No Score Yet Cavale (2019) "Cavale" is an imperfect film, but it's evidence that Gourmel will be a filmmaker to watch.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% To Kid or Not to Kid (2019) The film wanders a bit in that exploration, lacking a structure that might make it more effective in having the conversation, but there's value in broaching the topic.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Everybody's Everything (2019) Devotees will appreciate a different look at their fallen idol, while those who aren't familiar with his music might find the film a bit long at nearly two hours but will see what the appeal was to those who loved him.‐ Los Angeles Times

C- 47% Last Christmas (2019) Readymade to play on an endless loop on Freeform's 25 Days of Christmas ... Last Christmas is as flimsy and disposable as holiday wrapping paper with just as much substance.‐ The Playlist

C- 53% Charlie's Angels (2019) Charlie's Angels struts proudly in the heeled footsteps of the '70s TV show and the McG movies of the early-2000s, offering the same silly, sexy, and utterly forgettable action.‐ The Playlist

No Score Yet Disco'd (2019) While "Disco'd" is an unvarnished, moving look at the lives affected by the rising crisis of homelessness, it could have used a bit more polish and structure in telling these stories.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet Love Is Blind (2019) Shot by Whitebloom, "Love Is Blind" bursts with saturated colors and well-framed shots, but it's simply a layer of artifice that can't distract from the shoddy script.‐ Los Angeles Times

70% Cubby (2019) Directors Mark Blane and Ben Mankoff bring a kinky sweetness to this oddball dramedy, but audience's appetites for it will depend on their patience with its lead character.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet The Portal (2019) If you weren't already meditating, you're unlikely to care enough to listen to the inevitable closing call to action.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2019
No Score Yet Ximei (2019) The documentary isn't a dour investigation of corruption - though the subject certainly merits it - instead placing Ximei and her kindness at its heart for an even more moving, effective story of resilience.‐ Los Angeles Times

25% Countdown (2019) This isn't a subtle, moody film filled with a sense of unease; instead, jump scares are around every corner. If that's all you want from a horror movie, you'll have a very good time - and an elevated heart rate for its speedy 90 minutes.‐ Los Angeles Times

50% Wallflower (2019) "Wallflower" doesn't offer much insight into the mind of the unnamed killer, but it also doesn't seem concerned with diving into his unknown motive either.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2019
90% The Elephant Queen (2019) From intimate shots beneath the feet of the giant beasts to underground footage, directors Stone and Deeble have made a movie that leaves viewers as much in awe of the animals as of the filmmakers' ability to capture remarkable moments.‐ Los Angeles Times

11% Jexi (2019) Lucas and Moore's film is filled with bugs, making it easy to unplug from its attempts to entertain and do literally anything else.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2019
84% Villains (2019) Berk and Olsen's script only skims the surface of what is really going on here, and yet "Villains" remains a delightfully slick dip in the shallow end of the pool.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
No Score Yet Birds without Feathers (2019) McColm and Day show promise as filmmakers, even if not everyone will be into their off-kilter look at the world.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019
30% Can You Keep a Secret? (2019) Characters behave nonsensically in Peter Hutchings' script, and each laugh they get feels like they stumbled into it.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
45% Seeds (2019) Its central metaphor of a figurative monster turning into a real one is interesting, but it quickly sheds its power as it sexualizes Lily, making her complicit rather than the victim.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
56% Scarborough (2019) "Scaborough" doesn't try to shock audiences, but its attempt at a surprise is sadly predictable.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
87% Depraved (2019) "Depraved" is smart in its commentary on everything from the evils of the pharmaceuticals industry to the terrors of PTSD, but there's real heart and empathy here too. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
85% The Weekend (2019) It drags a bit at times, especially as it winds down, but it remains a film you want to spend more time with.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
B+ 81% Sea Fever (2019) Sea Fever is a deft melding of genres, bringing together body horror, the monster movie, and ecology-driven drama in a single, well-crafted package.‐ The Playlist

71% Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! (2019) Like its predecessor, "Super Size Me 2" is largely entertaining, with audience enjoyment varying on their appetite for Spurlock's fun, smug shtick.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2019
No Score Yet Next Level (2019) This teen musical comedy is set at a girls performing arts camp, but it never convinces the audience of anyone's talent.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2019
50% Overcomer (2019) Kendrick's film eventually finds its legs in the final stretch, with an emotionally effective conclusion that might persuade even the cynics to its cause.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2019
61% Driven (2019) The shifts in tone generally work, and credit is also due these characters and the performances behind them.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2019
No Score Yet South Central Love (2019) "South Central Love" tries to deal with heavy issues with grace, but its clumsiness undercuts its message.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2019
B+ 79% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) PG-13 terror is a smart, exhilarating adaptation that stays true to the storytelling spirit of the series while expertly evolving it to the medium of film.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2019
55% Piranhas (La paranza dei bambini) (2019) This drama isn't as masterful as "Gomorrah" but the handheld camerawork and spare use of score suck us into the crimes, all the more chilling due to the age of their perpetrators.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2019
C- 22% The Kitchen (2019) The Kitchen provides little sizzle beyond its central conceit, thanks largely to clumsy editing.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2019
26% Otherhood (2019) [W]atching "Otherhood" leaves audiences feeling secondhand embarrassment, not only for everyone's cringe-worthy behavior on screen but also for these lauded actresses who both starred in and executive produced this subpar film.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Kings of Beer (2019) Directed by Sean Mullin, this is 83 minutes of marketing for mega-brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev, but it's made with enough skill that it might bring some former fans back to the fold.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
100% American Heretics: The Politics of the Gospel (2019) [T]he documentary... doesn't just look at the current situation and the entanglement of government and religion; it illuminates the origins of their relationship with insight, as well as centering on a single state: Oklahoma.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2019
No Score Yet Be Happy! (2019) Outside of a shocking moment of casual racism, "Be Happy!" is as earnest and genial as its title suggests. However, repetitive lyrics, nonsensical camera angles and incomprehensible edits will leave viewers feeling anything but positive.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2019
B+ 94% Mike Wallace Is Here (2019) Even Mike Wallace Is Here doesn't fully separate entertainment and news; this is often an insightful film, but it's full of delights for journalism, history, and political junkies alike‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2019
B+ 90% Always Be My Maybe (2019) This literal LOL-filled film from sitcom showrunner Nahnatchka Khan doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it does provide a genuinely sweet, truly funny film that is sure to be watched and rewatched on many Saturday afternoons on the couch in pajamas.‐ The Playlist

30% Girls with Balls (2019) This is a deranged nightmare of wildness, as full of laughs as it is arterial sprays. It won't be everyone's cup of thé, but its joyously vulgar title probably deters those likely detractors anyway.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2019
60% Chain of Death (2019) Genre fans will be happy to see Barbeau and Wise, as well as the brief but gasp-inducing moments of gore. But it's laughably bad, leaving audiences to giggle while wondering if they're sharing in Mike's hallucinations or this crazy movie actually exists.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2019
69% Bottom of the 9th (2019) Odd camera angles and movement make the movie feel like it was directed by a less-seasoned filmmaker, and the script from Robert Bruzio has more fat than would be allowed in a pro athlete's diet.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2019
40% Miss Arizona (2019) The well-intentioned comedy never fully comes together to make a cohesive film, but there are glimpses of something interesting amidst its flaws.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2019
69% Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable (2019) [E]ven someone who knows nothing about surfing can't help but sit mouth agape at Hamilton's athleticism, optimism and determination.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2019
67% Skin in the Game (2019) There's little development as it puts them (characters) through hell, focusing more on the issue than on the people experiencing it.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2019
60% Ask for Jane (2019) Writer-director Rachel Carey's film is effective in its depiction of a pre-Roe vs. Wade America and its horrors for women, despite its often-clumsy script and amateur production values.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
60% Round of Your Life (2019) Director Dylan Thomas Ellis has made a gentle, inoffensive film that preaches as much about the power of prayer as the dangers of texting and driving.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2019
67% Into the Mirror (2019) Lois Stevenson's directorial debut displays an impressive visual style that marks her as a talent to watch. Unfortunately, the script from its stars lets the look of this British drama do all the work.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2019
92% The Feeling of Being Watched (2018) Expanding its scope beyond Bridgeview and Islamophobia, it looks at the larger question of how the United States government has targeted minority groups throughout its history.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2019
90% Plus One (2019) "Plus One" might be a romcom squarely from the dude's point of view, but Erskine is the real breakout star here. She's raunchy and funny, giving the film a loose, wild feeling in its best moments, though it's too often predictable in its larger beats.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% For the Birds (2019) While the documentary evolves in its scope, Miron's feature debut always remains evenhanded. "For the Birds" is kind to its subject, while recognizing the harm she's inadvertently doing.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2019
89% American Woman (2019) Emotional highs and lows are nicely balanced by small moments of humor, though the tone wobbles a bit.‐ Los Angeles Times

79% Free Trip to Egypt (2019) There's nothing particularly sophisticated about the filmmaking in "Free Trip to Egypt," but first-time feature director Ingrid Serban succeeds in telling a simple story in a simple fashion, and it's an effectively moving effort.‐ Los Angeles Times
