    ★★★★½

    A great movie to add to my Halloween week movie marathon! Can't wait for part 2!

    Pros:
    + Great Story
    + Scary
    + Awesome set design; seriously Pennywise's lair was spectacular
    + Great, but not perfect character development
    + Interspersed the "research phase" throughout the movie, which allowed for better pacing
    +Well written
    +Superb acting by all the children


    Cons:
    -Acting of Pennywise felt off
    - More development needed for a couple of the kids, especially Richie

  • Life

    Life

    An all around terrible movie. An Alien rip off that just doesn't work.

    Pros:
    +Set Design
    +Special Effects


    Cons:
    - Unoriginal story
    -Entirely predictable
    -Alien isn't interesting; its just a squid
    -Many unnecessary scenes (reading Goodnight Moon made no sense)
    -Characters are not memorable. After finishing the movie I couldn't even remember any of their names. Horrible character development.



    I will not be watching this again. They could have done more of a "what if" movie instead just like The Martian and that would have been so much more interesting.

    Changeling

    ★★★½

    Pros:
    +Great Acting! Jolie is almost unrecognizable!
    +Set Design and Costumes were superb
    +Great Story with an unexpected twist
    +Unpredictable

    Cons:
    -Pacing was off. 3/4 was great, but the trial was too slow and had us wondering how much time was left on the movie and that is never a good sign.
    -A bit too long for what it is

    I enjoyed the movie, despite the uneven pacing. I recommend that you watch it because it is good but once you do, it's not one you watch again.

  • Cars 3

    Cars 3

    ★★★

    Pros:
    +A much better story than the first two but that doesn't say much
    +Mater only appears a few times; always found him annoying
    +Great visuals
    +Doc Hudson back story
    +Introduction of female racer


    Cons:
    -Middle of the movie was so incredibly boring. All the kids in the theater were asking when it was going to be over.
    -Humor is hit or miss
    -Didn't keep my attention. I almost fell asleep which really says something because I love animated movies
