Truth Or Dare
Movie: Truth or dare? Me: Truth. Movie: What do you think of me? Me: You totally suck. There were ZERO scares during the entire movie and you are supposed to be a horror film. Shoot, you barely even made an attempt to do jump scares. Movie: Ouch. Me: The truth hurts. Okay, your turn. Truth or dare? Movie: Truth. Me: Did you really think you could follow a horror movie like A QUIET PLACE? Movie: No,...

Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero
This is an interesting film. On one hand I loved it and would highly recommend it. On the other, it's a film that covers a lot of dark subject matter that may not be appropriate for your children. I took my 6 and 8 year old daughters. It was too much for the 6 year old. She loved the dog and the fun moments, but there were some images and events that she did not want to see. She spent a good portion of the movie covering her eyes or her ears. The 8 year old was...

Beirut
I'm not really sure why this movie was made. It's a good movie. It's interesting. But it just feels like a film that has no audience. It would have made a little more sense if this was based on a true story or based in the current day Middle East, but it's a fictional story based in the 1970s and 1980s. I will be shocked if this makes more that $5 Million total. Audience aside, the acting is outstanding and the story is compelling. It has pacing issues, character issues, and a couple of...

Isle of Dogs
If you are a Wes Anderson fan you are going to love this movie. It is one of his top works. If you can't stand films like THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, FANTASTIC MR. FOX, or MOONRISE KINGDOM then stay far away from this one. Wes Anderson films are quirky and have an acquired taste. They are works of art more than they are films. It's like walking into an art gallery and having the paintings start telling a story. If you can handle the quirkiness, this movie is uniquely animated, funny, heartwarming, and compelling....

Chappaquiddick
As evidenced by the theater where I saw this film and from reports of other friends that have seen this movie, this is a very popular film among the 60+ age group. Each showing has been a nearly packed house. What is interesting is that this is a story that, for some reason, does not resonate with people too young to remember this event. Personally, I knew about it, but I was born years after it happened, so by then it was an old story, swept under Washington's rug. Now that we are almost 50 years...

A Quiet Place
This is the horror/monster movie I have always wanted to see, and finally it exists! I am so happy that someone made a smart, intense, suspenseful film that will scare the ever-loving snot out of you. From the opening scene to the end credits the stakes are high, the characters are real and likable, and the pressure is insurmountable. And even without talking the movie is able to give us all of the important information we need to understand all that is happening. The only bad thing about this movie is that it is...

Blockers
BLOCKERS, (because nobody is allowed to say or print the real, full title of this movie for fear of getting in trouble from the censors), is a fun, funny film that has some heartwarming moments, and some of the most cringe-worthy scenes you will ever witness on the big screen. It is a coming-of-age story for the kids in the film, but it is also a coming-of-age story for their parents as well. We see the kids start to realize that actions have consequences, while the parents begin to understand that their children need to have room...

The Miracle Season
This is a well-written, emotional story that the whole family can enjoy. It's not a great film by any stretch of the imagination, but it gets the point across in a meaningful way. It feels a lot like a high-quality made-for-TV movie rather than a big screen film, but the story makes up for the lack of quality. The acting is pretty basic, even from the bigger stars in the film. There are several moments where cameos were given to people that aren't actors and it shows. However, the volleyball that is played in...

Ready Player One
This is one of the most fascinating and unique films I have seen in the past several years. The plot is captivating, the world is interesting, and the visuals are second to none. But the best part of this movie is that this is the kind of thing that could actually happen in real life. While the acting isn't outstanding, the characters are still very real and you care about them and their quest. Whether they are the "real life" characters or the avatars there is an emotional connection that will have you rooting for the little...

Acrimony
I am a huge fan of Taraji P. Henson. She is amazing in just about every film she's ever been in. Even bad movies, she makes them better. That is until Tyler Perry put her in this stinker. Not even the great Henson can save ACRIMONY from being anything other than a ridiculous whirlwind of stupidity and poor film making. Henson's character is so unlikable from the start that I never really cared if what she was saying was true or if she was crazy. And by the end of the movie I just wanted everyone to...

Paul, Apostle of Christ
If you have ever read the Bible you know that there is a lot of R-rated content in many of the stories. Unfortunately, that doesn't translate well when it comes to making a "Christian" film that Christians will want to see. Thankfully, Affirm Studios (Sony) has decided that making the movies in the same way that the stories are told in the Bible is worth the risk. Because they are willing to take the risk, we are able to see a powerful film with high stakes, strong emotion, and characters that feel real. It is so...

Sherlock Gnomes
There are few things more painful in the movie-going world than to have to sit through a "comedy" that isn't funny. I saw this in a theater with about 20 kids and their parents. There wasn't a single time that anybody laughed out loud. Not once. "How can this be," you ask? "But, I saw the trailer and it was really funny," you say. Well, all of the funny stuff you saw in the trailer didn't make the final cut of the movie. None of it. Oh, and the big hype about all of the reworked Elton...

Unsane
This is one of those films where I find myself parting ways with most of the film critics of the world. I keep on hearing things like, "this is Steven Soderbergh's homage to B movies", and "this whole film was shot using an iPhone," and "this is an ambitious film." But here is the reality... This film sucks. The writing is horrendous, giving the actors nothing with which to work, the story is flat with not a single twist, and the reveal happens so early in the film that there is zero suspense for...

Pacific Rim: Uprising
If you were a fan of the original PACIFIC RIM this is a sequel you have been wanting for five years. The good news is that this is another super-fun monster movie. The bad news is that it isn't as good as the first one. I'm not saying this film is bad, it's actually pretty good. However, if they made this story first I doubt we would have gotten a sequel. This one is more about the monsters and their journey rather than the relationships of the characters that made the first film so emotional and compelling....
