Movie Reviews

Dan Webster and Nathan Weinbender give short movie reviews.

  • Adapted from a videogame, “The Last of Us” is a riveting HBO miniseries that explores the meaning of love, Dan Webster says in his review.
  • Another week, another horror sequel. The sixth installment in the “Scream” series is now in theaters, and Nathan Weinbender takes a look at how it stacks up against the other installments of this uneven but sometimes inventive franchise.
  • In directing “Creed III,” filmmaker/star Michael B. Jordan shows that he knows how to handle a movie camera, Dan Webster says in his review.
  • “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” is an intimate look at a survivor’s quest for justice, Dan Webster says in his review.
  • In her new documentary “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed,” director Laura Poitras examines both the life of photographer Nan Goldin and the origins of America’s opioid epidemic. Nathan Weinbender says the disparate threads come together in ways both surprising and deeply moving.
  • Close takes a look at male friendship on the cusp of adulthood and the view is a sad one, Dan Webster says in his review.
  • He may be divisive these days, but there’s no denying M. Night Shyamalan is once again a household name. Nathan Weinbender takes a look at the director’s latest, “Knock at the Cabin,” a simple story told with riveting style.
  • “Knock at the Cabin” is an exercise in horror that offers more questions than it can possibly answer, Dan Webster says in his review.
  • “Argentina, 1985” tells the true story of Argentina’s military leaders being tried for their murderous acts, Dan Webster says in his review.
  • The comedy “You People” was one of the most-watched Netflix original films last month, and that’s likely because of its all-star cast led by Jonah Hill and Eddie Murphy. Unfortunately, Nathan Weinbender says it’s a bad sitcom with serious intentions, and even its hilarious actors can’t save it.
