3.5/4 87% The Truth (La vérité) (2020) Binoche is very good here, but this is definitely Deneuve's show.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 99% Hamilton (2020) It's said that live theater is like catching lightning in a bottle in that every night is different and can never be repeated. It's nice to have a bit of that lightning at your disposal courtesy of this movie.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 83% Nobody Knows I'm Here (Nadie Sabe que estoy Aquí) (2020) One of those films where your satisfaction will be measured in terms of whether you found its hero fully realized as a character.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 56% Mope (2020) Mope is so disgusted by its characters that it never sees their humanity.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 92% Da 5 Bloods (2020) Lee has crafted an exciting, violent film that can be enjoyed as strictly that, but what elevates it to greatness is what it says and what it shows about the perception of Blackness, whether in heroic situations or human ones.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 92% Be Water (2020) An introduction to Lee that cherishes him and provides enough clips to satiate those who love his films.‐ RogerEbert.com

49% Hemingway & Gellhorn (2012) Philip Kaufman's epic HBO movie Hemingway & Gellhorn is old-fashioned, corny as hell and not above using cliché. None of these characteristics is necessarily a bad thing, especially if the filmmakers know they are employing them. ‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 40% Blood and Money (2020) The film has just enough wasted potential to be a near-miss.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted May 15, 2020
2.5/4 81% Porno (2020) For a film unafraid of occasional full frontal nudity, this is surprisingly puritanical, especially when you consider the plot.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 58% All Day and a Night (2020) This film has been done too many times before and done better.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 68% Extraction (2020) Sam Hargrove frames the carnage in well-edited, easy-to-follow chunks.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 44% Sergio (2020) It's an acting dream part and Moura's more than up to the challenge.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2020
1.5/4 31% Bloodshot (2020) The action sequences look like they were edited by a Cuisinart.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2020
2/4 96% Blood on Her Name (2020) Allowing the viewer to piece things together on their own is always welcome, but the film's desire to surprise and outwit makes it contrived.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2020
3/4 94% Premature (2020) A romantic and richly drawn conversation-starter.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
3/4 59% The Last Full Measure (2020) Writer/director Todd Robinson spins this tale of heroism with a lot of purple sentiment but surprisingly little of the jingoism expected from a film like this.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2020
2.5/4 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) The best of the three films, offering in some odd ways a corrective to the prior installments.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2020
2.5/4 83% Just Mercy (2020) The majority of films about African-American suffering have always been calibrated the way Just Mercy is, with an eye to not offending White viewers with anything remotely resembling Black anger.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 89% The Two Popes (2019) The film is superbly acted and a lot of fun to watch.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2019
3/4 88% Feast of the Seven Fishes (2019) As far as Christmas romance movies go, Feast of the Seven Fishes is quite watchable, funny in several spots and sweetly poignant in others.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2019
2/4 42% Midway (2019) The overabundance of CGI is one of the bigger problems with Midway because, far too often, it feels like you're watching a video game or an F/X highlight reel.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 96% By the Grace of God (Grâce à Dieu) (2019) Ozon's tone is more sobering than angry, and it makes the film hit the viewer much harder as a result.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
2/4 26% Gemini Man (2019) [Lee's] recent desire to be at the forefront of frame-based technology, however, is resulting in hollow, empty experiences that are literally hard to watch. ‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
2.5/4 70% The Cotton Club Encore (2019) Though it's still not entirely successful, I'm glad this version exists. Coppola's restoration has turned a hot mess into a noble failure.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 84% Always in Season (2019) An unflinching look at how the racial sins of the past flow through the arteries of the present day.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
3.5/4 97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) A typical biopic buoyed by its unrelenting hilarity, its affection for its subject and commitment to the time and place it is set.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2019
2.5/4 71% Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! (2019) It only skims the surface of the habitual human behavior Spurlock wishes to explore and exploit.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2019
1.5/4 80% The Amazing Johnathan Documentary (2019) Pretends to be about the famous celebrity in the title but instead focuses on the far less interesting non-celebrity sharing the screen.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2019
3/4 100% Vision Portraits (2019) An inspiring film, a funny and informative feature whose subjects were creative kindred spirits I'd never seen onscreen before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2019
83% The Original Kings of Comedy (2000) [Spike Lee] knows the show belongs to his comedians, so he aids and abets from the shadows like the best of accomplices. The result is the Stop Making Sense of stand-up comedy movies‐ Slant Magazine

1.5/4 91% Luce (2019) The constant manipulations make Luce profoundly dissatisfying both as a thriller and as social commentary.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
3/4 88% The Great Hack (2019) That we don't know what's being done with our data is the scariest aspect of all this. The Great Hack hammers that point home quite successfully, even if it doesn't have the guts to chastise us for our voluntary contributions.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 98% Maiden (2019) Maiden excels as a suspenseful sports tale and a record of a historic first, but its biggest strength is in its warts-and-all character study of the Maiden crew.‐ RogerEbert.com

.5/4 33% Shaft (2019) This movie is 'ruin your childhood' bad, right down to the hideous auto-tuned end credits song they chose to use instead of the original 'Theme From Shaft.'‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 93% The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) Jimmie's story is a slow ballad, a tragic ode, a dirty limerick, a wistful lament and a heartbreaking elegy. It's a tribute to the notion of home that we all carry.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 72% All Is True (2019) Purists may have a field day with All Is True, and it does have a tendency to lag, but I found myself thinking about it days after I'd seen it.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 88% Chasing Portraits (2019) I felt a strong connection to the director's desire to bond with her ancestors through art.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 54% A Dark Place (Steel Country) (2019) A conventional murder mystery with an unconventional lead character.‐ RogerEbert.com

.5/4 53% The Best of Enemies (2019) This movie isn't just tone-deaf, it's ass backwards. Did the filmmakers read the room before dropping this insulting malarkey into theaters?‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2019
2.5/4 54% Yardie (2019) The film is saddled with an extraneous narration that mercilessly distracts the viewer. ‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 57% The Hummingbird Project (2019) This one works overtime, shifting gears repeatedly without once providing enough substance for the viewer to engage.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 12% Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral (2019) Madea's last hurrah is Perry's best film since his most dramatically successful I Can Do Bad All By Myself.‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 39% Donnybrook (2019) I like my sleaze 100% pure; this movie is covered in Sleaze-Whiz.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 78% Mega Time Squad (2019) I still retain a tween boy's affection for movies that dare to be this goofy. ‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 41% Under the Eiffel Tower (2019) There's no reason for you to see Under the Eiffel Tower unless you enjoy being tortured for 87 minutes.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 35% King of Thieves (2019) King of Thieves is a disappointing mess that lacks both suspense and a clear identity. Not even the occasional joy of seeing these fine actors riff with one another can save it.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 100% Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists (2018) Though their names are in the title, the real stars of Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists are the words they wrote.‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 88% Don't Come Back from the Moon (2019) For a movie that is supposedly about the consequences of absentee fathers, it sure has little of importance to say about the families they desert. The Moon deserves better symbolism.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 93% Stan & Ollie (2019) The clichés are there, but its heart beats loud enough for us to embrace and forgive them.‐ RogerEbert.com
