Polaroid [2019] ★

This stinker of a horror movie is one of the worst things you’ll see this year. Following in the footsteps of two of the worst horror films of the decade (that would be “Flatliners” and “Slender Man”, just in case), “Polaroid” focuses on a high school loner who […]

Joker [2019] ★★★½

At first glance, the man who made such movies as “Old School”, “The Hangover” and “Due Date” seems like an unlikely candidate to direct a standalone film about the caped crusader’s greatest nemesis. But Todd Phillips isn’t messing around here. Fierce, deeply disturbing and gut-wrenching at times, “Joker” […]

Yesterday [2019] ★★★

I don’t know how I missed out on this gem of a movie upon its release, but now that I’ve seen it, I cannot but recommend it, especially if you’re a fan of The Beatles. “Yesterday”, written by Richard Curtis and directed with a keen eye for detail […]

Hustlers [2019] ★★★

Believe the hype: Jennifer Lopez is sensational in “Hustlers”, playing the leader of a former strip club employees who got their revenge on their Wall Street clients following the crash of 2008. How and why? You’ll have to see for yourself. But I will say that I walked […]

Rambo: Last Blood [2019] ★½

Face it: John Rambo was one of the most iconic action heroes of the 20th century. The first three movies were released back in the 1980’s and inspired a generation of action filmmakers. Naturally, Sylvester Stallone would want to give his character a fitting farewell. His 2008 comeback […]

Ad Astra [2019] ★★★½

This is the science-fiction movie we’ve all been waiting for this year. “Ad Astra”, written and directed by James Gray and starring Brad Pitt in one of the best performances of his career, is a knockout from start to finish. Last year, Damien Chazelle’s underappreciated “First Man” celebrated […]

Tall Girl [2019] ★½

Much like many Netflix movies of the same genre, “Tall Girl” has a one-joke premise that reaches its full potential after 5 minutes. You may have guessed by now that Ava Michelle plays a high school girl who gets constantly bullied for being…well…tall. It’s not a good premise […]
