3/5 Camp Wedding "Camp Wedding infuses our society's obsession with social media and smartphone technology by placing it within a horror movie."

3.5/5 Ready or Not "Ready Or Not is the kind of film where you laugh so much that it hurts!"

7/10 Ready or Not "Ready or Not is a devious good time with enough laughs and thrills to keep you engaged..."

The Heiresses (Las Herederas) "The Heiresses is a quiet and spare lesbian drama. It will resonate with anyone who has settled into their ways and suddenly finds themselves having to reinvent their life. "

3.5/5 The Sun Is Also a Star "The Sun Is Also a Star is undeniably saccharine and yet is not without its charms. It tries to explore aspects of modern racial conflict and cultural assimilation, but by keeping its focus on the romance, Star loses most of the power it possesses."

3/4 Jawline "The film is refreshing for its lack of pearl-clutching, its ambivalence in assessing what it's like to be a commodity with a will and a nervous system."

1.5/4 Ready or Not "A "Get Out" that doesn't get it, a "Purge" that pulls its punches. "

5/5 Once Upon a Time In Hollywood "[Beats] to the obsessive pop-culture pulse of Quentin Tarantino like no film of his ever has."

7/10 Ready or Not "It's a delightfully decadent dark carnival that seems primed for cult movie status."

Neither Wolf Nor Dog "A film about respecting and trying to understand the history, traditions and cultures of others."

4/5 Pain and Glory (Dolor y gloria) "Pain and Glory is Almodóvar's most deeply affecting film to date that highlights Banderas' talent through a subtly emotive performance."

Ready or Not "This genre mashup -a killer concept executed with gusto- delivers a playful and thrilling cat-and-mouse game. [Full review in Spanish] "

4/5 Hale County This Morning, This Evening "It's not for everyone, but if you give it a chance, it's possible you might end up with, at least, an image or moment engraved in your brain. [Full review in Spanish]"

Detective K: Secret of the Living Dead "The script reads like someone wrote a completely serious Joseon-era vampire mystery, and then some producer arbitrarily decided to throw Detective K and Seo-pil in there to lighten the mood."

Be With You (Ji-geum Man-na-leo Gab-ni-da) "The movie delves into the ways in which love is a conscious decision, even if we don't realize it. Soo-ah's presence looms largely over Woo-jin and Ji-ho even in death, because they allow her to."

3/4 Ready or Not ""Ready or Not" wouldn't work if Weaving wasn't so charming, and smart, as the tenacious heroine."

Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum "Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum is unapologetically a gimmick horror film, where the only relevant character trait is narcissism prefacing a cosmic reminder of just how insignificant any individual human life really is."

The Accidental Detective 2: In Action "Sure, we want Dae-man to follow his dreams. But we're also constantly left wondering whether Dae-man is actually any good at his stated dream profession."

The Great Battle "I loved how brute force is never the answer- trying to shove soldiers into a bottleneck just gets them killed, which is why Emperor Taizong keeps having to regroup the army, to his increasing psychotic agitation."

Dark Figure of Crime "While Tae-oh would obviously like us to believe that he's some sort of psychopathic criminal mastermind, we see pretty consistently that the man is just, well, really petty and obviously starved for attention."

Feng Shui (Myung-dang) "Note how Jae-sang and Ha-eun manage to build up an entire team of highly skilled geomancers, most of whom never actually do anything. Seriously, the most I can remember about those guys is that one of them stutters a lot for exactly one scene."

Intimate Strangers "Sometimes the mockery is gentle, other times farcical, and other times it feels like the universe is playing a horrific joke that only seems funny to us because we know the situation isn't as bad as it looks."

The Battle: Roar to Victory "The Battle: Roar to Victory does not deal with patriotism in the abstract but rather more immediate reasons why a person would give up their lives to face certain death at the hands of well-equipped career soldiers."

Where'd You Go, Bernadette "Director Richard Linklater excels with quirky pictures that focus on distinct people and all of the actors do an exceptional job in bringing life to their unusual personalities."
