The Vast of Night (2020)
A modern sci-fi masterpiece.
Posted May 27, 2020
The High Note (2020)
The High Note is a pleasure to watch. Jokes about the music industry land, Ross gets to sing a couple of really catchy songs, and we become invested in what happens to the characters. I enjoyed the heck out of it.
Posted May 26, 2020
Crazy as it may seem, Jumbo is one of the more touching screen romances I've seen in a while.
Posted May 23, 2020
The Lovebirds (2020)
Two very appealing actors with distinct comedic voices blend together beautifully, leading to a preposterous, yet often hilarious escapade through New Orleans.
Posted May 20, 2020
Military Wives (2020)
Military Wives certainly doesn't reinvent the wheel. It does, however, manufacture the wheel nicely, leading to two hours of good-hearted, often touching entertainment.
Posted May 19, 2020
Proximity starts off like Close Encounters of the Third Kind, then becomes George Lucas's THX 1138 before finally morphing into The Day the Earth Stood Still by way of a faith-based film. I liked this crazy little picture a lot.
Posted May 14, 2020
Blood Quantum (2019)
At a time when zombie tales are starting to feel stale, the movie finds a way to inject a new perspective.
Posted May 9, 2020
Valley Girl (2020)
While pleasant and occasionally even fun, the film pales in comparison to its source material.
Posted May 8, 2020
A compelling examination of the totality of child sexual abuse.
Posted May 7, 2020
Spaceship Earth (2020)
Spaceship Earth is this year's Apollo 11 - a thoroughly fascinating documentary that uses archival footage to make you feel like part of a notable event.
Posted May 4, 2020
This isn't just a movie you watch, it's one you feel in your gut.
Posted Apr 30, 2020
The Wretched (2020)
Easily one of the horror highlights of the year.
Posted Apr 28, 2020
The Infiltrators (2020)
Most of us probably agree that the immigration system isn't perfect. It needs work. Here is a film that can help spur important discussion.
Posted Apr 28, 2020
To the Stars (2020)
This tender coming-of-age drama is a gem.
Posted Apr 23, 2020
This may not be the definitive movie about Ned Kelly, but it's a skillfully-made picture with plenty of thrilling drama.
Posted Apr 22, 2020
The Quarry (2020)
Despite two good leading actors, The Quarry is a frustratingly sluggish movie that thinks it's more profound than it really is.
Posted Apr 16, 2020
Trolls World Tour (2020)
The movie is less character-driven than the original, but it makes up for that by embracing more interesting themes.
Posted Apr 11, 2020
Butt Boy (2020)
When you hear the premise, it sounds like a joke, like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes or something. Then you actually see the film and realize how well-made and clever it is, and a sense of pleasure sweeps over you.
Posted Apr 10, 2020
Sea Fever (2020)
A fun, exciting, aquatic-themed B-movie with no pretensions other than to offer some decent thrills.
Posted Apr 9, 2020
We Summon the Darkness (2020)
Enormously fun to watch, thanks to sharp dialogue, good performances, and a devilish sense of mischief.
Posted Apr 8, 2020
The Other Lamb (2020)
A smart, provocative chiller with a strong perspective.
Posted Apr 2, 2020
Slay the Dragon (2020)
If you care about fair voting, you probably won't see a more vital documentary this year, regardless of your political affiliation.
Posted Apr 1, 2020
Banana Split (2020)
A teen comedy that combines the emotional honesty of an '80s John Hughes flick with a very modern social media-influenced sensibility.
Posted Mar 26, 2020
A thoroughly baffling work that has to be seen to be believed. And aficionados of movies that are crazy-town banana-pants absolutely should see it.
Posted Mar 21, 2020
With Haley Bennett's outstanding work at the center, the film is a true stunner.
Posted Mar 20, 2020
The Hunt (2020)
Undeniably provocative. This is an example of why no one should ever judge a movie without actually having seen it first. The Hunt is not an anti-conservative picture. It mocks everyone equally.
Posted Mar 14, 2020
Faith Based (2020)
Faith Based isn't nasty or blasphemous. Its jabs at Christian cinema are affectionate, and there's a core of sweetness in the story.
Posted Mar 13, 2020
Onward finds Pixar in full-on weird mode, and it's a surprisingly good look for the company.
Posted Mar 10, 2020
Saint Frances (2020)
A little treasure, a film so full of truth and warmth that you almost hate to see it end.
Posted Mar 7, 2020
The Way Back (2020)
The Way Back won't be Ben Affleck's biggest hit, but it's certain to be one of the most significant films on his resume. The actor gives a performance that's raw and real in a way we haven't seen from him before.
Posted Mar 6, 2020
Every horror buff should see this film.
Posted Mar 2, 2020
Blood on Her Name (2020)
If you're going to make a feature-length film version of a TV prank show, you need to go big or go home. The makers of Impractical Jokers: The Movie should have gone home, because they sure didn't go big.
Posted Feb 29, 2020
The Invisible Man (2020)
The best Invisible Man movie ever made, hands down, bar none.
Posted Feb 28, 2020
It's certain to please fans, but anyone curious about the MHA phenomenon could walk in cold, follow the general plot, and have a pretty good time.
Posted Feb 24, 2020
The Call of the Wild (2020)
If you're in the mood for a nice feel-good film that lifts you up and sends you out with a smile, then this is precisely what the doctor ordered.
Posted Feb 21, 2020
Standing Up, Falling Down (2020)
Funny and touching. Easily ranks among Crystal's best on-screen work.
Posted Feb 20, 2020
Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)
It's a low bar to clear, but this is easily one of the best video game movies ever made.
Posted Feb 14, 2020
A solid comedy with a point of view, fronted by a star who commands your attention for every single second.
Posted Feb 12, 2020
Satisfyingly bloody and wickedly funny.
Posted Feb 12, 2020
Olympic Dreams (2020)
It's a shame that such unprecedented access to the Olympic Village was squandered on a paper-thin story that goes nowhere and accomplishes nothing.
Posted Feb 11, 2020
The Lodge (2020)
Like the best works of horror, it has a way of burrowing into your brain, so that what you know is occurring below the surface is even scarier than what your eyes take in.
Posted Feb 10, 2020
Here are 109 of the most unabashedly enjoyable minutes you'll have at the movies this year.
Posted Feb 7, 2020
The Garden Left Behind (2019)
A compassionate, affecting indie.
Posted Feb 3, 2020
Gretel & Hansel (2020)
A little gem that oozes eeriness.
Posted Feb 1, 2020
Color Out of Space (2020)
A stylish, effective, often darkly funny chiller. As an added bonus, you also get alpaca jokes and Nicolas Cage at his most Nicolas Cage-iest.
Posted Jan 27, 2020
The Turning (2020)
This movie has possibly the worst ending of any major studio release I've ever seen.
Posted Jan 24, 2020
Assassin 33 A.D. (2020)
A racist, hate-filled work. The people who made Assassin 33 A.D. need to spend less time thumping their Bible and more time actually studying it.
Posted Jan 23, 2020
Bad Boys for Life (2020)
Maybe the third time really is the charm. I hated the original Bad Boys, and Bad Boys II is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Bad Boys for Life, to my great surprise, is astronomically better.
Posted Jan 17, 2020
The Wave (2020)
