5/5 90% The Nice Guys (2016) "Few genres are more fun than a buddy movie done right. Crowe and Gosling have a blast with these characters and you get to share in the fun. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted May 20, 2016
2.5/5 43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) "I've never played the game. Hopefully it's more fun. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted May 20, 2016
1/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) "A clone of the original. Clones in movies are not always a good thing. And this is proof. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted May 20, 2016
3.5/5 54% Money Monster (2016) "Been there, done. Clooney and Roberts back and forth saves the film and makes it worth a view. But it has two negatives: Absolutely nowhere to go and zip for tension. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted May 13, 2016
3.5/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "Barely fresh and mostly because of the visuals. Ironically, it's a prequel and a sequel to the so-so Snow White and the Huntsman. It's kinda fun. Key word: kinda. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 22, 2016
4/5 32% Criminal (2016) "Kevin Costner's haircut is the worst in movie history and that's criminal. Guilty pleasure for those liking the genre. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 15, 2016
3.5/5 92% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) "Could use a trim but the push that the African American community needs to do something about gangs resonates. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 15, 2016
2.5/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "Just the bare necessities. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 15, 2016
2.5/5 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Hank Williams drinks, makes music, gets married, drinks, makes music, fools around, drinks, gets divorced, etc. and then he dies. Kind of like this movie. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 1, 2016
5/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Terrorists in a house. A little girl is in the way of taking them out. Pummels you with the question is the life of the one more important than the life of the many? " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 1, 2016
1/5 48% Miracles from Heaven (2016) "The real miracle here is that I gave it a 1 rather than a zero like it deserves. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2016
4.5/5 32% The Bronze (2016) "Melissa Rauch is the best low-life character since Billy Bob's Bad Santa. Not for everyone but I couldn't stop laughing. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2016
4/5 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) "Do we always have to do the last book in a series as a two part movie? Or three? Really? This one, however, is the best of the Divergent series movies. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2016
4.5/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "The movie address to find this weekend is 10 Cloverfield Lane. Delightfully entertaining and John Goodman's loose cannon is among his best ever performances. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 11, 2016
4/5 67% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "Funny in places but not really a comedy. This one gives Tina Fey a chance to show off her acting chops. She's fabulous. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 4, 2016
2.5/5 25% London Has Fallen (2016) "Is anyone else tired of terrorist movies? Too close to home. And, worse, this is a sequel to a terrorist threatens the president movie that is just as badly done. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 4, 2016
4.5/5 98% Zootopia (2016) "The motor vehicles department scene alone is worth the price of a ticket. I'm still laughing. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 4, 2016
4/5 79% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "This one is a hoot from start to finish and is loosely based on the true story of British Olympian Eddie Edwards. Key word: loosely. Google the REAL story. It's much more fun! " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 26, 2016
4/5 53% Triple 9 (2016) "Triple 9 starts slow and builds to a nail-biting intensity equal to downing a few triple lattes. And Kate Winslet is unrecognizable. How fun is that? " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 26, 2016
2.5/5 12% Gods Of Egypt (2016) "Alex Proyas apologized for not using actual Egyptians in Egyptian roles. Few of us care. A more important apology might be for the movie's third act. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 26, 2016
1/5 91% The Witch (2016) "This is like watching -- in the biblical sense -- a King James version of a horror movie. It's getting critical raves but it made me want to go home and take a shower. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 19, 2016
1/5 49% How To Be Single (2016) "Rebel Wilson is the draw for this 20 to 30-something rom-com. I'm a fan but she's awful in this one. However, the movie is awful so maybe it doesn't matter. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/5 24% Zoolander 2 (2016) "Fresh. Barely. Two things. Why make a sequel 15-years after the fact? Second. You do have to give a film extra credit when it manages to even make Will Ferrell funny. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 12, 2016
5/5 83% Deadpool (2016) "Deadpool had me laughing from the clever opening credits to Ryan Reynolds' just as clever credit roll outtake. This is what Spider-man's two franchises should have been. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 12, 2016
1/5 11% The Choice (2016) "I don't read Nicholas Sparks books and can't say he shouldn't keep writing them. I do see the movies. I have expertise there and can say emphatically, stop making them. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 5, 2016
2.5/5 42% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "An outrageous idea that could have used a better sense of humor. That said, it's better than Jane Austen which isn't saying much because it's still Jane Austen. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 5, 2016
5/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Ethan and Joel Coen flashback to 1950s Hollywood. It's their best film since O' Brother, Where Art Thou? and when the credits roll we all tip our hats and say Hail, Caesar. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 5, 2016
4/5 17% The 5th Wave (2016) "Must've been in the right mood for teen-focused alien-invasion-end-of-the-world-movie. What will be a trilogy of movies -- or more -- is off to a better start than its peers. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 22, 2016
3.5/5 51% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "The story of what happened in Benghazi. Not political. Makes no judgments. Safe for liberals. Somewhat disappointing to conservatives. Overall, too long but a good movie. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 15, 2016
4/5 82% The Revenant (2015) "The Revenant is a revenge in a dish definitely served cold. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 8, 2016
5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "After George Lucas put is to sleep with episodes I, II and III, the Force is definitely awake. The most fun I've had in a theater this year. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Dec 18, 2015
2.5/5 42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "At the heart of In the Heart of the Sea is Moby Dick. It bored me as a book, as movies, TV shows and in some cartoons, and now Ron Howard has done the same thing. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Dec 10, 2015
5/5 76% Trumbo (2015) "Just hand Bryan Cranston the Oscar, the Golden Globe, etc. The acting and the story about the importance of protecting the First Amendment is the year's best movie. So far. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 26, 2015
2.5/5 97% Brooklyn (2015) "Zzzzzzz. Wonderful performances but do we really care about a teenager from Ireland trying to decide between guys, one on one continent, the other on another? " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 26, 2015
4/5 94% Creed (2015) "The 7th Rocky movie looks pretty much like all the rest but it's so much fun and always a real treat to see Sly Stallone do his most famous character. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 26, 2015
1/5 25% Victor Frankenstein (2015) " A worn out concept has been done about 75 times. Most are bottom-feeder bad and this one is close to the bottom of the bottom feeders. Worst movie of the year so far. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 26, 2015
3.5/5 76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "An underwhelming plot is overwhelmed by an incredible mix of animation and gorgeous, real-life cinematography and movie locations. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 26, 2015
5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) "Simply put, one of the best -- if not THE best -- movies of the year. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 20, 2015
4/5 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) "The remake of the 2009 Argentinian thriller isn't as good. Thanks to great performances and a terrific premise, it's a nice alternative to standing in line for Mockingjay. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 20, 2015
2.5/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "Proof this should have been one, long, three-hour movie. For a movie series ending, this one moves very, very slowly and almost sleepily toward a not so interesting climax. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 20, 2015
2.5/5 33% My All American (2015) "Fumbles the opening kickoff and never recovers. Manages a field goal at the end but no touchdown. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 13, 2015
2.5/5 43% The 33 (2015) "It's 33 minutes too long and does a poor job of mining anything interesting out of this very emotional and heartwarming story. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 13, 2015
3/5 19% Love the Coopers (2015) "Barely fresh. I liked the Coopers but didn't love them. Until it gets to the deadly dumb and predictable Christmas dinner, it wasn't bad. Great mix of music, too. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 13, 2015
5/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "Charles M. Schulz would have loved this one. It's a terrific tribute to him, his characters and his fans. The Tolstoy bit had me laughing out loud. Don't miss this one. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 6, 2015
2.5/5 65% Spectre (2015) "I'm in the minority but Bond 24 looks like Bond 23, Bond 22, Bond ... etc. And it wastes Christoph Waltz who could have given us a villain as good as Gert Frobe's Goldfinger. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Nov 6, 2015
2.5/5 62% Truth (2015) "The Dan Rather biopic is really more about Mary Mapes whose basic journalism failure cost both of them their jobs. It's called Truth. Not so sure that's an accurate title. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Oct 30, 2015
3.5/5 34% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "Must be political week at the movies. This, like Truth, is a political movie only it's set in Bolivia and is true but it isn't. Gives Sandra Bullock an acting stretch. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Oct 30, 2015
3.5/5 29% Burnt (2015) "Cooking movies always inspire me to want to cook. This one didn't. It's not bad but it's not up to my cooking movie standards. Promises steak and delivers a burger. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Oct 30, 2015
1/5 8% Rock the Kasbah (2015) "I know I'm in the minority about Bill Murray's talent. He's just not funny and this is the least funny work he's done in a career full of not funny movies. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Oct 23, 2015
1/5 16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) "It's as dumb and bad as it sounds. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
