No Fathers in Kashmir (2019) Allie Loukas This film is worth a viewing and is an interesting take on other films that explore tragedy & war torn areas, we see Kashmir through the eyes of hope, forgiveness, and innocence rather than barbarianism, destroyed lives, and murder. - Allie Loukas, BRWC EDIT

Dolittle (2020) Caillou Pettis Robert Downey Jr. gives a fun performance in Dolittle, an otherwise tragically boring and uninteresting mess that has shoddy visuals and mindless adventure sequences. EDIT

Marriage Story (2019) Nick Boyd While uncomfortable to watch at times, the acting and writing in "Marriage Story" make the narrative soar. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
() Mark Goodyear Through an unwavering lens, 16 Bars investigates the ways humanity traps itself in a cage through cycles of crime. Sam Bathrick has created something special with his efforts in telling a story the world needed to hear. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
Bombshell (2019) Caillou Pettis Bombshell is a terrific showcase for Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie's acting abilities and is great in its technical efforts, but often lacks in its storytelling. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2020
The Wake of Light (2019) Joel Fisher Beautifully shot and paying homage in part to What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Wake of Light may not be the most original storyline but it's all about the journey on which the film takes its audience and not the destination. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
Betty: They Say I'm Different (2017) Alex Cole Overall, Betty - They Say I'm Different just falls flat. It's confusing and slow despite its length. I loved learning about Betty, but I don't think Betty - They Say I'm Different is going to impress or maintain the attention of the casual viewer. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
Like a Boss (2020) Caillou Pettis With one of the most unfunny scripts in film in quite some time, Like a Boss is a painfully unfunny mess with cringe-worthy humor that wastes its director and cast. EDIT
Posted Jan 12, 2020
The Gentlemen (2020) Mark Goodyear There is no covering up for the liberties Ritchie takes to have things his own way, but there is a certain acceptance of them that The Gentlemen generates and that might just be the best part. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
The Grudge (2020) Caillou Pettis The Grudge is a massive disappointment and a drastically dull horror film that has a recycled story, a wasted cast, and weak scares. EDIT
Posted Jan 5, 2020

Posted Jan 3, 2020
A Serial Killer's Guide to Life (2019) Naseem Ally Katie Brayben does a brilliant job of playing Lou. Lou is a socially awkward outcast, that is essentially trying to find her feet in the world, but her mother doesn't seem to have the patience. EDIT

Cats (2019) Megan Williams While it was a challenging musical to adapt to screen, Cats was a mess and I regret not drinking a lot before seeing it. EDIT
Posted Dec 31, 2019
The Ghost Who Walks (2019) Matt Keay It's just a shame that the finished article has troubles living up to its marketing. The film shows promise, but is largely a disappointment. EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
Little Women (2019) Caillou Pettis Little Women is a modern day masterpiece that further cements Greta Gerwig as a skilled filmmaker. It has euphoric music, excellent cinematography, and powerhouse performances from Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2019

Posted Dec 24, 2019
Revival! The Experience (2018) Lauren Turner Overall, this movie dives deep into Jesus' final days on this Earth, with the whole production coming together under this united goal. At times the sincerity and drama is a little too much - but it is in Jesus's name, after all. Merry Christmas everyone. EDIT

Kamera o tomeru na! (2017) Dan Sareen If you do go into this film expecting one thing, be prepared for your mind to be changed by the end. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2019
6 Underground (2019) Caillou Pettis 6 Underground certainly has fun, over-the-top action that Michael Bay fans are used to, but its story is ridiculously bland and incompetent. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2019
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Mark Goodyear The Rise of Skywalker has only managed to forget to make itself feel important, and as a result, ends the Skywalker Saga with a film of wondrous moments that becomes hollow when viewed as part of something larger. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2019
Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Caillou Pettis Jumanji: The Next Level is yet another wacky and greatly funny movie with a big heart and boasts tons of fun action and adventure. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2019
The Two Popes (2019) Mark Goodyear The Two Popes is a film that washes over you, almost like a cleanse, and then ushers you out the other side enlightened and with a great deal of respect for the two men who bare their flaws and find only forgiveness on their path to changing the world. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2019
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019) Megan Williams Overall, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot was fine. While it was nice to see the pair back on screen and watch them grow up into more responsible(ish) adults, it was a little messy and there were a few uncomfortable scenes. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2019
Ernesto's Manifesto (2019) Naseem Ally Watching Hidalgo's display in Ernesto's Manifesto reminded me of 'Yehya' and 'Guillermo' on 'The Jimmy Kimmel Show'. Like, how could you not love em'. They're brilliant! EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2019
Daniel Isn't Real (2019) Caillou Pettis Daniel Isn't Real is strong in its technical efforts, but it suffers greatly from a messy script and a story that isn't sure of what it wants to be. EDIT

They Shall Not Grow Old (2018) J Simpson No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, it's worth a look, to help make sense of the past and the role it played in creating our current world. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2019
Fighting With My Family (2019) Joel Fisher As the movie progresses it brings up issues such as body image, sibling rivalry and what it means to be a woman in the public eye, so even if wrestling is not your thing there may be something in the movie that strikes a chord. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019
Us (2019) Dan Barnes It's not a film that you simply watch. It's a cinematic experience the likes of which we see so rarely these days, and Peele's natural talent for suspense is comparable to the legendary Alfred Hitchcock, which is a compliment not to be taken lightly. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2019
Honey Boy (2019) Nick Boyd This is LaBeouf's therapeutic attempt at healing his tumultuous father son relationship. It is not an easy watch, but the deeply felt performances and the insights it provides, make it an experience worth having. EDIT

Posted Dec 3, 2019
Frozen II (2019) Megan Williams Overall 'Frozen 2' was decent, but a little clunky in places. While the soundtrack wasn't as memorable as the first one, the animation is incredible, and Disney just keep improving in that aspect. EDIT

The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story (2019) Jack Ford Ultimately, The Boy Band Con struggles to find the balance between a real-life showbiz story and a more serious story about a serial embezzler. EDIT

QT8: The First Eight (2019) Callum Forbes QT8 was refreshing, fun and had me hooked from beginning to end. Comparing that to the man it is talking about, I can't think of any higher praise than that. EDIT

Posted Nov 27, 2019
() Caillou Pettis Notes from Melanie is a highly effective short film that boasts great acting, a clever and witty script, and is a great display of Chris Stuckmann's writing/directing talent. EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2019
Taxi Driver (1976) Naseem Ally It's no surprise that these iconic characters in these solo driven films are played by some of the greatest actors of all time. Al Pacino. Robert De Niro. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
Countdown (2019) Megan Williams While Elizabeth Lail carried the film well enough and there were some good scares sprinkled throughout, it was not enough to hide this fact. While I wouldn't recommend seeing it in cinema, it would be a decent Halloween movie to rent later in the year. EDIT
