    There’s something wonderful, albeit borderline shameless, about a movie that gives Billy Crystal a hall pass to indulge his corniest instincts, from his character’s gimmicky hat to his karaoke scenes to his baseball-influenced memories.

    • 63 Richard Roeper
    Ordinary Love gets everything right, but there’s almost nothing in the way of a major plot revelation or insightful flashback explaining certain elements from the past.

    Most problematic of all is the character of fictional FBI Agent Jack Solomon (Jack O’Connell), who is tasked with leading the surveillance and digging up dirt on Seberg and becomes deeply conflicted about his job.

    Ford gives a grounded, quietly powerful performance as a reclusive, regret-filled, self-pitying old-timer who crawls out of a bottle and finds a renewed sense of purpose when he sees the world through Buck’s eyes. If only those eyes weren’t so distractingly incongruous.

    This is a scary movie that loves other scary movies.

    The only thing more insane and contrived than the Big Reveal is the epilogue, which contains not one but two maddeningly bizarre developments that are beyond strange and inconsistent, even for a movie that’s been strange and inconsistent all along.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Richard Roeper
    It’s a knowing and insightful look at how lives can be forever changed and love can be lost or gained in a single moment.
    • 69 Metascore

    Come As You Are has a wonderful way of making even the most obvious situations seem fresh and funny and original.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Richard Roeper
    Despite the invaluable comedic/dramatic gifts of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell, who do their best to inject some life and energy into the proceedings, Downhill is a pale, tame, broad and soft-edged remake of the far superior 2014 Swedish film “Force Majeure.”

    • 75 Richard Roeper
    It’s a Hollywood story of a spectacular rise to the top that was quite apparently a real-life horror story all along.
    • 61 Metascore

    Brie’s performance is open and honest and disturbing and funny and lovely and resonant. The work is so good and so convincing that even when Sarah is spouting the craziest of her mad theories, there’s a small part of us that wonders if Sarah’s truth is the real truth. We certainly believe SHE believes.

    Robbie turns in a much richer and funnier and layered performance as Harley this time around, thanks in large part to the stiletto-sharp screenplay by Christina Hodson.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Richard Roeper
    No blood is shed. No bodies turn up. And yet The Assistant is one seriously chilling monster movie.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Richard Roeper
    Despite a game performance by Lively, The Rhythm Section is a junk pile of missteps, from the convoluted screenplay that hops from locale to locale in Advil-inducing fashion to the overly stylized directing to the self-consciously “cool” oldies pop music selections.

    Over all, Noelle is subpar — but it’s silly, harmless fun. It’s so forgettable it’ll be virtually erased from your memory five minutes after the end credits roll.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Richard Roeper
    Klaus is a weird, meandering tale — but it has a distinctive visual style and a sly sense of humor and features brilliant voice work from the ensemble cast.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 88 Richard Roeper
    The Gentlemen never ceases to surprise and amuse.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Richard Roeper
    As the Gardner family descends into madness, with the purple-pink light seemingly taking possession of the house and the grounds, director Stanley and his creative team come up with original and in some cases quite effectively nauseating touches.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 100 Richard Roeper
    There’s hardly a moment in this film that doesn’t feature at least one great actor in top form.
    • 59 Metascore

    Troop Zero is so sugary you’d get a cavity if you bit into it — but it’s also a cozy, satisfying and inspirational underdog tale, featuring a wonderful performance by Mckenna Grace.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Richard Roeper
    Almost nothing that takes place in the last 20 minutes of this movie could ever transpire in anything resembling the known universe. By then, you’ll have long since either checked out or decided to strap on the popcorn bag, put reality on hold and just go with it.

    We have the first serious contender for Wasted Opportunity of the Decade.

    Underwater breaks no new ground as a sci-fi horror flick — other than as a possible contender for the murkiest movie ever made.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Richard Roeper
    This film is a symphony of recognizable notes.
    • 32 Metascore

    Imagine how great it would be to see a vehicle worthy of the respective likability, comedic chops, intelligence, onscreen charisma and beauty of Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne. No, I mean you’re really going to have to imagine that, because Like a Boss is not that movie.

    • 100 Richard Roeper
    With brilliant, innovative, claustrophobically effective directing choices by Mendes, Oscar-worthy cinematography from the living legend Roger Deakins and strong, raw performances from the two young leads, 1917 is a unique viewing experience you won’t soon shake off.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Richard Roeper
    This is terrific family entertainment.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Richard Roeper
    Uncut Gems is part psychological thriller, part black comedy, part thriller and part dysfunctional extended family drama — and it clicks on all those cylinders.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Richard Roeper
    Through Gerwig’s wonderfully creative prism, it’s as if we’re meeting the March sisters for the very first time, and we’re immediately swept away in a gorgeously filmed, wickedly funny, deeply moving and, yes, empowering story with themes still relevant some 150 years after the time period of these events.

    A Hidden Life is one of the most metaphysical films ever set against the backdrop of World War II.
