2/4 31% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) "Rambo: Last Blood" features what's easily the most violent movie scene of the year. It's awesome. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 75% Where's My Roy Cohn? (2019) Roy Cohn was way more entertaining than the new documentary about Roy Cohn. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 81% Ad Astra (2019) When somebody asks Brad Pitt what he did this summer, here's how he should respond: "Resuscitated my acting career!" - New York Post EDIT

1/4 25% The Goldfinch (2019) In simultaneously successfully shoving in every little thing and thus ruining the book, director John Crowley and writer Peter Straughan have killed two birds with one stone. - New York Post EDIT

1.5/4 85% Downton Abbey (2019) Two thumbs "Downton." - New York Post EDIT

3/4 63% It Chapter Two (2019) An immensely satisfying, often thrilling adventure film. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 18% The Fanatic (2019) Travolta, earnest but ridiculous, spends his time furiously rocking back and forth and bellowing to the heavens. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2019
1.5/4 80% Official Secrets (2019) So much of Gregory Bernstein, Sara Bernstein and Gavin Hood's screenplay arrives with a thud that it might've been written with clenched fists. Knightley's overwrought performance doesn't help either. - New York Post EDIT

3.5/4 88% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) "Brittany" is a comedy so relatable for young New Yorkers, you might need to take a walk after watching it. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 67% Driven (2019) "Driven" is a lot like a DeLorean: Looks great, but moves slow - if it even moves at all. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 46% Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Richard Linklater directed this? - New York Post EDIT

0/4 22% The Kitchen (2019) "The Kitchen" would seem to be a belabored exercise in third-wave feminism. But if what that movement has come to is "See? Women can be murderous thugs, too!," then it's time for some re-branding. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 93% Luce (2019) "Luce" is a taut, extremely watchable movie, though the dialogue could loosen up a touch. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) The first spinoff in the "Fast & Furious" franchise has misguidedly been made into a ho-hum spy comedy. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) I think what Tarantino is going for is brazenly manipulating historical events to suit his style, and turning a well-worn genre on its head. But in so doing he's made an everything bagel of a movie: Part satire, part bear-hug, part fictional bromance. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2019
2/4 83% The Art of Self-Defense (2019) It's amusing, and occasionally funny, but the gags and the identical monotone in which every line is delivered grates. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2019
2/4 90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) The action, villainy, twists and overall logic fall short of its awesome predecessor. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2019
3/4 63% Yesterday (2019) How soul-satisfying it is for a movie to so strongly believe that if "Help!" was written tomorrow, it would be as popular as "Havana." - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
4/4 64% Child's Play (2019) This re-imagining of Chucky's origins manages to be both crazier and more level-headed than the original, in which the doll strolled around Chicago talking like a gangster from "Guys and Dolls." - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 97% Toy Story 4 (2019) "Toy Story 4" ends on a respectable, bittersweet note that would make the perfect bookend to this likable franchise. But so did the last movie. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2019
1/4 22% Men in Black International (2019) The actors would both make very nice AirBnB hosts, but you can't hang an action comedy on dreamy smiles. - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Turner might be a one-trick pony - I don't see her signing onto "The Hangover: Part V" anytime soon - but it's a winning trick. - New York Post EDIT

2.5/4 54% Ma (2019) The relative success of "Ma" is largely thanks to an intense performance from Spencer... - New York Post EDIT

41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) The whole movie is indistinguishable rubble. - New York Post EDIT

4/4 97% Booksmart (2019) You'd be smart to book tickets. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2019
3/4 89% Rocketman (2019) As a singer Egerton lands somewhere between Elton John and William Hung, but regardless he feels the words deeply and has so much charisma that his red blood cells may well be sequins. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2019
3/4 57% Aladdin (2019) The studio must've rubbed the heck out of its magic lamp, because the family film has unexpectedly turned out shining, shimmering, splendid. - New York Post EDIT

2/4 51% The Sun Is Also a Star (2019) Once again, with the odds stacked against them, two extremely attractive people have fallen in love. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The plot of "John Wick 3" won't surprise you, but the movie will. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted May 15, 2019
2/4 14% The Hustle (2019) "The Hustle" slavishly hews to the script of "Scoundrels," sometimes even the way scenes are shot. It's only adjusted for technology - mobile phones, computers, Venmo - and the actresses' personalities, aka boring and klutzy. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 34% Poms (2019) "Poms" is an embarrassment. - New York Post EDIT

3/4 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Who would have thought that one of the most enjoyable buddy-cop movies of 2019 would star a Pokémon? - New York Post EDIT

1/4 27% UglyDolls (2019) The message of the screechy new kids' movie "UglyDolls" may appear to be "Be yourself," but the real takeaway here is "Buy our merch!" - New York Post EDIT

3/4 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) You have to hand it to the directors for their ambition in bringing together a clown car full of characters into such a well-told and compelling yarn. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2019
1/4 60% Breakthrough (2019) It's a harrowing tale that deserves a much better movie than this insipid junk. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2019
2/4 47% Little (2019) I only wish the "Little" laughs were bigger. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2019
0/4 17% Hellboy (2019) The race for worst movie of the year is heating up. You could even say it's hotter than hell, now that "Hellboy" has taken the lead. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2019
2.5/4 58% Pet Sematary (2019) Doesn't get creative enough with the haunting images that were so memorable in King's book. And when making a movie out of this story, you absolutely must get creative... - New York Post EDIT

3/4 91% Shazam! (2019) We're just as invested in Billy's search for his long-lost mom as we are in his ability to jump off a skyscraper unscathed. Now that's super! - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019
3/4 47% Dumbo (2019) Those flight sequences - first suspenseful, then euphoric - take you back to the classic "Dumbo" as much as they do to classic Burton. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
1.5/4 No Score Yet Trading Paint (2019) Sure, there's potential for pleasure in an old story done right, but Travolta croaking out a Southern accent as he overplays his outbursts and emotional reconciliations doesn't qualify. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2019
1/4 56% The Beach Bum (2019) Meet Moondog - a movie character you'll want to punch in the face. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2019
3/4 55% Five Feet Apart (2019) Sprouse and Richardson make for one of the more adorable pairs in recent films. You not only want what's best for them, but believe it can actually happen. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2019
2.5/4 72% Triple Frontier (2019) There are some zippy chase scenes and shootouts, and tension throughout. But the characters - especially the lethargic Affleck - make for more of a C-Team than an A-Team. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
2/4 34% Wonder Park (2019) If "Wonder Park" were a carnival attraction, it would be the merry-go-round. The animated movie has animals, relentless positivity and the most predictable journey ever. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
1/4 27% The Aftermath (2019) The drama is a crude blend of history and pulpy romance, with maudlin performances from the two leads. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
3/4 98% 3 Faces (2019) Panahi, who defied a filmmaking ban from the Iranian government to make this, is a director always worth supporting. - New York Post EDIT

1.5/4 78% Captain Marvel (2019) The character, even when kicking ass, is a total bore. - New York Post EDIT

1/4 60% Greta (2019) Filled with "Jaws"-y surprise moments, it's less likely to elicit shivers than giggles. So does much of the dialogue. - New York Post EDIT
