The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) Movie Still

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) Review By Rich Cline Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha) is on his way to becoming the new Woody Allen, which is a compliment. This film features an eclectic ensemble of A-listers coming together to play a hilariously neurotic Jewish New York family. The film is episodic and very entertaining as … Read more

The Snowman Movie Still

The Snowman Review By Rich Cline With a cast and crew packed with A-list talent, this film seems like it should be a first-rate thriller. But a deeply compromised screenplay lets it down badly, leaving the actors floundering as people who make little logical sense. Meanwhile, the mystery develops in directions that aren’t remotely interesting, … Read more

Thor: Ragnarok Movie Still

Thor: Ragnarok Review By Rich Cline The most riotously enjoyable Marvel movie yet, this action epic benefits hugely from the decision to let wacky New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi loose with the characters. In many ways, this film has the same comical sensibilities as his classics What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for … Read more

Blade Runner 2049 Movie Still

Blade Runner 2049 Review By Rich Cline It’s been 35 years since Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic, which was set in 2019. This sequel is once again a visual spectacle that mixes super-cool images with a jaggedly engaging noir-style mystery that grapples with issues of memory and identity. It’s a staggeringly beautiful epic, as director … Read more

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Movie Still

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review By Rich Cline After the thunderous reception for J.J. Abrams’ Episode VII: The Force Awakens two years ago, writer-director Rian Johnson had a lot to live up to with Episode VIII. And he delivers more than anyone expected: a lucid, entertaining film that operates on four distinct planes, deepens … Read more
