C+ or below: Thumbs Down
Deeply disturbing and at times excruciatingly painful to watch, this brutal revenge film is a nuanced, unflinching shock to the system.
Despite an interesting sci-fi premise, this action-thriller just can't establish a strong enough connection.
Despite the obvious star power, this one is a complete, implausible bore.
The infectious and inspiring story behind the beloved musical, "Fiddler on the Roof" is now in select theaters.
The new independent film "The Peanut Butter Falcon" wants to be a stylish, road-trip adventure, but it goes nowhere fast.
"Angel Has Fallen" is the third chapter in the saga of Mike Banning, and here's hoping it's the last.
Hugo Weaving's niece, Samara Weaving is fun to watch, but "Ready or Not" finds itself caught between horror and comedy...and it comes up short in both areas.
The iconic music legend David Crosby - of Crosby, Stills & Nash (and Young) - is the subject of this compelling, reflective documentary...but his actions speak louder than his words.
Director Richard Linklater has been on quite a roll with a string of fantastic films, but even the greats deserve a mulligan.
Tough questions are raised, if not addressed, in this quiet yet smoldering drama.
