Rating Title/Year Author
4.5/5 Sound of Metal (2019) Perri Nemiroff Riz Ahmed delivers one of the most complex and moving on-screen transformations of the year. EDIT

3/5 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Perri Nemiroff The sequel takes a powerful core concept and digs into it from three primary perspectives. Two don't land, but Diana's journey winds up being the strongest of the bunch, giving Gal Gadot the chance to excel in her strongest emotional scene yet. EDIT

4/5 Soul (2020) Perri Nemiroff It doesn't coalesce quite as well as some other Pixar films, but Soul is still a stunning, highly imaginative and poignant piece that continues to prove Pixar is one of the boldest and most innovative animation studios out there. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
1.5/5 Superintelligence (2020) Perri Nemiroff Yet another bust from McCarthy and Falcone. McCarthy pops doing what she does best every now and then, but it's just not enough to support an unfunny AI romance that doesn't seem to understand how technology works. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2020
4/5 The Prom (2020) Perri Nemiroff A heaping dose of color, heart and joy featuring a whole batch of stellar performances - a best for James Corden and quite the feature debut for Jo Ellen Pellman. EDIT
Posted Dec 1, 2020
2.5/5 Run (2020) Matt Donato Kiera Allen is astounding but the entire production feels imbalanced and rushed, favoring the horror in moments versus overall narrative cohesion. EDIT
Posted Nov 25, 2020
4/5 Run (2020) Perri Nemiroff An extremely effective edge of your seat thrill with a wildly impressive feature debut performance from Kiera Allen. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2020
4/5 Happiest Season (2020) Perri Nemiroff It's film formula used in the best way. DuVall and Holland deliver the heart and laughs you'd hope to get from a holiday comedy, and they do it while saying something meaningful about one's relationship with their family and the pursuit of self-worth. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2020
1.5/5 Hillbilly Elegy (2020) Perri Nemiroff Blunt emotional manipulation with no valuable takeaway. Hillbilly Elegy is a structural mess with no nuance that reduces its main players to their most basic character descriptions and nothing more. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2020
2.5/5 The Craft: Legacy (2020) Matt Donato It's toothless, rushes towards its finale, feels underdeveloped, and lacks the magical coven engagement of its predecessor. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2020
2.5/5 Roald Dahl's The Witches (2020) Matt Donato Hathaway goes all-in, but the film often forgets there's an entire coven and larger cinematic world beyond the actress' wild-and-crazy performance. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2020
3.5/5 Freaky (2020) Perri Nemiroff Another clever concept for Christopher Landon to run with. While he does deliver a good time mashing up genres here, it does feel like Freaky missed some opportunities to dig deeper into the pillars of the slasher genre. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2020
2/5 Rebecca (2020) Perri Nemiroff Dreary and plain old boring. All early interest in the romance withers away as the characters become more and more distant while navigating the tiresome mystery. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2020
4/5 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Perri Nemiroff It's Sacha Baron-Cohen using his art and comedic sensibilities to spark change with some pretty extreme tactics, and I'm mighty impressed that his team pulled it all off as well as they did, while stitching those stunts together with a coherent narrative. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2020
4/5 Clouds (2020) Perri Nemiroff Clouds continues to prove that director Justin Baldoni has a real passion and knack for sharing challenging true stories while honoring the real people and inspiring others in the process. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2020
4/5 Enola Holmes (2020) Perri Nemiroff Just the burst of color and energy the Sherlock Holmes film universe needed. A delightful adventure with an infectious charm, energy and rip-roaring pace. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2020
2.5/5 Secret Society of Second Born Royals (2020) Perri Nemiroff Second Born Royals feels like a PG version of Kingsman: The Secret Service with humor and an aesthetic akin to Disney Channel features. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2020
3/5 Antebellum (2020) Perri Nemiroff Antebellum presents a powerful idea, but then just hands you a surface level presentation of it. While I'm very eager to see what Bush and Renz do next, it's unfortunate that Antebellum had so much potential but failed to add to the conversation. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2020
2.5/5 The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020) Perri Nemiroff Killer Queen isn't nearly as refined as the first film and goes a little too big in many respects, but McG still manages to deliver an entertaining thrill with a stellar ensemble giving every ounce of this mayhem 100%. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2020
4/5 Class Action Park (2020) Perri Nemiroff [Class Action Park] feels like a time capsule, and I'm glad we have that time capsule because Action Park isn't coming back, nor should it. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2020
4/5 Mulan (2020) Perri Nemiroff A stunning adaptation that benefits from Niki Caro's eye behind the lens and Yifei Liu's ability to embody a character who's often defined by her actions and how she's internalizing her experience. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2020
3/5 The One and Only Ivan (2020) Perri Nemiroff Its heart is very much in the right place and the movie does get its points across clear enough, but it does seem like there was more to mine, especially from Mack's portion of the story. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2020
3/5 Project Power (2020) Perri Nemiroff A Dominque Fishback showcase. She's the beating heart of a film that merely coasts on the entertainment value of its high concept. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2020
An American Pickle (2020) Perri Nemiroff A pretty enjoyable showcase for Rogen. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2020
3/5 The Rental (2020) Perri Nemiroff It is a solid watch. it plays with how crazy the idea of renting a home from a complete stranger is. It's got a great ensemble and it uses them well... but it does stop short of having something really groundbreaking to say. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2020
4.5/5 Relic (2020) Perri Nemiroff Relic is a pretty expertly crafted film and an excellent example of how genre storytelling can get at some very hard truths. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2020
The Old Guard (2020) Perri Nemiroff One of my favorite movies of the year so far. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2020
Hamilton (2020) Perri Nemiroff Hamilton met all of my hopes and expectations. Just what a unique powerful and very high-energy way of telling this story. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2020
4/5 Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) Perri Nemiroff If you're new to the contest like me, this movie is a silly, good time that will probably make you want to give the contest itself a go when it does return, and I really do think that's a big achievement here. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2020
3.5/5 7500 (2019) Perri Nemiroff This is a very ambitious and impressive first feature for Vollrath. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2020
1.5/5 Artemis Fowl (2020) Perri Nemiroff It really all amounts to one big wasted opportunity filled with kind of unforgivable missteps. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2020
4/5 The King of Staten Island (2020) Perri Nemiroff Apatow builds a world and a group of characters that you genuinely want to spend more time with. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2020
4/5 The Lovebirds (2020) Perri Nemiroff The Lovebirds still works because Leilani and Jibran's relationship is a super strong backbone for the whole thing. And Rae and Nanjiani are kind of perfect together in this. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2020
2.5/5 SCOOB! (2020) Perri Nemiroff If you're a long time fan of the brand, there might not be enough fun and also depth here to really make it satisfying. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2020
4/5 How to Build a Girl (2019) Perri Nemiroff Everything about Johanna's journey just feels so lived in, authentic, and pure. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2020
2.5/5 Dangerous Lies (2020) Perri Nemiroff A lot of it is very heavy on the melodrama, but worst of all here is that when you finally do get the answer in the end, it lands with a huge thud. EDIT
Posted May 1, 2020
The Willoughbys (2020) Perri Nemiroff I think if you appreciate kooky humor and also really vibrant animation, you need to check this one out. EDIT
Posted Apr 27, 2020
Bad Education (2019) Perri Nemiroff [Hugh] Jackman is excellent in this movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 27, 2020
3/5 Uncorked (2020) Perri Nemiroff The general idea of Elijah pursuing this really unique dream played well enough to keep me engaged and also to truly have me care about the outcome of the movie. EDIT
Posted Mar 30, 2020
4/5 Stargirl (2020) Perri Nemiroff It's a movie that kind of leaves you just feeling good, wanting to do something good for other people, and also encouraging you to be kinder to yourself. EDIT
Posted Mar 16, 2020
3.5/5 Bloodshot (2020) Perri Nemiroff For a wild movie about a super soldier with nanotechnology running through his veins played by Vin Diesel, I bought into the concept enough, dug the movie's energy, and even walked away wanting to see what could come next should it launch a franchise. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
4/5 The Hunt (2020) Perri Nemiroff It's a really energetic, bloody romp that still gives you some worthwhile food for thought. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
4.5/5 Onward (2020) Perri Nemiroff The adventure and world building in Onward are utterly delightful with an especially effective balance of playfulness and depth. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2020
4/5 Downhill (2020) Perri Nemiroff It is way more poignant than I expected it to be, but of course, Downhill also has a lot to offer in the comedy department, too. EDIT
Posted Feb 18, 2020
4.5/5 Palm Springs (2020) 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
Posted Feb 6, 2020
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
Posted Feb 4, 2020
4.5/5 Uncut Gems (2019) Perri Nemiroff This felt like a one-of-a-kind experience thanks to the Safdie brothers' style. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2019
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
Posted Oct 24, 2019
4/5 Downton Abbey (2019) Perri Nemiroff It's just such a breezy watch. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2019
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
