1/5 Dolittle (2020) Rendy Jones God, RDJ. What an embarrassment. Please, go do some A24 movies. It does a body good after coming off a long-running franchise. Just ask Robert Pattinson. EDIT

2.5/5 Underwater (2020) Rendy Jones Underwater treads the same waters (pun intended) as every Aliens-like sci-fi horror, utilizing so many familiar elements that have become outdated in of itself. EDIT

5/5 Little Women (2019) Rendy Jones No wonder this was released on Christmas Day because it's Greta's gift to the world. EDIT

1.5/5 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Rendy Jones The Rise of Skywalker makes me comprehend the hatred that haters of The Last Jedi felt. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2019
1.5/5 Cats (2019) Rendy Jones On a scale of one to Zemeckis, Hooper's Cats boldly goes beyond the uncanny valley and creates a tier of its own. EDIT

3.5/5 Spies in Disguise (2019) Rendy Jones Spies in Disguise is fun for the family and it has something for everyone. But seriously, Blue Sky, in the next decade, let's not emphasize too much on bird movies. EDIT

3.5/5 Black Christmas (2019) Rendy Jones Doesn't fall into the standard norms of slashers as Takal takes a classic and introduces it to the #MeToo era. EDIT
Posted Dec 15, 2019
3.5/5 Richard Jewell (2019) Rendy Jones Evidence that Paul Walter Hauser has the power to command a movie on his own and keep you emotionally attached to him. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2019
3.5/5 Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Rendy Jones What alternative universe are we living in where we received a sequel to two Sony properties - Angry Birds Movie and Jumanji - within the same year...AND they were both good?! EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2019
3/5 Bombshell (2019) Rendy Jones Aside from an odd choice of format and uncomfortable approach in tone, Bombshell prospers from effective performances by the major ensemble - with Theron standing out. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2019
1.5/5 Playmobil: The Movie (2019) Rendy Jones Playmobil: The Movie is everything we feared the first LEGO Movie was going to be. EDIT
Posted Dec 6, 2019
5/5 1917 (2019) Rendy Jones A glorious and breathtaking cinematic experience that examines the unbroken resilience of the human spirit. EDIT
Posted Nov 29, 2019
3/5 Queen & Slim (2019) Rendy Jones Melina Matsoukas. You better recognize that name. EDIT
Posted Nov 25, 2019
2.5/5 Frozen II (2019) Rendy Jones You can tell that 'Frozen II' was fun for everyone involved in making it, but it certainly lacks the labor of love in story that made the predecessor so profound. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2019
2/5 Charlie's Angels (2019) Rendy Jones Despite its fresh perspective, Banks's Charlie's Angels update fails to capture any of the energy, silliness, or style that made the franchise the beloved phenomenon it is. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2019
2/5 Playing With Fire (2019) Rendy Jones Hey, John Cena, if Nickelodeon is holding you hostage please blink twice. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2019
4/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Rendy Jones This is like a very long episode of Hill House had a baby with Gerald's Game... and that baby can astral project. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2019
2.5/5 Last Christmas (2019) Rendy Jones This is a big-budget Hallmark Christmas movie at best. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2019
3/5 Lady and the Tramp (2019) Rendy Jones Finally, a Disney live-action remake that I actually enjoyed. How funny, they saved their best for their streaming service. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2019
0/5 Arctic Dogs (2019) Rendy Jones Kids, if your parent puts this on for you, they clearly don't love you. EDIT
Posted Nov 3, 2019
4/5 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Rendy Jones Little did I expect for James Mangold to smash everything I knew about race car driving and make one of my personal favorites-if not THE definitive-race car films ever. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2019
3/5 The Friend (2019) Rendy Jones I don't know, given this cast, I went in expecting a comedy. What I ended up with was a tear-jerking drama that got me in my feels. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
3/5 How to Build a Girl (2019) Rendy Jones another cementing case of the gleaming star power of Feldstein's talent, who simply deserves the world. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2019
5/5 The Irishman (2019) Rendy Jones The Ben-Hur of gangster movies. Of course, Marty had to do it to 'em. He just had to do it to 'em. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2019
3.5/5 Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Rendy Jones By George, I think they got it! EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2019
2/5 Black and Blue (2019) Rendy Jones Pretentiously fails at serving as a fun action thriller with social commentary, for it doesn't have the brains to say anything at all. EDIT
Posted Oct 20, 2019
1.5/5 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Rendy Jones The film faces a major identity crisis where it doesn't set any appeal for its audience while cloaking itself to be something that it's not. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
2.5/5 Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Rendy Jones Zombieland: Double Tap is the disappointing movie that we all collectively feared the predecessor was going to be. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
2/5 Gemini Man (2019) Rendy Jones "Hey, what if we made an action movie based on the insult, 'Why are you hitting yourself?' and made it the most generic narrative but also digitally profound?" EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
2.5/5 Motherless Brooklyn (2019) Rendy Jones Motherless Brooklyn is a well-performed, yet undercooked, noir that is too mediocre to justify its confused and safe ambitions. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
.5/5 Jexi (2019) Rendy Jones You would assume that Joker would've been the Hangover-related release of 2019 geared towards incels, but nah. That title belongs to this derivative, unfunny, lifeless comedy. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
3/5 The Addams Family (2019) Rendy Jones As cheap as the animation looks, the inventive and clever humor throughout that garner laugh-out-loud moments compensates for it. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
3.5/5 Greener Grass (2019) Rendy Jones Serving as a breakthrough jump-off point, displaying the brand of humor of Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, Greener Grass is a funny, silly, and strange suburban comedy. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
5/5 Parasite (2019) Rendy Jones As I left the theater, the first words that were uttered under my breath was, "Oh, so this is what Cinema feels like?" EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
5/5 Marriage Story (2019) Rendy Jones Simply put, it's Baumbach at his Baumbest. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
4/5 Dolor y gloria (2019) Rendy Jones A fun and tightly crafted autofiction that confronts the realities of aging in an entertaining, honest light. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
3/5 First Cow (2019) Rendy Jones Due to the strength of Reichardt's leads, the dynamic they share, and its humorous fable-like tale, this 19th Century western comedy is solid enough to be worth a watch. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
3/5 Mister America (2019) Rendy Jones I don't know how many "On Cinema" fans there are in this world, but believe me when I say that this is specifically for you. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
2/5 Joker (2019) Rendy Jones From a conceptual standpoint, Joker certainly had the pieces to be a phenomenal film, but this did not need to be in the hands of Todd Phillips. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
3.5/5 A Hidden Life (2019) Rendy Jones While this is a good movie with strong storytelling, Malick desperately needs an editor to help him tell a constrained story. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
4/5 Waves (2019) Rendy Jones More so than Euphoria, more so than whatever the heck 13 Reasons Why is at this point, Waves is the media piece that nails the Gen-Z culture. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
5/5 Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) Rendy Jones Peak *clap* Lesbian *clap* Cinema. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2019
3.5/5 Atlantics (2019) Rendy Jones Go in cold because a delightful turn comes through and cranks the enticement of the plot up to an 11 while maintaining a grounded atmosphere. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019
2/5 Lucy in the Sky (2019) Rendy Jones God, what a damn mess. A chaotic, beautiful mess. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019
4.5/5 The Report (2019) Rendy Jones What NWA did to the police in a 4-minute song, Burns does to the CIA in 113 minutes through film. EDIT
Posted Sep 23, 2019
1/5 Corporate Animals (2019) Rendy Jones The film is written so broadly and doesn't have many, if any, spurts of energy to sustain its short runtime. EDIT
Posted Sep 20, 2019
2/5 Harriet (2019) Rendy Jones Harriet suffers from an egregiously formulaic script that restricts it to conventional storytelling and never delivers the impactful significance of the figure it's based on. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
4.5/5 Uncut Gems (2019) Rendy Jones An exhilarating, anxiety-inducting thrill ride bound to stress you out and inject you with a good time. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2019
3.5/5 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Rendy Jones Might not be Waititi's strongest, but this vibrant and entertaining comedy ends up being both an enjoyable time and a great breakthrough performance by Roman Griffin Davis. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2019
4/5 A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Rendy Jones Has Heller pulling up in a toy train trolley telling you to get in 'cause we're going on a psychedelic odyssey with Mister Rogers. EDIT
