Poster for The Wandering Earth

The Wandering Earth


Oddly structured but fast-paced and, at times, gorgeous, Frant Gwo’s The Wandering Earth is a spectacular blockbuster disaster film that could make Roland Emmerich jealous.

Poster for Raising Kratos

Raising Kratos


Brandon Akiaten’s God of War: Raising Kratos is a strong ‘making of’-documentary and a solid audiovisual text about the creation of a masterpiece, which, throughout the processes, never really looked like the shining star it would become.

Poster for Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Pokémon Detective Pikachu


Detective Pikachu is a delightful journey into the world of Pokémon that, in spite of some significant issues, hits most of the right notes thanks to excellent world-building, great visual effects, a super effective approach, and a charming voice-over performance.

Poster for Greta



Neil Jordan’s Greta is a poorly written and ludicrous thriller, as well as one of the worst movie-going experiences of the decade for me.

Long Shot


Ultimately bereft of any risky proposition or messaging, Jonathan Levine’s Long Shot is unlikely to stand the test of time or be as memorable to me as some of his previous beloved efforts, but it is an amusing political acting vehicle for Charlize Theron to showcase her unreal and incredible range, as well as a fun but cursory satirization of Trump’s America. Still, though, this is my kind of romantic comedy.

Poster for At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal

At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal


Erin Lee Carr’s latest documentary is a disturbing, powerful, and damning eye-opener.

Poster for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile


Buoyed up immensely by a beguiling career-best performance from Zac Efron, Joe Berlinger’s Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is a skin-deep and slightly unfocused exploration of deception, enchantment, and denial.

Poster for Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame


Avengers: Endgame is an incredible and overwhelming achievement. It is the most heart-wrenching and most satisfying comic book film I’ve ever seen. It might be Marvel Studios’ finest hour, so to speak.

Poster for The Upside

The Upside


If you have experienced the French original, you will probably be disappointed by the inferior Americanized version, which lifts entire jokes and scenes from the original film with little success.

Poster for The Curse of La Llorona

The Curse of La Llorona


A predictable and tiring experience, this film suffers from many issues that I believe stem from the screenplay.

Poster for Hellboy



It is one step forward, and three steps back for the Hellboy-film series, which has gained ultraviolence and lost character, affection, and heart.

Poster for The Silence

The Silence


Leonetti’s adaptation of Tim Lebbon’s novel is drab, humdrum, and trite.

Poster for Unicorn Store

Unicorn Store


Brie Larson’s debut feature, Unicorn Store, is a quirky 90-minute millennial coming-of-age film that doesn’t quite work, in part, thanks to it being tonally uneven and unfunny.

Poster for Shazam!



Doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it is a sweet, colorful, and delightful superhero film about wish-fulfillment and the importance of family.

Poster for Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary


Just another average horror film with cheap scares, poor pacing, and missed opportunities, even though there are some haunting horror movie images here and there.

Poster for The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley

The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley


A fascinating overview of the propping up of a biomedical disruptor and the crippling revelations that tore Holmes’ deceptions to shreds. But it is merely skin-deep, and if you want to tell the story of a con artist such as Holmes you have to pierce the skin of the subject.

Poster for The Highwaymen

The Highwaymen


The Highwaymen is a listless buddy road movie with an ax to grind with celebrity culture and the media.

Poster for Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts


Deliberately paced and sinful-to-the-bone, May el-Toukhy’s Dronningen is a remarkable, stylish tragedy about gender-roles and an abuse of power.

The Dirt


Though it is superficial, it may end up being ‘good enough’ for them, and it most definitely tells a more honest story than Bohemian Rhapsody did, but The Dirt is, nevertheless, a tired, uninvolving, and, frankly, unpleasant music biopic.

Poster for Antoine Griezmann : The Making of a Legend

Antoine Griezmann : The Making of a Legend


It really is nothing more than a glimpse. The Making of a Legend is a much too hasty, superficial, and unbalanced documentary.

Poster for Waiting For The Punchline

Waiting For The Punchline


As a fan of Kinda Funny and Nick Scarpino, I can say that I greatly enjoyed watching this documentary, even though I think the documentary’s somewhat wide scope warranted, at the very least, a larger runtime.

Poster for Us



It is confident, tonally-flexible, thought-provoking, and rewarding.

Poster for Triple Frontier

Triple Frontier


Triple Frontier is the early contender for Best Dad Movie of the Year precisely because it isn’t a gloriously patriotic thriller but rather a heist film blindsided by gold fever and the heart-wrenching consequences of thievery. J. C. Chandor’s gripping heist epic trips once or twice due to, at times, ponderous pacing, but it is, from start to finish, buoyed up by its all-star cast.

Poster for Leaving Neverland

Leaving Neverland


It may be the final nail in the coffin that forces you to rethink your stance on the Michael Jackson allegations — after all, it’s impossible to ignore this much smoke — but it isn’t a particularly great documentary. Though I’m sure Dan Reed was more interested in letting Robson and Safechuck tell their truth than making a perfect piece of journalism, and, frankly, who can blame him?
