      Pain Hustlers (2023) “Pain Hustlers” entertains thanks to its strong leads but it’s hard not to find it a derivative look at a tough topic that relies on tropes from far superior movies. - TheWrap

      A Haunting in Venice (2023) “A Haunting in Venice” is a moody Gothic horror feature that feels completely refreshing in a landscape of jump scares and gore. - TheWrap

      The Last Voyage of the Demeter (2023) There’s just nothing about this interpretation of the character that makes him stand out as Count…Dracula versus just another standard vampire - TheWrap

      Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story (2023) “Gran Turismo” works best because it eschews its video game origins quickly before settling into a standard race car film. - TheWrap

      Haunted Mansion (2023) “Haunted Mansion” is a fun summer throwback to the likes of 2003’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.” Inventive fun for every member of the family with a phenomenal lead performance by Stanfield. - TheWrap

      Cobweb (2023) “Cobweb,” ultimately would have worked better as a short or even an installment in an anthology series. At a certain point Starr and Caplan take a backseat, leaving the last half hour of the movie to feel interminably long. - TheWrap

      Every Body (2023) “Every Body” is a must-watch for anyone from a marginalized community or anyone looking at the current political landscape we’re in. - TheWrap

      The Listener (2022) What Buscemi and screenwriter Alessandro Camon craft with “The Listener” feels like a throwback to the features of the 1970s. It’s a character study, a moody atmospheric piece of contemplation... - TheWrap

      Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. (2023) “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” is a fantastic entry. Heartfelt, compassionate, funny, and frank it has the makings of becoming a new classic in the film canon. - TheWrap

      Renfield (2023) “Renfield” is a great example of how Universal could resurrect its Dark Universe. Take tangential characters or questions audiences have wondered about and find a way to actually explore them. - TheWrap

      The Blind Man Who Did Not Want to See Titanic (2021) There’s certainly enough charm to spare from the film’s leads, but the storytelling too often relies on disabled people in peril and other tropes that simply regurgitate what we’ve seen. - TheWrap

      The Lady Eve (1941) A solid film with phenomenal performances that’ll leave you thinking amongst the slapstick. It’s certainly a film I’d recommend, but it’s far from one of my favorites like I’d anticipated. - Ticklish Business

      Blonde (2001) Chopra’s movie isn’t interested in the gruesomeness of Marilyn’s death, or the sordid sex life we’ve come to identify with her. The portrayal of Marilyn is easily the best we’ve seen, for her perspective especially. - Ticklish Business

      Dreaming Walls: Inside the Chelsea Hotel (2022) The film presents a contemplative elegy for a hotel whose history is being eroded, but by focusing on the literal walls only further removes the voices of the very people who live (and dream) inside of them. - indieWire

      BEAUTY (2022) Dosunmu’s airless directing and Waithe’s thin script only amount to loud allegory that never goes anywhere and drowns out any compelling ideas that might be worth singing. - indieWire

      Subject (2022) "Subject" is a great place to start for getting at the heart of why audiences’ love the truth of documentary, and what that truth really means. - indieWire

      Good Girl Jane (2022) It’s hard to shake how hollow everything feels within “Good Girl Jane.” For all the individual performances, the feature never comes off as more than a supersized short film. - indieWire

      Allswell (2022) It feels like a Lifetime series pilot, with the women adhering to one stereotype each. These aren’t characters reconciling with their past; it’s three disparate characters forced to be in one movie. - indieWire

      Sansón and Me (2022) A melancholy experience. As Reyes tells Andrade early in the process, this documentary won’t exonerate him or get him released from prison, but for Andrade, the opportunity to tell his story and have a living example of his memories saved is enough. - indieWire

      Adrienne (2021) Adrienne is a beautiful testament to the power of Adrienne Shelly and will hopefully inspire fans, new and old, to revisit her work. Bring tissues. - indieWire

      Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts (2022) The Harry Potter 20th Anniversary Reunion Special is essentially a long bonus feature youd probably find on a DVD or Blu-ray box set. I wasnt convinced a time or two that old interviews werent just reused. - indieWire

      Encanto (2021) The Colombian setting and casita are lush and inviting but, more importantly, the distinction in the characters and their facial expressions is wonderful. - indieWire

      Bruised (2020) "Bruised" isn't breaking any new ground from a narrative standpoint, but it does show the strength of Halle Berry as a director, boasting a powder keg of dominating performances within a simplistic story. - indieWire

      Snakehead (2021) Because it's not saying anything particularly new, when it does fall into a gangster narrative, it has a vibrancy that you'll want more of. - indieWire

      America Latina (2021) Despite Germano's valiant attempts to hold this movie together, it becomes silly watching him attempt to get at the heart of a mystery that is anything but. - indieWire

      Cinderella (2021) The flaws in the narrative are nothing in comparison to the vibrancy and energy on display with each and every musical number, worth dancing for, maybe even in a pair of glass slippers. - indieWire

      Ruth: Justice Ginsburg in Her Own Words (2019) There is a tendency to overly explain things as opposed to letting Ginsburg's words flow, but if you've enjoyed the previous looks at the notorious RBG, this is a new one offers a different angle to her remarkable story. - indieWire

      AKA Jane Roe (2020) One of the most significant figures in the 20th Century is divisive, but it would have been great to narrow the focus to her feelings about that divisiveness and not the people who profited. - indieWire

      Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind (2020) Considering how sanitized "What Remains Behind" is with regards to Wood's rebellious tendencies it's a strawman argument to situate Wood against famous self-destructive stars. - indieWire

      Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Birds of Prey is a colorful and rollicking story that puts women front and center seeking autonomy, not just from their comic book origins but the fandom seeking the same old thing. - FanSided

      The Grudge (2020) At 93 minutes, what is perceived as a slow burn is drawn out and painfully dull. The Grudge is another remake no one asked for, and the characters imply that as well. - Culturess

      Cats (2019) Cats is a jellicle disaster (I'm using that term about as well as the movie does). The actors appear to enjoy embarrassing themselves, but that's the only enjoyment derived from this musical hellscape. - FanSided
