Rating Title/Year Author
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 Mar 22, 2019
Us (2019) Alci Rengifo "Us" is a worthy heir to a great and fun tradition in cinema, where the scares are very bloody, but it's what they're actually about that counts. Fair warning, do not go see this movie if you absolutely do not like to have your heart rate quicken. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2019
The Aftermath (2019) Alci Rengifo Even with the last world war as its backdrop, this story is one cold affair. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2019
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Alci Rengifo This third installment succeeds in turning the saga into a great coming of age tale. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2019
Climax (2018) Alci Rengifo You simply cannot look away, because Noé is a true provocateur in a film landscape where that is a dying species. His vision is bleak, but not static, dark yet alive. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2019
Run the Race (2018) Alci Rengifo It's a sincere work, even if we remain unconverted. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2019
Greta (2018) Alci Rengifo "Greta" is the rare old-school thriller done well by an exceptional director. It envelopes the viewer in dreadful atmosphere, made even more effective by a great cast. It's the kind of movie you walk out from watching over your shoulder. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2019
Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Alci Rengifo It can't be said "Happy Death Day 2U" is a great movie, but it's better than it should be. It knows it's a gag and basks in its sense of fun. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Alci Rengifo "Alita: Battle Angel" clocks in at 2 hours and 22 minutes, yet feels devoid of story. It has a lot of big vistas, a couple of fun action scenes, but is as cold as a robot's touch. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2019
Everybody Knows (2018) Alci Rengifo Purely as a thriller, "Everybody Knows" engages the viewer with an intelligence and craft sorely missed in most American factory product. It takes us to a specific place, with specific personalities. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Alci Rengifo Visually it's a thrilling buffet full of endless references to other films as well. You can just sit back and drink in what's on screen EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Miss Bala (2019) Alci Rengifo Many rounds are spent in this film, a few cars explode, and Gina Rodriguez becomes a version of The Punisher by the end, which feels like a set-up for an even more absurd sequel. Do yourself a favor and stream or rent the original. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2019
Shooting the Mafia (2019) Alci Rengifo While "To the Stars" can make you feel that you know everyone in Wakita intimately, it beautifully makes the point that there are always some things about them that you can't. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2019
Glass (2019) Alci Rengifo "Glass" suffers from the kind of wrap up syndrome that affects most trilogies. It wants to find enough space to cram in everything fans can recognize from the last two movies while attempting to mold some kind of dramatically fulfilling, coherent story. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2019
The Last Laugh (2019) Alci Rengifo With Chase and Dreyfuss's classic talents, this could have been quite the romp. Instead we get poor jokes delivered by two masters. It's too less of a good thing. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2019
Escape Room (2019) Alci Rengifo "Escape Room" ends with the obvious signs of a sequel being planned. Where else it could go is hard to guess, but for now this concept is trapped by its own tricks, inspiring us to prefer escaping to a better distraction. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
On the Basis of Sex (2018) Alci Rengifo The performances make the material work because the talent is so high it elevates even the script's romanticized tone to something more engaging. EDIT
Posted Dec 26, 2018
Welcome to Marwen (2018) Alci Rengifo "Welcome to Marwen" is a great-looking mess. It demands you practice a yin-yang where we are expected to laugh and cheer at the Nazi-killing CGI dolls, then feel immense sorrow or pathos for a traumatized Hogancamp. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2018
Aquaman (2018) Alci Rengifo With the world the way it's going, it's not surprising people would rather watch a buffed guy swim with dolphins. But with so many resources spent on it, this is one underwater adventure that dries out fast. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2018
Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now (2003) Alci Rengifo Most of the time "Relatable" has the feeling of catching up with DeGeneres. She's been through some lows, and is now high on the perch of success, but we have a good time listening to her share all about it. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2018
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Alci Rengifo This is a web worth getting caught up with. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
The Mule (2018) Alci Rengifo "The Mule" treats its true story with just enough humor to capture the oddity of it all then arrives at a surprisingly moving climax. Life always trumps fiction. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Alci Rengifo There is a magnificent command of tone and language in this film. Jenkins delivers expanded scenes where we get to know everyone and dialogue reveals hidden conflicts or stories. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
Vox Lux (2018) Alci Rengifo "Vox Lux" has the makings of a great movie, but it ends as just a very good one. Corbet is still finding his voice, the first act goes on too long and Portman's Celeste is the only character that feels truly fleshed out. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2018
The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Alci Rengifo This is also the kind of horror film where you scratch your head often, questioning some of its supernatural logic. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2018
The Christmas Chronicles (2018) Alci Rengifo A lot of "The Christmas Chronicles" feels like a first draft that was slapped together when executives figured they needed some kind of holiday movie to stream. EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2018
The Favourite (2018) Alci Rengifo Lanthimos has widened his palette, while keeping his unique, strange and acidic humor intact. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
Creed II (2018) Alci Rengifo If what you seek is a good "Rocky" movie then "Creed II" delivers the goods. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2018
Roma (2018) Alci Rengifo This is cinema that breathes with life and all its losses and discoveries. It is as enrapturing as a good story, and when it's over you think about it in the way you remember a dream. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2018
Widows (2018) Alci Rengifo "Widows" has such rich layers that it's easy to forget to mention the more traditional, enjoyable thriller elements. McQueen has fun with the details of planning a robbery as the women train on the details. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2018
The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Alci Rengifo Those who like slick exercises in action filmmaking might enjoy "The Girl in the Spider's Web" as just that. The twists are right out of the spy handbook, with more than one double cross being inevitable. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2018
Dr. Seuss' The Grinch (2018) Alci Rengifo The Grinch" succeeds in capturing Dr. Seuss' world via digital animation, but as a holiday revival of a classic story it may succeed in inspiring viewers to seek the original 1966 version. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2018
The Front Runner (2018) Alci Rengifo Groundbreaking it is not, but it is always a fascinating train wreck to behold. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2018
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Alci Rengifo "Bohemian Rhapsody" is most enjoyable during its grand concert scenes where Malek does an uncanny job capturing the style and mannerisms of the great vocalist. The raw energy, burning charisma and general likeability of Mercury come across brilliantly. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
Halloween (2018) Alci Rengifo Director David Gordon Green has made a strong thriller using a villain engrained in our pop culture consciousness while updating the premise, and winking constantly at its predecessor. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2018
Mid90s (2018) Alci Rengifo Hill's screenplay does something interesting with the dialogue. It's engaging yet also revealing in how it captures the way people talked in a more pre-politically correct moment. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2018
First Man (2018) Alci Rengifo The most special thing about this story is that it is not science fiction, it was real, it happened, and it asks us to dream again. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2018
The Hate U Give (2018) Alci Rengifo A great young adult drama, unique in how it deals with a specific social issue. It is challenging, as it should be, because cinema should deal with what's happening in the world. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2018
The Old Man & the Gun (2018) Alci Rengifo For an actor of Redford's caliber to retire by playing an outlaw is fitting, because being an artist is almost the same fate. No matter where life takes you, that fire in the gut remains. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2018
Blaze (2018) Alci Rengifo With "Blaze" Hawke has taken one of country's underground misfits and turned him into a figure of pathos. His Blaze Foley is endearing, because everyone who stumbles can see a little bit of themselves in him. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2018
White Boy Rick (2018) Alci Rengifo It's that rare crime film where the characters become interesting because there's nothing exaggerated about them. They are poor souls trying to make a buck in a cruel economy, which is a reality relatable even to those not living the life of the hustle. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2018
Life Itself (2018) Alci Rengifo Life itself can be a mess, this movie didn't have to be. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2018
Kusama: Infinity (2018) Alci Rengifo Kusama: Infinity is an endlessly fascinating documentary about an inspiring life, but it is also a universal story. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Peppermint (2018) Alci Rengifo Peppermint could have been at least good trash, but it decides to be an awkwardly-paced exercise in shallowness. If you want a high body count, step right in, but brains behind the brawns are sorely missed. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
The Little Stranger (2018) Alci Rengifo What we get are well-composed shots and fine actors. The ghost, however, is as lost as the film's ambitions. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
The Equalizer 2 (2018) Alci Rengifo The early action scenes on their own have a classic, macho rhythm. But you can't just write a tough guy, you need to give him a place to go. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2018
Three Identical Strangers (2018) Alci Rengifo Wardle has pulled off an interesting feat. He has told these brothers' story, raised infuriating questions about the abuses of science, and by the end challenges the viewer to wonder about what makes us all tick. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2018
Den of Thieves (2018) Alci Rengifo A great heist movie is riveting, a good one entertaining, this one is well-shot, but the story gets lost somewhere along the way. It's like blasting open the shiny bank vault and finding nothing there. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2018
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Alci Rengifo Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is one of those great films that never strikes a false note. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2018
Skyscraper (2018) Alci Rengifo Skyscraper is so preposterous it avoids becoming boring, for the wrong reasons of course. It scales the great heights of goofiness. EDIT
