movie review

Easily the most intense and terrifying horror film to come out in decades. It won't be for everyone, but it will affect anyone who sees it in some way.

Not the best film in the franchise, but far from the worst. While mostly agreeable, Solo still has its ups and downs.

An engaging portrait of a world-class violinist, who also happens to be a fascinating and kind man who knows how to live.

The Marvel Studios stranglehold continues.

A surprisingly moving film that manages to break free of the potential for overdone melodrama.

A flat and toneless destruction-fest that could have been a lot more with just a tad bit of vision.

A good old-fashioned nail-biting horror movie that is as scary and tense as it is fun.

Underdeveloped characters with questionable motives maneuver a thin plot that's held together with nothing more than a non-stop barrage of nostalgia.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Despite the negativity from certain circles of the fan community, 'The Last Jedi' is by far the most cinematic and accomplished work in the series since 'Empire.'

Thor: Ragnarok
Finally, a superhero film that successfully showcases the outlandish and ridiculous aspects of the genre in the best of possible ways.

Blade Runner 2049
A visually rich sci-fi noir with a great cast and story to boot.

Dolores
An engaging and insightful documentary that sheds much needed light on one of America's greatest heroes.

mother!
Incredibly divisive and drenched in allegory, Aronofsky's newest film begs the question of whether its hyperbolic message is an important telling of centuries-old themes or a stale mixture of everything we have already seen before.

Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World
An enlightening documentary that does its best to scratch the surface of a subject that deserves a much deeper look.

Columbus
A truly beautiful and refreshing film that offers much more than one might think.

Ingrid Goes West
An overall effective critique on the power of perceived identity.

Lady Macbeth
A bleak and difficult film that's held together by the stellar performance of its young star.

Baby Driver
A much better than anticipated way to spend a few hours at the movies.

I, Daniel Blake
Pointless bureaucracy and amazing performances take center stage in this moving film about people who are just trying to get by.

The Lure
A great premise that gets bogged down by a scattered narrative.

The Void
A nearly great exercise in Lovecraftian cosmic horror.

Logan
An amazing send-off to our favorite savage hero

I Am Not Your Negro
A beautiful and poignant film spun entirely from the eloquent words of author James Baldwin

Seasons
A beautiful nature documentary that shines above its predecessors due to its unique narrative structure and breathtaking cinematography

Embrace of the Serpent
The Daily Orca's James Rosario picks his Top 10 Films of 2016.

The Brand New Testament
A very fun and whimsical story whose triumphs far outweigh its shortcomings.

Timothy Leary and Ram Dass
A touching story of friendship and counter-culture that could have benefited from a little more turning on and tuning in.
