Rating Title/Year Author
4.5/5 Palm Springs (1936) Perri Nemiroff It's highly entertaining, it is an often hilarious comedy, and it's also got real purpose and heart at its core. EDIT

4.5/5 Minari (2020) Perri Nemiroff An incredibly full, moving piece that works so well on so many levels. The humor, the heart, the stakes are high throughout, and there's a real delicacy to the way everything is captured to ensure a deep level of investment. EDIT

4.5/5 Uncut Gems (2019) Perri Nemiroff This felt like a one-of-a-kind experience thanks to the Safdie brothers' style. EDIT

4/5 Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Perri Nemiroff I really enjoyed this return to the franchise, I really dug the characters, and I do think Tim Miller had the right eye for this one. EDIT

4/5 Downton Abbey (2019) Perri Nemiroff It's just such a breezy watch. EDIT

3.5/5 Joker (2019) Perri Nemiroff There is a lot of exceptional work on display here, but I can't shake the fact that I felt kind of empty at the end of it. EDIT

4.5/5 The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Perri Nemiroff This movie is one heaping dose of kindness and support. EDIT

4/5 Ready or Not (2019) Perri Nemiroff Who knew a big screen version of "hide and seek" could be such a blast? Ready or Not is an extremely well crafted thrill with a clever mythology, a slew of colorful characters and a stand-out lead performance from Samara Weaving. EDIT

7.5/10 Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Perri Nemiroff The complete package isn't a home run, but it's still loaded with unforgettable moments showcasing the chemistry between DiCaprio, Pitt and other ensemble standouts - particularly Julia Butters, Margaret Qualley and Austin Butler. EDIT

6/10 Stuber (2019) Perri Nemiroff A mixed bag that teeters positive, in large part thanks to Nanjiani and Bautista's charm and chemistry, but this one's getting filed away as "solid at-home lazy day viewing." EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
4/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Perri Nemiroff Successfully embraces the weight of the events of Endgame but still turns on the charm as a coming-of-age adventure. Jon Watts is juggling a lot and manages to do so while giving the film a refreshing flavor and teeing up promising things for the future. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
4/5 Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Perri Nemiroff The scares are there but Annabelle Comes Home also has a playful haunted house vibe that makes it stand out from the rest of the Conjuring franchise. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
4.5/5 Wild Rose (2018) Perri Nemiroff Wild Rose features one of the best lead performances of the year, Jessie Buckley as Rose-Lynn. This one is absolutely brimming with energy and heart, and rocks one particularly unforgettable original song that better get some love this awards season. EDIT

3.5/5 I Am Mother (2019) Perri Nemiroff It had me hooked start-to-finished, though I wish I had something a bit more concrete to walk away with...still, a very impressive feature debut... EDIT
Posted Jun 7, 2019
4/5 Always Be My Maybe (2019) Perri Nemiroff This is a high-quality crowd-pleasure that delivers on laughs, joy and cultural encouragement... EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
3.5/5 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Perri Nemiroff It's exactly what I needed at this time of the year...for the most part, I was along for the ride, and fearful for these characters. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
4/5 The Perfection (2018) Perri Nemiroff Bold, stylish storytelling that takes big chances and rocks two extremely strong lead performances from Logan Browning and Allison Williams. Good luck shaking off the imagery in this one! EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
2.5/5 Rim of the World (2019) Perri Nemiroff For those with a soft spot for coming-of-age adventures, Rim of the World is just passable, but it's riddled with logic leaps, tonal inconsistencies and out of touch humor. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
Avengers: Endgame (2019) Perri Nemiroff ...A wonderful, rousing payoff in the context of the big battle and as wildly inspiring imagery. EDIT
Posted Apr 26, 2019
4/5 Ms. White Light (2019) Perri Nemiroff Ms. White Light is a uniquely rich story about the challenge of stepping beyond your comfort zone - both personally and professionally - and it also serves as a rather cathartic exploration of mortality. Roberta Colindrez is remarkable. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2019
Creep 2 (2017) Perri Nemiroff They took some interesting turns in Creep 2 and those turns really make the sequel a fresh installment. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2019
3.5/5 Yes, God, Yes (2017) Perri Nemiroff A charming and highly engrossing feature debut from Karen Maine with a standout nuanced performance from Natalia Dyer. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2019
4/5 Greta (2018) Perri Nemiroff I was completely swept up in this truly wild ride, and almost had a gleeful response to the whole thing. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2019
2/5 Glass (2019) Perri Nemiroff With a movie jumping from character to character so often, it just didn't have flow or pacing or tone. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2019
4.5/5 Free Solo (2018) Perri Nemiroff I just got so swept up in it all. I love hearing what others are so passionate about. Completely taken by Alex's story. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2019
3.5/5 Escape Room (2019) Perri Nemiroff A series of suspenseful and creative set pieces that offer a Final Destination-like thrill, and tease some serious franchise potential. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2019
7/10 Hell Fest (2018) Perri Nemiroff If you've got a friend who isn't into horror movies, this isn't the one that'll change his or her mind, but for someone who's undeniably drawn to the campy slasher sub-genre, this fairly straightforward thrill ride is a good time. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2018
2.5/5 The House With a Clock in Its Walls (2018) Perri Nemiroff Jack Black and Cate Blanchett are a delightful duo, but a sense of wonder never takes hold here. It's a movie about magic that's disappointingly dull. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2018
6/10 The Nun (2018) Perri Nemiroff It successfully gives you the feeling that you're being ushered through an especially well designed haunted house - but by forgettable characters. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
8/10 Searching (2018) Perri Nemiroff A smart, riveting and powerful thriller that suggests the screen life format can add a lot to traditional cinematic storytelling. EDIT
Posted Aug 28, 2018
1/5 The Happytime Murders (2018) Perri Nemiroff It's off-putting, tone deaf, and has zero clever concepts or jokes beyond the trailer. A colossal disappointment and missed opportunity. EDIT
Posted Aug 22, 2018
7/10 The Meg (2018) Perri Nemiroff The Meg ticks the necessary wild summertime thrill boxes and also throws in the added bonus of incorporating just enough of a dark, forbidding and serious vibe to up the intensity and make the experience a truly immersive ride. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2018
6/10 The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) Perri Nemiroff When it works, it's buzzing with laughs, energy and suspense, but what could have been a great, swift 90-minute zany thrill, winds up becoming a bloated two-hour experience that eventually loses some steam. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2018
2.5/5 Christopher Robin (2018) Perri Nemiroff The computer animation is phenomenal and there are certain moments when it is very evident that this idea had potential but ultimately the lack of depth, the dreariness and the snail-like pace stripped the experience of a lot of its magic. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2018
4.5/5 Eighth Grade (2018) Perri Nemiroff Transports you to a very specific and tumultuous time - moving from middle to high school. Burnham makes you engage specifically with Kayla, but also hits all the right notes when sparking nostalgia and challenging the viewer to do some self-reflection. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2018
3.5/5 Hereditary (2018) Perri Nemiroff A rich, original horror story and astounding performances result in two hours of edge-of-your-seat terror, but the final moments leave the film just short of modern masterpiece territory. EDIT
Posted Jun 10, 2018
4/5 Hotel Artemis (2018) Perri Nemiroff The narrative doesn't come together especially well, but the concept and ensemble are so wildly appealing, I'm dying to spend even more time at the Artemis. EDIT
Posted Jun 6, 2018
4/5 Upgrade (2018) Perri Nemiroff Leigh Whannell absolutely crushes his second directorial effort with an original, exciting story that shows off A+ world-building and a fantastic performance from Logan Marshall-Green. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2018
4/5 Adrift (2018) Perri Nemiroff An enthralling ride with an exceptional performance from Shailene Woodley at the center of it that's beautifully backed by the dueling ideas of the beauty of nature and also the horrors of it. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2018
5/10 Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Perri Nemiroff There's some fun to be had, but it's lacking in stakes, energy and depth. Alden Ehrenreich delivers a solid performance, but the movie overall doesn't add all that much to the character. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2018
2/5 Legion (2010) Perri Nemiroff Swallowed up by its effort to be a film of multiple genres. The only genre it earns a place in is comedy; it achieves an amount of unwarranted laughs of biblical proportions. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2010
3/5 The Book of Eli (2010) Perri Nemiroff Having to put your brain on cruise control to appreciate a movie is never a good sign, but in this film's case, letting yourself go for two hours is well worth it. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2010
3.5/5 Youth in Revolt (2009) Perri Nemiroff The movie doesn't pack the same punch as the book, but still manages to create a wildly entertaining blend of teen love, awkwardness and vulgarity. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2010
3/5 Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009) Perri Nemiroff Tons of fun, but far too childish to be taken seriously. EDIT
