    Dead Man Walking

    ★★★★½

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    A poignant story of death, punishment, and forgiveness as a nun reaches deep within herself to try and be strong for a despised death row inmate, in attempt to bring love into his heart.

    "How can you stand next to him? ... Mr. Percy, I'm just trying to follow the example of Jesus, who said that a person is not as bad as his worst deed ... This is not a person. This is…

    The Raid 2

    ★★★½

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    Cringe Movie Bucket List

    (Foreign language film - Indonesian /English dub available)

    An endurance test of brutal bone-breaking action stretched thin storywise, and with no actual raids.

    "They're not cops anymore. They're in my world now."

    I have Joey Porter to thank for getting me to finally check out the highly toted action extravaganza known as The Raid films. While The Raid 2 was far too drawn out, I did like there being more…

    Up

    ★★★½

    It was especially amusing to watch Up projected in the woods for our Cub Scout camping trip.

    "Tents are hard ... Wait. Aren't you super wilderness guy, with the GPMs and the badges? ... Yeah, but can I tell you a secret? ... No ... All right ... Here it goes ... I never actually built a tent before ... There, I said it."

    Yes, UP is whimsically sweet and emotional, but this movie really loses me by the time…

  • Robin Hood

    Robin Hood

    ★★★★★

    Robin Hood holds up as one of my favorite Disney classics.

    🎵 Robin Hood and Little John, walking through the forest
    Laughing back and forth at what the other one has to say
    Reminiscing this and that and having such a good time
    Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally, golly, what a day. 🎵

    The pacing of this film is so energetic and combines perfectly with its excellent score to draw in young viewers and fill their imaginations with the legends of Sherwood Forest.…

  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★★

    (RIP Harold Ramis: 1944 - 2014)

    Dusting off those old Proton Packs to honor the past, and look to the future.

    "I will always be a Ghostbuster."

    I did not come into Ghostbusters: Afterlife with any expectations, and as a long-time fan of the franchise it was so exciting to see the story continued like this. The movie takes us out to the middle of nowhere where Egon Spengler was preparing for the final stage of Gozer's
    apocalypse. But when…

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    An all new Spiderman comes into his own as Marvel and Sony unleash the Spider-Verse!

    "Wow, that is one hardcore origin story kid."

    The dazzling pages of a comic book come to life in this highly unique and imaginative animated film. For so long I have wanted to see a Spiderman movie that was not handcuffed to the constraints of a simple hero story and one or two villains. And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse delivers that and much more as…
