The Glass Castle

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...

Atomic Blonde

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,...

The Big Sick

Just like the classic children's tale about a train, this could very well be one of those little movies that could. It's not some big-budget blockbuster that will amaze all of your senses. It's a simple love story that is quirky, funny, heart-breaking, heart-warming and real. This film is based on the real life experience of Kumail and his wife Emily. It is a fascinating blend of comedy, cultural tension, family issues, love and sickness. While this isn't a rom-com that belongs in the upper echelon of cinematic greatness, it is a...

The CARS franchise has made a triumphant return to greatness with this new film. While this isn't the classic the first film is, it is still significantly better than CARS 2. One of the great things about this franchise is that all of the movies have been family-friendly, and this one, like the first, is a film that kids will find to be both suspenseful and compelling. They will also enjoy the fun, new characters introduced into the story. As for the parents, you will find this to be moderately amusing and entertaining. It...

This is a moderately humorous comedy. It isn't a movie that will become an always-on-tv-classic, but seeing it once isn't a bad thing. Scarlett Johansson does a surprisingly good job in her first lead role in a raunchy comedy. In fact, there isn't a sour note with any of the casting choices. But, as usual, Kate McKinnon steals the show. The trailers make this movie look like a fairly simplistic and formulaic comedy, but the full story is actually much more complex and interesting. It is filled with twists (although they are super-easy to...

This is an interesting film. It's not great by any stretch of the imagination, but it has moments of brilliance. It also has moments of eye-rolling stupidity. One of those moments is the last five minutes of the movie. Some people are going to think the end of the movie is outstanding, others are going to hate it with the burning passion of a thousand suns. The good news is, either way you're going to feel something. This film is full of great suspense. There were several times where I caught myself...

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...

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...

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....

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...
