7.5/10 57% Call Me Brother (2017) The story and script are brilliant in how well it manages our emotions of confusion and disgust. It feeds these emotions little by little as if coaxing us into a trap.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet Expulsion (2020) Once you get past its low-budget limitations, you're going to have fun. It's smart, and the build to the end, when the gimmick spins wildly out of control, makes for a fascinating payoff.‐ Film Threat

5/10 No Score Yet Body Swap (2020) The swapping story itself has a great deal of potential. It just needed a few more rewrites to inject some energy and more reps for the actors to feel comfortable with their roles and character objectives.‐ Film Threat

6/10 No Score Yet Neon Days (2020) Neon Days gets just enough of a recommendation for me. You've got to prepare yourself before going it, and really mine for the treasures buried deep within its story.‐ Film Threat

7/10 33% The New Mutants (2020) If you want a few jump scares and a superhero Breakfast Club, give The New Mutants a chance. With the proper expectations, it is not as bad as you think it is. Just keep those expectations really low.‐ Film Threat

7/10 No Score Yet Transference (2020) Though it could have gone farther, it's clear that Cannon and Patwardhan did their research and skillfully worked it into the story. The result makes Transference worth watching.‐ Film Threat

7/10 No Score Yet Party with Me (2020) I would have loved to see the drama pushed a little further, and Harper and friends' actions pushed a bit further out of my comfort zone. Party With Me is a good story, nonetheless.‐ Film Threat

7.5/10 No Score Yet Who's on Top? LGBTQs Summit Mt. Hood (2021) What's essential about films like Who's on Top? is how much the world is gradually expanding from the closet to the highest point on earth-so, these stories must be told.‐ Film Threat

7.5/10 53% Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020) Peninsula is a fantastic zombie movie, a proper sequel to Train to Busan, and yes, I want to see another one. But the human story that worked so well in the first is missing, which means we have yet another sequel that doesn't live up to the original.‐ Film Threat
