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.

Poster for Searching



A mystery with as much to say about parenting as posting, and a remarkably in-the-moment statement.

Poster for Papillon



The parts are all here and competently assembled, but the punch of the bigger themes Noer and Guzikowski are aiming for never land flush.

Poster for The Meg

The Meg


The film has moments of promise that are quickly snuffed out by exposition that’s neither needed, wanted or interesting.

The Spy Who Dumped Me


A goofy, enjoyable time-waster.

You may know where The Cakemaker is going, but getting there is a sweet and satisfying trip.

Poster for Unfriended: Dark Web

Unfriended: Dark Web


Does a great job upholding the integrity of the “real time computer screen” gimmick. But from the opening setup, this one carries more eerie authenticity.

Poster for The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2


Does offer plenty to like but little of it can match the style or the vibe of the original.

Poster for Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace


Broaching a variety of relevant social concerns without ever raising its voice, yet cutting so deeply you may not get out of the theater with dry eyes.

Poster for Skyscraper



Wins you over with pure “are you not entertained?” tenacity.
