The Outpost (2020)
The Outpost is a stark reminder of the lives lost in Afghanistan, and the heroes who've fought valiantly for their country. Caleb Landry Jones stuns in an Oscar worthy performance.

Force of Nature (2020)
Force of Nature is an absurdly plotted heist thriller. Mel Gibson washes out in his latest turn as a hard-nosed cop.
Posted Jun 30, 2020
Irresistible feels like a stale retread of well-known talking points. The lines that divide us are obvious. Irresistible offers no insights or solutions to today's corrosive politics.

You Should Have Left (2020)
You Should Have Left is a forgettable entry in the haunted house genre. A good Kevin Bacon can't save a lackluster script.
Posted Jun 18, 2020
7500 is a harrowing thriller. The 9/11 style plot and hijacking scenes are disturbing. I struggled to keep my emotions in check.
Posted Jun 17, 2020
Da 5 Bloods (2020)
Da 5 Bloods intercuts a spellbinding narrative with newsreels, educational asides, and harrowing archival footage. Spike Lee has delivered the most impactful and thought-provoking film of his career.

Artemis Fowl (2020)
Artemis Fowl has a high production value, but fails to captivate in any meaningful way. The characters are clunky, poorly written, and devoid of chemistry.
Posted Jun 11, 2020
The King of Staten Island (2020)
The film's wonderful ensemble cast paints a vivid portrait of Staten Island's working class residents. The characters are funny, poignant, and endearing.
Posted Jun 8, 2020
How far will a father go to protect the life of a criminal son? Hammer is an intense crime thriller adroitly interwoven with a compelling family drama.
Posted Jun 4, 2020
Kevin James plays against type as a truly despicable villain. Becky takes the Home Alone concept and runs it through a meat grinder.
Posted Jun 2, 2020
End of Sentence (2020)
End of Sentence is a realistic exploration of human nature. It shows that the gulfs that divide us can be bridged. John Hawkes is brilliant in an understated performance.
Posted May 29, 2020
The High Note (2020)
The High Note's good ensemble cast and infectious soundtrack are utterly derailed by an absurd plot twist.
Posted May 27, 2020
Scoob! is a raucous spectacle of elaborate chase scenes. It's a fun ride to see, but lacks the heart and innocence of the classic cartoon.
Posted May 19, 2020
Castle in the Ground (2019)
Castle in the Ground is a bleak as hell, honest account of addiction. The climax is strangely executed, but the message delivered is clear.
Posted May 15, 2020
Tom Hardy is remarkable in a stomach churning performance. He is the only high point in a painfully slow, meandering film.
Posted May 13, 2020
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War ends the DC Animated Movie Universe in carnage. The big moments work, but too many details are lost in the relatively short runtime.
Posted May 8, 2020
Style trumps substance as simplistic supporting characters come and go illogically. A country and blues driven soundtrack from The Flaming Lips may be more memorable than the film.
Posted May 5, 2020
Robert the Bruce (2019)
Robert the Bruce places too much emphasis on the secondary characters. The film could have been titled "Morag the Widow Saves Scotland."
Posted May 1, 2020
Australia's infamous outlaw and folk hero gets a post-modern, punk rock update. George MacKay carries the film with an intense, magnetic screen presence.
Posted Apr 23, 2020
The Quarry (2020)
Shea Whigham and Michael Shannon are the high points in a low adrenaline film.
Posted Apr 17, 2020
Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is a worthy adaptation of the classic Midway video game. The brutal finishing moves and awesome fight combos are successfully recreated.
Posted Apr 14, 2020
Trolls World Tour (2020)
Younger children will be mesmerized by Trolls World Tour. It's like watching and listening to refined sugar. Singing and happiness is needed now more than ever.
Posted Apr 10, 2020
We Summon the Darkness (2020)
We Summon the Darkness is chock full of classic genre tropes. The fetching coeds, satanic rituals, and heavy metal soundtrack get a completely different take here.
Posted Apr 9, 2020
Vivarium turns the idyllic dream of homeownership into an existential nightmare. The premise runs thin. An initially intriguing approach turns into a humdrum climax.
Posted Mar 26, 2020
Resistance is a gripping, heartbreaking remembrance of a dark historical chapter. Jesse Eisenberg has his career best performance as legendary French mime, Marcel Marceau.
Posted Mar 20, 2020
The Hunt (2020)
The Hunt should not be viewed as social commentary. It's not that smart. Forget the politics. Embrace Betty Gilpin vs Hilary Swank, and mindless carnage.
Posted Mar 12, 2020
Vin Diesel has a few moments of angst, but is nearly robotic throughout. He's almost a Terminator with this performance. Bloodshot is passable sci-fi at best.
Posted Mar 11, 2020
Escape from Pretoria (2020)
Escape from Pretoria has several hold your breath moments to keep the action flowing at a quick pace. Daniel Radcliffe continues to be daring in his acting choices.
Posted Mar 6, 2020
The Way Back (2020)
The Way Back shows how the darkness of tragedy and self-loathing can be overcome. It is a serious, realistic portrayal of human nature. Ben Affleck's most mature performance yet.
Posted Mar 5, 2020
Onward teaches children to cope with death in a creative and heartfelt way. The film treads into somber territory, but dazzles with its magical plot.
Posted Mar 3, 2020
Superman: Red Son (2020)
Superman: Red Son is breathtakingly good; a sophisticated, thought-provoking, and thrilling new take on DC's most beloved characters.
Posted Feb 27, 2020
The Invisible Man (2020)
A strong lead performance from Elisabeth Moss and several well-timed scares deliver the frightful goods.
Posted Feb 26, 2020
The Night Clerk (2020)
The Night Clerk is initially compelling, but loses steam considerably as the narrative wanes. A good lead performance can't overcome a weak climax.
Posted Feb 21, 2020
The Call of the Wild (2020)
Every critter and setting is lamentably fake CGI. The result is an entirely unconvincing look that torpedoes every other aspect of the story.
Posted Feb 18, 2020
Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)
Sonic the Hedgehog triumphantly defies the onslaught of early social media criticism. Everyone who harped at the look of the character will be eating Sonic dust between fits of laughter.
Posted Feb 13, 2020
Comedy greats Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell look wooden in their performances. Their lack of chemistry turns Downhill into a slow, dry narrative.
Posted Feb 12, 2020
Birds of Prey succeeds on the strength of Margot Robbie's giddy performance, despite a paper thin plot and cartoonish execution.
Posted Feb 6, 2020
The Rhythm Section (2020)
A strong lead performance can't save The Rhythm Section from molasses slow pacing. The Blake Lively revenge thriller showcases her excellent range, but not much else.
Posted Jan 29, 2020
The Gentlemen (2020)
Guy Ritchie's return to British gangsters lacks the sizzle of previous efforts, but succeeds with standout performances from an all-star cast.
Posted Jan 22, 2020
Bad Boys for Life (2020)
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence continue to be likeable in Bad Boys for Life. The film treads much more seriously than previous installments.
Posted Jan 16, 2020
Dolittle is a delightful adventure that will have adults and children roaring with laughter. Every celebrity actor is matched perfectly to their animal counterpart.
Posted Jan 15, 2020
Kristen Stewart does her Sigourney Weaver impersonation in the better than expected Underwater.
Posted Jan 9, 2020
Like a Boss (2020)
Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne are knockdown hilarious in Like a Boss. The actresses play off each other to great effect.
Posted Jan 8, 2020
Cats has unfairly received withering criticism. If you liked the Broadway musical, you will like the film.
Posted Dec 24, 2019
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a filet mignon of fan service, a film that checks every box. A few cheers will erupt. A tear or two may be shed. You will certainly be glued to the screen for every second.
Posted Dec 18, 2019
Bombshell is spectacularly acted, riveting at times, but pulls punches when it could have landed knockout blows.
Posted Dec 17, 2019
Hell on the Border (2019)
Legendary frontier marshal Bass Reeves gets a shoddy western. Hell on the Border shines a spotlight on the lawman, but fails in almost every other regard.
Posted Dec 12, 2019
Jumanji: The Next Level (2019)
Avatar hijinks abound in this hilarious sequel. Audiences will howl as the characters return to the video game, but unexpectedly switch bodies.
