4/5 Vice "Vice approaches a dark period of American history - and a dark horse of a character - in a witty and irreverent way."

4/5 Vox Lux "I was sucked in. It seared my memory, and I'm not done wrestling with it. Like the work of any interesting artist, it demands to be wrestled with. If that's your jam, Vox Lux might be for you too."

2/4 Alita: Battle Angel "There's something both unsettling and absorbing in seeing human faces grafted onto all-hardware bodies, and it's the only instance in which the film feels like it's breaking new ground. Otherwise, there isn't much that warrants attention or excitement."

2/4 Happy Death Day 2U "This is one time when (with apologies to Herman's Hermits and that jolly Henry VIII) the second verse -- multi or otherwise -- is not the same as the first."

C Alita: Battle Angel "I don't feel one bit guilty for not enjoying 'Cyberpunk Rollerball' in 2019."

5/10 Alita: Battle Angel "James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez give the film a great pedigree but Alita and all the other characters fade from thought when the movie fades to black."

B+ Skyscraper "Yes, it's ridiculous. Yes, it's full of impossible nonsense. And Yes, I loved just about every physics defying second of it."

Varda by Agn├Ęs "As Varda's physical strength diminishes, and she gives us an ending that very much feels like a goodbye, she goes out by handing us an index to her case studies in how to spread creativity into the world."

The Aftermath "This slightly stodgy drama is elevated by the presence of Australian actor Clarke, who commands attention a as the weary British Colonel weighed down by years of incessant tragedy."

The Aftermath "Where it might have been an old-fashioned melodrama with credible historical appeal, instead it suggests an old-school celluloid epic whose print has lost a reel or two."

2/5 The Aftermath "The well-intentioned performances lead nowhere."

The Aftermath "Will please a select audience starved for grown-up comfort viewing..."

A- The Social Network "The Social Network is about the establishment of one very popular site, but because of the way it is done, the film is as personal as movies get."

B Let Me In "When you're twelve, whether temporarily or eternally, things are different, and Let Me In depicts this with emotional accuracy and a great deal of empathy."

B- Secretariat "If you want to see a movie about a woman who loves her horse, or who is literally (as opposed to figuratively) risking everything for either a conviction or for any kind of altruistic goal, this isn't it."

B My Soul to Take "My Soul to Take is a little uneven, but at its best, it's remarkably good. "

B Monsters "[Monsters] makes us reflect easily on what we would do in the characters' situations and, as part of the overall feel, it gives us the steady course of two people getting to know one another in very credible fashion."

19/20 Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) "...doesn't let us make easy judgements even when we think some of the behaviour is tragic and terrible. The film is both hopeful and dark, which is just like human nature - inherently contradictory."

B+ Red "Red isn't particularly deep -- yes, the characters know they're older than they once were, but that doesn't seem to stand in their way once they rev up. This does give the movie an extra little current of joy. "

B Hereafter "Hereafter is pleasant, intelligent and consistently watchable, but it is also oddly diffuse."

C+ Due Date "There are a few laugh-out-loud lines, but the situations prompt more curiosity about what will happen and/or how they'll get out of it than actual amusement."
