This is one of the best films of the year. Almost everything about this works perfectly. The story is tragic yet beautiful and flows perfectly with impeccable pacing. If the chemistry between the leads didn't work this film would have been a disas... Read the full review »

For everyone that was worried or had reservations about this film let me ease for fears. Spider-Man is back. Tom Holland was perfection as Peter and Spider-Man. He was able to not only capture the innocence and youth of Peter but, also the struggl... Read the full review »

This film is a bit of a mess and while I didn't enjoy it I will say it's better than the last one. The only saving grace for this film, as with all of the films since the first, is the visuals. The level of detail given to the Transformers and the... Read the full review »

Gal Gadot is perfect as Diana. She delivers both in the physicality and the dramatic moment of the film, giving the character a youth and naivety that feels different from any other in the DCEU. The comedic timing between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine... Read the full review »

Kaya Scodelario was the best part of the film. Her character felt fresh and is smart, strong female lead the series has never really had. Javier Bardem was awesome as Salazar. The character was fearsome and vicious. The look of the character was d... Read the full review »

Charlie Hunnam was great as Arthur delivering a performance that was convincing in both the action sequences and the emotional moments. Jude Law was the perfect balance of creepy, detached, and ominous in with portrayal of Vortigern. For most of t... Read the full review »

Michael Rooker stole the film as Yandu. Expanding is role from the first film, Rooker's performance makes Yandu a likable character that the audience can connect to emotionally. In particular the scenes with Rocket in which the have the best chemi... Read the full review »

The problem with "Passengers" is that the movie doesn't know what it wants to be. The first two acts of the film focus on the relationship between Jim and Aurora. As it moves into the third act the filmmakers try to turn "Passengers" into a captiv... Read the full review »

If you were hoping for "Assassin's Creed" to be the savior of video game-based films, I hate to break it to you it's not. This movie was a heaping steaming flaming pile of human excrement. The biggest problem with the film is that there was almost... Read the full review »

Despite the predictable clichéd plot, "Son in Law" anyone, there was only one big flaw with the film. Pacing. In both the second and third acts it felt the movie was dragging on. Of course, there was the occasional joke that was juvenile and lowb... Read the full review »

Despite having a wide-ranging and talented vocal cast the film as whole falls a bit flat. The plot is unoriginal and the script is lackluster with jokes that frequently fall flat. I didn't laugh until well into the second act of the film. With tal... Read the full review »

There are only two small flaws in the film. The first is somewhat unavoidable with biopics. The drama at the focus for each of these women emanates from their careers, but in order for the audience to connect to them, the career friction has to be... Read the full review »

If anyone was hoping that this would be the film to rejuvenate the Underworld franchise I sorry to break it to you, it won't. Unfortunately, this film does not bring us more of the awe and action that gained the original its cult following. It sim... Read the full review »

Anya Taylor-Joy gives a great performance as Casey. The way each of the girls reacts to their abduction and the decisions they make in attempts to escape showcases the different personalities of each character. McAvoy shines in an Oscar caliber pe... Read the full review »

Unfortunately, there is nothing I can say in favor of this film. A combination of cliche horror tropes, amateur level editing, plot holes, a worthless screenplay, and a plot twist that renders Alice's journey through the past five films irrelevant... Read the full review »

John Wick is back! The film brought everything we loved about the and made it even bigger. The thing I loved the most about the first film was the way the world was built and the mythology of that world. The film not only expanded the role of The... Read the full review »

The only good thing about this film was the character progression of Campbell. He starts the film as a sniveling coward and at the end of the film he learns to stand up for himself. Although sometimes it was erratic, several times when you thought... Read the full review »
