The Meg
There isn't much to say about THE MEG other than it is stupid, ridiculously awesome fun. That breaks down to about 20% fun, 10% awesome, 20% ridiculous, and 50% stupid. I don't say this often, but this is a movie that was begging to have an R rating, but they pulled their punches and made a PG-13 flick. It's okay as a PG-13, but it could have been so much better worse more if it were rated R. At least then we would have been able to see some more shark action. Obviously, this...

Slender Man
The whole Slender Man phenomenon was a huge deal about 6 or 7 years ago. Why they decided to wait until now to release a movie about him is a question that will probably never get answered. The good news is, this movie is so bad that we won't have to worry about it in about two weeks when it finishes its theatrical run. This is easily one of the slowest horror flicks I've ever had the misfortune of enduring. It's about 90 minutes long, but it feels so much longer. Then, on top...

Blackkklansman
Spike Lee is at it again with another piercing film that will make you think while you laugh and cringe. And this time it is based on a true story. This movie is filled with incredible acting, amazing writing, great suspense, biting comedy, and so many moments that will make you squirm in your seat. It is powerful and meaningful, but it doesn't take itself too seriously. (Until the end, but we will get to that in a minute). The film is perfectly cast and all of the actors make it feel...

Dog Days
Oh. My. Goodness. Do you say congratulations to a film that is very much in the running for one of the worst movies of the year? If so, congratulations, DOG DAYS, you're a terrible waste of time! I don't care how much you love dogs, I don't care how much you love ensemble cast movies, none of that matters anymore. There is nothing that can save this movie from being the dumpster fire that it is. Here are the only good things about this movie: 1. Vanessa Hudgens and John Bass...

The Darkest Minds
There is no doubt that Amandla Stenberg has become one of the best young actors in Hollywood today. Unfortunately, this movie leaves a her in a position to have to carry the whole thing. She does a great job, but there is only so much she could do to save a mediocre script and story. The whole thing feels like a poor man's version of DIVERGENT. The kids are separated by talent, it's distopian, a girl and a small group of friends buck the system and try to start a revolution. Sound familiar? This...

The Spy Who Dumped Me
For a comedy like this to work the spy story still has to be a good one. It can't be a fluff story with a bunch of laughs. This one almost gets there. It starts off really promising and has several great moments, but the story gets convoluted along the way. It is a funny film, so if you need some good laughs you will get them. The only downside to the funny is that Kate McKinnon's character wears thin quickly. I love McKinnon in everything she has done up to this point, but by the halfway...

Christopher Robin
When I saw the first trailer for this film I was intrigued. I wondered if we were going to get another classic like HOOK, or another powerful and emotional film like GOODBYE, CHRISTOPHER ROBIN. Unfortunately, what we ended up with is a formulaic, slow-moving film with no discernable audience. For the first several minutes I thought we were going to get the emotional movie, there were several scenes that were poignant but also dark. The themes were too adult for children to understand and the pacing was to slow to keep the kids engaged. About 15 minutes...

Mission: Impossible - Fallout
It is quite amazing that after 22 years and six films the Mission Impossible franchise is still going strong, and the movies are getting better all the time. This is another edge-of-your seat. nail biting, action flick that will have you holding your breath and squirming in your seat trying to avoid the things flying at you. The cast is incredible with several past characters making dramatic returns as well as a strong role for Henry Cavill. They all bring a dynamic to the film that could not be achieved by lesser actors. ...

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies
If you are a fan of the TEEN TITANS GO! TV series this is a must-see movie. It is the movie you never knew you wanted, but now that it is here you realize how empty your life has been without this amazing film in your life. It is crazy funny, irreverent, (but not to the point where it is no longer family-friendly), and goofy just like the TV show. But it also gives us so much more to love in this longer form. You will laugh until your sides hurt, and then you will want to...

Eighth Grade
To date, this is easily one of the best films of 2018. It is a perfect slice of life story about one of the worst years in all of our lives. One minute you will be laughing, then you'll be crying, and after that you'll want to climb into the movie and give the poor girl a hug and tell her everything gets better. It does a great job of using the story to mimic the emotions and awkwardness of eighth grade. In fact, it does such a good job it my take you some time to...

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again
Yes, here we go again... Only this time it is much better than the first one! If you loved the first MAMMA MIA film then this is a must-see for you. For those of you that didn't really care for the auditory talent in the first film. (*Everyone stops to stare at Pierce Brosnan.*) Never fear, because this flick is filled with a ton of people who can really sing. Even the story is better this time around. It's a lot more fun and carefree than the first. We...

The Equalizer 2
Here is the key to making this a good movie. When you watch it, just have fun. Don't think about what is happening or why it is happening. Just let it happen. Then, by all means, do NOT think about the plot of this movie after you leave the theater. If you start to poke at it at all the entire story comes crashing down. So, enjoy the pretty house of cards and don't breathe near it. Now, for those of you that actually like to think about the films you see, you are much better off...

Unfriended: Dark Web
I feel dumber for having witnessed this useless piece of trash. The first film in this franchise had a bunch of young people screaming and crying in a chat room for 90 minutes. So does this one. There are few things more annoying than watching people yell at each other in a chat room. The one thing that I will give this movie over the previous one is that it has a fairly decent twist. However, by the time it got to the twist I was so over the movie I just wanted everyone in the film...

Sorry To Bother You
I tried so hard to like this movie. There is something about it that is great. Unfortunately, it plays out in an amateurish way and loses the essence of everything that is great about it. This movie would do well to have a person standing at the exit door saying "Sorry you had to watch that," as you leave. There are way too many useless moments throughout the film. I'm sure they were a lot of fun to shoot, but this film needed a better editor to make sure those moments didn't make the final cut. All...

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
The third installment of this franchise does a good job of progressing the overall story. It has some fun and funny moments with a lot of physical comedy thrown in for good measure. The downside to this film is that, once again, too much of the film was revealed in the trailers, so the twist is just another plot point by the time you see the full movie. It is also pretty intense over the last 20 minutes or so. My six year old is probably a bit too sensitive, but she was really scared during the...
