Luce (2019)

Luce (2019)

8 / 10
Questions of identity, authority, allegations, and assumptions are raised in the suspenseful psychological drama, “Luce.” It’s best to go into this film knowing very little about the details and plot, because the surprises are not only revea... Read the full review »

The big-hearted indie drama “The Peanut Butter Falcon” does just about everything right. Here is a sentimental, heartwarming journey that manages to stay out of the groan-and-eye-rolling territory due to its universal story, timeless feel, Sou... Read the full review »

Folks love movies about killer sharks, and “47 Meters Down Uncaged,” the lame sequel to the 2017 moneymaker “47 Meters Down,” is as forgettable as they come. It’s the type of mild horror film that’s suitable for a 7th grade sleepover,... Read the full review »

In the opening credits of “The Farewell,” the film claims it is “based on an actual lie” — and it is. The bulk of the events portrayed in the movie actually happened to writer / director Lulu Wang, which makes for a very personal (if alm... Read the full review »

“Fight Club” meets “The Karate Kid” in the dark, savage, and absurd satire of toxic masculinity, “The Art of Self-Defense.” This movie is brimming with exactly the kind of offbeat, deadpan humor that I love. It’s the type of film tha... Read the full review »

Seldom does a film have its pulse so firmly on its audience’s heartbeat than “Angel Has Fallen,” the unnecessary addition to the “Olympus Has Fallen” and “London Has Fallen” trilogy. This is a movie with an abundance of mediocrity, f... Read the full review »

“Blinded by the Light” pissed me of so much that I don’t want to listen to Bruce Springsteen ever again. Yeah, I’m angry. This monotonous, lazy movie is a textbook example of why you can’t simply pump a film full of beloved pop songs a... Read the full review »

Take one cup of “Jumanji,” a heaping helping of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and a pinch of “the Goonies” and you’ll get “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” a peppy, goofy, live action adventure loosely based on the popular animated... Read the full review »

Creative types will likely relate to “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” the big screen adaptation of Maria Semple‘s 2012 novel. I felt an almost spiritual attachment to the titular character Bernadette Fox (Cate Blanchett), a star architect who... Read the full review »

I was close to walking out of “Good Boys,” the raunchy supposed comedy about a trio of twelve year old friends. Trapped in the theater made me restless because it didn’t take long to realize how sloppy, indifferent, unfunny, and charmless th... Read the full review »

Sometimes when you review a movie that looks so pointless, stupid, and downright atrocious, you must step back and consider its target audience. “The Angry Birds Movie 2” is a movie nobody wanted nor needed, yet it’s one that will thoroughly... Read the full review »

You could call me a “ride or die” fan of the extensive “Fast & Furious” franchise, movies that are packed with so much goofy fun that they always manage bring a smile to my face. The 18 year beloved legacy built by all the previous films h... Read the full review »

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is everything you could ask for from writer-director Quentin Tarantino. It’s his 9th film, and it showcases a maturity in his filmmaking vision that’s one for the cinematic history books. Here is the work of... Read the full review »

Southern California, 1965. It was a formative time in American music history, and “Echo in the Canyon,” an entertaining documentary about the musical history of the Laurel Canyon neighborhood of Los Angeles, doles out Sixties nostalgia by the... Read the full review »

Crawl (2019)

Crawl (2019)

4 / 10
You probably aren’t expecting much from “Crawl,” a low-budget killer gator thriller from director Alexandre Aja. It’s a good thing that you aren’t, because this movie is stuck in a cinematic purgatory between pure camp and too-sincere cr... Read the full review »

Stuber (2019)

Stuber (2019)

5 / 10
The flawed yet funny “Stuber” captures the retro 80s buddy comedy feel in a modern day setting. The movie is far from perfect but has it all: action, comedy, mystery, and adventure, all set on the streets of Los Angeles. It’s a typical even... Read the full review »

What did I just watch? That was the question running through my mind when the credits started to roll. Best viewed with an audience, “Midsommar” is not so much a movie you watch as one that you experience. It’s something of a cinematic orde... Read the full review »

Indie festival circuit darling “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” is one of the most pretentious films I have ever seen. Here is a film that’s so manipulative and so full of itself that its powerful message is lost among the chaos. It’s... Read the full review »

2019 may go down in the cinematic history books as the Year of Disappointments, and “Yesterday” unfortunately continues the trend. This is a case of not only a squandered premise, but an example where the trailer is far better than the finishe... Read the full review »

Hot button topics of gender equality and sexism in the workplace are tackled in “Late Night,” a disappointing, tepid film written by and starring Mindy Kaling. It’s great that Amazon Studios took a chance on a comedy that conveys a minority... Read the full review »
