      The Boogeyman (2023) Barry Hertz Ultimately, the scariest thing about The Boogeyman is that its mere existence implies that producers are hard at work trawling the depths of King’s archives for even more obscure, even flimsier material to adapt.

      Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023) Radheyan Simonpillai Across the Spider-Verse keeps up the momentum, goes further with the artistry and is perhaps even more rewarding. Like any great sequel free from the legwork of setting things up, this one is more contemplative and soulful.

      Killers of the Flower Moon (2023) Radheyan Simonpillai A soulful and unsettling movie that is self-aware about how storytellers twist and manipulate truth.

      Down for Life (2009) Brad Wheeler Disturbingly frank, the film assaults its viewers, but in a very effective way.

      Kandahar (2023) Barry Hertz By law, every summer movie season should include at least one Gerard Butler film.
      Posted May 24, 2023
      You Hurt My Feelings (2023) Barry Hertz A much-needed reminder of the almost forgotten pleasures of sitting inside a movie theatre, watching smart, funny people work through thorny, relatable problems on a distinctly human scale.

      The Little Mermaid (2023) Barry Hertz A thoroughly pointless cash grab of a thing, this new Little Mermaid is one of the most uninspired films to slither out of Disney since the company started raiding its own vault...

      Master Gardener (2022) Barry Hertz A complex and layered thing that is sturdily resistant to quick, dirty, in-and-out discourse.
      Posted May 18, 2023
      Fast X (2023) Barry Hertz An F&F movie that is both a one-upped continuation of the franchise and a deeply affectionate, powerfully weird tribute to the series itself.
      Posted May 17, 2023
      Twice Colonized (2023) Barry Hertz A film that is empowering, educating and insightful, all at once.

      The Mask (1961) Brad Wheeler The Mask was low-budget in 1961, and that its kitschy appeal will be limited to genre fetishists and popcorn-chomping ironists in 2015.

      Book Club: The Next Chapter (2023) Amil Niazi The best thing about Book Club: The Next Chapter is just seeing these remarkable actresses do what they do best. I hope Hollywood can make better use of them in the future.

      The Maiden (2022) Barry Hertz An intensely atmospheric meditation on friendship, grief and the pains and wonders of being an adolescent outsider, The Maiden is a haunting work that announces the arrival of a startling new talent.

      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) Barry Hertz I am Groot … ly disappointed.
      Posted May 04, 2023
      Carmen (2022) Barry Hertz An exercise in higher-than-high ambition whose only outcome can be of the crash and burn variety.
      Posted May 01, 2023
      Big George Foreman: The Miraculous Story of the Once and Future Heavyweight Champion of the World (2023) Radheyan Simonpillai A strong filmmaking team could have made a meal of this story. Unfortunately, Tillman Jr. settles for a lousy boxing movie in service of a sermon.

      Sisu (2022) Barry Hertz If watching mass-murdering maniacs get absolutely destroyed on-screen is your thing – and it very much is mine – then Sisu is a perfectly depraved night out.
      Posted Apr 27, 2023
      Polite Society (2023) Aparita Bhandari Polite Society is a welcome addition to the canon of works featuring the lives of contemporary South Asian diaspora, with its distinct British humour.

      Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. (2023) Marsha Lederman Director and screenwriter Kelly Fremon Craig does not mess this up. She has created a film that is true to the book’s heart, but is also its own thing. And it is a (mostly) wonderful thing.

      Chevalier (2022) Barry Hertz For myriad reasons Chevalier’s energy and imagination never feel adequately reflected in this cinematic retelling.
      Posted Apr 17, 2023
      Beau Is Afraid (2023) Barry Hertz Beau Is Afraid is not a movie for everyone – actually, it is a movie for very, very, very few. But I just happen to be part of that teeny tiny target audience. And for me, Beau Is Afraid kills.

      Renfield (2023) Barry Hertz Feel free to expose Renfield to direct sunlight, and watch it burn.
      Posted Apr 13, 2023
      Mafia Mamma (2023) Anne T. Donahue Despite its best intentions at subverting the classic mob genre, the new comedy Mafia Mamma sadly misses the mark and delivers a story rich in tropes but lacking in substance.

      How to Blow Up a Pipeline (2022) Barry Hertz Incendiary and furious, confident and courageous, the new thriller How to Blow Up a Pipeline boasts not only the best title of the year so far but also the best score, cast and itchy, charged, electric directorial vision...
      Posted Apr 10, 2023
      Air (2023) Barry Hertz A well-oiled machine of a movie, as slick and convincing as its obvious show-me-the-money inspiration. It had me at, “Just Do It.”

      The Super Mario Bros. Movie (2023) Radheyan Simonpillai The internet was right. Chris Pratt is all wrong as the title character in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

      Simulant (2023) Barry Hertz A sometimes confused and always lazy pastiche of warmed-over ideas about humanity, technology and What It All Really Means. More artificial, less intelligence.

      Murder Mystery 2 (2023) Barry Hertz If you squint especially hard and hold your breath till you pass out, the sequel almost resembles an attempt by Sandler to recreate Glass Onion.

      A Thousand and One (2023) Sarah-Tai Black Wisely locating her characters at the intersection of race, class and gender, Rockwell takes stock of their losses and challenges, their joys and moments of respite, all within a city that is indifferent to them.
      Posted Mar 29, 2023
      Tetris (2023) Barry Hertz A needlessly complicated and ultimately rather boring epic whose narrative blocks don’t so much stack on top of each other neatly as they do crush, grind and crack until the whole structure topples.

      Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) Radheyan Simonpillai A giddy, comical and inviting brand expansion that gives its fans – who often suppress their inner wizards in public – good reason to wear their nerdy affections with pride.

      John Wick: Chapter 4 (2023) Barry Hertz Far too often, especially during the film’s first 90 minutes, the action pauses for stiff, semi-serious scenes unpacking the underworld arcana that the first three films built up with increasing ponderousness.
      Posted Mar 21, 2023
      You Can Live Forever (2022) Barry Hertz For all its aches and pains, the heart of You Can Live Forever doesn’t so much beat as skip, haltingly and disconcertingly, as it tries to keep its own lifeblood pumping.
      Posted Mar 20, 2023
      Shazam! Fury of the Gods (2023) Barry Hertz The experience of watching this new Shazam! is akin to watching an exceptionally wealthy but ultimately sweet and innocent child smash their toys together for 130 minutes.

      Until Branches Bend (2022) Anne T. Donahue As deeply moving as it is upsetting, Until Branches Bend is an affecting drama that begs audiences to question their own social complacency.

      Riceboy Sleeps (2022) Barry Hertz This is a tender, ambitious, meticulous and deeply empathetic work.

      Tenzin (2023) Barry Hertz Toronto’s Little Tibet deserves its big moment in the spotlight. But Tenzin’s glow is ultimately too dim, flickering on and off until it simply fades.

      Brother (2022) Barry Hertz The spirit of what Scarborough represents – for Chariandy, and for Clement – is undoubtedly present in every lovingly composed frame of Brother.
      Posted Mar 14, 2023
      Scream VI (2023) Barry Hertz Scream VI doesn’t reinvent the blade – though for a hot minute it half-convinces itself that it has done just that – but it does deliver the goods, quickly and efficiently and oh-so-sharply.

      Champions (2023) Radheyan Simonpillai A paternalistic and patronizing movie...

      Inside (2023) Barry Hertz Dafoe is captivating as always, but not even his slinking, slippery presence can save the film from turning into a rather torturous endurance test.
      Posted Mar 06, 2023
      I Like Movies (2022) Amil Niazi Levack has done a remarkable job with her feature-film debut, playing with tropes that have time-honoured traditions but are always in need of a refresh.

      Chris Rock: Selective Outrage (2023) Radheyan Simonpillai “Nobody is picking on this b****,” Rock said, as he continued to bully [Jada Pinkett-Smith] instead of [Will] Smith. He, too, is all about the selective outrage.
      Posted Mar 05, 2023
      Creed III (2023) Barry Hertz Creed III tells a story that takes the best parts of the Rocky franchise and blends them into a sort of rock-’em-sock-’em comfort food, so fighting-form slick it slides down your gullet like a raw-egg smoothie.

      The Quiet Girl (2022) Anne T. Donahue Through heart-wrenching, nuanced and arresting performances by Clinch, Crowley and Bennett, The Quiet Girl technically lives up to its name, but speaks volumes about the transformative power of what it means to be loved.

      Unseen Skies (2021) Chris Knight Will leave you with a great many questions and concerns about the place of surveillance in our lives, the ways that open-source artificial intelligence is getting in on the act, and what it might mean to the future of privacy and civil liberties.

      We Have a Ghost (2023) Barry Hertz We Have a Ghost is a desperate mix of feel-good sentimentality, watered-down surreality, and comedy as transparent in its hackiness as the film’s title spook.

      Emily (2022) Kate Taylor Purists are not going to be pleased... But for the rest of us this fantasy does offer the satisfaction of witnessing the short-lived triumph of a fascinating character.
