2.5/5 Fast Color (2018) Travis Hopson There's Black Girl Magic sprinkled all over the place in this movie, and while it's hard to call it a success Fast Color earns props for representation. EDIT

4.5/5 Missing Link (2019) Roxana Hadadi With its nuanced narrative and astonishing visuals, Missing Link -- meticulously detailed and thematically dense -- is another delightful offering from Laika. EDIT

2.5/5 The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018) Travis Hopson Maybe it's enough to just be happy that Gilliam is happy with it, and now he can go on tilting at brand new windmills. EDIT
Posted Apr 12, 2019
3/5 Mary Magdalene (2018) Travis Hopson About as sincere an effort to appeal to everyone as possible, which proves to be both a curse and a blessing. EDIT
Posted Apr 11, 2019
3/5 Hellboy (2019) Travis Hopson ...doesn't so much change the Hellboy formula as leave it drowning in a pool of blood. EDIT
Posted Apr 11, 2019
2.5/5 The Wind (2018) Travis Hopson While Tammi's technical skills are beyond reproach, dramatically the film stumbles along like a dusty old tumbleweed. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
2.5/5 The Mustang (2019) Travis Hopson There's power simmering just underneath the surface that The Mustang never fully taps into. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2019
3.5/5 Dumbo (2019) Travis Hopson With gorgeous production design, a simple but timeless story about overcoming labels, and a hero whose courage is as big as his ears, Dumbo is poised to fly into a lot of people's hearts. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2019
3/5 Hotel Mumbai (2018) Travis Hopson Hotel Mumbai... is not a movie to be enjoyed. It is a movie to be endured. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2019
3.5/5 Shazam! (2019) Travis Hopson With heart and imagination to spare, Shazam is the real deal and you shouldn't miss it. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
3.5/5 Dragged Across Concrete (2018) Travis Hopson You won't feel good about anything you're seeing, but it's so damn good you won't be able to turn away, either. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
2.5/5 Triple Threat (2019) Travis Hopson It is disappointing, to put it mildly, to have so much talent wasted in an actioner so pedestrian it could've starred anybody else and been just as mediocre. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
2.5/5 The Highwaymen (2019) Travis Hopson ...a film with quite a history behind it, attempts to set the record straight about Hamer and Gault in the least exciting way possible. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
2/5 The Hummingbird Project (2018) Travis Hopson If you want to watch Eisenberg and a balding Skarsgard stand around and watch construction workers dig holes, then The Hummingbird Project is for you. EDIT
Posted Mar 21, 2019
3.5/5 Us (2019) Travis Hopson ...again Peele is back exploring humanity's ills through the lens of horror, specifically the divide between us that will surely lead to our downfall. Or it's just a home invasion movie with a twist. Take your pick. EDIT
Posted Mar 21, 2019
2.5/5 Wonder Park (2019) Travis Hopson ...colorful and heavy in lessons for kids to follow, but lacking in the imagination it aims to inspire. EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
3.5/5 Gloria Bell (2018) Travis Hopson Practically a shot-for-shot remake, Lelio's film has only one thing going for it to justify its existence, and that, of course, is Julianne Moore. EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
2.5/5 Mapplethorpe (2018) Travis Hopson It's a waste of a terrifically seductive performance by Smith, who captures Mapplethorpe's enigmatic presence and arrogance. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2019

Posted Mar 5, 2019
2.5/5 Greta (2018) Travis Hopson Huppert's unhinged performance in Neil Jordan's Fatal Attraction-esque thriller is so much fun it nearly overshadows how generic everything else is. Nearly. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
3.5/5 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Travis Hopson You won't want to say goodbye to these characters we've loved for so long, but you'll be happy with where they are headed. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
3/5 Everybody Knows (2018) Travis Hopson The pieces don't all come together as they should, despite a game cast led by husband and wife duo of Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. EDIT
Posted Feb 18, 2019
3.5/5 Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Travis Hopson Happy Death Day 2Uisn't really a horror movie, it's pretty much anything and everything. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2019
2.5/5 Lords of Chaos (2018) Travis Hopson It's just odd for Akerlund, a former member of Swedish Black Metal band Bathory, to put so little focus on Mayhem's value musically. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2019
3/5 Isn't It Romantic (2019) Travis Hopson But what's charming about the feel-good rom-com Isn't It Romantic is how the genre is satirized in a way that is fun and respectful to those who still want a good old-fashioned love story. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2019
3/5 The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot (2018) Travis Hopson The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot is not the movie you're expecting. EDIT

Posted Feb 6, 2019
3.5/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Travis Hopson The battles are unrestrained and eye-popping, looking more like an episode ofDragonball Zthan the live-action movie ever did. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2019
3.5/5 Piercing (2018) Travis Hopson What unfolds in Pesce's brisk nail-biter is a psycho-sexual power play in which the roles of victim and hunter constantly shift. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2019

Posted Jan 29, 2019
2.5/5 () Travis Hopson Berlinger's movie doesn't have much going for it other than a charismatic, perfectly-cast lead. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2019
1/5 Behaving Badly (2014) Travis Hopson It's the kind of film where one can sense writer/director Tim Garrick throwing in every half-assed idea he can think of in hopes something works, but when nothing does turning up the raunch is his only fall-back plan. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2019
4/5 The Report (2019) Travis Hopson The Reportmoves entirely on the momentum of Driver's performance, capturing Daniel's dogged drive and incorruptible morality. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2019

Posted Jan 25, 2019
3/5 The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Travis Hopson An old-fashioned and enjoyable movie made for kids, it relies heavily on Cornish's clear enthusiasm for the material and the charm of his young cast. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2019
2.5/5 An Acceptable Loss (2018) Travis Hopson But there's room for a bigger discussion there, between two powerful women engaged in what is largely seen as a man's field, while Curtis and Sumpter are both extremely passionate in their few exchanges. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2019
3/5 Cold War (2018) Travis Hopson Much like Ida, the film is shot in gorgeous black & white by cinematographer Lukasz Zal, giving the feel you're watching some piece of history passed on across generations. EDIT
Posted Jan 18, 2019
3/5 Glass (2019) Travis Hopson ...while it certainly has cracks, Glass does not completely shatter under its own thematic weight. EDIT
