2/4 68% Extraction (2020) Hemsworth plays a hardened and haunted mercenary (is there another kind?) who is hired to "extract" the son of a Bangladeshi drug lord who has been kidnapped by his rival. That's the entire narrative of the story.‐ AwardsWatch

2/4 100% A Secret Love (2020) A Secret Love still manages to tug at every single heartstring. Pat and Terry had a legitimate love story, one for the ages, and it's one we all should experience, in all its tenderness and fortitude.‐ AwardsWatch

2.5/5 38% Wendy (2020) The film does work best when immersed in its own fantastical filmmaking, when the visual storytelling, combined with the simmering and evocative score by Dan Romer, take you back to the wonder of childhood imagination...‐ AwardsWatch

1/4 28% The Rhythm Section (2020) ...what begins as a commentary on the depths grief can plunge you and what lengths you would go to dig yourself out turns into a seen-it-a-million-times action movie with a logic-deprived plot and a hero who is a stranger.‐ AwardsWatch

3/4 83% Cold Case Hammarskjöld (2019) The story is chock full of colorful characters (other than Brügger) and suspense, as Brügger builds the tale to a climax that turns out to be quite shattering.‐ AwardsWatch

2/4 65% The Sound of Silence (2019) In an age where so many things are overdone, overblown and overwrought, it's nice to have such a simple, quiet movie about a totally relatable and universal human experience.‐ AwardsWatch

2/4 100% Anne at 13,000 ft (2020) Campbell's delicately nuanced and textured performance is the centerpiece of Anne at 13,000 ft, a film that may not have the greatest style, but certainly has a resonance that will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.‐ AwardsWatch

2/4 83% Love Me Tender (2019) Seconda's journey and Giordano's indelible and hilariously heartbreaking performance are more than enough to overcome the film's uncomfortable moments.‐ AwardsWatch

3/4 82% The Report (2019) The Report is a somewhat conflicted movie about a somewhat conflicted piece of American history, but, despite is dryness and occasional roaring off track, the essence is compelling.‐ AwardsWatch

2/4 48% Greed (2020) ...despite the targets being so low and so big, Greed somehow still misses the mark, as it tries to do-and say-a bit too much.‐ AwardsWatch

3/4 96% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) LeBeouf's casting was inspired, because his chemistry with Gottsagen lights up the screen and LeBeouf, who has always been a good actor who made bad choices, gets the chance to really show what he can do.‐ AwardsWatch

2.5/4 78% Captain Marvel (2019) Captain Marvel is an enjoyable escapist movie that happens to check all the boxes for a modern progressive audience and delivers humor and action in an easy to watch, slickly-made package that maybe even the fanboys might like.‐ AwardsWatch

2/5 82% Long Shot (2019) ...despite the clunky, unimaginative script and the by-the-numbers direction, Long Shot is saved by the exact gimmick that probably green-lit it in the first place: Theron and Rogen.‐ AwardsWatch

1/4 41% Vita & Virginia (2019) Vita & Virginia just can't overcome its faults and succumbs to being another well-made period piece that misses its mark.‐ AwardsWatch

4/4 89% Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice (2019) Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice is wholly a tribute to a performer, an artist and a pioneer whose story is as textured and interesting as the songs she sings. ‐ AwardsWatch

3/4 97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Has Murphy reinvented himself again? No, it's more like he has finally found a way to combine all his previous chapters into one epic book. Don't call it a comeback, call it a climax.‐ AwardsWatch

98% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2020) Nothing ever stays happy for long, at least not usually for young women in the 1700s, but Portrait of a Lady on Fire finds so many ways to show us these women as people and not stock figures of their time. ‐ AwardsWatch

4/4 80% A Hidden Life (2019) It's all incredibly deep and poetic, and I would expect nothing less from a Malick film. August Diehl's performance as Franz is utterly shattering, as he embodies the conflict and the serenity of a man of faith and morality.‐ AwardsWatch

2/4 34% Seberg (2020) When you have Kristen Stewart playing a famously contradictory and motivationally elusive character, you really shouldn't put her in the background and make her wallpaper to your silly FBI story. ‐ AwardsWatch
