Blind Fury (1989) Leona Laurie Stranger danger! Just because Rutger Hauer says he's blind doesn't mean you should let him put his paws all over your annoying kid's face. EDIT

Venom (2018) Leona Laurie Jenny Slate, kudos to you for getting one of those superhero movie paychecks. If only this film were worthy of your talent... EDIT

4/5 Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Kimberly Pierce Director Josie Rourke makes an impressive screen debut, crafting not only a beautiful period piece, but also an important and timely story. EDIT

4/5 Widows (2018) Kimberly Pierce Widows has McQueen's depth, all the while bringing Flynn's pulpiness. EDIT
Posted Dec 26, 2018
2/5 Aquaman (2018) Kimberly Pierce Ultimately, like much of the DCEU, Aquaman just can't make things work. While there's a definite sense of humor behind the film, it doesn't take things far enough. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2018
Superman 40th Anniversary (2018) Leona Laurie Christopher Reeve IS Superman, but although he makes the other guys who've donned the suit look like chumps in the original, the movie overall is no Superman II, which is rad. EDIT

2 Green Book (2018) Kimberly Pierce Green Book (fancies) itself a progressive .... awards season film, but there are moments in the narrative which are unbelievably tone deaf and in truth, almost regressive. EDIT

Easter Bunny is Comin' to Town (1977) Erin Lynch It's actually a beautiful story with many heartfelt moments. It also has one of the most fun villain names to say ever - Burgermeister Meisterburger. And what could make this story any better? The legendary Fred Astaire is the narrator. EDIT

Leprechaun's Christmas Gold (1981) Erin Lynch If you're a fan of Irish folklore, it's a must-see special. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2018
The Year Without a Santa Claus (2006) Erin Lynch In addition to the beautiful and diverse colors Rankin/Bass got into this film, they also created a mythos for Mother Nature... [Heat Miser and Snow Miser] songs, especially Snow Miser's are the songs I think about most during Christmas. EDIT

4.5/5 Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Kimberly Pierce This is a powerful and well-crafted story which definitely deserves to be told, and.... the movie should continue to be a presence deep into awards season. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2018
3/5 Don't Go (2018) Kimberly Pierce Gleeson's creation of the environment's tone through the visual, Don't Go builds a fascinating narrative which keeps you on edge right up until the final credits roll. EDIT

1/5 Mid90s (2018) Kimberly Pierce In fact, the film is in celebration of a toxic masculinity that the contemporary #MeToo movement is currently taking a stand against. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2018
2.5/5 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Kimberly Pierce With such a shallow and poorly developed take on this story, this film ends up feeling like a vanilla flavored .... take on what must have been a far more interesting story. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2018
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) Leona Laurie I give this a "Fresh" rating because it owns its place in history and is not nearly as bad as many of the action movies I've watched & discussed online. EDIT
Posted Oct 17, 2018
4.5/5 Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Kimberly Pierce There is so much here to like .... The quirky thriller brings well-structured characters, solid action and beautiful filmmaking. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2018
4.5/5 First Man (2018) Kimberly Pierce Damien Chazelle has done it again with First Man. The period piece is a bit of a challenge, but this is bound to be one of the top movies of 2018. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2018
2/5 A Star Is Born (2018) Kimberly Pierce While Lady Gaga shines, the problematic narrative makes it clear that it is the unlikable Jackson Maine with whom audiences are supposed to identify. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2018
Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Leona Laurie Chicanos love Moz. Also: Practical fashion for Hope van Dyne might foreshadow fewer high heels for female heroes in future MCU films. Not holding breath, but fingers crossed! EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2018
Deadpool 2 (2018) Leona Laurie A good sequel answers the question "What next?" This bad sequel just says, "Let's do the same schtick, and literally crank it up to 11 in case anyone misses what we're about." EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2018
2/5 The Sisters Brothers (2018) Kimberly Pierce The western is noticeably hampered by structural and tonal issues ... Solid performances by likable actors can't save this indie western being weighed by its script. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2018
2/5 Night School (2018) Kimberly Pierce Ultimately, fans of the comedian will get a kick out of this ... but it's frustrating to see this become a largely generic comedy when there's more interesting material here. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2018
Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Leona Laurie This movie is definitely a "Part 1," so final review is reserved for when Part 2 is over, BUT- so much good stuff! (Except the romance. Stop forcing it in, MCU.) EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2018
2/5 Mandy (2018) Kimberly Pierce Ultimately, the lack of a coherent script hampers the movie in a number of ways, largely overshadowing some very interesting direction ... leave this one to stream. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2018
Black Panther (2018) Leona Laurie A big win for representation on screen & behind the scenes, my only criticism is that I like the women better than the lead. Fingers crossed for girl power in the sequel. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2018
4/5 The Disaster Artist (2017) Kimberly Pierce The Disaster Artist is a love letter to The Room. The painstaking recreations of certain shots are fascinating to watch. Be sure to stay through the credits. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2018
4.5/5 A Simple Favor (2018) Kimberly Pierce In a series of features which ... regulate(s) women to the good girl/femme fatale dichotomy, A Simple Favor lets the ladies step out from the ... archetypes weighing them down. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2018
Only the Brave (2017) Kimberly Pierce Only the Brave is a powerful and emotional film (coming) out of a good place ... as a tribute to the firefighters lost ... but (those) still risking their lives everyday. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
4/5 Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Kimberly Pierce Goodbye Christopher Robin is a beautiful work of drama with touching emotionality at its core. Take time to see this beautiful film. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
1.5/5 The Snowman (2017) Kimberly Pierce With everything going on, this could have been a truly great movie... missed potential is so frustrating. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
1/5 Suburbicon (2017) Kimberly Pierce The idea of the bizarre nature of suburbia has been explored by dozens of movies in the past, and it has been done better. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
2/5 A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Kimberly Pierce A Bad Moms Christmas is a film which does its job, nothing more, nothing less. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
5/5 Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Kimberly Pierce The film comes in ...as one of the strongest entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. If you are in anyway a fan of the Marvel movies ... get to Thor: Ragnarok. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
2/5 Wonderstruck (2017) Kimberly Pierce Coming from a filmmaker capable of wowing with his visual flair, Wonderstruck fails to illicit much wonder .... This one could have been a heck of a lot better. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
3/5 Murder on the Orient Express (2017) Kimberly Pierce The film struggles visually and narratively in places. As such, this version of the classic story doesn't present anything new or unique... does this story need to be retold? EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
2/5 Justice League (2017) Kimberly Pierce This movie is not ready for prime time, and DC should be ashamed of themselves for letting their wind from Wonder Woman completely escape. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
5/5 Lady Bird (2017) Kimberly Pierce This is a enjoyable and refreshing drama which is definitely a must see on its road to wide-release. Go see it... then go call your mom. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
4/5 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Kimberly Pierce Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri is an incredibly solid film. The strength of the talented ensemble will take the movie far. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
3.5/5 The Greatest Showman (2017) Kimberly Pierce This movie is an absolute joy. Fans of ... Jackman should definitely check (this) out, showcasing the talented actor in an exciting return to his musical roots. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
4/5 Darkest Hour (2017) Kimberly Pierce In (Oldman's) hands, Churchill is realistic. He's insecure. He's uncertain of himself ... in relation to the situation he finds himself caught up in. This take is unique EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
5/5 I, Tonya (2017) Kimberly Pierce Margot Robbie absolutely slays in I, Tonya, particularly in the third act. Her performance picks up speed and evolves throughout the film. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
4/5 Hostiles (2017) Kimberly Pierce Scott Cooper crafts a beautiful example of cinema through some of the greatest use of western landscape in recent examples of the genre. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2018
4/5 Battle of the Sexes (2017) Kimberly Pierce In fact, Stone looses herself in the role, successfully transforming herself into the iconic tennis player. Her portrayal is a well studied one. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2018
2/5 Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Kimberly Pierce Perhaps Blade Runner 2049's biggest flaw is style over substance. Check it out for the beautiful look, but be careful diving below the surface. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2018
3.5/5 The Exception (2016) Kimberly Pierce While the film definitely has some problems, there is enough good to outweigh the bad. The movie is strikingly beautiful, and the actors fully commit themselves to the art. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2018
4.5/5 The Big Sick (2017) Kimberly Pierce Between the stellar cast, likable characters and the engaging script, there is plenty here to like. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2018
4/5 Wonder Woman (2017) Kimberly Pierce With the film on-course for a stellar opening weekend ... the period superhero movie proves itself to be a exciting and entertaining entry to the DC cinematic universe EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2018

4/5 The Belko Experiment (2016) Kimberly Pierce Under the guiding hand of James Gunn ... they create a disturbingly funny, yet cringe inducing film that will keep audiences entertained right up until the end. EDIT
