4.5/5 92% Da 5 Bloods (2020) For as long as there has been cinema, we have needed a Spike Lee. We may always need Spike Lee. We can at least be grateful that he's such a vibrant, furious, genre-spanning polemicist. ‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 92% The Vast of Night (2020) The Vast of Night actually made me do the Spielberg Face.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 36% The Wrong Missy (2020) Give Lauren Lapkus the Best Actress Oscar, you cowards.‐ Student Edge

3/5 80% Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made (2019) I suppose you have to respect how extra Antrum is. In a way, its biggest problem is that Amito and Laicini have too many good ideas here.‐ Student Edge

4/5 91% The Assistant (2020) There is no end to the humiliation in The Assistant, which imagines what it must have been like to serve as a downtrodden PA to a Harvey Weinstein type, and to accidentally but undeniably become his accomplice.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 68% Extraction (2020) In Extraction, Chris Hemsworth plays a mercenary named Tyler Rake who winds up literally killing someone with a gardening rake. So, it's that kind of movie.‐ Student Edge

4/5 88% Swallow (2020) An expectant mother develops a taste for marbles, pins and worse in Swallow, a challenging body horror flick some will find unpalatable, but is worth ingesting.‐ Student Edge

3/5 56% The Hunt (2020) The Hunt is a familiar kill-or-be-killed thriller that is strangely top-heavy in the killing department. Normally, that'd be a mark against it. But it's precisely when the film gets rid of everyone except Gilpin that it starts cooking.‐ Student Edge

4/5 88% Onward (2020) You will not be surprised to learn that the actual magic makers at Pixar have found another way to suck tears from your eye sockets with great velocity.‐ Student Edge

3/5 84% The Way Back (2020) We see how, exactly, this sad sack might rally to inspire the disaffected kids on the roster. His Batman could never.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 100% Honeyland (2019) Honeyland is a stirring demonstration of our symbiosis with the natural world. Or, in other words, it's tight.‐ Student Edge

4/5 91% The Invisible Man (2020) Writer-director Leigh Whannell, screenwriter of Saw, has evolved into a proper illusionist with his old school yet radical retelling of The Invisible Man.‐ Student Edge

2/5 54% Guns Akimbo (2020) It takes a flick like Guns Akimbo to make you stop and appreciate the craftsmanship and nuance of a motion picture like Crank.‐ Student Edge

4/5 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), as it is gloriously titled, answers the ancient cinematic question: What if Suicide Squad hadn't been godawful?‐ Student Edge

4/5 94% Honey Boy (2019) [LaBeouf's involvement] may cause some to approach it with caution, and not unreasonably, but I'd suggest throwing caution to the wind. This, you gotta see.‐ Student Edge

5/5 92% Uncut Gems (2019) Fans of The Waterboy should go into Uncut Gems with plenty of high quality H2O to make up for all the juices they'll be projectile-sweating out of their pores.‐ Student Edge

4/5 96% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) There isn't a literal 'peanut butter falcon' in The Peanut Butter Falcon, but true to the title, it's a sticky-sweet film that soars on the strength of its easy-breezy cast.‐ Student Edge

4/5 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) I knew I was a convert when Mike said, "ride together, die together, bad boys for life" during a wedding toast for Marcus' daughter, and I thought, "what a beautiful sentiment for that young couple".‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 14% Dolittle (2020) No animals were harmed in the making of this movie. Just careers.‐ Student Edge

4/5 89% 1917 (2020) As far as 'single-take' movies go, 1917 is one of the best.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2020
2/5 51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) It is an act of cowardice that sees a beloved nine-film saga sputter to a hugely disappointing and unaffecting end. Congratulations, internet. You killed the thing you, ahem, loved.‐ Student Edge

2/5 20% Cats (2019) Finally, a whole new generation can discover that the Cats musical is two hours of human-feline hybrids without genitals having no-touch sex and begging for death via song.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
2.5/5 80% Jojo Rabbit (2019) The film, in its brazen audacity of concept and execution, does give off the feeling that the makers reckon they are absolutely crushing it, quite literally embodied by Waititi's distracting turn as a cheeky Hitler. ‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2019
1.5/5 38% Black Christmas (2019) Christmas is cancelled. ‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
4/5 97% Knives Out (2019) Don't fear: No spoilers here. All you need to know is Knives Out is a devilish delight.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 95% Marriage Story (2019) The hilarious, heartbreaking Marriage Story [is] a triumph in his filmmaking career.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 79% Judy & Punch (2020) [Foulkes] clearly wants the laughs to catch in our throat, so as not to diminish the story she's telling. Still, a few snuck out regardless.‐ Student Edge

3/5 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) In this film, a character's virtue directly correlates with how wind-swept and motor oil-stained they look.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2019
3.5/5 87% Color Out of Space (2020) Nothing says fun at the cinema like a movie that makes metaphorical the radioactive rot of cancer treatment and the primordial terror of mutating into your own parents.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) There's a lot to love in this sequel to The Shining , but it lives in the shadow of the original.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2019
5/5 96% The Irishman (2019) Few films can justify a length longer than 90 minutes, but even at three-and-a-half hours, Martin Scorsese's melancholy mob movie The Irishman still feels lean, and very mean.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) At this rate, we won't get a decent Terminator sequel before the actual end of humanity.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2019
3.5/5 88% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) The flick is cute without being cloying, and doesn't race to a cheap happy ending. Besides, it's long-term growth that Brittany's chasing anyway. It is, ahem, a marathon, not a sprint.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2019
4/5 88% Ready or Not (2019) A round of hide and seek with some blue bloods gets, well, bloody in the very funny horror-satire Ready or Not.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
3/5 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) We've had to wait so long for a Zombieland sequel, it's literally become a period piece.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2019
4/5 68% Joker (2019) A towering performance from Phoenix, who becomes the best to ever do it ('it' being the ultimate acting challenge of depicting the clown who fights Batman).‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2019
1.5/5 26% Gemini Man (2019) Gemini Man-like Lee's last effort, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk-squeezes in 120 frames per second. Hey baby, that just means more movie to not love.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
2.5/5 65% Ride Like a Girl (2019) As long as you have zero problem with horse racing, the allegations levied against one of the trainers depicted in the film, and every sports movie trope in history, sure, Ride Like a Girl is fine.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2019
3.5/5 74% Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019) Between Two Ferns, as a webseries and now as a Netflix motion picture (just like Roma!), is the perfect joke delivery system. ‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2019
4/5 84% Ad Astra (2019) Ad Astra [is] an existential space epic with the lofty aspirations of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the common sense to enliven proceedings with moon pirates and feral zero-gravity apes.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019
3.5/5 80% Good Boys (2019) In 2019, it's especially nice to enjoy a movie without wondering if the lead actors are about to be, or have already been, cancelled for their toxic masculinity.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 63% It Chapter Two (2019) If it was an episode of Friends, you'd call the 'present day' portion of It: "The One With All the Weird S***".‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2019
3.5/5 87% Animals (2019) Animals is a spirited though often sad examination of female friendship, and a friendship's end; the hangover that arrives no matter how endless the fun seemed.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 86% The Nightingale (2019) If ever a rave review was to also serve as a consumer warning, it's now, for The Nightingale.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2019
3.5/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) It's a loving, affectionate tribute to those who give their life to cinema, and to old-school moviemaking, but it's also a repudiation of the past, and how his town ignored the evil that flirted so closely to its fringes. ‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2019
4/5 83% Midsommar (2019) Aster has found the ultimate back-channel into our primal terrors, making us suspicious of the people we would otherwise run to in a tragedy. And damn if it doesn't work every time.‐ Student Edge

5/5 100% The Australian Dream (2019) The Australian Dream is shattering. And now, the illusion of our country can't be unshattered.‐ Student Edge

3/5 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) In this film, Dwayne Johnson yanks a helicopter from the air by a chain with his bare hands.‐ Student Edge

3/5 53% The Lion King (2019) The exact same stuff happens as before. Now though, it looks like David Attenborough uncovered a secret species of singing lion and lent them to Disney for it.‐ Student Edge
