Overboard
This is a pleasantly funny film that will make for a fun night out. It's not the kind of movie that is going to rock your world. It's not as good as the original. But it has enough in it to make it enjoyable. The acting isn't great, but the characters are fun. Eugenio Derbez makes a great lovable bad guy turned good. Anna Farris is a lovable good girl turned bad. The rest of the cast does a fine job moving the story forward without any cringe worthy moments. For those of you...

Avengers: Infinity War
Dear reader, I need you to see this movie. I need you to see it now. And then, we need to talk. We. Need. To. Talk. Walking out of the theater I wanted to simultaneously high-five all of the Marvel employees and punch them straight in their stupid faces. It's a comic book movie! I'm not supposed to have this many feels! This movie is massive, it's fast-paced, it's non-stop, it's hilarious, it's insanely busy, and it's fun. It is also heart-wrenching, heart-breaking, dark, and powerful. But, best...

I Feel Pretty
Here's the good news. Amy Schumer finally plays a different character in a movie. It's also a decently funny film with some heartwarming moments. The bad news is that this movie is totally formulaic from beginning to end, it is 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, and there are plot holes everywhere. This isn't a bad movie at all, it's just plain and forgettable. The message is nice and empowering, but it could have been delivered in a much more entertaining and compelling way. If you are wanting a...

Super Troopers 2
A stoner movie released on 4/20? Shocker. If you saw the first SUPER TROOPERS movie then you've already seen this one. The only difference is that this one has a lot more Canadian jokes than the original. Basically, just think "stupid jokes, but now with 33% more Canada." If you didn't see the first SUPER TROOPERS film, consider yourself lucky and stay far away from this one. This is the kind of film where you will feel dumber for having seen it. It does have a few laughs, but the plot...

Traffik
This is one of those "could have been" movies. The premise is intriguing, the story is compelling, but the execution is so bad that it is nearly cringe-worthy. There are so many plot holes in this film that even the most casual of movie-goers will notice how this movie just keeps trying to push forward by people spouting out information that they should have no way of knowing. It feels like the decision makers on this film just said, "we need to get from point A to point B, so let's just have several characters deliver...

Truth Or Dare
Movie: Truth or dare? Me: Truth. Movie: What do you think of me? Me: You totally suck. There were ZERO scares during the entire movie and you are supposed to be a horror film. Shoot, you barely even made an attempt to do jump scares. Movie: Ouch. Me: The truth hurts. Okay, your turn. Truth or dare? Movie: Truth. Me: Did you really think you could follow a horror movie like A QUIET PLACE? Movie: No,...

Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero
This is an interesting film. On one hand I loved it and would highly recommend it. On the other, it's a film that covers a lot of dark subject matter that may not be appropriate for your children. I took my 6 and 8 year old daughters. It was too much for the 6 year old. She loved the dog and the fun moments, but there were some images and events that she did not want to see. She spent a good portion of the movie covering her eyes or her ears. The 8 year old was...

Beirut
I'm not really sure why this movie was made. It's a good movie. It's interesting. But it just feels like a film that has no audience. It would have made a little more sense if this was based on a true story or based in the current day Middle East, but it's a fictional story based in the 1970s and 1980s. I will be shocked if this makes more that $5 Million total. Audience aside, the acting is outstanding and the story is compelling. It has pacing issues, character issues, and a couple of...

Isle of Dogs
If you are a Wes Anderson fan you are going to love this movie. It is one of his top works. If you can't stand films like THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, FANTASTIC MR. FOX, or MOONRISE KINGDOM then stay far away from this one. Wes Anderson films are quirky and have an acquired taste. They are works of art more than they are films. It's like walking into an art gallery and having the paintings start telling a story. If you can handle the quirkiness, this movie is uniquely animated, funny, heartwarming, and compelling....

Chappaquiddick
As evidenced by the theater where I saw this film and from reports of other friends that have seen this movie, this is a very popular film among the 60+ age group. Each showing has been a nearly packed house. What is interesting is that this is a story that, for some reason, does not resonate with people too young to remember this event. Personally, I knew about it, but I was born years after it happened, so by then it was an old story, swept under Washington's rug. Now that we are almost 50 years...

A Quiet Place
This is the horror/monster movie I have always wanted to see, and finally it exists! I am so happy that someone made a smart, intense, suspenseful film that will scare the ever-loving snot out of you. From the opening scene to the end credits the stakes are high, the characters are real and likable, and the pressure is insurmountable. And even without talking the movie is able to give us all of the important information we need to understand all that is happening. The only bad thing about this movie is that it is...

Blockers
BLOCKERS, (because nobody is allowed to say or print the real, full title of this movie for fear of getting in trouble from the censors), is a fun, funny film that has some heartwarming moments, and some of the most cringe-worthy scenes you will ever witness on the big screen. It is a coming-of-age story for the kids in the film, but it is also a coming-of-age story for their parents as well. We see the kids start to realize that actions have consequences, while the parents begin to understand that their children need to have room...

The Miracle Season
This is a well-written, emotional story that the whole family can enjoy. It's not a great film by any stretch of the imagination, but it gets the point across in a meaningful way. It feels a lot like a high-quality made-for-TV movie rather than a big screen film, but the story makes up for the lack of quality. The acting is pretty basic, even from the bigger stars in the film. There are several moments where cameos were given to people that aren't actors and it shows. However, the volleyball that is played in...

Ready Player One
This is one of the most fascinating and unique films I have seen in the past several years. The plot is captivating, the world is interesting, and the visuals are second to none. But the best part of this movie is that this is the kind of thing that could actually happen in real life. While the acting isn't outstanding, the characters are still very real and you care about them and their quest. Whether they are the "real life" characters or the avatars there is an emotional connection that will have you rooting for the little...
