1/5 The Curse of La Llorona "A watch-watching 90-minute horror flick based on the Conjuring Universe formula. You've seen this a dozen times & done better. Not that any of them are all that well done. "

2/5 Disneynature: Penguins "Beautifully shot & who doesn't love penguins? I love them but wrapping this in a so-so story & sticking uninspired narration by Ed Helms into the mix just didn't work for me. "

3/5 Breakthrough "Barely fresh. Chrissy Metz rocks. Other than her performance, this is a faith-based flick that often falls through its own ice. Definitely one for the Hallmark TV movie of the week crowd. "

B+ Disneynature: Penguins "I never grow tired of experiencing the wonders of God's universe and this documentary is a prime example of just how strange and beautiful even the most remote parts of our planet can be. "

Someone Great "A movie that's best experienced while lazing on the couch, preferably on the morning after a wild night out."

4/5 Us "Executed with stylistic brio and acted accordingly, Us is a smart move that will keep you on the edge of your seats."

B- Red Joan "Inspired by the story of a real-life spy, Red Joan's world of Cambridge socialists is entertaining enough, though the film seems more interested in her fictional love affairs than in the politics."

A- Under the Silver Lake "Upon first watch, it's series of bonkers and inspired interludes with a head scratcher of an ending. Once upon a time I thought the same thing about The Big Lebowski, and this one also may require a few more to fully appreciate."

2/4 If the Dancer Dances "It's less of an insightful backstage documentary than a gushing, sycophantic love letter to the late Merce Cunningham."

5/5 Rafiki "As played by Mugatsia and Munyiva, Kena and Ziki have a curiosity between them that goes beyond magnetism, seeming to go to their souls. The actors are completely mesmerizing to watch."

D+ The Curse of La Llorona "The Curse of La Llorona benefits from the occasional build of suspense, but this sloppy cinematic universe of horror has become the very definition of what 2013's "The Conjuring" was initially trying to combat: smart thrills over cheap scares. "

4.5/5 Captain Marvel "Captain Marvel is the perfect mix of humor and action. Brie Larson brilliantly brought Carol Danvers to life in this film. A must see movie!"

Teen Spirit "We knew Elle Fanning could act, but can she sing? She excels at both and despite the predictable story line, her performance overcomes the shortcoming leading to a sensational climax. "

2.5/5 Aquaman "Aquaman was a film that could have been great, but fell flat. The amazing CGI did not make up for the cheesey jokes and what felt like a dumbed down script."

4/5 Alita: Battle Angel "Alita: Battle Angel is a truly fun and wild ride. An action packed coming of age type story, with incredible CGI makes it a must see."

8/10 Fast Color ""Fast Color" will hit you as the big moments bring weight to its emotional conclusion. I was moved, and I saw the colors"

Teen Spirit "While there are some entertaining moments in Teen Spirit, its well-traveled route doesn't offer any new insights or profound meditations on this culture of instant success."

Little Woods "Little Woods is an assured debut, tinged with moments of anger, strength, frustration, and a glimmer of hope that comes from doing that you need to do to help those you love, even if it means going against a system that does not want you to hope."

Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman "Even though it plays like the TV documentary that is [...], the filmmakers and subjects make a compelling case for an argument with the power to connect us all."

Oklahoma City "Oklahoma City is effective when connecting 1995 to the decades of militant white nationalism that preceded it, yet Goodman bungles the documentary's relevance to the present."

Landline "Robespierre and co-writer Elisabeth Holm craft an indelible portrait of the women in the Jacobs family, each at different life stages yet all struggling to feel the love with important companions."

Person to Person "The old pan that something is "less than the sum of its parts" does not quite apply here."

A Ghost Story "Lowery introduces a narrative conceit to remove us from our traditional comprehension of time and leaves us to ponder what forces still operate in these conditions."

Newness "Newness exceeds the corny "how we live now" tropes, too, by giving us two characters we want to see succeed in breaking their generational baggage."

Call Me by Your Name "Luca Guadagnino's film is sumptuous, sultry, and sincere. It's soaked with sensuality but defined by restrained tension and yearning expectation."
