      Black Widow (2021) Jordan Hoffman If by "good" you mean, "I sat in the dark for two hours and barely thought about my upcoming doctor's appointment or my car payments," then sure, it's good.

      Leona (2018) Jordan Hoffman There's a level of maturity and realism to this story that is thrilling.

      Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Jordan Hoffman The plot is bewildering, the character motivations are muddy, and the action sequences - table stakes for this sort of thing - are underwhelming.

      The King of Staten Island (2020) Jordan Hoffman Despite "looking like an anorexic panda," [Pete Davidson] is a tidal wave of charisma and clever quips.

      Avengers: Endgame (2019) Jordan Hoffman The 3-hour culmination of 22 chapters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is worth going back in time and watching again.

      Ask Dr. Ruth (2019) Jordan Hoffman Most of "Ask Dr. Ruth" is nonstop fun. No one else could look their interviewer in the eye and say "this is a stupid question!" in such a friendly, lovable way.

      Sunset (2018) Jordan Hoffman Approach as you would an impressionist painting.
      Posted Mar 22, 2019
      Untogether (2018) Jordan Hoffman Untogether is a very poorly made film with no real conclusion, and does nothing to dispel the notion that sometimes wealthy people make movies just because they can, not because they should.
      Posted Feb 08, 2019
      The Invisibles (2017) Jordan Hoffman Levi is still with us at age 94, and living in Germany. So for her, at least, hope and luck somehow were enough.
      Posted Jan 18, 2019
      Who Will Write Our History (2018) Jordan Hoffman It's not easy to thread this type of formalist needle, but Grossman maintains a level of urgency that is (and I hate describing movies about the Holocaust this way) quite entertaining.
      Posted Jan 18, 2019
      Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh (2018) Jordan Hoffman [Cements] the fact that Adam Sandler, whether you find him to be one of the comic greats or an immature idiot, is a mensch of the highest order.
      Posted Nov 12, 2018
      The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) Jordan Hoffman Fans of the Coen Brothers' work will be thrilled with "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs," as it offers so many varieties on what they do well. It regularly jumps between moments of loquacious absurdity to dusty existentialism.

      American Dharma (2018) Jordan Hoffman If anything, we should be thanking Errol Morris, who sat across from Stephen Bannon for days on end listening to his stories - so we didn't have to.
      Posted Oct 18, 2018
      306 Hollywood (2018) Jordan Hoffman For every moment that feels overdone there are three moments that are genuinely touching. Then comes the coup-de-grâce.
      Posted Sep 28, 2018
      Memoir of War (2017) Jordan Hoffman A punch to the gut - but also remarkable for its specificity.
      Posted Aug 21, 2018
      Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Jordan Hoffman Paul Rudd is neither an aunt nor a WASP but he's fantastic in "Ant-Man and the Wasp."
      Posted Jul 06, 2018
      Spiral (2017) Jordan Hoffman I doubt I'll have stronger mixed feelings about a movie this year than Laura Fairrie's documentary "Spiral"
      Posted Jun 29, 2018
      Itzhak (2017) Jordan Hoffman An inspiring and upbeat film.
      Posted Jun 05, 2018
      Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Jordan Hoffman So it turns out Han Solo may have a lot in common with your grandparents.
      Posted May 18, 2018
      The 12th Man (2017) Jordan Hoffman The best freedom-fighting reindeer in all of cinema can be found right here in "The 12th Man."
      Posted May 08, 2018
      Love, Gilda (2018) Jordan Hoffman There's no doubt that D'Apolito loves Gilda, and as a result, this movie is pointless and anodyne.
      Posted Apr 22, 2018
      Hitler's Hollywood (2017) Jordan Hoffman "Hitler's Hollywood" is a nightmare and a warning in the least expected package: a cinema studies crash-course. It's up to us in the audience to learn from it.
      Posted Apr 11, 2018
      7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Jordan Hoffman Entebbe would have been far better served to simply tell the story of what happened, not set a stage for political speechifying. Every other movie about Israel does that, you'd think if any story could stay focused on some glory it would be this one.
      Posted Mar 02, 2018
      Annihilation (2018) Jordan Hoffman Can a flower be scary? Yes, a flower can be scary.
      Posted Feb 23, 2018
      Son of God (2014) Jordan Hoffman The film's low quality, however, is undeniable. The chintzy music over the closing credits, just after Jesus ascends to heaven in a cloud of bundled iMac special effects, is just laughable.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Two Trains Runnin' (2016) Jordan Hoffman But for those who don't know about the martyred voter registration activists, this new film is an awakening on two levels.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Triple 9 (2016) Jordan Hoffman At the end of the day, stories need to be about characters, not types. While nothing that ought to inspire a letter writing campaign from the ADL,"Triple 9" fails to make it past shorthand.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Ben-Hur (2016) Jordan Hoffman The movie isn't really saying anything, and is just cruising on the fumes left over from our associations with a classic.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Son of Saul (2015) Jordan Hoffman Perhaps one of the most striking works of art about the Holocaust yet made.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Junction 48 (2016) Jordan Hoffman "Junction 48" is something worth checking out - particularly if you are a fan of Arabic hip-hop, which, now that I've seen this movie, I guess I am.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Ben-Gurion, Epilogue (2016) Jordan Hoffman It is an often-mocked image, but it is explained here in terms of someone, even in their 80s, looking for change wherever one can find it. It may not be a bad idea to embrace other perspectives no matter where they come from.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      The Settlers (2016) Jordan Hoffman [Shimon] Dotan's documentary, is a commendable and effective work of propaganda. It gives you just enough of the "other side" to make it seem fair and balanced.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Foxtrot (2017) Jordan Hoffman This is very much a universal story. And one shot with grace, confidence, humor and a visual flair that even makes cans of potted meat look beautiful.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Disobedience (2017) Jordan Hoffman At first it seems like a typical push-pull between tradition and modernity, but once we dig in with the characters, it has the crackle and sympathy of real life.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      mother! (2017) Jordan Hoffman When you eventually see this you may hate it, but you can't say it isn't brilliant.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Call Me by Your Name (2017) Jordan Hoffman "Call Me By Your Name" can be considered an idealistic film, but that's only natural for something about young people experiencing something wonderful for the first time.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      The Testament (2017) Jordan Hoffman "The Testament" is that sort of big movie, and concludes with an extra layer of buried poignancy. No, you actually haven't seen this story before.
      Posted Feb 01, 2018
      Obvious Child (2014) Jordan Hoffman Beyond the identity politics and humor, Obvious Child goes the extra mile to represent a seldom voiced, moderate position about a hot button topic.
      Posted Jan 04, 2018
      A German Life (2016) Jordan Hoffman If we are to Never Forget, we must also try, as difficult as it is, to understand.
      Posted Dec 21, 2017
      Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Jordan Hoffman 'The Last Jedi' walks a fine line for fans, creating a solid standalone film that shines within the franchise canon.

      Phantom Thread (2017) Jordan Hoffman For Daniel Day-Lewis, I dare call it a perfect fit.

      The Post (2017) Jordan Hoffman There could not be a more timely film.
      Posted Dec 07, 2017
      Justice League (2017) Jordan Hoffman The whole world loves these characters, and so much time, effort and money has been hurled at this property. But the story in Justice League is practically non-existent -- and, even more insulting, the big Hollywood special effects look like garbage.
      Posted Nov 15, 2017
      Wonder Wheel (2017) Jordan Hoffman A terrific, dark look at nostalgia.
      Posted Oct 13, 2017
      Hannah Arendt (2012) Jordan Hoffman This all may sound all very heavy, but it is important to also point out that Hannah Arendt is also a good movie.
      Posted Sep 26, 2017
      No Place on Earth (2012) Jordan Hoffman This film, while hardly being a masterpiece of cinema, has more than its share of gripping moments and emotional revelations.
