Gemini Man

VERDICT Depending on where you’re sitting, the admittedly-incredible “de-aging” tech used with Will Smith is either game changing or apocalyptic. That’s all there really is to talk about with this quagmire of a film. I’m sure there are worse ways to spend 2 hours than if you happen to catch it on streaming or a […]

Creed II

VERDICT It was always going to be nearly impossible to follow up on the lightning strike that was Creed. The sequel may not pack quite the same punch, but the performances and tried-and-true formula still make for an incredible time. Make sure you’ve seen the first film, and then buy the ticket. REVIEW Following up on 2015’s Creed seemed […]

Ralph Breaks the Internet

VERDICT A heartfelt story about connectivity and the trials of friendship struggles against a familiar-ish plot and questionable advertising. It’s sweet nonetheless. Buy the ticket and go see it with your best friend. REVIEW You probably didn’t see The Emoji Movie. That was a good choice; it’s a 90-minute advertisement for internet companies that has the […]

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Crimes of Grindewald

VERDICT The foundations of something good are present, but the house that lies above is a complete mess. A horde of uninteresting characters exposit their way through far too many mundane plot lines. But hey, it looks good. Wait till it hits streaming, if you must. REVIEW The first clue as to whether this film […]

The Grinch

The Grinch

VERDICT Like most of Illumination’s works, The Grinch delivers on adorableness, and kids will will enjoy it just fine. It fails to add anything substantial though, and the same story can be accomplished in far less time. Stick with the original. REVIEW Illumination has proven since 2010’s Despicable Me to be really good at three key things: creating […]

A Simple Favor

VERDICT An undeniably intriguing dynamic between Kendrick and Lively is unable to save a movie plagued by baffling mixture of tone and an unsalvageable ending. Only buy the ticket if you’re a super-fan of the leads. REVIEW What Works: Lively’s beguiling performance, her chemistry with Kendrick, and the occasional subversion. Blake Lively is this movie, through and through. […]
