    ★★

    I understand and respect that it’s a classic but it was too dated for me. 

    I’d watch Beverly Hills Cop everyday over this.

  • Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    ★★★

    This is one giant Lonely Island video. If you dig their humor, you’ll love the movie. 

    There are some hilarious gags in here and some terrific cameos from celebrities.

    I was completely mesmerized by the filming and cinematography. 

    Just breathtaking!

    It was one hour and six minutes into the film before it’s first clean camera cut.

    The score is beautiful.

    ★★★★★

    This is exactly the movie I wanted from a Justice League movie. I really enjoyed having the film be 4 hours long because each character got plenty of time to breathe and develop on screen without feeling rushed.

    No one does slow motion better than Zack Snyder!

    From a historical perspective, I can't believe we got this film!

    ★★★

    This third installment of the franchise was definitely the weakest but still mildly entertaining.

    I really appreciate the studio was able to keep all of the main character voices. Too often they are different in some of the subsequent sequels and that really bothers me.

    ★★★

    Another great Disney story. I love the continuation of strong female characters in Disney films overall.

    My kids really enjoyed this movie and we found ourselves talking about the story and characters days after watching it.

    ★★★★

    This movie relies **very heavily** on Tom Holland and he shows some outstanding range. He can play vulnerable, shy, brave, and reckless all very well and I'm really impressed with his abilities.

    The final 10-15 minutes are nothing but score and they prove to be very effective at wrapping up the storyline.

  • Hannibal

    Hannibal

    ★★★

    This is a super disturbing movie. Aside from the unfortunate re-casting of Clarice Starling, it’s a much better movie than ‘Red Dragon’ but probably not quite as good as ‘Silence of the Lambs’.


    It doesn’t feel like a Ridley Scott movie. Although, perhaps that drives home how diverse a director he can be.

  • Saving Private Ryan

    ★★★★★

    This is a phenomenal movie! Certainly worthy of all the critical acclaim. I've seen this movie a few times before but probably not in the last 10 years.

    I failed to find a single flaw from start to finish.

    Simply incredible.

  • Free State of Jones

    ★★

    I went into this movie not expecting to like it and unfortunately, I was right. It’s a fine story that we sent see much portrayed on screen often but it just didn’t capture my attention or interest.

    Man, that’s an incredible movie! It’s been probably 10 years since I’ve seen it and I remember it being pretty good. But my word! 🙌

  • Body of Lies

    Body of Lies

    ★★

    A middle of the road spy thriller. Not one of my favorite films by Ridley Scott though.

    As always, Leonardo DiCaprio was great and probably the best thing about this movie.
