The Current War
I've been excited about this movie for well over two years now. In fact, this film was marketed and scheduled for release near the end of 2017, but it was under a studio whose president got himself in a lot of trouble and eventually was kicked out of Hollywood. Finally, after two years, and I'm sure a lot of legal battles, we get to see this film. When you put the likes of Cumberbatch, Shannon, Holland, and Hoult in the same movie you know that the acting is going to be superb. And it is. I...

Countdown
Horror has had a difficult time moving into the 2010's. The genre has tried several times with movies like UNFRIENDED and ESCAPE ROOM to bring technology into the story line, but it has yet to be really successful. This movie may be the best so far in mixing today's technology with creepy horror. If you like going to horror flicks for all of the jumps and bumps, this movie is one of the best of the year. There are a ton of jump scares to keep you reaching for the hand of the person...

The Lighthouse
When it comes to films that fall into the horror genre, THE LIGHTHOUSE may be the most beautiful of them all. Shot fully in black and white, the images and cinematography are stunning. It feels and looks like you are watching a Hitchcock film in high definition. Everything pops off of the screen in incredible detail. Perhaps the most amazing thing about this film is that the sound is so well done, yet the whole film was recorded in mono. (Read: One track). The sound comes at you, relentlessly, from all sides, just like the sea around...

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
Angelina Jolie returns to her magnificently evil ways in another beautiful and suspenseful chapter of the misunderstood life of Maleficent. As with the first film, this one is filled with spectacular imagery, near-perfect effects, and gorgeous scenery. Last time MALEFICENT was nominated for a costume design Oscar. This time I think it stands a better chance of actually winning that award. The costumes are truly incredible. I've rarely been so taken in by the wardrobe choices as I was while watching this movie. As for the plot, this film isn't quite as good...

Zombieland: Double Tap
ZOMBIELAND is one of those flicks that, if I see it on TV while I'm searching for something to watch, I will stop and watch every single time. It is a cult classic bordering on legendary status. It has all of the markers of a long-living film: Compelling, funny, suspenseful, great dialogue, fantastic acting, and long-running gags. It is near-perfect and one-of-a-kind. And then they made another one. There were so many ways that this new venture could have gone wrong. They could have slapped it together knowing that most of us...

Gemini Man
Will Smith is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood history. Ang Lee is an Oscar-winning director. One would hope that a team like this would make an amazing film. They didn't. Yes, this movie does have some good suspense and an intriguing story line, but there is so much more about it that is below average. First, the effects are just plain terrible. It looks like they pulled out the CGI software from 2005 and decided to give it another shot. The young Will Smith never looks right, to the...

The Addams Family
Get ready to snap twice for one of the best animated movies of the year. THE ADDAMS FAMILY is fantastic. I took my 9 and 7 year old daughters and they both loved it. (Especially the 7 year old. Her favorite part was the song...which she now sings incessantly). The audience was filled with kids and their parents, and nobody seemed unhappy at the end. During the film there was a ton of laughter and excitement filling the room. The story itself is pretty basic and formulaic, but it is a movie made for...

Jexi
If you saw the trailer for this movie and said to yourself that it didn't look like this had much of a plot, go ahead and give yourself a thumbs up for being right. Here is how thin this movie is. The total running time (including end credits) is only 84 minutes, and there are no less than three musical montages, (read "filler"), in the film. It is truly disappointing that the likes of Adam Devine and Alexandra Shipp had to waste their incredible talents on a screenplay as terrible as this one. They did their best...

Joker
Welp. There is no need to go any further in the nomination process for best actor this year. The Academy might as well go ahead and mail the Oscar to Joaquin Phoenix's house. I'd bet the mortgage payment that there won't be a better acting performance this year. As for the movie. I loved it. And I hated it. This is, so far, my favorite film of the year. It is incredible and terrible in every way. I was completely taken in by the story, and yet so repulsed by...

Aquarela
If you've ever been knee-deep in the ocean you know what a powerful force water is. It gives life, and it is powerful enough to take life away. It forms mountains, and it is powerful enough to move them. Water is also beautiful. AQUARELA is essentially 90 minutes of starting at different bodies and forms of water. There is very little dialogue, it's almost completely a visual feast. If you think this sounds boring, you are probably right. If you think this sounds interesting, you are probably right. This film is...

Abominable
I love it when DreamWorks comes out with a new animated film because I know they are going to raise the bar once again. They did it with SHREK, they did it with HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, and they did it with TROLLS. And now they've done it again with ABOMINABLE. This film is fun and exciting. I was pulled into the story right from the start and stayed interested throughout the whole film. The kids I was with were even more enthralled than I was. They were leaning forward and bouncing on...

Judy
I must admit, I was not as smitten by this film as everyone around me was. Don't get me wrong, I found the movie to be very well done with incredible acting by Renee Zellweger, but for some reason it didn't quite hit me emotionally like it did others. The story is a tragedy in every way. From her manipulated life as a teen that led to her issues as an adult, to her loss of her money, children, and her dignity. It is a sad and hopeless tale. There are only slight glimpses of comedy...

Rambo Last Blood
Do you remember that scene in HOME ALONE where the kid is looking over a map of his house and plotting all of the traps he is going to set for the bad guys? And then we see little Kevin setting up the house of horrors? Well, imagine that movie all grown up and every trap that gets set is going to kill someone in a brutal and gory way. RAMBO LAST BLOOD, meet HOME ALONE. You two are going to get along great, you have a ton of stuff in common. Here's...

Ad Astra
When I saw that this movie had Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones and space pirates I couldn't wait for the day when it finally hit theaters. Now that I've seen it, I wish they had spent a little more time trying to make it better. On some levels I really enjoyed this movie. The cinematography, the lighting, the frightening feeling of being alone in space, and the music were all fantastic. I caught myself holding my breath several times during the last 30 minutes of the film. Unfortunately, the first 90 minutes...

Downton Abbey
If you are a fan of the DOWNTON ABBEY television show stop reading now and just head to the theater. There is nothing that I can say that would stop you from seeing this movie, nor would I want to stop you. Go, henceforth, and may joyous tidings be unto you. If you've never seen the show, but you are thinking about seeing the film, the good news is you won't be completely lost. Sure, there are a lot of inside things true fans will get that you won't, but you will understand who the characters are...
