Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Here's the good news. This episode of PIRATES is significantly better than the fourth movie in this series. The bad news? It's just okay. This film does give you lots of excitement and fun throughout. For that alone it is a movie worth seeing with a huge bucket of popcorn. The action scenes are exciting, the overarching story is interesting, and Captain Jack Sparrow is at his Sparrowiest. The downside is that we are introduced to the spawn of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan, which should be an exciting turn of events, but...

Baywatch
When I saw the Red Band trailer for this film I was convinced that this was going to be a raunchy, frat-boy, womanizing parody of the world's most watched television show in history. Thankfully, the trailer didn't do the film justice. The film is raunchy, but not nearly to the level that the trailer made it seem. It does have it's frat-boy moments, but the story is actually fairly entertaining and almost a decent mystery. As for the womanizing, well there is that, but it's about 30% objectification of women and 70% objectification...

The Lovers
This is a sad, terrible, depressing, boring, slow waste of time. There is nothing in this film that is redeeming, gratifying or even slightly pleasant. It also has one of the most untrue to real life moments I have ever seen in a movie. (If you are unlucky enough to see this, I'm talking about the scene where he is playing piano and the son walks out the door). The lead characters do a fine job of portraying a couple growing apart, but that is about the only positive thing I can say about this movie....

Alien: Covenant
If you are a Sci-Fi fan, you should absolutely see this movie in the theaters. It is exactly what you would want and expect out of a movie about humans coming into contact with superior beings that want to kill them. If you aren't a Sci-Fi fan, you might still enjoy this movie, but it will feel slow in several parts and jumpy in others. It takes a while for the action to get going, but once it does, buckle in because it is a non-stop rocket ride of action all the way to the end....

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
If you've seen the other films in this franchise you know what you are getting yourself into with this film. It's a fun, funny, kid-friendly flick that is totally worth your time and money if your kids are into the books. The new cast does a great job taking over where the last cast left off. (Although, I feel really old seeing Alicia Silverstone as a mom of a teenager). The only thing missing from this movie is Rowley. We only see him for a couple of minutes at the beginning of the film. ...

Everything, Everything
I never thought we'd see another movie that could capture the essence and the feeling of young love like THE FAULT IN OUR STARS did. I was wrong. EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING is every bit as wonderful, emotional, and full of all the feels as TFIOS. This is an extraordinary film that will have you laughing, crying, and falling in love. You'll be happy, sad, incredibly angry, and filled with joy. And all of that happens in about 100 minutes. The pacing is perfect, the direction and artistic...

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Director Guy Ritchie has managed to make King Arthur entertaining. I'm not saying he made a great film, but he did make one that is enjoyable to watch. It is filmed in the traditional Guy Ritchie way, which means there is nothing traditional about the way this movie is filmed. You'll see scenes being rewound, witty banter over dream scenes, and epic fight scenes with incredible slow-motion imagery. Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law both give excellent performances. In fact, Law is terrifying as the villain. The rest of the cast of characters fill out the story well. (NOTE: Be...

Snatched
Oh, look, it's Amy Schumer playing the exact same character she plays in every single acting gig she's ever done. I feel bad for Goldie Hawn getting wrapped up in this junk and having to deal with such a terrible script. The only reason this movie is even slightly watchable is Wanda Sykes. Without her this would have easily been one of the worst films of the year. Joan Cusack is also a refreshing change of pace from the incessant annoyance that is Amy Schumer. The main characters are obnoxious, self-centered, idiots that...

Norman
NORMAN is a slow burn. For the first 30 minutes I couldn't figure out what I was watching. The next hour was okay, but not as interesting as I wanted it to be. However, the last 30 minutes finish with quite a bang. Once everything comes together and the good and the bad collide head on it makes for a very interesting final act. Maybe it needs the full 90 minutes of setup for the ending to be so powerful, but I really think it could have been about 30 minutes shorter and accomplished the same thing....

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
My expectations were exceedingly high for this movie, and it met them! If you haven't seen the first GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, stop right now and go watch it. The rest of us will wait. Okay, now you understand what an incredibly awesome franchise this is. All other film companies should take notes while watching these two movies and title it, "How to make a great movie". This film is full of great banter, fun action, a compelling story, and great music. It's 2 1/2 hours long, but it feels shorter...

Sleight
This is an interesting film, but even after seeing it I'm not sure if I liked it or not. It is different than what the trailers make it out to be. It is much more of a straight-forward drama than a superhero/action flick. The acting is average with the exception of Storm Reid, the young girl that plays the younger sister Tina. She is brilliant. The story is interesting, but it is a slow burn. There are a couple of times where you feel like the main character is in danger, but for the most part...

The Circle
The premise of this film is fascinating and timely. As we move closer to a real world where every move we make is recorded in some form, this movie will make you think about the consequences of that. Yet, even with an A-list cast and a plot that could quickly become our reality, this film is slow to the point of being almost boring. Neither Tom Hanks nor Emma Watson bring anything to the script to make their characters or the story feel exciting. In fact, there are several moments where their acting is just plain bad....

How To Be A Latin Lover
Eugenio Derbez is a riot! This guy should get a lot more lead comedy roles than he does, because he has the ability to command a film. Adding Salma Hayek and Rob Lowe makes him shine even more. This film is fun and funny. It's full of hilarious visual gags and funny banter. However, most of the really funny stuff was used in the trailer. This could have been a special comedy, instead it is completely formulaic. It has its funny moments, heartwarming moments, and heartbreaking moments, but none of them are surprising...

Born In China
I'm a sucker for a good Disney flick, and when you throw in a baby panda, you had me at "awwwwww". These yearly DisneyNature films have all been outstanding. This on is no exception. The cinematography is incredible, the stories are well told, and it clocks in at an hour and 19 minutes. My only warning about this film is that it is Rated G, but there are "circle of life" moments where animal death is a part of the story. It is handles well and carefully, but if your child is...

Unforgettable
I can't remember the last time I was so annoyingly and brutally bored by a movie as I was while seeing this thing. I'm serious when I say every single scene was either boring or completely ridiculous. There wasn't a single moment in this film where I thought that maybe it was about to take a turn for the better. It just stayed in a relentless race to the depths of the land of suck. It seems quite obvious that none of the lead actors were excited about making this movie, because all of...
