Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again
Yes, here we go again... Only this time it is much better than the first one! If you loved the first MAMMA MIA film then this is a must-see for you. For those of you that didn't really care for the auditory talent in the first film. (*Everyone stops to stare at Pierce Brosnan.*) Never fear, because this flick is filled with a ton of people who can really sing. Even the story is better this time around. It's a lot more fun and carefree than the first. We...

The Equalizer 2
Here is the key to making this a good movie. When you watch it, just have fun. Don't think about what is happening or why it is happening. Just let it happen. Then, by all means, do NOT think about the plot of this movie after you leave the theater. If you start to poke at it at all the entire story comes crashing down. So, enjoy the pretty house of cards and don't breathe near it. Now, for those of you that actually like to think about the films you see, you are much better off...

Unfriended: Dark Web
I feel dumber for having witnessed this useless piece of trash. The first film in this franchise had a bunch of young people screaming and crying in a chat room for 90 minutes. So does this one. There are few things more annoying than watching people yell at each other in a chat room. The one thing that I will give this movie over the previous one is that it has a fairly decent twist. However, by the time it got to the twist I was so over the movie I just wanted everyone in the film...

Sorry To Bother You
I tried so hard to like this movie. There is something about it that is great. Unfortunately, it plays out in an amateurish way and loses the essence of everything that is great about it. This movie would do well to have a person standing at the exit door saying "Sorry you had to watch that," as you leave. There are way too many useless moments throughout the film. I'm sure they were a lot of fun to shoot, but this film needed a better editor to make sure those moments didn't make the final cut. All...

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
The third installment of this franchise does a good job of progressing the overall story. It has some fun and funny moments with a lot of physical comedy thrown in for good measure. The downside to this film is that, once again, too much of the film was revealed in the trailers, so the twist is just another plot point by the time you see the full movie. It is also pretty intense over the last 20 minutes or so. My six year old is probably a bit too sensitive, but she was really scared during the...

Skyscraper
This is an action flick in every sense of the term. It is jam-packed with action, but the rest of the movie is filled with ridiculous dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and huge plot holes and moments of convenience. The acting is passable at best, and in some cases it is downright terrible, the effects look and feel pretty low-budget, but the action and suspense carry this movie all the way through to it's triumphant end. If you are in the mood for a no-brainer popcorn flick that will have you holding your breath with suspense...

Ant-Man and the Wasp
I am dealing with a bevy of emotions as I am writing this review. On the one hand, this is a fantastically fun movie that will have you laughing throughout. It is exciting. It is full of action and incredible CGI work. On the other hand, I really think that I am starting to get Marvel Fatigue. Yes, this film is all of those great things, but so is almost every other Marvel movie. I need something different, something new. And I'm not talking about a new character on a new quest, I mean a shift...

The First Purge
There is an old saying, "what goes up must come down." Sure, it's a gravity-based proverb, but it also applies to the PURGE franchise. This is the fourth film in the franchise, but it is the first in the timeline. It's the origin story of the Purge. And it is almost great. The first film was terrible. It was nothing more than a basic slasher flick. The second one had a very interesting twist that made it much more believable and relevant. The third film was downright amazing with its...

Uncle Drew
When I saw the trailer for this film it made me hate most of my life choices leading me to see it. But, as with all films, I go in with an open mind hoping that it will be the best movie of the year. While UNCLE DREW is far from great, it is a lot of fun and will make for a good night out with your friends. It is formulaic and predictable, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing with this movie. It's a sports comedy that doesn't try to be anything else. It does...

Sicario: Day Of The Soldado
I will give this to the SICARIO franchise, they know how to set a dark mood. Just like the first film, DAY OF THE SOLDADO has exactly zero happy moments. It is filled with despair, horrible people, and decisions that have to be made that have no positive outcome. One of the things that gives this movie some power is the methodical, mechanical way the characters go about doing their jobs. There is very little emotion, and when emotion is interjected it is quickly dispatched. Because of this there are many times where the film feels slow....

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
I can still remember 25 years ago, sitting in the theater, staring at the screen in awe, and watching what looked to be real dinosaurs walking with humans. I remember how fun and terrifying JURASSIC PARK was. I also remember how smart it was. It made us have to think about the consequences of our actions, and how even the most noble missions can have unintended and disastrous consequences. Now, it's 25 years and 5 movies later and I'm still watching the same story. Sure, the dinosaurs look even more realistic now, but other than that the...

Incredibles 2
It's been 14 long years since we were blessed with the awesomeness of the Parr family and their superhero alter-egos. It was worth the wait. INCREDIBLES 2 is fantastic. I took my 8 year old daughter to the early screening of this film. She is a much tougher critic than I am and she loved it. She even told me she wants to see it again. I don't think she has ever asked to see a movie a second time. I mean, this is the girl who didn't like FROZEN! (I told you she's tough). ...

This may be the sleeper hit of the summer. I was hoping it would be funny and exciting, but I got so much more than I expected. This is a spectacular film that runs the gamut of emotions. It is fun and funny. You will be fully entertained and laughing hard throughout the whole film. The pacing is perfect. It never feels like it is dragging or skipping over things. The acting is well done, and the chemistry the leads have is some of the best I've ever seen on screen. The best part...

Superfly
I'm sure it was no accident that this film was released on the 35th anniversary of the release of SCARFACE. It's obvious the director was hoping to make a SCARFACE for a new generation. So, if you want to know what this movie is all about, just imagine SCARFACE. Now imagine SCARFACE being a terrible flick with some really bad acting, embarrassingly bad dialogue, and a ridiculous plot with one-dimensional bad guys. Now you have SUPERFLY. The good news is that if you see this poor attempt at a drug lord movie, you'll get...

Won't You Be My Neighbor
If you grew up watching Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood this is a must-see documentary. It will bring back a flood of memories and give you new insight into the show and the man that was a true friend to millions of children. It is a beautiful, powerful, and emotional film that will have you laughing until your jaw hurts and crying until the tears are all gone. In a time in our world where so many devices are begging for our attention and people are so easily divided over issues and politics, the simplicity and...
