      Wildflower (2022) Carla Hay Based on a true story, Wildflower has an admirable performance from Kiernan Shipka, but there are too many problems with this uneven dramedy, including awkward subplots that go nowhere and underdeveloped characters that are bad parodies of real people.

      The Quiet Girl (2022) Carla Hay The very accurately titled The Quiet Girl is a mediative drama about how an introverted Irish girl spends a life-changing summer away from her troubled home and learns some poignant lessons about grief and family love.

      What We Do Next (2022) Carla Hay What We Do Next is a superbly acted and well-written drama that tackles issues of race, gender, and social class in American politics and the U.S. criminal justice system. Michelle Veintimilla, Karen Pittman, and Corey Stoll give compelling performances.

      Inside (2023) Carla Hay Inside would've been better as a short film. However, Willem Dafoe gives an acting performance worth watching for people who don't have short attention spans. Don't expect much action in this drama. This movie is a psychological portrait of confinement.

      Huesera: The Bone Woman (2022) Carla Hay Huesera: The Bone Woman delivers plenty of creepy images and convincing acting performances. Just don't expect a clear and complete explanation for all of the disturbing incidents in this effective horror movie.
      Posted Mar 17, 2023
      The Box (2021) Carla Hay It's a solid and well-acted drama that can hold viewers' interest, even when the movie drags on for a little too long, and a family secret is too easy to predict before it's revealed.
      Posted Mar 16, 2023
      Shonibar Bikel (Saturday Afternoon) (2019) Carla Hay Shonibar Bikel is more exploitative than informative. It takes the story of a real-life massacre and uses it as an excuse to show vile murders, without regard to presenting the victims as fully formed people. The movie's terrible ending has no epilogue.
      Posted Mar 15, 2023
      Shazam! Fury of the Gods (2023) Carla Hay Shazam! Fury of the Gods loses much of the charm of 2019's Shazam!, by overloading on bad jokes, cluttered storylines, and formulaic action scenes. It's a failed attempt to be a wisecracking, high-quality superhero movie.
      Posted Mar 15, 2023
      Sound of Silence (2023) Carla Hay The horror movie Sound of Silence over-relies on annoying sound effects as a distraction from the very limp and predictable story. Note to filmmakers: Repeating loud noises doesn’t automatically make a horror movie scary.
      Posted Mar 14, 2023
      Swallowed (2022) Carla Hay Swallowed starts off as an intriguing but somewhat far-fetched horror film. However, when Mark Patton and his terrible acting show up, the movie turns into a campy, boring, and repetitive mess. The movie's ending is also very weak and unimaginative.
      Posted Mar 13, 2023
      All Quiet on the Western Front (2022) Carla Hay Told from a German perspective, this version of All Quiet on the Western Front is the most brutal and harrowing in showing the horrors of World War I. The movie has well-crafted technical assets, but the personalities of the characters are underdeveloped.
      Posted Mar 12, 2023
      My Happy Ending (2023) Carla Hay The only happy ending that viewers might get from watching this poorly made and fake-looking cancer comedy/drama is when this boring train wreck is finally over. Tamsin Greig gives the movie's only adequate performance. Everyone else's acting falls flat.
      Posted Mar 11, 2023
      Blue's Big City Adventure (2022) Carla Hay As long as viewers know in advance that children under the age of 10 are the target audience for Blue's Big City Adventure, it's much more enjoyable to watch. It's sweet, sincere, and has some cute musical moments.
      Posted Mar 11, 2023
      Hunt (2022) Carla Hay Hunt sometimes gets too convoluted for its own good, but it offers a mostly engaging mystery for viewers who have the attention span and interest to follow this twist-filled spy thriller that's set in the 1980s.
      Posted Mar 11, 2023
      The Grandmaster of Kung Fu (2019) Carla Hay The Grandmaster of Kung Fu does nothing groundbreaking, but it delivers what it's supposed to deliver: an action-filled, uncomplicated story with interesting characters. Kung fu fans should at least be moderately entertained by this briskly paced movie.
      Posted Mar 11, 2023
      Southern Gospel (2023) Carla Hay Many aspects of Southern Gospel are predictable, but solid performances from most of the cast members help overcome some clichés of faith-based films. This biopic of Dream Church founder Samuel Allen also benefits from having good original songs.
      Posted Mar 10, 2023
      The House of No Man (2023) Carla Hay Some of the characters' shrillness can get irritating and repetitive. However, this drama about a female-dominated family gets better in the last half of the movie. Huỳnh Uyển Ân gives a standout performance as someone who learns lessons about life.
      Posted Mar 10, 2023
      Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (2023) Carla Hay The entire movie is built on the shaky foundation that two lovers wouldn't know each other's undisguised voices over the phone. There's no originality at all in this tiresome romantic comedy. And the 150-minute total running time is just too long.
      Posted Mar 10, 2023
      65 (2023) Carla Hay The sci-fi movie 65 might have had a major studio budget, but it’s a minor and embarrassing footnote in Adam Driver’s career. It’s a hodgepodge of ripoffs of much better films, such as Jurassic Park, A Quiet Place, and The Man Who Fell to Earth.
      Posted Mar 09, 2023
      iMordecai (2022) Carla Hay The disjointed comedy/drama iMordecai is based on a true story, but this dull movie looks more like fragmented segments of a very phony sitcom. Even with the talents of Judd Hirsch and Carol Kane, iMordecai is undone by misguided filmmaking.
      Posted Mar 09, 2023
      Scream VI (2023) Carla Hay Scream VI has further cemented the Scream franchise as an intentionally comedic self-parody, but this entertaining movie doesn’t skimp on the horror thrills. The movie’s best scenes make up for the far-fetched revelations in the last 15 minutes.
      Posted Mar 08, 2023
      Champions (2023) Carla Hay Champions is mostly cringeworthy comedy about a grouchy coach and his basketball players, who aspire to compete in the Special Olympics. This misguided movie is an awkward mixture of sappiness, crudeness, bad jokes, and negative stereotypes.
      Posted Mar 07, 2023
      Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre (2023) Carla Hay This smug and cliché-plagued action flick is proof that Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham have gotten lazy in their movie collaborations. The fights look too fake. The whole film is a failure of imagination, motivated by greed and paid trips to exotic places.
      Posted Mar 06, 2023
      Bunker (2022) Carla Hay An evil creature isn’t the only thing that’s hiding in the World War I horror movie Bunker, because a good story and credible acting are nowhere to be found in this dreadfully dull misfire. The last 15 minutes of the movie are especially awful.
      Posted Mar 06, 2023
      Mixtape Trilogy: Stories of the Power of Music (2022) Carla Hay This occasionally uneven documentary mostly achieves what it intended in its title. The first third of the movie is upbeat but predictable. The second third is boring and forgettable. The last third is the most dynamic and informative section of the film.
      Posted Mar 05, 2023
      There There (2022) Carla Hay There There should have been titled Nothing There, in case people are looking for a movie with a coherent plot or interesting characters. It's one of those tedious independent films that tries to fool people into thinking that its shallow idiocy is cool.
      Posted Mar 04, 2023
      The Wandering Earth II (2023) Carla Hay It's an over-the-top sci-fi spectacle that doesn't lose sight of the human stories in this saga about trying to avert an outer-space disaster. In other words, the movie delivers exactly what viewers can expect from 'The Wandering Earth' franchise.
      Posted Mar 03, 2023
      Jesus Revolution (2023) Carla Hay The problems with Jesus Revolution have nothing do with religion. This 1970s-set biopic drama about Harvest Crusades founder Greg Laurie has too many bad scenes with hokey dialogue and subpar acting. Many of the cast members are not convincing as hippies.
      Posted Mar 02, 2023
      Selfiee (2023) Carla Hay For a comedy that's nearly two-and-a-half hours, Selfiee takes way too long to have nothing interesting to say. Emraan Hashmi puts in a good effort to make his character believable. The other cast members just exist in a dull movie with silly gimmicks.
      Posted Mar 01, 2023
      Mummies (2023) Carla Hay Mummies could have been a wildly imaginative adventure about the contrasts between ancient Egypt and modern London, but this boring animated film has a clunky narrative, unremarkable visuals, and a stale plot.
      Posted Mar 01, 2023
      Project Wolf Hunting (2022) Carla Hay Project Wolf Hunting revels in a lot of gore, but this sci-fi horror movie also has a solid story that's packed with thrilling action. Plot twists and memorable characters make Project Wolf Hunting better than the average bloody horror flick.
      Posted Feb 28, 2023
      The Price We Pay (2022) Carla Hay The Price We Pay is yet another tedious and moronic slasher flick that's a very bad imitation of 1974's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. If you're going to copy a horror classic, at least make it compelling. The Price We Pay fails miserably on every level.
      Posted Feb 27, 2023
      Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023) Carla Hay Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is the very definition of bottom-of-the-barrel horror trash. It's not scary, funny, or interesting in any way. It's just a bloodbath slasher flick that is deeply misogynistic.
      Posted Feb 26, 2023
      The Offering (2022) Carla Hay The Offering is a disappointing and sloppily edited horror movie with some cringeworthy acting. The ending of the movie is very rushed and haphazard. The movie can't maintain enough suspense. Scenarios are poorly explained and get more and more idiotic.
      Posted Feb 26, 2023
      Ping Pong: The Triumph (2023) Carla Hay It's a very formulaic and predictable 'underdog' sports story, but there are enough riveting scenes of table tennis/ping pong competitions to keep viewers interested. These action scenes are well-filmed, even though the screenplay is somewhat bland.
      Posted Feb 26, 2023
      Vaathi (2023) Carla Hay Vaathi tells a very sentimental story that takes a searing look at how the debate over government-funded education versus private education in India affects those who are financially disadvantaged.
      Posted Feb 25, 2023
      Creed III (2023) Carla Hay Creed III serves up more of the franchise’s winning combination of family drama, boxing fights, and friendship loyalty. The movie might disappoint viewers who are expecting more boxing scenes, but Adonis Creed’s complicated past gets a worthy spotlight.
      Posted Feb 24, 2023
      The Pod Generation (2023) Carla Hay The Pod Generation is a futuristic satire about family planning that starts off very promising, but then the movie drags with repetition and fizzles out with an underwhelming ending. The talents of the cast members are squandered in this shallow film.
      Posted Feb 23, 2023
      Cocaine Bear (2023) Carla Hay Just like the bear that’s on a cocaine-fueled rampage, the erratic and unpredictable Cocaine Bear aims to shake up people’s sensibilities. It’s a wild and uneven ride, where the movie’s surreal comedy works well, more often than not.
      Posted Feb 23, 2023
      Shehzada (2023) Carla Hay Shehzada is a pointless and insipid movie remake that did not need to be made. It's filled with stupid dialogue and ludicrous scenarios that relentlessly insult viewers' intelligence. Kartik Aaryan's smiling charisma isn't enough make this film any good.
      Posted Feb 22, 2023
      Of an Age (2022) Carla Hay Of an Age is a compelling character study of love connections and the importance of timing in order for a relationship to grow. Elias Anton and Thom Green give memorable performances, but some viewers might not like how parts of the story remain untold.
      Posted Feb 20, 2023
      Emily (2022) Carla Hay Gorgeously filmed like an Emily Brontë novel come to life, Emily overcomes its occasionally dull moments with very good acting, led by a vibrant performance from Emma Mackey.
      Posted Feb 19, 2023
      Amigos (2023) Carla Hay An action movie about unrelated look-alikes and mistaken identities usually has only two characters with this problem. Amigos has three characters who are unrelated look-alikes, which just makes this muddled story become increasingly doltish.
      Posted Feb 19, 2023
      When You Finish Saving the World (2022) Carla Hay It's a very staged-looking and dull dramedy about privileged and entitled people trying to make themselves look socially conscious. The movie's tone starts off as cynical and ends in a sentimental way that looks phony and unearned.
      Posted Feb 18, 2023
      Dada (2023) Carla Hay The long-winded and sappy drama Dada is supposed to be about a single father being the only caretaker for his son for the first four years of the son's life. But the movie spends too much time showing his job problems and not enough father-son bonding.
      Posted Feb 17, 2023
      Vaalvi (2023) Carla Hay The comedic thriller Vaalvi starts off with an intriguing concept about a murder conspiracy. However, it's ruined by the film's idiotic second half that relies too much on gimmick gags and unfunny jokes about driving around with a corpse in plain view.
      Posted Feb 17, 2023
      Next Exit (2022) Carla Hay Next Exit is a road trip movie that can be as erratic and irritating as the would-be couple at the center of the story. The movie would've been better with a less predictable ending, but there are enough compelling moments to make this dramedy watchable.
      Posted Feb 16, 2023
      Hannah Ha Ha (2022) Carla Hay Hannah Ha Ha is a well-acted drama that shows how a working-class young woman's view of her life is very different from how her ambitious older brother sees it. The low-key style of this film won't appeal to the masses, but it works for this movie.
      Posted Feb 16, 2023
      Marlowe (2022) Carla Hay Marlowe is going for a classic film noir vibe, but the results are flat and listless. The movie's story is poorly constructed and badly edited. If you want to see cast members act like wooden robots or over-emote in the worst ways, then watch Marlowe.
      Posted Feb 15, 2023
      Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania (2023) Carla Hay It's a quantum mess. It’s bad enough that it recycles tired clichés of Marvel movies. This uneven superhero movie also rips off 1977’s Star Wars in many ways. Jonathan Majors’ standout performance can’t save this substandard spectacle.
