52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) I don't want to sound like a killjoy, because The Rise of Skywalker is all kinds of fun. But its biggest drawback is Abrams' obsequious desire to give fans what they want. ‐ That Shelf

96% The Irishman (2019) [The Irishman] is perhaps the least flashy and most self-reflective crime flick in the filmmaker's oeuvre.‐ That Shelf

3.5/5 57% Frankie (2019) With a cast like Frankie's and a filmmaker as attentive as Sachs, it would take a lot to derail this sophisticated character study.‐ In The Seats

3/5 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Although I enjoyed Zombieland ... I'm ready to jump ship. I have little patience for the series' mean characters, exhausted themes, and irreverent humour.‐ In The Seats

3.5/5 86% Where's My Roy Cohn? (2019) Tyrnauer's well-researched film does an excellent job explaining how this man behaved like a soulless ghoul. But the way the filmmaker goes about doing so feels rote. ‐ In The Seats

3.5/5 94% Mike Wallace Is Here (2019) Wallace's role was to speak truth to power, and it came at the expense of being liked. And by the end of Mike Wallace Is Here, you get that he wouldn't have it any other way.‐ In The Seats
