      Peak Season (2023) Between the gorgeously considered shots of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where Peak Season takes place, and the small details defining each character, the film is a breath of fresh, high-altitude air. - The Daily Beast

      BlackBerry (2023) BlackBerry is as much about self-immolation as it is deterioration of relationships at the hands of hubris—and it’s that dramatic, tragic balance that makes it more interesting than simply another entry in the growing tech company biopic genre. - The Daily Beast

      Down Low (2023) This is not a film devoid of laughs, but it is also chock full of tastelessness—whether or not you are a prude, by whom Down Low is decidedly not meant to be seen. - The Daily Beast

      Olive, the Other Reindeer (1999) There’s great music, including a song from Blitzen’s cousin Schntizel, voiced by R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe; wonderfully storybook-ish animation; and smart, wry humor, making Olive more of a silly wintertime adventure than a saccharine holiday movie. - The Daily Beast

      Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) The movie allows for a surprisingly impactful reappraisal of a long-held Spidey franchise consensus. - Slate

      King Richard (2021) Venus and Serena Williams are the names we rightly remember, but King Richard remains fixated on the male bravado that pushed for them to get their names out there in the first place. - Slate

      Black Is King (2020) Everything about Black Is King is enviable. It's not just a high-quality production. It's a multicultural masterpiece sorely needed in a world where we are striving to be less monocultural. - Vox

      Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018) It's not just the absurd action that's so lovable, but also creator Akira Toriyama's trademark sense of self-aware silliness that ensures we don't forget this threadbare premise. - Polygon

      Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! (2017) The Pokmon anime has hardly adhered to the rules of the original games. But Pokmon: I Choose You! goes a step further, ending with a moment so bizarre that my entire theater howled in disbelief. - Polygon

      Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016) Sometimes seeing that something or someone you loved as a kid has stayed the same after all these years is comforting. But this film wears out its welcome fast. - Polygon

      Passengers (2016) Passengers is not technically a horror film, but that's the mode in which it would work best. Instead, it's a predictable space-saving drama, one whose big twist is both not so big at all and its ultimate undoing. - Polygon

      Steve Jobs (2015) 'Forced and unbalanced' adequately describe the film overall. Danny Boyle's cinematic flourishes - abstract, anticipatory cutaways and dramatic, iconography-heavy montages establishing the time between acts - don't best serve Sorkin's script. - Polygon

      Star Trek Beyond (2016) It blandly goes where it's been before. - Polygon

      My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2016) My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea isn't as wonderful overall as the best of Studio Ghibli or Pixar, but it's the kind of small, unique picture that's only possible in animation. - Polygon

      Jem and the Holograms (2015) It preaches an important maxim -- love yourself for who you are -- and then immediately contradicts it by masking its characters and everything about them in artifice without artistry. - Polygon

      Gods of Egypt (2016) [It's] not satisfied with being your average forgettable blockbuster. No, it wants to be something much worse: a big-budget disaster whose existence is meant to lull those unfortunate few watching to sleep, only to shock them awake in a fit of rage. - Polygon

      Anomalisa (2015) A remarkably human film with a heart as big as its story is small; yet a version of the film that more proudly wears its medium on its sleeve is one that the animation world can only dream of. - Polygon

      X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) X-Men Apocalypse, for as big and dumb as it is, isn't much fun at all. Instead, the mutants' latest outing undercuts its occasional hints of heart and humor with an excessive runtime, self-serious story and, yes, a lot of big dumbness. - Polygon

      Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Not every joke lands, especially if you're outside of the 18-year-old boy demographic. But for every tepid gag or cringeworthy goof, there's a seriously catchy song to more than make up for it. - Polygon

      A Letter to Momo (2011) The stunning animation, from the energy of its characters' faces and bodies to those entrancing backgrounds securely rank the film alongside other worthy entries in post-Miyazaki anime. - Film Comment Magazine
