Rings
THE RING may be one of the scariest movies of all time. If you even mention that film you can see people visibly shake the chills away. This third installment of the franchise has some truly terrifying moments, but I would't say that it lives up to the fright of the original. The movie feels pretty slow for the first hour, but the last 30 minutes kick in hard giving the audience non-stop thrills and chills for the last third of the film. There are some good jumps and bumps along the way, but don't expect...

The Space Between Us
I'm starting to feel bad for Britt Robertson. She is a wonderful actor that brings a lot to every role. Unfortunately, she may go down in history at the greatest actor to never get the opportunity to star in a good movie. This film had a lot of potential and a great cast, but, like living on Mars without a spacesuit, this one just didn't work out. The chemistry between Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson is terrible, and she looks about 10 years older than him making their relationship feel icky. This film is...

The Comedian
There seems to be a new trend in Hollywood of making films that don't have a target audience. This is at least the third film released just this year that falls into that category. It's an average film with an all-star cast, but it will only be in theaters for a few weeks because there is no group that is excited to see this movie. If it finishes higher than 7 or 8 in the top 10 this weekend I will be shocked. If I was a betting man I would put my money on it not even cracking the...

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
I'm sure that Director Paul Anderson is a nice guy with a wonderful family (Milla Jovovich is his wife and their daughter plays The Red Queen), but maybe they should think about coming up with another family hobby instead of making zombie movies together. This film is so ridiculously full of plot holes, sheer nonsense, moments of convenience, and utter stupidity that it isn't even worth a RedBox rental with a free coupon. The shaky camera trick covers up all of the action scenes, so you have no idea what is going...

A Dog's Purpose
NOTE: I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding this film right now. My review has nothing to do with that. I am simply reviewing the movie for what it is. I'll leave the controversy for people much more qualified than myself to address. As I sat through the screening for this film several thoughts went through my head. They were thoughts like: 1. I would NEVER take my young daughters to see this movie, it would take therapy for them to recover from the trauma. 2. Did the writers even...

Gold
You may have heard rumblings about Matthew McConaughey gaining nearly 50 pounds for one of his roles. This is the film. The way he transforms himself into a nearly-destitute, yet highly-motivated, sleazeball salesman is truly fascinating to watch. His performance was almost award-worthy, and in a year that didn't have so many incredible films released, he may have been up for several awards. This film is full of incredible twists and surprises that make it seem almost unbelievable. But then, when you remember that this is based on a true story, it is mind-blowing that anyone...

Split
When I first saw the trailer for this movie I was so excited. I love a well-done psychological thriller. Then I found out it was being released in January and the first red flag went up. Then I did some research and found out it was a M. Night Shyamalan directed film. That isn't necessarily a red flag, but his films are typically either great or horrible. I went into the screening cautiously optimistic. I came out of that screening completely excited about the movie I just saw...and the future. ...

XXX: Return of Xander Cage
This movie is stupid fun. Or, maybe it is: Stupid. Fun. Either way it is entirely stupid, but still a ton of fun. This is one of those films where you have to go into it with the mindset that there is no such thing as physics, or pain, or mechanical limits, or plausible plots. You just check your brain at the door, grab a huge bucket of popcorn and enjoy it in all of it's impossible glory. Vin Diesel gives the only performance...

The Founder
If you are a Michael Keaton fan you have to see this movie. This is the kind of film and character that is right in his wheelhouse. And, true to form, he kills it. I don't know how accurate of a portrayal this film is when it comes to the real-life people involved in the creation of the McDonald's empire, but I can say that this film is thoroughly entertaining and exciting. Watching Michael Keaton at his best while building one of the biggest companies in the world from the ground up is...

20th Century Women
This is one of those films where I feel like I'm the only movie critic that saw a completely different movie than everyone else. Critics everywhere are raving about this movie and the performances in it. Personally, I hated it. I saw this film in a theater with 14 people. All of us were invited directly by the studio to screen this movie. Within 30 minutes of the opening scene 3 of the 14 people had walked out never to return. My soul left with them. I wish I could have...

The Eagle Huntress
This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is beautifully shot, and the story is told in a way that will literally have you sitting on the edge of your seat and cheering for the main subject. This is a wonderful story of empowerment, growing up, and challenging the system. It is also a story of how deep a father's love will go for his daughter. By the end of this film you will be cheering and crying tears of joy. If you have daughters...

The Red Turtle
If you've been following the finalists for the different awards shows you may have seen THE RED TURTLE popping up in the Best Animated Film category. It is a unique and interesting film that is very much worthy of the accolades. It is beautifully drawn and the story is compelling and emotional. The most interesting aspect of this movie is that it has no dialogue, but even so, the emotion comes through in spectacular fashion. This is not an animated movie that young kids will enjoy. It deals with several adult themes that most...

The Bye Bye Man
Every once in a while a horror movie will come out that is unique, innovative, truly chilling, and a lot of fun. THE BYE BYE MAN is none of those. This is just another in a long line of boring, same old flicks that manages to give the audience a few jumps in spite of itself. This film is poorly done, poorly acted, poorly thought out, ans audiences will walk out thinking "poor me, I just paid money to see that crap." At just over 90 minutes long, it's about 75 minutes too...

Silence
There are very few films that have the power to cause an entire group of people to sit with rapt attention for almost three hours then file out of the theater in absolute silence. This is one of those films. This is not a film full of action. It is a slow-moving, thought-provoking, superbly-acted testament to people that are much stronger than most of us could every hope to be. It is a film that never lets up on the intensity, emotion, nor does it ever let you forget the stakes. Watching this...

Monster Trucks
Sometimes I wish there was a PG-10 rating. I don't think we need to go crazy with 157 different ratings for movies, but a PG-10 would be good. There feels like such a wide gap between PG and PG-13 that films like this have nowhere to find a good comfort zone. This movie is rated PG and it feels like it all the way through. It's not a bad film at all (for kids), but it could have been a much better film (for everyone) if it had a little bit more drama and suspense. (Like...
