When a franchise’s success has been built upon a foundation of big, dumb, fun, delivering anything less creates the danger of being seen as a disappointment by fans. Such is the case with “Bad Boys for Life,” a mostly enjoyable yet ultimatel... Read the full review »

The dead of winter is the time studios like to shove their bottom-basement junk into theaters, bringing us movies that are instantly forgettable and brimming with mediocrity. The female-driven buddy comedy “Like A Boss” is a great example. Thi... Read the full review »

Arctic (2019)

Arctic (2019)

6 / 10
The man vs. nature survival film “Arctic” isn’t just another clichéd tale of the human spirit. Instead of taking the wholly predictable route, the mostly silent film (there are only a few lines of dialogue) relies on the charisma and talent... Read the full review »

1917 (2019)

1917 (2019)

7 / 10
When it comes to impressive achievements in filmmaking, “1917” deserves to be near the top of the conversation. This war film, which unfolds in two hours of real time, is shot to appear as one continuous take. Thankfully, it is so much more th... Read the full review »

Céline Sciamma, writer and director of “Portrait of a Lady on Fire,” calls her period film a “manifesto on the male gaze.” This is the most accurate, elegant description of her story of a romance between two French women in the late 1700s... Read the full review »

Brothers and co-directors Josh and Benny Safdie are two of the most exciting names working in modern independent cinema, so their film “Uncut Gems” debuted alongside a shadow of grandiose expectations. The bottom line is that the film is good... Read the full review »

Think of “The Report” as an educational lecture rather than a piece of entertainment. The film tells the story of Daniel Jones (Adam Driver), lead investigator for the U.S. Senate’s sweeping study into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation... Read the full review »

Cats (2019)

Cats (2019)

4 / 10
Sometimes a movie struts its awfulness with such glee that it becomes an enjoyably sadistic pleasure rather than a chore to watch. Such is the case with “Cats,” the big screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1982 musical that became one... Read the full review »

Director Clint Eastwood tells his own story of an American hero with “Richard Jewell,” a shallow portrait of a security guard who was wrongly accused of bombing Atlanta’s Centennial Park in 1996. Jewell reported the suspicious device before... Read the full review »

Everything about the 2019 version of “Little Women” seems like it would be a slam dunk. There’s the talented Greta Gerwig at the helm, both writing and directing her sophomore effort after her phenomenal 2017 film “Lady Bird.” There’s... Read the full review »

When it comes to “Star Wars,” being a fan comes first and a film critic comes second. I was four years old when I saw the original, and I’ve been a huge devotee of all things in the galaxy for forty plus years. This isn’t a review written... Read the full review »

Waves (2019)

Waves (2019)

4 / 10
Good intentions don’t always make for good movies, and “Waves” plays like a second-rate music video made by a pretentious film student. There are some deeply meaningful themes that fall by the wayside in this incredibly boring melodrama abou... Read the full review »

When it comes to constructing a successful sequel, sometimes it’s best not to mess with a proven formula. Such is the case with “Jumanji: The Next Level,” an energetic, rollicking, ridiculously amusing part two to the much-loved 2017 reboot... Read the full review »

An average documentary with uneven storytelling, “Knock Down the House” is worth watching if you’re a fan of the current pro-minority and pro-female movement in politics. In the long run this isn’t a memorable movie, but throughout its dur... Read the full review »

Martin Scorsese’s forte is the epic gangster movie, and he is arguably the master of the genre. Adding another first-rate film to his cinematic belt, the director yet again illustrates why he is one of the greatest directors of all time with “... Read the full review »

“The Good Liar” is a low-key thriller for gray hairs. Based on the novel by Nicholas Searle, this cerebral, talky tale of revenge and deception is an okay movie that’s boosted by two great leads. Career con man Roy (Ian McKellen) has found... Read the full review »

It’s a dull day in the neighborhood, boys and girls. What a letdown “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” based on the friendship between Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks) and jaded journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), turns out to be. This pointl... Read the full review »
