The messiest of the three movies and the most narratively fractured, but it should still satisfy those who consider themselves to be fans.

As a snapshot of 20th century history, "Golda" does its job. As something more eloquent and important, the film falls short of its goal.
There is enough here to keep the film from being a car wreck but it is hardly an example of championship caliber filmmaking.

The primary sin is not that "Blue Beetle" stinks the way really bad movies do but that it is deeply mired in mediocrity.
Provided the viewer is broad-minded enough not to be bothered by a nearly constant stream of profanity, "Strays" offers a kennel of off-color laughter.
"The Last Voyage of the Demeter" is a harrowing journey but, for those who appreciate horror, it is well worth taking.
Hopefully, this sequel will sink into the trench from whence it came and nothing else will surface in its wake.
Shines in its sly observances about Asian American cultural idiosyncrasies even though the overarching narrative at times feels derivative and uninspired.
