Tommy's Honour
If you are a fan of golf and its history, you will enjoy this film. For those people that have no interest in the game, this movie will feel jumpy, slow, and quite depressing. The cinematography and costuming are beautiful, and the film is acted well, but the pacing and the story telling are lacking. It feels more like a made for TV movie than a big screen film. While it is an interesting, if not sad and tragic, story, there is nothing in it that makes it worth spending the money to...

Going In Style
This is a fine film. If you spend the money to see it in theaters you won't be upset that you did. However, a few months from now when it comes out on DVD you'll probably struggle to remember that you even saw it. It is fun and funny, but it is also a forgettable film. There is nothing about it that makes it worth seeing in theaters, unless you are just desperate to see a comedy on the big screen. And for that, I don't blame you because it's been six months since a non-raunchy...

Smurfs: The Lost Village
The first couple of films in this reboot were absolutely terrible. This one is entirely animated and is almost tolerable. Almost. My young daughters thought it was okay, but they weren't hopping up and down with excitement like they were for THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE and THE BOSS BABY. The animation is mediocre, the voice work is well below average, and the story is okay at best. There isn't anything that is downright bad about this movie, but there isn't anything great either. ...

The Boss Baby
This is a fun film for the whole family. Children will love it because it is silly and funny, adults will love it because it is smart and unique. This is one of the few animated films that is worth spending the money to enjoy it with the whole family at the theater. For the kids, this movie is non-stop laughter. Just imagine how many potty jokes you can fit into a 90 minute movie about babies. They are everywhere! I don't recall my young girls laughing during a movie as much as they did in THE...

Ghost In The Shell
This is one of those films that has all sorts of potential and yet still manages to let you down almost completely. It is slow, it has huge plot holes, the acting is terrible, and the story doesn't do anything to make you want to care for any of the characters. The good news is that many of the visuals are incredible. Obviously, they decided to spend most of their budget on making the film look good rather than be good. Unfortunately, origin stories tend to be slow simply because so much information has...

The Zookeeper's Wife
Jessica Chastain gives another incredible performance in this powerful and moving film. She, along, with the rest of the cast, lead you on a journey that is difficult to watch, but something that needs to be seen and remembered. Once the film gets going the suspense, drama, and intensity stay with you throughout the rest of the movie. That said, the film does have a few problems. This is a slow-moving film with pacing issues, but the story itself is powerful enough to make this a film worth seeing even if you have to endure some clock-watching...

Power Rangers
Growing up I never got into the POWER RANGERS. It always looked super cheesy and lame to me. I have to admit, when I heard that they were making a POWER RANGERS movie I cringed a little bit at the thought of having to sit through two hours of low-budget, campy, cheesiness. Fortunately, this film leaves the cheese behind. This is a fun popcorn flick that tells an interesting story without being campy. It's got compelling characters, fun action, a great back story, and all of the nostalgia a fan of the...

CHIPS
If you remember CHIPS from the late 70s, just go ahead and forget it because this movie is nothing like the TV show. While the TV show was mostly family-friendly, this version is raunchy and gross. This film tries to be both funny and a dangerous mystery, but it fails at both. It's not really that funny and the case is pretty lame. There are several moments where the movie jumps ahead forcing the audience to fill in the blanks, which is confusing and annoying. While Shepard and Pena do okay jobs...

Life
This is one of those films that is a slow burn and then it's over. While we do get a couple of exciting and suspenseful moments, but for the most part it's nothing more than a 100 minute game of hide and seek. The cast does a fine job with what little they have to work with, but there isn't anything in their performances that is noteworthy. The story is pretty much the same. It's fine, but nothing that makes it worth spending $15 to see it. The movie does have an...

Beauty And The Beast
Disney has done it again. They've taken a masterpiece, reworked it and managed to come up with something familiar, but also new and impressive. I was excited when this film was announced, but my excitement turned to nervousness when I saw the trailers and it looked like they were simply making a shot-for-shot remake of the original animated movie. Now that I have seen it, I can tell you there is a lot of new and interesting material in this version that makes it even more compelling than the original. This version gives us...

The Belko Experiment
This may well be the smartest slasher flick ever made. That said, it is still a slasher flick. So, if you aren't into horror films, or you can't handle gruesome violence, you should go ahead and cross this one off your list and never think of it again. For those of you that do enjoy 90 minutes of mayhem, you should run to the theater as fast as you can. You will be treated to something that I can only describe as a mashup of LORD OF THE FLIES, THE HUNGER GAMES, and OFFICE SPACE. ...

Kong: Skull Island
In a long line of Hollywood monster movies, this is another one. If all you need out of a movie like this is a bunch of people shooting at animals that are hundreds of times larger than them, then grab your popcorn and have a blast. If you need a bit more than that in your movie-going experience, you should probably go ahead and skip this one. You know it isn't a great movie when you have thoughts like, "Wow, I sure am glad that John C. Reilly is in this movie. He's carrying the whole film."...

Before I Fall
BEFORE I FALL is basically a mashup of THE BREAKFAST CLUB, MEAN GIRLS, and GROUNDHOG DAY, but mostly the good parts. This is an interesting premise that, one the one hand makes you wish you could relive moments of your life, but on the other hand, shows you how terrible that could be. The film starts out in an obnoxious way with about 30 minutes of thoroughly self-centered and shallow behavior all set to a soundtrack that just screams, "hey, listen to me! I'm the soundtrack and I'm cool, too!" After that...

Logan
I was skeptical when I heard there was going to be another Wolverine movie, but the trailers intrigued me. Now that I have seen the film, I am thrilled that it turned out as well as it did. While this is another comic book movie, parents need to know that this film is rated R for a reason. There is adult language throughout and the violence is brutal. This isn't the comic book violence we are used to seeing in films like THE AVENGERS. This is much more along the lines of DEADPOOL. (Speaking of DEADPOOL,...

The Shack
This is one of those interesting films where it is too long, the acting isn't great, and the dialogue is repetitive and awkward, but the story is so powerful and moving that it supersedes all of the negatives. If you haven't read the book, this is an amazing story about forgiveness and love. It is told in a fascinating way that keeps you engaged throughout the story. The interesting thing about this film is that there is something for everyone. No matter where you are in life, you will be able to...
