DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

DICKS: THE MUSICAL -  Marius De Vries, Karl Saint Lucy (score); Aaron Jackson, Josh Sharp, Karl Saint Lucy (songs)  

"Believe it or not, the music itself helps. Besides a bit by Megan Thee Stallion that feels overproduced compared to the rest of the movie, the music here kinda rules. It probably helped to have Marius de Vries as the music producer, given his pedigree that includes 'La La Land,' 'Moulin Rouge!,' and 'Romeo + Juliet.' The musical numbers are legitimately well-done -- funny, witty, and sometimes even moving. Jackson and Sharp are at their best when projecting ridiculous lyrics into each other’s faces, and Lane & Mullally are having an absolute blast."
 
Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
 
"The new colleagues’ relationship is frosty at first: 'You have long hair like a girl,' Craig tells Trevor; 'you have short hair like a lesbian girl,' Trevor replies, expertly wielding the rapier wit of a peeved eight-year-old. But eventually, the pair team up to reunite their folks. One potential obstacle is that their father, Harris, is decidedly not heterosexual. Cue the song 'Gay Old Life,' in which Harris details his fabulous queer existence and introduces the aforementioned creatures, his beloved Sewer Boys. (Jackson and Sharp wrote the passable songs with Karl Saint Lucy and Marius de Vries, and their staging is mostly anemic.)"
 
Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New York Times

"The only truly memorable number is a slickly produced bop performed by Megan Thee Stallion, who’s excellent as the boss at the Vroomba parts factory before the movie runs out of use for her, but the rest of the tunes are all credible Broadway riffs that the cast belts out with aplomb; it’s impressive that Jackson and Sharp can hold their own against Lane and Mullally, and their enthusiasm compensates whenever their range falls short. And when enthusiasm alone can no longer keep the ship afloat, sheer audacity rides to the rescue, as 'Dicks' ends with an inevitable but satisfying eruption of bad behavior that feels so good -- one that leaves you wondering just how much funnier and more transgressive this movie could have been had it allowed itself to go that hard from the start."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
"With two dozen other songs penned by Jackson and Sharp, along with composers Marius de Vries and Karl Saint Lucy, musical homage (all those crotch-level lyrics aside) is affectionately paid to the songbooks of Menken & Ashman and 'The Book of Mormon''s Matt Stone, Robert Lopez and Trey Parker."
 
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
THE EXORCIST: BELIEVER - David Wingo, Amman Abbasi
 
"Green inserts flashes of some awful-seeming, more twisted version of possession -- the black-and-white vision that filled advertisements ahead of the movie. But we never see that version of the story come to fruition -- there are only snippets of it, set off by blasts of music. It’s hard to know how these inserts relate to the movie’s plot, but as it stands, they feel like windows into a better, scarier, and more interesting version of the movie, and completely out of step with the version we actually got. The minor hints of demonic activity all build toward an exorcism that’s the worst and most damning part of 'Believer.'"
 
Austen Goslin, Polygon 

"It is at about this point that the familiar strains of Mike Oldfield’s 'Tubular Bells' fade into the soundtrack, as if to tell the audience don’t worry, you don’t have to deal with anything new anymore. 'The Exorcist: Believer' returns Chris MacNeil to the franchise after a 50 year absence, and it turns out that she wrote a book and did some speaking tours, and now knows quite a bit about possessions, so she’s ready to take a more active role in fighting the forces of darkness."

William Bibbiani, The Wrap 

"Back in the role for the first time since 1973, it's heartening to see the 90-year-old Burstyn looking so strong and beautiful, but from the moment she appears, 'The Exorcist: Believer' loses one IQ point per minute. Green drops the ambiguity, forgets about the homeless people, and throws away the analogy between a possessive father and a possessive demon. He also abandons the careful pacing and subdued mood of the film's first half. In their place, he piles on jump scares, digital effects, sentimental music, and a succession of inspirational speeches: the priests aren't the only people in the story who deliver sermons."
 
Nicholas Barber, BBC.com 

"The religion-vs.-science debate part of 'The Exorcist: Believer' is the definition of musty. And though the film presents itself as a 'new' take on 'The Exorcist,' it spends a lot of time bending over backwards to reference the old take, from a fresh version of 'Tubular Bells' that sounds like it was recorded by Bruce Hornsby to the 90-year-old Ellen Burstyn reprising the role of Chris MacNeil. It seems that after Regan’s exorcism, Chris wrote a book and went around the world, lecturing audiences about what she saw, even as Regan herself disappeared. Chris hasn’t heard from her since."
 
Owen Gleiberman, Variety

"DP Michael Simmonds, who shot Green’s 'Halloween' trilogy, gives 'Believer' a moody look, with lots of brooding night scenes and an unhealthy pallor that takes hold as the situation gets hairier. Editor Tim Alverson keeps the action churning and goes admirably light on jump scares. And the music by David Wingo and Amman Abbasi turns up the tension, even if there’s nothing here to rival the needling effectiveness of Mike Oldfield’s 'Tubular Bells,' which makes a welcome return in key moments, albeit in a remix that nixes the bells. That watered-down version of an inspired horror theme is symptomatic of a movie that starts out full of promise but fumbles the material as the stakes get higher. It’s no surprise that 'Believer' is less terrifying than its venerable progenitor. That it’s considerably less daring than a movie made half a century ago compounds the disappointment."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
FOE - Park Jiha, Oliver Coates, Agnes Obel

"Evocatively shot by Mátyás Erdély and scored by Oliver Coates, Park Jiha and Agnes Obel, 'Foe' has atmosphere to spare. Alas, it ultimately doesn’t know what to do with it, and resorts to leaning into (oft-nude) Mescal’s histrionics. Let off the proverbial leash in the film’s second half, the leading man goes overboard, wailing, fuming, cackling, and furiously punching walls, but the more energy he exerts, the less Junior feels genuine, and not in an intentional way. Issues regarding artificial intelligence, amour, completeness, rebirth and fresh starts are all fundamental to Davis and Reid’s tale, yet the director’s oblique plotting grows wearisome and his final act’s drama frequently verges on the laughable -- and, in its big-revelation scene, tips over into it, after which a prolonged coda reveals that the entire affair is about becoming real via the synthetic."
 
Nick Schager, The Daily Beast 
 
"The difference is that our curiosity is compounded by the weight of genre expectations and thematic symbolism, while Hen and Junior have grown numb to the alien desolation of the landscape around them (vividly portrayed by the Winton Wetlands of Australia). They can’t hear the pleading strains of Park Jiha and Oliver Coates’ masterful score (although the piano composition that Agnes Obel wrote for Hen to play serves as a conduit), or appreciate the inertia of the film’s accelerating timeline."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"There’s plenty of atmosphere in the imagery of Erdély’s cinematography and Patrice Vermette’s bleak production design, and in the eerie sounds of a wide-ranging score by Oliver Coates, Park Jiha and Agnes Obel. But the questions 'Foe' is pondering -- about creating human consciousness, connections, even love in artificial replacements -- are too predetermined to be provocative. Better to look to a more boldly imaginative consideration of the subject, like 'Ex Machina,' for stimulating answers."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
GOOD MADAM - Simon Ratcliffe
 
"It’s nice to know that the Black lady who sings 'hmmmmmm-HMMMMMM' on the soundtrack to symbolize Black trauma in American movies has international equivalents. In the hideously offensive South African horror film 'Good Madam,' she’s replaced by a cacophony of African chants and drums while all manner of terrible things occur onscreen. One character is nearly killed by her toothbrush. Another character, a domestic, is seen on her hands and knees scrubbing a floor so violently that her hands are shredded to bits. The sound mix repeatedly plays the scraping of numerous types of cleaning brushes so loudly that it sounds like a pterodactyl scratching itself. Without fail, anytime something bad is about to happen to stressed out mother Tsidi (Chumisa Cosa), the chants invade the soundtrack. The subtitles should say 'humming mournfully' whenever that happens."
 
Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com 
 
HIT THE ROAD - Payman Yazdanian

"'Hit the Road' begins with a delicate score, a tranquil moment that’s quickly interrupted by the static of a cellphone, one that’s not supposed to be in the car with the family of four that’s on the run. The younger brother (Sarlak) has smuggled it in, the beginning of many antics from this child whose disruptive nature breaks up the dread of what’s to come at the end of the family’s journey. The young kid is to believe his older brother (Simiar) is going away to get married to a beautiful wife, but the reality is much bleaker, as the family races off to a future where their son is safe from the oppressive Iranian government, but far away from them."
 
Jenny Nulf, The Austin Chronicle 
 
"There is a sparseness to Hit the Road that reveals the intuitiveness of Panahi’s filmmaking, his grasp of these characters and how they tug and poke at each other, and his understanding of the ways fear, paranoia, and loss turn us into people we might not like, let alone recognize. Given all that success, one of 'Hit the Road''s only missteps is its overly manipulative use of Payman Yazdanian’s piano score, which never feels quite right in a film that is otherwise so self-assured (especially as it cycles through pre-Iranian Revolution pop classics for the family to sing along to). In Farsi, the film’s title is 'Jadde Khaki,' which literally translates to 'dirt road' -- a thoroughfare open to travelers, but earthy, raw, and unfinished. The choice to travel upon it can be an act of trespass or transformation, and Hit the Road honors the irreversibility of both."
 
Roxana Hadadi, New York 

THE INVENTOR - Alex Mandel
 
"If all of that sounds way too heady for an animated movie, it is in theory, but not in execution. The minimalist, cartoony stop-motion character design (reminiscent of the human characters in the classic Rankin/Bass stop-motion specials) is both whimsical and charming, which means even the most complicated ideas imparted by them come across warm and accessible. The 2D animations are where da Vinci’s more abstract ideas are expressed and even then, when he’s wrestling with heavy concepts like death or regret, they are gracefully expressed to land effectively with both children and adult viewers. The shift between styles creates a sense of momentum and adds fluid energy to The Inventor as a whole, allowing the different mediums to illustrate the variety of inventiveness contained within da Vinci’s brain. Alex Mandel’s lively and infectious score also keeps the film vibrant, featuring instruments from da Vinci’s era like violins and lutes which underscore the uplifting optimism at the heart of his pursuits. Mandel also wrote nine original songs for the film which are sung by the voice cast, with Ridley and Cotillard’s efforts the most memorable of the pack."
 
Tara Bennett, Paste Magazine 

"Despite its heavy-duty subject matter, the film co-directed by Capobianco and Pierre-Luc Granjon is filled with welcome humor of both the visual and verbal varieties. The animation features many amusing touches and there are some wonderfully sly jokes, such as the Mona Lisa being exhibited to crowds that immediately swell to the point where no one can see it. When a royal figure tells Leonardo his plan to inspire a renaissance, the elderly artist muses, 'A Renaissance? Hum, I like the sound of that!' There are also several lively musical numbers (perhaps too many), composed by Alex Mandel, that provide diverting respites from the talky proceedings."
 
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter 

NO ONE WILL SAVE YOU - Joseph Trapanese

"The score by Joseph Trapanese ('The Witcher') is especially worthy of praise, with shrill, stabbing violins and brooding synths that punctuate a soundscape of gasping breaths and indecipherable guttural roars and chittering. Both Dever and Trapanese are the undisputed MVPs of this film, carrying a majority of the dramatic and emotional weight of 'No One WIll Save You' through their combined efforts."
 
Toussaint Egan, Polygon 

"Jump scares in it aren’t scary; musically, it presses the gas pedal way too hard to try and captivate, and color-wise, its comatose green and desaturated look doesn’t do it a lot of favors either. It’s not pretty; it’s not enjoyable or scary, nor does it offer anything insightful, interesting, or new to say about this world and alien invasion milieu."
 
Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist 
 
"The expertly crafted details of 'No One Will Save You' make it stand out from the crowd of similar genre fare. The score and the sound design play a huge role in making the film an effective and horrifying romp through the rural area in which Brynn finds herself the target of an alien invasion. The music of the film, composed by Joseph Trapanese, is practically its own character, guiding the audience through moments of emotion and the occasional bit of levity while striking just the right chord of terror as Brynn fights for her life against the imposing alien creatures who've made themselves at home in her house. In accompaniment with the music, the sound design of the movie adds its own layer of horror. The alien creatures themselves have an unnerving guttural tone and the things that go bump in the night induce the kind of fear that makes you feel as though you're holding your breath along with Brynn."
 
Samantha Coley, Collider 
 
PAW PATROL: THE MIGHTY MOVIE - Pinar Toprak
 
"Action sequences and their aesthetics have evolved. Scenes that show the team functioning as a well-oiled machine are exhilarating, but pull double duty narratively, propelling the characters and their conflicts further. It’s also fun to see this turn into a family affair with returning player Kim Kardashian West -- who perfectly voices prissy poodle Delores -- accompanied by her children North and Saint in supporting roles. Composer Pinar Toprak’s evocative score is complementary without being pushy, enhancing character drive. Fur, water, lasers, fire and cloud elements are visually dazzling, while the climactic face-off between the puppy protagonists and their adversary feels electrically charged in these capable animators’ hands."
 
Courtney Howard, Variety 
 
REVOIR PARIS - Anna von Hausswolff
 
"Mia’s involves reconciling one broken relationship with the allure of a possible new one, a narrative thread that toggles uneasily between acuity in its details and a regrettable predictability. Where it’s all happening, however, is an aural/visual asset -- Paris captured in all its sensorial intimacy and roar by Stéphane Fontaine’s cinematography and Anna von Hausswolff’s churning score. When Winocour sets a scene in front of the calming beauty of Monet’s 'The Water Lilies' at the Musée de L’Orangerie, it’s art getting the superstar cameo treatment."
 
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times 

SHE CAME TO ME - Bryce Dessner

"One of the most ambitious and impressive aspects of 'She Came to Me' is the music, including two operatic fragments that are included in the film (along with the burbling orchestral score written by Bryce Dessner). It raises the interesting idea of what the project might be if it were an actual comic operetta, where the music and visual elements could be primary and the improbability of the performances and plot would be less of a distraction."
 
Liam Lacey, Original Cin
 
"Buoyed by a score from Bryce Dessner of the rock band the National, an original Bruce Springsteen song and the expert performances of its all-in ensemble, the film also casts a luminous aura around a first love, that of two high schoolers, Julian (Evan Ellison) and Tereza (Harlow Jane). He’s Patricia’s son and Steven’s stepson; she’s the daughter of their housekeeper, Magdalena (Joanna Kulig in a soulful turn). Tereza’s stepfather, Trey (Brian d’Arcy James), is a persnickety Civil War re-enactor and a court reporter."
 
Lisa Kennedy, The New York Times 
 
"If you’re wondering how much quirk one movie can take, you’re not alone, raising the question of how it ever got cast, let alone made. Yet somehow, it did, even landing a tinkly score by Bryce Dessner of The National and an original Bruce Springsteen song for the end credits, appropriately titled 'Addicted to Romance.' Dessner has fun composing excerpts from two original operas, as does the design team staging those pieces. But 'She Came to Me' is a movie whose strained eccentricity gets positively goopy, conveying so little genuine feeling that the stakes for any of the characters never feel terribly high."
