7/10 60% Then Came You (2019) Then Came You may be simple, and may seem rushed considering the subject matter, but it shows the progression of a great friendship amidst terrible tragedy with such heart and emotion it is hard not to fall for its charms. - The Young Folks EDIT

4/10 9% Replicas (2019) If this story had been handled by any one of the filmmakers behind one of the other science fiction indie darlings of recent years, Replicas could have been made into something special. - The Young Folks EDIT

3/10 48% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) The biggest failure of this series, particularly in this entry, is that Columbia Pictures and Sony have lost the spirit of what made the Goosebumps novels popular and entertaining; the horror. - The Young Folks EDIT

73% Sleepless in Seattle (1993) While I have returned to watch my favourite moments play out again and again, I am always rewarded by the subtlety and beauty in the scenes I don't remember. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 93% The Endless (2018) Every viewer is going to come to terms with the truths of this narrative in different ways and in this case, that will make for some very intriguing conversation and debate; a result I believe Justin and Aaron had been yearning for. - The Young Folks EDIT

6/10 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Pacific Rim: Uprising, shows promise in its attempts at building on what del Toro started, but ultimately, those attempts fall flat. Pacific Rim: Uprising suffers due to a lack of the magic that was delivered by its creators spark. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 30% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) The biggest cause of the film's problems lies in the B story in which Amy's father, played by John Lithgow sporting a horrendous Australian accent, shows up trying to reconnect. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 86% American Made (2017) Unsurprisingly, what keeps the film from succumbing to its pace and tying everything together is Tom Cruise. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) You'll laugh and even sometimes roll your eyes and the ridiculousness on screen, but that is exactly what we want with Fast and Furious, and in that, The Fate of the Furious delivers. - The Young Folks EDIT

7/10 20% The Shack (2017) In this case, religion shouldn't be a deciding factor on whether or not you give this film a chance. - The Young Folks EDIT

8/10 73% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) The animation quality from Illumination seems to be getting better with each project they release and this film is no exception. - The Young Folks EDIT

7.5/10 74% Trumbo (2015) Director Jay Roach cannot decide whether he wants this film to be a drama with a comedic moments, or a comedic satire with dramatic heft and that divide made way for somewhat of a staggered experience. - The Young Folks EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List (2015) ...this is a flawed film that has some pretty good performances. The charm that Victoria Justice brought to the screen in the end made most of the movie for me - The Young Folks EDIT
