C- 36% The Sunlit Night (2019) Slate holds her own and shows glimpses at the story of artistic and personal awakening that "The Sunlit Night" could have been. But mostly it's trapped in the dark.‐ Detroit News

B+ 92% The Outpost (2020) "The Outpost" isn't flashy or pretty, but it's told with a true grit that honors the real life soldiers it depicts.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020
B 95% John Lewis: Good Trouble (2020) "Good Trouble" couldn't be more timely. Yet it feels strangely incomplete, and finds Lewis, 80, looking back over his life even as there's still important work being done.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020
D 15% Desperados (2020) A dead end comedy with a sense of humor that feels like it was trucked in from 1998.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020
A- 98% Hamilton (2020) "Hamilton" remains an explosive show, an optimistic revision of history bursting with creative light, and that light can help illuminate the path through our current darkness.‐ Detroit News

B+ 100% Athlete A (2020) There's a lot here, but "Athlete A" handles its material lithely, moving smoothly between Nassar's survivors, the journalists who broke the story and the big picture of gold medals, Summer Games and national pride.‐ Detroit News

C 63% Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) If the movie had bigger laughs, it wouldn't matter. As it stands, "Eurovision" feels like a run through of songs you've heard sung better before.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2020
B 47% My Spy (2020) "My Spy's" got the goods. Pinky promise.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2020
C- 40% Irresistible (2020) "Irresistible," which can't decide if it's a satire, a farce or an old-fashioned come-from-behind underdog story, just isn't it. Resist.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2020
B+ 92% Babyteeth (2020) There are plenty of movies about terminally ill teens but "Babyteeth" dodges clichés and finds the truth and honesty in its characters.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2020
B+ 70% 7500 (2020) "7500" - the title is airline code for a hijacking - peaks at the midway point and dips slightly in its second half, but Vollrath's construct and his control is never not impressive.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2020
C 40% You Should Have Left (2020) "You Should Have Left's" slow-burn never manages to catch fire.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2020
D+ 9% Artemis Fowl (2020) Kenneth Branagh directs and gives the film a crisp look but can't make heads or tails of what's going on; there are Shakespeare monologues easier to digest than this convoluted story.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2020
C 73% The King of Staten Island (2020) Within the scattered narrative, it's Powley's Kelsey who comes out the winner, and the most realized character in the film... She's the queen of this world, it's the movie that's focused on the wrong member of the kingdom.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2020
B+ 92% Da 5 Bloods (2020) "Da 5 Bloods" bleeds American.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2020
C 69% The High Note (2020) It's a bummer. "The High Note" has a chance to tell an original story about the inner-workings of the music business. Instead, it's satisfied playing the greatest hits. ‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 29, 2020
B 74% CRSHD (2019) [A]s a calling card, "CRSHD" shows Cohn as a filmmaker with a keen understanding of youth culture.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 22, 2020
C+ 87% The Trip to Greece (2020) Yet the melancholy of the outside world eventually creeps in and crashes the party like an unwelcome dinner guest, bringing "Greece" to an oddly unsettling finish.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 22, 2020
B 65% The Lovebirds (2020) Without Rae and Nanjiani it wouldn't work as well as it does. Luckily, they're two lovebirds with a song worth singing.‐ Detroit News

A- 96% The Painter and the Thief (2020) It's a knockout.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 22, 2020
B- 90% Up from the Streets: New Orleans: The City of Music (2019) "Up from the Streets" is clearly in love with its subject and wants everyone to feel that love as well. If only it had as much rhythm as the city that inspired it.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2020
C+ 87% Spaceship Earth (2020) [Wolf's] documentary lacks the personality and drama that Biosphere 2 also lacked, and central questions about basic human functions within the project are unmentioned.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2020
C- 41% Capone (2020) It's a trip you'd rather forget.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2020
B- 34% The Wrong Missy (2020) It's far from even "50 First Dates," another island-set Sandler-land rom-com, but in a weird way, "The Wrong Missy" works.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 18, 2020
B 81% How to Build a Girl (2020) Beanie Feldstein's charming performance forms the solid base of "How to Build a Girl," a coming-of-age comedy that follows familiar beats but has a winning disposition.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 12, 2020
B+ 90% The Booksellers (2020) "The Booksellers" looks at where the trade has been, the psychology of why it has survived generations and how it can move forward. It's as warm and inviting as a good book.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 12, 2020
B 93% Becoming (2020) It's a slick look at the former first lady, out of the White House and carving out her life post-politics, but it's as polished and smoothed out as a campaign ad. It's a warm latte, delivered to you in your favorite mug.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 12, 2020
B 92% A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2020) It's blood curdling stuff and it's not for the squeamish, but Bolger grounds it and centers it as the story of a struggling mother protecting her loved ones at any cost.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted May 12, 2020
B 67% Extraction (2020) [F]or pure, overpowering thrills, "Extraction" delivers.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2020
A- 90% The Willoughbys (2020) The Willoughbys, both the movie and the family, sneak up on you in the most welcome of ways.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2020
C 43% Sergio (2020) "Sergio" honors a man whom not everyone knows, but should. Yet its dry telling and skewed emphasis on his love life trivialize a man whose life was much more than skin deep.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2020
C- 88% Selah and the Spades (2020) The tone here isn't fun or playful or tongue-in-cheek, "Selah" takes itself dead seriously, which makes its world even less inviting.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2020
B 86% Sea Fever (2020) The power of "Sea Fever" is that it's not explicitly about the ongoing health crisis, but it deals with themes and philosophical struggles that perfectly align with our present situation. Its timing is perfect, and it's elevated by that timeliness.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2020
B- 70% Trolls World Tour (2020) "Trolls World Tour" is the equivalent of jazz fingers being mercilessly waved in your face: sure it's annoying, but after awhile you can't help but smile.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2020
C 26% The Main Event (2020) "The Main Event" is harmless, sure, but it's also completely disposable. By the final 3-count, it has already disappeared.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2020
B 32% Love Wedding Repeat (2020) The cast makes everything work, especially Claflin, who displays the clumsy charm of early Hugh Grant, and Munn, whose easygoing charisma is a nice fit with Claflin.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2020
B 99% Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) Its strength is in its restraint, and the way that it takes a situation, presents its characters and keeps things very, very real.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2020
B+ 82% The Platform (El Hoyo) (2020) If you can stomach it, "The Platform" is a funny and fierce farce with its eyes on race, class and the ways people can rise up for the betterment of all by working together.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2020
B 100% Slay the Dragon (2020) Gerrymandering is purposely confusing. Even its name is wonky. But the compelling, impassioned documentary "Slay the Dragon" does an effective job of explaining it...‐ Detroit News
