Rating Title/Year Author
1.5/4 The Sex Trip (2017) Roger Moore A gender/boxy-switch comedy that demonstrates that sometimes a tired old idea is still tired. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
1.5/4 Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase (2019) Roger Moore Wait for it to show up on TeeVee -- slow, dull, strictly small screen material. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
2.5/4 Us (2019) Roger Moore OK, but not the scary, scintillating satire that "Get Out" was. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
2.5/4 Five Feet Apart (2019) Roger Moore Schmaltzy, manipulative -- sure. But the engaging young stars make it work. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2019
3/4 American Relapse (2018) Roger Moore Eye-opening and damning. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2019
1.5/4 () Roger Moore Slow haphazard dark comedy that loses the thread more often than not. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2019
1.5/4 Trading Paint (2019) Roger Moore Solid, well-cast and unembarrassing. But they left a better racing drama in the garage with this one. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2019
1.5/4 Wheely (2018) Roger Moore A tepid imitation of Pixar's lukewarm "Cars" movies -- with one really good Disney/"Star Wars" joke. EDIT
Posted Mar 17, 2019
3/4 Charlotte a du fun (2018) Roger Moore Sexy and sassy, if a bit chilly and distant EDIT
Posted Mar 17, 2019
2.5/4 () Roger Moore A little gem of a hospice rom com EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2019
3.5/4 Gloria Bell (2018) Roger Moore Glorious EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2019
1.5/4 Captive State (2019) Roger Moore Visually incoherent EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
1.5/4 Bruce!!! (2017) Roger Moore A lot of clever banter is lost on a star, director and co-writer who can never quite get out of his own way. EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
1.5/4 Wonder Park (2019) Roger Moore Fails to "spark joy." EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
3/4 Climax (2018) Roger Moore Guaranteed to give you flashbacks. EDIT
Posted Mar 13, 2019
2.5/4 () Roger Moore Somewhat revealing, occasionally damning, in the end it feels polished but incomplete. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
1.5/4 () Roger Moore A lot of interesting ideas trapped in a second-division script performed by dull leads. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
2.5/4 () Roger Moore A sturdy-enough recounting of the famous Holocaust Death Camp revolt story blessed with a riveting third act. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2019
2.5/4 Never Grow Old (2019) Roger Moore Gritty archetypal Western that benefits from solid performances by Hirsch and Cusack and damp, grey Irish locations EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2019
4/4 Apollo 11 (2019) Roger Moore Breathtaking. Definitive. EDIT
Posted Mar 9, 2019
1.5/4 O Clube dos Canibais (2018) Roger Moore A clever satiric idea -- the rich killing and eating the poor -- is ruined by static pacing, a filmmaker content to make this a gruesome wallow EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2019
2.5/4 Afghan Cycles (2018) Roger Moore Revelatory, but not nearly as upbeat and uplifting as the filmmaker hoped it would be. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2019
3/4 Ruben Brandt, Collector (2018) Roger Moore A clever art history primer tucked into an animated caper thriller. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2019
2.5/4 The Kid (2019) Roger Moore Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan and Chris Pratt -- cast against type -- shine in this sharply-detailed twist on an over-familiar Western tale. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2019
2.5/4 Time for Ilhan (2018) Roger Moore Instantly-dated, considering the controversy that surrounds the first Somali-American member of Congress, but still a revealing and compelling portrait of an activist turned politician who beat the odds to get where she is. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2019
2.5/4 Captain Marvel (2019) Roger Moore Liberating. Cute. Forgettable. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2019
3/4 Babylon (1980) Roger Moore A dated but vivid slice of 1980s London dub reggae life, beautifully restored. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2019
2.5/4 Tangent Room (2017) Roger Moore Good performances and simple effects lift this generally dry but fascinatingly cerebral Big Concept sci-fi drama. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2019
2/4 I'm Not Here (2017) Roger Moore Some good performances, but a mopey affair that wallows in the point it fails to get around to. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
1.5/4 Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral (2019) Roger Moore It was too much to hope Perry would send the old broad off in style. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2019
3/4 Se rokh (2018) Roger Moore Droll, subversive and biting. And laugh out loud funny, at times. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2019
1/4 Chokehold (2018) Roger Moore Clumsily written and directed thriller that's a fine primer on what a "stage punch" looks like -- from people who are supposed to look as if they're actually landing blows. EDIT
Posted Feb 28, 2019
3/4 Giant Little Ones (2018) Roger Moore Touching, sympathetic and nicely nuanced coming-of-age drama anchored in the fluid nature of teen sexuality. EDIT
Posted Feb 28, 2019
2.5/4 The Hours and Times (1991) Roger Moore All these years later, this landmark of Queer Cinema still has power, even if it seems downright quaint. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2019
2/4 Run the Race (2018) Roger Moore Another faith-based drama with almost all its edge rubbed off -- no more unpleasant than it is challenging. EDIT
Posted Feb 25, 2019
2.5/4 Arctic (2018) Roger Moore Utterly conventional polar survival tale rescued by a luminous turn by Mads Mikkelsen. EDIT
Posted Feb 25, 2019
2.5/4 Out of Blue (2018) Roger Moore Clarkson and the supporting cast and the atmospheric setting are more interesting than the muddled not-as-clever-as-they-think-it-is plot. EDIT
Posted Feb 25, 2019
2.5/4 Ferrante Fever (2017) Roger Moore Tries to avoid addressing the big question in front of it, just who is this anonymous Elena Ferrante, and is NOT knowing who she is a big part of her appeal? EDIT
Posted Feb 24, 2019
3/4 Never Look Away (2018) Roger Moore Revealing portrayal of an artist's method, and beautiful to look at -- but like "Roma," maddeningly slow. EDIT
Posted Feb 22, 2019
2.5/4 Fighting With My Family (2019) Roger Moore Featherweight and formulaic, but fun. EDIT
Posted Feb 21, 2019
2.5/4 Greta (2018) Roger Moore Elemental EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
3/4 Combat Obscura (2018) Roger Moore Unfiltered depiction of Marines, as they really are, in a combat zone. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
2/4 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Roger Moore Mirthless and sleep-inducing EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2019
2.5/4 Cradle of Champions (2018) Roger Moore Watchable, but Showtime slick and boxing picture predictable. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2019
3/4 Wrestle (2018) Roger Moore Formulaic but quite revealing coming-of-age-through-sport documentary. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2019
2.5/4 The Changeover (2017) Roger Moore Timothy Spall? When he bugs his eyes out and grins that viperous, British-dentistry grin, you know its time to hide the kids. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2019
2/4 Smaller and Smaller Circles (2017) Roger Moore This adaptation of the First Ever crime novel written in the Philippines has the the bare bones of a decent thriller. It's just that everybody involved needs more practice in the genre to get it right. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2019
1.5/4 Patrick (2018) Roger Moore For a "sweet nothing" of a movie, you kind of wish "nothing" wasn't the most accurate description. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2019
2/4 Woodsrider (2016) Roger Moore Dull, random never-quite meditative look at one snowboarder's solitary life in the shadow of Mount Hood, Oregon. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2019
3/4 Minding the Gap (2018) Roger Moore Not the deepest doc up for an Oscar this year, but certainly the most approachable. EDIT
