Poster for The Sun Is Also a Star

The Sun Is Also a Star


Credit The Sun Is Also a Star for trying to stray outside the usual lines, even as it hits those same formulaic goalposts.

Poster for Trial by Fire

Trial by Fire


Crushing in its familiarity, gut wrenching in its specifics, Trial by Fire is a tough but worthy reminder of the illusion of fairness.

Poster for The Hustle

The Hustle


Hathaway is a worthy Oscar winner, and though Wilson’s pony could really use more tricks, she can be funny. What either one of them saw in this inane script is beyond me and beneath both of them.

Poster for Tolkien



Tolkien turns an ambitious quest into a rather pedestrian journey.

Poster for The Intruder

The Intruder


The Intruder is a little creepy, too often unintentionally funny and in need of some work.

Long Shot


Long Shot has the heart, charm and hilarity to win you over long before then.

Poster for High Life

High Life


In the latest of many challenging indie roles he’s been choosing post-Twilight, Pattinson is again impressive. In a succession of unlikable characters, he gives Monte a gradually sympathetic layer, an element that becomes critical to making the film’s third act as effective, and ultimately hopeful, as it is.

Poster for Breakthrough



It truly is an incredible survival story, and by grounding it in the spirit of a distraught mother, Breakthrough finds some solid ground.

Poster for Penguins



Directors Alastair Fothergill and Jeff Wilson hit all the right benchmarks in their 76 minutes: a penguin adventure that will delight the kids told through often breathtaking footage plus, for the adults, nostalgic odes to parenting and classic hits.

Poster for Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace


It’s a thrilling, absolute can’t-miss testament to soul personified.

Poster for After



Director Jenny Gage, whose All This Panic mined genuine young adult emotion, is powerless to shape this material into anything more than plug-and-play emptiness.

Poster for Missing Link

Missing Link


The result is a film that’s confident but unassuming, fun without being silly, and satisfying from nearly every angle.

Poster for Shazam!



There really isn’t much Shazam! doesn’t deliver (okay, maybe it delivers a slightly bloated running time that includes two post-credits stingers), and as fast as you can say the magic word, DC has the best film in its universe since Bale was the Bat.

Poster for The Best of Enemies

The Best of Enemies


The Best of Enemies tells a good story and does plenty right while doing it, but is held back by missed opportunities.

Poster for The Public

The Public


The film has a respect for books and libraries that is indeed admirable, but by the time Goodson starts reading from Steinbeck on live TV, it becomes painfully evident what The Public wants to be when it grows up.

Poster for The Beach Bum

The Beach Bum


The Beach Bum is a mildly funny one trick pony, a rambling barfly always cracking up at his own jokes.

Poster for Dragged Across Concrete

Dragged Across Concrete


Zahler’s command of his playbook is hard to ignore. Though the glory of Concrete‘s payoff never quite rises to the breathtaking heights he’s hit before, his confident pace and detailed observations make for completely absorbing storytelling.

Poster for Five Feet Apart

Five Feet Apart


So much YA drama is anchored by this cheap enlightenment, and there is plenty here to wallow in.

Poster for Climax



It is 97 minutes of can’t-look-away intensity, a bold experience that may leave you asking “what just happened?” while you look for a nice place to lie down. But oh, those dreams you’ll be having.

Poster for Ruben Brandt, Collector

Ruben Brandt, Collector


Like a pop-up book full of highbrow surprises, Ruben Brandt, Collector is never less than delightful.

Poster for Apollo 11

Apollo 11


Apollo 11 stands even taller for its own humble nature. Even in this grand scale, the film never feels like it is trying to deliver a final word, in fact just the opposite.

Poster for A Madea Family Funeral

A Madea Family Funeral


Perry does manage a genuine laugh or two among the painful shenanigans, but the best thing about this Madea is that there are so many that have come before.

Poster for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World


Packed with excitement, sincerity and visual amazeballs, The Hidden World ties a can’t-miss ribbon on a wonderful trilogy.

Poster for Arctic



The result is never less than believable, a no muss, plenty of frigid fuss endurance tale that feels real. And real cold.
