Skyscraper
This is an action flick in every sense of the term. It is jam-packed with action, but the rest of the movie is filled with ridiculous dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and huge plot holes and moments of convenience. The acting is passable at best, and in some cases it is downright terrible, the effects look and feel pretty low-budget, but the action and suspense carry this movie all the way through to it's triumphant end. If you are in the mood for a no-brainer popcorn flick that will have you holding your breath with suspense...

Ant-Man and the Wasp
I am dealing with a bevy of emotions as I am writing this review. On the one hand, this is a fantastically fun movie that will have you laughing throughout. It is exciting. It is full of action and incredible CGI work. On the other hand, I really think that I am starting to get Marvel Fatigue. Yes, this film is all of those great things, but so is almost every other Marvel movie. I need something different, something new. And I'm not talking about a new character on a new quest, I mean a shift...

The First Purge
There is an old saying, "what goes up must come down." Sure, it's a gravity-based proverb, but it also applies to the PURGE franchise. This is the fourth film in the franchise, but it is the first in the timeline. It's the origin story of the Purge. And it is almost great. The first film was terrible. It was nothing more than a basic slasher flick. The second one had a very interesting twist that made it much more believable and relevant. The third film was downright amazing with its...

Uncle Drew
When I saw the trailer for this film it made me hate most of my life choices leading me to see it. But, as with all films, I go in with an open mind hoping that it will be the best movie of the year. While UNCLE DREW is far from great, it is a lot of fun and will make for a good night out with your friends. It is formulaic and predictable, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing with this movie. It's a sports comedy that doesn't try to be anything else. It does...

Sicario: Day Of The Soldado
I will give this to the SICARIO franchise, they know how to set a dark mood. Just like the first film, DAY OF THE SOLDADO has exactly zero happy moments. It is filled with despair, horrible people, and decisions that have to be made that have no positive outcome. One of the things that gives this movie some power is the methodical, mechanical way the characters go about doing their jobs. There is very little emotion, and when emotion is interjected it is quickly dispatched. Because of this there are many times where the film feels slow....

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
I can still remember 25 years ago, sitting in the theater, staring at the screen in awe, and watching what looked to be real dinosaurs walking with humans. I remember how fun and terrifying JURASSIC PARK was. I also remember how smart it was. It made us have to think about the consequences of our actions, and how even the most noble missions can have unintended and disastrous consequences. Now, it's 25 years and 5 movies later and I'm still watching the same story. Sure, the dinosaurs look even more realistic now, but other than that the...

Incredibles 2
It's been 14 long years since we were blessed with the awesomeness of the Parr family and their superhero alter-egos. It was worth the wait. INCREDIBLES 2 is fantastic. I took my 8 year old daughter to the early screening of this film. She is a much tougher critic than I am and she loved it. She even told me she wants to see it again. I don't think she has ever asked to see a movie a second time. I mean, this is the girl who didn't like FROZEN! (I told you she's tough). ...

This may be the sleeper hit of the summer. I was hoping it would be funny and exciting, but I got so much more than I expected. This is a spectacular film that runs the gamut of emotions. It is fun and funny. You will be fully entertained and laughing hard throughout the whole film. The pacing is perfect. It never feels like it is dragging or skipping over things. The acting is well done, and the chemistry the leads have is some of the best I've ever seen on screen. The best part...

Superfly
I'm sure it was no accident that this film was released on the 35th anniversary of the release of SCARFACE. It's obvious the director was hoping to make a SCARFACE for a new generation. So, if you want to know what this movie is all about, just imagine SCARFACE. Now imagine SCARFACE being a terrible flick with some really bad acting, embarrassingly bad dialogue, and a ridiculous plot with one-dimensional bad guys. Now you have SUPERFLY. The good news is that if you see this poor attempt at a drug lord movie, you'll get...

Won't You Be My Neighbor
If you grew up watching Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood this is a must-see documentary. It will bring back a flood of memories and give you new insight into the show and the man that was a true friend to millions of children. It is a beautiful, powerful, and emotional film that will have you laughing until your jaw hurts and crying until the tears are all gone. In a time in our world where so many devices are begging for our attention and people are so easily divided over issues and politics, the simplicity and...

Ocean's 8
One of the main things that has made the OCEAN'S franchise great to this point is that all of the characters bring something unique to the story. Even if they are only on screen for a few minutes, they make a mark and they make you care about them. Unfortunately, that dynamic did not translate to this film. While the acting is great and the story is a lot of fun, the characters seem to fall flat. With the exception of Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter, I never felt any connection to the other characters. ...

Hereditary
This is, straight up, the creepiest movie I have ever seen. As I watched it the hair on my arms and neck stood up. I felt chills several times. Basically, I was completely freaked out. While this is a horror film, it isn't a scary movie per se. Yes, you will jump a couple of times, but that is the extent of the scares. This is much more along the lines of the true horror genre. It makes you think one thing and then it takes your brain, squeezes it in a vice, then gives it back...

Hotel Artemis
Every story has already been told. We've heard that so many times it has become cliche. And while it may be true on a basic story-telling level, it doesn't give people the authority to write stories in worlds created by other people. Imagine if someone wrote a story about sisters and one had the ability to freeze things, or a bunch of magical kids all go to school together near London. We would be yelling at the screen saying, "you stole that idea!" HOTEL ARTEMIS is about as close as you can get to...

First Reformed
FIRST REFORMED clocks in at about 110 minutes. For the first 80 minutes I was intrigued, I was entertained, and I was ready for a fascinating finale. Then the last 30 minutes happened and I still have no clue what the heck happened to this film. It was compelling and emotional and then it went so far off the rails that it was impossible for me to go with it. One of the things I really liked about this film is that it deals with the issue of the destruction of our planet via human pollution in...

Action Point
When I went to see this movie I was totally in the mood for stupid humor and wild antics. I walked out 90-something minutes later completely disappointed. This film is so bland, boring, and lame I could have taken my grandma to see it and she would have thought it was somewhat adorable. I want a Johnny Knoxville flick to give her a heart attack, not make her want to pinch his cute little cheeks. First of all, there are very few "Jackass" style moments in this movie. Maybe six or seven good ones. And of those,...
