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....

Midnight Sun
If you are in the mood to ugly cry this is the movie for you. And when I say ugly cry, I mean like snot-dangling-from-your-nose crying. This film will wreck you. It is also a film that will make you laugh, make you fall in love with the feelings of first love, and make you feel like an awkward teenager all over again. Bella Thorne does a great job in her role, but the real surprise in the film is Rob Riggle. We all know him as a fun, comedic actor, but this movie...

Tomb Raider
I really wanted to like this movie. I've been excited for it's release for several months. After seeing it, I was underwhelmed, but it is still a pretty decent popcorn flick. It's got some good action, some fun puzzles, and an interesting mystery with high stakes. The down side is that it just isn't a good script. The dialogue isn't great, the characters are flat (except Lara who has a nice character arc unlike the Angelina Jolie Lara Croft character), and the pacing is all over the place. I think the director knew he...

Love, Simon
If John Hughes were still alive he would have written and directed this movie. If he did that, it would have been exactly like it is now. This is a fantastic, emotional film that hits every note from beginning to end. It is a beautifully acted film with a couple of the secondary characters stealing the show. (Note to the producers of this movie...please make a film out of the life of Ms. Albright. The world needs that. Thank you). The main characters feel so real and legitimate, and the chemistry they have with one other is...

I Can Only Imagine
I've been on the radio for nearly 20 years. For the last 16 or 17 years I have played the song I CAN ONLY IMAGINE at least 1,000 times. I still love to listen to it. It is a song that transcends genre and religion. It is a song that defies logic in its power and longevity. It is a song that the world needed in 2001 and still needs today. The film adds a whole new layer to the song. It is the story of how the song came to...

7 Days In Entebbe
The film makers behind this mess of a movie must have missed the very first day of film school. The day here you learn that EVERY movie NEEDS a hero. If you don't have a hero you have a story that nobody cares about. The sad thing is that in the true story there is a man that would have made a perfect hero for this movie, but in the film he gets about three lines of dialogue and two minutes of screen time. Sure, the film has some moments of suspense, but it's only suspenseful because...

The Strangers: Prey At Night
There isn't much to say about this film. It's a straight up slasher flick. It's not smart, or deep, or intriguing. It's primal, it has moments that are ridiculous, and it has several moments of convenience. The good new is that it also has quite a few good scares. This is one of the few slasher flicks that doesn't rely on jump scares to make the movie work. It uses real drama and suspense to keep your heart racing. Unfortunately, it also relies on the characters doing some colossally stupid stuff in order for the plot to...

The Hurricane Heist
This could be the funniest film of the year. Unfortunately, it isn't supposed to be funny. The level of ridiculousness reached by this catastrophe of a movie is mind-boggling. I can't even begin to understand how any studios or movie executives thought that this could be a good idea. If this film loses only $20 Million it will be a miracle. There are so many scenes that are supposed to be suspenseful or dramatic, but that ended up being comical, that my jaw hurt from laughing so hard and so often. Throw...

A Wrinkle In Time
This movie has been getting a ton of bad reviews, but I think that is pretty unfair. I think that most of the reviews aren't taking into account that this movie is for a young audience. Like, 8 - 10 year olds. It's much more like FROZEN than it is THE NEVERENDING STORY. Sure it is simplistic and the quest is basic, but it isn't for a 3rd grader. This is the kind of movie that will rock their world. It is beautiful, fun, the story is compelling and entertaining, and the acting...

Gringo
I'm not really sure what genre this movie is supposed to be. It has comedic moments, it has action scenes, and it has dramatic moments, but none of them are done in a way that makes for a good movie. So basically, it's a mess. It is slow and supremely boring. I spent the last 45 minutes staring at my watch begging time to move faster. Edgerton and Theron are obnoxious to the point of being annoying. David Oyelowo does a good job in his role, but his character is so whiny that you just want to...

Death Wish
Good news! I wasn't wishing for death after seeing this movie. I'm not saying it is great by any stretch of the imagination, but it gives the audience exactly what you think a movie titled DEATH WISH would offer. Even though the film clocks on around 100 minutes it takes a long time to get going. We don't get to the stuff we came to see until the second half of the movie. By that point I was ready for anything to happen. If you are planning on seeing this movie just know...

Red Sparrow
I wish I could convey to you my incredible amount of boredom I endured while watching the first 115 minutes of this movie. But to do so might be considered torture. Let's just leave it that I was clock watching inside the first 20 minutes, meaning I had more than two hours to go before the end credits mercifully rolled. This film is slow, emotionless, depressing, and forgettable. The acting is decent at best, but there are a few moments that are cringe worthy. Thankfully there is a pretty nice twist at the end that makes the...
