1/4 No Score Yet Easy Does It (2020) All due respect to filmgoers at the Rockport (Illinois) Film Festival, who named "Easy Does It" "best narrative feature," but you all need to get out more. - Movie Nation EDIT

1.5/4 No Score Yet A Nice Girl Like You (2020) As sex farces go, "A Nice Girl Like You" is about as nasty, dirty and funny as a sitcom...on The Disney Channel. - Movie Nation EDIT

1/4 20% Ghosts of War (2020) A mediocre mash-up of genres that leaves no cliche unspoken, no horror trope unturned. - Movie Nation EDIT

2.5/4 20% The Sunlit Night (2019) Savaged at Sundance, saved in a re-edit. There's your headline. - Movie Nation EDIT

3/4 79% Catch-22 (1970) It's the best film of a seemingly-unfilmmable classic novel we're ever going to get. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2020
1.5/4 No Score Yet Maria (2019) It quickly turns into a movie we've seen too many times before, often done much better. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2020
3/4 91% Benjamin (2020) Chatty, insecure, painfully awkward, and thanks at least in part to its leading man's Irish accent, adorably twee. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2020
1.5/4 70% Carmilla (2020) Not a lot happens, and when it does, it's nothing we haven't seen before and done with more terror, fire, sexuality and suspense. - Movie Nation EDIT

3/4 100% Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado (2020) A lovely and loving "victory lap" tribute to an icon of Latin American culture. - Movie Nation EDIT

2/4 78% Nose to Tail (2019) Covers over-familiar ground in a story whose dramatic arc is as pre-ordained as a menu. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2020
1.5/4 82% The Old Guard (2020) The entire affair plays as pro-forma, pre-ordained, pre-digested and pre-dictable. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2020
2.5/4 84% Volition (2020) The performances save it. The pathos of the picture pays off. And the puzzle that the Smiths create doesn't slow down the panicky pace enough to stop it in its tracks. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2020
1.5/4 61% Telling Lies in America (1997) Same old Eszterhas. Same line of BS. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2020

3.5/4 93% We Are Little Zombies (2020) The trippiest movie you'll see this year. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2020
3/4 81% Greyhound (2020) An old fashioned "Victory at Sea" style combat epic - narrow in focus, heroic in nature and relentlessly action-packed. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2020
2/4 67% Time to Hunt (2020) Turns tiresome many minutes before it utterly wears out its welcome. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2020
2.5/4 92% Relic (2020) Spooky on an effects and story-telling level, downright chilling on a personal one. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2020
2.5/4 67% Archive (2020) A slick, moody sci-fi mashup, a thoughtful thriller cobbled together from a lot of better films that came before it. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2020
2/4 No Score Yet Between Shadow and Soul (2020) In most regards, an inferior copy of the same director's "The Third Wife." - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020
1/4 No Score Yet The Runners (2020) The script ranges from bad to worse, with generic character melt-downs and amateurish plot lapses. - Movie Nation EDIT

Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020
3.5/4 No Score Yet Ordinary People (Pamilya Ordinaryo) (2016) Writer-director Roy shows himself to be a De Sica, Spike Lee or Cuaron of the Philippines, an artist who points his camera at his world and makes us see it the way he does. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020
1/4 No Score Yet The F**k-It List (2020) What a crock of s**t. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020

Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020
2/4 58% The Tobacconist (Der trafikant) (2018) Has so much going for it -dramatic times, lovely city, a fascinating historical figure -- Freud -- as part of the milieu, that more's the pity that it doesn't amount to much. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2020
1.5/4 No Score Yet Under the Riccione Sun (2020) It's not bad enough to hate, and the worst you can say about "Riccione" is that it's just a big tease. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2020
3.5/4 100% #AnneFrank. Parallel Stories (Vite parallele) (2019) It's a hard story to screw up, and appreciating its simple authority, how quickly this one breezes by and how moving it is in the end, they didn't. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020
1.5/4 14% Desperados (2020) Exercise your "automatic out," avoid the desperation of all involved. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020
1.5/4 No Score Yet Mujeres Arriba (2019) A tepid little "Sex in the Chilean City" that has the odd amusing moment, thanks to a game cast that's better than the lame script. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2020
2/4 No Score Yet Ingenium (2020) It works better as a mystery than as a mystery solved. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2020
3/4 94% John Lewis: Good Trouble (2020) If Atlanta-based CNN can't do a bang-up job of documenting the life and career of one of Atlanta's own, they'd have to hang their heads in shame. - Movie Nation EDIT

2.5/4 78% Homewrecker (2019) Dollar for low-budget dollar, it delivers fun and value many a Hollywood production would envy. - Movie Nation EDIT

2/4 44% Never Too Late (2020) Never transcends the undemanding, old fashioned lighter-than-light entertainment for seniors that it's meant to be. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2020
2.5/4 99% Hamilton (2020) While filmed plays are always anti-cinematic... it beautifully preserves a multi-cultural musical thrillingly in its moment and of its moment. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2020
2/4 80% Adú (2020) A grim slog for such a mixed-bag of a movie, but the one story that matters almost makes up for the dullness of those stories that matter less. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2020
3/4 92% Straight Up (2020) The quippiest, most quotable romantic comedy of the year. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2020
1.5/4 No Score Yet The Incoherents (2020) A midlife crisis "getting the band back together" comedy that was never going to amount to much more than an idle, not-unpleasant movie you sit through, but don't really enjoy. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2020
0/4 No Score Yet Elvis from Outer Space (2020) It's no "Bubba Ho-Tep." - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2020
3.5/4 No Score Yet Lola Igna (2019) A charming, almost serene Filipino tale that starts off in "Waking Ned Devine" territory and wanders into something almost profound, and certainly disquieting. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2020
2.5/4 92% The Outpost (2020) An engrossing and immersive look at an isolated battle in "America's Longest War." - Movie Nation EDIT

2/4 34% Guest of Honour (2020) A fascinating failure. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2020
1.5/4 62% Skyman (2020) As alien encounter documentaries or mockumentaries go, "Skyman" is boringly earthbound. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2020
3/4 86% Zombie for Sale (2019) A hoot -- cleverly conceived, amusingly-executed, comically satisfying. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2020
3.5/4 67% Animal Farm (1954) CIA-backed or not, Fall of the Soviet Union be damned, this more-subtle-than-you-think version of Orwell's novel still resonates and remains relevant in an age of "Strong Men" rule. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2020
3/4 77% Umrika (2015) A film of genuine surprises and tiny delights, even though it bogs down and loses its urgency when the quest that drives it falls into the background. - Movie Nation EDIT
