67% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Their adventures take on delicious new turns but never stray too far from the original idea of what it means to be a family when most of humanity has turned into brain-eating corpses. - TheWrap EDIT

100% Emanuel (2019) It is a tribute to those who lost loved ones, but it's also a movie with a message, one that emphasizes some survivors and family members' willingness to forgive Roof just mere days after he walked into their church. - TheWrap EDIT

35% In the Tall Grass (2019) While it's not the sharpest of King's stories, Natali's cast redeems the film's shortcomings. - Polygon EDIT

No Score Yet The Ship of Monsters (La Nave de los Monstruos) (1960) A wildly energetic oddity that defies expectations. - Remezcla EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
No Score Yet August (Agosto) (2019) While the movie may serve as a dark reminder of this not-so-distant past, it's also a testament to the idea that life does not stop because of politics. - Remezcla EDIT

1.5/4 28% Corporate Animals (2019) A miserable time in poor company. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

1/4 22% Lucy in the Sky (2019) There's a point at which this joke stops being funny and turns sad, and it's very early in its over two hours runtime. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019

Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2019
2/4 83% Judy (2019) Try as she might, Zellweger's Judy never goes beyond an impression of the multi-talented artist; her all-caps version of acting fails to allow the role to feel natural. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2019
92% Monos (2019) As Landes explores the psychology of a group of kids being asked to grow up too fast, he redirects some of our sympathy for the doctor to the kids who are swept up in something they (and by extension, the audience) may not fully understand. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019

58% The Moneychanger (Así habló el cambista) (2019) That extra layer of meaning that makes Humberto's saga so enticing. - Remezcla EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2019
86% Ms. Purple (2019) Each layer is so beautifully, subtly explored, you can get lost in the characters' emotions or just be swept away by Ante Cheng's cinematography, which graciously soaks in the street and neons light of Los Angeles. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2019
No Score Yet Long Gone By (2019) It's a movie with a message - but one harder to grasp when hidden by sensationalism. - Remezcla EDIT

No Score Yet Too Beautiful: Our Right to Fight (2018) Whether she's running up several flights of stairs or punching sandbags in the yard, the movie consistently keeps the energy up. - Remezcla EDIT

97% Tigers Are Not Afraid (Vuelven) (2019) While del Toro puts his characters into historical conflicts, López is right at home spinning a modern-day fairytale that directly addresses the cost of daily violence. - TheWrap EDIT

3/4 96% Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (2019) Morrison's legacy is more than just the titles on a reading list, and this documentary will likely help many viewers see just how monumental her accomplishments remain. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

3/4 98% Too Late to Die Young (Tarde para morir joven) (2019) "Too Late to Die Young" almost has a timeless quality to it, a period unencumbered by outdated tech and dusty cultural references.

Read More | Posted May 15, 2019
34% Poms (2019) It's uneven at times and hits a few too many clichés for my taste, but if my preview audience was any indication, the movie's still pretty effective. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted May 9, 2019

38% El Chicano (2019) Like in this year's remake of Miss Bala, the Mexicans in this movie are the bad guys, the drug-running cartel members ruining it for the rest of us in the United States. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted May 3, 2019
100% The Kill Team (2019) Both a tense moral thriller and a disheartening account of our country's actions abroad. - TheWrap EDIT
