7/10 42% Blood and Money (2020) BLOOD AND MONEY isn't going to change your world. It's a familiar story, and it doesn't quite add anything new to this kind of cat and mouse feature. Yet Tom Berenger gives a solid show as a man placed in an impossible situation.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 52% Scoob! (2020) Perhaps the cuteness may be a deterrent for some, but if you're already a fan of these meddling kids, you'll likely be ready to get spooky with the Scooby Gang once again.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 57% Valley Girl (2020) This modern take ultimately feels like an unabashedly charm filled love letter to the first. It's a fun and energetic reminder of the crazy Eighties, and might be just the thing for those looking for sheer, unadulterated bitchin' musical entertainment.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

10/10 94% Beastie Boys Story (2020) BEASTIE BOYS STORY is a joy for moviegoers whether you're a fan of the band or not. It's a raw, intimate, engaging, expertly produced exploration of one of the most important rock/rap bands of the past few decades.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

8/10 78% True History of the Kelly Gang (2020) This is a smartly crafted tale with a little bit of a punk rock vibe - courtesy of its impressive soundtrack and style - brought to life by the outstanding work from both Davis and MacKay.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

8/10 41% Endings, Beginnings (2020) ... there is so much to admire that it's an easy recommendation for those looking for a not so typical romantic feature. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 70% Trolls World Tour (2020) TROLLS WORLD TOUR may lack some of the charm of the first film, yet it's so aggressively cheerful and bright that it's likely to be the perfect escape for all of the young ones currently trapped in isolation.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

1/10 9% Brahms: The Boy II (2020) While the actors desperately try to make something out of nothing, it's so terribly predictable and silly that audiences are more likely to have an occasional quiet chuckle than a scream - perhaps a more honest response is repeated yawning.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) It's certainly not perfect, but with a ton of bright spots - including an ode to Marilyn Monroe - BIRDS OF PREY manages to take flight near the end of the first act making for an engagingly giddy ride. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

4/10 12% The Turning (2020) It's a shame all that is good is watered down with odd editing choices, and a story that feels rushed, uneven and disjointed.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 90% Ip Man 4: The Finale (2019) If you are already invested in the IP MAN franchise, you'll be pleased with this last chapter.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

8/10 91% Clemency (2019) At a time when we are bombarded by Oscar talk, here's hoping that audiences will take notice of this intelligent drama.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

9/10 95% Little Women (2019) Greta Gerwig continues to prove what a talented and capable filmmaker she has become with this delightful take on the classic LITTLE WOMEN.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 57% The Curse of Buckout Road (2019) If you are going to be cursed by something, THE CURSE OF BUCKOUT ROAD will likely put a smile on your genre loving face.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

8/10 91% Togo (2019) Whether you are a dog lover or not, there is much to admire in this exciting and emotional real life drama.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

4/10 38% Black Christmas (2019) While not horrible, this is simply a lackluster and forced tale that happens to feature a few good performances.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 92% In Fabric (2019) If you like originality and perhaps a whole lot of insanity, this one is definitely worth the experience.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

4/10 51% Charlie's Angels (2019) ... these girls aren't bad, it's just a shame that the movie they're in just isn't very good.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 64% Paradise Hills (2019) PARADISE HILLS is a lush and occasionally provocative feature, one that creates a strange sense of wonder and weird.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

2/10 26% Countdown (2019) The story is a mess, the characters aren't very interesting and the actual face behind the spooky app looks more like a weird muppet. But if you love bad genre flicks, well I guess you might have more patience than I did.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

9/10 60% The Current War: Director's Cut (2019) Inspired by true events, THE CURRENT WAR is one of the most eye-popping and engaging features of the year, one that is well worth seeking out.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

9/10 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) By bringing Linda Hamilton back to this iconic role, Tim Miller has given us the most satisfying sequel since the powerhouse of Jim Cameron's T2.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

5/10 71% Low Tide (2019) LOW TIDE may have problems, but for a feature film debut for McMullin, there is promise of what he could do in the future.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
6/10 44% 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) 47 METERS DOWN: UNCAGED is better than it should be. What could have easily been a VOD release is slightly more engaging due to Roberts energetic filmmaking, and occasionally a decent scare.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2019
7/10 78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Scary Stories makes for a terrific introduction to serious horror for a young audience, yet it still packs enough spooky sights to entertain older genre fans.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

9/10 83% Crawl (2019) CRAWL is one of the best thrillers of the year. This fast paced man versus nature tale is filled with tension and it manages to do exactly what it sets out to do.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2019
9/10 63% Yesterday (2019) There is much to enjoy here, and if you don't take the story that seriously, you'll find a surprisingly sweet and touching celebration of the music that continues to gives fans joy.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

9/10 89% Rocketman (2019) This is one musical adventure that shoots for the stars, and succeeds on nearly every single level.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 55% Ma (2019) [Octavia] Spencer gives the role the perfect amount of twisted vulnerability to make her slightly sympathetic in the beginning. Yet once she goes off, she goes off in a satisfyingly vicious way.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted May 29, 2019
10/10 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) John Wick 3 is an ass-kicking, ramped-up thrill ride with amazing characters that continues to prove that director Stahelski and Reeves make a perfect cinematic partnership.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 38% El Chicano (2019) This is pure old school action, and if you miss the old Stallone flicks like COBRA or Bronson movies like DEATH WISH, you're likely to groove on this.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 82% Room for Rent (2019) If you go in realizing there will be a little less thriller and more straight forward melodrama, you'll have a much better time. Either way, see if for the marvelous work of Lin Shaye, and the lovely score by Joseph Bishara.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted May 2, 2019
9/10 71% Teen Spirit (2019) This is a heartfelt look at a lonely girl who learns to escape from her fears and frustrations with the power of song. And frankly, this is one of the rare times that pop music has felt meaningful and profoundly satisfying in a feature film.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2019
82% High Life (2019) If you want to take the dive, I wouldn't blame you. However, if you aren't a fan of heavily cerebral science fiction, you're not likely to engage in this journey on any level.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2019
9/10 89% Missing Link (2019) If you are looking for a great family film that is unique with a massive heart, you can't do much better than MISSING LINK.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

8/10 58% Pet Sematary (2019) Smartly written and directed with a quick pace and a few discomforting images, this return to the PET SEMATARY is certainly one worth taking.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

4/10 34% Wonder Park (2019) Frankly, there is very little actual wonder in this dull animated adventure.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 78% Captain Marvel (2019) CAPTAIN MARVEL may not be the most thrilling adventure in the MCU filmography, but it's likely to please a ton of fans looking for a little bit of empowerment and inspiration.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

4/10 42% The Prodigy (2019) This is just another generic studio horror film that will only manage to frighen those that are easily spooked.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
4/10 22% Miss Bala (2019) This is a forgettable remake that is only mildly enjoyable while you are watching it. For that hour and forty minutes or so I was slighly amused, but the second you leave the theatre you'll find that the movie won't leave much of an impression.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2019
8/10 64% St. Agatha (2019) In an age of smart horror, this is yet another example of taking a familiar horror trope and making it into something truly fresh and chill inducing.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

9/10 89% Arctic (2019) ARCTIC is a bold and powerful feature film debut for writer/director Joe Penna. The vastness of this world is explored beautifully, while still offering a foreboding sense of dread.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
6/10 89% The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING is an enjoyable children's fantasy. It has a ton of magic, and a terrific cast - if only the lovely and talented Ferguson had more to do.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network

7/10 73% On the Basis of Sex (2019) Felicity Jones is a perfect choice to play Justice Ginsberg, and she brings spirit and energy to her performance.‐ JoBlo's Movie Network
