Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Dan Tabor Sure it's campy and a bit goofy but it's the right direction for these films and the right audience to target since Godzilla belongs to the monster kids, both young and old. EDIT

Us (2019) Dan Tabor Simultaneously terrifying and hilarious, Us is a popcorn movie with the depth and gravity of Kubrick and the hair-raising suspense of peak Hitchcock. EDIT

Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Dan Tabor The big question you can't help but asking after watching Zombieland 2 is was this film really necessary? About 10 years ago, this film would have been a no-brainer, but now it feels a bit more like a nostalgia exercise. EDIT

4.5/5 Knives Out (2019) Dan Tabor Rian Johnson has crafted an edge of your seat mystery that is bitingly relevant as it is clever. Armed with a stellar cast and an irreverent, meticulously-paced script, Johnson has crafted a new genre classic. EDIT

5/5 Uncut Gems (2019) Dan Tabor Uncut Gems is tense, sleaze-filled trip through the dark underbelly of New York's Jeweler's Row. Sandler is gloriously unhinged on screen in what is hands-down the performance of his lifetime. EDIT

2.5/5 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Dan Tabor The crux of this dense narrative is a string of reveals that work at the cost of coherence and continuity with everything that has come before. EDIT
