Film review: 'Roma'

Telling a small-scale story with the expansive sweep of an epic, Alfonso Cuarón's semi-autobiographical film charts a year in the lives of a middle-class family, told through the eyes of the live-in maid and nanny.

Film review: 'Ralph Breaks the Internet'

The sequel to Disney's smash hit "Wreck-It Ralph" is a simple, heartfelt story about remaining true to oneself, and what happens when the video arcade where its characters reside finally gets a wifi router.

Film review: 'Robin Hood'

The newest version of the classic tale never truly makes a convincing case for its existence, but well, here it is anyway.

Review: 'Wildlife'

On a certain level, the story "Wildlife" tells is not an unfamiliar one, but it's a tender and quietly powerful character study filled with understated emotion and incisive empathy.

Review: 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

The film boasts a wonderful lead performance from Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, but its clichéd narrative and sloppy, safe storytelling let down the larger-than-life figure at its center.

Film review: 'The Happy Prince'

Chronicling the tragic last years in the life of Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde, the melancholy biopic is poignant in its depiction of a gay life cut down by the whims of "polite society."

Film review: 'First Man'

Directed with immaculate detail, “First Man” is a stirring tribute to the individuals who dreamed of reaching the stars and succeeded, as well as the sheer force of will and determination it took for them to achieve the seemingly impossible.
