2/4 The French Dispatch (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Nobody gives a memorable performance. EDIT

3.5/4 L.A. Confidential (1997) Michael Medved Director Curtis Hanson has done good work before (The River Wild and the underappreciated The Bedroom Window), but now he wins new recognition as a major stylist. EDIT

1/4 The Last Duel (2021) Johnny Oleksinski It's been 24 years since Matt Damon and Ben Affleck last collaborated on a movie script. Let's make it 100 next time! EDIT

2.5/4 Halloween Kills (2021) Sara Stewart "Halloween Kills" knows what you're here for. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2021
3.5/4 Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Well, it's taken 36 years and six presidencies, but with "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" fans finally have an unembarrassing sequel to love. EDIT

1/4 Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Sitting at "Venom: Let There Be Carnage," you quietly ask yourself, "What have I done wrong? Is God punishing me?" EDIT

3/4 The Many Saints of Newark (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Woke up this morning, watched myself a film. EDIT
Posted Sep 23, 2021
3/4 Cry Macho (2021) Sara Stewart Living at 91 never looked so good. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2021
2.5/4 Prisoners of the Ghostland (2021) Sara Stewart If you're planning to enjoy this film, don't ask too many questions. Just embrace the spectacle, a mishmash of genres and a riot of color. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2021
2.5/4 Everybody's Talking About Jamie (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The undeniably sweet film, based on the wonderful West End musical, fixes some of the (much better) show's flaws, but loses its humor and energy while it wallows in sadness. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2021
Spencer (2021) Johnny Oleksinski [It] gets to the meat of what was tormenting the People's Princess better than any simple historical retelling ever could. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2021
The Starling (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Quoth the raven: "Nevermore!" EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2021
Last Night in Soho (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Just when you've had enough of something, or someone, a new energy comes bursting in. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2021
The Guilty (2021) Johnny Oleksinski "The Guilty" is never boring, but halfway through you've just had enough of it. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2021
Dune (2021) Johnny Oleksinski This movie is the first of two planned parts. Please, dear God, make the second one. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2021
The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The century-old story feels fresh. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2021
1/4 The Voyeurs (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Gussied-up smut. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2021
Dear Evan Hansen (2021) Johnny Oleksinski [Platt] tones down his stage performance just enough for the big screen, but retains Evan's quick sense of humor and lovable nature, despite his misdeeds. He pummels you in the end. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2021
2/4 Worth (2020) Johnny Oleksinski The writing in Max Borenstein's script continuously eschews subtlety for static melodrama. You hear the same lines repeated ad nauseam, only slightly tweaked and louder and angrier every time. EDIT
Posted Sep 2, 2021
3.5/4 Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) Johnny Oleksinski It's fresh, it's alive, it's not the same old Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are also awesome dragons. EDIT
Posted Sep 2, 2021
1/4 Cinderella (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Writer-director Kay Cannon has shattered Cinderella's glass slipper. And we the audience are forced to walk across the shards barefoot. EDIT
Posted Sep 2, 2021
2/4 Vacation Friends (2021) Johnny Oleksinski As the film continues, every gag stays on same level and thus becomes less and less satisfying. Not even a breaded cheese enthusiast such as myself wants 300 mozzarella sticks. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2021
3/4 Candyman (2021) Johnny Oleksinski There's no mistaking what "Candyman" is trying to say. Even so, the loud messages don't overwhelm the plot or characters because director DaCosta, in only her second feature, has made such an exciting, fun movie. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2021
2/4 Reminiscence (2021) Johnny Oleksinski A burdensome slog. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2021
2/4 The Protégé (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The film's bright spot is Q, who has really become a capable, confident, sexy action star. I can't wait to see her in another action movie that is not this one. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2021
3.5/4 CODA (2021) Johnny Oleksinski If you're in the market for a heart-warmer, look no further. EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2021
2/4 Respect (2021) Johnny Oleksinski You've seen "Respect" before. EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2021
4/4 Free Guy (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Studios, please make more movies like "Free Guy." EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2021
3/4 Vivo (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Mindbogglingly, most of Miranda's endless string of projects are good-to-great, not vanilla corporate garbage, and the sweet new animated movie "Vivo" is no exception. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2021
3/4 The Suicide Squad (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The Squad is dead! Long live The Squad! EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2021
2/4 Jungle Cruise (2021) Johnny Oleksinski To bulk up the thin material, the film steals from countless other, better adventure movies to create an altogether less satisfying combo plate that costs $30 to rent on Disney+. EDIT
Posted Jul 30, 2021
3/4 Stillwater (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Deftly explores... the cultural barriers that prevent us from achieving basic goals, such as solving a murder, and connecting with people unlike ourselves. EDIT
Posted Jul 30, 2021
3/4 The Green Knight (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The film seizes Lowery's best skills as a director: his eye for innocence and nature and how he uses slowness to deepen a story. EDIT
Posted Jul 30, 2021
2/4 Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The fights, taken on their own, are occasionally OK, but not enough to lift this joke-and-fun-free slog. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2021
3/4 Old (2021) Johnny Oleksinski I was glued to every single second of it. EDIT
Posted Jul 22, 2021
1/4 Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021) Johnny Oleksinski In the pantheon of misguided sequels and reboots, "A New Legacy" is right up there with "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" and "Little Fockers." EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2021
1/4 Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The best thing about the "Escape Room" film series is that it gives audience members clear directions in the title about what they should immediately do: Escape. Room. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2021
3/4 Pig (2021) Johnny Oleksinski [An] undeniably odd, but surprisingly touching drama... EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2021
The Way of All Flesh (1927) Wilella Waldorf Are the early and middle portions of the picture good enough to outweigh the atrocious third section in which every known tear-inducer but the homely onion is tossed at the audience? Thinking it over calmly, we are inclined to answer in the affirmative. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2021
3/4 Fear Street Part One: 1994 (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Nobody really needs a brain to enjoy this movie. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2021
2/4 The Forever Purge (2021) Johnny Oleksinski That idea was fun once, maybe even twice, but by the fifth outing the formula has given way to preachiness and predictability. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2021
2/4 The Tomorrow War (2021) Johnny Oleksinski [It] throws "Alien," "The Terminator" and "A Quiet Place" in a blender. And, like that gross kale smoothie you made once, the result is gray goop. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2021
3/4 Black Widow (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The movie's vibe isn't like your average MCU entry at all, really. What it reminded me of are the many James Bond films where 007 goes rogue and cavorts around world cities seeking his revenge du jour. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2021
My Name Is Bulger (2021) Michael Starr My Name Is Bulger offers an even-handed account of the Brothers Bulger, covering all their personal and professional bases and giving the family a chance to remove part of the stain from the Bulger name. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2021
2.5/4 Werewolves Within (2021) Johnny Oleksinski "Werewolves Within" joins the rarified club of video game film adaptations that don't make me want to gouge my eyes out. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2021
1/4 F9 The Fast Saga (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The series has been trudging along for 20 years (!!!), and boy it is showing its age. The tires are flat, the bumpers have rusted, this hunk of junk has at least a million miles on it. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2021
1/4 The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021) Johnny Oleksinski If it was better made, "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" would be your average bargain-bin action-comedy film. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2021
3/4 Luca (2021) Johnny Oleksinski For the most part... "Luca" is light and effervescent as a summertime Bellini, which is something parents can drink while the kids watch this. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2021
4/4 In the Heights (2021) Johnny Oleksinski Lin-Manuel Miranda has done it again! Again! EDIT
Posted Jun 10, 2021
1.5/4 The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) Johnny Oleksinski The devil made me watch it! EDIT
