For those of you who still only know Melissa McCarthy from her “fatty fall down” empty-headed comedy films, please go see “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” so you’ll learn once and for all that she’s a phenomenal dramatic actress. It’s not... Read the full review »

The slick, cool thriller “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” provides the perfect escapism for adults. The film, based on David Lagercrantz‘s novel, is as dreary and sordid as its source material. But this film is well written and acted, and Fe... Read the full review »

Here’s what’s interesting about director Bryan Singer‘s Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody”: it’s a film made by a fan for fans, critics be damned. This isn’t an insightful, in-depth look at the band and its superstar lead singer Freddi... Read the full review »

With equal parts midnight movie humor, disgustingly bloody horror violence, and retro patriotic war movie, “Overlord” could be accused of being overly ambitious. Maybe it should be accused of that. But somehow this splatterfest feels as if it... Read the full review »

I was unexpectedly delighted by “Nobody’s Fool,” cinema powerhouse Tyler Perry‘s recent foray into the R-rated, raunchy romantic comedy market. It wasn’t the film I expected but I laughed — a lot — at some truly inspired gags. This f... Read the full review »

The simple, straightforward “Hunter Killer” is as basic as they come, but its solid storytelling makes this mainstream military thriller one that’s worth watching. This is familiar territory, especially in the line of submarine films, but th... Read the full review »

Venom (2018)

Venom (2018)

2 / 10
As far as Marvel superhero movies go, “Venom” ranks as one of the worst. This watered down bore is dumb, loud, and brash with nothing to say. The film suffers from an identity crisis with so many jarring shifts in tone that I struggled to stay... Read the full review »

Mid90s (2018)

The realistic and raw “Mid90s,” from first-time director Jonah Hill, rides the wave of coming-of-age insecurities with a hearty dose of skate culture nostalgia. This ode to adolescent angst would make an excellent companion piece to this year... Read the full review »

“First Man” isn’t flashy at all. If you were expecting an eye-popping, thrill-a-minute action film about NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, you’re going to leave disappointed. If you’re a space nerd and know NASA’s history, yo... Read the full review »

Writer / director David Lowery‘s “The Old Man & the Gun” paints a soulful picture of a life well lived, both onscreen and off. It’s only fitting that this film is supposedly Robert Redford‘s last movie, one final performance before he re... Read the full review »

The disappointing “Night School” mostly squanders a promising setup. The story of a group of misfits who bond together while in an evening class studying to get their GEDs isn’t funny enough to rate as a first class comedy. The cast is huge... Read the full review »

When you hear that a film is being lauded as ‘important,’ it may conjure up images of a saccharine after-school special. Thankfully, “The Hate U Give” avoids falling into that trap. Based on the bestselling book by Angie Thomas, the film... Read the full review »

The sheer arrogance of “Bad Times at the El Royale,” a film that suffocates at the hands of its own grandstanding, is a tedious lesson for aspiring filmmakers: never, ever make a talky film if your dialogue isn’t compelling. This dark crime... Read the full review »

“Smallfoot” isn’t like other family oriented movies. It’s not the animation (which is barely acceptable, with its ugly bland blue hues and washed-out backgrounds), it’s not the far-from-loveable characters, and it’s not the toe-tapping... Read the full review »

Talk about leaving the theater with a sense of dejection. I’m sure that isn’t what controversial filmmaker Michael Moore intended with his new documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a left-leaning film about America’s current ‘hell in a handba... Read the full review »

The unexpected dark comedy “A Simple Favor” is a little too twisty (and twisted) to make the grade, but its two charismatic female leads make it slightly worth watching. In the same vein as “Gone Girl” (but far less cynical), this uber-sty... Read the full review »

“Assassination Nation” is a wannabe feminist revenge fantasy, a heavy-handed, metaphor-filled, angry little film about toxic masculinity that’s often too clever for its own good. The film’s high energy atmosphere, talented cast, and trail... Read the full review »

The seedy side of 1980s Detroit during the height of the crack epidemic sets the scene for “White Boy Rick,” a mildly successful film based on the true story of a blue collar, not-quite-legal gun salesman Richard Wershe Sr. (Matthew McConaughe... Read the full review »

“Peppermint” is one of those revenge movies that fails to stand out from the crowd. It’s not great nor is it bad, it just manages to exist. If you’re a fan of violent payback films, this one likely won’t disappoint. It may leave a rotten... Read the full review »

Based on the international best-selling autobiography, “Papillon” brings the epic story of Henri “Papillon” Charrière (Charlie Hunnam) back to the screen with a gritty and violent streak. It’s a dark and sometimes horrific tale of an in... Read the full review »
