Critic Spotlight

Latest Reviews



A rancidly unfunny yet pointlessly complex comedy with Ed Gein-level humor, rampant misogyny and homophobia, and a cast of 34-year-old college kids.

Daniel Barnes, Dare Daniel

The Oath

The toothless satire might be less noticeable if the comedy wasn't so similarly gummy, but most of The Oath is rambling and uninspired, mostly amounting to one-note stereotypes shouting at each other.

Daniel Barnes, Sacramento News & Review

The House with a Clock in Its Walls

It's all a bit too mundane to be as magical as it aspires to be. For all of its potential, The House with a Clock in Its Walls seems like a major missed opportunity.

Matt Hudson, What I Watched Tonight


L'eau froide (Cold Water)

Criterion has sensitively restored Cold Water, allowing Americans to finally savor the film's simultaneously dreamy and docudramatic vitality.

Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

Ant-Man and the Wasp

One of the finest, most distinctive Marvel productions yet gets an expectedly sterling home-video release.

Jake Cole, Slant Magazine

Ant-Man and the Wasp

With Ant-Man and the Wasp, Peyton Reed gives us a sequel that delivers everything you would want from a follow-up to the original, including plenty of exciting action sequences, stunning visual effects, and a marvelous cast to bring it all to life.

Jeff Beck, The Blu Spot
