4.5/5 The Kingmaker (2019) Stephen Silver A return to form for the filmmaker, as it shows she's honest enough to speak ill of her own subject. EDIT

4/5 The Report (2019) Stephen Silver An exciting and intriguing political thriller that concerns true events from not that long ago, and manages to keep things highly suspenseful EDIT

3/5 In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) Stephen Silver A deeply weird, but ultimately enjoyable mashup of several genres. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2019
4/5 Judy (2019) Stephen Silver A career-best performance from Renee Zellweger, the best screen treatment of Judy Garland's life to date, and the first awards bait of the fall to rise to the occasion. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
2.5/5 Villains (2019) Stephen Silver Offers four strong performances, but not much else. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
1.5/5 The Goldfinch (2019) Stephen Silver Unfocused, overlong, and plagued by jarring shifts in tone. This wildly ambitious literary adaptation is a big whiff. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
3/5 Satanic Panic (2019) Stephen Silver A mostly entertaining effort that finds a decent balance between gory horror and laughs, even if it does succumb a bit to cliche. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2019
The Shape of Water (2017) Victor Stiff The Shape of Water is a story about love and its intractable desire to touch us all, humans and monsters alike EDIT

Mr. Soul! (2018) Victor Stiff [Mr. Soul!] highlights black excellence and champions equality, tolerance and inclusion ... that it manages to be funny, charming, and uplifting is icing on the cake. EDIT

United We Fan (2018) Victor Stiff If you ever had an intense love for a TV series, a video game, or even a YouTube channel, you'll see part of yourself represented in this film. EDIT

The Crescent (2017) Chelsea Phillips-Carr This slow-burn horror film is never entirely successful. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Caniba (2017) Chelsea Phillips-Carr Perhaps it is shocking to watch, but Caniba has little to it beyond that shock value EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Laissez bronzer les cadavres (2017) Chelsea Phillips-Carr In its speedy pastiche and unending energy, Let the Corpses Tan is like a caffeine-induced panic attack rather than the high-speed and engaging film it should be. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Vampire Clay (2017) Chelsea Phillips-Carr It may not stick in ones mind after the end of its 81 minute runtime, but it would be hard to not enjoy oneself while watching. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Indivisible (2016) Chelsea Phillips-Carr Indivisibili wastes the Fontana's natural acting talent for a work of pure fetishism. Poorly shot on top of that, de Angelis' film has very little to offer. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Gerald's Game (2017) Chelsea Phillips-Carr Departing from Jessie's subjectivity, Gerald's Game ends too easily, a contrived and reductive conclusion which departs from the perspective that made the film original, engaging, and meaningful. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017) Chelsea Phillips-Carr With a central thesis unable to fully grapple with her beauty and her intelligence, it ultimately fails to fully create a narrative of a woman who was more than her beauty, and more than brains-despite-her-beauty. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Black Creek (2017) Chelsea Phillips-Carr Black Creek is unwatchable. It is a film with the appeal of a damp sock. EDIT
