3/4 100% Paddington 2 (2018) Supplies a happy ration of kid-friendly slapstick, grown-up jokes, and a batch of the most recognizable actors in Britain.‐ Seattle Weekly

4/4 92% Phantom Thread (2018) I found its 130 minutes spellbinding and mind-bending.‐ Seattle Weekly

2/4 89% I, Tonya (2018) This is not complexity; this is trying to have it both ways.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 81% Molly's Game (2018) One of the ways this film is refreshing is that it's about process, not romance. Sorkin is concerned with how systems operate, so we learn the intricacies of a floating poker game - but we don't waste any of the film's 140 minutes on Bloom in love.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2.5/4 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Johnson is in his usual self-parodying mode, and he banters well with the perpetually adrenalized Hart.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

1.5/4 85% Darkest Hour (2017) Aside from Oldman's frisky pleasure in hamming it up, Darkest Hour collapses in a great pile of hogwash. ‐ Seattle Weekly

3.5/4 50% Downsizing (2017) Its saving grace is the loopiness of its basic idea.‐ Seattle Weekly

3.5/4 96% Call Me by Your Name (2018) Although the material occasionally steers in the vicinity of a 1980s teen romance directed by Randall Kleiser (Summer Lovers fans, you know who you are), there's enough torment and joy generated to cast a real spell. ‐ Seattle Weekly

3.5/4 94% On the Beach at Night Alone (Bamui haebyun-eoseo honja) (2017) This is movie-making as a kind of extended confessional, from a filmmaker to an actress, and it's compelling on that score.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 70% Ferdinand (2017) The pacifist bovine remains a lovable character, the movie's running time indicates the difficulty of bringing such a simple story to life: There's a certain amount of hormone-fed expansion involved in making a feature out of all this.‐ Seattle Weekly

4/4 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) In practically every frame, writer-director Rian Johnson conveys how much fun it is to do this stuff.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2/4 30% Wonder Wheel (2017) If Allen seemed half as engaged with the material as Storaro obviously is, we might have something here.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 92% Thelma (2017) Cold and calculated, but some of its scenes are potent.‐ Seattle Weekly

3.5/4 99% Jane (2017) A fascinating treat.‐ Seattle Weekly

2.5/4 93% The Breadwinner (2017) The longer this kind of thing goes on the more I start wishing the Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote would make an appearance.‐ Seattle Weekly

4/4 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) This film is playing a delicate game, offering observations about human nature while it undercuts our expectations about how we watch movies.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) As director, Branagh mostly stays out of Agatha Christie's way and lets the material do its surefire thing, except for a couple of ill-advised sequences of people running and jumping.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 81% The Square (2017) For me the excitement waned as the film got into the last stages of its 142-minute run time, but until then it fulfills the requirements of an arthouse roller-coaster ride.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 99% God's Own Country (2017) You never doubt that this tough life is being portrayed from the inside.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Everything here is a goof.‐ Seattle Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
1/4 29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) A lot of noise, but not many jokes.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) In its admirably modest way, this is a thoughtful film -- more Pooh than Disney in its style.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3.5/4 94% Human Flow (2017) Watching the film is like seeing a portrait of the human soul as it is being systematically reduced in size -- not the soul of the international refugee, but everybody's collective soul.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 83% Loving Vincent (2017) There is something psychedelically exciting about seeing the action unfold, so wild are the colors and designs.‐ Seattle Weekly

1.5/4 7% The Snowman (2017) A story that might have been confusing even if the movie didn't appear to have been edited with an immersion blender.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 66% Breathe (2017) A stubborn strain of unsentimental, even sarcastic, humor.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2.5/4 98% Lucky (2017) The makers of Lucky clearly incorporated many of Stanton's own attitudes into their film, and the result-though completely fictionalized-feels like a tribute to a singular friend.‐ Seattle Weekly

4/4 96% Ex Libris: New York Public Library (2017) Like an old card catalog organized according to the Dewey Decimal System: calm, useful, elegant.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Has some significant problems - but is also crammed with dazzling moments.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
2/4 66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) It's content to allow the queen to be cute and cranky, and Abdul to be charming. We receive the film's timely lesson about how a Muslim person of color might teach something to the lily-white British elites, and it's all very tidy and self-satisfied.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2.5/4 87% American Made (2017) This is a black comedy, and irony isn't Cruise's most natural mode, yet by playing Seal as a slightly dimwitted cheeseball on the make, he gets into the movie's you-can't-make-up-this-stuff spirit.‐ Seattle Weekly

2/4 15% Friend Request (2017) If the story is standard teen-horror material, Verhoeven plays honestly by it, laying out the scares in crisp fashion and building a few genuinely WTF moments, if not much LOL.‐ Seattle Weekly

3.5/4 81% Brad's Status (2017) This is a signature role for an actor we tend to take for granted.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) I was finally won over by this movie's endless parade of zany ideas and ridiculous gadgets.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2.5/4 69% mother! (2017) At one point the house becomes a kind of theater for all the chaos of modern life: terrorism, protests, religious fanaticism, militarization run amok. Did we mention this movie is pretentious?‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2/4 28% Rebel in the Rye (2017) A well-meaning but ham-handed attempt to get at Salinger's mystery.‐ Seattle Weekly
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
78% Crown Heights (2017) This is a calm, methodical response to a life-altering corruption of justice.‐ Seattle Weekly

2.5/4 25% Unlocked (2017) Competent, but not especially inspired.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3.5/4 82% The Trip to Spain (2017) Might be the series' most frequently hilarious installment.‐ Seattle Weekly

1/4 34% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) Webb guides everything smoothly, which is one of the smugly annoying things about it.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 91% Good Time (2017) A fever-dream of hand-held close-ups and bold colors.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) There are worse ways to spend a late-summer evening at the multiplex.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3.5/4 92% Logan Lucky (2017) This movie does not aspire to greatness or significance; being extremely clever and thoroughly competent is the goal here.‐ Seattle Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
3/4 50% The Glass Castle (2017) Woody Harrelson gives another huge, fearless performance, with maximum turbulence and precious little order. He's the main reason to see this uneven but forceful film.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3.5/4 87% Wind River (2017) A gratifyingly solid movie for grown-ups.‐ Seattle Weekly

93% Yourself and Yours (2016) Korean director Hong Sang-soo has a unique ability to create relationship comedies that are both charming and puzzling.‐ Seattle Weekly

94% Endless Poetry (Poesía Sin Fin) (2017) Watching it is a little like getting kidnapped by a troupe of mimes and puppeteers, but at some point Stockholm Syndrome sets in and you end up liking its utter insanity.‐ Seattle Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
75% Pyromaniac (Pyromanen) (2016) Director Erik Skjoldbjærg made the original Insomnia, and he maintains a fine eye and steady beat, even if this film never becomes more than a one-note case study.‐ Seattle Weekly
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
91% Heal the Living (Réparer les vivants) (2017) [Heal the Living] tilts a little too far toward New Age-iness toward the end, but the mix of melancholy and medicine is wonderfully balanced.‐ Seattle Weekly

No Score Yet A Dragon Arrives! (Ejdeha Vared Mishavad!) (2016) The sheer unpredictability is fun to watch and its musical soundtrack glorious to hear‐ Seattle Weekly
