F - - - 53% The Lion King (2019) Just about every choice Favreau made as director was the wrong choice, and his insistence on '100% realism' in a film in which the animals talk, sing, and do choreography makes my head hurt. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT

Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2018
F--- 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The Last Knight very well might be the worst movie in the history of cinema. It changes aspect ratios at least 500 times. Seriously. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
A 94% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) An epic conclusion to an epic trilogy that fully cements Serkis as the best motion capture performer for now and forever. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
A+ 92% Dunkirk (2017) This is a story that needed to be told in a way that only Christopher Nolan can bring, and his non-linear style only enhances my desire for multiple viewings. - Mad About Movies Podcast EDIT
