Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Sherin Nicole Kaiju and mecha and retina sizzling action, for people like me that's a dopamine high. EDIT

To All the Boys: Always and Forever (2021) Sherin Nicole To All the Boys: Always and Forever is a nice way to wrap up the trilogy-very sweet with lots of growing pains-I give it a 'aww, ain't that sweet' rating. Fans of the series are going to enjoy it. EDIT

Minari (2020) Sherin Nicole A very gentle film about very real hardships...a decidedly American story. EDIT

Malcolm & Marie (2021) Sherin Nicole Shot like a 1950s thriller, Malcolm & Marie is a romantic duel about the spaces between lovers and how they are widened or filled up, depending on the lovers themselves and how allergic they are to the truth. EDIT

Outside the Wire (2021) Sherin Nicole Mackie and Idris play well off each other. The characters are well defined, which makes you feel good about taking this frenetic journey with them. EDIT

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) Sherin Nicole Jingle Jangle is a dream come true. A gift of exuberant, original, Black joy - told through magic and music. And the fact we get it for Christmas rings all the bells. Hopefully it'll become a new holiday classic. EDIT

The Forty-Year-Old Version (2020) Sherin Nicole A very engaging coming-of-age for the second time around story. Contemplative and hilarious and awkward. 40YOV is all about seeing yourself from a new perspective and also dealing with the ways mourning someone changes your view of yourself. EDIT

Secret Society of Second Born Royals (2020) Sherin Nicole The plotting might be a little predictable but so what? The characters and world are well worth it--you won't have any disappointments in their superpowered super spy adventures. EDIT

The Devil All the Time (2020) Sherin Nicole Rife with decay and the suppurating evil that lies beneath the hearts of nefarious people--The Devil All the Time is dismal and yet faintly dazzling; somewhat like the hell on earth it portrays. EDIT

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) Sherin Nicole Lara Jean learns a lot of lessons--she changes and she grows--but she never becomes anything other than herself. It's always her discovering new sides of herself. That's so important for young women to see. EDIT

Waves (2019) Sherin Nicole What's most affecting about WAVES is how slice-of-life it is, and how deeply that knife can cut. EDIT

The Lion King (2019) Sherin Nicole Why don't I feel the same today as I did when I watched the original? Animation [is] much more expressive...this film is so deeply photorealistic the expressiveness of these characters is lost. EDIT

B+ Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Sherin Nicole Tom Holland encapsulates both Spider-Man and Peter Parker better than anyone I've seen. EDIT

B Always Be My Maybe (2019) Sherin Nicole There's a lot I want to say about Always Be My Maybe but it's mostly squealing and giggling in glee. Neither predictable or clichéd, instead ABMM hits all the tropes--which makes it an enjoyable character driven rom-com that I, personally, loved. EDIT

Booksmart (2019) Sherin Nicole Every generation has their teen movie but BOOKSMART does something different. Not only does it center two female leads who are empowered and supportive of each other, it is also nonstop realness that is true and pure and hilarious. EDIT

Little (2019) Sherin Nicole The true triumph of 'Little' is Marsai Martin, from creating and pitching this film, to executive producing it, to being the best thing about it. Martin is incredible. EDIT
