4/10 Dolittle (2020) Perri Nemiroff There's a lot wrong with Dolittle but one of the most shocking of the bunch is that Downey Jr.'s performance doesn't work at all. One might expect him to be well suited to play a lovable jerk, but there's no charm in his rendition of the character. EDIT

8.5/10 Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Perri Nemiroff Birds of Prey is electric! The style, the humor, the music, the performances, Ewan McGregor, the fight sequences. The more creativity and energy we get like this on the big screen, the better. EDIT

6.5/10 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Perri Nemiroff Rise of Skywalker has a bumpy start but finds its footing and when it does, it flies - especially in the third act. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2019
Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Perri Nemiroff The action is fun enough but I could watch Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black play with the body swap concept for hours. EDIT

9/10 El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Perri Nemiroff An expertly crafted continuation of Jesse's story. It's one riveting sequence after the next with stellar performances and confident work from Vince Gilligan. It's been 6 years since the Breaking Bad finale aired, but El Camino doesn't skip a beat. EDIT

6/10 Gemini Man (2019) Perri Nemiroff Will Smith (x2) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead make for an engaging lead duo in the middle of a very intriguing scenario, but there are too many half-baked components for Gemini Man to make much of an impression. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
5/10 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Perri Nemiroff The battle between Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer is hugely entertaining, but Aurora's storyline is a snooze and the digital effects of the Moors is disastrous, especially compared to the film's winning practical effects. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
8/10 Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Perri Nemiroff Zombieland: Double Tap is more of the same, but you know what? It's still super effective. As someone who fell hard for Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock back in 2009, the sequel was well worth the wait. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
9/10 The Irishman (2019) Perri Nemiroff A highly ambitious crime epic from a dream team delivering standout work all around. De Niro, Pacino & Pesci are phenomenal as is the work of editor Thelma Schoonmaker who makes a story that spans decades and clocks in at a whopping 209 minutes seamless. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
9.5/10 Knives Out (2019) Perri Nemiroff Knives Out is one of a kind. Rian Johnson doesn't hold back delivering big fun and spicy commentary with fiery results. And if you don't already know that Ana de Armas is something special, there's no excuses after this. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
9.5/10 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Perri Nemiroff Jojo Rabbit feels like next-level Taika Waititi. The concept needed spot-on work in every single department - it's all there and it comes together beautifully. Lots of laughs with purpose that send you on your way with hope in your heart. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
3.5/10 The Goldfinch (2019) Perri Nemiroff A slew of solid work that never comes together. Poor pacing, jarring transitions and a third act that feels like a completely different film. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
9/10 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Perri Nemiroff Had to catch my breath after this one. The performances are phenomenal as expected but the technical craftsmanship is next-level. The riveting visuals, expert editing, the sound design and that Marco Beltrami score! EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
8.5/10 It: Chapter Two (2019) Perri Nemiroff IT Chapter Two isn't as refined as the first, but it's still an excellent ensemble piece, oozing with heart and packed with extremely well-crafted set pieces. Muschietti weaves the young and adult Losers together well, giving the sequel an epic feel. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
7.5/10 Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Perri Nemiroff The drama often feels a bit stale but 'Scary Stories' makes up for it with exceptional scare sequences. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2019
9/10 Crawl (2019) Perri Nemiroff A batshit, wild summer thrill! Forget "edge of your seat;" I had to stop myself from jumping out of it a few times. Crawl is a must-see on the big screen with a packed house. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
8/10 The Lion King (2019) Perri Nemiroff A stunning reminder why 'The Lion King' has always been a personal favorite Disney animated classic. If you're happy to welcome back familiar thrills and tears, the filmmakers' visual wizardry will make this story well worth another go. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
9/10 Midsommar (2019) Perri Nemiroff Florence Pugh is incredible and Ari Aster is a masterful filmmaker - whether his stories are for you or not. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
7/10 Child's Play (2019) Perri Nemiroff Chucky 2.0 lacks the sinister menace of the original, but the new movie is still a winner in large part thanks to a strong lead performance from Gabriel Bateman, and a highly enjoyable blend of camp and violence. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2019
9.5/10 Toy Story 4 (2019) Perri Nemiroff Toy Story 4 is exceptional on so many levels. Non-stop laughs, jaw-dropping animation, and an especially touching chapter of Woody's journey. If you want to walk out of a movie feeling hopeful about the endless possibilities out there, this one's a must. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019
6/10 Dark Phoenix (2019) Perri Nemiroff The franchise never established the foundation needed to tell this story. That amongst other problems keeps it from being an emotional character journey and makes it yet another blockbuster spectacle that coasts on surface level entertainment value. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
6/10 Men in Black: International (2019) Perri Nemiroff As expected, Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth make a very charming duo, but it's frustrating to see a film with so much creative potential do so little with the talent and resources it has. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
7.5/10 Ma (2019) Perri Nemiroff An outrageous horror crowd-pleaser rocking a delicious villainous turn for Octavia Spencer. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
9/10 Rocketman (2019) Perri Nemiroff Rocketman is dazzling! Dexter Fletcher and Taron Egerton are proving to be a standout filmmaking duo. The music and fantasy elements are staggeringly enchanting, and the movie also delivers a deeply moving exploration of isolation and forgiveness. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2019
7/10 Aladdin (2019) Perri Nemiroff A vibrant, charming adaptation that further proves Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott are ones to watch. If the promos haven't worked for you, keep an open mind. Ultimately what matters is that those moments work in the full feature and in this case, they do. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
7/10 Brightburn (2019) Perri Nemiroff An extremely dark, violent alt take on the superhero origin story. David Yarovesky and co. push it to such an extent that 'Brightburn' likely won't be for everyone, but if you've got a taste for the darker possibilities, it's disturbingly captivating. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
8/10 John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) Perri Nemiroff John Wick 3 is wild! The series has had high quality combat throughout but the sequences the team pulls off here are downright nuts. A perfect example of why we need a stunts category at the Oscars. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2019
7.5/10 Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Perri Nemiroff A vibrant, charming adaptation with irresistible world-building that'll spread the Pokémon love even further. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2019
8.5/10 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Perri Nemiroff Avengers: Endgame is a lot - sometimes too much. But, wow, the payoff is huge. It leaves you proud to have invested over a decade in a franchise that delivers an inspiring exploration of what it means to be family and a hero. EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2019
4.5/10 Hellboy (2019) Perri Nemiroff A dizzying and overstuffed adaptation that left me utterly exhausted. David Harbour gives it his all and there's some very impressive practical effects work on display, but it's not worth the headache I walked out with. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2019
9/10 Shazam! (2019) Perri Nemiroff Shazam is a delight! Vibrant, tons of heart and a great fun-loving vibe. The family element is a big charmer and so is watching Zachary Levi explore his new powers. Also, if you didn't already know this thanks to IT, Jack Dylan Grazer is sensational. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
9/10 Booksmart (2019) Perri Nemiroff An utter delight. Booksmart rocks an electric energy, non-stop laughs, and tons of heart. Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein are true gems and they're also backed by a great ensemble. Quite the feature directorial debut for Olivia Wilde. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
9/10 Us (2019) Perri Nemiroff An eerie thrill with A+ set pieces and phenomenal ensemble. US is a wild, highly engaging ride that shines on so many levels - suspenseful home invasion thriller, commentary on what it means to be human, and more. There's no shaking it after it wraps up. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
B- Destroyer (2018) Perri Nemiroff Kusama's eye and a fantastic performance from Kidman powers this relentless, grimy mystery - almost all the through some pacing and plot issues. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
B If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Perri Nemiroff A film brimming with passion and love yet so devastating. No doubt you'll be hearing KiKi Layne and Stephen James' names more now. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2018
A- Mid90s (2018) Perri Nemiroff A great feature directorial debut for Jonah Hill. The movie rocks an all-consuming slice of life vibe. An extremely charming, raw coming of age story with a strong tinge of sadness. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2018
8/10 Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018) Perri Nemiroff Two and a half hours of non-stop insanely well shot, choreographed and performed action sequences. Christopher McQuarrie continues to solidify Mission: Impossible as one of the best action franchises out there. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2018
9.5/10 Three Identical Strangers (2018) Perri Nemiroff An absolutely riveting watch. Director Tim Wardle doesn't just present a story; the format encourages you to engage, making 'Three Identical Strangers' a wildly captivating and deeply moving mystery. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2018
6/10 Sorry to Bother You (2018) Perri Nemiroff Keith Stanfield continues to prove he's a star and Boots Riley delivers an unforgettable feature directorial debut that's oozing with creativity and style, but ultimately the narrative loses focus and fizzles out. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2018
9/10 Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Perri Nemiroff The stellar ensemble has no trouble nailing the humor while keeping suspense high and conveying some serious stakes. It's a unique and highly entertaining ride I can't wait to go on again. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2018
6.5/10 Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Perri Nemiroff Worked really, really well for me in parts - not so much the whole. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2018
9.5/10 Incredibles 2 (2018) Perri Nemiroff Incredibles 2 is a delight! The family dynamic is brilliant yet again, with Jack Jack being a major scene stealer. There's also more A+ work from composer Michael Giacchino. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2018
7/10 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Perri Nemiroff The series continues to move away from the depth, realism and magic of the original, but as a diehard fan of the franchise, Fallen Kingdom still offers up a satisfying ride set in this franchise. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2018
8/10 Deadpool 2 (2018) Perri Nemiroff Deadpool 2 goes bigger than the first, but the shockingly touching family theme pulls all of the new characters and big set pieces together well. Another wild, hilarious ride for the character with just enough honesty and heart. EDIT
Posted May 20, 2018
8.5/10 Tully (2018) Perri Nemiroff Tully is laugh out loud funny, but it's also extremely poignant with a meaningful bittersweet touch to it. EDIT
Posted May 2, 2018
7.5/10 Blockers (2018) Perri Nemiroff A smart, super raunchy comedy with cast chemistry that's through the roof. Kay Cannon makes her feature directorial debut with a film that boasts a winning ratio of laughs and heart. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2018
9/10 A Quiet Place (2018) Perri Nemiroff Sure, it's just a movie but A Quiet Place is so effective that you'll be deathly afraid of making a sound - just like the main characters. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2018
6/10 Rampage (2018) Perri Nemiroff Hokey dialogue and a terrible villain, but the charm of the Dwayne Johnson/George relationship and the fact that the destruction scenes are truly reminiscent of the game make Rampage some solid action-heavy entertainment. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2018
6/10 Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Perri Nemiroff There are some sloppy rules and failed emotional beats, but if you're a genre fan watching Truth or Dare for the clever concept and inventive kill scenes, there's some fun to be had with this Blumhouse release. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2018
7/10 I Feel Pretty (2018) Perri Nemiroff There's tons of fun to be had with the core concept, but when the time comes to say something meaningful about self-doubt, I Feel Pretty doesn't earn the important message it tries to send. EDIT
