8/10 Hustlers (2019) Edward Douglas I'm not sure if women who see this movie will rush out to take stripping classes in order to fuel their sense of empowerment, but Hustlers is a genuinely enjoyable film that tells a fascinating story. EDIT

Kamera o tomeru na! (2017) Edward Douglas The complex intricacies ... makes this one of my favorite recent zombie-related movies since the similarly great Korean film, Train to Busan. EDIT

7/10 The Goldfinch (2019) Edward Douglas It's long at 2.5 hours but Theo's story is a complicated one to tell, and it all adds up and pays off eventually. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! (2017) Edward Douglas Super Size Me 2 is as entertaining as some of [Morgan's] past films. EDIT
Posted Sep 4, 2019
Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice (2019) Edward Douglas Continues a long run of solid music docs we've been getting so far this year. EDIT
Posted Sep 4, 2019
8/10 It: Chapter Two (2019) Edward Douglas Incredibly satisfying, because it feels like every moment in the first chapter eventually does pay off, some in quite emotional ways. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Edward Douglas A joyous inspirational film that showcases Bell's talent. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
7/10 Angel Has Fallen (2019) Edward Douglas Offers enough action, tension and drama to be worth the price of admission, making it one of the better threequels in recent memory. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
5.5/10 Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Edward Douglas I'm honestly surprised this isn't a Netflix movie. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
8.5/10 Good Boys (2019) Edward Douglas I haven't laughed this hard in a very long time. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2019
8/10 Blinded by the Light (2019) Edward Douglas A thoroughly enjoyable film with a lot to like about it, even if you're not a fan of 'The Boss.' EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2019
Esto no es Berlín (2019) Edward Douglas What's especially interesting is the exploration of sexuality by the two friends in the movie and how that is affected as they go further down a rabbit hole of drugs and depravity. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
Vision Portraits (2019) Edward Douglas It's not a sexy movie, but it's an important one. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Edward Douglas A very enjoyable film that might have some appeal to wrestling fans EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
One Child Nation (2019) Edward Douglas A heartbreaking and emotional film with the situation so well portrayed by the two filmmakers. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
6/10 The Red Sea Diving Resort (2018) Edward Douglas Tone is all over the place, sometimes to the point of ridiculousness. Bouncing back and forth from the serious to the frivolous is not something that works in this case. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Tel Aviv on Fire (2018) Edward Douglas I didn't go into it expecting a comedy, so when it proved to be particularly witty and entertaining, I was glad I made the effort to see it. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
7.5/10 The Nightingale (2018) Edward Douglas This is a tough and serious drama that still has genre elements, but it leaves a lasting imprint on you, not always in a good way. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
8/10 Luce (2019) Edward Douglas I would not be remotely shocked if Spencer gets another Oscar nomination for her role in this. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Skin (2018) Edward Douglas The film marks a career best for Bell, who just carries himself so differently that it's hard to believe that it's the same actor who played Bernie Taupin in Rocketman. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2019
8/10 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Edward Douglas It takes some time to get there, but when it comes down to it, Once Upon a Time... is a decent mid-range Tarantino film. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2019
Sea of Shadows (2019) Edward Douglas Not your typical DisneyNature film and definitely not for kids ... the scenes with the vaquitas show them to be beautiful animals with true intelligence and soul, making their plight that much more heartbreaking. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
8.5/10 Sword of Trust (2019) Edward Douglas A true joy and why independent filmmakers like [Lynn] Shelton are still so important in this day of big budget remakes, sequels and focus on franchises... EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
9/10 The Farewell (2019) Edward Douglas Wang's film is a must-see, and I'd be shocked if Awkwafina wasn't in the Oscar discussions by year's end. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
5.5/10 Stuber (2019) Edward Douglas Ends up being so predictable and by the books, while also being kind of offensive to its own characters, you leave the movie wondering if it was worth it for the little bit of entertainment it provides. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love (2019) Edward Douglas An amazing film by the award-winning documentarian that has a lot of revelations. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2019
7/10 Midsommar (2019) Edward Douglas If your favorite part of Hereditary was its crazy ending and you didn't think it was crazy enough, then Midsommar is the movie for you! EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
8.5/10 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Edward Douglas Tom Holland's Spider-Man is one of the best MCU characters who proves that he can readily carry a movie on his own. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
9/10 Yesterday (2019) Edward Douglas Yesterday is just wonderful, and it's easily one of my favorite movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
8.5/10 Wild Rose (2018) Edward Douglas The film is pretty amazing, especially to watch Rose-Lynn's story unfold and how much energy Buckley brings to the role. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2019
Plus One (2019) Edward Douglas If you're the type of person who gets dragged to weddings every other weekend, this movie is definitely for you. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2019
8.5/10 Toy Story 4 (2019) Edward Douglas A more than worthy finale to the series that's as funny, entertaining and emotional as the first three movies. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019
8.5/10 Late Night (2019) Edward Douglas A joyous breakout film for Kaling ... if you can imagine a cross between Tina Fey's 30 Rock and Kumail Nanjiani's The Big Sick EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
6/10 Men in Black: International (2019) Edward Douglas Tessa Thompson shines in an otherwise uninspired and mostly unfunny reboot that really doesn't give much hope for the future of this franchise. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
4.5/10 Dark Phoenix (2019) Edward Douglas Granted, Dark Phoenix isn't the worst superhero movie ever made. It's just so lazy in every aspect of its storytelling and filmmaking you wonder if anyone but Kinberg even gives a [crap] anymore. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2019
9/10 Rocketman (2019) Edward Douglas Before seeing Rocketman, I had absolutely zero interest in Elton John or his music. After seeing it, I just can't stop listening to his music with new ears, and I can't wait to see Rocketman a second, third and fourth time. EDIT
Posted May 30, 2019
7.5/10 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Edward Douglas Dougherty does a decent job with what ends up being a very complex film, both technically and trying to keep the humans as interesting as the monsters. EDIT
Posted May 28, 2019
7/10 Brightburn (2019) Edward Douglas The ultimate Richard Donner mash-up - part-Superman, part-The Omen - Brightburn isn't perfect, but it's a conceit that actually works to create a fun and gory time. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
8.5/10 Tolkien (2019) Edward Douglas Tolkien is a flawed film for sure, but the last half hour is so abundantly full of feels it's easy to forgive the earlier problems. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2019
8.5/10 Peterloo (2018) Edward Douglas Leigh's best film in many, many years, possibly on par with some of his best work even though it deals a far more difficult (and localized) subject. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
7.5/10 The Highwaymen (2019) Edward Douglas This is definitely my kind of movie. EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2019
7.5/10 Us (2019) Edward Douglas For all its weirdness, Us does pay off in a fairly big way ... creating a movie so crazy and infuriating at times it will get people talking. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
7/10 Captive State (2019) Edward Douglas It's pretty obvious that Captive State is not meant as science fiction film for the masses, but rather, one meant for dedicated sci-fi fans who read novels and want to be challenged intellectually. EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
7/10 Captain Marvel (2019) Edward Douglas Captain Marvel does the job it was meant to do, and I can understand how some people might like it more than others. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2019
6/10 Greta (2018) Edward Douglas Greta is fairly ridiculous and blatantly obvious, and frankly, don't we deserve at least a little better from an Isabelle Huppert film? EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2019
6.5/10 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Edward Douglas Starts off so grueling and boring ... manages to deliver enough of a third-act payoff to win the viewer over, an amazing recovery to end the series on a high note. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
8.5/10 Fighting With My Family (2019) Edward Douglas Merchant has created quite a wonderful film that I'm excited for WWE fans to see, as well as those who have never watched a single wrestling event in their life. EDIT
Posted Feb 10, 2019
4.5/10 Cold Pursuit (2019) Edward Douglas Just doesn't offer anything particularly interesting beyond the typical Hollywood revenge flicks with the film's better action setpieces being taken almost verbatim from the original movie. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2019
5/10 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Edward Douglas As great as Alita might look, make no mistake that this is a very bad movie. I'm not even sure diehard fans of the Manga will be able to tolerate its constant stream of stoic silliness. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2019
6/10 () Edward Douglas Miss Bala has guns, explosions, a decent guideline to work from and Gina Rodriguez... so why is it still so frickin' boring? EDIT
