Poster for The Seagull

The Seagull


Getting the competing themes to work in unison is no easy feat, and this latest film version is a well-intentioned testament to that very challenge.

Poster for Adrift



The film’s tale is truly compelling, and it does deliver satisfying stretches while staying cautious of any narrative risks that might seem disrespectful.

Poster for Disobedience



Weisz, McAdams are Nivola are all wonderful, crafting resonant characters as Lelio slowly builds the drama of a conflicting, scandalous triangle.

Poster for Book Club

Book Club


Book Club can’t dig any more than surface deep, and even with all this talent, it never shows the confidence in character that elevates Meyers’s best.

Poster for Oh Lucy!

Oh Lucy!


Sneaky in the ways it touches you. Light and breezy on the outside, it’s a film with a joyful heart that can’t be denied.

Poster for Tully



There’s enough brash boundary pushing to make Tully feel like a film we haven’t seen before, and one we’re glad that’s here.

Poster for Foxtrot



Through Foxtrot, Maoz and his stellar performers are speaking with a stylish and bittersweet elegance. Listen.

Poster for You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here


T offers a rich cinematic experience, with a filmmaker and actor working in glorious tandem to soak each frame with meaning.

Poster for Super Troopers 2

Super Troopers 2


The verdict is pretty simple: if you liked the first one, you’ll like Super Troopers 2.

Poster for Where Is Kyra?

Where Is Kyra?


The pace may seem achingly slow at times, the message a tad too manufactured at others, but Pfeiffer is always there to keep your attention from wandering.

Poster for Blockers



Yes, the points come on a bit strong time and again, but the cast (especially Mann) keeps it lively and relatable.

The Leisure Seeker


Hardly wanders beyond the Going in Style end of the pool.

Poster for Acrimony



It’s contrived and obvious at nearly every turn...

Poster for Pacific Rim: Uprising

Pacific Rim: Uprising


The actors pose more than they move, and even the cheapest of attempts at emotional manipulation seem too much for this film to handle.

Poster for The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin


It all flows so fast and furiously funny, it’s easy to forget how hard it is to pull off such effective satire.

Poster for 7 Days in Entebbe

7 Days in Entebbe


The payoff the film needs to resonate as more than a well-produced history lesson never materializes, and it leaves shrugging its shoulders at the elusive nature of peace.

Poster for Love, Simon

Love, Simon


T becomes a sweet, entertaining teen romance, and it just might make some audience members feel a little less alone.

Poster for The Hurricane Heist

The Hurricane Heist


Won’t tax you your brain, but it doesn’t want to. It just wants you to have fun.

Poster for Gringo



Runs in many directions without ending up anywhere worthwhile, and you’re left wondering just what the point was anyway.

Poster for Death Wish

Death Wish


Roth seems to think he’s revamped the franchise as some sort of satire, but he’s wildly off the mark.

Poster for Midnighters



Drawing heavily from a neo-noir party planner, Midnighters is a capably entertaining diversion, not quite a can’t-miss event.

Poster for Annihilation



The work of a top-tier genre filmmaker, and a challenging journey offering many rewards for those with no appetite for spoon feedings.

Poster for In the Fade

In the Fade


Worth seeing? Absolutely, and Kruger’s performance will likely linger even when the film’s voice does not.

Poster for Samson



There’s a story here, full of wonder, cruelty, betrayal, intrigue and redemption. Samson leaves so much unexplored, just wanting the credit for telling it.
