82% Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score) (2020) This film is such a strange bird I cannot predict what a viewer's reaction might be, but I think it is worth watching and finding out for yourself.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

38% Downhill (2020) It's a bitter little pill, but it worked for me. Proceed with caution and you will be rewarded with an insightful drama.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

40% Rebecca (2020) Like the second Mrs. De Winter, the contemporary viewer could enjoy "Rebecca" if freed from the constraints of comparison to a long-lost past.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

69% The Glorias (2020) The life story of one extraordinary woman - Gloria Steinem - in the hands of another extraordinary woman - director Julie Taymor - gives us the visually stunning and emotionally probing biopic "The Glorias."‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

40% Irresistible (2020) The movie has its funny moments, but the messaging is super overstated and the premise ends up being fairly simplistic.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2020
67% The Burnt Orange Heresy (2020) The Burnt Orange Heresy is a tight, smart mystery built on an unusual premise with great actors who are not overexposed.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

87% Get Duked! (2020) This gloriously idiotic misadventure is the perfect ludicrous comedy romp for the right viewer.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

70% The One and Only Ivan (2020) It has whimsy and heart and is emotional but not depressing.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

72% Cut Throat City (2020) Sometimes the machinery of the plot gets a little hard to believe, but our investment in the characters is always there to keep us going despite the somewhat excessive run time.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2020
85% I Used to Go Here (2020) It rings true in its depiction of the small scale revelations we are sometimes afforded in life, and the characters are sweet and funny, if not always as profound as they might be.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2020
81% The Old Guard (2020) The Old Guard was uneven but exciting, with a premise novel enough to earn a watch.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2020
61% Radioactive (2020) There are lots of different kinds of women, wives and mothers, and "Radioactive" gives the viewer a fascinating portrait of a truly singular person.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

87% The Trip to Greece (2020) Pleasant and diverting, but far from the trip of a lifetime, maybe these two actors are ready for a project with a script and a plot, because they are terrific, but they have started to run out of road.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

92% The Vast of Night (2020) Light on effects, heavy on old-fashioned suspense, this is a clever and satisfying science-fiction debut from director Andrew Patterson.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2020
63% Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) What made this amiable nonsense watchable for me was Lars' partner, Sigrit, played by Rachel McAdams with an unexpected delicacy that makes their pop duo and this film much better than it should be.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2020
82% Phoenix, Oregon (2020) A soothing but amusing misadventure, this is a nice little dramedy that really hit the spot for me.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2020
8% Artemis Fowl (2020) The film and Fowl himself lacked a strong identity.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2020
65% The Lovebirds (2020) Even if you can sort of guess where things are going much of the time, it is still fun to watch them get there.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

35% Seberg (2020) Overall, though, this film is little more than a vehicle for Stewart to look gorgeously distraught (which she does well) against an intriguing background story that leaves you wanting to know more.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2020
77% Judy & Punch (2020) A beautifully realized, hauntingly dark fairy tale, there is also a perversely comic thread running through.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2020
58% Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics (2020) It's worth watching, but Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics ends up being only half-baked.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

79% How to Build a Girl (2020) It did not come across as a tender look back at a youthful time; it just came across as naive - not a naive character but a naive film.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

67% Extraction (2020) All told, Extraction is a reasonably entertaining, extreme action flick, although you can tell it is more cheaply made than a big-screen movie.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

75% The Gentlemen (2020) It's short, it's funny, Hugh Grant is in it and I thoroughly enjoyed it.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2020
89% Blinded by the Light (2019) Occasionally blinded by its own big heart but is still sweet and affecting.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2020
97% Knives Out (2019) With a perfectly calibrated tone that goes over the top and enjoys every minute, this witty, twisty comedy was vibrant yet macabre and, most importantly, totally engrossing.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2020
88% Onward (2020) Absurdly moving.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) So, you can weep gentle tears as you, exhorted by Hanks, think of the ones you love and of Hanks himself. Since we are all sitting tight in our own neighborhoods right now, this is a beautiful way to spend a day. ‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

89% Wild Nights with Emily (2019) This Dickinson is savvy, joyful, loving and, perhaps most surprisingly, portrayed to perfection by Shannon.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2020
72% The Aeronauts (2019) A movie about the origins of meteorology might sound too niche, but the adventure of two interesting and compassionate friends high in the clouds is universally fascinating, truly suspenseful and visually stunning.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

94% Honey Boy (2019) LaBeouf showed amazing restraint in letting someone else direct it, and the result is an interesting looking, but sometimes hard to watch, coming-of-age tale.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2020
99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) It is bracing, audacious, jarring, challenging and exciting, a devastating social satire realized with precision and intelligence in every perfectly constructed frame.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2020
82% The Report (2019) A gripping procedural drama that is also a love letter to paperwork.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2020
82% Judy (2019) As a biopic, it is not extraordinary and it verges on cheesy more than once, but watch it to see what all the fuss over Zellweger is about.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2020
94% Marriage Story (2019) It was great; it was interesting, funny and emotional, but it didn't demand to be seen.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

95% Little Women (2019) With a few wonderfully clever touches, this beautiful film honors not just the story itself, but the act of reading and loving it.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

24% The Goldfinch (2019) If you are one of the many people who read the novel by Donna Tartt, however, this maligned, handsome film is more than worth watching.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2019
49% Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) The film's ending is satisfying and meaningful, but to keep some of the other characters intact would not have made Bernadette just look better, it would have made the film look better.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
24% The Kitchen (2019) This story about three mob wives taking the reins after their husbands are imprisoned is uneven, at best.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
96% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) You have to be made out of stone to be unmoved by The Peanut Butter Falcon.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

94% Klaus (2019) An absolutely beautiful hand-drawn cartoon about Santa's origins.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

81% Let It Snow (2019) I love Shipka and it has Prince Ben (Mitchell Hope) from Descendants in it, which you will find exciting if you are, as I mentioned, a teen or tween.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
54% Noelle (2019) This entry is the most colorful and traditionally jolly of the newcomers and as such, pretty silly.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
