Poster for Onward

Onward

10

The film may not soar to Pixar’s top pantheon of all-time greats, but it is undoubtedly high quality and remains thoroughly watchable throughout.

Poster for Parasite

Parasite

10

Continuing to make enjoyable and challenging works, Parasite ends up being one of the top films of 2019. Its potency in revealing the underlying tension between those of wealth and those of disparity, sadly, is one of those universal themes as we’ve crossed into the 21st Century that holds weight in most parts of the world.

Poster for Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog

8.3

It’s aiming to be fun and humorous enough to entertain throughout, and if that’s what you’re looking for, Sonic has enough juice to keep pace with the rest.

Poster for Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

3.3

Fittingly, one would imagine, the film itself plays out like Harley Quinn herself – brash, violent, audacious, and crazy – but also thinly defined, unfocused, cruel, in poor taste, and comical without being funny.

Poster for Little Women

Little Women

10

Little Women benefits from a solid cast, with Saoirse Ronan delivering another fantastic performance worthy of the highest accolades.

Poster for Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems

9.1

Uncut Gems is, appropriately, a bit of a ‘diamond in the rough,’ lengthy and sometimes uneven, but has so many positive facets that hold the attention throughout, even during moments that are a bit hard to watch, mostly because we see Howard make fatal mistakes just when his salvation is within reach.

Poster for 1917

1917

10

1917 is often a riveting and a unique way to pull off a full-scale war movie, and to do it in a way that the theatrical experience is essential.

Poster for Ford v Ferrari

Ford v Ferrari

9.1

It’s not a documentary, but a story to get us to get out of the ride feeling exhilarated.

Poster for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

6.7

That sense of finality seems glossed over with The Rise of Skywalker, which trades in melancholy for perpetual exhilaration and distractions from letting such weight sink in. In this way, the film ceases to satisfy longtime fans, even if the results are satisfactory.

Poster for The Irishman

The Irishman

10

The Irishman serves as Scorsese’s final Ozymandian monument to this life of fast money and power players building empires that will have no other monuments, as their amassed wealth and prestige eventually erodes to nothing and those who choose to partake to nobodies over time.

Poster for Outrageous Fortune

Outrageous Fortune

9.1

Outrageous Fortune is a fun, madcap comedy featuring two comic actresses at their most appealing. Midler and Long are irresistibly attractive, and their odd-couple pairing works wonders, even if they could barely stand each other when the cameras stopped filming.

Poster for Dark Waters

Dark Waters

8.3

The subject matter does manage to feel weighty as delivered and substantive enough to change a few minds in the audience about how much we should allow chemical corporations to go unchecked, especially when they make products for everyday home use.

Poster for Real Men

Real Men

7.5

Silly and surreal, Real Men manages to be a comedy that will likely grow on many viewers willing to tune in to its oddball wavelength. It’s proper to call it an uneven misfire of sorts, but it remains an enjoyable one.

Poster for Wild Style

Wild Style

9.1

It remains one of the best films ever made about hip-hop and features so much rare footage of rap’s first generation that it is not only a solid film but essential, time-capsule worthy stuff to preserve.

Poster for Knives Out

Knives Out

8.3

As a suspense vehicle, there is more than enough to keep eyes riveted in how things will unravel for such a kooky cast of characters, all played with impeccable gusto by a terrific ensemble of actors.

Poster for Bombshell

Bombshell

9.1

The talented troupe of actors who remarkably put a human face and deeper emotional resonance to the reports that we often only just read about happening in the news.

Poster for Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Girls Just Want to Have Fun

5.8

It’s a mixed bag of mediocrity, too uninspired to make any waves, yet it is mostly harmless, with an appealing cast, and has some very good dance sequences to make it fun to watch in spots.

Poster for Who's Harry Crumb?

Who's Harry Crumb?

3.3

Candy is a much better comedian and actor than this film would suggest, though it continues to showcase that he is good at playing zany characters as he would so often do on SCTV. The Naked Gun did most of this in a much better and funnier fashion just a year prior.

Poster for In Fabric

In Fabric

7.5

It is a bizarre and at times uneven piece, and perhaps a bit long and meandering for its type, but there is enough ingenuity in the story to keep things interesting. Good characterizations and a quality cast of performers also help bring the ideas to life.

Poster for Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare

1.6

There’s something to be said when even Robert Englund’s feelings on Freddy’s Dead is that it was the one where the series clearly jumped the shark.

Poster for Fletch Lives

Fletch Lives

5

Chevy Chase does deliver funny characterizations and the wit, enough to suggest the film is better than its reputation, but it’s still a sizable step down from the delights of the first Fletch.

Poster for The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

10

While the core themes may be elusive to some viewers, The Lighthouse remains a remarkable achievement in character interplay and psychological tension, keeping one’s eyes on the screen even when we’re not sure we want to see what’s showing.

Poster for Terminator: Dark Fate

Terminator: Dark Fate

5

Reality echoes the plot of the film, as the more technologically advanced the Terminator the less chance humanity has a chance of emerging in the end. As with all Terminator films, humanity wins the day, at least until the inevitable sequel, spinoff, or reboot, where we can dance the same dance one more time.

Poster for Gemini Man

Gemini Man

4.2

All in all, despite handsome specs and a cast and director that might look good on paper, the chemistry is just not there, whether in front of or behind the camera. This Gemini Man is far from a gem.
