40% Capone (2020) Like it or not, CAPONE isn't a film that can be easily dismissed. Self-indulgent to the extreme, it's still oddly compelling. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

20% Coffee & Kareem (2020) Basically an R-rated redux of COP & A HALF, but worth watching for a hilariously unhinged Betty Gilpin.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2020

Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2020

Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2020
36% The Night Clerk (2020) The performances are good but THE NIGHT CLERK is ultimately pedestrian and rather dull. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2020
85% Standing Up, Falling Down (2020) Billy Crystal is terrific even if the film is a little formulaic. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2020
8% Fantasy Island (2020) It's quick and cheap and won't ruin anyone's career, but it's ultimately disposable fluff. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2020
81% VFW (2020) It's a lot of fun to see Lang, Sadler, Williamson and Kove front-and-center in this gory horror-action hybrid. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2020
64% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Enjoyable and well-cast, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG may prove to be the start of a very profitable new franchise for Paramount, although hopefully future sequels are a touch more adventurous in their choice of setting. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

92% Leap of Faith (2019) While some of the stories have been told elsewhere, you get the feeling here that Friedkin's truly an open book and relishing the opportunity to dig into his work nearly fifty years after the fact. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2020
93% Possessor (2020) A gory, thoroughly entertaining sci-fi flick with a great premise and two killer lead performances. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2020

Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2020
91% The Assistant (2020) A troubling day in the life of an assistant working for a Weinstein-like boss. Has a lot to say about both the culture of abuse and the enabling that allows toxic men like this to consistently get away with their crimes. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
