3/5 76% Lights Out (2016) "Won't make you want to look under the bed, in the closet or leave the lights on when you go to bed but it's not bad. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 22, 2016
4/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Doesn't boldly go where other Star Treks have gone, but hey, it's Star Trek so what's not to love? Fun film and the second best of the now three reboots. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 22, 2016
4/5 68% The Infiltrator (2016) "A terrific nail-biter with Bryan Cranston leading exceptional performances from a very good cast. Intense times 10 and digs into places most undercover movies don't. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 15, 2016
3.5/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "A large percentage of the moviegoing public is gonna hear the call and who're they gonna call? Ghostbusters. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 15, 2016
1/5 39% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) "Mike and Dave need more than wedding dates and we'll start with a plot that isn't stale, humor that isn't recycled or that's aimed at someone over the age of 15. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 8, 2016
3.5/5 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "Not much is secret. The first 20-minutes is funny and there are a few funny bits after. But you've already seen most of them in the trailers and the product push commercials. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 8, 2016
4.5/5 73% The BFG (2016) "Sweet movie and Steven Spielberg makes you believe that little girl is actually on the hand of a giant. Great family film in a year lacking them. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 1, 2016
3/5 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) "In my review, I avoided the temptation to compare the movie to this year's real life election year. Barely. Of the now three, this is the best and not bad for this genre. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 1, 2016
2/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "Can't resist the word play: nothing to go ape over. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 1, 2016
4/5 43% Free State of Jones (2016) "Supposedly a "true" story. While debate rages, the movie is pretty good and it's an interesting view of the Civil War from people who thought everyone ought to be free. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 24, 2016
4/5 68% Central Intelligence (2016) "Not a lot of intelligence - central or otherwise - but you'll laugh a lot anyway. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 17, 2016
5/5 95% Finding Dory (2016) "Kudos to Ellen. It's an Oscar-worthy performance. Finding Dory is so well-done and beautifully filmed that you forget the main characters aren't real fish and other sea life. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 17, 2016
5/5 90% The Lobster (2016) "Hunger Games. Maze Runner. Divergent. This is how a dystopian movie ought to be made. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 10, 2016
4/5 29% Warcraft (2016) "It's The Lord of the Rings on steroids. Shallow plot, but hey, it's based on a game so how deep can it be? Unlike some, I was able to overlook the flaws and had a good time. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 10, 2016
1/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Looks like every other horror movie of this ilk. I was more entertained by the stoned lady two seats down who screamed non-stop. " ‐ Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 10, 2016
2/5 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) "All effects. No substance. No fun. " ‐ Tri-City Herald

Posted May 26, 2016
5/5 91% 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 57% 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 16% 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 31% 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 90% 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 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

Posted Mar 18, 2016
4.5/5 33% 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 13% 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 68% 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 26% 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 80% 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 55% 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 16% 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 23% 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 84% 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 12% 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 16% 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 50% 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 43% 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 74% 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
