Fantasy Island
When I first saw the trailer for this movie I was excited to see a reboot of one of the most nostalgic TV shows ever. Then I saw how it twisted the tale into a horror flick and I was even more excited. The great news is that, even as excited as I was to see this movie, I didn't walk out disappointed. Horror films rarely live up to the hype or to the excitement of the trailer. This one does. It's filled with fun moments, a compelling story, and several great twists. ...

Sonic The Hedgehog
If you are a child of the 80's and 90's then Sonic The Hedgehog is a major character in your upbringing. That said, there were a lot of feelings about this movie long before its release date. Especially when the first trailer came out and the entire world revolted at the look of Sonic, forcing the director to make a public statement saying Sonic would be changed to look more like the original Sonic before the theatrical release. They did, and he does. As for the film, it is fun. It's not some great, comedic masterpiece,...

The Photograph
What do you get when you put two amazing actors in the lead roles of a film with a terrible script? You get two incredible performances in a bad movie. There are a lot of people that should apologize to LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae for wasting their talent in a film like THE PHOTOGRAPH. First of all, the title isn't even right. It should have been called The Photographer, or Miss Mae, or The Letter, or a thousand other ideas that would have been more fitting. Second, this is...

Birds Of Prey
Just like Harley Quinn, this movie is a hot mess...but in a good way. Nay. In a great way. It is a film filled with crazy action, hilarious one-liners, fun music, and an interesting story. That said, the plot is a bit lacking. There are a couple of minor plot holes, moments of convenience, and events that are downright ridiculous, but sometimes, that is what makes a comic book flick work. As long s you are willing to suspend your disbelief, you will enjoy this film. Margot Robbie is so much fun in...

Gretel And Hansel
Most of us have heard the story of Hansel and Gretel. And now it gets a Hollywood treatment worthy of the terrifying essence of the tale. Sure, we would laugh about the witch getting the kids fat, and the way they outsmart her, but the reality is, the story is horrific. While this film isn't your typical horror flick, it is better than most. It's a slow burn that builds well, and leads us to an original and twisted end. The movie is significantly more creepy than is it scary. Yes, it has a few moments that...

The Rhythm Section
The number one rule of an action flick is that there should be a lot of action. This movie breaks that rule, and so many others. To say this movie is slow would be an understatement. A better description would be to say that this movie gives you an incredible opportunity to enjoy a 110 minute nap. I will say that it is not the fault of the actors that this flick is so bad. They all do a pretty good job in their roles. Unfortunately, the writing and directing are just...

The Gentlemen
The movie trailer lies! This is one of those films that looks like it is going to be action-packed, filled with witty dialogue, and teeming with effervescent chaos for 115 minutes, thanks to the trailer. Instead, the first 45 minutes are an utter snoozefest, and the last hour does little to snap you out of your slumber. I will never understand why writers and directors choose the "Unreliable Narrator" gimmick to lead you through the story. 95% of the movies that use it aren't any good. They fall flat, because half of the film...

The Turning
The first 15 minutes of this movie are dreadfully boring. And then, it gets worse from there. The next hour of this terrible cinematic experience is made up of about 45 minutes of the main character slowly walking towards the next jump scare. And then, it gets worse from there. Yes, it's true. This terrible, horrible, no good, lack-of-story, boring, mockery of the horror genre actually tries to do a u-turn and become this cerebral, artsy-fartsy, deep-thinker piece of cinema. Shockingly, (to no one), it...

Bad Boys For Life
It's been 25 years since bad boys Will Smith and Martin Lawrence gave a couple of fantastic performances in a movie that was almost ruined by director Michael Bay. It's been 17 years since Michael Bay messed up BAD BOYS 2. Now it is 2020, and we have a third installment in the franchise, and the great news is Michael Bay had nothing to do with this film except for one uncredited cameo! BAD BOYS FOR LIFE is easily the best of the three films in the BAD BOYS franchise. It's still not a fantastic film,...

Dolittle
Oh, Universal Studios, what have you done? Not even a month ago you gave us all hairballs and forced naps when you released CATS. Now we have to play guess-the-country-where-Dolittle-grew-up because his accent changes literally in every scene, and we have to try and remember who is who because you thought it was a great idea for Dolittle to have 10 talking animals go on the adventure with him. (Plus two kids). Alas, it seems as though this movie was doomed from the start. It was plagued with rewrites, re-shoots, redraws, and missed release dates. In fact,...

1917
Oh, my. What a film. This is one of the most exciting, riveting, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat movies to come out in several years. I haven't gripped the arm rests this tight since I saw THE WALK in 2015. (That was the movie about the guy that did a tightrope walk between the twin towers). I felt like I was holding my breath for nearly two hours. For 98% of the movie you are sure that the main characters are in mortal danger, and you feel it right along with them. ...

Like A Boss
If you are looking for a few good laughs, then who am I to try to stop you from seeing this movie? It will absolutely tickle your funny bone several times. There is no doubt that this is a comedy. Now, if you are wanting to go see a GOOD comedy, well, this is the wrong place to look. Yes, Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne have great chemistry, great comedic timing, and deliver a bunch of laughs, unfortunately, the script they had to use is just plain bad. I like to call these "find...

Underwater
I'm guessing the idea pitch for this movie went something like, "it's just like ALIEN, only under water." And someone actually bought that. If you like action, this will be a great movie for you. They don't even bother with pesky details like setting up the story, or character development. They just dump us right into the mess and hope that we will be able to figure things out over the course of the next 30 minutes. Unfortunately, I did figure it out, and I still didn't care if they lived or died. If...

Just Mercy
For the life of me I can not figure out why this movie is not getting a ton of award nominations. This is easily one of the best films of the year. (This had a limited release in December so it is eligible for the 2019 awards season). If it were up to me this would be nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor - Michael B. Jordan, and Best Supporting Actor - Jamie Foxx. This isn't a fast-paced film, it tells the story in a slow, but deliberate way. Every second of it is compelling and emotional....

The Grudge
We aren't even a full week into the new year, yet we already have a solid contender for a top 10 worst film of 2020. I don't remember the last time I was this bored while watching a horror flick. Sure, I've seen a ton of them that were really bad, but most of them have at least some entertainment value. This one is slow, barely suspenseful, and convoluted. Perhaps the most telling sign that this movie is terrible is that it is only 93 minutes long, but it could have easily had...
