Becky (2020) Edward Douglas Becky thrives from its young protagonist and trying to offer something beyond violence and gore. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2020
Judy & Punch (2019) Edward Douglas A decent debut and a frequently amusing revenge thriller from Ms. Foulkes, proving she's ready to play with her older 'brothers' at Blue-Tongue Films. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2020
Shirley (2020) Edward Douglas If this rather mundane story and movie can keep you even remotely invested for more than 10 or 15 minutes, then good on you. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2020
I Will Make You Mine (2020) Edward Douglas There's no question Lynn Chen has a solid future as a filmmaker, as she takes the ideas and characters introduced by Boyle's films to a far more emotional level. EDIT
Posted May 27, 2020
The High Note (2020) Edward Douglas There is a cuteness aspect to The High Note that makes it palatable, if not always entertaining... EDIT
Posted May 27, 2020
Inheritance (2020) Edward Douglas The severe miscasting just makes it harder for anyone to deliver on the material. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2020
The Trip to Greece (2020) Edward Douglas If you're a fan, you'll already know that spending time with these two hilarious guys is a perfectly fine alternative for being able to go on trips yourself. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2020
Military Wives (2019) Edward Douglas A wonderful film full of emotions that only true curmudgeons would feel like their time was wasted by watching it. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2020
The Lovebirds (2020) Edward Douglas The combination of Showalter, Nanjiani and Rae allows the movie to go to newer comedic territory than we've seen from any of them. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2020
7/10 Scoob! (2020) Edward Douglas It's the Scooby-Doo most will already know and love ... you can't really complain about that. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2020
The Wolf House (2018) Edward Douglas Infinitely fascinating and haunting... EDIT
Posted May 13, 2020
Castle in the Ground (2019) Edward Douglas A movie that covers ground that's been covered far better in many other indie movies. This one is quite forgettable and not really mandatory viewing. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2020
Proximity (2019) Edward Douglas If you're a fan of the sci-fi genre, you should be able to find things to like about Proximity. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2020
Capone (2020) Edward Douglas A combination of weaker material and Hardy's method-y performance causes Capone's downfall as a movie to be on par with the way the notorious gangster faded away both literally and mentally. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2020
Blue Story (2019) Edward Douglas An almost-Shakespearean coming-of-age story set against an authentic urban landscape. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2020
Spaceship Earth (2016) Edward Douglas A really strong doc. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2020
Clementine (2019) Edward Douglas Gallagher and her cast have done a fantastic job with a film that's not necessarily easy to define or describe but leaves you with a warm feeling that films like this can still be made. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2020
Arkansas (2020) Edward Douglas An erratic piece that pays tribute to far better films and that is its biggest detriment. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2020
How to Build a Girl (2019) Edward Douglas Not particularly original, making it feel about as pretentious as the British music press became in the '90s. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2020
Deerskin (2019) Edward Douglas Not for everyone, but if you enjoy Dupieux's strange filmmaking ethos then Deerskin is another highly original offering. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2020
Bull (2019) Edward Douglas A great vehicle for Morgan to have more of a leading role than he normally gets. He shines in that capacity. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2020
Vanilla (2019) Edward Douglas Kind of amazing how enjoyable this movie is considering the inexperience of both actors, and I hope this gets seen by more people. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2020
The Wretched (2019) Edward Douglas For me, this is right up there with The Invisible Man, as far as this year's stronger horror films. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2020
Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All-Time Volume 1: Midnight Madness (2020) Edward Douglas A great entry into cult movies I recommend whether you're already a fan of this movie subgenre or not. EDIT
Posted Apr 28, 2020
Robert the Bruce (2019) Edward Douglas I'm not sure I've ever been more bored watching a movie as I was watching this one. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2020
True History of the Kelly Gang (2019) Edward Douglas A fine film by Kurzel and one that will make me rethink his previous movies and intrigued in what he does next. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2020
Extraction (2020) Edward Douglas I would have loved to see this on the big screen, even if it was a press screening at Netflix's newly-managed Paris Theater. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2020
Endings, Beginnings (2019) Edward Douglas Doremus returns to a more improvised style of filmmaking ... Woodley's talent elevates her performance well above her male co-stars. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2020
Abe (2019) Edward Douglas Not exactly reinventing the wheel or redefining "cinema" but it's a good film to watch with the family you may now be cooped up with EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2020
Butt Boy (2019) Edward Douglas I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2020
Sea Fever (2019) Edward Douglas I might need a few more years before I decide if Hardimann's film is quite on par [with Alien and The Thing], but it's pretty solid. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2020
Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) Edward Douglas HIttman finds a way to tell this story sans pathos and the drama always comes from a real place. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
6.5/10 Bloodshot (2020) Edward Douglas If you ever wondered what Vin Diesel might be like playing The Terminator, Bloodshot has a few issues but offers enough entertainment in the way it delivers its own unique superhero experience. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
7/10 The Hunt (2020) Edward Douglas Worth a look just by how daring it is for a studio film in these times when everyone is on edge, ready to be outraged about anything and everything. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
The Burnt Orange Heresy (2019) Edward Douglas Another great release from Sony Classics in a year where they seem to be turning things around from the last couple years. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2020
The Wild Goose Lake (2019) Edward Douglas Offers further proof that Yinan is a true master of cinematic storytelling. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2020
Sorry We Missed You (2019) Edward Douglas Another decent movie from Loach (and regular writer Paul Laverty), maybe not as good as I, Daniel Blake but still worthwhile. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2020
The Banker (2020) Edward Douglas It does end up delivering a decent true-life story that will be of interest. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2020
8/10 The Way Back (2020) Edward Douglas The Way Back may be predictable (to a point) but it's a damn good version of the movie that you're expecting, offering a big-time tug on the heart strings. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2020
Greed (2019) Edward Douglas Very funny but with a clear and poignant message about what the likes of "Greedy" are regularly getting away with at the expense of beleaguered workers in poverty-stricken countries. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2020
Burden (2018) Edward Douglas Worth watching since it does deal with issues like racism and hatred that seem to constantly raise their ugly head even when we think there's hope for a better world. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2020
7.5/10 The Invisible Man (2020) Edward Douglas Delivers Hitchcock levels of tension, suspense and outright terror, and it's just a brilliant direction to go with the character. EDIT
Posted Feb 25, 2020
6.5/10 Impractical Jokers: The Movie (2020) Edward Douglas If you're already a fan of the Impractical Jokers, you'll probably like the movie. If not, you might not get it and there's just no real use trying. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2020
Corpus Christi (2019) Edward Douglas Another fantastic film from a country that has continually been delivering the goods in terms of original storytelling. EDIT
Posted Feb 18, 2020

Posted Feb 18, 2020
7/10 The Call of the Wild (2020) Edward Douglas Worthwhile more for the amazing vistas and terrific use of CG (and Terry Notary's performance as Buck) than anything else. EDIT
Posted Feb 18, 2020
