10/10 91% Blood Quantum (2019) This gory flesh-ripping bloodfest is one of the best zombie apocalypse movies I have ever seen. In this case, "the gift" of Indigenous peoples' immunity is about as valuable as a golden-gilded dog turd.‐ Indian Country Today

7.9/10 48% Underwater (2020) Seeking to find success with a film that was put together as if successful movies were an algebraic formula, "Underwater" manages to entertain, but doesn't offer any new ideas or innovation. All said, I enjoyed it.‐ Indian Country Today

9.2/10 61% The Last Full Measure (2020) 'The Last Full Measure' is a great and yet tragic story of a man who saved sixty lives in Vietnam. As a former military veteran, I can't help but feel a connection to this great film.‐ Indian Country Today

9.4/10 100% Queen of Paradis (2020) A surprising gem of a film. Though perhaps unknowing in its intrusions, an interesting mix of talent featuring the complex artistry of Reine Paradis and her talented filmmaker husband Carl Lindstrom.‐ Indian Country Today

7.4/10 38% Spenser Confidential (2020) Mark Wahlberg was sincerely funny, but sometimes this movie went so far into satire, it lost its believability. Alan Arkin and Iliza Shlesinger were hilarious and Winston Duke as Hawk was fantastic.‐ Indian Country Today

9.0/10 87% Freaks (2019) I suspected this would be good, but wow, this blindsided me in the best way. Lexy Kolker, who plays a 7-year-old protagonist named Chloe, is commanding in her role which carries the story to its ultimate success.‐ Indian Country Today

4.9/10 9% Brahms: The Boy II (2020) This just didn't even hold a candle to the first. The premise was good and could have delivered, but in the simplest way to say it, it just didn't.‐ Indian Country Today

3.9/10 8% Fantasy Island (2020) I was looking forward to the revamp of this 1970s classic which I watched obsessively as a kid, but this version without the memorable little person Tattoo and a Mr. Roarke with wrinkled linen clothing, seriously floundered‐ Indian Country Today

7.0/10 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) A good movie, with enjoyable performances by Christian Bale, Matt Damon, and Jon Bernthal. All said, I felt bad for the Ferrari guy.‐ Indian Country Today

5.0/10 61% The Call of the Wild (2020) Three performances stand out, Cara Gee, Omar Sy and Harrison Ford. But my heart aches to think how much better it could have been without CGI and a real dog Buck.‐ Indian Country Today

9.0/10 92% The Invisible Man (2020) Elisabeth Moss delivers a gritty, yet commanding performance worthy of big notice. Though the film is The Invisible Man, Moss makes this movie what it is, an excellent anxiety-ridden thrill ride.‐ Indian Country Today

7.9/10 64% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Mildly corny humor directed at kids, but the overall saving grace is Jim Carrey as the wildly weird Dr. Robotnik.‐ Indian Country Today

9.2/10 73% Harriet (2019) Harriet is a beautiful movie within all of its historic pain. But the one question I have, did Harriet need to be some sort of psychic to outsmart the horribly racist slave-owners? I question that choice.‐ Indian Country Today

7.9/10 74% The Photograph (2020) Issa Rae and Laketh Stanfield do a masterful job in The Photograph but I found their relationship struggling to have fun. I was more drawn to the supporting characters' relationships such as the intern and the hilarious Kyle and his wife.‐ Indian Country Today

7.9/10 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) A hundred times better than I thought it was going to be. Though there were some technical problems, I enjoyed the cast of characters, including, of course, the sarcastic Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.‐ Indian Country Today

7.9/10 28% The Rhythm Section (2020) A great concept for a spy-thriller but I was frustrated at the worn-out usage of shaky camera footage during action scenes. Likely intended, but geeze, use the stabilizer button in your film edits. Jude Law was awesome.‐ Indian Country Today

8.1/10 64% Gretel & Hansel (2020) Gretel and Hansel' is a bizarre and dark version for sure, but also a bit self-serving on the part of the director. Hidden within it all, gorgeous cinematography.‐ Indian Country Today

8.1/10 71% The King (2019) I expected a not half-bad historical account. But it was surprisingly much more, with unexpected great performances to include Timothée Chalamet as Henry V and Robert Pattinson as the snotty French prince.‐ Indian Country Today

7.7/10 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) Great action, great fun, great special effects, laughed a ton, but I couldn't help notice a minor disconnect between Smith and Lawrence.‐ Indian Country Today

6.9 /10 50% Doom: Annihilation (2019) Great job reviving the world of the DOOM video game with nostalgic colored key cards and the BFG-3000, not an Oscar's contender, but who cares.‐ Indian Country Today

7.4/10 65% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Super scary, in a truly fun way, even if a bit over the top. I love diving into the world of the Warren families' 'room of evil things.' This made me want to see a movie about their daughter Judy, who already sees ghosts.‐ Indian Country Today

9.5/10 83% Just Mercy (2020) Michael B. Jordan does beautiful work, Jamie Foxx is heart-achingly honest and Brie Larson joins in seamlessly to create a heart-wrenching truth about racism in America, in this case, Alabama.‐ Indian Country Today

9.6/10 14% Dolittle (2020) "I loved it, I laughed, because it felt good to be a kid again. A star-filled cast of Dolittle comes together to create a beautiful film. Robert Downey Jr. is pure magic. "‐ Indian Country Today

10/10 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Yes, I am giving Alita: Battle Angel one of my stingy 10's out of a possible 10. Imaginative, true to the artists' concepts, and an all-out cinematic action blast.‐ Indian Country Today

9.5/10 97% Knives Out (2019) I LOVED it. An amazing cast of characters led flawlessly by Daniel Craig, Chris Evans and Ana de Armas. The moment I thought I knew what was happening, a twist threw me. One of my year's favorite films.‐ Indian Country Today

6.4/10 96% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) A great film showcasing the life and legacy of Mr. Rogers, however, I never bought Tom Hanks was anyone else but Tom Hanks. Disappointingly, the movie focused more on the journalists' story than Mr. Rogers.‐ Indian Country Today

8.2/10 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Still fun, but what happened to the game being broken? Jumanji: The Next Level excels with a star-filled and diverse cast with a complexity of approaches to their characters. Dwayne Johnson's ability to portray this was fantastic.‐ Indian Country Today

8.9/10 95% Marriage Story (2019) Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver deliver a real and unflinching look into the theatrics of a struggling marriage. A tragedy, a comedy, and well-written portal into two souls reality‐ Indian Country Today

7.5/10 77% Frozen II (2019) I sincerely appreciated the respect paid toward the Northuldra. The fictional Indigenous tribe based on Sámi culture. A fun and magical film, but way too many songs.‐ Indian Country Today

8.9/10 91% Togo (2019) Willem Dafoe and his Husky Togo's life-or-death journey is a mesmerizing nail-biter. Additional roles by Zahn McClarnon and Michael Greyeyes add depth to the story, but it's still a non-Native guy's story in Native Alaska‐ Indian Country Today

9.4/10 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) The best Star Wars episode since The Empire Strikes Back. With as much nostalgia as new story content, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker rose to the occasion full force. (Pun intended) - ignore the haters.‐ Indian Country Today

6.8/10 21% Cats (2019) The star power likely won't save this non-Jellicle movie of 2019. A theatrical powerhouse, CATS didn't translate well from theater to film. The songs were great, but the actors struggled to find an objective with the absence of any storyline. ‐ Indian Country Today

9/10 97% The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open (2019) The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open is beautiful in its tragedy, artistic in its truth. It did indeed 'break the world open' by telling a story that many non-Indigenous have tried to silence for too long.‐ Indian Country Today

3/10 42% Midway (2019) Midway overshoots with too much CGI, an emotionless war, overacting and far too much cookie-cutter 1940 film elements.‐ Indian Country Today

6/10 79% Jojo Rabbit (2019) As is Taika Watiti's style, Jojo Rabbit is a strange and quirky film highlighting the deranged narrative of Adolf Hitler as seen through the eyes of German youth. The comedy lies a bit too close to the tragedy.‐ Indian Country Today

8/10 96% The Irishman (2019) De Niro is great as the blue-eyed Irishman Frank Sheeran, Al Pacino, in his over the top obnoxiousness, wasn't annoying as Jimmy Hoffa and all said, Joe Pesci steals the show as mob boss Russell Bufalino.‐ Indian Country Today

9/10 89% 1917 (2020) 1917 is a brilliantly filmed World War I movie, that showcases a wide range of atrocities of war outside of the spectrum of one-note bloody violence. This film is agonizing, believable and unapologetic in telling a real-time story.‐ Indian Country Today

9/10 46% Last Christmas (2019) 'Last Christmas' is a romantic comedy that should be on everyone's must-see movie list. Fun, charming and adorable. Emilia Clarke as Kate is perfectly cast. The film also has a welcome tribute to George Michael.‐ Indian Country Today

5/10 No Score Yet Slenderman (2018) Darn - I had high hopes for Slenderman, the eerie modern legend of the tall faceless man in the forest that steals children. The disappointing thing is that there was a lot of material that COULD have been scary. The fear factor flopped.‐ Indian Country Today

9/10 70% The Kill Team (2019) The Kill Team is an excellent and haunting film, believably acted, and flawlessly directed, that dives deep into a contemporary soldier's story in the war of Afghanistan.‐ Indian Country Today

6/10 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Fun, even funny, but not quite hilarious. It's been ten years since Zombieland, so you'd think the filmmakers might have created something more impressive. One-dimensional, formulaic and predictable. No world exists outside the realm of this film.‐ Indian Country Today

4/10 26% Gemini Man (2019) Big props to Will Smith for doing the best he could with what he had to work with. I still love him as an actor. But Gemini Man was a bust.‐ Indian Country Today

8/10 68% Joker (2019) I enjoyed the dark twists of Joker, mirrored by the twisting of Pheonix's body. But even with a masterful performance by Phoenix, I struggled with yet another attack on the origin of the comic villain I grew up with.‐ Indian Country Today

9/10 81% Abominable (2019) Abominable magically dazzles with charm, beauty and a whole lot of family fun. If you want to feel like a kid again, go see it.‐ Indian Country Today

10/10 100% nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up (2019) I am hesitant to give a 10 out of 10 for any film, but nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up is an emotional award-winning film that is more than deserving. The tragic story of the Native young man Colten Boushie, shot and killed by a white farmer.‐ Indian Country Today

10/10 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Avengers: Infinity War is Marvel hardcore. Like 'Holy %$#@#$' hardcore. Like, 'I won't be able to eat for a year,' hardcore. Like, 'I want to go to bed and cry now.' Oh my God Marvel, what have you done? How dare you Thanos?‐ Indian Country Today

9/10 97% Black Panther (2018) Spectacular diversity magic! Black Panther slashes a lot of things, chiefly colonialism. In my childhood, I was force-fed history that 'Civilizations of color were less than superior.' NO MORE! The world needs this black superhero.‐ Indian Country Today

7/10 52% Equalizer 2 (2018) Not bad, but why does Denzel make a transition in the first movie to this one from a once hardened military soldier into a disheveled dopey guy that likely doesn't know how to comb his hair? It just started to go in a weird direction.‐ Indian Country Today

7/10 80% Alpha (2018) Decent actually, aside from the Easter Egg stone and painting set decorations I guess the cavemen had in their pockets if someone croaked. But I loved the prehistoric animals. A fun movie experience.‐ Indian Country Today

3/10 46% The Meg (2018) A giant shark dud. Hilariously bad. I actually enjoyed this movie because it was so horrible. The painful moments of Jason Statham (and I LOVE Statham) and the lead actress were uncomfortable, and I really cared less if anyone got eaten.‐ Indian Country Today
