Poster for Long Shot

Long Shot


I’d say this movie is definitely a fresh comedy as a whole, and it might even be the best romantic comedy I’ve seen all year, but I’m not sure about the comedy side.

Poster for UglyDolls



I feel as if this movie ended up being rather traditional in the long run, which is kind of unfortunate, because everything traditional about this movie is due to an area that could’ve easily been improved upon.

Poster for Hulk



In the end, though, the positives don’t quite outweigh the negatives...

Poster for Missing Link

Missing Link


Personally, I thought a couple scenes here and there were funny, which I had a good time with, but I fully understand where I’d be the only one that experienced that, too.

The Hummingbird Project


It’s their attention to the small things that made this film work so well. Not only was the acting subtly great, but so was the camerawork and editing.

Poster for Breakthrough



As I said on my Twitter, I think that, even with the problems it has with typical Christian tropes, the movie still ends up being the best of both worlds because it actually tries to be good.

Poster for Michael



Personally, I find this film incredibly inspired and nostalgic.

Poster for Hellboy



A bad movie is still a bad movie, and Hellboy is just one incoherent sequence after the next.

Poster for Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Hellboy II: The Golden Army


There’s a ton of action, great characters, funny moments, amazingly-shot sequences, crazy impressive makeup, costume design, and practical effects.

Poster for Hellboy



When looking at the movie as a whole, I can at the very least say the movie surprised me, since it is worthwhile…to a degree.

Poster for Into the Forest

Into the Forest


Overall, I’d say the movie did what it set out to do with very good acting and an authentic feeling that the world has permanently changed forever, but the fact that the film has no real narrative made a relatively short film feel extremely long and boring...

Poster for The Silence

The Silence


The lack of concern about how this movie looked, sounded, and ultimately was acted made everything entirely lackluster, lacking any kind of tension whatsoever, which is the main ingredient in a movie like this.

Poster for Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home


It’s beautiful, it’s epic, the characters work really well off each other...

Poster for 400 Days

400 Days


At the end of the day, yes, the movie is nowhere near perfect, and you’ll never see me saying it is.

The Public


It’s not perfect, but for what it was going for, it did a lot of things right, and for that, I’m glad to have seen it.

Poster for Shaft



I was engaged, I was laughing, I was having a decent time with it.

Poster for Play or Die

Play or Die


The strengths in this film lie within its structure. The way that it is written and the way that it looks is honestly impressive in the long term.

Poster for Booksmart



The comedy was on point, though, as biased as that is, it felt as though a lot of work and consideration went directly into the dialogue, helping these characters pop in a way that’s both unique and something members of the target audience can connect with.

Poster for Phenomenon



It has a lot of issues that it runs into, but the idea that it was going for is not only intact, but still works rather well for a modern audience.

Poster for Making Babies

Making Babies


This is a movie that mostly felt like a big waste of time, and it should’ve been avoided at all costs.

Poster for Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel


This is the type of movie that tried probably a little too hard to impliment a lot of ideas found in the source material, turning into something technically a bit sloppy, but is still enjoyable when it comes to the action sequences and sheer beauty in the CGI models of our title character.

Poster for Furie



At the end of the day, the high-octane direction Furie takes definitely helped make the film feel tense, and the visuals, cinematography, editing and even the music also helped capture a very specific tone and feel that is certainly welcome, but the story itself lacked enough to keep the score in the 70’s.. Take that as it is.

Poster for Little



The problem with this theme is that we’ve seen it already, all-too-many times, and Little does little to improve on a rapidly exhausting concept.

Poster for Shazam!



It’s certainly not a terrible movie, though. I had a lot of fun with it.
