Rating Title/Year Author
7/10 The Good Liar (2019) Edward Douglas May not be as good as some of Condon's influences - Hitchcock the most obvious one - but few will be disappointed by the two hours they spend in the company of Mirren and McKellen. EDIT

The Report (2019) Edward Douglas This is a fantastic bit of investigative exposé work for a movie that isn't a doc. EDIT

6/10 Charlie's Angels (2019) Edward Douglas This just seemed like an idea that was destined to fail from the beginning, regardless of who was directing it. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2019
9.5/10 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Edward Douglas Not only one of the best movies of the year, but possibly the best movie of Mangold's brilliant career. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2019
Marriage Story (2019) Edward Douglas Easily one of the best movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
8/10 Last Christmas (2019) Edward Douglas It's taken some time, but Love Actually finally has a worthy successor. EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
6/10 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Edward Douglas Sorry, Taika, but you're no Mel Brooks. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
The King (2019) Edward Douglas Surpassed all my expectations, especially in the battle sequence in the last half of the movie which is on par with anything in Gladiator or Braveheart. EDIT

Lucy in the Sky (2019) Edward Douglas A true-crime story with Hawley's artistic filmmaking touch and some gorgeous imagery... Lucy in the Sky really isn't so bad. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
8/10 Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Edward Douglas I'm a little bummed so few people are going to see this in theaters surrounded by laughter. Just the fact that Netflix is getting a movie about Dolemite into the world makes it easier to forgive them. EDIT

8.5/10 Dolor y gloria (2019) Edward Douglas Another beautiful and brilliant piece of art and storytelling from Almodovar and a welcome return to form both for him and for Banderas. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
7.5/10 Joker (2019) Edward Douglas Phillips has created a compelling character study with Phoenix's performance something that will be talked about for a long time. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2019
4.5/10 The Laundromat (2019) Edward Douglas It feels like everyone involved with Soderbergh's latest has grown tired of the Oscars on their mantle and decided to make a concentrated effort to go for a few Razzies. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019
8.5/10 First Love (2019) Edward Douglas First Love is [Miike's] best movie since Audition, and having seen that again recently, I think it's even better than that. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019
8/10 Judy (2019) Edward Douglas Judy really surprised me in how much I enjoyed it, but I won't be even remotely surprised if Zellwegger wins her second Oscar. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019
8/10 Hustlers (2019) Edward Douglas I'm not sure if women who see this movie will rush out to take stripping classes in order to fuel their sense of empowerment, but Hustlers is a genuinely enjoyable film that tells a fascinating story. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
Kamera o tomeru na! (2017) Edward Douglas The complex intricacies ... makes this one of my favorite recent zombie-related movies since the similarly great Korean film, Train to Busan. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
7/10 The Goldfinch (2019) Edward Douglas It's long at 2.5 hours but Theo's story is a complicated one to tell, and it all adds up and pays off eventually. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! (2017) Edward Douglas Super Size Me 2 is as entertaining as some of [Morgan's] past films. EDIT
Posted Sep 4, 2019
Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice (2019) Edward Douglas Continues a long run of solid music docs we've been getting so far this year. EDIT
Posted Sep 4, 2019
8/10 It: Chapter Two (2019) Edward Douglas Incredibly satisfying, because it feels like every moment in the first chapter eventually does pay off, some in quite emotional ways. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Edward Douglas A joyous inspirational film that showcases Bell's talent. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
7/10 Angel Has Fallen (2019) Edward Douglas Offers enough action, tension and drama to be worth the price of admission, making it one of the better threequels in recent memory. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
5.5/10 Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Edward Douglas I'm honestly surprised this isn't a Netflix movie. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
8.5/10 Good Boys (2019) Edward Douglas I haven't laughed this hard in a very long time. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2019
8/10 Blinded by the Light (2019) Edward Douglas A thoroughly enjoyable film with a lot to like about it, even if you're not a fan of 'The Boss.' EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2019
Esto no es Berlín (2019) Edward Douglas What's especially interesting is the exploration of sexuality by the two friends in the movie and how that is affected as they go further down a rabbit hole of drugs and depravity. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
Vision Portraits (2019) Edward Douglas It's not a sexy movie, but it's an important one. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Edward Douglas A very enjoyable film that might have some appeal to wrestling fans EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
One Child Nation (2019) Edward Douglas A heartbreaking and emotional film with the situation so well portrayed by the two filmmakers. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
6/10 The Red Sea Diving Resort (2018) Edward Douglas Tone is all over the place, sometimes to the point of ridiculousness. Bouncing back and forth from the serious to the frivolous is not something that works in this case. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Tel Aviv on Fire (2018) Edward Douglas I didn't go into it expecting a comedy, so when it proved to be particularly witty and entertaining, I was glad I made the effort to see it. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
7.5/10 The Nightingale (2018) Edward Douglas This is a tough and serious drama that still has genre elements, but it leaves a lasting imprint on you, not always in a good way. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
8/10 Luce (2019) Edward Douglas I would not be remotely shocked if Spencer gets another Oscar nomination for her role in this. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Skin (2018) Edward Douglas The film marks a career best for Bell, who just carries himself so differently that it's hard to believe that it's the same actor who played Bernie Taupin in Rocketman. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2019
8/10 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Edward Douglas It takes some time to get there, but when it comes down to it, Once Upon a Time... is a decent mid-range Tarantino film. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2019
Sea of Shadows (2019) Edward Douglas Not your typical DisneyNature film and definitely not for kids ... the scenes with the vaquitas show them to be beautiful animals with true intelligence and soul, making their plight that much more heartbreaking. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
8.5/10 Sword of Trust (2019) Edward Douglas A true joy and why independent filmmakers like [Lynn] Shelton are still so important in this day of big budget remakes, sequels and focus on franchises... EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
9/10 The Farewell (2019) Edward Douglas Wang's film is a must-see, and I'd be shocked if Awkwafina wasn't in the Oscar discussions by year's end. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
5.5/10 Stuber (2019) Edward Douglas Ends up being so predictable and by the books, while also being kind of offensive to its own characters, you leave the movie wondering if it was worth it for the little bit of entertainment it provides. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love (2019) Edward Douglas An amazing film by the award-winning documentarian that has a lot of revelations. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2019
7/10 Midsommar (2019) Edward Douglas If your favorite part of Hereditary was its crazy ending and you didn't think it was crazy enough, then Midsommar is the movie for you! EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
8.5/10 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Edward Douglas Tom Holland's Spider-Man is one of the best MCU characters who proves that he can readily carry a movie on his own. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
9/10 Yesterday (2019) Edward Douglas Yesterday is just wonderful, and it's easily one of my favorite movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
8.5/10 Wild Rose (2018) Edward Douglas The film is pretty amazing, especially to watch Rose-Lynn's story unfold and how much energy Buckley brings to the role. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2019
Plus One (2019) Edward Douglas If you're the type of person who gets dragged to weddings every other weekend, this movie is definitely for you. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2019
8.5/10 Toy Story 4 (2019) Edward Douglas A more than worthy finale to the series that's as funny, entertaining and emotional as the first three movies. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019
8.5/10 Late Night (2019) Edward Douglas A joyous breakout film for Kaling ... if you can imagine a cross between Tina Fey's 30 Rock and Kumail Nanjiani's The Big Sick EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
6/10 Men in Black: International (2019) Edward Douglas Tessa Thompson shines in an otherwise uninspired and mostly unfunny reboot that really doesn't give much hope for the future of this franchise. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
4.5/10 Dark Phoenix (2019) Edward Douglas Granted, Dark Phoenix isn't the worst superhero movie ever made. It's just so lazy in every aspect of its storytelling and filmmaking you wonder if anyone but Kinberg even gives a [crap] anymore. EDIT
