‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Review | Divine Disappointment

There isn’t much praise that can be given to Wonder Woman 1984. There will be some diehard fans that look beyond all of the faults in the film and just enjoy Diana Prince doing Wonder Woman things. It’s a very positive film, so it has that going for it, but otherwise this is easily one of the worst films in the DCEU roster.
Fatman

Fatman | Ho-Ho hum

Fatman is a washed-up Santa Claus hunted down by a hitman after slighting a 12-year-old boy, but the movie doesn't live up to its premise.

Mulan | A Beautiful Letdown

Mulan is a visual masterpiece, but sadly there is not enough narrative substance to justify this version’s more serious tone.

Irresistible movie review

Irresistible | Jon Stewart Returns to Political Satire

Irresistible might not live up to people’s expectations, but it’s still a clever and interesting movie in its own right.

First Cow | A Quirky and Thoughtful Capitalist Fable

First Cow is beautiful period drama with elegant symbolism and quietly good acting that is bogged down by awkward plot development and inexplicable pacing. A must-see for fans of Parasite, but less appealing to general audiences.
the hunt

The Hunt | Right Wing v. Left Wing Battle Royale

Despite the controversial premise, The Hunt is far sillier than it is offensive. While too often messy and nonsensical, a satisfying conclusion gives this political satire the leg up it needs to qualify as stupid fun.

Swallow | A Mature Take on Mental Illness That Should Have Been Better

Swallow succeeds in presenting a mature depiction of the subject matter, but fails to fully capitalize on it by cutting corners elsewhere.

Never Rarely Sometimes Always | A Haunting and Intimate Piece of Artistic Realism

Never Rarely Sometimes Always breaks the rules of conventional storytelling in order to give the delicate subject matter the intimate focus it deserves. The result is a fascinating piece of realism.

The Banker Review | A Classy Look at Racial Inequalities

The Banker comes at you in a variety of ways, but the film eases the audience into some difficult racial conversations with levity and wit.
