    Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse get kicked out of their home and relocate to a fancy New York hotel, where a scrappy employee named Kayla will lose her job if she can’t evict Jerry before a high-class wedding at the hotel. Her solution? Hiring Tom to get rid of the pesky mouse.

    This is clearly a film built and intended for kids, so I don’t want to come across as…

    Friends hiking the Appalachian Trail are confronted by 'The Foundation', a community of people who have lived in the mountains for hundreds of years.

    This looked and felt overly familiar going in, obviously because it is classified as a remake (from the same writer), but these films usually do not stand out. One element that I enjoyed is the fact that it isn’t just the exact same story. Granted, it has…

    This film follows Holiday during her career as she is targeted by the Federal Department of Narcotics with an undercover sting operation led by black Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher, with whom she had a tumultuous affair.

    Let’s start with the absolute best thing about the film, and that is Andra Day. She is mesmerizing as Billie Holiday, and the film allows us to see both aspects of her life play out. We see and understand…

    An Army medic suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder becomes a serial bank robber after an addiction to drugs puts him in debt.

    “Let the games begin.”
    On an honest note, I get it, but I feel like I see something in this film that others may not (and that’s okay). Within the madness and over-the-top style of the first act, I recognized a glimmer of hope that could salvage…

    This is a tough one to tackle without spoilers, but I will honor that agreement. A musician who has lost his passion for music is transported out of his body and must find his way back with the help of an infant soul learning about herself. I watched a film called Nine Days a few weeks back, and it featured ideas and themes that felt so original, adult, important, and mature. Then…

    Zu is newly sober when she receives news that she is to become the sole guardian of her half-sister named Music, a young girl on the autism spectrum. The film explores two of Sia's favorite themes: finding your voice and creating family.

    So the controversy is the obvious place to start, and I am normally not one to judge a film based on controversy surrounding it (this is much different). I like to judge the…
