  • Spies in Disguise

    Spies in Disguise

    ★★★½

    it was a lot of fun! Tom Holland and Will Smith played off each nicely. A little predictable at time but Surprisingly A lot of comedy for adults and it was still enjoyable for the whole family.

  • Honey Boy

    Honey Boy

    ★★★★

    Honey Boy was far and away one of my absolute favorites of the year. Show Labeouf deserves so many awards for his portrayal of his own father but also for writing this beautiful screenplay. Lucas Hedges continues to be a young actor on the rise and Noah Jupe is a huge standout in the film. The true story of a father and son in Hollywood brought all kinds of emotions but nevertheless was amazing. GO SEE THIS MOVIE IF YOU CAN!

  • Jojo Rabbit

    Jojo Rabbit

    ★★★½

    Loved Jojo rabbit! The story is rich with characters and comedy while still giving heart and light to its dark subject matter. For sure a best picture contender and a must see

  • Ford v Ferrari

    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★½

    While true to its story and anchored by great performances from Christian Bale and Matt Damon, it seemed a little long and followed a familiar arch. Definitely a movie made for people with competitive bones. Overall though, while the movie didn’t break any new ground, it’s a fun feature and a fun bit of history.

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★

    I got to see “Knives Out” tonight! It’s a brilliant whodunnit with a great twist! I loved the direction, set design, costume design but the best part was the cast! They each crafted a character so well and they all came to life. As a Jamie Lee Curtis fan she was of course my fav, but man Chris Evans was phenomenal. I definitely recommend this one!

  • A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    ★★★★½

    “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” is one of the best movies I’ve seen all year. A heartfelt story about a cynical journalist who discovers Mr Rogers and his show, straying away from the traditional biopic just enough so we can see the impact Mr Rogers had. The movie was so insightful and uplifting, it had me happy crying at the end. Director Marielle Heller proves again to be one of the most creative and insightful directors working today. And…

  • Frozen II

    Frozen II

    ★★★★

    Frozen 2” blew my expectations out of the water! This new, slightly darker story was so rich and well developed. All the new songs are catchy, yet still drive the plot. My particular favorite is a song called “Lost in the Woods” performed by Jonathan Groff (Christoph) who (finally)got a song in the sequel. Olaf is the perfect sidekick still, never being overused, and serving as both a comic relief, and a pure joy to watch. And finally, both Elsa…

  • Charlie's Angels

    Charlie's Angels

    ★★★

    An amazing action comedy, with great performances and a fresh take on the franchise thanks to director Elizabeth Banks.

  • Last Christmas

    Last Christmas

    ★★½

    The screenplay is a bit  recycled from a lot of other Christmas tropes, but the stellar cast make it enjoyable.

  • Doctor Sleep

    Doctor Sleep

    ★★★½

    Stephen King movie, “Doctor Sleep”
    Is visually stunning and a top notch sequel to “The Shining” with a standout performance from Rebecca Ferguson. I enjoyed every minute! Highly recommend for horror fans!

  • Harriet

    Harriet

    ★★½

    Missing some of the lesser known interesting facts of her life, but still delivering a solid tribute with an Oscar worthy performance by Cynthia Erivo.

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★½

    A journey through isolation and the psyche performed by brilliant actors at the heigh of their game. A must see for Oscars 2020 and cinephiles.
