Daily Orca

A compelling documentary that falls just short of greatness due to a few missed opportunities.

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.'

Murder on the Orient Express
A flawed but ultimately enjoyable old-school murder mystery.

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

A touching and endearing send-off to a great actor and a great man.

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

A decent horror entry that does its best to cram a lot of source material into a mere two hours.

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.

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

A spectacular war film that sets itself apart from its contemporaries.

I Called Him Morgan
A beautiful and gripping documentary about a talent whose life was cut short.

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

Get Out
A very fun, and satirical, addition to the horror genre that is almost as good as the hype

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

Embrace of the Serpent
