Unforgettable Poster

Unforgettable

Review by Christy Lemire

Born in China

Review by Simon Abrams

The film doesn't offer anything new, and doesn't stop pushing Family until even the cutest animal seems to be lecturing you to listen to your parents.

The Promise Poster

The Promise

Review by Glenn Kenny

The movie is drenched in production value and replete with ravishing shots of sunrises and sunsets, but it's in the scenes of fleeing, of battle, and of horrendous loss that The Promise is at its most effective.

Sand Castle

Slack Bay Poster

Slack Bay

Review by Simon Abrams

The film's charms are substantial, but what makes Slack Bay so original and enticing is also what makes it fairly alienating.

The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

Burn Motherfucker, Burn! Poster

Burn Motherfucker, Burn!

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Spark: A Space Tail Poster

Spark: A Space Tail

Review by Peter Sobczynski

Sandy Wexler Poster

Sandy Wexler

Review by Brian Tallerico

This is Sandler's first actual Netflix performance. It's in a film that still sucks.
