92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) This is truly a car film. It really goes into that the nitty-gritty of car racing and whatnot, but it doesn't bog you down necessarily with information. - GET Jaby EDIT

69% Joker (2019) All the positive things you've heard about [Joaquin Phoenix] as the Joker are true. He is absolutely fantastic... That performance alone is worth the price of admission. - GET Jaby EDIT

67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Before you walk into the theater and sit down, you know exactly what kind of film you're in for. And it's a lot of fun. - GET Jaby EDIT

97% Toy Story 4 (2019) The animation was just so good, that alone makes the film worthwhile before the emotional aspect... - GET Jaby EDIT

42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) On the surface, it's really well-made with a competent cast, and the camerawork paired with the action to make you feel right there...it's a summer film, don't go in expecting anything to make sense. - GET Jaby EDIT

57% Brightburn (2019) I was hoping this character was going to be organically informed...it was a bold experiment but it didn't really have a story, and it should have been a short film. - GET Jaby EDIT

79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) 5/5 as a family film, 4/5 from a technical standpoint, but my own more cynical review would be 3/5... - GET Jaby EDIT

61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) It definitely moved me, it was emotional, but while watching I kept feeling that this was a little bit bleached, a little bit edgeless...sanitized, it feels like a comic book in a way... - GET Jaby EDIT

92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) I liked the movie quite a bit. It was longer than I would've liked...you really got to dive into [Peter Parker] and it genuinely felt like you were a part of his high school life. - GET Jaby EDIT

92% Beasts of No Nation (2015) Needless to say, but Alba is so damn amazing. For the most part, he was convincing, he was totally committed to that role. - GET Jaby EDIT

88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) One of the things I found so cool was how the music was in context with everything happening at the time...seeing it in context with the events unfolding...I don't know if you can ask for much more. - GET Jaby EDIT

77% Keanu (2016) The action actually tries to compete with John Wick, which was awesome. I enjoyed it, watch it at least once. - GET Jaby EDIT

69% mother! (2017) It's so intense that I don't know if I can watch it again, but I definitely recommend it to any film buff or any Aronofsky fan. It definitely will make you think and get you talking. - GET Jaby EDIT

26% The Nun (2018) I didn't like the main actor, or at least, I couldn't hear half of what he was saying because of the accent. A lot of the dialogue was very hokey to me. - GET Jaby EDIT

27% Suicide Squad (2016) Something's off here. It doesn't feel like the editor and the director were on the same page at all...entirely too much exposition and not enough of the story. - GET Jaby EDIT

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) If anything it was a bit TOO much action. I would have like to substitute that with more story. - GET Jaby EDIT

89% Doctor Strange (2016) You're hit with how visually stunning this damn movie is. I'm tempted to go back and watch in IMAX or 3D. - GET Jaby EDIT

88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The comedy worked very well for the film, but I can't help the feeling that some of those comedic scenes went a little long. - GET Jaby EDIT
