7.5/10 88% Onward (2020) The story, characters and voice performances are strong...Like Inside Out, it's able to handle emotional issues in a resonant way that kids and adults can relate to.‐ Screen Junkies

8.1/10 92% The Invisible Man (2020) It taps into so many primal fears...More akin to a classic psychological thriller than the forgettable horror film that it could have been.‐ Screen Junkies

7.1/10 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Not quite as meta as Deadpool, but it has the same vibe.‐ Screen Junkies

6.5/10 70% Bombshell (2019) Although Bombshell does bring a lot of issues to the forefront, I liked the performances better than the movie.‐ Screen Junkies

8.5/10 92% Uncut Gems (2019) The Safdie Brothers have figured out how to make chaos a genre...An award-worthy performance from Adam Sandler.‐ Screen Junkies

4/10 21% Cats (2019) A spectacular disaster...This movie feels like a prank but I don't know on whom.‐ Screen Junkies

5/10 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) There seems to have been absolutely no road map as to what these movies were going to be and it shows.‐ Screen Junkies

6/10 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) A diminished version of the original, which doesn't make it unwatchable, but I do wish that there had been more risk and innovation.‐ Screen Junkies

7.8/10 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) Find a big screen with a great sound system...James Mangold may be one of the most underrated directors working today.‐ Screen Junkies

7/10 77% Frozen II (2019) There really does seem to be a desire to advance the story and build on the previous film, and that's what the best sequels do.‐ Screen Junkies

8/10 96% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Captures the spirit of Mr. Rogers - the spirit of kindness, his insight, and underneath it all, a really deep understanding of sorrow.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2019
8.8/10 94% Honey Boy (2019) The only thing that comes through every pore of this film's being is absolute raw and brutal honesty...One of the best movies of the year.‐ Screen Junkies

5/10 46% Last Christmas (2019) Last Christmas mostly works until it's overwhelmed by a bizarrely handled story and an overdose of forced, saccharine holiday cheer.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2019
8/10 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) The best of Kubrick and the best of King now exist together as a direct sequel - one leads directly into the other. A great hybrid of both.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2019
8.5/10 96% The Irishman (2019) This may end up being the quintessential film of late-era Martin Scorsese...One of the best movies of the year.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2019
6/10 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) I like this as an action movie, there's a lot of fun in it. As a Terminator fan, the franchise still ends at Terminator 2 for me.‐ Screen Junkies

4.5/10 26% Countdown (2019) Feels like a Mad Libs for what a horror movie can be...Completely and utterly forgettable.‐ Screen Junkies

8.1/10 99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) Parasite is a must-watch in order to get a full picture of the world cinema scene in 2019.‐ Screen Junkies

8/10 79% Jojo Rabbit (2019) Taika Waititi shows a very deft hand, both as a writer and a director...A hilarious movie, one of my favorites of the year so far.‐ Screen Junkies

5.3/10 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Angelina Jolie is great for what little she has to do in the movie. Michelle Pfeiffer has a lot to do, but not much of it is good.‐ Screen Junkies

7.2/10 91% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) It's not meant to reopen the book on Breaking Bad. It's meant to close it.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2019
4.8/10 26% Gemini Man (2019) At 24 frames per second, Gemini Man might be a passable action movie. At 120 frames per second, it's a distracting and empty technical exercise.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2019
7/10 68% Joker (2019) The less I think about Joker as a comic book movie, the more I like it. Joaquin Phoenix is brilliant...Grim, gritty, harsh, and disturbing. ‐ Screen Junkies

6.6/10 63% It Chapter Two (2019) Full of effective sequences in search of a story. A big step down from Chapter One. ‐ Screen Junkies

8/10 88% Ready or Not (2019) One of my favorite theater experiences of the year so far and may be, when I look back on the year, one of my favorite films of 2019.‐ Screen Junkies

7.1/10 80% Good Boys (2019) Good Boys is saved by a strong cast and several jokes that transcend what could've been a tired premise.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2019
5.3/10 78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Despite some masterful creepy touches, there's not quite enough scary to justify a tired story.‐ Screen Junkies

6.8/10 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Despite wearing out its welcome, Hobbs & Shaw succeeds on the back of some great action and a winning cast.‐ Screen Junkies

8.2/10 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) If this is indeed the later part of Tarantino's career, I like that he's taking the tools that he's employed in other movies and using them in interesting ways.‐ Screen Junkies

5.1/10 53% The Lion King (2019) On a technical level, Jon Favreau's doing some groundbreaking stuff. I don't think it adds anything to The Lion King...Even on its own, it drags.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
8/10 91% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Not just a fun movie, but a great summer movie. Big action, a great cast, some laughs, some thrills, and you can go see it again.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2019
7/10 83% Midsommar (2019) Messy, intense, and singular. There is no other movie out there like Midsommar...Cements Ari Aster as a director who I will go see, no matter what he does next.‐ Screen Junkies

8.5/10 97% Toy Story 4 (2019) Stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the other films in the Toy Story franchise. It's a great movie.‐ Screen Junkies

5/10 23% Men in Black International (2019) Almost like you asked a computer to make a summer blockbuster and Men in Black International came out on the other end...It's cinematic beige. ‐ Screen Junkies

4.2/10 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) A complete mess.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2019
8/10 89% Rocketman (2019) Combines the best parts of Bohemian Rhapsody, the best and worst parts of Elton John's life and a great directorial vision to create a really entertaining whole.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted May 31, 2019
5/10 55% Ma (2019) A great concept that needed more form and follow-through.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted May 29, 2019
5.2/10 42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Lost some of its pop and luster as the film went on...I wish it had worked better for me.‐ Screen Junkies

6.6/10 57% Brightburn (2019) Brightburn doesn't offer any surprises but it does deliver on its premise in an effective way.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted May 24, 2019
8.1/10 97% Booksmart (2019) One of those rare films that comes along every five years or so that genuinely has a chance at becoming the defining coming-of-age comedy for its generation.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted May 24, 2019
6.4/10 57% Aladdin (2019) Riffs enough on the original to not be a complete replica, but relies on it enough to not be a reinvention. It splits the difference in a way that largely works.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
4.5/10 51% The Sun Is Also a Star (2019) It's a very progressively intentioned film but I found a lot of its ideas about love and romance regressive.‐ Screen Junkies
Read More | Posted May 17, 2019
6.9/10 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The action is as spectacular as ever, but I do think that John Wick is showing signs of fatigue, both as a character and as a franchise.‐ Screen Junkies
