Posted Dec 9, 2020

3.5/4 Freaky (2020) Linda Cook I know this is impossible, because these kinds of films never earn Oscar nominations. But darned if Vaughn doesn't deserve one for his performance here... He's hysterically funny and endearing. The whole movie, in fact, is a real scream. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2020
4/4 Wolfwalkers (2020) Linda Cook The themes of abuse of power, of xenophobia, and courage to do what's right run through this remarkable adventure that richly deserves to be seen on the big screen. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2020
3.5/4 The Forty-Year-Old Version (2020) Linda Cook Theater buffs will applaud the perspective on how a play is written, produced and, finally, performed, all to great comedic effect here. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2020
3/4 Come Play (2020) Linda Cook There's a little bit of Poltergeist, a touch of Mama, and a smidgen of The Babadook in this one. That doesn't make it derivative -- it stands on its own as a story about the torment of an already-tormented boy. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2020
4/4 My Octopus Teacher (2020) Linda Cook The lovely, incredible My Octopus Teacher will have you tearing up while you learn about the creature that forms an unusual friendship with a human. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2020
4/4 Let Him Go (2020) Linda Cook Although it's marvelous to see Costner and Lane together -- allowing their characters to communicate without dialogue -- it's equally engaging to watch Manville inhabit a villainess so despicable you won't be able to get her out of your head. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2020
3/4 Faith Based (2020) Linda Cook The movie, while it maintains an edge, really doesn't have a mean bone in its cinematic body. I love the way the friendship is depicted with realistic dialogue and great chemistry between the two leads. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2020
3/4 Skin Walker (2019) Linda Cook It's a creepy character study just perfect for the Halloween season. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2020
3.5/4 The Speed Cubers (2020) Linda Cook I loved watching the competitors, using mental algorithms, solve in seconds what would take me weeks to figure out. In some parts of the competition, contestants use only one hand. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2020
0.5/4 The War With Grandpa (2020) Linda Cook To see Walken and De Niro, who starred together in The Deer Hunter, reduced to this is infuriating, although I'm sure they took the roles just for a lark and the money. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2020
3.5/4 The Outpost (2020) Linda Cook I think this beautifully depicts the uncertainty of combat and the moments before and after, too. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2020
3.5/4 The Last Shift (2020) Linda Cook Director/screenwriter Andrew Cohn has a knack for showing how real people talk, and what they talk about. I really appreciate the dialogue in this dramedy. EDIT

Posted Sep 30, 2020
3/4 Secret Society of Second Born Royals (2020) Linda Cook A solid, enjoyable romp, and probably the beginning of a franchise that blends Disney royalty and superheros with a new spin. EDIT
Posted Sep 29, 2020
3/4 Shortcut (2020) Linda Cook It's a movie that never overstays its welcome - a nice outing for horror fans. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2020
