3 From Hell (2019) Quinton Roberts As a movie, it is exactly what I expected when going into a Rob Zombie film which I know is controversial for many, but satisfying to the right viewer. I enjoyed the movie enough to say I had fun and was glad to see it in theaters. EDIT

The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019) Kevin Shanks The Art of Racing in the Rain is a movie that will stir emotion. Milo Ventimiglia and Amanda Seyfried should be applauded for their acting but Kevin Costner steals the show Enzo the dog's voice. EDIT

Ready or Not (2019) Josh Davis While Ready or Not ultimately is a horror movie, its best when it leans into black comedy. A few surprising twists in the final 15 minutes help differentiate it from 9,000-or-so other thrillers about pretty women covered in blood & running for their lives EDIT

Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein (2019) Quinton Roberts To say this was a waste of film would be wrong, but also right because it doesn't strive to be the best of the best. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2019
Lying and Stealing (2019) Melissa Sloter The thrill of seeing good thieves at work, combined with the leads' chemistry and the tension building score, make for an enjoyable, if shallow, film experience. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2019
Saving Zoë (2019) Melissa Sloter Unlike in some dead girl stories, we do get Zoë's perspective of events but the film, based on the novel of the same name by Alyson Noel, sticks close to the formula throughout. EDIT

Point Blank (2019) Joe Stark You can see the beats coming from a mile away in this movie, but just like it says in the film, it doesn't have to be perfect just believable. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2019
Midsommar (2019) Stephanie Chapman This film attempts to tackle too many serious topics while giving the audience a memorable horror experience (and I cannot be sure it is even providing good horror)" EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2019
Clara (2018) Melissa Sloter The leads' romantic trajectory mirrors the film's scientific plot in a way that may not always feel organic but doesn't detract from the film's charm. EDIT

Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Stephanie Chapman In this latest movie in the MCU (directed by Jon Watt), Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) is living in a post "Endgame" world, which is proving to be more difficult than he anticipated. EDIT

Anna (2019) Stephanie Chapman The movie suffers from an absurd number of time jumps (I counted no less than 6 in the film) and an inconsistent narrative. It's not sure what story it wants to tell. EDIT

The Dead Don't Die (2019) Michael Winkler If you're someone that values good acting, oddball humor, decent makeup effects, odd plot points, good score, and far off twists, "The Dead Don't Die" is well worth seeing. EDIT

Late Night (2019) Brooke Daugherty Emma Thompson gives an incredible performance from comedic timing to emotional sequences. Mindy Kaling may be a comedy phenom, but she moves the audience with her performance. EDIT
Posted Jun 23, 2019
I Am Mother (2019) Melissa Sloter The joy of director Grant Sputore's debut lies less in the actual plot than in the breakout performance by Clara Rugaard, the affecting work of Hilary Swank, and the ideas the film plants in the mind of the viewer for further examination. EDIT
