This film starts off with a bang. The opening scene was one of the most intense and engaging scenes of the year. Dylan O'Brien is able to deliver another performance showing that he has a bright future. The physicality he brought to the screen mad... Read the full review »

Everything that this film needed to live up to the mini-series it did. Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise was not just downright terrifying there was nothing funny about him at all. but also creepy and felt sociopathic and inhuman. The chemistry between... Read the full review »

This film was a huge surprise and will probably end up on my Top 10 of the year. This film held my attention from the moment it opened. Jeremy Renner has given what I think is his best performance to date. The way he subtly portrays the pain he's... Read the full review »

The action sequences were expert choreographed and shot bringing the classic feel of Hong-Kong action films like Police Story or Enter the Dragon. Philip Ng was startling in his portrayal of Bruce Lee. The way he captured his mannerisms and person... Read the full review »

Woody Harrelson was outstanding as the patriarch of the Walls family. He is able to masterfully deliver all the shades and colors of Rex's character drawing you into and making you care about the character even in his most abhorrent moments. It mi... Read the full review »

Talitha Bateman was a stand out as Janet. As was Lulu Wilson as Linda. Their sister-like relationship gave the film stakes. Sandberg's use of creepy visuals was more effective to than the best jump-scares. Some of the ways he shot certain sequence... Read the full review »

Idris Elba was great as Roland, and as usual was the best part of this film. All of the Gunslinger action sequences were great and reminded me of the "gun fu" style action sequences from 80's and 90's Hong Kong action films. I found myself captiva... Read the full review »

This film is incredibly realistic. From the jump, Nolan immerses you in the gripping fear and hopelessness of the situation. The visuals are stunning. This is a film that needs to be seen in IMAX. The way Nolan uses the changing aspect ratio to ma... Read the full review »

The opening of this film provides a foundation that Besson uses to build an expansive, sprawling, and diverse world that feels lived in. The origin of Alpha is creative, imaginative, and feels grounded. All of the action sequences are exciting, we... Read the full review »

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 »

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 »
