Reviews by Jack Holloway:

Turn up the volume and watch this amazing comedy with someone you love. It is a guaranteed good time.
From hippy love to murder, this unsettling Manson thriller features great performances, vivid, biting sequences, and raw detail.
It’s like a good high school movie, like Mean Girls or Risky Business. It’s exactly what it should be: fun, without lacking real depth.
I learned so much in this documentary that I wish it could have been a documentary series, with several episodes I could gobble up.
It’s surprising how relevant this movie feels, even 20 years later. But it’s not just nostalgia or deep themes that keep bringing us back, it’s everything!
We Need to Talk about Kevin confronts us with some dark questions and disturbing realities, and discourages easy answers with its stark portrayal of a mother’s suffering.
A Quiet Place is heart-wrenching, suspenseful, and innovative. Both compelling and thrilling, it’s one of the best horror movies to come along in a long time.
Musers Alana and Jack go head to head in a double review of the high stakes, true story of Molly Bloom – a woman lost in the world of underground poker.
Christine, a.k.a. Lady Bird is at once unique and familiar, charming and incorrigible. Director Gerwig’s wit and promise suggests her best work is ahead of her.
Jenny Slate and Abby Quinn are hilarious as sisters. Their chemistry is perfect. They bicker, joke around, hook up with exes and dance.
Sofia Coppola is a true master. Even the most subtle moments in The Beguiled are totally engrossing.
This movie is extremely bizarre, but the kind of bizarre that is a joy to watch. It’s all sexuality, love potions and seduction.
It’s a 1950s mystery that paints a familiar picture of an alarming relationship dynamic but resolves it in a welcome, unfamiliar way.
This is two straight hours of a girl’s roller-coaster-encounter with some sketchy dudes and their alarming evening plans. And it’s totally worth the ride.
What could be a purely political film about a surveillance state is profoundly personal, capturing the longing of a daughter to know the truth of her father.
Bassem Youssef of Egypt blurs the line between comedian and hero, and at precisely the right time.
Robin Wright, both the character and the actress, is asked to be scanned into a hologram - always perfect, always ready.
