Holmes and Watson
I would like to sarcastically thank the powers that be behind this film for releasing it so late in the year that I now have the extra work of going back and revamping my Worst 10 Films of 2018 list. You couldn't have waited one more week? Ugh. Ladies and gentlemen, this movie is a tragedy. It is amazingly unfunny, pathetically childish, boring, annoying, and a complete waste of everyone's time. In fact, it is so bad, I felt like I needed to do a public service, so during the movie I went...

Vice
This is one of the more interesting and entertaining films I saw in all of 2018. The editing, the cinematography, and the visuals are all completely immersive and exciting. The acting is well above average, to the point of several award-worthy performances. In particular, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Steve Carell make the movie much better than it would have been with lesser actors. There is one major issue that I have with this film though. It is a movie I never wanted to see. Nor do I ever want to see it again. ...

Aquaman
Congratulations DC you managed to mess up another film that could have been amazing. Your track record is almost entirely unblemished in that effort. (Wonder Woman being the exception). Basically, this movie stinks like a fish. I will never understand how an office full of movie people can manage to make an entire movie that promises a massive climax, it gets marketed that way in every commercial and trailer, and then the film doesn't deliver the promise. Sorry for the spoiler, but there is no war between the land and sea. I think it...

Bumblebee
As far as Transformer movies go, this one is pretty good. But you must remember, that is compared to other Transformer movies...and that is a VERY low bar. The good news is this movie actually offers some character depth, relationships, and emotions. Usually it just a bunch of explosions with the semi-truck running around yelling, "I am Optimus Prime!" For those of you that like the explosions, there are plenty. But for those of you that actually like a plot, you'll be pleasantly surprised. This is still a movie that you can't use...

Second Act
There isn't a lot to say about this movie good or bad. It is exactly what you would expect it to be. You may not know the exact plot points, but it follows the formula completely. It is the kind of movie that women between 30ish and up are going to enjoy. It is full of laugh out loud moments, ugly cry moments, make you mad moments, and girl power moments. Jennifer Lopez plays her character well and is surrounded by great comedic actors that keep the pace moving forward. There are a...

Welcome To Marwen
This story has so much potential. It is a fascinating and powerful true story, unfortunately the film does a horrible job of making it come to life in a way that isn't awkward and just plain weird. The worst part of this film is that it actually gets really good for the last 15 minutes. Unfortunately, there are 90 minutes of a really bad movie before you get there. It's not worth the wait. Steve Carell does a good job with the roles he plays. He's proven that he can be a...

Mary Poppins Returns
I am one of those people that believes that the original MARY POPPINS is not only one of the best films of all time, but it is iconic. It is so far above almost every other film ever made, so close to perfection that it would be nothing but folly and disaster to attempt to make a sequel or remake it for modern audiences. Needless to say, I was quite concerned when I heard they were making a sequel. It was going to take more than a spoonful of sugar for me to swallow this idea....

The Mule
This has been rumored to be Clint Eastwood's final film. If that is the case, it is a wonderful, artistic, piece of cinema that is worthy of his long legacy. This isn't the kind of film that is overly exciting or thrilling, but it is an interesting story about family and generational differences. Overall, it is a well done film that completes everything it sets out to accomplish. The only downside to the movie is that it has one massive plot hole that should have been addressed early on in the making...

Mortal Engines
This is one of the most visually stunning films of 2018. The visual effects are incredible, the world-building is superb, and the mobile cities are amazing. And while the story is good it isn't as great as the visuals. The film clocks in at just over 2 hours, but there is so much going on that it feels like there are some elements that got left out of the story that should be there. That isn't to say that the story isn't any good. It is entertaining and suspenseful all the way through. The stakes are high...

Mary Queen Of Scots
This film has several outstanding elements. First, the costumes are fantastically elegant and stunningly beautiful. Second, the hair and makeup are mesmerizing. Next, the score is one that I could listen to on repeat for a week and I wouldn't tire of it. Finally, Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie are fierce. They play off of each other and against each other with a power that radiates from the screen. It is probably the front runner for the costume awards, and may be as well for hair and makeup. There is a very good chance that Ronan will...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Since the early 2000's we have had six different SPIDER-MAN films roll through the theaters. Some were great, others were...not great. Now comes along a comic-book looking Spider-Man flick with the main character being played not by Peter Parker, but a teen boy. And there is also a Spider-Pig (Spider-Ham to be precise...and he was created 20 years before the Simpson's Spider-Pig scene). Of the seven films, this one is without a doubt the best of the bunch. It is a fantastic film that hits every single note all the way through. There was not a...

The Favourite
If you are thinking that this looks like another stuffy, pompous, boring British period piece, you will need to go ahead and wipe that thought out of your head and get yourself ready for an insane ride. This film is nothing short of fantastic and will have a great chance at winning several awards. This is not only one of the funniest films of the year, but it is also terribly, disturbingly dark. One minute you will be laughing so hard that it hurts, the next you will be cringing at how evil the players can be...

The Possession Of Hannah Grace
This is the time of year when all of the heavy hitters hit the theaters all vying for the top awards in cinematic excellence. It is also the time of year where studios like to drop off some of their terrible flicks in the hopes that the movie you really want to see is sold out, so you end up settling on something you never would have gone to the theater to see. This film will be up for exactly zero awards. There is almost nothing scary about this film. There are a couple...

Ralph Breaks The Internet
If you liked the first WRECK IT RALPH film this one is a must-see. All of your favorite characters are back, and several more are added to the fun. I was slightly worried for the first 15 to 20 minutes of the movie, because it starts pretty slow. But after that it turns into a fast-paced, funny, and entertaining ride all the way to the finish. The best part of the movie is when Vanellope meets all of the Disney princesses. Their scenes are epic! Try your best to read all of their T-shirts,...

Creed II
ROCKY IV came out in 1985. 33 years later ROCKY IV was re-released under the name CREED II. It's the same story, the same characters, the same boxing match, and slightly different story lines. Ho-hum. Is it a good movie? It has its moments, but it is also a forgettable film. There was nothing great about it that will stick with you long after you see it. It's just another chapter in the ROCKY world. If you are invested in the franchise, you might as well see it, but it's not going to be at the top...
