85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Really? Not one moment of insight into what happened on Cielo Drive? Tarantino drank the Hollywood Kool-Aid. DiCaprio and Pitt get to hang out and do a lot of driving around. - Film Festival Today EDIT

83% Midsommar (2019) A stunning, unexpected nightmare for a group of grad students without a clue. Doesn't leave much room for sympathy for the victims. It's a clever film worth seeing twice. - Film Festival Today EDIT

58% Charlie Says (2019) The creative team behind Patrick Bateman take the teeth out of Manson and we will never know the truth about those 2 horrific nights. Put the blame on too much LSD? - Film Festival Today EDIT

94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Chris Hemsworth walks off with the 3-hour cameo extravaganza. The talking rodent comes in second. Doesn't anybody deserve to die? - Film Festival Today EDIT

93% Us (2019) Jordan Peele does the miraculous: his follow up to GET OUT does not cheat his fans. And if you can dope out the twist, it's terrific. - FilmsInReview.com EDIT

71% Climax (2019) Gaspar Noé is intoxicating and CLIMAX is brilliant. A dazzling evocative, creative sensation. It will influence filmmakers and heralds a new, totally visceral experience. CLIMAX cannot be missed, but be warned, it's not a Hollywood movie. - Film Festival Today EDIT

96% Roma (2018) I felt bad for the dog. - Las Vegas Informer EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2018

Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2018
95% If Beale Street Could Talk (2019) A failed allegory driven by TAXI DRIVER'S music and TD's evocative gritty cinematography. Bad acts are okay if you are poor. - Film Festival Today EDIT

60% The Front Runner (2018) Like refusing to show the planting of the American flag on the moon in THE FIRST MAN, the infamous Monkey Business photo is missing in THE FRONT RUNNER. Whose agenda is being served? - Film Festival Today EDIT

Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2018
66% Suspiria (2018) A fascinating, moody landscape ripe for horror. This "remake" is far more interesting, challenging and demanding then its little-seen, poorly-reviewed original. - FilmsInReview.com EDIT

32% The Predator (2018) The Predator begins its new life merging Iron Man, comedy and the most essential puzzle piece - an "on the spectrum" kid. What's next? "Xenomorph XX121" speaking English with a British accent? Be afraid, be very afraid, it's coming. - FilmsInReview.com EDIT

61% Operation Finale (2018) Not how Eichmann was captured but how did he stay free and living easy for 15 years on the worldwide lam? - FilmsInReview.com EDIT

54% The First Purge (2018) HA! For 100 days in 1994, Rwandans were encouraged to kill with machetes. 800,000 people were murdered by men, women and children hacking up neighbors and taking their land, cattle and homes for themselves. - FilmsInReview.com EDIT

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The director(s) left Han in the background. The iconic Solo deserved a better origin story. A seasoned actor would have demanded more presence and not a hobbled, wimpy love story. A typical Ron Howard movie lacking passion. - FilmsInReview.com EDIT
