3.5/5 85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Unfortunately the film takes a while to find out what new stories and themes it would like to tell the audience. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 37% Glass (2019) Glass" ends up being the weakest of the three films, but it's still an entertaining finale. - MediaMikes EDIT

1.5/5 31% Welcome to Marwen (2018) Moments that should move you emotionally fall short because of how tonally misshaped "Welcome to Marwen" is. - MediaMikes EDIT

1.5/5 80% Ben is Back (2018) No matter how bad the dialogue gets, Roberts and Hedges tow a fine line to keep their characters within the realm of "maybe this could happen." - MediaMikes EDIT

4.5/5 96% Roma (2018) So much transpires in such little time, and sometimes in such few words, that "Roma" feels like the most poignant chapter of an autobiography. - MediaMikes EDIT

4/5 94% The Favourite (2018) There is a lot of high intrigue between the triad of woman. - MediaMikes EDIT

4.5/5 91% Widows (2018) There is no small role in "Widows" as the likes of Colin Farrell, Jacki Weaver, Matt Walsh, and others provide another layer for viewers to peel back. - MediaMikes EDIT

2.5/5 57% The Grinch (2018) Just like Ron Howard's film in 2000, this film doesn't hold a candle to the 1966 television classic. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Midway to Heaven (Heaven is Waiting) (2011) "Mid90s" is the kind of movie "Lords of Dogtown" wishes it was, even though the target audience might fight me on that unpopular opinion. - MediaMikes EDIT

2/5 79% Alpha (2018) "Alpha" could serve as a starting point for young ones interested in human history, but their parents may find themselves rolling their eyes or checking their phones. - MediaMikes EDIT

2.5/5 32% The Predator (2018) I had a real fun time while watching "The Predator," but as I think about it in hindsight, I'm finding it troublingly easy to nitpick it to death. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) This is the kind of film that could be cherished by younger audiences for generations, and honestly if it sends a few kids to a library in search of the book, that's always a bonus. - MediaMikes EDIT

1.5/5 28% Night School (2018) "Night School" is stretched thin by its run-time and lack of comedic imagination. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2018
1.5/5 18% The Darkest Minds (2018) It might please a younger audience that's new to the genre, but for those of us who've seen these films come out every year since "The Hunger Games," the air around these young adult films continues to stagnate. - MediaMikes EDIT

4/5 99% Eighth Grade (2018) My experience with this film was like the first time I watched Burnham's stand-up. It was something I had seen before, but it felt new because of how personal and forward it was. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) This film is like a palate cleanser after the dark end to "Infinity War." Rudd, in the role of dad and hero, is undeniably likable as he charms both the good and bad guys. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) This film is like a palate cleanser after the dark end to "Infinity War." - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
1.5/5 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The film treats the audience like a Marvel movie crowd, expecting us to have kept track of every idiosyncratic character, name, place and word. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
3.5/5 56% Tag (2018) There's a lot of manic energy in "Tag," sometimes culminating into some funny chase sequences and absurd action pieces. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
2.5/5 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) There are a few things that work in "Hotel Artemis," and in much better hands, it would have been an unforgettable film. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
4/5 64% Victor Crowley (2017) I can't give too much away because "Victor Crowley" is meant to be experienced instead of hearing my pitch as to why you should see it. - MediaMikes EDIT

3/5 80% Ruin Me (2018) Of course, it wouldn't be a true horror movie if something didn't go wrong, and things go south quickly - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted May 20, 2018
2/5 88% Annihilation (2018) Throughout "Annihilation," I kept putting off these nagging issues with the script and structure of the story in the hopes that the ending would provide a worthy payoff to some of my frustration. - MediaMikes EDIT

2/5 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) The movie really doesn't work until the final act, after we've had to suffer through a lot of confusing tone changes, half-hearted story beats and dead end CGI spectacles - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted May 20, 2018
2.5/5 73% Terrifier (2018) There's not much to the story and there's certainly not much to the plot. "Terrifier" is a vehicle for Damien Leone's crew to exhaust their violence and gore budget. - MediaMikes EDIT

3/5 21% Midnight Sun (2018) "Midnight Sun" is a movie I would generally nitpick to death, but it managed to take me out of my sardonic element. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted May 20, 2018
4/5 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Visually, "Isle of Dogs" is one of Anderson's best. Narratively, it's sometimes deflating, but still overwhelmingly charming and loveable. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted May 20, 2018
2.5/5 51% Rampage (2018) . But just like the old "Rampage" arcade game I played in my youth, I don't necessarily feel like I should ever revisit this one or reflect on it as anything more than a cash grab. - MediaMikes EDIT

2/5 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) Even if you enjoy yourself, you won't be quoting this film 17 years from now or asking for "Super Troopers 3." - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted May 20, 2018
4.5/5 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) There's a surprising amount of emotion and laughs mixed into the film's bleakness and knockdown fights. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted May 20, 2018
2.5/5 51% 12 Strong (2018) "12 Strong" does a passable job telling a story about unsung heroes in the early days of that war, but there's the lingering feeling that the soldiers portrayed in the film deserved a much better retelling of their struggles. - MediaMikes EDIT

2.5/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) It's unfortunate that one of the greatest actors to ever grace the silver screen will end his career on a less than memorable film. - MediaMikes EDIT

3/5 57% The Commuter (2018) Without Neeson or director Jaume Collett-Serra, "The Commuter" would have certainly been a stumbling mess. - MediaMikes EDIT

2.5/5 49% Downsizing (2017) "Downsizing" may be a fun movie to discuss after watching, but that doesn't necessarily translate into an entertaining film. - MediaMikes EDIT

4/5 84% Darkest Hour (2017) Underneath heavy makeup, Oldman is able to capture Churchill's warmth, impatience, generosity and unpredictability. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" is a passable film, but it doesn't make the case for a potential franchise or another sequel. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Del Toro's "Beauty and the Beast" take for adults hits and misses in its third act when everything comes crashing together. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) "The Disaster Artist" is a film where you have to continuously remind yourself that the characters portrayed on-screen are real people and that the events that transpired actually happened. - MediaMikes EDIT

4.5/5 97% Coco (2017) Coco" takes a while to get going, but once it does, it manages to hit every high note along the way. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
4.5/5 91% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) For a film with such dark thematic content, like rape, murder, racism and hatred, there's a lot of witty dialogue and wicked humor. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
2/5 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) One of the most impressive ensemble casts of the year seems lost in sweeping CGI landscapes and overstuffed set pieces. - MediaMikes EDIT

4/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Hela may be the blueprints needed for a Marvel universe in sore need of a compelling, yet dangerous villain. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 63% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Most of "Goodbye Christopher Robin" is mired in turmoil, with happy moments and achievements sprouting up few and far between. - MediaMikes EDIT

4/5 93% A Silent Voice (Koe no katachi) (2017) Despite clocking in over two hours, "A Silent Voice" is a brisk journey through high school drama and emotional maturity. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 86% American Made (2017) For historians, "American Made" is pulpy trash, glorifying a drug smuggler turned informant, but for everyone else it's a funny and entertaining take on a biographical crime tale. - MediaMikes EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2017
3.5/5 53% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) The action isn't entertaining in the traditional sense, but in a fun, manic Saturday morning cartoon kind of way. - MediaMikes EDIT

1.5/5 34% Home Again (2017) The only thing missing from "Home Again" is a canned laugh track, applause and other phony audience reactions. - MediaMikes EDIT

4/5 91% Good Time (2017) h neon light bathes the dark New York City night as the film soaks up a matching retro soundtrack from the 80's. - MediaMikes EDIT

3.5/5 51% The Glass Castle (2017) There are predictable beats, but the film throws a few curveballs and avoids several cliché moments, settling for a more genuine dramatic effect. - MediaMikes EDIT
