Those expecting a straightforward horror movie may be disappointed in “The Lodge,” a deliberately paced thriller that delivers more sinister feels than actual scares. This nightmare-inducing film is as unsettling as they come, a wildly unpredi... Read the full review »

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a hot commodity, especially in the #MeToo movement era, and “On the Basis of Sex” is yet another ardently enthusiastic puff piece about one of the most influential women of our time. The film is a s... Read the full review »

Yes, “Aquaman” is loud, dumb, and ridiculous, but you can’t say it doesn’t fit the character perfectly. It may be the movie Arthur Curry’s alter-ego deserves, an epic spectacle of ludicrous joy that’s as dreadfully terrible as it is th... Read the full review »

Glass (2019)

Glass (2019)

2 / 10
M. Night Shyamalan has always been a filmmaker who seems a bit too full of himself, a disagreeable trait that manifests through his writing and directing style. This has never been more evident than with his latest pet project “Glass,” a long-... Read the full review »

Director Pawel Pawlikowski‘s “Cold War” is a melancholy anti-romance that’s filled with as much heartbreak as passion. The love story between a woman and an older man is one that you’ve seen many times onscreen before, but there’s some... Read the full review »

Nicole Kidman is the only bright spot in “Destroyer,” a grim yawner of lackluster brooding from director Karyn Kusama. This stale noir thriller does little new or exciting, and eventually falls into the same old trappings that we’ve all seen... Read the full review »

The main problem with “Private Life” is that the story feels too personal. The film, from writer and director Tamara Jenkins, will likely be unrelatable to anyone who hasn’t experienced the pains of infertility. When you get right down to it... Read the full review »

Vice (2018)

Vice (2018)

4 / 10
The satirical biopic “Vice,” a film about the rise of Washington insider (and eventual Vice President) Dick Cheney, is director Adam McKay‘s version of big screen target practice that’s aimed squarely at one of the country’s most-hated m... Read the full review »

There’s an unexpected sincerity to “Bumblebee,” the latest spinoff movie based on the popular Hasbro Transformers toys. It’s the first of the obnoxious, bloated franchise that’s legitimately a good movie. This crowd-pleaser has a nostalg... Read the full review »

If anything, “Mary Poppins Returns” proves that the House of Mouse is a dependable charm machine when it comes to live action musicals. The new original songs don’t fare as well. Most are dreadful, which is shame because the singing is quite... Read the full review »

One of the greatest things about anthology films is that with a selection of shorts tied together, it’s okay if one isn’t as strong as the others because there’s always a new story just around the corner. In “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,... Read the full review »

“Can God forgive us?” Once that line is uttered by Michael (Philip Ettinger), a radical environmental activist and soon-to-be father, it gets in Reverend Toller’s (Ethan Hawke) head. He agonizes over the question as his outlook on salvation... Read the full review »

Roma (2018)

Roma (2018)

6 / 10
In a year of films that shine the spotlight on strong female characters, “Roma” is so deeply personal that it stands out from the rest. Writer-director Alfonso Cuarón taps into his own childhood to tell the story of the women who raised him,... Read the full review »

I’m not quite sure what to make of “Vox Lux,” a film that may be the only one I’ve ever seen that could be a good contender for both an Oscar as well as a Razzie. I loved it but also hated it, and this paradox is what makes the thing so da... Read the full review »

When you know a particular review is going to be poorly received because you differ from the popular opinion, human nature dictates that you put off writing about said film for as long as possible. The time has come when I can no longer wait to sh... Read the full review »

If your traditional holiday movie night feels stale and could use a little pick-me-up, the bloody festive “Anna and the Apocalypse” may be the zombie Christmas musical you didn’t know you needed. This delightfully imperfect romp is what happ... Read the full review »

Somebody send a wizard, stat, because “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” needs a heavy dose of magic. This sequel to 2016’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is a too long, too weak, too confusing jumble of characters... Read the full review »

Thanks to the harassment allegations against actor Kevin Spacey, “Billionaire Boys Club” never really got much of a chance at the box office. While many involved with the film will likely seek to pin the blame on Spacey’s disturbing shenanig... Read the full review »
