2/10 48% A Nightmare Wakes (2020) With a lifeless cast and an even more lifeless script, A Nightmare Wakes is a bad dream you'll wish to wake up from. - The Young Folks EDIT

4/10 90% Promising Young Woman (2020) Fennell doesn't beat around the bush in pointing out just how not nice these "nice guys" are, but her message gets lost in translation. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 47% Evil Eye (2020) Unfortunately, culture and representation can't save Evil Eye from its hollow story. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 69% Rent-A-Pal (2020) Rent-A-Pal is a compelling character study but lacks the oomph and suspense of a traditional thriller. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 93% Yes, God, Yes (2020) When the film focuses on Alice and her emotional turmoil, it's sweet, non-judgemental, and even a little inspiring. - The Young Folks EDIT

9/10 93% We Are Little Zombies (2020) Nagahisa's eclectic debut doesn't talk down to these kids at all; it lets them approach grief the way they want to-whether it's through starting a band or stealing a garbage truck. - The Young Folks EDIT

9/10 87% Emma. (2020) De Wilde and Catton work together to recreate a classic story that focuses not only on the romance but also on class relations that these typical narratives tend to avoid. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Instead of focusing on the toxic masculinity of male superheroes, Birds of Prey allows women to be in the spotlight without the shackle a male presence. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 91% In Fabric (2019) This could have been an effective anthology series, but instead, the film is reduced to two different stories that don't have enough time to flesh themselves out. - The Young Folks EDIT

9/10 87% Hustlers (2019) In the hands of the wrong director, Hustlers could have turned gratuitous and exploitative. However, Scafaria handles it with a dynamic female gaze that seeks to celebrate women's bodies instead of sexualizing them. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 63% Child's Play (2019) [Tyler Burton] Smith and director Lars Klevberg keep Mancini's jabs at capitalism a prominent theme of the film, but they fail to capture what made the original franchise stand out in the first place: Chucky. - The Young Folks EDIT

9/10 89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The film revels in the absurd notion that this ordinary- looking man can take on five guys at once using either a knife or a horse. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) The screenplay's weaknesses are overlooked by the film's astounding spectacles, most notably the Motorball scene. - The Young Folks EDIT

3/10 39% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Even with an action film being the end goal, Alvarez can't even conjure up any fun sequences to make up for the lack of characterization. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 79% Halloween (2018) Even though Michael is primarily known for his impressive work with a kitchen knife, Green still manages to make his kills feel fresh. - The Young Folks EDIT

9/10 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) After five installments, you would think that a franchise would be way past its prime, but Mission Impossible is one of the rare exceptions. - The Young Folks EDIT

9/10 99% Eighth Grade (2018) Burnham doesn't revel in Kayla's misery or exploit her for shock value. She does have her own share of heartache, but plenty of moments of happiness too. - The Young Folks EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
7/10 69% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) A movie meant to cash in on one of Star Wars' most iconic characters. But going in with those kinds of expectations leaves you with a movie that is pretty fun most of the time. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 97% Ava (2018) Not too often do we see an Iranian film starring and directed by women, but Ava is a good start for much-needed representation. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 84% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) Borg Vs. McEnroe could have been great if it didn't try to be so ambitious. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) While the animation may outshine the writing, Isle of Dogs is still an Anderson film through and through: filled with wonder and intricate detail in every scene with a warm color palette and sharp dialogue to match - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 49% Flower (2018) While Deutch's performance is one for the books, Flower will be forgotten two hours after the credits roll. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 88% American Animals (2018) Without Layton's unconventional style, American Animals would just be another heist movie. But with the documentary style woven into the narrative, it turns into a film about privilege and the lies of the American Dream. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 33% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) Shaye is the saving grace of this franchise, but even she can't save this movie from the January curse. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 90% I, Tonya (2018) I, Tonya is a very complicated story that will have our hearts pulled in five different directions at once. We'll laugh, cry, and be angry on her behalf. And most of all, we'll feel guilty. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 86% My Friend Dahmer (2017) Myers emphasizes that he wasn't at fault for his old friend's tragic decline.He's able to humanize Dahmer without minimizing his horrific crimes, and by doing so, gives us an engrossing glimpse into the infamous serial killer. - The Young Folks EDIT

4/10 33% Jigsaw (2017) Jigsaw isn't a horrible film, per se. It just barely feels a part of the Saw universe. After having over a decade of creative traps and vile, claustrophobic settings, this latest addition lacks the heart and zest to stand out from most of the sequels. - The Young Folks EDIT

3/10 4% Flatliners (2017) For anyone who has seen the original Flatliners, there's no reason to see this remake because it hardly covers any new ground. Even if they're not familiar with the franchise, there's still no reason to seek this film out. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Professor Marston and the Wonder Women may not be completely accurate, but that doesn't dampen the message it sends. Trying to embrace your fluid sexuality in a conservative society is as relevant today as it was over 100 years ago. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 79% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) An Inconvenient Sequel emphasizes that the climate change movement is more than just "Save the Trees." - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 74% Landline (2017) Landline never quite finds its emotional footing. As a result, it makes for a generic drama/comedy hybrid that will be forgotten the next day. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 88% Band Aid (2017) At its core, Band Aid is a traditional romantic comedy. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Blood Road (2017) Even if you don't like sentimental stories, watch Blood Road anyway. The view alone is worth it. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) It's a shame that Disney won't let this franchise sink. Soon enough, we'll forget why we loved this series in the first place. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 85% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) Regardless of who he made it for, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea is a very talented debut that will, hopefully, put Shaw and Samborski on people's radars. - The Young Folks EDIT

10/10 99% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) Animated films have the stigma that they're only for kids, but My Life As a Zucchini proves that it can be just for adults too. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 71% XX (2017) It's great that these women were able to showcase their talents but it was more of an appetizer than a full meal. If you love the VHS series, then you'll probably have fun with this; just don't expect it to keep you up at night. - The Young Folks EDIT
