Annabelle: Creation
Movies
0   1   0   0   0
This origin story of the Annabelle franchise is significantly better than the first film in the series. This movie is flat out terrifying. It doesn't take long for the jumps and bumps to get going, and once they do they don't let up. You'll even get a good scare after the end credits are over. The only thing I didn't like about the scare factor of this movie is that a lot of the scares are set up by the characters doing dumb things that no real person would ever do. This could have been one...

This is one of those films that has an incredible cast doing amazing acting with a mediocre screenplay and poor editing. It could have been something truly special with a tighter edit of the screenplay before filming and then a good 30 minutes chopped out of the final product. While it is interesting to peek into the lives of this based-on-a-true-story family, the reality is that we never care about them enough to get into the details like the movie does. If the film had been edited to just show us a couple of the important...

This movie is basically Hollywood not even trying. It's not original, it's not compelling, all it does is touch on people's base emotions and instincts to protect their children. Honestly, I'm amazed that Halle Berry took this role. She already made an almost identical movie on 2013 called THE CALL. The only difference was that she was a 911 operator instead of the mom of the kidnapped person. The movie does have moments of suspense, and there are times where you'll catch yourself holding your breath, but overall it just feels like...

This is a moving, difficult to watch, but important to see film. It is intense, claustrophobic, and raw. It will make you angry, embarrassed, sad, and empathetic. Director Katheryn Bigelow brings her story-telling mastery to life in the same gritty way she did with ZERO DARK THIRTY and THE HURT LOCKER. There are moments so intense that you'll wish you could look away, but you can't. There are also many moments portrayed that you wish never happened, because the reality is so devastating. As hard as this film is to watch, it is a...

James Bond, you may have met your match. While this movie isn't great, it is very good, and it is, hopefully, the beginning of a new international spy thriller franchise. ATOMIC BLONDE has serious potential to be magnificent for decades. Not only does this film have the potential for a long life, but this could easily become the defining role for Theron. She plays the part of kick-butt heroine so well that there wasn't a single moment where her actions felt forced or sub-par. This film is smart,...

Nine minutes. Do you know how long nine minutes are? Sometimes nine minutes feels like it goes by in a flash, sometimes nine minutes feels like a lifetime. That was probably the point of director David Lowery wanting to show us the undefinable sense of time, but he does it with a NINE MINUTE scene of Rooney Mara eating a pie...aggressively. Eating a pie. Nine. Minutes. Kill me now. Look, here's the deal. If this...

I knew this was going to be a funny movie, what I wasn't expecting was to leave the theater with my stomach and jaw hurting from laughing so hard through the entire movie. There are several scenes where the laughter of the crowd was so loud and lasted so long that we missed the next 30-60 seconds of the movie. Not only is the movie funny, but this is the breakout film for Tiffany Haddish. She completely steals the show. She is spectacularly funny, but completely real and believable at the same time. The rest of...

Don't let the trailer fool you. This film has an incredible premise, but the execution is terrible. Almost every funny moment in the movie was crammed into the trailer. Neither Ferrell nor Poehler are even remotely close to being at the top of their game in this film. Their chemistry is awful, and their jokes are old and tired. If it wasn't for some of the secondary characters this movie would be entirely unwatchable. The film clocks in just shy of 90 minutes, but it feels like it's over 2 hours long....

Yes! Yes! Yes! We have a true contender for best film of the year! Not only that, but it has one of the best soundtracks of any movie in the last decade. This movie will have you on the edge of your seat, grabbing the armrests, and holding your breath all at the same time. It is intense, fun, funny, exciting, and marvelously acted. Kevin Spacey plays a role that I picture in my mind as President Underwood when he's taking a few days off from running the country. (HOUSE OF CARDS reference). Ansel...

The life story of Tupac Shakur is fascinating. It is beautiful, ugly, saint-like, evil, wonderful, and terrible. Unfortunately, the writers and director decided to give us a cleaned up, sugary sweet version of him. Sure, we see the shooting in the park, and we see the shooting in Atlanta, but the first makes 'Pac look like he's trying to diffuse the situation and the second makes it seem like he was a savior. This would have been a much better movie if it had been based on reality. Aside from the story,...
