82% Phoenix, Oregon (2020) A soothing but amusing misadventure, this is a nice little dramedy that really hit the spot for me.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

9% Artemis Fowl (2020) The film and Fowl himself lacked a strong identity.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

65% The Lovebirds (2020) Even if you can sort of guess where things are going much of the time, it is still fun to watch them get there.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

34% Seberg (2020) Overall, though, this film is little more than a vehicle for Stewart to look gorgeously distraught (which she does well) against an intriguing background story that leaves you wanting to know more.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

79% Judy & Punch (2020) A beautifully realized, hauntingly dark fairy tale, there is also a perversely comic thread running through.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

60% Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics (2020) It's worth watching, but Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics ends up being only half-baked.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

79% How to Build a Girl (2020) It did not come across as a tender look back at a youthful time; it just came across as naive - not a naive character but a naive film.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

68% Extraction (2020) All told, Extraction is a reasonably entertaining, extreme action flick, although you can tell it is more cheaply made than a big-screen movie.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

75% The Gentlemen (2020) It's short, it's funny, Hugh Grant is in it and I thoroughly enjoyed it.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2020
89% Blinded by the Light (2019) Occasionally blinded by its own big heart but is still sweet and affecting.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2020
97% Knives Out (2019) With a perfectly calibrated tone that goes over the top and enjoys every minute, this witty, twisty comedy was vibrant yet macabre and, most importantly, totally engrossing.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2020
88% Onward (2020) Absurdly moving.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2020
87% Emma. (2020) Emma is a faithful adaptation with sharp teeth and, above all, it is absolutely hilarious.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

96% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) So, you can weep gentle tears as you, exhorted by Hanks, think of the ones you love and of Hanks himself. Since we are all sitting tight in our own neighborhoods right now, this is a beautiful way to spend a day. ‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

91% Wild Nights with Emily (2019) This Dickinson is savvy, joyful, loving and, perhaps most surprisingly, portrayed to perfection by Shannon.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2020
72% The Aeronauts (2019) A movie about the origins of meteorology might sound too niche, but the adventure of two interesting and compassionate friends high in the clouds is universally fascinating, truly suspenseful and visually stunning.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2020
94% Honey Boy (2019) LaBeouf showed amazing restraint in letting someone else direct it, and the result is an interesting looking, but sometimes hard to watch, coming-of-age tale.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2020
99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) It is bracing, audacious, jarring, challenging and exciting, a devastating social satire realized with precision and intelligence in every perfectly constructed frame.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2020
82% The Report (2019) A gripping procedural drama that is also a love letter to paperwork.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2020
82% Judy (2019) As a biopic, it is not extraordinary and it verges on cheesy more than once, but watch it to see what all the fuss over Zellweger is about.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2020
95% Marriage Story (2019) It was great; it was interesting, funny and emotional, but it didn't demand to be seen.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2020
94% Little Women (2019) With a few wonderfully clever touches, this beautiful film honors not just the story itself, but the act of reading and loving it.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2020
24% The Goldfinch (2019) If you are one of the many people who read the novel by Donna Tartt, however, this maligned, handsome film is more than worth watching.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2019
49% Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) The film's ending is satisfying and meaningful, but to keep some of the other characters intact would not have made Bernadette just look better, it would have made the film look better.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
23% The Kitchen (2019) This story about three mob wives taking the reins after their husbands are imprisoned is uneven, at best.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
96% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) You have to be made out of stone to be unmoved by The Peanut Butter Falcon.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
94% Klaus (2019) An absolutely beautiful hand-drawn cartoon about Santa's origins.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
81% Let It Snow (2019) I love Shipka and it has Prince Ben (Mitchell Hope) from Descendants in it, which you will find exciting if you are, as I mentioned, a teen or tween.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
53% Noelle (2019) This entry is the most colorful and traditionally jolly of the newcomers and as such, pretty silly.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
98% The Farewell (2019) An extraordinarily gentle drama that is thought-provoking in the nicest, most pleasant way.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2019
82% High Life (2019) It's very disturbing, but utterly compelling.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2019
97% Booksmart (2019) "Booksmart" is a genuinely moving story as well. ‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2019
63% Yesterday (2019) The vibe of Danny Boyle's Yesterday is so delightful and infectious that, for most of the film, all the troubles with the plot seem so far away.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2019
81% Long Shot (2019) It's not a new Valentine's Day classic perhaps, but there are enough warm, fuzzy feelings, along with many laughs, to qualify for date night.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2019
88% Ladies in Black (2018) Ladies in Black fits the bill, beautifully.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
56% The Beach Bum (2019) The Beach Bum is a rambling journey without a destination that is worth taking.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2019
55% The Dead Don't Die (2019) As a satirical statement on consumerism, the film never earns its political jabs either.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2019
80% Late Night (2019) With her sharp suits and even sharper tongue, Thompson's character is a far cry from her many dignified roles in tasteful period pieces, and it's thrilling to see a woman character like this.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019
62% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) The costumes are utterly sumptuous and the period details are convincing, but to really see and understand the emotions governing those who govern others is what makes this film so remarkable.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2019
72% All Is True (2019) While the themes might be hammered home too much at times, they are still compelling and interesting, and hammered home by some incredible actors, decked out in gorgeous costumes and more wigs than an episode of RuPaul's Drag Race.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2019
89% Missing Link (2019) If you have been spoiled by the richness of their earlier films, Missing Link is a bit disappointing, but if you want a beautifully crafted, intelligent adventure for kids, this is still that. It will be interesting to see where Laika goes from here.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)

71% Teen Spirit (2019) There is more to it than meets the eye.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2019
20% Serenity (2019) Bad in a special way.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2019
66% Wine Country (2019) A disappointment like this from so much potential is more than just lame, it's a crying shame.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2019
58% Under the Silver Lake (2019) This is a long, weird movie, startlingly explicit at times, but oddly, and I do mean oddly, affecting.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2019
97% Toy Story 4 (2019) I call this movie unnecessary because the first three films told such a complete story, and this functions more as a "Where are they now?" follow-up. As such, however, it is wonderful.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2019
64% The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2019) It is utterly beautiful, endlessly inventive and borderline unwatchable. There could not be a more poetic union of filmmaker and subject.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2019
76% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2019) Somehow this film straddles realism and absurdity and manages to be emotional.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
93% Stan & Ollie (2019) There is plenty to admire in the sedate but moving biopic.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2019
91% Support the Girls (2018) An unusually subtle story of would-be women's liberation, that could have gone so many other ways, but always lands in reality and pitch-perfect performances.‐ Lagniappe (Mobile, AL)
