8.5/10 () Chris Salce Harvey and Hannawin always keeps the film intense, suspenseful, and unpredictable. It is all-around a stellar film that will keep you at the edge of your seat. EDIT

8/10 Don't Be Nice (2019) Alan Ng If you ever want to slip into your local poetry slam, Don't Be Nice is the perfect primer for your experience. It will blow away your preconceptions and show you the art inside the artist. EDIT

5/10 The Great Alaskan Race (2019) Bobby LePire It is certainly not a bad movie, but it is not particularly memorable either. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2019
8/10 () Alex Saveliev Gibney spares no detail. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2019
9/10 Daniel Isn't Real (2019) Chuck Foster Robbins turns in a simply stellar performance as a timid young man becoming completely unhinged. Schwarzenegger perfectly plays off of him as the maniacal voice in his head... EDIT

6.5/10 The Riot Act (2018) Tiffany Tchobanian What The Riot Act lacks in gripping pace, it makes up for in stunning cinematography which beautifully captures the moody atmosphere of the era. EDIT

8/10 () Alan Ng A far as coming-of-age stories go, Once Upon a River is a very sweet story. There's not a lot of fluff, but there is a lot of heart in a story based on a novel and feels in a way like a novel. EDIT

6/10 Devil's Junction: Handy Dandy's Revenge (2019) Bobby LePire ...effects are subpar, even for low budget genre fare, most of the cast is middling to the point of forgetfulness, and the dialogue is pretty cheesy. But Moseley and Oberst Jr. are as game as ever, as is Danni Spring, who has moxie to spare. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2019
6/10 Miss Virginia (2019) Alex Saveliev As a heartfelt tribute to an important historical figure, it works just fine. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
7/10 Gemini Man (2019) Alan Ng Adding Ang Lee, Will Smith, and several million-dollar to production, Lee manages not to ruin the story with unnecessary Hollywood rigmarole. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
8/10 El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Bradley Gibson Gilligan has done his magic again... EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
7.5/10 Philophobia: or the Fear of Falling in Love (2019) Alan Ng The stories in the genre are often the same, but it's the events along the journey that differentiates one film from the other. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
8/10 Grâce à Dieu (2018) Alex Saveliev It may be a 'message movie'...but it's a muscular, endearing, highly intelligent one. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
3/10 Trick (2019) Alex Saveliev Hardcore gorehounds will be disappointed by the lukewarm scares. Fans of throwback films will groan at the lack of tongue-in-cheek references. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
10/10 Doubting Thomas (2018) Bobby LePire I won't spoil anything, but there's a speech in which Ron describes people's reactions to his existence that is one of the best written moments of any movie all year. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
9/10 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Alan Ng Silliness aside, Jojo Rabbit is about a ten-year-old boy who is forced to become an adult quickly. The moment he does, the film becomes a strong punch in the gut. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
7/10 Hard Paint (2018) Filipe Freitas ...a simmering, low-key approach delineated with a mix of tension and languidness that works incredibly well... EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
3/10 Unlikely (2019) Andrew Emerson Unlikely ultimately feels both superficial and intellectually dishonest. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
6/10 Debunkers, Inc. (2017) Matthew Passantino Silly and slight, Debunkers, Inc. isn't so much anything grand and memorable but a fine calling card for a filmmaker and his future. Sometimes, showing promise can be good enough going forward. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
8/10 First Love (2019) Alex Saveliev [It] will melt your brains, punch you in the gut and leave your hearts a-flutter. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
9/10 QT8: The First Eight (2019) Bradley Gibson [A] wonderfully exuberant and satisfying retrospective of the work of American auteur... EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
3/10 Mary (2019) Alex Saveliev Mary is an utterly dismal experience from start to finish, lacking any psychology or thrills. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
9/10 Parasite (2019) Alan Ng Parasite is a brilliant film and for a thriller, it's absolutely unpredictable... EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
8/10 Up There (2019) Alan Ng They succeeded in conveying that passion and producing a professional-looking film with great performances. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
8/10 Out of Omaha (2018) Andrew Emerson This documentary has the kind of nuance and intelligence that our public discourse could sorely use - and ultimately, it's everyone's loss that the film is getting next to no attention outside of Nebraska. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
6/10 First Round Down (2016) Alan Ng While the film has a lot going on, there's also a lot to like about it. As convoluted as the twisting plotlines are, it's easy to follow, and the action pushes us through the film from start to finish. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
9/10 Marriage Story (2019) Lorry Kikta It's almost impossible for me to convey how much this film touched my heart, being a child of divorce, and secondly, as being a rabid Baumbach fan. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
7/10 Blood on Her Name (2019) Alex Saveliev Blood on Her Name is a fine showcase for its star, and a sturdy debut from a director to watch. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
9/10 Incredible Violence (2018) Bobby LePire Incredible Violence hangs its hat on a framing device, if you will, that is ultimately pointless and offers nothing to the main story at hand. But, the film proves itself to be an intense watch, bolstered by a great cast and excellent direction. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
6/10 Hello, Privilege. It's Me, Chelsea (2019) Dante James Would I recommend this film? I'm going to reluctantly say, yes. The good thing about this special is, it's on Netflix, and it's only an hour. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
6/10 Don't Let Go (2019) Lorry Kikta Give it a spin, but just be warned, it's more of a Saturn than a Lamborghini. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
5/10 The Pretenders (2018) Alex Saveliev Quantity over quality seems to be Franco's motto. He's quite consistent in how inconsistent he is. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
10/10 Joker (2019) Chris Gore ...the most radical film to come from a major studio since Fight Club. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
6/10 The Parts You Lose (2019) Hunter Lanier It won't lay a finger on you or look you in the eyes for longer than you're comfortable with. All told, its existence is difficult to justify, but it's here, and it's not bad. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
4/10 Double Eagle Ranch (2018) Alan Ng If anything, Double Eagle Ranch suffers from being just a version or two away from a good, balanced story. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
5/10 Freedom (2019) Lorry Kikta Liberté is shocking, but it is staged as banally as possible. It is filmed as though someone was making a nature documentary, or in this case, a documentary against nature. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
9/10 Gags (2018) Bobby LePire Gags The Clown has a few issues, but it works where it counts. It is a scary, intense watch with an engaging premise. And it is all brought to life by an excellent cast. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
4/10 Zeroville (2019) Hunter Lanier Vikar is just a weird guy left out to dry on a plotline. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
3/10 Encounter (2018) Alex Saveliev With its slapdash editing, poor effects and a central creature that resembles a chopped-up Audrey II from The Little Shop of Horrors, Encounter sadly does little to improve Luke Hemsworth's filmography. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2019
5/10 Manifest Destiny Down: Spacetime (2019) Chris Salce Despite enjoying the way the film ended, I was still confused just as much as the characters were. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2019
Cold Sweat (2010) Film Threat Staff [It] succeeds via its technical smarts and by delivering a few unique and thrilling situations and leaves me wanting to go back and visit Bogliano's catalog to see if his other movies are as much fun as "Cold Sweat." EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2019
7/10 () Bobby LePire While the film is never all that scary, thanks to a high body count and tons of gore, it is continually entertaining. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
1/10 Bathroom Stalls & Parking Lots (2019) Enrique Acosta We desperately need a film to explore that world and make a serious comment on it. Bathroom Stalls & Parking Lots just isn't that film. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
1/10 Corporate Animals (2019) Enrique Acosta It is a fantastic idea that never gels into anything worth watching, and I suggest you miss it. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
9/10 The Irishman (2019) Lorry Kikta A work of art made by one of film's ultimate master-craftsmen. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
8.5/10 () Alan Ng Karimi's Hava, Maryam, Ayesha is recreating real life as it happens, and not some overly dramatic story. Real People. Real Stories. Real Life. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
4/10 () Bobby LePire This has nothing to do with Pudles's portrayal of the character. The actor brings the appropriate amount of dimness and energy to a crappy role. But the character does not work. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
6.5/10 How to Say Goodbye (2018) Alan Ng How To Say Goodbye is Frank Song's first outing as a writer/director/lead actor. He produced an excellent story with a good foundation creating four well-defined characters, all with distinct arcs... EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
6/10 Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Alex Saveliev This is a straight-up, no-holds-barred revenge flick starring a leathery Sylvester Stallone - albeit one that struggles to keep an already-thin story together. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
6/10 Nineteen Summers (2019) Alex Saveliev The tone and pace are, at times inconsistent, making for a somewhat-meandering flow... However, newcomer Emonjay Brown shines as DeAndre, by turns affectionate, resolute, angry at the system and himself. EDIT
