    On the Basis of Sex


    Smart, pronounced & enduring like its legendary subject, ON THE BASIS OF SEX honors Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a concise film that highlights all of her best qualities with a single history making case. Felicity Jones & Armie Hammer are an equally great & lovable on screen pair!

  • Bumblebee



    BUMBLEBEE is better than the other Transformer films. There’s still a lot of cheesiness & too many suspensions of disbelief but the lighter tone, shorter runtime, more clear action from Travis Knight & likability of Hailee Steinfeld in the lead are all pluses. Reminded me of kid friendly live action films from the 90’s. Happy to see this franchise from a perspective of a different filmmaker.

    Thunder Road


    Jim Cummings gives one of the best performances of the year in THUNDER ROAD. I was floored by his commitment to all aspects of production both in front & behind the camera. The film presents the ups and downs of life with such emotional honesty, you’ll either laugh or cry till it hurts.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse


    SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE is thrilling, hysterical, smart, dazzling, empowering & a giant leap forward for the superhero genre. I’m in awe by its progressive attitude, gorgeous animation & creativity. This is the kind of storytelling that deserves to be celebrated. Wow!!
