I really wanted to like “Marry Me,” a threadbare, undercooked rom-com released just in time for Valentine’s Day. At the risk of sounding like a disgruntled curmudgeon, I found this film to be neither funny nor romantic. Instead of embracing... Read the full review »

I’m a huge fan of “Jackass,” and Johnny Knoxville and crew have been making me laugh until I cried for two decades now. I was excited to see the gang back in action in “Jackass Forever,” a more mature (read: some cast members are either... Read the full review »

The delightfully goofy “Brian and Charles” is a sweet-natured, charming comedy that will appeal to all ages. The heartwarming story of a socially awkward and lonely inventor named Brian (David Earl) and his creation, a robot friend named Charl... Read the full review »

Feminist drama “Call Jane” is one of the more mainstream films about the hot-button topic of abortion rights, yet it never feels controversial. The film is based on a group of women in Chicago in the 1960s who called themselves the Janes, a ne... Read the full review »

A career-best performance from Rebecca Hall can’t save writer-director Andrew Semans‘ maddening “Resurrection,” an annoying yet deeply disturbing tale of psychological horror. The film bounces back and forth from traditional buttoned-up dr... Read the full review »

It is easy to be charmed by “Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul,” a very funny satirical comedy about the disgraced pastor of a megachurch (Sterling K. Brown) and his loyal and proud first lady (Regina Hall). Filmed in a faux documentary style, wr... Read the full review »

Master (2022)

5 / 10
There are too many misfires in “Master” that prevent it from achieving its true potential. The premise is compelling, the acting and directing is solid, but the finished product is a disappointing reminder of what it could have been. Professo... Read the full review »

“Cha Cha Real Smooth” is the type of independent film that mainstream audiences love, and that’s okay. In a year where the Sundance Film Festival served up a long list of mediocrity and disappointment, it’s no wonder that this movie stood... Read the full review »

I don’t know how to begin this review of “Fresh.” I loved the film so much, and I don’t want to spoil its twists, turns, and surprises before audiences get to experience it for the first time. It’s best to go in blind, and I will do my b... Read the full review »

The beautiful, touching “A Love Song” marks an impressive debut from writer / director Max Walker-Silverman. This quietly moving film is a simple story, well told. Featuring strong performances from Dale Dickey and Wes Studi, this is a sweet,... Read the full review »

A Hero (2021)

A Hero (2021)

7 / 10
It’s been said that no good deed goes unpunished, and “A Hero” is a deeply human film that hits home (and hits hard) with that idea. Writer / director Asghar Farhadi‘s Cannes Grand Prix award winner explores a reality where even the simple... Read the full review »

There is nothing unique or even memorable about “The 355,” director Simon Kinberg‘s film about a group of international agents who join forces to retrieve a dangerous top secret weapon. The set-up feels too familiar and formulaic, and doesn... Read the full review »

Cyrano (2022)

6 / 10
Although based on a stage musical, the big screen version of writer Erica Schmidt‘s “Cyrano” (who also penned the screenplay) would fare better without all of the song and dance. The mediocre tunes and too-simple lyrics (songs by Bryce and A... Read the full review »

Add “Don’t Look Up” to the list of movies that start with a good idea but fail miserably with execution. Despite a mega-wattage cast and Oscar winner Adam McKay writing and directing, nothing can save this overbearing and tiresome project. I... Read the full review »

It’s the Golden Rule when adapting a memoir to the screen: make sure your subject is interesting. This ultimately leads to the downfall of director George Clooney‘s “The Tender Bar,” based on author J.R. Moehringer’s 2006 autobiographica... Read the full review »
