“The Commuter”

This has been a lackluster season for taking the train to a thrilling mystery destination.

“The Post”

Whoever said the Pentagon Papers scandal during the Vietnam war would make a terrific thriller.

“Insidious: The Last Key”

There’s no place like home for super psychic Lin Shaye to find the place literally crawling with evil spirits.

“Molly’s Game”

Why would a privileged young woman from an accomplished family become america’s notorious poker princess?

“Father Figures”

Owen Wilson and Ed Helms are perfectly capable of carrying a comedy load, but only when they’ve got amusing material to work with.

“Darkest Hour”

If you’re a student of history, it’s essential you see “Darkest Hour” if for no reason other than Gary Oldman’s amazing transformation.

“All the Money in the World”

“All the Money in the World” is worth far more than the notoriety of Kevin Spacey being replaced after the film had been completed.

“The Shape of Water”

Can a lonely woman whose unable to speak fall madly in love with the “Creature From The Black Lagoon”?

“Downsizing”

Would it surprise you to know that “Downsizing” isn’t quite the cute, comedy satire it’s cracked up to be?

“The Greatest Showman”

“The Greatest Showman” puts on a dazzling show that even captivates audiences who’ve never seen lavish production numbers in the movies.

“Novitiate”

“Novitiate” is a serious, thoughtful movie for serious and thoughtful moviegoers.

“Just Getting Started”

“Just Getting Started” should have been called “stumbling on its last legs.”

“Lady Bird”

I had a feeling movie lovers, at least those with taste, would get behind “Lady Bird”.

“Marshall”

“Marshall” is an intriguing study of a man who knew early on that he was laying the groundwork for civil rights achievements.

“The Man Who Invented Christmas”

“The Man Who Invented Christmas” is a joyous occasion any time of the year, especially now to help celebrate the season.

“Roman J. Israel, Esq.”

I’ve never seen Denzel Washington give a more intense performance than he delivers in “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”

“Wonder”

On the surface, the new family film, “Wonder” gives the impression, it’s just another tearjerker about a child overcoming his disability.

“Goodbye Christopher Robin”

“Goodbye Christopher Robin” tells the story of how children eventually come of age and see the world much differently.
