    The Black Phone

    "What distinguishes The Black Phone from its contemporary genre peers, and what situates it as an engaging work of popcorn horror, is that Derrickson seems to actually want his movie to be fun. Now, 'fun' might not be the logical descriptor for a movie about a child-killer to aim for, but arriving after roughly a decade’s worth of self-serious horror movies about trauma and family and fill-in-the-blank metaphors, a back-to-basics horror-thriller with a sly visual hook and solid performances is a welcome respite." ✏️Molly Adams

    The Man From Toronto

    "Being the second Hart film from Sony to be sold to offer to Netflix ... it’s fair to wonder if the Hollywood studio has some personal vendetta against the comedian, who is frankly churning out better, if not exactly impressive, product than what is currently clogging movie screens."✏️ Steven Warner

    "The issue is not that these performers aren’t talented — it’s that Apatow has utterly failed to provide them with any actual material or character to enact. Instead, he’s reverted to his usual Line-o-Rama improv shtick, which has left him with an incredible clutch of scenes in which nothing happens and no narrative is advanced. It’s just a collection of riffs, very few of which merit more than twenty or thirty seconds, much less a movie of over two hours. It’s an uninspired SNL sketch stretched out to feature length; barely a movie." ✏️ Matt Lynch

    "This is genre filmmaking built on the spare parts of other, better movies, and there’s nothing exciting happening around the margins to mark this as anything other than a dour, self-serious slog. Like so many movies being dumped onto streamers these days, Mother/Android looks and functions more like prestige TV." ✏️ Daniel Gorman
