    We need one fath-based film; taking it in the last round seems appropriate.

    Oscar season means mediocre biopic gets overpraised. And though I think the trailer for Happy Death Day is fairly inspired, I deeply wish the title wasn't so damned stupid. Back to trans...

    Del Toro could very easily backfire on me, methinks.

    Wrinkle could go either way. It could be next year's C.S. Lewis cinematic outgrowth, but it could also tank and disappear like The Dark Tower. Sarah loves those children's books, but I never really...

    I do like that Pizzolatto tried to look at gender in season 2; I suspect that Milch, if he contributed conceptual help, will enable Pizzolatto to actually have greater success if it's not just a...

    So this is a film that succeeds on energy and tension when Leitch is staging the primary fight scene in the stairwell; the physicality of the violence there is clear and Theron doesn't simply get to...

    Not much here formally or cinematically (and some of the music cues are typical of the more maudlin examples of the rom-com form), but it's well crafted and a solid extension of Nanjiani and Gordon's...
