“Solo: A Star Wars Story” is a real turd. It suffers greatly from a miscast lead (Alden Ehrenreich), a bland script (by Jonathan and Lawrence Kasdan), and plain vanilla direction from Ron Howard. There’s zero passion, zero charisma, zero cle... Read the full review »

I can count on one hand the movies I’ve walked out of over the years, and “Show Dogs” nearly proved to be too much for me to take. This wannabe buddy cop film about the unlikely pairing of FBI detective Frank (Will Arnett) and street smart R... Read the full review »

Kings (2017)

Kings (2017)

2 / 10
Movies like “Kings” are among the most poorly conceived projects of the indie film world. The routine story of a large foster family living in South Central Los Angeles is weak even when taken at face value, but set it against the backdrop of... Read the full review »

The amiable “Finding Your Feet” is a harmless love story for the AARP set. This formulaic and overly sentimental film is a feel-good tragedy of sorts, a tame, bittersweet movie that mom and grandma will love. On the eve of a celebration at he... Read the full review »

Campy fun rules the day in the home invasion movie “Breaking In,” a garden variety film that offers a slight twist from the typical genre story line. This isn’t one of the best of the class, but the film delivers what it promises and will li... Read the full review »

The sweetly bawdy “Book Club” is a film made for a specific target audience: women over 60. The comedy feels familiar, yet it’s one that you can’t help but like. If you’re on the fence about this one, let me make your decision easier: if... Read the full review »

I was not a fan of the first “Deadpool” movie nor am I fond of the Marvel character on which it’s based, but damn you, Ryan Reynolds: you’ve made this sequel a slam dunk. I contend that only a true fan can successfully make a movie that pl... Read the full review »

If you’re looking for a first-rate comedy with tons of laughs, “Life of the Party” is sure to disappoint. Wasted opportunities rule the day in this supposed comedy that’s not any fun. I’ve said it dozens of times but it bears repeating o... Read the full review »

Tully (2018)

4 / 10
As I was screening “Tully,” I started to get this gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach that later turned out to be a bout of foreshadowing. Somehow I knew that I was likely going to have an unpopular opinion on this film, the latest collab... Read the full review »

The loose remake of the 1987 Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell movie “Overboard” is a perfectly passable example of what I call ‘cotton candy’ entertainment. It’s light, fluffy, and makes you feel good until you get the inevitable too-sweet t... Read the full review »

Casting the lead role in a dark revenge thriller like “You Were Never Really Here” is tough because only truly talented and mesmerizing actors have the ability to pull it off. I saw it last year with Robert Pattinson in “Good Time” and now... Read the full review »

In the third Happy Madison feature made exclusively for Netflix, funnyman Adam Sandler teams up with director Robert Smigel (of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog fame) to deliver the enjoyable “The Week Of,” a very funny film that’s packed with g... Read the full review »

The bleak yet beautiful “Sweet Country” is a traditional western that’s eerily reflective of modern times. Set in the Australian outback instead of the wild west of the American frontier, the thematic parallels are no less alarming. A grim v... Read the full review »

The art house crowd should flock to “Where Is Kyra?,” a nuanced character study of an unemployed woman (Michelle Pfeiffer) who once lived a comfortable life and now finds herself teetering dangerously close to the poverty line. The script (by... Read the full review »

The true life story of the visionary P.T. Barnum and the birth of show business is celebrated in the cheery, sanitized fiction of “The Greatest Showman,” a crowd pleasing spectacle of a musical from director Michael Gracey. Barnum (Hugh Jackma... Read the full review »

The housing crash of 2009 destroyed many homeowners with a wave of foreclosures and bank repossessions. The desperation of the time makes the perfect setting for “Arizona,” the darkly funny film from director Jonathan Watson. When real estate... Read the full review »

I’ve never seen a film with so many missed opportunities as “Tiempo Compartido (Time Share),” an odd little indie drama from Mexico. The story of a family vacation gone horribly wrong emits a haunting sense that something deeply sinister is... Read the full review »

Some things just can’t be forgotten. Some things just can’t be unseen. Once you’ve watched “The Greasy Strangler,” it will continue to haunt your dreams. This film sets a new bar for deviant, depraved, shocking, bizarro cinema. If there... Read the full review »

Pity (2018)

With his wife in a coma, a lawyer (Yannis Drakopoulos) becomes addicted to the pity from the world around him. That’s the curious idea of “Pity,” the latest from director Babis Makridis and his co-screenwriter Efthymis Filippou (“The Lobst... Read the full review »
