Poster for Tyrel



Amid heavy dialog that’s fast and free-flowing with an improvisational feel, the crowded mountain home becomes a nerve-wracking metaphor for the state of race relations.

Poster for Creed II

Creed II


But beyond all the button pushing, sentiment and nostalgia are characters, and this all falls like a tomato can in the fist round if we don’t have reason to care about them. We still do.

Poster for The Front Runner

The Front Runner


The dialogue is fast and smart, often evoking a more easily digestible Aaron Sorkin. Salient points are made and then rebutted through the precise timing and intricate blocking of an outstanding ensemble...

Poster for Instant Family

Instant Family


Always more fuzzy than consistently funny, Instant Family offers plenty of good feels backed up with some lived-in comfortability.

Poster for Boy Erased

Boy Erased


It is precisely this intimacy that fuels the film’s resonance, as one family’s story becomes a vessel for greater understanding. That’s no small achievement, and Boy Erased is no small triumph.

Poster for The Girl in the Spider's Web

The Girl in the Spider's Web


Always watchable, and engaging enough to keep you invested. But Lisbeth became memorable by being uniquely compelling, not merely satisfactory.

Poster for The Grinch

The Grinch


The Grinch is nearly as empty as Cindy Lou’s living room on Christmas morn.

Poster for Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody


Factual liberties are taken, timelines are sometimes carelessly misrepresented, and there’s a totally needless gag from Mike Myers, but whenever Bohemian Rhapsody is most unsteady, Queen’s music is there for a bailout.

Poster for Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy


Through first-hand insight and two towering performances, it finds a thread of hope in the ashes of a family’s nightmare.

Poster for Suspiria



It cements a vision of Suspiria that’s as ambitious and it is uncompromising, one that explores different definitions of horror while ultimately delivering more outright shocks and shivers than Argento ever attempted.

Poster for Mid90s



An often funny, sometimes startling and endlessly human film, Mid90s is a blast from the past that points to a bright filmmaking future for Jonah Hill.

Poster for Free Solo

Free Solo


In contrasting glorious human achievement with acceptable sacrifice, Free Solo becomes nearly unforgettable.

Poster for The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give


In trusting that YA audience with some bitter pills, The Hate U Give becomes a required dose for the rest of us.

Poster for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween


Has style, a winning cast, and winking nods to horror classics such as IT and Frankenstein.

Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale


Can’t completely deliver on its promise, it offers a gorgeous blast of color, sound and plot twists that are pretty fun to watch unravel.

Poster for All About Nina

All About Nina


The few moments where the film’s uncertainty breeds heavy-handedness can’t diminish her exciting potential as a writer and director.

Poster for The Old Man & the Gun

The Old Man & the Gun


The story is light and whimsical, but thanks to the veteran actors and the slyly understated direction, it’s got a frisky heart that won’t quit.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born


This film has talent everywhere, but it also has stirring things to say about love and sacrifice, about art and commerce, ambition and fame.

Poster for Smallfoot



Settles into a pleasantly entertaining mix of messages, music, and Looney Tunes-worthy pratfalls.

Poster for Blaze



With music such a big part of the film, Hawke’s decision to present it in its live, raw glory reaps big dividends.

Poster for Fahrenheit 11/9

Fahrenheit 11/9


Outside of one needless stunt at the Michigan governor’s mansion, Moore’s at his most forthright and committed.

Poster for A Simple Favor

A Simple Favor


Not what the trailer makes you think it is – which turns out to be the perfect setup for a film with plenty of head fakes that lead to a mischievous good time.

Poster for Peppermint



High on body count but low on substance, Peppermint tastes like a strange blend of committed and lazy.

Poster for Operation Finale

Operation Finale


Kingsley and Isaac make subject matter this unpleasant a joy to watch unfold, elevating Operation Finale with a moving contrast of soul.
