Despite all its flaws and sheer absurdity, we are big fans of the original "Mamma Mia!" We were also really looking forward to this sequel, so you can't imagine our disappointment when this turned out to be a completely bland slog of a musical. Read the full review »

When we watch a movie like "Skyscraper," we pretty much know what to expect. What we expected this movie would be is exactly what we got: a giant building that is up in flames with The Rock racing against a ticking timeclock trying to save his fam... Read the full review »

Of all the Adam Sandler-led films released in the last decade+, the movies in the "Hotel Transylvania" series are probably the most tolerable... We laughed pretty consistently throughout this installment, just like we have with the other entries i... Read the full review »

This documentary starts out with a heartwarming tale about triplets separated at birth finding each other at the tender age of 19. It covers how they hit it off instantaneously and became inseparable after that as if time had never passed...And th... Read the full review »

We had many reservations going into this film. After all, it is based on a commercial, which means it is in constant danger of becoming a one-joke premise stretched out for 103 minutes. If the whole movie was just about Kyrie Irving and a bunch of... Read the full review »

THANK GOD we can put the much more intense "Avengers: Infinity War" on the back-burner and enjoy the comedic stylings of Scott Lang and co. for a couple of hours before we return to the fetal position we were left in post-snap. Read the full review »

Gotti (2018)

Gotti (2018)

2 / 10
"Gotti" feels like it was written and directed by a delusional 12-year-old Gotti fanboy. It's really odd to see a movie portraying a horrible person like John Gotti in such a flattering light. It seems like director Kevin Connolly wants the audien... Read the full review »

The things that really determine if it's worth watching are the characters, the performances, and the overall likeability and humor of the film since it offers nothing new in terms of plot. Luckily, this movie succeeds in all of those areas. What... Read the full review »

21 years ago, Steven Spielberg directed "The Lost World: Jurassic Park," which involved capturing dinosaurs and relocating them, only to have them escape and run amok in a highly populated area. "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" re-runs that same b... Read the full review »

"Death Wish" is a pretty standard, extremely generic revenge thriller that is banking off of the name of the original vigilante justice film from the 1970's to attract viewers. Bruce Willis completely phones in his performances as Paul Kersey, ful... Read the full review »

"The Strangers: Prey at Night" starts off fine and dandy, following the same beats as the original, so much so that it feels almost like a direct remake, not a sequel. There is a bit of suspense and tension in the first part of the film that makes... Read the full review »

Dude (2017)

Dude (2017)

2 / 10
The script is full of cringey dialogue and lines that are supposed to be spoken by teenagers but sound absolutely nothing like anything a teenager would ever say...at least we hope they don't. The pacing of this film is terribly slow, and the movi... Read the full review »

Fred Rogers lived his life based on one philosophy: love. He believed everything in life stems from "love or the lack of it." This is a message that has been missing from our culture for the last couple of decades. In all honesty, it has probably... Read the full review »

This is a pretty by-the-numbers, formulaic story. It isn't terribly well paced, and much of the movie seems to drag on and on at times. Luckily, it isn't very lengthy. The one thing that helps elevate "The Hero" is Sam Elliott, who gives a tremend... Read the full review »

One man's fall into hopelessness is what "First Reformed" is all about. A myriad of dilemmas leads Toller down his path of sorrow as illness, past regrets, alcoholism, and societal concerns plague his soul and mind day in and day out. The main soc... Read the full review »

Tag (2018)

Tag (2018)

7 / 10
Any success the film has is accomplished by getting the audience invested in each of these characters and their unique friendship. All of the actors have great chemistry with one another, and we believe them as mates despite their obvious age diff... Read the full review »

Breath (2017)

Breath (2017)

5 / 10
"Breath" is a pretty standard coming-of-age film...until it isn't. It is set against breathtaking and beautiful settings and is full of glorious surfing moments that are very fun to watch, though they aren't anything we haven't already seen 100 ti... Read the full review »

On a technical level, "Flower" is a very competently made movie. The actors involved in this picture give excellent performances (Deutch in particular), the pacing is solid, and it can even be funny and entertaining at times... That being said, wh... Read the full review »

On the surface, "Hotel Artemis" has a lot going for it. It has a great visual aesthetic with a futuristic setting that also looks sort of retro and lived in... If you try to look past its flashy exterior, you will quickly realize this is a vehicl... Read the full review »

We knew nothing about "Upgrade" going into it. We hadn't seen any marketing material for it at all. It's a damn shame this movie wasn't marketed more because it's an entertaining, impressive and fun movie. This revenge thriller with a sci-fi twist... Read the full review »
