    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

    2.5/4

    Fighting with My Family

    3/4


    Immensely likable crowd pleaser. Every young girl should absolutely see this. Never be afraid to follow your dreams. And never judge a book by its cover.

  • The Beach Bum

    The Beach Bum

    2/4


    This film had a few moments of sheer poetry. Mostly, it was just another nasty little creature from Korine with a commendably game cast.

    I was completely taken away by its charm. But Burton’s dark touch felt strangely out of place and, dare I say, downright abusive. I guess that’s what one should expect from a film set around a circus...


    2.5/4

    Pet Sematary

    It isn’t the worst King adaptation. Hell, it isn’t even that bad. I just didn’t care, at all, ever. And a good horror movie should make you care.


    2/4

  • The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

    The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

    Predictably funny but nowhere near as fun as the first. This film exhausted me to no end. I almost fell into a coma. But is it is entertaining? Hell yeah it is. Absolutely.


    3/4

  • How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

    How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

    Doesn’t quite live up to it’s predecessors but The Hidden World finds itself a fitting conclusion to this visually beautiful, family friendly, trilogy.


    3/4

  • Alita: Battle Angel

    Alita: Battle Angel

    So much world-building, and a surprisingly coherent story to follow, make you wonder how this film can feel so flat. It isn’t necessarily boring, it just feels familiar. Not without it’s charms.


    2.5/4

  • Shazam!

    Shazam!

    Incredibly likable DC film is nowhere near as dark as the previous entries and is probably the best of them yet, even if the third act felt a bit like the ol’ run-of-the-mill comic book showdown.


    3/4

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    As a film, it’s nowhere near a masterpiece. As a semi-conclusion to a vast enterprise, it comes damn close. 

    Hair raising thrills, visually resplendent comic book action and some fantastic performances help the three hour runtime fly by. Downey, Evans, Rudd; everyone shines in a film that feels sorrowfully final even if it isn’t. The years have been kind to these heroes thus far. Will the coming ones be kind to the fans or will this massive franchise begin to fizzle our like the Western in the 60’s or slashers in the 80’s? It won’t matter, because they’ll keep coming anyways.

    I actually enjoyed this film quite a bit. I thought it was slick and well acted and the score was beautiful. The polarizing ending might have been a letdown for some but I was fine with it.

    Executed with bravura by an inspired (and inspiring) Peele, this well paced horror is smart, funny and relentlessly creepy. Nyongo (really EVERYONE) is incredibly good here. See it with as large an audience, on as big a screen as possible. Very fun.
