Posted Oct 1, 2019
C Joker (2019) Matt Goldberg Despite a strong performance from Joaquin Phoenix, Todd Phillips' Scorsese-infused adaptation is less than the sum of its parts. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019

Posted Sep 13, 2019
A- Sea Fever (2019) Perri Nemiroff Sea Fever is a nightmare you can't take your eyes off of and can't stop thinking about after it wraps up. It's a highly engrossing and entertaining way to challenge assumptions and reactions to the unknown. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
B+ () Perri Nemiroff Douglas makes one bad decision after the next but rather than lose faith, Cosmo Jarvis expertly balances Douglas' propensity for violence with his desperation to be a good father, encouraging you to root for him while the walls of his reality close in. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
B Guns Akimbo (2019) Perri Nemiroff An expertly crafted thrill that'll electrify a midnight crowd. It's super ambitious and irresistibly flashy. Director Jason Lei Howden is the real deal and it's only a matter of time before more take notice. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
B+ Judy (2019) Perri Nemiroff Zellweger beautifully captures the integrity of Garland's will to entertain. Your heart aches knowing she'll never get the happily ever after she's dreamed of, but it also puts great emphasis on the value of the experiences had while reaching for it. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019
A- Hustlers (2019) Perri Nemiroff Hustlers has everything going for it. It's brimming with energy, respects its characters and makes you think. If you're looking for a great time at the theater that also boasts artistry and heart, Hustlers is undoubtedly one of the best options of 2019. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2019

Posted Sep 12, 2019
C- Lucy in the Sky (2019) Matt Goldberg Noah Hawley's movie never evolves past its interesting concept and its climax feels a bit exploitative. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019

Posted Sep 11, 2019

Posted Sep 11, 2019

Posted Sep 10, 2019

Posted Sep 10, 2019
4/5 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Adam Chitwood It's executed so sharply, with such artistic confidence and mastery, that it rises above its familiar structure to become a rousing, wildly compelling, and genuinely great racing movie. EDIT

Posted Sep 8, 2019
B+ A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Matt Goldberg Rather than functioning as a Mister Rogers biopic, Marielle Heller's movie imparts Fred Rogers' wisdom as a lesson for cynical adults. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2019
4.5/5 Knives Out (2019) Adam Chitwood It's an impeccably constructed roller coaster ride created by a mad (but meticulous) engineer, and when it ends you'll immediately want to get back on. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2019

Posted Sep 8, 2019
F The Goldfinch (2019) Matt Goldberg When it's not being mawkish garbage resting on coincidence, John Crowley's movie is a soulless survey of 21st century America. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2019
B Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Matt Goldberg Eddie Murphy shines in a light, loving tribute to Rudy Ray Moore. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2019

Posted Sep 7, 2019
B Just Mercy (2019) Matt Goldberg Destin Daniel Cretton's adaption of Bryan Stevenson's memoir is a populist cry to recognize racial injustice as systemic rather than interpersonal. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2019
3/5 Radioactive (2020) Adam Chitwood While the story treads familiar territory to anyone who's seen a biopic about a famous Great Man, director Marjane Satrapi elegantly considers the cost at the heart of Curie's discoveries, and Rosamund Pike delivers a truly stirring performance. EDIT
Posted Sep 6, 2019
B- It: Chapter Two (2019) Haleigh Foutch Delivers the emotional catharsis King's epic horror tale deserves. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
B- The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil (2019) Haleigh Foutch Lee delivers a thrilling crime actioner, bolstered by his eye for livening up the screen with pops of color, some brutal fight scenes, one very solid car chase, and another commanding performance from Ma Dong-seok. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
A Extreme Job (2019) Haleigh Foutch Original, endlessly amusing, and ultimately gratifying, Extreme Job is a contender for feel-good movie of the year. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
B+ Come To Daddy (2019) Haleigh Foutch Funny and F'ed in the head with a cartoonish sense of humor that borders on magical realism, Come to Daddy is a strange brew, but it's a good one. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
B+ Vivarium (2020) Haleigh Foutch Come for the striking set design and killer performances, stay for the immersive mystery, and leave with a crippling fear of children and nagging concerns about the universe's cruel indifference. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
C- Sadako (2019) Haleigh Foutch A routine sequel determined to pluck away at the same stale material, a cover of the greatest hits, rather than redefining the franchise for a new era. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
B- Cold Case Hammarskjöld (2019) Matt Goldberg While the finer points of Mads Brügger's documentary are debatable, the larger truths are undeniable. EDIT

Posted Aug 15, 2019
D+ The Kitchen (2019) Perri Nemiroff McCarthy, Haddish & Moss seem to give the roles their all, but The Kitchen is so disjointed that the effort is for naught. The movie's big finish is one of the most unsatisfying, disappointing endings I've seen all year. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
B- Blood on Her Name (2019) Haleigh Foutch A gripping watch, even through the weaker moments. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2019

Posted Aug 8, 2019
3/5 Ferrell Takes The Field (2015) Allison Keene [Will] Ferrell is still of course very funny. But the short, whirlwind special seems to have left so much on the cutting room floor. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
4/5 7 Days in Hell (2015) Chris Cabin The fact that the film is an unmitigated romp is not something that should be apologized for or excused away. Indeed, such gleeful and lively slices of conviviality that embrace frivolity should be celebrated. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
B- Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Dave Trumbore If we're talking about a straight-up, objective review based on filmmaking tenets, Hobbs & Shaw is a B-. But for the adrenaline-fueled fun, fights, and family dynamics that the Fast & Furious franchise has become known for, it's an A all the way, baby. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2019
4/5 Amy Schumer: Live From the Apollo (2015) Chris Cabin If Live at the Apollo doesn't have quite the number of guffaws that Inside Amy Schumer so often produces, it nevertheless remains a deliriously enjoyable and refreshing take on a rite of passage for most major comedians. EDIT
