2/5 29% The War with Grandpa (2020) It's almost worth enduring for the sight of Walken in full Santa regalia trying to put the little girl oh his knee at ease. Whatever you are imagining, it's even better. Almost.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 69% The Glorias (2020) From the first frame we are put on notice that this will be a film in which the emotional truth of her life is given equal weight with the factual truths that, while accurate, cannot hope to convey the same power.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 81% Abominable (2019) As bland as its eponymous character. Worse, it's one long déjà vu experience of pre-fab whimsy and schmaltz whose greatest virtue is its very forgetablity.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 87% Hustlers (2019) The script written by director Lorene Scafaria is rife with references to just who got hurt when the bottom fell out of the market thanks to Wall Street elites.
