Rating Title/Year Author
In the Heights (2021) Alci Rengifo With great music and stunning skill, In the Heights reminds us that human desires, fears and joys come in all languages. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2021
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) Alci Rengifo The core of the movie is comprised of good horror scenes glued together in a bare plot. EDIT
Posted Jun 7, 2021
Cruella (2021) Alci Rengifo It keeps everything family-friendly and age-appropriate, but for the most part it makes a convincing, visually lively effort to give the chain-smoking terror a convincing origin tale. EDIT
Posted Jun 1, 2021
A Quiet Place Part II (2021) Alci Rengifo The world of the original is expanded, there's a bit more noise and the jump scares are just as effective... This chapter manages to still keep interest peaked. EDIT
Posted Jun 1, 2021
Wrath of Man (2021) Alci Rengifo Both Jason Statham and director Guy Ritchie find darkly intriguing ways to up their game with "Wrath of Man." EDIT
Posted May 10, 2021
About Endlessness (2019) Alci Rengifo There is a brilliant poetry to how these images all flow together, or when they take on a surreal intensity like a couple flying over a bombed out World War II city. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2021
Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (2021) Alci Rengifo "Without Remorse" is fine as a momentary escape, but the next adventure needs to open a thicker file. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2021
Stowaway (2021) Alci Rengifo The environment of the film is cold and distant, but the narrative packs a human punch in how direct its main idea is. EDIT
Posted Apr 26, 2021
Mortal Kombat (2021) Alci Rengifo This new movie is not necessarily terrible and the casting is great. It just has to aim higher when it obviously can. EDIT
Posted Apr 26, 2021
Concrete Cowboy (2020) Alci Rengifo As cinema "Concrete Cowboy" becomes a work of magnificent images. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2021
Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Alci Rengifo It's a full throttle action ride while at the same time celebrating how modern special effects should properly be used. EDIT
Posted Apr 1, 2021
Tina (2021) Alci Rengifo It celebrates the great artist while acknowledging that she is a woman who weathered many storms, the kind many viewers of this documentary are also enduring. EDIT
Posted Mar 30, 2021
Nobody (2021) Alci Rengifo Odenkirk sells it with wicked pleasure, making it worthwhile to follow him through every punch, kick, dive and shootout. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2021
City of Lies (2018) Alci Rengifo We just get two established actors hanging out for 112 minutes discussing the facts of the case. EDIT
Posted Mar 24, 2021
The Human Voice (2020) Alci Rengifo One of the world's great directors returns briefly to prove that a good storyteller can grab you any tools at their disposal, even during lockdown. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2021
Kid 90 (2021) Alci Rengifo Frye's documentary is an insider's account of a pre-#MeToo world where young stars were turned into hyper-sexualized products, while still grappling with the experiences of growing up. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2021
Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) Alci Rengifo "Raya and the Last Dragon" has the laughs and tear-jerker moments we've come to expect and love but tries for more and succeeds on a supremely fun scale. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2021
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell (2021) Alci Rengifo The worth of "Biggie" is that it might spark curiosity in a viewer just barely discovering his music - hopefully it will inspire them to seek more. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2021
The United States vs. Billie Holiday (2021) Alci Rengifo Holding all this together is Andra Day in one of the first great performances of the year. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2021
The Father (2020) Alci Rengifo n a brilliant performance Anthony Hopkins turns this Anthony into a personality empathetic and unnerving. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2021
Cherry (2021) Alci Rengifo This story has something to say, the movie just takes forever to get to the point and never gets there. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2021
Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry (2021) Alci Rengifo With its moments of visual exhilaration combined with a more simple autobiography, the documentary is insightful enough for the non-fan as well. That is, if you care and have the energy to carry on until the end credits. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2021
Silk Road (2021) Alci Rengifo With much promise but no delivery, "Silk Road" never gets high on its own supply. Instead it may just rank with those recent, terrible adaptations of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" as examples of libertarians making subjects for bad movies. EDIT
Posted Feb 23, 2021
Nomadland (2020) Alci Rengifo "Nomadland" is one of the best recent films to capture the very spirit of the times for those left behind by the economy. EDIT
Posted Feb 22, 2021
Saint Maud (2019) Alci Rengifo There are not many boo moments, although the few Glass pulls off are decent jump-inducers. What works is the superficial sense of atmosphere, made palpable by good actors. But looks can only go so far. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2021
Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) Alci Rengifo Makes no attempt to take itself too seriously or justify its existence beyond the sheer desire to bring out the laughs. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2021
A Glitch in the Matrix (2020) Alci Rengifo "A Glitch in the Matrix" mostly offers theories based on countless what if's. But it's an absorbing experience. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2021
Malcolm & Marie (2021) Alci Rengifo It never feels as if we are meant to sympathize with this couple, but merely gaze at them as conduits for whatever Levinson is grappling with in the writing. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2021
Palmer (2021) Alci Rengifo A testament to how charisma works, because Timberlake still generates enough of a sense of empathy within a very standard redemption drama. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2021
Supernova (2020) Alci Rengifo Dramas like "Supernova" bring us back down to reality with elegant storytelling. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2021
No Man's Land (2021) Alci Rengifo [A] small, vibrant drama, even when it gets overloaded with some needless plot baggage. EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2021
MLK/FBI (2020) Alci Rengifo A potent dual achievement: It covers the history of the FBI's years-long obsession with civil rights icon Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., while presenting a more human, even flawed, portrait of King than has ever been attempted before. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Outside the Wire (2021) Alci Rengifo The best one can do is warn that if you like expensive explosions and efficient camera crews filming shootouts, this one may hit the spot. Idris and Mackie make a good action movie pair convincingly inhabiting this battleground. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Death to 2020 (2020) Alci Rengifo "Death to 2020" may not be one of Brooker's greatest, but it still has worthy moments that poke bitter fun at all the bitter events we're now going to reflect on. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2020
Fatale (2020) Alci Rengifo It's a well-shot bit of glossy filmmaking where the director feels too timid to deliver on the melodrama. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
The Midnight Sky (2020) Alci Rengifo As a first try at familiar sci-fi, the ideas are certainly there. The approach, however, doesn't know where to land. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Soul (2020) Alci Rengifo "Soul" is a great time for younger viewers but for adults it touches on that sense of feeling the frustration of our big dreams. This is a rare animated film in how it tackles that subject. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Alci Rengifo Much of it is exhaustive, some of it clunky, with enough sections that remain escapist fun. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Promising Young Woman (2020) Alci Rengifo Keenly written, directed and performed by two immensely talented actors, "Promising Young Woman" does not limit vision and intelligence. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Greenland (2020) Alci Rengifo It's a surprisingly entertaining popcorn ride. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2020
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) Alci Rengifo Some artists leave us too soon, yet are granted by fate a final bow worthy of their tremendous gifts. Chadwick Boseman is given such an opportunity... And at the center of it all is Viola Davis as a titanic Ma Rainey. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2020
Wild Mountain Thyme (2020) Alci Rengifo A strong cast is repeating clichés, enjoying their time together more than the material itself. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2020
All My Life (2020) Alci Rengifo The screenplay by Todd Rosenberg transforms into a moving parable about how degrees and perfect planning can suddenly mean very little when faced with cruel reality. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2020
Sunset (2018) Alci Rengifo "Sunset" has an impressive sense of place, and while it is about the past, it is easy to suspect its tone is more than apt for today, as uncertainty again reigns. EDIT
Posted Dec 1, 2020
Uncle Frank (2020) Alci Rengifo "Uncle Frank" has Alan Ball's distinct voice, returning to the themes that obsess him. But they are relevant themes, both in what they say about the past in how they remind us we still live in a world or prejudices. EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2020
The Croods: A New Age (2020) Alci Rengifo This is an enjoyable romp for its sheer, hallucinatory visual cheer and simple messaging. EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2020
The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020) Alci Rengifo The screenplay by Columbus and Matt Lieberman still defies much logic, but at least it is shot with the same kind of visual grandiosity Columbus brought to "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2020
Zappa (2020) Alci Rengifo With energetic editing and a seamless flow of footage, Winter creates such a detailed portrait of Zappa that there should never be a need for a biopic drama of the man. Although you wonder if Zappa would even want that. EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2020
Between the World and Me (2020) Alci Rengifo Turned into cinema, the effect is absorbing. EDIT
Posted Nov 23, 2020
Run (2020) Alci Rengifo Paulson's performance is what helps make this a wicked enjoyment in the tradition of classic paranoid thrillers. EDIT
