★★★★ ½ There are not many movies that can make you feel the way Soul does. The genius of the film derives from its simplicity: a simple idea and cute story that evolves into a mini field trip of the inner self. Directors Pete Docter and Kemp Powers were able to weave together a technical […]

By David A. Carlson ★★★ Blending intrigue, provocation, and revenge in telling the story of medical school dropout turned coffee barista, Cassie Thomas, Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) writes and directs Promising Young Woman, a film whose dramatic cinematography and distinguishable musical score add intensity to a somewhat lacking script. Yet a mostly credible cast coupled […]

★★★ Gal Gadot reprises her role as the leading female superhero from the DC universe in Wonder Woman 1984. This time, returning director Patty Jenkins also takes on screenwriting duties with Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham, in a story she conceived with Johns.

★★★★ Ashley Avis (Adolescence) takes on the double duty of scripting and directing Disney’s new version of Anna Sewell’s classic horse tale, Black Beauty. But instead of making a period piece, she modernizes the story and manages to do it with style and respect. Jo Green (Mackenzie Foy) has been orphaned and has no choice […]

Despite their differences, both families need to come together to overcome a much larger threat to their mutual existence. The Croods are led by the […]

★★★ ½ Christmas movies tend to be a dime a dozen, with a constant refresh year after year, it is very hard to gauge which ones will stick. Whether or not Happiest Season has the staying power, it packs an emotional punch that is not to be expected from a holiday family comedy. At its […]
