Nobody's Fool
Thank goodness for Tiffany Haddish. Without her this movie would have been almost completely unwatchable. Fortunately, she is funny and brings some life to an otherwise DOA flick. Tyler Perry is up to his old tricks again. The kind of tricks where he slaps a script together that is formulaic and the characters never learn anything, shoots the whole thing for less than $20 million, shoots it in less than six weeks and doesn't worry about things like reshoots or continuity errors, then he sits back and watches $65-70 Million roll in. Tika Sumpter...

Bohemian Rhapsody
If you are a fan of Queen this is a must-see film. It is a fascinating peek behind the curtains into the lives of one of the biggest bands of all time, and in particular their eccentric and commanding lead singer Freddie Mercury. Obviously, the music is one of the biggest stars of the film. It is interesting to see the thought and work that went into creating some of the most played anthems in the last 50 years. Add to that an award-worthy performance by Rami Malek and the recipe is there for an outstanding...

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
This movie is a beautiful and fanciful delight from beginning to end. It is filled with spectacular imagery, enchanting characters, and exciting adventure.The scenery is gorgeous, the music will bring you back to your childhood, and the story, while simple enough for a child to understand, is compelling and intriguing for adults, too. Mackenzie Foy fills the lead role like the pro that she is. She does a wonderful job using emotion and determination to drive her character arc. For the most part, her supporting cast members are great as well. There are a couple of notable...

Johnny English Strikes Again
This is the kind of film that you know exactly what you are getting when you go in. The good news is that this movie delivers on that promise. Is it a great work of cinematic art? No, but that isn't the point. This is a fun, entertaining, goofy, laugh-out-loud comedy that also has a pretty decent plot. The acting isn't outstanding, but they are really only there to push the plot forward and give us a few good laughs along the way. And they all do a fine job of that. If...

Hunter Killer
It's been a long time since a great submarine movie has come along. CRIMSON TIDE was almost 25 years ago, and THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER came out in 1990. While HUNTER KILLER isn't quite in the same league as those other films, it is close. The action and suspense start immediately and they don't let up for the full two hours. There were several moments where I was holding my breath as the scenes unfolded. The only downside to this film is that it gets a little far-fetched near the end, and...

Mid90's
Jonah Hill's directorial debut isn't a masterpiece, but it is a fun, nostalgic glimpse back at the time right before cell phones and the internet took over our lives. If you were a kid or a teen during the mid 1990's this movie will speak to your heart...especially if you were a skateboarder and/or you grew up in Southern California. Most of the cast is made up of unknown actors that do an outstanding job. Sunny Suljic has been in several films before, but this has the potential to be his breakout role. His joy is evident...

The Sisters Brothers
This is one of those, "Oh, what could have been?" movies. It's got an incredible cast and a fantastic plot. Unfortunately, the writing and directing ruined the whole thing. And that isn't an easy thing to do when you are working with the likes of Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, and Jake Gyllenhaal. First, the pacing is all off. This should be a fast-paced, horses-running chase through the old west. Instead, in most of the scenes someone is too injured or too drunk to do anything but let the horses stroll along while they try not to...

Free Solo
There are two things you need to know about this documentary before you read any further: 1. Do not see this movie if you have a fear of heights. You'll probably fall out of your chair and hurt yourself. 2. If you aren't afraid of heights, see this film on the biggest screen you can find. It will give you a scale that will probably trigger a fear of heights you didn't know you had until this very moment. Moving on... This is easily one of...

The Oath
Why on earth would anyone want to watch a bunch of people yell at each other about politics for nearly two hours? If that is your jam, then by all means enjoy sitting in the theater all alone for this heap of trash. I was especially disappointed because Ike Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish are two of the best comedic actors in Hollywood right now. Unfortunately, Ike wrote and directed this like he was really trying to win a political debate with his brother rather than making something that could at least be mistaken for comedy. Tiffany Haddish...

Halloween 2018
It's been 40 years since the iconic horror flick that began this franchise hit theaters. A lot has changed in 40 years. But there are some things that have stayed the same. This film offers something new and exciting to the franchise, but it isn't up to par with the rest of the horror genre. I was hoping that we would get a smarter, more empowering HALLOWEEN rather than just another slasher flick. What I saw was a fun slasher flick that should have been titled HALLOWEEN: A SERIES OF STUPID CHOICES. ...

The Old Man And The Gun
This is one of those films that is way better in the mind than it is in reality. Who wouldn't want to see a movie about an elderly gentleman escaping from San Quentin, robbing banks all over the place with a smile, baffling police everywhere, and charming the general public? It sounds great...on paper. The harsh reality is, a guy that acts like a complete gentleman, even when he is robbing a bank is really endearing the first time. After that, it gets really boring. There is no action, no excitement. And nothing against senior citizens, but...

The Hate U Give
This was one of the biggest and most powerful books in the Young Adult genre in 2017. It came at a time and covered issues that were, and still are, some of the most important and passionate of the day. Now, 20 months later, it is a powerful and moving film that hits hard on those same issues. Amandla Stenberg and Russell Hornsby give performances that will shake you to your core. They portray the feelings of hurt, loss, and desperation in beautiful yet painful ways. Their characters are also complex. Nobody is perfect, everyone has...

First Man
Every once in a while I will walk into a theater expecting one thing and end up seeing something completely different. FIRST MAN was one of those experiences. I thought it was going to be a spaceship movie filled with exciting scenes of fire, and explosions, and high tension. Instead I was treated to a very personal, emotional, and moving film that carried its power in an unexpected way. That is not to say that there aren't some amazing action scenes in this movie. There are several scenes that will have you gripping the armrests and holding...

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween
Jack Black is starting to make a name for himself starring in pre-teen horror flicks. He made the first GOOSEBUMPS movie amazing and fun. Unfortunately, he is in this movie for a grand total of about 5 minutes.So, without the main ingredient of awesomeness, this film falls pretty flat. It does have some fun moments, a few scenes that are as close to terrifying as you can get in a PG-rated movie, and a couple of scenes that will be funny for adults. The film flows along at a good pace and the story is mostly interesting....

Bad Times At The El Royale
If you are a fan of movies like THE HATEFUL EIGHT or FREE FIRE you should run as fast as you can to the theater to see this movie. It is tense and filled with mystery and suspense almost from the first minute. The whole movie feels like you are pulling a rubber band tighter and tighter just waiting for it to snap. And when it does finally snap...wow...what a ride! It is brutal, unnerving, strong, and blunt. By the time it is over you'll be relieved because you need the break. The acting...
