Stuber (2019)

Stuber (2019)

5 / 10
The flawed yet funny “Stuber” captures the retro 80s buddy comedy feel in a modern day setting. The movie is far from perfect but has it all: action, comedy, mystery, and adventure, all set on the streets of Los Angeles. It’s a typical even... Read the full review »

What did I just watch? That was the question running through my mind when the credits started to roll. Best viewed with an audience, “Midsommar” is not so much a movie you watch as one that you experience. It’s something of a cinematic orde... Read the full review »

Indie festival circuit darling “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” is one of the most pretentious films I have ever seen. Here is a film that’s so manipulative and so full of itself that its powerful message is lost among the chaos. It’s... Read the full review »

2019 may go down in the cinematic history books as the Year of Disappointments, and “Yesterday” unfortunately continues the trend. This is a case of not only a squandered premise, but an example where the trailer is far better than the finishe... Read the full review »

Hot button topics of gender equality and sexism in the workplace are tackled in “Late Night,” a disappointing, tepid film written by and starring Mindy Kaling. It’s great that Amazon Studios took a chance on a comedy that conveys a minority... Read the full review »

Imagine being Tony Stark’s chosen one. Imagine your mentor placing all of his trust in you. Imagine being asked to fill his larger-than-life shoes. So goes the life of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) at the beginning of “Spider-Man: Far From Home.... Read the full review »

It’s a well-known fact in the world of cinema that Jim Jarmusch is an acquired taste, but fans of the director’s sarcastic wit and dark humor will love “The Dead Don’t Die,” a wacky, subversive, genre-blending zombie film that’s one of... Read the full review »

Shaft (2019)

Shaft (2019)

6 / 10
It’s easy (and accurate) to throw around words like “misogynistic,” “homophobic,” and “outdated” when it comes to describing “Shaft,” a needless update of the 1971 blaxploitation crime action film of the same name. It’s also ea... Read the full review »

Netflix has cornered the market on throwaway, lightweight original comedy films, something the company wears with pride like a shiny gold badge. Their multi-production deal with Adam Sandler has resulted in “Murder Mystery,” a mildly amusing w... Read the full review »

Perhaps you’d expect the Disney machine to milk its “Toy Story” franchise to death, especially with the arrival of “Toy Story 4.” Most animated films can take no more than a second installment before they jump the shark. Somehow, the on... Read the full review »

There’s simply not much to “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” a mostly uninspired, shallow sequel to Illumination’s 2016 animated hit. It’s not a bad movie per se, but most of what made the first installment so charming is missing this second... Read the full review »

It’s as bad as you’ve feared. “Men In Black International” surprisingly starts off strong, but completely falls apart within the first twenty minutes. When the movie is at its best, it feels like a project that would be better suited as a... Read the full review »

“Dark Phoenix” is a cinematic anomaly. It’s wildly entertaining, yet it’s not a good movie. This supposed final installment in the current X-Men franchise does a few things extremely well, but fails miserably at most others. It’s rotten,... Read the full review »

It’s a bright new renaissance in the romantic comedy genre, thanks in part to Netflix and their brand of original lovey-dovey films like “Always Be My Maybe.” The streaming titan looks poised to continue supporting and churning out goofy, ad... Read the full review »

Go big or go home. Such is the mantra of most big budget monster disaster movies, and it’s one of the main reasons why many devotees of the genre love them. There are certain things most fans want in a kaiju movie too, and “Godzilla: King of... Read the full review »

A good storyteller doesn’t neglect the details, but a great storyteller can assemble a tale that’s universally relatable. So is the failure of “Rocketman,” an Elton John biopic musical that feels a little too personal. The film obviously i... Read the full review »

Sometimes a movie’s poor marketing campaign does it such an injustice that it can actually help the film’s positive word of mouth and critic reviews once audiences see the movie. Sometimes a movie can leave folks giddy when they discover the f... Read the full review »

I can count on one hand the number of movies like “Long Shot,” part of the rare genre I’d love to see more of: the brainy romantic comedy. This part political satire / part odd couple flirt fest is a sharp and layered comedy that will especi... Read the full review »

As with most animated films from LAIKA Animation Studios, “Missing Link” is a smarter-than-your-average cinematic cartoon dump. This sweet tale of friendship and adventure delivers the quality audiences have come to expect, but may prove borin... Read the full review »

The grossly misguided “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” is a partly fictionalized account of notorious murderer Ted Bundy (Zac Efron), a man who became famous in the 1980s for committing a multitude of heinous crimes against women.... Read the full review »
