Posted Jun 18, 2020
Artemis Fowl (2020) Alci Rengifo Artemis Fowl suffers from franchise genesis syndrome where the first movie is a lot of half-formed ideas that one expects will play out in later installments. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2020

Posted Jun 11, 2020
The Last Days of American Crime (2020) Alci Rengifo The Last Days of American Crime is not about crime or America, or about anything. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2020
Parkland Rising (2019) Alci Rengifo This is a stirring hour and a half. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2020
The Painter and the Thief (2020) Alci Rengifo Director Benjamin Ree presents an astounding portrait of forgiveness and empathy. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2020
SCOOB! (2020) Alci Rengifo With its splashes of color and breakneck action it will easily distract for an hour and a half. But it offers little mystery or better humor to snack on. EDIT
Posted May 19, 2020
Capone (2020) Alci Rengifo Stubbornly "Capone" remains a half-formed movie until the end, offering brief flashes of a wider, perturbing life. If anything it may inspire some viewers to seek a good biography to read on the gangster. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2020
Spaceship Earth (2020) Alci Rengifo It tells a true story so intriguing, strange and unique that it's a stroke of luck it took place when the events in question could be chronicled so well. EDIT
Posted May 11, 2020
Becoming (2020) Alci Rengifo "Becoming" lets us get close to Michelle Obama while keeping its distance. It is endlessly fascinating as a chronicle of life on the road for someone who helped leave a mark on recent American history. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2020
Arkansas (2020) Alci Rengifo As a talent reel "Arkansas" displays skilled people who know how to assemble a movie. The question is what's the point? EDIT
Posted May 6, 2020
The Half of It (2020) Alci Rengifo This is a film that stands out as a tribute to unrequited love, but instead of simply tugging at your heart strings, it hopefully teaches us some more valuable lessons. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2020
A Secret Love (2020) Alci Rengifo "A Secret Love," with its nostalgic tone flows like a recap of lives. To [Chris] Bolan's credit it's full of both admiration but honesty as well. EDIT
Posted Apr 30, 2020
True History of the Kelly Gang (2019) Alci Rengifo "True History of the Kelly Gang" is wildly revisionist, full of unforgettable images and eloquence in its savage frames. EDIT
Posted Apr 27, 2020
Bad Education (2019) Alci Rengifo [Cory] Finley proves again he is a director who masterfully chronicles a specific place and sector of American society. There is not a single false note in this movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 27, 2020
Extraction (2020) Alci Rengifo Everyone in this film is reduced to quick, shallow clichés. EDIT
Posted Apr 27, 2020

Posted Apr 20, 2020

Posted Apr 20, 2020
Hvítur, Hvítur Dagur (2019) Alci Rengifo This is a real human tragedy, told with meticulous acting and a screenplay where words and conversations are not wasted. EDIT
Posted Apr 20, 2020
The Other Lamb (2019) Alci Rengifo It's almost a stream of consciousness experiment that works for the first five minutes, made by a filmmaker who has an obvious love for images. But it's an easy slip between having faith in your visuals and becoming merely pretentious. EDIT
Posted Apr 6, 2020
Uncorked (2020) Alci Rengifo "Uncorked" is enjoyable because of its relatable simplicity. Director Prentice Penny writes a screenplay undoubtedly taken from his and countless others' experiences in honing a craft while convincing others of your vision. EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2020
Blow the Man Down (2019) Alci Rengifo "Blow the Man Down" keeps few secrets hidden. Not even half an hour in and we know who the killers are, where the bodies are hidden and who has to stay quiet. Its charm is in how it lays out the town and its inhabitants. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2020
The Hunt (2020) Alci Rengifo It must be said that those viewers seeking pure violence, firearms and repetitive gore will find what they're looking for in "The Hunt." But beneath its pile of guts is a missed opportunity. EDIT
Posted Mar 16, 2020
Bloodshot (2020) Alci Rengifo "Bloodshot" follows a standard formula where what matters is the execution. Good schlock is preferable to senseless gore or pretentious bores. It's cliché to say you get your money's worth but this one delivers as it promises. EDIT
Posted Mar 16, 2020
The Burnt Orange Heresy (2019) Alci Rengifo It has a dark elegance and witty charm while celebrating, in an offbeat way, both the critic and art itself. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2020
Hope Gap (2019) Alci Rengifo With "Hope Gap," [William] Nicholson delivers an elegant, dramatically engaging portrait of how marriages can break down even near twilight. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2020
The Way Back (2020) Alci Rengifo It's not your typical sports movie full of larger than life heroes and tension-inducing countdowns. Instead what we get is a character study that feels so personal we can forgive its weaker elements. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2020
Onward (2020) Alci Rengifo "Onward" doesn't aspire to be the kind of grandiose animated spectacle of typical Pixar marquee titles like the "Toy Story" movies. This gives it a fresh feistiness and freedom. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2020
All the Bright Places (2020) Alci Rengifo While it features some of the airy appeal to the emotions common to the genre, it's also not a rehash. This is a reflective, heartfelt film about being a teenager while grappling with traumatic experiences. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2020
The Invisible Man (2020) Alci Rengifo It's a skillfully done combination of good genre writing and inventive special effects. EDIT
Posted Feb 28, 2020

Posted Feb 24, 2020
Brahms: The Boy II (2020) Alci Rengifo Somehow "Brahms: The Boy II" manages to at least look better than its predecessor. Everything else works as needlessly as the lengthy title. EDIT
Posted Feb 21, 2020
Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Alci Rengifo The voice acting is on point for the speedy little blue guy and Jim Carrey brings his trademark mania, yet it's all at the service of a nonexistent plot. EDIT
Posted Feb 18, 2020
Ordinary Love (2019) Alci Rengifo This is actual devotion without compromises or cheap melodrama. It's a film that understands how standing next to someone in the most adverse moments is possibly the greatest act of love. EDIT
Posted Feb 18, 2020
Blumhouse's Fantasy Island (2020) Alci Rengifo While the characters can be interesting representations of the ideas the film wants to explore, by the end they get stuck in action scenes that feel recycled from countless other low grade thrillers. EDIT
Posted Feb 18, 2020
To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (2020) Alci Rengifo Directing is Michael Fimognari, who was the cinematographer in the original film and is adept at making this material feel lively. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2020
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Alci Rengifo It's a wickedly fun premise and the film's colorful zaniness makes up for its slim story. EDIT
Posted Feb 10, 2020
The Gentlemen (2020) Alci Rengifo Where "The Gentlemen" begins to stumble is in its maze of a plot, which can get so convoluted, and so crammed with names that simply following what's supposed to be happening becomes a chore. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2020
Troop Zero (2019) Alci Rengifo Some films simply burst with a lovable energy. "Troop Zero" is one of those movies. EDIT
