Fyre (2019) Hannah Chambers The entire story is equal parts messed up and wildly entertaining. EDIT

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Yolanda Machado While some Wizarding World fanatics will delight in the expanded universe of new characters, spells, and beasts to cuddle, others will wonder why this story even exists when it literally does nothing but give us way too much Johnny Depp. EDIT

The Princess Switch (2018) Emily Tannenbaum The Princess Switch is a delight. If you told me last year that I would thoroughly enjoy-nay, crave-another Parent Trap-like movie but starring Vanessa Hudgens,... I would have told you exactly what to do with your Christmas pastries. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Creed II (2018) Candice Frederick The fight scenes are appropriately intense and amazingly choreographed, and the performances are all solid, making it an overall enjoyable experience. Still, I wonder what it would have been like had if Creed II had a bit more heart. EDIT

Cam (2018) Emily Tannenbaum If you have no qualms with endings that aren't wrapped up in a bow-and are a fan of Black Mirror-you definitely want to add it to your queue. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance (2018) Kaitlin Menza A Royal Romance, which premiered just six days before the big day, is precisely what you want it to be: juicy, romantic, and slightly ridiculous. It's really not a terrible way to spend two hours of your life. EDIT
Posted Oct 31, 2018
Halloween (2018) Jen Ortiz Halloween is packed with jump scares and tense moments...self-aware, delightfully predictable, and funny. So funny! EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2018
A Star Is Born (2018) Kerensa Cadenas Cooper managed to make Gaga's star shine even brighter. She's basically her own solar system now. Sign me up for the sequel: A Universe Is Born. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2018
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Eliza C. Thompson What's most disheartening about all this is the knowledge that there's going to be at least one more installment in the series... EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2018
A Suspiria (2018) Yolanda Machado A feminine and feminist horror experience that isn't for the faint of heart. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2018
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser (2018) Yolanda Machado OK, so Sierra Burgess Is a Loser isn't perfect. But, let's face it, most rom-coms typically aren't. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) Peggy Truong Every frame of the movie is stunning and set up so meticulously that it makes you want to Instagram your TV screen. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2018
Magic Mike XXL (2015) Patti Greco Like its predecessor, Magic Mike XXL will make you horny (let's not mince words) - because, like its predecessor, the movie understands that you deserve to be worshipped. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2018
Suspiria (1977) Eliza C. Thompson Though "witch-run dance academy" is certainly one of the best ideas for a movie ever to put to paper, it's not the plot of Suspiria that makes it so wonderful so much as it is the look. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
The Descent (2005) Eliza C. Thompson The Descent is already unusual for being a horror movie with an all-female cast, but it's even more unique for being the kind of movie that explores the damage caused by a friend's betrayal. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
Crimson Peak (2015) Eliza C. Thompson Crimson Peak might not keep you up at night, but it will certainly make you think twice about marrying the first English 'sir' who wanders into town with a proposal and the deed to a mine. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
Jennifer's Body (2009) Eliza C. Thompson It is perfect, hilarious, genius, flawless, and just about every other positive adjective you can list. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
You Get Me (2017) Patti Greco The plot is predictable and ridiculous, but what might surprise you (or not) is how adept Bella is at playing a deranged killer. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
Ingrid Goes West (2017) Julia Black But writer-director Matt Spicer's Ingrid Goes West, a pitch-black comedy drenched in a bright, Instagram filter, might make the best argument yet that Instagram-centric art can be compelling. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
All I See Is You (2016) Eliza C. Thompson If All I See Is You had worked as a thriller, then maybe I wouldn't still be thinking about why Blake Lively put a dead bird in the freezer. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
Justice League (2017) Eliza C. Thompson On a scale of Suicide Squad to Wonder Woman, Justice League falls somewhere in the middle - not quite terrible but not exactly thrilling, either. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
I Am Heath Ledger (2017) Estelle Tang Watching this tender narrative, it's hard not to imagine all the wondrous things he could have made. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
A Christmas Prince (2017) Estelle Tang Watching this film, though, felt a little like having déjà vu. As each scene proceeded, I thought, I think I know what's going to happen. And I did! Picked it every time. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2018
Passengers (2016) Emma Dibdin So how do you mess this up? By making Pratt's character a reprehensible creep, making Lawrence's his unwitting victim, and expecting us to root for their romance anyway. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Miracle Run (2004) Eliza C. Thompson All of this is pretty standard basic-cable fare, but Zac's acting really does make it a little more interesting than you might assume such a movie would be. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Amy Schumer: Live From the Apollo (2015) Lauren Hoffman What the special drove home for me is that while Amy Schumer is wonderful at stand-up, it's not even the best thing she does. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
The Assault (2014) Lauren Hoffman By definition, a Lifetime movie is over-the-top melodrama, and the Steubenville rape case is a story that doesn't need to be punched up or sensationalized. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Grease: Live! (2016) Mariah Smith I'm telling the world now, I'd sell my entire immediate family down the river for five minutes alone with Doody. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
The Wiz Live! (2015) Mariah Smith At last, a live show done right. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Hairspray Live! (2016) Mariah Smith [Jennifer Hudson] is the sole star. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
The Bling Ring (2013) Elisa Benson For a movie based on an irresistible real-life story-five bored teenagers use the internet to infiltrate the closets of the rich and famous-The Bling Ring is a snooze. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Spring Breakers (2012) Elisa Benson Spring Breakers, at 90-ish minutes, is two-thirds Girls Gone Wild-debauchery, and that is the stomach-able part. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Ghostbusters (2016) Prachi Gupta Ghostbusters was pretty funny, self-aware, and even subtly subversive at times. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
The Shallows (2016) Patti Greco You do not go see a Blake Lively shark movie because you want it to be realistic; you go because you want it to be bat-shit crazy. hankfully, The Shallows delivers. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
The Boss (2016) Lauren Hoffman Movies don't need to have sophisticated plots, but they do need to make sense. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Beauty and the Beast (2017) Eliza C. Thompson Bill Condon keeps thing visually interesting enough that you'll still be engaged even while suppressing your urge to sing along with every word. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
The Most Hated Woman in America (2017) John Hendrickson People will watch it under the guise that it's high quality drama - recommended if you like The Departed or No Country for Old Men - and they'll walk away feeling like they just did a homework assignment on religious freedom. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Get Out (2017) Kendra James In using both realities in his movie, Peele brings Get Out to a higher level of horror, at least for any person of color in the audience. We're all keenly aware of how possible it is. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Eliza C. Thompson Fifty Shades Darker is better than Fifty Shades of Grey in every imaginable way. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Christmas Inheritance (2017) Laura Beck If you get through this sober, you deserve a medal! Like, a real one! From the government! EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Mommy Dead and Dearest (2017) Helin Jung Thanks to Carr's efforts, we finally get to meet Dee Dee's father Claude Pitre and other members of the Pitre family, who were absent from Dean's BuzzFeed story. And oh my god, do they have tales to tell. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Gaga: Five Foot Two (2017) Patti Greco But aside from the story about her aunt and a few brief mentions about her split from Taylor Kinney, there's not an arc to the documentary, let alone stakes. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
In the Deep (2017) Peggy Truong Folks, never ever go shark cage diving if your only reason to do it is to get back at your ex. Please. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
It (2017) Eliza C. Thompson So in conclusion, clowns = fine, kids = bad. But I'm still glad I don't live in Derry. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
mother! (2017) Patti Greco It's an allegory about mankind and the destruction of the environment. If you watch the movie with that message in mind, it's thought-provoking if not your cup of tea. But if you go in totally blind, you might just feel grossed out an annoyed. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Wonder Woman (2017) Eliza C. Thompson Watching Wonder Woman felt like breathing out a sigh of relief. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Black Panther (2018) Alexis Nedd Black Panther is groundbreaking in a multitude of ways. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Red Sparrow (2018) Eliza C. Thompson Red Sparrow, unfortunately, is not such a movie, and is in fact so bad that it ought to be Exhibit A in the case against men ever being allowed to direct female-led action movies. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Patti Greco If you go into Fifty Shades Freed with no expectations, a sense of humor, and wine, you'll have a good time. EDIT
