78% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) "A lot of the story's impact quickly evaporates when it's over. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 22, 2018
77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) "You get the irony from the title, but it's also sincere in its wishes for these young soldiers. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 22, 2018
82% Mosaic: Miniseries (TV, 2018) "The series is not the smoothest of fits, but it has enough shiny parts to keep it interesting. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 22, 2018
100% Black Lightning: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Created by Salim and Mara Brock Akil, Black Lightning has its own style, and the superhero bits are almost the least of it. The show is a lot about negotiating between the life you aspire to and the dangers of the world. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 11, 2018
97% The End of the F***ing World: Series 1 (TV, 2018) "The thing that "The End of the F***ing World" smartly does is never let you forget that Jim and Alyssa are like wild animals you think you have tamed, at any moment they might turn on you and bite. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Jan 5, 2018
100% Psych: The Movie "If you liked the series - you had eight years to find out - you'll like the movie. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 28, 2017
97% Broadchurch: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "The magnetic performances of Tennant and Colman keep the series together; the two acclaimed actors are always able to navigate the show's odder moments with interesting takes. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 26, 2017
64% Jean-Claude Van Johnson: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "At six episodes, the series has enough drive to sustain it, especially since it throws in some outlandish gags and a diabolical scheme to take over the world. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 13, 2017
93% Black Mirror: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) "This new season will only add to the acclaim. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 7, 2017
93% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) ""The Crown" succeeds because it gives us this fresh perspective on the world at that time, and in many ways, the events of the royals then are not that far from what's happening today. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 6, 2017
76% Happy!: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "With only two episodes to judge from, the jury is out on "Happy!" My guess, though is that it's an acquired taste and only for certain people. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 5, 2017
94% The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee (2017) "The documentary doesn't overplay the JFK material - there is a whole documentary or two there. It's an important point " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Dec 1, 2017
100% Vikings: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "As usual, Vikings is a bloody good mix of medieval sex and violence, family drama and even a little bit of authentic history. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 27, 2017
84% Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (TV, 2017) "The four-part, mini-series revival of Gilmore Girls on Netflix was sort of perfect combination of bringing the story up-to-date and the right amount of nostalgia. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 27, 2017
92% Logan Lucky (2017) "The film is a breezy, undemanding romp, a nice respite from what's in theaters now. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 27, 2017
71% The Fall: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "Season 3 does a passable job ending the story, but you have to watch the other seasons first. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 20, 2017
49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) "The real attractions are Bresson's dizzying special effects, hosts of bizarre alien creatures and colorful worlds. Too bad the visuals weren't tethered to something more solid. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 20, 2017
40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) "The film aims pretty low and hits there. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 20, 2017
82% Marvel's Runaways: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "The problem is that series seems to take itself a bit too seriously. It could use a side of humor or an over-the-top quality. But these teens are mostly awkward, and while that could be charming, here it isn't. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 20, 2017
94% Stranger Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "It's fun, weird and charming and not taxing. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 17, 2017
88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Godless is the Western you've been waiting for. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 17, 2017
79% Future Man: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "There are some goofy moments in Future Man that are worth it, but two or three episodes at a time is probably best. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 13, 2017
58% Damnation: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "Damnation has enough mystery and action to stick around to find out. If you're looking for something along the lines of Hell on Wheels, the USA series might do. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Nov 6, 2017
16% The Dark Tower (2017) "The movie seems confused by the mash-up of genres and the rather thick mythology King has laid on. Since it lists four screenwriters, it's now clear nobody got a handle on it. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 30, 2017
100% Too Funny To Fail (2017) "Too Funny To Fail amusingly looks at how a series with so much talent crashed and burned almost immediately - even with a lead-in of one of the top-rated Home Improvement. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 21, 2017
79% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" is another lesson that we need to keep being reminded of about climate change. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 20, 2017
80% Personal Shopper (2017) "Stewart is magnetic. The film's premise rests on the audience falling under her sway. It almost seems voyeuristic, but even when the film edges occasionally to silliness, the young actress never loses your attention. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 20, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) "While War pivots around the test of wills of the colonel and Caesar, the movie demonstrates a sense of humor, particularly with Steve Zahn's Bad Ape, who got his name by being admonished so often by humans. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 20, 2017
0% Hit the Road: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Hit the Road is like The Partridge Family in the upside down. While Alexander is still masterful at getting laughs, there is a cynical quality to the series that takes the fun out. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 19, 2017
91% Loudermilk: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The series ... has an appealing likeability to it. Mostly, that is thanks to Livingston who always keeps the character real. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 19, 2017
62% George Michael: Freedom "While the pop singer, as you would expect, doesn't dig too deeply into the more scandalous aspects of his life, the documentary isn't simply self-serving, either. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 19, 2017
58% White Famous: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "After the two episodes available for review, we don't have much of clue as who Floyd is or what the series is really aiming for. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 13, 2017
92% American Gods: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "American Gods can get obtuse at times but rarely is it boring, populated with the bizarre. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 12, 2017
89% Lady Macbeth (2017) "The story of female oppression from William Oldroyd ... walks a careful line as the beauty who had been kept cooped up by her husband begins to show her strength. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 12, 2017
90% Girls Trip (2017) "It's served well by a likable cast. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 12, 2017
92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) "The action is plentiful, though not particularly memorable, and, sigh, a sequel has already been announced. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 12, 2017
100% Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "Eventually things begin to connect and there are enough surprises and offbeat moments that make Dirk Gently worth following. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 11, 2017
40% The Collection: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The Collection doesn't shy away from violence and conspiracy. While often a sumptuous watch, it too often strays into the gaudy. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 9, 2017
24% Valor: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "So Valor quickly becomes about secrets and lies, guilt and bravery, and hot bodies and awful banter. It's not the best mix, and not mixed the best way. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 9, 2017
No Score Yet Chance: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "The series is a slow burner, but the noir mystery and Laurie keep the flames going. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 9, 2017
28% Wisdom of the Crowd: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Wisdom of the Crowd has cleverly tapped into some timely topics to explore in the series, including questions of privacy and ethics in the tech age. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 29, 2017
70% The Gifted: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "Viewers have seen this all before so many times before that The Gift feels just ordinary. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 29, 2017
91% Gerald's Game (2017) "Gerald's Game uses Hitchcockian suspense to create tensions in an age of few restraints. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 27, 2017
96% Narcos: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "It eventually draws you into the family dynamics while ramping up the action. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 25, 2017
64% Law & Order: True Crime: The Menendez Murders (TV, 2017) "If you don't know what happened, then I suggest you watch The Menendez Murders. It's entertaining despite any shortcomings. You may even disagree with the outcome. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 25, 2017
58% The Good Doctor: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Undoubtedly, each week will bring new medical and social challenges for brilliant young doctor, who is nicely played by Highmore, but that doesn't seem enough to make a high-stakes drama like this worth coming back to. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 25, 2017
38% The Brave: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "As a mission-of-the-week show, The Brave is serviceable but doesn't offer anything new. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 25, 2017
68% SEAL Team: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Like the other military drama shows debuting this fall, SEAL Team is meant as a tribute to our fighting men. It's solid, if not going into new territory. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 22, 2017
89% Transparent: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "Transparent succeeds most of the time. The cast - led by Tambor - are terrific as usual. This year there are some rich, funny and moving moments, and the series continues to take chances other shows wouldn't dare. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Sep 20, 2017
98% The Big Sick (2017) "Like Apatow's best, it is filled with quirkiness, pathos, drama - there are stakes involved. And the story like real life - and in this case, it was real life - has its ups and downs. " ‐ Los Angeles Daily News
