• 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.

  • Gunpowder Milkshake

    Gunpowder Milkshake

    ★★★

    Gunpowder Milkshake looked so fun from the trailer, but ended up lacking in excitement. The slow motion is not what I want during a fight scene when you have kickass women with guns. This was a reoccurring theme throughout the movie that annoyed me. It's a solid film that could've been great if it was handled by a different director.

  • Space Jam: A New Legacy

    Space Jam: A New Legacy

    ★★★

    Space Jam A New Legacy isn't as good as the first movie, however it entertains for a new generation of fans. I can see why LeBron James is animated for half the movie because he has no acting skills, however the Looney Tunes characters always made me laugh! I wish they were introduced into the movie sooner because the beginning was kind of drawn out setting up for later events. Families with children will definitely have a good time watching this together!

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    ★★★★

    Black Widow isn't your typical Marvel film, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There are the much anticipated action scenes, however the focus is more on family and closing out Natasha's story completely. I wanted more action sequences, especially with Red Guardian and Melina. Taskmaster reveal was unexpected, but not fully satisfactory. However, those are minor nitpicks for me. I will miss Scarlett Johansson as our Black Widow, but look forward to Florence Pugh taking over!

  • Shiva Baby

    Shiva Baby

    ★★

    Shiva Baby was annoying to me on all levels from the screaming baby to the nosy relatives and friends. However, what bothered me most was that there was no 3rd act climax that most films achieve. There's no real explanation why our main character chooses her lifestyle or reveal at the end where her parents/relatives find out about it. This is why the movie is only about 80 minutes long. They missed the ending. Wasn't my cup of tea.

  • The Forever Purge

    The Forever Purge

    ★★★

    The Forever Purge is a solid conclusion to this franchise, but slightly underwhelms. Considering this is the last installment, I expected more kills and outlandish circumstances. The diversity is strong, highlighting unknown actors. I recommend to watch if you are a fan of The Purge movies.

  • The Tomorrow War

    The Tomorrow War

    ★★★★

    The Tomorrow War isn't a perfect film, but it was highly entertaining with influence from A Quiet Place, Alien and The Thing. Chris Pratt shines in action roles like this one. More importantly, it showcases one of the best father/daughter relationships I've seen on film. The Tomorrow War is mindless fun that I highly recommend!

  • F9

    F9

    ★★

    F9 confirms that this franchise has officially jumped the shark. Except for the chase sequences and a few touching moments, this movie is missing a basic element - LOGIC. It's definitely a dumb good time, but once they launched Ludacris and Tyrese into space, I checked out and sighed in disappointment.

  • In the Heights

    In the Heights

    ★★

    I know this musical is getting rave reviews and people are loving it, unfortunately I'm not one of them. I will give credit that the film is shot beautifully and has wonderful choreography, but I know I'll never watch this movie again. Every song sounds the same. I was bored. I think I don't vibe with Lin Manuel Miranda's style because I didn't really care for Hamilton either. I can appreciate the pride of where you come from and a sense of community, but In The Heights didn't click with me.

  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★★

    A Quiet Place Part 2 picks up where the first film left off and doesn't stop delivering jump scares, anxiety and tense moments for 90 minutes straight!!!! It's extremely rare when a film is just as good as the original, and John Krasinski has indeed mastered the recipe!

  • Cruella

    Cruella

    ★★★★★

    Cruella is the best live action Disney film that I've seen! Fun and fresh, this movie takes the Cruella character that we grew up with and gives her an amazing origin story that we sympathize with! Emma Stone makes the role of Cruella her own by showcasing some vulnerability before the character turns truly evil. Perfect casting, soundtrack, setting, and costumes! I can't wait to watch it again!!!
