Can’t say I’m clamoring for more of this type of risible spy thriller that’s absurdly expensive to make with not much to show for it. Review

This is the most inept, boring, pointless movie… not sure why people even compliment the visuals as it’s visually garish + ugly! Review

Mélanie Laurent directs and stars in this French action comedy… the tone is a bit off but manages to still be quite entertaining thanks to exhilarating high-octane action and the fun chemistry of the female cast, notably Adèle Exarchopoulos. Review

Overall I find it more enjoyable than Ferrari and the racing scenes, including the crashes, are well-staged, it uses CGI in an effective way to showcase the video game elements that enhance its storytelling. Review

I was expecting a silly fish-out-of-water (well, a lizard-out-of-its-terrarium in this case) comedy, but LEO turns out to be quite a gem of a movie about unlikely friendships, loyalty, and aging gracefully, plus there are some life lessons delivered in a fun but endearing way. Review

It’s a well-acted two-hander starring Sarsgaard and the always-watchable Jessica Chastain, Memory is a deeply layered and moving drama about past trauma and finding connection when you least expect it. Review

I just wish there were more of these profound moments to make the film more memorable than it is. Perhaps it’s best to leave it as a stage adaptation. Review

There is plenty to marvel at in Poor Things, but in the end, it’s Bella’s odyssey of self-discovery that makes the film worth watching, beautifully realized by Stone and the excellent ensemble cast. Review

Origin is a towering achievement, adapting a non-fiction book as a narrative film is tricky, but she manages to weave an impressively engaging, deeply moving, and thought-provoking piece. Review

Despite the thrilling race sequences, Ferrari lacks a certain oomph (or vroom in this case) to mark a memorable comeback. Review

The film takes a while to get going but gets more engaging once it gets into gear. Overall I think Troughton did a good job crafting an atmospheric and intriguing thriller with an effective less-is-more approach. Review

Love his quirky but warmhearted sense of humor and imaginative creativity. His Wonka version has just the right amount of kookiness, magical whimsy, and heart that’s perfect for the holiday season. Review

Kingsley, Harris, and Curtin make for an unlikely but fun trio, while Quon did an outstanding job as Jules in a silent performance with just her expression and body language. Review
