4/5 81% The Assistant (2020) Accurately portrays the weighty emotional toll that stems from knowing something isn't quite right, but you are powerless to do anything about it.‐ Screen Zealots

4/5 No Score Yet Dinner in America (2020) This punk rock love song of two misfits is an adrenaline-fueled exercise in cinematic anarchy, and I loved every minute of it.‐ Screen Zealots

2/5 84% The Perfect Candidate (2019) Sluggish storytelling aside, it's impossible not to root for the heroine of the story to succeed when she's challenging the patriarchy of a society that continues to marginalize women. Too bad the rest of the film is a stagnant bore.‐ Screen Zealots

4/5 64% Summertime (2020) Unmasks the impassioned cries of hope and frustration from a young generation through their urban spoken word poetry, and it's as inspiring as it is complicated.‐ Screen Zealots

4/5 81% A Hidden Life (2019) Perhaps this is what the devout refer to as a "religious experience;" I am not a spiritual person, but the beauty of this film moved me.‐ Screen Zealots

3/5 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) There are a couple of show-stopping action sequences, but fans should prepare to see a softer, gentler side of the original bad boys.‐ Screen Zealots

3/5 89% Arctic (2019) Cerebral in its own way, with a purposely vague story that rewards the thoughtful viewer.‐ Screen Zealots

2/5 20% Like a Boss (2020) A barely tolerable movie that is perfectly acceptable for a mindless girls' night out; emphasis on the "mindless." ‐ Screen Zealots

3.5/5 89% 1917 (2020) It's hard not to get stuck on the challenges of the moviemaking rather than the characters that should be the focal point of the film.‐ Screen Zealots

4/5 97% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2020) An impeccably detailed, beautifully acted, refined drama with a strong feminist angle that's as stirring as it is thought-provoking.‐ Screen Zealots

3/5 92% Uncut Gems (2019) Uncut Gems is good but far from great, an exhausting repetition of watching a sleazy scumbag spiraling out of control by digging himself deeper into a hole.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2020
2.5/5 82% The Report (2019) A film that's sure to spur a debate about the necessity for efficient checks and balances within our own government.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2020
3/5 74% Richard Jewell (2019) Heavily slanted towards conservative propaganda, but Richard Jewell is a decently crafted and entertaining movie about a man society chewed up, spit out, and promptly forgot.‐ Screen Zealots

2/5 20% Cats (2019) Sometimes a movie struts its awfulness with such glee that it almost becomes an enjoyably sadistic pleasure rather than a chore to watch.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2020
3.5/5 85% Les Misérables (2020) An authentic, eye-opening look at timely, explosive social issues rocking not only France, but the rest of the world as well.‐ Screen Zealots

2/5 83% Waves (2019) Deeply meaningful themes fall by the wayside in this incredibly boring melodrama.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 30, 2019
2/5 95% Little Women (2019) Anyone sentimental about the original source material should prepare for disappointment.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2019
2.5/5 100% Knock Down the House (2019) An average documentary that will inspire, anger, and perhaps even motivate viewers to change the world.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2019
2/5 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) For every gasp-inducing jolt and hold-for-tears touching moment, a sense of betrayal almost always follows.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 26, 2019
2/5 33% Only (2019) One of those stories that's guaranteed to elicit strong reactions that will likely be split along gender lines.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2019
3.5/5 69% Bombshell (2019) An uncomfortable but empowering movie to watch, but nearly two hours are spent preaching loudly to the liberal choir.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2019
4.5/5 93% Honey Boy (2019) A heartbreaking, soul cleansing film that delivers a knock-out emotional blow. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
4/5 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) A fast-paced adventure sequel that's packed with action, laughs, and the idea that friendship can foster a family. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2019
3/5 64% The Good Liar (2019) It's great to see a strong older woman character starring in a female-driven story, and those looking for an adult drama will find just enough to like. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2019
4/5 96% The Irishman (2019) In a film packed with star turns, Joe Pesci absolutely runs away with the entire movie.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2019
2/5 95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Creepy performances, a mediocre story, reliance on nostalgia, and disinterested direction turn this mess into a flop almost as soon as the opening credits begin.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
3.5/5 95% Marriage Story (2019) The film is stacked with award-worthy performances at every turn, but this is Adam Driver's pièce de résistance.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
3/5 61% The Current War: Director's Cut (2019) A compelling tug of war story that remains engaging due to the film's visual style and the strong performances from the lead actors.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2019
3/5 84% Just Mercy (2020) Delivers a message on the racial bias and economic inequality that plagues the U.S. justice system with a dedication and intensity that doesn't present as overly confrontational.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2019
3.5/5 97% Knives Out (2019) This film is not as clever as it thinks it is, but is highly entertaining -- if not entirely satisfying.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 25, 2019
2/5 77% Frozen II (2019) Even the dazzling animation can't make up for what's lacking, including the absence of an instant hit song, dry voice performances, and a mediocre story.‐ Screen Zealots

1.5/5 62% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) I'll stop short at calling it embarrassing, but the line hovers mere inches away. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2019
2/5 50% Wallflower (2019) What's so disturbing about Wallflower isn't the subject matter, but that few likely remember this incident because mass shootings are now so commonplace in our country.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2019
2/5 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) A feminist-slanted almost-turd that's been given a sparkly new sheen from a bit of the ol' Hollywood polish.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2019
2.5/5 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) Ford v Ferrari is a too-straightforward retelling of history that's too mainstream, too dull, and squanders a considerable opportunity.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2019
4/5 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) One of the better movies of the year, and should be embraced as a modern instant classic by fans of The Shining.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2019
1.5/5 46% Last Christmas (2019) You'd be better off asking Santa for a lump of coal in your stocking than wasting money on this mess of a movie.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2019
1.5/5 44% Midway (2019) After viewing this film, I can't decide which is worse: the directing, the screenplay, or the acting. It's a trifecta of mediocrity. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2019
4.5/5 99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) One of the most intriguing, intelligent, and disturbing films of the year.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2019
2/5 80% Jojo Rabbit (2019) This could've been something truly special if Waititi didn't insist on spending the majority of his time winking at the audience. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2019
3.5/5 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Delivers what fans want by continuing the tradition made famous by the series: cutting edge sci-fi effects, first class action, and badass heroines.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2019
4/5 91% The Lighthouse (2019) Lands squarely on the ideal side of weird and, although often maddening to watch, it happily never sinks to the most irritating levels of cinematic pretension that often suffocates most art house fare. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2019
3/5 97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Rudy Ray Moore was a true pioneer of the Blaxploitation genre. He knew what people wanted and gave it to them, much like this easy-to-swallow Netflix original film.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2019
3.5/5 22% Lucy in the Sky (2019) Part art house film and part true crime tabloid serial, the jumbled, wacky, true story is perfectly conveyed through this suitably oddball movie. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
3/5 67% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) It may not be flush with innovation, but Zombieland: Double Tap is an enjoyable reunion that revives the irreverent spirit and fun of the original. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2019
2/5 91% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Except for the enjoyable nostalgia that swells in the form of throwback cameos, Vince Gilligan probably should've left this one alone. This movie may have sounded good in theory, but turns out it's far more story than anybody needed or wanted. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
2.5/5 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) When it comes to the unnecessary sequel department, few major studios are able to wring out every last drop of a story or character more than Disney. ‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
3/5 11% Jexi (2019) Jexi never quite hits comedy gold and is probably better suited for a streaming release, but it's inventive, funny, and enjoyable enough to mildly recommend.‐ Screen Zealots
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2019
2/5 74% Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019) When it comes to comedies, it's never a good sign when the blooper reel at the end of the credits is the highlight of the film. ‐ Screen Zealots
