92% Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) In its glorious extravagance, and its cheerful disinterest in apologizing for same, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey captures a certain essence of the Christmas spirit.‐ Mashable

25% Hillbilly Elegy (2020) Hillbilly Elegy sounds folksy, but conveys nothing. It's the "and neutral" of movies, taking up space to no end at all.‐ Mashable

86% Happiest Season (2020) Director Clea DuVall (who also wrote the film with Holland, aka Jane) isn't glossing over the Caldwells' problems but digging into them, slowly peeling away the feel-good comic veneer to reveal the hurt and anger simmering underneath.‐ Mashable

77% I Am Greta (2020) Likable, but not incredible... There's value in being reminded that there is a human beneath all those breathless headlines.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

87% Monsoon (2020) A graceful and poignant take on the immigrant experience. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

92% Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) By the end I was completely won over. The story's nonsense with a lot of weird stuff happening, but there was enough holiday cheer and an emotional core that I was able to forgive its flaws.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

83% Freaky (2020) It's fun to watch Kathryn Newton and Vince Vaughn play each other, but I think it runs out of steam as it goes on.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

68% Ammonite (2020) This is less a story about love than it is about loneliness... Kate Winslet is great as Mary Anning, wearing that isolation like a coat shielding her from the elements. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2020
90% The Climb (2020) It's often quite funny, but it's also sad. It's grounded, but with all these tiny touches of surrealism. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

25% Hillbilly Elegy (2020) Even though it's supposed to be an uplifting story about [J.D. Vance's] personal history, it felt pretty generic.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

98% Wolfwalkers (2020) It would be worth watching even if it were just for its beauty, but the story is very interesting.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2020
50% The Witches (2020) Sounds like it should be fun, right? But these hijinks feel stale, without a single memorable chase sequence or CG creation in them worth admiring.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2020
86% Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Where Borat was once an outrageous outlier, he's become just another proud bigot wandering the countryside. Or to put it another way: Our culture has finally caught up to Borat. That can't be a good thing.‐ Mashable

40% Rebecca (2020) This Rebecca may not be as beautiful, as brilliant, as charismatic as the one that came before it, but it's the one that's available to us right now.‐ Mashable

90% The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) Chicago 7 is a crowdpleaser first and foremost, and in that regard it succeeds on almost every level... Just don't expect it to be as revolutionary as some of those it calls its heroes.‐ Mashable

43% The Lie (2020) There's a germ of an interesting idea in here about privilege that is only glancingly touched upon... But it gets buried under preposterous twists.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

74% Black Box (2020) Mamoudou Athie especially does a really good job with what turns out to be a really challenging role. He's what makes it interesting for me.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2020
99% Totally Under Control (2020) Absolutely enraging -- in a good way, or at least in an effective way for the purposes of a documentary. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2020
45% A Rainy Day in New York (2020) The execution is so "blah" to me. It just feels like Woody going through the motions.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2020
81% Charm City Kings (2020) A really engaging story worth watching for the performances.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

100% Song Lang (2018) It's a great movie to watch for any reason, but I think especially as showcase for three rising talents.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

85% Yellow Rose (2020) It feels like such a quintessentially American tale as well as a story that we haven't seen before.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2020
99% Time (2020) They capture all these intimate little moments that make up an entire life. What that really does is change and further the conversation about mass incarceration in America.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

87% Cuties (Mignonnes) (2020) In both horrific scenes and adorable ones, what remains consistent is Doucouré's honesty. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2020
55% Coastal Elites (2020) Coastal Elites is so busy being mad about Trump that it forgets to be about anything else at all. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2020
97% One Night in Miami (2020) One Night in Miami embraces the fun of its premise, letting its characters tuck into bowls of vanilla ice cream or root around Sam's guitar case for liquor, rib each other about women or crack each other up with a well-timed zinger.‐ Mashable

97% Nomadland (2020) Nomadland is no stump-speech anecdote or soapbox sermon. It's too empathetic for that, too invested in the humanity of Fern and all those around her. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2020
85% The Way I See It (2020) The Way I See It feels like little more than a bit of PR fluff for a bygone leader - and perhaps, by extension, his former VP.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2020
64% The Devil All the Time (2020) There's only so much you can take of an actor loudly cursing at the skies before it tips over from tragic to hilarious, particularly when he's barely convincing as his paper-thin character to begin with.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2020
77% I Am Greta (2020) We're not really learning much about Thunberg we hadn't already gotten from dozens of profiles and interviews before this one... Still, there's value simply in being reminded that there's a human under all those breathless headlines. ‐ Mashable

100% 76 Days (2020) 76 Days quietly brings back the subtleties of day-to-day life that tend to get lost in ostentatious celebrations of frontline heroes, or macro analyses of the pandemic's global effects.‐ Mashable

100% All In: The Fight for Democracy (2020) It's a fun watch, and also timely and useful. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2020
61% Blackbird (2020) It becomes really easy to care about these characters. Sam Neill was a real standout for me as the devoted husband who is trying to keep it together.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2020
94% Alone (2020) Doles out just enough information and just enough plot twists at just the right pace, giving you just what you came for. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2020
100% Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story (2020) A really fascinating look at a corner of the movie industry that isn't really talked about much.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2020
64% The Devil All the Time (2020) The characters are paper-thin, the plot is super predictable, and despite its star-studded cast... only Robert Pattinson seems like he's having any fun.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2020
87% The Nest (2020) It's like a haunted house story without any ghosts... Very moody, very beautiful, and also -- in its own way -- really devastating. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2020
87% Cuties (Mignonnes) (2020) It's really confident, interesting, and has something worthwhile to say about coming of age.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2020
81% I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) 'm Thinking of Ending Things gives us the chance to know ourselves, and each other, a little bit better. If art has a purpose, I think it's whatever Kaufman's doing here.‐ Mashable

74% Mulan (2020) It's a remake of the 1998 film that reaches for bold choices, but feels too timid to ultimately make them worthwhile‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2020
90% The August Virgin (La virgen de agosto) (2020) It's a movie about transformation, but the transformation is subtle, sensitive, and so well-played by Itsaso Arana.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
92% Desert One (2020) It felt a little bit dry to me. Having a lot of perspectives is good, but it means that you have a long series of talking heads... That said, it was worth watching.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
78% The 24th (2020) Solid, but not necessarily more than that. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
72% Cut Throat City (2020) I do think that Shameik Moore does a lot to ground the emotions of this film... It's fun moment-to-moment and it has a strong sense of character, but the overall piece is a little bit messy.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
53% Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020) A reminder that more isn't always more. The focus is so diffuse that you don't get a good sense of what this world looks like. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
100% Coup 53 (2020) A documentary with the crackle of a spy thriller. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
60% Tesla (2020) Someone as brilliant and creative as Tesla surely deserves a biopic that is not afraid to be unconventional or to swing for the fences, but in practice this just did not work for me at all. ‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
70% The One and Only Ivan (2020) It doesn't feel like the film knows what it wants to be, and I think the biggest problem is that it brushes up against some really thorny territory like animal captivity and freedom... And yet it seems to really lack the teeth to go there.‐ FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2020
82% Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) Face the Music is a feather-light wisp of a film, roughly 90 minutes of good times that won't make you think too hard or feel too much - but you might find the cheer it leaves behind lasts quite a bit longer than that.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2020
94% Yes, God, Yes (2020) For those who aren't familiar with that world, Yes, God, Yes welcomes any and all curious viewers with its gentle empathy and a good-natured sense of humor. ‐ Mashable
