Corny as hell
3 1/2 Stars
Best Performance: Elsie Fisher
Scene Stealer: Josh Hamilton
Worth Seeing? Yes (especially if you're Middle School years sucked, like mine)
Rewatch Factor: 6/10
Additional Notes: A cool take on the coming-of-age genre of films since not a lot take place in middle school. Some aspects felt fresh due to it setting not in high school. It is very relatable if you did not have the best time throughout some, or all, of your middle school years, like me.
Best Performance: Tom Cruise
Scene Stealer: Rebecca Ferguson
Worth Seeing in Theaters? Hell Yes!
Rewatch Factor: 8/10
Additional Notes: I cannot believe that since Ghost Protocol, that these films keep getting better and better. As Tom Cruise keeps getting older and older, like by the time the next one of these rolls around he'll be knocking on 60. Best film of the year. So far.
Best Performance: Dustin Hoffman
Scene Stealer: Anne Bancroft
Worth Seeing? Yes it’s a classic
Rewatch Factor: 7/10
Additional Notes: Astounding directing from Nichols. This truly is a classic, and holds up over 50 years later, and is a must see for film fans.
