Poster for The BFG

The BFG

5.0

2016, Adventure, Fantasy

Overly filled with whimsy and goodness, this film is a neutering of the source material, and hangs on due to Rylance’s superb transformation.

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Suspense

Buckle in young’ins, it’s gonna be a long one today.

The Great Wall

1.6

2016, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

Matt Damon with an unplaceable accent and a ponytail has a predictable character arc in this effects driven movie.

Poster for Fist Fight

Fist Fight

2.5

2017, Comedy

Charlie Day is Charlie Day, and Ice Cube is Ice Cube. I don’t think there is much else of note.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

5.0

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Comedy

Desperately attempting to fix all the things that were wrong in the previous entry, there is a gentle reboot here that ties up several loose ends but fails to capture all the magic.

2017.06.02

Poster for 1 Mile To You

1 Mile To You

7.5

2017, Drama, Love

Captures the true spirit of running while maintaining a story that has a few too many plates in the air.

Poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

2.5

2011, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

A film that is losing the magic, losing the effects, and losing the point of the whole series.

Poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

2007, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

A movie that is beginning to falter under the weight of its special effects and its plotlines.

Poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

6.7

2006, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

Fun, with a terrific set of antogonists, you slowly start to feel a bit overwhelmed by it all.

2017.05.30

Poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

9.1

2003, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

With terrific acting between Depp and Rush, as well as incredibly original characters, and skilled pivoting between the moments that matter.

Poster for The Island

The Island

2.5

1980, Adventure, Drama, Horror, Action, Suspense, Mystery

Michael Caine turns in an insane performance in this lost forgotten movie of the 1980s.

2017.05.26

Poster for Against All Flags

Against All Flags

4.2

1952, Adventure, Action

Beginning to show signs of the drinking that plagued him, Flynn somehow still buoys up this picture from being the complete mess it should have been.

Poster for Captain Blood

Captain Blood

10

1935, Adventure, Love

Still an exemplary pirate movie, it will forever be a standard to which I hold the swashbuckling genre.

2017.05.22

Poster for The Island

The Island

6.7

2005, Adventure, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

This fever dream of a Michael Bay film has tons of highlights despite being messy and having nonsense throughout.

2017.05.17

Poster for Oculus

Oculus

2013, Horror

A killer mirror movie (ummmm) that somehow turns out scarier than you expect.

2017.05.16

Poster for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

7.5

2016, Adventure, Fantasy

A decent addition to the new HP series – it never approaches the series at its height, but is serviceable throughout.

2017.05.15

Poster for Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein

9.1

1974, Comedy, Science fiction

Comedy at a full-blown tilt.

2017.05.12

Poster for Shut In

2016, Drama, Suspense

A decent idea with a terrible amount of red herrings and false thrills.

2017.05.10

Poster for The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers

One relentless chase scene, with strong memorable characters and excellent musical performances.

2017.05.08

Poster for Zodiac

Zodiac

6.7

2007, Drama, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

Never generates the tension it so desperately needs, this thriller consistently lingers on characters incessantly.

2017.05.05

Poster for Joy

Joy

3.3

2015, Drama, Comedy

Coming across as completely unnecessary, this film stars the David O. Russell trio once more as they try to keep the movie relevant.

2017.05.03

Poster for Allied

2016, Drama, Action, Suspense, Love, War

Desperately needing some emotion that doesn’t feel stale and overused.

5.8

2016, Drama, Science fiction, Love

Falling short of all it could have been, this film rides its stars charisma to being eternally average.

Poster for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

7.5

2017, Fantasy, Drama, Action

It’s got some good action, good humor, an easy, recognizable story, and a great score.
