3.5/5 80% Greyhound (2020) While the action scenes are tense, thrilling, and expertly crafted, the film suffers from a lack of depth to its characters and ultimately feels more like an epic docuseries recreation than an effective narrative film.‐ The Jam Report

3.5/5 88% Onward (2020) This could have been something truly mind-blowing. Instead, it ultimately feels far too safe and ordinary; qualities rarely associated with the work of Pixar's geniuses.‐ The Jam Report

3/5 63% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) While it serves up barely anything remotely original, there's enough silly fun within 'Sonic the Hedgehog' to prove the necessity of this video game adaptation.‐ The Jam Report

5/5 90% The Lighthouse (2019) A slow-burn descent into claustrophobic madness, 'The Lighthouse' is every bit as breathtaking as it is unsettling. It's that rare breed of film that can terrify as much as it can thrill.‐ The Jam Report

2/5 48% Underwater (2020) A film that rarely refuses to do little else but echo 'Alien' at practically every turn, 'Underwater' seemingly forgets to offer anything of its own. ‐ The Jam Report

3/5 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) The formula was laid down by its two predecessors and 'Bad Boys For Life' sticks the landing by following that recipe to a tee.‐ The Jam Report

4/5 77% Frozen II (2019) While 'Frozen II' may not quite reach the grand heights of its predecessor, it's still a sequel that demands repeat viewings, and that's not something one often hears these days.‐ The Jam Report

3/5 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) While 'Doctor Sleep' paves its own unique but muddled path to mixed results, there's enough fan service and nostalgic references to make fanboys of its predecessor wildly happy.‐ The Jam Report
