8/10 96% John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (2019) Beneath all the absurdity and manic humor, Mulaney peppers in occasional bursts of existential insight, where the biggest recurring topics are personal fears and the inescapable specter of death. Trust me, it's very funny.‐ Slashfilm

7/10 54% A Christmas Carol (2019) Those hoping to get into the Christmas spirit and come away feeling warm inside, touched by the power of kindness, might want to avoid A Christmas Carol.‐ Slashfilm

5/10 53% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) There's no spark; no joy; no life. If this truly is the end of the Skywalker Saga, what an ignoble end it is.‐ Slashfilm

9/10 90% 1917 (2020) One-take movies are nothing new, and 1917 ran a serious risk of being gimmicky. But Mendes, working with master cinematographer Roger Deakins, uses the single-take concept to fully enhance the narrative. ‐ Slashfilm

7/10 91% Hush (2016) Hush is quick and agile, and the script from Flanagan and Siegel always manages to be clever enough to be effective. Hush doesn't break new ground, but that doesn't mean it's not a bloody good time.‐ CutPrintFilm

5/10 51% 21 Bridges (2019) 21 Bridges is a yawn-inducing long night's journey into day, where a supposedly hotshot detective doesn't pick up on big twists we spot a mile away. ‐ Slashfilm

4/10 43% Midway (2019) When Emmerich's Independence Day, a movie about gooey aliens blowing up the White House as Will Smith cracks jokes, is more convincing than a true story like Midway, something is very wrong.‐ Slashfilm

8/10 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) Many filmmakers have adapted Stephen King, and a large amount of them neglect to zero in on what it is that makes the Master of Horror's work so special: his compassion. Mike Flanagan understands that, and so does Doctor Sleep. ‐ Slashfilm

7/10 60% The Current War: Director's Cut (2019) The Current War deserves its second chance, and it deserves to find an audience, however small that audience may be.‐ Slashfilm

5/10 26% Gemini Man (2019) The end result is more video game than movie.‐ Slashfilm

10/10 96% The Irishman (2019) This is not Goodfellas. This is not Casino. This is Scorsese at his most reflective, crafting a masterwork that finds the filmmaker reflecting on everything he's done, and what it's all amounted to. The results are breathtaking.‐ Slashfilm

7.5/10 No Score Yet Night Has Come (2019) If Terrence Malick and Franz Kafka decided to get married, and then adopted an old wooden crate full of reels of stock footage as their baby, that offspring would look something like Night Has Come. ‐ Slashfilm

7.5/10 52% The Golden Glove (Der goldene handschuh) (2019) Fatih Akin's The Golden Glove is the rawest, most real, and most brutal serial killer movie since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.‐ Slashfilm

9/10 95% Marriage Story (2019) The fate of the film rests fully in Driver and Johansson's hands, and both actors are more than up for the challenge, turning in career-best work.‐ Slashfilm

6.5/10 86% Color Out of Space (2020) The prospect of Cage uniting with such a fascinating director as Stanely is too intriguing to pass up. But is the end result actually worthwhile? ‐ Slashfilm

8/10 63% It Chapter Two (2019) For all its clumsy storytelling faults, here is a movie that faithfully understands what makes Stephen King's prose so powerful.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
8/10 88% Ready or Not (2019) The script is never as clever as it could be, but that's not an issue. Situations like this sometimes call for the blunt force trauma of a sledgehammer blow rather than a light elbow nudge to the ribs.‐ Slashfilm

7/10 83% Crawl (2019) It's a lean, mean, mostly efficient machine - when it's focusing on gator gore.‐ Slashfilm

4.5/10 63% Child's Play (2019) If it's killer doll thrills you seek, stick with the original Child's Play, and put this lackluster remake back on the shelf.‐ Slashfilm

9.5/10 83% Midsommar (2019) Aster's latest, the folk-horror extravaganza Midsommar, is unquestionably a scary movie. And yet, it's also surprisingly hilarious.‐ Slashfilm
