• Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    ★★★½

    The 2nd film in a trilogy is always in a difficult spot because it's used as the catalyst for the final movie. This is clearly the case with Halloween Kills. It does have some of the goriest and original kills of the entire franchise, however focuses on the past a little too much because our main characters are stuck in the hospital. Some fans will love and some will hate, but without question, the last 5 minutes sets up what will be the ultimate showdown in Halloween Ends between Michael Myers and Laurie Strode.

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★★★

    As a new viewer of this franchise, I enjoyed No Time To Die. When there was action, it was fantastic, but having an almost 3 hour runtime is a little much. I understand it's Daniel Craig's last movie as Bond, but it wasn't necessary. I wanted Rami Malek to have more of an impact as the villain. Why wasn't Ana de Armas utilized in this movie more??? The best part was when her and Bond were on screen together!!!! Overall the movie is an enjoyable viewing, especially if seen with your father, like I did!

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    ★★½

    Venom Let There Be Carnage is a rushed underwhelming sequel that had potential, but missed the mark. I don't believe Andy Serkis was the right director for this project. I also didn't care for the girlfriend subplot for Woody Harrelsons character. Michelle Williams acted like this movie was an obligation. The highlight for me was Tom Hardy. All of the ingredients were there to satisfy, but Venom 2 just didn't achieve what I wanted it to.

  • Kate

    Kate

    ★★★★½

    Kate was everything I wanted it to be! Original plot concept, believable actress, plenty of action, and bits of comedy thrown in. Action roles is truly where Mary Elizabeth Winstead shines, however she should branch out into different roles so she's not typecast. Extremely creative fight sequences are consistent throughout the movie and the pacing is on point. The slight negative is that I guessed the twist of the movie about half way thru, so it wasn't a total surprise. Kate is on Netflix now and I highly recommend it!

  • Cinderella

    Cinderella

    ★½

    While I know the message this film is making with having girls/women live out their dreams, the question remains: Was Cinderella 2021 necessary? My answer is no. I personally appreciate classics and don't understand the need to modernize them into something that's cringeworthy to watch. On the positive side, James Corden wasn't as annoying because his role was extremely limited and Idina Menzel stole the show. Camilla Cabello needs to stick with her singing career, while Minnie Driver and Pierce…

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★★

    Marvel steps up their game with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. This film is the perfect combo of origin story and fight scenes. Such creativity on a level we haven't seen before! Simu Liu is a star and welcome addition to our beloved franchise. Awkwafina fits right in, but doesn't dominate with the humor. The entire movie is a balancing act of entertainment and I can't wait to see more!!!!!

    I'm sitting here wondering what was in front of me. I turned this movie off an hour in because I didn't know the point. It seemed to drag on endlessly and the music was getting on my nerves. I love Adam Driver, but I will never attempt to watch this movie again!

  • Free Guy

    Free Guy

    ★★★★★

    Free Guy is nothing but fun for 2 hours! Full of creativity and originality, this movie delivers humor, action, romance and secret cameos! Every part is cast perfectly and Ryan Reynolds shines in this role!!! He excels in humor/action roles, however in Free Guy, he also brings the innocence and sweetness. Perfect summer movie for the entire family!

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    The Suicide Squad is everything we hoped it would be. Violent, funny, gory, emotional and shot beautifully. James Gunn revamps this movie to another level of entertainment that makes David Ayer's version look like film school. It's not perfect, however after the lackluster WW84, DC needed a win and thankfully, The Suicide Squad lives up to the hype!

  • Jungle Cruise

    Jungle Cruise

    ★★★★

    Jungle Cruise is nothing but awesome fun! Disney has another winner on their hands with this perfect family fun movie! The chemistry between Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt is fantastic, however if I were to nitpick about something, why do they have to get together? Why can't a man and woman just be friends? Overall, this adventure is definitely worth seeing on the biggest screen possible with a big bucket of popcorn!

  • Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins

    Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins

    ★★★½

    Snake Eyes GI Joe Origins is a great action film to see, especially on the biggest screen possible! It does have issues of shaky camera work and too many close up shots, but it's a great origin story with Henry Golding turning in a standout performance!

  • Old

    Old

    Old had the potential to be something really original and scary, however M. Night Shyamalan fails to deliver - AGAIN. From the inconsistent rules of the beach to the horrible acting, I couldn't wait for this nightmare vacation to be over. Don't waste your time or money on this letdown. If you really want to experience this, I'd wait for it to go to a streaming service.
