Posted Nov 7, 2019
Honey Boy (2019) Anne Cohen It's probably not the movie you're expecting. It's better. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2019
Harriet (2019) Stephanie Long Despite casting backlash, Erivo's portrayal of Tubman is gripping, capturing Harriet's determination, strength, and fortitude in a way that's yet to be seen on screen. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
Charlie Says (2018) Anne Cohen Charlie Says makes a strong case for an even grayer area: That perhaps these women can be victims and guilty of horrific, unpardonable crimes. It's an unsettling thought. But at least, unlike the exaltation of Ted Bundy's abundant charm, it's a new one. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2019
Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Anne Cohen Like most of Tarantino's work, Once Upon A Time in... Hollywood is eliciting very strong emotions on both sides of the spectrum. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2019
The Lighthouse (2019) Anne Cohen It is a cult classic in the making, with the potential to be our generation's version of the The Rocky Horror Picture Show. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2019

Posted Oct 16, 2019
Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Anne Cohen There's something undeniably charming about this particular cast and the chemistry they share. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
Parasite (2019) Anne Cohen It's exhilarating, unexpected and, frankly, wild. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
The King (2019) Anne Cohen The sum of its individually compelling parts don't quite add up. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
Lucy in the Sky (2019) Anne Cohen It is boring. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
Charlie's Angels (2000) Anne Cohen Though undeniably flawed, the movie...remains a surprisingly fun watch. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2019
Judy (2019) Anne Cohen It's heart-rending, to be sure, but also tragically predictable in format. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019
Tall Girl (2019) Anne Cohen It's a cute conceit for a rom-com...or, at least, it would be, if Tall Girl weren't so lacking in self-awareness. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2019
() Anne Cohen On the whole, it's a charming movie about the mental toll of insecurity that also has major blind spots. EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2019
Downton Abbey (2019) Anne Cohen Downton has always been about spectacle, and the movie doesn't disappoint. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2019
How to Build a Girl (2019) Anne Cohen Feels like an extension of my own teenage dreams...a loving tribute to young women with overactive imaginations, and a desire to reinvent themselves. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2019
Hustlers (2019) Anne Cohen A thrilling story filtered through the female gaze - and all the more commanding for it. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2019
It: Chapter Two (2019) Anne Cohen The second film meanders, sagging in the middle, and devoting far too much time to a final showdown between our protagonists and their foe. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
Untouchable (2019) Anne Cohen The most powerful moments in Untouchable come thanks to Weinstein's victims, who once more bear the burden of reliving their past trauma in an effort to make a difference. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2019
Casper (1995) Anne Cohen It's a funny and often poignant film that's worth reexamining today. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2019
Official Secrets (2019) Anne Cohen That Official Secrets is still compelling is largely down to its powerfully competent cast. EDIT
Posted Aug 22, 2019
Ready or Not (2019) Anne Cohen This movie is the kind best enjoyed by knowing as little as possible going in. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2019
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Anne Cohen That message hits especially hard in a time rife with rumors, malicious gossip and so-called "fake news," which, through repeated exposure, have threatened to dismantle our very conception of what is "real." EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
The Kitchen (2019) Anne Cohen The Kitchen is very much its own scrappy little movie, clunky at times, but with a surprisingly gritty underbelly that feels oddly refreshing in a space that still overly sanitizes women's action scenes. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
() Natalie Gil Somehow, the team behind a new BBC Three documentary, Inside The Secret World Of Incels, managed to convince three self-described incels to share their stories on camera - and the results are disturbing. EDIT

Whitney Cummings: I'm Your Girlfriend (2016) Courtney E. Smith While Cummings makes compelling observations about her own behavior as a successful woman dating non-alpha males she falls short when she starts calling out other women for exploring their sexuality. Apparently, no one has told her that it's 2016. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Amy Schumer: Live From the Apollo (2015) Courtney E. Smith Props to Schumer for finding the humor in the bulls---. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Luce (2019) Anne Cohen The truth is that life isn't a single-issue journey; it's messy, and complicated, and Luce goes a long way in depicting that. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Valley of the Dolls (1967) Anne Cohen A must-watch even if the movie had nothing else going for it, which happily, it does. EDIT
Posted Jul 22, 2019
The Lion King (2019) Anne Cohen But even with the updated dialogue and jokes about "local" produce, the result still feels less magical without the original's dynamic spurts of originality and weirdness that allowed us to suspend our disbelief, and revel in the moment. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
The Farewell (2019) Anne Cohen What makes The Farewell so unbelievably moving is that, through that very specificity, it touches on fundamentally universal themes. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2019
Amy Schumer: The Leather Special (2017) Ariana Romero Packed with her signature blend of self-deprecation and graphic sex stories. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
Midsommar (2019) Rosie Knight Midsommar is an incredibly inventive, smart, and thoughtful horror film. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Ariana Romero Iron Man may be gone, but we're officially in good (if web-sticky) hands. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
Midsommar (2019) Anne Cohen The entire film feels like a slow descent into frenzied, ritualized madness - you don't realize what's happening until it's too late to stop it. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
Yesterday (2019) Anne Cohen It's a clever and interesting premise, but one that's wasted on this film... EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
Toy Story 4 (2019) Kaitlin Reilly Toy Story 4 is a straight-up sequel with all your favorites returning - if nostalgia is more your thing, you know what to do. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2019
Child's Play (2019) Kaitlin Reilly If you are the person who whispers to your friend "The robot revolution could happen," then you'll appreciate Child's Play's "the internet will kill us all!" attitude. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2019
Wild Rose (2018) Anne Cohen A dynamic, inspiring tale of setbacks and unexpected victories, set to a vibrant, raucous country soundtrack full of old classics and new original songs. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2019
Murder Mystery (2019) Anne Cohen The crime? A truly boring movie. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
Toy Story 4 (2019) Kelsea Stahler For the fourth outing from a group of cartoon characters who've been at it since 1995, it's a pretty decent ride. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019
Plus One (2019) Anne Cohen For all the laughs involved - and there are many - the strength of this film is the way it tackles loneliness in wedding guests. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
Men in Black: International (2019) Anne Cohen It all feels very formulaic. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
Late Night (2019) Anne Cohen It's hard to deny that the two are a joy to watch. Late Night is at its best when Kaling and Thompson are locked in a battle of wits. EDIT
Posted Jun 6, 2019
Dark Phoenix (2019) Anne Cohen It's a letdown. The script is clunky, the plot barely worth dwelling on, and the most compelling character development arcs belong to the wrong people. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2019
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002) Anne Cohen The Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood was a little ahead of its time... it dreamed big, floundered and eventually petered out, making way for better versions of itself. But that doesn't mean it wasn't important. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2019
Rocketman (2019) Anne Cohen Rocketman is a fun, poignant rhinestone of a movie that proves that a musical biopic can be a powerful force - if done right. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
The Perfection (2018) Anne Cohen Nothing about The Perfection is what you'd expect, which is what makes watching it such a weirdly thrilling experience. EDIT
