A nicely twisty thriller replete with Hitchcockian elements that is spoiled by the string of thriller clichés resulting in a lackluster ending.

Run Time: 2:20
U.S. Release Date: 2018-10-12
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller/Comedy
Director: Drew Goddard
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Chris Hemsworth, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman

Has problems beyond its inability to stick the ending but that’s the one that ultimately sinks it.

Strikes an effective balance between satire and homage and mines the most common ore of the old-time Westerns.

Despite featuring strong performances and containing some individually potent scenes, the film’s style keeps the viewer at arm’s length.

Run Time: 1:49
U.S. Release Date: 2018-04-11
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Brad Anderson
Cast: Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris, Shea Whigham, Mark Pellegrino, Jonny Coyne, Leila Bekhti, Idir Chender, Hicham Ouraqa

An imperfect thriller but one that expects the audience to pay attention and that doesn’t pander to the least common denominator.

Run Time: 1:43
U.S. Release Date: 2018-12-07
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Drugs)
Genre: Drama
Director: Peter Hedges
Cast: Julia Roberts, Lucas Hedges Courtney B. Vance, Kathryn Newton, Rachel Bay Jones

By adding cumbersome elements to the narrative, it ultimately detracts from the core human story.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2018-06-08
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Dan Mirvish
Cast: Jim Rash, David Koechner, Mae Whitman, Sasha Alexander, Nancy Travis, Bellamy Young, Richard Kind

An old-fashioned character piece, more dramatic than comedic in tone but leavened with occasional humor.

It sloughs off the generic label that adheres to many films of the genre, providing an experience that is by turns exciting, emotional, and funny.

An opportunity to re-examine ‘70s attitudes through the lens of ‘10s perceptions, "BlacKkKlansman" is equally entertaining and disturbing.

Run Time: 1:35
U.S. Release Date: 2018-07-27
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Carlos Lopez Estrada
Cast: Daveed Diggs, Rafael Casal, Janina Gavankar, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Ethan Embry, Tisha Campbell-Martin

A compelling film with much to say about subjects like gentrification and race – things it approaches with a mix of wit and seriousness.
