Red Sparrow
I wish I could convey to you my incredible amount of boredom I endured while watching the first 115 minutes of this movie. But to do so might be considered torture. Let's just leave it that I was clock watching inside the first 20 minutes, meaning I had more than two hours to go before the end credits mercifully rolled. This film is slow, emotionless, depressing, and forgettable. The acting is decent at best, but there are a few moments that are cringe worthy. Thankfully there is a pretty nice twist at the end that makes the...

Every Day
If you like Young Adult contemporaries with a dash of paranormal this is the movie for you. It will give you all you can handle as it relates to first love, heart break, and teen issues. The story is interesting an unique, and while it isn't a film that will have you on the edge of your seat it does keep you interested. The cast does a good job, and kudos to the director for making sure that all of the characters that played A, (the name of the character that is always...

Game Night
I'm not going to play any games here. This movie is a blast. It is a perfect date night movie. It will make you laugh until your jaw hurts, it has some tender moments, and it even has a couple of jump scares so you can cuddle. What makes this movie so great is that you never really know what is fake and what is real until the very end. It's suspenseful with a compelling plot, it moves along at a nice pace, and you always feel like you are just about to figure things out when...

Annihilation
If you are a fan of the slow, cerebral style of Sci-Fi films then this one is made for you. It takes a long time to get to the really interesting stuff, but there is enough going on in the first 90 minutes to keep your attention. I do feel though that I could have walked into this movie with about 30 minutes to go and understood it and enjoyed it just about the same. This movie gets its groove in the last 15 or 20 minutes and from there on it is a wild ride to...

Black Panther
Move over every comic book movie ever made (except AVENGERS), because BLACK PANTHER is here and it is amazing! The story is exciting from beginning to end, the pacing is perfect, the acting is outstanding, and the effects are out of this world. Michael B. Jordan plays a perfect villain. His character and his motivation are 100% believable and legitimate. For half of the movie I was kind of on his side. It's so nice to see a film with depth to the antagonist rather than a bad guy that wants to destroy the whole world because...

Early Man
If you are a fan of WALLACE AND GROMIT or CHICKEN RUN there is a really good chance you will like this movie. If you find those films to be boring, then go ahead and skip this one, too. This film has moments of fun and comedy, but for the most part it is very formulaic. I spent half of the movie guessing the next line of dialogue and I was almost always correct. That said, it isn't a terrible movie, it's just predictable. For those of you that are fans of English soccer,...

Samson
I don't envy the people that try to make theses movies. They are trying to take R-rated stories from the bible and turn them into something that a Christian wants to see. However, in doing that, the stories lose a lot of their suspense and intensity. This film falls into that trap. Overall it's a pretty yawn-inducing film with devastatingly bad graphics, weird green screen shots, comical slow motion fight scenes, and a seductress that wears more clothes than just about every other woman in the movie. Throw in sub-par acting and some cringe-worthy dialogue and this...

The 15:17 To Paris
First of all let me acknowledge the fact that these men are true heroes. They deserve all of the accolades, awards, and praise that has been given to them. I would be humbled even to be in their presence. Their actions that day saved many lives. They also deserve a film that is way better than this one. These guys are heroes, not actors. And this is a character-driven film. So, to have the real heroes have to play themselves in the movie is a huge disservice to them. They could have easily played supporting roles...

Peter Rabbit
This is a fun, if not formulaic, film that will entertain children and keep adults from being bored. It is bright and fanciful and at the same time it is filled with fun and excitement. The physical comedy is reminiscent of films like HOME ALONE or BABY'S DAY OUT. I watched this in a theater full of kids and they were laughing out loud the whole movie. Rose Byrne and Domhnall Gleeson have wonderful chemistry throughout the movie. Both of them do wonderful work acting opposite CGI rabbits. They make it look real. Gleeson also shows in...

Fifty Shades Freed
They should have named this movie FIFTY SHADES OF RED because everyone associated with it should be dreadfully embarrassed with the final product. The story is useless, the acting it stilted, and the chemistry and the plot are non-existent. When I say the plot is non-existent, I mean that for the first hour and fifteen minutes of this travesty there is almost ZERO plot. It's essentially 75 minutes of sex, music montages, and sex over music montages. Oh, and a 45 mile per hour car chase. I will say that with about 20 minutes...

Winchester
Helen Mirren could read the names in a school year book while sitting on a box in an empty room and I'd pay to see it. She is fantastic in just about everything she does. WINCHESTER is no exception. How they landed her for this role I will never know, but I'm glad they did, because without her this film would have been almost unwatchable. She adds a much-needed level of suspense and desperation to the story that allows the viewer to actually believe that the happenings could very well be real. Whether or not you believe...

Maze Runner: The Death Cure
If you are a fan of the MAZE RUNNER franchise, this is a great ending to the trilogy. The films have gotten better as the series has progressed. This third, and final, installment is full of suspense, intrigue, and edge-of-your-seat action. It gives us some long-awaited answers, and a satisfying ending. It also gives us some nice moments with characters we've grown to love over the course of the series. As with the other films, the acting isn't great, the dialogue is pretty basic, and there are a few plot holes that will...

Hostiles
It's not very often a Western hits the theaters. It's even more rare for that Western to be outstanding. HOSTILES checks off both boxes. It is a film that will rock you to your core. The acting is some of the best you will see all year. Never once was I pulled out of the story by a misstep by the cast. Each character was fascinating in their own way. The story is powerful and compelling, and even though the movie is over two hours long I never felt like it was dragging....

12 Strong
If you don't know the story behind the first soldiers into Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks it is truly incredible. They were up against insurmountable odds, dealing with people they couldn't fully trust, and were on a timeline that was all but impossible to meet. But they are U.S. soldiers, so they did it. This film does a good job or telling their story. Not great, but good. It helps you to feel their frustrations and concerns while fighting a battle like they had never fought before. The downside to the movie is...

Forever My Girl
This is one of those smarmy, Hallmark channel-style flicks that gives you exactly what you are looking for in a smarmy, Hallmark Channel-style flick. It is formulaic in every way, and makes you laugh, cry, get angry, and swoon in all of the right places. The downside of this film are all of the "oh, come on" moments. They start with the fact that they live in a small Louisiana town outside of New Orleans and apparently only 2 black people live in the whole town. Then they kill off one of the two!!!!!!!!! Next, it's southern...
