Rock Dog
It's not really fair to judge a film by comparison to other films, but this one was released just three weeks after THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE and I can't help but see how much ROCK DOG pales in comparison to it. Not only is it not in the same ballpark, but they aren't even playing the same game. I took my young daughters to see this movie. One of them thought it was okay, the other didn't like it. I did hear them both giggling a couple of times, but I also looked over at them...

Get Out
I must admit, when I saw that this was a horror film written and direct by Jordan Peele I was a bit skeptical that the comedic genius could switch genres and make a decent film. Well, he did more than that, he made a GREAT movie full of suspense, comedy, and racial satire. GET OUT is suspenseful, but it isn't scary per se. There are a few jump-out-and-say-boo moments, but those are there just for show. The real creepiness of this film is in the story. As the movie progresses and the puzzle pieces fall into place...

Collide
If you like expensive cars, high speed chases, and you don't care about things like plot holes or good writing, or good acting you'll love this movie. For everyone else, you need to be willing to check your brain at the door if you are going to enjoy this film at all. This film does offer some great action scenes in some super sexy sports cars, a decent amount of suspense, and a good twist (even though the twist relies on a massive plot hole, but remember, we've already checked our brains at the door). It's...

Fist Fight
When a 10 year old girl steals the show by singing a Big Sean song you can figure out a couple of things about the movie. First, it's going to be raunchy and second, the rest of the movie isn't as funny as one would hope it would be. All of the characters in this film are fun and funny, but everyone plays exactly to type. Charlie Day is the same person he is in almost every other movie he's done, and the same can be said for Jillian Bell and Tracy Morgan. Ice Cube does a...

The Great Wall
Hey, Hollywood. *Taps microphone* Is this thing on? Are you aware that it is 2017 and the world no longer wants movies about a "Great White Hope"? Apparently not. Also, are you aware that the sci-fi trope of "One brain to rule them all", a.k.a. "Kill the queen and they all die", should NEVER be used again, because we've seen it in dozens of sci-fi films? Again, apparently not. Seriously, this film could have been done 10 different ways without having to bring in a white guy, (who has never even...

A Cure For Wellness
This film has a couple of interesting things going for it. There is a good mystery and there are several moments of hold-your-breath suspense. The story is interesting and will draw you in for the first 3/4 of the film. But then the ending happens. Oh, dear reader, the last 20 minutes of this film are so horrifically bad, so insanely stupid that it almost completely undoes all of the mystery and suspense leading up to that point. I could literally hear groans from the audience around me as this film fell apart....

The Lego Batman Movie
Yes! Yes! Yes! Admittedly unfairly, my expectations for this movie were sky high, and THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE lived up to every single one of them! Not only does this film deserve to win next year's Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but at this point it deserves a nomination for Best Picture. It is that good. I took my young daughters to see this film and they loved it, but they didn't love it as much as their mother and I did. Adults need to see this movie. It is full of what I...

Fifty Shades Darker
Really? We're doing this again? I could probably just copy and paste my review of the first film here and it would suffice, but I'll be better than the film and try to make this somewhat original. When I saw the second trailer for this movie I was legitimately intrigued. It featured a strange girl that seemed to be stalking Anastasia, and it felt like the movie might genuinely have some suspense, conflict and a decent story line. I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I saw this two-hour long movie and...

John Wick: Chapter 2
If you didn't see the first JOHN WICK film stop reading this right now and go watch it! I'll wait. Hmm dee hmm dee hmm hmmmmm. Okay, welcome back. Great movie, right? JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 is just as good. Yes, at its core this is just a graphically violent action flick with a guy that is apparently impossible to seriously maim much less kill, but this film is so much more than that. It continues to expand on one of the most unique and...

Moonlight
This is a fascinating, slice-of-life, film that has moments of brilliance. It isn't a great movie, but it is a movie that you shouldn't miss if you are someone that goes to the theater at least once a week. If you are a casual movie-goer you will probably find this film to be somewhat slow and awkward. Mahershala Ali's acting is award-worthy and Naomie Harris gives a performance that will break you into pieces. The trio of actors playing the lead character all do an amazing job. They may not be up for many awards, but...

Rings
THE RING may be one of the scariest movies of all time. If you even mention that film you can see people visibly shake the chills away. This third installment of the franchise has some truly terrifying moments, but I would't say that it lives up to the fright of the original. The movie feels pretty slow for the first hour, but the last 30 minutes kick in hard giving the audience non-stop thrills and chills for the last third of the film. There are some good jumps and bumps along the way, but don't expect...

The Space Between Us
I'm starting to feel bad for Britt Robertson. She is a wonderful actor that brings a lot to every role. Unfortunately, she may go down in history at the greatest actor to never get the opportunity to star in a good movie. This film had a lot of potential and a great cast, but, like living on Mars without a spacesuit, this one just didn't work out. The chemistry between Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson is terrible, and she looks about 10 years older than him making their relationship feel icky. This film is...

The Comedian
There seems to be a new trend in Hollywood of making films that don't have a target audience. This is at least the third film released just this year that falls into that category. It's an average film with an all-star cast, but it will only be in theaters for a few weeks because there is no group that is excited to see this movie. If it finishes higher than 7 or 8 in the top 10 this weekend I will be shocked. If I was a betting man I would put my money on it not even cracking the...

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
I'm sure that Director Paul Anderson is a nice guy with a wonderful family (Milla Jovovich is his wife and their daughter plays The Red Queen), but maybe they should think about coming up with another family hobby instead of making zombie movies together. This film is so ridiculously full of plot holes, sheer nonsense, moments of convenience, and utter stupidity that it isn't even worth a RedBox rental with a free coupon. The shaky camera trick covers up all of the action scenes, so you have no idea what is going...

A Dog's Purpose
NOTE: I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding this film right now. My review has nothing to do with that. I am simply reviewing the movie for what it is. I'll leave the controversy for people much more qualified than myself to address. As I sat through the screening for this film several thoughts went through my head. They were thoughts like: 1. I would NEVER take my young daughters to see this movie, it would take therapy for them to recover from the trauma. 2. Did the writers even...
