Posted May 4, 2021
3.5/4 The Mitchells vs. the Machines (2021) Lisa Trifone The film doesn't lose track of its core thesis, that the family you've got is the only one you'll get. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
3.5/4 About Endlessness (2019) Lisa Trifone Everything in About Endlessness is kept at arm's length, the filmmaker working in a series of tableaus rather than scenes. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021
3.5/4 Quo Vadis, Aida? (2020) Lisa Trifone The film's final few moments are perhaps the most affecting, the ramifications of that day, that war, devastatingly laid out before us. EDIT

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021
2/4 Here Are the Young Men (2021) Steven Prokopy There's nothing about the story's progression that doesn't telegraph exactly where it's headed. EDIT

Posted May 4, 2021
2.5/4 Mortal Kombat (2021) Steven Prokopy This from-the-ground-up reboot certainly doesn't skimp on attempting to make things more like the video games (specifically) and more exciting (in general)... EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
3.5/4 Stowaway (2021) Steven Prokopy Stowaway plays out like a chamber play about ethics and human dignity and whether life matters more than mission, all in a science-fiction framework. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
2/4 Vanquish (2021) Steven Prokopy Vanquish is meant to be a portrait of desperation, but it's basically just a non-stop chase movie punctuated by gunplay and occasional explosions EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
2.5/4 Monday (2020) Steven Prokopy The film feels wonderfully intimate at times, but that level of closeness exacts a price in return. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021
2.5/4 Voyagers (2021) Steven Prokopy The film's production design and general tone are solid, but it's not quite enough to elevate the movie to greater heights. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
3/4 The Power (2021) Steven Prokopy Williams is impossibly good as Val... EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021

Posted May 4, 2021
3.5/4 Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Steven Prokopy ...does a fairly solid job pulling the loose threads together into a story about creatures like Godzilla and Kong...and their origins on this planet. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
3/4 The Outside Story (2020) Steven Prokopy These actors are so ridiculously likable that it's an easy film to slip into... EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
2.5/4 We Broke Up (2021) Steven Prokopy Cash and Harper are so darn likable that We Broke Up probably succeeds in places where it might not have with other actors. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021

Posted Apr 23, 2021
2.5/4 The Tunnel (2019) Lisa Trifone There's something halfway decent hidden in all the smoke and sentimentality. EDIT
Posted Mar 30, 2021
3/4 The Good Traitor (2020) Steven Prokopy If for no other reason, check it out because Thomsen truly is one of the greatest actors on the planet who hasn't quite broken through in America... EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2021
2.5/4 Six Minutes to Midnight (2020) Steven Prokopy Six Minutes to Midnight works as an intriguing spy thriller for about half its running time... EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2021

Posted Mar 26, 2021

Posted Mar 26, 2021

Posted Mar 26, 2021
3/4 Happily (2021) Steven Prokopy [A] joyfully oddball work about friends who aren't your friends and the price one young couple must pay for always being happy. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2021
3/4 City of Lies (2018) Steven Prokopy With almost as many twists, turns, false leads, and possible suspects as the JFK assassination, City of Lies is a great showcase for Depp and Whitaker. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2021
3/4 The Courier (2020) Steven Prokopy The low-key nature of the film almost works against its ability to be emotionally impactful... I found myself gently pulled into this story, almost imperceptibly. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2021

Posted Mar 26, 2021
1/4 Cosmic Sin (2021) Steven Prokopy Clearly made on a budget, the film feels cheap and somehow both overwritten and underwritten. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2021

Posted Mar 26, 2021
