4/5 Gloria Bell (2018) Pete Hammond In Sebastian Lelio's own english language remake of his 2013 Chilean hit, Gloria, Julianne Moore shines and makes this story definitely worth revisiting. EDIT

Captain Marvel (2019) Pete Hammond I's fun for fans, a place-setter for Endgame, and if you don't care about seeing Marvel raise the bar past Black Panther, you will get your money's worth. EDIT

3.5/5 Greta (2018) Pete Hammond It's Isabelle Huppert vs Chloe Grace Moretz in this nifty suspense thriller and Huppert in the title role steals it with a performance you have to see. EDIT

4/5 Fighting With My Family (2019) Pete Hammond The Rock uncovers a heartfelt, offbeat, and crowd pleasing story of the rise of WWE's wrestling superstar Paige. It's a winner. EDIT

3/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Pete Hammond I have seen a lot of movies in this genre that failed to engage on any level other than CGI, but James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez find the emotional center of Alita and make this a fun ride all the way. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2019
2.5/5 Cold Pursuit (2019) Pete Hammond Liam Neeson revenge action flick gets a pass only because it doesn't take itself seriously and might finally represent the end of these Neeson movies. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2019

Posted Feb 9, 2019
2/5 Glass (2019) Pete Hammond M. Night Shyamalan's forced "trilogy" doesn't prove unbreakable and ends not a moment too soon with a weak third entry called 'Glass' , but despite a game cast you can see right through it. EDIT
Posted Jan 18, 2019
3/5 A Dog's Way Home (2019) Pete Hammond The dog star who plays Bella is irresistible , a good thing since the script she's been handed isn't worthy of her canine charm. Kids ought to like it though. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2019
3/5 The Upside (2018) Pete Hammond Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston make an engaging english language remake of The Intouchables about as good as you can expect, even if there is no other real reason for it. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2019
3/5 Welcome to Marwen (2018) Pete Hammond Robert Zemeckis' odd duck of a movie, a true story by the way, is tonally challenged but weirdly affecting in some ways. Not for everyone but those who surrender to it will find some reward. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2018
4/5 Vice (2018) Pete Hammond Christian Bale brilliantly channels Dick Cheney in Adam McKay's scathing political satire. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
4/5 Roma (2018) Pete Hammond Alfonso Cuaron's heartfelt ode to the Mexico City of his childhood and the women who influenced him is unlike any other movie you will see this year. That's a good thing. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
4/5 If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Pete Hammond Barry Jenkins' follow-up to his Oscar winning Moonlight is an artful and moving adaptation of a searing James Baldwin novel that mixes a love story with social issues. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
5/5 Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Pete Hammond Emily Blunt is more than practically perfect in every way - and so is this movie where Mary Poppins returns just when we need her the most. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
4/5 Bumblebee (2018) Pete Hammond Shock of all shocks this is a Transformers movie that is actually quite terrific . Hailee Steinfeld and a lovable piece of metal are a big part of the reason. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
3/5 Aquaman (2018) Pete Hammond Big in every way , but fortunately not ALL wet thanks to a lively Jason Momoa and some terrific underwater visual effects. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
4.5/5 The Mule (2018) Pete Hammond Clint Eastwood is back at the top of his form both as actor and director in this terrific story of a 90 year old drug mule for the Mexican cartel inspired by real life. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2018
4/5 The Favourite (2018) Pete Hammond Deliciously funny . It is 'All About Eve' in the 18th Century in the court of Queen Anne. Performances could not be better. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
3/5 Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Pete Hammond Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan take on iconic roles and fiercely bring the #MeToo movement to the 16th century. Well, sort of. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
3/5 Dumplin' (2018) Pete Hammond It is virtually a shrine to Dolly Parton , but what's so bad about that? Sweet and funny, with a terrific Jennifer Aniston and Danielle MacDonald. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
4.5/5 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Pete Hammond Who knew there was this much life left in Spidey. The first big animated spinoff is perfection. Dazzling and fun all the way. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
3/5 Mortal Engines (2018) Pete Hammond This one is all over the place but kinda fun in an old Saturday matinee way. The first ten minutes are worth the price of admission and visually it's stunning, even if the story isn't. Mad Max has nothing to worry about but it has its moments. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
2/5 Robin Hood (2018) Pete Hammond Are you sure Guy Ritchie didn't direct this??? The attempt to make a faster and furiouser Robin Hood ain't all that , although it IS better than King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword but that is not saying a whole lot. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2018
3/5 Creed II (2018) Pete Hammond More like a sequel to Rocky IV than to the superior Creed, but Stallone (who also co-wrote the script) and Michael B. Jordan know exactly how to deliver the goods so the audience will be happy with this. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2018
4/5 Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Pete Hammond A spirited and funny sequel to Wreck-It-Ralph . Lots of good gags involving the internet and one terrific sequence where Disney spoofs their own beloved princesses is worth the price of admission alone. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2018
4/5 At Eternity's Gate (2018) Pete Hammond Director Julian Schnabel and Willem DaFoe deliver a stunning portrait of Vincent Van Gogh as we have never quite seen him depicted in movies before. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2018
2.5/5 Instant Family (2018) Pete Hammond The Foster Care messaging threatens to turn this affable family comedy into an infommerial at times ,but some genuine laughs, Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne, and a warm heart prevail. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2018
3.5/5 Widows (2018) Pete Hammond Viola Davis leads a superb ensemble of women in a heist film with a social twist. Steve Mc Queen goes genre but keeps it very real for these times. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2018
5/5 Green Book (2018) Pete Hammond A must see movie in every way. Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali take a road trip to the 1962 deep south that could very well end at the Oscars. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2018
2.5/5 The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Pete Hammond It is no threat to the original Swedish trilogy , or even to David Fincher's take, but this souped up , action-filled sequel might be enough to satisfy genre fans with a still-intriguing heroine in this #MeToo age. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2018
4/5 The Front Runner (2018) Pete Hammond Even about a presidential campaign scandal of 30 years ago, The Front Runner could not be more pertinent or timely to the politics of today and the moment when it all changed. Hugh Jackman is superb. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2018
4/5 A Private War (2018) Pete Hammond In the Trump era of fake news and journalist bashing , the timing could not be more urgent for this powerful true story of a courageous reporter on the front lines of the truth. EDIT

Posted Oct 31, 2018
3/5 Suspiria (2018) Pete Hammond Luca Guadagnino has created a visually arresting , if overlong, remake of the 1977 cult horror classic. It's worth seeing for those without weak stomachs, if only to once again experience the wonders of Tilda Swinton. EDIT
Posted Oct 31, 2018
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Pete Hammond [It] doesn't feel like a con job; rather, it's a genuine attempt to bring Queen and the legacy of Freddie Mercury to life on the big screen for the one thing that reigned supreme in their dynasty: the music. And what music it is. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2018
5/5 What They Had (2018) Pete Hammond Superb acting from a great ensemble including the role of his career for Robert Forster in a moving film where if you don't shed a tear you are probably dead inside. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2018
5/5 Mid90s (2018) Pete Hammond Jonah Hill makes a sensational writing/directing debut in a coming of age story quite unlike any other in recent times. Sunny Suljic is a kid you will remember. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2018
5/5 Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Pete Hammond Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant give Oscar worthy performances in this beautifully realized true story about author Lee Israel who forged celebrity letters and lived to write about it. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2018
3.5/5 Halloween (2018) Pete Hammond Forget all the ones that came in between the John Carpenter 1978 original and this one , a perfect sequel as Jamie Lee Curtis battles Michael Myers (again). EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2018
The Hate U Give (2018) Pete Hammond Hopefully this is a movie that will make a difference and cut through the noise. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2018
3/5 Beautiful Boy (2018) Pete Hammond Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet are superb in powerful family drama about drug addiction. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
3.5/5 Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Pete Hammond Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo , & Chris Hemsworth lead a cool cast in this fun retro film noir wannabe that has a rhythm all its own. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
5/5 A Star Is Born (2018) Pete Hammond It may be a fourth version of this time honored showbiz saga but Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga make 'A Star Is Born' all their own- and that's a very good thing. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2018
4/5 First Man (2018) Pete Hammond Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling reteam after 'La La Land' and create a very different but equally thrilling work in this highly impressive story of Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 moon shot. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2018
5/5 Private Life (2018) Pete Hammond Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn are funny and heartbreaking in Netflix's best movie yet. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2018
2.5/5 Venom (2018) Pete Hammond Tom Hardy tries his best to channel his inner alien but Venom is less than marvelous as a comic book movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2018
