1.5/4 19% Dolittle (2020) Thank goodness we didn't have to wait more than a couple of weeks into the year to hit our first big-budget, military-grade stink-bomb of 2020.‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 83% What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael (2019) The film doesn't shy away from some of Kael's most unpopular takes on certain works considered masterpieces or her praising of those movies considered trash...‐ Third Coast Review

2.5/4 51% Underwater (2020) [Stewart] stands out as putting forth maximum effort and pulling us into the intensity of every moment her character inhabits.‐ Third Coast Review

1.5/4 19% Like a Boss (2020) Boy, did they miss the mark-unless their mark was an R-rated celebration of shallow dummies.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 91% Uncut Gems (2019) To say that Sandler has never been better doesn't quite explain what he's accomplished in Uncut Gems. ‐ Third Coast Review

2.5/4 76% Spies in Disguise (2019) This animated action-adventure doesn't have a particularly memorable or impressive look or story, but it has a great personality.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 99% Apollo 11 (2019) Apollo 11 is vibrant, full of energy, and an absolutely essential telling of the momentous events, which are unveiled in a way that makes is all feel thrilling and alive.‐ Third Coast Review

1.5/4 20% Cats (2019) In the hands of filmmaker Tom Hooper, he's turned this surreal concept concerning the meaning of life and death into something of a freak show.‐ Third Coast Review

2/4 36% Lost Holiday (2019) Margaret and Henry are a bit unbearable at times and not generally people you feel like spending time with or even observing as a casual audience member. ‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 81% A Hidden Life (2019) Malick is a master at putting us through the emotional wringer that is the world around us, and A Hidden Life does so with grace.‐ Third Coast Review

2/4 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) I'm genuinely stunned that not only did Abrams learn nothing from the risks taken by Johnson, but also that he actively attempts to dismantle some of Johnson's boldest choices.‐ Third Coast Review

90% Starfish (2019) As strong as White's direction is here, the film doesn't work without the strength of Gardner's performance.‐ Third Coast Review
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
3.5/4 99% Amazing Grace (2019) Amazing Grace is not a film you watch at home. You need to see this in a theater with commanding sound, a clear image on screen, and with an audience that isn't afraid to applaud and maybe shout out an "Amen" a time or twenty.‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 72% I See You (2019) I See You takes chances that I wish more films of this budget and style would take. It never lets you quite settle into what you think it is or isn't going to be.‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 90% Dark Waters (2019) I don't think I was quite prepared for just how much of a poignant gut punch of a film Dark Waters truly is. ‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 97% Knives Out (2019) This is an easy movie to adore and watch over and over.‐ Third Coast Review

2.5/4 74% White Snake (2019) Still, some of the animation is so perfect and without flaws that it feels soulless and lacking warmth. ‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 100% Colewell (2019) Colewell is a movie about reflection and our value to the work and ourselves as we get older. I found it deeply, profoundly and unexpectedly moving.‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 74% Richard Jewell (2019) Richard Jewell is a nice-looking movie with a handful of not just good performances, but some of the most memorable you'll see all year.‐ Third Coast Review

2.5/4 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) The chemistry among the four leads is still strong, and it needs to be to carry us through this largely uninspired story. ‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) Above all else, the film is surprising and appealing at every level, and if you think this is a story you wouldn't care about in a million years, then it's especially built for you.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 93% High Flying Bird (2019) Holland often plays fairly subdued characters, but here, he's absolutely ferocious in an almost unassuming way... It's a marvel to see him set loose like this, and even more so because the equally matched Zazie Beetz is on hand.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 87% ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch (2019) This is a movie that provides visually pure and beautifully photographed proof of the danger in which people are putting the planet. ‐ Third Coast Review

2/4 51% 21 Bridges (2019) The best thing I can say about the new crime actioner 21 Bridges is that it's mercifully short...‐ Third Coast Review

2.5/4 77% Frozen II (2019) The links to the first film are strong...So why does this installment come up short?‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) What's here is a snapshot for a picture board, and it is a prime example of a picture being worth a thousand words. ‐ Third Coast Review

2/4 63% The Good Liar (2019) The Good Liar falls apart in the third act, but there are clues that things aren't going to quite come together even before that.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 81% The Report (2019) At the center of the storm is Driver...who is so engaging and focused in his performance that he makes it possible to digest large amounts of dialogue and layer upon layer of truth.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) The racing sequences racing are exceptionally crafted...to create something so immersive and dangerous that you find yourself practically flinching and sweating right along with the drivers.‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) Sometimes a movie just has to be really fun and sharp to get my attention. It doesn't have to reinvent the wheel or break the mold; it just has to be a blast. ‐ Third Coast Review

2.5/4 43% Midway (2019) Midway is a sometime flawed film, especially when it pushes the patriotism and heroism angles a bit too much, but it doesn't always feel inappropriate.‐ Third Coast Review

1/4 21% Playing with Fire (2019) I keep looking at the names in this cast and being astonished that such a talented collection of individuals could have produced such tragically unfunny work.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) Doctor Sleep is one of the few horror films this year that I immediately wanted to see again.‐ Third Coast Review

1.5/4 57% Frankie (2019) It's disappointing to have a film set in such a beautiful location seem devoid of romance or any kind of passion.‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) This an epic action journey could easily wrap up this decades-long franchise, or kick start a whole new series of films with a new hero at the epicenter.‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) While a great deal of Double Tap may feel familiar, director Fleischer has improved as a director of action sequences since the original. ‐ Third Coast Review

2/4 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Mistress of Evil's greatest crime is that it gets so lost in its fantasy elements that it forgets to create engaging characters or a story that generates any real drama.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 94% Western Stars (2019) Having just turned 70 last month, it's not surprising that a man so gifted with words might have a few thoughts on growing older.‐ Third Coast Review

2.5/4 61% The Current War: Director's Cut (2019) Sometimes curious and frequently interesting-a mild recommendation.‐ Third Coast Review

3.5/4 97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) It's almost impossible to watch Eddie Murphy take on the character of world-famous stand-up performer/blaxploitation actor/rap pioneer Rudy Ray Moore and not wonder what took him so long to do it. ‐ Third Coast Review

3/4 43% The Addams Family (2019) The Addams Family might be your best bet with the approaching Halloween season, in terms of truly capturing the holiday in all its gaudy glory.‐ Third Coast Review
