6.5/10 The Host (2020) Brittany Witherspoon Had Geraghty's script leaned more into this concept, there's no doubt in my mind that The Host could've been exceptional. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I was entertained regardless. EDIT

3/10 Dolittle (2020) Alan Ng Kids will enjoy the life lessons offered and Dr. Dolittle becomes somewhat of a Wizard of Oz to his friends. But it's insulting to think that children will see a movie solely because you have animals that talk and act silly. EDIT

9/10 To Your Last Death (2019) Enrique Acosta Despite its obvious flaws, To Your Last Death, is one of the best action/horror films I've seen in a long time. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
7.5/10 Little Women (2019) Hanna B ...despite its many flaws, there is something about this remake that makes it undeniably grandiose. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
8/10 Angelfish (2019) Brian Shaer The perceptive and astute script, judicious direction, and affectless acting from a masterfully assembled cast, especially the two leads, make this simple story well worth your time. EDIT

5/10 Toxicity (2019) Alan Ng Toxicity has a good skeleton in a story and some exciting things to say about toxic relationships. It just falls short in the way its characters were created and developed through the writing process. EDIT

7.5/10 Arara (2019) Alan Ng [A] fascinating drama spotlighting an important issue. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2020
6/10 Kill Ben Lyk (2018) Alex Saveliev Kill Ben Lyk manages to be entertaining and inconsequential in equal measures. Give it a shot. EDIT

7/10 Ellipse (2018) Dylan Andresen If you love science fiction and/or dogs, then this is most certainly a movie for you. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2020
8/10 () Alan Ng Film School Africa is an inspiring film about the vision and passion of Katie Taylor and Marie Midcalf to bring the art of filmmaking to young people, who never thought this would ever be an option for them in life. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2020
8/10 The Garden Left Behind (2019) Anthony Ray Bench The Garden Left Behind is an amazing drama filled to the brim with realistic and heavy performances that will absolutely leave a lasting impression and subject matter that should more commonly be explored and celebrated. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2020
7/10 () Neil Weakley Android Re-enactment maximizes every bit of its' resources to entertain with a solid cast and the use of practical effects that impress for such a shoestring budget. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
8/10 () Alex Saveliev It marks the arrival of a talent to watch. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
5/10 The End of Quantum Reality (2020) Bobby LePire While I appreciated its style and the lively nature of the interviewees, that is all the movie has to offer. Its subject matter is indescribable and bewildering. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
4/10 Like a Boss (2020) Alan Ng This is about as lifeless and unfunny as it gets. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
7/10 Empty Metal (2018) Laura Jacobs Khalil and Sweitzer's film is unique, but it remains unclear if it has the power and resonance behind it to take their points outside of the arthouse audience. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
7/10 Underwater (2020) Alex Saveliev The story may be as shallow as its setting is deep, but as far as (very expensive) B-flicks go, you could do a lot worse. Dive in. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
8/10 () Bradley Gibson Cruel Hearts plops down beside you and tells you it's boffing your wife, then makes a compelling argument for you to stick around for an insane, but exceptionally entertaining show. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
8/10 The Black String (2019) Brittany Witherspoon Elevating this script from a derivative and simple one is no easy task, but Muniz does it effortlessly. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
7/10 Weathering With You (2019) Alex Saveliev It may move at a leisurely, awkward pace that threatens to come to a dead halt at points. Yet when it takes flight, it soars. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
7/10 Reality Queen! (2019) Bobby LePire Reality Queen! proves to be a charming affair. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
7/10 Speed of Life (2019) Bradley Gibson Speed of Life reminds us that the art of our idols, the fire, and the passion, survive the artist and that their immortality is you keeping that fire burning. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
6/10 The Sonata (2018) Nick Rocco Scalia Even if The Sonata ultimately turns out to be something of a letdown, however, it may still be worth seeing for Rutger Hauer's involvement alone. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
5/10 Inherit the Viper (2019) Alan Ng Inherit The Viper had the potential to be an exciting thriller with dramatic family elements. Instead, its characters fall flat as if the actors were not allowed or unwilling to flesh out their characters more. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
7/10 () Alan Ng With a little patience, you're going to have a lot of fun with The Trouble. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
6.5/10 () Alan Ng This is must-see mafia viewing. I would have said this is the best gangster film to come in a long time, but The Irishman beat Mafia Inc. to the punch. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
7/10 () Hunter Lanier As the movie frequently points out, the pagan history is largely told by their Christian dominators, so-as with all of history-it's hard to separate the truth from the truth told by the ones left to tell it. Add the asterisk and call it a day, I guess. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
8/10 Inner Ghosts (2018) Brian Shaer Yet, even with that stupendous finale, impressive performances from a talented cast, and an effectively minimalist score, Inner Ghosts cannot overcome a sluggish pace that haunts the majority of its running time. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
5.5/10 () Brittany Witherspoon Unfortunately, it never cuts deep enough to leave a lasting impression. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
2/10 () Dylan Andresen The dialogue is worse than bad. It is completely boring and forgettable like this movie is as soon as you finish it. Assuming you have the sheer force of will to do so. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
1/10 Once Upon a Time in Deadwood (2019) Brian Shaer McCabe and Mrs. Miller this is not. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
8/10 The Woman Who Loves Giraffes (2018) Bobby LePire While director Alison Reid tries to be a bit more engaging than a simple talking-head documentary, with varying success, the movie has earnestness and heart. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
8/10 () Alan Ng I may not agree with many of the same stuff Robert Fisk believes, but I do admire and respect how far he's willing to go for the truth. After seeing This is Not a Movie, I hope you will too. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
8/10 Blood Bags (2018) Bobby LePire Emiliano Ranzani's first feature-length film is not flawless, but he proves a talent to watch. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
7/10 A Serial Killer's Guide to Life (2019) Lorry Kikta A bone-dry dark horror-comedy, A Serial Killer's Guide to Life, is I Heart Huckabees meets American Psycho by way of Thelma and Louise. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
9/10 Eco-Terrorist: The Battle for Our Planet (2019) Brittany Witherspoon Equal parts educational and entertaining, Eco-Terrorist is a must-watch for documentary fans. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
7/10 Hell on the Border (2019) Alan Ng Inspired by Reeves, but clearly not attempting to recount the real story in any way. It's merely a fun western and should be seen as that. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
9/10 () Andrew Stover Healing From Hate... lets us all cognize the hate that ceases to vanquish... but still allowing us to appreciate the work of those who are working endlessly to bring the ones back from this life of rage and vicious chauvinism. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
7/10 Three Christs (2017) Lorry Kikta It has some of the most solid performances from some of the best character actors in the world. So please do yourself a favor and check it out. Do it for Jesus, whether it be one of them, or all three. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
8.5/10 An Almost Ordinary Summer (2019) Alan Ng You'll laugh and love, while at the same time want to follow the exploits of these two families over another season. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
8/10 Instinct (2019) Alan Ng In a #MeToo climate, it chooses to stand by its controversial story rather than play is safe. This is not a film that lazily says, "men bad/women good," which is easy to do in fiction. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
8/10 () Alan Ng Zana is a touching, anxiety-inducing story about the effects of unexposed trauma...with horror elements added for effect. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
6/10 () Amos Efrat While I may feel the film is ultimately weighed down by this objective, to its credit, the twist finale totally sticks the landing and reveals that for all its desire to recreate, its strongest quality was its own finely crafted plotting. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
8/10 Beanpole (2019) Lorry Kikta It's not for the faint of heart, and it may leave you feeling (possibly a lot) sadder than you were before going in, but it'll make you feel grateful for the fact that WWII is over and that WWIII hasn't started...yet. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
4/10 A Rough Draft (2018) Alex Saveliev A Rough Draft tests our patience (and intelligence) at every twist and turn. It indeed feels like a very rough draft, a blueprint for a film, a series of poorly-visualized but cool-sounding concepts strung together rather shoddily. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
8/10 () Alan Ng Tammy Minoff is perfect and charismatic on-screen as Rosemary and navigates the world of indie romances brilliantly as its writer, director, and star. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
3/10 The Grudge (2020) Alex Saveliev The Grudge 2020's worst offense is that it utterly fails to find its own voice, its own take on the material EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2020
7/10 The Europeans (1979) Hunter Lanier There is a certain allure to a movie that plays hard to get. The Europeans expects you to meet it halfway. When you do, you're rewarded with a story that's rich with complicated emotions, despite its self-confident exterior. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
8/10 Spiral Farm (2019) Paul Parcellin This isn't a takedown of communes or alternative lifestyles, but a character study of a handful of people who've gravitated toward that kind of living arrangement or were born into it. EDIT
Posted Dec 31, 2019
7/10 Running With the Devil (2019) Andrew Stover If you want to see a film about how the Columbian drug trade process works, then this movie is for you. If you like films like Sicario or Traffic, this may be right up your alley... EDIT
