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 78% 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 88% 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

2/4 50% 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

4/4 90% 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

3.5/4 89% 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

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

3/4 86% 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

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

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

3/4 92% 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

3/4 54% LBJ (2017) It's as workmanlike as Johnson was as a politician; but as a primer on one of history's less flashy leaders, it's a worthwhile watch - mostly for fellow Texan Woody Harrelson's committed performance behind those prosthetic ears.‐ New York Post

3/4 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) It's witty, it's weird and it goes against decades of bloated, overserious comics fare.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) Hall is careful not to reduce his characters to tormented caricature.‐ New York Post

1/4 7% The Snowman (2017) This adaptation is so sloggy it feels like wading through thigh-deep snowfall, stained scarlet from all the gratuitous gore.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 69% Wonderstruck (2017) Haynes folds in so many eras and visual styles, it's hard not to be dazzled - and why should you resist? - even if, as usual, he keeps your emotions at arm's length.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 88% Only the Brave (2017) What goes down in Yarnell, and Kosinski's respectful portrayal of it, is undeniably devastating - and a well-deserved salute to a group of low-key heroes.‐ New York Post

2/4 92% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) More than most of Baumbach's creations, the Meyerowitzes are just too tedious for words.‐ New York Post

2/4 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Like the 20-foot-tall ballerina holograms pirouetting through its decrepit Los Angeles streets, "Blade Runner 2049" is hauntingly beautiful, technologically stunning and low on substance.‐ New York Post

1.5/4 34% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) "Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House" is all handsome period costumes, smoky rooms and muttered dialogue; you could be forgiven for thinking it's any number of John Grisham plots.‐ New York Post

3/4 87% American Made (2017) It's nice to be reminded that Tom Cruise has the chops to play somebody other than Tom Cruise, Action Hero.‐ New York Post

3/4 86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) It's a feel-good film with a somewhat curdled legacy: You could clip just about any piece of sexist dialogue here, label it 2017 and pass it off as plausible.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
3/4 92% Stronger (2017) Director David Gordon Green generally skips feel-good cliché to chronicle Bauman's struggle with being painted as the face of never letting the terrorists win.‐ New York Post

3/4 69% mother! (2017) "mother!" is undeniably a wild, memorable ride. It's a Rorschach test of a movie to interpret however you like.‐ New York Post

3/4 81% Brad's Status (2017) White excels at writing dislikable protagonists ... while giving his characters enough humanity not to be monsters, and the potential for change.‐ New York Post

4/4 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) This rural drama is the best yet from playwright and filmmaker Martin McDonagh, and one of Frances McDormand's greatest performances.‐ New York Post

97% The Death of Stalin (2017) A delicious black comedy ...‐ New York Post

96% The Florida Project (2017) You come away better for having known this crew, a demographic that's sorely underrepresented on the screen.‐ New York Post

39% I Love You, Daddy (2017) CK's fans are arguably more devoted than even Allen's, and this film will find its audience. But it will also find a number of viewers who think it's a little nausea-inducing.‐ New York Post

28% Suburbicon (2017) "Suburbicon" is a surprisingly tone-deaf combination of two wildly different stories that simply don't work in concert.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2017
99% Lady Bird (2017) This is a resoundingly modern, assuredly female-voiced comedy that portends more great things to come from Gerwig behind the camera.‐ New York Post

2/4 22% Rememory (2017) You may find this one purged from your own memory banks shortly after watching.‐ New York Post

3/4 85% It (2017) The literal ghouls here take a back seat to the subtler ones, which are really where "It" shines darkly.‐ New York Post

3/4 93% Gook (2017) Chon directs with style and a humane eye for all parties; he's a dynamic young director to keep your eye on.‐ New York Post

3/4 92% Logan Lucky (2017) It's a lark, if you can tolerate the hammy redneck accents, and confirms that Soderbergh is as agile as ever at knitting together all the moving parts of a complex heist.‐ New York Post

1/4 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Why did either of you gentlemen sign up for this tone-deaf piece of work? Who thought it was appropriate to use mass graves as a plot point in an action comedy?‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
2/4 50% The Glass Castle (2017) Movie adaptations shouldn't require that you know their source material. But in the case of "The Glass Castle," it's impossible not to just say it: You're better off reading the book.‐ New York Post

3/4 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) Theron makes one hell of a superspy, and it's high time she got her "John Wick" moment.‐ New York Post

4/4 84% Detroit (2017) It is not an easy watch, and it is an essential one.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
3/4 92% Dunkirk (2017) The tension starts from minute one and doesn't let up until the credits roll in "Dunkirk," Christopher Nolan's terse, nerve-jangling WWII drama.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
1/4 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Besson styles him as a cocky space rogue, but Valerian is weak sauce. And so is this movie.‐ New York Post

3/4 90% Girls Trip (2017) Now this is how you do a female raunch comedy.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
3/4 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Apologies to Charlton Heston loyalists, but "War for the Planet of the Apes" is a good example of how today's movies sometimes beat the hell out of the oldies.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
3/4 67% Footnotes (Sur quel pied danser) (2017) Footnotes isn't perfect, but at least nobody lectured me about jazz.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
2/4 82% The Rehearsal (2016) Feels like a handful of sketches in need of more connection.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
3/4 99% City of Ghosts (2017) Their story should be required viewing for anyone engaging in discussion of the refugee "problem."‐ New York Post

3/4 91% A Ghost Story (2017) If you're patient ... C's wordless vigil will send you away with a shivery melancholy that defies easy explanation.‐ New York Post

4/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Beginning with a score that riffs on the late-'70s cartoon and closing with a slyly funny after-credits scene, it's as sure-footed as its arachnid namesake.‐ New York Post
