70% Jumbo (2020) You may love it or you may be a little mixed, but I doubt you'll regret taking the ride.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

44% Falling (2020) This is simply a difficult film to watch, much less recommend.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

100% The Painter and the Thief (2020) As a doc, it feels like the kind of story you only find in movies. I believed what the film showed me, but it wasn't always easy.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

72% The Gentlemen (2020) That structure gives Ritchie license to play with chronology and tangents from time to time, but overall he keeps things pretty tight. That old style is still there but appropriately toned down a bit with Ritchie's age.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) By the end, the whole endeavor wears out its welcome and the empty calories become more obnoxious than just apparent and benign.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

98% 63 Up (2019) I'll never stop instantly running out to catch the next installment.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

37% 6 Underground (2019) 6 Underground is too incomprehensible to be fun and too mean to be likable.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

91% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Very good and worth your time, particularly if you are lucky enough to see it on the big screen.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

26% Gemini Man (2019) In 2019, the idea of an entire movie built around the premise of Will Smith vs a younger Will Smith is not as interesting as this film thinks.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

81% VHYes (2020) The comedy here is high enough that simply being funny would have been enough, but VHYes strives for meaning as well, which is what makes the film such a special delight.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet Amigo (2019) Amigo offers an interesting look at paranoia aided by a strong performance from Botet.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

63% It Chapter Two (2019) I found myself both thrilled and emotionally tethered to these characters in ways that eluded me for most of the running time. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

39% Angel Has Fallen (2019) We have something slightly more generic saved by Nick Nolte of all people..‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2019
100% Blood on Her Name (2019) Lind is great in the film. She plays Leigh's alternating iciness and warmth, as well as her many layers of tension and fear, very well, especially since she spends nearly the entire film lying to people.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2019
95% The Deeper You Dig (2019) The Deeper You Dig is just effective and interesting enough for audiences to happily let its rougher moments pass.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2019
89% Master Z: Ip Man Legacy (2019) The film manages to honor the original series' setting and themes while delivering a completely different type of martial arts film that is wholly entertaining all by itself.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2019
78% Extreme Job (2019) It's a feel good movie through and through.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2019
97% The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil (2019) A deftly made crime film with the added bonus of Ma Dong-seok.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2019
80% Dreamland (2019) While perhaps unsatisfying, there is a lot of pleasure to be found occasionally bubbling to the film's surface.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2019
67% Deadtectives (2019) It's not just that the film is unfunny, it is unfunny at an extremely high volume.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2019
100% Kill Ben Lyk (2018) Kill Ben Lyk offers a great dose of gnarly fun and ends on a punchline for the ages.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2019
45% Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back) (2018) It all comes together in a very easy going cinematic experience that will mildly please even the most demanding movie-goer.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2019
80% 7 Reasons to Run Away (From Society) (7 razones para huir (de la sociedad)) (2019) It looks good and is extremely well-acted, even though no one is doing any heavy lifting on any of those scores.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet 70 Big Ones (70 Binladens) (2019) 70 Binladens offers a thoughtfully-constructed and perfectly entertaining bank robbery drama, something I'm pretty much always happy to see.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

96% Harpoon (2019) The tension and gore tends to steamroll this concern and make it work regardless.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2019
No Score Yet Black Circle (2018) While I enjoyed the presentation and admired the world building attempted with such limited budget, this is also a cold experience with a finale that borders on incomprehensible and goes on far too long.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Godzilla: King of the Monsters is bad. It is just incredibly hard to enjoy.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted May 29, 2019
No Score Yet Deodato Holocaust (2019) There is a base standard of filmmaking quality not met by Deodato Holocaust.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

33% Domino (2019) There's basically no hope for the film to be anything other than extremely flawed.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted May 28, 2019
60% Godzilla Raids Again (1955) Godzilla Raids Again doesn't know the rules of being a Godzilla movie because many had not yet been invented. It creates a big one (the fights), but often goes off on its own, merry way, making it something of a charming gem.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

82% Avengement (2019) There's really no downside to this continued collaboration and the rate at which it blesses us.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted May 20, 2019
68% Triple Threat (2019) Triple Threat looks good. It sounds even better. The rarity of seeing this type of action film projected is unfortunate.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2019
98% The Farewell (2019) Awkwafina is amazing in everything, but she's especially good here in a lead role.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
93% The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) Joe Talbot's film is deep and important, and yet watching it is a breeze.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2019
52% Wounds (2019) Maybe Wounds doesn't all add up narratively, but I'll take that trade when the nightmare is this entertaining. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
94% Sweetheart (2019) J.D. Dillard and Blumhouse's Sweetheart offers a perfect example of greatness through simplicity.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
62% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) It is also surprisingly middle of the road, not quite thought through and even a little bit boring.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
94% Mike Wallace Is Here (2019) Wallace is an unknowable person, and this is about as close as we're ever going to get to him.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
83% Before You Know It (2019) It is a comedy first and foremost, one that never stopped blowing me away with its performances and great lines.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
93% Light from Light (2019) Whether anything supernatural occurs is beside the point because if it did, you'd hardly notice.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
80% The Amazing Johnathan Documentary (2019) Once the whole thing is wrapped up, the totality of the meta, fourth-wall breaking on display couldn't be more thorough.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
85% The Hole in the Ground (2019) The film is small, economic and - once the third act hits - actually cool.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
78% The Infiltrators (2019) Despite all its importance this is, at its core, almost a popcorn movie.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
73% Shooting the Mafia (2019) The film does, however, introduce us to a character of great interest.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
87% The Nightingale (2019) I respect the way Kent sets up a certain type of narrative only to subvert it in ways that look very close to confused filmmaking.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
74% The Death of Dick Long (2019) The Death of Dick Long may be something of a minor work, but it still is quite good, with a masterful third act reveal that recontextualizes everything you've seen in a way only brilliant writing can.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
55% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Zac Efron is simply electric. It's not just a great performance, but an exemplary comedy performance, which is even more impressive.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
78% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) It's more entertaining than reading a Wikipedia entry but nevertheless stays pretty bland throughout. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2019
82% Memory: The Origins of Alien (2019) There's an idiosyncrasy to Memory that warrants a viewing regardless of how well-versed you are in the material.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2019
27% Mortal Engines (2018) Breaks your heart by succumbing to tired YA tropes and an inflated running time that destroys all that surprise goodwill generated in the first half.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
