Ad Astra
When I saw that this movie had Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones and space pirates I couldn't wait for the day when it finally hit theaters. Now that I've seen it, I wish they had spent a little more time trying to make it better. On some levels I really enjoyed this movie. The cinematography, the lighting, the frightening feeling of being alone in space, and the music were all fantastic. I caught myself holding my breath several times during the last 30 minutes of the film. Unfortunately, the first 90 minutes...

Downton Abbey
If you are a fan of the DOWNTON ABBEY television show stop reading now and just head to the theater. There is nothing that I can say that would stop you from seeing this movie, nor would I want to stop you. Go, henceforth, and may joyous tidings be unto you. If you've never seen the show, but you are thinking about seeing the film, the good news is you won't be completely lost. Sure, there are a lot of inside things true fans will get that you won't, but you will understand who the characters are...

Hustlers
This is one of those films that could have been so great. It has a fascinating story, (based somewhat off of a true story), and great acting. Unfortunately, the editing and cinematography pull this movie back into the "average" category. There has been a lot of Oscar talk for Jennifer Lopez as Best Supporting Actress. She is very good, but I don't see her making the cut for a nomination. She doesn't stand out like one would typically see from an Oscar nominee. And that is mainly because Constance Wu and the rest of the cast are...

Brittany Runs A Marathon
I love a good inspirational film. A film that has the ability to motivate you, touch your soul, and give you all of the warm, tingly feelings. This is not one of those films. It wants to be, but it isn't. This is based on a true story, and the real story is quite inspirational. I'm not really sure how the people in charge of this movie managed to swing and miss when it came down to it, but they did. The whole time I was watching the...

It Chapter 2
If you haven't seen the first movie stop reading now. You absolutely have to see the first film for anything in this movie to make sense. For those of you that have already seen the first movie, get ready for a crazy ride. Okay, so, I need you to see this movie right away because we need to talk. There is so much going on in this nearly 3-hour freak-fest that we all will need people to help us just to figure out what is going on and why. While this movie isn't...

Don't Let Go
This film is based on an interesting and unique premise. It requires a lot of suspension of disbelief, but if you can get there, this movie is intriguing and suspenseful. It has elements of a crime drama, but it also slides into the paranormal genre as well. The pacing isn't great. There are several moments where the story seems to drag along, but other than that everything else is a positive. The best part of the film is the acting. Storm Reid is amazing in her role. She does a fantastic job of getting the audience...

The Peanut Butter Falcon
This film has a great chance to be the feel good movie of the year. It is so simple, but it is absolutely beautiful in its simplicity. I kept on catching myself with a big, stupid grin on my face as the story unfolded. And when it came to an end it left me wanting so much more. It's hard to believe that a movie about a couple of misfits in love with back-woods wrestling could make for one of the great films of the year, but it is true. This film is superb. ...

Angel Has Fallen
This is the third film in the "FALLEN" franchise. You would think by now that the President would realize that his number one security guy is incredibly terrible at his job, because people have almost killed him in massive plots three different times. Just fire the guy already! As for the movie, it's the same stuff as before, just a different setting. Lot's of explosions, lots of gunfire, and about a thousand laws broken, but none of that matters in the end, because the good guy finally gets his man. ...

Overcomer
If you've seen any of the Kendrick brothers' movies, you know exactly what you are getting yourself into with this film. Is it a cinematic masterpiece? No, but it is inspirational, it will make you ugly cry, and it is a good, clean story for families. There aren't a lot of family-friendly films that are entertaining enough to earn your theater dollars and your time. This one teeters on the edge of being good enough to see in theaters, but when it comes down to it, there really isn't anything in the movie that makes it...

Ready Or Not
There is a fine line when a horror film tries to be quirky and funny at the same time. Most horror flicks don't get it right. This one gets it close enough to right to make it fun and entertaining. In fact, this may be my favorite horror film to come along since IT hit the big screen. (Although HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U was really good, too). It takes a few minutes for this movie to hit it's stride. At the beginning it feels like the pacing, the actors, and even the music aren't...

47 Meters Down: Uncaged
If you saw the first film in this franchise you know that the ending made most people throw their leftover popcorn at the screen. Thankfully, the makers of this movie learned their lesson and didn't give us a terrible ending. This flick is not great by any stretch of the imagination, but it does exactly what it sets out to do. It makes you feel lost, claustrophobic, and panicked, and then the sharks show up and scare you half to death. This isn't a movie for people that like to think about plot, or examine why...

Good Boys
It isn't very often that you can see a movie that is sweet, heart-warming, and adorable, and at the same time it is, insanely raunchy, foul-mouthed, drug-filled, and ridiculously hilarious. It's even less often that those opposite elements can be combined to make a great movie. In this case, they work. Jacob Tremblay (ROOM, WONDER) is fantastic in his first coming-of-age role. He's been a great actor for years already, but this film proves that he also has comedic timing. His co-stars are wonderful in their own ways. Keith Williams steals a ton of...

Blinded By The Light
I don't really like to compare movies to other films, but in this case I almost have to do it. This is a British comedy focused on music. It would be shelved right beside films like YESTERDAY and SING STREET. Unfortunately, both of those films are far superior to this one. This movie feels like a low-budget, second-year-film-student project. It has pacing issues, the acting, aside from a couple of secondary characters is bad, the dialogue is stilted, and for a movie about a teen's love for all things Bruce Springsteen, it feels like there aren't a...

The Angry Birds Movie 2
This is one of those times where Hollywood should have walked away when it had the chance. The first ANGRY BIRDS movie was a lot of fun, and funny. This one feels like nothing more than a poorly written cash grab. I saw it in a theater with a bunch of kids and their parents. I might as well have been in a library with how quiet the place was. I guess on the one hand, maybe that means the kids were captivated enough by the movie to sit quiet and still for 100 minutes, but it...

Dora and the Lost City of Gold
As the father of five kids I have seen what feels like several thousand episodes of DORA THE EXPLORER. When I heard about the live action film I was wondering how they were going to take something so simple and turn it into something fun for the kids but also exciting enough to keep parents from being insanely bored. I shouldn't have worried, because they killed it. This movie is so much fun for kids and adults. There are hilarious throwbacks to the cartoon, there are moments of irreverence. and there are poop jokes....
