6/10 There's Someone Inside Your House (2021) Nicolás Delgadillo There's Someone Inside Your House simply feels like a hollow and increasingly dull picture. EDIT

7/10 No Time to Die (2021) Joshua Mackey Where previous Bond movies either leaned heavily into darker or more campy tones, Craig's final film as Bond merges both elements to create a character that feels entirely its own. EDIT

6/10 Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) Britany Murphy Ultimately, the movie felt rushed. What was also lacking in the storyline, unfortunately, overshadowed some of the movie's better moments. EDIT

6/10 Dear Evan Hansen (2021) Jonathan Rome Even with its flaws, Dear Evan Hansen manages to be a heartfelt story encouraging us all to speak when times are tough, because we are not alone. EDIT

8.5/10 Candyman (2021) Joshua Mackey DaCosta's Candyman is haunting, powerful and is another reminder that the racist sins of the past leave behind a legacy that still reverberates strongly today. EDIT

8.5/10 Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) Josephine L. It is a fantastic origin story that is very friendly for viewers like me with little to no existing Marvel knowledge. Overall, I found this movie to be a must-watch; better yet, I came out of this movie wanting to watch it again and again! EDIT

9/10 The Night House (2020) Rihaana Stark A well-crafted, mysterious ghost story that manages to keep an audience of 21st-century horror fans entertained. This is not an easy feat. EDIT

9/10 Respect (2021) Joshua Mackey Aretha Franklin gained adoration, acclaim, success, and most of all, the respect she deserved. This movie is a testament to that. A must-see of the summer. A must-see of this time. EDIT

7/10 Jungle Cruise (2021) Britany Murphy While the story is formulaic in terms of typical action-adventure tales, it really does shine with the chemistry between its leads. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2021
9/10 The Green Knight (2021) Sabrina Ramirez Rich with stunning visuals and intoxicating pacing, it provides a surreal coming-of-age chivalric romance that sets it apart from any prior medieval adaptation. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2021
8/10 The Suicide Squad (2021) Joshua Mackey This film is a wild ride full of intense action scenes, hilarious dialogue, and characters dripping in charisma. If chaotic good were a movie, it would be this one. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2021
8/10 Fear Street Part Three: 1666 (2021) Angel Amaral I can confidently say the movie is a step up from the previous two because it is the most grotesque, includes an intriguing twist, and hooks you enough to want to unravel this must-see mystery. EDIT
Posted Jul 26, 2021
Old (2021) Rihaana Stark These elements don't break the movie, they break the storytelling. The source material, Sandcastle, is 112 pages. Stretching that material into two hours of film was undoubtedly hard, but maybe it shouldn't have been done in the first place. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2021
6/10 Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) Andrew J. Salazar Snake Eyes is probably is the best G.I. Joe movie thus far, even if that isn't exactly the best compliment. We just have to hope the next film will have a sharpened focus, allowing for a smoother transition into the extravagant world of the Joes. EDIT
Posted Jul 22, 2021
7/10 Fear Street Part Two: 1978 (2021) Angel Amaral If Fear Street Part One: 1994 is a love letter to Wes Craven's Scream... then Fear Street's middle chapter takes an effective stab at Stephen King horror and Friday the 13th. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2021
4 / 10 The Tomorrow War (2021) Nicolás Delgadillo Its setup is more tedious than interesting and nearly all of its dialogue is exposition; even emotional moments are just characters explaining something that happened. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2021
7/10 Fear Street Part One: 1994 (2021) Angel Amaral Fear Street is a bag of treats for movie fans! Even more so, it is the latest love letter to the horror genre while emphasizing a compelling portrait of bravery rooted in friendship and LGBTQ+ romance. EDIT
Posted Jul 6, 2021
8/10 Black Widow (2021) Britany Murphy Black Widow is a thoroughly entertaining flick that is likely to please audiences with its action, wittiness, and great characters. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2021
7/10 F9 The Fast Saga (2021) Joshua Mackey With cars defying physics, almost every character capable of martial arts, and numerous death-defying stunts, the goal of F9 is to live within the fantasy. If you can get behind that, then you're in for a wild ride. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2021
8.5/10 Luca (2021) Britany Murphy With vibrant visuals, an amazing voice cast and important messages, Luca solidifies itself as one of DisneyPixar's best. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2021
10/10 In the Heights (2021) Andres Cabrera That's what In the Heights is, "Latino Joy." A passionate celebration of Latino expression and identity. Filled with music styles of all different nations, Spanish is spoken freely, and unabashed pride in one's culture that's been long overlooked. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2021
Awake (2021) Nicolás Delgadillo Awake is much more than its world-ending concept alone. It's the story and emotions of the central, broken family that elevates the film beyond the usual genre trappings. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2021
6/10 Cruella (2021) Britany Murphy Cruella had some memorable moments, however, it continues the trend of Disney's live-action movies not coming close to the magic that is captured in their animated counterparts. EDIT
Posted May 27, 2021
5/10 Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021) Rihaana Stark When you have an unlikely talent such as Chris Rock co-producing and co-writing with James Wan and Leigh Whannell, you don't necessarily expect something different, you expect more. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2021
7.5/10 Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021) Britany Murphy Directed and written by Taylor Sheridan, Those Who Wish Me Dead is a thrilling story with many moving parts that work well. Jolie is formidable as Hannah and this role reminds us once again that Jolie is a true action star. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2021
8.5/10 Mortal Kombat (2021) Elijah Montoya The highly anticipated Rated R flick is one of the most enjoyable, gory, and faithful video adaptations ever made to date. EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2021
Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Andrew J. Salazar These two characters probably won't meet again for another lifetime, but thankfully Godzilla vs Kong is good enough to make anyone want to savor every bit of this moment. EDIT

8/10 Executive Order (2020) Ferdosa Abdi Ramos is certainly a talented individual as the film is able to balance so much and remain entertaining and engaging throughout. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2021
8.5/10 Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) Britany Murphy Full of heart and better late than never, Zack Snyder's Justice League is the film audiences deserved to see in theatres almost four long years ago. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2021
9/10 Coming 2 America (2021) Dorian Parks This film has something for everybody and I'm excited a new generation will get to experience so many legendary actors together in one film. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2021
7/10 Tom & Jerry (2021) Jonathan Rome Tom & Jerry maintains the spirit of its franchise in this absolutely bonkers film about staying true to yourself and bringing people together (even if they want to drop an anvil on the others' head). EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2021
Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) Josephine L. This movie had me laughing, crying, cheering all in a span of its 114-minute run. Even now, I get emotional just thinking about this movie, its message, and its impact. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2021
Cherry (2021) Rihaana Stark I never doubted Tom Holland's acting abilities, but this is easily his best performance yet. He plays the new, wary soldier just as effortlessly as he plays the junkie willing to do anything it takes to get his next high. EDIT
Posted Feb 25, 2021
5.5/10 The United States vs. Billie Holiday (2021) Britany Murphy Despite the familiarity in the film's execution and the unevenness, the performances from the cast shine the brightest. Andra Day puts her entire being into her portrayal of Holiday and doesn't miss a beat. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2021
Flora and Ulysses (2020) Ferdosa Abdi Nearly every aspect of the film is designed to make you feel nostalgic and excited to be on a fun, albeit childish, adventure. Anyone can enjoy this film. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
To All the Boys: Always and Forever (2021) Josephine L. It's clear that it's the perfect ending for Lara Jean's story, for now at least. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2021
Young Hearts (2020) Nicolás Delgadillo here's a genuine sense of familiar warmth throughout the film that's hard to describe -- it's almost like a time machine that makes you yearn for those youthful days again. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2021
Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) Britany Murphy With a script from Wiig and Mumolo, the movie is zany and ridiculous, and yet, it completely works. There is a lot that is crammed into the film's funtime, with one nonsensical thing coming after another, but it's sure to keep you laughing. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2021
9/10 Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) Dorian Parks With Judas and the Black Messiah, King crafted a timeless and compelling piece of cinema that will be referenced and spoken about for years to come. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021
Land (2021) Britany Murphy In her feature directorial debut, Wright shines both in front of and behind the camera in Land. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2021
5/10 Malcolm & Marie (2021) Britany Murphy From the meandering pace to the way the songs within the film point out exactly where the film is headed in a very on-the-nose fashion, Malcolm & Marie is very much a film that centers on Black people yet is very clearly written by a white man. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2021
Skyfire (2019) Nicolás Delgadillo Skyfire has all the proper excitement and rhythm of a popcorn disaster movie, but it's sorely lacking in the humanity department. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2021
6/10 The Ultimate Playlist of Noise (2021) Jonathan Rome There's such beauty in the world's auditory landscape, and this film did a great job at capturing that. But, beyond its sound design, I felt this film had little to offer. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2021
Locked Down (2021) Britany Murphy The film loses its way in the middle, and tries to pull things back for a decent ending. However, while perhaps better late than never is a good motto, that isn't necessarily the case for Locked Down. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
We Can Be Heroes (2020) Nicolás Delgadillo We Can Be Heroes is one of Rodriguez's strongest entries in his eclectic career. That might sound a little silly, but the film is packed full of imagination and is genuinely accessible to a vast number of people of all ages. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2021
Yellow Rose (2019) Josephine L. I cannot recommend this absolute gem of a film enough. It is poignant, touching, and so necessary. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2021
Soul (2020) Dorian Parks I could not be more excited for families to get to see Soul! It's an emotional and heart-warming story that all levels will be able to appreciate in one way or another. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2020
Promising Young Woman (2020) Britany Murphy I don't think for a second that anyone else could have played Cassie better than Mulligan. It was a performance that is award-worthy in every sense of the word. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2020
One Night in Miami (2020) Britany Murphy It is truly a testament to King's directing and Powers' writing skills that maintain the balance in all of the opposing ideas, beliefs and fates, while still basking in the light that is these men's bond. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Britany Murphy At its core, Wonder Woman 1984 is a story that is brimming with heart and romance. EDIT
