7/10 Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Rachel Wagner This new 'Sonic the Hedgehog' is a charming throwback to the family films of the 90s that the whole family will enjoy. EDIT

8.5/10 Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made (2020) Rachel Wagner I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed 'Timmy Failure: Mistakes were Made'. The script, performances, themes, all worked for me. EDIT

Togo (2019) Rachel Wagner A delightful throwback to films like 'White Fang' and 'Iron Will'. I really enjoyed it! EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2020
4/10 Downhill (2020) Rachel Wagner Downhill is one of those comedies that mistakes characters fighting a lot for jokes. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
6/10 Wendy (2020) Rachel Wagner I think the good outweighs the bad, so give Wendy a shot EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
7/10 Tesla (2020) Rachel Wagner If you are looking for something new and creative check out Tesla. EDIT

6.5/10 () Rachel Wagner Cheesy, full of melodrama but the chemistry between the couple and overall quality of filmmaking carries the day making an enjoyable time at the cinema. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2020
9/10 () Rachel Wagner It becomes a kind of 'cinematic therapy' for both of them. It really worked for me! EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2020
3/10 The Glorias (2020) Rachel Wagner It has so many ideas and covers way too much to absorb everything or give it all the gravitas it should have. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2020
8.5/10 Nine Days (2020) Rachel Wagner It definitely won't be for everyone but it's a weird little movie with a spiritual core to it I connected with. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2020
8.5/10 The Truffle Hunters (2020) Rachel Wagner The Truffle Hunters comes in at 84 minutes so it doesn't outstay its welcome and is a real gem of the festival. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2020
3/10 Spaceship Earth (2020) Rachel Wagner The story is intriguing and weird but unfortunately told with all the energy of a dry boring lecture EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2020
7/10 Some Kind of Heaven (2020) Rachel Wagner In a weird way the Villages becomes a type of 'keep you busy' prison and... that's a cynical message but not one without a dose of truth to it. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2020
1/10 Horse Girl (2020) Rachel Wagner I'm not sure what great lesson we are supposed to take from Sarah but the audience kept laughing at her antics and I had no idea why. I just kept cringing EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2020
8.5/10 Palm Springs (1936) Rachel Wagner At its core it's actually quite sweet and funny EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2020
7.5/10 Charm City Kings (2020) Rachel Wagner I don't know if I 100% buy the ending for the characters but whatever. It's still a strong film EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2020
8/10 () Rachel Wagner A sobering look at the impact of the metoo movement on black women EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2020
8/10 Rebuilding Paradise (2020) Rachel Wagner The whole movie is compelling and moving but I was especially impressed by the first 20 minutes that get you right in the fire EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
2/10 Kajillionaire (2020) Rachel Wagner An insufferable, obnoxious, indie slog. I was bored and anxious for it to finish and it seemed like it never would EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
8.5/10 Save Yourselves! (2020) Rachel Wagner It's not only a very funny look at modern millennial life but also a sweet romance EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
5.5/10 Be Water (2020) Rachel Wagner Be Water is not going to change your life but if you like interesting biographies you'll enjoy it. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2020
4/10 () Rachel Wagner I honestly learned much more about all the kids in the q&a after than I did from the documentary...This shouldn't be the case in a good documentary. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2020
4/10 () Rachel Wagner The whole ending felt cheap and unearned and hurt the good moments which had come before it. It's a real shame because it had a lot of potential. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2020
4.5/10 Worth (2019) Rachel Wagner I just don't think the script in Worth justifies a cinematic journey. The main thrust of the story is helping companies to not get sued and providing people money so they don't sue. It's not enough umph. EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2020
7/10 Ironbark (2020) Rachel Wagner Towards the end it loses control of tone and becomes a more grueling experience but overall it's a film that entertains on lots of levels. EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2020
7/10 Bad Hair (2020) Rachel Wagner I thought it was funny, wacky, campy and scary enough to be fun EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2020
8/10 Crip Camp (2020) Rachel Wagner They did a good job introducing us to important figures of the movement who had all been to the camp as teenagers EDIT
Posted Jan 25, 2020
5.5/10 Taylor Swift: Miss Americana (2020) Rachel Wagner If you want a music documentary with lots of singing and behind the scenes looks at Taylor than this is perfectly serviceable. It does it's job and fans will be happy with it. EDIT
Posted Jan 25, 2020
6/10 Quezon's Game (2020) Rachel Wagner The film has problems but overall it's a moving piece of history I was unfamiliar with. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2020
Joker (2019) Rachel Wagner His story wasn't interesting to me because there never was a valid option for him to chose a different path. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2020
4.5/10 Underwater (2020) Rachel Wagner There's definitely a feeling of 'we've been there done all this before and better'. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2020
7/10 Marriage Story (2019) Rachel Wagner It is good, just not a favorite or something I will ever watch again. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2020
4.5/10 Like a Boss (2020) Rachel Wagner It is not surprising this film is written and directed by men because the complexities of the female experience in business as presented are so reductive and cringe-worthy EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2020
9/10 Tokyo Godfathers (2003) Rachel Wagner There are a lot of reasons why this film works, but I think at the heart is an emotional resonance we connect with EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
5/10 Cats (2019) Rachel Wagner This version is fun enough for a musical theater junkie. The songs are well done and the dancing is impressive. All the actors are trying their hardest and the visual style is unique. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2019
7/10 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Rachel Wagner It's a flawed, messy film but it recaptures the spirit of adventure I love in Star Wars EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2019
6/10 Spies in Disguise (2019) Rachel Wagner Spies in Disguise is a perfectly serviceable action movie for kids EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2019
1/10 Black Christmas (2019) Rachel Wagner Black Christmas fails because of its sloppy script, poor production values and total lack of scares. EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2019
6/10 Bombshell (2019) Rachel Wagner Really all the casting is spot on. They all look so close to the original people! I was also drawn into the story of Bombshell EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019
2/10 Playmobil: The Movie (2019) Rachel Wagner It feels like they put 1000 ideas into a bucket and picked one out each week to create the script EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019
4.5/10 Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Rachel Wagner There's nothing new here. It's like they got to old people jokes and gave up EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019
9/10 1917 (2019) Rachel Wagner I was rooting for the characters and riveted by every turn in their journey EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019
6/10 The Good Liar (2019) Rachel Wagner This movie requires a major suspension of belief as each reveal gets more ridiculous than the next. But if you can take that leap there's fun to be had EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019
7/10 Little Women (2019) Rachel Wagner I enjoyed Little Women. I hope it will inspire a new crop of young girls to read the book and hopefully appreciate their families more each day. EDIT
Posted Dec 5, 2019
8/10 Waves (2019) Rachel Wagner Waves is not only a story about a broken family but how they learn to forgive each other and heal from their wounds. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2019
4/10 The Irishman (2019) Rachel Wagner In the end, the pacing is too ponderous and self-indulgent, the characters are too stagnant, and the story lacks an emotional punch EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2019
6/10 A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Rachel Wagner Tom Hanks is perfectly cast as Mr Rogers and his scenes carry the film EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2019
8/10 Knives Out (2019) Rachel Wagner The characters are kooky and the twists surprising, which makes for a really good time at the theater. EDIT
Posted Nov 10, 2019
9/10 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Rachel Wagner The story is interesting, the acting is great, script is well done and the racing scenes work EDIT
