      Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania (2023) Ineye Komonibo Clumsy storytelling and underdeveloped characters unfortunately prevented it from being the spectacular strong start that Phase 5 needed it to be.

      Koi ... Mil Gaya (2003) Katherine Singh This is the Bollywood version of E.T., and that’s all you need to know.

      Devdas (2002) Katherine Singh This is a tragic romance in pretty much every sense of the word and features an incredible musical number with Rai and co-star Madhuri Dixit spotlighting classical music and dance.

      Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995) Katherine Singh Seriously, 25 years after its release, it’s still being shown in a theater in Mumbai. If you’re going to watch one Bollywood movie, make it this one.

      Monsoon Wedding (2001) Katherine Singh This comedy may not seem like your typical Bollywood movie for the time, but that’s exactly why you should watch it.
      Posted Oct 04, 2022
      Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (2001) Katherine Singh The movie is a must-watch for the very fact that it covers a period of time not often seen in films, and — albeit in a roundabout way — addresses the inequality of colonial rule in India.
      Posted Oct 04, 2022
      Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) Katherine Singh Years pass and the pair reconnect, but you’ll have to watch the film for all the juicy details. This movie features a ton of funky (and sometimes cringe-inducing) '90s fashion.

      Do Revenge (2022) Katherine Singh Our emotions aren't always cotton candy like the film's vivid aesthetics may suggest. In the end, it's that rage and anger that — albeit in a roundabout way — helps them come to their final realizations...
      Posted Oct 03, 2022
      Blonde (2022) Katherine Singh Not only does the film pile on the gratuitous horrors, adding hard-to-stomach events and scenes that aren’t rooted in reality, but it also presents viewers with an aestheticized version of the star’s actual trauma.
      Posted Oct 03, 2022
      Not Okay (2022) Katherine Singh We’re offered a quieter, more nuanced alternative to the redemption arc we’re so used to seeing.
      Posted Oct 03, 2022
      Don't Worry Darling (2022) Katherine Singh What was meant to be a triumph on screen has instead become a mere mention in the footnotes of all this drama, and leaves viewers with a story that's as empty as the egg shells in Victory.
      Posted Oct 03, 2022
      A Jazzman's Blues (2022) Ineye Komonibo A Jazzman’s Blues is far from a perfect movie, but it is without a doubt Perry’s best work in almost 20 years of working in Hollywood.

      Men (2022) Refinery29 Editors Men left me feeling more anger at men, specifically Alex Garland, rather than providing the emotional release I had hoped for. The film is a performative action.

      King Richard (2021) Ineye Komonibo It's a tale of perseverance and triumph, but also a crucial reminder of the intention Black athletes need to have when pursuing a sport.

      CODA (2021) Erin Schoen Marsh It's a wonderful film, and the more people who watch it, the more likely the entertainment industry will be to cast deaf actors and feature deaf stories.
      Posted Aug 14, 2021
      Awake (2021) Lia Beck The issue is that Awake takes this very complicated premise, doesn't explain it entirely, and proceeds to pile on the plot holes.
      Posted Jun 11, 2021
      Cruella (2021) Anne Cohen Does Cruella really explain how a woman was born brilliant, bad, and a little bit mad? Not really. But if you're looking to spend a little over two hours in a Devil Wears Prada-like dance between two quite fabulous Emmas, then step right up.

      Carmen: A Hip Hopera (2001) Kathleen Newman-Bremang As much as there are flashes of brilliance in Carmen: A Hip Hopera, there is also the mess.

      Charli XCX: Alone Together (2021) Natalie Morin Charli XCX's unique relationship with the Angels is the magic ingredient truly makes the film shine.
      Posted Mar 20, 2021
      Coming 2 America (2021) Ineye Komonibo The sequel's attempt to modernize the story has a reverse effect: Rather than propel the narrative forward, it neutralizes what made it so impactful at the time, rewriting the past instead of forging the future.

      Rocks (2019) Jessica Morgan If you've lived in a city, you've seen these girls; you've been these girls. You can't help but feel the warmth of nostalgia as you watch Rocks and her friends trying to find the joy in a world that is so often against them.

      The Forty-Year-Old Version (2020) Kathleen Newman-Bremang I'm going to be yelling about how good this movie is for a long time.

      The Wedding Planner (2001) Anne Cohen From the very first scene, in which she comforts a distraught father by handing him a Valium from her trusty catch-all kit all while juggling three or four other minor crises, Lopez fills the screen.

      Roald Dahl's The Witches (2020) Anne Cohen All in all, what's most striking about The Witches is just how much fun Hathway appears to be having...

      Holidate (2020) Anne Cohen Holidate may be the movie equivalent of Peeps -- without substance, artificially flavored, consumed as an afterthought -- but Roberts is the bright dye that will make you forget the time it made you gag.

      The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) Anne Cohen Sometimes, life does art one better.

      The Glorias (2020) Anne Cohen [The film] is sometimes messy; it's ambitious and artsy in ways that don't always work. But by painting Steinem's story on such a large and intricate canvas, Taymor sets the stage for a new generation of biopics interrogating the legacy of women leaders.

      The Bodyguard (1992) Anne Cohen Houston's face, as she loses herself in the melody out there on a quiet porch in the woods, is a reminder of all she gave to this role, and this movie - and why it's always worth rewatching.

      Relic (2020) Anne Cohen The great power of Relic, Natalie Erika James' terrifying directorial debut, is how deftly it straddles the blurry line between reality and the supernatural.

      Knock Down the House (2019) Elena Nicolaou If anything, filmmakers could have spent more time with these organizations... Instead, one gets the sense [Rachel] Lears, like the viewer, was swept up into capturing Ocasio-Cortez' near mythic rise.

      Harriet (2019) Stephanie Long Despite casting backlash, Erivo's portrayal of Tubman is gripping, capturing Harriet's determination, strength, and fortitude in a way that's yet to be seen on screen.

      Charlie Says (2018) Anne Cohen Charlie Says makes a strong case for an even grayer area: That perhaps these women can be victims and guilty of horrific, unpardonable crimes. It's an unsettling thought. But at least, unlike the exaltation of Ted Bundy's abundant charm, it's a new one.
