42% Fatman (2020) The assassin's name is Jonathan Miller, and he's played by the great Walton Goggins, who is as always a treat to watch.‐ Reason Online

49% The Witches (2020) Why has Hathaway been allowed to affect a braying Zsa-Zsa-Lugosi Hungarian accent that might have been designed to trigger tension headaches in anyone exposed to it?‐ Reason Online

86% Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) One of the most irritating things about rabid Trump haters is the frequency with which they compel mere Trump loathers to reluctantly come to the defense of Donald Trump.‐ Creators Syndicate

100% J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs & The Church of the SubGenius (2020) The Church of the SubGenius was not, in fact, founded by a pipe-smoking salesman from the 1950s. You may have heard that, but you've been misinformed.‐ Reason Online

91% Love and Monsters (2020) You don't have to be a 12-year-old to appreciate the craft with which this picture is made. But it maybe wouldn't hurt to have a 12-year-old standing by.‐ Reason Online

93% Possessor: Uncut (2020) A world-class body horror movie that has no idea when enough is enough, and no interest in finding out.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2020
43% LX 2048 (2020) A sci-fi movie with more ideas banging around in it than there is really enough room to deal with. ‐ Creators Syndicate

20% No Escape (Follow Me) (2020) It has the hunched and gasping air of an old-school torture-porn movie. But there's no torture! Or rather, there is torture, but you mostly don't see it. It's torture lite.‐ Reason Online

87% The Nest (2020) Jude Law gives one of the strongest performances of his career, playing a man whose life has evolved into a shaky edifice of lies, too many of which he has come to believe himself.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2020
83% Skin: A History of Nudity in the Movies (2020) Looking back on the cinematic sexy-wars of the last century from the promised land of total pornography we inhabit today must be a little puzzling for young cinephiles. ‐ Reason Online

81% I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) A brilliant film, I guess.‐ Creators Syndicate
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2020
96% Class Action Park (2020) The park offered the liberation of extreme, largely unchaperoned thrills to a generation of bored latchkey kids. Unfortunately, some of them left the place in body bags.‐ Reason Online

100% Jazz on a Summer's Day (2020) The pleasures of this great concert documentary-filmed at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival and now re-released in a rich 4K restoration-seem more abundant than ever, and its few problems a little bit less problematic.‐ Reason Online

96% Creem: America's Only Rock 'N' Roll Magazine (2020) And then there was Lou Reed, with whom Lester Bangs had some hilariously hostile interactions. "Lou Reed and Lester brought out the legend in each other," says Cameron Crowe, who made Lester a character in his 2000 movie Almost Famous.‐ Reason Online

73% An American Pickle (2020) Funny, in a gentle way, but also has earnest things to say about family and forgiveness. It's touching but not gloopy. ‐ Creators Syndicate

97% The Go-Go's (2020) Let us now praise the Go-Go's, glittering jewels of the New Wave moment.‐ Reason Online

Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2020
81% The Old Guard (2020) Like Atomic Blonde, this film is adapted from a graphic novel. Also like Atomic Blonde, the film version doesn't quite work.‐ Reason Online

71% Archive (2020) The movie's elegant execution makes the old mysteries feel fresh again.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2020
92% The Outpost (2020) An instant classic. A shame it can't be shown on a big screen at the moment, but it can still reach out and excite you on a smaller one.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020
40% You Should Have Left (2020) Given the movie's source-a twisty horror novella by Daniel Kehlmann-it could have been more than just a riff on The Shining. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2020
94% Babyteeth (2020) A cancer-kid movie that rises high above its weepy tradition. ‐ Reason Online

88% Shirley (2020) The picture isn't without interest, but it's artsy and jumbled, and it feels interminable.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2020
92% The Vast of Night (2020) Restores the thrill of amazement people once felt at the thought of flying saucers and alien encounters, refreshing one of the most beloved film genres.‐ Creators Syndicate

87% The Trip to Greece (2020) Not a moment too soon, maybe a bit too late...‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted May 22, 2020
41% Capone (2020) Yes, somebody looked at this script, by director Josh Trank - who was languishing in director's jail in the wake of his intensely disliked "Fantastic Four" reboot of 2015 - and said, "Let's shoot this sucker!"‐ Creators Syndicate
Read More | Posted May 18, 2020

Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2020
86% Sea Fever (2020) A bold appropriation of elements from fright classics like "Alien" and "The Thing" in order to create something stylishly semi-new in the claustrophobic-horror line.‐ Creators Syndicate
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2020
85% Big Time Adolescence (2020) The picture won't change the world, but it could change an otherwise joyless day for the better. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2020
57% The Hunt (2020) Sometimes funny, but no way as witty as it needed to be. The most enjoyable thing about the movie is the wild blood-and-gutsy violence, quite a bit of which is pretty excellent.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2020
91% The Invisible Man (2020) A new Invisible Man now moves among us, and he's much, much scarier.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2020
87% Emma. (2020) A movie so deliciously detailed you want to step inside of it and wander around, marveling at the bonnets and capes, the candle-lit banquet tables , the vast country manor with its cavernous rooms and sweeping greensward. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
78% Buffaloed (2020) The picture crackles along on the trademark energy of its star, Zoey Deutch, and you keep wanting it to work even after it starts letting you down.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2020
92% The Assistant (2020) Deals with the subject of sexual harassment in whispers and sighs, and the result is chilling.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2020
78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) As the opening installment of a projected franchise, it's pretty promising...‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2020
29% The Rhythm Section (2020) Starts out strong, as you'd expect of a movie produced by the tenders of the James Bond franchise, but steadily loses interest on its way to a piddling conclusion.‐ Reason Online

86% Color Out of Space (2020) The family seems like a normal bunch-or as normal as any bunch might be with Nic Cage at its helm. ‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2020
47% Underwater (2020) The movie is an unabashed embrace of a much better film, but it's not too bad itself.‐ Reason Online

20% Cats (2019) I so wanted to slam this movie, but then...‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2019
69% Bombshell (2019) Might have been a better movie if it were a full-on Megyn Kelly biopic-with her ambiguous relationship to Ailes, she's a richly complex character.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2019
92% Uncut Gems (2019) A vivid simulation of what it might be like to live inside a pinball machine, giving Adam Sandler his showiest role, which he embraces obvious appreciation.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2019
94% Marriage Story (2019) Driver and Johansson have likely never been better and are sometimes electrifying.‐ Reason Online

97% Knives Out (2019) Despite the story's many incidental pleasures, it never really takes off.‐ Reason Online
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2019
95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) He knew that children grapple with some of the same issues adults do-death, sorrow, insecurity-but are less prepared to deal with them. That was where Mister Rogers came in.‐ Reason Online
