Rating Title/Year Author
3/4 Wild Rose (2018) Roger Moore A vivid, estrogen-charged charmer of self-actualization, self-destruction and country music. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
3/4 The Art of Self-Defense (2019) Roger Moore Violently amusing satiric take on toxic masculinity and bullying for an age when the bullies seem to have the upper hand. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
1.5/4 Stano (2019) Roger Moore Tepid, slow second-chance romance/last chance at baseball drama that plays more like "The Seventh Inning Stretch." EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2019
3/4 Skin (2018) Roger Moore Bell's transformation, like the subject the movie is about, is harrowing. EDIT
Posted Jul 17, 2019
2.5/4 Consequences (2018) Roger Moore Predictable but somewhat harrowing coming-of-age-in-Slovenian reform school drama. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2019
2/4 4 latas (2019) Roger Moore Almost...not quite...worth the trip. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2019
1.5/4 Point Blank (2019) Roger Moore A taut thriller descends into the lamest excesses of a "buddy comedy" in this violent misfire. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2019
2/4 Luz (2018) Roger Moore A slight story overwhelmed by audience-repelling "technique." Frustrating to get into, impossible to enjoy. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2019
1.5/4 L'homme fidèle (2018) Roger Moore So brief, dry and airless one hesitates to call it a "romantic comedy" or even a comedy. EDIT
Posted Jul 13, 2019
2/4 () Roger Moore Not bad. But not surprising either. EDIT
Posted Jul 13, 2019
1/4 Surviving Confession (2018) Roger Moore A priest-in-crisis melodrama that commits that cardinal sin of the cinema -- it's boring. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
2.5/4 Pihu (1970) Roger Moore Cute and paranoid, playing to every parents' fears of what a toddler can get into when left on her own. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
2.5/4 Crawl (2019) Roger Moore Formulaic but harrowing. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
2.5/4 The Perfect Date (2019) Roger Moore Obvious. But the banter's winning and the leads damned adorable together. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
1/4 Swiped (2018) Roger Moore Not funny. Not sexy. Not poignant. Not much of anything. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
2.5/4 The Lion King (2019) Roger Moore Too little that's "new," a perfectly passable time-killer as a summer movie, nothing more. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
3/4 American Heretics: The Politics of the Gospel (2019) Roger Moore A film that shines a light on those who would be a candle in the midst of the Medieval darkness of modern, white Southern American Christianity. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
2.5/4 Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable (2018) Roger Moore Upbeat reprise of an inspirational story backed by routinely pretty surf documentary visuals. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
2/4 Desolate (2018) Roger Moore Lean, visually striking mid-Climate Change thriller that's about two plot twists too complicated for its own good. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
2/4 Saving Zoë (2019) Roger Moore Competent but stolid mystery thriller whose ladies/siblings -- the Marano sisters -- can't lift into something moving or special. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
2.5/4 Lying and Stealing (2019) Roger Moore This "Thomas Crown Lite" caper comedy makes a fine vehicle for Theo James and Emily Ratajkowski. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
2.5/4 En guerre (2018) Roger Moore Bracing but despairing French labor docu-drama. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
3/4 Sword of Trust (2019) Roger Moore THE indie comedy of the summer. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
1.5/4 Trespassers (2018) Roger Moore Formulaic in the extreme. But the torture porn finale will make you squirm. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2019
2/4 La chute de l'empire Américain (2018) Roger Moore Long-winded, ineptly-plotted satire of broken Western Civilization and the capitalism that killed it. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2019
3/4 Mike Wallace Is Here (2019) Roger Moore Entertaining film profile that is more a celebration of the interviewer, in his own words, than a dissection of his style, strengths and failings. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
1.5/4 Stuber (2019) Roger Moore Nanjiani just kills...But the movie does, too. And the violence overhwelms the comedy. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2019
3/4 The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) Roger Moore if not a great film, it at least has the whiff of greatness about it. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
2/4 Svaha: The Sixth Finger (2019) Roger Moore Something of a fascinating muddle. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
1/4 () Roger Moore The ending that comes after all the predictable twists and turns and action beats is so thoroughly botched that you'll feel cheated. I know I did. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
1.5/4 A pesar de todo (2019) Roger Moore The director cast the sexiest sirens of Spanish language cinema...but all she's done for them is make them "Women on the Verge of Being in a Funnier Movie." EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2019
2.5/4 VS. (2018) Roger Moore Formulaic troubled-kid-saved-by-rap drama, made winning by its cast and its novel British (Southend) setting. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2019
2/4 Cold Blood (2019) Roger Moore Traces of the Jean Reno we love are obscured by a convoluted hit-man thriller that's too obvious to thrill. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2019
3/4 Firecrackers (2018) Roger Moore A simple coming-of-age told with a raw ferocity and fuse-burning-down dread for the explosions to come. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
1.5/4 Silent Panic (2018) Roger Moore A tepid ditch-the-dead-body thriller that might have worked better as a new "Weekend at Bernie's." EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
3.5/4 The Queen (1968) Roger Moore Quite the film artifact, an ahead-of-its-time look at drag queens decades before "Paris is Burning" was born. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
2.5/4 Walking on Water (2018) Roger Moore Intimate portrait of a combative artist at work, but so straightforward as to be the very definition of "documentary." EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
3/4 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Roger Moore So cute you want to pinch its cheeks. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
2.5/4 The Other Side of the Wind (2018) Roger Moore A fascinating artifact. Nothing more. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
1.5/4 First Impression (2014) Roger Moore Paper-thin rom-com that seems more interesting in being PG than in being funny. Or romantic. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
2/4 Yesterday (2019) Roger Moore I wanted to love this. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
3/4 Maiden (2018) Roger Moore A rich man's sport it may be, but these plucky women's story is still inspiring. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2019
2.5/4 Ophelia (2018) Roger Moore Hit or miss re-imagining of "Hamlet" that Ridley, a few cleverly staged bits and lovely Czech settings make worthwhile. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2019
2.5/4 Midsommar (2019) Roger Moore i can't say I enjoyed it...but it did keep me up all night. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2019
2.5/4 Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Roger Moore Genuinely suspenseful. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2019
3.5/4 Pavarotti (2019) Roger Moore Sublime EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2019
1.5/4 Running for Grace (2018) Roger Moore Gorgeous to look at, with a story so slow it's more "Walking in Place" than "Running with Grace." EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2019
3/4 Todos lo saben (2018) Roger Moore A soap operatic Spanish kidnapping mystery loaded with great performers showing the ugly, age-old wounds reopened by the crime. EDIT
Posted Jun 22, 2019
2/4 Holy Lands (2018) Roger Moore Tosses aside the funny idea, loses track of the stars with chemistry and chases peripheral characters in offensive directions. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2019
2/4 Berlin, I Love You (2019) Roger Moore Wildly uneven and unpleasant at times. EDIT
