3.5/5 91% A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2019) Sara Bolger is a vibrant presence, but this revenge drama spends too much time on the existential threat and not on the backstory of the woman at the center of the tale.‐ The Film Yap

3/5 89% Selah and the Spades (2020) A modern-day parable in which the pedestrian conflicts of high school are elevated to life-shattering events; gathers some interesting pieces but doesn't fit them together.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 70% Trolls World Tour (2020) The song playlist maybe isn't as good, but the story's actually got a little meat on its bones in this colorful, bright sequel that one-ups the original.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 46% Night Sweats (2019) Super low-budget but intriguing, this horror/whodunit about a mysterious disease spreading through the city seems especially well-timed to induce scares.‐ The Film Yap

2/5 60% Fire and Ice (1983) This animated fantasy from Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta is just a half-step above garbage, despite some cool elements.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 99% Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) Well-acted and observational, a road movie where the journey takes place as much in the soul as by location.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 60% Fritz the Cat (1972) For a movie that's largely remembered for being "the dirty animal cartoon," Fritz the Cat is also a surprisingly biting socioeconomic critique of 1960s counterculture. ‐ The Film Yap

3/5 56% Resistance (2020) A well-meaning but flat Holocaust drama that looks at the wartime activities of mime artist Marcel Marceau.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 No Score Yet Gli Invasori (The Invaders) (Erik the Conqueror) (Fury of the Vikings) (1961) It may be a cheap Italian-ish ripoff, but Erik the Conqueror has a cheesy DayGlo sort of charm.‐ The Film Yap

2.5/5 48% Greed (2020) What starts as an irreverent send-up of the billionaire class turns strangely angry and sad. Too bad it's less than the sum of its parts.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 No Score Yet Finding Hygge (2018) Finding Hygge is not just an engaging exploration of the Danish concept of feeling comfortable; it's truly medicine for the soul.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 88% Onward (2020) Disney/Pixar's latest is a cheerful, upbeat (and non-sequelized!) tale about two elves trying to rekindle the dead magic of the world. It's like an upbeat Dungeons & Dragons campaign.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 34% Seberg (2020) Kristen Stewart gives a nuanced, emotionally invested performance as the French New Wave icon who was the target of a vicious FBI campaign to destroy her.‐ The Film Yap

4.5/5 78% Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) The first three Indy movies involved 1) the Lost Ark of the Covenant, 2) Evil demon magic, and 3) the actual frickin' Holy Grail. To those who loudly pshawed at lead fridges and aliens, I pshaw right back.‐ The Film Yap

3/5 74% The Lodge (2020) Some creepy atmospherics, but this religious/psychological/horror thriller borrows a little much from The Shining.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 91% The Assistant (2020) A quietly unnerving portrait of harassment in the #MeToo era, as a young film studio assistant takes a stand against the unseen chairman.‐ The Film Yap

4.5/5 62% The Call of the Wild (2020) Get over the CGI dog, because this heartfelt family adventure boasts one of Harrison Ford's most sensitive and soulful performances.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 75% The Gentlemen (2020) A fun and fast-paced crime caper featuring a lot of cool dudes doing cool things; think Ocean's 11 with dickies.‐ The Film Yap

2/5 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) Old and busted, the Bad Boys can't summon up enough energy for even a tired "one last job" outing.‐ The Film Yap

3/5 65% Troop Zero (2020) This heartwarming Southern-fried dramedy has a lot going for it, but the pieces don't quite mesh.‐ The Film Yap
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2020
4/5 97% Breathless (1961) Breathless must have seemed amazing in 1960, a movie obsessed with youth and motion. The problem with youth is it doesn't last.‐ The Film Yap

3.5/5 21% Like a Boss (2020) A fun and frothy girl flick about two besties negotiating personal and professional challenges. Not terribly ambitious, but Tiffany Haddish has screen presence in gobs.‐ The Film Yap

4.5/5 89% 1917 (2020) 1917 is a film that you approach as a technical marvel and then are absorbed by its breathtaking humanity.‐ The Film Yap

3/5 50% Cruising (1980) Seen today, Cruising isn't the lurid gay-bashing pulp it was labeled at the time. But neither is it a particularly adept crime procedural. ‐ The Film Yap

4/5 95% Little Women (2019) A great-looking and emotional adaptation of the celebrated novel that suffers from a clunky narrative structure. I couldn't escape the feeling I was a tourist wandering through this story.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) A list of flaws as long as a lightsaber, but there's still plenty of majesty and power as Star Wars wraps up a 40-year saga.‐ The Film Yap
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2019
4/5 21% Cats (2019) The parts of Cats that work work really well, while many others don't. It's still kinda magical in a goofy sort of way.‐ The Film Yap

4/5 80% A Hidden Life (2019) Malick's most engaging film in years, a slow-moving but spiritual portrait of a man of conscious. Unspeakably gorgeous to gaze upon and listen to.‐ The Film Yap
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
4.5/5 70% Bombshell (2019) Bombshell may be a one-sided Hollywood takedown of hated Fox News, but it's as vibrant a depiction of the #MeToo movement as we've seen, with four great performances.‐ The Film Yap
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
2.5/5 67% The Andromeda Strain (1971) Though it's essentially the godfather of the outbreak disaster genre, The Andromeda Strain is a slow sci-fi procedural that hasn't aged well.‐ The Film Yap

Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
3/5 83% Waves (2019) Some lovely performances, but Waves is a classic example of movie where the filmmaker fell in love with his own shots. Overlong and poorly paced.‐ The Film Yap

4.5/5 76% Richard Jewell (2019) An ambitious and riveting attempt to lionize a man who was smeared for not looking or sounding like what a hero is supposed to.‐ The Film Yap
