Poster for The Highwaymen

The Highwaymen

5

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

9

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.

Poster for The Dirt

The Dirt

3.5

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.

Antoine Griezmann: The Making of a Legend

5.5

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

Waiting For The Punchline

7

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.

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

Poster for Triple Frontier

Triple Frontier

7.9

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

6.5

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?

Poster for Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel

7.5

It certainly isn’t a top-tier Marvel movie, but Captain Marvel is a thoroughly entertaining and engaging new chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Poster for Isn't It Romantic

Isn't It Romantic

5

Though I appreciate the film’s message and some of its genre-awareness, as well as Liam Hemsworth’s performance, Isn’t It Romantic is a largely forgettable parody that follows the same stale formula that it’s trying to lampoon.

Poster for Paddleton

Paddleton

7.5

Paddleton won’t be on anyone’s radar twelve months from now, but it is a fairly realistic and utterly relatable film about learning to accept the inevitable and saying goodbye.

Poster for Green Book

Green Book

6.5

Green Book is, indeed, a lightweight feel-good film for a certain kind of audience that intends no harm. But Green Book is, in my opinion, also an incredibly tone-deaf film to champion in a year that gave us Black Panther, BlackKklansman, and so on and so forth.

High Flying Bird

8.5

A thought-provoking, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it heist-like sports drama, High Flying Bird is Steven Soderbergh’s version of Ballers and Moneyball, and I loved almost every minute of it.

Poster for Vice

Vice

7.5

It may not be great art or particularly thought-provoking, but what Adam McKay’s Vice does have going for it is that even though it can be read as a superficial tonal mess, it is a wildly entertaining film.

Poster for Arctic

Arctic

9

A riveting story of survival, and an outstanding actor’s vehicle for Mads Mikkelsen who gives a remarkable, tortured, and quietly moving performance in this lone survivor film that will draw comparisons to films like 127 Hours and The Revenant.

Poster for Velvet Buzzsaw

Velvet Buzzsaw

6

A strange film that I had a lot of fun with. Though it does seem like Gilroy didn’t exactly know whether he wanted to make a smart and cutting film about the art world or a fun horror film about that world, the end result is undeniably watchable even if it isn’t quite as effective or thought-provoking as I wanted it to be.

Poster for Burning

Burning

10

A meditation on class struggle and youthful frustration and loneliness in the form of a mystery film.

Poster for The Favourite

The Favourite

9.5

This might be his best work yet thanks in some part to a terrific screenplay that juggles multiple story angles and tones while still holding its riveting narrative core — a power struggle disguised as a love triangle.

Poster for Polar

Polar

4.5

A hyper-stylized and immature John Wick-esque action vehicle with obnoxious, head-ache inducing editing, pornographic scenes, and a wasted Mads Mikkelsen performance.

Poster for Cold War

Cold War

9

A film that will chill the hearts of its viewers due to the tragic and heartbreakingly rough journey of love these hapless lovers endure over the course of the film’s barely 90 minute runtime.

Shyamalan is ultimately unable to mix and match the best of both worlds from Unbreakable and Split.

Poster for Fyre

Fyre

7.7

I was shaking my head in disbelief (and swearing in disbelief, by the way) from start to finish of this jaw-dropping and brilliantly paced documentary with fascinating access to the chaos of the failed festival.

Poster for IO

IO

5.5

IO‘s complete predictability and lack of momentum stop it from becoming as memorable or worthwhile as its themes suggested it would be.

Poster for Before the Frost

Before the Frost

8

An impressive Danish period drama that is buoyed up by an engrossing and deeply felt performance from Danish screen legend Jesper Christensen.
