My Rating – 9/10 This is just an absolute adrenaline rush of pop culture. For the readers out there the movie doesn’t follow the book to the letter, but director Steven Spielberg is able to capture the spirit of Ernest Cline’s novel pretty well. The plot may feel a bit rushed and there might be […]

My Rating – 6/10 “Unfortunately dull and disappointing” is probably the best way to describe Cory Finely’s drama-thriller, especially after all the raving reviews it has been obtaining. Sure the film is different and that might be refreshing to those tired of blockbusters, but the poor pacing kept the movie’s concept from being great. At […]

My Rating – 7/10 Is there really much to expect from a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters? Well unfortunately due to the surprisingly good nature of the first “Pacific Rim” there are pretty high expectations for the sequel. Steven S. DeKnight’s directorial debut was a decent one, but it holds no water to […]

My Rating – 9.5/10 Annihilation: This movie is scary, anxiety-inducing, and borderline disturbing. However, it’s also one of the best science fiction experiences one can have in a theater. Director Alex Garland has followed up his directorial debut of “Ex Machina” beautifully. It’s safe to say as a writer he is a powerhouse and as […]

(9.5/10) – My Rating Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Director and writer Martin McDonagh deserves a lot of praise for this dramatic dark comedy he created. The story follows a rather distraught mother played by Frances McDormand dealing with the tragic death of her daughter. In doing so she ends up going after the police to […]

(5/10) – My Rating Mother!: This is a film that starts off strong and ends on an off note. For about the first half of the film, writer and director Darren Aronofsky gives the audience interesting takes on Biblical stories, family dynamics, and fame. The horror-thriller elements are also very strong in this portion of the […]

(7/10) – My Rating  The Greatest Showman: Contemporary pop style songs in a period musical is certainly a different choice. One that I am definitely not mad about because there are some very good songs in the film. Michael Gracey’s directorial debut tells a decent bit of P. T. Barnum’s story. Unfortunately, though the story […]

(7.5/10) – My Rating Good Time: Directors Josh and Ben Safdie’s neon filled crime drama is certainly one that will be talked about by its fans for a long time. They portray an interesting underground world where one of the film’s central points is a Sprite bottle. To the characters the bottle is practically the […]

(7/10) – My Rating Cars 3: After the vast difference in quality between the first two I wasn’t too sure what to expect from the third part. Luckily, the film is closer to the original than the truly disappointing “Cars 2.” Director Brian Fee’s third chapter in the franchise takes Lightning McQueen back to the the […]

(6.5/10) – My Rating Bright: This Netflix original tried to be a few different things. It mixed together a crime drama about social issues with fantasy. Director David Ayer (Suicide Squad) helps create a fascinating gritty world full of tension, corruption, and of course magic. Social and class issues are also represented through three different […]
