No Score Yet Ludo (2020) Ludo works, in many different ways, if those ways are not to dig too deep. It's an outrageous comedy when it wants to be, gets very serious and dark at times, while being emotionally moving during others. - Blank Page Beatdown EDIT

85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is definitely a fun watch. It's got action, humor, drama, ridiculous situations and outrageous performances. Staples of a Tarantino movie to be honest. - Blank Page Beatdown EDIT

68% Joker (2019) Joker is a subversion of the trope of the hero's journey, made for a villain. - Blank Page Beatdown EDIT

No Score Yet Enter the Anime (2019) It's less an exploration of the genre that is a worldwide phenomenon, and more an advertisement for anime that is on Netflix. - Comic Years EDIT

71% Bleach (2018) The Bleach live-action movie is great for audiences wanting to get into the anime, or the manga even. It's a contained story that is accessible to all. - Comic Years EDIT

67% Extraction (2020) Despite Extraction's issues with a very minimal story, it's a lot of fun. The action is a non-stop, hyperventilating barrage of greatness. - Comic Years EDIT

60% Project Power (2020) Overall, Netflix's Project Power is really about how the movie is a fun action entertainer that doesn't need to be more than what it is. - Comic Years EDIT

74% Mulan (2020) This Mulan is a more straight-faced serious telling of the original Hua Mulan legend. It deals with the heart of a woman and how she struggles between her loyalties to family, country, and herself. - Comic Years EDIT

91% Enola Holmes (2020) Enola Holmes tries to do a lot, with a story that has no need for political subplots that would completely go over the head of its Young Adult audience. - Comic Years EDIT

82% The Boys in the Band (2020) It feels like a film inspired by the dialogue-heavy independent films of the mid-to-late 1990s, where the storytellers rely on the performances and conversation to maintain the tension and drama. - Comic Years EDIT

51% Hubie Halloween (2020) The Netflix original movie is really not bad. It tones down the usual Sandler elements into some very harmlessly charming moments. And 'restrained' is really the word for it. - Comic Years EDIT

43% The Lie (2020) The Lie has a very interesting concept, but I'm not sure if it warranted a full-fledged feature film. - Comic Years EDIT

79% Over the Moon (2020) Over The Moon is very much about dealing with loss in life, in a way that's never preachy, by drawing subtle parallels. - Comic Years EDIT
