If the Stan Lee opening credits receive more applause and creates more emotion than the entire film, you might have a problem…”Captain Marvel”

“Fighting with My Family” is an awesome feel good British family film disguised as a raunchy wrestling flick.
The “How to Train Your Dragon” series just become the greatest trilogy of all-time.
“Alita: Battle Angel” is an over-long tech demo for the new “Avatar” sequels
“Isn’t it Romantic” is a perfect 90’s rom-com…too bad it’s 2019.
“Cold Pursuit” is more reminiscent to a Martin McDonagh (“In Bruges” / “Seven Psychopaths”) flick than your standard Liam Neeson “Taken” thriller.
“They Shall Not Grow Old” has more walking than all three LOTR films combined.
“The Kid Who Would Be King” is not quite up to the classic 80’s kid flicks it inspires to be, but it is still a swash-buckling, special-effect-heavy good time that deserved a much bigger turnout at the box office last weekend.
“A Dog’s Way Home” is a predictable tear-inducing Hallmark style movie…and there is nothing wrong with that.
Good Idea: Creating a sequel to M. Night’s best movie of all time, “Unbreakable.”
Bad Idea: Setting the sequel in a mental institution with no plot progression for an hour plus.
“The Upside” continues to prove that the Rotten Tomato vs. Audience Score system is broken.
“The Mule” is elevated over a serviceable Clint Eastwood film thanks to an emotional ending that doesn’t run out of gas.
The only reason to see the rambling political tonally inconsistent “Vice” is Batman…I mean Christian Bale.
“Aquaman” has a Ring of Fire…underwater and quotes “How I Met Your Mother” with a #ChallengeAccepted reference. Therefore it is the best movie in the new DC universe.
70% “The Iron Giant” heart
20% “Transformers” bad action
10% eighties cheese
Making “Bumblebee” a 100% fun summer…scratch that, winter popcorn movie.
“But what about the Magic?”
- What is a quote from “The Greatest Showman” and disappointingly my #SpoilerFreeReview of “Mary Poppins Returns”
Julia Robert’s acting is the only thing that is back in “Ben is Back.”
“Anna and the Apocalypse” zombie survival guide checklist:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer references ✔️
High school musical spoofing ✔️
Shaun of the dead over the top violence ✔️
Broadway show tunes ✔️
Jazz hands inspired dance numbers ✔️
A near cult classic ✔️
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is not only the best animated film of the year, it’s also the best super-hero movie in a long time that dares to be different. Oh, and did I mention that it miraculously captures the multi-verse in a way that is equally as clever as “Rick and Morty?”
“The Favourite” - The bunnies give the best performance
