The House With A Clock In Its Walls
If you have a child that is in the 8 - 10 year old range and they are wanting to dip their toe into movies that are more mature than the films they watched as younger kids, this is a great movie for them to see. It offers up some suspense, a few creepy-crawlies, a couple of minor scares, and a lot of laughs. It has an interesting story that is simple enough for kids to follow along, but still compelling enough to keep adults engaged in the film. Jack Black and...

Life Itself
Have you ever heard the old joke that action movies are a bunch of people dying really fast, while a romance is about one person dying really slow? This may be the movie that bucks the trend. It's an ensemble cast film filled with ensemble death. (And just about as many f-bombs as a hardcore action flick). The film has some very nice and moving moments, it also has some scenes that will take you far out of your comfort zone. But for the most part it's pretty boring until they finally "land the plane." By that...

The Predator
There is a high probability that this movie is going to end up on my 10 Worst Films of the Year list. It's going to take several real stinkers to knock this one off of the list. Director Shane Back should be embarrassed that he made such a terrible movie, and the producers should be ashamed that they didn't secure enough funding to make this thing look better than a bad made-for-television film from the mid-80's. The effects are so bad they are literally laugh-out-loud funny. The acting is terrible to the point...

A Simple Favor
A SIMPLE FAVOR is simply fantastic! This is one of the best dark comedies of all time. I would even go so far as to put this on the same level as FARGO. There are very few movies that can pull off a sick and twisted plot but still have you laughing hard every few minutes. This one does it nearly flawlessly. Anna Kendrick is a beast and this is Blake Lively's best role of her career. I was worried that Kendrick might be a bit too nice to pull off her role,...

White Boy Rick
While this film is based on a fascinating true story, it feels like it never really gets going. The whole movie is a slow burn. Even the climax is barely exciting. It is a film worth seeing for the interesting story and the great acting, but this one would be a lot easier to watch if you can pause it every once in a while and do something else. It is relentlessly sad and depressing. There are very few moments of joy and even fewer moments of redemption. Most of it is desperate people...

The Nun
This is another film in the world of the CONJURING movies. While it is scary in several places the story is weak. It is a far cry from the terrifying films before it. As I watched the CONJURING movies I was disturbed and chilled by them. With this one I was bored most of the time, and when it neared the climax it turned into some sort of weird zombie flick instead of a demonic presence. The good news for horror fans is that this movie does offer a lot of scares of...

Peppermint
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And Jennifer Garner's character is a massive fist of fury ready to knock out anything and everything in her path. If you are a fan of ALIAS you have to see this movie now. In many ways it feels like the return of Sidney Bristow. If you like movies like JOHN WICK you need to see this movie now. I would love to see a battle royal between Jennifer and Keanu. It would be two hours of the best MMA fight you've ever seen. For those...

Searching
This is an interesting film. It's almost a "found-footage" style movie, but it takes it a step further by incorporating texts, chats, and more. And even though the director decided to use webcams, phone video, and news coverage, he still treats it like everything was shot through a movie camera. So instead of us seeing a video chat in the same flat way, he uses closeups and camera movement to evoke emotion and suspense. The technique strays away from the "rules" of found footage films, but it makes the movie much more entertaining. The story is told...

Kin
I wasn't sure what to make of this movie when I saw the first trailer. Now that I've seen the movie, I'm still not sure what to make of it. It feels like a pet project for Michael B. Jordan. He is the Executive Producer and he has a small role in it. But it is also an origin story for a much bigger plot. I'm sure that if this movie makes money we will see a sequel in a couple of years. It's an odd film because it has Sci-Fi elements to it, but 95%...

Operation Finale
I know it is way too early in the year to start throwing around award nominations, and I'm sure this film doesn't have the staying power to be considered by the different voting groups when the time comes, but this is an incredible and award-worthy film. Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac deserve all of the accolades for their portrayals in this film. Kingsley, in particular, becomes Adolf Eichmann. Even down to the facial movements. He is able to switch from family man to abhorrent monster in the blink of an eye. There are moments where you loathe...

The Happytime Murders
Every so often we get the joy of seeing a new and unique film that breaks the mold and gives us all hope that there is still some creativity left in Hollywood. This is not that film. This is a horrible waste of your time and everybody else's time that had the displeasure of working on this movie. It is barely funny because it spends most of the movie trying to be a somewhat serious murder mystery. It's a basic mystery movie at best because when it should be giving us twists we don't...

AXL
This is essentially the exact same movie as MONSTER TRUCKS, MAX STEEL, CHAPPIE, and every other corny flick where a couple of slackers manage to beat the government at their own game by accidentally figuring out the hidden powers of the newly found object. The only difference is that this one is much worse than those other films. The story never really goes anywhere, the effects are okay at best, the action in laughable, and the bad guys are an embarrassment to bad guys everywhere. There were several moments where I found myself looking at my watch,...

Mile 22
Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have teamed up for some very interesting and good action movies. This film is by far the worst of that bunch. The opening scene should be one that is full of suspense and precise action. Instead it falls flat to the point of almost being boring. Even when the action starts the excitement level never really gets going. Once into the meat of the movie it becomes quickly apparent that there are very few characters, if any, to root for. Everyone is a jerk, or evil, or an evil...

Alpha
If they gave an Academy Award for location scouting, ALPHA would surely win it. This film is filled with beautiful and amazing scenery. Unfortunately, that is where all of the awards talk would end. The rest of the movie is okay at best. This is one of those films that I'm not really sure how it got made. It really doesn't have an audience. This is evidenced by the change of tone in the trailers over the last several months. At the beginning of the year this movie had a trailer that was dark, ominous, and filled...

Crazy Rich Asians
This is one of the best romantic comedies I've seen in a very long time. It is a film to which everyone that has ever dealt with someone else's family can relate. This movie is filled with beautiful scenery, a compelling story, and wonderful acting. The leads, Constance Wu and Henry Golding, are great and you'll fall in love with both of them, but Awkwafina steals the show. She is hilarious, magnetic, and crazy awesome fun. We got a little bit of her personality in OCEAN'S 8, but it really shines through in this film. She is...
