Sue EDIT
