2/5 70% Butt Boy (2020) ...about as cheeky as a quarantined outhouse. Painfully contrived and methodically doltish, Butt Boy strives for its validation of absurd fanny fun but this comedic crapper definitely needs its behind spanked.‐ Flick Feast

4/5 94% System Crasher (Systemsprenger) (2019) ...startling and grippingly raw portrait of childhood monstrosity. Zengel's furious face is resourcefully inspired as her walking wounded minor is a major firecracker with atom bomb-like capabilities.‐ Flick Feast

4.5/5 99% Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) Solidly acted and restrained in its thought-provoking resonance, Hittman's quiet commentary on young female empowerment is tranquil and engaging in its message of disenchantment.‐ Flick Feast

3.5/5 75% The Captain (2019) ...[a] hair-raising, high-in-the-sky action thriller. Lau's action-adventure spectacle that feels as unapologetically loose and unrestrained as a defective seat belt.‐ Flick Feast

4/5 100% Stray (2018) Stray is simply contemplative and resoundingly lyrical in representing two kinds of nature set against one another: pained human nature and the Great Outdoors joined at the emotional hip ‐ Flick Feast

2/5 51% I Still Believe (2020) Although it aims to illustrate savory vibes of an uplifting higher power melodrama, from its pulpit the Erwin brothers simply muster up a sluggish Christian romancer that does not have a prayer.‐ The Critical Movie Critics

3.5/5 91% Banana Split (2020) ...[an] unconventionally perceptive and engaging coming-of-age female friendship/romancer. Inherently touching and liberating, Banana Split is an endearing account of cemented youthful female relations ‐ Flick Feast

2.5/5 56% The Hunt (2020) ...[a] shoddy survivalist exploitation flick...not grounded in depth or dimension to give this blurry slice-and-dice suspense piece any genuine meaty intrigue beyond its choppy pokes at exaggerated blood spats and occasional schlocky chuckles.‐ Flick Feast

4/5 84% The Way Back (2020) ...a golden three-point shot. Thoroughly convincing and hitting close to home. Both harrowing and heartfelt, The Way Back is definitely a slam dunk for Affleck‐ Flick Feast

2.5/5 48% Burden (2020) ...a compelling but seemingly trite tension tale. Redemption expositions are cozy and thought-provoking in concept but nicely wrapped feel-good fables such as Burden seem to be holding back the realness of its provoked outrage.‐ Flick Feast

4/5 90% Swallow (2020) Swallow certainly echoes the intricate tendencies of a feminine lost soul left to her hidden mental devices. Absorbing, contemplative and probing...low-key but potent in its dramatic portrait‐ Flick Feast

2.5/5 22% The Jesus Rolls (2020) However, The Jesus Rolls throws a gutterball down the farcical greasy lane in an unimaginative sex buddy road flick where the thin-layered juvenile raunchiness is a strikeout of the unwanted kind.‐ Flick Feast

2/5 38% Impractical Jokers: The Movie (2020) Ultimately, this cruel impractical joke is on all of us...is about as amusing as sitting on a whoppie cushion filled with chocolate filling. ‐ Flick Feast

1.5/5 10% Brahms: The Boy II (2020) Clearly, naughty Brahms from 2016's The Boy needed more of a supernatural spanking than he does a needless follow-up in a dull and creepy cornball sequel...the belabored subpar chills that aimlessly wallow in manufactured weirdness and waste.‐ Flick Feast

2.5/5 34% Seberg (2020) ...ambitious but thoroughly disjointed psychological thriller biopic . Both Stewart and her vulnerable inspiration Jean Seberg deserved a better deep dive than this tiptoe through the surfacing waves of despair and disillusionment.‐ Flick Feast

3.5/5 77% Buffaloed (2020) Wexler's bubbly blue-collar comedy Buffaloed is a wacky Valentine ode to the chilly upstate New York-based enclave. An unconventional character study that wants to reach for every nuanced nugget it sends out. ‐ Flick Feast

1.5/5 8% Fantasy Island (2020) What's next? Perhaps Love Boat with sea-sick passengers? How about Hotel with extra pushy guests? Or maybe Finders of Lost Loves with alarming divorce rates? [A] whimsical waste of a pointless reboot.‐ Flick Feast

2/5 37% Downhill (2020) The aptly entitled Downhill is a lackluster effort that dilutes the organic impishness of gifted comic performers in both Louis Dreyfus and Ferrell...an uninspired piece of snowbound sludge.‐ Flick Feast

3.5/5 86% Come to Daddy (2020) Thoroughly cringy and calculating, the calling card for Come to Daddy will make gagging to the peculiar whims of this welcoming warped B-movie blister a fine goosebump gem to consider with passing cynicism.‐ Flick Feast

3/4 91% The Assistant (2020) Solidly telling in its methodical truth, Green's film is unassumingly dazzling in its low-key observations. The Assistant is impressively potent without the overstated exclamation of acrimony.‐ The Critical Movie Critics

2.5/5 28% The Rhythm Section (2020) ...[a] drawn-out action drama in search of its staged contemplative mojo. Sadly, The Rhythm Section sings an all-too-familiar tune in terms of its labored "harried heroine seeking revenge mode".‐ Flick Feast

2/5 65% Gretel & Hansel (2020) ...a visually arresting but tepid tailspin. Evidently, Gretel and Hansel are not the only ones that are led astray among the whispery woods in this uninvolving fractured fairy tale.‐ Flick Feast

1.5/5 0% John Henry (2020) [a] half-baked, hedonistic inner city revenge thriller...registers with all the generic luster of a rusty sledgehammer. John Henry is hammered but not the preferred way you would expect‐ Flick Feast

1.5/5 17% Tyler Perry's A Fall from Grace (2020) ...transparent and turgid. A Fall From Grace is so much of a mockery that this cinematic cyst may have the moviemaker returning back to wearing Madea's saggy panties.‐ Flick Feast

2/5 21% Like a Boss (2020) [A] flat and flimsy premise deserving of an immediate pink slip. The monotonous Like a Boss drags out its cockeyed comedic conflict with all the originality and imagination of cherry-colored lip gloss.‐ Flick Feast

1.5/5 17% Playmobil: The Movie (2019) ...[a] synthetic and strained kiddie clunker...hoping to mix sentimentality with the trappings of a kid-friendly slapdash. Otherwise, the comical cliches and fuzzy forethought make for plastic-coated pap. ‐ Flick Feast

3.5/5 79% Jojo Rabbit (2019) Bold, offbeat and borderline blasphemous in its sardonic wit, Jojo Rabbit is at times uneven in its edgy humor, but still manages to pull off its fair share of mixing the absurdity with observational amusement.‐ The Critical Movie Critics

4/5 82% Queen & Slim (2019) Powerfully stimulating and contemplative, Matsoukas helms a thrilling on-the-run romancer engineered by its potency of affection, anger, affliction, and alienation. ‐ Flick Feast

4/5 88% Hala (2019) Sensitive and unsparing, Hala is a solid character study rooted in its perceptive skin. Thought-provoking and lyrical, Hala defines a certain type of referential glow that more teen girl-based dramas should follow with unshakable conviction.‐ Flick Feast

4/5 98% Working Woman (2019) Indeed, Working Woman is a timely film that echoes the chaotic contemporary times in which the perverse nature of the corruptible work-related politics/subculture has gone immorally awry.‐ Flick Feast

3.5/5 79% Scandalous: The Untold Story of the National Enquirer (2019) ...[a] rousing and chippy documentary. Scandalous: The Untold Story of the National Enquirer is inspired in its zany madness dedicated to appetizing trashy tidbits that adorn its preposterous pages.‐ Flick Feast

51% Charlie's Angels (2019) However, the so-called new and improved take feels like it is trying to flesh out its synthetic soul in an erratic, female empowerment blender of rambunctiousness that is all too familiar.‐ The Critical Movie Critics

4/5 63% The Good Liar (2019) It is a rare treat to see this seasoned tandem share the screen so compellingly. Smooth, calculating and involving, Mirren and McKellen seek the absolute truth of twists and trickery in The Good Liar.‐ Flick Feast
