3/4 Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Though the cast is a decade older, "Zombieland: Double Tap" is no less funny. Thanks to some new additions, it's even more riotous. EDIT

1/4 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Johnny Oleksinski While the first film was, like "Wicked," an alternate view of a classic good-versus-evil tale, its sequel is a one-note, moralistic sledgehammer with no payoff. EDIT

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Michael Starr For "Breaking Bad" fans jonesing for something, anything, connected to the chronological time frame of their beloved series, it should do the trick. EDIT

1.5/4 The Addams Family (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Nothing more than toddler fodder. It's so sweet, the Addams clan would burn it in a bonfire. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
2/4 Little Monsters (2019) Sara Stewart Forsythe nails a handful of funny juxtapositions, but too often leans into mean-spirited and tired yuks. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
3/4 The King (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Chalamet is powerful in his first authoritative role. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
2/4 Gemini Man (2019) Reed Tucker The idea of facing off against your younger self is an intriguing one, but the movie never does anything particularly interesting with it. EDIT

3.5/4 Uncut Gems (2019) Johnny Oleksinski In 2019, the Waterboy has become a man. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
3.5/4 Dolor y gloria (2019) Johnny Oleksinski In a way, casting Banderas is yet another special piece of Almodóvar's biography he's added into this highly personal film. Just don't take the film literally. EDIT

Prayers for Bobby (2009) New York Post Staff The cast is just perfect -- not a missed beat. And Weaver? She puts in a performance that is right up there with her best work. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
2/4 Lucy in the Sky (2019) Sara Stewart Trying for humane drama but landing somewhere nearer basic-cable shtick, it asks a bowl-cutted Portman to deliver accusatory lines like, "I read your emails while you were in space!" with a straight face. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
4/4 The Irishman (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Well, chug a 5-hour Energy, because the terrific "Irishman" deserves your full, un-fatigued attention. EDIT

1/4 The Laundromat (2019) Johnny Oleksinski I've just watched a 96-minute op-ed. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2019
3/4 Sister Aimee (2019) Sara Stewart "Sister Aimee" is a true original - apparently, just like its namesake. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2019
3/4 Abominable (2019) Sara Stewart Although the movie's conclusion may be foregone, it's still enjoyable getting there. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2019
1.5/4 Zeroville (2019) Sara Stewart Franco seems to be aiming for comedy, but there are few laughs to be had. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
1/4 Corporate Animals (2019) Johnny Oleksinski The worst episode of "The Office" ever. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
1/4 Running With the Devil (2019) Sara Stewart A tiresome parade of gory and sexist cliches that are, frankly, insulting to a cast that includes Laurence Fishburne, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg, Leslie Bibb and Clifton Collins Jr. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
2/4 Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Johnny Oleksinski "Rambo: Last Blood" features what's easily the most violent movie scene of the year. It's awesome. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
2/4 Where's My Roy Cohn? (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Roy Cohn was way more entertaining than the new documentary about Roy Cohn. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2019
3.5/4 Ad Astra (2019) Johnny Oleksinski When somebody asks Brad Pitt what he did this summer, here's how he should respond: "Resuscitated my acting career!" EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2019
Motherless Brooklyn (2019) Sara Stewart At almost two and a half hours, "Motherless Brooklyn" could stand to be tightened up, but it's an engaging take on a genre that can fall easily into hacky cliches. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2019
Color Out of Space (2010) Sara Stewart Full-bore, glorious B-movie Cage: Cranked up to 11, spattered with gore and bellowing about alpacas. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2019
Seberg (2019) Sara Stewart A bland period piece with an irritating lack of focus. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
() Sara Stewart Orner's documentary takes some satisfying turns. EDIT

3/4 Judy (2019) Sara Stewart No matter how well you know "Over the Rainbow," you may never hear it as heartbreakingly performed as Zellweger sings it here. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
1/4 The Goldfinch (2019) Johnny Oleksinski In simultaneously successfully shoving in every little thing and thus ruining the book, director John Crowley and writer Peter Straughan have killed two birds with one stone. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
Camp Rock (2008) Austin Smith It's really a great movie, like a modern-day version of an old Judy Garland-Mickey Rooney picture in which the kids put on a show that improves the lives of all who see it. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
Harriet (2019) Sara Stewart What better entry point for learning about one of America's real-life superheroes than this bravura performance from Erivo? EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
Ford v Ferrari (2019) Sara Stewart I imagine many viewers will be more than happy to be whisked away by "Ford v Ferrari." EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2019
2.5/4 Joker (2019) Sara Stewart ...it's certainly worth seeing for Phoenix, whose mournful eyes and choking laugh perfectly embody his character's lifelong query: "Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?" EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2019
4/4 The Lighthouse (2019) Sara Stewart By turns funny, sinister, haunting, historically fascinating and mythical, "The Lighthouse" is one of the best films of the year. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2019
1.5/4 Downton Abbey (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Two thumbs "Downton." EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2019
4/4 Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Sara Stewart "Dolemite Is My Name" kicks off the Eddie Murphy comeback that's been a very long time coming. And this comic biopic is a blast from start to finish. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2019
Just Mercy (2019) Sara Stewart This is Jordan and Foxx's show, and the duo has terrific acting chemistry - even when "Just Mercy" stretches on a bit longer than maybe it needs to. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2019
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Sara Stewart But this is no straightforward biopic, and for that we can probably be glad. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2019
Hustlers (2019) Sara Stewart There is nobody to root for here, an issue that leads to checking one's watch midway through the show. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2019
3/4 It: Chapter Two (2019) Johnny Oleksinski An immensely satisfying, often thrilling adventure film. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
1/4 The Fanatic (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Travolta, earnest but ridiculous, spends his time furiously rocking back and forth and bellowing to the heavens. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2019
1.5/4 Official Secrets (2019) Johnny Oleksinski So much of Gregory Bernstein, Sara Bernstein and Gavin Hood's screenplay arrives with a thud that it might've been written with clenched fists. Knightley's overwrought performance doesn't help either. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2019
2/4 Jacob's Ladder (2019) Sara Stewart As the plot moves forward, it loses interest in the metaphysical torment that made the original so gripping. EDIT
Posted Aug 22, 2019
3.5/4 Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Johnny Oleksinski "Brittany" is a comedy so relatable for young New Yorkers, you might need to take a walk after watching it. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
2/4 Driven (2018) Johnny Oleksinski "Driven" is a lot like a DeLorean: Looks great, but moves slow - if it even moves at all. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
3/4 Good Boys (2019) Sara Stewart The filmmakers have their finger on the pulse of the exquisite awkwardness of the tween years. EDIT

1/4 Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Johnny Oleksinski Richard Linklater directed this? EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
0/4 The Kitchen (2019) Johnny Oleksinski "The Kitchen" would seem to be a belabored exercise in third-wave feminism. But if what that movement has come to is "See? Women can be murderous thugs, too!," then it's time for some re-branding. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2019
3/4 () Sara Stewart No one could make the argument that new ground is really being broken here. Still, comedy often functions as comfort food, and it's good fun to see this collective railing against it all. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2019
3/4 Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Sara Stewart Disney, take note: This is how to do a winning live-action update of a cartoon. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2019
2.5/4 () Sara Stewart It's a testament to John Leguizamo's storytelling chops, and general spazzy likability, that his new one-man show on HBO is so much fun despite feeling overly familiar. EDIT
