Won't You Be My Neighbor?

8

The documentary may read at large stretches like a greatest hits reel of Rogers’ program, but in a sense that is enough to make the point.

Incredibles 2

A really good Pixar movie. It is a fairly good superhero movie. As a long-awaited follow up to The Incredibles, it doesn’t stack up as strongly.

Poster for Tag

Tag

6

A light, high concept comedy with a loose script and charismatic actors who are playfully working to hide the looseness.

The numerous issues with Superfly, surprisingly, do not take away from what makes the film compelling.

Undoubtedly a film whose intensity and psychological weight are palpable, unshakable entities.

Ocean's Eight

The strong acting, the lavish costume design, the snappy editing. It all adds up. But it isn’t the well-oiled machine that it thinks it is.

We get a great cast wielding an offbeat, close-quarters action story.

Does a lot of stuff brilliantly.

It isn’t style over substance, nor is it narrative over form. It is a seamless integration of great style and great narrative.

The jokes run thin early. The plot is uninspired and fails hard when it decides to play the heartstrings.

Poster for Upgrade

Upgrade

As much as the tone struggles to mesh, the core of Upgrade is jam-packed with entertainment value.

Adrift

A fine little survival picture retelling the story of an undoubtedly resourceful and determined person.

Poster for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story

4

It has the sense of being a dispassionate and inessential part of this ongoing Star Wars machine.

Poster for Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451

4

Strains to tap into contemporary technophobia, but it never grounds that in the source material that it borrows from.

Unless you’re a critic who dislikes partisanship even when it lines up with his political views, you will likely either love it or hate it.

Poster for Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2

8

Overall the comedy here is fairly tight. In a cinematic landscape that is bombarded with superhero movies of various quality, Deadpool is the IP we need right now.

Poster for Life of the Party

Life of the Party

4

Seeds are sown for characters to have genuine relationships with each other. These are largely abandoned, replaced with lackluster punchlines.

Poster for Breaking In

Breaking In

4

A no frills thriller that isn’t ashamed of its lack of depth.

There wasn’t enough juice in the premise to take the plot across the finish line.

It feels like a contrivance, because it is already a hard sell to buy the basic premise. Perhaps if the jokes were more powerful...

The revelation of the truth may not be as fun as the journey to it, but there is still a winding experience to enjoy.

Poster for Lean on Pete

Lean on Pete

A determined case study of grit yielding to desperation. Its characters act like beautifully imperfect...

Lives up to the hype if you enjoy the sheer bigness of the created universe...

It’s all very stylish...
