9.5/10 67% On Chesil Beach (2018) [Ronan's] work as Florence is probably too subtle to get her an Oscar, but she and the film itself deserve to be praised.‐ The Pop Break

9.5/10 91% Support the Girls (2018) Though Bujalski's aspirations are perhaps not that grand, it's easy to see [the film] as some sort of metaphor for what it's like to be a woman at this moment in history.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 63% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) What Rogen et al. are pointing out is that sometimes, in order to retain some modicum of power, women have to compromise in ways men don't.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 31% Wonder Wheel (2017) Regardless of its confused perspective, Wonder Wheel is Allen's best and best-looking film in years. It's far from perfect, but it's hard to ignore.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 79% The Beguiled (2017) Though Coppola infamously took a lot of artistic license with 2006's Marie Antoinette, she delivers a serious period piece here.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 96% Trophy (2017) However, the new documentary, Trophy...suggests that not only is the issue of hunting vs. conservationism not so black-and-white, but that the two [are] intertwined.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 59% Bobbi Jene (2017) There's a rawness to [the dances], an intimacy very much like the honest, unfiltered access we get into Smith's life during the film.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 84% Disobedience (2018) Those [sex] scenes will inevitably become a big talking point, but Disobedience isn't as concerned with passion as its consequences.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 89% Skate Kitchen (2018) The view Moselle gives us of this subculture is intimate and occasionally a little strange, but every second is captivating.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 92% The Price of Everything (2018) From auctioneers to historians and buyers, the breadth of people whom Kahn interviews is incredible.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 69% Climax (2019) ...a childish middle finger to the film community, America and even the audience. For viewers who think that's sounds like fun, Climax may be one of his best.‐ The Pop Break

9/10 99% Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018) In the end, perhaps the most frustrating - and devastating - thing about Shoplifters is that if leaves us just as confused about what is right as the characters.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 56% Focus (2015) Despite their 22-year age difference, [Smith and Robbie] connect in that old Hollywood bantering way where a smile and a clever turn of phrase were enough to begin a romance.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 65% Magic Mike XXL (2015) ...Magic Mike XXL delivers on the first film's promise...judging by the audience of near-rabid women I saw the movie with, it was a borderline religious experience.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 60% Joy (2015) It almost feels pointless to praise Lawrence's acting after how much great work she's done, but this film is further proof of why she's so highly-regarded.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Now, the first Walker-less installment, The Fate of the Furious, proves that the series can survive, but that it has to make some big changes to do it.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 90% Stronger (2017) Rather than show how Jeff is bolstered by the people of Boston or his family, the film goes for something much darker, more nuanced.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle in Time is about traveling through time and space, but it is also itself an act of time travel.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 71% Dayveon (2017) Luckily, Dayveon is worth every penny. Quiet and powerful, it's a film that takes a familiar story and makes it feel new. So, take the risk. You won't regret it.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 81% The Party (2018) The Party is fueled by fury and passion. While much of its drama is personal, it's also inescapably political.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 48% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper is undeniably stupid, but it works because it's not afraid to be stupid. ‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 77% The China Hustle (2018) It's a lot to keep track of, but Rothstein is a clever editor and the film flows so that the constant information dump never becomes overwhelming.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 80% Unsane (2018) Regardless, abusive as Unsane is toward its audience, perhaps it needs to be to really make its punches land.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 79% 306 Hollywood (2018) The tribute the Bogarín siblings have made for their grandmother may not be recognizable to every audience member, but grief by its very nature is personal....‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 96% On Her Shoulders (2018) Hopeful as On Her Shoulders ultimately feels, it's hard not to let what's happening now dampen it.‐ The Pop Break

8.5/10 93% The Last Race (2018) Still, while the world The Last Race shows is in decline, perhaps it deserves to survive.‐ The Pop Break
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
8.5/10 76% Never Goin' Back (2018) [The girls] bawdiness is no worse than something in the average, male-dominated, gross-out comedy, some viewers just won't be comfortable....‐ The Pop Break

8/10 51% Unbroken (2014) The posters claim the movie is about "Survival. Resilience. Redemption," but it only gives us the first two, and the finished product is less effective because of it.‐ The Pop Break

8/10 78% Captain Marvel (2019) She's cool and she knows it and one of the film's greatest joys is watching Larson swagger around and verbally out-spar Jackson.‐ The Pop Break

8/10 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) Regardless of the gloss and the glamor, the real draw here is watching this great set of actresses play around. The heist is just the excuse bring them together.‐ The Pop Break

8/10 90% A Star Is Born (2018) The story may have begun as a cautionary tale about Hollywood fame, but even set in the music industry, the ending has a kind of emotional potency only film can achieve.‐ The Pop Break

8/10 98% The Big Sick (2017) What follows is an off-beat romance that constantly bucks against rom-com conventions.‐ The Pop Break
Read More | Posted Dec 25, 2018
8/10 100% The Departure (2017) Though The Departure's initial draw is the novelty...the film is actually a low-key examination of suicide in Japan.‐ The Pop Break
Read More | Posted Dec 25, 2018
8/10 93% We the Animals (2018) Torres's...writing is blunt and evocative, like poetry turned prose. The new film adaptation of the book by director Jeremiah Zagar turns the story back into poetry again.‐ The Pop Break
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
8/10 87% Upgrade (2018) Though Upgrade is mostly a moody neo-noir, the action scenes also show its sense of humor.‐ The Pop Break

8/10 88% Whitney (2018) In the end, the only truth that remains unquestioned is the power in Whitney's voice, a gift so clear and awe-inspiring that it felt like touching the divine.‐ The Pop Break

8/10 90% Arctic (2019) At its core, 'Arctic' is not so much about survival, but the way our connection to others can allow us to push back against hopelessness.‐ The Pop Break

7.5/10 63% Spectre (2015) Spectre is perhaps not as accessible to the average viewer, but it might be more rewarding as an entry in not just the franchise, but Daniel Craig's time in the role.‐ The Pop Break

7.5/10 98% Quest (2017) [The Raineys are] fascinating subjects to say the least and director Jonathan Olshefski couldn't have made them more interesting if he'd written them.‐ The Pop Break
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
7.5/10 100% Summer 1993 (Estiu 1993) (2018) Rather, Summer 1993 is less family melodrama and more a love letter to childhood and to the parents who shape it.‐ The Pop Break
