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...

Every Day
If you like Young Adult contemporaries with a dash of paranormal this is the movie for you. It will give you all you can handle as it relates to first love, heart break, and teen issues. The story is interesting an unique, and while it isn't a film that will have you on the edge of your seat it does keep you interested. The cast does a good job, and kudos to the director for making sure that all of the characters that played A, (the name of the character that is always...

Game Night
I'm not going to play any games here. This movie is a blast. It is a perfect date night movie. It will make you laugh until your jaw hurts, it has some tender moments, and it even has a couple of jump scares so you can cuddle. What makes this movie so great is that you never really know what is fake and what is real until the very end. It's suspenseful with a compelling plot, it moves along at a nice pace, and you always feel like you are just about to figure things out when...

Annihilation
If you are a fan of the slow, cerebral style of Sci-Fi films then this one is made for you. It takes a long time to get to the really interesting stuff, but there is enough going on in the first 90 minutes to keep your attention. I do feel though that I could have walked into this movie with about 30 minutes to go and understood it and enjoyed it just about the same. This movie gets its groove in the last 15 or 20 minutes and from there on it is a wild ride to...

Black Panther
Move over every comic book movie ever made (except AVENGERS), because BLACK PANTHER is here and it is amazing! The story is exciting from beginning to end, the pacing is perfect, the acting is outstanding, and the effects are out of this world. Michael B. Jordan plays a perfect villain. His character and his motivation are 100% believable and legitimate. For half of the movie I was kind of on his side. It's so nice to see a film with depth to the antagonist rather than a bad guy that wants to destroy the whole world because...

Early Man
If you are a fan of WALLACE AND GROMIT or CHICKEN RUN there is a really good chance you will like this movie. If you find those films to be boring, then go ahead and skip this one, too. This film has moments of fun and comedy, but for the most part it is very formulaic. I spent half of the movie guessing the next line of dialogue and I was almost always correct. That said, it isn't a terrible movie, it's just predictable. For those of you that are fans of English soccer,...

Samson
I don't envy the people that try to make theses movies. They are trying to take R-rated stories from the bible and turn them into something that a Christian wants to see. However, in doing that, the stories lose a lot of their suspense and intensity. This film falls into that trap. Overall it's a pretty yawn-inducing film with devastatingly bad graphics, weird green screen shots, comical slow motion fight scenes, and a seductress that wears more clothes than just about every other woman in the movie. Throw in sub-par acting and some cringe-worthy dialogue and this...

The 15:17 To Paris
First of all let me acknowledge the fact that these men are true heroes. They deserve all of the accolades, awards, and praise that has been given to them. I would be humbled even to be in their presence. Their actions that day saved many lives. They also deserve a film that is way better than this one. These guys are heroes, not actors. And this is a character-driven film. So, to have the real heroes have to play themselves in the movie is a huge disservice to them. They could have easily played supporting roles...

Peter Rabbit
This is a fun, if not formulaic, film that will entertain children and keep adults from being bored. It is bright and fanciful and at the same time it is filled with fun and excitement. The physical comedy is reminiscent of films like HOME ALONE or BABY'S DAY OUT. I watched this in a theater full of kids and they were laughing out loud the whole movie. Rose Byrne and Domhnall Gleeson have wonderful chemistry throughout the movie. Both of them do wonderful work acting opposite CGI rabbits. They make it look real. Gleeson also shows in...
