2.5/4 52% Superfly (2018) "Superfly" escapes superficiality thanks largely to strong performances from Jackson; Jason Mitchell as Priest's workmanlike partner, Eddie, and Michael Kenneth Williams as Priest's mentor, Scatter.‐ New York Post

3/4 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) I'm holding out hope for an "Incredibles 3" where Violet and Elastigirl team up against a baddie who goes by The Patriarchy.‐ New York Post

2/4 66% Ocean's 8 (2018) Like a cubic zirconia knockoff of a priceless diamond necklace, this female "Ocean's" update looks the part but just ain't got that sparkle.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 70% Adrift (2018) "Adrift" is worth a watch, even if its drama (perhaps inevitably) pales in comparison to the source material.‐ New York Post

3/4 85% American Animals (2018) Although this might not all tonally flow, it's clear you're watching a dazzling new directorial career taking flight.‐ New York Post

3/4 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) The eagerness of Deadpool to call out its own shortcomings earns this trash-talking franchise a lot of goodwill.‐ New York Post

3/4 38% Life of the Party (2018) A funny and disarmingly sweet if slightly uneven comedy co-written by the star and her husband, director Ben Falcone.‐ New York Post

2/4 21% Terminal (2018) Everything and everybody else just seems here to support Robbie: If nothing else, her performance here is a compelling argument for her to get that Harley Quinn stand-alone film made, already.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 60% Anything (2018) Writer-director Timothy McNeil...crafts a fairly moving tribute to the notion, as Lin-Manuel Miranda once put it, that "love is love is love."‐ New York Post

3/4 87% Tully (2018) Suffice to say this is a take on the realities of motherhood that dares to go where few mainstream films have gone.‐ New York Post

2/4 52% Bad Samaritan (2018) Plays like an unambitious episode of "Black Mirror"...‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
3/4 84% Disobedience (2018) Ultimately, this is a gently humane portrait of an enduring problem facing men and women in all manner of fundamentalist communities: the notion that choice has anything to do with who we desire.‐ New York Post

3/4 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) All the past decade's Marvel movies have been heading toward this showdown. Turns out the payoff was worth the wait.‐ New York Post

1.5/4 33% I Feel Pretty (2018) "I Feel Pretty" takes a talented comic and casts her in the worst possible light (and I don't mean that literally. She looks fine).‐ New York Post

3/4 71% Wildling (2018) A supernatural "What's Happening to My Body?" parable in company with "Carrie," "Ginger Snaps" and last year's "Thelma," "Wildling" is low-key with an undertone of menace, skillfully directed by Fritz Böhm in his feature debut.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 52% Rampage (2018) It's big, bloated, and, if you give in to the familiar charms of its jacked leading man, not unenjoyable.‐ New York Post

3/4 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) With a jarring 11th-hour twist, [director Lynne] Ramsay leaves you pondering what menace lies beneath all those familiar sights and sounds.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
3/4 73% Ready Player One (2018) For every obscure sci-fi nod, there's a crowd-pleasing Spielbergian trope: Scrappy hero crushing on an independent gal? Check. Friends banding together? Got 'em. Greedy corporate villain? Yep.‐ New York Post

79% Unsane (2018) Foy owns this intimate, claustrophobic film, which at its heart is about the universal fear (especially for women, doubly so for ones seeking protection from manipulative men) of telling your story and not being believed.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
2/4 39% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Too often content to smile beatifically instead of delivering the necessary thrills.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
2/4 35% The Leisure Seeker (2018) It's a sweet premise ... that isn't fleshed out well in the leaden screenplay, which leans heavily on the most obvious Americana trappings to gin up a lighter side of senility.‐ New York Post

45% 90th Academy Awards (2018) The 90th Annual Academy Awards was the most tepid, predictable one in recent memory, devoid of anything resembling a spontaneous or dramatic moment until it was nearly time to wrap it all up.‐ New York Post

1/4 47% Red Sparrow (2018) The film's unquestionable high point is Lawrence's character bellowing the accusing line in her Boris-and-Natasha accent: "You sent me to whore school!"‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2018
2/4 15% Mute (2018) But it's never a great sign when your lead is upstaged by the supporting players, and for all its good looks, "Mute" ultimately doesn't have a whole lot to say.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
3/4 87% Annihilation (2018) Ambitious and messy, "Annhilation" will likely leave you with more questions than answers. Mine is: "When can I see it again?"‐ New York Post

3.5/4 97% Black Panther (2018) Like all the best comics movies, this one's got a villain (Michael B. Jordan) so compelling he nearly steals the show from the hero (Chadwick Boseman).‐ New York Post

1.5/4 25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) Minus its pivotal event, "The 15:17 to Paris" feels a lot like sitting through someone else's endless photo slide show: Really only interesting to the people who lived it.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 76% Braven (2018) For anyone looking for a shot of vengeance adrenaline while waiting for "John Wick 3" to come down the pike, "Braven" will probably fit the bill.‐ New York Post

70% Lizzie (2018) I spent most of the running time waiting for Lizzie (Chloë Sevigny) to grab the hatchet and wrap things up already.‐ New York Post

78% Nancy (2018) You'll come away knowing you've seen a master at work.‐ New York Post

90% Hereditary (2018) This remarkable directorial debut from Ari Aster builds on classical horror tropes - the occult, possession, mental illness- to craft its own unique spin on terror.‐ New York Post

2/4 62% Please Stand By (2018) Lewin ... posits this as a whimsical road comedy, but I couldn't help questioning both the logic and the consistency.‐ New York Post

77% Damsel (2018) It takes a bit to get accustomed to the Zellners' style - but once you do, boy, does "Damsel" really blossom.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Behind that facade of nice, it turns out, there was mostly even more nice - albeit, buoyed by a serious commitment to educational TV.‐ New York Post

94% Three Identical Strangers (2018) This is riveting, deeply unsettling stuff.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2018
98% The Tale (2018) It is truly hard to imagine more effective tinder to ignite a conversation than The Tale.‐ New York Post

92% Sorry to Bother You (2018) Some of it works, some of it leaves you scratching your head. But director Boots Riley is one to watch.‐ New York Post

3/4 92% Saturday Church (2018) Under the generous debut direction of Damon Cardasis, there's enough heart and raw truth here to uplift the moments that falter.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 79% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) Bening forgoes vanity and digs into the humiliation Grahame felt as she aged out of the vampy roles Hollywood typecast her in. Bell brings a sturdy humanity to Peter ...‐ New York Post

3/4 87% The Post (2018) "The Post" may be all-too-easy Oscar bait, but it's as satisfying and polished as you'd expect.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
2/4 51% Downsizing (2017) Alexander Payne's new sci-fi comedy, about a near future in which humans can opt to "go small," squanders its big ideas in record time.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 91% Phantom Thread (2018) I've never written down the word "wallpaper" in my notes so many times in the course of a single film.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
4/4 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) While there are elements nodding to The Empire Strikes Back, The Last Jedi is no copycat. In its most daring moments, it even tweaks a few series tropes, updating them with a decidedly populist kick.‐ New York Post

3/4 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) Funny -- sometimes brutally -- and surprisingly touching, it works whether you've seen the source material or not, though there are plentiful shout-outs to die-hard fans.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2017
3.5/4 90% I, Tonya (2018) Gillespie walks a fine line in mining both the buffoonish nature of the crime and the deep sadness of Harding's rise and fall, and mostly pulls it off.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
2.5/4 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Ultimately, this is a film from a group of terrific talents that never quite comes together the way you'd hope. It's just too fluid to wholly take shape.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
3/4 85% Darkest Hour (2017) Gary Oldman hasn't done a deep dive into a character for years, but he makes up for lost time with a spectacular performance as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, rousing the country to fight the Nazis against all odds at the start of World War II.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2017
2/4 40% Justice League (2017) A pointless flail of expensive (yet, somehow, cheap-looking) CGI that no amount of tacked-on quips, or even Gadot's luminescent star power, can rescue.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
4/4 96% Mudbound (2017) Rees always finds balancing notes here - of humanity, passion and true love. It's a tale as messy as its muddy fields, and it's a must-watch.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
3/4 93% Thelma (2017) With its gray skies, moody ambience and ominous orchestral score, "Thelma" fits the cliché about Scandinavian entertainment being dark as hell - in the best way. It's also gorgeous.‐ New York Post
