1.5/4 No Score Yet A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish (2019) Think "Auto-tune: The Musical." - Movie Nation EDIT

1.5/4 No Score Yet Hold On (2019) It plays as preordained, and the emotionally-flat performances, even in roles designed to manipulate, undo it as it covers ground many before have covered. - Movie Nation EDIT

2.5/4 95% Atlantics (2019) Lovely as it often is, "Atlantics" isn't as deep as it wants to come off and isn't anybody's idea of a great film. But in the world it depicts and the vivid characters inhabiting it, it is engaging, informative and absolutely worth your while - Movie Nation EDIT

95% Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator (2019) Ora's cut-and-dried film uses those decades of gullible TV profiles to let Bikram tell his rags to riches story, spin his own creation myth. - Movie Nation EDIT

2.5/4 No Score Yet And Two If by Sea (2019) Worth a look if surf docs are your thing. Just brace yourself for the cutesie. - Movie Nation EDIT

1.5/4 No Score Yet Mob Town (2019) Make it a comedy, make it about the catering, make it more an "Analyze This" sort of mob movie, then you've got something. - Movie Nation EDIT

2.5/4 71% The Aeronauts (2019) Old fashioned...plucky. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2019
2.5/4 96% Marriage Story (2019) It's good, but it's no "Scenes from a Marriage" or "Husbands and Wives" or hell, "Company," for that matter. It's just Netflixable. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2019
4/4 93% Honey Boy (2019) One of the year's best films...You will never look at a child's performance in a film or TV show the same way after this. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2019
1.5/4 17% Playmobil: The Movie (2019) Too dull to sit through, too noisy to sleep through. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2019
2.5/4 No Score Yet Sequestrada (2019) If this rainforest bespoiling melodrama leaves the viewer unsatisfied, that's because there is no happy ending here. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2019
2.5/4 No Score Yet Wish Man (2019) Messy, meandering but heartfelt and righteous film avbout the birth of Make-A-Wish - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
1/4 No Score Yet The Great War (2019) Mostly recycled war movie cliches, with the props - guns, explosions, etc. - occasionally giving away the paltry budget. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
2/4 No Score Yet Let's Dance (2019) Whatever its French charms, its a "Step Up" movie without any sexual heat and nothing resembling sweat. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
3/4 67% I See You (2019) Taut, smart and satisfying...the sleeper of the month - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
0/4 No Score Yet 1st Born (2018) Fails on pretty much every level - music, direction, script, and the cast that performs it. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
3.5/4 94% In Fabric (2019) A devilish dose of macabre, masochistic guilt for everything you bought on Black Friday, and just in time for Christmas! - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2019
3/4 93% 1917 (2019) No, the long takes don't transform "1917" into the cinema event of 2019. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2019
3/4 100% Midnight Family (2019) A harrowing and cautionary inside look at the Wild West of Mexico City emergency services. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2019
2/4 92% Anya (2019) It's a sci-fi "fairytale," a I guess. And as such, it's sorely lacking. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2019
2/4 No Score Yet The Mandela Effect (2019) A fascinating, if heartless, failure, skimming the surface of the conspiracy, not doing justice to the tragedy. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2019
3/4 96% I Lost My Body (2019) It almost (but not quite) defies description. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2019
2.5/4 96% The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open (2019) The lack of dramatic fireworks mute the film's impact somewhat. - Movie Nation EDIT

2.5/4 96% The Irishman (2019) A talky, borderline plodding two-part mini-series of a mob movie - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2019
1/4 No Score Yet Holly Star (2018) Katlyn Carlson, of "The Jim Gaffigan Show," doesn't so much act as look cute and mug. A lot. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2019
4/4 91% Dark Waters (2019) It reminds us of what a legal crusade looks like -- a years-long grind of discovery, depositions, evidence and trials, and to be thankful for dogged, dull pluggers like Robert Bilott who stopped a mass murder in progress - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
2/4 No Score Yet Brother (Mon frère) (2019) Generally dull, by-the-numbers take on the "boys in prison" genre, with only a couple of novel French twists - Movie Nation EDIT

Read More | Posted Nov 25, 2019
1.5/4 71% The Knight Before Christmas (2019) A sweet nothing that's a lot more "nothing" than sweet. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2019
2/4 96% The Garden Left Behind (2019) Primitive...as forgettable as it is watchable. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2019
1.5/4 No Score Yet House Arrest (2019) A 22 minute sitcom pilot lost in a 104 minute rom-com - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2019
1.5/4 No Score Yet En Brazos de un Asesino (2019) It's every "Transporter" movie, and a whole lot of "hitman" romances, including TV's "Good Behavior" from a couple of years ago. How can you screw that up? - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2019
3/4 82% Queen & Slim (2019) An African American art film channeling a 1970s blaxploitation, on-the-lam-from-the-law road picture vibe. - Movie Nation EDIT

2/4 50% 21 Bridges (2019) Nothing kills a tense "ticking clock" thriller quicker than stopping that clock. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2019
1.5/4 No Score Yet Christmas Break-In (2019) This "Home Alone" knock off has a ways to go to reach "middling." - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2019
3/4 85% Waves (2019) Intimate, evocative and lurid. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2019
2.5/4 51% Earthquake Bird (2019) A middling whodunit, it's still a fine vehicle for Vikander, an actress of quiet reserve and inner fury. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2019
2.5/4 89% After Class (Safe Spaces) (2019) The Messiest Dramedy of the Year...still a fun mess to watch, and a fine showcase for Justin Long. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2019
2.5/4 91% When Lambs Become Lions (2019) I'd bet good money that "When Lambs Become Lions" is a solid, engrossing docudrama --staged and acted - not, as its director claims, a documentary. That still doesn't rob the film of its simple power - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2019
3/4 72% Shooting the Mafia (2019) AT its most engaging when it focuses strictly on the woman and her dogged work, showing her photographs in the Mafia stronghold of Corleone (go figure), using images to shake her neighbors out of their complicit silence. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2019
1.5/4 36% The Most Hated Woman In America (2017) A pretty ugly portrait, perhaps unfairly so. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2019
3/4 100% Citizen K (2019) An authoritative "How we got here" take on recent Russian history...almost too much to take in. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2019
1/4 No Score Yet Blackbear (2019) The scenario is pro forma, the dialogue trite and the fights often staged at walk-through speed. Some of the performances are achingly amateurish. - Movie Nation EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2019
3/4 100% To Kid or Not to Kid (2019) An engaging personal essay documentary about not having children, complete with interviews, arguments, hard data and sound reasoning coming from both sides of the debate - Movie Nation EDIT
