Us (2019) Victoria Alexander Jordan Peele does the miraculous: his follow up to GET OUT does not cheat his fans. And if you can dope out the twist, it's terrific. EDIT

Posted Mar 21, 2019

Posted Nov 8, 2018
Suspiria (2018) Victoria Alexander A fascinating, moody landscape ripe for horror. This "remake" is far more interesting, challenging and demanding then its little-seen, poorly-reviewed original. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2018
A Simple Favor (2018) Victoria Alexander Blake Lively finally achieves the status of actress with a delicious role seemingly written for her. Bravo. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2018
The Predator (2018) Victoria Alexander The Predator begins its new life merging Iron Man, comedy and the most essential puzzle piece - an "on the spectrum" kid. What's next? "Xenomorph XX121" speaking English with a British accent? Be afraid, be very afraid, it's coming. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2018
Operation Finale (2018) Victoria Alexander Not how Eichmann was captured but how did he stay free and living easy for 15 years on the worldwide lam? EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2018

Posted Aug 23, 2018
Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018) Victoria Alexander This is how Cruise returns to Zeus-level stardom. He gives his fans no stuntmen in masks and costumes. No green screen. Its him and he's spectacular. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2018
Three Identical Strangers (2018) Victoria Alexander Tim Wardle's documentary is meticulously researched and thoroughly harrowing; however, I have two questions that the director bypassed. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
The First Purge (2018) Victoria Alexander HA! For 100 days in 1994, Rwandans were encouraged to kill with machetes. 800,000 people were murdered by men, women and children hacking up neighbors and taking their land, cattle and homes for themselves. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2018
Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Victoria Alexander Our favorite ruthless killers are back and a Brolin/Del Toro non-superhero franchise, now an oddity, is born. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2018
Tag (2018) Victoria Alexander The waterboarding scene was hilarious! EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2018
Beast (2017) Victoria Alexander Sensational. Buckley and Flynn are sensational. Skip the comic book movies and see BEAST. This film stays with you. EDIT
Posted Jun 9, 2018
Disobedience (2017) Victoria Alexander Luminous Weisz fearlessly delves into fetish lovemaking. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2018
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Victoria Alexander The director(s) left Han in the background. The iconic Solo deserved a better origin story. A seasoned actor would have demanded more presence and not a hobbled, wimpy love story. A typical Ron Howard movie lacking passion. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2018
Deadpool 2 (2018) Victoria Alexander He's back and still nasty. Does not disappoint, even better than the first. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2018

Posted May 12, 2018

Posted May 10, 2018
Kings (2017) Victoria Alexander It's about screaming and loud yelling. Not to be left out, even Craig gets a screaming scene. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2018

Posted Apr 27, 2018

Posted Apr 17, 2018
Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Victoria Alexander Delivers a clever ending answering the looming question, how to get out of the curse? EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2018
The Commuter (2018) Victoria Alexander Too implausible, too convoluted to be a serious thriller but Neeson is all in and director Collet-Serra has obvious talent. But who can dope out the plot? EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2018
Black Panther (2018) Victoria Alexander With a bloated 2 hour, 15 minute running time, Coogler ran out of ideas. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2018
The 15:17 to Paris (2018) Victoria Alexander Review proof. Padded story with an inoffensive screenplay, stunt casting and, dare I call it, boring. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2018
Call Me by Your Name (2017) Victoria Alexander Enthralling and unforgettable. Yet, reenforces society's belief that the penis is ugly. Could physically gifted Armie Hammer has an ugly penis? EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2017
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Victoria Alexander They ticked off all the boxes except the one marked "Jar Jar Binks." You are very old if you needed to see all these characters again. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2017
I, Tonya (2017) Victoria Alexander A stunning performance by Robbie that should gain her a Best Actress nomination. Who could beat Janney's fearless, cruel performance in the Best Supporting category? EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2017
All the Money in the World (2017) Victoria Alexander Atmospheric thriller from the great Ridley Scott and the perfect Getty - Christopher Plummer. Its his movie. He dominates it. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2017
Phantom Thread (2017) Victoria Alexander Reminds me of Pablo Picasso. Brilliant in its savvy cruelty. Day-Lewis delves deeply into his character's psyche. Best Actor of 2017! EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2017
Wonder Wheel (2017) Victoria Alexander Woody Allen's BLUE JASMINE and now WONDER WHEEL explore his obsession that women are Judases, harming the people closest to them. EDIT
Posted Nov 25, 2017
Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Victoria Alexander Cate Blanchett is Marvel's new goddess and deserves her own franchise. This is the best of the Avengers and Hemsworth's charisma shines throughout, after all, he is the God of Thunder. EDIT
Posted Nov 25, 2017
The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Victoria Alexander Brilliant, unusual thriller by a masterful director. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2017
The Florida Project (2017) Victoria Alexander Frankly, today, what six-year old do you see walking around without a parent? Social Services would be called immediately. EDIT

Posted Oct 12, 2017

mother! (2017) Victoria Alexander What sustains and nurtures creativity? Aronofsky understands the cruelty of genius. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2017
Step (2017) Victoria Alexander Its hard to criticize such an inspiring, well-intentional film. What's next? Senior citizens in wheelchairs across the country starting "synchronized clapping" teams? EDIT

Posted Aug 11, 2017
Detroit (2017) Victoria Alexander This is an unnecessarily provocative account. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2017
Lady Macbeth (2016) Victoria Alexander Another delicious repressed femme fatale. Erotically exploits the young woman archetype who only wants to satisfy her desires - the hell with the consequences. EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2017
A Ghost Story (2017) Victoria Alexander A stunning philosophical film without compromise. Lowery's A GHOST STORY is so original, daring and slow that it returns the medium of film into the hands of the director. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2017
Atomic Blonde (2017) Victoria Alexander Sensational. Jason Bourne and James Bond - this is the genre's alpha successor. Theron is a goddess. EDIT

Dunkirk (2017) Victoria Alexander With magnificent visuals, tension is the star. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2017
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Victoria Alexander SPIDER-MAN will soon be celebrating his 15th birthday. Marvel Studios decided that 15% of moviegoers age 12-17 is the demographic they are investing in. EDIT
