      All the Way (2016) Kristi Turnquist Cranston, thankfully, doesn't overplay any of Johnson's moods. His subtlety and intelligence keep Johnson human, and as multi-dimensional as the man himself.

      The Vixen (1916) Oregonian Staff After a lay-off of [a few pictures], during which Theda typified all that was noble, good and self-sacrificing, she flings herself with abandon into her heavy stuff in The Vixen.

      Hamilton (2020) Kristi Turnquist With its characters talking of revolution and rebellion, and debating what America should look like, "Hamilton" feels both like a a classic, and a report from the front lines of contemporary life.

      Back to God's Country (1919) Oregonian Staff [Shipman] has demonstrated in this opportunity that she has not only the personal charm but the brains to warrant making her the center of a big picture.

      Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made (2020) Kristi Turnquist With its delicate balance of fanciful story and real-world details, "Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made" is entertaining both for kids and for adults.

      Deadwood: The Movie (2019) Kristi Turnquist As with the original series, what's exceptional about "Deadwood: The Movie" isn't the story, but the gallery of characters created by Milch, and the extraordinary cast.

      Jennifer's Body (2009) M.E. Russell While "Jennifer's Body" doesn't always connect -- particularly when it tries to build horror-movie tension -- it's still an obvious labor of movie-geek love.

      Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It (2014) Jamie S. Rich It's pretty outrageous, though not my cup of tea. If you've liked the Trailer Park Boys in the past, though, Don't Legalize It doesn't really mess with the formula.

      Black Panther (2018) Eder Campuzano "Black Panther" delivers on most every level.
      Posted Feb 16, 2018
      Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Eder Campuzano It's a solid "Spider-Man" adventure. And nearly every scene in "Homecoming" is filled with bits that rewards fans who play close attention to the details.
      Posted Jun 29, 2017
      The Wizard of Lies (2017) Kristi Turnquist The Wizard of Lies spends much of its overlong two hours and 15 minutes running time repeating how Madoff's crimes victimized members of his family.
      Posted May 15, 2017
      The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (2017) Kristi Turnquist It's a shame The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks wasn't adapted as a miniseries. The amazing true story deserves an adaptation that does justice both to Henrietta Lacks, and to Skloot's achievement.

      The Secrets (2007) Douglas Perry Even with rote characterizations and an overheated lesbian subplot, this religion-steeped Israeli tale is entertaining, eye-opening, even cautiously sexy.

      Killing Reagan (2016) Kristi Turnquist Killing Reagan, which airs on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday, Oct. 16, feels rushed and incomplete, compressing this historic episode into a flat pancake of pointlessness.

      Purple Rain (1984) Ted Mahar The music is lively, loud, often powerful, sometimes raunchy, yet full of unexpected subtleties and nuances. The staging is frenetic but as perfect as the machines of the art can produce. This is first class music video.
      Posted Apr 21, 2016
      Confirmation (2016) Kristi Turnquist What keeps Confirmation watchable are vivid performances by a terrific cast. Washington - freed from the overacting mandate that seems part of the Scandal cast playbook - is subtle and moving as Hill.

      Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Eder Campuzano The director has a knack for constructing cool moments, but consistently fails to tie them together cohesively. He has neat ideas, but has trouble executing them.

      Censored Voices (2015) Marc Mohan "Censored Voices" demonstrates that no matter how existential the threat, or how just the cause, war inevitably leaves scars on the victors as well as the vanquished.

      Boy and the World (2013) Marc Mohan Unfortunately, the simplistic moral message of the movie and its insistence on remaining nonverbal make "Boy and the World" feel like something that would have been more tolerable as a 15-minute short than as an 80-minute feature.

      Joy (2015) Marc Mohan An inspirational, and mostly entertaining, saga, "Joy" is a Horatio Alger story for the 21st century - but who reads those anymore?

      The Hateful Eight (2015) Jeff Baker It just doesn't work. The pacing is off, there's no tension, the connections don't stick, all that talk leads to a lot of bloody action but no payoffs since the talk meant nothing and the characters that were saying it weren't memorable.

      Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) Jeff Baker The documentary is really just an extension of the book, with clips from the movies and commentary by the directors. That's more than enough, although I would have liked a little more on Truffaut's life and career.

      In the Heart of the Sea (2015) Jeff Baker There's all sorts of splashing and sloshing and spearing and shouting of ultra-polite commands -- everyone, no matter how much they hate each other, unfailingly uses the honorific "Mister" -- but nothing clicks.

      Theeb (2014) Marc Mohan The simplicity of its narrative and the stark beauty of its landscape make "Theeb" something close to a Mideastern Western. You'd just have to trade the dromedaries for palominos and the desert tunics for ponchos.
