89% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) The greatest gift he gives in this film is hope for the future. I envision this film being used for meditation, retreats and in catechesis. ‐ National Catholic Reporter

100% What Lies Upstream (2018) It seems to me that this timely new film establishes that the current attention given to Pruitt's living situation in Washington, D.C., and pay raises for officials in the EPA, are miniscule compared to the environmental disaster ahead. ‐ National Catholic Reporter

79% Chappaquiddick (2018) I question why director John Curran decided to tell this story and make this film now. I guess the term "alternative facts" - made popular by the current administration - explains it all. ‐ National Catholic Reporter

47% The Miracle Season (2018) Sean McNamara directs The Miracle Season with so much empathy that it compels me to give the film a B.K. rating (bring Kleenex). ‐ National Catholic Reporter

100% The Heart of Nuba (2018) The Heart of Nuba is remarkable, to me, for Carlson's ability to show how a Catholic layman lives his faith in a world of conflict with almost no humanitarian aid and is able to support his team's efforts to help the sick, wounded and dying.‐ National Catholic Reporter

44% Paul, Apostle of Christ (2018) [James] Faulkner does a brilliant job of portraying the former persecutor of Jesus' followers. [Jim] Caviezel, in a welcome change from his more solemn performances in film and television, is an animated friend and scribe to Paul. ‐ St. Anthony Messenger

39% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) If I were a Disney executive, this film would embarrass me. Or maybe this is one of those fantasy stories that need to stay the way you first imagined it in your head.‐ National Catholic Reporter

74% Crash (2004) Crash is difficult to watch because of the moral chaos it portrays, but it is best film I have seen in a long time. ‐ Sister Rose at the Movies

93% No Country for Old Men (2007) It's a smart film and pure Coen. It has a point, though some may contest it. But it's not a must-see film for everyone so if you are a Coen fan, don't take your grandmother. She will say it sucks. ‐ Sister Rose at the Movies

91% Slumdog Millionaire (2008) The actors project a special authenticity that engages the viewer. ‐ Sister Rose at the Movies

70% I Can Only Imagine (2018) I Can Only Imagine is probably the best film of the Christian genre that I have seen so far and certainly the best from brothers Jon and Andrew Erwin (October Baby).‐ St. Anthony Messenger

91% Phantom Thread (2018) Phantom Thread is either about two people with serious mental health problems whose lives elegantly collide or about the externalization of interior love so profound that they are willing to go to unfathomable lengths to finally admit it. ‐ St. Anthony Messenger

78% All the Money in the World (2017) [Mark] Wahlberg is credible as the negotiator, while Williams is superb and a worthy foil to her former father-in-law.‐ St. Anthony Messenger

25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) It's as if Eastwood told them to forget the cameras and just be themselves. They are pretty good and believable as first-time actors.‐ National Catholic Reporter

92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) McDonagh is an exceptional non-derivative storyteller and this follow-up to the violently subversively redemptive film "In Bruges" defies brilliant.‐ National Catholic Reporter

83% Polina (Polina, danser sa vie) (2017) The film is interesting enough, especially if dance is your focus.‐ Sister Rose at the Movies

73% Hostiles (2018) It wants to be profound-to show how people of different ethnicities can learn to get along. But it is told predominantly from the white man's perspective, leaving it uneven with a patronizing ending. ‐ St. Anthony Messenger

92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is like watching a Flannery O'Connor novel. It is about the South, its prejudices, and the quirky people who make up the community, told through episodes of violence, sin, dark humor, and transcendent grace.‐ St. Anthony Messenger

52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) [Denzel] Washington is brilliant, as always. Even though the film is a bit heavy on dialogue, I was intrigued.‐ St. Anthony Messenger

85% Wonder (2017) The connection between bullies and entitled parents is starkly drawn. I highly recommend this film, which restarts the conversation about what it means to be a kid who does the right thing when no one is looking.‐ St. Anthony Messenger

94% The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee (2017) The Newspaperman is riveting, relevant and deeply important today when the press, and the freedom of the press, is openly targeted, harangued and demonized as "the enemy" on the national stage.‐ National Catholic Reporter

84% The Square (2017) This slow-starting film picks up speed and action to effectively show the layers of racism in social relationships and the chaos caused by our own inconsistencies in how we see other people.‐ St. Anthony Messenger

40% A Question of Faith (2017) It's easy to see where this story of interconnected lives is going, but issues of grief, forgiveness, guilt, race, and caring for one's neighbor are resolved with the courage of the characters' Christian convictions-and a touch of humor.‐ St. Anthony Messenger

85% It (2017) They are awesome actors who are afraid and heroic fearful and fearless at the same time, eventually willing to lay down their lives for one another to make up for the evil done by the clown and that is perpetrated by the adults and bullies in their lives‐ National Catholic Reporter

43% Robin Hood (2010) The irony here is between the powerful merge of cinematic storytelling, history, and the dominant role of the market, because if Sir Ridley Scott's epic doesn't make a profit, there won't be a sequel, and more's the pity.‐ National Catholic Reporter
